  • Patent number: 10437645
    Abstract: Embodiments facilitate the efficient handling of service requests by a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure. The platform may comprise a central controller communicating with a plurality of execution agents on one or more hosts. The central controller may parse client requests manipulating application state (e.g., scale, start, stop app, clear) into a sequence of fine-grained instance requests (e.g., start, stop, stop all, clear) that are distributed to the application program interfaces (API) of execution agents on the platform. The central controller may assign a priority to the fine-grained requests. The priority may take into consideration one or more factors including but not limited to: request creator (user, system); operation type (start, stop, stop all, clear); instance number; sequence number of the fine grained request within the original received request; hierarchy level (organization, space); and application.

  • Patent number: 10292563
    Abstract: A warewasher has at least one treatment system comprising a jet system (60, 61, 62, 63, 202) with at least one jet for spraying treatment liquid onto the items within at least one treatment zone (32, 33, 201), a fresh water system and a control device (10), wherein the fresh water system has at least one water feed (71), with at least one fresh water inlet (70) for the introduction of fresh water into the at least one treatment zone (32, 33, 201) as well as a controllable capacitive deionization unit (50), wherein the at least one cell (50a, 50b) is designed to be operated in a deionization mode and in at least one further operating mode, wherein the control device (10) is designed to change the operating mode of the at least one cell (50a, 50b) in accordance with at least one operating parameter of the warewasher.

  • Patent number: 9862546
    Abstract: A chain drive for a link chain of mining conveyors or mining extraction machines, in particular for scraper chain conveyors, includes a drive shaft. The drive power or the drive torque is introduced into the link chain by chain tooth elements. The chain tooth elements are set directly in the drive shaft in seats. For that purpose, the chain tooth elements have a lower coupling portion for interlocking engagement in the seats in the drive shaft. Accordingly, a separate chain wheel is unnecessary.

  • Publication number: 20160152415
    Abstract: The invention relates to a chain drive (1) for link chains (2) of mining conveyors or mining extraction machines, in particular for scraper chain conveyors. The chain drive (1) comprises a drive shaft (3). The drive power or the drive torque is delivered to the link chain (2) by sprocket tooth bodies (4). According to the invention, the sprocket tooth bodies (4) are set directly into the drive shaft (3) in seats (6). For that purpose, the sprocket tooth bodies (4) have a lower coupling section (8) for interlocking engagement in the seats (6) in the drive shaft (3). According to the invention, a separate sprocket is no longer necessary.

  • Patent number: 7683144
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process and composition for the chain stopping of vinyl chloride polymerization or copolymerization in the presence of a stable free nitroxyl radical and a phenolic antioxidant. A further subject of the invention is the use of a stable free nitroxyl radical together with a phenolic antioxidant as a chain stopping mixture for the vinyl chloride polymerization or copolymerization. A further aspect of the invention is the use of higher sterically hindered nitroxyl radicals alone as chain stopping agents for the vinyl chloride polymerization.

  • Patent number: 6465702
    Abstract: A process for the feedstock recycling of thermoset materials treats the material with a partially hydrogenated aromatic hydrocarbon at a temperature of from 200 to 350° C. in the presence of an amine. In the case of epoxy resin materials an amine is not needed if processing is carried out at temperatures of from 300 to 350° C.

  • Patent number: 5011972
    Abstract: The new bisesters of unsaturated carboxylic acids corresponding to the following formula ##STR1## may be used in curable polyester resin mixtures which may in turn be used for the production of moldings. The curable mixtures obtainable from the new bisesters of unsaturated carboxylic acids show a higher glass transition temperature than normal polyester resins and, despite a higher crosslink density, show broader-mesh crosslinking.
