    • Kilowatts From Waste Wood In The Furniture Industry 

      Nailen, R. L. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1981)
      In a typical furniture factory, up to 70% of all incoming lumber ends up as useless waste. Though burnable, its enormous volume far exceeds the fuel needs of the plant's steam supply system. The excess must go to scarce, ...
    • Know Your Turbomachinery’s Operating Environment! 

      Linden, David (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Not accounting for detrimental environment factors in the design and environment degradation are two of the most common causes of Turbomachinery component failures. This paper discusses the importance of knowing the operating ...
    • Knowledge-Based Tool Development And Design For Reciprocating Compressors. 

      Howard, Brian F.; Kocur, John A. (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2009)
      Condition monitoring data collection capabilities have grown over the last decade in large part due to advances in integrated circuits (IC). These advances now permit real time thermodynamic and process calculations on ...
    • Laboratory Air Handling Unit System 

      Cui, Y.; Liu, M. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 2001)
      An innovative AHU system is presented in this paper. The proposed AHU system is called a Laboratory Air Handling Unit (LAHU) system since it is most suitable for the buildings where one section (laboratory) has 100% exhaust ...
    • Laboratory Heat Recovery System 

      Burrows, D. B.; Mendez, F. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory ( A&M University (, 1981)
      In 1976 Continental Oil Company (now Conoco, Inc.) made a far reaching decision. Looking at the future needs of the country in the energy field, it decided to increase and improve its research and development facilities ...
