Researchers at Tecnalia and the ICMCB-CNRS have recently published the article "Ultra-Fast Supercritical Hydrothermal Synthesis of Tobermorite under Thermodynamically Metastable Conditions" in the prestigious scientific journal Angewandte Chemie. The article proposes an ultrarapid synthesis of nano-tobermorite, a nanoparticle used to speed up the hardening of concrete and regarded as a high-added value addition. The possibility of producing tobermorite nanofibres in water in supercritical conditions (400 ?C and 235 bar) has been demonstrated, when above 200 ?C it had been thought to be impossible. What is more, the outcome is a product of a higher quality made possible by the fact that a piece of non-traditional equipment, which allows the conditions and reaction times to be thoroughly monitored, has been developed. The technology developed is, according to the researchers involved, "The Advanced Manufacturing Technique" for producing nanoparticles; it is and will be very important for any SME in the field of nanotechnology since it enables two aspects that are intrinsic to industrial production to be achieved: quantity and quality. Firstly, tobermorite nanoparticles can be synthesised within the space of 10 seconds as opposed to several days taken by traditional synthesis methods. Secondly, the synthesis method using supercritical fluids produces better replicas of natural tobermorite, in other words, it allows more perfect nanoparticles to be produced. Furthermore, the journal has designated the work as a Very Important Paper, and frontispiece, in other words, it is regarded as being within a 5th percentile and a showcase of the publication given that it has been selected as the back cover. This work is the outcome of collaboration between Tecnalia, the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country, the University of Bordeaux and the ICMCB-CNRS within the framework of the euro-regional campus of excellence Euskampus-IDEX of Bordeaux.

It has been possible to demonstrate scientifically that tobermorite can be produced at 400 ⁰C when above 200 ⁰C it had been thought to be impossible. This mineral has been found in concrete buildings dating back to Roman times and could hold the key to their durability. Researchers at Tecnalia and the ICMCB-CNRS have recently published the article “Ultra-Fast Supercritical Hydrothermal Synthesis of Tobermorite under Thermodynamically Metastable Conditions” in the prestigious scientific journal Angewandte Chemie.

Patent
IDEX Corp | Date: 2012-11-12

Rotary vane pumps include casings having asymmetrical cavities that accommodate a rotor. For a single pump chamber, one portion of the rotor abuts or nearly abuts the inner wall of the cavity at a single location while one portion of the rotor and the inner wall are not in contact with each other thereby defining a pump chamber. For a dual pump chamber embodiment, two diametrically opposed portions of the rotor abut or nearly abut the inner wall of the cavity while two portions of the rotor and inner wall are not in contact with each other thereby defining the two pump chambers. The two pump chambers are disposed on opposite sides of the minor axis of the cavity. The cavities of each pump are skewed so each pump chamber is larger in volume at the inlet end than at the outlet end.


Patent
IDEX Corp | Date: 2013-03-15

Pump assemblies are disclosed that have a magnetically driven pump-head subassembly and a pump-driver subassembly coupled thereto, wherein the pump-driver subassembly includes a pump-driver enclosure. The pump-head subassembly comprises a rotatable magnet contained in a magnet cup extending into the pump-driver enclosure. The pump-driver subassembly has a printed circuit board (PCB) in the pump-driver enclosure and a stator mounted to the PCB. The stator coaxially surrounds the magnet cup. The magnet cup has a distal-end wall. The printed circuit board includes a stator-driving circuit and at least one signal-processing circuit. The PCB defines a void relative to the distal-end wall that exposes at least half the distal-end wall. The pump-driver enclosure has an aspect ratio of no greater than one (unity).
