  1. A Computational Tool for Design and Operation of Coolers/Dryers for Feed Pellets

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

    Cooling and drying of feed pellets are the most important operations in the feed manufacturing industry. These operations are carried out simultaneously, in a single machine, by passing ambient air through a moving bed of pellets. However, simultaneous control of both these processes is very difficult. Overdrying of pellets is a common problem that costs several million dollars to feed processi ...

  3. A Scalable Environmental Controller with Integrated Solar Thermal Storage and Extraction for Field Protected Agriculture

    SBC: Scenic Valley Farm LLC            Topic: 812

    High Tunnels (commonly called poly tunnels or hoop houses) are a type of field protected agriculture. They are essentially an intermediary between the full environmental risk-taking of outdoor production, and the controlled conditions, and relatively high energy use, of a conventional greenhouse. There are hundreds of thousands of acres in cultivation under high tunnels across the world. Domestica ...
