Joseph L. Kauschinger has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 6254524
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for treating confined material such as buried waste or areas of contaminated earth by injecting a plurality of high velocity jets of treating fluid into the material over a limited depth in multiple directions from each of a plurality of injection holes. The high velocity jets remain stationary, but the arrangement of the jets emanating from an injection hole in multiple directions produces a result similar to a rotating jet but with increased penetrating force. The jets are operated sequentially over the limited depth of each injection hole to treat a layer of the material and are then moved and again operated sequentially over another limited depth of each injection hole to provide treatment of the material by layers. This allows effective treatment of material surrounding each injection hole without substantial interference from treating fluid flowing through the material from a previously treated hole.
