  • Publication number: 20210321534
    Abstract: Heat sink and heat sink arrangements are provided for an electronic device immersed in a liquid coolant. A heat sink may comprise: a base for mounting on top of a heat-transmitting surface of the electronic device and transferring heat from the heat-transmitting surface; and a retaining wall extending from the base and defining a volume. A heat sink may have a wall arrangement to define a volume, in which the electronic device is mounted. A heat sink may be for an electronic device to be mounted on a surface in a container, in an orientation that is substantially perpendicular to a floor of the container. Heat is transferred from the electronic device to liquid coolant held in the heat sink volume. A cooling module comprising a heat sink is also provided. A nozzle arrangement may direct liquid coolant to a base of the heat sink.

  • Patent number: 11143350
    Abstract: A wrapped heating assembly may be wrapped around a tubular member for heating the tubular member. The wrapped heating assembly includes an outer insulation sleeve and a pocketed heating system that is fixed to an inner surface of the outer insulation sleeve in a manner that forms longitudinal pockets that extend between a first end of the outer insulation sleeve and a second end of the outer insulation sleeve. One or more heater strips are each respectively inserted longitudinally into a corresponding one of the pockets, wherein heat is generated by the heater strips when electrical current flows through the heater strips for heating the tubular member in a wrapped position. Multiple wrapped heating assemblies may be daisy chained together by electrical connectors into a heating system with a single thermostat and linked to a single power source to accommodate a wide range of configurations of tubular member systems.

  • Publication number: 20210037905
    Abstract: A protective helmet adapted to receive and protect the head of a wearer includes an outer shell and an attachment ring removably secured to the outer shell, such that the attachment ring can be selectively attached to or detached and removed from the outer shell. The outer shell is shaped to protect the head of the wearer of the protective helmet and defines a bottom opening and an internal cavity for receiving the head of the wearer. The attachment ring acts as a point of attachment for, and thus secures, one or more components of the protective helmet configured to engage the head of the wearer, such that the components secured to the attachment ring are transported with the attachment ring when the attachment ring is detached and removed from the outer shell.

  • Publication number: 20200364553
    Abstract: Some embodiments are directed to a neural network training device for training a neural network. At least one layer of the neural network layers is a projection layer. The projection layer projects a layer input vector (x) of the projection layer to a layer output vector (y). The output vector (y) sums to the summing parameter (k).

  • Patent number: 10827244
    Abstract: An adapter for connecting a breathing tube to a headpiece includes: a housing including a first portion configured to connect to a breathing tube, a second portion configured to connect to a headpiece, and a hollow cavity extending through the first portion and the second portion to define a flow path for breathable air received from the breathing tube to travel through the adapter for delivery to the headpiece; and a speaker configured to emit an audible sound into the flow path. The speaker is positioned within the housing so that, when the adapter is connected to a breathing tube and a headpiece of a respirator system, the speaker is in close proximity to the headpiece to help ensure sound emitted from the speaker is audible to a user wearing the headpiece. The speaker is also positioned outside of the flow path to prevent air flow obstruction within the adapter.

  • Patent number: 10787963
    Abstract: A power generation system burns a fuel in a gas in a combustion chamber, producing one or more combustion products and heating a working fluid, preferably supercritical CO2, that is chemically the same as a combustion product. The working fluid is mixed with the combustion products to form a combustion output mixture which is used in a turbine to drive a shaft of the turbine connected with a generator, producing electricity. The turbine outputs an exhaust that goes to a working fluid recycling system that connects the turbine outlet with the combustion chamber. The fluid recycling system has a radial compressor that receives and pressurizes the exhaust mixture and sends it to a chamber that has a bleed outlet and a recycling outlet.

  • Publication number: 20180288906
    Abstract: A cooling system for cooling of a heat generating electrical component, in particular to reduce the likelihood of overheating of electrical components or chemical breakdown of coolant fluid. The cooling system has a coolant liquid to absorb excess energy from the heat generating electrical component, the coolant liquid having an energy input threshold above which chemical breakdown of the coolant liquid occurs. A cooling module defines a volume containing the coolant liquid, wherein the heat generating electrical component is mounted within the volume and immersed in the coolant liquid. A power input is arranged to supply power into the cooling module to the heat generating electrical component, and a power regulator is provided external to the volume of the cooling module and connected to the power input so as to regulate the power supplied into the cooling module.

  • Publication number: 20170009926
    Abstract: A heated hose assembly (10) includes a tubular member (12), a heater device (14) having an electrical resistance element (18) in thermal communication with the tubular member (12), and a thermal regulating device (30) that controls a flow of electrical current through the heater device (14) based on a sensed temperature of the hose assembly (10). Heat generated by the heater device (14) when the electrical current flows through the resistance element (18) heats the tubular member (12) to prevent or minimize condensation of gases, or coagulation or freezing of liquids, within the tubular member (12) at relatively low ambient temperatures.

  • Publication number: 20160174630
    Abstract: A brace for a part of a body includes a first conductive fiber associated with a first polarity, and a second conductive fiber associated with a second polarity different from the first polarity. The second fiber is woven together with the first fiber and insulated from the first fiber. The brace also includes a selectively electrically activated cross-linking agent between the first and second fibers. The agent is constructed to cross-link in a first active mode when the first and second fibers are electrified and is constructed to not cross-link in a second inactive mode when the first and second fibers are not electrified. The brace surrounds a body part, such as a knee or neck. The agent can include an ER fluid and/or EAP. A brace system includes a selectively electrically activated brace for the part of the body.
