  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. Development of a multi-sample testing platform for a rapid, facile identification of Ralstonia solanacearum

    SBC: PathSensors, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Bacterial wilt is a disease that occurs in many important agricultural crops, including pepper, tobacco, tomato, and potato, and can be caused by the bacterium Ralstonia solancearum. This bacterium is classified into 5 races that are based loosely on host ranges, and into 5 biovars, which are based upon their differential ability to utilize a panel of carbohydrates. While Race 1 is endemic to the ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...

  6. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Commercialization of Bacteriophages against the Larval Shellfish Pathogens, Vibrio tubaishii and Vibrio coralliilyticus

    SBC: Intralytix Inc            Topic: 87

    The overall objective of this Phase II project is to advance the development of our phage preparation (VTP-200) for reducing V. tubiashii- and V. coralliilyticus-associated mortality of larval oysters to the point when subsequent regulatory approvals and eventual commercialization should be feasible. If the results of the studies proposed in this application support our Phase I findings that phage ...

  9. Development of a Rural Safety Mailbox

    SBC: Adian Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Current designs for rural safety mailboxes combined with a lack of safety design regulations, produce a hazardous situation for errant rural motorists. When impacted, rural mailboxes have been shown to dislodge from their posts and penetrate automobile windshields. In addition, rural residents are faced with a constant maintenance problem from winter snow plows, vandals, and vehicle impacts. A ...
