  • Publication number: 20170215491
    Abstract: A pad material includes a urethane material satisfying LC?1 and RC?80 where LC represents compression hardness and RC represents compression resilience. In a garment with cup sections in which a pad including the pad material is disposed at least in a lower cup section, it is possible to control clothing pressure applied to lower parts of a bust from the lower cup section and to reduce a total amount of the clothing pressure applied to the bust. Furthermore, flexibility, lightweightness, and fluffiness of the cup sections are enhanced and both shapeability of the bust and comfortability can be achieved.

  • Patent number: 6274108
    Abstract: A process is provided for removing carbon dioxide out of combustion exhaust gas by scrubbing the exhaust gas with an aqueous solution of monoethanolamine in a scrubber, and regenerating the carbon dioxide-loaded aqueous solution of monoethanolamine in a regenerator. The process is provided with means for replenishing the aqueous solution of monoethanolamine with a stock, aqueous solution containing from about 70% to about 75% by weight of monoethanolamine. By providing a stock, aqueous solution containing from about 70% to about 75% by weight of monoethanolamine, which is injected into the carbon dioxide-loaded aqueous solution of monoethanolamine being transferred from the scrubber to the regenerator, the entire carbon dioxide recovery system is free from flammables, rendering fire-fighting precautions unnecessary.

  • Patent number: 5344627
    Abstract: A process for removing carbon dioxide (CO.sub.2) from a combustion exhaust gas of a boiler (1) which generates steam for driving high (3), intermediate (7), and low (8) pressure turbines. The process comprises the steps of removing CO.sub.2 in the combustion exhaust gas by absorption with a CO.sub.2 -absorbing liquid (19), liquefying the removed CO.sub.2 (28) by compression (42) and cooling (48), storing (52) the CO.sub.2, and regenerating the CO.sub.2 -absorbing liquid by a CO.sub.2 -absorbing liquid regeneration column (24) equipped with a reboiler (30). In the process, a part (40) of steam discharged from the high pressure turbine (3) is used to drive turbines (41, 43) for compressors (42, 44) that compress the CO.sub.2, and a refrigerant for cooling the CO.sub.2, and steam (45) discharged from the compressor turbines is supplied as a heating source to the reboiler (30) for the regeneration of the CO.sub.2 -absorbing liquid.

  • Patent number: 5339633
    Abstract: An electric generating power plant and a method of operation thereof wherein the boiler (1) produces steam to a turbine driven-generator (2), carbon dioxide from combustion exhaust gas emitted from the boiler is simultaneously absorbed in an absorbing solution in an absorber (7), the absorbing solution with the absorbed carbon dioxide is passed through a regenerator (10) where the carbon dioxide is stripped from the absorbing solution, the regenerated absorbing solution is returned to the absorber (7), and steam from either the boiler (1) or turbine of the turbine-driven generator (2) is supplied to a reboiler (13) to provide heat for operation of the regenerator (10). During periods of high demand for electric power steam extraction from the boiler or turbine is discontinued, operation of the regenerator (10) is discontinued and the absorbing solution from the absorber (7) is stored in a first storage unit (15).

  • Patent number: 5318758
    Abstract: An apparatus and a process for removing CO.sub.2 from a combustion exhaust gas, by effecting counterflow contact of aqueous alkanolamine solution with the combustion exhaust gas to absorb CO.sub.2 from the gas in the alkanolamine solution and effecting a further contact of the gas with either, condensate water formed by causing condensation of the gas after removal of CO.sub.2, or condensate water formed by causing condensation of the combustion exhaust gas directly after combustion of the fuel. The apparatus includes a tower (1), a first contact section (2) in the tower through which the exhaust gas flows upwardly in counterflow contact with the aqueous alkanolamine solution dispersed by a nozzle device (7) downstream of the first contact section (2), a second contact section (3) in the tower (1) downstream of the nozzle device (7) for effecting counterflow contact of reflux water from a spent absorbent liquor regenerating tower (28) with the gas after removal of CO.sub.2.
