  • Patent number: 6665492
    Abstract: A high-velocity, accurately responsive impingement heater provides heated air at a substantially constant temperature to a process location to effect control of a process. The heater includes an air line for conducting air from an inlet thereof to the process location. A heat exchanger, including a plurality of electrical heating elements, heats air conducted through the air line. A power driver is connected to the heat exchanger and applies current to the heat exchanger. A controller is connected to the driver and receives a predetermined process temperature input from the user, as required for effecting control of the process. A process temperature sensor is positioned at the process location and measures the temperature of the air provided to the process location. The process temperature sensor provides a process temperature signal to the controller which is indicative of the air temperature at the process location.

  • Patent number: 6234172
    Abstract: A transportable life support system for providing medical care to a patient while transporting the patient from one location to another has a platform configured to receive the patient, a plurality of medical devices attached to the platform for providing medical monitoring and medical therapy to the patient, and a control and display panel comprising controls and displays for the medical devices. The control and display panel provides a centralized location for monitoring and controlling the medical devices so as to mitigate a need for an operator to move about the platform in order to individually observe a display for each medical device and to individually control each medical device.

  • Patent number: 6018614
    Abstract: A portable compressed air heating system for delivering a flow of heated air directed at a substrate. The system first includes a hot air distribution member for placement in juxtaposition with the substrate and thereafter distributing heated air collected from a heater module. Second, the system includes a heater module for receiving and heating a continuous volume of air, and is equipped with an adjustable velocity production element for drawing and delivering heated air to the hot air distribution member. An interface conduit connects the heater module to a system controller disposed upstream therefrom, and includes circuitry directed by the controller for operation of the heating module. The system controller includes an air-in port for receiving air, an air-out port for distributing air, a heater-power conduit, a temperature controller, an air pressure monitor, and an air pressure adjuster.
