  • Patent number: 10352622
    Abstract: A direct evaporative cooler includes a liquid delivery system and an assembly of two or more plates. At least one plate of the assembly of two or more plates may include a top surface having a wicking material with an exposed surface for receiving a liquid thereon from the liquid delivery system, and one or more masks lining a portion of the exposed surface. The one or more masks may be impermeable to the liquid thereby preventing the liquid from evaporating through the one or more masks, and the one or more masks may be sized and shaped such that a wick rate of the liquid on the exposed surface exceeds an evaporation rate of the liquid.

  • Publication number: 20180293880
    Abstract: The present application provides a remote control kit for retrofitting controllers for multiple types and brands of vehicle-mounted apparatus (e.g., snow plows and salt spreaders) for wireless control. The kit includes a remote control with a plurality of input elements for controlling the operation of a vehicle-mounted apparatus and a wireless transmitter. The kit further includes an apparatus communicator with a wireless receiver for receiving wireless signals corresponding to different apparatus operations from the wireless transmitter of the remote control. The apparatus communicator connects to the controller of the vehicle-mounted apparatus so that control signals can be transmitted to the controller of the vehicle-mounted apparatus to execute desired apparatus operations.

  • Patent number: 9851155
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a plate for an evaporative cooler is disclosed. The plate may comprise a wicking material with an exposed surface and a sealed surface opposite the exposed surface. An impermeable barrier may be coupled to the sealed surface. One or more masks may line a portion of the exposed surface, wherein the masks may comprise an impermeable material. In some embodiments, the mask may be a strip of impermeable material and may be coupled to a flat area of the top surface. In further embodiments, the one or more masks may align with a liquid wick path of the wicking material. In further embodiments, the one or more masks may line the edge of perforations that pass at least partially through the plate.

  • Patent number: 9729634
    Abstract: A distributed storage system that includes memory hosts. Each memory host includes non-transitory memory and a network interface controller in communication with the memory and servicing remote direct memory access requests from clients. The memory receives a data transfer rate from each client in communication with the memory host through remote direct memory access. Each memory host also includes a data processor in communication with the memory and the network interface controller. The data processor executes a host process that reads each received client data transfer rate, determines a throttle data transfer rate for each client, and writes each throttle data transfer rate to non-transitory memory accessible by the clients through remote direct memory access.

  • Patent number: 6797454
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for thermal processing a photosensitive element includes heating a composition layer on a flexible substrate to a melt temperature of an unirradiated area of the composition layer and maintaining the flexible substrate at a temperature below the melt temperature while pressing a heated absorbent layer against the heated composition layer, and repeating these steps for multiple cycles. A further embodiment of the method includes a step of cooling the flexible substrate and layer laminate on each cycle to maintain the flexible substrate at the desired temperature below that of the heated composition layer.

  • Publication number: 20030028947
    Abstract: A garment in the form of a knee pad or elbow pad protects a wearer during athletic activities. A toughening patch is applied to the outer surface of a nylon shell with the application of heat and pressure. A mixture of Teflon powder and plastisol ink is applied to a release liner and is applied to the nylon shell with the application of heat and pressure. Excess ink is removed from the patch with a blotting paper to impart a relatively low coefficient of friction to the patch.

  • Patent number: 5797865
    Abstract: An ankle restraint is made of plastic material and includes a pair of splint plates pivotally joined to struts of a stirrup member. Stops carried on the splint plates interfere with the range of motion of the struts, thereby limiting movement of the wearer's ankle. The stop members have faces engaging edges of the struts and have a height matching the thickness of the struts. Polypropylene or other plastic materials may be used to achieve a desired compromise between a desired flexural modulus and a desired impact strength.
