  • Patent number: 4522171
    Abstract: In a pre-combustion or turbulence chamber for an internal combustion engine, an inner molded body, defining an inner chamber, is formed of a material having a thermal conductivity of at least 12 W/(m.multidot.K). An outer body is secured to the outer surface of the inner body by shrinking or glueing. The outer body is formed of a thermally insulating ceramic material having a thermal conductivity of less than 10 W/(m.multidot.K). Due to the low thermal conductivity of the outer molded body, the inner molded body is insulated against heat losses. The higher thermal conductivity of the inner molded body has the effect that, in the interior of the pre-combustion or turbulence chamber, the point at which the cold fuel jet impinges during the injection process is only slightly cooled.

  • Patent number: 4522415
    Abstract: A piston ring (1) made of ceramic materials for an internal combustion engine comprising a body made by sintering of partially stabilized zirconium oxide (PSZ) which has a porosity <3% and, rolling surface (4) of the piston ring having a centerline average roughness R.sub.a of 0.03 to 0.1 .mu.m. Due to its homogeneous structure, the inventive piston ring avoids the problems of the ceramic/metal bond of known piston rings and, even under high thermal load, does not suffer from thermally induced destruction or welding of the piston ring groove.

  • Patent number: 4495029
    Abstract: A method for the coating of a raw paper or cardboard substrate wherein the substrate is prepared having a pH of less than about 6.5, and a coating is applied thereto composed of an aqueous dispersion of a plastic and an inorganic pigment, the coating having a pH of more than about 6.5 wherein the particles of the plastic in the dispersion have a non-cation-active charge and wherein the coating also contains a material which does not affect the preparation or storage stability of the coating, but which in the pH range below about 6.5 becomes highly cation-active, and then drying the thus applied coating. Using this method, the coating solidifies at the time of contact of the coating and the paper surface thereby minimizing penetration of the coating into the paper. As a result, improved coated papers are obtained.

  • Patent number: 4480950
    Abstract: A cutting tool, such as a turning tool, includes a clamping holder with a recess in one of its surfaces, a cutting bit insertable into the recess, and a clamping shoe secured to the clamping holder by a clamping bolt. The clamping shoe has a projecting member engageable within a depression located in the surface of the cutting bit for securing the cutting bit in the recess of the clamping holder. The depression is defined in the surface of the cutting bit by a closed line formed in part by convexly curved first lines and by second lines interconnecting the ends of the first lines. The depression, as viewed in plan, has an oblong or star-shaped configuration. The lines defining such configuration can be convex, concave or rectilinear. The surface of the depression within the closed line is formed by a radius centered at points located outwardly from the surface of the cutting bit containing the depression. Accordingly, the length of the radius is greater than the depth of the depression.

  • Patent number: 4477212
    Abstract: A cutting tool, such as a turning tool, includes a clamping holder on which a clamping shoe is secured. The clamping shoe has a curved surface projecting member adjacent one end for securing a cutting bit in a recess in a first surface on the clamping holder. The projecting member seats within a shaped recess in the cutting bit. Guide cams are located adjacent the opposite end of the clamping shoe and contact a second surface on the clamping holder inclined relative to the first surface. A clamping bolt located between the projecting member and the guide cams secures the clamping shoe to the clamping holder. A spring encircling the bolt biases the clamping shoe outwardly from the clamping holder. A pin member is mounted in the second surface of the clamping holder and engages between the guide cams as protection against turning the clamping shoe about the axis of the clamping bolt.

  • Patent number: 4449085
    Abstract: To control the operation of a machine tool, which has a tool bit cutting a workpiece, the temperature of a measurement spot or area, such as on the cut surface of the workpiece, is checked by an optical element which collects infra-red radiation and focuses it on a thermal sensor. The temperature read by the thermal sensor is registered in an evaluating device which generates a signal when a predetermined temperature condition is reached for discontinuing operation of the machine tool.

  • Patent number: 4375824
    Abstract: A valve assembly for controlling fluid flow, either of a single fluid or for mixing two different fluids such as hot and cold water, operates with a pair of interengaging valve plates having inlet orifices and outlet orifices defined therethrough actuated relative to each other to align the orifices to effect fluid flow. A chamber is defined on one side of one of the plates and a silencer disk is arranged within the chamber with spring means being provided to urge the silencer disk against one of the plates to effect closure of at least the inlet opening of the valve assembly. In operation, inlet fluid pressure operates against the force of the spring means to lift the silencer disk from the one valve plate to enable flow through the valve assembly.

  • Patent number: 4331534
    Abstract: A pulp suspension of waste paper which is laden with air bubbles is introduced into a flotation cell. Fine air bubbles rise through the pulp suspension toward the top. Printing ink and other impurities are deposited on the bubbles which form a foam layer on the surface of the pulp suspension. The foam which is laden with impurities is drawn off from the surface. The fibers which have been subjected to preliminary purification in this manner sink downwardly. For reducing the number of cells connected in series to fewer than a third, while obtaining the same degree of whiteness, the fibers which were subjected to preliminary purification are drawn off and are once again supplied to the flotation cell in the form of an air-laden pulp suspension. Alternatively, instead of the air-laden pulp suspension, a water-air suspension can be injected. The air bubbles which are thus introduced once again rise toward the top and traverse the sinking fibers in a counterflow.
