  • Publication number: 20110207060
    Abstract: A fluidized chamber with a coarse layer of refractory particles and a fine layer of refractory particles along with a fluidizing gas inlet connected to a fluidizing gas supply. The fluidizing bed does not have a distributor and fluidizing gas is passed through the fluidized bed at a flow rate to fluidize the fine layer particles but not to fluidize the coarse layer. Preferably, the fluidized bed is a heat treating furnace, the fluidizing gas is combustible and objects to be heat treated are fed through the fluidizing chamber on a continuous basis. A method of operating a fluidized bed is also provided.

  • Patent number: 7767360
    Abstract: An electrochemical cell apparatus is disclosed. The electrochemical cell apparatus includes a membrane-electrode assembly (MEA) having a membrane with a first side and a second side opposite the first side, a first electrode in contact with the first side, and a second electrode in contact with the second side. The apparatus further includes a flow field member and a protector member having a boundary partially defined by a first surface facing toward a center of the MEA. The second electrode has a boundary partially defined by a second surface facing away from the center of the MEA. A first distance from the center of the MEA to the first surface is greater than a correspondingly oriented second distance from the center of the MEA to the second surface, thereby defining a gap between the first surface and the second surface.

  • Publication number: 20010040214
    Abstract: An apparatus and method that can allow a standard PIV systems to obtain particle size as well as the third velocity component with minimal hardware modifications. The invention is based on using two radiation sheets of different wavelength ranges, overlapped with a known offset. By obtaining simultaneous images filtered for each wavelength, the scattering particle's location within the radiation sheet can be established. Once its location is known, its size can be determined through intensity measurements, and the third velocity component determined from position change between exposures.
