  • Patent number: 10130189
    Abstract: A method of producing a flame resistant ticking includes laminating a flame resistant substrate to a decorative fabric, wherein the substrate is configured to release a chemical vapor that reduces the rate of propagation of a flame along the decorative fabric when the decorative fabric is exposed to flame. The substrate is laminated in direct contact with the inside surface of the decorative fabric. In some embodiments, the laminated ticking is configured to release less than 15 MJ of heat in the first ten minutes when exposed to a flame in accordance with the testing protocol set forth in 16 CFR 1633. Upholstered articles, such as mattresses, mattress foundations, and articles of furniture, may incorporate the flame resistant ticking layer.

  • Patent number: 9702791
    Abstract: A fluid flow sampling device comprises an elongate housing and a sleeve disposed in the housing having openings corresponding to an inlet and an outlet of the housing. The sleeve is movable relative to the housing to an open position and a closed position. The open position aligns the openings of the sleeve with the inlet and the outlet to allow fluid to flow into the inlet, through the sleeve, and out of the outlet. The closed position blocks the inlet and/or the outlet with a portion of the sleeve such that fluid is prevented from flowing through the sleeve. Additionally, a coalescent filter is disposed in the sleeve between the inlet and the outlet to allow some fluid to pass through the filter for sampling and to allow another portion of fluid to flow past the filter and out of the outlet to carry away coalescent material on the filter.

  • Patent number: 7998564
    Abstract: A concrete curing blanket includes a layer of absorbent material and a layer of impervious material bonded to the absorbent material layer in face-to-face relationship at intermittent locations such that the impervious material layer between the intermittent locations can lift away from the layer of absorbent material in response to air bubbles rising through the layer of absorbent material. The intermittent bonding locations may take the form of a pattern or may have a random occurrence. The absorbent layer of material is a hydrophilic nonwoven fabric and the impervious material layer is a film.
