  • Publication number: 20210237525
    Abstract: An ice anchoring system includes a tether that is elongated and has a first end and a second end. An anchor is attached to the second end of the tether. The anchor has length dimension extending from a first later edge to a second lateral edge and a width dimension extending from a front side to a rear side. The length dimension is elongated with respect to the width dimension. The tether is secured to the anchor such that a longitudinal axis of the anchor extending through the first and second lateral edges forms an angle with a horizonal plane between 0° and 45° when the anchor is hung freely from the tether.

  • Publication number: 20210029974
    Abstract: An aquaculture pen includes an annular floatation assembly formed from a plurality of float platforms connected end to end. A weight ring is suspended from the floatation assembly by a first plurality of tension members at a central portion of the float platforms. A net support ring is suspended from the floatation assembly by a second plurality of tension members that are attached to the floatation assembly, for example, outboard of the first plurality of tension members. A mesh enclosure for the pen includes a main portion attached to the net support ring, a jump net portion that extends from the net support ring to engage the inboard side of the floatation assembly, and a top portion that closes an upper end of the mesh enclosure.

  • Patent number: 10830540
    Abstract: A heat exchanger and a method for additively manufacturing the heat exchanger are provided. The heat exchanger includes a plurality of fluid passageways that are formed by additive manufacturing methods which enable the formation of fluid passageways that are smaller in size, that have thinner walls, and that have complex and intricate heat exchanger features that were not possible using prior manufacturing methods. For example, the fluid passageways may be curvilinear and may include heat exchanging fins that are less than 0.01 inches thick and formed at a fin density of more than four heat exchanging fins per centimeter. In addition, the heat exchanging fins may be angled with respect to the walls of the fluid passageways and adjacent fins may be offset relative to each other.

  • Patent number: 10689281
    Abstract: A mobile processing system is disclosed for the removal of radioactive contaminants from nuclear process waste water. The system is fully scalable, modular, and portable allowing the system to be fully customizable according the site-specific remediation requirements. It is designed to be both transported and operated from standard sized intermodal containers or custom designed enclosures for increased mobility between sites and on-site, further increasing the speed and ease with which the system may be deployed. Additionally, the system is completely modular wherein the various different modules perform different forms or stages of waste water remediation and may be connected in parallel and/or in series. Depending on the needs of the particular site, one or more different processes may be used. In some embodiments, one or more of the same modules may be used in the same operation.
