Abstract: A compressed powered gun has a receiver with a compressed gas source fastened to one end thereof and an elongated barrel through which projectiles may be sequentially discharged fastened to the other end thereof, A clamp is formed as an integral portion of the receiver and adapted to encircle and be tightened about the barrel near one barrel end to connect the barrel to the receiver, A projectile supply hopper containing a plurality of projectiles supplies projectiles sequentially to the receiver by way of a feed tube which is formed as an integral portion of the receiver, A clamp formed as an integral portion of the feed tube is arranged to encircle and be tightened about a portion of the projectile supply hopper thereby securing the projectile supply hopper to the feed tube portion of the receiver.
Abstract: Non-symmetrical port timing techniques in combination with the 90 degree phase difference between the pumping and combustion chamber of the two stroke migrating combustion chamber engine variant are disclosed as a special cycle of operation which allows a high degree of self supercharging and attendant performance advantages. Other embodiments include; protected fuel injection provisions, externally located induction rotor valves/counterweights to achieve better volumetric efficiency and complete dynamic balance and a technique to improve engine mechanism durability.
Abstract: A refrigeration system is disclosed having first stage and second stage compressors, first stage and second stage evaporator coils, and first stage and second stage condenser coils, each connected together to form first stage and second stage closed loop refrigeration circuits. The two circuits are coupled one to the other by a liquid (water, ethylene glycol of other good heat transfer medium) heat transfer loop which interconnects the second stage evaporator and the first stage condenser to transfer heat from the first stage condenser to the second stage evaporator. A plurality of additional refrigeration circuits may be provided, each including a compressor, an evaporator coil and a condenser coil connected together in a closed loop.
Abstract: An in-line air purifier (110) for removing contaminants from a compressed air line includes an enclosure (112) having a carrying handle (124), a side wall (116) hinged (118) to a base (114), clasps (120, 122) for releasably closing the side wall (116) onto the base (114), and air inlet (126) and outlet (154, 156) couplers carried on the base (114) for coupling the purifier (110) in a compressed air line. A two stage assembly including replaceable cartridges (40, 42, 90) for removing oil and water, a bed (60) of activated charcoal, and a catalytic bed (76) for carbon monoxide is provided within the base (114) and connected between the inlet (126) and outlet (154, 156) couplers for removing contaminants in compressed air passing therethrough. An air monitor (162) is also provided within the base (114) and connected (157, 158, 160) to the outlet coupler (154, 156) for continuously sampling air passing through the outlet coupler (154, 156).
Abstract: A rubber tire component reclamation technique which provides tire rubber fragments classified according to size. Preferred apparatus for rubber tire component reclamation includes a feed hopper for receiving pieces of discarded tires, a granulating chamber coupled to the feed hopper for cutting the received pieces into smaller fragments, and an exit chute providing an output from the granulating chamber through which tire fragments fall. An air flow is induced upwardly through the exit chute to urge the less dense components such as yarn and fabric upwardly against gravity and out of the upper portion of the chute. The air flow is of sufficient force to prevent commingling and compaction of the less dense components with the remaining components of the tire fragments. A magnetized drum is located near the lower end of the exit chute for segregating the ferromagnetic components of the tire fragments.
Abstract: An improved sandpaper cutting guide is disclosed having a series of recesses to receive different sized pieces of sandpaper. The longer side of a standard sized sheet of sandpaper is placed in one of the slots for cutting the sheet in half or the end of the standard sized sheet may be placed in another slot for cutting a one-third sheet piece. A cutting tool is inserted through a slit in the guide and drawn across the guide to cut a selected one of several smaller, also standard, piece sizes from the sheet. The same slit guides the cutting tool for all sizes with size being determined by the recess into which the sheet is placed. Access openings are provided to aid in removal of the cut piece from the guide. Preferably, recesses are provided for cutting the standard sized sheet into halves, thirds, quarters or sixths.
