  • Publication number: 20210113955
    Abstract: An acid gas regenerator includes a regenerator condenser that condenses moisture from entraining gas entraining a corrosive substance and acid gas discharged from a column top portion of a regenerator that regenerates acid gas absorbent. The regenerator condenser includes: a gas discharge line that discharges the entraining gas from the column top portion of the regenerator, a cooler installed on the discharge line; a gas-liquid separator that separates CO2 gas from regenerator condensed water obtained by condensing vapor using the cooler, a reflux line that refluxes the regenerator condensed water closer to the column top portion than the rich solution introducing unit; a condensed water receiver storing the condensed water introduced by the reflux line; and a first condensed water extraction line that extracts the condensed water from a condensed water extractor of the condensed water receiver and is connected to a lean solution supply line.

  • Patent number: 10065149
    Abstract: A gas-liquid contactor is obtained by including a header pipe for supplying washing water, in a direction perpendicular to a vertical axis direction, the header pipe being disposed above a packed bed contacting section through which exhaust gas moves upward and passes; and spray nozzles for discharging spray water, the nozzles being disposed, in an upward orientation, with predetermined intervals on the header pipe. The spray water that has been discharged from the spray nozzles is supplied at a low liquid flow rate. The discharged spray water becomes a liquid film and falls downward along the surface of the header pipe, and then falls and spreads in the packed bed contacting section, so that the washing water is made to contact the exhaust gas moving upward through the packed bed contacting section. Accordingly, the washing water is used to clear and remove water-soluble substances contained in the exhaust gas.

  • Patent number: 9904272
    Abstract: A numerical controller obtains a maximum value of an impact produced in a machine during execution of a machining program, identifies an acceleration/deceleration time constant at a point where the maximum value of the impact is generated, based on command data, if the obtained value exceeds a threshold, changes the identified time constant, and recalculates a cycle time of the machining program based on the changed time constant. If the cycle time is within a preset tact time, the changed time constant is stored in advance in association with an identified command block so that it is referred to during the execution of the machining program.
