  • Patent number: 4699667
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and apparatus for removing residual polychlorinated biphenyls from transformers. A vaporized solvent which forms a low-boiling azeotrope with polychlorinated biphenyls is passed through the transformer. The vaporized azeotrope is removed from the transformer, condensed, and the PCB's in the azeotrope are removed and/or destroyed. The apparatus includes means for vaporizing the solvent which forms the low-boiling azeotrope with the PCB's, a pump means for passing the vaporized solvent through the transformer, a condensing means for condensing the vaporized azeotrope, and treatment means for destroying the polychlorinated biphenyls removed from the transformer in the azeotrope.

  • Patent number: 4250251
    Abstract: Ballasted primary and secondary 3'-sulfamoyl-1-hydroxy-2-naphthanilide couplers are disclosed as well as compositions and photographic elements containing these couplers in coupler solvent particles. The coupler solvent particles are comprised of a combination of a coupler solvent and the coupler capable of permitting the formation of a microcrystalline dye. Surprisingly these microcrystalline dyes exhibit a broadened absorption characteristic in the 750 to 850 nm region of the spectrum. Dye images having such absorption characteristics are particularly suited to forming integral infrared absorbing sound tracks in photographic elements, such as motion picture projection films.

  • Patent number: 4124834
    Abstract: Electrical inductive apparatus having a tank, an insulating and cooling liquid in the tank, and an electrical winding structure immersed in the liquid. The insulating liquid includes an inorganic constituent in its formulation. The insulating liquid also includes a toxic organic contaminant which continuously leaches into the insulating liquid from the electrical winding structure. An adsorbent material is in fluid flow communication with the insulating liquid to remove the contaminant on a continuous basis by contact adsorption, to maintain the degree of contamination of the insulating liquid below a predetermined level.

  • Patent number: 3956130
    Abstract: An automatic filtering apparatus which provides an aliquot of filtrate of a particular quantity desired is provided. A solid-liquid mixture is introduced to a filter means under positive air pressure to provide the liquid filtrate. The filtrate flows into a receiving means defining the volume of the particular quantity desired. Excess filtrate flows into an overflow reservoir and out a waste line connected thereto. The filtrate in the receiving means can be transferred into a delivery means. Advantageously, a three-way stop-cock is disposed between the filter receiving means and delivery means and the flow paths are determined by the position of the stop-cock.
