  • Patent number: 10921034
    Abstract: During a normal operation, a refrigeration cycle device is switched to a refrigerant circuit in which heat contained in a high-pressure refrigerant flowing out of an interior radiator is stored in a heat storage member. When frost is formed on an evaporator, the refrigeration cycle device is switched to another refrigerant circuit in which the exterior heat exchanger is heated and defrosted using heat stored in the heat storage member as a heat source. The heat storage member uses a material formed by adding W (tungsten) as an additive to VO2 (vanadium dioxide) which is a transition metal oxide having a property of a phase transition between a metal and an insulator. The heat storage member effectively stores or dissipates heat depending on a temperature zone of the refrigerant, thereby suppressing an increase in energy consumption of a compressor.

  • Patent number: 10890166
    Abstract: A non-pulsation pump is provided with: a cam mechanism that converts the rotational motion of a shared motor into reciprocal motion having a prescribed phase difference; a plurality of cross heads that make reciprocal motion with a prescribed phase difference through the cam mechanism; and a plurality of reciprocating pumps that are driven with a prescribed phase difference and that include plungers connected to the cross heads, wherein the total discharge flowrate toward a shared discharge pipe is kept constant. This non-pulsation pump includes a preliminary compression step for moving the plungers of the reciprocating pumps to a discharge side by very small amounts before a discharging step but after a suction step, and has a stroke adjustment mechanism for adjusting the effective stroke length of the plunger in the preliminary compression step. Thus, generation of pulsation can be suppressed even when the set pressure changes.
