  • Patent number: 7524559
    Abstract: Resin particles comprised of an acrylic resin. Not only is the maximum compression deformation ratio thereof as great as 60% or more but also the load required for 60% compression deformation is as small as 60 mN or less. Wiring boards are therefore coupled in using an anisotropic conductive adhesive obtained by first manufacturing conductive particles having a conductive coating formed on a resin particle surface of the resin particles by adhering a conductive material to the surface of the above resin particles as a core. On dispersing the conductive particles in an adhesive material, the conductive particles sandwiched between metallic wires of the wiring boards are greatly deformed by a small load, so that the electrical devices having a high conduction reliability can be obtained.

  • Patent number: 4413018
    Abstract: A method of processing oat groats for imparting shelf stability to the groats by inactivating the enzymes of the groat without causing oxidation. By the subject invention the enzymes of the dehulled oats are deactivated by steaming, boiling or toasting. The boiled and steamed groats are then dried at a temperature and for a length of time sufficient that will not cause oxidation. The resulting toasted groats have increased shelf stability with good organoleptic attributes and may be prepared for consumption by boiling in water.

  • Patent number: 4376089
    Abstract: A binder system is disclosed which incorporates an internal release agent and comprises a mixture of polyisocyanate resin, furfural and an ester of phosphoric acid. In the process of the invention the ester of phosphoric acid is placed into solution with furfural and subsequently blended with the polyisocyanate. Increased stability of the binder system is observed as well as providing for increased mold releasing capabilities.

  • Patent number: 4353932
    Abstract: Microbiologically stable intermediate moisture batters for preparing microbiologically stable pancakes, both of which can be maintained at refrigerator temperature for extended periods of time are disclosed. The batters contain relatively high levels of shortening and total sugar content in a ratio to water of 0.3-0.6:1.0. Such a relatively low total sugar content allows flour content and other ingredients to approximate the levels found in homemade batters, while the water activity of the batter is kept below 0.95 for a refrigerator stable product, and the water activity of the resulting pancake is below 0.88.

  • Patent number: 4348343
    Abstract: A method and composition for forming a dry free-flowing particulate solid is disclosed which utilizes a novel binder system for bonding particles of carbon, sand and/or other solid particulate materials. The solid, non-sticky binder system comprises furfural, solid resin, (such as a phenolic resin), which is not sticky at room temperature and is soluble in furfural, and a liquid amine having free hydrogens on the amine nitrogen which amine is capable of reacting with furfural. This system is capable of adhering to such particles while retaining the free-flowing characteristics of the particles. The free-flowing particulate solid thus formed may be shaped, extruded or compression molded as necessary to form the desired article. A shaped mass of this particulate material is converted to an integral mass by warming or compressing. While the binder is curable at room temperature over a long period of time, the cure rate may be accelerated by increases in temperature.

  • Patent number: 4274770
    Abstract: A tool for deburring conduit and other piping is described. The tool is cylindrical with a stepped bore, having cutting blades mounted on each landing. Each succeeding bore is of a diameter that corresponds to a standard size of conduit. When the leading edges of a length of conduit is inserted to make contact with the cutting blades and rotated, the burrs are removed.

  • Patent number: 4248150
    Abstract: A flood bar actuator for initiating the flood cycle in a universal screen printing machine is described. The squeegee assembly is mounted for vertical movement relative to the screen. The flood bar assembly is mounted adjacent the squeegee assembly, with an inner end fixedly mounted to an accessory support, and an outer end pivotally attached to the inner end. A peg extending from the squeegee assembly forces the flood bar up in the print cycle and allows the flood bar to drop onto the screen during the flood cycle. The height of the flood bar is adjustable through the rotation of the screw seated in an opening formed by a split support block forming the opening. A first half of the split support block is pivotally attached to the inner flood bar support as described, while the flood bar is supported from the second movable half. This second movable half has a threaded channel formed in its walls while the first channel has smooth walls.

  • Patent number: 4242199
    Abstract: An aerator apparatus for use in waste treatment plants and the like for imparting oxygen to the waste water forced through the apparatus by an axial flow impeller. The entire apparatus may be submerged, resting on the bottom of the body of water and has an intake area for directing water from the bottom of the body of water through the apparatus. The water is forced into a discharge chamber where it is aerated and agitated by a compressed oxidizing gas, such as air, through an array of ports surrounding the discharge chamber. From the discharge chamber the aerated water is directed out of the apparatus on a generally horizontal plane into the surrounding body of water. In one embodiment, the flow of water may be drawn from a certain direction and discharged in the same or opposite direction, as desired, to maintain a flow or current pattern in conjunction with a plurality of like aerators.

  • Patent number: 4233897
    Abstract: A screen printing machine is described which multiplies the normal carriage stroke of a printing machine to allow printing on the surfaces of large objects of revolution. The drive means comprises a sprocket-chain assembly with a chain connected to the carriage drive for following its lateral reciprocal movement. The sprocket is fixedly mounted in axial alignment with a pinion gear for rotation about that axis. The pinion gear in turn is engaged with a rack gear mounted on the screen. As the sprocket rotates, the pinion gear drives the rack and screen in lateral motion. The ratio of pinion gear diameter size to sprocket diameter size governs the stroke length of the screen. With a large (2 to 1 or 3 to 1) ratio the screen stroke or lateral movement of the screen may be doubled or tripled in length.

  • Patent number: 4231676
    Abstract: A Type I Traffic Barricade is described having a reflective panel mounted between a pair of leg supports. Each leg support has two legs pivotally secured together at an upper end and in a spaced relationship by a pair of brackets on opposing sides of the leg support. The brackets are placed into slots formed on an underside of the reflective panel and, with the legs spread for the widest possible stance at their lower end, the upper end is biased against the reflective panel for complete and stable vertical and lateral support, while allowing easy set-up and knock down with minimum space requirements for storage.

  • Patent number: 4222624
    Abstract: The electric interface of the subject invention physically and electrically couples an electric connector to a printed circuit board, and employs one or more projections on the underside of the interface to engage a shoulder on the top of the connector for positively locking the interface and the connector together. This positive locking mechanism may be easily disengaged by pressing on a lever arm on the top of the interface which employs its mechanical advantage to disengage the interface from the connector and allow separation from the connector.
