  1. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: KALSI ENGINEERING, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  2. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...

  3. MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS FOR THE REMOVAL OF TOXIC AMMONIUM ION PRODUCED DURING MAMMALIAN-CELL CULTURE

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MAMMALIAN CELLS GROWN IN CULTURE EXCRETE AMMONIUM ION THAT ACCUMULATES IN QUANTITIES THAT MAY LIMIT CELL GROWTH AND REDUCE PRODUCT SYNTHESIS. THE USUAL TACTIC FOR LIMITING THE ACCUMULATION OF AMMONIA IS TO REPLACE THE "SPENT" MEDIUMWITH FRESH MEDIUM. SINCE MEDIUM REPLACEMENT INCREASES THE USE OF EXPENSIVE MEDIUM COMPONENTS, AMMONIUM ACCUMULATION LOWERS CELL AND PRODUCT YIELD ON MEDIUM AND INCREASE ...

  5. HIGH-RESOLUTION PREPARATIVE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DESIGN, EVALUATE, AND CONSTRUCT A NEW TYPE OF CHROMATOGRAPHIC SYSTEM CAPABLE OF SEPARATING GRAM QUANTITIESOF PEPTIDE HORMONE AND OTHER SUBSTANCES WITH HIGH RESOLUTION. THE HEART OF THE SYSTEM WILL BE AN EXTRUDED MULTI-CHANNEL CERAMIC BLOCK. SUCH BLOCKS ARE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE WITH SEVERAL THOUSAND PARALLEL CHANNELS OF IDENTICAL DIMENSION. THIS IS EQUIVALENT TO USING THOUSANDS OF I ...

  6. GRADIENT-COATED ALUMINUM COLUMNS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: Ionics International, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO EVALUATE AND REFINE A NOVEL GAS CHROMATOGRAPHIC COLUMN WITH THE FOLLOWING FEATURES: (1) A STATIONARY PHASE OF HIGH THERMAL STABILITY BONDED TO ALUMINUM, (2) A GRADIENT OF FILM THICKNESS OF STATIONARY PHASE TO PROVIDE BOTH HIGH SAMPLE CAPACITY AND HIGH RESOLVING POWER, AND (3) THE ABILITY TO PERFORM SIZE-EXCLUSION CHROMATOGRAPHY IN ADDITION TO PARTITION CHROMATOGRAPHY. THE COLUMNS WIL ...

  7. SYNTHESIS OF ELECTRONICALLY CONDUCTING POLYMERS BY PHOTOPOLYMERIZATION.

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PROCESS IS PRESENTED WHEREBY ELECTRONICALLY CONDUCTINGPOLYMERS ARE SYNTHESIZED USING PHOTOCHEMICAL, RATHER THAN ELECTROCHEMICAL OR CHEMICAL, MEANS. THE PROCESS INVOLVES ILLUMINATION OF AN AQUEOUS SOLUTION CONTAINING PYRROLE AND AN ELECTRON ACCEPTOR WITH ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT. ABSORPTIONOF THE LIGHT INDUCES ELECTRON TRANSFER FROM THE PYRROLE TO THE ELECTRON ACCEPTOR, THEREBY PROMOTING POLYMERIZAT ...

  8. PLATINIZED ALGAE: STABLE PHOTOCATALYTIC SYSTEMS FOR HYDROGEN PRODUCTION

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HYDROGEN IS AN IDEAL FUTURE FUEL. IN AN ERA OF DECLINING CHEAP FOSSIL FUELS, WATER IS AN ALMOST INEXHAUSTIBLE SOURCE OF HYDROGEN AND OXYGEN. UTILIZATION OF SOLAR ENERGY IN THE BIOCATALYTIC APPROACH TO WATER SPLITTING IS ATTRACTIVE ECONOMICALLY, SINCE THE LIGHT-HARVESTING MECHANISM AND THE ACTIVE REDOX CENTERS FOR WATER SPLITTING EXIST IN HIGHER PLANTS AND ALGAE. HOWEVER, SYSTEMS FOR THE BIOPRODUCT ...

  10. PIEZOPUMPS FOR MICROCHEMICAL STIMULATION OF TISSUE

    SBC: MicroFab Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    INJECTING BIOLOGICALLY ACTIVE SOLUTIONS INTO CELLS AND TISSUES IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF MOST BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, BUT THE INSTRUMENTATION AVAILABLE FOR THESE PROCEDURES IS CRUDE, CUMBERSOME, AND IMPRECISE. MICROFAB TECHNOLOGIES, INC., HAS DEVELOPED A SOLID-STATE PIEZOELECTRIC 'PUMP' THAT COULD REPLACE MECHANICAL PUMPS, IONTOPHORESIS, AND PRESSURE-INJECTION SYSTEMS IN MANY BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH APPLICA ...
