  • Publication number: 20140000904
    Abstract: A power supply apparatus has at least one modular reserve battery magazine with a plurality of compartments. A plurality of reserve battery modules may be respectively replaceably provided in corresponding ones of the plurality of compartments, each of the plurality of reserve battery modules being configured to provide power when a reserve battery provided therein is activated. Each reserve battery module of the plurality of reserve battery modules includes a sleeve and a reserve battery provided within the sleeve, the sleeve being configured to fit within one of the plurality of compartments in a predetermined orientation. Each sleeve may be detachably connectable within any compartment of the plurality of compartments and includes electrical connections so that each reserve battery module of the plurality of reserve battery modules is separately replaceable while the power supply apparatus remains remotely located.

  • Publication number: 20120035356
    Abstract: Compositions which inhibit corrosion and alter the physical properties of concrete (admixtures) are prepared from salt mixtures of hydroxycarboxylic acids, carboxylic acids, and nitric acid. The salt mixtures are prepared by neutralizing acid product mixtures from the oxidation of polyols using nitric acid and oxygen as the oxidizing agents. Nitric acid is removed from the hydroxycarboxylic acids by evaporation and diffusion dialysis.

  • Publication number: 20110218940
    Abstract: A parking system uses a three-dimensional magnetic field sensor as part of a vehicle detector to monitor plural parking spaces. The detector is calibrated to detect the presence or absence of a vehicle in each of the monitored spaces. The status of each space is communicated to a central controller. A pay station communicates with a central controller when a parking interval has been purchased. The controller may warn customers when the interval is about to expire and law enforcement when it has expired.

  • Publication number: 20070163127
    Abstract: A power drive handle for a handheld tool includes a case with an opening in its nose. A drive motor and a carriage are disposed in the case interior. A drive train located in the interior interconnects the carriage to the motor so that the motor reciprocates the carriage. The carriage is adapted to releasably mount the tool handle so that the tool element thereof projects through the nose opening. A wing extension projects longitudinally forwardly of the nose adjacent to the tool opening. A detachable access panel allows the user to insert and remove the handheld tool. The case can have a compartment to receive batteries for powering the motor. The carriage may be trough-shaped and can be slideably mounted in a longitudinal slideway secured in the casing. The tool element may, for example, be a poker or a saw.

  • Publication number: 20070163125
    Abstract: A handheld tool for removing soft material from an object includes a scoop portion supported by longitudinal handle portion. The scoop portion has a concave wall extending upwardly from a bottom to terminate in a rim edge. The rim edge may have a first edge portion on a first lateral side so as to form forming a first cutting edge with a first cutting characteristic, a second edge portion on a second lateral side so as to form forming a second cutting edge with a second cutting characteristic, and a third edge portion extending transversely of the longitudinal axis to form a third cutting edge. The scoop portion may be rotatably supported on the handle portion. The handle portion may have a proximal portion supporting the scoop and a flattened distal portion offset from the proximal portion. A transverse ridge may be located proximately to the scoop portion.

  • Publication number: 20060154578
    Abstract: A baseball is desirably blasted with an abrasive material to attain a sufficient level of de-slicking. Baseballs are desirably delivered one at a time to a support and rotated while being sprayed with abrasive material from plural directions. Used abrasive material may be collected and recycled for reuse. Baseballs in a hopper are delivered one at a time in one embodiment to a support by selectively aligning an opening in a rotatable hopper element with an opening in a second element to permit the passage of a baseball through the second element and to the support at an appropriate time. Desirably, baseballs are ejected from the support following de-slicking, such as using an ejection lever or wand that is actuated by a timing rod to eject the baseball from the support ahead of the delivery of the next baseball to the support.
