  • Patent number: 11208602
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for converting a feedstock comprising pyrolysis oil and a heavy hydrocarbon-based feedstock, with: a) a step of hydroconversion in a reactor; b) a step of separating the liquid effluent obtained from step a) into a naphtha fraction, a gas oil fraction, a vacuum gas oil fraction and an unconverted residue fraction; c) a step of hydrocracking of the vacuum gas oil fraction; d) a step of fractionating the hydrocracked liquid effluent obtained from step c) into a naphtha fraction, a gas oil fraction and a vacuum gas oil fraction; e) a step of steam cracking of a portion of the naphtha fraction obtained from step d); f) a step of fractionating at least a portion of the steam-cracked effluent obtained from step e); g) a step in which the pyrolysis oil fraction obtained from step f) is sent into step a).

  • Patent number: 10806848
    Abstract: Embodiments of a system box for holding a bag system and methods for separating composite liquids are described. In embodiments, a bag system may be a blood bag system used to collect blood, separate the blood into components, store the components, and utilize the components in patients. The system box may hold the blood bag system. Processes can then be performed to separate components from the blood.

  • Patent number: 8944983
    Abstract: An apparatus for separating at least two discrete volumes of a composite liquid into components, comprising a valve design that facilitates loading and unloading of sets of blood bags. The valves comprise a jaw mounted on a shaft, the jaw being adapted to apply radio frequency energy to seal a tube, a stepper motor section, and at least two position sensors. The valve sections are mounted on an upper plate, and the stepper motor sections are mounted on a lower plate. A main radio frequency coil is selectively electrically coupled to each of the valves through a multiplexing switch.

  • Patent number: 8540614
    Abstract: An apparatus for separating at least two discrete volumes of a composite liquid into at least a first component and a second component, comprising a valve design that facilitates loading and unloading of blood bags and associated tubing and bag sets. The valves comprise a rotating head, mounted on a shaft, which assumes a “load” position. The head pivots to an “open” position, which secures the tube in its designated location, but which maintains an open lumen through the tube. When the head is in a “closed” position, blood components cannot flow through the tube. The valve apparatus comprises means for maintaining a constant pressure on the tube and contact with the tube as the tube is melted and sealed.
