  • Patent number: 10221890
    Abstract: A lubrication apparatus is provided. The lubrication apparatus includes a tray having opposing sides, opposing ends, a bottom member and a cavity formed therewithin. A plurality of roller assemblies is positioned within the cavity. The roller assemblies are configured for rotation and further configured to receive the bushing therebetween. A motor is mounted to the tray and configured to rotate the plurality of roller assemblies. Rotation of the plurality of roller assemblies urges rotation of the bushing. A lubricant material is positioned in the tray and configured to contact the roller assemblies. Rotation of the roller assemblies brings the lubricant material into contact with the outer surface of the bushing. The motor and the roller assemblies are further configured such that a single revolution of the bushing results in a substantially uniform layer of a lubricant material on the outer surface of a bushing.

  • Patent number: 8453884
    Abstract: A liquid dispensing apparatus includes a receptacle defining a chamber for containing a liquid material and having a top opening. A press mechanism includes a sealing valve disposed movably in the chamber and covering the top opening, and a press seat disposed above the sealing valve to move the sealing valve in the chamber. The sealing valve has a deformable membrane facing an interior of the chamber and adapted to press the liquid material. The press seat has a base plate, and a press rod projecting downwardly from the base plate and having a lower end connected to the deformable membrane. The deformable membrane deforms when pressed by the press rod, and produces a suction force when returning to an original shape.

  • Publication number: 20130112716
    Abstract: A pump dispenser is intended for oral administration of medicines. A pump receives fluid product through a valved inlet from a container, preferably of the airless type with a follower piston. The dispenser may be a movable-nozzle or fixed-nozzle dispenser. The discharge outlet of the dispenser has a stub nozzle incorporating a closure valve. A spring urges the closure valve forward to close a discharge opening of the stub nozzle. The nozzle attachment is shaped for oral dosing and has an internal rearwardly-projecting actuating structure which, when the nozzle attachment is coupled onto the stub nozzle, pushes the closure valve open. When the nozzle attachment is removed the spring closes the outlet again. Child-resistant features are described for fitting the nozzle attachment to the stub nozzle.

  • Publication number: 20130112712
    Abstract: Pump dispenser, particularly a movable-nozzle pump dispenser, is intended especially for use in dispensing oral medicines e.g. to children. One feature disclosed is a tooth or ratchet structure engageable between the plunger head and the pump cylinder body. This enables optional holding of the plunger at an intermediate position during a dispensing stroke, so that a dose can be given bit by bit. Other proposals are formations around the top of the cylinder body which interact with the inside of the plunger to control or limit movement of the plunger according to their relative rotational orientation. For example the plunger may be locked up unless turned forcibly past a rotational stop. A related feature is a spring lock tab preventing rotation of the plunger unless the tab is pressed to release it. The product container may contain balls to cause agitation.

  • Publication number: 20120285996
    Abstract: A ratchet bar push structure of grease gun includes a gun body and a grease storage section. A ratchet bar is slidably disposed in the gun body and reciprocally movable as a piston to dispense grease supplied by the grease storage section out of the gun body. A pad section is movably disposed between the ratchet bar and a push member for pushing the ratchet bar as a force transmission unit. A user can change the position of the pad section to control whether an action force of the push member is transmitted to the ratchet bar. When the pad section is positioned in a padded position, the external force is applied to the ratchet bar via the pad section to push the ratchet bar. When positioned in a released position, the force transmission path is interrupted, whereby the ratchet bar will not be pushed by the push member.

  • Patent number: 8308029
    Abstract: A dispenser has a reservoir to hold a fluid, in at least one embodiment a viscous cosmetic, with a pump and a set of groove protrusions attached integrally. The dispenser fits within an outer casing that houses the reservoir and has a set of grooved passages with a flat upper section, a flat lower section, and a slope in between which seat the set of groove protrusions. The dispenser is raised and lowered within the outer casing with a hollow rotating body that has a set of straight grooves that simultaneously seat the set of groove protrusions so that when the hollow rotating body is twisted on top of the outer casing, the dispenser can move up or down. The hollow rotating body also has a notch to seat a button and nozzle actuating top when the dispenser is rotated to its lowest position. When the button and nozzle are depressed, fluid is dispensed through the nozzle. More or less fluid is dispensed depending on how high the dispenser is raised with respect to the outer casing.
