  • Patent number: 10713376
    Abstract: The technology disclosed relates to assigning field level security to fields extracted from primary sources on a batch basis and compiled into analytical, read-only databases, for ultra-fast, ad-hoc data exploration and faceted navigation on integrated, heterogeneous data sets. The method includes assigning field level security to the extracted fields by combining user selectable inheritance of field level security from source fields that yield the extracted fields, with pinning of inheritance of field level security for the extracted fields to reference fields in the database sources wherein the reference fields are distinct from the extracted fields.

  • Patent number: 10065214
    Abstract: An apparatus, a system and a method for reinforcing a screen has a screen rod assembly extending from a first end to a second end. The screen rod assembly encloses an interior. A spring-loaded plunger is located in the interior and adjusts the length of the screen rod assembly. A ball joint is on the screen rod and defines sections of the screen rod assembly that bend around the ball joint to reduce the length of the screen rod. A sleeve extends from a screen with segments separated by a fold line extending along a width of the screen. The sleeve receives the screen rod assembly to reinforce the screen. In an embodiment, a screen pinch assembly is defined where the sleeve engages a retention clasp of a screen tensioning system that receives the screen. The screen pinch assembly holds the screen in place.

  • Patent number: 9387517
    Abstract: A shaker for separating solids from a drilling fluid includes a top screening deck (130), a flow-back pan (160) positioned beneath the top screening deck (130) for receiving an initially separated drilling fluid from the top screening deck. The flow-back pan (160) is divided into a plurality of channels (A, B, C, D). The shaker further includes a fluid distribution box (210), which includes a plurality of conduits (A, B, C, D). Each channel (A, B, C, D) of the flow-back pan (160) corresponds to one of the plurality of conduits (A, B, C, D) in the fluid distribution box (210) and each channel communicates a stream of the initially separated drilling fluid to the corresponding conduit. The shaker further includes a middle screening deck (140) and a bottom screening deck (150). Each conduit (A, B, C, D) routes the stream of initially separated drilling fluid to a corresponding one of the middle screening deck (140) and the bottom screening deck (150).
