Abstract: An improved multipurpose funnel system for filling a container, which prevents liquid from overflowing, is self venting and is capable of filling hard to reach container locations. The system has a funnel removably coupled to a bottle cartridge which holds bottles therein. A pair of parallel rods hingedly connected to the bottle cartridge and having at least one hollow cone shaped spike extending outwardly therefrom. The funnel has a downspout having venting tubes, and a cap having an elongated threaded tip. The cap and downspout each include semi-circular plates which work in conjunction together as a check valve mechanism for controlling the flow of liquid therethrough. The check valve mechanism includes a closed first position, intermediate second position, and opened third position.
Abstract: A winter liner system, including a hunter knit liner for wear underneath a protective helmet. The hunter knit liner fully encircles, and partially covers, the head of the wearer and includes a decorative exterior layer, an interior layer, and an interior foam layer sandwiched therebetween. The liner has two ear flaps extending downwardly to cover ears, and a looping band on each ear flap for holding the chinstrap of the helmet. At least one ear flap includes a side pocket integrated therein. The liner includes an elongated bill extending downwardly and horizontally across the front portion. The bill has an exterior surface which adheres directly to the front of the helmet. A plurality of snapping mechanisms, which include male snap heads embedded within the helmet and cooperating female snap receptacles integrated into the liner, removably securing the liner into the helmet.
Abstract: A material unloader has a frame for removably mounting to the side of a dump truck. The frame has a platform, a pair of longitudinal flanges coupled together by a stabilizing bracket, a plurality of cross-braces extending between the flanges, inclined side walls, a back plate and a height adjustment chain. The platform supports a chain driven conveyor assembly including an endless drive mechanism having a pair of parallel drive chains connected together by a plurality of bars. The assembly includes a lower end drivably located about a pair of drive sprockets secured to a transverse drive shaft, and an upper end trained about idler sprockets mounted on a traverse shaft. The unloader has a power train powered by a hydraulic fluid system of the dump truck, and includes a hydraulic motor, a gearbox and a driveshaft.
Abstract: A laser powered cleaning system for cleaning pollutants and debris from both sides of automobile windshields and windows. The system includes an electromagnetic interior block having a top surface having a plurality of focused laser beams, and a magnetic exterior block having a top surface including a reflective surface. The windshield or window is situated between the interior and exterior blocks which pass over the window for cleaning. A power cord connected to an adapter plugs into an automobile power outlet for supplying power. A safety sensor is integrally coupled to the interior block for actuating the system when safe. The system is fixable onto a windshield or window within a door of an automobile. An on-off switch actuates the fixed system.
Abstract: An improved multipurpose funnel system for filling a container which prevents overflow during filling is self venting and is capable of filling hard to reach container locations. The system has a funnel removably coupled to a bottle cartridge which holds bottles therein. A pair of parallel rods hingedly connected to the bottle cartridge and having at least one hollow cone shaped spike extending outwardly therefrom. The funnel has a downspout having venting tubes, an elongated tip and a ball and socket mechanism. The elongated tip includes a check valve having an inside sleeve having an opening, and a spring. The inside sleeve extends outwardly and inwardly from the elongated tip, which opens and closes the opening. The elongated tip has an exterior lip extending outwardly therefrom.
Abstract: A localized controlled air regulation system that includes a control unit, an actuator interface module and a valve assembly, wherein the control unit makes a localized connection to an air distribution device that is connected to the actuator interface module to regulate the flow of air through the valve assembly via commands received from the control unit.
Abstract: A combination closure-cup assembly including a rotatably removable cup for securing to a bottle. The bottle having an inner cavity, frusto-conical neck and spout including external threading, and an annual peripheral flange extending outwardly from the frusto-conical neck below the external threading. The cup has a first end having a circular flat bottom including a scalloped rim, a second end, and a frusto-conical neck portion connecting the first and second end. The cup includes an outer surface, an internal cavity having threading, an inwardly recessed straw aperture, and a leak proof seal. The outer surface has a plurality of axial ribs.
Abstract: A dual pump water treatment system for automatically replenishing the water level within a tank of a marine reef aquarium by alternating between a calcium solution reservoir and an alkalinity solution reservoir. The calcium reservoir is in connection with a first pump, while the alkalinity reservoir is in connection with a second pump. The system includes a pair of water level sensors in communication with a solid state relay on a printed circuit board of a switch box. When the water level drops the sensor triggers the relay to turn on the calcium reservoir. When the water level is replenished the first pump is turned off. When the water level drops again, the sensor triggers the relay to turn on the alkalinity reservoir. When the water level is replenished the second pump is turned off. The cycle is repeated based on water level in the tank.
Abstract: An indoor air purification system and method of same includes a case which removably attaches to an exhaust of cleaning equipment. An air purification chamber housed within the case includes an intake and exhaust wall and side walls, including a first side wall having an outside and inside surface. The intake and exhaust walls of the chamber are covered by aluminum metal mesh filters with a titanium dioxide coating. An ultraviolet-A blacklight blue is mounted to the inside surface of the first side wall of the chamber and includes an elongated u-shaped lamp for activating the titanium dioxide coating. An ultraviolet-C germicidal light for ultraviolet germicidal irradiation is mounted above the ultraviolet-A blacklight blue within the chamber and includes an elongated u-shaped lamp. A solid state high frequency electronic ballast powers and activates the lamps and converts voltage.
Abstract: A Federal Aviation Administration approved removable, reusable seat headrest apparatus for use as a display device on the seat headrest of a plane. The headrest apparatus includes a frame assembly and an advertising display. The frame assembly includes a first material portion, a second material portion and a median portion connected therebetween. The second material portion has a viewing window for accepting a viewing pocket or an interchangeable display. The interchangeable display includes a frame, molding and transparent insert. The viewing window receives and displays interchangeable advertising material therein, while allowing travelers to selectively review and retain the materials.
