  • Publication number: 20210129199
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and a regulating device for regulating a rolling process, wherein a rolling material is rolled in a rolling gap between two working rollers of a rolling stand. According to the invention, a desired forward slip value (fs) for a forward slip (f) of the rolling material is specified, and an actual forward slip value (fM) of the forward slip (f) of the rolling material is ascertained. The forward slip (f) of the rolling material is regulated to the desired forward slip value (fs) in that a lubricant rate (uR) of a lubricant is applied to the rolling material and/or at least one working roller depending on the actual forward slip value (fM) and the desired forward slip value (fs).

  • Patent number: 6321785
    Abstract: The invention relates to a sanitary proximity valving (1) having an associated control device (8) with a sensor device (9) and a valve device (10) coupled with the control device (8), whereby the control device (8), after detection of a signal by the sensor device (9), activates the valve device (10) to release water. The aim of the invention is to provide a sanitary proximity valving (1) which can be used also in the private sphere without major inconvenience, and is thus characterized in that the control device (8), after detection of a signal from one side, activates the valve device (10) to release cold water, whilst the control device (8), after detection of a signal from the other side, activates the valve device (10) to release warmer water.

  • Patent number: 6305036
    Abstract: The invention relates to a flow controlling arrangement having at least one valve (3, 12) with a valve box (14) and with an adjustable valve gate (15) which is located in the valve box (14), the valve box (14) having a supply (16) and at least one discharge (17, 18), the at least one valve (3, 12) varying the water flow amount supplied from the discharge (17, 18) to a bathing vessel (1), especially a bathtub or a whirlpool, or to a fitting (11). In order to make provide a flow controlling arrangement which has an expanded scope of application for the user, there is an actuator (29) which is connected to the valve gate (15) for resetting the valve gate (15) and a control (9) connected to the actuator (29) which triggers the actuator (29) depending on a tune chosen by the user or according to a preset actuating pulse pattern for setting the valve gate (15). Thus, according to the setting of the valve gate (15), a regular or irregular change of the water flow amount through the discharge (17, 18) arises.

  • Patent number: 5497584
    Abstract: A plaster-protective cover for bathroom fittings is mounted recessed in the wall, the cover being fixed to the buried part of the fitting and having an outwards-facing dome-shaped cap designed to protect the fitting parts inside it. The hole in the wall for the fitting is sealed by a collar-like sealing element which produces a watertight seal and which has, at the wall end, an annular flange which rests against the wall. The flange is embedded in a layer of sealing material applied following installation of the buried part of the fitting as the bed layer for subsequently laid tiling, and the flange thus seals off the edge of the hole pierced in the wall for the buried part of the fitting.
