  • Patent number: 11344852
    Abstract: In one configuration, a hydroponic system for enriching a liquid with gas-bubbles is disclosed. The system may include at least one reservoir configured to temporarily store the gas-bubble enriched liquid. Each of the at least one reservoir may include an associated inlet port and an associated outlet port fluidically coupled with each other via a liquid-flow line. The system includes one or more pumps configured to cause movement of the liquid along the liquid-flow line, a gas supply feeding a gas (in one configuration, oxygen from a gas concentrator), and a gas-bubble generator provided on the liquid-flow line. The gas-bubble generator may be fluidically coupled to the gas supply to receive gas from the gas supply. The gas-bubble generator may be configured to generate a plurality of individual gas-bubbles of the gas received from the gas supply and mix with the liquid stream flowing via the gas-bubble generator.

  • Publication number: 20220080618
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a method of monitoring a flow rate of a liquid additive comprising measuring the flow rate of the liquid additive with a flow meter; transmitting the measurements of the flow rate to a controller; transmitting, from a variable frequency drive (VFD), measurements of a rotational speed of a motor to the controller, wherein the VFD is coupled to the motor; transmitting measurements from a level sensor to the controller; determining whether the flow rate of the liquid additive is a non-zero rate; utilizing the measurements transmitted to the controller as feedback to compare against a designated set point; calculating an error between the feedback and the designated set point to calculate an updated output; and transmitting the updated output to the VFD to change the flow rate of the liquid additive.

  • Publication number: 20200279492
    Abstract: A unified data management system for operating a UAS via an open architecture distributed architecture and use thereof. The system provides for the functional operation of all aspects required for operating a UAS throughout its service life. The system comprises a plurality of modules or individual sub-programs, each of which cooperatively functions with the other modules of the system, such that the system functions as a cooperative whole in the operation of a UAS. The System provides for adaptability to new and yet even unforeseen needs. When such need arises, a module tailored to satisfy such need may be prepared and integrated into the system. Further, in the case where the system is open architecture, third party users may create new modules that may be optionally incorporated into the system. The system allows for simultaneous access and use via a plurality of users in a plurality of remote locations.
