Description

TECHNOLOGY LICENSING OPPORTUNITY

Mass Measurement of Suspended Solids

Opportunity: Idaho National Laboratory (INL), managed and operated by Battelle Energy Alliance, LLC (BEA), is offering the opportunity to enter into a license and/or collaborative research agreement to commercialize this mass measurement of suspended solids technology.

Overview: Liquid fluidized bed with a two phase mixture is the focus of this invention. This device offers a method of monitoring on a batch or continuous process the contents of material suspended in solution or slurry. A few examples of the market follow: 1) Frequently carbon or resin is used in a fluidized bed to absorb impurities, or precious metals. In operations, these absorption materials are periodically removed and replaced. It is important to monitor the amount of carbon or resin present. This instrument monitors this mass. 2) In accountability tanks in metal processing (gold, uranium, etc.) frequently a sludge may build up in a tank. With an agitator, these fine particles of metal can be suspended in a slurry and measured. Thus, the "hold up" inventory of fine particles may be determined. 3) In agitated dissolving tanks, solids such as lime, flue dust, or salts are added to a liquor to be dissolved. This device can monitor the extent of the dissolution of the solids on a batch or continuous process.

Benefits:

  • Low cost

Applications:

  • Wastewater treatment
  • Mineral processing
  • Material accounting

Development Status: TRL 2. This technology has been conceptualized and needs further testing.

IP Status: Patent Application No. 63/129,844, “Mass Measurement of Suspended Solids,” BEA Docket No. BA-1189.
