  • Patent number: 10941427
    Abstract: A production system for a product selected from a nitrogen-containing product and a fermented and cultured product that does not involve (or can minimize) the transport of liquid ammonia can include: an ammonia synthesis apparatus in which an ammonia-containing gas is synthesized by reaction of a source gas containing hydrogen and nitrogen in the presence of a supported metal catalyst containing as a support one or more selected from the group consisting of: i) a conductive mayenite compound; ii) a two-dimensional electride compound or a precursor thereof; and iii) a complex formed of a support base containing at least one metal oxide selected from ZrO2, TiO2, CeO2, and MgO and a metal amide represented by a formula M(NH2)x (where M represents one or more selected from Li, Na, K, Be, Mg, Ca, Sr, Ba, and Eu; and x represents a valence number of M) supported by the support base.

  • Publication number: 20200407762
    Abstract: Provided is a novel production system that does not involve, or can minimize, the transport of liquid ammonia in the production of an organic compound or the production of a microorganism by microbial fermentation. A production system for an organic compound or a microorganism includes: an ammonia synthesis apparatus in which an ammonia-containing gas is synthesized by reaction of a source gas containing hydrogen and nitrogen in the presence of a supported ruthenium catalyst; and a culture apparatus that cultures a microorganism having organic compound productivity using ammonia originating from the ammonia-containing gas obtained by using the ammonia synthesis apparatus.

  • Patent number: 8973432
    Abstract: An evaluation unit includes a front-rear acceleration sensor and an up-down acceleration sensor. The evaluation unit calculates a length of a track obtained by plotting detected front-rear and up-down accelerations on a three-dimensional space along a time axis within a period from gear shift start of an automatic transmission to gear shift end, calculate a track length per unit time by dividing the length of the track by a time interval from the gear shift start to the gear shift end, and evaluates that a gear shift shock is larger as the track length per unit time is longer.

  • Patent number: 8372606
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for separating and obtaining a basic amino acid hydrochloride from a basic amino acid fermentation broth or an enzyme reaction solution which enzyme reaction is catalyzed by viable microbial cells which are able to produce a basic amino acid, each containing sulfate ions, wherein product yields and qualities are almost the same and are secured more easily, as compared with the conventional technique.

  • Patent number: 8146433
    Abstract: A failure detect device detects the presence of a failure in a peripheral member of a rotary shaft by analyzing a vibration generated in a device provided with the rotary shaft when the rotary shaft is rotated. A vibration detection unit detects the vibration of the device, and a rotation speed detection unit detects a rotation speed of the rotary shaft. An analysis unit calculates a frequency spectrum of the vibration of the device and determines an actually measured vibration level at each vibration order by dividing a frequency component of the calculated frequency spectrum by the rotation speed of the rotary shaft. A detection unit detects the presence of a failure in the peripheral member on the basis of the actually measured vibration level at each vibration order.
