  • Patent number: 5390639
    Abstract: A method of calculating fuel injection quantities, as determined by the initiation and duration of fuel injection, in an internal combustion engine in response to repetitive engine operating parameters measured during engine operation. The quantity of fuel injected into a cylinder of a multicylinder engine may be determined through measurement of an operating characteristic of that cylinder immediately prior to injection. The timing of injection may also be responsive to the measurement of the engine operating characteristic which may not be uniformly repetitive.

  • Patent number: 5326320
    Abstract: In a method and an apparatus for forage processing, in order to accelerate its drying process, mown stalk material is fed to rotating pressing elements (7, 7a, 7b), which consolidate the stalk material into a mat of stalk material. In order to produce an inherently stable mat of stalk material, the thickness and density of said mat are to be held constant, independent of the quantity of stalk material supplied by a mowing or collecting means (1), and the forage constituents within the mat are to be better mixed. To this end, the volume of stalk material fed to the pressing means (7) and a conveying speed of the pressing elements (7a and 7b) are continuously transmitted to a control means (20) as measured values, and on the basis of these parameters the conveying speed is reduced by means of the control means (20) in the case of a small quantity of stalk material accumulating (FIG. 1).

  • Patent number: 5300910
    Abstract: In a known magnet system, specifically for magnetic separators, having homogeneously magnetized magnet blocks arranged in circular ring shape, the magnet blocks have their magnetization directions aligned differently from one to another and established in accordance with a predetermined mathematical formula. While a magnetic field running almost uniformly over the whole region of the magnet system is thus produced, the magnet blocks are made trapezoidal in cross section and, because of the many distinct magnetization directions, require separate fabrication. Both the fabrication and the assembly of these magnet blocks are therefore relatively complicated and time-consuming. In accordance with the invention, however, the fabrication and the assembly of the magnet blocks into a magnet system are quite substantially simplified and improved by virtue of the fact that the magnet blocks (1) are made square in cross section.

  • Patent number: 5234051
    Abstract: This invention relates to a compact heat exchanger-ventilation unit, for vehicles driven by internal-combustion engines which is compact and permits use of a narrow, low hood. The cooling air fan 1 has a diffuser and the resistance of the heat exchangers on the cooling air side is adapted to the delivery level of the cooling air fan 1.

  • Patent number: 4919396
    Abstract: An apparatus for smelting meltable substances, particularly ore concentrates. A transfer element joins the cyclone discharge to the furnace and is arranged between the melting cyclone and the furnace. In this way, the fitting, particularly the re-fitting of an open-hearth furnace with a melting cyclone can be significantly simplified; or, on the other hand, the melting cyclone can be very easily dismantled for the purpose of repair or can be replaced by another melting cyclone in a relatively short time, namely without a significant interruption of furnace operations.

  • Patent number: 4840315
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for grinding brittle stock such as cement clinker to form finished cement, passing the grinding stock through a first roller press having pressure and nip capabilities to do product bed comminution which is unique in self particle destruction causing incipient cracks in the inside of the product particles which are delivered from the press in agglomerations or scabs, the agglomerated scabs are delivered to a second roller press of larger capacity, which also does product bed comminution, de-agglomerating the scabs after the second roller press, classifying the de-agglomerated product and recirculating the coarse fraction back to the second roller press and possibly also to the intake of the first roller press.

  • Patent number: 4826608
    Abstract: In known worm centrifuges comprising a solid bowl and a sieve bowl, a cleaning and predewatering of the solids/liquid mixture occurs in the solid bowl when dewatering solids/liquid mixtures and an after-dewatering of the solids occurs in the following sieve bowl. In general, a relatively good cleaning and dewatering effect is achieved with such previously-known worm centrifuges comprising a solid bowl. According to the invention, the after-dewatering effect in the sieve bowl can be quite substantially increased in that the conveyor worm is provided with agitator elements in the region of the sieve bowl, the agitator elements immersing into the solids layer. As a result thereof, in particularly, a circulation of the solids layer is achieved in the sieve bowl in a very advantageous manner and, as a result thereof, the after-dewatering of the solids before discharge from the worm centrifuge is very substantially improved.

  • Patent number: 4757973
    Abstract: A control valve for a fuel injector, especially of an air-compressing, spontaneous-ignition, internal combustion engine. The control valve includes a valve body in the form of a piston valve which is axially movable in a housing chamber into a closure position and an open position, with the closure position being determined by a valve seat on the housing, and a seating surface edge on the piston valve. The housing chamber includes at least one high pressure connection, and a low pressure connection. The basic problem with a control valve of this general type is that when the piston valve strikes the valve seat, rebound movements are carried out by the piston valve, so that the closure position can only be reliably assumed after a certain time delay, thus negatively influencing the injection process.

  • Patent number: 4755302
    Abstract: A method and mechanism for the magnetic separation of material from a fluid containing magnetic and non-magnetic material, passing the fluid through matrix containing canisters wherein the canisters are carried on a turret which moves axially and rotatably. In four quadrilaterally arranged locations, two canisters are supported in a separation position within coils until they are filled and then are moved axially and rotationally to cleansing stations while cleansed canisters are rotated and moved axially up into the separation stations. A distribution head connects to the turret for delivery of magnetic material containing fluid and cleansing fluid.

  • Patent number: 4753660
    Abstract: The invention relates to an apparatus and method for producing a free flowing coal suspension high in solids content. The coal is ground in at least two stages utilizing a mill having a calibrating effect in one stage and a mill without calibrating effect in another stage and adding a sub-quantity of viscosity reducing additive to the coal before each grinding. A drying of the coal or reconcentration of the suspension is not required. A roller mill operating on the principle of materials bed comminution is preferred as the non-calibrating mill in the first grinding stage and a rotating drum mill or a vibration grinding mill with rods as grinding bodies is preferred as the calibrating mill.
