  • Patent number: 10875778
    Abstract: A novel process is described for the preparation of a microporous crystalline solid, known as IZM-2 microporous solid or IZM-2 zeolite. This novel process consists of carrying out the synthesis of IZM-2 zeolite by conversion/transformation of a zeolite with structure type FAU under hydrothermal conditions. In particular, said novel process consists of carrying out the synthesis of an IZM-2 zeolite starting from a zeolite with structure type FAU used as the source of silicon and aluminium and a specific organic molecule or template comprising two quaternary ammonium functions, namely 1,6-bis(methylpiperidinium)hexane dibromide.

  • Patent number: 10872182
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for optimizing a fluid deposit traversed by a fracture network. For this method, the deposit is discretized in a meshed representation, a “dual medium” approach is used, and the exchange flows are determined between the meshes, together with corrective factors. The corrective factors are dependent on the initial pressure and the minimum production pressure of the deposit. The fluid flows in the deposit are simulated by means of these flows and these corrective factors.

  • Patent number: 10873248
    Abstract: The invention relates to a rotary electrical machine (100) with an integral magnetic sensor (101) of the angular position of the rotor (150). The sensor includes a rotary part (108) with magnet (102) fixed to the end (160b) of the rotation shaft (160) at the rear of the machine, facing a fixed part (103) including Hall effect sensors and mounted on a fixed support (106) connected to the frame of the machine. The machine includes a bearing (104) centered on the axis (X), separating the rotary and fixed parts of the sensor. This bearing, fixed to the shaft and to the metal support of the fixed part of the sensor, and preferably in contact with the rotary part, constitutes a new mechanical reference close to the sensor. The invention provides accurate and robust position information independently of mechanical and magnetic disturbances to which the shaft may be subjected.
