  • Patent number: 10000400
    Abstract: Laundry wash water recycle system comprising a repressurization pump in fluid communication with a storage tank containing previously used wash water for pumping the used wash water sequentially through a lint filter, a cyclone, and a multi-media filter disposed in sequential series wherein the self-cleaning lint filter in sequential series combination with the cyclone removes insoluble solids with the multi-media filter providing a final filtration for obtaining an output of pressurized double filtered cyclonically processed water. An advanced oxidation combination is introduced into pressurized double filtered cyclonically processed water and mixing occurs for producing a double filtered cyclonically processed advanced oxidation treated water that is communicated to a clean water storage tank for providing on demand delivery to at least one washer and continuous delivery of a feedback flow to the inlet storage tank for providing constant recirculation of treated water through the system.

  • Patent number: 9422181
    Abstract: Vehicle wash water reclaim system in fluid communication with settling tanks receiving used vehicle wash water, the system comprising: a control system, a self-cleaning vertical plane strainer, a pump controlled by the control system, and a cyclone assembly wherein the pump is in fluid communication with the self-cleaning vertical plane strainer for drawing vehicle wash water through the vertical plane strainer and pumping it through the cyclone assembly to a recirculation line feeding back to the underground settling tanks and to a vehicle wash line feeding vehicle wash equipment. The assembly comprising at least one first cyclone in continuous fluid communication between the pump and the recirculation and vehicle wash lines and at least one second cyclone selectively switched into parallel fluid communication with the at least one first cyclone. An ozone system and a hydrogen peroxide system comprising a screen filter bio-media combination are disposed in the recirculation line.

  • Patent number: 4179693
    Abstract: An autonomous navigational system for an airborne vehicle is disclosed which automatically updates its position and heading coordinates at each of a plurality of checkpoints along a preselected flight path. Prestored in a memory of the navigational system is a plurality of reference map images respectively associated with the plurality of checkpoints. Each reference map image is comprised of a plurality of terrain features associated with the terrain about an associated checkpoint. In operation, an acquisition unit senses an image of local terrain at each checkpoint. The relative sizes of reference and sensed map images vary with the mission requirements. A terrain feature extractor detects a plurality of terrain features contained in the sensed map image.

  • Patent number: 4029947
    Abstract: A digital character generator method and system encode characters based on a normalized quad in accordance with coordinates of initial starting points of outlines of the character and variational parameters defining changes in those outlines such as slope and curvature. All characters of all formats are encoded for a maximum point size display. Vertical scaling factors permit character generation at any desired point size display. Horizontal scaling factors are employed both for transforming computations based on the encoded parameters for the normalized quad to a desired point size of display and also to adapt cyclic computations to the stroking density of a display CRT.
