A tank trailer mounted metering system is disclosed. The system includes a fluid conduit extending between an inlet and an outlet. The inlet is configured for connecting to a fluid supply, and the outlet is connected to a tank of a tank trailer. The system also includes a pump positioned along the fluid conduit between the inlet and the outlet. The pump is configured to move a fluid through the fluid conduit. The system includes an air eliminator box positioned along the fluid conduit between the pump and the outlet. The air eliminator box is configured to remove air from the fluid. The system also includes a mass flow meter positioned along the fluid conduit between the air eliminator box and the outlet, and an orifice plate positioned at an outlet of the mass flow meter.

Improved containment mats and systems of containment mats may include multiple adjoining mats with a top surface and a bottom surface. The multiple mats may provide a modular structural mat system that may be installed at a drill site, with multiple mats placed adjacent to each other with a lap joint connecting adjacent mats. A geotextile may be used to cover the lap joints and a coating applied to the geotextile. Such a system may provide containment of potential spills, a reliable working surface for drilling operations, and relatively fast and less expensive installation.


Embodiments of wave-based lighting efficiencies are provided. As an example, a method includes determining a characteristic of a voltage from an alternating current (AC) waveform, where the AC waveform is configured to power a load, and wherein the AC waveform includes positive voltage portions, negative voltage portions, and zero axis points. Some embodiments include determining a first position in the AC waveform to create a first step with a first step voltage and applying the AC waveform at the first step to a first predetermined portion of the load, where the first predetermined portion of the load has a first voltage rating that corresponds to the first step voltage.

A stiffener for an endoscope may comprise a rod and a handle. The rod may be configured so that disposing the rod within the channel increases the stiffness of the endoscope shaft. The stiffener may comprise a channel for application of fluid there through. A kit may comprise a plurality of stiffeners of varying rigidity.


Multiple levels of wireless network resource granting. A user who has an authorized key, e.g., an encryption key or a key indicating that they have paid for service, gets a first, better level of access to the network resources. One without the key is granted lesser access, e.g., less total bandwidth, less bandwidth speed, no access to files or the like.

Improved containment mats and systems of containment mats may include multiple adjoining mats with a top surface and a bottom surface, and a liner material placed between the top and bottom surfaces. The multiple mats may provide a modular structural mat system that may be installed at a drill site, with multiple mats placed adjacent to each other with a lap joint connecting adjacent mats. A geotextile may be used to cover the lap joints and a coating applied to the geotextile. Such a system may provide containment of potential spills, a reliable working surface for drilling operations, and relatively fast and less expensive installation. The liner and geotextile may be a 100 mil well pad liner.

Included are embodiments for customized load control. One embodiment of a method includes receiving altered alternating current power, where the altered alternating current power is altered via inclusion of a delay to communicate a message, converting the message in the altered alternating current power into a computer-readable format, and determining an action to take related to the message. Some embodiments include utilizing the altered alternating current power for performing the action, based on the message.


Included are embodiments for . As an example, a method includes receiving alternating current power at a predetermined frequency, receiving communications data for a device, and determining from the communications data a message to send to the device. Some embodiments include determining an alteration to the alternating current power to convert the communications data into the message according to a predetermined format, determining a zero cross point of the alternating current power, and altering the alternating current power around the zero cross point according to the predetermined format to send the message. Some embodiments include sending the altered alternating current power with the message according to the predetermined format to the device.
