  • Publication number: 20210370222
    Abstract: To provide a hydrogen gas supply device with which pressure resistance of a filter that catches sulfur components contained in a hydrogen gas is improved. A hydrogen gas supply device for a hydrogen station includes a compression portion that compresses a hydrogen gas by reciprocating motion of a piston, in which a piston ring containing sulfur components is mounted on the piston, a filter arranged on the downstream side of the compression portion, the filter that catches sulfur components contained in the hydrogen gas, and a first pipe connecting the compression portion and the filter. The filter includes an element portion having activated carbon onto which the sulfur components contained in the hydrogen gas are absorbable, and a steel housing portion that houses the element portion, in which a gas introduction passage that communicates with the first pipe and guides the hydrogen gas to the element portion is formed.

  • Publication number: 20210215052
    Abstract: A turbine impeller includes: a base material which contains aluminum as a main element; and an anti-erosion coating which covers a surface of the base material. Accordingly, since liquid droplets hit the anti-erosion coating before the base material even when the liquid droplets flow into the rotating turbine impeller, the damage to the base material due to erosion is suppressed.

  • Patent number: 9223584
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus compares a first device model information of the information processing apparatus with second device model information stored in a nonvolatile memory unit being externally connected to the information processing apparatus, and compares first device identification information of the information processing apparatus with second device identification information stored into the nonvolatile memory unit based on detection of a boot-up. When the device model information comparison process is determined to be identical and when the device identification information comparison process is determined to be non-identical, the information processing apparatus reads out second BIOS setup value stored in the nonvolatile memory unit and replaces with the first BIOS setup value stored in the BIOS information memory unit.
