  • Publication number: 20190178122
    Abstract: An oil separator for trapping oil mist contained in blow-by gas includes a separation plate, an upstream oil-mist trapping chamber, and a downstream oil-mist trapping chamber. The upstream and downstream oil-mist trapping chambers are divided by the separation plate. The upstream oil-mist trapping chamber communicates with a flow inlet for blow-by gas. The downstream oil-mist trapping chamber communicates with the upstream oil-mist trapping chamber and communicates with a flow outlet for blow-by gas. A return port formed through the separation plate returns oil mist trapped in the downstream oil-mist trapping chamber into the upstream oil-mist trapping chamber. The return port is positioned vertically above the bottom surface of the upstream oil-mist trapping chamber and is positioned at substantially the same vertical level as the lowermost portion of the bottom surface of the downstream oil-mist trapping chamber.

  • Patent number: 9235788
    Abstract: Disclosed is an image forming apparatus including a command receiving unit that receives a print command, a detector that detects a state of the operation unit, and a controller. When the detector detects that the state of the operation unit is a predetermined state subsequent to receiving the print command by the command receiving unit and prior to completion of printing based on the print command, the controller causes the printing to be terminated. When the detector detects that the state of the operation unit is not the predetermined state subsequent to receiving the print command by the command receiving unit and prior to the completion of the printing based on the print command, the controller causes the printing to be executed.
