  • Patent number: 10386263
    Abstract: An apparatus for providing access to pressurized pipes includes a body member configured to be attached to a pipe or vessel or a fitting coupled to a pipe or vessel. The body member has an internal barrel in fluid communication with the pipe or vessel or fitting when the body member is attached to the pipe or vessel or fitting. A hollow piston is slidable axially within the internal barrel, and the apparatus is configured such that when an internal volume of the piston is pressurized by a fluid from the pipe or vessel, a force exerted by pressurized fluid on the piston in an axial direction is opposed by a force exerted by pressurized fluid on a counter-pressure portion of the piston. The apparatus includes a conduit orifice that allows a conduit to be disposed therethrough so as to pass into the apparatus to an interior of the piston.

  • Patent number: 10379450
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to apparatus and methods for performing photolithography processes. In one embodiment, a system including multiple interferometers for accurately measuring the location of a substrate during operation is provided. The system may include two chucks, and the two chucks are aligned in a first direction. The interferometers are placed along the first direction to measure the location of the substrate with respect to the first direction. The reduced distance between the interferometers and the chuck improves the accuracy of the measurement of the location of the substrate. In another embodiment, mask pattern data is provided to the system, and the mask pattern data is modified based on location and position information of the substrate. By controlling the mask pattern data with the location and position information of the substrate, less positional errors of the pattern formed on the substrate can be achieved.
