  • Patent number: 10388812
    Abstract: A method of recycling a solar cell module includes an enclosing layer that encloses a solar cell therein, a light-receiving surface layer laminated on one surface of the enclosing layer, and a back sheet laminated on the other surface of the enclosing layer, the method including: a first removing step of mechanically removing the back sheet; a second removing step of mechanically removing from a side on which the back sheet is removed the entire solar cell and the enclosing layer to such a depth that a part of the enclosing layer having a predetermined thickness remains on the light-receiving surface layer, after the first removing step; and a third removing step of removing the part of the enclosing layer remaining on the light-receiving surface layer by immersion in a solution that causes swelling of the enclosing layer, after the second removing step, thereby improving an overall efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10084292
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a polarized vinylidene fluoride/tetrafluoroethylene copolymer resin film that can significantly reduce, when used as an optical film, the deterioration of the quality of video or still images formed by display elements. The present invention provides a polarized vinylidene fluoride/tetrafluoroethylene copolymer resin film having 2,000 or fewer spot defects per m2, the number of spot defects being measured by a defect measurement method; the method using an surface inspection system in which a CCD camera is placed so as to detect defects at an angle of 45 degrees relative to an LED source, defects of the film are read within a rectangular range of 300 mm in a width direction (the direction perpendicular to the scanning direction), and 150 mm in a machine direction (the scanning direction), while the film is scanned under the camera at a rate of 20 m/min; wherein first, defects having a bright area of 1.5 mm2 or less and a dark area of 1.

  • Patent number: 7107701
    Abstract: There are provided a substrate drying method and apparatus by which an attachment amount of particles to surfaces of substrates can be reduced when the substrates are exposed from pure water, and occurrence of non-uniform drying can be prevented by improving drying efficiency of the substrates. Air or an inert gas, and gaseous or droplet-like isopropyl alcohol (hereinafter, referred to as IPA) are supplied into a space on a liquid level of the pure water in a drying chamber, and pure water on a liquid level side is drained from the liquid level or the vicinity of the liquid level of the pure water, while raising the pure water in which the substrates are immersed together with the substrates, the substrates are exposed from the pure water above the liquid level in the drying chamber, and, at the same time, the pure water held on the exposed surfaces of the substrates is replaced by IPA, whereby the substrates are dried.

  • Patent number: 6435570
    Abstract: A resin pipe joint comprising a tapered flare portion (10a) formed on a pipe (10), an inclined portion (11a) formed internally of a joint body (11), an annular member (12) having inner peripheral surface fitted on the pipe (10) and the outer peripheral surface inserted in the joint body and formed at the end with a tapered chamfered portion (12a), and a pipe clamping member (13) threadedly fitted to the joint body (11). The pipe clamping member (13) being threadedly fitted to the joint body causes the chamfered portion (12a) of the annular member to pressure-contact the flare portion (10a) of the pipe and the flare portion of the pipe to pressure-contact the inclined portion in the interior of the joint body, whereby the clamping force can be concentrated on the flare portion of the pipe, so that a high sealing capability between the pipe and the joint body is obtained.

  • Patent number: 6219936
    Abstract: Nitrogen gas is jetted into a space on the liquid level of pure water in a drying chamber in which wafers are immersed. Simultaneously therewith, liquid-phase isopropyl alcohol is jetted at a temperature higher than the temperature of the wafers and in the vicinity of jetting openings for the nitrogen gas. When the wafers are exposed above the liquid level in the drying chamber, the pure water held on both front and rear surfaces of the wafers is replaced by the isopropyl alcohol of mist-form. The isopropyl alcohol is then evaporated, whereby the wafers are dried.
