  • Publication number: 20200188809
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a method for recovering at least one product from a fermentation broth. The invention relates to the use of a vacuum distillation vessel to recover products, such as ethanol, from a fermentation broth, where the fermentation broth comprises viable microbial biomass, and where the recovery of the product is completed in such a manner to ensure the viability of the microbial biomass. The invention provides for product recovery at an effective rate so as to prevent the accumulation of product in the fermentation broth. To ensure the viability of the microbial biomass, the invention is designed to reduce the amount of stress on the microbial biomass. By ensuring the viability of the microbial biomass, the microbial biomass may be recycled and reused in the fermentation process, which may result in an increased efficiency of the fermentation process.

  • Patent number: 10571212
    Abstract: A process that uses a lodged projectile removal charge (LPRC) apparatus to remove a projectile jammed in a cannon's gun tube. The LPRC is positioned coaxially and offset from the projectile, and the gun tube is filled with water. The charge is detonated producing a shock wave that disintegrates the LPRC apparatus and pressurizes the water. The pressurized water produces a radial hydraulic force against an interior wall of the gun tube, an axial hydraulic force against the projectile pushing the projectile toward the chamber, and produces an opposing expansion of explosive gases that blasts out most of the water in the gun tube. The process is less likely to damage the gun tube. The LPRC may be made using a 3D printer.

  • Patent number: 10574539
    Abstract: A data store may contain data describing systems associated with an enterprise. The data store may contain electronic records, each containing a record identifier and a set of record characteristic values, including a service tier goal. A compliance score may be automatically calculated based on an assessment of record characteristic values, the service tier goal, and at least a system availability value, an incident response time value, and an incident restoration time value. A remediation recommendation may be generated, including steps that, when performed, will result in the selected system meeting the service tier goal. An indication representing the remediation recommendation may then be transmitted in connection with an interactive user interface display.

  • Publication number: 20190332155
    Abstract: An example system includes a server including a power supply and a microcontroller. The power supply may store parameters for a plurality of different ranges of overcurrent and a plurality of corresponding different time periods. The power supply may also receive information from the electrical component corresponding to the speed at which the electrical component can reduce the amount of power the electrical component is consuming. The controller may receive information from the power supply to determine the amount of current that will cause an overcurrent event in the electrical component. The controller may signal the electrical component to reduce the amount of power the electrical component is drawing from the power supply in response to the detected amount of current corresponding to the overcurrent event.

  • Publication number: 20070228219
    Abstract: An in-space spacecraft servicing system (10) includes a servicing spacecraft (22) and a propellant module (24). The servicing spacecraft includes a client servicing system (136), as well as navigation avionics (108) for independent flight operation and a servicing propellant tank (170). The propellant module moves the servicing module from an upper stage drop off location and releases it in proximity to a client spacecraft (16) for a servicing mission. It has a propellant tank (172) with capacity for multiple missions and is used to refill the servicing spacecraft's propellant tanks between missions. Either or both the servicing spacecraft and the propellant module may have navigation avionics. The servicing spacecraft also has a universal docking adaptor (70) for different client spacecraft, and can convert a client spacecraft from non-cooperative to cooperative.
