Title: Corrugated pipe adhesive applicator apparatus

Abstract

Apparatus for coating selected portions of the troughs of a corrugated pipe with an adhesive includes a support disposed within the pipe with a reservoir containing the adhesive disposed on the support. A pump, including a spout, is utilized for supplying the adhesive from the reservoir to a trough of the pipe. A rotatable applicator is supported on the support and contacts the trough of the pipe. The applicator itself is sized so as to fit within the trough, and contacts the adhesive in the trough and spreads the adhesive in the trough upon rotation. A trough shield, supported by the support and disposed in the path of rotation of the applicator, is utilized to prevent the applicator from contacting selected portions of the trough. A locator head is also disposed on the support and provides a way for aligning the spout, the applicator, and the trough shield with the trough. 4 figs.

  • Apparatus for coating selected portions of the troughs of a corrugated pipe within an adhesive includes a support disposed within the pipe with a reservoir containing the adhesive disposed on the support. A pump, including a spout, is utilized for supplying the adhesive from the reservoir to a trough of the pipe. A rotatable applicator is supported on the support and contacts the trough of the pipe. The applicator itself is sized so as to fit within the trough, and contacts the adhesive in the trough and spreads the adhesive in the trough upon rotation. A trough shield, supported bymore » the support and disposed in the path of rotation of the applicator, is utilized to prevent the applicator from contacting selected portions of the trough. A locator head is also disposed on the support and provides a way for aligning the spout, the applicator, and the trough shield with the trough.« less
  • A coaxial hyperthermia applicator is disclosed for applying non-invasively electromagnetic energy to a body against which it is placed. The coaxial applicator antenna has formed integrally within it a non-invasive radiometric antenna for receiving thermoelectromagnetic emissions. The coaxial-configured applicator produces a bell-shaped radiation pattern symmetric about the axis of symmetry of the coaxial applicator. Integrating the radiometric antenna within the coaxial applicator produces a single device that performs dual functions. The first function is to transmit non-invasively energy for heating a subcutaneous tumor. The second function is to receive non-invasively thermal electromagnetic radiation from the tumor by which temperature ismore » sensed and fed back to control the output of the coaxial applicator. 11 figs.« less

  • A non-contact edge coating apparatus includes an applicator for applying a coating material on an edge of a solar cell substrate and a control system configured to drive the applicator. The control system may drive the applicator along an axis to maintain a distance with an edge of the substrate as the substrate is rotated to have the edge coated with a coating material. The applicator may include a recessed portion into which the edge of the substrate is received for edge coating. For example, the applicator may be a roller with a groove. Coating material may be introduced intomore » the groove for application onto the edge of the substrate. A variety of coating materials may be employed with the apparatus including hot melt ink and UV curable plating resist.« less
  • An apparatus for electrically separating particles from a gaseous stream in which high-tension means and a plurality of earthed collecting means are positioned in a housing having inlet and outlet means for flow of the gaseous stream therebetween is described. The high-tension means is connected to a source of high voltage direct current and charges the particles in the gaseous stream. The plurality of earthed collecting elements are disposed in the gaseous stream in the housing to collect charged particles in the gaseous stream. Each collecting element comprises a matrix of alternate flat paper strips and corrugated paper strips gluedmore » to each other to form through-flow channels for gaseous stream. The periphery of the matrix is connected with an electrically conducting, earthed metallic layer to form a block of corrugated paper with edge portions connected to current conducting earthing means. The block of corrugated paper is divided into layers along at least some of the flat paper strips and interleaved between the layers with electrically conducting metal foil each connected to the earthed metallic layer along the periphery of the block. The housing has an opening to receive the collecting elements therein and the housing includes supporting means for supporting the collecting elements in the gaseous stream within the housing. The high-tension means are disposed between the collecting elements in the housing, preferably with at least one collecting element positioned between the first high-tension means and the inlet.« less
