  • Patent number: 5725836
    Abstract: A method for providing aerogels, and aerogels produced according to the method, is described. As one aspect, antiperspirant compounds that are in aerogel form, and antiperspirant and deodorant compositions including such salts, are described. The method involves contacting a solution containing material to be processed with a species selected to precipitate the material and selected so as to be miscible with the solvent system of the solution. After the material is precipitated, the material may be washed with the precipitating species until it is substantially free of solvent system. Then, the precipitating species containing the material precipitate is taken above its critical point, and the supercritical fluid is exhausted above its critical temperature. Alternately, a separate isolating species is introduced to displace the precipitating species, or the precipitating species/solvent system mixture. The isolating species then is taken above its critical point, and exhausted above its critical temperature.

  • Patent number: 5033412
    Abstract: An apparatus for the semi-automatic feeding of piglets up to 21 days old, comprises an open feeding trough which is supplied with liquid feed in predetermined quantities at predetermined intervals. The inlet to the feed trough is disposed substantially centrally along the length of the trough, in the vicinity of a raised area of the trough, so that the feed distributes itself to the end of the trough under gravity. The strong, dominant animal of the group automatically makes to feed from the trough vicinity of the feed inlet, and the sloping arrangement of the trough ensures that the smaller, weaker animals obtain an adequate supply of feed. The trough surface is smooth and essentially free from crevices, recesses and the like, so that it is essentially cleaned by the feeding piglets themselves.

  • Patent number: 4877530
    Abstract: Disclosed are a fluid extractant, and a process and apparatus for using the extractant to separate an organic liquid from an aqueous mixture. The extractant comprises a first fluid solvent which is a gas in its near-critical or supercritical state and a cosolvent. A preferred first fluid solvent is near-critical liquid carbon dioxide. Preferred cosolvents are 2-ethyl hexanol for ethanol extraction, and hexanoic acid for acetic acid extraction. Organic compounds such as monohydric alcohols, monoacids, ketones, ethers, aldehydes and esters can be recovered from dilute aqueous solutions more economically than possible by prior art processes of distillation.
