Agent: Prochemtech International, Inc.

20120273431 - Zero valent iron/iron oxide mineral/ferrous iron composite for treatment of a contaminate fluid: The present inventors have discovered a novel composition, method of making the composition, system, process for treating a fluid containing a contaminant. The fluid may be aqueous. The contaminated fluid may be in the form of a suspension. The treatment reduces the concentration of the contaminant. The reduction in concentration... Agent: The Texas A&m University System

20120273432 - Filter device, method for its operation and use thereof: A filter device for filtering a suspension comprises at least one filter for continuous creation of a filter cake containing particles from the suspension; at least one dispensing device configured to apply at least one first wash liquid to the filter cake created by the at least one filter; and... Agent:

20120273433 - Manifold arrangement, filter arrangement, and methods of bulk fluid filtration: A filter for use with bulk filtration includes filters arranged in parallel flow and a manifold arrangement. The manifold arrangement has a first pipe within a second pipe. An inlet channel conveys unfiltered fluid to the filters, and an outlet channel conveys filtered fluid from the filters. The inlet channel... Agent:
