  • Publication number: 20210080101
    Abstract: A burner apparatus and method which provide an increased amount of internal flue recirculation for reducing NOx emissions by ejecting a series of surrounding primary fuel streams and also ejecting on one or more subsequent series of surrounding fuel streams outside of the burner wall toward the burner combustion wherein each succeeding series of surrounding fuel streams must travel a greater distance to the combustion zone and each series of surrounding fuel streams must contact one or more radial impact structures provided on the exterior of the burner wall.

  • Patent number: 10920979
    Abstract: A flow momentum enhancing device having an airfoil shape is used in a new or refurbished burner to increase the momentum of the burner combustion air stream and create a reduced pressure region which pulls inert products of combustion into the combustion process. The inert products of combustion mix with the burner air and/or fuel streams to lower the peak flame temperature of the burner and provide reduced NOx production.

  • Publication number: 20190390560
    Abstract: A method and system in which a waste gas or liquid product is combusted or otherwise used at a well site or other source location to drive a generator to produce electrical energy which is then stored in a portable storage device, such as rechargeable battery or an array of rechargeable batteries, which can subsequently be transported, for example, to a charging station for vehicles or other electrical devices or systems, or to a delivery location for downloading the portable stored electrical energy to a power supply grid.

  • Patent number: 10423770
    Abstract: An authentication method. The method comprises comparing user voice data received via an electronic device to a stored voice template to determine a voice authentication parameter. A voice authentication threshold is determined and the voice authentication parameter is compared to the voice authentication threshold to determine whether to authenticate the user. Determining the voice authentication threshold comprises determining a current value of an enrollment counter, then comparing the current value of the enrollment counter to an enrollment counter threshold and determining whether the stored voice template is fully enrolled according to the result. If the stored voice template is fully enrolled, the voice authentication threshold is set to a first voice authentication threshold. If the stored voice template is not fully enrolled then a device attribute received from the electronic device is compared to a stored device attribute.

  • Publication number: 20190163715
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are embodiments of a system and method for the dynamic provisioning of static content. In one embodiment, information presented on a content delivery system can be refreshed based on information published on a content management system. One embodiment can interface the content delivery system and the content management system at the page level. More specifically, content dependencies across pages employing the same content or portion(s) thereof can be tracked in a timely, accurate manner. Upon receiving a notification of a change to the content or a portion thereof from the content management system, a content generation system may operate to determine, based on the dependencies, what pages are affected by the change and, based on the determination, dynamically regenerate any and all affected pages. The regenerated pages may then be stored and/or pushed to the web tier for delivery to end users.

  • Patent number: 9749411
    Abstract: The sharing of objects may be executed by performing various share type administrations. Objects may be shared directly to a site or may be made available indirectly for reuse by a site. The objects shared and made available for reuse may be added to the site to which they are shared and made available for reuse. References to the objects shared and made available for reuse are stored in repositories in response to, and in accordance with, the share type administration performed. The storage of the references to objects is based on privileges associated with at least one of a repository, a site and a user. Objects made available for reuse by, and shared to, a site may be made unavailable for reuse by, and unshared to, the site through the execution of a share type administration.

  • Patent number: 9686374
    Abstract: A system and method for provisioning dynamically generated content. One embodiment can interface a content delivery system and a content management system at the fragment level. Depending upon how a page is organized, a fragment may refer to a block within the page, a portion of the page, or a content item presented on the page. When a content item is updated and published onto the content management system, one embodiment can operate to track dependencies of managed pages and invalidate/validate fragment(s) affected by the change(s) accordingly. The updated fragment(s) may then be dynamically assembled on-the-fly or on-demand. The updated fragment(s) may or may not be cached. In this way, changes made to a piece of content can be reflected in all pages which utilize this content almost simultaneously with the changes to the content itself.

  • Publication number: 20170070399
    Abstract: A site in a portal management framework may have a set of site objects given a single identity. The site may be created in the portal management framework by a console object. The portal management framework may have at least one portal providing a gateway for access to the site. Sets of users granted administrative privileges with respect to a site object may further grant and delegate administrative privileges to other sets of users to perform administration type operations on site objects over which they have administrative privileges. Server consoles may be provided for performing administration on object(s) in the portal management framework. Site consoles may be provided for performing administration on object(s) with respect to each site.

  • Patent number: 9221402
    Abstract: A bicycle rack is configured to support a bicycle in either a substantially horizontal orientation or in an upright, substantially vertical orientation. The bicycle rack includes pivotally and slidably coupled first and second frame members, and three support assemblies. Each support assembly includes a first support member defining a generally upwardly facing bicycle support surface, and a second support member. The first support members are height adjustable to vary a height of the bicycle support surfaces above the plane, and to provide a three-point bicycle support platform configured to support a bicycle in a substantially horizontal orientation. Each second support member includes a releasable clamp member for supporting a bicycle in an upright, substantially vertical orientation.
