||PCT/NZ2014/050008||WINDSOR ENGINEERING GROUP LIMITED||RAUDSEPP, William|
A single-pass solid wood heating and/or drying kiln for heating and/or drying a charge of solid wood, the kiln comprising: a chamber comprising a pathway along which the charge can be moved through the chamber; the chamber further comprising a central drying area, a pre-heating area at a first end of the chamber and a conditioning area at a second end of the chamber, wherein the central drying area is in fluid communication with the pre-heating and conditioning areas via a fluid flow path, the chamber being arranged such that thermal energy is recovered from the central drying area and redistributed to the pre-heating and/or conditioning areas.
WO/2015/093984 WATER SPORTS DEVICE AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000247||HOWARD-WILLIS, Guy||HOWARD-WILLIS, Guy|
Described herein is a leisure device, in the form of a hydrofoil bike, for use in water sports and a method of using same. The preferred embodiment of the hydrofoil bike includes combines several novel and inventive features including a means of linking the front and rear frames of the bike, a propeller assembly, a tiller, and a means of adjusting at least one of the foils of the bike when in use. However, these features may, in some embodiments of the hydrofoil bike, be independent of each other. These features make the hydrofoil bike relatively easy to assemble and use.

||PCT/NZ2014/050023||LIVESTOCK IMPROVEMENT CORPORATION LIMITED||SPELMAN, Richard John|
The present invention relates to methods of determining whether or not an animal carries alteration or variation in the OBFCl gene, being a biological marker linked to offspring mortality, and particularly, but not exclusively, to methods for selecting or rejecting animals, one or more cells or embryos, animal evaluation, breeding animals, and herd formation, using this marker.
WO/2015/093987 A CRYOSTAT FOR SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/050022||VICTORIA LINK LIMITED||STAINES, Michael Philip|
A cryostat for a superconducting device comprises a tank insulated with a non-vacuum material which may be a foam insulation material, and one or more cavities extending through the tank, through HTS coils for example which are vacuum insulated by for example concentric glass sleeves, through which cores, external to the cryostat, associated with the coils pass.
WO/2015/093989 HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM CONNECTIONS||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/050024||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||OSBORNE, Hamish|
A circuit connector for a humidification system, the system comprising a base unit configured to be engaged by a humidification chamber. The circuit connector comprises an inlet to fluidly connect to an outlet of the humidification chamber to receive humidified gases therefrom, an outlet to sealably connect to or integral with a conduit for directing the humidified gases to a user, and an electrical terminal for electrically coupling the circuit connector to an electrical terminal associated with the base unit. The circuit connector may be releasably and lockably connectable to the outlet of the humidification chamber and/or orientation features may control orientation of component parts of the system as they are assembled.
WO/2015/093985 LINE TRACKING APPARATUS||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000249||AMPHO R & D LIMITED||ORSBORN, Anthony Murray|
A line tracking apparatus is provided, comprising an optical head assembly configured to output optical information relating to a ground surface over which the line tracking apparatus is moved to at least one photoelectric sensor, which outputs a signal indicative of the presence of a pre-existing line marking on the ground surface. The signal is used to determine a position of the optical head assembly relative to an edge of the pre-existing line marking by comparison of the signal indicative of the presence of a pre-existing line marking with a calibration value. Operation of an actuator is controlled based on the determined position of the optical head assembly to adjust the transverse position of the optical head assembly in order to maintain its position relative to the edge of the pre-existing line.
WO/2015/093983 AN ASSEMBLY TO CONTROL OR GOVERN RELATIVE SPEED OF MOVEMENT BETWEEN PARTS||WO||25.06.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000245||EDDY CURRENT LIMITED PARTNERSHIP||DIEHL, Andrew Karl|
Described herein is an assembly and methods of use thereof for controlling or governing the relative speed of motion between the assembly parts via eddy current formation. The assembly and methods also may minimise the number of parts required and may minimise the number of moving parts thereby increasing the mechanical durability of the assembly compared to art designs that may have more moving parts and greater part complexity.
