  • Patent number: 10343940
    Abstract: Feedwater is treated using a combination of techniques, including the integration of a brine solution to promote the formation of reactive and molecular species in the feedwater with electrolytic ionization, the application of electromagnetic fields and the application of plasma fields. The integrated, combined techniques offer an improved treatment of scale forming ions, bacteria and biological contaminants in feedwater.

  • Patent number: 5742730
    Abstract: The system controls one or more VCRs to perform various operations including rapid and accurate tape repositioning from any point to any other point utilizing time codes and VCR performance data. They system includes the ability to encode, record, and reproduce a video signal with time codes and other information such as text commentary, directories to the tape content and VCR commands. Tapes prepared on any implementation of the system can be positioned on any other implementation except that the copying process must translate as appropriate between different signal formats (NTSC, PAL, SECAM), tape formats (VHS, Video 8, etc.) and encoding systems. The system includes a method for characterizing the tape transport performance of individual VCRs in the various tape transport modes including fast forward and rewind and during transitions between transport modes.
