Abstract: A drilling apparatus has a work robot mounting a drilling blade and moving inside a main pipe and a photodetector for detecting the contour of an opening image formed on the inner surface of a pipe lining material by illumination light. The opening image is scanned, and a two-dimensional image corresponding to the opening image is generated based on the contour points P0 to P8 detected by the photodetector for display on a display unit. The amount of positional deviation between the center of the two-dimensional image on the display unit and the axial center C of the rotary shaft of the drilling blade is calculated, and the pipe lining material is drilled by moving the drilling blade by the amount of positional deviation in a direction in which the positional deviation is eliminated.
Abstract: An evaporator includes a fluid chamber in which a working fluid flows. A condenser includes a gas-phase portion in which the working fluid evaporated in the evaporator flows and a liquid-phase portion in which the working fluid from the gas-phase portion, condensed by heat exchange with an external medium, flows. A gas-phase passage causes the working fluid evaporated in the evaporator to flow to the condenser. A liquid-phase passage causes the working fluid condensed in the condenser to flow to the evaporator. A bypass passage has one end connected to the liquid-phase portion of the condenser or the liquid-phase passage and another end connected to the gas-phase portion of the condenser or the gas-phase passage. A flow rate of a liquid-phase working fluid per unit volume in the bypass passage is smaller than a flow rate of a liquid-phase working fluid per unit volume in the liquid-phase portion of the condenser or the liquid-phase passage.
