  1. 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 ...

  2. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  3. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...

  4. 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, ...

  6. WIRELESS HEADSET

    SBC: Apeiron            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF WIRELESS HEADSET SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM IS AN APPLICATION OF DIGITAL AUDIO ENCODING, PACKET SWITCHING, LOCAL AREA NETWORKING, AND TIME/ADDRESS MULTIPLEXING TECHNIQUES TO FORM A NETWORK OF PERSONAL ACOUSTIC HEADSETS TO BE WORN BY A NUMBER OF PERSONNEL. THIS INNOVATION ALLOWS THE USE OF MANY HEADSETS ON THE SAME CARRIER FREQUENCY TO OPERATE FROM A SINGLE BASE UN ...

  7. Inspection of Ceramic Ball Bearings by Differential-Phase Acoustic Microscopy

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is to apply differential phase acoustic microscopy to NDE inspection of ceramic Sn3N4 ball bearings. Differential phase acoustic microscopy is more sensitive than standard acoustic microscopy, and can provide the location and size of defects, which is a specific goal of the subtopic. The specific goal of this research is to assess the feasibility of differential phase acous ...

  10. ADAPTIVE SCHEMES FOR COMPLEX SUBSONIC 3D-FLOW PROBLEMS IN ARBITRARY DOMAINS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DEVOTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A UNIQUE COLLECTION OF ALGORITHMS DESIGNED TO RESOLVE SOME OF THE MOST DIFFICULT PROBLEMS OF MODERN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS: (1) THE ANALYSIS OF COMPLEX INCOMPRESSIBLE FLOWS IN ARBITRARY THREE-DIMENSIONAL DOMAINS; (2) THE ANALYSIS OF COMPLEX FLOW-INTERACTION PHENOMENA ASSOCIATED WITH THE MOTION OF ONE OR MORE RIGID BODIES MOVING RELATIVE TO ONE AN ...
