  • Patent number: 11956928
    Abstract: A facility (e.g., data center) for more efficient cooling of computing devices is disclosed. In one embodiment, the data center comprises a set of external walls, a ceiling connected to the external walls and having circular exhaust openings, and one or more pods positioned within the external walls and below the ceiling. A set of flexible tubes are used to connect the pod exhaust openings to the ceiling openings. Actuating closures may be used (e.g., at one end of each of the tubes) to control airflow, and air pressure sensors may be placed near or inside one or more of the tubes. A controller may be configured to receive air pressure data from the air pressure sensors and adjust the actuating closures to maintain a desired air pressure level. In some examples, the actuating closure may have a normally closed position when power is not applied.

  • Publication number: 20230374878
    Abstract: A method for aligning a tree within a resource extraction system includes disposing a riser system on a wellhead of the resource extraction system without utilizing a mechanical alignment system to circumferentially align the riser system with the wellhead. The method also includes disposing a tubing hanger at a landed position within the wellhead. In addition, the method includes disposing an orientation mechanism on the wellhead. The orientation mechanism includes an alignment feature configured to engage a corresponding alignment feature of the tree. Furthermore, the method includes moving the tree toward the wellhead such that the alignment feature of the tree engages the alignment feature of the orientation mechanism to approximately establish a target circumferential orientation of the tree relative to the tubing hanger.
