  • Publication number: 20200078722
    Abstract: The present invention pertains to a radial flow adsorption vessel comprising a cylindrical outer shell and at least one cylindrical porous wall disposed co-axially inside the shell, wherein inside the shell one or more fluid permeable screens are rigidly connected to the at least one cylindrical porous wall, by a multitude of separate standoff elements so that the screen has a cylindrical shape co-axial to the shell, and to an adsorption process using the radial flow adsorption vessel.

  • Patent number: 10466095
    Abstract: A fixture includes a shelf upon which items may be placed. In one implementation, the shelf is supported by four load cells that provide load cell data that may be used to calculate weight data for the load on the shelf. The load cells are mounted underneath a frame, with an upper portion of a load mount extending upward through the frame and engaged to the shelf. The shelf and the frame include stiffeners to increase rigidity, improving the quality of the load cell data. Electronics and a wiring harness are located underneath the frame. In this configuration, assembly of the fixture may be accomplished completely from the underside, simplifying assembly.

  • Patent number: 9579628
    Abstract: An adsorption vessel comprising a packed bed region of adsorbent particles contiguously arranged, comprising a perforated adsorbent particles, a gas separation process using the perforated adsorbent particles, and methods for making the perforated adsorbent particles. The perforated adsorbent particles each comprise an adsorbent material where the perforated adsorbent particles each have at least 10 channels extending through the particle. The equivalent diameter of the channels may range from 0.05 mm to 1.5 mm, and the void fraction of the channels may range from 0.05 to 0.5.
