  • Publication number: 20210128408
    Abstract: A container for holding at least one pharmaceutical composition includes a body that includes a marking element at a location that allows identification of the container. A stress parameter of the body has a value less than or equal to a threshold value at the location. The threshold value is derived and/or derivable from a simulation result of a simulation based on a finite element method of the stress parameter for a surface area and/or a volume area of the body with or without the marking element present. A mean value is obtained or is obtainable by the simulation for the stress parameter for at least a part of the surface area and/or the volume area. The threshold value is the sum of the mean value and 1000% or less of an absolute value of the mean value.

  • Patent number: 7056485
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a continuous hydrogenation process in which a hydrogenable compound is dissolved in a working solution with hydrogen and a heterogeneous catalyst. At least part of the hydrogen-containing waste hydrogenation gas generated in the reaction is compressed and then recycled into the hydrogenation reactor. A jet pump is used for the compression of the waste hydrogenation gas and a liquid or gaseous feedstock of the hydrogenation process is used as the motive agent. Preferred motive agents are the hydrogenation gas or a working solution recycled into the process. The process is particularly suitable for performing the hydrogenation step in the anthraquinone process for the production of hydrogen peroxide.

  • Patent number: 6982072
    Abstract: The anthraquinone process for producing hydrogen peroxide, including a hydrogenation step, an oxidation step and an extraction step. The oxidation waste gas leaving the oxidation reactor at an excess pressure is passed as a propellant jet to one or more gas jets and whereby a vacuum is produced for auxiliary processes, such as drying of the working solution, distillation of the aqueous hydrogen peroxide solution and drawing off of ventilator gases from solvent storage tanks.

  • Patent number: 6861042
    Abstract: A continuous catalytic hydrogenation process, in which a reaction mixture containing the substance to be hydrogenated, the hydrogenation product, hydrogen and the hydrogenation catalyst suspended in the reaction mixture is recirculated in a reactor. Part of the hydrogenation product is removed from the reactor and the substance to be hydrogenated and hydrogen are fed into the reaction. In this process the substance to be hydrogenated and the hydrogen are mixed before entering the reactor. A venturi nozzle is particularly suitable as the mixing device.

  • Patent number: 6164806
    Abstract: A lighting device has a sealed interior, which communicates with the environment via an upper vent opening and another lower vent opening. The upper vent opening is covered with a mat-like insert, which is air-permeable and water-repellant. The upper vent opening is formed in a wall that points downward. To protect the upper vent opening against splashing water, a shielding device is provided. Communicating with the lower vent opening is a line that discharges on the underside of the vehicle. When the vehicle is in motion, a pressure difference is developed between the upper vent opening and the lower vent opening, so that there is a flow through the interior from top to bottom. The insert prevents dirt and water from the road from entering the interior.
