  • Publication number: 20190201971
    Abstract: First, an auxiliary cut-out (11, 16) is formed in a side wall (1) of a continuous casting mold. That cut-out extends, in the longitudinal direction, at least over the cut-out length (L) of the useful cut-out (10) and has an auxiliary cross-section orthogonal to the longitudinal direction. Then, an additional element (13, 14, 17) is inserted into the auxiliary cut-out (11, 16), and extends, in the longitudinal direction, at least over a cut-out length (L) of a later useful cut-out (10) and bounds the useful cut-out (10) orthogonally to the longitudinal direction at least over part of the periphery of the useful cut-out. The useful cut-out (10) is formed by inserting the additional element (13, 14, 17) into the auxiliary cut-out (11, 16). The useful cut-out (10) is closed all around orthogonally to the longitudinal direction. Orthogonally to the longitudinal direction, the useful cut-out has a (correspondingly small) useful cross-section and a maximum useful extent (d3).

  • Publication number: 20190056176
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process and device for the cryogenic separation of a methane-containing feed gas predominantly consisting of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, that is partially condensed in this case by cooling, in order to obtain a hydrogen-containing first liquid phase predominantly consisting of carbon monoxide and methane, from which first liquid phase, in an H2 separation column that is heated via a circulation heater, a second liquid phase is generated by separating off hydrogen, from which second liquid phase, in a CO/CH4 separation column, a carbon monoxide-rich gas phase is obtained having a purity that permits release thereof as carbon monoxide product. It is characteristic in this case that a low-methane material stream is withdrawn from the H2 separation column and is then applied to the CO/CH4 separation column as reflux.

  • Patent number: 9512004
    Abstract: A method for operating a steam reforming plant wherein a hydrocarbon-rich feed is reacted with steam to form synthesis gas. The plant includes a steam reforming reactor and processing units to obtain a hydrogen-rich fraction after separation of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. The plant also includes a pressure-swing adsorption plant to separate the hydrogen-rich fraction into product and residual gas. A recycle compressor is included and allows the plant to operate is two different modes. In the first mode, carbon dioxide separated from the synthesis gas is compressed and added to the hydrocarbon-rich feed. In the second mode, the recycle compressor is used to recycle residual gas from the pressure-swing adsorption plant to the hydrogen-rich fraction upstream of the pressure-swing adsorption plant.

  • Publication number: 20160341472
    Abstract: A process for producing and purifying a synthesis gas stream that contains CO- and H2-produced from a hydrocarbon-containing feed in a gas production unit, CO2 is separated from the synthesis gas stream and CO is cryogenically separated from the synthesis gas stream. CO2 that makes up 5% to 30% by volume in the synthesis is reduced to less than 10 ppm by volume by temperature swing adsorption. The temperature swing adsorption takes place upstream of the cryogenic separation of CO. The CO2 is adsorbed using a disordered adsorbent bed wherein the adsorbent is cooled by means of indirect heat transfer from the adsorbent to the heat transfer medium during adsorption and the adsorbent loaded with CO2 is heated by indirect heat transfer from the heat transfer medium to the adsorbent to effect desorption of CO2.

  • Patent number: 9493193
    Abstract: A locking mechanism having a lock and a locking bolt for the detachable fixing of a tiltable driver's cab on the chassis of a military motor vehicle. A shared joint (knee) of a knee lever, which has two one-armed lever arms of different lengths, is used as the locking element of the lock, the joint engaging with a corresponding recess of the locking bolt in the locked position of the locking mechanism. The short lever arm of the knee lever is pivotably supported on its end facing away from the knee in a fixed bearing, and the long lever arm of the knee lever is pivotably supported by its end facing away from the knee with the first lever arm of a reversing lever pivotable around a pivot axis. The second lever arm of the reversing lever is connected to a drive for pivoting the reversing lever, so that a pivot motion of the reversing lever induces a motion of the knee of the knee lever into or out of the recess of the locking bolt.
