  • Patent number: 4311942
    Abstract: A compact fluorescent lamp with a screw-in plug to fit conventional screw sockets which operates at 20-30 watts and provides the lumen output of a 75-100 watt lamp. The lamp is essentially a hollow cylinder with a glass envelope for the two outer walls. The space between the two outer walls is partitioned to constrain the arc discharge to follow a designated path around the inner surface of the lamp. Efficiency is promoted by novel ballast design. The screw-in fluorescent lamp contains a coil in the center of the lamp which creates a diverging magnetic field which causes the arc discharge to spread and may also serve the dual purpose of limiting arc current. Arc spreading coils of several designs are disclosed to provide oriented diverging magnetic fields, rotating diverging magnetic fields and magnetic fields shaped to the lamp envelope with which they are employed.

  • Patent number: 4248162
    Abstract: A table having a table top having a top surface. Grilles are provided in the table top and are in flow communication with an electrostatic precipitator for purifying the air. The electrostatic precipitator collects the smoke particles on a filter, the clean, filtered air being discharged at low velocity back into the room. This table equipped with air cleaner and filter prevents smoke generated by smokers and in ashtrays from diffusing throughout the room by capturing the smoke close to the source of the impurities.

  • Patent number: 4187446
    Abstract: A compact fluorescent lamp with a screw-in plug to fit conventional screw sockets which operates at 20-30 watts and provides the lumen output of a 75-100 watt lamp. The lamp is essentially a hollow cylinder with a glass envelope for the two outer walls. The space between the two outer walls is partitioned to constrain the arc discharge to follow a zigzag path around the surface of the lamp. The design parameters are such that the lumen output per square inch of phosphor is greater than from conventional tubular fluorescents. Efficiency is promoted by novel ballast design. The ballast fits into the hollow center of the lamp. The ballast is constructed of special shape to spread the arc within the evacuated glass envelope, thus reducing the current density and the total current, but maintaining the lumen output of the phosphor.

  • Patent number: 4166769
    Abstract: A solar energy device comprising a body having a plurality of spaced focusing lenses to concentrate direct and reflected rays from the sun. A heat receiving member is inside of said body. One of the body and the member is expansible and contractible so as to direct the member into exact convergence with the focal points of said lenses. The member is supported within said body and fed fluid to be heated. The heated fluid is then removed from the member. The heat receiving member that is expansible and contractible may be employed separately and used as a prime mover.

  • Patent number: 4144989
    Abstract: A granular material dispenser especially adapted for the pouring of granular materials, such as soap powder, powdered milk, coffee, and the like, whereby a pre-determined amount of the material can be dispensed with each tilting and pouring so that an adequate measure of the ingredient necessary can be easily dispensed. The concept of this invention features attaching a receptacle to the package of granular material and by the use of baffles to fill a reservoir when the package is first overturned, setting the reservoir in a pouring position when the package is raised, and then dispensing the predetermined amount of granular material when the package is again overturned and the lid opened. An adjustable baffle may be provided to permit for varied measure.

  • Patent number: 4107247
    Abstract: This invention relates to a method for the manufacture of plastic sandwich element in which a first extruder is charged with essential ingredients for productions of foamed cellular plastic at a predetermined temperature.
