My name is Ray C. Brown I was awarded a United States Patent for a device that creates vacuum. There are various uses for this device, one being Beach Restoration.
" BEACH RESTORATION "
The current process involves what I call the "PUMP and DUMP" method.The "Donor Sand", which can be well over three miles out to sea, is collected by means of a "Hopper Dredge", a sort of Ocean going "Dump Truck", or If the sand is closer to shore it can be pumped.Pipe for the sand to be pumped through is welded together for EVERY MILE of Beach, then cut apart to be removed. Bulldozers than push the sand back into the Ocean to a distance of 300 hundred yards with the hope 100 yards will be left after the winter storms.
THIS PROCESS CREATES ANUNNATURAL SLOPE ALONG WITH A VERY DANGEROUS LEDGE, WHICH CAN BE AS HIGH AS 25 FEET!
THE CORP OF ENGINEERS ,ALONG WITH THE EXPERTS IN THE FIELD, KNOW THAT A RESTORED BEACH WITH AN "UNNATURAL SLOPE" WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED IN LESS THAN FIVE YEARS!
This process is costly, time consuming, labor intensive, extremely inefficient and bad for the environment.
" A NATURAL SLOPE WILL LAST 50 YEARS! "
" Anyone can pump sand onto a Beach , I can Remove the Beach! "
My Device, along with my " Patent Pending " method, will reach areas that today's Dredge's are unable to, enabling sand to be pump directly onto the Beach where you want!. Greatly reducing time, fuel, labor and pollution while being extremely more Efficient and Environmentally Friendly and creating the much more desirable NATURAL SLOPE !
" REMOVE CONTAMINATED SANDS "
Unlike today's Dredge Equipment My Vacuum system's Intake can be removed from the water without losing Vacuum, making it virtually impossible to "Plug Up".
With the slurry Mix moving through the Intake tube at a speed close to two and a half times faster, while having a Solid to Liquid ratio of 80% Solids to 20% Liquid, in comparison to the Ratio of 7% Solids to 93% Liquid for today's Dredge's, the efficiency of My Vacuum System is far Superior!.
Besides the aforementioned, My Device has the ability to TOTALLY REMOVE Materials and Beaches containing Dangerous Contaminants, such as PCB'S, with minimal loss back into the Eco-System, if any! The Equipment in use today cannot ! In a catastrophe such as an Oil Spill my device would not only recover the Oil in the water but remove the Oil contaminated Beach Material. This material would then be removed or Transferred to a Re-fitted Tanker, where the Material would be Washed, with a Bio-Degradable Detergent , enabling the Cleaned Materials to be returned to the Beach and the Oil recovered for use .
" THERE IS AN IMMEDIATE NEED FOR THIS EQUIPTMENT AND METHODS "
"Oil Leak / Spill leaching Hundreds of gallons of Oil into the Hudson River daily "
At this very moment , there is an on going Oil Leak / Spill leaching Hundreds of gallons of Oil into the Hudson River daily.This leak located in the highly populated lower Hudson River Area, within New York City, is in immediate need of clean up! ESSO OIL is responsible for this Spill / Leak and should be made to bear the costs for the clean up and remediation of the Property!
" PCB contamination along the Banks and Bottom of the Hudson River "
GE has been at odds with, what they perceive, the unnecessary removal of PCB contaminated Materials from the banks and bottom of the Hudson River. Citing such problems as De-Watering along with Churning up the PCB's while dredging, causing the PCB's to be put into suspension, along with leaving the last Five foot or so of Contaminated Overburden and most of the PCB contaminated Beaches in place, would cause more harm than good!
Using that scenario, they claim and rightly so, the PCB's would be re-suspended allowing their migration down stream and with the last five foot or so of overburden along with most of the Beach material still in place, in esscence nothing would change, other than the depth of the contaminated Overburden and the width of the beach area's . More damage would be caused by this action than good can come out of it.That may well be true using the Equiptment available today.
This is where My Patented Vacuum System and Method changes ALL the Rules being applied in that scenario, Refer to the " REMOVE CONTAMINATED SANDS " section, The Removal Process of the PCB contaminated Materials, along the Banks and Bottom of the Hudson River, would benefit through the Far more Safer and Efficient use of my Patented Vacuum Device and Method. The Vacuum created in my Device is significantly superior to the equipment available today and the Method Employed to remove these contaminated Materials cannot be Duplicated with the Equipment available today, PERIOD!
" NON-PROFIT "GREEN COMPANY " DEDICATED TO A GREEN EARTH "
I need help to raise the necessary money to start a NON-PROFIT Company to build theses machines, that can then be sold world wide, greatly reducing Pollution! All money's generated by this company other than that necessary to run the company will be used to help reduce pollution and Green the Earth! Please Help, Thank You for Your time and consideration, Ray C. Brown
