  • Assignee:
    Whirlpool Patents Co. - St. Joseph MI
  • International Classification:
    D06B 1300
  • US Classification:
    8142, 81492, 8158
  • Abstract:
    Methods and apparatuses for washing fabric loads without water or using water only as a co-solvent are disclosed. One method of non-aqueous clothes washing includes the steps of disposing clothing in a wash container, delivering a wash liquor to the fabric load, the wash liquor comprising a substantially non-reactive, non-aqueous, non-oleophilic, apolar working fluid and at least one washing additive, applying mechanical energy to the clothing and wash liquor for a sufficient amount of time to provide fabric cleaning and, thereafter, substantially removing the wash liquor from the fabric load. The working fluid may be selected from the group consisting of perfluorocarbons, hydrofluoroethers, fluoronated hydrocarbons and fluoroinerts.

  • Assignee:
    Motorola, Inc. - Schaumburg IL
  • International Classification:
    H02J 700
  • US Classification:
    320101, 320150, 136205
  • Abstract:
    Battery life and cooling are improved in an electronic device. A thermoelectric module and phase change material module are placed near a heat source in an electronic device. The thermoelectric module and phase change material module insulate a surface to be cooled on the electronic device. The thermoelectric module generates an electrical current in response to a temperature differential at opposite surfaces on the thermoelectric module. The phase change material module enhances or limits the temperature differential seen at the thermoelectric module. The electrical current generated by the thermoelectric module is used to charge a battery of the electronic device.
