WO/2016/059652 CREEP ALERTING SUPERWIDE||WO||21.04.2016|
||PCT/IS2015/050016||HAMPIDJAN HF. ||ERLENDSSON, Hjortur |
A creep alerting superwide is formed of a hollow braided strength member formed mainly of synthetic fibers and formed about a solid rod of plastic material where disposed within the solid rod and situated at spatial intervals along the long dimension of the solid rod are a plurality of spatially separated remotely detectable objects. Methods for forming the creep alerting superwide include first coupling the remotely detectable objects with the solid plastic rod, then enclosing both within a flow shield sheath, then enclosing the resultant unit within a hollow braided strength member, followed by subsequently tensing and heating the resultant pre-processed rope until the thermoplastic of the rod is molten, the strength member is elongated and the diameter of the rope is reduced, followed by cooling the rope. The change in length of the spatial interval between consecutive remotely detectable objects is monitored over time to alert operators of the danger of rope failure due to excessive creep.

WO/2016/009452 ADJUSTMENT MECHANISM FOR GRADING SYSTEMS||WO||21.01.2016|
||PCT/IS2015/050013||STYLE EHF. ||RAGNARSSON, Egill Thor |
The present invention relates to an apparatus and a method for grading sensitive products. The apparatus and a method treat the objects to be graded gently and is accurate and may be constructed so as to handle extremely large quantities. The grading device of the present invention has grading channels that are wider at the outlet than at the intake. The belt machine draws the objects forward between two inclined belts (3) which form the channel. An adjusting device (9) is implemented perpendicular underneath the belts (3) of the apparatus comprising alternatively arranged support members (10) and adjusting members (12) arranged on an adjusting screwing shaft (11). Both components (10, 12) comprise screwing sections (14, 21) which regulates an increase or a decrease in the gap between the support members (10) when the adjusting screwing shaft (11) is rotated.
WO/2016/006004 PRODUCTION AND USE OF DEWATERED ICE-SLURRY||WO||14.01.2016|
||PCT/IS2015/000001||VIGLUNDSSON, Thorsteinn, Ingi||VIGLUNDSSON, Thorsteinn, Ingi|
An apparatus and method is described that makes dewatered ice-slurry and concentrated solutes in the drained liquid by separating ice and liquid in a controlled and continuous manner. The apparatus and method described further delivers the dewatered ice-slurry as produced onto the surface and into the cavities of perishable products, such as animal carcasses, where it adheres and melts slowly, thereby resulting in rapid cooling and in case food products, leading to improved quality and shelf life of the food.
WO/2015/189864 APPARATUS FOR COOKING AND DRYING ORGANIC MATERIAL||WO||17.12.2015|
||PCT/IS2015/050011||HEDINN HF. ||PALSSON, Gunnar |
Device and method to assemble such a device for both cooking and drying organic material in the process of making meal. The device has a large area for heat exchange and scrapers which stir the material in the container rather than transferring it around in circles. The method of assembling the device allows an accurate and convenient assembly so that the scrapers thoroughly scrape all inner surfaces of the device.

||PCT/IS2015/050012||HÁSKÓLI ÍSLANDS ||SKULASON, Egill |
A process and system for electrolytic production ammonia. The process comprises feeding gaseous nitrogen to an electrolytic cell, where it comes in contact with a cathode electrode surface, wherein said surface has a catalyst surface comprising a nitride catalyst, said electrolytic cell comprising a proton donor,and running a current through said electrolytic cell, whereby nitrogen reacts with protons to form ammonia. The process and system of the invention uses an electrochemical cell with a cathode surface having a catalytic surface which is preferably charged with one or more of Vanadium nitride, Chromium nitride,Zirconium nitride, Niobium nitride, Iron nitride or Osmium nitride.

||PCT/IS2015/050010||JONSSON, Sigurdur ||JONSSON, Sigurdur |
An animal learning and exercise device is provided that stimulates and trains skills of animals such as cats and dogs. The device allows placement of an object and subsequent search and retrieval of the object by the animal. The device has a plurality of pockets (1) providing the animal varying difficulty of retrieving the object. A preferred embodiment is in the form of a sheet (2) made from a first material sheet and pockets are made from pieces of a second material sheet attached to the lower side of the first sheet and openings (3) to the pockets are provided as rifts on the first sheet. The sheet can be wrapped and tied in a knot to hide from view one or more pockets.
