  • Patent number: 10808953
    Abstract: An extraction system is designed for metal working and other applications. The system may comprise a blower that delivers a positive pressure airflow to a hood that creates an air region for removal of airborne components from a work area. Return air is filtered in a filter region, and debris removed may be separated by a baffle in the filter region to limit re-uptake of the debris by the blower during operation of the system.

  • Patent number: 10806878
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to a pressure support system configured to provide pressure support therapy to a subject, wherein the pressure support system comprises a subject interface heater configured to controllably heat a pressurized flow of breathable gas to a target temperature that is offset from a baseline temperature. The breathable gas baseline temperature target offset ensures the gas delivered to the subject is delivered at a comfortable temperature and/or humidity level that does not cause airway dryness or result in condensed water in the subject interface. In one embodiment, the pressure support system comprises one or more of a pressure generator, a subject interface, a subject interface heater, one or more subject interface temperature sensors, one or more baseline temperature sensors, one or more general sensors, a humidifier, a user interface, a processor, electronic storage, and/or other components.
