  • Publication number: 20210021766
    Abstract: An image capturing apparatus that includes one or more image sensors configured to capture a plurality of images and store the captured images in a memory. The apparatus also includes a circuitry that detects an input trigger and continues to capture new images in response to the trigger. The numbers of new images captured are equal in magnitude to half the magnitude of the capacity of the memory. The first new image captured after detecting the trigger is tagged as a reference image. In response to the number of new images captured, the sensors are deactivated and the reference image is displayed immediately on a display panel. On detecting an input operation, the apparatus displays a target image from the plurality of images captured in a quick and efficient manner.

  • Patent number: 9298820
    Abstract: A terminal device includes circuitry configured to acquire designated image data stored in a memory. The circuitry may sort the designated image data based on a time at which the designated image data was captured. The circuitry may divide the sorted image data into a plurality of time slots and calculate, based on features of the designated image data corresponding to each time slot of the plurality of time slots, a time slot score for each of the plurality of time slots. The circuitry may allocate, based on the time slot score, a portion of a digest video to each of the plurality of time slots. The circuitry may generate, for each time slot, a local digest video by assigning an amount of the designated image data to the local digest video corresponding to the time slot, and generate the digest video by connecting the generated local digest videos.

  • Patent number: 4886524
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for treating a waste liquid from a wet exhaust gas treating device. In a waste diminishing system which has heretofore been used, a necessary distance of a flue between a spray nozzle and a dry electric dust collector has been within the range of about 30 to about 40 meters. The present invention is characterized by rendering vacant a first chamber of the dry dust collector, or alternatively providing a vacant chamber on the upstream side of the dry dust collector in order to treat an exhaust gas, whereby the length of the aforesaid fue can be reduced to about 10 meters or less.

  • Patent number: 4853194
    Abstract: A method for treating an exhaust gas which includes leading a coal-fired exhaust gas to a dry denitrating device, removing oxides of nitrogen from the exhaust gas in the device, leading the exhaust gas to a dry electric dust collector and a wet waste smoke desulfurizing device disposed at downstream positions, and removing dust from the exhaust gas in these devices. A sodium compound containing solution is sprayed into the exhaust gas flowing between the dry denitrating device and the dry electric dust collector thereby increasing the efficiency of the dust collector, and the resulting dry solids are then collected together with the dust by the dry electric dust collector.

  • Patent number: 4614645
    Abstract: A method for treating an effluent in an exhaust gas treating apparatus, which method comprises the steps of introducing the exhaust gas into a dry dust collector where a dust contained in the exhaust gas is removed; guiding the exhaust gas to a wet exhaust gas treating device where the exhaust gas is cleaned; and pouring the effluent discharged from the wet exhaust gas treating device into a stream above the dry dust collector where a dry solid matter is collected, characterized in that an amount of the effluent from the wet exhaust gas treating device is adjusted in accordance with a concentration of a halogen or a suspended material in the effluent from the wet exhaust gas treating device.

  • Patent number: 4603022
    Abstract: In a tray-type gas-liquid contactor, such as a distillation, rectification, or absorption column, in which mass transfer is effected between gas and liquid through a gas-liquid contact, the height of both wing parts of a weir provided along the periphery of the tray is made not less than 1.2 times that of the central part so that, when the contactor is installed, for example, on a floating offshore structure, the performance of the apparatus is not adversely affected by an inclination or oscillating motion.

  • Patent number: 4487748
    Abstract: In an exhaust gas scrubber having a plurality of absorption sections which are supplied with a chemical liquid for gas-liquid contacting, fresh liquid for makeup use is supplied to the section closest to the gas outlet and then is mixed gradually with the liquid being recycled to the section on the gas inlet side of the vessel, whereby the process permits exhaust gases with saturation humidity at temperatures of 75.degree. C. or upwards to be treated effectively with but a limited drainage of water.

  • Patent number: 4166838
    Abstract: A process for exhaust gas desulfurization by the wet lime-gypsum process comprises an absorption step for scrubbing the exhaust gases with a calcium hydroxide slurry as an absorbent; an oxidizing step for oxidizing a slurry composed chiefly of calcium sulfite from the absorption step; and a solids-liquid separation step for separating a slurry composed mainly of gypsum from the oxidizing step, characterized in that the liquid from said solids-liquid separation step is passed into a sulfate impurity reaction step where said liquid reacts with added calcium hydroxide and is thereby freed from water-soluble sulfate impurities; and the so purified liquid is supplied to the absorbent preparation step where it is mixed with calcium hydroxide to form said absorbent. Also, precipitates formed in said sulfate impurity reaction step are supplied to said absorbent preparation step.
