|PCT/GB2013/051918||HAINES, David||HAINES, David|
An acoustic apparatus suitable for cleaning soot from a ship's boiler comprises a generator (13) which generates an acoustic signal in the infrasonic range of 0.001 –50 Hz, the acoustic generator being coupled to a first end of a waveguide (12) having a length substantially equal to a quarter of the wavelength of the generated acoustic signal, the second end (17) of the waveguide being open and adapted to radiate the acoustic signal towards the surface to be cleaned.In use, the waveguide (12) acts as a closed tube resonator due to the impedance mismatch between the air pressure inside the waveguide and the external air pressure. Hence, the waveguide resonates at the fundamental frequency and at odd multiples thereof, thereby amplifying the signal generated by the acoustic generator(13). Since the waveguide (12) is only a quarter of a wavelength, the apparatus is considerably smaller in size than known devices.

|PCT/GB2014/050060||LEPTREX LTD||BENNETT, Norman John|
The present invention relates to improvements in or relating to Allium extracts. In particular, it relates to improvements in or relating to extending the therapeutic half- life or duration of Allium extracts. The invention also relates to the synthesis of certain thiosulfinate compounds, especially to the synthesis of methyl allyl thiosulfinate and allyl methyl thiosulfinate, in particular from either methiin or alliin alone or a mixture of both. The invention further relates to the synthesis of methyl allyl thiosulfinate, allyl methyl thiosulfinate, allicin, and methyl methyl thiosulfinate in a mixture with varying molar or mass ratios depending on the reaction conditions, in particular from either methiin or alliin alone or a mixture of both. A high yielding, optimized synthesis of allicin starts from alliin, whereas methyl methyl thiosulfinate is advantageously obtained from methiin. Also provided is a kit comprising methiin in a first container and/or alliin in a second container and an allinase source, in particular garlic powder in a third container. Finally, the invention provides a method of preparing a mixture of methyl allyl thiosulfinate, allyl methyl thiosulfinate, allyl allyl thiosulfinate (allicin) and methyl methyl thiosulfinate from methiin and pieces of an Allium species.

|PCT/GB2014/050123||COVERIS RIGID (MANSFIELD) UK LIMITED||NAYLOR, Stephen|
A container includes a tub (12) and a lid (10). The lid (10) and tub (12) cooperate to allow the lid (10) to be snap fited to the tub (12). A block arrangement (26) engages a short side (22) of the tub (12) and can be raised (as shown) or removed to allow the lid (10) to slide to an open position while the long sides (20) of the lid (10) remain engaged with the long sides (16) of the tub. Accordingly, the lid (10) can be snap fitted or removed from the tub (12), and (10) can also slide open or closed while engaged with the tub (12).

|PCT/GB2014/051871||SONY CORPORATION||CHEN, Jian-Rong|
A packet-based video network comprises two or more video data sources, each configured to launch video data packets onto the network as multicast data packets each associated with a multicast group identifier corresponding to that video data source; and a video data destination configured to receive and process video data from a video data source by joining a multicast group corresponding to that video data source, and to execute a switching operation to switch from receiving video data from a first video data source to receiving video data from a second video data source by leaving a multicast group corresponding to the first video data source and joining a multicast group corresponding to the second video data source; in which: in respect of a frame period during which the video data destination joins a multicast group corresponding to the second video data source and so receives data representing a partial video frame from the second video data source, the video data destination is configured to process video data corresponding to a video frame which, at the end of that frame period, represents a most recently received video frame from the first video data source.

|PCT/GB2014/000237||SMITHS MEDICAL INTERNATIONAL LIMITED||FIELD, Stephen James|
A needle assembly of a metal shaft (10, 10') and an outer plastics sleeve (12) is made by extruding the sleeve onto the outside of the shaft. The sleeve contains gas bubbles (13), preferably with a size in the range 5μ to 10μ, to increase the ultrasound visibility of the assembly. A sharp, penetrating tip (18) may be formed on the shaft either before or after the sleeve is extruded on the shaft. The metal shaft (10) may be supplied to the extruder 1 to 5 in a continuous length and cut to the size of the needle assemblies after extrusion of the sleeve (12). Alternatively, pre-cut lengths of metal shafts (10') could be supplied to the extruder 1' to 5', the sleeve being cut between the shafts after extrusion.

|PCT/GB2014/051841||EDWARDS LIMITED||SEELEY, Andrew James|
A head assembly (10) for a radiant burner, an inlet assembly and a method are disclosed. The head assembly is for a radiant burner. The head assembly comprises: a housing (20) defining a plurality of identical housing apertures (40) extending therethrough; an insulator (30) received by the housing and defining a corresponding plurality of identical, complimentarily-located insulator apertures extending therethrough; and at least one inlet assembly (50) configured to be received by one of the identical housing apertures (40), each inlet assembly (50) comprising: a housing portion configured to be received by the one of the identical housing apertures; and an insulator portion configured to fill the complimentarily-located insulator aperture. In this way, a head assembly is provided which has a number of apertures, any of which may receive an inlet assembly. Given that each inlet assembly is configured to be received by any of the apertures, this provides flexibility for the insertion and removal of the assemblies, without needing to completely disassemble the head assembly from the radiant burner. Also, by forming the inlet assembly with a housing portion and insulation portion, the assembly can be located within the head assembly and the insulating portion prevents heat damage.
