  • Publication number: 20190224449
    Abstract: A tubular sheath for enclosing an expandable balloon attached to the distal portion of a catheter encloses and protects the expandable balloon. The tubular sheath is configured to be slidable and removable from the catheter. The tubular sheath may include a longitudinal splitting element that is removable as a result of a force applied to the longitudinal splitting element. The longitudinal splitting element is configured to split the wall of the tubular sheath in response to the force. Alternatively, the tubular sheath may include a gripping portion that has relatively poor cohesive strength to adjacent portions of the tubular sheath. The tubular sheath is configured to be removable in response to a force applied to the gripping portion.

  • Publication number: 20050076454
    Abstract: The present invention provides an industrial extractor (10) comprising a chassis (12) to which a cylindrical drum (14) is rotatably mounted. A pair of sliding doors (24, 26) are incorporated into the drum's (14) cylindrical structure thereby providing access to the drum (14) through its periphery. To load the extractor (10) with laundry, the sliding doors (24, 26) am actuated to provide an opening at the top of the drum (14). The doors (24, 26) are actuated via in interconnected series of levers (36, 38), plates (28, 30) and linkages (48, 50). The laundry is then dropped from a conveyor or chute into the drum (14) without having to tilt or pivot the drum (14). Once loaded, the doors (24, 26) are automatically closed and a locking assembly (60) engages the door (24, 26) to prevent them from inadvertently opening.
