  1. Development of Zinc Coatings on Steel by Cermaclad(TM) to Replace Pickling Lines

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: B

    Every year, a significant amount of money is lost due to atmospheric attack of steel parts. A convenient and effective way for corrosion protection is coating the unalloyed steel with a thin layer of zinc (Zn) metal by galvanizing. Pickling is an essential step of this process to ensure a high-quality surface of steel for further processing. In this process, acid is used to remove scale from the s ...

  4. Preconcentration Technoloogy for Infrared Analysis of Organophosphates in Water

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: I

    Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the environment. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a novel strategy that preconcentrates org ...

  5. Real-Time In-Line Sensor for Watewater Monitoring

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: B

    A consistent clean water supply is crucial to a stable and healthy population. Contamination of water resources with biological agents or toxins is concerning as clean water becomes a limited resource in society. The National Pollutant Discharge elimination systems (NPDES) permitting program requires permits for industrial and municipal water treatment facilities that discharge directly to surfa ...
