  • Publication number: 20200208955
    Abstract: A device configured to provide a faster and more accurate measurement of depths of holes for placement of bone screws and fastener for bone implant fixation procedures. The device includes a combination of a bone probe for physical examination of a hole drilled in a bone and a depth gauge member for determining a depth of the hole and providing digital measurement of the depth via a display on the instrument and/or via a wireless exchange of measurement data to a remote computing device, such as a tablet or smartphone. The device may further be connected to a separate neuromonitoring device and be used for nerve sensing and/or nerve stimulation by way of the bone probe. For example, the bone probe may include a conductive material such that the distal probe tip acts as an extension of the neuromonitoring device and may be used to sense and/or stimulate nerves.

  • Publication number: 20190254683
    Abstract: An apparatus and kit for making holes of controlled depth and different diameters on chondral and osteochondral surfaces, comprises: a reamer member (2) having a cutting head (3) for removing tissue from said chondral and osteochondral surface (A), said member (2) being mobile approaching the chondral and osteochondral surface (A) for arranging the head (3) at said tissue; guide means (4) for guiding the reamer member (2) that can be firmly associated with the chondral or osteochondral surface (A), said reamer member (2) being slidable along said guide means (4); and mechanical means (5) for controlling the depth of the hole interposed between the reamer member (2) and the guide means (4) for defining an end stop of the reamer member (2) in the respective movement towards said chondral and osteochondral surface (A).

  • Patent number: 5474442
    Abstract: Diesel fuel is vaporized and then burned on a cylindrical screen flame holder. The fuel is vaporized in a finned, vertical tube vapor generator and directed through a superheater tube past the flame to a flow control valve and nozzle. A flow restriction is provided between a liquid fuel supply and the vapor generator. The flame holder is vertically supported over a mixer and the nozzle. A flame deflector about the flame holder and a reservoir about the nozzle collect fuel condensate during start-up.

  • Patent number: 5362028
    Abstract: A gate valve including a valve housing defining an inlet and an outlet aligned therewith; the housing having a planar inlet surface surrounding the inlet and a planar outlet surface surrounding the outlet and parallel to, facing and spaced a given distance from the inlet surface; a gate plate having a uniform thickness substantially equal to the given distance and defining a throughput opening, the gate plate mounted for sliding movement between the inlet and outlet surfaces and between an open position wherein the throughput opening is aligned with the inlet and outlet and a closed position wherein the throughput opening is substantially transversely displaced from the inlet and outlet; and an actuator for producing movement of the gate plate between the open and closed positions.

  • Patent number: 5232053
    Abstract: An explosion protection system including a container adapted to contain an explosion suppressant under pressure and defining a discharge outlet; a primary storage volume, and an auxiliary storage volume disposed between the discharge outlet and the primary storage volume and communicating therewith; a closure member covering the discharge outlet; an explosive charge disposed in the container adjacent to the closure member and adapted to create explosive forces that rupture the closure member; and a dispersible explosion suppressant retained under pressure in the primary storage volume and having a given degree of compressibility. Also included is an explosive force transmitting agent filling the auxiliary storage volume and having a degree of compressibility less than the given degree.
