Eliminate Significant Uncertainty in the Control of  Multiphase Flows

Patented AI technology essentially eliminates uncertainties in the metering and management of transparent multiphase flows. The technology works in any gravity, including microgravity and in time-varying acceleration fields. It is therefore applicable to stationary systems and mobile systems, including aircraft, watercraft, and automobiles. Since it is agnostic to gravity, it works on Earth, on orbit, and on the lunar and Martian surfaces.

Ideal working fluids include:

  • Cryogens

  • Refrigerants

  • Water

Space applications include:

  • Mechanically-Pumped Two-phase flow systems

    • Thermal management​

    • Propellant Management

    • Pump protection

  • In-Space Waste management

    • Condensable gas management​

    • Water ISRU

  • Manufacturing​

    • Automation of the component mixing and separation ​

  • Hypersonic aircraft​

  • Surface ships and submarines

Multiphase Flow

We are developing active multiphase flow, and multi-compositional flow, metering technologies utilizing our patented Intelligent Multiphase Flow Sensor / Transducer (IMFST).

 

The IMFST exploits artificial intelligence, particularly deep learning neural networks, to make ultra-high frequency instantaneous measurements of the flow with high resolution spatial accuracy, as opposed to time-averaged and volume-averaged measurements.

 

Current technologies concern relatively optically transparent fluids like cryogens, refrigerants, and water, targeting thermal management systems. The IMFST measures phasic and compositional behaviors concerning voids and particulates comprising a flow, including sizes, distributions, velocities, and deposition and reaction rates, exceeding the capabilities of capacitance, ultrasonic, and other sensors. IMFST can also be programmed to compute physical behaviors on the fly, including thermodynamic quality, heat flux, and thermal margins.

 

The IMFST is acceleration field agnostic, and therefore is accurate for mobile systems such a aircraft and spacecraft that experience acceleration transients and microgravity.

Applications include oil refinery process control, material manufacturing, lunar in situ resource utilization, waste processing, active two-phase thermal management in high-performance aircraft and spacecraft, and electric vehicle battery two-phase cooling systems.
