  • Patent number: 11470867
    Abstract: A grain-popping machine and associated pod-based popping method is disclosed. The grain-popping is configured to receive a pod. Each pod includes a plurality of cells, with each cell preferably containing a single grain kernel or seed, flavoring, and a cooking medium such as oil or shortening. In a preferred embodiment, the pod is loaded into the grain-popping machine through a slot so that it is held in position adjacent to a heating element. The heating element is activated to begin a popping sequence. When each grain kernel or seed in the pod reaches popping temperature, it absorbs the flavoring in its cell and ejects through the bottom of the pod, which can be weakened to ease ejection, into a bowl positioned in a receiving area of the grain-popping machine. The pod is then removed and disposed of.

  • Publication number: 20220244423
    Abstract: Systems and methods include a computer-implemented method: Seismic data is gathered for a reservoir with unknown fractured and unfractured areas. A structural model is generated. A geomechanical model is built. Geomechanically-estimated fractured areas are determined using the geomechanical model, including: areas where fractures are not likely to exist based on a likelihood lower than a first threshold likelihood, areas where fractures are likely to exist based on a likelihood greater than a second threshold likelihood, and areas where fracturing is unknown based on a likelihood between the first threshold likelihood and the second threshold likelihood. Machine learning-based estimates of a likelihood of a fracture of each area of the reservoir are determined using machine learning based on mathematical calculations of the seismic data.

  • Patent number: 11371466
    Abstract: A piston for an internal combustion engine includes a plurality of valve pockets formed in a piston rim, the valve pockets forming fluid flow paths through the piston rim. Each of the valve pockets includes a central step standing proud of a pocket floor to limit a fluid flow area through the pocket and slow combustion gas flow from a combustion bowl toward a cylinder liner and thereby reduce displacement of an engine oil film thereon.

  • Patent number: 10925474
    Abstract: The present disclosure is a device and method associated with the delivery of medical devices in the pericardial space using a minimally invasive approach with direct visualization. More specifically, the device can be used to deliver permanent pacing, defibrillation and cardiac resynchronization leads, as well as leadless pacemakers for cardiac rhythm management to the epicardial surface of the heart. A subxiphoid procedure is proposed as a minimally invasive alternative to thoracotomy, while the delivery tool incorporates a camera for direct visualization of the procedure. The tool also incorporates a steerable catheter to provide selective control of the placement and orientation of the medical device in the pericardial space.

  • Publication number: 20210001086
    Abstract: The present disclosure is related to a device for gripping catheters that are used in interventional cardiac procedures without causing internal catheter damage. The present disclosure will allow the operator to maintain improved stability and maneuverability compared with current approaches, including, primarily, digital manipulation, which can lead to fatigue, instability and inappropriate catheter movement. Specifically in the pediatric population where small movements can lead to severe and permanent complications, the present disclosure has the potential to increase the safety profile of already high-risk interventional catheterization and electrophysiology procedures.

  • Publication number: 20190240416
    Abstract: A syringe containing a high water content product and for use in a drug infusion system is provided. The syringe includes a plunger carrying front and rear o-rings made of a diene rubber compound such as chlorobutyl rubber or bromobutyl rubber to impart very low gas permeability characteristics to the o-rings. The plunger may be molded as a single part or in two parts. If molded as one part with radially-engaging mold portions, the seal glands in the plunger may include parting lines from the mold. If molded as two parts with axially-engaging mold portions, the front seal gland may include a sealing surface and under cut that has no parting line. The orings may be surface treated with a lubricant to improve sealing where the molding process gives rise to parting lines in the seal glands.
