  • Publication number: 20130317898
    Abstract: The invention involves using a visual verification pattern on a mobile device to redeem a coupon. A user installs a coupon presentation application on a user device and configures an account and downloads and stores coupons on the application. The user approaches a point of sale terminal at a merchant location to purchase a product. The user accesses the coupon and indicates to the coupon distribution system that distributed the coupon that a purchase is imminent and a verification of a coupon will be required. The system accesses the coupon visual verification pattern configured by the merchant and transmits the pattern to the application. The application displays the pattern on the mobile device display for presentation to the merchant. The merchant can recognize the visual verification pattern and enter the discount or rebate associated with the coupon into the terminal along with the purchase details.

  • Publication number: 20130122140
    Abstract: A highly alkaline, ultra-low sodium antioxidant mineral additive of saturated tripotassium phosphate may be used as an additive to dosages such as concentrated drops, tablets, capsules, bottled water, beverages or other dosage forms. The alkaline antioxidant mineral additive further includes organic potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium, selenium and 79 trace minerals from ancient sea salt. The trace minerals are taken from the low-sodium technically-processed magnesium chloride marine deposits and chelated with amino acids. The amino acids are from a non-animal source which is suitable for vegetarian and persons who are allergic to animal proteins. The alkaline antioxidant mineral additive, which is considered nutritionally nil in sodium content, can be used as a concentrated aqueous drop or dried and used as an additive for dietary supplement dosage forms including tablets, capsules, bottled water, beverages and others.

  • Publication number: 20110159211
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention contemplate a shadow ring that provides increased or decreased and more uniform deposition on the edge of a wafer. By removing material from the top and/or bottom surfaces of the shadow ring, increased edge deposition and bevel coverage can be realized. In one embodiment, the material on the bottom surface is reduced by providing a recessed slot on the bottom surface. By increasing the amount of material of the shadow ring, the edge deposition and bevel coverage is reduced. Another approach to adjusting the deposition at the edge of the wafer includes increasing or decreasing the inner diameter of the shadow ring. The material forming the shadow ring may also be varied to change the amount of deposition at the edge of the wafer.

  • Publication number: 20090173697
    Abstract: Monochloramine is efficiently manufactured by introducing controlled quantities of an ammonia source and a chlorine source in a small side-stream of water in a small diameter pipe under turbulent flow conditions. The ammonia source and chlorine source can be injected in either order and are separated by a sufficient distance to ensure that the first chemical is adequately diffused throughout the water prior to the injection of the second chemical. A sufficient length of a mixing chamber insures that turbulent flow is maintained for a length of time sufficient to thoroughly mix the two chemicals to produce monochloramine. This mixing technique allows for the manufacture of high concentrations of monochloramine at atmospheric pressure without off gassing.

  • Publication number: 20080006587
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed for injection of carbon dioxide into a process water stream. The method and apparatus allow carbon dioxide injection using any line pressure as it normally exists in a target water stream and produces superior mixing and carbon dioxide transfer results. The benefits of this method and device significantly improve the economics of using carbon dioxide gas to control pH and at the same time reduces the negative impact on the environment caused by the off gassing of carbon dioxide that is not effectively mixed into solution.

  • Publication number: 20050252391
    Abstract: A printing device for seamless printing on a cloth is provided. A design is transferred from a print medium to the cloth. The device includes a print cylinder and a heater heating the print cylinder. The print medium is wrapped around the print cylinder, and the cloth is wrapped around the print medium. The heating of the print cylinder transfers the design to the cloth. The cloth is also seamless. The transfer of the design is done by sublimation of dye, which forms the design, induced by heating of the print cylinder. The print medium is a sublimation paper. An optional cylindrical cover is also provided. The cylindrical cover is placed around the print cylinder, and the print medium and the cloth are wrapped around the cylindrical cover.

    Abstract: A method of printing design seamlessly on clothing, and clothing obtained thereby are provided. The method includes steps of placing a cylindrical cover around a print cylinder, placing a print medium, on which a design is printed, around the cylindrical cover, placing a cloth around print medium, and heating the print medium so that the print medium and the cloth are heated and the design is transferred from the print medium to the cloth. The transfer of the design is done by sublimation of dye, which forms the design, induced by the step of heating. The cloth is subsequently cooled and flipped.
