  • Publication number: 20200324496
    Abstract: A sealant liquid container for repairing an inflatable article, preferably a tyre, comprises a casing defining an inner volume for a sealant liquid, an inlet port for the inlet of a pressurized gas into the inner volume, an outlet port for the injection of the sealant liquid following pressurization of the inlet port, a closing unit configurable between a closing position in which the sealant liquid is retained in the inner volume and an opening position reached following pressurization of the inlet port in which the inlet port and the outlet port are connected by means of the inner volume. In particular, the container further comprises a second inlet port connected to the outlet port in parallel to the first inlet port and a duct for connecting the second inlet port to the outlet port and surrounded by the inner volume.

  • Publication number: 20200316885
    Abstract: A sensing sealant liquid container for repairing an inflatable article, preferably a tyre, comprises a first portion produced by injection moulding and a second portion produced by injection moulding, the first and the second portion being connected to each other to delimit a volume inside which a sealant liquid is retained, an outlet tube for the sealant liquid when the container is pressurized and a sensor for verifying the functional connection of the tube to the inflatable article, and at least one track electrically connected to the sensor and co-moulded on one of the first and the second portion, the track defining a contact releasable electrical connection.

  • Patent number: 10574065
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for charging a battery are disclosed. The apparatus includes a LED member that includes a single LED that is suitable for emitting light of different colours, each colour corresponding to a different operating status of the apparatus, and an acoustic signalling device that is suitable for emitting an acoustic signal indicating a malfunction of the apparatus or the battery. The method includes a first battery heating and desulphation step during which the battery is supplied with current pulses having a maximum value that is considerably lower than the maximum value of the charging current in a subsequent second constant current charging step, each current pulse being generated when the current absorbed by the battery after the delivery of a previous current pulse falls below a minimum preset value.
