  • Patent number: 10576412
    Abstract: A gas treatment device uses a gas to be treated which contains an acid compound that dissolves into water to produce acid and a treatment liquid which absorbs the acid compound to phase-separate, to separate an acid compound from the gas to be treated. The gas treatment device includes an absorber which brings the gas to be treated into contact with the treatment liquid; a regenerator 14 which heats the treatment liquid contacting the gas to be treated to separate an acid compound; and a liquid feeding portion which feeds the treatment liquid contacting the gas to be treated in the absorber to the regenerator. In the absorber, the treatment liquid contacting the gas to be treated phase-separates into a first phase portion having a high acid compound content and a second phase portion having a low acid compound content. The liquid feeding portion is configured to introduce, into the regenerator, the treatment liquid with the phase-separated first phase portion and second phase portion mixed.

  • Patent number: 10454353
    Abstract: An apparatus for manufacturing an interior permanent magnet-type inner rotor and manufacturing method using the same. The apparatus including: a mold having a three-layer structure; the method including a shrink fitting step of heating a rotor core having slots; and a filling step of filling the rotor core slots in a residual heat state after the shrink fitting step with a flowable mixture of a binder resin heated to a flowable state and having anisotropic magnet particles, in oriented magnetic fields. This allows, in similar manufacturing steps, an inner rotor of which magnetic poles are anisotropic bond magnets formed by solidifying the flowable mixture in the slots and a conventional inner rotor of which the magnetic poles are sintered magnets. This allows both the inner rotors concurrently and in parallel (mixed flow production) in an already existing IPM motor manufacturing line.
