  1. Large Area PMT

    SBC: Burle Industries, Inc.            Topic: 43

    72705-The next generation of nucleon-decay and neutrino experiments will require high sensitivity photo detectors with a total active area of at least 10,000 m2. Existing photomultiplier tubes would impose severe limitations on the size and sensitivity of these experiments, due to their cost and manufacturing leadtime. This project will develop a large area, low-cost photomultiplier tube for the ...

  2. Proof-of-Concept Testing of a Gold Recovery Process Using Magnetic Activated Carbon

    SBC: EnvirosafeTechnologies            Topic: 25

    72321-The processing rate in gold extraction applications is limited by current production methods. Pulverized activated carbon could be used to improve reaction kinetics, reduce energy consumption, and minimize the waste generated per unit of gold produced; however, this carbon cannot be separated from the ore. This project will develop technology for rendering the powdered carbon magnetic so t ...

  3. Demonstration of a Phosphate Recovery Circuit for Existing Waste Streams

    SBC: EnvirosafeTechnologies            Topic: 25

    72325-Phosphate beneficiation plants currently pump hundreds of thousands of gallons of fine refuse into waste impoundments every minute. This refuse contains not only fine phosphate, considered unrecoverable by current industrial practice, but also coarse phosphate that has been misplaced due to sizing inefficiencies. Unfortunately, this lost phosphate is a large portion of the total valuable m ...

  4. Metal Oxide Catalyst for Methyl Ethyl Ketone Production via One-Step Catalytic Oxidation of n-Butane

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 19

    72314-Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is a commodity chemical in high demand with an annual production of over 675 million pounds in the U.S. alone. Currently, 87% of the MEK is produced via the three-step sec-butyl alcohol route, which starts with the expensive 1-butene, consumes large amounts of energy, and generates much corrosive and toxic waste. To address the cost, energy, and environmental issu ...

  5. Novel Magnetometer for High Energy Physics, Fusion, and Electric Utility Applications

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: 46

    72900-A novel magnetometer is needed for the measurement of various types of magnet systems and electric utility equipment including dipoles, quadrupoles, fusion magnets, electrical buss bars, motor, generators, and fault current limiters. This project will develop a novel magnetometer that has the simplicity, sensitivity, and versatility to address a wide variety of measurement configurations fo ...

  6. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: WavesinSolids LLC            Topic: N/A

    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 demonstrable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation.

  7. A THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR A THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC/GENERALPURPOSE HEAT SOURCE POWER SUPPLY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT ENERGY CONVERSION EMPLOYING GALLIUM-ANTIMONY THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC (TPV) CELLS CAN ACHIEVE CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER (W/KG) ABOUT TWICE AS HIGH AS THE ACHIEVABLE EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER FOR THERMOELECTRIC CONVERSION. ON THE OTHER HAND, THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS MUST OPERATE BELOW 350 K, VERSUS 550 K FOR THERMOELECTRIC CELLS. THE REDUCED OPERATING TEMPERATURE INCREASES T ...

  8. A POROUS METAL HEAT EXCHANGER TO COOL A MICROWAVE CAVITY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE POWER OUTPUT OF GYROTRONS USED IN THE FUSION PROGRAM IS LIMITED BY THE COOLING OF THE MICROWAVE CAVITY. EXISTING DESIGNS CAN EXTRACT A HEAT FLUX OF 1 TO 3 KW/CM(2). THE RUSSIANS HAVE REPORTED A FLUX OF 4 TO 5 KW/CM(2) USING POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER. POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER USES A THIN POROUS LAYER OF METAL POWDER UNDER A FACESHEET, WHICH IS BONDED TO A COOLANT SUPPLY/REMOVAL PLATE. THE LA ...

  9. A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER FOR MEASURING THE PROPERTIES OF COAL AND COAL SLURRIES

    SBC: Viscoustech Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROCESSES AND EQUIPMENT FOR HANDLING SOLIDS AND SLURRIES ARE QUITE INEFFICIENT WHEN COMPARED WITH EQUIPMENT THAT HANDLES LIQUIDS AND GASES. THIS IS LARGELY BECAUSE DESIGNERS DO NOT CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIOR OF GRANULAR SOLIDS AND SLURRIES SUCH AS COAL-WATER SLURRIES. IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT, A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF GRANULAR SOLIDS S ...
