  • Publication number: 20210324604
    Abstract: In a blade control device, a blade operation control part outputs a command for raising and lowering a blade such that a position deviation between a blade position calculated by a blade position calculating part and a blade target position approaches zero in a case where a blade load is equal to or less than a second load threshold value, and outputs a command for raising the blade in a case where the blade load is greater than the second load threshold value. In a case where an update condition is satisfied, the update condition being set in advance so as to associate the blade load and a first load threshold value with each other, a target position setting part updates the blade target position using the blade position obtained when the update condition is satisfied as a reference.

  • Publication number: 20210324605
    Abstract: A blade operation control part of a blade control device controls operation of a blade such that when a blade load is equal to or less than a first load threshold value and a position deviation is equal to or greater than a position threshold value, the blade is lowered to make the position deviation approach zero. The blade operation control part controls operation of the blade such that the blade is raised regardless of the position deviation when the blade load is equal to or greater than a second load threshold value.

  • Patent number: 7144736
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus which continuously separate and measure mercury in an exhaust gas in accordance with each chemical conformation and display a measurement result in real time. According to the method and the apparatus, water-soluble mercury in a gas is absorbed into an absorption solution (7), the gas and the absorption solution (7) are then separated from each other, the water-soluble mercury in the absorption solution (7) is reduced to be converted into gaseous metal mercury and led to an analyzer (20), and metal mercury in the gas which is not absorbed into the absorption solution (7) is led to an analyzer (22) in the form of gas. As a result, the water-soluble mercury and the non-water-soluble mercury contained in the gas can be captured and measured/analyzed in respective measurement systems in accordance with each chemical conformation. In addition, a concentration of the metal mercury and that of the water-soluble mercury in the gas can be continuously monitored in real time.

    Abstract: To provide a method of and an apparatus for continuously measuring elemental mercury and bivalent mercury both contained in a gaseous medium fractionally with a simplified structure, the concentration of a total mercury (Metallic Mercury+Bivalent Mercury) and the concentration of elemental mercury contained in gases are measured continuously and fractionally. In the practice of this mercury measuring method, a first column 1, filled with a first fixed catalyst, and a second column 11, filled with a second fixed catalyst, are fluid connected in parallel relation to each other. The gases G are introduced into those first and second columns 1 and 11. In the first column 1, the first fixed catalyst collects and removes the bivalent mercury, but passes only the elemental mercury in the gases through the first column.
