||PCT/IE2015/000009||KEANE, Bernard Michael ||KEANE, Bernard Michael |
A heating system (1) comprises a heat exchange vessel (3) having a first heat exchange coil (9) and a second heat exchange coil (10) located therein. Primary heat exchange water is heated in either or both an oil fired boiler (12) and a back boiler (14) and is circulated between the respective boilers (12) and (14) on the one hand and the heat exchange vessel (3) on the other hand. Heated primary heat exchange water is delivered from the boilers (12,14) through first inlet ports (25) and returned to the boilers (12,14) through first outlet ports (26) substantially midway along the heat exchange vessel (3). A space heating heat exchange circuit (15) is supplied with primary heat exchange water from the heat exchange vessel (3) through a second outlet port (38) and a second inlet port (39). A solar panel (22) supplies heated secondary heat exchange water to the first heat exchange coil (9), while domestic hot water is supplied through the second heat exchange coil (10). A heat dump heat exchanger (24) cools the primary heat exchange water on the primary heat exchange water in the heat exchange vessel (3) exceeding a predefined upper temperature.
WO/2016/009417 A SADDLE TREE AND A METHOD FOR LIMITING UPWARD TRAVEL OF A SEAT FORMING ELEMENT RELATIVE TO A BACK ENGAGING ELEMENT OF THE SADDLE TREE||WO||21.01.2016|
||PCT/IE2015/000008||LAM TECHNOLOGIES LIMITED ||LACEY, William, Vincent |
A saddle tree comprising a back engaging element (3) for engaging and sitting on the back of an animal and a seat forming element (4) resiliency coupled to the back engaging element (3) adjacent the pommel (5) by a pair of resilient mounting members (8). A limit strap (17) is anchored to the back engaging element (3) and is adjustably coupled to the seat forming element (4) by a ratchet mechanism (20). The limit strap (17) terminates in a grippable element (32) which is releasably grippable by the ratchet mechanism (20). By urging the grippable element (32) in the direction of the arrow A through the ratchet mechanism (20), the limit of upward travel of the seat forming element (4) relative to the back engaging element (3) is reduced, thereby effectively hardening the saddle.

WO/2015/173791 A REAR LIGHT SYSTEM FOR A TOWABLE VEHICLE||WO||19.11.2015|
||PCT/IE2015/000006||SHANAHAN, Patrick Joseph ||BOROSZKO, Ariel|
A rear light system for a trailer (1) comprises a primary housing (5) which typically is located in a prime mover which tows the trailer (3), and a right-hand sub-housing (8) and a left-hand sub-housing (9) for mounting on a rear panel (10) of the trailer (3). The sub-housings (8,9) comprise first light sources (12a, 12b) to produce light signals indicative of the direction in which it is intended that the prime mover and trailer will turn, second light sources (14a, 14b) to produce light signals indicative of braking of the prime mover and the trailer, third light sources (17a, 17b) to form tail lights for the trailer, and fourth light sources (19a, 19b) for illuminating a number plate on the trailer (3). A primary controller (6) connected to the CAN bus (22) of the prime mover detects signals indicative of activation of the direction indicators, braking of the prime mover and activation of the tail lights of the prime mover, and transmits signals wirelessly by a wireless transmitter (24) in the primary housing (6) for reception by wireless receivers (40) in the respective right-hand and left-hand sub-housings (8,9). A secondary controller (39) reads signals received by the wireless receiver (40), and on detecting appropriate signals activates the appropriate ones of the first, second, third and fourth light sources (12a,12b,14a,14b,17a,17b,19a,19b).
WO/2015/170306 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ORIGINAL PARTS IDENTIFICATION, MAINTENANCE AND MONITORING||WO||12.11.2015|
||PCT/IE2015/000005||AUGHEY SCREENS LIMITED ||AUGHEY, Barry James |
A method, apparatus and system for original machine (spare) parts identification though the use of a unique original identification reference such as a barcode or RFID tag for each (spare) part whereby end users and dealers can be alerted as to whether a part is a genuine original part being used in the machine and in cases where it is, a due date for a part replacement, in real time and to a remote location.
WO/2015/166475 SOIL SCREENING APPARATUS AND A METHOD FOR SCREENING SOIL||WO||05.11.2015|
||PCT/IE2015/000004||DOYLE, Larry Thomas ||DOYLE, Larry Thomas |
Apparatus (1) for screening soil comprises a chassis (2) having an upwardly inclined conveyor (10) mounted therein. A forward soil engaging scraper plate (8) is coupled to and extends forwardly from an upstream end (11) of the conveyor (10) for engaging the soil beneath the surface for scraping the soil above the scraper plate (8) and transferring the scraped soil onto the conveyor (10) as the apparatus (1) is urged forwardly. The soil is conveyed to a downstream end (12) of the conveyor (10) and delivered to a first screen (30) which screens material of a first predefined size of 150mm and greater from the material and discharges the screened material into a storage container (32). Material of size less than the first predefined size passes through the first screen (30) to a second screen (35) which retains material of a second predefined size of 20mm and greater and passes material of less than the second predefined size of 20mm, for example, soil fines therethrough, which are deposited on the ground. The second screen (35) is configured to urge the material of the second predefined size of 20mm and greater towards a forward downstream end (37) of the second screen (35) which is deposited onto the ground in advance of the soil fines, so that the fines are deposited on the ground on top of the material of the second predefined size of 20mm and greater.
WO/2015/145413 A TRAILER||WO||01.10.2015|
||PCT/IE2015/000003||MCHALE ENGINEERING ||CARRIGAN, Thomas Anthony|
A trailer (1) for round bales of fodder material comprising a bed (19) and a pick-up mechanism (35) for transferring bales from the ground onto the bed (19). A lifting mechanism (38) adjacent the front end (10) of the bed (19) is provided with first and second receiving elements (39,40) for receiving four bales sequentially from the pick-up mechanism (35). The lifting mechanism (38) is urgeable by a main drive ram (60) from a first state adjacent the front end (10) of the bed (19) in a rearward direction for transferring four bales on the lifting mechanism (38) to an intermediate framework (26) of the bed (19). The next four bales on the lifting mechanism (38) urge the bales already on the intermediate framework (26) onto the rear framework (27) as those bales on the lifting mechanism (38) are being urged to the intermediate framework (26), and so on until the trailer has been loaded with sixteen bales. The rear framework (27) is pivotally coupled to the chassis (3) from a hauling state to a discharge state for discharging the bales onto the ground with the longitudinal central geometrical axis of the bales extending vertically.
WO/2015/136512 EXERCISE EQUIPMENT FOR THE PERFORMANCE OF HAMSTRING ECCENTRIC AND CONCENTRIC EXERCISES||WO||17.09.2015|
||PCT/IE2015/000001||DOHERTY, Noel ||DOHERTY, Noel |
The present invention is an inclined apparatus for undertaking exercises for hamstring eccentric and concentric loading and in particular, but not limited to, exercises such as the Nordic Hamstring Exercise, the Russian Hamstring Exercise and Russian curls. The apparatus can be utilised for sports training and preparation, injury recovery and rehabilitation and injury prevention. The main body of the device is so inclined as to ensure that the user does not hyper extend their knee and cause additional injury. The height of the higher end of the device above ground level in conjunction with the leg restraints means that the collateral injuries which may occur when undertaking this exercise regime in the traditional form of dorsiflexion and plantarflexion and indeed laterally in either direction are avoided.
