Principal Investigator: Alexander G. Sappok
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of using vibrations to dislodge and remove contaminants accumulated on ceramic filters. Filter Sensing Technologies (FST) has targeted diesel particulate filters (DPF) as a promising application, since… More

SBIR Phase I: Portable, Low-Cost, and Robust Black Carbon Measurement Instrument using Radio Frequency Sensing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alexander G. Sappok
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of using radio-frequencies to provide a real-time measurement of black carbon emissions. There is a growing demand for black carbon measurement systems in response to increasingly stringent emissions… More

SBIR Phase II: Vibration-Based Cleaning for Ash Removal from Diesel Particulate Filters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alexander G. Sappok
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop a vibration-based cleaning system, the AccelaCleanTM, to dislodge and remove contaminants accumulated on ceramic filters. The feasibility of the concept was demonstrated in Phase I, and diesel particulate filters (DPF) are… More

SBIR Phase II: Portable, Low-Cost, and Robust Black Carbon Measurement Instrument using Radio Frequency Sensing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alexander G. Sappok
Award Amount: $489,899.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a novel radio-frequency (RF) sensing method to provide a real-time measurement of black carbon emissions. The feasibility of this concept was demonstrated in Phase I, and engine emissions measurements are targeted in… More
