  • Patent number: 10357798
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a device for preventing the fouling of a liquid dispensing nozzle. The end of the dispensing nozzle is placed in a hollow interior of a band carrying the same solvent that is dispensed by the nozzle. The solvent on the band evaporates into a gap between the band and the dispensing nozzle, thus providing a vapor sheath, or environment in the gap, that helps to prevent the fouling of the dispensing nozzle.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 9459051
    Abstract: A motorcycle has a heat exchanger adapted to be installed on the motorcycle in a substantially horizontal orientation. Also, the heat exchanger is adapted to be installed on the motorcycle beneath the engine, crankcase, oil pan and/or gearbox without substantial vertical orientation and not attached directly to the engine, except by cooling fluid connectors. Preferably, the heat exchanger is made with finned tubular core elements. The heat exchanger is installed in a suspended manner beneath the motorcycle, so that cooling air may pass over its top and bottom surfaces. Preferably, the heat exchanger is an oil intercooler.

  • Publication number: 20120325427
    Abstract: A motorcycle has a heat exchanger adapted to be installed on the motorcycle in a substantially horizontal orientation. Also, the heat exchanger is adapted to be installed on the motorcycle beneath the engine, crankcase, oil pan and/or gearbox without substantial vertical orientation and not attached to the engine. Preferably, the heat exchanger is made with finned tubular core elements. At the location under the motorcycle, the thinness of the heat exchanger is important, so preferably it is made with thin hollow plates. The heat exchanger is installed in a suspended manner beneath the motorcycle, so that cooling air may pass effectively over its top and bottom surfaces. Preferably, the heat exchanger is an oil intercooler.
