  • Patent number: 8262665
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a surgical guide and accompanying depth bur with a method for its use during sinus elevation surgery utilizing the Caldwell-Luc Osteotomy procedure. The surgical guide of the present invention provides accurate transfer of the parameters of the surgical osteotomy to be performed during sinus elevation surgery. It bridges the gap between the precise information obtained from the CT scan and the surgical field on which this surgical plan must be placed. This is accomplished by the use of the surgical guide which is constructed based on the information in the CT scan and the treatment plan prepared utilizing 3-D imaging software.

  • Patent number: 8246740
    Abstract: Spent Claus catalyst having a high alumina content is used as an ingredient in the manufacture of Portland cements in place of all or a portion of a conventional source of alumina. The spent Claus catalyst is preferably of a small particle size and can be ground to the desired fineness before mixing with the other ingredients that are heated in a conventional kiln to produce the cement composition. Finely ground spent Claus catalyst can also be used as an additive at levels of 0.1% to 2% by weight to increase the thickening time of shallow casing cement slurries.

  • Patent number: 8242233
    Abstract: This invention relates to a method of preparing poly(arylene sulfide) (PAS) from an iodo compound and a sulfur compound, and more particularly, to a method of preparing PAS, including adding a sulfur-containing polymerization terminator when PAS is produced using an iodo compound as an intermediate. Thereby, in final PAS, the residual iodine content may be maintained at the same level or decreased and other properties may be maintained at equal or superior levels, thanks to the use of the sulfur-containing polymerization terminator, which is much lower in price than conventional polymerization terminators.

  • Patent number: 8241430
    Abstract: A method for accurately controlling the directional and turning movement of a self-propelled robotic pool cleaner while cleaning a pool includes the steps of propelling the pool cleaner in a first direction along a generally straight path from a first sidewall toward an opposing sidewall of the pool, wherein said pool cleaner is propelled to a position in the pool corresponding to a distance greater than the midpoint between the first sidewall and the opposing sidewall and before contacting the opposing sidewall of the pool; stopping the pool cleaner at the position and pivoting the pool cleaner to a predetermined angular change in direction; and reversing direction and resuming propulsion of the pool cleaner, wherein the pool cleaner moves in a second direction along a generally straight path that is angularly displaced from the first direction.

  • Patent number: 8240091
    Abstract: Gasket for refrigerator cabinets of the kind including a soft bellows-type portion used for sealing the area between the cabinet and the door and extending from a base portion able to match the outer door and/or inner door of the refrigerator cabinet. The base portion is substantially rigid and has at one end, a sealing portion made of substantially soft material extending toward the inner door. The soft material portion has good flexible and spring back features when exposed to refrigerator and freezer temperatures. These features make the gasket able to further seal, preferably by compression, the space located between the cabinet and inner door in a more internal area of the refrigerator cabinet. Furthermore, the soft sealing portion is independent and free from constraints with respect to the soft bellows-type portion.
