  • Publication number: 20060133983
    Abstract: The invention relates to a continuous process for producing chlorine dioxide comprising the steps of continuously: a) feeding to a reactor (1) an acid, hydrogen peroxide and alkali metal chlorate; b) reacting the alkali metal chlorate with the acid and the hydrogen peroxide to form a product stream (2) containing chlorine dioxide, oxygen and alkali metal salt of the acid, c) bringing the product stream from the reactor to an eductor (3) and mixing it with motive water fed to the eductor and thereby forming a diluted product stream; d) removing oxygen from the diluted product stream; e) withdrawing part of the diluted product stream (9), before, during or after the step of removing oxygen; f) adding water (11) to the non-withdrawn part of the diluted product stream to form a recycle stream (12); and, g) bringing the recycle stream (12) to the eductor and feeding it thereto as motive water (4).

  • Publication number: 20060002285
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a limited play optical storage medium for data can comprises a first substrate, a reflective layer, a data layer, a second substrate, and a reactive layer. The second substrate is a read-through substrate and is capable of transmitting less than about 10% of light in a wavelength in the range of about 455 nanometers and about 620 nanometers. The reactive layer can comprise a carrier and a reactive material. The reactive material can be capable of undergoing a reaction such that after the reaction a percent reflectivity through the reactive layer is reduced.

  • Publication number: 20050242317
    Abstract: An isolation damper capable of forming an airtight or zero-leakage seal. The damper includes an annular frame or frame and a flexible seal member that extends around an inner surface of the frame. The seal member is at least partially embedded or integrated into the frame and includes an exposed surface. The seal member can be a single or multi-component seal member. A rotatable shaft extends across the interior annular aperture of the annular frame, and a blade is coupled to the shaft. The blade that is attached to the shaft is rotatable between closed and open positions. An outer circumferential edge of the blade engages the exposed surface of the seal member when the blade is rotated to a closed position thereby forming an air tight seal.

  • Patent number: 6790501
    Abstract: Limited-play optical medium with improved shelf stability are formed from a plurality of layers, including in sequence: (a) a first substrate layer; (b) a data layer; (c) a reflective layer; (d) a reactive layer comprising a dye having a reduced state and an oxidized state and further comprising an oxidized form of a reducing agent effective to convert the dye from the oxidized state to the reduced state, and (e) a second substrate layer. The dye in the reduced state is substantially transparent to light of wavelengths used to read the optical medium, and the dye in the oxidized state absorbs light of wavelengths used to read the optical medium. The reflective metal layer is formed from a metal or metal alloy that is not significantly oxidized by the oxidized form of the reducing agent. For example, the reflective metal layer is suitably formed from silver or gold.

  • Patent number: 6746566
    Abstract: A voltage-isolating passageway for providing high voltage isolation between a component maintained at high DC voltage and a component maintained at a substantially lower voltage is described. The voltage-isolating passageway incorporates a transverse magnetic field across its passageway, which reduces the potential energy of charged particles (e.g., electrons) passing through the passageway. The reduction in electron potential energy reduces the energy of collisions between electrons and molecules and therefore reducing the likelihood of avalanche ionization. The voltage-isolating passageway includes a passageway and at least two magnets. The passageway has two openings and the two magnets are positioned along opposite and exterior surfaces of the passageway wherein the first and second magnets impose a magnetic field in a transverse direction with respect to a lengthwise axis of the passageway.

  • Patent number: 6446924
    Abstract: A new and improved apparatus for supporting a dial test indicator in a tooling machine comprising at least a pair of pivoting arms that are pivotally attached to a pair of pivoting ends which permit the arms to be positioned parallel to one another and operate in unison motion. This configuration allows the dial test indicator support to maintain constant latitude throughout a full of range of motion during adjustment thereof, resulting in an indicator support that can quickly assist in the acquisition of precise, accurate measurement of the workpiece. Further, the dial test indicator support requires no active adjustment of fastening screws and the alike during repositioning of the arms for progressive measurement of the workpiece.
