||PCT/CA2014/050163||HUSKY INJECTION MOLDING SYSTEMS LTD.||KINTZINGER, Rainer|
Wings are provided on mold components and linear ways are provided below these wings. A pad rides on each linear way below each wing. A force generator, such as a spring, is disposed between each wing and underlying pad. In this way the weight of the mold components is borne, at least in part, by the linear ways so that the weight on components that might otherwise sag is lessened.

||PCT/CA2014/000359||JONES, Richard L.||JONES, Richard L.|
A fermentation apparatus for preserving the aroma of a fermentable beverage is provided. The fermentation apparatus comprises a flow passage fluidly connectable to the headspace located above a fermentable beverage in a fermentation container. A carbon dioxide scrubber in the flow passage receives a headspace fluid mixture comprising at least carbon dioxide gas and an aromatic fluid originating from the fermenting beverage. When the headspace fluid mixture contacts the carbon dioxide scrubber, the carbon dioxide retains a modified fluid in the flow passage. The modified fluid has a lower carbon dioxide gas concentration and a higher aromatic fluid concentration than the headspace fluid mixture. The flow passage directs the modified fluid back to the headspace to at least partially retain the aromatic fluid in the fermentable beverage in the fermentation container. A method for preserving the aroma of a fermentable beverage is also provided.

||PCT/CA2014/050380||THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO||LEHN, Peter Waldemar|
The apparatus comprises one or more strings, each string: comprising two pairs of arms, each pair of arms being defined by an inner arm and an outer arm, series-stacked around an associated node, each arm being defined by a plurality of cascaded submodules; and in use, being connected to one of the networks such that the arms are arranged in symmetric relation about an associated midpoint, with the inner arms flanked by the outer arms. The nodes, in use, are coupled to the other of the networks, for transfer of DC power between the networks. Means for providing paths for circulating AC currents are provided along with means to achieve power balance of submodules notwithstanding the DC power transfer.

||PCT/CA2014/050374||1304342 ALBERTA LTD.||MILLAR, Mackenzie|
A method to produce LNG at straddle plants. In contrast to known methods, there is provided a slipstream of a high pressure, pre-treated, pre-cooled natural gas stream to a straddle LNG plant section. The slipstream is further cooled, and processed in a high pressure column to a methane content of 85% or 85 plus by mole. The processed stream is further treated to remove carbon dioxide. The de-carbonated high pressure stream is further cooled in a heat exchanger by a counter-current vapour fraction of the expanded gas before entering an expander apparatus. The processed, treated and cooled gas is expanded into a separator. The produced LNG fraction is pumped to storage. A portion of the LNG fraction is used as a reflux stream to the high pressure column. The cold vapour fraction from the separator flows through counter-current heat exchangers, giving up its coolth energy before being re- compressed into the high pressure transmission gas pipeline.

The present invention relates to a cushion device for supporting a large animal such as a cow,a horse, a buffalo, a sheep, a goat, a pig and so forth. The cushioning device includes a top and bottom surface interconnected by a 'drop stitch' structure and a chamber. Contained within the chamber of the cushioning device is a filling material. The filling material includes a gaseous compound, a liquid or a mixture of a gaseous compound and a liquid. Additionally, the present invention also relates to the methods of transporting and installing the cushioning device. The device is shipped to the installation site absent the filling material. During installation a controlled mixture of dual phase fluids such as water and inert gas are disposed into the cushioning device, creating a gelatinous and gaseous filling material.
