2. WO/2017/174957 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING THREE-PHASE ELECTRIC MOTORWO12.10.2017
H02P 1/32
PCT/GB2017/000052POWER DRIVE EFFICIENCY LTDTUREVSKY, Igor Alexander
Methods and control apparatus for operating a three-phase electric motor are described, in which the motor windings are switched between Star and Delta connections depending on torque requirements, and in which the motor windings are switched to a braking mode when braking torque is required. The electromagnetic torque of the motor is monitored, and a command to switch from Star to Delta is given when the electromagnetic torque rises to reach or exceed a threshold. A command to switch from Delta to Star is given when the electromagnetic torque falls to reach a second threshold. The invention discloses a method of determining instantaneous values for the electromagnetic torque of the motor based on measurements of phase current and phase voltage at particular instants in the voltage cycle. The application further discloses a method of timing the switching operation between Star and Delta configurations, or switching from Star or Delta configuration to a dynamic braking mode, to minimise inrush currents by monitoring the vector relationship between the EMF and the supply voltage and performing switching operations in each motor phase when EMF vector is aligned with the supply voltage vector. The application further discloses switching from Star to Delta or Delta to Star when the torque produced by the motor is substantially equal to the torque requirement of the load to maximise efficiency.

C12N 5/00
PCT/GB2016/053907MICROMATRICES ASSOCIATES LTDPLUMMER, Simon Matthew
A spheroid tissue microarray comprises an array of tissue spheroids embedded within a porous mold. The product may be impregnated with a wax or resin and sectioned, and contains spheroids which are precisely located in a regular geometric grid. A method of manufacturing a spheroid tissue microarray comprises the steps of: forming a mold of porous material from liquid mold material in a casting mold, and allowing the liquid mold material to set; removing the porous mold from the casting mold; topping up the porous mold with further liquid mold material, and allowing recesses to form in the surface of the mold by the drawing-in of liquid mold material through shrinkage as the liquid mold material sets; placing tissue spheroids into the recesses in the surface of the porous mold; and sealing the tissue spheroids within the mold by topping off with liquid mold material and allowing the liquid mold material to set. An alternative method comprises the steps of: forming a mold of porous material from liquid mold material in a casting mold; allowing the liquid mold material to set; removing the porous mold from the casting mold; placing spheroids in recesses at the bases of wells in the mold of porous material; and sealing the spheroids within the porous mold by adding further porous material on top of the spheroids; wherein the recesses at the bases of the wells in the porous material are formed by protrusions of the casting mold carrying further, nipple-shaped, protrusions.

PCT/GB2017/050856ULTRA BIOTECS LIMITEDSNOWBALL, Malcolm Robert
An apparatus for disinfecting products is disclosed herein. The apparatus comprises a tank for holding a liquid for receiving microorganisms from the products. The tank comprises a barrier separating the tank to provide two regions of liquid, the two regions of liquid comprising a first region and a second region, wherein the first region is arranged to provide an open channel for the liquid through the tank to enable a product to be carried into, along, and out of a flowpath through the channel; and the second region holds liquid adjacent to at least one ultrasonic transducer for providing ultrasonic energy to the product via the liquid in the second region and through the barrier.

7. WO/2017/174961 A METHOD OF MANUFACTURING A COMPOSITE COMPONENTWO12.10.2017
B29C 70/44
PCT/GB2017/050858COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY AND APPLICATIONS LIMITEDMARENGO, Giovanni Antonio
There is disclosed a method of manufacturing a composite component comprising a main body and an integral flange, the method comprising applying fibre-reinforcement material on a tool (32) having a main body portion (36) and a flange-forming portion (40, 42) to provide a pre-form (200) comprising a body region (210) and a longitudinally adjacent flange region (212, 214). The pre- form (200) extends generally longitudinally between two longitudinal ends (226); and a trailing ply (202, 204) of the pre-form extends generally longitudinally between the longitudinal end (226) closest to the flange region (212, 214) and an inner ply end (224) located in the flange region (212, 214) or partway into the body region (210). Relative movement between the flange-forming portion (40, 42) and the main body portion (36) causes sliding movement between the trailing ply (202, 204) and the flange-forming portion (40, 42) during a flange forming operation, thereby causing a tension force in at least the flange region (212, 214) of the pre-form of during forming of the flange.

B65D 51/28
PCT/GB2017/050871GIZMO PACKAGING LIMITEDFRUTIN, Bernard D
A closure device (10, 100, 200, 300) for use with a container (34) having a main liquid compartment and an opening (40) with a container neck (38) comprises a cap member (36) adapted to be secured to the opening (40) of the container, a plug member (64) fixed relative to the cap member (36) and having a nozzle (74), a pressurised fluid chamber (60) inside the cap member (36), and a plunger (14). The fluid chamber (60) is slidably mounted relative to the plug member (64) and has a bottom aperture (66) sealingly engageable by the plug member (64). The plunger (14) abuts the fluid chamber (60) and extends through an aperture (37) in the cap member (36). The plunger (14) and fluid chamber (60) are movable relative to the cap member (36) and plug member (64), from a closed position in which the bottom aperture (66) of the fluid chamber is sealed closed by the plug member (64), to a firing position in which the plug member (64) is arranged to provide a fluid communication path from the fluid chamber (60) through the nozzle (74) of the plug member (64). Pressurised additive liquid can thus be ejected through the nozzle (74) at high pressure and mixed with liquid in the container (34) by operation of the plunger (14).

The fluid chamber (104) and neck (109) comprise a unitary moulded article, giving the advantage that the fluid chamber (104) is pressure resistant and not prone to leaks, while being inexpensive to manufacture as it is made from a single component.

10. WO/2017/174964 UV STERILISER ASSEMBLY AND METHOD OF CONSTRUCTING SAMEWO12.10.2017
A61L 2/10
PCT/GB2017/050891ALPHA-CURE LIMITEDCHERRY, Richard
A UV steriliser assembly and associated method for disinfection purposes. The assembly includes a reflector (16) and a UV source, e.g. a lamp (10), configured to emit ultraviolet light at a range of wavelengths. Dependent on the assembly configuration, the reflector (16) is configured to permit or inhibit transmission therethrough of particular UV wavelengths known to assist in the photo-repair of micro-organisms. Transmission of wavelengths known to be destructive to micro-organisms can also be targeted. In this way the effectiveness of the assembly for sterilisation purposes can be optimised.
