  1. A CLEAN HELIUM COMPRESSOR/EXPANDER FOR LONG LIFE CRYOGENIC SERVICE

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    CRYOGENIC HELIUM REFRIGERATORS AND LIQUIFIERS CONVENTIONALLYEMPLOY OIL LUBRICATED POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT COMPRESSORS AT THE WARM END AND FREQUENTLY USE PISTON TYPE EXPANSION ENGINES AT THE COLD END. THESE SYSTEMS REQUIRE EXTENSIVE AND VIGILANT MAINTENANCE TO CONTROL CONTAMINATION FROM LUBRICATING OIL AND ITS VOLATILE COMPONENTS MIGRATING TO THE COLD END. HENCE THE NEED FOR LOW MAINTENANCE COMPRESSO ...

  2. Advanced ICRF Antennas for Fusion Energy Devices

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 67b

    Abstract Ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) power is anticipated to be a primary auxiliary heating source in next step tokamak experiments like ITER. From a technological perspective, electrical breakdown is a significant challenge for ICRF utilization in present experiments and will become more challenging for future devices like ITER and other reactors. An ICRF system utilizes an antenna to ...

  3. ALL-METAL, DEMOUNTABLE CRYOGENIC SEAL

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    IN MOST CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS, THE PIPING JOINTS IN COLD REGIONSOF THE SYSTEM ARE MADE BY WELDING OR SOLDERING. THIS IS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE EXISTING DESIGNS OF CRYOGENIC PIPE SEALS CANNOT BE RELIED ON NOT TO LEAK. ANY SUCH LEAKS INTO THE COLD BOX REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE INSULATION, THEREBY REDUCING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE REFRIGERATOR. WELDEDJOINTS MAKE REPLACEMENT OF COMPONENTS DIFFICULT AND HAVE ...

  4. AN INTERNAL-EXTERNAL BRONZE PROCESS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF LARGE FILEMENT NB3SN

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN, FOR SOME YEARS, A NATIONAL NEED FOR A HIGHER QUALITY, HIGHER JC NB3SN THAN THAT DEVELOPED OVER 10 YEARS AGO AND USED IN THE LARGE VOLUME U.S. APPLICATIONS, I.E. WESTINGHOUSE LCP, HFTF, AND MIT 12T. IN RECENT MONTHS,BRONZE PROCESSED MATERIAL WITH PROPERTIES AT LEAST EQUAL, IFNOT SUPERIOR TO THOSE OF THE OTHER APPROACHES, HAS BEEN REPORTED FROM JAPAN; HOWEVER, THIS WAS IN VERY FINE F ...

  5. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

  6. Chemical Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer for Particle and Gas-Phase Organic Speciation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass. Or ...

  7. Components for Heating and Fueling of Fusion Plasmas

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 67b

    Next generation fusion facilities will require many megawatts of RF power from dozens of gyrotrons. Conventional DC power systems, built from WWII era components, have provided the typical approach to powering high-power RF vacuum devices for the last 50 years. Typically, they suffer from reliability and availability problems, and are often only 50 70% efficient. Scaling these conventional RF pow ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMPROVED COMPOSITE SUPERCONDUCTOR WITH ELECTRICALLY UNCOUPLED FINE NBTI FILAMENTS AND A HIGH CURRENT DENSITY

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN RECENT MONTHS, BY THE USE OF DIFFUSION BARRIERS, HIGH HOMOGENEITY RAW MATERIAL AND IMPROVED HEAT TREATMENTS, HIGH JC FINE FILAMENT COMPOSITE SUPERCONDUCTORS HAVE BEEN PRODUCED COMMERCIALLY FOR USE PRIMARILY IN SUPERCONDUCTING SUPLEX COLLIDER (SSC) DIPOLES AND QUADRUPOLES. IN THESE IMPROVED MATERIALS, HOWEVER, LIMITATIONS TO THE EFFECTIVE FILAMENT SIZE AND OBSTACLES TO THE FURTHER INCREASE OF JC ...

  9. Development of High Current 2G High Temperature Superconductor Cabling Technology

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 66c

    Future magnets for Fusion Energy Systems require superconducting cables with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, 20 Kelvin operation, low AC losses and lower cost. A new method of fabricating a high current cable with 2G HTS tapes has been developed that will improve the engineering current density achievable. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Fut ...

  10. DOSIMETRY AND MONITORING OF AROMATIC AMINES

    SBC: Perfect View Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UP TO 35,000 WORKERS OF THE U.S. CHEMICAL INDUSTRY AND MORE THAN 270,000 WORKERS IN THE PETROLEUM AND COAL-RELATED INDUSTRIES MAY BE EXPOSED DAILY TO CARCINOGENIC AND MUTANOGENIC COMPOUNDS FROM THE AROMATIC AMINE GROUP. COAL GAS, INC. DEVELOPED A VERY SIMPLE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY APPROACH TO MONITORING THE EXPOSURE OF PERSONNEL TO TRACE LEVELS OF POLLUTANTS AND IS PROPOSING TO CONDUCT R & D WHICH WILL E ...
