  • Publication number: 20200317397
    Abstract: A pallet for supportively carrying and transporting goods as a unit load in a stable efficient manner is disclosed. The pallet can be configured as a rigid or easily disassemblable compact collapsed structure. Interlocking frame members form an upper planar surface with one or more gap or void areas. A sheet of flexible material operatively secured to the frame is tautly stretched to overlie the void areas and forms a structural part of the upper planar surface to counteract downward load forces applied to the fabric over the pallet surface void areas. The sheet material preferably comprises woven polypropylene material.

  • Patent number: 10752397
    Abstract: A collapsible bulk material container and sleeve configuration thereof are disclosed. The container includes a forming member assembly that provides container rigidity and stability and forms an internal geometric volumetric cavity for containing a bulk material load. A continuously woven sleeve having contiguous woven zones of selectable varied fabric weight and strength engage the forming member and provide the primary containment strength of the container. The sleeve engages the forming member either externally or internally. The sleeve includes a fabric weight zone of greatest strength adjacent the lower portion of the container.

  • Publication number: 20200255182
    Abstract: A collapsible, reusable bulk material container assembly, kit and method for assembling and using same are disclosed. Upper ring and base members are locked together by peripheral post members, forming an upright rigid framework that operatively supports a woven fabric bulk material receiving sleeve. A cover connected to the upper ring seals the container. Intermediate support bands may be attached to and along the post members to resist outwardly directed forces applied to the post members through the sleeve by contained bulk material. The container is reconfigurable to a collapsed storage or shipping module that retainably contains the post members, support bands and woven fabric sleeve. The post members may be segmentable or collapsible for containment within the collapsed module. Component parts of the container assembly are detachable, reusable and recyclable.

  • Patent number: 10722551
    Abstract: The invention relates to polypeptides that comprise a portion of filamentous bacteriophage gene 3 protein (g3p) sufficient to bind to and/or disaggregate amyloid, e.g., the N1-N2 portion of g3p and mutants and fragments thereof, wherein that g3p amino acid sequence has been modified through amino acid deletion, insertion or substitution to remove a putative glycosylation signal. The invention further relates to such polypeptides that are also modified through additional amino acid substitution to be substantially less immunogenic than the corresponding wild-type g3p amino acid sequence when used in vivo. The polypeptides of the invention retain their ability to bind and/or disaggregate amyloid. The invention further relates to the use of these g3p-modified polypeptides in the treatment and/or prevention of diseases associated with misfolding or aggregation of amyloid.

  • Publication number: 20200064465
    Abstract: A real-time aircraft bird congestion indicator system for measuring congestion in an airspace between aircraft and birds uses one or more radars to continuously survey an airspace around an airport or aerodrome and continuously generate aircraft tracks and bird tracks in the airspace. A congestion processor connected to the radar(s) receives the aircraft and bird tracks and processes them to periodically generate a congestion indicator that measures the congestion in the airspace. A display processor connected to the congestion processor receives the congestion indicator which is updated periodically by the congestion processor and displays the congestion indicator to a user, generates an alert if the congestion indicator falls outside set operating limits, and/or sends the congestion indicator or alert to another system.
