  • Publication number: 20230133426
    Abstract: A fluidized catalytic reactor decouples the catalyst regenerator temperature from the catalyst reactor residence time. Regenerated catalyst is cooled before it contacts reactant feed. The regenerated catalyst may be cooled by heat exchange with oxygen supply gas, spent catalyst or other materials. The process and apparatus are especially useful for fluidized endothermic catalytic reactions.

  • Publication number: 20230139483
    Abstract: A novel method for extra-alveolar vertical augmentation utilizing bone graft and low-magnitude high-frequency vibration. Graft material is placed at an extra-alveolar location along the alveolar ridge. The graft can be used alone or formed into a PRF block to help it maintain volumetric shape during the initial healing process. After insertion into the surgical site, the graft can be covered by a barrier, for example a bioactive amnion/chorion barrier. The flaps are then sutured to attempt to obtain primary closure over the graft and barrier. Low-magnitude high-frequency vibration is applied, resulting vertically augmented alveolar bone.

  • Patent number: 11597259
    Abstract: An ionized air delivery system, such as a vehicle ionized air delivery system, includes an outlet body that is situated within a duct of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The outlet body delivers ions to air flow in the duct of the HVAC system. The outlet body has an outer surface that is generally spherical at a region of the outer surface that confronts the air flow in the duct. Further, the outlet body has an outlet passage with a primary axis that is directed away from an exit of the duct of the HVAC system. Air flow in the duct passes across an exit opening of the outlet body and draws ions out of the outlet passage to mix with the air flow in the duct of the HVAC system.

  • Publication number: 20230025502
    Abstract: Network architectures interface with several real-time streams that control network operation. The network can analyze stream data by storing incoming raw stream data, processing the data, and controlling network operations based thereon. Specific packets, bits, flags, fields, or messages may be targeted, including HL7 ADTs. Data is queued for processing in a FIFO manner to avoid timeline mistakes. The network sets a configuration value based on the data analyzed in this time ordering, and a relational database can be updated in real-time with these values as stream data is incoming. Separate clean-up functions separately manage the database by adjusting the values as they become old. Timeline information is generated and selectively broadcast based on the operations value, potentially with additional information from the targeted data. The network selectively provides this information to users interfaces and displays as dictated by the operating value and information calculated therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20220315845
    Abstract: A process for recovering catalyst from a fluidized catalytic reactor effluent is disclosed comprising reacting a reactant stream by contact with a stream of fluidized catalyst to provide a vaporous reactor effluent stream comprising catalyst and products. The vaporous reactor effluent stream is contacted with a liquid coolant stream to cool it and transfer the catalyst into the liquid coolant stream. A catalyst lean vaporous reactor effluent stream is separated from a catalyst rich liquid coolant stream. A return catalyst stream is separated from the catalyst rich liquid coolant stream to provide a catalyst lean liquid coolant stream, and the return catalyst stream is transported back to said reacting step.
