  • Patent number: 10632004
    Abstract: A stent is formed from a wire having an outer member, a radiopaque member lining at least a portion of the outer member inner surface, and a lumen defined by the outer member inner surface or the radiopaque member inner surface. A substance is disposed in the lumen to be eluted through at least one opening disposed through the outer member to the lumen. The radiopaque member may be substantially continuous along the length of the wire or disposed only along portions of the wire such as crowns. In a method for making the stent, a composite wire including an outer member, a radiopaque intermediate member, and a core member is shaped into a stent pattern and processed to remove the core member and optionally portions of the radiopaque intermediate member, without damaging the outer member.

  • Patent number: 10603641
    Abstract: An aftertreatment system includes a filter configured to receive an exhaust gas and a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system configured to treat the exhaust gas. A body mixer is disposed downstream of the filter and upstream of the SCR system. The body mixer includes a housing defining an internal volume and including at least a first passageway, a second passageway, and a third passageway. The first passageway receives a flow of the exhaust gas from the filter and directs the flow of the exhaust gas towards the second passageway. The second passageway redirects the flow in a second direction opposite the first direction towards the third passageway. The third passageway redirects the flow in a third direction opposite the second direction towards the SCR system. An injection port is disposed on a sidewall of the housing and configured to communicate an exhaust reductant into the internal volume.

  • Patent number: 10463512
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for filling a therapeutic substance or drug within a hollow wire that forms a stent. The stent is placed within a chamber housing a fluid drug formulation. During filling, the chamber is maintained at or near the vapor-liquid equilibrium of the solvent of the fluid drug formulation. To fill the stent, a portion of the stent is placed into contact with the fluid drug formulation until a lumenal space defined by the hollow wire is filled with the fluid drug formulation via capillary action. After filling is complete, the stent is retracted such that the stent is no longer in contact with the fluid drug formulation. The solvent vapor pressure within the chamber is reduced to evaporate a solvent of the fluid drug formulation. A wicking means may control transfer of the fluid drug formulation into the stent.

  • Patent number: 10450703
    Abstract: The present application provides a tissue product comprising at least about 10 weight percent high coarseness fibers, from about 1.0 to about 10 weight percent synthetic fibers and less than about 10 weight percent long, low-coarseness cellulosic fibers. The high coarseness fibers may be cellulosic fibers having an average fiber length greater than about 2.0 mm and a coarseness greater than 17 mg/100 m, such as Southern softwood kraft pulp fibers (SSWK) derived from a pine in the Pinus subgenus, and the synthetic fiber is a non-cellulosic, thermoplastic fiber such as non-fibrillated polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fibers. In certain embodiments the tissue products may be substantially free from long, low coarseness cellulosic fibers, yet provide satisfactory strength, such as a geometric mean tensile from about 500 to about 1,200 g/3?, and softness, such as a TS7 less than about 11.0.

    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a rotor blade root assembly includes placing outer skin layer(s) onto a blade mold and arranging a root plate with a plurality of through holes adjacent to an end face of the blade mold. The method also includes placing a plurality of root inserts atop the outer skin layer(s) and abutting against the root plate, with each of the root inserts defining a fastener hole. The method also includes inserting a root fastener into each of the aligned through holes and longitudinal fastener holes. Moreover, the method includes placing inner skin layer(s) atop the root inserts. Further, the root plate may include at least one fluid hole configured therethrough to provide a non-gas tight root plate. Alternatively, at least one seal may be arranged between the root plate and the blade mold that forms a non-gas tight connection with either or both of the root plate or the blade mold during a vacuum infusion process.
