Inventors and Patents From the City of Northlake
In this article, we will look at a few of the inventions in Northlake. For example, we will see how Aerosol bombs were created and used with steam locomotives. We will also learn about the longest time between an invention being patented and it being granted.
Aerosol bomb inventions
Aerosol bombs, also known as thermobaric weapons, are explosions that produce a high-temperature cloud of liquid or solid particles. The most common type is a fuel-air explosive, which contains almost 100% fuel. They are extremely explosive, and can be launched from aircraft and hand-held launchers.
Aerosol bombs used with steam locomotives
Conventional steam locomotives have side rods and valve gear to create horizontal and vertical forces on the rails. These forces must be counterbalanced to achieve high efficiency, which is only possible at high speeds and high power outputs. The efficiency of some UK and Swedish locomotives was designed to be close to that of a piston engine, but the limitations of the technology prevented them from achieving such high levels. Gas turbine locomotives had similar problems, and were unable to reach peak efficiency unless they were exhausting into a near vacuum. They were also weighed down by heavy surface condensers.
One of the most dangerous problems associated with steam locomotives is the possibility of explosion. A lack of water in a hot boiler can cause a steam boiler to explode. However, this rarely occurs. The last known case of a boiler explosion was in East Germany in 1977. In that case, the engine was a Krupp 01 1516-2 locomotive that was rebuilt on short notice. The train had been a replacement for another locomotive that had been withdrawn from service due to an unexpected emergency. While steam locomotives rarely explode, they are still susceptible to misoverhauling and boiler rot.
Aerosol bomb inventions in Northlake
Inventors Sullivan and Goodhue were awarded a patent in 1943 for the first true aerosol bomb. Using liquified gas, the aerosol was released by spraying it into the air. This invention was the forerunner of many commercial spray products widely used today.
Aerosols come in many shapes and sizes and are often used for a wide range of purposes. The concept behind aerosols goes back much further, though. A bug bomb, for example, was invented in 1847 by Goodhue and Sullivan. They also developed the aerosol can, which was the first to feature a clog-free valve.
Longest time between a patent being filed and granted in Northlake
The time between filing a patent application and having it approved will depend on the complexity of the invention. For example, a medical device may require three years to be approved. However, a technical device may require only a few months. In addition, a technical invention is assigned to a certain group of examiners at the USPTO, making it more likely to be approved quickly.
The wait time between filing for a patent and getting it granted depends on many factors, including the complexity of the product and the queue of similar products. In 2012, the wait time was 21 months, with the average time being 32 months. However, if you have a new invention that is unlikely to be covered by existing patents, you may need to wait for several more years.
