  • Patent number: 10990534
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for capturing an image of processor state at one node of multiple nodes of a multi-processor platform, where the processor state includes some version of data which the node retrieved from another node of the platform. In an embodiment, a disruption of power is detected when a processor of a first node has a cached version of data which was retrieved from a second node. In response to detection of the disruption, the data is saved to a system memory of the first node as part of an image of the processor's state. The image further comprises address information, corresponding to the data, which indicates a memory location at the second node. In another embodiment, processor state is restored during a boot-up of the node, wherein the state includes the captured version of data which was previously retrieved from the second node.

  • Patent number: 10393441
    Abstract: A drift eliminator to remove liquid from a flow of air in a cooling tower includes an eliminator inlet, a plurality of flutes, an eliminator ridge, and a plurality of ribs. The eliminator inlet is to receive the flow of air. The plurality of flutes are configured to convey the flow of air through the drift eliminator. The eliminator ridge has a first drift wall extending in a first direction and a second drift wall extending in a second direction. Each flute is in fluid communication with the eliminator ridge and is defined by a flute interior surface curving upwards from the flute inlet to a flute outlet. The plurality of ribs are defined by adjacent ones of the flutes and curving upwards toward the flute outlet.

  • Publication number: 20120279213
    Abstract: A cooling tower system is provided that can exhibit increased energy efficiency that cools a process fluid or the like. The cooling tower system includes a cooling tower unit and a thermoelectric device along with a working fluid loop. The process fluid may be used to heat a working fluid for the thermoelectric device before being sent to the cooling tower for cooling. Power generated by the thermoelectric device may be utilized to operate a component of the cooling tower such as a fan or a pump. The cooling tower is also utilized to provide cooling to condense the working fluid from a vapor to a liquid form wherein the cooling tower is used to remove waste heat from a process fluid.
