  • Publication number: 20150129362
    Abstract: A lubricant injector is provided including a body having a passageway, an inlet, an outlet, and an aperture for lubricant to flow from a measuring chamber into the passageway. A piston is slidable along the passageway. When the piston is in a retracted position, a discharge chamber is present in the passageway between the piston and the outlet. A biasing spring is disposed in the passageway for urging the piston towards the retracted position. The injector has a rest mode, wherein no pressurized lubricant is supplied to the inlet, and the piston is retracted. The injector has a pressurized mode wherein the piston is under pressure and is moved to its extended position to urge lubricant out the outlet. In the rest mode, the spring urges the piston towards its retracted position to create the discharge chamber and to open the aperture between the measuring chamber and the discharge chamber.

  • Patent number: 5741066
    Abstract: The mixer has a chamber with a shaft supported for rotation along an axis along the length of the chamber. Two sets of outer ribbon members are coupled to the shaft such that the two set of outer ribbon members are located about 180 degrees apart and extend helically around the shaft. Two sets of inner ribbon members are coupled to the shaft such that the two sets of inner ribbon members are located about 180 degrees apart and extend helically around the shaft. A drive is coupled to the shaft for rotating the shaft and hence the ribbon members about the axis. The two sets of outer ribbon members are located radially outwardly of the two sets of inner ribbon members. Each set of outer ribbon members has at least two radially spaced apart outer ribbon members. Each set of inner ribbon members has at least two radially spaced apart inner ribbon members. One of the two sets of ribbon members has a left hand pitch and the other of the two sets of outer ribbon members has a right hand pitch.

  • Patent number: 5299865
    Abstract: The mixer includes a chamber having first and second, side-by-side tub like cavities with first and second rotatable shafts located in the first and second cavities respectively. Each shaft has two ribbon members coupled to the shaft and which extend helically around the shaft along a substantial length of the shaft with the two ribbon members located about 180 degrees apart. The ribbon members of the two shafts do not intermesh but are located close to each other. A drive mechanism is provided for rotating the two shafts in opposite directions to cause the ribbon members of the two shafts to move toward each other below the plane of the two shafts, upward, and away from each other above the plane of the two shafts for mixing the particulate material. The ribbon members of the two shafts cause the particulate material in the two cavities to move in opposite directions along their lengths.
