HAND-HELD RADIATION DETECTOR

Publication number: 9,530,300

Application number: 14/035,941

A hand-held radiation detector that produces a voltage as a function of the amount of ionizing radiation is described. The hand-held radiation detector may be configured for measuring low levels of ionizing radiation including alpha radiation. A light alert feature may blink and/or a sound alert feature may produce a bird chirping sound at a frequency relative to the amount of radiation detected. The ionizing radiation detector may have an ion chamber comprising a first electrode chamber and a second electrode configured inside the first electrode chamber, and it may be an open type ion chamber allowing ambient air to enter the ion chamber. A sensitivity range selector may be used to increase or decrease the voltage range for detection. An input selector may be used to select the type of detection a user desires, such as consumables or radon gas for example.

TRANSVERSE FLUX STATOR GEOMETRY

Publication number: 9,509,181

Application number: 14/101,415

An electrical machine includes a rotor for rotation about a rotational axis, a coil arranged circumferentially with respect to and encircling the rotational axis, and a stator assembly. The stator assembly includes a unitary lamina comprising a plurality of extending members integral therewith, the extending members being bent to form a plurality of opposing extending members about the coil. The electrical machine is at least one of a transverse flux machine or a commutated flux machine. Methods of manufacturing stators for assembly with rotors to form electrical machines are also disclosed.

NEUTRON BEAM DIFFRACTION MATERIAL TREATMENT SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,508,460

Application number: 14/925,970

A neutron beam diffraction material treatment system utilizes a neutron beam source configured to produce a first neutron beam having a first direction and second neutron beam source configured to produce a second neutron beam having a second direction. The neutron beam diffraction material treatment system can direct the first and second neutron beams to intersect with each other in or on a work-piece and thereby treat the work piece by neutron diffraction. One or more of the neutron beams may be configured to move to change the location of the intersecting point within the work-piece and/or the work-piece may be configured to move. The first and second neutron beams may be configured with a magnetic coil configured around the neutron beam and between the neutron beam source and the work-piece. The magnetic coil may be used to contain the neutron beams and reduce the scattering of neutron.

RECEPTACLE CONFIGURED FOR LINER REPLACMENT WITHOUT LID REMOVAL

Publication number: 9,499,337

Application number: 14/834,845

A receptacle having a lid coupled to a receptacle body by a hinge is configured for the replacement of a flexible liner without removal of the lid. A flange extension is configured at an offset distance to the hinge and enables the perimeter of the flexible liner to be retained in a liner retainer and extend up and over the hinge and into a flange extension on the opposing side of the hinge. This configuration holds the perimeter of the flexible liner taut and ensures that it remains in place as contents are placed in the receptacle. A pair of trunnion hinges may extend in opposing directions from the receptacle body to provide a detachable attachment of a lid. A flange extension may extend substantially around the liner retainer portion or only a certain distance from the end of a hinge.

Bottle With Storable Flexible Spout

Publication number: 9,499,315

Application number: 14/323,378

A bottle has a flexible spout and a cap/cover configuration that effectively seals the spout from leakage and stores it under the cover. The flexible spout is folded or bent in two locations as it is secured within the cover. The flexible spout is folded over from an extended orientation and then around a fold partition. The cover is detachably attached to the cap. A diaphragm extends under the cap and seals liquid within the enclosure. In one embodiment, the cover and cap are configured with a ratchet mechanism that allows the cover to rotate in only one direction. In one embodiment, the bottle comprises two enclosures, and the enclosures may be detachably attached to each other or to a handle.

Safety Walker

Publication number: 9,468,579

Application number: 15/150,297

A safety walker provides a strap that actuates to allow a person to enter into the safety walker and then raise the strap between their legs. The strap prevents ground level falls. The safety strap is actuated by a strap actuator that may pivot about a pivot attached to the movable support frame. The strap actuator may be locked into a secure position with the strap in an elevated position by a latch. The strap actuator may be coupled to a handle actuator by one or more linkages, or the strap actuator and handle actuator may be a one-piece rigid member that rotates about a single pivot on the moveable frame. A coupling member may extend between a left and right strap actuator proximal to the back end of the strap actuators and the safety strap may be attached to the coupling member.

Electrochemical Heat Transfer System

Publication number: 9,464,822

Application number: 13/029,006

A heat transfer system includes a working fluid and an electrochemical compressor. The working fluid is made up of a polar solvent that primarily acts as a condensable refrigerant and hydrogen that primarily acts as an electrochemically-active component. The electrochemical compressor includes an inlet fluidly coupled to an evaporator to receive the working fluid; an outlet fluidly coupled to a condenser; and one or more electrochemical cells electrically connected to each other through a power supply. Each electrochemical cell includes a gas pervious anode, a gas pervious cathode, and an electrolytic membrane disposed between and in intimate electrical contact with the cathode and the anode to pass the working fluid.

LUBRICATION ARROW REST

Publication number: 9,459,069

Application number: 14/158,923

A lubricating arrow rest is configured to lubricate an arrow shaft when the arrow is inserted into the arrow rest and then shot. A lubricating arrow rest has a plurality of whiskers configured within a whisker retainer and a lubricant receiving feature configured to accept a lubricant into the lubricating arrow rest. A lubricant reservoir may be attached to a lubricant receiver feature and may have a lubricant dispensing feature to force lubricant from the lubricant reservoir onto the whiskers through a supply orifice. A whisker retainer may comprise a retainer conduit that disperses the lubricant through a plurality of outlet orifices configured around the inner perimeter of the whisker retainer. A lubricating arrow rest may have a bow fixture for attachment to a bow. A lubricant reservoir may be coupled to the bow fixture and a bow fixture conduit may couple the lubricant reservoir with a supply orifice.

ACTIVE COMPONENTS AND MEMBRANES FOR ELECTROCHEMICAL COMPRESSION

Publication number: 9,457,324

Application number: 13/943,619

A compound membrane for use in electrochemical devices is disclosed. The compound membrane has of proton-conducting polymer cast in a porous media having dispersed therein at least one active ingredients. It supplies considerably improved performance data in comparison to known membranes. The compound membrane electrode can be produced by treating proton-conducting polymers with acetone to obtain polymer pulp, then sulfonating the polymer pulp, combining one or more active ingredients with the polymer pulp and casting the polymer pulp to obtain the membrane.

BUILDING INTEGRATED WIND ENERGY POWER ENHANCER SYSTEM

Publication number: 9,453,494

Application number: 14/960,286

An omnidirectional building integrated wind energy power enhancer system is configured to produce electrical power from a wind turbine(s) concealed within and/or on top of a building by means of a flow of pressurized air from the prevailing wind that enters and flows through a portion of a building. A building may provide large exterior surface areas for receiving and directing airflow to the turbine(s). At least a portion of the wind energy power enhancer system is configured within a building, such as between floors, on a single floor, and/or a roof structure. The wind turbine(s) may be configured to receive airflow directly from an inflow chamber that is configured with a building, or from a flow tube coupled with the inflow chamber. Air deflectors may be fixed or dynamic to direct air flow into a flow tube regardless of the direction of the incoming airflow relative to the building.
