Multi-Purpose Split-Duct System for Cables

The cable industry uses cylindrical one-piece ducting, but installing cables in such a duct is labor-intensive, difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. This split-duct system features a patented extrusion manufactured from highimpact ABS plastic. The duct sections are hinged together along a longitudinal edge with an integral hinge and “snap” closing system. The system is placed in a trench in a “double-U” configuration and the cables are then laid into the duct. Once the cables are laid, the other half of the ducting system snaps into place, locking the two halves firmly together. The ducting system can also be placed above ground or in ceilings, and comes in a standard length of 3 meters, including bends, tees, and offset sections.

Method of Making Textile Articles Impregnated with Predetermined Levels of Antibacterial Activity

This invention is a method for impregnating textiles with a predetermined amount of durable antibacterial materials (inorganic compound). BacterProof™ is a patented method for embedding an inorganic compound that kills both grampositive and gram-negative bacteria. The inorganic compound is embedded into synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon, which is then blended with cotton in a procedure that produces a fabric with superb antibacterial properties. Any bacteria that comes into contact with the BacterProof™ will be killed before it has a chance to multiply and infect the patient or be transferred to another patient by medical staff. In addition to being self-disinfecting, the fabric is nontoxic, allergy-free, odorless, and contains no chemicals.

Delivery System for Controlled Release of Actives

A technology is sought that will enable delivery of active cleaning compositions triggered at a specific time/place by a large range of conditions. The solution must be environmentally safe, must function at a pH range between seven and 11 and temperatures between 5 and 80°C, be compatible for use with chemicals in liquid or solid form, and be suitable for use in a mass-market consumer product. It must not inhibit homogenous mixing of the active material into solutions or onto substrates after dispensing.

Remote Cloud-Height and Visibility Sensing

A small, low-power automatic sensor technology is needed to determine the cloud coverage, cloud ceiling height between 3,000 to 20,000 feet, and visibility up to at least five miles. These measurements must be provided in day and night conditions. The devices need to be small for easy placement at remote sites (not necessarily near cities or airports) and must operate autonomously.

Non-Damaging Cell Wall Defrosting Method and Apparatus

A defrosting technology was developed to protect cell walls and the quality of frozen products during defrosting. Potential applications include the medical and pharmaceutical industries, cosmetic materials, and foods. The system seldom breaks cell walls because of its quick temperature rising and its high-level uniform heating. In the frozen food field, this system can prevent dripping, and loss of quality and nutrition.
