  • Patent number: 10668427
    Abstract: An acid gas recovery method includes removing acid gas from a target gas by bringing the target gas containing the acid gas into gas-liquid contact with an absorbent amine solution and causing the absorbent amine solution to absorb the acid gas; regenerating the absorbent amine solution by releasing the acid gas from the absorbent amine solution that has absorbed the acid gas; causing a chelate resin to adsorb iron ions from the absorbent amine solution by causing the absorbent amine solution to pass through the chelate resin; causing a regenerant solution to pass through a chelate resin having iron ions adsorbed thereon; regenerating the chelate resin and obtaining a regenerant solution containing the iron ions and quantitatively measuring the iron ions in the regenerant solution containing the iron ions and calculating a concentration of iron ions in the absorbent amine solution.

  • Publication number: 20200040175
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a ring-shaped sealing member having both the sealing property and slidability. [Solving Means] A sealing member is formed in a ring shape and has a sliding surface. The sealing member includes: 100 parts by weight of fluorine rubber; and 0.5 to 50 (inclusive) parts by weight of a particulate resin. The particulate resin includes a compatible portion and a lubrication portion, the compatible portion having compatibility with the fluorine rubber, the lubrication portion having lubricity with respect to the fluorine rubber. A Shore A hardness measured using the sliding surface as a pressing surface is not less than 80. In this sealing member, since rubber elasticity is achieved by the fluorine rubber, a favorable sealing property can be realized. Further, it is possible to impart high slidability to the sealing member by the action of the lubrication portion of the particulate resin. Therefore, this sealing member has both the sealing property and slidability.

  • Publication number: 20200001401
    Abstract: According to a laser cutting method, a processed part is laser-cut so that the processed part doesn't drop off from a sheet-shaped workpiece. In the laser cutting method, a cut slit of a pressing protrusion, which is curved due to a laser cutting process along an outline of the processed part and then presses a peripheral surface of the processed part, is preliminarily formed around the processed part to be cut out from the workpiece. Then, the laser cutting process is carried out along the outline of the processed part. The pressing protrusion curves toward the processed part due to the laser cutting process of the processed part, and then the processed part is retained by the pressing protrusion.

  • Publication number: 20190359032
    Abstract: A radiant heater device has an electrode embedded in a substrate part and a plurality of heating parts. The electrodes are formed by material that has low specific resistance. An area occupied by the electrode is restricted. The heating parts are formed by material having high specific resistance in order to generate heat so that radiation is produced. The electrode and the heating part are electrically connected within the substrate part. The plurality of heating parts are arranged in parallel between a pair of electrodes. The electrodes and the heating parts are formed in a film-like shape, and the thermal capacity is reduced. As a result, a temperature of the heating parts rises promptly in response to a turning on of power. In addition, the temperature of the heating parts promptly decreases when an object comes into contact therewith.
