||WO||WO/2014/112993 - AN INTEGRATED APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR CONTINUOUS ION EXCHANGE MEMBRANE CASTING AND PROCESSING||24.07.2014||
||PCT/US2013/021729||GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY||RAMANAN, Harikrishnan|
An apparatus for manufacturing membranes is provided, the apparatus comprises a casting section, a processing section and a conveyor system. The casting section prepares a membrane that is conveyed to the processing section. The conveyor system conveys the membrane through the processing section. In the processing section, the membrane is conditioned in tanks to extract residues. The membrane is also subjected to a leak test to detect physical flaws in the membrane. The leak test involves applying a dye to a surface of the membrane. Any dye that leaks through the membrane will provide a high contrast dye mark on an adjacent contrast material, which is indicative of a physical flaw in the membrane. A process for manufacturing and testing membranes is also provided. The process comprises the steps of casting a membrane precursor, curing the membrane precursor to form a membrane and processing the membrane.

||PCT/US2013/021553||SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC USA, INC.||PYLE, Michael|
According to various aspects and embodiments, a system including a programmable device is provided. The programmable device includes a memory storing an identifier of an authentication session and at least one processor coupled to the memory. The at least one processor is configured to receive an authentication credential, decode the authentication credential to access a session identifier and information associated with a requestor of the authentication credential, determine whether the session identifier matches the identifier of the authentication session, and grant the requestor access to protected functionality of the programmable device if the session identifier matches the identifier of the authentication session.

||PCT/US2013/021540||INTERACTIVE INTELLIGENCE, INC.||CLARK, John, R.|
A system and method are presented for self-service callback modification. A user may request a callback. A unique confirmation identifier may be issued which may be used by the system to look up the callback record. A user may modify their callback request at any time during the callback process to receive their callback at a requested point in time, change the address to which the callback is addressed, alter the media through which the callback is placed, etc. Modification may occur in real time. Confirmation may be sent to the user after modification.

||PCT/US2013/022334||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||SANDERS, Michael, W.|
A well screen can include multiple filter section ends, the filter section ends being displaced outward in response to expansion of the well screen, and a slurry delivery shunt conduit positioned circumferentially between the filter section ends. A method of delivering a slurry into a wellbore about a well screen can include positioning slurry delivery shunt conduits between multiple circumferentially spaced apart filter sections of the well screen, the filter sections radially outwardly displacing in a well, and flowing the slurry through the shunt conduits. A well system can include multiple well screens positioned in a wellbore, and shunt conduits which deliver a slurry into the wellbore about the well screens, the shunt conduits being positioned circumferentially between filter sections of the well screens.

||PCT/US2013/021568||HEWLETT-PACKARD DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, L.P.||CHANG, Jichuan|
Systems and methods of vertically aggregating tiered servers in a data center are disclosed. An example method includes partitioning a plurality of servers in the data center to form an array of aggregated end points (AEPs). Multiple servers within each AEP are connected by an intra-AEP network fabric and different AEPs are connected by an inter-AEP network. Each AEP has one or multiple central hub servers acting as end-points on the inter-AEP network. The method includes resolving a target server identification (ID). If the target server ID is the central hub server in the first AEP, the request is handled in the first AEP. If the target server ID is another server local to the first AEP, the request is redirected over the intra-AEP fabric. If the target server ID is a server in a second AEP, the request is transferred to the second AEP.

A user interface guides an interview of a print service provider (PSP) to generate interview data regarding the PSP. The interview data regarding the PSP is translated into simulation experiments regarding printing production services offerable by the PSP. The simulation results are concurrently executed to generate simulation results. The simulation results are synthesized to generate capacity planning analyses and recommendations for the PSP reviewable within the user interface.
