  • Publication number: 20190275620
    Abstract: A method comprising the steps of: (a) forming one or more friction materials of a brake pad; and (b) inspecting each of the one or more friction materials with one or more ultrasonic testers while each of the one or more friction materials are within a manufacturing line to determine if each of the one or more friction materials meet one or more desired material properties.

  • Patent number: 10384988
    Abstract: The present invention involves processes and equipment for handling chloride in an ionic liquid alkylation system. The processes involve not only breaking down the organic chloride to active HCl for ionic liquid activation, but also recovering HCl in the effluent downstream to maintain the HCl requirements while also reducing HCl emissions. This equipment may be used in conjunction with an isomerization reaction zone which is integrated into the ionic liquid alkylation process to further isomerize n-paraffins to isoparaffins for recycle to the alkylation reaction zone.

  • Publication number: 20190243419
    Abstract: A tablet case includes a frame, a connector, a swivel, and a hand strap. The frame is configured to retain a tablet computing device and has a front and a rear. The connector is coupled to the frame and protrudes from the rear of the frame. The connector is configured to releasably attach the frame to a docking station. The swivel is rotatable about the connector, and the hand strap is attached to the swivel. The hand strap is moveable between a handheld position and a dock ready position. The hand strap is resiliently biased to the dock ready position. The handheld position is a position in which the hand strap is spaced from the frame such that a user's hand can be inserted, and the dock ready position is a position in which the hand strap does not interfere with docking of the tablet case to a docking station.

  • Publication number: 20190136313
    Abstract: Compositions, methods and systems are provided for the loading of extended polymerase-nucleic acid complexes onto substrates. Primed polymerase-template complex comprising a polymerase enzyme and a circular nucleic acid template comprising a double stranded region connected at each end by a single-stranded hairpin region are provides in which the circular nucleic acid template comprises at least one reversible pause point. Nucleic acid synthesis is carried out such that a nascent strand is synthesized up to the reversible stop point producing an extended polymerase-template complex. The extended polymerase-template complex is then attached to a substrate. Such attached complexes can be used for single molecule sequencing in which the nucleic acid synthesis is re-initiated such that nucleic acid synthesis continues past the reversible stop point.
