  • Patent number: 11460016
    Abstract: A pumping system includes a pump array of multiple pump-engine assemblies. Each pump-engine assembly comprises a pump and a gas turbine engine driving the pump. A manifold is coupled to the pumps. A master controller is coupled to each of the pump-engine assemblies either directly or via one or more intermediate controllers. The master controller and any intermediate controllers are collectively programmed to respond to user input including a desired hydraulic output at the manifold by automatically calculating and applying inputs to the individual pump-engine assemblies to provide the desired hydraulic output.

  • Patent number: 11433828
    Abstract: A hinge cover member (20) for use with a swan neck type hinge (12) has an elongate channel shaped portion (24) for receiving the hinge arm (14) and a housing portion (13) for location about a mounting structure (18) which attaches the hinge arm to the closure. The housing portion defines at least one formation (70) for attaching an edge (72) of a trim panel (56) mounted to the closure to the housing portion. The formation (70) may be a clip which clamps the edge (72) of the trim panel. The trim panel (56 may have a live hinge (74) adjacent the edge about which the panel can flex. During adjustment of the closure (13) relative to the hinge, the edge region (72) of the trim panel is constrained to move with the hinge cover.

  • Patent number: 10973261
    Abstract: It is the object of the present invention to eliminate the disadvantages of the traditional dabbing method by providing a device and associated method that will reliably allow users to divide and collect a desired small quantity of Extract from a larger or bulk quantity of Extract and to conduct the small quantity of extract toward a Vaporizer heating element with minimal loss or wastage of Extract during the process, while significantly reducing required precision and effort associated Extract handling. The present invention of device and associated method result in a simpler, cleaner, and more efficient dabbing process.

  • Patent number: 10940275
    Abstract: It is an objective of the present invention to reduce the disadvantages in currently available Vaporizers by providing a method and system of controlling the output voltage of the Battery such that the electrical current within and the temperature of the heating element and Extract are controllable. The present invention discloses the Battery that operates by supplying voltage that varies with time and provides various automatically or manually selectable voltage-time profiles. The voltage is controlled by an integrated controller that is able to vary the battery output voltage via voltage modulation and is able to continuously vary the output voltage. The voltage is modulated using pulse width modulation. The integrated controller is capable of storing and executing an embedded program for voltage modulation.

  • Publication number: 20200281272
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for vaporizing concentrate that will substantially eliminate general or localized burning of concentrate during the vaporization process and a vaporizer device adapted for carrying out the vaporization method. The vaporization method is based on heating concentrate that has been absorbed into a frit, preferably fritted glass. Fritted glass is characterized by open-pore interstices that allow free passage of fluid through the frit. It is commonly used as a filtering element, particularly in high-temperature applications. It is discovered that concentrate placed in contact with fritted glass is absorbed through capillary action. The concentrate at room temperature may not readily seep fully into fritted glass, as concentrate is heated its viscosity is reduced such that it is readily absorbed by the fritted glass and upon further heating the fritted glass and absorbed concentrate, the vapor of the concentrate is generated for inhalation.

  • Patent number: 10701977
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for vaporizing concentrate that will substantially eliminate general or localized burning of concentrate during the vaporization process and a device adapted for carrying out said method. The vaporization method is based on heating concentrate that has been absorbed into a frit, preferably fitted glass. Fritted glass is characterized by open-pore interstices that allow free passage of fluid through the frit. It is commonly used as a filtering element, particularly in high-temperature applications. It was discovered that concentrate placed in contact with fitted glass is absorbed through capillary action. Although room temperature concentrate may not readily seep fully into fritted glass, as concentrate is heated its viscosity is reduced such that it is readily absorbed by the fitted glass.
