The system includes a heat treatment apparatus, a flow-controllable cold wind ventilator, a temperature- and flow-controllable hot wind ventilator, a displacement measuring system, a temperature detection system, and a non-destructive testing apparatus. During the manufacturing process of the nuclear power steam generator, the heat treatment device system for the circular seam of the nuclear power steam generator could be used to dock the upper circular steam (11) firstly, and then the lower circular steam (21). The system can not only prevent the emergence of pits caused by permanent impressions in heat exchange tubes, but also optimize the manufacturing process of the steam generator, and therefore reduce the whole manufacturing cycle of the steam generator.
WO/2016/068991 SHEAR THINNING CALIBRATION FLUIDS FOR RHEOMETERS AND RELATED METHODS||WO||06.05.2016|
||PCT/US2014/063388||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC. ||KULKARNI, Sandeep D. |
Shear thinning fluids may be useful as calibration fluids for calibrating rheometers with bob/rotor eccentricity and at lower shear rates, which may be particularly useful for calibrating rheometers at well sites that are used for measuring the rheological properties of complex fluids (e.g., wellbore fluids like drilling fluids, cementing fluids, fracturing fluids, completion fluids, and workover fluids). Additionally, high shear rate calibrations may also be performed with shear thinning calibration fluids. Newtonian fluids may be used for high shear rate calibrations in alternate of or in addition to the shear thinning calibration fluid.

A ticket dispenser for dispensing a pleated ribbon of tickets, the ticket dispenser comprising a ticket storage chamber within a housing and a ticket dispensing aperture, wherein the housing has opposed ticket display and rear walls, and also has opposed first and second walls that each extend between the ticket display wall and the rear wall, the display wall comprising: an outer wall having an interior face, and an inner ticket pathway guide proximate the outer wall, providing a ticket display pathway extending along the interior face of the outer wall, between the outer wall and the inner ticket pathway guide, the ticket display pathway having a pathway inlet, wherein the ticket dispenser is configured for a ticket to be drawn out from within the storage chamber, through the pathway inlet, along the ticket display pathway towards the first wall, and out through the dispensing aperture, wherein the ticket storage chamber has a chamber length extending along the display wall between the first wall and the second wall, and the ticket display pathway extends along more than half of the chamber length, wherein the ticket storage chamber is provided with a storage chamber guide configured to space tickets apart from the display wall adjacent a central portion along the length of the ticket display pathway, and wherein the storage chamber guide extends to a maximal separation from the ticket display pathway at a location that is closer to the first wall than the separation between the pathway inlet and the first wall.
WO/2016/067076 METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR TRANSMITTING BROADCAST DATA||WO||06.05.2016|
||PCT/IB2014/065685||PISMO LABS TECHNOLOGY LTD. ||CHAN, Ho, Ming |
The present invention discloses methods and systems for transmitting broadcast data at a communication gateway. When the communication gateway receives a broadcast packet from a host or node, the communication gateway determines whether the broadcast packet satisfies at least one condition. If the broadcast packet satisfies the at least one condition, it is determined whether or not to modify a time to live (TTL) value. The TTL value of the broadcast packet is modified if it is determined to modify the TTL value. The broadcast packet is then forwarded to the destination address of the broadcast packet based on the TTL value. The destination address is reachable through an interconnected network.
WO/2016/064601 DYNAMIC POWER REDUCTION MANAGEMENT OF NETWORK DEVICES||WO||28.04.2016|
||PCT/US2015/054919||ARRIS ENTERPRISES, INC. ||BENTON, Thomas P. |
Power consumption levels of a network device can be adjusted based upon traffic flow at the device. A network device can recognize a situation where the traffic flow associated with a CPE device reaches a level that can be supported by a smaller channel set, and when this situation arises, the CPE device can request and receive an updated, smaller channel set. In response to receiving the smaller channel set, the CPE device can operate using fewer resources, thereby reducing power consumption at the CPE device. When traffic level at the CPE device warrants, the CPE device can request and receive a new or updated, larger channel set.

WO/2016/055759 AIR HANDLING UNIT AND METHOD OF OPERATING THE SAME||WO||14.04.2016|
||PCT/GB2015/052235||AIREDALE INTERNATIONAL AIR CONDITIONING LIMITED ||PARKER, Michael |
An air handling unit, particularly for data center cooling, operates to cool a flow of return air from a conditioned space using a flow of ambient air. The return air is recirculated to the conditioned space as supply air. The flow of ambient air can be adiabatically cooled to a lower temperature to provide additional cooling. A flow of makeup air can be joined with the cooled return air to form the supply air, and can be sourced from the ambient environment directly or from the heated flow of ambient air.
WO/2016/053783 BRIDGING BASED UPON MEDIA ACCESS CONTROL ADDRESS||WO||07.04.2016|
||PCT/US2015/052179||ARRIS ENTERPRISES, INC. ||CHEN, Jianxiang |
Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate packet bridging based upon a host device address. An access point may identify a source or destination address associated with a received packet, wherein the address identifies an associated host device. When the destination address of a downstream data packet matches an address associated with the access point, the access point may route the packet to a destination within a local area network (LAN). When the source address of an upstream data packet identifies a host device for which communications are to be bridged, the access point may bridge the data packet to a wide area network (WAN). An access point may identify a multicast or broadcast downstream data packet and the access point may flood the packet to both a route and a bridge routine. The bridging determination may be made by a dual-layer WAN or LAN interface.
