    Abstract: A frac sleeve system includes a well casing with a tubular wall having a frac port defined there through for hydraulic fracturing. A sleeve within the well casing includes a sleeve body. The sleeve is mounted for axial movement relative to the tubular wall of the well casing among three positions including: a closed position in which the sleeve body blocks the frac port, a frac position in which the sleeve body clears the frac port so the frac port is open for hydraulic fracturing there through, and a production position in which the sleeve at least partially blocks the frac port.

  • Publication number: 20200360966
    Abstract: A high-voltage pulser circuit for Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) coils using a Capacitive Discharge push-pull converter. The present invention relates in particular to the operation of the converter into an Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) differential coil. The present invention reduces ringing of the coil current resulting in a smaller blind zone and a well-defined broadband ultrasonic wave from the coil. The pulser can be used to generate one or more cycles and work in either pulse-echo (same transmitter and receiver) or pitch-catch (different transmitter and receiver).

  • Patent number: 10839106
    Abstract: Aspects extend to methods, systems, and computer program products for creating workflow instances. Workflow templates define different functionalities, such as, for example, between fixed and variable functionality or between functionality authored by different co-authors. Different functionalities defined in a workflow template can be configured to interoperate to provide workflow instances. Functionality defined within a workflow template can be instantiated in a workflow instance based on properties corresponding to the functionality. The properties can include connections with credentials for accessing resources used by the functionality. Connections can obscure access to credentials so that processes outside of a workflow instance cannot use the credentials to access resources.

  • Patent number: 10830553
    Abstract: A crossbow includes a rail assembly and a limb assembly that can be assembled together and disassembled from one another. A release member is rigidly attached to one assembly and a retention member is attached to the other assembly. When the crossbow is assembled the release member is in a retained position; when the crossbow is disassembled the release member is removed from its retained position. In a release position the retention member permits movement of the release member into or out of the retained position; in a retention position the retention member prevents movement of the release member out of the retained position. The release and/or retention members can be adjusted to alter the force urging together the rail and limb assemblies. The retention member can be moved between the release and retention positions without using any tool.

  • Publication number: 20200351621
    Abstract: Methods and techniques are described for supporting location services for a user equipment (UE) in a Fifth Generation wireless network in which a base station, such as a gNB or ng-eNB, broadcasts a Positioning Reference Signal (PRS) in a plurality of different directions and at a plurality of different times. A PRS muting configuration is used in which PRS is muted using a time based and angle based pattern to prevent interference between beams transmitted by other base stations and/or to prevent interference between beams transmitted simultaneously by a single base station. The time based and angle based muting pattern, for example, may provide an indication for each direction in the plurality of different directions and for each time in the plurality of different times and as to whether the PRS is transmitted or muted by the base station.

  • Patent number: 10825008
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus identify downhole equipment and correlate input data with the equipment to improve planning and/or inventory operations. For some embodiments, oilfield equipment or tubular goods such as drill pipe include a shaped recess along an outer circumference for receiving a tag cartridge by shrink fitting. Once tagged, detector system configurations at pipe yards may facilitate logging the presence and location of each drill pipe and correlating specific data, such as inspection data, to each drill pipe. Further, this correlation populates a database utilized to achieve other business functions such as forecasting number of additional drill pipe needed to purchase, invoicing customers according to actual tracked wear/use of the drill pipe being returned, and providing well or job specific drill string population using known history pipe joints.

  • Patent number: 10826834
    Abstract: A system includes a scheduling device of a data distribution service (DDS) that determines bandwidth for communication of time sensitive communications between devices using the DDS in a time sensitive network (TSN). The scheduling device determines available bandwidth for communication of non-time sensitive communications of the control system using the DDS in the TSN, and controls communication of both the time sensitive and non-time sensitive communications in the TSN. The system also includes a traffic shaper of the TSN that receives a communication change from the control system at the TSN. The scheduling device changes one or more of the bandwidth for the communication of the time sensitive communications or the available bandwidth for the communication of the non-time sensitive communications in the TSN without restarting at least one network device of the TSN and while ensuring communications of both the time sensitive communications and the non-time sensitive communications.

  • Publication number: 20200337325
    Abstract: Processing of milk raw material produces a dairy salt. Preliminary treatment of the milk raw is carried out, with pasteurization and its concentration by nanofiltration through a filter with a pore size of 0.001-0.01 ?m, subsequent filtration of the obtained nanofiltration permeate through a membrane module with a pore size of 0.0001-0.001 ?m of a reverse osmosis unit, electrodialysis of the obtained RO retentate, concentration of the concentrate or its concentration and drying. The dairy salts may be manufactured and used to salt food products, beverages, granulated cottage cheese, potato chips, crackers, and dips. A masking fraction with organic acid, amino acid, fatty acid, and sugar portions successfully hides the off-notes otherwise associated with potassium compositions. Food products salted with any of the dairy salts described herein achieve reduced sodium content without compromising flavor.

  • Publication number: 20200344617
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and methods for creating and maintaining a virtual subnetwork of telecommunication base stations within a wider telecommunication network. In an LTE-based example, the subnetwork includes a connection aggregator that is coupled between the plurality of eNodeBs internal to the subnetwork and one or more MMEs in the outer network. The connection aggregator intercepts all control plane messages between the MMEs and the internal eNodeBs, remaps eNodeB identifiers, and transmits repackaged messages so that the outer network sees the entire subnetwork as a single “giant” eNodeB. The disclosed system and methods enables the operator of the virtual subnetwork to add and shut down eNodeBs as demand for connectivity fluctuates, and to do so such that all changes are unseen by the outer network.
