  • Patent number: 10408379
    Abstract: A hanger system for temporarily hanging a valve bank on a vertical mounting face of a substrate. The hanger system includes one or more hanger brackets for attaching to the vertical mounting face. The valve bank has one or more mounting studs protruding from an underside surface of the valve bank, in which the mounting studs are configured to couple with the hanger brackets for temporarily hanging the valve bank on the mounting face with the underside surface facing toward the mounting face. The mounting studs and hanger brackets are configured to cooperate with each other to allow the valve bank to be secured in multiple different orientations against the mounting face, thereby facilitating fixedly mounting the valve bank to the mounting face with one or more fasteners that are received through corresponding fastening receivers in the valve bank.

  • Patent number: 8517898
    Abstract: A portable hurdle for use primarily athletes has a base portion operably secured to a bow portion that holds the hurdle to a predefined height when the bow portion is placed in tension by a securing structure. The hurdle lays substantially flat when the bow portion is returned to its neutral position. In one disclosed embodiment, the securing structure is a trap that forms the top of the hurdle. In other disclosed embodiments, the base portion defines the top of the hurdle. An adjustment structure allows for adjustment of the hurdle's height.

  • Publication number: 20060170748
    Abstract: A media path control device has two sets of parallel arms with opposing rollers to manipulate the movement of print media. The arms are moveable in a substantially vertical plane through motors. The arms can be of different lengths to establish an optimal trajectory or height of the media to change the trajectory or travel path of the media. The rollers are reversible to change the trajectory or travel path of the media. Rotation of the arms may be stopped at various points along their travel arc to position the media at a desired or plane.

  • Publication number: 20050096554
    Abstract: A finger mounted acoustic sensor. Various embodiments of the finger mounted acoustic sensors include sensors mounted within a casing designed to fit between fingers. The sensor may be rotated with respect to the casing. Other embodiments include mounting tubes for wearing on a finger. Sensors are embedded in the tube and on the rings such that they are easily positioned using technician's fingers. Other embodiments include rings for mounting sensors on and for steadying the sensors. The hand and finger mounted sensors may be used to provide necessary pressure to the sensor and yet provide a sensor that may be manipulated using hand and finger motion. In other embodiments sensors having a local disconnect are disclosed. Such disconnects may be attached to the clothing of a medical professional, attached via a wrist or armband or the like. Various sensor packages may be accompanied by the use of a flat or flex cable to minimize the torque necessary to manipulate the sensor.

  • Patent number: 5762787
    Abstract: A readily serviceable ancillary fluid filtration system has a fluid flow diverter with a quick-release fluid hose fitting (132). A manifold (200) is releasably securable to the cartridge filter (198) that includes a filter element (204) enclosed in a housing (202) covered by an end cap (208) having an inlet tube (210) and an outlet tube (212) that are matable with a push-in fitting (226) in at least one of the outlet and inlet of the manifold. A lever mechanism (230) pivotally mounted to the manifold pushes against the push-in fitting in response to a force applied to the lever by a user to separate the housing from the manifold.

  • Patent number: 5725025
    Abstract: A readily serviceable ancillary fluid filtration system has a fluid flow diverter with a quick-release fluid hose fitting (132). The quick-release fitting attaches to and receives fluid flowing from a manually actuatable diverter body (130) that is attachable to a faucet waterspout (104). The fitting carries a pivotally mounted lever arm (168) that functions as a manually actuatable push tab-release mechanism. A user squeezes the free end (182) of the lever arm to release a hooked end (166) thereof from a flange (158) extending from the body and either inserts tubes (174, 176) into or withdraws the tubes from the diverter conduits (152, 154).

  • Patent number: 5709795
    Abstract: A readily serviceable ancillary fluid filtration system has a filter element enclosed in a container with a hose storage system. The container has a hose storage compartment for storing any unneeded length of hose. A hose management guide structure is located within the hose storage compartment to facilitate adjustment of the lengths of the hoses and storage of any unneeded length of hose after fluid filter assembly installation. The hose management guide structure includes multiple spaced-apart pegs placed within the hose storage compartment so that the hoses travel along a serpentine path within the hose storage compartment as they are fed lengthwise therein.

  • Patent number: 5549010
    Abstract: A readily serviceable ancillary fluid filtration system has a visual flow rate meter (10) and a quick-release fluid hose fitting (132). The flow rate meter includes a torsionally resistant element such as a bifilar wire (56) that operatively connects an impeller (24) to a housing (14) to bias the impeller to resist its angular displacement at a position that is indicative of the incoming fluid flow rate. The impeller has a surface with angularly spaced color-coded regions (72, 74, 76) that change their positions relative to a window (12) in the housing. An observer can view through the window the color of the impeller and thereby ascertain the incoming fluid flow rate. The quick-release fitting attaches to and receives fluid flowing from a manually actuatable diverter body (130) that is attachable to a faucet waterspout (104). The fitting carries a pivotally mounted lever arm (168) that functions as a manually actuatable push tab-release mechanism.
