  • Publication number: 20220196330
    Abstract: In one aspect, a hybrid heat exchanger that includes a metallic serpentine tube having an inlet end portion to receive a process fluid, an outlet end portion, and a series of runs and return bends directing the process fluid from the inlet end portion to the outlet end portion of the metallic serpentine tube. The hybrid heat exchanger further includes a thermally conductive polymer body thermally integrated with the serpentine tube. The thermally conductive polymer body has an outer surface to be contacted by a fluid, such as air and/or water. The thermally conductive polymer body is configured to transfer heat between the metallic serpentine tube and the fluid contacting the outer surface of the thermally conductive polymer body. The outer surface of the thermally conductive polymer body includes surface enhancement features that affect flow of the fluid across the outer surface of the thermally conductive polymer body.

  • Publication number: 20220178619
    Abstract: In accordance with one aspect of the present disclosure, a tubular membrane heat exchanger module is provided that includes an inlet header and outlet header. The inlet header is configured to connect to an adjacent upstream tubular membrane heat exchanger module and from an upstream wetted compartment therewith. The outlet header is configured to connect to an adjacent downstream tubular membrane heat exchanger module and form a downstream wetted compartment therewith. The tubular membrane heat exchanger module further includes tubular membranes connecting the inlet header and the outlet header. The tubular membranes facilitate flow of process fluid from the upstream wetted compartment to the downstream wetted compartment. Further, the tubular membranes permit mass transfer between the process fluid in the tubular membranes and a fluid contacting outer surfaces of the tubular membranes.

  • Publication number: 20220138075
    Abstract: A method may include obtaining at least one dataset that includes information corresponding to periods of usage of a plurality of components within a cloud infrastructure and usage cost for each component of the plurality of components within the cloud infrastructure. The method may include comparing the information corresponding to the periods of usage with at least a portion of the information corresponding to the usage cost for components. The method may include determining a cost for one or more of the components for a period of time. The cost may be determined based on the comparison of the information corresponding to the periods of usage of the components with at least the portion of the information corresponding to the usage cost for the components. The method may include generating a visualization that includes information representative of the cost of the components and displaying the visualization via a display screen.

  • Publication number: 20220057905
    Abstract: A method may include displaying, via a display screen, a visualization of data within a user interface (UI). The data may include multiple layers of information. The method may include receiving, via the UI, a first user input effective to select portions of the data to be included in the visualization of the data displayed within the UI. The method may include receiving, via the UI, a second user input effective to select one or more subsets of the layers of information to be included in the visualization displayed within the UI. The method may include altering the visualization of the data within the UI based on the first user input and according to the second user input. The visualization of the data may be altered by hiding one or more subsets of the layers of information that are not to be included in the visualization displayed within the UI.

  • Publication number: 20210321732
    Abstract: Various types of travel bags are provided with at least one portable self-contained vacuum compression system having a portable vacuum pump powered by a portable, preferably removable, rechargeable battery, a compression connection system, and a vacuum compression bag secured within the interior space of the travel bag. The portable self-contained vacuum compression system allows the user to pack more clothing or compressible goods into their travel bag via the use of vacuum compression. The air inside the compression bag can be evacuated by the attached self-contained vacuum pump assembly which is secured within the travel bag in a manner to hold the self-contained vacuum system within the travel bag's internal dimensions in one embodiment. The vacuum compression system can be held in place via a removable or a fixed frame that permits operation of the vacuum compression system within the internal dimensions of the travel bag.
