  • Publication number: 20060000644
    Abstract: A method of steering a fluid drilling head in an underground borehole drilling situation is provided by rotating the flexible hose through which high pressure is provided to the drilling head and providing a biasing force on the drilling head. The hose can be rotated from a remote surface mounted situation by rotating the entire surface rig (13) in a horizontal plane about a turntable (24) causing the vertically orientated portion of the hose (11) to rotate about its longitudinal axis. The biasing force can be provided in a number of different ways but typically results from the use of an asymmetrical gauging ring on the fluid drilling head.

  • Publication number: 20050230502
    Abstract: Spray devices for distributing a fluid include nozzles that are configured so that the fluid as it is discharged from the nozzles is disseminated into a spray pattern in the form of a sheet of fluid. In a particular aspect, the spray pattern is in the form of a three-dimensional sheet of the fluid. The spray devices that incorporate the nozzles can comprise rotatable spray arms for automatic dishwashers, including spray arms located above the upper racks of the dishwashers.

  • Publication number: 20050073817
    Abstract: A circuit board assembly includes a circuit board, an electronic component and a structure coupling the electronic component to the circuit board. The structure retains the electronic component relative to the circuit board at a selected one of a plurality of positions in both directions along an axis perpendicular to the circuit board. The structure is movably coupled to one of the electronic component and the circuit board in a direction perpendicular to the axis at least prior to being coupled to the other of the electronic component and the circuit board.

  • Publication number: 20050073813
    Abstract: A circuit board assembly includes a circuit board, an electronic component, a plurality of incremental detents and at least one projection. The plurality of incremental detents are coupled to one of the circuit board and the electronic component and are retained relative to said one of the circuit board and the electronic component against linear movement in both directions along a first axis. The at least one projection is coupled to the other of the circuit board and the electronic component and is retained against linear movement along the first axis. The at least one projection is received within at least one of the plurality of detents to retain the electronic component relative to the circuit board against linear movement in both directions along the axis.

  • Publication number: 20050057907
    Abstract: A circuit board assembly includes an electronic component, a circuit board, a first connector portion coupled to one of the electronic component and the circuit board, a second connector portion coupled to the other of the electronic component and the circuit board, a first alignment member coupled to the first connector portion and a second alignment member coupled to the second connector portion. The second alignment member is configured to interact with the first alignment member to align the first connector portion with the second connector portion in at least one direction prior to engagement of the first connector portion and the second connector portion. The second alignment member extends relative to the second connector portion by a first extent prior to engagement of the first connector portion and the second connector portion.

  • Publication number: 20050048812
    Abstract: An apparatus for adjoining along a mating axis a first and second circuit board to directly mate a first integrated connector of the first board with a second integrated connector of the second board is disclosed. The apparatus comprises an attachment plate to be supported in a substantially horizontal plane; a plurality of extension arms extending downward from the plate to suspendingly restrain the first board away from the plate except to permit the first board to translate along the mating axis toward the plate; an pressure platform extending downward from the plate to apply to the first board a mating-axis force collocated with the first connector; and a plurality of attachment elements to secure the plate to the second circuit board without applying forces to the first circuit board. Forces applied to the plate are transferred to the first board through only the pressure platform.

  • Publication number: 20050034901
    Abstract: A fluid drilling head has a plurality of nozzles (3, 4, 5, 6) in a rotatable nozzle assembly (2) to provide high pressure cutting jets (7). The head is provided with a gauging ring (10) having an annular clearance (11) to the rotatable nozzle assembly (2) to provide for the passage of rock particles eroded by the cutting action of the jets (7) while regulating the progress of the drilling head in the borehole and controlling drill stalling. A stepped rotatable nozzle assembly having a smaller diameter portion (8) and a larger diameter portion (9) to extend the cutting zone of a reaming jet closer to the outer diameter of the gauging ring(10) is also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 6110683
    Abstract: The present invention provides a reagent which can be used as a marker to identify individual lanes on an electrophoresis gel which is run on an Automated DNA Sequencer. This reagent is may be included in the loading dye for samples in DNA sequencing, DNA fragment analysis, or linkage mapping analysis. Inclusion of the reagent aids in the identification of the lane in which each sample is individually loaded on the acrylamide gel, such that the data read from each lane by the instrument is correctly applied to the appropriate sample.
