  • Publication number: 20190374891
    Abstract: A support structure for an interior volume of a construction of pleated media is operably oriented in the interior volume and structurally supports the media. The support structure can pass directly through an innermost 60% of the interior volume. It can have a void volume not more than 80%. It can be inner liner-free and extend in a non-curved path. It can include a first sheet and second sheet of porous material. At least a first brace construction secures the first sheet and second sheet together and in spaced apart, opposing relation. The support structure can include a pleated construction having pleats extending in a direction non-parallel and angled to the direction of pleats of the pleated filter media. The support structure can be molded spacers.

  • Patent number: 10460036
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to transferred learning from a first language (e.g., a source language for which a semantic parser has been defined) to a second language (e.g., a target language for which a semantic parser has not been defined). A system may use knowledge from a trained model in one language to model another language. For example, the system may transfer knowledge of a semantic parser from a first (e.g., source) language to a second (e.g., target) language. Such transfer of knowledge may occur and be useful when the first language has sufficient training data but the second language has insufficient training data. The foregoing transfer of knowledge may extend the semantic parser for multiple languages (e.g., the first language and the second language).

  • Patent number: 10427078
    Abstract: The current technology relates to a filter element having pleated filter media. The pleated filter media defines an elongate tubular structure having an inner passageway. The pleated filter media has outer pleat folds and inner pleat folds each extending from a first end to a second end of the elongate tubular structure. The filter element has no more than one elongate brace disposed in the inner passageway, extending between the first end and the second end. A plurality of support ribs are coupled to the elongate brace, where each support rib has a connector defining an interference-fit with the elongate brace. Each support rib partially defines the inner passageway and has an outer support surface that abuts a substantial portion of the inner pleat folds.

  • Publication number: 20170252691
    Abstract: A filter element includes a construction of pleated filter media defining an interior volume. First and second opposite end caps are secured to opposite ends of the filter media. A support structure supports the filter media and is operably oriented in the interior volume. The support structure extends from the first opposing interior face to the second opposing interior face. The support structure is provided to extend less than a full extension between the first end cap and second end cap.

  • Patent number: 8877057
    Abstract: A filter for use with bulk filtration includes filters arranged in parallel flow and a manifold arrangement. The manifold arrangement has a first pipe within a second pipe. An inlet channel conveys unfiltered fluid to the filters, and an outlet channel conveys filtered fluid from the filters. The inlet channel is an interior volume between an outside surface of the first pipe and an inside surface of the second pipe. The outlet channel is an interior volume of the first pipe. Methods of servicing and filtering are provided.

  • Publication number: 20120312734
    Abstract: The web of the invention can comprise a super absorbent layer that can act as an moisture sensitive fuel shut-off valve, absorbent, adsorbant or reactant. The web of the invention can comprise a super absorbent fabric or layer made of a superabsorbent particle or fiber. Fluid, gas or liquid, that flows through or by the assemblies of the invention can have any gas, liquid or solid material dispersed or dissolved in the fluid interact with the super absorbent particulate. The structures of the invention can act simply as flow-by reactive, absorptive, or adsorptive layers with no filtration properties, or the structures of the invention can be assembled into filters.

  • Patent number: 8263214
    Abstract: The web of the invention can comprise a super absorbent layer that can act as an moisture sensitive fuel shut-off valve, absorbent, adsorbant or reactant. The web of the invention can comprise a super absorbent fabric or layer made of a superabsorbent particle or fiber. The web can comprise a nanofiber layer having dispersed within the nanofiber layer a super absorbent particulate and optionally a second particulate material that can act as an absorbent, adsorbant or reactant. Fluid, gas or liquid, that flows through or by the assemblies of the invention can have any gas, liquid or solid material dispersed or dissolved in the fluid interact with the super absorbent particulate. If needed these materials can also react with, be absorbed by, or adsorbed onto, the active particulate within the nanofiber layer.
