Enhancing The Performance Of Parabolic Trough Collectors Using Nanofluids And Turbulators

Parabolic trough solar collector (PTC) is the most mature solar concentrating technology for useful heat production, up to 400oC. The PTC is used in a great variety of applications like solar cooling, industrial heat process, chemical process, desalination, and electricity production applications. The critical point for the further establishment of this technology is the enhancement of its thermal efficiency in order to make it a viable investment. The thermal enhancement methods of the solar collector are mainly associated with the...

Analyzing How Tea And Mint Infusion Effects Element Content In Beverages

Popular medicinal plants and their infusions have been the subject of significant scientific interest due to their therapeutic value for the prevention and treatment of diseases and health disorders. However, chemical compositions of medicinal plant species are complex. In addition to being sources of organic compounds, such as polyphenols, flavonoids, proteins, vitamins carbohydrates among others, medicinal plant infusions are also rich sources of several elements, including major dietary metals (Ca, K and Mg), minor and trace minerals (Cu, Fe, Mn,...
