  • Publication number: 20170284385
    Abstract: A mounting assembly mounts a fluid end unit to a power end unit and includes first and second end members, and a coupling. A first end of the first end member is a threaded shaft configured to be received in a mounting aperture of a power end unit. A first end of the second end member is a threaded shaft configured to be received in a mounting aperture of a fluid end unit corresponding to the mounting aperture of the power end unit. The coupling couples and extends the first end member and the second end member and may be removed therefrom without changing a relative position of the second end member to the first end member.

  • Patent number: 9302380
    Abstract: A seat puller removes a valve seat or bushing from a structure such as a fluid pump. The seat puller may be formed of a shaft having a threaded adjusting nut fastening region, a central shaft region, a land region, a cone shaft region and an end stopper region. The seat puller includes a slide lock jaw held onto the shaft at the land region by a spring. The spring permits the slide lock jaw to open slightly and thereby permits the slide lock jaw to slide down the shaft to the cone shaft region. This causes the slide lock jaw to open and engage the internal and bottom surfaces of a seat with its outer circumference, thereby permitting the seat puller to remove the seat from the structure in which it is seated.

  • Publication number: 20070218320
    Abstract: A metal matrix composite was fabricated by adding particles of calcium hexaboride to a metal of aluminum, magnesium or titanium and their alloys. The resulting metal matrix composite is light weight has improved strength, increased elastic modulus and reduced thermal coefficient of expansion, thus making the metal matrix composite more useful in industry. A metal matrix composite is also formed by mixing particles of aluminum, magnesium, titanium or combinations thereof with particles of silicon lexaboride, calcium hexaboride, silicon tetraboride, calcium tetraboride or combinations thereof. The blended particles are processed according to powder metallurgical techniques to produce a metal matrix composite material.

  • Publication number: 20070091399
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and system for increasing the holographic storage capacity of a holographic recording medium using an irradiance-tailoring (e.g., optical) element by changing the irradiance profile of the modulated object beam (e.g., by imparting motion to an irradiance-tailoring element and/or the holographic recording medium and/or by reconfiguring (e.g., periodically) the phase profile of a stationary irradiance-tailoring (e.g., optical) element) to minimize the effects of fixed-pattern noise buildup from occurring in the holographic recording medium.

  • Publication number: 20070086781
    Abstract: Bidirectional wavelength cross connects include a plurality of ports, each configured to receive an input optical signals, each input optical signal having a plurality of spectral bands. At least one of the plurality of ports is disposed to simultaneously transmit an output optical signal having at least one of the spectral bands. A plurality of wavelength routing elements are configured to selectively route input optical signal spectral bands to output optical signals.

  • Patent number: 7123700
    Abstract: A communications system includes call devices that are capable of communicating over a packet-based data network. The packet-based data network may be according to an Internet Protocol (IP), for example. The call devices are capable of performing call communications, such as according to a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) or an H.323 Recommendation. Each of the call devices includes a user interface that is customizable to one or multiple configurations depending on which user is using the call device. User identification information is communicated from the call device to a proxy or server that has access to a database. The identification information is used to locate configuration information associated with the user. The corresponding user configuration information is then retrieved from the database and communicated back to the call device to configure the call device user interface.

  • Publication number: 20050041914
    Abstract: An optical routing apparatus and method that achieves improved optical signal reintegration is disclosed. The optical routing apparatus includes an input port, such as may be provided at the end of an optical fiber. The signal may be routed to one or more of a plurality of output ports, such as may also be provided at the end of an optical fiber, each output port being configured to receive the optical signal. The routing between the input port and the output ports is accomplished with an optical switching arrangement that may shift among multiple distinct optical configurations, each configuration being such as to direct the optical signal to one of the output ports. The ports are positioned such that the input port and at least one of the output ports lie in different parallel planes, each such plane being orthogonal to a path along which the optical signal is provided by the input port or received by one of the output ports.
