Sand Lime Bricks

Inspired by the natural processes of the earth's crust, in the 19th century the first attempts in fabricating units (bricks) from sand and lime were made.The production of calcium silicate units on an industrial level became feasible after the introduction of the first rotating presses, which were designed in England. Calcium silicate masonry constructions meet the highest requirements with respect to load bearing capacity, sound insulation, fire resistance and thermal insulation.

CNC Machining

CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control, and refers specifically to a computer "controller" that reads G-code instructions and drives the machine tool, a powered mechanical device typically used to fabricate metal components by the selective removal of metal. CNC machines used to be associated with high-volume production due to the time involved in machine programming. New computer technologies,along with software advances, now allow easy programming of CNC machines for custom or one-of parts.

Chlorosilanes

Chlorosilanes are a group of reactive, chlorine-containing chemical compounds, related to silane and used in many chemical processes. Each such chemical has at least one silicon-chlorine bond. Chlorosilanes are intermediates used to manufacture siloxanes and silanes – the building blocks for many silicone products. Chlorosilanes are therefore not found in final applications. Organic chlorosilanes are frequently used as coatings for silicon and glass surfaces, and in the production of silicone (polysiloxane) polymers. While phenyl chlorosilanes and many others can be used, methylsiloxanes are produced in the greatest quantities.

Teleradiology

Teleradiology is the electronic transmission of radiographic images from one geographical location to another for the purposes of interpretation and consultation. The teleradiology reporting service may not have the same degree of access to previous investigations and reports as a clinical radiologist working within the primary department. Failure to have full access to clinical information and previous investigations will be contrary to routine practice and is likely to compromise the quality of care.

Medical Waste Disposal

Medical Waste” is defined as all waste generated in direct patient care or in diagnostic or research areas that is non-infectious but aesthetically repugnant if found in the environment. Plasma pyrolysis provides solutions for complete pyrolysis of typical hospital waste such as cellulose polymer dressings, polyvinyl chloride blood bags, polyurethane and silicon rubber gloves & catheters and other disposables made of polyethylene, polymethyl methacrylate, rubber, glass etc. The amount of hospital waste generated in US hospitals is approximately 6,670 tons per day, or about 1% of the 158 million tons of municipal solid waste produced annually.

Transdermal Drug Delivery

Transdermal drug delivery provides excellent control of the rate of delivery directly into the bloodstream. It also offers a predictable pharmacokinetic profile and constant drug levels over extended periods of time without the extreme peak/trough fluctuations inherent in oral administration. And discontinuation of therapy can be achieved immediately by simply removing the patch. The total market for TDD products in the US, major European markets, and Japan was approximately $2.5 billion in 2001 (this does not include a $1.4 billion market for plaster/poultice products in Japan).

Nanoceramic Powders

Ceramic powder is a necessary ingredient for most of the structural ceramics, electronic ceramics, ceramic coatings, and chemical processing and environmental related ceramics. For most advanced ceramic components, starting powder is a crucial factor. The performance characteristics of a ceramic component are greatly influenced by precursor powder characteristics. Among the most important are the powder's chemical purity, particle size distribution, and the manner in which the powders are packed in the green body before sintering. The total U.S. market for advanced ceramic powders in 2002, including nanopowders, was estimated to be 918 million pounds worth $1,605 million. This is projected to increase at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 7.3% to 1,178 million pounds worth $2,286 million by 2007. For 2002, BCC estimates that the total consumption of nanosize ceramic powders was about $154 million, and is expected to grow at an AAGR of 9.3% to $241 million by 2007.
