Wilbert L Gore, Robert W Gore, David W Gore: Desalination device and process. W L Gore & Associates, Finnegan Henderson Farabow Garrett & Dunner, October 8, 1985: US04545862 (69 worldwide citation)

A membrane distillation module is provided with a thin, flexible microporous membrane positioned against an impermeable condensor sheet that is stiffer in bending than the membrane. Distillate vapor diffuses through the membrane from the hot feed flowing rapidly past the membrane, and condenses and ...

David W Gore: Method for producing a free-form solid-phase object from a material in the liquid phase. Incre, Stoel Rives Boley Jones & Grey, November 2, 1993: US05257657 (56 worldwide citation)

A free-form, three-dimensional, solid-phase object (30) is produced from droplets (24) of liquid-phase material having appreciable surface tension and well-defined solidification properties. The liquid-phase material is ejected from an ejection head (20) in discrete droplets onto a substrate (98). T ...

David W Gore: Method and apparatus for producing a discrete droplet of high temperature liquid. Stoel Rives, January 28, 1997: US05598200 (26 worldwide citation)

A method and an apparatus (10) eject on demand a discrete droplet (12) of liquid at a high temperature along a predetermined trajectory (18) by transferring a physical impulse from a low temperature environment to a high temperature environment. The ejector apparatus includes a vessel (26) having an ...

David W Gore: Method for freeform fabrication by molten metal deposition. Incre L L C, Chernoff Vilhauer McClung & Stenzel, May 12, 1998: US05749408 (2 worldwide citation)

The height of a layer of material formed by molten metal disposition is measured by ejecting the material as elongate extrusions and measuring the time required for each extrusion to contact the workpiece, then using this time interval along with the speed at which the extrusion is ejected to measur ...
