  1. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  2. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  3. Dewatering Membrane for Hazy Hydrodesulfurization Unit Effluents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many refinery product streams, particularly those from Ultra Low Hydrodesulfurisation units, are prone to haze due to water emulsions. Haze is also problematic for biodiesel production, as hazy fuel cannot be used until the haze settles or is removed, which creates costly scheduling and shipping delays. This project will develop a novel membrane process for the removal of dissolved and dispersed ...

  4. Nano-Scale High-Surface-Area Thermal and Conductive Ceramics as Effectice Support for Metal Oxide Catalysts in Alkane Selective Oxidation

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 07

    Compared with conventional processes used to produce many oxygenated chemicals, processes based on the selective catalytic oxidation of alkanes to produce oxygenates could yield enormous economic, energy, and environmental benefits. However, commercial development of such processes has been hindered, in part, because the excessive heat released by alkane oxidation causes over-oxidation (burning) ...

  5. Graphite Foam Heat Exchanger Technology for Energy Recovery

    SBC: Thermal Centric Corporation            Topic: 11

    The recovery of heat currently wasted in exhaust gases can reduce fuel consumption in almost every commercial and industrial sector. In the electricity generation sector alone, even modest improvements in energy recovery effectiveness would result in billions of dollars in savings annually. New materials made from conductive graphite have created a significant opportunity to produce heat exchang ...

  7. PipeTaz: Automated Pipe Asbestos Insulation Removal and Processing System

    SBC: AUTOMATIKA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60104 Asbestos abatement costs, associated with the DOE¿s national weapons¿ complex clean-up efforts, may amount to $300-500 million, while nationally, asbestos abatement may cost more than $100 billion over the next 25 years. Abatement methods have changed little in the past 20 years, and there is a need for a cheaper, faster, and safer abatement method. This project will design, buil ...

  8. Harsh Fluorochemical Separations

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60311 There are economic and environmental justifications for replacing conventional distillation processes with simpler membrane separations in certain applications. However, at present, there are no commercial membranes able to withstand the aggressive conditions associated with important industrial chemicals, including hydrogen fluoride, hydrogen chloride, and ozone. Prototype, chemic ...

  9. Membranes for Reverse Organic-Air Separations

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60395 Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from gasoline refueling facilities continue to be an energy, safety, and environmental issue. In such applications, it is desired to vent the air in the system and keep the VOC behind. This project will develop a reverse separation membrane (RSM) system that allows for rapid venting of air while retaining the gasoline in underground storag ...

  10. Magnetic Separation of Catalyst Fischer-Tropsch Wax

    SBC: Exportech Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60585 Fischer Tropsch (F-T) synthesis is a promising process for producing high quality, environmentally clean, diesel fuels. However, the separation of catalyst fines from the Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reactor product stream has been a major impediment to applying the technology for the conversion of hydrocarbon resources such as coal and petroleum coke to clean burning fuels. This project w ...
