  • Patent number: 8622079
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for extending the usage life of cooking oil used in a deep fat fryer in which the desired cooking oil usage life is determined. Upon the occurrence of a triggering event, the level of cooking oil in the vat of the deep fat fryer is varied between an upper first level and a lower second level by extraction of used cooking oil from the vat until the cooking oil level reaches the lower second level and subsequent input of fresh cooking oil until the level of cooking oil, used and fresh, in the vat reaches the upper first level.

  • Patent number: 7926479
    Abstract: An infrared heater for heating a cooking vessel, such as a Chinese wok. The heater includes a block of refractory material, which emits infrared radiation upon heating to an elevated temperature, forming an inverted frustum-shaped cavity or opening. A gas-fired burner having a burner head which produces a laterally directed flame upon ignition of a mixture of a fuel gas and a combustion oxidant supplied to the burner is disposed in the cavity or opening. A planar structure suitable for emitting infrared radiation upon heating to an elevated temperature and forming at least one centralized opening covers the upward oriented base end of the inverted frustum-shaped opening. In accordance with one embodiment, the refractory block is disposed within a cylindrical housing which supports the cooking vessel above the centralized opening during the cooking process.

  • Patent number: 6445889
    Abstract: In an electrostatographic development system wherein toner is conveyed from a donor member over a development gap to a charge receptor by a development field in the development gap, a method including the step of: monitoring at least a first parameter of the system to detect an arcing condition within the development gap; and if an arcing condition is detected, tuning a duty cycle to avoid the arcing condition.

  • Patent number: 6139974
    Abstract: A composite panel is formed by bonding together at least two overlying sheets of metal. The method comprises performing a first corrugating operation on each of said sheets, and positioning said sheets in overlying relationship with the corrugations of each sheet extending in a common first direction and the corrugations of each sheet nested into those of the other sheet. The method also comprises performing a second corrugating operation arranged to produce corrugations which extend in a second direction which is inclined at an angle of at least 10.degree. to said first direction. Each sheet is formed into parallel upstanding ridges separated by troughs. The troughs in each sheet are received within the ridges of the other sheet. The troughs have reentrant side walls and the ridges vary in width along their length.

  • Patent number: 5815771
    Abstract: A printing machine having multiple distributed high voltage power supplies is disclosed. The printing machine comprises a print engine having a plurality of high voltage electrical printing machine components. A housing supports at least one of the high voltage power supplies. A receptacle mounted on the housing receives an external connector from one of the machine components. The receptacle is fixed on the housing and is not detachable. A contact located inside the receptacle electrically connects circuitry from the power supply to the external connector. A second contact on the housing electrically connects circuitry from the power supply to a second external connector on the machine component.

  • Patent number: 5497760
    Abstract: An efficient convection oven is described. The oven utilizes a single inlet centrifugal induced back draft fan disposed in a sidewall thereof between vertical burners and combustion chambers to constantly mix products of combustion from the combustion chambers with air from within the oven cavity and recirculate the same. The fan design of the instant invention permits air changes within the oven cavity in the range of 85 to 100 per minute and the vertical burner fan combustion chamber combination permits a dramatic increase in the rack space within the oven cavity for a given oven exterior envelope.

  • Patent number: 5421317
    Abstract: A ventilated conveyor oven is provided. The oven uses a makeup air fan to admit air to the plenum extending across the front of the unit and across the top of the unit. Exhaust channels are provided on the sides spaced above and below the conveyor oven entrance and exit and extending across the top to an exhaust fan outlet. The exhaust channels on the top are superimposed over the air makeup plenum.

  • Patent number: 4782521
    Abstract: A time manager for a personal terminal can be generally characterized as a things-to-do file in which the user inputs a to-do reminder message along with a data and time that the terminal user wants to be alerted (reminded). The notion of a terminal time manager is advanced by displaying reminder messages directed to calling a named entity that is contained in the terminal telephone directory and by automatically calling the named entity when the user points to the displayed reminder. If the user inputs the actual telephone number to be called in place of the named entity, then the telephone number will be called even though the telephone number is not contained in the directory.
