  • Publication number: 20220379316
    Abstract: A liquification system for an organic waste management system includes a hopper that is oriented vertically such that organic waste added to the hopper is biased by gravity toward a bottom end of the hopper; a fixed grinding plate disposed at the bottom end of the hopper and including grinding elements for grinding and liquefying organic waste; an agitator that is disposed within the hopper and is movable relative to the grinding plate in a first rotational direction that moves organic waste downward toward and against the grinding plate and in a second rotational direction that moves organic waste upward toward a top end of the hopper; a motor configured to selectively move the agitator in the first and second rotational directions under control of the controller; and an outlet through the bottom end of the hopper through which liquified organic waste drains from the hopper.

  • Publication number: 20220372871
    Abstract: A system for adapting drilling of a borehole in a subterranean formation based on comparing a received cuttings weight to an expected cuttings weight. The system comprises a processor; a non-transitory memory; at least one display; and an application stored in the non-transitory memory that, when executed by the processor, determines the received cuttings weight based on data received from a cuttings storage unit (CSU); determines the expected cuttings weight based on a current borehole depth, on a drill bit geometry, and on a cuttings density value; and presents a representation of the received cuttings weight and a representation of the expected cuttings weight on the at least one display, whereby at least one parameter of drilling of the borehole is adapted based on comparing the representation of the received cuttings to the representation of the expected cuttings weight.

  • Patent number: 11494387
    Abstract: A system and method for extrapolating a set of specific representational identifiers that are represented or covered by a generic representational identifier found in a target document. Queries are constructed and performed on a corpus of source documents in which members of the extrapolated set of specific representational identifiers are compared to a database of representational data. By matching representational data in this way, any overlap between the generic representational data and specific instances of the generic representational identifier within the source documents is determined. In a more specific implementation, the system and method reduces the scope of the generic representational identifier such that the reduced scope generic representational identifier encompasses only novel specific representational identifiers.
