  • Publication number: 20120171073
    Abstract: This invention refers to an alloy for the manufacture of ground-installed electrodes, which is primarily composed of aluminum, manganese, copper, zinc, cadmium, titanium, lead, and iron. This novel alloy allows for the manufacture of vertical and horizontal electrodes of different dimensions, which are used for the ground installation of electrical substations, transmission towers, and electrical distribution posts. In addition, the invention also provides a method to connect said electrodes in a more efficient manner.

  • Patent number: 5705205
    Abstract: A process for increasing the yield of natural vanilla flavor. Green vanilla pods are hydrated. The resulting hydrated pods are ground, forming a liquid phase and a solid phase. The resulting ground hydrated product of green vanilla pods is treated with an enzymatic system including at least one enzyme. The enzyme system possesses from about 10 to about 1000 units of beta-glucose activity per gram of green vanilla pods. The ground hydrated green vanilla pods and the enzymatic system are incubated at a temperature of from about C. to about C. for a period of between about 2 hours and about 30 hours sufficient to allow the release of the vanilla flavor. The liquid phase containing the vanilla flavor is separated from the solid phase.
