  • Publication number: 20190258286
    Abstract: An operator control apparatus, in particular a remote control apparatus is provided, comprising a splashproof housing and at least one operator control device which comprises an input assembly having a pushbutton head manually displaceable along a longitudinal axis, a rotary member rotatable about an axis of rotation and a coupling mechanism via which a linear movement of the pushbutton head is translatable into a rotary movement of the rotary member, wherein a signal transmitter is held to the rotary member in a rotationally fixed manner, which signal transmitter interacts with a sensor element arranged in the housing. In order to improve the operator control apparatus in such a manner that the input assembly may be mounted with ease and, if required, replaced with ease, the input assembly is insertable in a mounting direction into an exterior recess of the housing and is removable from the recess when required.

  • Publication number: 20190208793
    Abstract: A bun separator separates pre-sliced buns into portions. A bun feeder receives a pre-sliced bun having a plurality of portions and moves the pre-sliced bun along a first feed path. An obstruction is arranged relative to the first feed path and engages at least one portion of the plurality of portions of the pre-sliced bun. An actuator operates to selectively engage at least one portion of the plurality of portions of the pre-sliced bun against the obstruction to separate the least one portion of the pre-sliced bun and transfer the at least one portion to a second feed path.

  • Publication number: 20190211282
    Abstract: A process and a plant are specified, with which free fatty acids can be obtained in a simple manner by hydrolysis of fatty acid alkyl esters, especially fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), or alternatively of fatty acid triglycerides present in oils and fats of vegetable and animal origin. According to the invention, a portion of the free fatty acids already produced is recycled back into the reaction mixture, which results in self-acceleration of the hydrolysis reaction.

  • Patent number: 10183886
    Abstract: A quartz glass tube as a semi-finished product for an optical component that has an inner bore extending along a tube center axis for the acceptance of a core rod and a tube wall limited by an inner casing surface and an outer casing surface is already known; within said tube wall an inner region made of a first quartz glass and an outer region made of a second quartz glass with a different index of refraction surrounding the inner region contact one another at a contact surface which runs around the center axis. In order to provide a quartz glass on this basis that facilitates the production of optical components for special applications such as laser-activated optical components in wand or fiber form, the invention states that the contact surface has a non-round course in the radial cross-section and the inner casing surface has a circular course.
