  • Publication number: 20210025125
    Abstract: A work attachment is capable of performing work at a high place while restricting the driving force required to lift the work attachment from its fallen posture in a folded state. The work attachment includes a main boom, a first insert boom and a second insert boom to be selectively used, an intermediate boom, an arm, and a distal working device. The intermediate boom has bendable first and second joints. The second insert boom has a fixed shape. The first insert boom is bent to project upward at a middle joint in the fallen posture, thereby making the center of gravity of the work attachment closer to a boom rotation center axis.

  • Patent number: 9403130
    Abstract: A simple method of manufacturing a silica membrane which has high separation performance and high permeation flux is provided. The method is a method for manufacturing a silica membrane by depositing a silica sol on a porous substrate, drying the silica sol by air blowing which has a dew point of -70 to 0° C., and then firing the same thereafter to produce the silica membrane. Further, the silica sol is preferably dried by air blowing at an air velocity of 5 to 20 m/sec.

  • Patent number: 9301885
    Abstract: An absorbent article includes a liquid-permeable top sheet, a liquid-impermeable back sheet, and an absorbent body between the liquid-permeable top sheet and liquid-impermeable back sheet. The top sheet exhibits a color difference in a range of 37-80, based on the L*a*b* color system and measured from a skin contact surface of the top sheet in a liquid dropping test. Further, the top sheet has a color-reducing agent having an IOB of 0.00-0.35, a melting point of no higher than 45° C. and a water solubility of 0.00-0.05 g in 100 g of water at 25° C.
