  2. The use of acousto-ultrasonics to determine the quality of the brazing and grinding of carbide tipped cutting tools

    SBC: S.T.S., INC.            Topic: 81

    Thin saws, although more difficult to manufacture and use, conserve valuable wood fiber resources and make the users of these thin saws more competitive globally. As such, thinner sawblades are growing in popularity in spite of the "challenges" associated with their manufacture and use. Three of those challengers revolve around brazing tips into thinner sawblades1) Because the steel is thinner, le ...

  3. Biological feedback control of LED grow lights

    SBC: PhytoSynthetix            Topic: 813

    In controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems (greenhouses and indoor plant production facilities) light is the most energy consuming, and yet the least controlled, input factor for plant growth. Plants can dissipate up to 80% of the absorbed light energy as heat through physiological protective mechanisms (non photochemical quenching) and this light cannot be used for plant growth. Light e ...

  6. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Crude Sulfated Turpentine (CST) is a by-product of the Kraft wood pulping process, and its derivatives (e.g., terpenes such as alpha pinene) are used as fragrances in commercial products ranging from cosmetics to detergents. They can also be, and are, catalytically transformed into valuable chemicals by hydrogenation, oxidation and isomerization reactions. However, turpentine and its derivatives c ...

  7. Rural-Health-Mate: A Tele-Monitoring System That Improves Rural Senior's Healthcare Via Monitoring, Communication & Stakeholder Interaction

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: 86

    The significant gap in the healthcare services available to rural seniors is well supported by prior research. Frequently, rural seniors must travel long distances regardless of weather conditions to healthcare facilities. The senior's family members often worry about their loved ones and may not get accurate information regarding their health and behaviors, and falls, missed meds, and nutriti ...
