||PCT/CL2016/000059||TRANSDUCTO S.A.||RIVEROS URZUA, Gabriel Ángel|
The present invention relates to a device for electroplating metal from acidic, neutral or basic solutions having a low or high content of metal dissolved therein. A device is provided for the electrolytic production of metal, in the form of electrolytic metal sheets free from imperfections and impurities. The filter press device is constructed from a plurality of cells connected in series electrically and in parallel hydraulically with the solution, each of the cells comprising, alternately, quadrilateral frames and ion-exchange membranes to form, alternately, anode and cathode compartments. Each compartment allows the free flow of liquid, given that each frame comprises an inlet and an outlet on the outer surface thereof and holes on the inner surface, anolyte or catholyte passing through each compartment and the electrolysed product being discharged from the anolyte compartment or from the catholyte compartment in the form of a metal or a metallic compound. All the electrodes, except the terminal electrodes, are bipolar and designed with a vertical base plate which has a side functioning as an anode with the respective anolyte in a cell unit, and functioning on the other side as a cathode with the respective catholyte in the adjacent cell unit. The outer sides of the terminal electrodes comprise electrical connections for the row of cells, such that the electrodes of adjacent base plates are intercalated without making direct electrical contact with each other, forming a packet of electrode plates.

||PCT/CL2016/050054||UNIVERSIDAD DE SANTIAGO DE CHILE||CARVAJAL ORTEGA, Linton Patricio|
The present invention relates to an ultrasound method for determining nominal values of a stress field in a material by measuring the Poisson ratio. More specifically, the invention relates to a method for measuring average, through-thickness, biaxial nominal stresses σ1 and σ2, in a part formed by a material and in which it is necessary to know the residual stresses produced during production of the part, or the stresses applied to the part when same is in operation. The method comprises the measuring of a representative material equal to that of the part to be inspected, using, as a unique measuring parameter, the time of flight or travel of three waves propagating in the same space and direction: an ultrasound longitudinal wave, and two ultrasound shear waves polarised in a mutually perpendicular manner.
WO/2017/063099 HYDROMETALLURGICAL METHOD FOR LEACHING COPPER MINERALS AND PRODUCTS CONTAINING SAME, AND REACTIVE MIXTURE USED THEREIN||WO||20.04.2017|
||PCT/CL2016/050055||LIXIVIA PROCESOS METALÚRGICOS SPA||CARTAGENA FAGERSTRÖM, Alejandro|
The invention relates to hydrometallurgical methods for the extraction of copper minerals and products containing same, and in particular to a method which uses a novel reactive mixture in the steps of leaching and chemical curing. This reactive mixture is produced from the combination of nitrate ions from an ammonium nitrate salt (NH4NO3), iron ions (Fe) derived from the refining solution from the step of extraction of copper by solvent extraction and by the addition of ferrous sulfate (Fe2(SO4)) in the event that it is required by the method, sulfuric acid and chlorine salts. The reactive mixture has a redox potential of between 800 and 1200 mV/NHE, which allows the elimination of the steps of concentration of the ferrous ion (Fe+2) and conversion of ferrous ion (Fe+2) into ferric ion (Fe+3) in membrane cells.

||PCT/CL2016/050056||UNIVERSIDAD DE CHILE||TORO CABRERA, Luis Alejandro|
The invention relates to an ex vivo method for the early detection of acute kidney injury in critical patients, comprising the use of measurements of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), klotho (KL) and erythropoietin (EPO) as biomarkers, where such measurements are obtained from a venous blood sample or urine, and allow the following factors to be calculated: 1 = ([FGF23]p x [EPO]p); 2 = ([FGF23]p / [Klotho]p); 3 = ([EPO]p) / [Klotho]p); 4 = (([FGF23]p x [EPO]p) / [Klotho]p); where [X]p is the measurement of the plasma level of X and X is selected from fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), klotho (KL) and erythropoietin (EPO). If the value of the indicator 1, 2, 3, 4 or two or more thereof, is higher than, or equal to, a cut-off point (10 U) which allows identification of patients with and without AKL with a high level of sensitivity/specificity, then a high probability of presence/development of AKI is confirmed, and measures can be taken for patients with AKI. If the indicator value 1, 2, 3, 4 or two or more thereof is lower than the previously mentioned cut-off point, then the probability of presence/development of AKI is low and standard treatment can be carried out, that is, with use of endovenous solutions, prevention of the use of nephrotoxins, use of renal replacement therapy in severe AKI, inter alia.
