Abstract: The combination of a chemical feeder for liquid circulating systems comprising a casing provided with a vertically adjustable weir, and a disposable container for chemicals for treatment of the liquid which container is receivable within the casing. The container is provided with an opening for extension therethrough of the weir to a preselected height consonant with the desired concentration of the solution to be formed. The liquid is introduced into said container from the feeder for dissolution of the chemical with the resulting solution flowing downwardly through the weir for ultimate discharge to the associated system.
Abstract: A self-propelling projectile comprising a projectile body at the normally forward end of said projectile, a propellent charge at the normally rearward end of said projectile, and a primer element located between the ends of said projectile for ignition by side firing or percussion; there being means for maintaining said components in integrated relationship and with communication between said primer elements and said propellent charge whereby upon explosion of said propellent charge the force of the latter will be directed against the base of the projectile body.
Abstract: A method for preparing fowl for eating which comprises preliminarily effecting a series of spaced incisions upon the fowl which approximate, but do not extend to, the underlying bone; rubbing into the meat of the fowl, as well as the incisions, salt and then lime juice. A marinade comprising garlic, ginger, yogourt, cooking oil, salt, chili powder, and food coloring is then applied to the fowl and within the aforesaid incisions. A period of refrigeration is then accorded the fowl for conducing to absorption of the marinade and after such period the fowl is allowed to return to room temperature. Thereupon the same is subjected to an oven preheated to a temperature of approximately 800.degree. F. for a predetermined period of time and subsequently after removal has applied thereto a spice preparation.
Abstract: A curtain rail runner having a head part slidable in the curtain rail, and a hook-shaped locking part which is adapted to be engaged in the curtain or the curtain runner fixing tape and which can be bent open manually for such engagement. This curtain rail runner can be opened much more easily when it has to be removed from the tape or the curtain itself because the closure member of the curtain rail runner has two wing members which are adapted to be pressed elastically against one another, and a nose member having a nose which is adapted to engage in the head part when the runner is in the locked position and which is adapted to be snapped out of the detent position when the runner is opened by pressing the wing members against one another.
Abstract: A manually operated label dispensing machine adapted to receive web forming backing material carrying readily detachable, adhesive-coated labels thereon; there being a discharge edge presented for travel thereover of the backing material to effect parting of the material from the supported labels for freeing of the latter. A drive roller is carried upon a drive shaft for cooperating with a driven roller for gripping therebetween the backing material causing pulling of the same about the discharge edge. The drive roller is mounted for rotation by manually applied torque; and the driven roller is supported upon a swing frame for selected disposition in either operative relationship with said drive roller or in inoperative condition.
Abstract: The method of treating halogen-containing plastic refuse which comprises charging same to a bath for immersion therein, the bath being constituted of an inorganic carbonate, such as from the class consisting of alkali and alkaline earth metals; such bath being in a highly particulate condition. The bath is heated to, and maintained at, the appropriate temperature for effecting thermal decomposition of the plastic but below calcination temperature. Such method includes preventing discharge to the atmosphere of the halogenic material released.
