    Thin-film solar cells analysis for energy industry

    The research and development in the field of thin-film solar cells is an on-going process to improve efficiency even further, and to reduce manufacturing costs. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a field proven technology enabling users to control critical properties during development and manufacturing of the solar cells, such as elemental layer thickness and composition, improving quality and productivity, with resultant cost savings.

    Measurement of oil content of oil bearing algae used for biofuel production

    We assist the rapidly growing global biofuels industry through our MQC analysers, speeding up analyses by up to 250 times, and dispensing with the need for hazardous solvents and skilled operators required for traditional methods such as soxhlet extraction and chromatography. Benchtop, non-destructive single seed analysers enable seed breeders to select the highest oil bearing single seeds, accelerating the breeding of high oil bearing seeds for biofuel purposes by up to five years. Typical seeds are Jatropha and Camelina; our breadth of applications capability allows almost all seeds to be characterised. Benchtop seed analysers allow seed co-operatives and biofuel crushers/processors rapidly and accurately to measure the oil and moisture content of biofuel seeds. This enables farmers to be paid according to oil content, and crushing/oil processing to be optimised for the oil and moisture content to achieve the highest quality biofuel output.

  • Pulsair`s industrial mixers for biodiesel fuel industry

    Pulsair Systems manufactures the most efficient and effective storage tank mixing process for blending and agitating biodiesel fuel. The efficient Pulsair mixing process is well suited for the high viscosity and heavy fluid characteristic of biodiesel. Pulsair offers a complete line of off the shelf biodiesel fuel mixers and agitators for mixing in a 55-gallon drum or larger 250 - 1 million+ gallon tanks for biodiesel fuel storage or production. Pulsair biodiesel fuel mixers are explosion proof and safe for biodiesel mixing. Biodiesel is a flammable product and the fire risks are reduced when using the Pulsair mixing process because our mixers do not require electricity at the mixing site. This improves the overall safety of the biodiesel production process and biodiesel fuel storage tank mixing and agitation.

  • Waste gas & wastewater treatment for the solar industry

    Generating solar energy is considered `green technology`, even though the production of solar cells based on silicon predominantly uses process stages that have been common practice in the semiconductor industry for many years. As in the semiconductor industry the production of solar cells employs dangerous and environmentally harmful substances, which require abatement according to legal provisions. The production of photovoltaic cells therefore is subject to strict requirements for treatment of waste gases and wastewater. Solutions need to be easy and cost-effective. The contaminated wastewaters and waste gases should, under no circumstances, lower performance, endanger the health and safety of humans, or otherwise negatively affect the availability of production facilities. The safety of the production line must be guaranteed at every step and in every operating situation.
