  • Publication number: 20240181750
    Abstract: Provided herein are an aluminum can end stock (CES) and methods for producing CES. The CES includes a laminated metal strip having a polymer film coating and beneficially exhibiting low feathering, low hairing, and high abrasion resistance. The laminated metal strip can include the laminated polymer coating on an exterior-facing side and a lacquered coating on an interior-facing side. The CES is formed by laminating a polymer film to a side of the metal strip and annealing the laminated metal strip. In some cases, the polymer film laminated to the metal strip is a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film, which may be colored.

  • Patent number: 11920971
    Abstract: A static gas flowmeter for sensing a flow of gas includes an outer housing, a flow tube coupled to an outlet or an inlet, ?1 sensor positioned for sensing gas flowing through the flow tube, and a controller including a memory including a flow calibration and flow measurement algorithm coupled to a sensor receiving a sensing signal. An integrated gas valve is connected to the inlet or outlet and/or there is an additional external valve positioned outside the housing coupled to the inlet to provide the gas flowmeter at least two state operation. Using the valve(s), the flow calibration algorithm triggers a zero-flow condition, then obtains a measured gas flow, and from the measured gas flow a flow offset is determined. If the flow offset is outside a predetermined limit, in-line calibrating is performed by adding the flow offset reflected as a correction factor to the flow measurement algorithm.

  • Patent number: 11822371
    Abstract: A term base can be used to index a raw medical term (e.g., a text string from an electronic health record) to generate a computational expression of the raw medical term. The computational expression of the raw medical term can be used to generate a uniform medical term for the raw medical term. The computational expression can be compared with other computational expressions to organize the electronic health record, filter the electronic health record, and provide a uniform presentation of raw medical terms from different events in the electronic health record.

  • Publication number: 20230289387
    Abstract: A user device can be used to generate medical term expressions, which represent medical terms of a health record. The user device can identify a medical concept present in the health record based on a medical term expression. The user device can generate a node in a personalized relational graph that corresponds to the medical concept. One or more sub-nodes can be added to the node. Responsive to a request, a user interface is presented that identifies the medical concept and some of the additional information.

  • Patent number: 11653324
    Abstract: A location control subsystem is provided that allows a user of an electronic device to define the granularity used to provide location coarseness. A user can define a coarse location granularity for an application. When a coarse device location is reported to an application, the location can be provided with at least a minimum degree of variable specificity based on the selected location coarseness. When an application is granted a coarse location, the application is to interpret the provided location indicating that the user may be anywhere within a geographic region of variable specificity, as opposed to being close to a center point with a horizontal accuracy based on the precision of the location fix, as when a fine granularity location is provided. In addition to reducing the spatial resolution of the location that is reported to the application, the temporal resolution may also be reduced.
