Title: Gas Bearing Centrifugal Compressor System for Radioxenon Monitoring
Agency: DOE
Contract: DE-FG02-11ER90077
Award Amount: $149,942.00
 

Abstract:

Radioxenon monitoring systems are an important tool for detecting nuclear weapon tests around the world. These systems must be reliable and have low contamination potential because nuclear detonations can occur without warning and the opportunity to detect these events is relatively brief. Currently, there are no commercially available compressors that are suitable for these systems. Creare has proposed to develop a miniature, gas-bearing, centrifugal compressor system that will satisfy the challenging requirements associated with radioxenon monitoring systems. Commercial Application and Other Benefits: Our primary commercialization focus is to supply compressor systems for a network of radioxenon monitoring stations located around the world. Related products include compressors for scientific instruments and turbo-Brayton cryocoolers
