  • Patent number: 8864253
    Abstract: A refrigeration device, in particular a refrigerator and/or freezer, includes a housing with a top, a base, lateral walls and a rear wall as external walls, a door, an interior compartment situated in the housing and surrounded by internal walls and a front frame for thermally decoupling the internal walls from the external walls, the lateral walls being thermally insulated from the other walls by an additional insulation strip. The invention is characterized in that the entry of heat from the exterior into the interior compartment via the lateral walls can be significantly reduced by the thermal decoupling of the lateral walls, thus significantly increasing the efficiency of the refrigeration device.

  • Publication number: 20070003409
    Abstract: A device for application in a fan configuration is configured, in particular, to be directly driven by an electric motor. In the fan configuration, a centrifugal fan wheel is mounted to rotate in unison with a drive shaft. The centrifugal fan wheel, for producing a directed airflow, is surrounded by a fan housing. A seal is disposed in an admission orifice, for largely filling in an air gap between the centrifugal fan wheel and the inner surface of the fan housing. Such a configuration improves the housing and sealing thereof for an application in a vacuum cleaner by having the sealing device be embodied as a sealing ring linked to a buffer part out of the fan housing, which part tightly surrounds the admission orifice.
