  1. Destruction of Aflatoxins in Grain Using Gaseous Ozone

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC.            Topic: 82

    Mycotoxins are compounds produced by certain species of fungi which infect grains such as corn and peanuts. Among the most common and most toxic of these are the aflatoxins (AF), with AFB1 and AFG1 recognized as potent carcinogens in addition to their other negative effects. Contamination results in large economic losses at all levels of food production. Few effective means of treating contamin ...

  2. A QUICK DIAGNOSTIC TEST TO DETECT A DEADLY BACTERIA INFECTING CHANNEL CATFISH

    SBC: Athens Research And Technology            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL CATFISH PRODUCTION IS SIGNIFICANTLY IMPAIRED BY INFECTIOUS DISEASES, A MAJOR CAUSE OF ECONOMIC LOSSES TO THE CATFISH PRODUCER. ONE OF THE MOST DETRIMENTAL OF THESE INFECTIOUS DISEASES IS ENTERIC SEPTICEMIA OF CATFISH (ESC) CAUSED BY EDWARDSIELLA ICTALURI. IN 1987, APPROXIMATELY $4 MILLION WORTH OF FISH IN MISSISSIPPI ALONE DIED FROM ESC. PROMPT TREATMENT OF INFECTED FISH INCREASES THE C ...

  3. Low Cost Instrument for Automatic Determination of Cloud Cover

    SBC: YANKEE ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a continuing need for reliable cloud observations to drive climatic UV-B prediction models. Traditionally, observations such as cloud cover are made by human observers, and thus often suffer from uncertainties due to the subjectivity of the observer. Cloud cover data is especially important in UV-B hazard prediction, as well as storm prediction. It is generally accepted that UV-B doses ...

  4. PREDICTIONS OF ROCK ANCHOR CAPACITIES BY UP-HOLE SEISMIC VELOCITY TECHNIQUES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD OF ESTABLISHING THE HOLDING CAPACITY OF ROCK ANCHORS IS PROPOSED. THE TECHNIQUE INVOLVES IMPROVED ELECTRONICS TO ESTABLISH UP-HOLD SEISMIC PROFILES. THESE VELOCITIES WOULD PROVIDE A QUANTIFIABLE METHOD OF DESIGNING ANCHORAGES IN COMPLEX STRATIGRAPHIES AND FRACTURED CONDITIONS SUCH AS COMMONLY FOUND IN CABLE LOGGING OPERATIONS. THE SYSTEM, OPERABLE BY A LAY LOGGER, WOULD ALLOW UTILIZATION ...

  6. Utilization of Wood Fibers as Secondary Reinforcement in Conventional Concrete Construction

    SBC: DPD, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Past applications of wood fibers in cement-based materials have been limited to the specialty market of thin cement panels. Synthetic fibers have recently gained tremendous popularity as secondary reinforcement in conventional concrete for shrinkage crack control. Concrete reinforcing fibers should provide high levels of slenderness ratio, elastic modulus, tensile and bond strengths, and finenes ...

  10. EVALUATION OF A FILTER PRESS SYSTEM TO REDUCE MOISTURE CONTENT OF FISH PRODUCTION WASTES

    SBC: Bay Port Fish Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AS THE AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY HAS GROWN, LITTLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF AQUACULTURE, UNTIL RECENTLY. BETTER COLLECTION TECHNIQUES FOR FISH WASTEMATERIAL, WHICH IS IN THE FORM OF A SLURRY AND IS APPROXIMATELY 95% WATER, HAVE INCREASED OPERATING COSTS FOR THE AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY TO TREAT EFFLUENTS AND DISPOSE OF SOLIDS GENERATED. FUTURE REGULATIONS MAY LIMIT CURRENT D ...
