    Abstract: A thermal management system includes a baseplate assembly and a flow system. The baseplate assembly includes a baseplate and a semiconductor die. The flow system includes a submerged jet impingement assembly for direct semiconductor die cooling, a first flow path extending over the semiconductor die via the submerged jet impingement assembly, and a second flow path in thermal contact with the baseplate, the flow system including a fluid flowing through the first flow path and the second flow path. The flow system is configured to direct the fluid to the upper semiconductor surface of the semiconductor die via the first flow path and to the baseplate via the second flow path so as to transfer heat away from the semiconductor die and from the baseplate so as to cool the baseplate assembly.

  • Patent number: 11655609
    Abstract: A removable and replaceable end cap that selectively lockingly engages a seat ring of a filter housing. The end cap may include a flange that compresses a gasket member between the end cap and the seat ring to form a fluid tight seal therebetween. The end cap may include cam locking grooves that may each receive insertion of a protrusion of the seat ring, and which are structured for at least rotational displacement about the received protrusion as the end cap is rotated between locked and unlocked positions relative to the seat ring. The end cap may also include an opening that accommodates the passage of a fluid to a filter element. The filter element, which may be coupled to the end cap, may be adapted to remove particulate or contaminate from the received fluid.

  • Publication number: 20220347602
    Abstract: A filter element has a filter media assembly extending between a first end and a second end to define a media length along a longitudinal axis. The filter media assembly defines a central opening on an upstream side and an outer radial boundary on a downstream side. A first endcap is coupled to the first end. The first endcap has a media potting structure defining an annular surface abutting the first end of the filter media assembly, an inner tubular flange extending longitudinally from the annular surface into the central opening, and an outer tubular flange extending longitudinally from the annular surface over the outer radial boundary of the first end of the filter media assembly. The first endcap has an outer circumferential sealing surface about the longitudinal axis and a shroud to obstruct fluid flow extending longitudinally from the outer circumferential sealing surface towards the second end.

  • Patent number: 11473028
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to a process for producing synthetic hydrocarbon base oils having advantageous properties for formulation of engine oils, and the base oils obtained by such processes, involving the production of branched alkenes from the oligomerization of C14-C18 olefins. According to one embodiment, the base oils are obtained by first forming a mixture of two or more olefins ranging from C14-C18, where one of the olefins is an alpha olefin and the other has an average double bond position between 1.5-5.0, and oligomerizing this mixture in the presence of a catalyst to form one or more branched alkenes, hydrogenating the branched alkenes, and fractionating to form base oils. According to one aspect, advantageous properties can be obtained by controlling one or more of the degree of branching, branch length, branching positions, selection of the C14-C18 olefins, and catalytic isomerization, during or after the oligomerization process.

  • Publication number: 20220275306
    Abstract: A process for the preparation of saturated hydrocarbon base oils is provided, comprising oligomerization of a feed mixture that has an average carbon number in the range of 14 to 18 to produce an oligomer product comprising dimers, trimers, and higher oligomers, where the dimer has a branching proximity (BP) of 20 or greater, isomerization of at least the dimer portion, and hydrogenation of the isomerized product. The dimer portion is separated from the oligomer product, and a saturated hydrocarbon base oil is obtained comprising greater than 90% dimers having an average carbon number in the range of from 29 to 36, and the dimer portion having a weight average molecular weight in the range of 422 to 510, where the dimers have an average Branching Index (BI) in a range of 22 to 26 and an average paraffin branching proximity (BP) in a range of from 18 to 26.

  • Patent number: 11247948
    Abstract: Provided herein is a unique process that prepares a saturated hydrocarbon mixture with well-controlled structural characteristics that address the performance requirements driven by the stricter environmental and fuel economy regulations for automotive engine oils. The process allows for the branching characteristics of the hydrocarbon molecules to be controlled so as to consistently provide a composition that has a surprising CCS viscosity at ?35° C. (ASTM D5329) and Noack volatility (ASTM D5800) relationship. The process comprises providing a specific olefinic feedstock, oligomerizing in the presence of a BF3 catalyst, and hydroisomerizing in the presence of a noble-metal impregnated, 10-member ring zeolite catalyst.
