  • Patent number: 10551446
    Abstract: A magnetic sensor for superconducting quantum interference device using single operational amplifier comprising SQUID, a feedback coil, feedback resistor and an operational amplifier. The voltage signal of SQUID is delivered to one input of the operational amplifier, a bias voltage is delivered to other input of the operational amplifier, and the output of the operational amplifier connects to one end of a feedback resistor, the other end of the feedback resistor connects to a feedback coil that is coupled through mutual inductance with the SQUID so as to generate feedback magnetic flux, the output voltage of the operational amplifier drives the feedback resistance to generate current, thereby forming a flux locking loop. The present invention uses an open loop operational amplifier to implement SQUID magnetic flux locking feedback circuit which simplifies the circuit configuration, decrease the loop delay and thereby achieving higher bandwidth of the flux locking loop.

  • Patent number: 9894924
    Abstract: A pasteurization tunnel and a method for pasteurizing beverage packs are described, wherein the beverage packs are conveyed on at least two decks lying one upon the other and sprayed with a heated spraying liquid from spraying pipes extending each transversely to the conveying direction of the beverage packs. According to the invention, the spraying liquid is guided through the spraying pipes of the one deck into the spraying pipes of the other deck. Thereby, the maintenance efforts for removing deposits in sections of the spraying pipes where the flow is weak can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 8607753
    Abstract: A switchable finger lever for a valve drive of an internal combustion engine having an interior lever encompassed by arms of an exterior lever, with a joint axle extending through the levers so they are relatively pivotal. A stub projects from the axle at each exterior side, with the respective stub being encompassed by a coil section of a pivot pin spring, having one leg acting upon the exterior lever and another leg acting upon the interior lever to pre-load the levers relative to each other, with the coil section encompassing a bush encasing an exterior casing of the stub. The bush encompasses the stub with a clearance fit and, for fixation of the axle, an annular groove with a safety ring is located inside the bush bore, and engages a radially inwardly located groove in the exterior casing of the stub allowing the axle to be disassembled without destruction.

  • Patent number: 8071027
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for selectively detecting and/or quantifying superparamagnetic and/or ferromagnetic particles on analytes. The method is characterized in that a frequency component of magnetic fields (15, 18), which is generated due to the non-linearity of the magnetization characteristic curve of the particles, is measured at a mixing frequency. A device for selectively detecting and/or quantifying superparamagnetic and/or ferromagnetic particles on analytes comprises: a container (12) that contains particles, which are to be detected and/or quantified, on analytes; at least one oscillator (13, 16; 25) for generating frequencies of alternating magnetic fields (15, 18); at least one field generator (14, 17) for subjecting the analytes to alternating magnetic fields (15, 18); a magnetic field sensor (20) for measuring a response magnetic field (19) of the particles, and; at least one phase-sensitive detector (21, 23).

    Abstract: A switchable component, which has a housing with a bore and an inner element held in the bore with a head that projects above a rim of the housing. The housing and the inner element are loaded away from each other by a lost-motion spring. At least one coupling piston sits in an opening of the inner element. Sections of the coupling piston are moveable over a ring surface to a carrier surface of the housing. A retaining ring packet has a circular arc-shaped outer surface that lies in a ring groove of the bore of the housing. A ring face of the inner element sits against the underside of the retaining ring packet in the extended state defining relative position. The retaining ring packet, starting from at least one of the surfaces of the retaining ring packet has recesses for forming tab-like sections lying circumferentially between the recesses.
