Article written by Dana Zechar, Dayton Daily News

Engineering students from the University of Dayton are on the verge of being named on a patent with Hobart, a leading international commercial food equipment manufacturer and service provider based in Troy, Ohio.

Seven of UD’s Engineering students will be listed on a Hobart non-provisional patent filing for an innovation that assists in trapping heat in industrial dishwashers found in cafeterias and restaurants, according to UD.

The non-provisional patent filing will be published in early 2018 on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s website. After that, the innovation will be inspected over two to three years to determine if it “meets certain standards of inventiveness” for a patent, according to Hobart engineering manager Alexander Anim-Mensah.
