A cost-effective tip appendage design that reduces tip leakage vortices in axial flow fans to improve fan performance. The appendage is robust in that it is applicable to various axial flow fan designs and can be installed on currently operational units through retrofitting due to its simplistic...

 

A cost-effective, highly efficacious trough assembly for collecting and removing drops with minimal air-side pressure drops for use in evaporative heat exchangers or cooling towers. The innovation reduces water consumption and required fan power. The elimination of a rain zone reduces the...

Background

As the global demand for quality pharmaceutical products continues to grow, conventional production platforms are facing severe limitations in terms of scalability, long production times and high costs.

This solar cooker is small enough to be packed into a backpack in its collapsed form and carried by one person. In its fully assembled state, it takes the shape of a cone. 

The cone is formed by two tiers of tapered panels. The top tier rests within the bottom tier and the bottom tier is wrapped...

This novel system allows for digital monitoring of payloads on heavy vehicles and avoids repetitive, physical weighing of the vehicle to check overloading status. This is achieved by digitally linking all weighbridges and cameras on a specific corridor. Once weighed and photographed, the system...

The invention relates to a novel process of partial oxidation of un-agglomerated chromite ore in ferrochrome production processes.

The process includes the steps of:

  1. providing a source of un-agglomerated chromite ore;
  2. subjecting the source of un-agglomerated chromite ore;
  3. to pre...
