  • Publication number: 20150083083
    Abstract: A marine engine includes an exhaust manifold, a valve cover, a top cover, and a fuel supply pipe. The exhaust manifold collects exhaust gases discharged from a plurality of cylinders. The valve cover is a cover that covers all of a plurality of valves for air intake or air discharge to or from the cylinders. The top cover is a cover that covers the valve cover. The fuel supply pipe is arranged in a space between the valve cover and the top cover, and allows a fuel to flow therethrough. The top cover is provided with a partition that is arranged so as to separate the side where the exhaust gas flows immediately after being discharged from the exhaust manifold from the side where the fuel supply pipe is arranged.

  • Patent number: 8512732
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a method for producing bioactive composites having imparted thereto bioactivity, to thereby form and grow in vivo or in vitro a coating layer containing a calcium phosphate compound as the major component with a high adhesion strength on the surface of various types of porous substrates such as a porous shaped body comprising an organic polymer. The means for solving the problem is characterized by comprising at least (1) a step of immersing a porous substrate in a solution containing at least calcium ions and hydrogenphosphate ions, thereby distributing the solution to the inside of at least a part of the pores of the substrate, and (2) a step of depositing fine particles containing a calcium phosphate compound as the major component inside the pores into which the solution is introduced.

  • Patent number: 8178066
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for stabilizing fine particles of calcium phosphates without lowering their solid phase forming activity. It is possible to stabilize the fine particles of calcium phosphates by stopping the growth of the fine particles formed in an aqueous solution supersaturated with respect to calcium phosphates. More specifically, the fine particles of calcium phosphates were stabilized by lowering the inorganic ion concentration of a fine-particle-forming solution containing fine particles of calcium phosphates by dialysis, ion exchange, dilution, or the like, or by separating the fine particles of calcium phosphates from the fine-particle-forming solution by filtration, centrifuging, or the like.

  • Publication number: 20060154071
    Abstract: A carbon fine powder is obtained by uniformly coating the surface of a carbon fine powder having a large specific surface area with a uniform thin film layer of a metal oxide, metal nitride or metal carbide as an electrode active substance material through induction of a sonochemical reaction. It is found that the obtained carbon fine powder has a low electrical resistance and shows a rapid faradaic process (pseudo-capacitance) of the surface coating layer. The coated carbon fine powder, a process for producing the same, and a supercapacitor and a secondary battery using the carbon fine powder are disclosed.
