  • Patent number: 11780657
    Abstract: A bottle assembly has a bottle and a removable cap. The cap includes a nozzle and a vent arrangement. The vent arrangement can include a vent conduit that extends into an air cavity present at the bottom of the bottle assembly when the bottle assembly is inverted. The vent arrangement allows for pressure equalization within the bottom assembly in response to liquid being dispensed from the bottle assembly to permit high flow rates of the dispensed liquid without squeezing of the bottle.

  • Publication number: 20220399179
    Abstract: Described are various embodiments of an ion beam chamber fluid delivery system and method for delivering a fluid onto a substrate in an ion beam system during operation. In one embodiment, the system comprises: a chamber comprising an ion beam gun oriented so as to cause ions to impinge the substrate, said chamber having a fluid delivery conduit therein for delivering the fluid into the chamber; a transferable substrate stage for holding the substrate, the transferable stage further configured to move between an operating position and a payload position during non-operation, said payload position for receiving and removing said substrate; and a fluid delivery nozzle being in a fixed location relative to the transferable stage, at least during operation, with an outlet position that is configured to deliver a fluid to a predetermined location on said transferable stage.

  • Publication number: 20220366049
    Abstract: A method of operating a media scanner to protect a target machine from malware on a removable storage device is disclosed. The target machine and the removable storage device each include a respective data line, and the media scanner comprises a data switch. Data is scanned on the removable storage device with malware detection software of the media scanner via a first data path, the first data path comprising the data line of the removable storage device connected to the data line of the media scanner by the data switch in a first switching state. After the data has been scanned with the malware detection software, the data switch is operated to switch from the first switching state to a second switching state, thereby disconnecting the data line of the removable storage device from the data line of the media scanner and connecting the data line of the removable storage device to the data line of the target machine.

  • Patent number: 11331642
    Abstract: An apparatus for the production of solid dosage forms is presented, wherein the apparatus comprises a material processing chamber which is operable for manufacturing a product according to a pre-set product formation process path. The apparatus has at least one sensor for continuously monitoring formation of the product in the material processing chamber during the product formation process non-invasively in real time by sensing at least one product functional attribute value and a means for comparing each sensed product functional attribute value with a desirable product functional attribute value for that point on the product formation process path. A controller controls operation of the material processing chamber in response to the sensed product functional attribute value for maintaining the product on the product formation process path.
