  • Patent number: 6735929
    Abstract: A mechanism for attaching a harvesting assembly to a combine having a multicoupler which connects hydraulic lines on the combine with hydraulic lines on the harvesting assembly as two halves of the multicoupler are brought together, and a latching mechanism which mechanically couples the harvesting assembly to the combine, the latching mechanism being operatively connected with the multicoupler to shift between latched and unlatched modes as the multicoupler is shifted between connected and unconnected modes.

  • Patent number: 6651411
    Abstract: A harvesting reel is rotatably mounted on left and right saddles. The saddles are slidably positioned on fore/aft extending arms. A fore/aft position sensor is located between one of the fore/aft extending arms and the respective saddle. The fore/aft extending arm is provided with a slot that extends along the arm at an angle thereto. A sensing finger engages the slot and is coupled to a potentiometer by a sensing arm. As the fore/aft position of the reel changes, the relative position of the sensing finger changes creating a changing electrical output from the potentiometer. The resulting potentiometer voltage represents a fore/aft position signal that is directed to a controller.

  • Patent number: 6530197
    Abstract: A ground contact height sensor for a harvesting header comprises a transverse rotatable shaft, a first rigid arm, a second rigid arm and a connecting member. The rotatable shaft is rotatively mounted to the frame of the header. The first rigid arm is rigidly mounted to the rotatable shaft. The first arm extends downwardly and rearwardly from the rotatable shaft in a curved manner. The second rigid arm is pivotally coupled to the first rigid arm by a hinge joint. The second rigid arm extends upwardly and rearwardly from the second end of the first rigid arm. The first and second rigid arms defining a relatively large radius. The connecting member secures the rearmost end of the second rigid arm to the frame of the header. To maintain the radius of the two pivotally connected rigid arms the hinge joint joining the two rigid arms is provided with a torsion spring.

  • Patent number: 6338771
    Abstract: In a process and an apparatus for detaching a lining of thin composite material from a central region, the detachment operation is effected in a continuous procedure with the composite material in the form of an endless web. The composite material passes as a treatment region successively through an initial dissolution region and a deactivation region, in each of which inter alia moisture is fed to the composite material. The residence times in those regions are controllable independently of each other and at least at the end of those regions a respective operation for the preliminary removal of moisture from the composite material is effected. After the last region the composite material is subjected to a drying operation and the lining is detached from the central material by their being moved away from each other.

  • Patent number: 6167686
    Abstract: A chain or belt tensioner is provided in a header for a harvester having a pair of rollers, each supported on separate pivot arms and engagable with the slack and taut strands of the chain or belt. The pivot arms are mounted about a common pivot and are spring biased into engagement with the chain or belt by a common spring. When the drive direction is reversed, the normally slack side of the chain becomes taut and assumes a straight-line position between the sprockets or sheaves. The pivot arms will rotate about the pivot and the pivot arm on the strand that has now become slack will rotate to tension the slack strand. The biasing spring coupled to the two pivot arms biases the rollers against the two strands of the chain and provides a fixed tensioning force on the chain that does not require adjustment.

  • Patent number: 5369981
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the continuous determination of the dust content of flowing media with the isokinetic flow sampling with the separation of the dust or aerosols by cake filtration on a filter and the measurement of the pressure drop at the filter to determine its degree of clogging. To this end the time cycle of the quantity of dust separated on the filter is determined by the measurement of the pressure loss at the filter of an isokinetically operating sampling system. To find the dust load, this quantity of dust is related to the partial quantity of gas extracted isokinetically during the period concerned.

  • Patent number: 4932933
    Abstract: In a centrifuge device whose purpose is in particular the separation of amalgam from waste water generated in dentist' offices, the following is provided in order to improve the determination of the filling level in a collecting tank downstream from a centrifuge, to obtain better utilization of the container volume, to reduce the residual moisture in the separated solids, and to simultaneously eliminate the repumping means which operate between the collecting tank and the centrifugal. The collecting tank is detachably attached to a centrifuge drum and rotates together with the centrifuge, with measures being taken for separating the clean-water space from the centrifuge drum, there is also provided a transport container which can be detached from the device together with a collecting tank, which container can, when the collecting tank is in it, be closed by means of a cover which, when it is not in use, is detachably attached to the transport container.
