An oral irrigation device including a reservoir, a tip, and a pump. The pump is operative to draw fluid from the reservoir and propel the fluid to the tip. The pump includes a pump body fluidly connected to the reservoir and the tip, the pump body having an interior wall defining a pump chamber, the pump chamber terminating in an open end and a force exerting assembly that is receive within the pump chamber. The force exerting assembly is movable between a first position and a second position and includes a force exerting member and a compressible sealing member received around the force exerting member. The sealing member engages the interior wall of the pump body during movement from the first position to the second position and movement from the second position to the first position to prevent fluids from escaping the open end of the pump body.

A portable drinking water filter system, such as a pitcher, having a floatable body including a filter opening configured to receive a water filter, the floatable body having a seal extending outward from an outer surface of the floatable body. The floatable body is disposed in a container cavity such that a body seal engages the sidewall and restricts water from passing between the floatable body and the sidewall. The seal is configured to create friction with the sidewall, wherein the friction created when the floatable body rises in the container is different than when the floatable body lowers in the container. The friction created when the floatable body rises in the container is greater than when the floatable body lowers in the container, allowing the floatable body to auto-retract toward a cavity base without burping.

A method of recovering wood pulping chemicals from black liquor produced in a wood pulping process where the process entails burning the black liquor in a recovery boiler to form ash containing high levels of carbonate as well as sodium, potassium and chloride. The ash is dissolved to form a dissolved ash solution that is directed to a first stage crystallization unit that concentrates the dissolved ash solution and which results in the precipitation of sodium sulfate and sodium carbonate. Thereafter the concentrated dissolved ash solution is directed to a second stage crystallization unit which adiabatically cools the concentrated dissolved ash solution to form a glaserite slurry and a purge stream that is rich in chloride. In order to reduce the tendency of sodium carbonate and burkeite to crystallize in the second stage crystallization unit and to encourage pure glaserite to crystalize in the crystallizer, the method entails mixing a sulfate source, such as sodium sulfate or sulfuric acid, to the concentrated dissolved ash solution upstream of the crystallizer.

A handheld, therapeutic cleansing system includes a skin or body brush with a rotating bristle head and an associated water spray. The body brush includes a housing, a brush assembly connected to the housing, and a drive assembly for rotating the brush assembly. The brush assembly includes a plurality of bristles and is rotated by the drive assembly. The drive assembly may include a motor having a drive shaft, a worm gear coupled to the drive shaft of the motor and rotatable therewith, and at least one gear engaged with the worm gear and rotatable therewith. During operation, the at least one gear couples to the brush assembly and rotates the brush assembly as the worm gear rotates. Water spray is provided through a connection with a water supply and spray nozzles adjacent to the bristles.

A brushing device including a motor having an eccentric drive shaft, an output shaft operably connected to the motor, and a power train assembly coupled between the eccentric drive shaft and the output shaft. The power train converts rotation of the eccentric drive shaft into an oscillating movement of the output shaft. The power train includes one or more conservation features that absorb energy when the output shaft rotates in a first direction and reapply energy to the output shaft when it rotates in a second direction.

A process is described for recovering alkali-chloride and alkali-sulfate salts from a salt solution. The salt solution comprises alkali metal, chloride and sulfate ions and is directed to a hydrous salt crystallization unit which crystallizes hydrated sulfate salts that comprise sulfate and at least one alkali metal. A purged solution from the hydrous salt crystallization unit is directed to a chloride salt crystallization unit while the hydrated sulfate salt crystals are melted to form an aqueous sulfate solution which is directed to a sulfate crystallization unit. Anhydrous sulfate salts are crystallized from the aqueous sulfate solution to form sulfate salt crystals comprising sulfate and at least one alkali metal. In the chloride salt crystallization unit, chloride salt is crystallized to form chloride salt crystals. A purge from the chloride salt crystallization unit is directed to the hydrous salt crystallization unit.
