  • Publication number: 20220263940
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to viewing and updating application views. A device receives a user input, the input, when received initiating display of a plurality of application views of a set of application views. The device, in response to receiving the user input, displays the plurality of application views of the set of application views, wherein the set of application views includes preselected application views and an adaptive view that corresponds to a most recently opened application that is not one of the preselected application views.

  • Publication number: 20220221964
    Abstract: Context-specific user interfaces, e.g., for use with a portable multifunction device, provide, inter alia, indications of time and, optionally, a variety of additional information. A user interface screen including a current time indicator and a first platter is displayed. The first platter is at a first position, is associated with a first application, and displays a first set of information obtained from the first application. The first set of information relates to a first temporal context of the current day. In response to detecting a user input, the first platter is displayed at a second position and a second platter is displayed at the first position. The second platter is associated with a second application and displays a second set of information obtained from the second application. The second set of information relates to a second temporal context of the current day.

  • Patent number: 8763778
    Abstract: A bearing casing assembly for a conveyor roller tube having a casing, a stub axle, bearings, an outer seal member and shield cap, is provided. The casing includes a body having a shoulder at its distal end extending circumferentially and radially outwardly for abutting against an end of the roller tube, an inner flange extending circumferentially and radially inwardly near the distal end from the casing body and an internally threaded a proximal end. The casing also includes a casing seat having a threaded portion for threadingly engaging the threaded proximal end portion of the casing body and a bearing engaging portion adapted to abut the bearing for selectively adjusting a preload on the bearing by rotating the casing seat about the casing body. The bearing casing assembly may further include an inner seal member when fluid lubricating bearings are used.

  • Patent number: 8677768
    Abstract: The system includes a first heat exchanger in which the refrigerant is injected directly into the content of the first liquid circuit through at least one nozzle to simultaneously capture latent heat from the content as purified frozen liquid pieces are formed. It also includes a second heat exchanger in which the refrigerant transfers the latent heat captured from the content of the first liquid circuit to a content of the second liquid circuit, thereby raising the content of the second liquid circuit in temperature. The proposed concept provides designers with opportunities to create highly efficient systems and methods where the latent heat extracted for the purification is immediately employed to a useful purpose.

  • Patent number: 7013504
    Abstract: A top wall assembly to convert a shower enclosure into a therapeutic shower enclosure. The top wall assembly has an air blower in communication with one or more air return orifices in the top wall. An air distribution channel is in communication with the air blower and at least one air injecting orifice is provided in the top wall and communicates with the enclosure. A heater is provided in the air distribution channel for heating convected air therein to a temperature of up to about 75° C. to provide a stream of hot dry air circulating in the enclosure about a person's body standing therein whereby to cause the person's body to transpire and provide a therapeutic effect of shedding toxins through the skin. In combination with the hot dry air treatment there is available a chromotherapeutic and luminotherapeutic light treatment and an ion and ozone generator to inject ions and ozone in the hot dry air stream.

  • Patent number: 5160680
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method of preparing directly compressible granular mannitol, wherein a raw material essentially constituted of powder mannitol is subjected to an extrusion treatment inside an installation comprising a heating zone and an extrusion die, the supply flow rate of the installation with raw material as well as the parameters of the extrusion treatment, namely the temperature existing inside the heating zone, the diameter of the extrusion die and the driving speed of the raw material inside the heating zone being selected so that at the exit of the die and before the exit of the mannitol from the latter, the mannitol is partly fused.

  • Patent number: 4877889
    Abstract: A gluconic acid syrup is introduced into a first crystallization zone 1a which it is brought to traverse under stirring and inside which it is maintained at a constant temperature, the mixture syrup and the gluconodeltalactone crystals emerging from this first zone being brought to traverse a second crystallization zone 1b within which it is subjected firstly to a temperature gradient decreasing globally, possibly modulated then to a substantially constant temperature, the mixture emerging from this second zone being in the form of a crystalline mass rich in gluconodeltalactone crystals from which the latter are recovered.

  • Patent number: 4670611
    Abstract: A syrup of mannitol and of sorbitol is introduced through a pipe (2) into a first crystallization zone (1a) which it is led to pass through with stirring (3) and within which the temperature is maintained substantially constant by a system (4), the mixture of syrup and of crystals of mannitol being led through a pipe (8) to a second crystallization zone (1b) which it is led to pass through and within which it is subjected to a temperature gradient decreasing globally possibly modulated by a system of temperature regulation (12), the mixture emerging from this second zone being in the form of a crystalline mass rich in mannitol crystals from which the latter are recovered. A system of recycling (13) leads, in the vicinity of the upper end of the container (1a), a part of the contents of the container (1b) taken up to a level (15).
