  • Publication number: 20190260194
    Abstract: A method is provided for setting up a transmission link for electrical energy, in which at least one superconductive cable and a cryostat surrounding the same are used, the cryostat having two metal tubes arranged concentrically in relation to one another, between which a vacuum insulation is provided. The ends of the cryostat in the assembled state as well as the superconductive cable located in the same are attached on fixed parts of the transmission link. At least at one end of the cryostat, there is gaplessly connected to the same a tube body which is bent by an angle of at least 180° and likewise consists of two metal tubes arranged concentrically in relation to one another, between which a vacuum insulation is provided. The superconductive cable protruding from the cryostat is arranged in the tube body at room temperature in such a way that it runs at least in the direct proximity of the wall of the inner tube of the tube body that has the greater bending radius.

  • Publication number: 20190133146
    Abstract: A process for enhancing polyphenolics content of beverages brewed from polyphenolic containing, processed beverage substrate by pre-soaking substrate (coffee beans, for example) before roasting and then quenching the substrate after processing with the liquid in which the substrate was first “pre-soaked.” Beverages produced from the treated substrate exhibit substantially increased polyphenolics content, when compared to conventionally processed beverage substrate of the same nature and processing.

  • Patent number: 6487273
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a radiographic apparatus that utilizes a single integral housing for providing an evacuated envelope for an anode and cathode assembly. The integral housing provides sufficient radiation blocking and heat transfer characteristics such that an additional external housing is not required. The integral housing is air cooled, and thus does not utilize any coolant. In addition, the integral housing is insulated with a potting material, which electrically insulates the integral housing and its components, and also limits the amount of noise emitted from the housing during operation. In an alternative embodiment, enhanced thermal and electrically insulating properties are achieved through the use of a potting material disposed in selected areas of the tube interior. The potting material cooperates with optimized airflow through the tube assembly to effectively and continuously remove heat therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20020081363
    Abstract: A new cocoa bean processing technique which, in stark contrast to conventional cocoa processing methods, preserves the beneficial flavanoid compounds of cocoa beans in finished, cocoa bean-based foodstuffs. The present method produces roasted cocoa beans that can be ground and the liquor can be either cooled and allowed to solidify (unsweetened chocolate) or pressed and re-ground to form cocoa powder. The resulting cocoa powder can then be used in a traditional manner to make sweetened chocolate products such as candy and beverages for consumption by humans or animals. The resulting products will be a source of flavanoid compounds, which are known antioxidants.

  • Patent number: 6026112
    Abstract: A laser beam delivery system that uses total internal reflection inside prisms to redirect the high powered broadband output laser power from a laser beam source to the intended target. An articulated arm having straight segments connected end to end by rotatable joints attaches to a laser source that produces a laser output beam having at least two wavelengths. A prism is located at each joint wherein the laser output beam travelling down each of the segments is re-directed down the subsequent segment. The prisms are oriented to re-direct the laser beam by total internal reflection. Anti-reflective coatings are formed on each prism surface where the beam enters and exits each of the prisms.

  • Patent number: 5889498
    Abstract: An end-fire array antenna achieves improved performance with an array of radiative members that are arranged collinearly between an array first end and an array second end and a divergent reflector which is arranged collinearly with the radiative members. The radiative members are spaced to facilitate radiation and reception of electromagnetic signals in an antenna direction which extends from the array second end and the divergent reflector is spaced from the array first end to enhance this radiation and reception. A wall of the reflector preferably diverges from an antenna axis by an angle in the region of 24 to 48 degrees. The divergent reflector terminates in an open end which has a transverse width that preferably exceeds 1.4 .lambda..sub.dsgn wherein .lambda..sub.dsgn is the design wavelength of the antenna. In-service antennas are modified with a divergent reflector that is configured for coupling to an existing antenna back wall or antenna cup.
