  • Publication number: 20220146297
    Abstract: A multifunctional dust trap for reducing an acoustic noise and dust filtering comprising: an inlet connected to a gas inlet of a gas meter; a chamber, connected to the inlet, to receive a flow of a gas, comprises: a first wall to deflect the flow of the gas in a first direction, wherein the first wall directs the flow of the gas into a cross sectional area of the chamber, which reduces a velocity of the deflected gas such that a centrifugal force guides a plurality of dust particles towards a base of the chamber; and a second wall to deflect the flow of the gas in a second direction; and an outlet, attached to the chamber, to enable an exit of a clean flow of the gas away from one or more flow inlets of a flow tube installed within the gas meter.

  • Patent number: 10988602
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of testing silanization, which permits inline control of the in situ silanization of light-colored fillers, especially precipitated silicas. This enables continuous in situ silanization in the production of rubber mixtures comprising silanized light-colored fillers, and representative control of the rubber mixture under production conditions. The process is additionally nondestructive and has a high tolerance for carbon black as an additional constituent of the rubber mixture.

  • Patent number: 10890521
    Abstract: For tracking a plurality of objects in a three-dimensional space two-dimensional pictures objects are recorded with two black and white cameras out of two different imaging directions. Both first pictures and second pictures of the two cameras are simultaneously exposed at two points in time in equal ways, a point in time at which the second pictures are exposed for a first time following to a point in time at which the first pictures are exposed for a last time at a much shorter interval than the two points in time of exposure of both the first and second pictures. First and second distributions of real positions of the individual objects are determined from their images in the first and second pictures, respectively; and temporally resolved trajectories of the individual objects in the three-dimensional space are determined from the first and second distributions of real positions.

  • Publication number: 20180068397
    Abstract: A system for controlling prepaid delivery of utilities includes a utility meter with a cutoff device for enabling or disabling delivery of a utility; and a server connected to the utility meter via a network. The utility meter receives a usage limit from the server, measures usage of the utility by the load, and when the usage limit is exceeded, activates the cutoff device. The utility meter transmits the measured usage to the server at configurable intervals. The server maintains an account balance associated with the load, receives the measured usage from the utility meter, and decrements the account balance based on the measured usage. When the account balance is exhausted, the server sends a command to activate the cutoff device to the utility meter. Otherwise, the server generates a further usage limit based on the account balance, and sends the further usage limit to the utility meter.

  • Patent number: 9733267
    Abstract: For determining a changing spatial distribution of particles at each of multiple points in time, real two-dimensional images of the particles are recorded with different mapping functions. An estimated spatial distribution of the particles is provided. Virtual two-dimensional images of the estimated spatial distribution are calculated applying the different mapping functions. Differences between the virtual and the real two-dimensional images are determined; and the estimated spatial distribution of the particles are varied for reducing the differences to obtain a spatial distribution approximated to the actual spatial distribution of the particles. The estimated spatial distribution of the particles is provided in that the locations of the individual particles in a spatial distribution approximated for one other point in time are shifted dependently on how the locations of the individual particles have changed between at least two spatial distributions approximated for at least two other points in time.

  • Patent number: 8846816
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process and an apparatus for the preparation of a crosslinkable rubber mixture for vehicle tires, lines, drive belts and other industrial rubber articles, which can be carried out at least semicontinuously. The present invention is based on the discovery that the experiments known from the prior art to carry out the batchwise process usually used at least partly continuously have failed in particular because of the problem that the crosslinking agents have to be mixed rapidly and homogeneously with the base mixture, also referred to as rubber base mixture, without the mixture consisting of the base mixture and the crosslinking agents heating up too strongly. According to the invention, attention was therefore focussed on reliably mixing the base mixture homogeneously with the crosslinking agents and minimizing the mixing time. A first measure for achieving the desired aim consists in first mixing the crosslinking agents with one another before they are mixed with the base mixture.

  • Patent number: 8528858
    Abstract: For reducing a circulation of wake vortexes in a wake turbulence behind an airplane flying over ground at low altitude, at least one ring vortex of airflow is generated at the ground on each side of a vertical middle plane of the airplane. Each ring vortex has a vortex axis and a direction of propagation, wherein the vortex axis is oriented at an angle with regard to the ground, and wherein the propagation direction is oriented upwards from the ground; and each ring vortex disturbs at least one wake vortex to induce its decay.
