  • Publication number: 20210221703
    Abstract: A closed conduit system for use in a water supply system includes a recirculating unit configured to connect to an isolated section between a first point and a second point of the water supply system. The recirculating unit includes a first filter unit defining a first closed circuit including the isolated section and adapted to perform a first treatment. A second filter unit defines a second closed circuit including the isolated section and is adapted to perform a second treatment. At least one pump is capable of generating a flow of water through the first and the second closed circuit, and a valve selectively controls flow through either the first or the second closed circuit.

  • Publication number: 20210088170
    Abstract: A closed conduit system is provided for use in a water supply. The system may include a recirculating unit having a pump and a filter, and first and second pig launch and recovery apparatuses. Each pig launch and recovery apparatus includes a flow tube having a first flow end coupled with the recirculating unit, an opposing second flow end mounted to a hydrant, and a main flow valve. A launch and recovery tube has a first launch end coupled to the flow tube between the first flow end and the main flow valve, and a second launch end fluidly coupled to the flow tube between the main flow valve and the second flow end. An isolated section of the water supply system is defined between the hydrants with the recirculating unit, the pig launch and recovery apparatuses and the isolated section forming a closed circuit.

  • Publication number: 20210087797
    Abstract: A high pressure jetting system includes a recirculating unit connected to an isolated section of a water supply system which remains under system pressure. The recirculating unit includes a filter unit and a pump unit generating a circulating flow of water. A first pig launch and recovery apparatus couples a first hydrant to the recirculating unit and a second pig launch and recovery apparatus couples a second hydrant to the recirculating unit. A camera unit including a camera and drogue chute enters through the first apparatus and travels in a flushing flow direction to the second apparatus. The drogue chute is then removed from the camera. The camera then couples to a jetting unit having a jetting head and hose and re-enters through the second apparatus. The jetting unit emits a plurality of water jets to move in a counter-current flow direction and remove material from the water mains.

  • Patent number: 8832235
    Abstract: A deployed logical server is created by importing specifications, including a first network identity, of a first real server so that the logical server is stored in a logical-server database. The initially deployed logical server is released from the real server, and a second network identity is assigned to the first real server. The logical server is redeployed on a second real server so that it continues to be associated, in the logical-server database, with the first network identity and respective compute, storage, and network requirements.

  • Patent number: 8676946
    Abstract: An administrator selects a representation of a logical server on a display. The logical server is stored in a logical-server database. The logical-server database stores logical-servers and specifies their resource requirements and network identities. The logical servers are deployable to physical and/or virtual real servers. A logical-server manager program responds to the selection by displaying a warning symbol. The administrator interacts with the warning symbol, and the logical-server manager program responds by displaying a message specifying that the real server is unsuitable or impaired as a host for deployment of the logical server.

  • Patent number: 6426629
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for measuring electrical parameters of a test fluid are disclosed. The methods include maintaining the test fluid and a reference fluid at the same temperature and in thermal proximity to each other, equalizing the temperature of the test fluid and the reference fluid prior to the measuring step, measuring the electrical parameter of the test fluid and the reference fluid at substantially the same time, and standardizing the measurement to a predetermined temperature. The apparatus includes a heat exchanger for maintaining the flow of a primary heat exchange fluid in thermal proximity to the test fluid in the reference fluid, and a metal wall having one surface in contact with a measuring cell and another surface in contact with the flow of the primary heat exchange fluid whereby the measuring cell and the heat exchanger are separated thereby.
