  • Patent number: 10377690
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for forming enals from corresponding alehydes in a single enclosed unit such as a divided wall reaction distillation unit. The method of the present invention includes (a) feeding an aldehyde feed stream comprising at least one aldehyde reactant into a reaction zone contained within said single enclosed unit; (b) reacting said at least one aldehyde reactant in said reaction zone in the presence of a catalyst to form an enal-containing reaction zone effluent comprising an enal; (c) purifying said enal-containing reaction zone effluent in a first separation zone within said single enclosed unit to form an enal-rich product mixture and a residual unreacted aldehyde mixture; and (d) collecting from said single enclosed unit at least a portion of said enal-rich product mixture. The method of the present invention results in high enal yields at a markedly reduced capital cost and energy consumption as compared to prior art processes.

  • Publication number: 20190137219
    Abstract: Various techniques are described herein for controlling autonomous and semi-autonomous motorized weapons systems. In various embodiments, semi-autonomous motorized weapons systems may perform automated target identification, selection and prioritization techniques. Dynamic target tracking may be performed, for both primary and secondary targets, in cases of stationary and moving targets and weapon systems. A motorized weapon system then may be actuated automatically toward a firing solution target point, during which the operator-controlled firing mechanism may be enabled or disabled based on the projected point of impact of the weapon in comparison to a determined boundary area associated with the target.

  • Publication number: 20130145913
    Abstract: This specification discloses a mechanism that alters the cutting angle of a motorized miter saw. The cutting angle is altered by a mechanism that deploys a member from within or behind the fence to a position in front of the fence parallel to the blade and partially within a cavity/opening in the material resting surface. When deployed in front of the fence, the angle between the blade and cutting material is altered.
