  • Publication number: 20140319259
    Abstract: A crusher includes a main body that includes a crushing structure and an adjustment structure. The adjustment structure includes an adjustment hydraulic cylinder, a slide block mechanism, which is operatively coupled to the adjustment hydraulic cylinder, and a pull bar hydraulic cylinder, which is operable in combination with the adjustment hydraulic cylinder and the slide block mechanism. The adjustment structure includes an operation control module for adjusting a crushing gap and effecting position returning after an operation problem is removed. With such an arrangement, in operation, the operation control module issues a command to actuate the adjustment hydraulic cylinder for adjusting a crushing gap of the crushing structure. When an excessively high pressure occurs due to jamming, coordination between the adjustment hydraulic cylinder and the operation control module enables fast expansion of the gap to the maximum for removing a jamming object and automatic returning to the initial gap setting.

  • Patent number: 8444077
    Abstract: An integral blender includes a hollow shell having a horizontal conical plate integrally formed in the interior to divide the interior of the hollow shell into a container portion and a base portion. The conical plate has a through hole. The base portion is employed to accommodate a transmitting mechanism provided with a shaft extending out of the through hole to be fixedly connected with a cutter in the container. The shaft is closely wrapped with a waterproof annular seal having the bottom combined together with the conical plate. Therefore, with the container portion and the base portion integrally formed together, manufacturing cost can be lowered and convenience in practice can be advanced.

  • Publication number: 20130099034
    Abstract: The present invention provides a food waste disposal system comprising a load cell located between the housing fixture and the support frame so that the load cell measures the weight of the food waste disposal system and sends the warning message to a control touch panel installed on the front upper plate of the food waste disposal system in case the user inserts more food waste than maximum allowable weight limit of the food waste disposal system. Two rotational shafts are aligned in parallel along the horizontal direction of the food waste disposal system with a screw-shaped ribbon connected to the rotational shaft by a ribbon supporter and a mixing blade is installed on at the one end of the rotational shaft, so that food waste inserted in the mixing basin is effectively mixed, crushed, decomposed and drained out through a washing chamber.
