  • Publication number: 20180264518
    Abstract: A coating system to coat the interior of a pipeline section using a UV curable coating and an internally pressurized UV foil that assists in suspending and distributing coatings during UV curing. The UV foil may be installed through the length of the pipeline section using an inversion system driven by pressurized air. The system includes a coating delivery system for distributing the coating along the interior of the pipe. The system includes a UV light source capable of delivery sufficient UV light to cure the coating. The UV light source may include a light train having a plurality of UV light sources, such as UV light emitting diodes, carried by a motorized trolley. The coating system includes an inlet adapter that facilitates inversion and pressurization of the UV foil, as well as introduction of the UV light source into the interior of the pressurized UV foil.

  • Patent number: 4404871
    Abstract: A portable chain saw sharpening kit comprises a sharpener body in the form of an inverted U-shaped channel-defining member adapted to be placed over the bar of a chain saw, a rotary burr with a tapered abradant end portion which is receivable in a selected one of two horizontal guide bores provided in the sharpener body, and an alignment pin which is likewise receivable in a selected one of the two guide bores. The alignment pin comprises a shank portion and a reduced end portion, the latter providing an abutment surface for positioning a cutting link within the sharpener body channel in the proper position for sharpening. The shank portion and reduced end portion of the alignment pin are preferably cylindrical and have different diameters, with the reduced end portion being eccentrically offset from the shank portion and having a diameter substantially equal to the widest diameter of the tapered abradent end portion of the rotary burr.
