  • Publication number: 20220226303
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to compositions that are useful in the delivery of various materials. In particular, the compositions comprise a suspension wherein an internal phase material is surrounded by an external phase material. The internal phase specifically can be a hydrophilic material, and the external phase specifically can be a hydrophobic material. The materials are combined so that the internal phase is substantially encapsulated by the external phase such that release can be controlled in relation to osmotic pressure differentials. The suspension can be combined with a carrier, and various systems and products can be formed with the suspension and optional carrier, such as oral strips, spray delivery systems, smokeless tobacco products, aerosol delivery devices, cigarettes, and packaging.

  • Publication number: 20210353968
    Abstract: An acoustic technique designed to increase the gas-dissolution rate of a bubble in a liquid media is proposed. Increased gas-dissolution rate is achieved by increasing the bubble's surface-to-volume ratio via bubble fragmentation. This is achieved by attaching an electroacoustic transducer to the system or load in which bubbles travel and exciting the transducer at the frequency of resonance. The electric resonance of the transducer attached to the system corresponds in frequency to the mechanical resonance of the system or load which allows for achieving such state without the use of an internally placed hydrophone to certify the resonance state. The acoustic bubble fragmentation technique increased the dissolution rate 4 to 5 times of bubbles with initial diameters between 150 and 550 ?m in distilled water and in medical grade saline solution.

  • Patent number: 10976903
    Abstract: A method can include receiving data characterizing a first property of an asset over a first time period. The method can also include receiving data characterizing user interaction with an interactive graphical object. The method can further include determining, by a predictive model, data characterizing the first property of the asset over a second time period. The determining can be based in part on the received data characterizing the user interaction. The method can also include rendering, in a graphical display space, one or more of a first plot of the received data characterizing the first property over the first time period and a second plot of the determined data characterizing the first property over the second time period.

  • Patent number: 10817152
    Abstract: A method can include receiving data identifying an industrial asset. The method can also include receiving data characterizing one or more sensors configured to detect a first property of the asset. The method can further include determining a first graphical representation of the asset based on the received data identifying the industrial asset, and a second graphical representation of a first sensor of the one or more sensors based on the received data characterizing one or more properties of one or more sensors. The method can further include rendering, in a graphical display space, the first graphical representation and the second graphical representation. One or more visual properties of the second graphical representation can be indicative of one or more properties of the first sensor and/or the detected first property of the asset.

  • Patent number: 10637118
    Abstract: A metal-air battery cell includes an electrode assembly and a sealed pouch. The electrode assembly includes an air electrode, a negative electrode, a separator in contact with and disposed between the electrodes, and a hydrophobic gas diffusion layer in contact with a side of the air electrode opposite the separator. The pouch envelops the electrode assembly and contains an electrolyte therein. The pouch is defined by a gas permeable hydrophobic flexible layer in contact with the hydrophobic gas diffusion layer. The electrode assembly further includes a terminal extending from and away at least one of the electrodes, and through the pouch. Opposing sides of the pouch are sealed to each other and around the terminal.
