  1. Low-Cost Machining Without Cutting Fluids

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cutting fluids have been used in machining processes for many years to decrease the temperature during machining by spraying the coolant into the machining zone, directly on the cutting tool and the part. This has the effect of decreasing the tool temperature, which increases tool life and improves the part quality. These benefits come with significant drawbacks. Cutting fluids are environmenta ...

  3. Development of a DYNAJET Cavitation System for High-Rate Disinfection of Combined Sewer Overflow

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: N/A

    Dynaflow, Inc., proposes the development of a novel hydrodynamic cavitation process for high-rate disinfection of combined sewer overflows (CSOs) that would be economical and readily applicable to both large- and small-scale systems. This process would not produce potentially hazardous by-products (as does chlorination), and would operate in the presence of suspended solids. Ultrasonically induc ...

  5. Advanced Concrete Materials for Water and Wastewater Pipeline Repair and Construction

    SBC: CeraTech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CeraTech, Inc., proposes the development of novel (patent pending) phosphate-based concrete for fresh water and wastewater pipeline. The materials being investigated utilize a very high percentage of residual materials (coal ash, municipal solid waste ash, bio-solids ash, etc., up to 80 wt%). The concrete exhibits zero shrinkage as well as extremely high bondability to both concrete and reinforc ...

  6. Improving the Recyclability of Computer Scrap and Other E-Waste

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide and has reached crisis proportions. The crisis relates not only to quantity, but also to the toxic nature of e-waste. Vast amounts of toxic materials such as lead, beryllium, mercury, cadmium, and brominated flame retardants are contained within the growing mountains of e-waste around the world. The United St ...
