  • Patent number: 11543180
    Abstract: A process and an apparatus are disclosed for a compact processing assembly to improve the recovery of C2 (or C3) and heavier hydrocarbon components from a hydrocarbon gas stream. The preferred method of separating a hydrocarbon gas stream generally includes producing at least a substantially condensed first stream and a cooled second stream, expanding both streams to lower pressure, and supplying the streams to a fractionation tower. In the process and apparatus disclosed, the tower overhead vapor is directed to an absorbing means and a heat and mass transfer means inside a processing assembly. A portion of the outlet vapor from the processing assembly is compressed to higher pressure, cooled and substantially condensed in a heat exchange means inside the processing assembly, then expanded to lower pressure and supplied to the heat and mass transfer means to provide cooling. Condensed liquid from the absorbing means is fed to the tower.

  • Publication number: 20220416095
    Abstract: An electrical device includes a substrate, a dielectric layer supported by the substrate, and an electrically conductive vertical interconnect extending through the dielectric layer. The dielectric layer may be formed at low-temperature below the thermal degradation temperature of thermally-sensitive material in the device. The dielectric layer may be a low-stress layer that imparts no stress or less stress than a failure stress of fragile material in the device. The dielectric layer may be formed during a processing step to planarize the electrical device at that step. The vertical interconnect may be diffusion bondable with another opposing interconnect at a low-temperature below the thermal degradation temperature of thermally-sensitive material in the device. The vertical interconnect may have a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) that is greater than a CTE of the dielectric layer to facilitate 3D-integration.

  • Publication number: 20220391538
    Abstract: A rule-based attribution mechanism analyzes documents having different types of data in different formats through the application of script-based rules that apply a tag to the document identifying the type of sensitive data that is contained in the document. Documents having similar tags are aggregated so that the sensitive data is scrubbed from the document leaving the telemetric data available for downstream processing. The scrubbing entails different actions, such as, eliminating the sensitive data, obfuscating the sensitive data, and converting the sensitive data into a non-sensitive value.

  • Patent number: 11504037
    Abstract: Systems and methods for assessing fluids from a patient are disclosed. The system includes a receptacle including an inlet port, an outlet port, and a third port; a valve system in fluidic communication with the receptacle; and one or more features in the receptacle to aid in optical imaging of fluids. The system has a fill mode and a flush mode. In the fill mode, the valve system directs suction from a vacuum source through the third port into the receptacle, thereby drawing fluid through the inlet port into the receptacle. In the flush mode, the valve system directs suction from the vacuum source through the outlet port, thereby drawing fluid through the outlet port out of the receptacle. Fluid-related information such as, for example, concentration of a blood component, may be estimated based on images of fluids in the receptacle.
