  • Publication number: 20210010992
    Abstract: An automated wetstock management system can include a plurality of sensors disposed in a fuel storage facility, the plurality of sensors configured to sense fuel data characterizing one or more aspects of the fuel storage facility, and a wetstock management server communicatively coupled to the plurality of sensors. The wetstock management server can process the fuel data to detect whether the fuel data satisfies an exception indicative of an operational issue of the fuel storage facility based on one or more predefined rules or models stored in the wetstock management server. In some embodiments, the wetstock management server can generate a workflow for assisting a user of the fuel storage facility to resolve the operational issue. In some embodiments, the wetstock management server can assign a risk category to the exception and electronically transmit an alert characterizing the operational issue to the user.

  • Patent number: 9695491
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a beneficiation process for low grade uranium ore, wherein the process comprises a primary beneficiation stage comprising: wet scrubbing the low grade uranium ore to separate the low grade ore into a fine fraction and a coarse fraction; screening the fine fraction according to a size separation parameter to provide an undersize fraction and an oversize fraction, wherein the uranium predominantly reports to the undersize fraction; and separating the undersize fraction to produce an intermediate uranium concentrate. The intermediate uranium concentrate may be further processed in a secondary beneficiation stage to produce a high grade uranium concentrate.

  • Publication number: 20090128272
    Abstract: A magnet array for use with NMR signal acquisition apparatus uses rod-shaped magnets located at the corners of a square. The square lies in the (x-y) plane of a three dimensional Cartesian coordinate system and the long axes of the magnets extend generally along the z-direction such that the polarisation vectors of the magnets lie substantially in the x-y plane. The magnets are arranged to create a substantially uniform magnetic field B0 in a sample volume at the centre of the polygon. The widths of the magnets are less than the length of the sides of the square so that there is a gap between magnets allowing lateral access in the x-y plane to the sample volume. Each magnet may be rotatable about its longitudinal axis to change one and/or both the B0 field direction and magnitude in the sample volume. At least one magnet may be displaceable in a direction orthogonal to its longitudinal axis to change one and/or both the B0 field direction and magnitude in the sample volume.

  • Publication number: 20060081212
    Abstract: An obstruction is employed in a combustion chamber of an internal combustion engine. The obstruction is located within the chamber to generate turbulence and break-up or disrupt the soot rich zone within a directly injected quantity of fuel that is burning. More specifically, a ring disrupts fuel jets directly injected into the combustion chamber that impact on or are influence by the ring. The ring can be suspended from the piston or from the fire deck. Post-type obstructions help generate turbulence and are also targeted at disrupting the soot rich zone of the burning fuel jets. A method involves disrupting the soot rich zone or reducing soot generated within the combustion chamber and increasing burn rate by impacting the fuel jets on an obstruction within the chamber.

  • Publication number: 20050224060
    Abstract: A method of operating an internal combustion engine employs exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) in combination with directly injected gaseous fuels that are burned within the engine in a stratified combustion mode. An engine that employs EGR includes an injector adapted to provide a high pressure quantity of fuel into a combustion chamber within a given pressure range, at a given angle and through a nozzle hole size to help provide for EGR tolerance and, consequently, reduce emissions.
