  • Patent number: 10786467
    Abstract: The present invention is a method of preparing a buccal delivery system for treating digestive distress comprising heating a sugar base to lower the water content to about less than or equal to 5 wt. %, removing the sugar base from the heat source, adding the non-volatile ginger extract having at least 10% gingerol by weight, adding the gingerol active to the hot sugar matrix and converting it into a ratio of gingerol and shogaol, ambient cooling the base to a malleable form in which individual dosages are shaped, wherein the gingerol and shogoals are present in an amount and ratio of from 2:1 to 10:1 gingerol to shogoals; where the gingerol and newly formed shogaols are immediately released; and where the typical dosage of the combination is in the range of about 1.0 to 5.4 g.

  • Publication number: 20120014062
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to efficiently cooling converter and inverter components of a drive system in accordance with present embodiments. More specifically, present techniques relate to a motor drive duct system that facilitates efficient cooling and access to motor drive components. The motor drive duct system includes duct channel paths that are parallel and adjacent to one another. These channels are formed by various duct segments coupled together or integrated to form the duct system. In particular, the duct system includes a converter section that houses a converter heat sink, an inverter section that houses an inverter heat sink, an exhaust section, and an air inlet section. The air inlet section may include a blower for blowing cooling air through the duct channel paths of the converter and inverter sections. The converter section and the inverter section are configured to be attached and detached from each other at end sections that are angled to receive one another.
