Award List:

Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Arun Vohra, Consulting Engineer – (240) 731-8846
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
A novel third rail insulator cleaner and novel cleaning tool - the Spin Wedge, will be developed. The novel cleaner is a skate that rides directly on the third rail and is attached to a service vehicle. Four Spin Wedges, attached to the skate, direct a very rapid series of high pressure water jets… More

Automated High Speed, Low Water Consumption Insulator Cleaner

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Arun Vohra, President
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
  This Phase II proposal develops a novel third rail insulator cleaner called the Vohrtex based.on the successfully completed Phase I project that developed the low water consumption, quick cleaning tool, the “Spin Wedge.”  The Vohrtex slides on the third rail and is attached… More

Very High Speed Third Rail Insulator Cleaning

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Arun Vohra, President – (301) 365-4725
Award Amount: $235,000.00
Abstract:
This Phase IIB proposal will accelerate the commercialization of the Phase II project that developed the Vohrtex insulator cleaner. The Phase II cleaner used self-spinning nozzles which require oversized offset jets to provide sufficient reaction force to make the nozzle spin. The oversized jets… More
