  • Publication number: 20190327991
    Abstract: Provided are a concentrated fermented milk and a production method therefor, in particular, a concentrated fermented milk having an increased viscosity and a production method therefor. Also provided are a two-layer-type fermented dairy product and a production method therefor. A production method for fermented milk which includes: cooling fermented milk after concentrating; and storing the fermented milk at a predetermined temperature for a predetermined period of time to increase a viscosity of the fermented milk. A production method for a two-layer-type fermented dairy product, which includes a layer of a sauce containing fruit pulp and/or fruit juice on fermented milk and is contained in a container, which includes: supplying the fermented milk into the container at a supplying temperature of 15° C. or less; and supplying the sauce on the fermented milk after the supplying of the fermented milk.

  • Publication number: 20190239525
    Abstract: To provide a bilayer-type fermented milk product that is able to maintain a sharp interface between a fermented milk layer and a foodstuff layer without adding a gelling agent, such as low-methoxyl pectin and gelatin, to the fermented milk layer. This fermented milk product has a foodstuff layer formed as an upper layer of a fermented milk layer, wherein: the foodstuff layer has added thereto a low-methoxyl pectin having an esterification degree of less than 50; the fermented milk layer is configured to have a viscosity of 3500 cp or more; and a value obtained by subtracting the Brix value of the fermented milk layer from the Brix value of the foodstuff layer is adjusted to 21 or less.

  • Publication number: 20060068996
    Abstract: A grease composition for use in ball type constant velocity joints, which comprises the following components a base oil; a diurea thickener of the formula: R1—NH—CO—NH—C6H4-p-CH2—C6H4-p-NH—CO—NHR2 wherein R1 and R2 are alkyl groups having 8 carbon atoms, molybdenum disulfide; molybdenum dithiocarbamate of the formula: (R3R4N—CS—S)2—Mo2OmSn wherein R3 and R4 independently represent an alkyl group having 1 to 24 carbon atoms, m is 0 to 3, n is 4 to 1 and m+n=4, calcium salts or overbasic calcium salts of petroleum sulfonates, sulfur-phosphorus extreme pressure agent, and castor oil. The grease composition exhibits excellent wear-resistance and pitting-inhibitory effect.

  • Patent number: 6974259
    Abstract: A vehicle-use bearing device having a double row rolling bearing fitted around an outer peripheral surface of a hollow shaft portion of a hub wheel, wherein a held portion between an axially intermediate position and a vehicle outer side in the hollow shaft portion of the hub wheel is axially held between the axially intermediate position of an outer ring shaft portion of a constant velocity joint and the vehicle outer side so that a cup-shaped cylindrical portion of an outer ring of the constant velocity joint is free of contact with a caulked portion in the hollow shaft portion of the hub wheel at the shaft end on the vehicle inner side in order to connect the hub wheel with the constant velocity joint without a clearance, whereby an excessive preload which can affect a rolling performance of the double row rolling bearing is not imparted on the bearing.

  • Patent number: 6550975
    Abstract: In a construction in which a double row rolling bearing and a constant velocity joint are mounted to a hub wheel, a fixing ring fixedly mounted to a vehicle-outer side opening of the hub wheel is sandwiched between a vehicle-outer side end face of an outer ring shaft of the constant velocity joint and a bolt integrally mounted to the shaft in the axial direction, thereby coupling the outer ring of the constant velocity joint to the hub wheel. In this case, a simple coupling operation only for mounting the bolt to the shaft suffices, and a pre-load that has been applied to the rolling bearing is maintained invariably.
