  • Patent number: 11162194
    Abstract: A device for melt-spinning, drawing, and winding a thread group includes a spinning device having a row of spinning nozzles. The threads produced by the spinning nozzles are drawn by means of a godet device with multiple drivable godets. The device is paired with a winding device with multiple winding stations arranged in a row. The row of winding stations is arranged orthogonally to the row of spinning nozzles. The different thread spacings within the spinning device and the godet device are bridged by a thread deflecting device having a first group of thread guides and a second group of thread guides. The thread guides of the first group are arranged next to one another in a horizontal row with a spinning spacing. It is possible to obtain large deflections with a low height. The thread guides of the two groups are made of freely rotatable rollers.

  • Patent number: 10842086
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of impacting the fruit production of a plant or crop by applying short-duration thermal shock streams of hot air to the plant periodically to impact the flavonoid biosynthetic pathway mechanisms in a plant thereby improving its fruit. The method includes the steps of (1) passing by the plant in a row at a speed of 1-5 mph in an improved Thermal Plant Treatment (TPT) machine, (2) ejecting from the TPT machine at least one hot stream of air in the direction of the unit plant area for no more than 15 seconds per unit plant area per pass, (3) optionally measuring the thermal shock profile that the plant is subjected with thermal sensors, and (4) repeating the thermal shock profile treatment steps (1) and (2) at pre-determined regular intervals over at least a fraction of the crop year.

  • Patent number: 10467874
    Abstract: Various embodiments may include fire detector comprising: a fire sensor generating a signal corresponding to a characteristic fire parameter; a control unit; and a photodiode for detecting ambient light in a spectrally delimited range of 400 nm to 1150 nm. The control unit analyzes the signal and generates a fire alarm if the signal corresponds to a predetermined threshold for a fire. The control unit analyzes a photo-signal received from the photodiode and if the flicker frequencies characteristic of open fire are detected, the control unit increases a sampling rate for acquiring the sensor signal from the fire sensor by reducing a filter time of an evaluation filter for the fire analysis and/or by lowering an alerting threshold.
