  • Publication number: 20200173907
    Abstract: No reliable test presently exists for predicting the amount or type of corrosion a metal surface may experience during field use, particularly when the corrosion can be a result of both acid-induced corrosion and microorganism-induced corrosion mechanisms. Apparatuses affording more field-like testing conditions may comprise: a one-pass fluid train comprising a reservoir configured to maintain a fluid at a first temperature state under anoxic conditions; a pre-conditioning chamber in fluid communication with the reservoir and configured to receive a defined volume of the fluid; an autoclave chamber having an impeller in fluid communication with the pre-conditioning chamber that is configured to receive the defined volume of the fluid from the pre-conditioning chamber; and one or more sampling receptacles in fluid communication with the autoclave chamber that are configured to receive the defined volume of the fluid while maintaining anoxic conditions.

  • Patent number: 9560010
    Abstract: A technology is described for transferring a file from an unsecure network to a secure network. An example method may include identifying an unsecure account profile and determining that a file is to be transmitted from an unsecure network to a secure network using a one-way transfer device. In response, the file may be obtained from a file storage location and an unsecure account profile name for the unsecure account profile may be identified. A request may be made that the one-way transfer device to transmit the file and the unsecure account profile name to the secure network. The file and the unsecure account profile name may then be transmitted to the secure network, where a secure account profile corresponding to the unsecure account profile may be identified in the secure network and the file may be placed in a folder associated with the secure account profile.

  • Publication number: 20140298958
    Abstract: A torque tool for torqueing a receptacle lug having at least one pair of opposite sides. The tool including a block portion, a pair of protrusions, a protruding annulus, a bore, and a receptor for accepting a torque drive. The protrusions are able to correspond to and engage any one pair of opposite sides of the receptacle lug. The protruding annulus is disposed on the same plane of the block portion as the pair of protrusions, and is disposed such that the annulus can act as a pilot for the receptacle lug. The bore passes through the same plane of the block portion where the protrusions and annulus are located. When the receptor for accepting a torque drive is actuated by a torque drive, the protrusions engage any two opposite sides of the receptacle and the receptacle is either loosened or tightened.

  • Patent number: 8113172
    Abstract: A distributor is configured with an outer housing that has a first portion and a second portion. The first portion and the second portion are adjustable in angular orientation relative to each other. Movement of the second portion relative to the first portion changes ignition timing in the distributor. The movement can be caused by rotation of a thumbwheel such that ignition timing can be changed without mechanical tools. The first and second portions also can comprise visual or tactile markings such that ignition timing can be changed without a timing light. The outer housing can be used in multiple applications simply by changing a length of a shaft housing member that houses a distributor shaft and a gear that is mounted to the distributor shaft.

  • Publication number: 20110314036
    Abstract: System and methods may include storing one or more data item entries with one or more attributes fields associated with attributes of a digital content item as well as one or more rule entries with a transformation to apply to an attribute of a digital content item. Further, identification information associated with a user may be received that is associated with a data item that stores data representing a non-monetary balance of the user and a client program. Also, a rule entry may be retrieved based on the identification information and accessing a set of data item entries based on the identification information, the set of data item entries are associated with a set of digital content items. An attribute of the set of digital content items may be transformed into a transformed attribute according to the rule entry based on the identification information.

    Abstract: A pill card bubble cutter includes a hinged or sliding “clam shell” like hand held cutter with opposing blades along one side for cutting through the pill card bubbles to release pills, and resembles a common staple puller. The cutter may further include a cup or pouch to catch the pill once released. In another embodiment, the cutter has a single blade opposing a stop to cut through one side of the bubble to allow the bubble to be bent back to release the pill. The cutter may alternatively include two opposing parallel sides pressed together to cut through the bubble.

  • Patent number: 7859407
    Abstract: An electronic article surveillance antenna system with wide interrogation zones has a number of core transceiver antennas with each connectable to a transmitter. The core transceiver antennas are adapted to be installed adjacent a ceiling of the wide interrogation zone and generate an interrogation signal into the wide interrogation zone. The core transceiver antennas each are connectable to a receiver to receive and detect a response signal from an electronic surveillance marker disposed in the wide interrogation zone. The system also has transceiver antenna coils with each connectable to the transmitter and adapted to be installed adjacent a floor of the wide interrogation zone. The transceiver antenna coils generate the interrogation signal into the wide interrogation zone and each is also connectable to the receiver to receive and detect the response signal from the electronic surveillance marker disposed in the wide interrogation zone.
