  • Publication number: 20080166253
    Abstract: An oilless screw compressor incorporating water-cooled cooling units for cooling compressed air discharged from compressor bodies having a pair of male and female screw rotors which can be rotated in a contactless and oilless manner, the cooling units comprising a plate type heat-exchanger, and the amount of cooling water for the plate type heat-exchanger being adjustable. With this configuration, a difference between a temperature during load operation and a temperature upon automatic stopping and during unload operation of the compressor can be reduced, so that the cooling unit can be restrained from being damaged or broken within a short period, thereby it is possible to provide a highly reliable oilless screw compressor.

  • Patent number: 4983919
    Abstract: An apparatus for detecting frequency response of audio signals of left and right channels. The audio signals of the left and right channels are alternately introduced at a predetermined periodic rate with intervals of a predetermined duration between times of signal introduction, the introduced audio signals are detected after being divided into a plurality of frequency band signals by band-pass filters, and one of the detected outputs is in turn relayed selectively. During the above described intervals of predetermined duration, an output end of detection device is grounded and the gain of the band-pass filters are made substantially equal to zero in synchronism with the timing of the grounding.
