  • Patent number: 11168695
    Abstract: A centrifugal pump for delivering a medium comprising solid admixtures includes a blade-free space arranged in front of an impeller. The centrifugal pump has a suction-side arrangement that permits variable sizing of the blade-free space. The suction-side arrangement permits the efficiency of the centrifugal pump to be increased while avoiding blockages.

  • Publication number: 20060071035
    Abstract: The invention relates to a spray can which is made of metal and which is ergonomically designed in order to ensure a secure hold of the can when spraying. This spray can comprises a lower can portion and an upper can portion, the lower can portion containing a bottom and being of almost cylindrical configuration, so that a cross section of the spray can in this portion is circular. The upper can portion contains a shoulder area and a can opening with a collar for an insertable spraying system from which the contents of the can are discharged. In order to obtain an easy-to-handle spray can which is ergonomically shaped and presents no drawbacks with regard to safety, it is proposed that the upper can portion additionally contains a shaping area, which may also extend above the shoulder area. A cross section in the shaping area of the spray can is configured differently than the almost circular cross section of the lower can portion.
