  • Publication number: 20190277028
    Abstract: Disclosed is a multiple layer substrate that can be used with a top asphalt applicator that eliminates the need for a bottom asphalt applicator and fines applied to the bottom asphalt layer. A low porosity or impermeable bottom layer prevents the flow of asphalt applied to the porous top layers of the substrate from penetrating the bottom surface. This eliminates the need for fines to prevent sticking of shingles in a shingle stack. In addition, substrate layers that combine fiberglass and polyester fibers in various configurations provide a substrate that can be used in typical shingle manufacturing and manufacturing of waterproofing products that is impact resistant.

  • Publication number: 20190234649
    Abstract: A tubular-shaped and modular air handling unit (AHU) for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems is disclosed. In some embodiments, a modular AHU is disclosed that may include a coil module, a fan module, and an electrical module; each of which may be tubular shaped for easily coupling one to another and easily coupling to tubular-shaped (or round or circular) ductwork. Further, in the tubular-shaped and modular AHU, each module may be independent and stand alone, thereby allowing for relatively easy upgrading, replacement, and/or servicing.

  • Publication number: 20170334752
    Abstract: A process for treating a flue gas desulfurization discharge stream containing dissolved sulfates is presented. Soluble barium compounds, such as barium chloride or barium carbonate are added to the stream in lieu of the traditional two-step lime/carbon dioxide process. The barium compounds cause the sulfate to precipitate as insoluble barium sulfate. The barium sulfate solids settle out of the discharge stream and can be filtered from the process water. The use of soluble barium compounds eliminates the need for subsequent pH adjustment, results in lowering calcium and magnesium concentrations in the discharge stream, and decreases scaling potential in downstream equipment.

  • Publication number: 20150320960
    Abstract: A PAP system is adapted for treatment of respiratory disease or sleep disordered breathing and includes a headgear adapted for engaging a patient's head. The PAP system also includes a patient interface adapted to be secured to and sealed against a portion of the patient's face, in use, by the headgear. The PAP system further includes a flow generator adapted to be connected to the patient interface. The flow generator is adapted to be secured by a portion of the headgear to the patient's head. In addition, the flow generator includes a blower adapted to provide pressurised breathable gas to a patient through the patient interface. The blower is at least partially vibrationally isolated from the patient's head by at least one foam layer mounted within the flow generator to secure the blower. The at least one foam layer is adapted to reduce the amount of transmitted vibration received by the patient.

  • Patent number: 8418580
    Abstract: A cable assembly includes a mount and an anchor. The mount may include a bracket having an edge, a slot formed in the bracket and extending from the edge, and a recess extending at least partially around the slot. The anchor may be an end fitting that includes an adjuster body having a flange, a slide collar movable toward and away from the flange, and a spring member biasing the slide collar toward the flange. The adjuster body may extend through the slot with the flange and the slide collar on opposed sides. The spring member may bias the slide collar into the recess to form an interlock between the end fitting and the bracket that resists removal of the end fitting from the slot.

  • Patent number: 8394322
    Abstract: A tissue processor for processing tissue samples for histological analysis. The processor comprises two retorts, wax baths, reagent containers, a pump and valve. The vale distributes the reagent from one container to either retort. Separate reagent lines connect the wax baths to the retorts. A method of infiltrating a sample containing a reagent such as a dehydrating reagent like an alcohol, where the infiltrating material is heated to a temperature at or above the boiling point of the reagent, to boil off the reagent when the tissue sample is contacted by the infiltrating material.
