Machine Vision for Inspection of Thin Films and Membranes


Modular Refrigeration Unit (MRU) provides thermal control to insulated containers in ambient temperatures as high as 130°F and as low as -40°F. Both the MRU-TQ1-404 and MRU-TQ3-404 can be rigidly attached to either the Tricon or Quadcon insulated containers. The MRU is designed to replace the Thermo King VM405 and the Carrier Integra 30S with improved performance, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Using a high-efficiency, environmentally safe refrigerant, the MRU meets or exceeds all requirements for military container heating and cooling.

Biomass Conversion

Fast Pyrolysis Pilot Reactor

Mainstream develops transportable pyrolysis reactors to convert lignocellulosic waste biomass and mixed waste to pyrolysis bio-oil. Moreover, we sell small 1 kg/hr benchtop pyrolysis systems to universities and laboratories engaged in biomass research. We also operate a 1 ton/day pilot reactor at our Rockledge, Florida facility. The pilot-scale reactor was developed for government applications, providing on-site renewable energy generation to improve energy security.


Research Grade Bio-Oil

Agrefine® Bio-Oil low-Ash, Wood-Derived Pyrolysis Bio-Oil

Research quantities of bio-oil (2 L minimum) are available from Mainstream’s fast-pyrolysis pilot reactor for research or evaluation.
