Upon replacement of a cartridge, the two portions mate and are operative as a foam pump generator. The liquid portion of the foam pump is received within a liquid chamber by gravity, and is subsequently driven from that chamber by air from the air compressor, which drives both the air and liquid through a foam generating member, such as a sponge or mesh. This foam generating member is a part of the liquid portion of the pump, and is replaced with the cartridge." The patent application was filed on Feb. 8, 2008 (12/069,321).

*** RTC Industries Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 26 -- RTC Industries, Rolling Meadows, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8,312,999) developed by Stephen Hardy, Wadsworth, Ohio, for a "product management display system with trackless pusher mechanism." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A product management display system for merchandising product on a shelf includes using a trackless pusher mechanism that travels along a surface on which product is placed. The pusher mechanism of the invention also includes a pusher paddle and a floor that extends forward of the pusher paddle. A flat coiled spring or other biasing element may be operatively connected behind the pusher paddle and extend across the floor of the pusher mechanism and to the front of the shelf. In use, the product to be merchandised may be placed on the coiled spring and on the floor of the pusher mechanism. With this configuration, the pusher paddle is prevented from tipping or bending backwards during operation. In an alternative aspect, a mounting member may be used to mount the end of the coiled spring to the floor of the system. For those systems that include spaced-apart glide rails that are joined together by connecting ribs, or that use wire shelves, the mounting member may be snap-fit to or otherwise mounted on the floor and between the glide rails or shelf wires. The invention may be used with the merchandising of product on horizontal or non-inclined shelves or surfaces, as well as with gravity-fed systems, or systems that use gravity as a mechanism to urge product toward the front of the shelf." The patent application was filed on June 8, 2007 (11/760,196).

*** GOJO Industries Assigned Patent for Pull Actuated Foam Pump ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 26 -- GOJO Industries, Akron, Ohio, has been assigned a patent (8,313,008) developed by Nick E. Ciavarella, Seven Hills, Ohio, and David D. Hayes, Wooster, Ohio, for a "pull actuated foam pump." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A foam dispenser includes a refill unit and a dispenser housing. The refill unit carries foamable liquid and provides a liquid pump portion actuated to advance foamable liquid through the dispenser. The dispenser housing provides an air pump portion actuated to advance air through the dispenser. The air pump portion communicates with the liquid pump portion when the refill unit is properly placed in the housing. The liquid pump portion includes a piston housing that reciprocally receives a piston assembly to define a collapsible liquid chamber. Similarly, the air pump portion includes a piston housing that reciprocally receives a piston assembly to define a collapsible air chamber. Upon actuation of the dispenser, both the liquid chamber and the air chamber collapse and thereby feed air and liquid to an extrusion chamber, and extrude the mixture of air and liquid therein through a premix chamber and at least one mesh screen. The pump is actuated my pulling the piston assembly away from the piston housing, and this is particularly advantageous in the art of wall-mounted dispensers employing push bars typically moved horizontally toward a foam pump to actuate the same."
