  • The gamma-ray bursts of May 1, 17, 25, and July 11 and 20, 1992 were rapidly localized to regions with dimensions of several arcminutes by the spacecraft of the third interplanetary network. Radio, optical, and soft X-ray follow-up observations were carried out, and a soft X-ray source was detected in one error box. Although the Pioneer Venus Orbiter spacecraft is no longer operating, its place in the network will be taken by Mars Observer, and locations will continue to be produced rapidly.
  • Replacing your accelerator’s timing system with a completely different architecture is not something that happens very often. Perhaps even rarer is the requirement that the replacement not interfere with the accelerator’s normal operational cycle. In 2011, The Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) began the purchasing and installation phase of a nine-year rolling upgrade project which will eventually result in the complete replacement of the low-level RF system, the timing system, the industrial I/O system, the beam-synchronized data acquisition system, the fastprotect reporting system, and much of the diagnostic equipment. These projects are mostly independent of each other, with theirmore » own installation schedules, priorities, and time-lines. All of them, however, must interface with the timing system.« less
  • The scope of the project included the following: install new network backbone, replace 201 MHz rf tubes, replace low-level rf system, replace timing system, replace industrial I/O system, replace beam synchronous data acquisition system, replace fast protect reporting system, new wire scanner hardware, and new beam position/phase monitor hardware--all of this to be done while continuing to deliver beam to users. Lessons learned, for anyone contemplating a similarly ambitious upgrade: You can’t replace the whole system at once. Some compatibility must be maintained between the old and new systems. Always have a way to fall back. Have sympathy for themore » operations staff. You will be surprised.« less
  • In early November, 1996, a new generation of advanced combustion technology using circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers began continuous operation in Robbins, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The Robbins Waste-to-Energy and Recycling Facility processes a minimum of 1,600 Tons-per-day of Municipal Solid Waste. Approximately 400 tons-per-day of waste will be recycled with the remaining 1200 tons fed to one of two 600 ton-per-day circulating fluidized bed steam generating units. The Robbins Facility is designed and operates with the most advanced pollution control equipment. Foster Wheeler and facility personnel, in conjunction with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and Cook County Departmentmore » of Environmental Control, have undertaken a number of programs to optimize environmental performance at the facility, including an on-going, aggressive ambient air monitoring program using a chemical mass balance model and ambient air mercury testing. This paper provides an overview of the design, approach to start-up, actual experiences to date, and the overall operations of the Robbins Facility with emphasis on the monitoring programs and environmental controls.« less

The Robbins Waste-To-Energy and Recycling Facility processes a minimum of 1,600 tons per day of municipal solid waste. Approximately 400 tons per day of waste will be recycled with the remaining 1,200 tons sent to one of two 600 ton per day Circulating Fluidized Bed steam generating units.

The pretommeling of MSW and the glass recovery system, combined with the proven high efficiency, stable combustion and low emissions of the CFB combustion design give the Robbins Facility several unique attributes when compared to other waste-to-energy projects. These attributes are: Low air emissions; high materials--recovery capabilities; superior energy--recovery efficiency; low ash generation; low overall waste-disposal cost. this paper provides an overview of the design, approach to start-up, actual experiences to date, and the overall operations of the Robbins Facility with emphasis on the monitoring programs and environmental controls.« less
