  • Publication number: 20080020066
    Abstract: Pain can be relieved by passing a bar of elemental sulfur over a painful area. The bar can be of any size or dimension and can be rolled or rubbed across the painful area. The bar can be comprised completely of elemental sulfur, be coated with elemental sulfur, or have an inner layer of elemental sulfur.

  • Patent number: 6966954
    Abstract: A roller bearing that provides ball and roller bearing elements comprised of M50 steel and M50NiL steel having surface hardnesses above 60 HRC, and in the range of 65-72 HRC. The hardness in the surface region is achieved by nitriding the surface to achieve a high hardness and extended life. This improvement is brought about by controlling the microstructure of the alloy by minimizing the formation of retained austenite. The material is tempered as required. The surface is then nitrided, but the nitriding operation is carefully controlled to avoid the formation of intergranular nitrides. Because of the method used to prevent the formation of intergranular nitrides, some carbon may be present to prevent the surface of the steel from becoming depleted of carbon. The hardening element in this nitro-carburizing operation is nitrogen, which forms iron nitride as Fe3N or Fe4N intragranularly.

  • Publication number: 20050110496
    Abstract: Magnetometry and pulsed electromagnetic radiation (EM) may be employed during a same survey pass by synchronously interleaving the collection of magnetometer data with pulses from EM sensors. For example, one or more magnetometers may be sampled between pulses of one or more EM coils such that the data from the one or more magnetometers is substantially free of artifacts from the pulsed EM radiation. A detection system may include a vehicle capable of locomotion over a surface of earth, a mount coupled to the vehicle, the mount including at least one magnetometer, at least one EM sensor adapted to produce pulses of EM radiation, and a controller adapted to interleave collection of data from the at least one magnetometer between the pulses of EM radiation.

  • Patent number: 5469176
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for resolving a radar return by an object or layer below the earth's surface from a radar return of an air-to-earth interface. More specifically, a method and apparatus for generating short pulsewidth, broad bandwidth RF signals and for effecting control and timing of transmitted and received radar signals in order to focus an antenna illumination pattern. The apparatus includes an antenna array including a plurality of antenna elements which transmit and receive the RF pulsed signals and a custom control module which generates the control signals fed to the antenna array to delay the RF pulse signals with respect to each other, upon transmission and receipt, in order to form transmit and receive antenna illumination patterns.

  • Patent number: 4515046
    Abstract: Method and apparatus are disclosed for advancing and retracting a torque applying tool to and from an operative position. The disclosed apparatus, which includes a push button retracting mechanism, includes structure for transmission of bidirectional torque between its housing and the tool. Screwdrivers and other torque applying tools may thus be driven by rotation of the apparatus housing.

  • Patent number: 4218642
    Abstract: A stepping motor rate control employs a predetermined energization of one quantity to step the motor and a lower, predetermined quantity of current energization to hold the motor in position as by using a current pulse to hold the motor. The frequency of energization of the motor is constant; the speed of the motor being determined by the ratio of stepping pulses to holding pulses.The stepping motor rate control is driven from a clock. A duty cycle divider reduces the clock frequency down to the energizing frequency of the stepping motor. An energizing pulse is applied to the motor during each cycle. A divide-by-N-divider, coupled to the duty cycle divider, is used to determine the ratio of stepping energization pulses to holding energization pulses to be provided to the motor and hence the speed of the motor.
