||PCT/AU2016/050160||JETS INNOVATIONS PTY LTD||MONAGHAN, Tom|
As shown for example in figure (5), the strainer (13) has a body (2) that defines a plurality of inlet holes (3). Each of the inlet holes (3) is in fluid communication with a hollow internal chamber. In use, liquid is sucked through the holes (3), thereby straining out larger contaminants such as rocks and stones, into the hollow internal chamber and then out the outlet. The majority of the strainer (13), is formed from a resilient deformable material that allows opposed sides of the internal chamber to be brought into contact with each other in response to the application of a compressive force. Once the force is no longer being applied, the resilience of the material allows the body (2) to resiliently return to substantially its pre-deformation shape.

A loading and unloading machine for loading goods into, or unloading goods from, a container such as a standard shipping container. The loading and unloading machine has a goods conveyor extending into the container and configured to convey goods to or from the container, a transfer system located adjacent an end of the goods conveyor configured to manoeuvre goods from or to the loading machine into or from the container, respectively, and a height adjustment system configured to adjust the height of the transfer system to a desired height.

||PCT/AU2016/050230||EZIFIX MINING SOLUTIONS PTY LTD||ARIF, Maxwell Olgun|
A conveyor belt support system can include two idler roller supports/frames (10, 20). When a roller (11, 12, 13) in a first idler roller frame supporting the belt 50 needs changing, the first idler roller frame (10) rotates away from under the belt. The second idler roller frame (20) rotates to a supporting position replacing the first idler roller frame (10). The second idler roller frame (20) can support in the same position as the first idler roller frame vacated, or can support the belt at an adjacent position. The process can be reversed when the second roller idler frame (20) has a roller needing changing. Movement of the idler roller frames can be actuated by a hydraulic, electrical, mechanical or pneumatic actuator (70). One or more hydraulic rams/cylinders or electrical actuators, such as motors, can be used. The actuator (70) can fitted with a transponder which can send/receive signals through a wired connection or a wireless connection. The signals are communicated with a computer system.
WO/2016/149749 HIGH INDEX-CONTRAST PHOTONIC DEVICES AND APPLICATIONS THEREOF||WO||29.09.2016|
||PCT/AU2016/050201||RMIT UNIVERSITY||MITCHELL, Arnan|
A photonic processing module (100) comprises a high index-contrast waveguide device comprising a substrate (102), a first layer (104) disposed on the substrate having a first refractive index, and a relatively thin second layer (106) disposed on the first layer. The second layer has a second refractive index providing a high index-contrast with the first layer, and the device includes at least one thin-ridge waveguide element (108) formed in the second layer which supports a guided mode in a longitudinal direction. An optical input port (110) is configured to direct an input beam into a slab mode of the second layer, the beam being directed to propagate at a predetermined angle θ to the longitudinal direction of the thin-ridge waveguide element. The angle θ is associated with a resonant coupling between the slab mode of the second layer and the guided mode of the thin-ridge waveguide element. An output beam is thus generated when the input beam includes one or more optical components corresponding with the resonant coupling. An optical output port (112) is configured to receive the output beam.

The invention relates to a fibrous mesh and to processes for making same. The fibrous mesh has a static water contact angle of greater than about 150°. A water droplet of about 10mg can adhere to a horizontal underside of the fibrous mesh without detaching from it and transfer of such a droplet from the underside of the fibrous mesh to a second surface occurs such that essentially none of the water of tire droplet remains adhered to the fibrous mesh.
WO/2016/149737 VISION ASSISTANCE SYSTEM||WO||29.09.2016|
||PCT/AU2016/000100||MARKUS, Leonard||MARKUS, Leonard|
A vision assistance method implemented on a digital display device provides a test image for display to a user on a display of the graphical user interface of the device, and an adjustment interface, configured to be displayed adjacent to the test image on the display and enables the user to input visual adjustment settings to adjust the test image. The test image is then automatically adjusted by a processor of the device by applying the adjustment settings. A profile of the user is generated including the desired visual adjustment settings iteratively selected by the user. An input image is subsequently received and the processor then automatically adjusts the input image based upon visual adjustment data corresponding to the selected desired visual adjustment settings. The adjusted input image is then displayed on the display and to the user.
WO/2016/149743 METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR VENTILATORY TREATMENT OF RESPIRATORY DISORDERS||WO||29.09.2016|
||PCT/AU2016/050189||RESMED LIMITED||BASSIN, David John|
Methods and apparatus treat a respiratory disorder. For example, a pressure generator supplies a flow of air at positive pressure to a patient's airway through a patient interface. A sensor generates a signal representing respiratory flow rate of the patient. A controller controls the pressure generator to provide to the patient interface a ventilation therapy having a base pressure. The controller computes a measure of ventilation of the patient from the signal. The controller computes a measure of flow limitation from an inspiratory portion of the signal. The controller computes a ratio of the measure of ventilation and an expected normal ventilation. The controller adjusts a set point for the base pressure of the ventilation therapy based on the measure of flow limitation. The adjustment may further depend on a comparison between the ratio and a relative ventilation threshold that increases as the measure of flow limitation increases.
