Abstract: A crusher which can transmit energy to be applied to a piston to a silicon lump efficiently, and a silicon lump crushing apparatus which can crush a silicon lump into small pieces by suppressing the production of powders as much as possible and enables the automation of the crushing work of a silicon lump. The crusher is constituted such that a hammer head is connected to a piston. When compressed air is not applied to the piston, the hammer head is elastically urged to a standby position and when compressed air is applied to the piston, the hammer head is moved from the standby position to collide with the silicon lump. In the silicon lump crushing apparatus, a plurality of crushers having a hammer head to be collided with a silicon lump are opposed to the silicon lump supported on a support base and spaced apart from one another.
Abstract: The present invention discloses a machine for shredding plastic container. The machine comprises a pressing device, a fixed plate having slits arranged in matrix pattern, where said plate is positioned at one end within the housing and said slits face the interior space of the housing, a movable plate having plurality of blades connected to at least one arm, wherein said plate is arranged to move along a central axis within the housing and said blades edges facing the sharp edges of said fixed plate where the blades configuration correspond to slits matrix pattern. When operating the machine the containers are placed in-between said movable plate and said fixed plate, such that when the movable plates moves along the central axis of the housing toward the fixed plate, the blades crash and cut/shear the container into flakes of predefined size suitable for recycling.
Abstract: Two pill crushing/dispensing cups are provided, with a base cup and a nesting cup being snap-fit together top-to-top which defines a cavity for storing a dosage of pills. By decoupling the cups with the base cup facing upward and inserting the nesting cup therein the pills are crushed/ground between a pair of opposing abraded surfaces. A flange on the exterior of the nesting cup limits the advance of nesting cups such that the opposing abraded surfaces do not mesh. The nesting cup is removed and a liquid is added to the base cup. The cups are again snap-fit together and shaken to facilitate complete suspension of the pill crushings. The cups are decoupled and the suspension is administered directly from either cup.

Abstract: The invention was developed in order to effectively crush and disperse various samples easily and efficiently without using any expensive device. By laminating a polyethylene film 3, a net member 7, a net member 9 and a polyethylene film 5 in sequence and welding these members to one another at weld portions 13a and 13b, a bag member 15 is formed. Further by forming a fastener 17 in the vicinity of an opening 15a, a crushing and dispersing bag 1 is completed. After a sample and a dispersing medium are introduced through the opening 15a, the bag is sealed with the fastener 17. Subsequently, when the crushing and dispersing bag 1 is squeezed, the sample is ground by the file-like irregularities formed by the net members 7 and 9 on the inner surface of the bag 1.
Abstract: Two pill crushing/dispensing cups are provided, each having an interior and an exterior abraded surface on the cup bottom. A pill is placed within a first of the cups and a second cup is nested within the first such that the pill is positioned between the first cup interior knurled surface and the second cup exterior knurled surface. The pill is crushed as the second cup is rotated and advanced within the first cup, a fluid is added to the first cup forming a fluid/pill crushing suspension therein, and the suspension is orally administered directly from the first cup. Both cups may be identical in design.
Abstract: The present invention relates to a capsule for storing and vibration mixing of two component materials for dental application, particularly of dental amalgam components. The capsule encloses a mixing space in which a first component and a pestle are disposed. The pestle is in the form of a hollow body with a removable cover. The pestle serves as a container for a second component and has at least one opening. The opening permits the exit of the second component which opening is rendered passable as a result of a mixing vibration movement.
