  • Publication number: 20200018311
    Abstract: A first injection port is open to a suction chamber of a plurality of chambers at some rotation phases, and is located within an angular range defined by a line connecting a winding-end contact point of an orbiting scroll at a compression start phase with a base circle center of a fixed scroll and one of two lines tangent to a winding-end point locus of a tip seal at a tooth tip of a spiral body of the orbiting scroll and passing through a base circle center of the orbiting scroll, the one being closer to the winding-end contact point. The first injection port does not interfere with the tip seal at the tooth tip of the spiral body of the orbiting scroll.

  • Patent number: 10460947
    Abstract: The present invention is method for polishing silicon wafer, the method including recovering used slurry containing polishing abrasive grains that have been supplied to the silicon wafer and used for polishing, and circulating and supplying the recovered used slurry to the silicon wafer to polish the silicon wafer, wherein mixed alkali solution containing chelating agent and either or both of a pH adjuster and a polishing rate accelerator is added to the recovered used slurry without adding unused polishing abrasive grains, and the recovered used slurry is circulated and supplied to the silicon wafer to polish the silicon wafer. As a result, there is provided a method for polishing a silicon wafer that can suppress the occurrence of metal impurity contamination and stabilize the composition (e.g., the concentration of the chelating agent) of the used slurry when the used slurry is circulated and supplied to the silicon wafer for polishing.

  • Patent number: 10293531
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is to effectively prevent the rust generation on a flange portion and to prevent the deformation of the flange portion due to the filling pressure of a molding material in the manufacture of a sealing device whereby a seal main body comprising a rubber-like elastic material and having a portion that covers both surfaces of the flange portion of a metal reinforcing ring is integrally formed on the reinforcing ring by means of a metal mold. To this end, the flange portion of the reinforcing ring is formed in advance with a shape which is distributed unevenly in the direction opposite the direction in which the flange portion is deformed from its original shape by the filling pressure of the molding material.

  • Publication number: 20180156277
    Abstract: The invention provides a sealing device sealing a foreign material in a machine outer side so as to prevent the foreign material from entering into a machine inner side, having an end face lip which slidably comes into contact with an end face portion of a rotation side part, and applying grease for lubrication to an inner peripheral surface of the end face lip. In the sealing device, an application amount of the grease applied to an inner peripheral surface of a leading end portion in the end face lip is set to be smaller than an application amount of the grease applied to an inner peripheral surface of a root portion in the end face lip. Accordingly, grease applied to an inner peripheral surface of an end face lip is hard to be scattered even in the case that a centrifugal force acts on the sealing device.

  • Patent number: 9011121
    Abstract: A device that enhances compressor efficiency by reducing pressure losses in a discharge muffler space into which is discharged a refrigerant compressed by a compression unit. A low-stage discharge muffler space is formed in the shape of a ring around a drive shaft. In the low-stage discharge muffler space, a communication port flow guide is provided so as to cover a predetermined area of an opening of a communication port from a side of a flow path in a reverse direction out of two flow paths in different directions around the drive shaft from a discharge port through which is discharged the refrigerant compressed by a low-stage compression unit to the communication port through which the refrigerant flows out. The communication port flow guide transforms a direction of a flow into a direction of a connecting flow path.

  • Patent number: 8790097
    Abstract: A refrigerant compressor that enhances compressor efficiency by both reducing an amplitude of pressure pulsations and reducing pressure losses in a discharge muffler space into which is discharged a refrigerant compressed at a compression unit. A low-stage discharge muffler space is formed in the shape of a ring around a drive shaft. In the low-stage discharge muffler space, a discharge port rear guide is provided in the proximity of a discharge port through which is discharged the refrigerant compressed by a low-stage compression unit. The discharge port rear guide is provided at a flow path in one direction out of two flow paths from the discharge port to a communication port in different directions around the drive shaft, and prevents the refrigerant from flowing in that direction, thereby causing the refrigerant to circulate in a forward direction in the ring-shaped discharge muffler space.
