  • Publication number: 20100330633
    Abstract: Processes and systems for production of bioproducts such as biofuels are provided.

  • Patent number: 6635167
    Abstract: An instrument (20) has a well (28a-b) for receiving a dry cell (75), an opening (78) through which a first connector (74) is exposed to the well (28a-b), and a boss (76) adjacent the opening (78). The boss (76) precludes the wrong terminal of the dry cell (75) from engaging the first connector (74) when the dry cell (75) is inserted into the well (28a-b) in incorrect orientation. A second connector (80) includes a base (81), a first leg (82) resiliently connected to and extending away from the base portion, a second leg (84) resiliently connected to and extending away from the first leg (82), and a third leg (86) resiliently connected to and extending away from the second leg (84) and toward the first leg (82). A display (42) for the instrument (20) has a lens (90) having a substantially transparent substrate with a polyurethane coating. The instrument housing has first and second portions.

  • Patent number: 5327964
    Abstract: A method is provided for securing a wellbore tool assembly to a wellbore tubular member, which includes a number of method steps. The wellbore tubular member is provided, and defines a surface with a substantially cylindrical shape having a selected tubular diameter. A wellbore tool assembly is likewise provided, and includes a plurality of ring-shaped components, with at least one ring-shaped component defining a cylindrical surface having a selected ring diameter which differs from the tubular diameter of the wellbore tubular member. A plurality of radial groove members and radial land members are formed on at least one of the cylindrical surface of the wellbore tubular member and the cylindrical surface of the at least one ring-shaped component of the wellbore tool assembly. The wellbore tubular member and the at least one ring-shaped component of the wellbore tool assembly are urged to differing thermal conditions to cause the tubular diameter and the ring diameter to become substantially equal.

  • Patent number: 4159909
    Abstract: A method for the magnetron sputtering of ferromagnetic material. An alloy of the ferromagnetic material is formed such that the alloy retains the desired characteristics of the material but the alloy has a Curie temperature that is below the sputtering temperature. In particular, the method can be applied to nickel by alloying the nickel with copper, platinum, or tin.

  • Patent number: 4150393
    Abstract: A low parasitic microwave transistor package is provided including a metal header formed from a base member and having a cylindrical center portion; a metallized ceramic insulator formed in an annular ring which is attached to the metal header and surrounding the center portion thereof. A shallow channel is provided in the surface of the pedestal or center portion of the metal header in which a metallized beryllia insulator is attached. Metal leads are attached to the ceramic insulator. The metallized beryllia insulator is suitable for a semiconductor die chip to be attached to the outward surface thereof such that any one of the preferred electrodes of the semiconductor chip can be attached to the header, by stitch bonding, through a very low inductance, low resistance connection.

  • Patent number: 3943556
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a low cost high frequency transistor package including a metal header, a metallized apertured ceramic insulator affixed to the header, a metallized beryllia insulator, and two cylindrical bonding rails within the aperture of the ceramic insulator attached to the header. The two bonding rails may be segments of wire. Metal leads are attached to the ceramic insulator. A very low inductance path through the bonding rails to the header results.
