  • Patent number: 10677508
    Abstract: A method for operating a cooling unit on board an aircraft includes operating the cooling unit in a cooling mode and in a thawing mode. In the thawing mode, any thawed water in the cooling unit is drained off from a thawing element with the aid of gravitational force, and the thawing mode is prevented during specifiable flight phases and/or flight attitudes of the aircraft. A cooling unit configuration for an aircraft includes a cooling unit to be mounted on board an aircraft. The cooling unit can be operated in a cooling mode and in a thawing mode. The cooling unit has an element that thaws in the thawing mode, from which any thawed water can be drained off with the aid of gravitational force. A control device is configured to prevent the thawing mode during specifiable flight phases and/or flight attitudes of the aircraft.

  • Publication number: 20160202139
    Abstract: In a method for determining the contamination rate of a pipeline, a pressure value of an internal pressure at a measuring location of the pipeline is determined during a flushing procedure using a flushing medium in the pipelined, and the contamination rate is determined by evaluating the pressure value by means of a test criterion. For the contamination rate of a pipeline system, a contaminated location is additionally determined by evaluating the contamination rates by means of a locating criterion. Corresponding devices contain an interface for the pressure value, and an evaluation unit for determining the contamination rate or of the contaminated location according to the methods mentioned above. A computer program serves for carrying out the above-mentioned methods. A pressure sensor which is operatively connected with an internal pressure of a pipeline is used in one of the above-mentioned methods.
