  • Patent number: 11226095
    Abstract: A method is provided for controlling airflow into a furnace that employs a velocity type damper. In one embodiment, the method for controlling airflow may include engaging a velocity type damper to an air port opening of a furnace. The velocity type damper includes at least one air controlling surface that is positioned proximate to a wall of the furnace at the air port opening so that air velocity exiting the at least one air controlling surface is substantially equal to the air velocity entering the air port opening to the furnace. The method may further include adjusting a cross sectional area through the velocity type damper to control air velocity into the furnace through the air port opening.

  • Patent number: 11215635
    Abstract: An accelerometer arrangement and method are described for determining accelerations of an inground tool. First and second triaxial accelerometers are supported such that a normal sensing axis of the first triaxial accelerometer is at least generally orthogonal to the normal sensing axis of the second triaxial accelerometer for determining the accelerations along the three orthogonal axes based on a combination of sensing axis outputs from one or both of the triaxial accelerometers. A weaker sensing axis of one triaxial accelerometer can be supported at least approximately normal to a weaker sensing axis of another triaxial accelerometer such that the weaker axes are not used. The triaxial accelerometers can be supported such that one axis of one accelerometer can be redundant with respect to another axis of another accelerometer. One triaxial accelerometer can be mounted on a tilted plane with respect to another triaxial accelerometer.

  • Patent number: 11211619
    Abstract: Presented are fuel cell systems and control logic for extracting water from system exhaust, methods for making/using such systems, and electric-drive vehicles with aftertreatment systems for extracting water from fuel cell exhaust. An aftertreatment system for a fuel cell stack includes a condensate generator that fluidly connects to the fuel cell stack to receive exhaust output therefrom. The condensate generator includes an evaporator core with a refrigerant line that actively cool the exhaust via controlled circulation of refrigerant fluid. A condensate collector fluidly connected to the condensate generator includes a reservoir housing with a condensate trap that separates entrained water vapor from the cooled exhaust. The reservoir housing collects the separated water vapor as liquid water. A liquid storage container fluidly connected to the condensate collector receives and stores the collected water.
