Investigation of Flow Rate and Cooling Water Temperature Effects on the Process Parameters in Centrifuge Machine, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Otukesh, Mohammad ; Safdari, Jaber
Centrifuge is a method in which great gravitational-like forces are used. Gravitational forces which cause molecules to move and are relevant to molecular weight; can cause isotope separation. The separation of light isotope from heavy one is done with a centrifugal field which produces a pressure gradient for the gas mixture. Pressure gradient is different for each of the isotopes due to the dependence of pressure gradient to the mass of the materials. But the separation in this way is very limited. The capacity of separation can be brought up by producing an additional axial flow in the rotor. This rotational flow can be produced with internal or external incitement. Rotational flow with...
Uranium Bioleaching from a Low Grade Ore
Sharif University of Technology
Roosta Azad, Reza
In this work, bioleaching was used to extract valuable uranium from a low grade ore. Bioleaching experiments were carried out in batch cultures using a native strain of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans. Experiments were conducted to investigate the effects of rotation speed, initial redox potential, initially added Fe concentration, particle size, pH, temperature, pulp density, and culture type. In the shake flask systems, over 99% of the uranium was bioleached in 48 hours at some conditions. Uninoculated flasks gave only around 25% leaching. At each study, uranium and iron concentrations, solution oxidation– reduction potential and pH were measured. The results showed that 150 rpm, d80=100 ...
A Detailed Study on Extraction of Uranium from Mother Leach Liquor (of Uranium Mills) by TOA Extractant and Development of a Thermodynamical Model for it, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Samadfam, Mohammad ; Safdari, Jaber ; Mallah, Hassan
In many uranium mines such as gachin-bandarabbas, sulfuric acid is used for leaching operation on ore after crushing operation. This leach liquor, containing uranium, is extracted by specific solvent, including extractant like TOA. However, this operation, named Amex, have been used for many years, there is a vacancy for a detailed thermodynamical studying on uranium extraction from leach liquor.To have a thermodynamical model, we need information about the equilibrium concentration of all the components that may have effect on uranium extraction and also concentration of solvent, pH, phase ratio and activity coefficient alteration. This model must have the ability to predict the equilibrium...

In many uranium mines such as gachin-bandarabbas, use sulfuric acid for leaching operation on ore. This leach liquor, containing uranium, is extracted by organic solvent, such as D2EHPA (dapex process ).althogh this process have being used for many years, there is a vacancy for detailed thermodynamical studying on uranium extraction of uranium from leach liquor. To have a thermodynamical model, we need information on equilibrium concentration of all component that may have effect on uranium extraction in addition we need concentration of solvent , pH, phase ratio and activity coefficient.such a model must have the ability to predict the equilibrium concentration in alloperation condition....
Study of Effects of Operational Parameters on Flooding in Pertraction of Dysprosium in a Vertical Pulsed Packed Column, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Bastani, Dariush ; Safdari, Jaber ; Raji, Maliheh
Pulsed packed columns are among the most important devices used in liquid-liquid extraction, with wide application in petroleum and petrochemical industries, metal salt extraction, pharmaceutical industries, metallurgy, and other areas. Liquid-membrane technology is an alternative separation technique to the liquid-liquid extraction for the extraction and recovery of metal ions from aqueous solutions. There are three main types of liquid membranes: emulsion liquid membrane (ELM), Bulk Liquid Membrane (BLM), and Supported Liquid Membrane (SLM). Liquid emulsion membrane is one of the pertraction methods with phase dispersion. It is a three-phase dispersion system, consisting: external phase,...
Bioleaching of Vanadium from Multimetal Ore of Saghand Mine, M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology ; Roosta Azad, Reza ; Safdari, Jaber ; Firouzzare, Mohammad Ali
In this work bioleaching of vanadium has been done from Saghand Ore (Anomaly II). Leaching of vanadium was done in several stages. First, Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans and Acidithiobacillus thiooxxidans were used for dissolution of pure vanadium pentoxide and it was observed that these bacteria are able to dissolve and reduce vanadium with high efficiency. After that these bacteria were employed to leaching of vanadium from ore; however there were no results by those experiments and no vanadium dissolved in liquor although bacterial activity was visible. In the second stage, oxalic acid 0.1 M as an organic acid and three inorganic acids, namely sulfuric, hydrochloridric and nitric acids, in...
