  • Patent number: 10371553
    Abstract: transducer apparatus comprises a transducer housing, a tube, a temperature sensor as well as a temperature sensor. The tube is arranged within a cavity of the transducer housing, in such a manner that an intermediate space is formed between a wall of the transducer housing facing the cavity inner surface and an outer surface of a wall of the tube facing the cavity. Furthermore, the tube is adapted to guide a fluid in its lumen, in such a manner that an inner surface of the wall of the tube facing the lumen is contacted by fluid guided in the lumen.

  • Patent number: 8584669
    Abstract: An inhaler (1) is proposed (see FIG. 1), for the inhalation of a formulation (2) from capsules (3) that each contain one dose of the formulation. The capsules are preferably each emptied in a capsule chamber (4) by being set in motion by a stream of air flowing through the capsule chamber. The stream of air can be generated by the inhalation of a user or patient and/or can be generated actively generated by the inhaler. For simple handling, the inhaler has a means for, in particular, automatic filling, emptying and/or cleaning of the capsule chamber, if the latter is used more than once. Alternatively, the inhaler has a large number of capsule chambers that each preferably already contain a capsule and re preferably used just once.

  • Patent number: 8535192
    Abstract: A transmission arrangement is provided for a motor vehicle that includes, but is not limited to a first gear wheel, a first shaft, and a first shaft-like connecting element. The first shaft-like connecting element includes, but is not limited to a first end portion and a second end portion. The first shaft-like connecting element is connected with its first end portion to the first gear wheel and with its second end portion to the first shaft. The first shaft-like connecting element is connected with its first end portion to the first gear wheel via a first plug connection. The first plug connection is secured by means of a first retaining element provided on the circumferential surface of the first shaft-like connecting element.

  • Patent number: 8298575
    Abstract: The present invention relates to capsules for holding pharmaceutical preparations for powder inhalers with increased drug safety and capsules for pharmaceutical preparations for powder inhalers with improved adaptation to their use in powder inhalers. The capsules consist of water-insoluble hydrophobic synthetic materials which do not significantly affect the pharmaceutical quality of the contents themselves, but which improve the usability of the filled capsules with regard to their function, their longevity, and/or the geographic location of their use, and are advantageous at various stages from manufacture up to utilization.

  • Patent number: 4438871
    Abstract: A dispenser for pasty substances and/or liquids has two coaxially arranged metering pistons 11,24 which supply charges of material from two coaxially arranged pump chambers 14,23 through ejection channels 19,26 into an ejection chamber 20. The material can emerge from ejection chamber 20 through an outlet 4. This outlet 4 is controlled by means of plug 21 biassed in closing direction. When the metering pistons 11,24 are on their suction strokes material passes from the supply tanks 17,27 which are likewise arranged coaxially one inside the other. Such a configuration yields a dispenser which consists in essence of two separate dispensers, one inside the other. The two streams of material combine directly ahead of the outlet 4.

  • Patent number: 4323175
    Abstract: A dispenser for cream, sauces, jelly, pastes, syrups or the like which has a main cylinder and a guide cylinder coaxially arranged within it. The annular space between the cylinders is divided into an intake space and a feed space by a displacement piston which allows for drawing the material to be dispensed from a container through an intake passage in the main cylinder and discharging the material through an outlet opening in the forward end of the main cylinder. A closure element is normally biased against the outlet opening and a plunger is provided at the rear end of the main cylinder, bearing against the piston and normally biased in the outward position.
