  • Patent number: 4698136
    Abstract: A process for the continuous production of boiler feed water from process waters in the oil extraction industry during which salts and hydrocarbons are removed from the water, without Fe.sup.++ precipitating. The heavy hydrocarbons are mechanically separated, the volatile hydrocarbons are separated from the water, by means of a thermal degassing, and the low boiling and the non-condensable hydrocarbons are separated in a shower evaporation step with downstream vapor compression, wherein the low boiling non-condensable hydrocarbons are evaporated with the waste water within the shower evaporator and the non-condensable hydrocarbons then are drawn off from a downstream separator. A salt-free oxygen-free pure water is removed from a separator.

  • Patent number: 4679205
    Abstract: In a tiltable metallurgical furnace vessel having a completely closed lateral protrusion with a closable discharge opening on its underside, simplified furnace structure is achieved by configuring the protrusion as a removable, heatable fore-hearth that is constructed in the form of a casting spout. A particularly simple structure results due to the fact that the fore-hearth is flanged to the main furnace vessel and essentially has a box shape. The invention is particularly useful for electric arc furnaces.

  • Patent number: 4608857
    Abstract: A method is provided for leak checking pipes or pipe networks wherein the leak check is effected by means of liquid under pressure in that a pressure change is determined. To improve the leak check by excluding temperature caused pressure changes, the liquid pressure in the pipes, pipe networks or pipe sections thereof is set to at least two different pressure levels as initial pressure for at least one respective pressure change determination. From the time standardized pressure changes associated with different initial pressures, a time standardized pressure change difference is formed and is compared with an allowed value with reference to the unit of time. A leak is determined to exist if the pressure change difference is greater than the allowed value.

  • Patent number: 4598667
    Abstract: A tube wall for a metallurgical furnace is mainly formed by an array of generally parallel tubes centered on respective tube axes and each having two widened open tube ends one of which projects laterally from the respective tube in one radial direction and the other of which projects laterally from the respective tube in the opposite radial direction. Each tube end laterally engages the tube end of an adjacent tube and the tubes are laterally spaced between their ends. Respective caps each cover two adjacent tube ends and interconnect same so that the interiors of the tubes and caps form a sinuous passage. Finally, respective welds secure the tube ends and caps together hermetically to seal off the passage. Thus appropriate means can circulate a coolant through the array. Such construction is sufficiently rigid to do away with webs laterally interconnecting the tube sections, thereby eliminating the cost of their manufacture and installation.

  • Patent number: 4480679
    Abstract: Chill molds for multiple continuous casting of wires and casting strands with small cross-sections from metal, in particular from copper and copper alloys, are provided with a row of mold hollow spaces with walls from graphite and the walls are cooled with a coolant circle. In order to have to replace upon wear out or operational disturbances only the parts involved and the exchange of the parts nevertheless to remain simple and the space requirements of the chill mold remain low, the chill mold is provided with building elements independent from each other, that is with cooling elements (1) and mold support elements (2), which are disposed alternately and touching each other in a row next to each other or on top of each other as desired. The mold support elements (2) containing the mold hollow spaces (10) are freely movable with respect to their neighboring cooling elements (1). Each mold support element (2) can be individually pressed against a stop face (18') opposite to the casting direction.
