  • Publication number: 20220186680
    Abstract: A thermal regenerator apparatus is disclosed including a regenerator medium having a plurality of flow passages extending between first and second ports, the flow passages facilitating back and forth fluid flow in a generally transverse direction between the first and second ports while the medium alternatively receives thermal energy from and delivers thermal energy to the fluid. The regenerator medium includes a plurality of overlying foils, each foil having a plurality of channels extending through the foil, the channels having beveled sidewalls. The channels have a width and spacing in the transverse direction and channels in each adjacent overlying foil are transversely offset such that each channel spans between and is in fluid communication with a pair of channels in the adjacent foils and the beveled sidewalls of the channels redirect fluid flow between channels in adjacent foils to form the flow passages.

  • Patent number: 11317209
    Abstract: An electronic device with multiple modes of attachment is disclosed herein. In one or more embodiments, the electronic device includes a device assembly having a housing; a clip member coupled to the housing; a first magneto coupler disposed on the housing; and a removable member having a second magneto coupler. The second magneto coupler of the removable member is capable of being magnetically coupled to the first magneto coupler on the housing, so the magnetic coupling allows the housing to be attached to a non-edge portion of a non-metallic and/or non-magnetic item when the item is placed between the first magneto coupler and the removable member. The clip member allows the housing to be attached to, and detached from, an edge of a non-metallic and/or non-magnetic item when the removable member is magnetically coupled to the housing, and there is no item between the first magneto coupler and removable member.

  • Patent number: 11260984
    Abstract: A system ensures the correct type of fuel is dispensed in an aircraft while removing the introduction of human error in the refueling process. The system includes an RFID tag disposed at one or more aircraft that electronically stores data such as engine type, engine hours, fuel type, tail number, and pilot/subscriber data for the aircraft on which the RFID tag is disposed. An RFID reader is disposed at or near a fuel dispensing mechanism, such as a fuel truck or tank. A signal indicative of fuel type is emitted from the RFID tag to the RFID reader. RFID tags on aircraft that are enrolled in the system's subscription service enable aircraft to be recognized by a module operating the fuel dispensing mechanism. Based on a comparison performed by the module, authorization to begin fueling is either permitted or declined.

  • Publication number: 20220021626
    Abstract: A proxy server automatically includes web applications in web pages at the network level. The proxy server receives, from a client device, a request for a network resource at a domain and is hosted at an origin server. The proxy server retrieves the requested network resource. The retrieved network resource does not include the web applications. The proxy server determines that the web applications are to be installed within the network resource. The proxy server automatically modifies the retrieved network resource to include the web applications. The proxy server transmits a response to the client device that includes the modified network resource. The network resource may remain unchanged at the origin server.

  • Patent number: 10981730
    Abstract: An auger system having an auger with an internal measurement system that is contained within the auger. The measurement system has a power source located within the auger and a sensor for measuring at least one condition within the auger. The measurement system is connected to the power source and a transmitter is powered by the power source to transmit a signal from the sensor. A receiver receives the signal from the transmitter and is spaced from the transmitter. The signal is then sent to a control system that compares the signal to a predetermined value to determine whether the condition measured is within an acceptable range. The control system may alter inputs into components for moving the auger until said condition is within an acceptable range.
