During metallic wire drawing processes, the presence of knots and the failure to detect them can lead to long production interruptions, significant economic losses and a lower quality of final product. Consequently, there is a pressing need to develop methods for real-time detection and prevention of this fault. In this paper a sensor to prevent the formation of knots during the metallic wire drawing process is presented and evaluated by means of experimental data. This fast, inexpensive, non-contact sensor is based on electromagnetic principles such as eddy current induction, magnetic reluctance variations and magnetic coupling. The proposed sensor can detect knots in a target metallic wire without direct contact by measuring the impedance variations of a calibrated sensing coil caused either by a knot or an unwound loop rising from a wire rod. The incorporation of this type of sensor into a wire drawing machine can avoid the tightening of the knot, thereby reducing downtime and increasing the security and reliability of the process. Experiments were conducted using a scale model of the above proposed system. This allowed to highlight the sensor’s potential by carrying out an automatic, real-time knot detection during steel wire drawing.

Small-scale production of straight vegetable oil from rapeseed and its use as biofuel in the Spanish territory Baquero Armans, Grau; Esteban Dalmau, Bernat; Rius Carrasco, Antoni; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Puig, Rita (Elsevier, 2010-01)Biofuels nowadays are an important topic of study. The most significant point is the availability of bioethanol or biodiesel and their production from different raw materials. It is already known that large-scale production ...
An evaluation of the life cycle cost of rapeseed oil as a straight vegetable oil fuel to replace petroleum diesel in agriculture Baquero Armans, Grau; Esteban Dalmau, Bernat; Riba Ruiz, Jordi-Roger; Rius Carrasco, Antoni; Puig, Rita (Elsevier, 2011-08)The use of straight vegetable oil (SVO) as biofuel has been recognized as a valid substitute of diesel fuel in the agricultural sector under specific circumstances. Its direct use reduces most of the chemical processes ...
