  • Publication number: 20230030215
    Abstract: A work machine, such as a skid steer loader or a compact track loader, includes a directional air intake assembly with a directional cap positioned on an intake pipe for selectively drawing ambient air into an internal combustion engine. A cooling vent ejects air heated by a rear-mounted engine upwardly into the atmosphere. Extending higher than and adjacent to the cooling vent, the directional cap has an elongated head that blocks ingress to the intake pipe other than through an opening at a face of the cap. Selectively positioning and angling the opening between a side of the loader and an edge of the cooling vent avoids taking in debris from near the wheels or tracks, avoids taking in heated air from the cooling vent, and takes advantage of negative pressure caused by the updraft from the cooling vent to remove particulates, resulting in cleaner air for the engine at close to ambient temperature.

  • Publication number: 20220183217
    Abstract: A system for dispensing liquid agricultural products with seed includes an agricultural product supply system configured to dispense agricultural products. The system includes a seed tube for introducing seed. A tube-mounted nozzle is positioned on the seed tube for introducing liquid agricultural product into the seed tube. A gaseous fluid line is in fluid connection to a source of gaseous fluid. A gaseous fluid bubble generation assembly is in fluid communication with the gaseous fluid line. The gaseous fluid bubble generation assembly is configured to generate bubbles. The gaseous fluid bubble generation assembly is arranged and constructed so that when the gaseous fluid from the gaseous fluid line is passed therethrough bubbles are generated and agglomerated when the gaseous fluid encounters the liquid agricultural product within the seed tube.

  • Patent number: 9523198
    Abstract: A coalescing additive is used in the manufacturing process for gypsum wallboard. Such an additive increases the surface area and density of the slurry at the paper to core interface by coalescing the foam cells away from the paper core interface. This permits a stronger paper to core bond to form and increases the compressive strength of the gypsum wallboard as compared to standard wallboards made from slurries with reduced water levels.

  • Patent number: 7137378
    Abstract: An attachment and support system is provided for supporting a flame arrestor and cover at a preselected position relative to a throttle body which, in turn, is attached to an air intake manifold. A support member is attached, by four bolts, to the air intake manifold. The four bolts, or alternative attachment components, simultaneously attach the throttle body to the air intake manifold and the support member to the throttle body. Both the flame arrestor and cover are attached, by a stud, to the support member.

  • Patent number: 6118682
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to providing a storage device, such as a content addressable memory, which enables multiple matches to be simply and efficiently examined during a multiple match cycle, regardless of the size of the storage device. For example, where two matched entries in a content addressable memory correspond to a search address, exemplary embodiments reduce the task of examining the locations of these matches to processing only two matched addresses as opposed to having to match all entries of the content addressable memory. By providing an efficient access to multiple matched entries of a memory, the multiple matches can actually be used in an ordered manner to access different branches of a secondary memory. The use of a relatively simple control scheme enables the control logic to be implemented on a single integrated circuit chip with the memory device itself (e.g., a content addressable memory).

  • Patent number: 6107814
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to methods and circuits for testing open collector or open drain output pads. In a preferred embodiment, the open collector or open drain outputs are hard driven to both their normal low and high level logic states during a test mode of operation. By actively driving open collector or open drain output pads to both their active and their inactive states, the existence of a stable output at any given sample time is guaranteed during a functionality test. The need to accurately estimate time delays associated with RC loads of external circuitry and the need to precisely strobe an open collector or open drain output following transition to an inactive, disabled state are therefore eliminated. Further, control signal inputs associated with a high impedance condition of open collector or open drain output pads can be directly examined at the circuit output using appropriate test logic.
