Award List:

SUBMICRON SIZE DROPLETS OF WATER CHARGED EITHER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $23,100.00
Abstract:
The army has a need to place a specific amount of electrical charge on powder particles used to generate battlefield smoke. conventional methods of doing this task are each narrowly limited to apply charge of a particular polarity to particles having particular physical chemical compositions. the… More

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF BUILDING TWO COMPONENT THERMOVOLTAIC CELLS AND BATTERIES.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Dr meredith c gourdine
Award Amount: $47,300.00
Abstract:
The objective of this phase i research is to investigate the feasibility of building two component thermovoltaic cells and batteries. such thin-film solid-state cells can be charged by an external power supply, then, discharge through an external resistance with high specific power and specific… More

DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Meredith C Gourdine
Award Amount: $37,666.00
Abstract:
There are numerous industrial processes requiring that material be heated and then subsequently cooled. if most of this heat is recovered and recycled to the oven, the net power input to the oven could be substantially reduced. the key to accomplishing this is an increase of the heat transfer… More

MULTI-VORTEX SYSTEM FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL GAS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Meredith C Gourdine , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,500.00
Abstract:
More cost effective systems are needed for recovering volatile organic contaminants (vocs) from industrial exhaustgas. the proposed approach is to cool the gas well below the dew point of the vocs. normally, ice and dirt form on the condensing surface, reducing the heat transfer rate, requiring… More

RESEARCH ON MATERIALS AND METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION FOR THERMOVOLTAIC CELLS AND BATTERIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $48,950.00
Abstract:
Nasa needs reliable, safe, high-performance batteries to solve some demanding tasks on space station missions planned for the 1990s. thermovoltaic cells and batteries offer possibilities beyond those of commercially available batteries and of other batteries now under development, which not only… More

MULTIVORTEX COLLECTOR OF EXPLOSIVE AGENTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Dr Meredith C Gourdine , President
Award Amount: $74,876.00
Abstract:
The objective is a compact, reliable and inexpensive method for sampling large volumes of air rapidly to determine the concentration of airborne explosives. the approach involves the use of a multivortex precipitator capable of efficiently removing fine particulates and large molercules from the air… More

ELECTROCHEMICAL STRIPPING OF COATINGS FROM ALUMINUM ALLOYS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: M. C. Gourdine, Ph.d.
Award Amount: $98,760.00
Abstract:
Until recently, polymer coatings were stripped from aluminum alloys using volatile organic compoound solvents. This is being phased out for environmental reasons. Mechanical techniques like PMB also have severe environmental impact. New methods need to be explored. The approach in this proposal… More

Electrogasdynamic (EGD) and Electric Field Suppression of Flame Fronts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Meredith Gourdine
Award Amount: $99,906.00
Abstract:
The application of electric fields in the presence of flame fronts has demonstrated a definite effect upon the progression of the flame front. The application of electrogasdynamic (EGD) technology toward influencing combustion processes shall be examined in addition to electromagnetic… More

A New Advanced System for Gas Turbine Combustors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr. Meredith C. Gourdine
Award Amount: $99,832.00
Abstract:
Cooling of the liner wall in gas turbine combustors has become increasingly difficult and problematic as engine pressure ratios are constantly increased. Existing cooling techniques have limitations in perfomance. At Energy Innovations, Inc., we have developed a new technology that has potential… More
