Engineering chemistry 2 syllabus
UNIT I WATER TECHNOLOGY
Introduction to boiler feed water-requirements-formation of deposits in steam boilers and heat exchangers- disadvantages (wastage of fuels, decrease in efficiency, boiler explosion) prevention of scale formation -softening of hard water -external treatment zeolite and demineralization – internal treatment- boiler compounds (phosphate, calgon, carbonate, colloidal) – caustic embrittlement-boiler corrosion-priming and foaming- desalination of brackish water –reverse osmosis.
UNIT II ELECTROCHEMISTRY AND CORROSION
Electrochemical cell – redox reaction, electrode potential- origin of electrode potential- oxidation potential- reduction potential, measurement and applications – electrochemical series and its significance – Nernst equation (derivation and problems). Corrosion- causes- factors- types-chemical, electrochemical corrosion (galvanic, differential aeration), corrosion control – material selection and design aspects – electrochemical protection – sacrificial anode method and impressed current cathodic method. Paints- constituents and function. Electroplating of Copper and electroless plating of nickel.
