  • Patent number: 5246671
    Abstract: The invention provides a continuous moving bed reactor, useful for the prration of 3,7-diacetyl-1,3,5,7-tetraazabicyclo-3.3.1-nonane (DAPT). The reactor makes novel use of water, a known catalyst for said reaction. However, in this invention, the water is present as ice. The ice is made to automatically promote and moderate the reaction as well as regulate the flow of hexamine into the reactor. These automatic functions are achieved by mixing ice with hexamine, the latter is one of two principle reactants used, to generate a standing bed of slurry. When melted at its base, the slurry advanced under the influence of gravity. The melting of the ice being caused by local application of the second principle reactant, acetic anhydride, which is a liquid.The apparatus is constructed in the following way. A tube shaped reservoir for containing the cited slurry is open at the top end and terminates at its bottom end by a porous compartment. The latter compartment openly retains the slurry.

  • Patent number: 5241179
    Abstract: A system for remotely detecting liquid contaminants on surfaces, including hemical agents and their simulants is presented. The system includes a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroradiometer aligned to optionally develop graybody photoluminescence spectra from the generation of a plurality of interferograms co-added to provide a favorable signal to noise ratio for use with and thereafter transforming the co-added interferograms. A laser is used for surface irradiating a substrate potentially having the chemical agents to heat the substrate. A shutter controls the laser to receive and record photoluminescence emissions from the heated substrate, and generate a plurality of interferograms co-added to provide a favorable signal to noise ratio for use with the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroradiometer. The co-added interferograms are used to generate molecular absorption resonant peaks which are mathematically processed in the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroradiometer.

  • Patent number: H1224
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an apparatus intended to allow detonon of munitions by the occurrence of a triggering event at a location remote from the actual munition. This apparatus contains a piezoelectric crystal which is deformed by the firing of a conventional blasting cap upon the happening of a triggering event. Deformation of the piezoelectric crystal generates an electric impulse sufficient to initiate an electric blasting cap thereby detonating the munition.

  • Patent number: H1226
    Abstract: A quick disconnect coupling device formed from a female coupling portion a male portion for mating therewith. The outside diameter of the male portion is equal to the inside diameter of the female portion from the axial outer end of the male coupling to a point less than the total distance of penetration and a reduced outside diameter axially inward thereof. Each coupling portion has a valve to close the portions when they are disconnected. The coupling portions are configured to have a difference between the inside diameter of the female coupling portion and the reduced diameter of the male coupling. The female coupling portion is free to rotate about a point of maximum penetration by the male coupling portion to permit quick disconnection upon application of force to the outer end of either of the coupling portions. The edge of the male coupling portion may be tapered inwardly to assist in the rotation.

  • Patent number: H1266
    Abstract: A coupling device for use with a primer and blasting cap in demolition fig devices and the like. The device includes a body portion defining a straight line path from the primer to the blasting cap. Also included is a moveable slide positioned in the body to block the straight line path and moveable to clear that path. A spring is used to act on the slide to clear the path, and a safety pin holds the slide against the spring until firing is desired. A time delay device such as a liquid annular orifice dashpot delays movement of the slide. A preferred embodiment uses two slides and two springs to first clear the path and second place a blasting cap lead in alignment on the path when the slides clear the path.
