  • Patent number: 7704915
    Abstract: A coated metal substrate useful for carrying an exhaust emission treatment catalyst such as a three-way conversion catalyst for use with small engine platforms. The coated metal substrate comprises a metal such as a stainless steel, a carbon steel, a FeCr alloy, HASTELLOY® and the like. The coating on the metal substrate comprises an alumina silicate having alumina particles impregnated therein. The coating is applied using a liquid dispersion containing an aluminum silicate and the alumina particles are dispersed into the aluminum silicate coating while the coating is still wet. The coated metal substrate is then calcined. Thereafter, a washcoat containing an engine exhaust treatment catalyst may be applied to the surface of the coated metal substrate.

  • Patent number: 5546478
    Abstract: The present invention is a picture print controlling device. Complex image signals which are input to the device are stored in memory and a picture is displayed on a monitor and/or is printed on a photographic paper. The addresses of a printed picture corresponding to a predetermined area of the monitor screen are separated from the remaining addresses of the screen and stored in designated addresses so that just the picture of the predetermined area can be printed and the remainder of the picture may not printed. If printed, data of the designated addresses are sequentially read to be printed. Furthermore, a user can choose the size and location of the predetermined area of the selected cut partial picture. In addition, the device of this invention may be applied to a picture print device such as a color video printer.

  • Patent number: 5490400
    Abstract: A clothes washing machine includes an outer tank, a plurality of vertical suspenders hung by their upper ends adjacent respective corners of the tank, and a water container disposed within the tank and supported at lower ends of the suspenders. The upper ends of the suspenders are secured to a cover member which is attached to an upper end of the tank. The upper end of each suspender projects through a rib-reinforced hole formed in the cover and is secured to the cover by a cap-pin fastener device. A unit constituted by the cover, suspenders, and water container can be tested prior to being installed in the tank.

  • Patent number: 5457230
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for removing iodine compounds from acetic acid, in which the iodine compound is removed by using a solid adsorbent in the form of an activated carbon fiber having a large strength, a large bulk density, and a large specific surface, so that the treatment of large amounts should be possible, that the acetic acid should not be contaminated during the extraction of foreign materials from the adsorbent, and that the adsorbent can be repeatedly used by regenerating it. The method includes the steps of: preparing a filter in the usual manner by using an activated carbon fiber as the adsorbent; and making acetic acid containing an iodide pass through the activated carbon fiber filter, whereby the iodide in acetic acid is removed by being adsorbed by the activated carbon fiber filter.

  • Patent number: 5291313
    Abstract: Disclosed is an automatic contrast correction method and apparatus for optimizing contrast of a picture screen. There is included an effective picture screen extractor for extracting video data corresponding to the effective picture screen among video data in the picture screen, a plurality of amplifiers for receiving the video data and amplifying the received video data for output, and a microcomputer for comparing the average value which is calculated from the video data of the effective picture screen with a previously set reference value and regulating an amplification factor by supplying a control signal to the amplifiers according to the comparison result. Even if video images photographed toward the sun are printed, it can be prevented from being printed in a dark state, thereby obtaining a good quality of picture.
