  • Patent number: 10169279
    Abstract: An input/output control device is connected to an input/output switch which transfers a received input/output instruction to an input/output device whose local address is specified in the input/output instruction. The input/output control device includes a memory and circuitry. The memory stores specific information about a processor and a conversion table for converting a logical address of the input/output device into the local address, with the specific information and the conversion table each being associated with a device group that includes the processor and the input/output device. The circuitry identifies the device group based on the specific information about the processor of sender which information is obtained. The circuitry converts the logical address included in the input/output instruction into the local address which is obtained from the conversion table for the identified device group, and then sends the input/output instruction to the input/output switch.

  • Patent number: 10106288
    Abstract: Provided is a container whose shape for discharging contents is hardly expandable laterally, the container including a container body holding contents and a lid member for closing an opening of the container body which are sealed with each other by an annular seal portion formed along a flanged face of the opening. At a specified position of the annular seal portion, there is provided a detaching seal portion which is to be detached by an increase of inside pressure inside the container body in association with deformation of the container body based on an external force. An outflow channel for discharging the contents therethrough extends radially outwards from the detaching seal portion. At a position of the container body corresponding to the outflow channel of the flanged face, there is formed an outflow groove which is sunk toward a bottom portion of the container body.

  • Patent number: 10093471
    Abstract: Provided is a container that allows a portion where detachment starts to be fixed at a specified position in a more reliable manner, thus allowing contents to be discharged in a direction expected by a user, allowing eventually reduction in the amount of contents to remain in the container in the end. The container includes a container body holding contents therein and a lid member, the container body and the lid member being sealed by an annular seal portion formed along a flanged face of the opening. There is provided a detaching seal portion which is detached in response to increase of pressure inside the container body associated with deformation of the container body. The detaching seal portion includes a reverse-oriented annular seal portion which occupies a part of a width of the flanged face and which projects toward a radial inner side of the opening.

  • Patent number: 9982590
    Abstract: An internal-combustion-engine supercharger includes a centrifugal compressor, a pre-compression flow path, a post-compression flow path, a bypass passage, and a control valve. The centrifugal compressor is disposed in an intake passage of an internal combustion engine and has an impeller to compress and discharge intake air using a radial centrifugal force generated by rotating the impeller. The intake air in the post-compression flow path is to be recirculated to the pre-compression flow path via the bypass passage. A connecting portion between the bypass passage and the pre-compression flow path is disposed at a position other than an extreme-bottom surface portion located at a lowest portion in a flow path section of the pre-compression flow path in a state where the internal-combustion-engine supercharger is installed in a vehicle. The control valve is disposed in the bypass passage to control a recirculation flow rate of the intake air.

  • Publication number: 20180065838
    Abstract: A liquid dispenser includes: an accommodating portion to accommodate a stock solution container configured to provide an ejecting portion that protrudes from a bag-shaped containing portion containing a concentrated stock solution which is ejected from an ejection port of the ejecting portion as the containing portion deforms based on an external force; and a stock solution ejection mechanism to control ejection and stoppage of the concentrated stock solution from the stock solution container. The stock solution ejection mechanism includes: a first valve body opening/closing mechanism to open and close a first valve body arranged in a flow path from the containing portion to the ejecting portion; a second valve body opening/closing mechanism to open and close a second valve body arranged in a flow path from the ejecting portion to the ejection port; and a control mechanism for individually controlling the first and second valve body opening/closing mechanisms.

  • Patent number: 9902546
    Abstract: Provided is a container with which a width and a position of a lid member to be unsealed can be readily made constant, thus making it less likely for contents to be discharged too vigorously and making it easy to predict the discharging direction of the contents. A container body and a lid member of the container body are sealed to each other via an annular seal portion formed along a flanged face of the opening. At a specified position of the annular seal portion, there is provided a detaching seal portion which is to be detached in response to increase of an inside pressure of the container body associated with deformation of the container body based on an external force. At positions facing each other across the detaching seal portion, there are provided non-detaching seal portions comprised of a plurality of annular seal portions extending along a circumferential direction.

  • Patent number: 9902545
    Abstract: Provided is a portion container whose detaching seal portion can be easily detached by a stress applied from a radial inner side based on an inside pressure of a container body, but can be hardly detached by a stress applied from the outside during distribution. Provided also are a seal head for sealing such container and a container sealed with using such seal head. The seal head includes pressing end portions for pressing a lid member against a flange of an opening. At least a portion of the pressing end portions is formed as an uneven projecting portion having different curvature radii in its cross sectional contour between a radial inner portion and a radial outer portion of the opening.

  • Patent number: 9902544
    Abstract: A container is provided that includes a container body and a lid member, the container body and the lid member being sealed by an annular seal portion. There is provided a detaching seal portion which is detached in response to increase of pressure inside the container body associated with deformation of the container body. The annular seal portion is formed by a pressing operation of pressing the lid member against the flange via a seal bar having at its leading end an annular projection having a shape corresponding to the annular seal portion, a groove-like sunk portion corresponding to the annular projection being formed in the flange by the pressing operation. At least a portion of the sunk portion formed in the detaching seal portion comprises an uneven groove having a cross sectional shape with a smaller curvature radius on its radial inner side than its radial outer side.

  • Patent number: 9902547
    Abstract: Provided is a container with which its body can be deformed with a same external force until most of the contents has been discharged from the container body and to cause the final shape after the deformation to be a constant shape. Also provided is a container with which the contents discharged can be rendered constant, thus making it possible to obtain a diluted product having a constant concentration. The container includes a bottomed container body and a lid member, the container body and the lid member being sealed by an annular seal portion. There is provided a detaching seal portion which is detached in response to increase of pressure inside the container body associated with deformation of the container body. There is also provided a deformation controlling recess whose width is progressively reduced from a back face side of the flange toward the bottom face side.
