  • Patent number: 10388956
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a carbonaceous molded article for electrodes having high charge/discharge capacity, high initial charge/discharge efficiency, and excellent cycle life without a polymeric binder. The above object can be achieved by the carbonaceous molded article for electrodes of the present invention comprising a carbon fiber nonwoven fabric, the article having a thickness of not greater than 1 mm, an atomic ratio (H/C) of hydrogen atoms and carbon atoms according to elemental analysis of not greater than 0.1, a porosity determined from a bulk density and a butanol true density of the molded article of 25 to 80%, and a volatile content of not greater than 5.0 wt %.

  • Publication number: 20130153838
    Abstract: A clamper (23) is inserted into a tube member (132) disposed in a tube plate (137) and clamps the tube member (132). Further, the clamper (23) includes a clamp mechanism (231) which has a contact portion (2311b) that contacts the tube plate (137) or the tube member (132) and inserts an insertion portion (2311a) into the tube member (132) so as to clamp the tube member (132) and a lifting and lowering mechanism (232) which lifts and lowers the clamp mechanism (231) in the insertion direction of the insertion portion (2311a).
