  • Publication number: 20160051993
    Abstract: A method of separating heavy mineral particles, such as zircon, monazites, xeno time etc., from a sample of quartz crystal powder, comprises the steps of: a. conditioning the quartz powder suspected of containing heavy mineral particles as an aqueous pulp using a froth-flotation agent; b. subjecting the conditioned pulp to froth flotation to obtain a tailing; c. combining the tailing with an aqueous solution having a density greater than that of quartz and less than that of a heavy mineral which it is desired to separate; and d. centrifuging the combination. The separated heavy mineral crystals can then be characterised using a micro-analysis technique.

  • Patent number: 8538648
    Abstract: A method for operating a drive device for adjusting an automated clutch in a motor vehicle. The motor vehicle has a control device by which at least one control of the drive device and one capture of measurement data of a clutch travel sensor takes place for determining the setting of the automated clutch. The drive device has a drive motor with a drive connection to a displaceable element to be positioned. A travel range of the displaceable element is monitored and a referencing procedure is performed cyclically after a prescribed time and is followed by a plausibility check if referencing is permitted at the point in time.

  • Publication number: 20040143383
    Abstract: A method for controlling and/or adjusting a torque transmission system in the drive chain of a vehicle, especially a motor vehicle, wherein a clutch torque is modified according to a starting resistance of the vehicle in order to provide a strategy for the start of said vehicle. According to the invention, said strategy is modified in such a way that the progression of said clutch torque is adapted to a starting situation.

  • Patent number: 6594572
    Abstract: A motor vehicle with an automated clutch in its drive train has a clutch control device for controlling the automated clutch and at least a further control device. The clutch control device and the further control device can be activated by means of an activation element which, when the ignition is switched on, sends an ignition signal VZ to the clutch control device and to the further control device. The clutch control device is or remains activated if at least one of the ignition signal VZ and an activity signal of the further control device is present.

  • Patent number: 6199064
    Abstract: A method of sorting a block of data is provided which includes ordering a plurality of data values into a source data block. A non-unique sort order, based on a limited number of comparisons of the data values in the source data block, is established and, after the comparisons, a unique sort order of the data values based on position of the data values in the source data block is established. The method further includes restoring the source data block from the unique sort order. An apparatus for sorting a block of data is also provided, the apparatus including, inter alia, a first mechanism for calculating a non-unique sort order based on a limited number of equal comparisons of the data values in the source data block and a second mechanism for establishing, after the comparisons, a unique sort order of the data values based on position of the data values in the source data block. The apparatus further includes a third mechanism for restoring the source data block from the established sort order.
