  • Patent number: 5862741
    Abstract: An indoor and outdoor smokeless grill comprising a housing which contains at least two openings, one at the bottom and one at the top. The housing consists of a water tank, which is situated between the openings of the housing. The housing is situated on a heat source such as a stove, whereby the hot air that rises from the burner of the stove will bypass the tank and will cook the meat that is situated on a grill that is disposed on top of the housing. When fat from the meat melts, the fat will drip into the water tank, such that fat will not drip on the heat source, thus grilling the meat while avoiding the smoke that results from the burning of the fat.

  • Patent number: 5652970
    Abstract: A toilet reservoir water dumping valve for sealing the reservoir's water outlet by hydraulic pressure and for controlling the water volume to be flushed. The dumping valve is situated in the toilet reservoir at the water outlet to the toilet bowl, the dumping valve comprising a membrane housing, and a rod connected to a flush valve. In a first position, when the flush lever is in OFF position, the membrane disconnects communication between the supply line and the reservoir. Simultaneously, the rod is pressed by hydraulic pressure, tightly pushing a flush valve against the reservoir exit. In a second position, when the water is flushed, the membrane opens communication between the supply line and the reservoir, reducing the pressure on the rod, such that the rod pulls the flush valve away from the reservoir outlet, permitting water to be flushed down the toilet bowl.

  • Patent number: 5650564
    Abstract: A fluid drip detection system which is not prone to false alarms caused by the presence of dirt or solid particle contaminants in the fluid. The fluid drip detector comprises; a conducting hollow housing for permitting fluid flow and passage therethrough, the housing having a first and second conducting seats. A first conducting door is urged against the first seat and a second conducting door is urged against the second seat. The first and second doors disengage from their respective seats in a drip condition and in response to fluid movement. A conducting rod is connected to one of the doors and is slidingly fitted into a bore in the other door, such that in a no drip condition, if one of the doors is disengaged from its seat by dirt, the other door can still engage its seat, and a lead connected to the housing, for producing an electrical output in the event of a drip. Such electrical output is transmitted to a timer unit that can control the fluid flow by controlling a cut off valve.

  • Patent number: 5616830
    Abstract: An electric resistance measuring device situated in fluids, comprising; a housing having a bore therethrough, the bore having a seat; a movable door means situated in the bore, engagable with the seat; whereby, fluid movement disengages the door from the seat, changing the electrical resistance between the seat and the door. Such a device can detect leaks which increase the electrical resistance between the seat and the door. A panel provides selector means which can be set at different modes, each mode providing a different period of time in which fluid can be used continuously without interruption. If fluid movement exists after such period, a cut off valve will shut off the fluid. Such a device can be installed in line with fire sprinklers, such that the device will detect a fire and will send a signal to a central station.

  • Patent number: 5566028
    Abstract: An apparatus, which exposes the blind spot in the direction in which a vehicle makes a turn, to be installed at the back of mechanically or electrically operated side-rear view mirrors. A mechanical device, connected to a mirror unit and to the frame, having a diaphragm sealingly disposed therein. When a winker switch is activated, the diaphragm housing is activated by vacuum, causing the diaphragm to be sucked backwards, resulting in said mirror unit pivoting backwards to expose the blind spot, further, when there is no vacuum the mirror unit is returned to its original position by the returning means. The invention also operates where instead of one mirror, there are two mirrors hinged together, whereby the mechanical device pivots only one of the mirrors to expose the blind spot, such that the other mirror is left to expose the rear-view of the car. The invention can also operate by pivoting the mirror frame to expose the blind spot rather than pivoting the mirror unit.
