  • Publication number: 20210260496
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for producing bubbles. The apparatus may include a motor, a fan device operably coupled to the motor to generate an air stream, and a bubble generating assembly operably coupled to the fan device so as to be rotated. The apparatus may also include a bubble solution dispenser for dispensing bubble solution onto bubble generating devices of the bubble generating assembly. Furthermore, a support member may be provided for supporting a container of the bubble solution. The support member may be altered into a dispensing position whereby the bubble solution can be dispensed from the container into the bubble solution dispenser. When the support member is in the dispensing position, a switch that activates the motor may be actuated into a closed state. The support member may include an actuation member that engages the switch when in the dispensing position.

  • Publication number: 20210229079
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to copper-containing molecular sieve catalysts that are highly suitable for the treatment of exhaust containing NOx pollutants. The copper-containing molecular sieve catalysts contain ion-exchanged copper as Cu+2 and Cu(OH)+1, and DRIFT spectroscopy of the catalyst exhibits perturbed T-O-T vibrational peaks corresponding to the Cu+2 and Cu(OH)+1. In spectra taken of the catalytic materials, a ratio of the Cu+2 to the Cu(OH)+1 peak integration areas preferably can be ?1. The copper-containing molecular sieve catalysts are aging stable such that the peak integration area percentage of the Cu+2 peak (area Cu+2/(area Cu+2+area Cu(OH)+1)) increases by ?20% upon aging at 800° C. for 16 hours in the presence of 10% H2O/air, compared to the fresh state.
