  • Patent number: 5003520
    Abstract: A time accounting system for accounting parking subject to charge periods which includes a card having an electronic memory in which each memory location can be individually and irreversibly written in order to represent a time unit credit allocated to the holder of the card. The system also includes a portable case in which the card can be inserted and which has an internal clock circuit and a coupling circuit, as well as a writing circuit. The case is designed with means for temporary storage of a time unit credit which is activable if the time credit remaining in the inserted card is less than the parking time of the holder.

  • Patent number: 4582740
    Abstract: A machine for producing pile fabric comprises a sonotrode (1) , a matrix (4) of tubes (5) bringing threads (10) onto a support sheet (7) for the purpose of welding rows of loops to the surface of this sheet. The matrix (4) is guided between slides (6) which are parallel to the longitudinal axes of the tubes (5) and perpendicularly to the surface of application of the sonotrode (1) vibrations. A driving mechanism (13, 14, 15) periodically brings the extremities of the tubes (5) from which the threads leave against the sonotrode (1) by pressing the base of a row of loops and the support sheet (7) against the sonotrode in order to cause them to be welded together.

  • Patent number: 4404105
    Abstract: Process for the irreversible treatment of toxic waste by means of a silicate, in the presence of water, in such a way as to form a solid aggregate includes treatment of the silicate in an acid medium, for the purpose of obtaining silicic acid of low molecular weight; mixing the silicic acid with the waste to be treated, in the presence of water and controlling the pH between 0 and 4 in a sufficiently acid medium to cause the waste to undergo at least partial solution; precipitation of a gel of high molecular weight from the resultant aqueous mixture; addition thereto of a mixture which reacts with the gel of high molecular weight to form a silicate, possibly in the presence of a cementation agent, in such a way as to produce a sludge, and the hardening of the sludge into a solid aggregate which can not be changed physically so as to release again the harmful or toxic waste into the environment.
