  • Publication number: 20170025989
    Abstract: A pole mounted dual axis solar tracking apparatus has a main mounting member [13] in a fixed primary north-south axis which is inclined to accommodate geographical latitude and a cross arm [16] fixed to the main mounting member and defining a secondary east-west axis. A support frame [15] for PV panels, solar reflectors etc. is pivoted to the cross arm to enable the support frame to tilt over the secondary east-west axis. The apparatus is highly efficient due to its ability to sweep through the shape of two conjoined cones. The apparatus operates with close to the efficiency of a dual axis tracker but with the simplicity of a single axis tracker.

  • Publication number: 20130319402
    Abstract: A solar tracking apparatus comprises an array frame assembly adapted to support at least one solar collecting product, rotation means to enable the array frame assembly to rotate to at least track the sun from east to west over a fixed primary axis of rotation, and adjustment means to enable the array frame assembly to be adjusted relative to the primary axis of rotation to allow for seasonal changes in the sun's elevation and changes in the sun's declination throughout each day.

  • Patent number: 7037887
    Abstract: Clear, or translucent fabric softener compositions comprise fabric softener compound, principal solvent system, and high electrolyte levels. The high electrolyte level allows for a broader range of principal solvents to be used and/or reduces the incidence of increased viscosity when low levels of principal solvent are used. Phase stabilizers which are primarily ethoxylated hydrophobic materials can be used to reduce the amount of principal solvent that is needed and/or to stabilize the compositions in the presence of the highest levels of electrolyte. Specific phase stabilizers provide additional benefits including improved softening. Specific electrolytes provide improved results. Addition of primary solvents and/or phase stabilizers to the softener compounds can improve the viscosity/handling of the compounds and the ability to create the finished compositions.
