|20090237010||End-to-End Lamp Assembly and Method of Manufacturing Same - Disclosed herein are systems and methods for a lamp assembly having a novel design for fitting two or more tube-shaped lamps end-to-end. Such an end-to-end structure may be constructed for use inside a single protective sleeve, such as one constructed of transparent quartz in embodiments where the assembly is used in a decontamination reactor equipment. In exemplary embodiments, the lamps are securely coupled, or otherwise fastened or linked, together end-to-end using any appropriate means for ensuring the integrity and longevity of the connection between the ends of the lamps. The integrity of this end-to-end connection would prevail under any and all circumstances, such as shipping or otherwise moving the assembly, or under normal or abnormal operating conditions, or even in the event that any equipment in which the lamp assembly is used fails during its operation.||09-24-2009|
|20080272050||Multi-Barrier Water Purification System and Method - Disclosed herein are systems and methods for decontaminating a contaminated fluid that integrate ultraviolet radiation in an advanced decontamination process, and a honing material, along with a cross-flow membrane filter, into a single closed-loop system. This approach combines the advantages of chemical-free advanced decontamination technology, long-life wiper-free UV disinfections, and maintenance-free ceramic MF/UF membranes to provide multi-barrier protection. Such technique provides a 100% fluid recovery system (zero reject stream). In one embodiment, the system comprises a filtration membrane and a honing material located in the contaminated fluid that is sufficient to scrub foulants from the membrane, as well as any other components that honing material comes in contact with, while forming a dynamic filtration coating on the membrane as the contaminated fluid pass through the membrane. The system may also comprise an advanced decontamination process sufficient to destroy, by oxidation or reduction, biological and organic contaminants from the contaminated fluid.||11-06-2008|
|20080245746||System and method for removal of hydrogen peroxide from a contaminated media - Disclosed herein are systems and methods for removing hydrogen peroxide from a liquid media. This is accomplished by adding an oxidizable metal to the photoreactive slurry. The oxidizable metal is then oxidized, which then causes the oxidized metal particles to bond to the particles of photoreactive slurry to create oxidized metal catalyst particles. Once bonded to the slurry particles, the metal remains in the decontamination system and its presence destabilizes and catalyzes the decomposition of the hydrogen peroxide in the contaminated media. Once destabilized, the hydrogen peroxide breaks down into water and oxygen particles, which are not detrimental to the operation of the system. The oxygen molecules may be vented from the system, while the water molecules simply mix with the liquid media flowing through the system. The photoreactive slurry and the oxidized metal are recovered and recycled so as not to have to be continuously replenished.||10-09-2008|
