  1. Hybrid Laser Arc Welding for Thick Plate High Performance Steels

    SBC: TECHKNOWSERV CORP            Topic: 132FH1

    Welding of HPS70W is well understood when using submerged arc welding (SAW) and shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) techniques. A Welding Advisory Group (WAG) which consisted of technical advisors from the Navy, AISI, and FHWA, major filler metal manufacturers, and steel producers determined the guidelines for welding HPS70W. As a result, comprehensive guidelines and welding procedures exist for SAW ...

  2. AN INDUSTRIAL MEMBRANE SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR DISTRIBUTED USED OIL RE-REFINING

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 09c

    Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. Presently, about 9% of the collected used oil is re-refined at six facilities in US. The majority of thi ...

  3. An Innovative VOCs Incinerator

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    An innovative, non-catalytic high destruction efficiency, and low fuel consumption VOC incinerator is proposed to reduce VOCs from condensate tanks and other low heat value waste gas streams. The proposed technology will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. The proposed technology can completely eliminate undesirable VOC emissions. It uses effective heat recirculation from the hot ...

  4. Durable High Temperature Coatings For Utility Scale Gas Turbine Hot Gas Path Components

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 14c

    For advanced gas turbines where turbine inlet temperature reaches 2650F and beyond, the current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine. Thus there is a need to develop new chemistries for TBC systems, consisting of bond coat and top coat, with enhanced durability. We propose to modi ...

  7. Enhanced Dropwise Condensation for Improved Dry Cooling Efficiency

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    With the increase of energy consumption and water stress, power plant cooling, which accounts for 40% of fresh water withdrawal, has been received more and more attention. Dry cooling technology is currently the most feasible solution to reduce this water consumption. However, the cost of the dry cooling system can be more than 5 times of the typical wet cooling system. Increase the dry cooling ef ...

  10. 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 ...
