The CSIR has designed and developed a detection device to detect sedimentation of solids during slurry transportation to tailings dams. The technology prevents blockages and also enables the optimisation of pumping conditions to reduce water and energy consumption.
As electricity consumption around the world increases, power utilities are experiencing more and more pressure to manage their available power supplies more efficiently. Preventative maintenance can reduce blackouts and power loss on high voltage equipment. This means identifying electricity faults before too much electricity is lost. These electricity leaks, however, are invisible to the naked eye. This is where CoroCAM comes in.
ReSyn Biosciences, a biotechnology spin-off company from the CSIR, won a prestigious new product award at the Society for Lab Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference held in Washington, DC, in the United States of America for its range of innovative MagReSyn® microsphere products.
A simple idea to use existing environmental and oceanographic numerical models and data to create an early-warning system that could help prevent drownings along the Western Cape coast, has developed into a comprehensive tool that is already proving popular and useful among False Bay fishermen.
