  • Patent number: 4391016
    Abstract: A degreasing apparatus for an elongated member including a treatment room sequentially divided in an isolated fashion and along the feeding direction of the elongated member into a degreasing chamber, a predrying chamber and a finish drying chamber. At least one pair of rotary brushes are provided in the degreasing chamber. The degreasing chamber is also provided with means for jetting out a degreasing liquid in a direction toward the inlet side of a contact area between the brushes and elongated mechanism. Elastic degreasing members are provided, respectively, at the inlet and outlet sides of the degreasing chamber to remove oil or grease from the elongated member before it enters the degreasing chamber and to wipe off any degreasing liquid remaining on the elongated member prior to passing the same into the predrying chamber.

  • Patent number: 4056428
    Abstract: An apparatus and process for etching the inner surface of a pipe or tubular member includes a primary pipe adapted to be connected with a pipe or pipes whose inner surfaces are to be treated, and treating-solution supply pipes communicating, by means of electromagnetic valves, with the aforenoted primary pipe, whereby one path for a specific solution to be fed through one of the treating-solution supply pipes by means of the primary pipe into the pipe to be treated is automatically switched to another path by means of the aforenoted electromagnetic valves, without causing mixing of one solution with another. This apparatus and process therefore provides improved operational efficiency as well as a uniform surface condition and achieves accurate dimensioning for the inner surface of the pipe to be treated.
