The metalcutting insert (150) includes a metalcutting insert body (152, 154), which includes a cutting edge (160) having at least one discrete cutting location (161A-161F). The metalcutting insert body (152, 154) further contains a distinct interior coolant passage (300) communicating with the discrete cutting location (161A-161F). The distinct interior coolant passage (300) has a coolant passage inlet (304) defining a coolant passage inlet (304) cross-sectional area, a coolant passage discharge (302) defining a coolant passage discharge (302) cross-sectional area, and an axial coolant passage length. The distinct interior coolant passage (300) defines a coolant flow cross-sectional area along the axial coolant passage length thereof. The coolant passage inlet (304) cross-sectional area is substantially the same as the coolant passage discharge (302) cross-sectional area. The geometry of the coolant flow area changes along the axial coolant passage length.

||PCT/US2010/028613||INTERNATIONAL TRUCK INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPANY, LLC||JACOB, John|
The loads of a vehicle electrical system are connected to a power distribution bus through a latching relay. Mandatory loads are connected to an output side of a first latching relay to be cut off from the power distribution bus upon opening. Optional loads are connected to an output side of the second latching relay to be cut off from the power distribution bus upon opening of a latching relay. Opening and closing of the latching relays depends on measured current and voltage.

||PCT/FI2011/050256||FORCHEM OY||SAVIAINEN, Juhani|
A method of treating tall oil pitch. In the present method, part of the fatty acids and the resin acids are released from their sterol esters and wood alcohol esters and converted into methanol esters or ethanol esters. The transesterified products are removed from the pitch by evaporation and then condensed, and by hydrogenating the generated condensate the acids are decarboxylated and the double bonds are satisfied. It is possible to use the present method to produce automotive fuel from tall oil pitch.
