  • Patent number: 10365982
    Abstract: Establishing a synchronous replication relationship between two or more storage systems, including: identifying, for a dataset, a plurality of storage systems across which the dataset will be synchronously replicated; configuring one or more data communications links between each of the plurality of storage systems to be used for synchronously replicating the dataset; exchanging, between the plurality of storage systems, timing information for at least one of the plurality of storage systems; and establishing, in dependence upon the timing information for at least one of the plurality of storage systems, a synchronous replication lease, the synchronous replication lease identifying a period of time during which the synchronous replication relationship is valid.

  • Patent number: 7943014
    Abstract: An integrated combustion chamber and fluidized bed pyrolysis reactor. In one embodiment, the combustion chamber is cylindrical and the pyrolysis reactor is provided annularly about the combustion chamber with an annular wall that provides a common surface for heat transfer. A lift tube in fluid communication with the pyrolysis reactor is provided within the combustion chamber for circulating biomass and an inert fluidizable media upwardly through the lift tube; this advantageously increases heat transfer and leads to more rapid pyrolysis. The media and biomass exit the lift tube into either a freeboard area of the pyrolysis reactor or into a low density region of the fluidized bed. A condensable gaseous product is produced during pyrolysis that has economic value. The apparatus and process are especially well suited to the pyrolysis of low density agricultural biomass. The apparatus is compact and particularly well suited to mobile operation.

  • Patent number: 4608406
    Abstract: A stable aqueous epoxy resin dispersion, useful as a coating composition when cured, is made by dispersing in water the reaction product of a diglycidyl ether of a dihydric phenol, a dihydric phenol, a diglycidyl ether of a polyoxyalkylene glycol and an alkyl phenol-formaldehyde novolac resin.

  • Patent number: 4381120
    Abstract: Desensitization of carbonless copy systems is provided by contacting an electron-accepting, color-reactant material capable of reacting with a substantially colorless chromogenic compound to form a visible image with a desensitizing agent comprising, in combination, a non-volatile, polyoxygenated compound and a strong chelating agent. In this manner, acid-reactive clay coatings typically used in carbonless copy paper systems are effectively desensitized and prevented from reacting with conventional chromogens, such as crystal violet lactone and benzoyl leuco methylene blue.

  • Patent number: 4264742
    Abstract: Opacifying agents of improved structural integrity and light scattering ability are disclosed. These agents are composed of hollow, substantially spherical agglomerates having discontinuous walls composed of solid, spherical microparticles. The microparticles are produced by admixing an aqueous, partially condensed aldehyde condensation product with an oily non-solvent material and an emulsifying agent to produce a water-in-oil emulsion. Polymerization acid catalyst is then admixed with the emulsion to produce the discrete, substantially spherical and opaque, solid microparticles. After inverting the emulsion to oil-in-water form and adding oil-soluble resin adhesive, elevated temperature is used to cure the adhesive while evaporatively removing residual oily non-solvent. This yields improved agglomerate opacifying agents of high physical stability.

  • Patent number: 4250076
    Abstract: These compositions comprise sand, a novolac binder resin and a hot distortion additive comprising a modified novolac resin which is prepared by co-reacting an alkylphenol with phenol and formaldehyde or by post-alkylating the novolac resin by means of alkylating compounds selected from alkenes, vinyl benzenes and unsaturated alicyclic compounds.

  • Patent number: 4239646
    Abstract: Microspheric opacifying agents are provided by admixing an aqueous, partially condensed, aldehyde condensation product with an oily material containing an emulsifying agent thereby forming a water-in-oil emulsion, admixing an amphiphilic acid catalyst with the emulsion and polymerizing the condensation product to form discrete, substantially spherical, opaque, solid particles. Additionally, the solid particles may be separated from the oily continuous phase and admixed with water for the further removal of oily material, and thereby causing the formation of spherical agglomerates or "super particles" having a substantially greater opacity than the aforesaid discrete particles. The super particles are hollow, substantially spherical particles having substantially spherical, discontinuous walls composed of agglomerated substantially spherical particles.

  • Patent number: 4199618
    Abstract: Hidden entries are provided on a receptor sheet by applying the desired intelligence to the sheet with a chemical densensitizing agent capable of preventing the formation of a visible image on the receptor sheet when the sheet is contacted with a mark-producing agent. The resulting visible image is provided in the form of a negative wherein the background of the visible image is provided by the mark-forming agent, while the foreground of the visible image is the densensitized portion of the sheet. The mark-forming system comprises a chromogenic composition which is applied to the surface of the receptor sheet adjacent the desensitized portion thereof. The coreactant for the chromogen may either be present on the receptor sheet prior to providing the hidden image thereon by means of a chemical desensitizer, or may be admixed with the chromogen prior to application thereof to the surface of the sheet.

  • Patent number: 4157983
    Abstract: Capsules containing water-dispersible material are disclosed. They are formed from an admixture of low HLB emulsifier, oily water-immiscible solvent for the emulsifier urea-formaldehyde prepolymer water-dispersible material, and water. This admixture is agitated to form a water-in-oil emulsion to which amphiphatic acidic catalyst is added to cure the prepolymer. After curing to solid form, the capsules are separated from the remaining liquid of the admixture.

  • Patent number: 4154462
    Abstract: A transfer sheet is provided having a substrate coated with pressure-rupturable microcapsules containing an oil and an oil-soluble dye intermediate and a particulate oil-absorptive material which is non-reactive with the dye intermediate and is situated with respect to said microcapsules such that oil released by the microcapsules is absorbed thereby. The concentration of oil absorptive material is sufficient to permit writing on the coated substrate without interference from oil released by ruptured microcapsules but less than that which materially reduces the transfer of oily solution from ruptured microcapsules to an underlying copy sheet.

  • Patent number: 4087284
    Abstract: A process for preparing color-developer coatings in which an oily solution of an acidic, organic material is emulsified in water and an insoluble, particulate, oil-adsorbent material is dispersed in the emulsion. The resulting emulsion-dispersion may be coated onto a receptor such as a paper substrate or other receiving surface and dried. The product resulting from the process is an enhanced color-developer coating for use in pressure-sensitive copy systems.
