  • Patent number: 11168629
    Abstract: The present invention is one that accurately measures an exhaust gas component regardless of variation in atmospheric pressure around a test object that is a vehicle or part of it, and an exhaust gas analysis apparatus that measures component concentration in exhaust gas discharged from the test object that is the vehicle or part of it. The exhaust gas analysis apparatus includes: an exhaust gas detector that mixes the exhaust gas and reactive gas together and detects the resulting phenomenon; a pressure gauge that measures the atmospheric pressure at the time of measurement of the exhaust gas or pressure at a predetermined point inside the exhaust gas analysis apparatus as measured pressure; and a correction part that, on the basis of the measured pressure by the pressure gauge, corrects the measurement error of the exhaust gas detector associated with a variation in the supply amount of the reactive gas.

  • Publication number: 20210196641
    Abstract: A soft capsule film composition, comprising: (A) a native gellan gum; (B) one or more hydrophilic polysaccharides; (C) a starch or modified starch; (D) a plasticizer; and (E) water, wherein a gelling agent other than the native gellan gum and the one or more hydrophilic polysaccharides is not an essential component. The soft capsule film composition shortens drying time at room temperature, suppresses the stickiness of the surface of a film sheet, imparts film sheet strength which can withstand continuous production in factory manufacturing with a rotary die filling machine or the like, and enables the manufacture of a good soft capsule with high adhesiveness. For this reason, the soft capsule produced using the soft capsule film composition can be utilized for various uses such as drugs, quasi drugs, cosmetics, and foods.

  • Patent number: 10649693
    Abstract: A hard disk device accepts logical block addresses (LBAs) from a host. The hard disk device includes a disk having a plurality of physical sectors from which data is read and to which data is written, and a processor configured to perform read and write operations on the disk in response to read and write commands from the host that designate LBAs. The processor, in response to a request for initialization, does not perform any write operations on the disk, and generates a new mapping of LBAs to the physical sectors for a current generation based on unusable sectors detected during a previous generation, and tracks differences in correspondence between LBAs and the physical sectors between the current generation and the previous generation.
