  • Publication number: 20190273421
    Abstract: A motor assembly is provided with a stator including a lamination stack forming a stator core, stator teeth inwardly projecting from the stator core, and stator windings wound around the stator teeth in connected in phases. A rotor is rotatably disposed within the stator with a shaft, a rotor lamination stack mounted on the shaft, and at least one bearing mounted on the shaft. An external heat sink is provided including a main body defining a hollow opening form-fittingly receiving the stator therein in thermal communication with the stator. A bearing support structure is provided having a main body radially arranged and secured the main body of the external heat sink, the bearing support structure forming a central bearing pocket arranged to receive and support the bearing of the rotor therein to axially and radially support the rotor with respect to the heat sink.

  • Patent number: 10317143
    Abstract: A heat exchanger for transferring heat from a hot gas to a fluid includes two or more corrugated fin structures defining a plurality of hot gas flow channels extending in a generally linear first direction. A fluid conduit includes an outer wall at least partially bonded to at least two of the corrugated fin structures. The fluid conduit defines a plurality of sequentially arranged flow passes for the fluid traveling therethrough. Each of the plurality of flow passes directs the fluid in a direction generally perpendicular to the first direction.

  • Publication number: 20060156756
    Abstract: A container and method for cooling beverages to an acceptable consumption temperature and then for maintaining that beverage temperature for a sufficient time so as to allow the beverage to be consumed is provided. The container includes a beverage chamber for receiving a beverage therein which is defined by an open top, a lid for reversibly sealing the open top, and a beverage chamber side wall. The beverage chamber side wall has an inner wall, an outer wall and a bottom portion. A reservoir side wall is disposed surroundingly at a spaced relationship to the beverage chamber side wall so as to define a reservoir therebetween. A phase change material is disposed in the reservoir.

  • Patent number: 6176100
    Abstract: The present invention provides an insulated container for cooling hot beverages to an acceptable temperature and then maintaining the beverage temperature in an acceptable temperature range for consumption. This invention has an upper reservoir and a lower reservoir surrounding a beverage chamber, the upper and lower reservoirs communicating with one another through at least one passageway having a two-way valve. A liquid located in the lower reservoir is permitted to flow into the upper reservoir through the valve. The thermal liquid removes some of the heat from the hot beverage. After the hot beverage reaches a satisfactory drinking temperature, the liquid is then allowed to flow back through the valve into the lower reservoir. The air in the upper reservoir maintains the beverage at a proper temperature. A method of use is also provided.
