  • Publication number: 20200307896
    Abstract: Thermally insulated shipping system for use in transporting a pallet-sized payload. In one embodiment, the system includes a plurality of thermally insulating walls arranged to define an interior volume suitable for receiving a pallet-sized payload. The thermally insulating walls include a top wall, a bottom wall, a front wall, a rear wall, a left wall, and a right wall, of which all but the bottom wall include at least two slots facing towards the interior volume. One of the slots is an inner slot that is more proximal to the interior volume, and one of the slots is an outer slot that is more distal to the interior volume. The system also includes a plurality of inner cassettes disposed in at least some of the inner slots and a plurality of outer cassettes disposed in at least some of the outer slots. The inner and outer cassettes include phase-change materials.

  • Publication number: 20200108131
    Abstract: The present invention includes the complete genome sequence for the methanogen, Methanobrevibacter ruminan-tium, including polynucleotides which encode M. ruminantium polypeptides or peptides, as well as polynucleotides from non-coding regions. Also included are the encoded M. ruminantium polypeptides and peptides, and antibodies directed to these peptides or polypeptides, in addition to expression vectors and host cells for producing these peptides, polypeptides, polynucleotides, and antibodies. The invention further includes methods and compositions for detecting, targeting, and inhibiting microbial cells, especially methanogen cells such as M. ruminantium cells, using one or more of the disclosed peptides, polypeptides, polynu-cleotides, antibodies, expression vectors, and host cells.

  • Publication number: 20190368946
    Abstract: A method for the monitoring and control of the operating conditions of a fiber web machine or paper finishing machine, where the monitoring and control are performed on a rotatable machine element (41) equipped with a sensor assembly (24) that measures temperature, and generates a measurement signal (25), and a cross-directional temperature profile (21) of the machine element is generated from the measurement signal. One or more reference profiles (35) are generated for the cross-directional temperature profile of the machine element. The cross-directional temperature profile of the machine element generated from the measurement signal and at least one reference profile generated for it are compared to find a change concerning the operating conditions of the fiber web machine or paper finishing machine, and actions are performed on the basis of said change. The invention also relates to a corresponding system, a rotating machine element and a computer program product.

  • Patent number: 10397375
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for multi-tenant cloud-based queuing. Certain techniques are disclosed herein that provide for interactions and observability between tenant queues within a multi-tenant cloud-based queuing database. In some embodiments, the queues may be utilized by both users and merchants for both online and point-of-service interactions. Multiple queues for multiple tenants are hosted by a cloud computing system. Each queue may include one more queue entries, each of which includes a ticket value, and may further include a ticket alias. The ticket values and/or ticket aliases may be decoupled from a queue position for the entry. In some embodiments, the queue entries may be swapped within a queue or between queues, and the system may enable searching in or automated actions between queues and/or tenants based in part upon queue conditions.

  • Publication number: 20190210790
    Abstract: Shipping system for storing and/or transporting temperature-sensitive materials. In one embodiment, the system includes an outer box having four side walls, bottom closure flaps, and top closure flaps. A vacuum insulated panel (VIP) is detachably coupled to one of the top closure flaps and is removably covered by a cover. An insulation unit is removably positioned within the outer box, the insulation unit including a plurality of VIPs arranged to define a cavity bounded by a bottom wall and four side walls. A disposable liner is removably mounted on the insulation unit. The liner may be a thermoformed sheet and may cover the interior and top surfaces of the insulation unit. A plurality of temperature-control members and a product box may be removably positioned in the liner. Preferably, the liner is shaped so that the temperature-control members snugly fit around all sides of the product box.
