  • Patent number: 4753332
    Abstract: A start and shift clutch arrangement for motor vehicles with a disk clutch which during the sliding or friction generating phase is supplied with lubricating and cooling oil, and which runs dry when fully engaged or disengaged. The disk clutch is flooded in the area of the outer disks, whereby the maximum filling is limited by a first standpipe, and rapid emptying takes place via a second standpipe in conjunction with a control valve. Particularly advantageous is a self-contained lubricating system, which fills the clutch space during the sliding phase via an oil reservoir and an accumulator by a timed solenoid valve, utilizing compressed air. The accumulator equipped with a piston effects thereby alternately its own filling, and that of the clutch space.

  • Patent number: 4753770
    Abstract: This invention relates to a control system for heat supply as hot water from nuclear power plants equipped with condensation units. This leads to the increased efficiency of the nuclear power plant on the basis of heat extraction from the turbine and its utilization for district heating with hot water as agent. The system requires a turbine nonadjustable bleeding through which a steam flow is extracted. A flow nozzle for steam flow measurement is provided on the steam transport line, a pressure transducer which sends a signal to a comparing and control unit which receives also a signal from another pressure transducer located on the turbine first stage. The comparing and control unit actuates the motorized steam and condensate valves, performing the turbine protection in case that the steam flow extracted at the nonadjustable bleeding exceeds the allowed limit.

  • Patent number: 4752958
    Abstract: The device obtains several characteristic parameters from a standard sentence said by a speaker and compares them with average parameters of the same speaker stored in an internal memory and previously calculated. According to the comparison, it obtains a probability value that the sentence spoken belongs to that speaker and compares the value with a threshold normalized to the average parameter variance by a threshold calculation circuit. If the threshold is overcome, the device considers the speaker verified. A circuit determines the real instants of sentence beginning and end using a noise-adaptive threshold in order to limit between these two instants the time interval over which characteristic parameters are to be calculated. A circuit aligns as to time the characteristic parameters just calculated to the parameters of a reference sentence, obtaining standard lengths of the sounds composing the sentence spoken.

  • Patent number: 4751819
    Abstract: The compressor compresses a high pressure fluid such as gas or steam in a working chamber provided with a thermo-regenerator connected in parallel. Said fluid is alternatingly brought to a high temperature in the warm portion of the chamber by means of a heat supply and is taken down to a reduced temperature in the cold portion of the chamber by means of a refrigerator. The cold portion communicates with a fluid separator comprised of two chambers which are sealingly separated by means of a piston or an elastic membrane. The chamber of the fluid separator connected with the cold portion of the working chamber forms together with the latter a primary circuit of the compressor which uses as working fluid helium, hydrogen or an overheated steam of a condensable fluid. The second chamber is connected with two pressurized containers through two return valves with opposite passage and wherein the working fluid (liquid, gas-oil mixture) is stored at two different pressures.

  • Patent number: 4750312
    Abstract: An apparatus for fitting heat-sealed containers comprises a conveyor for displacing a succession of the containers in a normal direction of travel through a station and for arresting each of the containers momentarily in the station, a supply at the station holding a stack of caps, a grab for taking a cap off the stack and positioning it atop the container arrested in the station and a welding tool for tack welding the cap to the container in the station as the cap is being positioned on the container and while it is still held by the grab, and a device downstream of the station for heat shrinking the caps on the bottles. The welding tool and grab are practically the same device and work very closely together. Thus there is no time during which the cap is not being positively held. Before the grab releases it, it is tack-welded to the bottle.
