  • Patent number: 10328385
    Abstract: A pump housing of the carbon dioxide-containing gas recovery apparatus is formed with a first chamber and a second chamber partitioned by a partition wall. The first and second chambers and communicate with each other through a third chamber. The first chamber communicates with a water supply opening and a carbon dioxide-containing gas inlet. When blown against water filling the first chamber, a carbon dioxide-containing gas is dissolved in the water, and the carbon dioxide-containing gas remaining undissolved exists as bubbles in the water. When a pair of six-blade rotors oppositely disposed on two axes and in the third chamber compress the bubbles to be refined into different bubbles, the carbon dioxide-containing gas can further be dissolved in the water by a compression action. An aqueous solution of carbon dioxide-containing gas is discharged from a water outlet communicating with the second chamber.

    Abstract: [Problem] Providing a carbon dioxide-containing gas recovery-apparatus which is low in cost and can improve a carbon dioxide-containing gas recovery efficiency. [Overcoming Means] A pump housing 11 of the carbon dioxide-containing gas recovery apparatus 10 is formed with a first chamber 23 and a second chamber 26 partitioned by a partition wall 20a. The first and second chambers 23 and 26 communicate with each other through a third chamber 20. The first chamber 23 communicates with a water supply opening and a carbon dioxide-containing gas inlet. When blown against water filling the first chamber, a carbon dioxide-containing gas is dissolved in the water, and the carbon dioxide-containing gas remaining undissolved exists as bubbles A in the water. When a pair of six-blade rotors 40 oppositely disposed on two axes 41a and 41b in the third chamber 20 compress the bubbles A to be refined into bubbles B, the carbon dioxide-containing gas can further be dissolved in the water by a compression action.

  • Patent number: 8961658
    Abstract: A mist/dust collector includes a tank body, a recovery tank having a demister member, a spraying unit spraying water or coolant fluid from a nozzle, an impeller mounted on a main shaft located in the tank body, so as to be rotatable by air flow, a disc rotary brush and a shaking-off member mounted on the shaft. A suction unit is actuated to draw air containing mist and dust into the tank body interior maintained in a negative pressure state. The impeller is rotated by collision of water or coolant fluid at a predetermined pressure, and the rotary brush and the shaking-off member are rotated simultaneously with the impeller, so that mist and dust are separated from air by a centrifugal action of the rotary brush and the shaking-off member. Mist and dust remaining in the air flowing into the recovery tank are collected by the demister member.
