  • Patent number: 10591328
    Abstract: An arrangement for transmitting and/or receiving an ultrasonic, wanted signal in a measured medium, comprising a vibration decoupling element for securing at least one ultrasonic transducer in a containment, characterized in that the vibration decoupling element has a platform for securing the vibration decoupling element to a sensor nozzle or to the containment and a second interface for securing an ultrasonic transducer. Between the second interface and the platform a vibration decoupling structural element is arranged, which structural element is embodied as a solid body, which has one or more interfaces with other elements of the vibration decoupling element, especially with the second interface for securing the ultrasonic transducer and/or the platform, and wherein the structural element (11, 39, 55, 75) has an as much as possible spherical-, ellipsoidal-, toroidal- or polyhedral shape.

  • Patent number: 10393169
    Abstract: A hydrodynamic plain bearing having a stator and a rotor rotatable with respect to the stator, a rotor bearing surface being located opposite a counter-surface of the stator in order to generate hydrodynamic pressure. The rotor bearing surface and/or the counter-surface constitutes in a section view, in the context of a section along and through the rotation axis, a continuous bearing contour that is constituted from at least two contour segments. The contour segments are suitable for generating hydrodynamic load capacity in a radial and axial direction. The contour segments are led into one another, by at least one transition segment, in such a way that hydrodynamic load capacity is generatable via the contour segments and the transition segment. The plain bearing is embodied as a multiple-surface plain bearing having two or more lubrication wedges in the region of the contour segments and of the transition segment.

  • Patent number: 10207597
    Abstract: A fuel cell system including: a fuel cell stack; a cathode gas supply system including a cathode supply path for feeding cathode operating gas into the fuel cell stack and a cathode exhaust gas path for discharging cathode exhaust gas out of the fuel cell stack, and a fuel cell cooling system for cooling the fuel cell stack including a coolant path into which the fuel cell stack is integrated so as to transfer heat is provided. It is provided that the cathode gas supply system also includes a turbine arranged in the cathode exhaust gas path, and the coolant path of the fuel cell cooling system in the flow path of the cathode exhaust gas downstream from the turbine is in heat-transferring contact with the cathode exhaust gas path. This achieves a cooling of the coolant by the cathode exhaust gas and a heating of the cathode exhaust gas by the coolant.

  • Patent number: 9754000
    Abstract: According to one general aspect, a method may include replicating, to a software-as-a-service application, a plurality of pieces of master data from a physically remote master database. The method may also include converting the plurality of pieces of master data into one or more pieces of local data of the software-as-a-service application. The method may include changing one or more of either the pieces of master data or the pieces of local data. The method may further include synchronizing the changed pieces of either master data or local data between the remote master database and the software-as-a-service application.
