  • Patent number: 8322381
    Abstract: A static conditioner for mounting within a tubular conduit in turn supporting fluid flow therein and including a two-stage construction having a first stage including primary vanes including laterally extending caps radially inwardly extending into the fluid flow so as to separate and direct flow against the conduit walls and a second stage of secondary plates positioned immediately downstream of the first stage and laterally offset therefrom so as to eliminate swirl and turbulence remaining in the flow after the first stage.

  • Patent number: 8069678
    Abstract: A system and apparatus for regasifying liquefied natural gas (LNG) and other cryogenic liquids on a continuous basis utilizing improved atmospheric air vaporizer heat exchangers of the vertical single pass and parallel connected type. A multiplicity of such heat exchangers is positioned on a defined grid, such as to improve the natural convection of the ambient air heat source. An improved heat exchange system includes heat exchange elements within the heat exchangers comprised of hybrid externally finned elements, smooth interior stainless steel tubes thermally bonded within the externally finned elements, the tubes containing vortex generators. Flow distributors in the form of venturi shaped injectors are positioned at the inlet of each tube of the multiplicity of heat exchangers of the system.

  • Patent number: 7779842
    Abstract: An improved high efficiency suction control valve providing unobstructed fluid flow in its activated suction applied mode for removal of viscous secretions at a low level of applied input suction through the catheter. The valve provides positive sealing between a hand-operated plunger and the valve passageway walls against which the plunger engages by slightly over sizing the plunger walls such that the plunger walls expand against a further suction passageway. Similar sealing is provided between the plunger and passageway above the suction passageway.
