  1. HIGH EFFICIENCY TAR SAND OIL RECOVERY

    SBC: Energy Recovery Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE COUNTER CURRENT SOLID STREAMS HEAT TRANSFER (CCSSHT) RETORT IS A NEW PROCESS FOR EFFICIENT OIL RECOVERY FROM OUR PLENTIFUL TAR SANDS AND OIL SHALE RESERVES. AS A HEAT RECOVERY SOIL INCINERATOR, IT HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF REDUCED FUEL DEMAND AND LOW COMBUSTION GAS PRODUCT (REDUCING AIR POLLUTION CONTROL NEEDS FOR THE INCINERATOR). THE CCSSHT UNIT IS A SINGLE VESSEL ROTATING KILN THAT (1) PREHEATS ...

  2. NEW VME-FASTBUS INTERFACING ALTERNATIVES

    SBC: Kineticsystems Corp            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THE RAPIDLY INCREASING DEMANDS ON DATA ACQUISITION AND COMPUTER PROCESSING SYSTEMS IN MOST DOE-FUNDED RESEARCH TODAY, FASTBUS HAS BECOME A VITAL PRESENCE IN HIGH-ENERGY PHYSICS PROJECTS WORLDWIDE. SIMILARLY, BECAUSE OF ITS BROAD FLEXIBILITY AND INTERNATIONAL CHARACTER, VMEBUS IS EMERGING AS A POPULAR HOST AND POST-PROCESSING ENVIRONMENT. ALTHOUGH SOME SYSTEMSHAVE BEEN DESIGNED THAT ALLO ...

  3. LARGE, THIN, FLAT, FULL-COLOR DISPLAYS FOR GRAPHICS DISPLAY UNITS

    SBC: Lucitron Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR IMPROVED DISPLAYS TO DEAL WITH MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DATA FROM COMPLEX EXPERIMENTS. EVEN WITH A GREAT DEAL OF COMPUTER MANIPULATION, THE RESULTS MUSTBE PRESENTED TO THE EXPERIMENTER IN COMPREHENSIBLE FORM. THIS IS BEST DONE USING HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR GRAPHICS. THEDISPLAY SHOULD BE LARGE ENOUGH SO THAT A GROUP OF EXPERIMENTERS CAN WORK WITH IT AND INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER, A ...

  4. MULTIPHOTON PROCESSES PROMOTED BY CONCENTRATED SOLAR ENERGY

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED SOLAR COLLECTOR TECHNOLOGY CAN PROVIDE LIGHT INTENSITIES SEVERAL THOUSAND TIMES THAT OF INCOMING SUNLIGHT. ACHIEVEMENT OF SUCH INTENSITIES SUGGESTS A NOVEL OPPORTUNITY: PROMOTION OF MULTIPHOTON CHEMICAL PROCESSES BY SOLAR SOURCES. AT VERY HIGH LIGHT INTENSITIES, MORE THANONE QUANTUM OF RADIATION CAN BE ABSORBED BY A SINGLE MOLECULE. THE RESULTANT MULTIPHOTON ABSORPTION CAN LEAD TO NEW PHO ...

  7. CRYOGENIC RADIO FREQUENCY WINDOW DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    RADIO FREQUENCY VACUUM WINDOWS COOLED WITH LIQUID HELIUM WILL BE DEVELOPED IN THIS PROJECT. SINGLE CRYSTAL SAPPHIRE WILL BE USED FOR THE DIELECTRIC BARRIER MATERIAL. A COMPRESSIVE SEAL TECHNIQUE WILL BE USED TO FORM THE VACUUM JOINT BETWEEN THE SAPPHIRE AND CONDUCTORS THAT MAKE UP THE WINDOW ASSEMBLY. THIS TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY FOR ROOM TEMPERATURE VACUUM SEALS. IN PHASE I THE SEAL ...

  8. PHOTOCHEMICAL UPGRADING OF NATURAL GAS

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AVAILABLE IN ABUNDANCE IN THE UNITED STATES AND THROUGHTOUT THE WORLD, NATURAL GAS REPRESENTS AN ENORMOUS ENERGY RESERVE. HOWEVER, DIRECT USE OF NATURAL GAS AS FUEL IS CONSTRAINED BY NUMEROUS DIFICULTITES: LOW COMBUSTION EFFICIENCY, UNRELIABLE IGNITION (MISFIRING), AND TRANSPORTATION. A DESIRABLE ALTERNATIVE TO DIRECT USE OF NATURAL GAS IS TO UPGRADE IT TO HIGHER VALUE, TRANSPORTABLE HYDROCARBONS ...

  9. VERY HIGH TEMPERATURE FIBER PROCESSING AND TESTING THROUGH THE USE OF ULTRA-HIGH SOLAR ENERGY CONCENTRATION

    SBC: Nioptics Corp            Topic: N/A

    HIGHER STRENGTH AND LIGHTER WEIGHT FIBER REINFORCED CERAMIC,POLYMER, AND METAL COMPOSITES REQUIRE STRONGER AND MORE THERMALLY STABLE FIBER MATERIALS. SUCH IMPROVEMENTS REQUIRE THE ABILITY TO GROW, PROCESS, AND TEST FIBERS AT HIGHER TEMPERATURES THAN PRESENTLY POSSIBLE IN A PRACTICAL MANNER. THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING, ENHANCING, AND TESTING FIBERS USED IN PRO ...

  10. ENHANCEMENT OF OIL AND GAS RECOVERY USING NOVEL BIOPOLYMERS

    SBC: Princeton Polymers Lab Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR NOVEL WATER-SOLUBLE BIOPOLYMERS THAT TOLERATE LONG-TERM EXPOSURE TO TEMPERATURES EXCEEDING 90 DEGREES CENTIGRADE FOR USE IN ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY. THESE CONDITIONS ARE ENCOUNTERED IN DEEP WELLS. THE BIOPOLYMERS EXHIBIT A COMBINATION OF OTHER USEFUL PROPERTIES, I.E., VISCOSITY RETENTION AT HIGH TEMPERATURES, GOOD SOLUBILITY IN HARD BRINES, LOW ABSORPTIVITY IN ROCK FORMATIONS, AN ...
