  • Patent number: 11365615
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices to enhance fracturing fluid delivery to subsurface formations to enhance hydrocarbon production from the subsurface formations may include providing a manifold coupling having a manifold coupling passage with a manifold coupling axis. The manifold coupling may include a first inlet passage positioned to provide fluid flow between a first fracturing fluid output and the manifold coupling passage, and a second inlet passage positioned opposite the first inlet passage to provide fluid flow between a second fracturing fluid output and the manifold coupling passage. The first inlet passage may have a first inlet passage cross-section at least partially defining a first inlet axis extending transverse relative to the manifold coupling axis. The second inlet passage may have a second inlet passage cross-section at least partially defining a second inlet axis extending transverse relative to the manifold coupling axis and not being co-linear with the first inlet axis.

  • Patent number: 4296458
    Abstract: A method of assembling an electrolytic capacitor comprise the following steps: an annular sleeve shaped cathode is inserted into the open end of a can; an anode structure is inserted into said can in a spaced apart relationship from said cathode, the space between said anode and cathode being filled with an electrolyte, said anode structure having an aperture or recess for reception of an anode lead; a primary seal, for sealing the open end of the can, and comprising an anode lead electrically isolated from the rest of the seal; is formed; a secondary seal is positioned on the anode lead on the inside face of said primary seal to form a seal between said anode lead and said can prior to sealing of the primary seal of said capacitor; the end of the anode lead projecting from said secondary seal is machined to provide projections on said lead; the capacitor is assembled by forcing the projecting portion of said anode lead into said anode until the primary seal is in position; the primary seal is welded around i
