*** Florida Inventor Develops Patent for Controlled-clearance Sealing Compressor Devices ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- Thomas C. Edwards, Rockledge, Fla., has developed a patent (8,323,012) for a "controlled-clearance sealing compressor devices." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A controlled-clearance sealing compressor device that provides precision rotor centering directly with respect to the stator housing, vane centering with respect to rotor (not the stator) and the dynamic balance design of the gliders required for practical single and dual vane devices. The devices uses roller bearings to control the radial position of the vane and control rods or pins are used to control axial positioning of the vane, its `centralization` with respect to the rotor and the endplates. The positive displacement rotary vane compressors and vacuum pumps have friction reduction, efficiency enhancement and exceedingly long operating life as a result of the non-contact gas sealing of the process gas within the rotary vane compressors and vacuum pumps. In an embodiment the positive displacement compressing device is used in transportation vehicles." The patent application was filed on June 18, 2010 (12/818,628).

*** Florida Inventor Develops Patent for LED Accessory System ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- Israel Rosario, West Hollywood, Fla., has developed a patent (8,322,899) for an LED accessory system.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A base member has a top and a bottom with laterally spaced sides, a generally planar front face, and a generally planar rear face. A battery extends through a cylindrical hole through the base member. A lens cap is threadedly coupled to the rear face of the base member rearwardly of the hole to create a light chamber rearward of the base member. A battery switch is threadedly coupled to the base member. A printed circuit board with rearward facing LEDs is within the chamber. The LEDs are adapted to be turned on and off through the energizing and de-energizing of the battery by the switch." The patent application was filed on Nov. 20, 2009 (12/592,229).

*** Florida Inventor Develops Patent for Vessel Mounted Light ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 -- Marlin Brinson, Miami, has developed a patent (8,322,875) for a vessel mounted light.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A novelty light device that provides a light assembly capable of adhesion to the bottom of a cup, vase or bottle connected to a switch-able power supply by a thin electrical conductor. The thin electrical conductor enhances the stability of the bottle by minimally interfering with the configuration of the bottom of the bottle. A power supply is also provided that may be adhered to the side of the bottle. Variations in the switching means allow the device to be turned on once only or repeatedly selectable to on and off." The patent application was filed on Oct. 12, 2010 (12/902,956). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,322,875.PN.&OS=PN/8,322,875&RS=PN/8,322,875 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
