Method And Apparatus For Storage Battery Electrolyte Circulation

View page
US Patent:
42218470, Sep 9, 1980
Filed:
Sep 4, 1979
Appl. No.:
6/072097
Inventors:
Mark S. Inkmann - Milwaukee WI
Assignee:
Globe-Union Inc. - Milwaukee WI
International Classification:
H01M 240
US Classification:
429 70
Abstract:
An electrolyte reservoir in fluid communication with the cell of a storage battery is intermittently pressurized with a pulse of compressed gas to cause a flow of electrolyte from the reservoir to the upper region of less dense electrolyte in the cell. Upon termination of the pressure pulse, more dense electrolyte is forced into the reservoir from the lower region of the cell by the differential pressure head between the cell and reservoir electrolyte levels. The compressed gas pulse is controlled to prevent the entry of gas from the reservoir into the cell.

61434388, Nov 7, 2000
Filed:
Feb 24, 1998
Appl. No.:
9/028732
Inventors:
Matthias Geibl - Germantown WI
Thomas J. Dougherty - Waukesha WI
Gerald D. Slayton - South Milwaukee WI
Mark S. Inkmann - Wauwatosa WI
Guy L. Pfeifer - Milwaukee WI
Assignee:
Johnson Controls Technology Co. - Plymouth MI
International Classification:
H01M 212
US Classification:
429 72
Abstract:
An improved vent cap system for use in an electrochemical battery is provided which includes a ring flange for forming a ring seal between the vent cap assembly and the fill tube. When the vent cap assembly is positioned in the battery housing, the ring flange and the fill tube deform to create a seal therebetween to provide a fluid tight seal.

International Classification:
B60K 1100
B60R 1604
US Classification:
180 682
Abstract:
A battery thermal control system including a casing for the battery and a cover for enclosing the battery in the casing, the casing being provided with a number of ribs for supporting the battery in a spaced relation to the bottom of the casing and to the side walls of the casing, a fan connected to discharge air into the casing for circulation through the spaces between the battery and the casing and a bypass duct for connecting the fan to a warm air source for heating the battery in the winter. A timer circuit is provided for continuing the operation of the fan after the engine is turned off. The timing circuit including a temperature switch for activating the timer circuit when the temperature is above a preset minimum.

Thermal Stabilization Shield For Storage Batteries

View page
US Patent:
55432484, Aug 6, 1996
Filed:
Feb 17, 1995
Appl. No.:
8/390682
Inventors:
Thomas J. Dougherty - Waukesha WI
Mark S. Inkmann - Wauwatosa WI
Debra L. Smith - West Allis WI
Michael T. Reher - Grafton WI
Assignee:
Globe-Union Inc. - Milwaukee WI
International Classification:
H01M 200
US Classification:
429163
Abstract:
A battery shield for a storage battery includes first and second members which are dimensioned to fit around the battery, forming a shield structure, that is open at its top and encloses the battery on all four sides and on the bottom, forming a heat shield for protecting the battery from hot temperatures, the first and second members being hinged to a common base and are adapted to be pivoted about respective hinges outwardly away from another to an open position to facilitate installation of a battery in the shield and to then be moved upwardly and toward one another, in the manner of a "clamshell", to a closed position for enclosing the battery within the battery shield.

International Classification:
B60K 1100
B60K 1302
B60R 1604
US Classification:
180 682
Abstract:
A battery module for insulating a battery from the heat of the engine of a motor vehicle, the module including a battery compartment, an air inlet and an air outlet, a first air flow path connecting the air inlet to the air outlet and a second air flow path around the outside of the battery compartment connecting the air inlet to the air outlet, a damper positioned in the housing for movement between a first position wherein the first air flow path is open and the second air flow path is closed and a second position wherein the first air flow path is closed and the second air flow path is open, a shape memory alloy member for moving the damper from the first position to the second position when the ambient temperature exceeds a predetermined minimum and a spring for biasing the damper to the first position when the ambient temperature is less than the predetermined temperature.

Method And Apparatus For Portion Control

View page
US Patent:
44600542, Jul 17, 1984
Filed:
May 25, 1982
Appl. No.:
6/381835
Inventors:
Mark S. Inkmann - Milwaukee WI
Neil C. Karolek - South Milwaukee WI
John G. Reichard - Menomonee Falls WI
Donald A. Inkmann - Milwaukee WI
International Classification:
G01G 1956
G01G 2310
US Classification:
177149
Abstract:
The manual portioning of non-uniform bulk products, such as the bagging of freshly prepared food products in fast-food restaurants, is controlled by a method and means which provide rapid and accurate individual portioning and consistently accurate feedback to the operator. Accurate real time weighing is provided quickly for every portion, and apparatus is disclosed to provide dynamic weighing such that no significant additional time is required for the portioning cycle. Since the feedback to the operator is based on true rather than estimated weight and is presented at the optimum time and location, the operator learns to portion the products accurately, as well as consistently.
