  • Patent number: 10328465
    Abstract: A substrate processing apparatus removes foreign substances from a substrate at high removal efficiency. The substrate processing apparatus includes: a scrubber to perform surface processing of the substrate by bringing a scrubbing member into sliding contact with a first surface of the substrate, a hydrostatic support mechanism for supporting a second surface of the substrate via fluid pressure without contacting the substrate, the second surface being an opposite surface of the first surface, a cleaner to clean the processed substrate, and a dryer to dry the cleaned substrate. The scrubber brings the scrubbing member into sliding contact with the first surface while rotating the scrubbing member about a central axis of the scrubber.

  • Patent number: 10294838
    Abstract: An exhaust cleaning filter has an exhaust gas inflow passage and an exhaust gas outflow passage disposed in alternating fashion; and a porous partition wall for setting the exhaust gas inflow and outflow passages at a distance from each other. A small pore region is sectioned off on the upstream side and a large pore region is sectioned off on the downstream side of the partition wall. The average pore diameter of the partition wall in the large pore region is greater than in the small pore region, and is set so that ash contained in the exhaust gas is able to pass through the partition wall. The exhaust purification filter has a promoting member for promoting the passing of exhaust gas that has flowed into the exhaust gas inflow passage, through the partition wall in the small pore region, and promoting inflow into the exhaust gas outflow passage.

  • Patent number: 10183007
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition containing as its main component proanthocyanidin oligomer to which a substance having a phloroglucinol ring structure or resorcinol ring structure has been bonded and reduced in the molecular weight, which is obtained by heating plant materials containing proanthocyanidin polymer or extract thereof with a substance having a phloroglucinol ring structure or resorcinol ring structure in an acidic aqueous solution, production method thereof, and uses of the composition in health products and pharmaceutical products. According to the invention, proanthocyanidin oligomer having physiological activity, to which a substance having a phloroglucinol ring structure or resorcinol ring structure has been bonded and reduced in the molecular weight to such a level that the oligomer can be absorbed into living body, which has been conventionally difficult to obtain at high yield from plant raw materials, can be produced efficiently and easily.

  • Publication number: 20070109484
    Abstract: A drive element mount display is provided which achieves fine output pad pitches for a display panel driver without reducing the pitches of the connection terminals of display panel wires which connect to the display panel driver. In a liquid crystal driver mount display 1, liquid crystal display means 2 connects to a liquid crystal driver 3 via a driver socket 4a. On the driver socket 4a, the connnection terminals for the liquid crystal display means 2 have larger pitches than the connection terminals for the liquid crystal driver 3. The design eliminates the need to secure a large wiring region on a glass substrate 10, even when the liquid crystal driver 3 is mounted to the glass substrate 10 of the liquid crystal display means 2.

  • Patent number: 6877490
    Abstract: On the condition that a predetermined time has passed after an engine control unit stops its normal engine control operation when the ignition switch of a vehicle is turned off, the control unit can be supplied automatically with operating power to start up and execute an evaporation gas purging diagnosis process for detecting the leakage in the evaporation gas purge system of the vehicle. If the control unit determines that it has started up on the foregoing condition, it inhibits the operation of the electric loads of the vehicle that are needless for the evaporation gas purging diagnosis process. This reliably prevents wasteful power consumption, thereby preventing the battery of the vehicle from running down.
