||PCT/BR2015/050023||AUTRAN COELHO LOBO - EIRELI - EPP||LOBO, Autran|
The present patent relates to a systemic management model of assisted driving of vehicles in general and for training drivers on how to improve energy efficiency, by means of active management, telemetrics and remote control, using an on-board computer installed in the vehicles and capable of autonomously acquiring, processing, storing and transmitting said data, together with geoprocessing information. On the basis of said data and the current driving behaviour, the on-board computer determines the driving behaviour having the greatest energy efficiency and assists driving in real time by means of signals. The data are transmitted to the central processing unit by the available transmission means and are used by a multidisciplinary training team (intelligence unit) which systematically determines the best driving behaviour for each set formed by a driver, a vehicle, a route and time, refines the good driving parameters for the on-board computer and generates suitable training material to teach economic driving, including an individual and group motivation program and a live training program.

WO/2015/123739 IMPROVEMENT TO PISTON OF MANUAL SPRAYER PRESSURISING SYSTEM||WO||27.08.2015|
||PCT/BR2014/000061||GUARANY IND. COM. LTDA||FLEURY BELLANDI, Alida Maria|
The present invention relates to a new mechanical assembly model for pressurising portable hand-pumped sprayers. The entire assembly is contained inside the sprayer tank and consists basically of two parts: the connecting rod or piston, which is located at the lower end of the tank and fastened to the base of chassis of the sprayer, and the expansion rings located at the upper end of the connecting rod. The proposed improvement to the piston of the pressurising system of portable sprayers allows replacing the conventional and widespread pistons, the so-called "washers" and also the unsegmented sealing rings (O-rings), reducing servicing and part exchanges due to wear, that is to say, increasing durability and reducing the (pumping) effort required from the user to pressurise the system, especially in conditions of little or no lubrication, in comparison with the usual components of such systems.

||PCT/BR2014/000052||PETRÓLEO BRASILEIRO S.A. - PETROBRAS||MAIA DE SOUZA, Carlos Eduardo|
Subsea system for injection of seawater by means of a submerged centrifugal pump, more especially relating to a subsea system for injection of water into aquifers of petroleum or gas reservoirs requiring a secondary recovery method using water injection. The system is formed by a capture tube (2) that includes and keeps longitudinally aligned the pumping unit formed by a submerged centrifugal pump (1), a motor (11), a screen (3) or filters (6) and (8) or (9) and a flow measuring device (14). The stream of water is filtered through the screen (3) or filter (6) and then through the filter (8) or (9), and then flows towards the suction side of the submerged centrifugal pump (1). The suction side of the submerged centrifugal pump (1) is isolated from the discharge by means of a discharge pipe (12) or by means of a jacket (10). The capture tube (2) is able to float by means of a flotation device (4) and tethers (7) or is connected to/mounted directly onto the subsea tree (22); an ROV panel (19) is provided for connection of power cables and hoses for injection of chemicals, where necessary, and also comprises interfaces for valve operation. The speed of the motor (11), and consequently the flow and discharge pressure thereof are controlled by means of a speed-varying device (20) arranged externally to the capture tube (2). The present invention is mainly intended for use in injector wells where the injection of untreated seawater does not cause undesirable damage to the formation. The application thereof is directly linked to a reduction in water-injection plants installed on floating units.
WO/2015/123741 DEVICE APPLIED TO A CLOSURE, WITH VALVE FOR CONTROL OF FLOW AND PUMPING OF LIQUID, FOR PET BOTTLES AND THE LIKE||WO||27.08.2015|
||PCT/BR2014/000067||KIESSLING, Haroldo Hellmut||KIESSLING, Haroldo Hellmut|
The present subject matter relates to a bottle closure provided with a device that has a valve for control of flow and pumping of internal liquid, which facilitates the action of serving the latter. The mechanical actuation device is constituted by a suction spout of the straw/hose type that is inserted inside the bottle, with direct access to the liquid. The suction spout extends beyond the closure, forming an external "handle" affixed to the side or to the top of the closure, via which the liquid emerges in order to be transferred to the cup. When the user squeezes/presses the bottle body, an internal pressure is generated that causes the liquid to be served with ease, said liquid exiting via the external handle of the device. A directional valve is affixed to the closure to allow the ingress of external air into the bottle at rest, and further prevents the exit of air when the bottle is pressurized, with the result that the liquid inside exits via the suction spout. When the bottle is released, the valve enables the air to enter once again, and the bottle is inflated, which prevents the latter from remaining deformed after use. An optional holder may be coupled to the device for supporting and retaining the cup, which means that the user does not have to hold the cup in mid-air whilst the liquid is being served. The user will thus have to use only one hand in order to serve himself, it being sufficient to pressurize the bottle in order for the contents to emerge.
