20120055853Apparatus For Separating Particles Utilizing Engineered Acoustic Contrast Capture Particles - An apparatus for separating particles from a medium includes a capillary defining a flow path therein that is in fluid communication with a medium source. The medium source includes engineered acoustic contrast capture particle having a predetermined acoustic contrast. The apparatus includes a vibration generator that is operable to produce at least one acoustic field within the flow path. The acoustic field produces a force potential minima for positive acoustic contrast particles and a force potential minima for negative acoustic contrast particles in the flow path and drives the engineered acoustic contrast capture particles to either the force potential minima for positive acoustic contrast particles or the force potential minima for negative acoustic contrast particles.03-08-2012
20100084319Support Chain with Wear Protection for a Support Device for Separating Substances Having Different Flowabilities - A support chain for a device for supporting a compression belt in a separation device for separating substances having different flowability. The support chain includes an articulated chain having individual chain links that form a flat surface. The links include chain pins with chain plates threaded thereon. A locking device is attached to opposite ends of the chain pins to hold the chain plates together on the chain pins. End pieces are adapted to receive the locking device so that the support chain is planar on both sides facing transversely to the direction of conveying of the support chain. Each end piece connects adjacent chain pins to each other and includes a sliding element and compensating elements. The sliding element has recesses which each include a through-bore and a non-through bore for receiving a respective compensating element. Each recess is constructed to receive the compensating element and locking device therein.04-08-2010
20120031815PILL SORTING STYLUS TOOL AND PILL SORTING SYSTEM - A pill sorting system to sort, channel, and discharge a plurality of pills. The system includes a sorting tray having a sorting region to receive the plurality of pills and a discharge region including a spout configured to discharge pills from the tray. The system also includes a stylus tool having a body with a first and second end. The first end includes adhesive to pick up a pill and the second end is adapted to sort and move pills within the tray and through the spout.02-09-2012
