  • Publication number: 20220307493
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are disclosed for a flap valve in a diaphragm pump. The flap valve includes a body and a self-centering hinge portion. A front portion of the body includes a front surface having a raised portion and a recessed portion. The front surface is configured to form a seal with a surface of the pump when the body is in a closed position, the surface of the pump being at an inlet or an outlet of a pumping chamber. The body is configured to allow a downstream flow of a fluid when the flap valve is in an open position. The self-centering hinge portion is operably connected to the body. The self-centering hinge portion has a dynamically changing longitudinal axis. The body is configured to simultaneously translate and rotate about the dynamically changing longitudinal axis to form the seal.

  • Patent number: 11443320
    Abstract: A transaction processing system capable of processing transactions and implementing a flexible circuit breaker process during a cyber event. A circuit breaker module initiates a circuit breaker event (CBE), an account identification module identifies one or more affected accounts, and a rule generation module generates conditional rules for evaluating each transaction presented to a transaction processing module. If a transaction presented to the transaction processing module satisfies the conditional rule, the transaction is not processed. Transactions not processed are stored in memory and groups of impacted transactions are assigned to resource modules based on common characteristics. The resource module determines if impacted transactions should be allowed to process. A message notification module monitors and receives notifications and updates a dashboard display to allow users to visualize the impact of a cyber event.

  • Publication number: 20210298188
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for coordinating the installation and removal a motor control center subunit with the power connection and interruption thereof. A system of interlocks and indicators causes an operator to install a motor control center subunit into a motor control center, and connect supply and control power thereto, in a particular order. Embodiments of the invention may prevent actuation of line contacts of the bucket, and shield the line contacts, until the bucket is fully installed in the motor control center. Other embodiments also prevent circuit breaker closure until the line contacts are engaged with a bus of the motor control center.

  • Publication number: 20200377970
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to a process for thiosulfate leaching of a precious metal-containing material and recovering a precious metal from a pregnant leach solution using a resin extractant. The precious metal is eluted from the loaded resin optionally using an eluant comprising trithionate. Various process improvements include maintaining the thiosulfate-containing leach solution substantially free of thiols and amines, maintaining a concentration of a sulfide in the thiosulfate leach solution of no more than about 100 ppm, recycling the barren resin free of contact with a sulfide, bisulfide, and polysulfide, and/or maintaining a concentration of tetrathionates, trithionates, sulfur-oxygen anions, and/or combinations thereof within about 50% of a concentration level of the one or more of tetrathionates, trithionates, sulfur-oxygen anions, the combinations thereof in the precious metal-containing solution before contact with the recycled barren resin.
