  • Patent number: 10836124
    Abstract: A press for making a continuous sheet from composite material has upper and lower press belts having respective lower and upper reaches that vertically spacedly confront one another across a press gap having an upstream inlet end and a downstream outlet end, and that have transversely spaced outer edges extending in the direction. The belts are advanced direction and thereby draw a mat of the composite material in the inlet end, compress it into the sheet, and expelling the sheet from the downstream end. Two transversely spaced elastic seal strips extend in the direction in the gap and are each engaged between a respective one of the outer edges of the upper belt and the respective outer edge of the lower belt. Each belt has at each of the edges a surface in engagement with the respective edge strip and having an average peak-to-valley height of less than 1 ?m.

  • Patent number: 10011084
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cycle press, in particular a short-cycle press, for producing and/or coating board-shaped materials, in particular engineered wood boards, comprising a press body having several press frames arranged next to one another in the longitudinal press direction, and further comprising an upper press plate and a lower press plate, wherein pressing cylinders supported on the press frames act on the upper press plate or the lower press plate. According to the invention, said cycle press is characterized in that the pressing cylinders are attached to the press frames by means of frame pins, wherein said frame pins engage in cut-outs of the press frames. Thus, the pressing cylinders can be prestressed against the press frames.

  • Patent number: 9895650
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and to a device for physical gas scrubbing, wherein a feed gas (1) containing hydrogen, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and also carbonyl sulphide and/or hydrogen sulphide is conducted through a first scrubbing section (W1) in countercurrent to a scrubbing medium preloaded with carbon dioxide, in order to separate sulphur components substantially selectively off from the feed gas and to generate a desulphurized gas mixture (3). In a second scrubbing section, carbon dioxide is separated off from only a subquantity of the desulphurized gas mixture by scrubbing with an unloaded scrubbing medium (4) and the resultant carbon dioxide-preloaded scrubbing medium is used completely in the first scrubbing section (W1) as scrubbing medium.

  • Publication number: 20130025452
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and apparatus for regenerating a scrubbing medium used at elevated pressure in a physical gas scrubber for purifying a feed gas containing hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The scrubbing medium, loaded with carbon dioxide and sulphur components, is expanded to a pressure between 0.4 and 1.7 bar(a), liberating a carbon dioxide-rich, sulphur component-containing gas. This gas is compressed and introduced into a scrubbing column, in which sulphur components are scrubbed out of the carbon dioxide-rich gas using sulphur-free scrubbing medium.

  • Publication number: 20110023714
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for scrubbing medium regeneration in a physical gas scrubbing, in which predominantly substances of a first type are separated from a laden scrubbing medium (2, 17) by stripping (cold stripping) in a stripping column (enrichment column (A)) and predominantly substances of a second type are separated from a laden scrubbing medium (2, 17) by subsequent thermal regeneration in a thermal regeneration column (H), and to an apparatus for carrying out the process. The laden scrubbing medium (6) is, after the cold stripping, withdrawn from the enrichment column (A), preheated (E1), expanded (a) and subsequently subjected to a thermal desorption in a device for carrying out a thermal desorption (thermal desorption device (W)), in which the content of substances of the first type in the laden scrubbing medium is further reduced.
