  • Publication number: 20200151175
    Abstract: A system and method for data organization, optimization and analytics includes a web server, thrift server, distributed processing framework, key value store, distributed file system, and relational database. The web server provides a method whereby users issue control actions and query for records via interaction with the thrift server. The thrift server is the center of coordination and communication for the system and interacts with other system elements. The key value store organizes all of the operational data for the system. The key value store runs on a highly scalable distributed system, including a distributed file system for storage of data on disk. The distributed processing framework enables data to be processed in bulk and is used to execute analytical processing on the data. The relational database holds all of the administrative data in the system. Search queries are submitted by end user and results of the search query are sent from the web server to the end user.

  • Patent number: 10611989
    Abstract: A method of treating an beverage, comprising exposing a beverage to an ion exchange matrix that includes a mixture of cation exchange beads and anion exchange beads each capable of binding to one or more cationic or anionic constituents present in the beverage and thereby reduce concentrations of the one or more cationic or anionic constituents in the beverage and capable of maintaining a pH of the beverage within ±0.5 pH units of the beverage's pretreatment pH value. The cationic or anionic constituents have a noxious effect on humans and the cation exchange beads include a cationic mineral form and the anion exchange beads include a chloride mineral form.

  • Patent number: 10111974
    Abstract: A system and method for on-site remediation and sanitization of household items preferably uses a HEPA vacuum to remove surface microbials from the item being remediated. The item is then placed into a sealable plastic vacuum bag having a connection port that allows a vacuum to remove air from the bag, collapsing the bag over the item (which has first been braced to the extent necessary to prevent damage to the item). Once the air has been extracted from the vacuum bag air is introduced into the bag, preferably by using a blower, whereby a fogger can be used to introduce a remediating fog into the bag with the remediating fog surrounding the item. Next, the vacuum is used to again collapse the bag around the item, thereby infusing the remediating fog into the item. In a preferred embodiment of the invention the steps of inflating, fogging, and collapsing may be repeated one or more times to thoroughly infuse the remediating solution into the item, after which the item is removed from the vacuum bag.

  • Publication number: 20150153588
    Abstract: A surface patterned contact lens is composed of a silicon hydrogel and has one or more surface regions that are patterned with nano-scale roughness features, micro-wells, micro-protrusions, and/or micro-channels. The micro-wells, micro-protrusions, and/or micro-channels have depths and heights that are on nanometer dimensions. The nano-scale roughness features have dimensions less than 200 nm in width, depth or height. The surface patterns do not diffract light and do not inhibit the clarity that can be detected by the eye. A method of preparing the surface patterned contact lens involves molding, where a complementary negative of the surface patterned contact lens is displayed by the mold.

  • Publication number: 20110061869
    Abstract: Producing transverse fractures in a horizontal well may be achieved at a relatively lower fracturing pressure by forming one or more tunnels extending from the horizontal wellbore. One or more tunnels may be formed at each location along the horizontal wellbore where a transverse fracture is desired. The tunnel(s) may be formed mechanically, optically, or hydraulically. Further, fracturing may be formed at a lower pressure than would otherwise be required to form transverse fractures from a horizontal wellbore. According to some implementations, the transverse fractures may be formed without isolating a portion of the horizontal wellbore.

  • Patent number: 7549320
    Abstract: A cement sample testing apparatus including a first pressure zone; a second pressure zone; and a pressure control system. The pressure control system can be in fluid communication with the first pressure zone and the second pressure zone, operable to raise the first pressure zone to a first pressure above ambient pressure, and operable to raise the second pressure zone to a second pressure above ambient pressure. A method for determining mechanical properties for a sample cement composition can include applying a first pressure condition to a first portion of the sample cement composition; applying a second pressure condition raised to a second portion of the sample cement composition; and determining one or more mechanical properties of the sample cement composition based at least in part on the pressure conditions present at the failure of the sample cement composition.

  • Patent number: 7530396
    Abstract: A method of servicing a wellbore comprising placing a cement composition comprising a cementitious material, water, and an elastomeric material comprising a bonding polar group into a wellbore, and allowing the cement composition to set to form a set cement, wherein the elastomeric material has a phase transition temperature, exhibits cold flow behavior, or both at less than or equal to the bottom hole static temperature of the wellbore. A method of servicing a cased wellbore penetrating a formation, comprising introducing a self-repairing cementitious material into a wellbore, and allowing the cement to set, wherein upon a loss of structural integrity the set cement self-repairs, and wherein the loss of structural integrity comprises the formation of flow pathways for fluid migration in the cement and self-repair comprises obstructing potential pathways for fluid migration.
