  • Patent number: 6637469
    Abstract: A container for holding a solid, liquid and/or gaseous phase product therein and for use within a transportable or stationary support structure. The container maximizes the compressed product volume contained therein and prevents liquid and/or contaminant entrainment during gaseous product delivery from liquid phase product. The system allows for product withdraw when the level is above the delivery valves using, at a minimum, two delivery legs linked by a compartment or housing that connects the delivery point and a container head space via a removable manway.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 19, 2002
    Date of Patent: October 28, 2003
    Assignee: Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.

  • Publication number: 20030178093
    Abstract: A system for the transportation and storage of a product comprising a tank including a cylindrical wall section and two ends which define a cylindrical tank periphery, wherein the tank periphery has an interior and an exterior; a recessed valve box including one or more side walls, a bottom wall, and a removable, sealable top cover which can be attached to the one or more side walls to seal the valve box, wherein the valve box side walls are sealably joined to the cylindrical wall section such that the valve box extends through the cylindrical wall section into the interior of the tank periphery and is partially or totally disposed in the interior of the tank periphery; and one or more valves disposed in the valve box.

  • Patent number: 6616769
    Abstract: A process and system for conditioning a bulk container for ultra-high purity liquefied gas. Vapor is generated in the container from a conditioning quantity of the ultra-high purity liquefied gas by imposing a temperature difference on the container so that the vapor condenses when a temperature difference is achieved. The resulting liquid reflux, e.g., the condensed liquid drips or flows back to the conditioning quantity of the liquified gas, washes or removes contaminants, e.g., particles, metal and moisture, from the interior surface of the container. A portion of the vapor is vented from the container for reclamation. The used conditioning liquid may also be reclaimed.

  • Patent number: 6614009
    Abstract: A high flow rate, transportable, ultra high purity gas vaporization and supply system is provided which includes a vessel suitable for carrying large quantities of a liquefied gas, valves to operate with liquid or gas phases, a loading/unloading unit disposed on the vessel for loading and unloading the liquefied gas to be supplied, and a heater containing heating elements permanently positioned on the vessel to supply energy into the liquefied gas. The heater causes the liquefied gas to be supplied through the loading/unloading unit as a gas. A heater controller is also provided which uses process variables feedback for regulating the heating elements to maintain and regulate gas output.

  • Patent number: 5871343
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for reducing NOx production during air-oxygen-fuel combustion by providing a central core of fuel surrounded by a sheath of oxygen at a combustion end of an air-oxygen-fuel burner. Diametrically opposed air passages are provided on either side of the oxygen sheath to permit entrainment of furnace gases into a flame zone created by primary combustion of fuel and oxygen. Oxygen can be introduced into each air passage to enhance combustion with low NOx emissions.
