  • Patent number: 10589927
    Abstract: A waste disposal device for sealing waste and a cassette for dispensing film are disclosed. The waste disposal device comprises first and second rollers, each comprising first and second end portions and a joining portion therebetween. The end portions of the first and second rollers are arranged to receive and seal first and second film portions therebetween as the first and second rollers rotate. The joining portions of the first and second rollers are arranged to define an aperture for receiving waste in a first rotary configuration of the rollers and to seal the first and second film portions therebetween in a second rotary configuration of the first and second rollers. The cassette comprises first and second portions comprising respective first and second film dispensers. The first portion is mechanically connected to the second portion. The cassette is moveable between a first, compact configuration and a second, extended configuration.

  • Patent number: 10253925
    Abstract: A mounting device for mounting plumbing or electrical equipment to a surface is disclosed. The device has a substantially planar body, comprising an engagement arrangement, for engagement with the equipment to be mounted to the mounting device; an opening for allowing passage of an electrical wire and/or a pipe through the plane of the body; alignment means arranged to allow a user to identify a correct location of the opening relative to pipework or cabling fixed to, or protruding from, the surface; and a substantially visually transparent fixing region configured to allow a user to identify a fixing point on the surface while looking through the fixing region, and to locate fixing means in the surface at the fixing point, through the fixing region, to fix the mounting device to the surface.

  • Patent number: 10071836
    Abstract: The dose dispense closure for a squeezable container. The closure has a body cap 20 with inlet orifices 37 and a transit orifice 34 which allows composition into the body cap. A piston 80 is provided within the body cap 20. When the container is squeezed, the piston 80 is forced down, thereby expelling liquid from a control cap 40 until the piston 80 lands on the end of a duct 60 in the control cap 40 to prevent further dispensing. When the squeezing force is removed, the piston 80 returns to its start position. The piston 80 is biased towards the end wall 33 of the body cap 20 by a compression element 87. The body cap 20 is attached directly to the container such that rotation of the body cap allows adjustment of the dosage without having to remove the body cap.

  • Publication number: 20180078798
    Abstract: A user-wearable device incorporates a respirator or breathing air filter in combination with an electronic system providing functionality to a wearing user. The functionality can include, for example, physiological data sensing, environmental data sensing, user input, user output, and communication network connectivity. The electronic system can be configured to communicate with an application executing on a user host device, such as a mobile phone, tablet or personal computer for transferring information gathered by the user-wearable device. The application executing on the user host device can be used to configure the user-wearable device. User host devices of multiple users can be configured to report gathered data to a data management system, which can aggregate and store data and perform analysis on the aggregated data. Various control arrangements may be used.

  • Patent number: 8720002
    Abstract: A handle assembly for a cleaning appliance such as a vacuum cleaner includes a flexible hose having a first end that is connectable to a main body of the cleaning appliance and a second end, a handle portion for maneuvering the handle assembly during use and a tubular wand. The second end of the flexible hose is connected to the handle portion, and the tubular wand is slidably mounted in the handle portion so as to be movable between a first position in which the tubular wand extends beyond the handle portion inside the flexible hose and a second position in which the tubular wand extends beyond the handle portion away from the flexible hose.

  • Patent number: 7731770
    Abstract: A separating apparatus includes a shroud that has a wall having a multiplicity of through-holes. At least one baffle is provided on the inner surface of the wall of the shroud. The baffle directs the airflow entering the shroud towards the central region of the shroud, thereby reducing conflicting air currents. The baffle may also be used to assist correct assembly of the separating apparatus. The baffle may be arranged to locate with a member provided on another component of the separating apparatus, such as a cyclone assembly, in order to locate that assembly in a predetermined orientation.

  • Publication number: 20090313958
    Abstract: A cyclonic separating apparatus for separating particles from a dirt-laden airflow includes a cyclone for separating and collecting dirt and dust from the dirt-laden airflow. The cyclone has an air inlet, an air outlet, a longitudinal axis and a wall. The wall includes a first portion and a second portion spaced farther from the longitudinal axis than the first portion, the first and second portions being spaced along the longitudinal axis. The cyclone also includes at least one lip extending from the first portion of the wall into a portion of the cyclone surrounded by the second portion of the wall. By providing a cyclone with a wall having two portions of different sizes and a lip extending from the portion with the smaller size into the portion with the larger size, the risk of blockages due to re-entrainment and movement of dirt and dust within the cyclonic separating apparatus is reduced.

  • Patent number: 7618470
    Abstract: A separating apparatus includes a separating chamber in which cyclonic separation is able to take place, an inlet to the separating chamber and a shroud that includes a wall having a multiplicity of through-holes forming an outlet from the separating chamber and also includes a lip extending from the wall into the separating chamber, the lip having has a plurality of apertures therethrough. The provision of apertures in the depending lip allows the airflow to be drawn through the apertures while it is still in the separating chamber. This has the effect of capturing some of the dirt and dust which remains entrained within the airflow so that it collects on the upstream side of the lip. Thus the shroud through-holes are presented with less entrained dirt and dust and the risk of the through-holes becoming blocked is reduced.

  • Patent number: 7530175
    Abstract: A twin level assembly including two levels, wherein one of the two levels also contains an indicating device for performing a separate function, is disclosed. The twin level assembly comprises a first level and a second level that is selectively receivable into the first level through an opening in an end cap and into a receptacle of the first level. The second level is held in the first level by a retention mechanism. The first level and the second level each have at least one bubble vial for visually displaying level indications, while the indicating device in the second level is a type of stud sensor, laser pointer, metal detector, wire detector, or a sonic measurement device.
