1 - Question

In a pug mill, mixing is done by ______
b) Knives
d) Chipper

Explanation: In a pug mill mixing is done by blades of knives set in a helical pattern on a horizontal shaft in an open trough.

2 - Question

Machines with light weight, requires _____
a) Less power
b) More power
c) Depends on time
d) Can’t be specified

Explanation: Machines which a right in weight waste less energy than heavier machines, other being equal or same.

3 - Question

What does the below equation represent?

a) Standard deviation
b) Mean deviation
c) Entity relation
d) Mass distribution

Explanation: If product were perfectly mixed, every measured value of Xi would be equal to x, this deviation from measured value is given by above equation.

4 - Question

As value of S diminishes, mixing _______
a) Stops
b) Retards
c) Proceeds
d) No change

Explanation: The value of S is a relative measure of mixing valid only for a test of a specific material in a specific mixer.

5 - Question

What does the below equation represent?

a) First layer analysis
b) Final layer analysis
c) Mid mixing result
d) Mean deviation

Explanation: Before mixing begins, the material in the mixer exists in two layer, one of which contain no tracer material an done which contain only tracer, the above equation gives values for 1st analysis.

6 - Question

What does the below equation represent? a) Mixing index of pastes
b) Partial mixing index
c) Pure mixing index
d) Point mixing

Explanation: The above equation represents the mixing index for pastes and where µ is the overall friction factor of tracer in the mix.

7 - Question

In any batch mixing process, Ip is ____ at start.
a) Unity
b) Infinite
c) Zero
d) Can’t b specified

Explanation: In a batch process mixing index is unity at the start and increases as mixing proceds, and become not infinite after a time.

8 - Question

What does the following represents? a) Degree of deviation
b) Degree of mixing
c) Degree of particles
d) Speed of mixing

Explanation: The above equation represents the degree of mixing, where Sr ¬is the variance of the mixture, n is number of solid in each sample.

9 - Question

For a completely unmixed material _______
a) P (1-n)
b) P (1-P)
c) n (1-p)
d) P (1-P)

Explanation: In a completely randomized material, S2 will be greater and in a completely unmixed system P(1-P) follows.

10 - Question
