  • Patent number: 9053827
    Abstract: A soft pivot dimple nuclear fuel assembly grid that utilizes a “dog bone” shaped window cutout and radius coining of edges perpendicular to coolant flow, to reduce the susceptibility of fuel rod leaking during the reactor operation. Radius coining allows the fuel rod to smoothly transition over the radiused edge to the flat rod contact section of the dimple. The symmetric “dog bone” shape enables the dimple to pivot during rod loading resulting in improved alignment between the dimple and the fuel rod, thereby minimizing scratching. The “dog bone” shape also allows for a large contact area dimple to be softer than a typical dimple which reduces contact stresses and fretting wear during reactor operations.

  • Patent number: 7850063
    Abstract: A tamper evident envelope is disclosed which includes sealing strips located within the seams of the envelope. Each strip is formed by two clear plastic strips secured together. One of the clear plastic strips includes a groove and a dye located within the groove whereby the dye is sealed between the two clear plastic strips. When a seam is separated, the sealing strip is damaged thereby releasing the dye onto the adjacent portions of the envelope and providing visual evidence that the seam was opened. A second embodiment is disclosed where the dye is omitted and separation of the secured clear plastic strips results in damage to the envelope providing visual evidence of tampering.

  • Publication number: 20080110320
    Abstract: The purpose for the all aluminum housing, it is used for producing sound out of aluminum. When the aluminum is used, to make an instrument—yes, the embodiment of the instrument is aluminum; which it makes the instrument lighter to hold, and it gives a distinguishing sound. A clean, clear, crisp and firm quality sound; no more waiting a year for your instrument to cure, or using your instrument till it cure, or heavy woods or heavy plastics. The reason for the all aluminum housing used for producing sound, and also having a use—for a speaker box to be made out of all aluminum, and not wood to make the speaker box lighter in your home or vehicle (when carrying around your speaker box in your vehicle). The purpose for the all aluminum housing, it's usage for producing sound, and it is ideal for a car back window surface lid. And, it is ideal for intercom boxes; and for a speaker frame for speakers.

  • Patent number: 7114432
    Abstract: A torque control for a hydrostatic piston pump that provides for a servo piston rod that is connected to the swashplate of the pump and connected to a servo piston within a first cavity that receives compensation pressure that urges the servo piston toward the swashplate. The servo piston has a stem that extends into a bore and is in contact with the stem of a maximum displacement piston that extends into a second cavity that is acted upon by system pressure to urge the maximum displacement piston toward the swashplate. Additionally, within the second cavity is a set of Bellville washers that surround the stem of the maximum displacement piston to limit the movement of the maximum displacement piston toward the swashplate.

  • Patent number: 6892977
    Abstract: A dispenser for dispensing roll stock material comprises a pair of rollers for receiving the roll stock material, the pair of rollers being axially offset. A base supports the pair of rollers and a wheel assembly is coupled to the base. The wheel assembly enables movement of the dispenser and rotation of the pair of rollers causes the roll stock material to be unrolled. The rollers are driven by a drive mechanism to deliver a free end of material to a workstation for processing.
