  • Patent number: 10630159
    Abstract: A magnetic coupling rotor includes permanent magnets arranged at equal angular spacings about its axis of rotation, wherein they respectively face radially inwardly and radially outwardly with their pole faces, of which a respective one bears against a backiron body of ferromagnetic material. The backiron body is a cylindrical ring with smooth peripheral surfaces. Provided for the permanent magnets is a holding device comprising a not or only weakly magnetizable injection-moldable material in the form of a rotary-symmetrical body having recesses for receiving the permanent magnets. The diameters of the holding means and the backiron body are such that they can be fitted together coaxially such that the backiron body at least partially covers the recesses in a radial direction. Thus, formed between it and the holding means is an even number of insertion compartments into which permanent magnets may be inserted.

  • Patent number: 10596720
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing wood materials from lignocellulose-containing crushed products, in particular for producing wooden insulating panels or OSB boards, wherein in order to decrease or reduce the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and, if relevant, very volatile organic compounds (VVOC), including terpenes, acids and aldehydes, said wood materials are treated with a combination of additives during production. According to the invention, the treatment is carried out with a first component made of porous carbon and a second component, a hydrogen sulphite salt. The invention further relates to wood materials that can be obtained using the method according to the invention, having reduced emissions of VOCs, including terpenes, acids and aldehydes.
