uacoopera posted this:Variable flow pump for longitudinal displacementA Portuguese University has developed an invention consisting of a new concept of flow variation in a vane pump that allows to bypass the concepts now patented and used. This invention therefore relates to a variable displacement vane pump and the variations in the fluid’s flow rate conveyed by the pump for a given rotation is achieved by changing a longitudinal length of the chambers, and not by changing the eccentricity between the ring and the rotor. This is the main difference between this and the variable flow vane pumps currently available. The university is looking for companies that develop and produce oil pumps to license this technology.

Claude Waudoit posted this:Water and Energy saving faucetsIn order to reduce the waiting time for hot water, we usually install hot water circulation loops that waste a lot of energy. The waiting time for hot water is uncomfortable and makes you waste +/- 10 gal of water/day/house to the sink. To overcome the problem and to avoid user's complaints, most plumbers adds a hot water recirculation loop that keep the water in the hot water supply pipe hot. This type of hot water circulating loop provides nearly instant hot water at the fixtures but wastes a tremendous amount of energy (pump consumption plus pipes heat dissipation). Measured energy wasted in the hot water recirculation loop in a 2-story, 3,200 sf. house: - Continuous recirculation: 21 KWh/day corresponding to 875 W continuously, 1600 € /year. - With timer and aquastat: over 10 KWh/day, corresponding to 410 W continuously, 800 €/year. - Demand control (manual actuation, then wait 1 min.): 2 KWh/day, corresponding to 80W continuously, 160€/year Up to 20% of the house energy consumption is wasted only to reduce the waiting time for hot water. The Water & Energy saving faucet provide access to the hot water within seconds, as fast as if you had a hot water recycling loop installed, but it do not wastes a single drop of water and it do not wastes any energy at all.

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Water Footprint assessment to minimize the impacts to the Water Footprint valueWater footprint is a novel indicator of freshwater use, which quantifies the volume of water required by a product, service or activity when and where it is consumed. It includes both direct and indirect freshwater consumption. It also provides information on sustainability, by comparing the Water Footprint value with the availability and quality of water resource in situ. The final aim is to manage an improvement strategy designed to minimize the impacts related to this Water Footprint value. The three colours of water: • Green water. Rainwater, stored in soil as humidity, removed by plants in evapotranspiration processes. It is the main component in agrifood industries. • Blue water. Water volume that depends on a more or less complex infrastructure for its use. Its origin may be surface or subterranean. The traditional indicators for water use have focused on this component. • Grey water. Water volume that is required to buffer the concentration of pollutants that are spread in the environment. It depends on the quantity and quality of the spill, the essential quality of the receiving environment and the standards that are used to assess the environmental quality. Water footprint can be assessed in multiple scopes or levels (process, product, consumer, producer, business) by considering both direct and indirect impacts over the whole life cycle. Nowadays it is possible to achieve Water Footprint certification by implementing one of these two international standards: • WATER FOOTPRINT NETWORK – Water footprint assessment manual • ISO 14046 – Water footprint – Principles, requirements and guidelines
IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Water resources and contaminant transport modellingWhy modelling? Numerical models are important tools in the study of water resources. They can help understand processes (and their importance) that occur in a certain geological context. The rapid progress in the development of numerical models and computer hardware has improved simulation capability to an extent where we can routinely develop basin scale models. One of the main driving forces for hydrogeological model is the need to assess water supply potential of aquifers. Over the past 20 years, however, the emphasis has shifted from water supply problems to water quality issues. This means that while formerly the focus was almost exclusively on developing methods to assess and measure the water-yielding properties of aquifers, now the focus is largely on transport and dispersion processes, retardation and degradation of chemical contaminants. Numerical models are also applied to describe and interpret the reactive processes affecting contaminant transport through the porous media during laboratory-level experiments.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Waterproof optical probe with continuous and automatic register for nitrate concentration control of water resources (superficial and groundwater).Currently, nitrate concentration measurement can be done by using different techniques (spectrofotometric analysis, ion selective electrode, colorimetric and chromatographic liquid) by taking a sample from the environment and in a non continuous way. The solution allows the study of the sample in situ and in a continuous way by comparing it with the spectral response of some samples of known nitrate concentration (patterns). These are obtained previously in the laboratory and are essential for the calibration of the probe.

Pulsa posted this:Weight & gas pressure IoT sensor telemetry solution with machine learning predictive inventoryPulsa provides predictive inventory via purpose-built, connected hardware and an advanced machine learning backend. We are able to understand variable consumption and tell our customers when they actually need to refill or reorder inventory, instead of repeatedly checking every item. We have built our product to address a large portion of the real-time inventory market, and we are initially focused on industrial gas cylinders. We can eliminate production down time due to depleted gas cylinders and reduce the number of cylinders held in inventory. Our solution, compared to other existing in-market solutions, is significantly more affordable (10x more affordable than existing solutions) and easier to set up (out of box set-up, does not require technical experience) than existing inventory telemetry products. It also combines the real time inventory knowledge with an advanced machine learning backend that predicts when inventory needs to be replenished and notifies end users.

It is very simple: it improves ergonomics, avoids rubbing, it is easy to use (the suit can be worn throughout the day) and is designed to avoid injuries and pathologies and increase training time. The suit has weighted segments arranged proportionally over all the different parts of the user’s body (the exact arrangement is determined by personalised anthropometric studies). The group is seeking companies interested in acquiring and using the technology. Innovative features: The suit is fitted with weighted segments arranged proportionally over the different parts of the user’s body, leaving the head, hands, feet and main joints free. Each segment is allocated a greater or lesser load according to the user’s needs and the activity to be carried out. The arrangement of the weights is determined by personalised anthropometric studies using the Marfell-Jones methodology. The suit is ergonomic and avoids rubbing, is easy to use (it allows muscle development while the user is not training, thus saving time) and, most importantly, does not cause injuries or pathologies.
