||PCT/SG2013/000177||VISWANATHAN, Mahesh||VISWANATHAN, Mahesh|
One of the major tasks in a household utensil cleaning is scrubbing the utensils manually to remove soiling before it is washed either manually or using mechanical dishwashers. This manual scrubbing consumes lot of time and energy of a domestic user. The proposed mechanical/automatic scrubber eliminates the manual scrubbing and saves time and energy of a domestic user. Two set of scrubbers, one set for the outer surface and another set for the inner surface of the utensil, are used to scrub the outer and inner surfaces of utensils actuated by one or more electric motors so as to scrubs whole utensils efficiently. The proposed mechanical scrubber will be built to scrub almost all utensils of different sizes and shapes. A combination of flexible materials like rubber and air balloon are used to reach one and all surfaces both inside and outside surfaces of the utensils with scrubbers to remove soils.

||PCT/SG2014/000136||ADVANCED MATERIAL ENGINEERING PTE LTD||HENG, Khee Ngee|
The present invention provides a grenade launcher (100) in which a barrel (130) is connected to a receiver arm (110a) by a barrel pivot (150) and a releasable latch mechanism (170). When the barrel (130) is released from the receiver arm (110a) by the latch mechanism (170), the barrel pivot (150) allows the barrel to droop about 5 degree about a transverse Y-axis at the barrel pivot (150) and at the same time allowing the barrel to be turned laterally about a vertical Z-axis to the left or right hand side of the receiver arm. A top surface of the receiver arm has a Picatinny rail (120), a forward end of which is disposed a stopper plate (122) to secure a pivot pin (152) within the receiver arm (110a). The stopper plate (122) is provided to transmit recoil forces to an external device connected at the Picatinny rail (120).

||PCT/SG2014/000124||WISEWATER PTE. LTD||LIU, Haobing|
Some embodiments described herein generally relate to apparatus and methods for performing polarized electrodialysis, which may be used for desalination, purification and concentration. Such apparatus may include, for example, a pair of electrodes, a plurality of ion exchange membranes disposed between the pair of electrodes and a reservoir between each of the electrodes and the ion exchange membranes. The ion exchange membranes may include cation exchange membranes alternating with anion exchange membranes. A voltage may be applied between the pair of electrodes to generate concentration polarization wherein concentration of ions near the surface of one of at least one of the cation and anion exchange membranes is lower than a concentration of ions in the sample solution. The solution with lower ion concentration may be collected to form a desalinated stream by the apparatus. The apparatus and methods may also be able to remove or concentrate less mobile, weakly charged or bigger matters which cannot be purified by conventional electrodialysis.
