  • Patent number: 4301793
    Abstract: A sigh producing mechanism in a blower type positive pressure respirator. In breathing, a normal person will occasionally take a deep breath, a sigh, to break the monotony of regular breathing. In artificial respiration, such occasional sighs are also desired. The sigh is produced by an increase in the speed of the blower for a few breathing cycles. To produce the sigh, the resistance to the blower motor is reduced and this is accomplished with the aid of a timer to space the sigh intervals and limit the duration of the sigh cycles.

  • Patent number: 4282044
    Abstract: A composition and method whereby aluminum scrap, including consumer scrap, is recycled into aluminum sheet and aluminum containers. Aluminum scrap is melted in a heated furnace to form a melt composition. The melt is adjusted to form the present composition, consisting essentially of silicon, 0.1-1.0%; iron 0.1-0.9%; manganese 0.4-1.0%; magnesium 1.3-2.5%; copper 0.05-0.4%; and titanium, 0-0.2%, the balance being essentially aluminum. Aluminum scrap comprising consumer scrap, plant scrap, and can making scrap is heated to form the melt composition, which requires a minimum amount of adjustment to arrive at the present alloy composition. The composition is then cast and fabricated into sheet having strength and formability properties making it suitable for container manufacture. Container manufacture according to the process and composition of the present invention comprises drawn-and-ironed can body manufacture and easy-opening end manufacture.

  • Patent number: 4274663
    Abstract: Multiple wall drill pipe adapted for use in a drill pipe string comprising an outer pipe member; an inner pipe member disposed within the outer pipe member; and means for releasably connecting the inner pipe member and the outer pipe member in fixed axial relationship under force loads applied in use during a drilling operation while enabling relative rotary movement between the inner pipe member and the outer pipe member during a rotary drilling operation to relieve torsional stress thereon, and for permitting the removal of the inner pipe member from the outer pipe member by relative axial displacement therebetween caused by application to the inner pipe member of only an axially directed force load in excess of the axially directed force loads applied to the inner pipe member in use during a normal drilling operation.

  • Patent number: 4267771
    Abstract: A can printing machine of the type having a rotating assembly of mandrels contacting a rotating printing blanket for transferring decoration from the blanket to cans on the mandrels is provided with mandrel assemblies which are axially alignable with the printing blanket to permit axially uniform decoration of the cans. Each mandrel assembly comprises a rigid central member; a cylindrical sleeve mounted on the central member for receiving thereon a can to be printed; first mounting means pivotably mounting the sleeve to the central member at an axial midline of the can; and second mounting means accommodating pivoting and positioning the sleeve in a rest position to permit loading and unloading of the cans. Since the sleeve rotates relative to the central member to transfer circumferential decoration from the printing blanket to the can, the first and second mounting means permit rotation of the sleeve and rotatable pivoting.

  • Patent number: 4254173
    Abstract: A secondary container packaging material for use in six pack can wraps, six pack bottle carriers, twelve pack carriers, etc., comprising a composite of a paper material laminated to a plastic film. The plastic film provides tear resistance to the composite, so that paper material may be used which has a tear resistance less than that of other secondary packaging paper materials. The reduced tear resistance allows the use of paper having a lower caliper, basis weight, and, therefore, cost than conventional secondary container packaging material. Natural kraft paper and recycled paper of 12-16 point caliper are preferred for use with the present composite. The plastic film may be 0.25-2 mils thick and is preferably formed of polyethylene terpthalate, polyethylene, polyvinylchloride, polypropylene, or cellophane. The preferred films are transparent and permit reverse printing on their inner surface to provide abrasion resistant decoration visible through the film.
