  • Reusing of oil industry waste as secondary material in clay bricks

    In this study, various oil industrial wastes such as spent filtration earth (SFE), spent bleaching earth (SBE), sludge from oil refining industry (SOI) or sludge from pomace oil extraction industry...
  • Dieletric mineral oil conditioned with graphene nanoflakes

    The invention relates to a dielectric mineral oil composition for a transformer, formed by at least one dielectric mineral oil and graphene nanoflakes decorated with metal nanoparticles and/or...
  • Effect of sludge from oil refining or from pomace oil extraction industry addition to clay ceramics

    This work studies mixing sludge from oil refining industry (SOI) or sludge from pomace oil extraction industry (SPOEI) with clay in order to produce lightweight bricks for civil construction....

  • Typical Liquid Effusivities

    The Mathis Technology is a useful tool for testing liquids to evaluate for thermal effusivity or for a quick comparison to other liquids for quality control. For example if thermal effusivity...

  • Measuring Concentrations

    The Mathis Technology measures effusivity, the combination of thermal conductivity, density and heat capacity. The measurement is sensitive to all three properties and makes it an excellent tool to...

  • Testing Minerals in Process

    The Mathis Technology has successfully been used to test granular minerals during processing. One application evaluated the percent removal of oil from Kuwaiti sand (see figures below). Another...

  • Kinetics of Oil and Water Separation

    The Mathis Technology has the ability to obtain thermal data on solid and liquid samples within seconds. This has begged the question “Can we use the instrument for kinetic studies?” In a recent...

  • Detection of Micro-Bubbles

    Advanced resin materials are used on submarines to reduce sound, acoustic signatures and vibration. In the manufacturing of the material, air can become entrapped causing the formation of...

  • Thermal Effusivity: Characterizing Gas Diffusion Electrodes

    Preliminary results for a new methodology of measuring porosity in gas diffusion electrodes are presented. A  rapid, non-destructive method to characterize composite materials processed in a film...
