Raman Scattering Sensor for Control of the Acid Alkylation Acid Process in Gasoline Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Rory H. Uibel, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
78230S In the production of gasoline, refineries currently monitor acid strength via titration techniques once or twice per shift, which results in running higher-than-optimal acid concentrations to ensure that the process proceeds uninterrupted. This project will develop a reliable in situ method… More

Aging and Surveillance Technology for Solid Rocket Motors

Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Rory Uibel, Analytical Chemist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
A need exists for a reliable, non-destructive, in-situ method to monitor the chemistry of solid rocket motor propellant to determine its health and stability during the service life of the motor. Ideally, the sensor would be able to monitor the chemical components of the motor and not affect the… More

Raman Scattering Sensor for On-Line Monitoring of Amines and Acid Gases

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Rory Uibel, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The removal of sulfur and CO2 from hydrocarbon streams and power plant effluents is a major problem. Because the sulfur is normally in the form of H2S, this acid gas is scrubbed using aqueous amine solutions that are difficult to control with conventional technology. CO2 scrubbing may soon be… More
