  • Patent number: 5011293
    Abstract: A device for the continuous production or the production on demand of a wr-in-oil emulsion from a water soluble chemical and an oil when mixed with an emulsifier. The device operates at relatively low pressures on the water and the oil lines. Water based chemical and the oil are each introduced into the cell through spray nozzles. The nozzles are positioned so as to cause the two sprays to intermix just prior to impinging on the wall of the cell. The action of the sprays and the force of impinging on the wall produces shearing action in the chemicals that helps in producing an emulsion. A long tube extends from the cylindrical cell. This tube contains a passive mixing element which causes the mixed chemicals to be further mixed and to undergo additional shearing action. The effect of the tube is to assure that the chemicals are held in a mixed state long enough for a stable emulsion to be formed.

  • Patent number: 4322394
    Abstract: Dielectric heating with microwaves of saturated solid noncarbon adsorbents to remove the adsorbed materials results in more rapid, efficient and safe regeneration than conventional heating. The microwaves heat the adsorbents internally and in the absence of spark discharges without thermal and mechanical degradation of the adsorbent, and also in the absence of activating gas bring the adsorbents to a temperature sufficient to desorb the adsorbate. Separation of a gas mixture into two concentrated streams of its components is enabled by adsorption of one fraction by a selective adsorbent followed by removal of that fraction with dielectric heating and little or no purge gas. Useful by-products of the separation process are thereby economically recovered.
