  • Publication number: 20190169072
    Abstract: According to embodiments, a batch mixture includes inorganic components, a non-polar carbon chain lubricant, and an organic surfactant having a polar head. The non-polar carbon chain lubricant and the organic surfactant are present in concentrations satisfying the relationship: B(C1(d+d0)+C2(f+f0))=SC, where: d0+d is an amount of non-polar carbon chain lubricant in percent by weight of the inorganic components, by super addition; f0+f is an amount of organic surfactant in percent by weight of the inorganic components, by super addition; B is a scaling factor; C1 is a scaling factor of the concentration of the non-polar carbon chain lubricant; and C2 is a scaling factor of the concentration of the organic surfactant. Embodiments provide that 3.6?SC?14.

  • Patent number: 8926913
    Abstract: A ceramic particulate filter having a porous catalytic material deposited on walls within the filter. Particulate matter is trapped in the walls of the filter and the catalytic material removes gases, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), from gases passing through the filter. The filter, in one embodiment, is adaptable for use with internal combustion (gas and diesel) engines. A method of making the filter is also described.

  • Patent number: 8894895
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to porous ceramic processing; and in particular to a method using selected pore forming materials to avoid high exotherms during the ceramic firing process, and the green bodies formed using the selected pore forming materials. The selected pore forming materials are homogeneous wax/non-ionic surfactant particles formed by a prilling process in which the wax is melted and the non-ionic surfactant is mixed into the wax prior to prilling. The disclosure is useful in the manufacture porous ceramic honeycomb bodies including ceramic honeycomb filter traps.

  • Patent number: 8236083
    Abstract: A wall-flow honeycomb filter comprising a ceramic monolith having a plurality of porous walls formed therein. The plurality of porous walls define a plurality of inlet cells and a plurality of outlet cells extending between an inlet end face and an outlet end face of the monolith. The inlet cells are open at the inlet end face and plugged at or near the outlet end face. The outlet cells are open at the outlet end face and plugged at or near the inlet end face. The monolith has a ratio of a combined cross-sectional area of the inlet cells to a combined cross-sectional area of the outlet cells greater than 1. The monolith has at least one inlet cell cluster which contains an N×M group of inlet cells, N and M being integers greater than 1, each inlet cell cluster consisting of a plurality of inlet cells separated by inlet cluster walls.
