New Delhi :
Researchers of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT Madras) have developed a multipoint temperature measurement sensor ‘µTMapS’ (patented in India & U.S.) technology to enhance industrial ovens, to increase the efficiency of industrial ovens in fertiliser, petrochemical, chemical and manufacturing sectors. The technology can accurately measure between -100 degrees and 1,400 degrees Celsius. It uses ultrasonic waves to gather real-time data from across the furnace, which it can then send to a centralized system through an integrated Internet of Things (IoT) connection where it can be tracked and studied.

Team claimed that µTMapS can replace existing heat –

Called the ‘Multi Point Temperature Measurement Sensor’ (µTMapS), the high-tech sensor provides automated and intelligent measurements. The team claimed that µTMapS can replace existing heat process control systems that often cause long and expensive forced shutdowns, the Economic Times reported.

Entire furnace has a uniform temperature –

Professor Krishnan Balasubramaniam, The head of the Centre, IIT-M in a report said, “Any industry that uses a lot of heat to process materials such as metals or polymers has to ensure that the entire furnace has a uniform temperature across the board. This is critical to reducing defective products. However, existing technologies for this purpose have a lot of gaps and our Research Team at Centre for Non-destructive Evaluation set out to address these gaps.”

New Delhi :
Researchers of Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IIT Hyderabad) has proposed work on Metals CO2 battery which is likely to play key role in Indian Mars Mission 2024. Dr Chandra Shekhar Sharma, Associate Professor at IIT- H has been awarded the prestigious Swarnajayanti Fellowship 2019-2020 for his proposed work on Metals CO2 battery. A prototype will be developed and @isro/@DRDO_India will be consulted for the Indian space mission.

Pivotal role in India’s 2024 Mars Mission –

Dr Sharma will receive due support from DST (Department of Science and Technology) and SERB (Science and Engineering Research Board) to further develop this concept which can play a pivotal role in India’s 2024 Mars Mission and fixing the CO2 emissions that cause global warming. The faculty member is also founder of Creative & Advanced Research Based On Nanomaterials (CARBON) Laboratory.

An outcome of this fellowship and organisations –

A real battery prototype will be developed as an outcome of this fellowship and organisations ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) and DRDO (Defense Research Development Organisation) will be brought on board in the early phase of the project for timely inputs for indigenous battery development for the Indian space mission.

Large energy is required leading to more CO2 emissions –

The second important aspect of this work is to develop Metal-CO2 battery technology also as a promising clean strategy for restraining the climate effects of CO2 emissions on earth as we all know that it is one of the main reasons for global warming. For traditional CO2 fixation methods, large energy is required leading to more CO2 emissions. Metal-CO2 batteries have a great potential to offer significantly higher energy density than the currently used Li-ion batteries and provide a striking option to fix CO2 emissions & environmental protection also.
