Page 71 - This is a final summary describing research and development work carried out by the Center for Electromechanics at The University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) for the Department of Energy during calendar years 1978, 1979, and 1980.
Page 67 - Nanomiser™ to form submicron droplets, which are then convected to and combusted in the flame. The heat from the flame provides the energy required to evaporate the droplets and to dissociate the precursors; the latter then react and vapor deposit onto the substrate to form the coating. Substrate temperatures can be as low as 1 00C, thus enabling depositions onto a wide variety of materials including plastics.
Page 59 - ... price spikes could have been dampened had these standards been in effect, particularly for air conditioners. Fortunately, Mr. Chairman, we expect to have several of the "high priority" appliance standards in place by the end of this year. In a variety of federal legislation since 1973, including EPCA, the National Energy Conservation Policy Act of 1978 and the Energy Policy Act of 1992, Congress set aggressive goals for cutting energy use in federal buildings and vehicles. The federal government...
