|20120069700||Gearbox with Breather System - A gearbox is provided having an integrated breather system. The output shaft of the gearbox has integrated therein a breather bore with a top port in the top end of the output shaft and a bottom end in the side of the output shaft. The top end is in communication with the atmosphere while the bottom end is in communication with the inner oil reservoir of the gearbox. By incorporating the breather directly into the output shaft, air locking is reduced or even prevented. Further, the distance between the maximum and minimum oil fill levels is increased thereby allowing for a reduction in accidental over or under filling of the gearbox. In addition, accidental spillage of oil into the environment is reduced as the top breather port exists on top of the gearbox and may optionally include a breather line extending further upward. The reduction in air locking allows for increased accuracy in oil filling as well as reduced maintenance on the gearbox.||03-22-2012|
|20100108794||Auger for vertical mixer - A vertical mixer for mixing bulk material is disclosed. The vertical mixer includes an auger having an auger post and flighting including upper flighting and a lower flight. In one example, the auger comprises cutting knives positioned on an outside edge of the flighting for cutting bulk material during rotation of the auger. The auger also includes an angled knife connected to an outside edge of the flighting and oriented so that a blade of the angled knife is positioned at an angle suitable for allowing the angled knife to at least partially cut loosened bulk material that may be bridging in the mixing chamber thereby at least partially preventing or reducing bridging in the mixing chamber and allowing the bulk material to fall towards the floor of the mixing chamber and increasing the cutting action of the cutting knives.||05-06-2010|
|20090296517||Auger for vertical mixer - A vertical mixer having an improved auger for mixing bulk material is disclosed herein. The vertical mixer comprises a mixing chamber for receiving the bulk material. The mixing chamber being defined by a floor and a peripheral wall and includes a door for allowing exit of mixed bulk material. The vertical auger in the mixing chamber has an auger post and flighting including a bottom flight. The bottom flight has a front leading edge and an outside edge defining an outside footprint of the bottom flight. A slide plate is connected to the bottom flight for guiding bulk material at least inwards towards the auger post. The slide plate comprises a front corner; a bottom edge; and a top edge opposite the bottom edge. The bottom edge has a portion closer to the auger post than the front corner, and a portion extending inward on the bottom flight away from the outside edge of the bottom flight. The slide plate extends from the bottom flight at a shallow angle β relative the floor of the mixing chamber.||12-03-2009|
|20090040868||Liner for Vertical Mixer - A vertical mixer assembly for mixing a bulk material having improved wear-resistant is disclosed. The vertical mixer comprises a floor having an upper surface; at least one wall extending from the floor and having an interior surface and an upper edge; wherein the floor and the at least one wall define an open topped mixing chamber having a general tub-shape suitable for receiving the bulk material. The mixing chamber comprising an outlet for egress of mixed bulk material. The vertical mixer further comprises at least one vertical auger positioned in the mixing chamber for mixing the bulk material, the auger having an exterior surface suitable for mixing the bulk material upon operation of the auger; and a non-metallic wear-resistant material coating or covering at least a portion of the mixing chamber. Also disclosed herein are methods of increasing the wear-resistance of a vertical mixer.||02-12-2009|
