||PCT/US2013/036148||METALS TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT COMPANY, LLC||LANE, William, Leonard|
A method of recovering metals from a polymetallic mineral resource containing lead, zinc, and other metals, the method comprising flotation separating the polymetallic mineral resource while only suppressing the flotation of zinc and other metals to the extent that it does not substantially impair the flotation of lead to form a lead containing composite concentrate and an zinc-containing tailing; subjecting the composite concentrate to a lead recovery process in which an aqueous solution of ferric fluoroborate in fluoroboric acid leaches lead from the lead concentrate, and the lead is recovered from the solution by electrowinning; and further processing the leached concentrate to recover at least one additional metal.
||WO||WO/2014/168621 - REDUCED CRYSTALLINE SILICA DIATOMACEOUS EARTH PRODUCTS AND METHODS OF MANUFACTURING THE SAME||16.10.2014||
||PCT/US2013/036156||EP MINERALS, LLC||WANENE, Wilson, K.|
Diatomaceous earth products with reduced amounts of cristobalite and higher Y values are disclosed. The diatomaceous earth products are prepared in a conventional manner to produce a flux-calcine diatomaceous earth. The flux-calcine diatomaceous earth is mixed with potassium hydroxide and the mixture is then heated. The combination of the potassium hydroxide and post-calcining heat treatment results in a diatomaceous earth product with reduced amounts of cristobalite and a whiter, brighter appearance.
||WO||WO/2014/168608 - PACKER ASSEMBLY HAVING BARREL SLIPS THAT DIVERT AXIAL LOADING TO THE WELLBORE||16.10.2014||
||PCT/US2013/035774||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||ROOD, Dennis, Dean|
A barrel slip for a packer assembly operable for use in a wellbore. The barrel slip includes a radially expandable barrel slip body having a first end and a second end. A substantially cylindrical directional gripping surface is disposed on an exterior of the barrel slip body proximate the first end. A substantially cylindrical non directional contact surface is disposed on the exterior of the barrel slip body proximate the second end. In a set configuration, radial expansion of the barrel slip body creates a gripping engagement between the directional gripping surface and the wellbore that opposes movement of the barrel slip body in a first direction. Also, in the set configuration, radial expansion of the barrel slip body creates a contact engagement between the non directional contact surface and the wellbore that diverts force acting on the barrel slip body in a second direction to the wellbore.

||PCT/US2013/035743||OTIS ELEVATOR COMPANY||KRISHNAMURTHY, Shashank|
A drive unit for a motor includes a printed circuit board (PCB); a first gallium nitride switch having a gate, the first gallium nitride switch mounted to the PCB; a second gallium nitride switch having a gate, the second gallium nitride switch mounted to the PCB; a gate driver generating a turn-off drive signal to turn off the first gallium nitride switch and turn off the second gallium nitride switch; a first turn-off trace on the PCB, the first turn-off trace directing the turn-off drive signal to the gate of the first gallium nitride switch; and a second turn-off trace on the PCB, the second turn-off trace directing the turn-off drive signal to the gate of the second gallium nitride switch; wherein an impedance of the first turn-off trace is substantially equal to an impedance of the second turn-off trace.
||WO||WO/2014/168603 - SYSTEM FOR INCREASING UTILIZATION OF STORAGE MEDIA||16.10.2014||
||PCT/US2013/035584||VIOLIN MEMORY, INC.||DE LA IGLESIA, Erik|
A storage system creates an abstraction of flash Solid State Device (SSD) media allowing random write operations of arbitrary size by a user while performing large sequential write operations of a uniform size to an SSD array. This reduces the number of random write operations performed in the SSD array and as a result increases performance of the SSD array. A control element determines when blocks from different buffers should be combined together or discarded based on fragmentation and read activity. This optimization scheme increases memory capacity and improves memory utilization and performance.
