  • Publication number: 20200224402
    Abstract: A combined sewer/enclosure overflow (CSO) sensor system is described for accurate detection and measurement of overflow events. From the combined data, trending information can determine if there is debris accumulation. Rain masks can be used in the trending data to measure overall health. External sensors in combination with the CSO sensors provide predictive information and additional levels of information/data accuracy. The sensor system automatically and remotely monitors CSO locations and provides real-time data regarding start times, stop times, duration, and flow volumes of overflows that occur in these structures and provide regulatory and public notification of these events.

  • Publication number: 20200188966
    Abstract: A cleaning tool system has a central body and a fore body extending from the central body and having a peripheral contour shaped to be closely received in an enclosed channel. The fore body has orifices to dispense a cleaning medium. A connection boss in the central body is configured to receive a supply line for the cleaning medium. A plurality of stabilizers each extend from the central body radially relative to a longitudinal axis to engage surfaces of the channel. A loop hook in the fore body is configured to attach a draw line to pull the fore body and central body through the channel along the longitudinal axis.

  • Publication number: 20140115064
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an apparatus may store a document associated with a user. The apparatus may further receive a transaction associated with the user and associate the document with the transaction. The apparatus may then initiate a communication session associated with the transaction between the user and a participant. The apparatus may assign a task to the participant so that the participant is responsible for performing the task in order for the transaction to be resolved.

  • Publication number: 20140101060
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a memory may store information associated with an asset. A processor communicatively coupled to the memory may receive a request to transfer the asset upon the occurrence of an event. The processor may further determine at least one of an appropriate titling and an appropriate beneficiary designation of the asset based at least in part upon the asset and the event and apply at least one of the appropriate titling and the appropriate beneficiary designation to the asset.

  • Patent number: 4256988
    Abstract: The invention relates to electric incandescent lamps having a gas fill containing halogen. The internal surface of the lamp envelope and optionally also the exposed surface of internal components of the lamp are protected from attack by halogens including fluorine by a continuous imperforate coating composed of a metal oxide resistant to halogen attack. In order to achieve the necessary degree of continuity of the coating the oxide is formed in situ from a compound of the metal deposited as a solution on the surface. The preferred oxide is alumina, the other oxides of polyvalent and transition metals, including metals of the lanthanide series may be used. The coatings are preferably formed from solutions of halides of the metals in polar organic solvents such as methanol. The invention prolongs the life of lamps provided with the protective coating and enable such resistant and possibly cheaper materials to be employed for certain lamp components.

  • Patent number: 4185922
    Abstract: The invention relates to the manufacture of electric lamps containing fluorine in their gas fill. Fluorine can be accurately and conveniently introduced into an electric lamp envelope in the form of a fluorocarbon polymer. If a soluble fluorocarbon polymer, such as a degraded PTFE, is dissolved in a suitable solvent, for example a fluorine-substituted hydrocarbon or halocarbon solvent, the resulting solution can be metered with great accuracy into the lamp envelope and the solvent subsequently evaporated. The invention avoids the difficulties otherwise inherent in dispensing accurate quantities of an extremely reactive gaseous material.
