(D) None of these

(A) From rolled strips formed into cylinders and seam-welded
(B) By extrusion & casting into static and centrifugal molds
(C) By forging a solid round, piercing it by simultaneously rotating & forcing it over a piercer point and further reducing it by rolling gas drawing

(C) More than geometric mean value
(D) Both (b) & (c)

(A) d1/(d1 + d2)
(B) d2/(d1 + d2)
(C) (d1 + d2)/d1

7. In distillation columns, bubble caps are held in place over trays by
(A) Rivets
(B) A hold down bar
(C) Bolts
(D) Both (b) and (c)

8. Optimum economic pipe diameter for fluid flow is determined by the
(A) Viscosity of the fluid
(B) Density of the fluid
(C) Total cost considerations (pumping cost plus fixed cost of the pipe)
(D) None of these

9. The necessary wall thickness for a metallic storage vessel is a function of the
(A) Ultimate tensile strength (or yield point) of the material and operating temperature
(B) Operating pressure and welding/joint efficiency
(C) Diameter of the vessel
(D) All (a), (b) and (c)

10. The ratio for the rate of washing to the final rate of filtration in a washing type of plate and frame filter is
(A) 0.25
(B) 0.50
(C) 0.75
(D) 1.25

11. Cylindrical shell thickness of rotary drier is generally _________ mm.
(A) 2-3
(B) 18-22
(C) 6-8
(D) 12-15

12. Pick out the wrong statement pertaining to 'Horton sphere' used for the storage of liquid ammonia.
