  • Patent number: 7237571
    Abstract: A pulsating vibration air generation apparatus capable of sharply and quickly controlling air flow in turning on and off operation, thereby generating a pulsating vibration air with sharp and hardly attenuated peak and valley, and capable of operation without occurrence of so much mechanical vibration. The pulsating vibration air generation apparatus is comprised of a main body having a tubular hollow space R2 with which two air communication ports are associated, and a rotary body situated for rotation in the tubular hollow space R2 and which has a peripheral side surface S4c so as to slide on the inner surface S2c forming the tubular hollow space R2.

  • Patent number: 6464737
    Abstract: A production method and system for granulating powdered material wherein powdered material is fluidized by applying heated pulsating vibration air, and the fluidized powdered material is suspended up and down at a regular cycle by means of heated pulsating vibration air, the aggregated material is compressed by further vibration of pulsating vibration air, whereby the aggregated powdered material is efficiently made into granulated material with high density and rather small specific volume without causing projection on the surface and without being made porous. The production system is comprised of a granulation tank for storing powdered material to be granulated, the granulation tank having a supply port for introducing heated air at the bottom thereof, a discharge port for discharging the introduced heated air at the top thereof, and a fluidization bed provided above the supply port for receiving the powdered material.
