  • Publication number: 20190234191
    Abstract: A header with associated lubricator is for fluid handling at the wellhead of an oil and gas well where a plunger/lubricator lift system is deployed, and provides a novel compact lubricator with attached header which can replace a conventional wellhead flow-tee without modifying or moving other wellhead equipment to accommodate the new lubricator and header replacing the old flow-tee. A sub seal is provided at the header/lubricator attachment(s). The header with associated lubricator encloses a conduit with seals in the attachment interfaces between the header and lubricator or between the header and exit attachment means, where the conduit may also comprise a means of flow restriction through machined geometry or by retaining a reduced diameter or valve component through various means of attachment. The flow restrictor means may also be serviced via service access means provided in the header or lubricator exterior wall.

  • Publication number: 20190108287
    Abstract: A system comprising a user interface and a controller operating to receive an input at a control interface. The system generates a control signal associated with the control interface. The system operates one or more filters to select a first set of food items from a proximal food distributor database and a menu rules control. The system generates a menu generation control signal utilizing the first set of food items selected and the menu rules control. The system sends the menu generation control signal to a menu generator and in response receive a menu control signal from the menu generator, the menu control signal associated with a second set of food items in the proximal food distributor database, wherein the second set of food items is a subset of the first set of food items. The system alters the machine display based on the menu control signal.

  • Publication number: 20070044593
    Abstract: Open-end ratcheting socket wrench, unidirectional in rotation, reversible by flipping the wrench body to its other side. The socket has a slot on one side to fit over the cable, tubing, or pipe being worked on. There are three pawls so a minimum of two are in contact with ratchet gear at all times since one will be disengaged with the gear when the open face is adjacent to the pawl. The intended use of the tool is to loosen or tighten a fitting attached to a cable, tubing, or pipe especially in a recessed area without having to reposition the wrench onto the fitting using a ratcheting action. The socket is then backed away from the work piece, the slot in the socket realigned with the slot in the body and the wrench and socket removed from the cable, tubing, or pipe.
