  • Publication number: 20190276298
    Abstract: A liquid dispense system has a container having an open end and a sidewall defining a container interior, and a fitment enclosing the open end of the container. The sidewall has at least one vent. The fitment has a hollow body with a partition extending across an interior of the hollow body, the partition having at least one aperture. The fitment further has a valve connected to the partition and being movable between a normally-closed position and an open position. The at least one vent is covered by a protective membrane configured to filter air that enters the container interior as liquid is dispensed from the container interior when the valve is in the open position.

  • Patent number: 10384338
    Abstract: A robotic vehicle is provided with an extendable arm and a mandible structure. The mandible structure includes a pair of mandibles with toothed portions that cooperatively engage such that the mandibles may be opened and closed by applying a force to only one of the pair of mandibles. The mandible structure hangs freely from the extendable arm and is balanced so that the mandible structure naturally maintains a substantially vertical orientation. In the closed position, the mandible structure defines an interior cavity suitable for securely grasping a ring.

  • Patent number: 10339017
    Abstract: Methods and systems for storing data at a storage device of a storage system are provided. The data is first temporarily stored at a first write cache and an input/output request for a persistence storage device used as a second write cache is generated, when an I/O request size including the received data has reached a threshold value. The data from the first cache is transferred to the persistence storage device and a recovery control block with a location of the data stored at the persistence storage device is updated. An entry is added to a linked list that is used to track valid data stored at the persistence storage device and then the data is transferred from the persistence storage device to the storage device of the storage system.

  • Patent number: 10329472
    Abstract: Fluid additives suitable for use in a wellbore (e.g., a liquid comprising an aqueous miscible fluid, a liquid surfactant, or both) may be converted into a liquid-infiltrated porous silica that is a flowable bulk solid. The flowable bulk solid may then be handled and stored as a traditional solid wellbore additive. For example, the flowable bulk solid may be added to an aqueous fluid to produce a wellbore fluid that is then introduced into a wellbore penetrating a subterranean formation.

  • Patent number: 10309089
    Abstract: A liquid quality system for removing particulates from liquid (e.g., storm-water runoff). The system can include tubular portion (e.g., a manhole). The tubular portion has an inlet and an outlet. The system includes liquid quality device. The liquid quality device includes a partitioning portion. The partitioning portion has a first region including a funnel shape with a sump inlet aperture. The partitioning portion also has a second region including a sump outlet aperture and optionally a sump access aperture. A sump region is located between a base portion and the partitioning portion, wherein a flow of the liquid travels from the inlet in the tubular portion, into the funnel, through the sump inlet aperture, into the sump region, through the sump outlet aperture, and out the outlet of the tubular portion. At least one drag-inducing portion is positioned proximate the tubular portion in the sump region and projecting inwardly towards a central axis of the sump region.

  • Publication number: 20190155896
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a processing device receives an instruction to schedule an event associated with a remote target device, generates a schedule for the remote target device, and transmits the schedule to the remote target device. The processing device receives usage information from the remote target device and additional usage information from other remote devices. The processing device applies a machine learning algorithm to the usage information and the additional usage information to determine an update to the schedule. The processing device updates the schedule and sends the update to the remote target device.
