  • Publication number: 20150184884
    Abstract: A wall fan includes a control circuit both controlling the wall fan and a temperature control unit comprising a heater, a cooler, or a Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. The control system receives a desired temperature and compares the desired temperature to an outdoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature indicates that drawing outside air into indoor space will drive the indoor air temperature towards the desired temperature, the control system activates the wall fan, and de-energizes the heater, cooler, or HVAC system. When the outdoor temperature indicates that drawing outside air into indoor space will not drive the indoor air temperature towards the desired temperature, the control system de-energizes the wall fan, and energizes the heater, cooler, or HVAC system.

  • Publication number: 20150160110
    Abstract: A process for determining the incompatibility of crude mixtures (heavy, light) is based on the measurement of dynamic viscosity of crude mixtures using an electromagnetic viscometer having a mobile element (piston) move through the fluid to be measured at a constant force.

  • Publication number: 20150160109
    Abstract: Density measurement of mixtures of heavy and light crudes using the vibrating tube densitometer technique determine incompatibility in the crudes mixture containing asphaltenes by determining the incipient point of asphaltenes incompatibility threshold in the mixtures of crudes.

  • Publication number: 20150092816
    Abstract: The invention relates to method for transferring under pressure a fluid extracted from the deposit by means of a sampling vessel (5) wherein the fluid sample is maintained at the reservoir pressure or extraction pressure, as well as to the method for determining at least one thermodynamic characteristic of this fluid, particularly a method for determining phase transition envelops. The invention also refers to a method combining the implementation of the scanning transitiometry with spectroscopic or analytical techniques, eventually in the presence of a fluid in a supercritical state. The invention similarly refers to a device for implementation of the above-referred methods.

  • Patent number: 8345099
    Abstract: A railroad track inspection system and method for facilitating inspection of a rail component while traveling on the railroad track. The railroad track inspection system includes an optical path protection device for a protective window for optical sensors of an optical inspection system when it becomes contaminated with dirt, dust, mud, grease, and other contaminants that block or obscure an optical path of the sensors. The optical path protection device eliminates the need for a human operator to perform the periodic cleaning of the protective window by using a clear film with an automated advancement mechanism for providing clean film, as needed, for keeping the optical path of the optical sensors unobstructed and clear.
