  • Publication number: 20170349051
    Abstract: A system for recharging power storage devices on a watercraft is disclosed herein. The system for recharging power storage devices on a watercraft includes a shell, at least one linear-channel fixedly mounted inside the shell, a turbine having at least one rotor and at least one shaft connected to the rotor, and a generator. The system for recharging power storage devices on a watercraft is useful for converting the rotational energy provided by the water flowing past the turbine rotor into electrical energy to charge a power storage device on a watercraft.

  • Publication number: 20100215519
    Abstract: An air operated double diaphragm pump comprising an air valve mechanism. The air valve mechanism may comprise a single valve system that replaces the two valve system found in conventional air operated double diaphragm pumps. The position of the valve may be determined by the diaphragm motion of the pump up to a stall position. A spring-loaded mechanical actuation may complete the valve action from the stall position to the final or end of stroke position of the pump.

  • Patent number: 7379874
    Abstract: The present invention provides an application-independent and engine-independent middleware layer (204) between applications (202) and engines (206, 208). The middleware provides speech-related services to both applications (202) and engines (206, 208), thereby making it far easier for application vendors and engine vendors to bring their technology to consumers.

  • Publication number: 20060259004
    Abstract: A method and system for handling hazardous materials contained in a vial includes an isolation enclosure having an opening selectively sealable about the vial, a bag body portion, and a cap portion. A latching extraction element is attached to the cap portion and has a preceding engaging member to secure the vial to the isolation enclosure, an extraction member to be inserted into the vial and remove material therefrom, and a primary engaging member to secure the vial to the extraction member. A valve is mounted outside the isolation enclosure and controls the flow of fluid from the vial. An adaptor having a reseal member permits flow when coupled to the valve and restricts flow when uncoupled from the valve. Once uncoupled, the adaptor is removably associated with a second valve located remotely from the isolation enclosure, allowing fluid to pass into the second valve.

  • Publication number: 20050262137
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and computer-readable medium for searching for programming objects on a computer system. Under one aspect of the invention, optional search attributes are used to order a list of references to found programming objects. Under a second aspect of the invention, object attributes that are stored outside of a static attribute storage area are inspected during the search for programming objects. Under a third aspect of the invention, different sets of object data are allowed to reference the same programming object class, and different objects of a single programming object class may be initialized in different ways so that they exhibit different attributes.
