  • Patent number: 11172834
    Abstract: A sensor assembly of the present invention includes a fluid chamber. A pressure transmitting fluid disposed facing an artery passing portion of a part to be measured via a film which forms a part of an outer wall of the fluid chamber is accommodated in the fluid chamber. A pressure sensor is provided for detecting pressure of the pressure transmitting fluid as pressure applied to the artery passing portion of the part to be measured. Plate members each having a flat shape along a longitudinal direction of a wrist as the part to be measured are disposed on a side opposite to the part to be measured along the film.

  • Patent number: 7779792
    Abstract: An air-cooled engine (10) has a fan cover (16) for covering a cooling fan (14). The cover (16) is composed of a fan-cover peripheral wall (44) for covering the outside of the cooling fan (14), and a top board (45) for closing off one end of the fan-cover peripheral wall (44). The fan-cover peripheral wall (44) has an internally disposed guiding duct (47) for guiding cooling air (Wi) from the cooling fan (14) to an engine main body (12). A first fastening member (42) secures a portion of the external part of the fan-cover peripheral wall (44) that is proximal to the guiding duct (47) to a casing (25) of the engine main body (12). A second fastening member (41) extends from the casing (25) and through the fan-cover peripheral wall (44), and secures a top board (45) in a portion that is at a distance from the guiding duct (47).

  • Patent number: 7594946
    Abstract: The invention provides an air-cleaner filter material for an internal combustion engine, which comprises a dust-collecting layer comprising a melt-blown nonwoven fabric having a maximum pore size of 100 ?m or less and a dust-retaining layer arranged upstream of the dust-collecting layer and laminated integrally by heat fusion with, the dust-collecting layer, comprising a thermal-bond nonwoven fabric having fibers with two or more fiber diameters arranged in the order of increasing the proportion of smaller fiber diameter in the direction from the upstream to downstream side, wherein the in-plane of the filter material has a portion of high fiber density and a portion of low fiber density, and the portion of high fiber density occurs in a lattice pattern.

  • Publication number: 20090183709
    Abstract: In an engine air cleaner, a suction opening (50) communicating with outside air and a discharge opening (16) communicating with an engine (E) are provided in an upper cover body (11) of a cleaner cover (10), a cleaner element unit (Ue) for cleaning the outside air sucked in via the suction opening (50) is housed within the upper cover body (11), and a skirt wall (11a) of the upper cover body (11) in the vicinity of the suction opening (50) extends further downward than the suction opening (50). This prevents raindrops running down the outer face of the cleaner cover body (11) from being sucked into the interior of the air cleaner via the suction opening (50).
