  • Patent number: 11383217
    Abstract: A method of processing a polycrystalline diamond element may include providing a protective leaching cup having a rear wall, an opening defined by a portion of the protective leaching cup opposite the rear wall, and a side wall extending between the opening and the rear wall, the side wall and the rear wall defining a cavity within the protective leaching cup. The method may further include positioning a polycrystalline diamond element in the cavity defined within the protective leaching cup. Positioning the polycrystalline diamond element in the cavity may include expanding at least a portion of the opening outward from a center of the opening. The method may additionally include exposing at least a portion of the polycrystalline diamond element to a leaching agent.

  • Patent number: 10807913
    Abstract: A polycrystalline diamond element includes a polycrystalline diamond table having a body of bonded diamond particles with interstitial regions. A first volume of the body includes an interstitial material and a second volume of the body has a lower concentration of interstitial material within the interstitial regions than the first volume. The polycrystalline diamond element includes an element face and a peripheral surface. The first volume is adjacent to a central portion of the element face and the second volume is adjacent to the peripheral surface. A method of processing a polycrystalline diamond element includes forming a concave region in the polycrystalline diamond element, exposing at least a portion of the concave region to a leaching solution, and removing at least a portion of the polycrystalline diamond material that was exposed to the leaching solution from the polycrystalline diamond element.

  • Patent number: 9960589
    Abstract: The stovetop timer kit is an aftermarket circuit interrupt device adapted for use with electric stoves. The stovetop timer kit uses a current transducer that senses the current flow to the burners and oven of the electric stove. A microcontroller monitors the current flow through the current transducer and when an overcurrent situation is sensed the microcontroller cuts off electric current flow to the burners and oven of the electric stove. The microcontroller is a programmable device that is used to control and operate the device. The stovetop timer kit comprises a control module and an interrupt circuit.
