UATEC - Unidade de Transferência de Tecnologia posted this:Innovative water saving technology, based on recirculation of the same water when it is warming upThe present invention has the following advantages comparing to existing technologies: 1 - It is easy to mount, either in new construction or in existing, because it is a kit and does not involve works of alteration; 2 - It is modular, which allows scaling the technology to all sites or only where the highest consumption occur; 3 - It is reliable because it is based on components with many years of use in hot water systems; 4 - It is automatic, as it connects with the movement of opening a hot water tap on and automatically shuts down ; 5 - it is economic because while consuming electric power, consumption is very low and only for a few seconds; 6 - has a high cost-benefit ratio, it can generate savings that make the return on investment in short times.
Cracow University of Technology posted this:A propulsion/drive system of aquatic vessels.Both proposed side fins drive systems have similar features which are realized by slightly different mechanisms dependant on the room inside vehicles hull. Those features are as follows: - multi-functionality, - ability to generate an extra driving force, - significant increase of swimming speed, - reduction of robot unwanted hull movements during swimming with side fins enabling proper work of onboard equipment and sensors etc. (for solutions in robots imitating fish); - increasing the dynamic of swimming depth changes; - wide range of change of direction of thrust force (also reverse thrust). - unlimited range of change of thrust around axis of rotation of side fins, - ability to dynamically stabilize heel movement of the hull - no change in the direction of rotation of the main engine transferred into oscillatory motion of lateral fins, - less energy consumption, - frequency of oscillation at a level of several Hz

UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Method for recycling of vessels and other structures composed of fiberglass and resinResearchers at the University of Alicante have developed a method to recycle composite fiberglass structures on a polymer matrix (resin). The process removes the polymer matrix, recovering glass fiber which can be reused. The process is not aggressive with fiberglass. It takes place at room temperature and is able to recover all the fiberglass used. The method is industrially scalable and can be automated. Fiberglass composites and resin are widely used in the construction of boat hulls, tanks, wind turbine blades and many other applications. This method is a very important innovation for the sector and there was no effective method that allowed recovering and reusing these materials.
Fundació URV posted this:New optical sensor, system and method of detecting ice on a surfaceThe optical sensor, size of few millimetres, should be flush mounted in surfaces as the wings and flaps of an airplane, wind turbines, cooling chambers, and other surfaces. The sensor is be able to detect ice appearing in early stages of nucleation with micrometric sensitivity on any surface. The sensor allows the generation of an ice map if sensors are installed in array.
Universitat de València posted this:Test Kit for anionic surfactant in waterThe most remarkable advantages provided by this technology are: o Simplicity and versatility of the kit, which allows carrying out a high throughput screening or in situ analysis with very short analysis times. o Low analysis cost, since dyes, organic solvents that generate residues and instrumental equipment are not used. o High sensitivity of the method, that detect anionic surfactant concentration lower than the maximum residue limit established in most of the environmental legislation.
Universidad de Cádiz posted this:New collision prevention system for shipsCurrently substantial efforts are being made in the maritime navigation sector to stop or reduce collisions between ships. Such collisions are significant causes of the loss of human life, losses of vessels and their cargos, and damage to the natural environment of the sea and coastlines. These efforts are being directed towards various different aspects of the problem, in particular the human factor, maritime regulation, the technical evolution of ships and, most importantly, marine navigation equipment.
