  • Patent number: 10739043
    Abstract: In a conveying device, a belt conveyer is equipped with a conveying portion that conveys an object from an upstream region to a downstream region. A heat source heats the conveyed object. A cooling portion is located downstream of a terminal end of the belt conveyor and cools the object. A first thermoacoustic cooling device cools the cooling portion. A first prime mover generates acoustic waves from heat transmitted from the first heat source. A first receiver generates, from the acoustic waves, cooling heat corresponding to a cooling temperature that is lower than a temperature of the heat source.

  • Publication number: 20200240669
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a management apparatus and an air conditioning management system by which the objectivity of a comfort level evaluation relating to a smell in a room can be enhanced and a comfort level can be evaluated also with respect to an unknown smell. [Solving Means] A management apparatus according to an embodiment of the present invention includes a detecting unit, an input unit, a storage unit, and a control unit. The detecting unit detects a smell in a room. The input unit is operated by a user who enters the room and acquires a sensory evaluation of each user which relates to the smell in the room when the user enters the room. The storage unit accumulates evaluation data obtained by associating an output of the detecting unit and an output of the input unit with each other and stores a plurality of attributes relating to a comfort level of the smell in the room, the attributes being classified on the basis of the evaluation data.

  • Patent number: 10497500
    Abstract: A powder magnetic core having excellent specific resistance or strength. The powder magnetic core has soft magnetic particles, first coating layers that coat the surfaces of the soft magnetic particles and include aluminum nitride, and second coating layers that coat at least a part of the surfaces of the first coating layers and include a low-melting-point glass having a softening point lower than an annealing temperature for the soft magnetic particles. The first coating layers including aluminum nitride are excellent in the wettability to the low-melting-point glass which constitutes the second coating layers and suppress diffusion of constitutional elements between the soft magnetic particles and the low-melting-point glass of the second coating layers. The powder magnetic core can stably exhibit a higher specific resistance and higher strength than the prior art owing to such a synergistic action of the first coating layers and second coating layers.
