A diversion connector is used for a downhole pump having a plunger and a barrel in a well. The diversion connector is useful in a sandy well having particulates. The plunger has an interior and is reciprocated by a rod relative to the barrel. The connector includes one or more bodies, such as a mandrel, attaching the rod to the plunger. The mandrel has a first exterior surface and defines a fluid passage communicating with the interior of the plunger. A sleeve is disposed on the first exterior surface and has an interior surface floating relative to the first exterior surface. The floating sleeve at least partially prevents particulate uphole of the plunger from passing in a gap between the plunger and the barrel.



PUMPING APPARATUS

A pumping apparatus for a water treatment plant, the pumping apparatus comprising a gas supply, at least one gas turbine 11 connected to the gas supply, the at least one gas turbine connected to drive at least one primary pump 12 through a reduction gear train 13 and clutch 14, a waste heat boiler 26 having a feed water input, the waste heat boiler having an exhaust gas input 26a to receive exhaust gas from the at least one gas turbine 11 and generate steam from the feed water, the waste heat boiler having an steam output 18, the apparatus further comprising at least one steam turbine 20, the at least one steam turbine connected to drive at least one secondary pump 21, the at least one steam turbine being connected to the steam output 18 of the waste heat boiler, the at least one steam turbine 20 further having an exhaust steam output 27, the apparatus further comprising a condensing apparatus 28 to receive steam from the exhaust steam output and generate a feed water stream at a feed water output, the feed water outlet being connected to the feed water input of the waste heat boiler 26.



ON BOARD INERT GAS GENERATION SYSTEM WITH ROTARY POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT COMPRESSOR

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

An on board inert gas generation system for use in an aircraft having a source of low pressure air includes a variable speed rotary positive displacement compressor with an inlet that receives a first portion of the low pressure air and an outlet in flow communication with an air separation module; a turbine that receives a second portion of the low pressure air to extract energy to drive the compressor; a heat exchanger in a flow path between the compressor and the air separation module, the heat exchanger including a heating pass and a cooling pass, such that compressed air from the compressor is passed along the cooling pass to reduce a temperature of the compressed air supplied to the air separation module; and a duct for supplying cool ram air to the heating pass of the heat exchanger. The compressor provides variable air flow to the air separation module.



ALTERNATING PUMP GAPS

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A blood pump system includes a pump housing and an impeller for rotating in a pump chamber within the housing. The impeller has a first side and a second side opposite the first side. The system includes a stator having drive coils for applying a torque to the impeller and at least one bearing mechanism for suspending the impeller within the pump chamber. The system includes a position control mechanism for moving the impeller in an axial direction within the pump chamber to adjust a size of a first gap and a size of a second gap, thereby controlling a washout rate at each of the first gap and the second gap. The first gap is defined by a distance between the first side and the housing and the second gap is defined by a distance between the second side and the pump housing.



System and Method for Enhanced Ion Pump Lifespan

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Within an ion pump, accelerated ions leave the center portion of an anode tube due to the anode tube symmetry and the generally symmetrical electric fields present. The apparent symmetry within the anode tube may be altered by making the anode tube longitudinally segmented and applying independent voltages to each segment. The voltages on two adjacent segments may be time varying at different rates to achieve a rasterizing process.



Air Pump with Pressure Gauge having Indicators on Different Sides and Movable between Use Positions Thereof

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

An air pump includes a barrel and a pumping device moving with respect to the barrel when the air pump is operated. A joint assembly fluidly connecting to the air pump is disposed on the barrel and includes a first hole to receive air from the air pump, a connecting device including a rotatable adaptor, and a second hole extending through the rotatable adaptor and fluidly connecting to the first hole. A pressure gauge connects to joint assembly on the rotatable adaptor, includes an air inlet hole fluidly connecting to the second hole, has a first side thereof including a first dial with a first measuring range and a second side thereof including a second dial with a second measuring range different from the first measuring range, and is rotatable between use positions thereof.



Cartridge for a Pneumatic Circuit and Suction Gripper Device Comprising such a Cartridge
