Abstract: A fluid applicator system having a proximal end portion that has a male portion that can be connected to a female inner threaded hub that in turn is attached to a source of a fluid supply. The distal end terminates in a ball that is flocked with bristles that are adhered perpendicularly to the ball. The proximal end and the distal end is fluidly connected by a series of cylindrical tubes that are of decreasing outer diameter from the proximal end in the direction of the distal end.
Abstract: A dispenser for elongated rod-like articles. The dispenser has a housing which has a trap chamber rotatable cylinder wherein the trap gravitationally captures from the bottom of a pile, one at a time, one of the rod-like articles and arcuately moves it by means of the cylinder to a downwardly facing position from whence the rod-like article falls onto a chute. The housing is loaded from a cartridge which contains the rod-like articles and is inserted on top of the housing when in use. The cylinder is constructed of a plurality of spaced apart discs each of which has a radially extending notch in alignment with one another to thereby define an elongated trap for the rod-like articles to be dispensed.
Abstract: A suction device is disclosed comprising an elongated tubular metal handle portion having a predetermined uniform diameter suction bore therethrough and a spigot connection portion for connection to a hospital suction source. The device further comprises a selected metal probe having a predetermined uniform diameter suction passage therethrough and terminating in a suction tip. The inner diameter of the probe is less than the inner diameter of the handle portion. The proximal end of the probe has a non-metallic secured sleeve thereabout. The outer diameter of the sleeve is detailed to frictionally engage an inner wall end portion of the handle opposite to the spigot connection portion. The selected probe may be of varying diameters which is fitted with a selected diameter dimensioned sleeve whereby the probe fits within the selected and the probe carrying sleeve fits removably frictionally within the tubular metal handle.
Abstract: A joint has a plurality of synthetic resin hollow tubes inserted a plurality of resin-coated steel pipes which are formed by applying a coating resin on a surface of a thin wall steel pipe and are formed with at least one pair of fitting ribs extending in an axial direction on the coating resin for holding an edge of a partitioning body, in order to connect the resin-coated steel pipes in an intersecting fashion. The joint also includes slits which permit a pair of fitting ribs of the resin-coated steel pipes therethrough, are formed on reentrant side of at least adjacent two hollow tubes among a plurality of hollow tubes at positions in one plane extending across respective axes of the hollow tubes and extending over the entire length, and cover ribs which are formed integrally with the hollow tubes and extending along both sides of the entire length of the slits for covering outer side surfaces of a pair of fitting ribs of the resin-coated steel pipe.
Abstract: An improved nozzle for poultry washer nozzle for insertion into the cavity of an eviscerated poultry. The washer has an axial central tube upon which is mounted a rotatable cylinder as a distal portion and a proximate rib portion spaced from said tube. Orifices between the tube and internally of the cylinder provides cleansing liquid to the inside of the cylinder from which it flows through tangential offices in the cylinder. The proximate rib portion is detailed to center the poultry about the washer.
Abstract: An oscillatory floor surface for standing thereupon. The surface is supported at at least three points each having two circular cups mounted above one another. Each has a spherical depression in confrontation to define a space. A ball is in the space. The cups being affixed to each other by an elastic annular casing. The casing being held to each of the cups by a band.
Abstract: An apparatus for determining the position of the center of gravity of a test body with a test-body receiving plate supported on at least two weighing systems with short displacement in which device the position of the center of gravity is calculated from the particular bearing forces on the weighing systems that the connection between the test-body receiving plate (2) and the weighing systems (12, 13) takes place by means of coupling elements (22, 23) which are permanently connected by their one end to the test-body receiving plate (2), which are connected permanently by their other end to a weighing system (12, 13) and which are designed to be elastically flexible by means of at least one thin area (33, 34) defining a horizontal axis of rotation. This avoids an undefined introduction of force possibly overlaid by frictional forces and frictional moments into the weighing systems and thus increases the measuring accuracy.

Abstract: A medical/surgical suction device of three essential main parts. The first part is a metal tube having a proximal port and a distal port. The proximal part is attached to a have or flexible tube that is connected to a vacuum source. The distal end has plugged into it a portion of a sleeve. The other portion of the sleeve extends therefrom and carries coaxially the a thin tube. The other end is the suction end. The sleeve may be de-mounted from the metal tube whereby the sleeve may be cleaned apart from the metal tube. The metal tube has a port intermediate its proximal part and its distal part which acts as a valve to permit.
Abstract: The present invention provides a saline solution containing elongated trough which is mounted at the end portions of four non-electrically conducting posts. The trough has an ingress funnel arrangement designed to restrict the thrashing of to-be-electrically stunned birds and an elongated grid having a portion immersed in the solution and a downstream portion out of the solution. The four posts extend upwardly and terminate in threaded portions. A frame carriage is provided which has four corners and at the four corners are suitably mounted driven gears with internal bores and threads adapted to engagingly rotate about the threaded portions of the posts. The carriage is suitably affixed to a conventional I-beam to which is movingly mounted a conventional endless cable and spaced shackle system for conveying upside down birds.
