AROMA Tracer Detection Commercialized Product
Entanglement Technologies Inc. has integrated their core technology into the Micromem product that combines next generation broadly-tunable cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) with unique surface-interaction dependent separation techniques to apply the extraordinary sensitivity of CRDS to entirely new classes of complex chemical analysis. This product allows companies to perform tracer detection studies in producing oil fields to install the AROMA platform either directly on the oil well production piping, allowing for continuous tracer sampling. The Micromem product eliminates the dangers to employees performing the manual sampling, reducing errors in sample quality and eliminates completely the long-time delays and costs of shipping manual collected around the world back to corporate labs for chemical analysis.
Power Transformer Oil Degradation Sensor
Micromem again working with a leading US power utility, has developed a wireless sensor system that measures partial discharges within electrical transformers – a key indicator of impending transformer failure. Micromem developed the sensor system, which transmits the information to the utility’s Operations Center where expert system software developed by Micromem analyzes the sensor data and suggests corrective actions, heading off potential power outages.
MEMS Sensor System for Real Time Wear Analysis
Micromem has developed a miniaturized Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) prototype device based on our fluorescent nanoparticle detection technology and our MEMS capabilities. Using LIBS, our device can identify the elemental composition of contaminants in a lubricating fluid, allowing for more rapid isolation of the device wear characteristics enabling faster corrective actions.
Integrated Oil Pan Plug Analysis System
Micromem working with a leading automotive company, developed a prototype “lab on a chip” sensor system that simultaneously provides accurate measurements of the oil level, as well as particulate analysis of any contaminants in the oil pan. The system transmits the resulting data wirelessly through the standardized Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) network for processing and trouble indication.
