BURGLAR ALARM UNIT

INTRODUCTIONAs the world is developing the need for electronics in human endeavor is now taking a larger scope. With the invention of certain electronics gadgets in our societies today, certain activities become easily handled for example; in communication where the telephone plays a part.  In places where safety are needed an alarm system will be of much important.The application of electronics in this modern age is simply inexhaustible and this group form more interest in the alarm sys...

The Effect Of Temperature On Hydrolysis Of Cellulose (Saw-Dust)

ABSTRACTThe effect of concentration of hydrochloric acid on hydrolysis of cellulose (saw-dust) to glucose was studied on this research project and the steps obtained to achieve this project involved treatment of saw-dust (cellulose) with different concentrations of the acid at constant temperature of 80° (350k) for 30mins. This was followed by glucose analysis, some analysis or experiments were done on acid hydrolysis in order to study the effect of (HCL) acid on the hydrolysis of cellulose ...

PRODUCTION OF CASSAVA OF STARCH FROM CASSAVA

ABSTRACTThe fresh cassava were sources from Idodo in Nkanu Local Government of Enugu state. The weight of the cassava tuber were taken to be 31.50kg. After peeling and washing, it was divided into two equal parts which was 21.13kg for production of sample A and sample B respectively (edible and textile starch) which weighed 13.1kg.During this process, the temperature were obtained at 700c (617.4R). And the other properties of the cassava samples were carried out, such as moisture content of t...

The Production Of Yam Flour

ABSTRACTThe project dealt on the production of yam flour from yam chips. The yams were peeled and washed, 100grams samples coded sample A to G were subjected to two different drying conditions. Some were dried using the sun drying method while the others were dried through oven drying method kept at constant temperature of 500C, sodium bi-carbonate was added to some of the samples, all these were done to obtain a flour with the best colour and texture quality. From the results obtained, it wa...

CONSTRUCTION OF AN INTRUDER ALARM SYSTEM

ABSTRACT The intruder alarm system was designed and build in order to let the industrial and commercial company know how important alarm system is all about. These can be of Good help if the intruder will look through this project and support for the development of this project as to let the Federal Government know that the young engineering of today can produce (construct) things that will help the economic and growth in developing this country is technology The intruder alarm system ...

THE DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ELECTRONICS SEQUENTIAL SIGN PATTER DISPLAY

ABSTRACT This design implementation of this electronic sequential sign post display employs the use of some specialized components. This section of the project introduces the reader to the different section of the project and the components that makes them up. Emphasis are laid on describing the behaviour and operational system of the components as related to the project modeling, analysis, design and implementation of an ELECTRONIC SIGN POST, which is made up of a power supply, a shift r...

Digitization of Television Broadcasting in Nigeria Review

ABSTRACTInformation and Communication Technology (ICT) has opened up new and robust ways of sending and receiving information at global level. Any type of information including voice and video is sent to the diverse publics, who equally have variety of choices. Thus, the development of any nation is tied to efficient information dissemination. In Nigeria, television broadcasting started in 1959 with the establishment of the Western Nigeria Television (WNTV) by the opposition leader, Chief Oba...

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF COMPUTER BASED LOTTERY PROCESSING SYSTEM

ABSTRACTDescription of a system and peripherals or devices in a computer system in which the operating of such devices is under control of the central processing unit is termed on-line.  Because of the efficiency and fast services, this project is equally aimed at creating a computer based lottery which allows entire to be sold over the phone, ATM, POS Machine, E-mail or via kiosks in which participants are invited to choose at least one unique number from a defined range of numbers. &nb...

THE DESIGN AND COSNTRUCTION OF 1000KWA STABILIZER A PROJECT PRESENTED TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING

ABSTRACT Despite all attempt of the federal government to have not only an uninterrupted power supply for all cities in Nigeria, but a voltage that is inconformity with the recommended 220/230v for domestic consumption for example.  The NEPA Plc is facing some difficulties in generating, transmitting and distributing the required voltage stabilizer, which could be connected, to the main and then the load is in turn connected to it. This automatic, AC voltage stabilizer has two major s...

ALTERNATIVE RAW MATERIAL SOURES FOR CEMENT PRODUCTION

ABSTRACTIt is generally known that cement id produced from limestone, mar/clay and gypsum by the following three basic process- wet semi- wet aid dry process.The cost of exploiting the limestone: the major raw material constitute about 50% of the production cost which results in the high cost of cement.  It therefore becomes imperative to bring down the cost of cement by investigating into alternative source of raw material for cement production and hence this project.From literature, ri...

PRODUCTION OF PLANT MIRROR USING LOCAL RAW MATERIAL

ABSTRACTThis project “production of plane mirror using local raw material” is meant to study the possibility of producing plane mirror using sand rich in silica as its major local raw material.Plane mirror is produced by casting one side of a sheet glass.  Presently in Nigeria, sheet glass is not used easily produce and as such, the local raw material used in the in the production of plane mirror in this product backing paint.  The facilities for the production include spraying ...

THE DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF A PRESSURIZED KEROSENE OVEN (60 X 90)

ABSTRACTThis project has been design and fabricated with special economical needs for small scale baking industries, wholesalers and distributors who impact this type of baking even from outside the country to su0pply the customers. And in view of the scarcity and high cost of gas and electricity in the country and also smoke release when using firewood for drying and preserving fresh fish by some matters at home, restaurant fast food shop etc, the pressurized kerosene oven have been fabricat...

CONSTRUCTION OF A SIMPLE PAINT MIXER

ABSTRACTA paint mixer is defined as a pattern constructed for the production (mixing) of paint manually.  The method of fabrication of the paint mixer involved a preliminary computation of the dimensions of the standard mixer in relation to the dimension of the reacting vessel in which they will be used in marking out, cutting out to sizes, rolling, folding, welding, body-filling and painting.  The first step taken in the fabrication of this project work was the selection of materia...

EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTS OF FLOODING ON FOUR VARIETIES OF RICE (A CASE STUDY OF EZZA NORTH, ABAKALIKI, EBONYI STATE)

ABSTRACTFlooding has been described as one of the most important environmental factors determining the distribution of salt maize plants. We studied the impact of five water levels on the germination and establishment of the invasive cord grass spartina denifora. Plant house experiment was carried out to determine the effects of time and depth of flooding o the survival and growth of rice. Data showed that time and depth of flood had significant effects on the survival and growth of rice.&nbs...

PRODUCTION OF LOQUID AND VAPOURIZED PERFUME

ABSTRACTThis research project was carried out principally for the production of liquid and vapourized perfumes from local raw materials.  The local raw material were subjected to various processing conditions in order to obtain purified perfume.  The methods generally used in this work include expression steam distillation and solvent extraction.During the production of vapourized and liquid perfume the modern solvent for blending and holding perfume materials is highly refined etha...
