|20150300390||LOCKING MECHANISM FOR MOVABLE COLUMN - One embodiment includes an assembly with a movable column with an upper end and a lower end, wherein the lower end includes a recessed opening. The assembly also includes a locking foot assembly with a base foot and a locking mechanism. The locking mechanism includes a latch which is spring biased and at least partially extends outward from the base foot such that the latch comes into contact with the lower end of the movable column and is retractable inward into the base foot when the spring is compressed, such that the latch of the locking mechanism can both engage and disengage the recessed opening in the lower end of the movable column.||10-22-2015|
|20110229291||Wear system for receptacle with sliding frame - A system for reducing wear includes a receptacle having at least one wall and a floor for holding material within the receptacle. An opening is located in the floor for accessing material held in the receptacle. A sliding frame is located above and parallel to the floor for agitating material held in the receptacle. At least one component is included inside the receptacle to reduce wear on the floor and/or sliding frame, and/or a wear indicator is located outside of the receptacle to monitor wear on the floor and/or the sliding frame.||09-22-2011|
|20100260615||Multi-pump sequencing - A pump system for pumping a viscous material that includes N positive displacement pumps, where N is an integer greater than two, and a hydraulic drive. Each pump has an inlet and an outlet therefrom, and a pair of cylinders each with a piston movable in a reciprocating stroke cycle therein. The hydraulic drive is connected to the N positive displacement pumps to reciprocate the pistons within the cylinders. The stroke cycle includes a discharging stroke and a filling stroke. The discharging stroke and the filling stroke of the N positive displacement pumps are staggered from one another by 1/N stroke positions such that no two pumps have pistons in the same stroke position at the same time.||10-14-2010|
|20100239398||Floating seal stuffing box for silo with reciprocating frame - A silo includes a stuffing box forming for use with a reciprocating frame. A push-rod extends from a hydraulic cylinder through a stuffing box and a silo wall to actuate a reciprocating frame. The stuffing box forms a floating seal around the push-rod capable of moving with the push-rod to accommodate misalignment.||09-23-2010|
|20100158652||Obstruction clearance mode for silo with reciprocating frame - A method for clearing obstructions in a silo having a reciprocating frame uses an obstruction clearance mode. The method includes driving at least one frame in a reciprocal motion across a silo floor until sensing an indication that at least one frame has encountered an obstruction. Upon sensing the indication of obstruction, an obstruction clearance mode is initiated in an attempt to clear the obstruction.||06-24-2010|
|20100158651||Silo with reciprocating frame having blanking plate - A silo with a reciprocating frame includes a blanking plate that is capable of limiting the amount of material released from the silo. A blanking plate is attached to at least one reciprocating frame and is configured to substantially cover an opening in a floor when the reciprocating frame is centered above the opening in the floor.||06-24-2010|
|20100158650||Silo with reciprocating frame having beveled inner surfaces - A reciprocating frame for a silo has outside bevels located on outer surfaces of a rim. Outside bevels slide under material as the reciprocating frame moves across a silo floor. The reciprocating frame has inside bevels located on inner surfaces of the rim. The inside bevels contact material at an angle that provides downward force to the reciprocating frame as it moves across the silo floor.||06-24-2010|
|20100158649||Silo with reciprocating frame having composite blade - A reciprocating frame for a silo has a rim and at least one support extending across an interior of the rim. A first composite blade is located on the rim and includes a filler material. A method of manufacturing a composite blade for a reciprocating frame includes forming an angle base to define a pocket, filling the pocket with a filler material, and forming the angle base and filler material into a composite beveled cutting surface for reciprocating frame.||06-24-2010|
