  • Patent number: 4414103
    Abstract: A hydrocarbon material is subjected to severe hydrotreatment and washed with only enough water to absorb the bulk of the H.sub.2 S but only a fraction of the NH.sub.3 present in the hydrocarbon material. The washed hydrotreated hydrocarbon material is separated from the water stream, and then a vapor phase is separated from the hydrocarbon material in a high pressure separator. The vapor phase is scrubbed with water to form an aqueous solution of NH.sub.3 which contains only a minor amount of H.sub.2 S (an NH.sub.3 to H.sub.2 S ratio of at least 6:1).

  • Patent number: 4409959
    Abstract: A passive thermosiphon loop of circulating heat transport liquid transfers heat from an inclined absorber to a heat exchanger in thermal contact with a second fluid. Reverse thermosiphoning under normal conditions is prevented by a ball type check valve. Due to differences in the thermal expansion between the valve ball and the transport liquid, the valve will, however, permit reverse thermosiphoning at high temperatures.
