  • Patent number: 11131155
    Abstract: Pumping of wellbore fluid to a surface may have a detrimental effect on the pump performance due to high gas concentrations in the fluid. A pump system that utilizes a helix gas separator provides greater pump efficiency by effectively removing the gas phase of the fluid. The wellbore fluid received at a pump system is directed from an intake to a gas separator that utilizes a stationary auger. The stationary auger induces rotational motion of the wellbore fluid causing the wellbore fluid to separate into a gas phase and a liquid phase. The gas phase is directed to the annulus while the liquid phase is directed to the pump for pumping to the surface. As the stationary auger remains stationary during production or separation of the wellbore fluid into a plurality of phase, fewer moving components are required which decreases overall production time while decreasing maintenance or operational costs.

  • Publication number: 20210090073
    Abstract: A method and system for managing payment transactions for a merchant using a computing device coupled to a memory device is described. Each transaction is initiated by a consumer using a payment card. The method includes receiving a registration request from a candidate merchant for enrollment within a manager module wherein the registration request includes registration data associated with the candidate merchant, executing a primary approval process using at least some of the registration data, and transmitting an account request message requesting an opening of a merchant account for the candidate merchant with an acquiring bank upon approval. The method further includes receiving, in real-time, merchant account data associated with the candidate merchant from the acquiring bank upon approval by a secondary approval process wherein the candidate merchant becomes a registered merchant upon the secondary approval.

  • Publication number: 20200394639
    Abstract: A device and method for waveform transmission of transaction card data to a merchant point-of-sale device are provided. The device includes a memory device for storing data, a processor, and a transmitter. The device is programmed to receive transaction card data that mimics data stored within a magnetic stripe associated with a transaction card, convert the transaction card data to a first data file for storage within the memory device, transmit the first data file to the transmitter, and transmit a first waveform from the transmitter to the POS device, wherein the first waveform includes changes in a magnetic field that represent the transaction card data.

  • Publication number: 20190242888
    Abstract: Viruses and other bioagents are of high medical and biodefense concern and their detection at concentrations well below the threshold necessary to cause health hazards continues to be a challenge with respect to sensitivity, specificity, and selectivity. Ideally, assays for accurate and real time detection of viral agents and other bioagents would not necessitate any pre-processing of the analyte, which would make them applicable for example to bodily fluids (blood, sputum) and man-made as well as naturally occurring bodies of water (pools, rivers). We describe herein a robust biosensor that combines the sensitivity of surface acoustic waves (SAW) generated at a frequency of 325 MHz with the specificity provided by antibodies and other ligands for the detection of viral agents.
