  • Patent number: 10443153
    Abstract: The invention relates to molded cellulose bodies, in particular fibers, filaments, directly spun nonwovens, films, or foams which have flame-resistant properties. The fibers and filaments can be further processed as textiles into yarns, wovens, knitted fabrics, and nonwovens. The molded bodies are produced from solutions of cellulose and melamine cyanurate or cellulose and crosslinked or partially crosslinked melamine resin particles in an organic solvent. The melamine cyanurate or the melamine resin particles provide the molded cellulose bodies with flame-retardant properties. The molded cellulose bodies made of cellulose and melamine cyanurate or melamine resin particles can further contain flame retardants, in particular flame retardants which act synergistically, in a particulate form. The obtained textile fibers and nonwoven materials have a soft touch and can be processed or finished as filaments or yarns on conventional textile machines.

  • Patent number: 10398390
    Abstract: A tomography system with a beam source and a detector that is adapted to carry out a scan. While the beam source is guided along a circular or helical first trajectory about an orbital axis, a rectangular sensor surface of the detector is guided at a distance from the beam source along a circular or helical second trajectory about the orbital axis. During the scan, a yaw angle between a perpendicular bisector of the sensor surface and the plane of rotation in which the beam source is currently located has a value of greater than 0° and simultaneously smaller than 90°.

  • Publication number: 20190211282
    Abstract: A process and a plant are specified, with which free fatty acids can be obtained in a simple manner by hydrolysis of fatty acid alkyl esters, especially fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), or alternatively of fatty acid triglycerides present in oils and fats of vegetable and animal origin. According to the invention, a portion of the free fatty acids already produced is recycled back into the reaction mixture, which results in self-acceleration of the hydrolysis reaction.

  • Publication number: 20160040558
    Abstract: A thermal power plant has a primary heat supply, a steam generator, a steam turbine and an auxiliary gas turbine, wherein the primary heat supply is fluidically connected to the steam generator, wherein the auxiliary gas turbine is fluidically connected to the steam generator and is set up to keep the steam generator at a predefined minimum temperature when the primary heat supply is off-line, wherein a fan is encompassed, which fan is fluidically connected to the steam generator. A method is for the variable-power operation of such a thermal power plant, wherein the auxiliary gas turbine is brought on-line in dependence on an operating state of the primary heat supply, which is defined by the power to be provided by the latter.

  • Patent number: 7137413
    Abstract: An arrangement to increase the thermal fatigue resistance of glass tubes having fluid flowing therethrough and being pressure-loaded. This arrangement comprises a glass tube, into which an interior component is inserted. The interior component can be designed as thin-walled tube or tubular component. In accordance with a first example the cavity enclosed by the interior component is hydraulically connected with the interior of the glass tube. The wall thickness of the interior component is smaller than the wall thickness of the glass tube and the interior component is partially free from a direct heat connection with the glass tube. In accordance with a second example the interior component increases the wall thickness of the glass tube. In this case the interior component is touching the interior circumference of the glass tube.

  • Publication number: 20030221734
    Abstract: The invention relates to an arrangement (2; 2.2; 2.6; 2.7) to increase the thermal fatigue resistance of glass tubes (1; 1.2; 1.6; 1.7) flown through by fluid and pressure-loaded. This arrangement comprises a glass tube (1; 1.2; 1.6; 1.7), into which an interior component (3; 3.2; 3.6; 3.7) is inserted. The interior component (3; 3.2; 3.6; 3.7) can be designed as thin-walled tube (19; 19.2) or tubular component. In accordance with a first design example the cavity enclosed by the interior component (3; 3.2) is hydraulically connected with the interior (10) of the glass tube (1; 1.2). The wall thickness (s3) of the interior component (3; 3.2) is smaller than the wall thickness of the glass tube (1; 1.2) and the interior component (3; 3.2) is in the condition of being flown through by fluid at least partially free from a direct heat connection with the glass tube (1; 1.2). In accordance with a second design example the interior component (3.6; 3.7) increases the wall thickness of the glass tube (1.6; 1.7).
