  • Publication number: 20230191333
    Abstract: A spiral wound membrane module is suitable for use with high temperature water that may also have a high pH, for example steam injection produced water. The module uses a membrane with a polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) backing material. The feed spacer of the module may be made from polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) or ethylene chlorotrifluoroethylene (ECTFE). The permeate carrier may be made of a woven nylon (i.e. nylon 6, 6) fabric coated with high temperature epoxy. The core tube and anti-telescoping device may be made of polysulfone. In some examples, the module may be used at a temperature of up to 130° C. Optionally, the module may be used at a pH of 9.5 or more. In a filtration method, the module may be operated at a pressure in the range of 150 to 450 psi. The module may be operated at a generally constant pressure.

  • Publication number: 20230176773
    Abstract: A system, method, and machine-readable storage medium for determining an amount of unique data in a distributed storage system are provided. In some embodiments, a combined efficiency set for a first data set stored in the distributed storage system, such as at a volume, may be generated. The first data set may include a first subset of data and a second subset of data in the distributed storage system. Additionally, a set of efficiency sets for the first subset of data may be generated. A set difference based on the combined efficiency set and the set of efficiency sets may be computed. An amount of memory used for storing unique data of the second subset of data may be estimated based on the set difference. The unique data may be present in the second subset of data but absent from the first subset of data.

  • Publication number: 20230145784
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for a streamlined garbage collection process during which data integrity checking is also performed for a distributed key-value (KV) store utilized by a distributed storage management system. According to one embodiment, by making use of full or truncated block IDs (rather than an intermediate probabilistic data structure, such as a Bloom filter) for garbage collection, data integrity checking can be performed concurrently almost for free. During garbage collection, a block ID compare list is compared to block IDs within the distributed KV store. If a particular block ID is present in the distributed KV store but is missing from the block ID compare list, the corresponding data block represents garbage to be collected. If the particular block ID is present in the block ID compare list but missing from the distributed KV store, a data integrity error has been identified.

  • Publication number: 20200298135
    Abstract: A model train track is provided that includes a plurality of track segments. Each track segment may include a roadbed, a plurality of rails, and a plurality of magnetic devices that are used to physically connect a track segment with an adjacent track segment. In other words, as two track segments move close to one another, the attraction between the magnetic devices on the two segments will not only pull the segments together, but, once connected, will maintain a physical connection therebetween until sufficient force is applied to overcome the magnetic attraction. Each track segment may also include at least one alignment portion, for aligning adjacent track segments during user assembly, and a plurality of contacts (e.g., biased or spring-loaded contacts) providing electrical continuity between adjacent track segments and components thereof (e.g., rails).
