This 1,200 square-foot laboratory contains several systems critical to conducting nondestructive testing and evaluation (NDT&E). Included in the equipment are a radiofrequency matching unit and wave generator, an ultrasonic wave generator, and biocoke and densified mass production unit.
The radio frequency generator produces energy at 13.56 MHz, with power ranging from 0-540 W.
Biocoke and Densified Biomass
The following equipment are used for densified biomass production: Retsch SM300 cutting mill. It uses a high torque 3 kW drive and has a capacity to reduce material from 60 x 80 mm to an output size as low as 0.25 mm.
A Thermo Scientific Precision drying oven; moisture analyzer; and specially design reaction cylinder and shop press. Ceramic electric tubular furnace with a thermo controller.
