||WO||WO/2014/169396 - SUPPORTING STRUCTURE FOR ATTACHING A SOLAR MODULE TO THE ROOF OF A BUILDING OR A FAÇADE OF A BUILDING||23.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2013/000062||MONTAVENT AG||MEIER, Christian|
The invention relates to a supporting structure (4a, 4b), formed from several interconnected profile sections (5, 6, 7a, 7b, 8, 9; 5, 6, 8, 9, 18), for attaching a solar module (1) to the roof of a building (2). A first (6) and a second (7a, 7b; 18) of the profile sections are interconnected such that the profile longitudinal alignments thereof intersect at an angle, in particular of 90°, and said profile sections (6, 7a, 7b; 6, 18) are interconnected by means of a form fit in all four directions transverse3 to the profile longitudinal direction of the second profile section (7a, 7b; 18). In three of the four directions transverse to the profile longitudinal direction of the second profile section (7a, 7b; 18) this form fit is produced by profile surfaces of the first profile section (6) abutting profile surfaces of the second profile section (7a, 7b; 18) and the two end-surfaces (13) of the first profile section (6) abut profile surfaces of the second profile section (7a, 7b; 18). This design principle according to the invention makes it possible to form supporting structures for attaching solar modules to the roof of buildings, which structures require no, or only very few, further components in addition to the profile sections, can be produced cost-effectively and are quick, simple and safe to install.

||PCT/CH2014/000047||SAINT-GOBAIN GLASS FRANCE||RATZEL, Paul Kirk|
The invention relates to a method for producing a ceramic glass disc, having the following steps: providing a green glass disc, mechanical abrading and/or polishing of the green glass disc subsequent to the abrading and/or polishing, and ceramising the green glass disc to form the ceramic glass disc. It has surprisingly been found that polishing time and polishing outlay can be significantly reduced if the glass is polished before the ceramising step.

The invention relates to a flosser (1) that comprises a gripping element (2), a retainer (3) that is connected to said gripping element (2) and has a first and a second retainer arm (6a, 6b), and an interdental cleaning element (4) which is secured to the first and second retainer arms (6a, 6b) and extends between said two retainer arms.
||WO||WO/2014/166003 - METHOD FOR BUILDING PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES BY MEANS OF PROFILES CONSISTING OF A SHAPE-MEMORY ALLOY, AND STRUCTURE PRODUCED USING SAID METHOD||16.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000030||RE-FER AG||LEINENBACH, Christian|
The invention relates to a method according to which a profile consisting of a shape-memory alloy is placed into concrete, or a concrete to be reinforced is roughened on the outside, then profiles (2) consisting of a shape-memory alloy are fastened to the roughened outside (9) of the structure (6) and a cementitious matrix is applied to the roughened outside (9) to cover the profiles (2). After the cementitious matrix has set, said profiles (2) produce a contraction force and thus a tension as a result of the input of heat. The mortar covering layer (16) thereby acts as a reinforcement layer owing to the interlocking of the mortar covering layer (16) with the roughened outside (9) of the structure (6). The profiles (2) run in an outer mortar as a reinforcement layer (16) of the outside of a structure along the outside of the structure inside the mortar or reinforcement layer (16). A structure can also be prepared for a prestress in the equipped mortar or reinforcement layer by the input of heat, in that electrical cables (3) are routed from the end regions thereof to the outside of the mortar or reinforcement layer (16) or the end regions of the electrical cables (3) are accessible by removing inserts (5).

||PCT/CH2014/000044||V-ZUG AG||DOHNER, Nina|
The invention relates to a method for operating an oven using hot steam and to an oven for carrying out the method. The cooking product (2) can be introduced into the cooking chamber (1) without a steam-insulating cover, and the cooking chamber temperature (TGR) in the cooking chamber (1) can be controlled for example by introducing steam in a metered manner such that the cooking product temperature (TGG) follows a time-dependent cooking-product-temperature target value curve (TGGS). The cooking-product-temperature target value curve (TGGS) has at least one first section and a second section which follows the first section, and the cooking-product-temperature target value curve has a greater increase in the first section than in the second section. Using said method, the cooking product (2) can be cooked quickly and gently even without using a bag.

||WO||WO/2014/161099 - DEVICE HAVING A FLOW CHANNEL||09.10.2014||
||PCT/CH2014/000041||MEDELA HOLDING AG||FELBER, Armin|
The invention relates to a device having a flow channel (K) for a fluid, comprising a check valve (4) arranged in the flow channel (K), which check valve allows the fluid to flow through the flow channel (K) in a first direction and which prevents flow through the flow channel (K) in a direction opposite to the first direction. The device further comprises a flow detector (5) for detecting the flow of the fluid through the flow channel (K), wherein the flow detector (5) detects a change in the check valve (4). Said detected change serves as an indicator for the flow of the fluid. The device according to the invention allows flow to be detected using simple means, by using an existing check valve as the indicating means.
