  • Publication number: 20210261287
    Abstract: A container with a magnetic self-aligning sleeve includes a container that defines an interior receiving cavity with an opening at one end adapted to receive liquid or solid, and a base at an opposing end. The container additionally includes a sleeve defining a container receiving interior cavity with an opening at one end receiving the container, and a base at an opposing end. Of note, the container receiving cavity has an inside diameter that exceeds an outside diameter of the container. Finally, the container includes a first pair of magnetic arrays. A first one of the first pair of magnetic arrays has a primary polarity and is included with the base of the container. A second one of the first pair of magnetic arrays has a secondary polarity opposite the primary polarity and is included with the base of the sleeve.

  • Publication number: 20170234219
    Abstract: A fuel burner system (10) for a turbine engine (12) configured to operate with syngas fuel, whereby the fuel burner system (10) is configured to reduce nozzle and combustor basket temperatures is disclosed. The fuel burner system (10) may include a plurality of first and second fuel injection ports (16) positioned within a combustor (18), whereby the first fuel injection ports (14) are larger than the second fuel injection ports (16). One or more air injection ports (20) may be aligned with the first fuel injection ports (14). During operation, fuel injected into the combustor (18) from the first fuel injection ports (14) mixes better with the incoming air, causing reduced NOx emissions and lower flame temperatures. Also, the regions between adjacent air injection ports (20), which typically run the hottest, are cooler than conventional combustion system due, in part, to the smaller, second fuel injection ports (16) aligned with regions (22) between adjacent air injection ports (20).

  • Patent number: 9086056
    Abstract: A planetary transmission of a wind turbine includes a ring gear which has an internal toothing and at least one planetary gear which has an external toothing that meshes with the internal toothing of the ring gear. The planetary gear is rotatably supported on an axle by a bearing assembly. The bearing assembly includes at least one outer ring having a radially-outwardly-protruding radial projection and at least one set of rolling elements that roll on the outer ring. The planetary gear has a bore and a recess in the region of an axial end, which recess widens the bore. The outer ring is disposed in the bore of the planetary gear such that the radial projection of the outer ring engages into the recess of the planetary gear.

  • Patent number: 8241497
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for stirring and/or aerating fluids, particularly sewage, having the following cyclically repeated steps: aerating the fluid by means of an immersed aerator for a predetermined first period of time (t1) using an aeration device (1) disposed on a carrier (3, 43) designed as a floodable hollow body (2, 42), the hollow body (2, 42) being flooded and air being brought into the fluid by the aeration device, whereby the potential for nitrification is created in the fluid; stirring the fluid by means of the immersed aerator for a predetermined second period of time (t2), the air infeed by the aeration device (1) being throttled or turned off, and previously flooded hollow body being evacuated in order to fill the hollow body (2, 42) with gar or air, the immersed aerator assuming the function of mixing device in which fluid rises upward, thus mixing the fluid, where in the potential for denitrification is created in the fluid; and an immersed aerator.

  • Patent number: 6786080
    Abstract: A method for assessing the deterioration of motor oil is provided, in which the oil viscosity of the motor oil is measured by a sensor, and the length of an oil-change interval is determined in an evaluating electronics having a display device. According to the present invention, it is provided that a temperature sensor for the simultaneous determination of the oil temperature is assigned to the sensor for measuring the oil viscosity, and the oil viscosity and oil temperature are measured in the cooling phase of the engine after it has been switched off.
