  • Publication number: 20210129037
    Abstract: A balloon inflator for simultaneously filling two balloons to substantially identical sizes includes an air pump having a first air chamber communicating with a first inflation nozzle and second air chamber communicating with a second inflation nozzle. A reciprocating piston causes an alternating increase and decrease in the first and second air chambers to advance air to fill balloons on the first and second inflation nozzles. The volume of inflation gas advanced to the first balloon inflation nozzle is substantially identical to the volume of inflation gas advanced to the second balloon inflation nozzle, thus permitting a virtually identical inflation of a first balloon at said first balloon inflation nozzle and a second balloon at said second balloon inflation nozzle upon repeated reciprocation of the piston.

  • Patent number: 9174140
    Abstract: A balloon inflator includes a tank containing a volume of pressurized gas and a regulator assembly removably secured to the tank for reducing the pressure of gas exiting the tank, the regulator assembly including a pressure regulator. A nozzle assembly is also provided and includes a valve for controlling dispensing of the pressurized gas. A flexible hose extends between the regulator assembly and the nozzle assembly, the hose being in fluid communication with the pressure regulator and the valve. The balloon inflator is small and lightweight, and therefore portable and concealable. The flexible nature of the hose allows for easy manipulation of the nozzle assembly, making use of the balloon inflator easier for performers.

  • Publication number: 20150283473
    Abstract: A balloon inflation device is provided for inflating a balloon having a neck. The balloon inflation device includes: a source of pressurized gas; an inflation nozzle selectively receiving the neck of the balloon to communicate with the interior thereof, the inflation nozzle including: a fill nozzle having an outlet end, and a pressure sensor nozzle inside of the fill nozzle, the pressure sensor nozzle having an inlet end. The outlet end and the inlet end communicate with the interior of the balloon when the inflation nozzle receives the neck of the balloon. A gas feed line communicates between the source of pressurized gas and the fill nozzle of the inflation nozzle, and a pressure sensor communicates with the pressure sensor nozzle such that the pressure sensor is affected by the pressure of the gas within the balloon as received at the inlet end of the strain gauge nozzle.

  • Patent number: 8906482
    Abstract: An adjustable weight for tethering lighter-than-air balloons that may include a plurality of individual weights secured together by a friction fit. The weights each have a top wall and a side wall extending from a periphery of the top wall. The side wall includes a top tier adjacent to the top wall and a base tier extending from the top tier. The base tier is larger in size than the top tier to facilitate nesting of adjacent weights, and a step is formed at the intersection of the top tier and the base tier. An attachment member extends from the weight and provides a tethering point for lighter-than-air balloons.

  • Patent number: 8902055
    Abstract: A rollover warning system for a vehicle includes: a base control inertial measurement unit with a plurality of sensors and a computer. The plurality of sensors measures a plurality of vehicle measurements. The plurality of vehicle measurements include at least two of: a longitudinal acceleration measurement; a lateral acceleration measurement; a vertical acceleration measurement; a roll rate measurement; a yaw rate measurement; and combinations thereof. Optionally, a pitch rate gyro for pitch measurement can be added for additional functionality, such as a vertical slope warning, or it can also be input into the predictive algorithm for defining additional vehicle hazardous operation states and conditions. The computer calculates a Rollover Risk Estimate based on the plurality of vehicle measurements taken by the plurality of sensors in the inertial measurement unit.
