  • Patent number: 5094826
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for the denitrification and desulfurization of hot waste gases, particularly from furnaces. A crude gas flow is initially conducted through a denitrification plant and through the endothermic part of a heat-utilizing plant. Subsequently, the flow is conducted into a desulfurization plant. The purified gas flow discharged from the desulfurization plant is conducted through the exothermic part of the heat-utilizing plant and is subsequently transferred to ambient. By means of a cooling trap, a portion of the heat contained in the crude gas flow before the contact with the heat-utilizing plant is removed while precipitating sulfuric acid in the form of vapor, and this heat is then added to the purified gas flow before the contact thereof with the heat-utilizing plant.

  • Patent number: 5093053
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing multiple-layer molded articles with an outer skin of compact thermoplastic material and a core of foamed thermoplastic material includes initially introducing the material for the skin into a mold cavity in a quantity sufficient for the desired thickness of the skin and subsequently feeding into the mold cavity the material for the core to which the expanding agent has been added. During and/or after being introduced into the mold cavity, the core material containing expanding agent is temporarily subjected by means of an additional gas and/or a pressurized, low-boiling liquid to an active pressure which exceeds the gas pressure of the expanding agent. Subsequently, the additional gas or the low-boiling liquid is removed from the hollow space which is still free of skin material and core material.

  • Patent number: 5092186
    Abstract: A motion converter for small appliances driven by electric motors, such as electric toothbrushes, electric razors or the like, comprising a motor, tool bit and tool bit carrier, which is driven by the rotary motion of the motor and imparts a preferably orbital motion to the tool bit. The latter is accomplished by a novel mechanism for converting the rotary motion of the motor shaft into a generally transverse reciprocating motion. The mechanism employs a follower having a guide slot with parallel side faces and conically extending, radial outer contoured surfaces. The follower comprises a bore for the motor shaft or for a cam on the motor shaft and is slidingly mounted thereon.
