Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 244: Aeronautics And Astronautics

Machines or structures adapted to be: completely or partially sustained by the air (e.g., winged aircraft, helicopters, parachutes, kites, balloons, etc.); propelled and guided or stabilized through the air (e.g., projectiles with fins, guided missiles, etc.); placed in an orbit or which substantially operate outside the earth"s atmosphere (e.g., satellites, space vehicles, etc.); or subcombinations of these machines or structures.

Subclass 204: By controlling boundary layer
Subclass 207: With blowing
Subclass 208: And suction
Subclass 130: Aerodynamic resistance reducing

Class 415: Rotary Kinetic Fluid Motors Or Pumps

This is the class for apparatus, and corresponding methods of operating such apparatus, comprising a runner, and in which a working fluid is guided to, around, or from, the runner. A means for guiding or confining, the working fluid must be present. This class includes typically turbines, wind and water wheels, centrifugal pumps and blowers; and such casings, conduits, guide means and other elements peculiar to the subject matter of this class not otherwise classifiable.


Class 290: Prime-Mover Dynamo Plants

Production and transmission of electric power and does not include any specific use to which the power is put.

Subclass 55: Wind

Class 416: Fluid Reaction Surfaces (I.E., Impellers)

This class provides the locus for all fluid impellers not elsewhere classifiable. The working fluid, which is acted on by or acts upon the impeller, may be a liquid or gas.

Subclass 39: Temperature or icing condition responsive
Subclass 91: Both inlet and outlet to working fluid
