  • Publication number: 20200062891
    Abstract: The invention relates to an unsaturated polyester resin comprising fumaric acid and optional end-capping with an ethylenically unsaturated moiety, which is useful for the preparation of engineered stone. The unsaturated polyester resin can be further processed to obtain a formable composition which can be cured to finally yield engineered stone as composite material. The thus obtained engineered stone shows a high resistance to UV- and sunlight as well as to weathering. The invention also relates to a method for the preparation of engineered stone as well as to the use of the unsaturated polyester resin for the preparation of engineered stone.

  • Patent number: 9360103
    Abstract: Energy loss in a dip lubrication system is reduced by reducing the immersion depth of the gear within a pool of oil. This can be accomplished by increasing the pressure within the dip lubrication system which effectively reduces the flow rate of the oil so that the oil remains separated from the oil pool for a longer period of time thereby reducing the oil level and the immersion depth of the gear within the oil pool. Alternately, this can be accomplished by substituting a higher density gas for air which has the same effect. In a third embodiment the immersed gear includes wind vanes that direct air against the oil pool creating a trough which effectively reduces the immersion depth of the gear within the oil pool.

  • Patent number: 8852442
    Abstract: A solid chemical feed unit dissolver has an upper feed unit chamber with an inwardly tapering sealing surface at its lower end and against which a lowermost feed unit seals, retaining the upper chamber in a dry condition, preventing wetting and caking of solid chemical feed units behind the dissolving and sealed off face of the solid chemical feed unit. A solid chemical feed unit magazine is slotted to permit gentle feeding of a plurality of solid chemical feed units therein and a cover-defined sight slot permits guiding and visual observation of remaining solid chemical feed units in the magazine. The magazine preferably, but not necessarily, defines the tapering sealing surface. Distinctly shaped solid chemical feed units are disclosed. The dissolver can handle large solid chemical feed unit loads up to one hundred pounds or more and in a small footprint stable configuration. Methods are disclosed.
