  • Publication number: 20200064086
    Abstract: A heat exchanger having a polyamine on at least part of a surface of the heat exchanger. The existence of polyamine on the surface of the heat exchanger allows the odor components to be temporality held by virtue of the action of polyamine, and the odor components are not released into an interior room or the like at once in conjunction with the evaporation of free water (such as condensed water). Thus, the release of odor components is made moderate, and changes in the concentration of odor components in the interior room are reduced, so that strong odors sensed by people are suppressed. A typical example of the polyamine is PEI, and a typical example of the heat exchanger is an evaporator used in a car air-conditioner.

  • Patent number: 10539229
    Abstract: An engagement operation of a dog clutch is carried out while an engagement operation of a second clutch is being carried out, that is, during a situation that an uplock is hard to occur because of a phase shift generated between meshing counterpart members of the dog clutch. Thus, the dog clutch is easily engaged, and it is possible to facilitate preparation for transmission of power through a first power transmission path. If the dog clutch is not engaged, the second clutch is engaged and a second power transmission path is established, so it is possible to start moving a vehicle by transmitting power through the second power transmission path. Thus, when the dog clutch is in a non-engaged state at the time of an N-to-D shift during a stop of the vehicle, it is possible to ensure the startability of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200001600
    Abstract: There is provided an image recording apparatus including a carriage, a head, a velocity sensor, and a controller. The controller obtains velocity data of the carriage from the velocity sensor, determines a threshold value based on the velocity data, records an image on a recording medium, and suspends a recording pass when the controller has determined that a velocity indicated by the velocity data is lower than a velocity corresponding to the threshold value. The controller can execute a first recording mode and a second recording mode in which the velocity of the carriage is faster than that of the first recording mode. The velocity data for the first recording mode is obtained in a warm-up time after a recording command is received until recording of the image is started. The velocity data for the second recording mode is obtained in other time other than the warm-up time.
