  • Publication number: 20040091390
    Abstract: A method for killing and removing mold and other biological contaminants from structural surfaces. The contaminated surface is enclosed and isolated in a containment area from other noncontaminated surfaces. A biocidal agent is applied to the contaminated surface to kill the contaminant. After the biocidal agent dryes, the contaminant is encapsulated. The contaminant and encapsulant are then removed from the surface by propelling frozen carbon dioxide pellets against the surface at a high velocity. The removed contaminants are collected and disposed of with a high volume air extractor equipped with filters. The containment area may be treated with ultraviolet radiation to kill any remaining contaminants which may be airborne or adhere to the containment area surfaces. A biocidal sealer may be applied to the formerly contaminated surface to prevent regrowth of the contaminant.

  • Patent number: 5165021
    Abstract: An apparatus for managing transfer of a packet of information to one of a plurality of ports with each the port having an associated port speed includes a double linked list transmit queue and a plurality of port queues corresponding to the plurality of ports. The packet is read to determine a priority and destination port of the packet. A loadsheding value correlating to the packet's destination port and priority is determined and compared with a measure of the amount of free space in the transmit queue. The packet is loaded into the transmit queue if the loadsheding value is less than or equal to the measure of the amount of free space in the transmit queue. The packet is discarded in the event the loadsheding value is greater than the measure of the amount of free space in the transmit queue.
