  • Publication number: 20210187594
    Abstract: A hollow turbomachine turbine blade including rising cavities communicating with a squealer tip of the blade through standard dust removal holes intended to remove dust and through inclined cooling bores intended to cool a barrier of the squealer tip by leading to a pressure side face of the blade, at least one rising cavity including a tip with no dust removal hole and an inclined cooling bore formed in its lateral wall and intended to cool the squealer tip barrier is enlarged to have a diameter at least equal to the standard diameter of a dust removal hole and thus also serve as a dust removal hole, so that the air flow extracted for cooling the blade is reduced, at least one of the cavities positioned facing the tip of one of the rising cavities having an increased volume corresponding to at least a volume deducted from the tip of the rising cavity.

  • Patent number: 10399061
    Abstract: The Fischer-Tropsch process can be used for the conversion of hydrocarbonaceous feed stocks into normally liquid and/or solid hydrocarbons. The feed stock (e.g. natural gas, associated gas and/or coal-bed methane, coal) is converted in a first step into a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide (this mixture is often referred to as synthesis gas or syngas). The synthesis gas (or syngas) is then converted in one or more steps over a suitable catalyst at elevated temperature and pressure into paraffinic compounds ranging from methane to high molecular weight molecules comprising up to 200 carbon atoms, or, under particular circumstances, even more. The present invention relates to a catalyst, a method for manufacturing said catalyst. The present invention further relates to a catalyst obtainable by said method. The present invention further relates to a multi tubular reactor comprising said catalyst.
