Title: Electrically powered hand tool

Abstract

An electrically powered hand tool is described and which includes a three phase electrical motor having a plurality of poles; an electrical motor drive electrically coupled with the three phase electrical motor; and a source of electrical power which is converted to greater than about 208 volts three-phase and which is electrically coupled with the electrical motor drive.

  • This patent describes a tool for removing a top nozzle from a guide thimble of a nuclear fuel assembly. It comprises a handling assembly including an upper handle and an elongated handle pole having spaced upper and lower ends, the handle pole being attached at the upper end to the upper handle and extending downwardly therefrom; a lower tool head including an anchor assembly and a lift assembly, the anchor assembly being matable with the guide thimble and actuatable between disengaged and engaged conditions with the guide thimble; means for coupling the anchor assembly to the lower end of themore » handle pole and for coupling the lift assembly to the lower end of the handle pole; means connected to the anchor assembly for actuating the anchor assembly between the disengaged and engaged conditions with the guide thimble, the actuating means being mounted on the handle pole and extending from the upper handle to the lower tool head.« less
  • This patent describes a reconstitutable fuel assembly including a top nozzle with an adapter plate having at least one passageway, at least one guide thimble with an upper end portion and an attaching structure having a hollow locking tube for releasably locking the upper end portion of the guide thimble within the passageway of the top nozzle adapter plate, the locking tube having upper and lower opposite edges, a tool for removing the locking tube from its locking position. It comprises an elongated hollow tubular assembly having upper and lower opposite end portions, the lower end portion of the tubularmore » assembly being insertable in the locking tube.« less
  • An electrically powered vehicle achieves maximum structural strength with minimum weight by utilizing a combined body and chassis formed entirely of plastic material, molded and bonded into an integral composite structure which includes a central, hollow longitudinal beam, top, bottom, and side panels of the vehicle body portion, and a power unit supporting chamber at the forward end closing the forward end of the beam and tying it to the side panels. The beam holds the batteries, and the chamber contains all of the components of the power unit including the controlling device. The structure is thus as rigid andmore » light as possible, in addition to eliminating any possibility of any unwanted grounding or electrical paths. The only metal in the vehicle is that of the additional components such as road wheels, suspension members, steering, and power unit and the fasteners and brackets used to retain them in mounted position.« less
  • A control circuit for a vehicle powertrain includes a switch that selectivity interrupts current flow between a first terminal and a second terminal. A first power source provides power to the first terminal and a second power source provides power to the second terminal and to a heater of a heated diesel particulate filter (DPF). The switch is opened during a DPF regeneration cycle to prevent the first power source from being loaded by the heater while the heater is energized.
  • A petroleum well has a plurality of centrifugal pump stages, a jet pump stage, and an electrical drive motor. A recirculated portion of the output from high pressure stages of the centrifugal pump provides power fluid for the jet pump, and the jet pump aspirates fluid from lower pressure centrifugal pump stages. The balance of the output of the high pressure stages goes to the surface as production. The output of the jet pump supplies the high pressure stages. A centrifugal cleaner upstream of the power fluid inlet for the jet pump cleans that stream of particulates. The overall flowmore » rate through the centrifugal stages exceeds the production rate of the pump by the amount of power fluid for the jet pump. The jet pump caps the assembly and can be separately removed for servicing and adapting the pump to the flow requirements of the well.« less
