  • Publication number: 20190166832
    Abstract: Methods and systems for temperature-controlled, on-site generation of peracids, namely peroxycarboxylic acids and peroxycarboxylic acid forming compositions are disclosed. In particular, methods for using an adjustable biocide formulator or generator system overcome the limitations of temperature on the kinetics of the peracid generation and/or peracid decomposition inside an adjustable biocide formulator or generator system. The methods include the controlling of the temperature of at least one raw starting material, namely water, to improve upon methods of on-site generation of peracids. The methods allow for the generation of user-selected chemistry without regard to the ambient temperatures of the raw starting materials and/or the biocide formulator or generator system.

  • Patent number: 10285401
    Abstract: Self-indicating chemistries are provided for visual detection by a user of efficacious levels of peroxycarboxylic acid concentrations in a solution produced in situ. The self-indicating chemistries include a combination of dyes providing a visual color indication, such as a tri-color indicator system, such as a yellow, green, and red color system indicating in situ threshold levels of peroxycarboxylic acid concentrations in a solution employing the self-indicating chemistry. Systems, kits and compositions for a quantitative assessment of an in situ perhydrolysis reaction to generate peroxycarboxylic acids are provided. Methods of use are further provided.

  • Patent number: 10045218
    Abstract: In one example, a method includes receiving a feature vector that characterizes a call history for a telephone network subscriber, wherein the feature vector comprises respective categorical values for one or more categorical features and respective continuous values for one or more continuous features, and applying, to the categorical values, a first algorithm to determine a categorical score for the feature vector. The example method further includes applying, to the continuous values, an isolation forest algorithm to determine a continuous score for the feature vector, and outputting, in response to determining at least one of the categorical score for the feature vector and the continuous score for the feature vector indicate the feature vector is anomalous, an indication that the feature vector is anomalous.

  • Publication number: 20180165365
    Abstract: According to a first aspect of the present disclosure, a method of cataloging youth sports is provided that includes: collecting youth sports data, which collecting includes automated electronic searching of the Internet for the youth sports data, and storing the collected youth sports data in at least one data storage device; classifying the collected youth sports data, which classifying includes filtering and analyzing the collected data, and populating portions of the collected data into one or more predetermined candidate profiles; evaluating the one or more candidate profiles relative to a threshold, wherein each of the one or more candidate profiles that satisfy the threshold are identified as a validated profile; and publishing the one or more validated profiles in a web-based application accessible over the Internet.

  • Patent number: 8214113
    Abstract: A retarding system for a mobile machine is disclosed. The machine may have a power source and a traction device driven by the power source. The retarding system may have a speed sensor configured to generate a speed signal indicative of a speed of the machine. Additionally, the retarding system may have a service brake configured to retard motion of the traction device. The retarding system may also have an engine brake configured to retard motion of the power source. In addition, the retarding system may have a controller in communication with the speed sensor, the service brake, and the engine brake. The controller may be configured to substantially concurrently retard motion of the traction device based on the speed signal and retard motion of the power source based on the speed signal.

  • Patent number: 7988593
    Abstract: The control system may have an electric motor and a traction device connected to an output of the motor. The control system may also have a decelerator and a controller. The controller may be in communication with the motor and the decelerator. The controller may be configured to determine a creep torque and apply the creep torque to the traction device when the decelerator is actuated.

  • Publication number: 20050210313
    Abstract: A system (10) for cataloging and detecting network faults, includes a communication interface (12) for receiving a fault message from a network. A parser (14) is connected to the communication interface (12). The parser (14) parses the fault message for an event type. An associative database (16) is connected to the parser (14) and stores a tally for the fault message.

  • Patent number: 6711838
    Abstract: A method is provided for determining the location of a work machine at a work site, where the work machine includes a house, a boom connected to the house, a stick connected to the boom, and a work implement connected to the house. Reference signals are received from an external reference source. The position of a point on the house is determined in response to the received signals. Information about the work machine is determined based on the position of the point on the house. The status of center-of-rotation (COR) information is updated. The system determines if an event has occurred. If an event is determined to have occurred, event reactions occur.
