Paper presentation: Thermally-driven ejector for vacuum freezing desalination at the triple point by ACT researcher Jianjian Wang (co-authored by Fangyu Cao)

Abstract: Recently an energy-efficient desalination process based on spray vacuum freezing of seawater at the triple point was developed. During this process, the freezing and evaporation of the water happen simultaneously at the triple point with net-zero thermal energy consumption...

Paper Presentation by Calin Tarau: Advanced Thermal Management System For Nuclear-Powered Ice Melting Probe  

Abstract: A thermal concept for the ice penetration and navigation probe to support future NASA’s icy planets (e.g. Europa, Enceladus) exploration missions is developed. This thermal concept applies to both nuclear and radioisotope powered systems while the energy conversion is thermoelectric based. The thermal concept contains multiple features that can maximize the power fraction used for forward melting and mitigate a series of foreseen challenges related to icy-planetary missions.

Paper Presentation by ACT's Devon Jensen: Liquid Propellent Energy Enhancement at Booth 3079

Abstract: Boron nano-fuel is an engineered combination of boron nanoparticles (BNPs) and synthetic missile fuel designed to increase the range of Navy weapon systems. Advanced Cooling Technologies Inc. (ACT) specializes in heat transfer research with extensive experience in converting SBIR projects for the US government. The US Navy has keen interest in BNP-fuel due to its higher volumetric energy density. Unlike synthetically engineering fuels, using BNP additives enables fuel enhancement without significantly increasing fuel viscosity. Specifically, ACT has demonstrated a 1.3 cP change in viscosity from an 8% BNP mixture with JP-10, while simultaneously achieving a 10% increase in energy density. The ultimate goal is to transition this technology to prime contractors for the mass-production of BNP-enhanced fuels.

WEBINAR: KEEPING YOUR CONTROL ELECTRONICS CABINETS COOL, CLEAN, AND OPERATIONAL

April 29

Electronics Integrators are continuously working to find solutions that keep electronics below max operating temperature. Keeping environmental debris such as water, dust and humidity out of these systems is often a challenge, but necessary for optimal performance. Functional requirements are driving innovative electronics to higher power densities, necessitating the increased usage of power electronics control devices, like Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs), Transformers, and Power Supplies, which are giving off more and more waste heat. These control cabinets are also being…
