  3. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  9. Development and Evaluation of Continuous Biomass Torrefaction and Densification Process for Commercial Briquette Production

    SBC: HM3 ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 81

    Successful use of energy dense torrefied biomass to produce drop-in coal replacement fuel has proved difficult for two reasons: 1) overheating of dies during densification, and 2) inability to produce water-resistant pellets. As a result, most torrefaction companies use a binder to reduce the die friction and/or to make densified product water resistant. Also, the majority of torrefaction companie ...
