  • Publication number: 20170128950
    Abstract: A low speed low power shredder for biomass material a single drum or two spaced rotary drums supported in a housing having a cylindrical wall with a plurality of outward shear members spaced longitudinally and radially of the cylindrical wall so as to pass a cooperating element in a shearing action. The shear members form ends of a support plate extending diametrically through the wall so as to provide structural support. In the two drum system, a top grate member is mounted in the feed throat and a bottom grate member is provided underneath the plane of closest approach. Each of these grate members provide shearing actions with the shear members. Additionally, a composting machine is arranged to be fed by a shredder, and thus includes an input conveyor supported at a position coaxial with a rotary vessel of the composter and a tubular support member which defines one location at which the rotary vessel is supported in its rotation about its axis.

  • Patent number: 7753343
    Abstract: A retractable load support system for effectively lifting a load in a controlled manner. The retractable load support system includes a frame, a gerotor attached to a main shaft within said frame, a first spool attached to the gerotor, a biasing device connected to the first spool applying a biasing force to the first spool and an elongated member attached to the first spool. The main shaft is rotatably supported within the frame by a one way bearing allowing the main shaft to rotate when the elongated member is drawn downwardly to reduce the resistance of the gerotor. The main shaft is supported substantially stationary within the frame by the one way bearing preventing the main shaft from rotating when the elongated member is drawn upwardly onto the first spool thereby lifting the load in a controlled manner.
