  1. SAFE AND ECONOMICAL CHLORINE DIOXIDE GENERATION

    SBC: Eltech Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    SAFE, COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES TO CHLORINE TREATMENT OF DRINKING WATER FOR DISTRIBUTION AND DISINFECTION HAVE BEEN SOUGHT FOR SOME TIME. CHLORINE DIOXIDE IS A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO CHLORINE FOR THE TREATMENT OF EVEN POOR QUALITY WATER SUPPLIES AND THE REDUCTION OF POTENTIAL CANCER CAUSING CHLORINATED ORGANICS. ITS WIDESPREAD USE HAS BEEN INHIBITED BY THE COSTS AND/OR COMPLEXITY OF ITS PRODUCTIO ...

  2. DOUBLE HEAT EXCHANGES SYSTEM FOR MINIMIZING ENERGY AND POLLUTION CONTROL COSTS IN INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Energy Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES REQUIRING THAT MATERIAL BE HEATED AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY COOLED. IF MOST OF THIS HEAT IS RECOVERED AND RECYCLED TO THE OVEN, THE NET POWER INPUT TO THE OVEN COULD BE SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED. THE KEY TO ACCOMPLISHING THIS IS AN INCREASE OF THE HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT BETWEEN GAS AND MATERIAL SO THAT THE HEAT EXCHANGERS ARE RESASONABLY COMPACT. SIMPLE EXPERIMEN ...

  3. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  4. VERY HIGH RESOLUTION PSEUDO WELL LOGS OF VELOCITIES, PERCENTANISOTROPY, AND DENSITY FROM SEISMIC DATA

    SBC: Applied Genetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TRAVEL TIMES OF COHERENT EVENTS IN SEISMIC SURVEYS OF THE CRUST PRINCIPALLY GIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE LOW SPATIALFREQUENCY VELOCITY FIELD; DETAILS OF THE SEISMIC SIGNATURES OF BACKSCATTERED EVENTS PRINCIPALLY GIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE HIGH SPATIAL FREQUENCY OF THE VELOCITY AND DENSITY FIELDS (WHICH CAN BE REPRESENTED BY PSEUDO WELL LOGS). TRAVEL TIME INVERSION IS BEGINNING TO FIND PRACTICAL ...

  5. OPTIMIZED PLASTIC SCINTILLATING OPTICAL FIBERS WITH IMPROVEDRADIATION RESISTANCE FOR USE AT THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER

    SBC: Bicron Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASTIC SCINTILLATING OPTICAL FIBERS (PSF) WILL PLAY A MAJORROLE AS RADIATION DETECTORS IN THE GIANT RESEARCH DEVICES ENVISIONED FOR THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC) AND FOR OTHER SIMILAR DEVICES PLANNED ABROAD. THIS PROJECT IS CONCERNED WITH ESTABLISHING A DOMESTIC COMMERCIAL SOURCE OF THIS NEW GENERATION DETECTION MEDIUM NEEDED FOR THE ADVANCEDPARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH TO BE CONDUCTED AT ...

  6. A GIANT MAGNETOCALORIC EFFECT FOR CRYOGENIC REFRIGERATION

    SBC: CERAMPHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN ENORMOUS MAGNETOCALORIC EFFECT HAS BEEN DISCOVERED IN FINE-GRAIN SPINEL POWDERS AT LIQUID HELIUM TEMPERATURES. FOR EXAMPLE, AN ADIABATIC-DEMAGNETIZATION TEMPERATURE DROP FROM 8.5 TO 5.0 K HAS BEEN MEASURED WITH A MAGNETIC FIELD OFONLY 3.8 GAUSS; THESE EFFECTS HAVE BEEN DUPLICATED ON FOUR POWDER SAMPLES AND APPEAR TO BE REVERSIBLE. TWO DIFFERENT SPINELS ARE INVOLVED. AN OPPORTUNITY EXISTS FOR PR ...

  7. PHOTOELECTROLYSIS OF LIQUID H2S

    SBC: Cortest Laboratories Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL IDENTIFY SEMICONDUCTOR PHOTOANODES AND PHOTOCATHODES THAT OPTIMIZE PHOTO-ELECTROLYSIS OF LIQUID H2S. THE QUANTUM (PHOTOVOLTAIC) EFFICIENCY OF N- AND P-TYPE ELECTRODES WILL BE MEASURED IN A HIGH PRESSURE PHOTOELECTROCHEMICAL CELL. THE GOAL WILL BE TO INCREASE THE YIELD OF HYDROGEN AND SULFUR OVER THAT RECENTLY OBTAINED IN WORK USING P-SI AND N-CDS. PHASE I WILL BE DIRECTED AT IDENTI ...

  10. CRYOGENIC RADIO FREQUENCY WINDOW DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    RADIO FREQUENCY VACUUM WINDOWS COOLED WITH LIQUID HELIUM WILL BE DEVELOPED IN THIS PROJECT. SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WILL BE USED FOR THE DIELECTRIC BARRIER MATERIAL. A COMPRESSIVE SEAL TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED TO FORM THE VACUUM JOINT BETWEEN THE SAPPHIRE AND CONDUCTORS THAT MAKE UP THE WINDOW ASSEMBLY. THIS TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY FOR ROOM TEMPERATURE VACUUM SEALS. IN PHASE I THE SEAL ...
