  • Publication number: 20230381895
    Abstract: Apparatus for assembling a pipe-in-pipe pipeline comprises a primary support system, such as an array of rollers, for supporting an outer pipe section and a secondary support system, such as a set of rails, for supporting an inner pipe section. The primary support system supports the outer pipe section centred on a longitudinal axis in common with a trailing end of a partially-completed pipeline. The secondary support system is deployed to support the inner pipe section also centred on that common axis, enabling the inner pipe section to be advanced and welded to an inner pipe of the partially-completed pipeline. The secondary support system is then retracted to advance the outer pipe section, supported by the primary support system, around the inner pipe section. This enables the outer pipe section to be welded to an outer pipe of the partially-completed pipeline.

  • Publication number: 20220213711
    Abstract: A movable platform storage device for off-floor storage including a substantially vertical support member (column) anchored to a concrete floor that defines the deployment axis. The movable platform is connected to the vertical support member (column) and can be raised or lowered to one of any plurality of positions oriented generally transversely to the deployment axis by means of an electric servo-motor power unit and wire cable lifting system. The column is available in different lengths to accommodate ceiling height limitations and desired raised platform heights. The platform storage device can be used as a single stand-alone unit or multiple storage units can be combined in a configuration that creates a unique electric/mechanical powered elevated mezzanine system with increase elevated storage area. The servo motor electric/mechanical wireless power system on each of the combined storage lifts can be programmed identically so that all platforms will raise and lower simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 11287900
    Abstract: This disclosure describes operations for operating a touch-sensitive keypad. The operations include: detecting, during a normal operating mode of the keypad, activation of one or more keys of the keypad, the normal operating mode causing the keypad to register a value corresponding to a given key when the given key is activated for a first amount of time; determining that the activation of the keys of the keypad satisfies a visual impaired mode criterion; in response to determining that the activation of the keys of the keypad satisfies the visual impaired mode criterion, transitioning the operating mode of the keypad from the normal operating mode to a visual impaired mode; and registering, during the visual impaired mode, the value corresponding to the given key in response to determining that the given key has been activated for a second amount of time that is longer than the first amount of time.

  • Publication number: 20220079939
    Abstract: Described is a composition comprising (a) a population of particles of an aripiprazole prodrug having a volume based particle size (Dv50) of less than 1000 nm and (b) at least one surface stabilizer comprising an adsorbed component which is adsorbed on the surface of the aripiprazole prodrug particles and a free component available for solubilisation of the aripiprazole prodrug. The surface stabilizer to prodrug ratio provides the optimal quantity of free surface stabilizer for the purposes of producing a lead-in formulation. Also described are methods of treatment using the aforementioned composition.

  • Patent number: 10213928
    Abstract: A combination tool that at one end has a knife and at the other end has a three pronged fork. The two sides are separated by a bridge with a loop attached thereto. One side of the tool has a thin hollow sheath that covers the side when not in use whereas the opposing side has a removable, locking handle that covers it when not in use. Both the sheath and the removable, locking handle are wrapped in paracord for use when deploying the tool and for having paracord at hand. A specialized, removable cleat is attachable and removable from the tool that provides notches that are also found on the top edge of the knife end and the top and bottom prongs of the fork end and also to provide a blunt surface that prevents the paracord from being cut when wrapped around the knife blade.
