Title: CAVE WINDOW

Abstract

A cave window is described. It is constructed of thick glass panes arranged so that interior panes have smaller windowpane areas and exterior panes have larger areas. Exterior panes on the radiation exposure side are remotely replaceable when darkened excessively. Metal shutters minimize exposure time to extend window life.

  • A well production system is disclosed for controlling ingress and egress of high pressure fluid through the annuli formed between the well and a screen support tube internally thereof. The screen support tube and an internal high pressure wash pipe with valves maintain constant high fluid pressure against the overburden during work in the well, as during drilling of an enlarged cavity therein for preventing cave-in and sloughing of the unconsolidated formation well walls until a sand pack is formed and the well producing.
  • A window sash member is described comprising: first and second generally parallel sidewalls; first and second spaced, generally parallel transverse walls connecting the first and second sidewalls, extending between and oriented generally perpendicular to the first and second sidewalls to define a first hollow chamber; a third transverse wall, located without the first hollow chamber adjacent to and generally parallel to the first transverse wall, extending from the first sidewall and terminating short of the second sidewall; a first interior wall extending from the third transverse wall to the first transverse wall and oriented generally parallel to the first sidewallmore » to define a second hollow chamber; a fourth transverse wall, located without the first hollow chamber adjacent to and generally to the second transverse wall, extending from the first sidewall and terminating short of the second sidewall; and a second interior wall extending from the fourth transverse wall to the second transverse wall and oriented generally parallel to the second sidewall to define a third hollow chamber.« less
  • An electron beam source has an electron exit window connected to it. The exit window essentially consists of the window frame, of a support grid (optionally provided with cooling lines) for the foil permeable to electrons, and of the foil permeable to electrons. The grid is formed by one or more bridge elements, each in the shape of a double comb formed by milling slots to extend inwardly from each of a pair of opposite side edges of a substantially rectangular metal plate to terminate at a main bridge element extending substantially centrally of the plate and substantially parallel tomore » the opposite edges. The bridge elements are secured to the window frame solely by disengageable mechanical fastening elements; no welding or brazing, either in forming the bridge elements or in securing them to the window frame, is involved. 4 figures.« less
