A process for preparing a self-supporting monolithic porous carbonaceous adsorbent structure involves: drying a mixture of polymeric carbon precursor particles and an organic latex binder at a temperature of 100°C or less to form a solid monolith of polymeric carbon precursor particles bound by an organic polymer matrix in a pre-determined shape. The solid monolith in the pre-determined shape is carbonized at a temperature of 800°C or less to form a self-supporting monolithic porous carbonaceous adsorbent structure. The self-supporting monolithic porous carbonaceous adsorbent structure produced by the process has an efficient tortuous gas flow path in the whole monolith, low breath resistance (pressure drop), and strong mechanical strength of the adsorbent structure.
WO/2015/109383 APPARATUS FOR SECURING ACCESS TO A FUEL CAP OF A FUEL TANK||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000049||GROUP MAMMUT INC.||BOUCHARD, Pierre-Luc|
Apparatus for securing access to an original fuel cap of a fuel tank comprising a surrounding element for fixedly engaging a filler neck below the fuel cap and a secured cap for engaging the surrounding element over the fuel cap (e.g., using three equidistant screws). The secured cap comprises at least one opening allowing for locking the secured cap over the surrounding element. The secured cap may provide an inward flange with one or more flange slots for allowing at least one wing element of the surrounding element through the inward flange. The secured cap, in this example, engages the surrounding element by rotating the secured cap in relation to the surrounding element. The opening may allow for insertion of a lock for impeding the rotation of the secured cap over the surrounding element to avoid alignment of the flange slots with the wing elements.

||PCT/CA2014/050565||HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN IN RIGHT OF CANADA, as represented by THE MINISTER OF NATIONAL DEFENCE||CUI, Yuxing|
A process for preparing a self-supporting monolithic porous carbonaceous adsorbent structure involves drying a mixture of non-gelling polymeric carbon precursor particles and an organic latex binder at a temperature of 100°C or less to form a solid monolith of polymeric carbon precursor particles bound by an organic polymer matrix in a pre-determined shape. The solid monolith in the pre-determined shape is carbonized at a temperature of 800°C or less to form a self-supporting monolithic porous carbonaceous adsorbent structure. A metal impregnant is introduced before or after carbonization of the solid monolith.
WO/2015/109386 SITE REPLACEMENT OF INTERNAL SATURABLE REACTORS OF A RECTIFIER POWER TRANSFORMER||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2015/000016||ABB INC.||TENYENHUIS, Ed G.|
A method replaces a saturable core reactor (SCRs) in a rectifier power transformer disposed in a transformer vault at its field location. The transformer has an oil-filled tank housing the SCRs. The tank has a manhole opening therein. A busbar structure is associated with each SCR. The method drains the oil from the tank. A busbar structure is disconnected from an associated SCR. The disconnected busbar structure is moved away from the transformer. The SCR is removed from the tank through the manhole opening and is lowered. The SCR is then conveyed from the transformer vault. A replacement SCR is moved to be adjacent the manhole opening and is then slid through the manhole opening and into the tank to a certain location. The busbar structure is moved so as to be associated with a replacement SCR and is connected to the replacement SCR.
WO/2015/109387 METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR GENERATING A THREE-DIMENSIONAL SCAN OF AN OBJECT||WO||30.07.2015|
||PCT/CA2015/000033||VORUM RESEARCH CORPORATION||SABISTON, Robert Malcolm|
A method and system for generating a three-dimensional scan of an object using a handheld scanner is disclosed. The method involves obtaining images of the object from a successive plurality of handheld scanner positions with respect to the object, and processing the images to generate a respective 3D frame for each of the plurality of handheld scanner positions. Each 3D frame includes data representing locations of a plurality of 3D points on a surface of the object. The method further involves comparing each successive 3D frame with at least one preceding 3D frame, determining whether a result of the comparison meets a correspondence criterion associated with generation of a 3D representation of the surface of the object, and initiating a recovery process when the correspondence criterion is not met.
