*** Shop Vac Assigned Patent for Wall-mountable Vacuum Cleaner and Bracket Combination ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 26 -- Shop Vac, Williamsport, Pa., has been assigned a patent (8,312,591) developed by four co-inventors for a "wall-mountable vacuum cleaner and bracket combination." The co-inventors are Melvin E. Wolfe Jr., Kirkwood, N.Y., Kevin D. Fry, South Williamsport, Pa., Jason Gottschall, South Williamsport, Pa., and John Griffin, Phoenix.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A new wall-mountable vacuum cleaner and bracket combination provides easy locking. Both the vacuum cleaner and the bracket have mounting rims. When the vacuum cleaner is on the bracket, a support surface on a proximal end of one of the two mounting rims engages a terminal edge of the other of the two mounting rims. The vacuum cleaner can be secured in place by moving a movable arm from an extended position to a retracted position in which the vacuum cleaner is locked in place. To accommodate the required movement of the movable arm, the bracket has a deflectable locking edge that moves between a rest position and a deflected position. In the rest position, the distance between the locking edge and the terminal edge of the bracket mounting rim exceeds the distance between the terminal edge of the vacuum mounting rim and the base surface, but is less than the distance from the terminal edge of the vacuum mounting rim to the part of the vacuum cleaner that lies directly beneath the locking edge when the vacuum cleaner is stored on the bracket." The patent application was filed on July 14, 2011 (13/182,986).

*** Pelletron Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 26 -- Pelletron, Lancaster, Pa., has been assigned a patent (8,312,994) developed by Heinz Schneider, Lancaster, Pa., and Paul Wagner, Lancaster, Pa., for a "cylindrical dedusting apparatus for particulate material." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A cylindrical dedusting apparatus has an upper material infeed opening to introduce material into a frusto-conical infeed hopper centered over the tip of a conical wash deck supported over an air infeed conduit. Air is blown through slots and openings in the surface of the wash deck to separate dust and debris from the particulate material. The dust-laden air is discharged by passing between the infeed hopper and a cylindrical sleeve to enter into a circular collector for discharge from the apparatus. Flow rate of material over the wash deck is adjusted by vertically moving the infeed hopper within the sleeve relative to the wash deck, the tip serving as a stopper to define the dimension of the gap through which material flows onto the wash deck.
