  • Patent number: 5574202
    Abstract: A technique for degrading a chemical warfare poison gas to render it innocuous. The toxic compound to be so treated is conducted through a reactor containing an anhydrous liquid halide which acts as a catalyst to degrade the toxic compound without yielding toxic effluents. The liquid halide is reclaimed and reintroduced into the reactor whereas the benign breakdown by-products are routed to other uses.

  • Patent number: 5193551
    Abstract: A phantom assembly adapted to simulate a human subject to verify the accuracy of a carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLco) measuring device for testing the functional integrity of the subject's alveolar-capillary membrane. The device includes a mouthpiece through which the subject inhales a mixture of carbon monoxide and an inert gas in a predetermined ratio. Then after a breath holding interval the subject exhales into the mouthpiece an alveolar sample whose carbon monoxide content is analyzed by the device to evaluate the subject's condition. The assembly includes a phantom whose chamber is interposable between the mouthpiece of the DLco device and a calibration syringe having a known capacity. Within the chamber cavity is a flow tube that extends between valved mouthpiece and syringe ports on opposing end wall of the chamber.

  • Patent number: 4425256
    Abstract: A process for converting wood stock or other cellulosic material into activated charcoal, use being made for this purpose of liquid anhydrous hydrogen chloride which converts the stock into a charcoal-like substance or charwood which is thereafter heated in a controlled atmosphere for a sufficient period to produce an activated charcoal.

  • Patent number: 4318710
    Abstract: A process for converting wood stock or other cellulosic material into charcoal, use being made for this purpose of liquid anhydrous hydrogen chloride at ambient temperatures.

  • Patent number: 4260685
    Abstract: A method for effecting saccharification of raw cellulosic material taken from any available source. The cellulosic material is hydrolyzed by immersing it in a bath of anhydrous liquid hydrogen chloride to yield usable glucose and other products. The cellulosic material may be processed through one or more pre-treatment steps, each acting to enhance the yield of glucose and other products when the pre-treated material is subjected to hydrolyzation by anhydrous liquid hydrogen chloride. The raw material may first be immersed in a caustic solution which swells the cellular structure to render it more reactive and acts to solubilize the lignins and other compounds contained therein, these being washed away to provide a prepared cellulosic material.

  • Patent number: 4235968
    Abstract: A method for effecting saccharification of raw cellulosic material taken from any available source. In the first step, the raw material is immersed in a caustic solution which swells the cellular structure to render it more reactive and acts to solubilize the lignins and other compounds contained therein, these being washed away to provide a prepared cellulosic material. In the second step, the prepared material is subjected to a viscose process to produce a viscous solution of sodium cellulose xanthate in sodium hydroxide, from which solution the aqueous phase is separated to provide a viscose intermediate. In the final step, the viscose intermediate is hydrolyzed by immersing it in a bath of anhydrous liquid hydrogen chloride to yield usable glucose and other products.

  • Patent number: 4176617
    Abstract: An alarm system to monitor pressure in tubes or containers that normally maintain (a) a constant pressure, i.e., a fixed pressure or a pressure of some steady or unchanging magnitude, (b) a periodic pressure, i.e., a pressure which oscillates with a regular interval a recognizable period or a pressure, the magnitude of which varies from some positive value to a value close to or less than zero and then returns to its original positive value in some regular interval of time, (c) or a fluctuating pressure, i.e., a pressure similar to a periodic pressure but differing by not having any fixed period of time for an oscillation; a pressure which shifts from positive to negative uncertainly, is described. This alarm system sets an audible or other signal should pressure in a monitored line fall for a longer than acceptable period.
