  • Patent number: 6825289
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a production method of chemical reactive substances with stable quality by which solidification, gel formation, and the resulting blockade within material injection nozzles are prevented, and contamination of a reaction system with the gelled matter is prevented, as well as occurrence of problems on a production process due to the gelled matter is suppressed, when the chemical reactive substances are produced by injecting the liquid materials containing reactive substances having unsaturated double bonds into the reaction vessel through the material injection nozzles of the reaction vessel. The present invention is a production method of a chemical reactive substance which comprises injecting a liquid material containing a reactive substance having an unsaturated double bond into a reaction vessel through a material injection nozzle of said reaction vessel and causing a reaction at a reaction temperature of not less than 50° C.

  • Patent number: 6589442
    Abstract: A stable concentrated dust control composition comprises a mixture of crude tall oil and vegetable oil emulsified in water. The dust control composition is completely organic, non-corrosive, non-flammable, non-toxic, ecologically safe, readily dilutable with water, safe to use, easy to apply to a desired surface and environmentally responsible. The water soluble formula may be designed to penetrate into the surfaces to bind with surface materials to create a dust free durable surface safe to motorists. The composition suspresses dust, so it is unable to be picked up and be carried away by wind and water, therefore preventing soil erosion and damage to field crops. The composition also reduces airborne dust that carries disease causing pollutants that are transported to distant communities.

  • Patent number: 6582627
    Abstract: A highly stable liquid formulation having broad spectrum preservative properties which constitutes an admixture of an alkanol-substituted DMH, an iodopropynyl compound, a stabilizer of a hydantoin, urea or derivative thereof, and a hydroxyl solvent. Preferably the constituents are dimethyloldimethylhydantoin, 3-iodo-2-propynyl-butyl carbamate, dimethylhydantoin, and a glycol solvent. The preservative preferably has a total formaldehyde content of 5% and less than 0.2% of free formaldehyde. The composition is prepared by successively admixing the alkanol-substituted dimethyl-hydantoin and the stabilizer, the hydroxyl solvent, and the iodopropynyl compound. Also described is a stabilized iodopropynyl compound preferably containing dimethylhydantoin as the stabilizer.

  • Patent number: 6558705
    Abstract: Parent disclosure, now U.S. Pat. No. 6,303,133 B1, taught a calcium hydroxide containing evaporation retardant having particles that mutually repel one another because of water-induced ionization. Calcium hydroxide makes the retardant unsuitable for treating overly alkaline agricultural soil, and to substitute plain calcium sulfate for calcium hydroxide would degrade the particle repulsion effect. Substitutable acidified gypsum is made by absorbing about 5 milliliters sulfuric acid per 300 grams calcium sulfate. Blending unemulsified detergent range alcohol in a parts by weight ratio of about one-to-ten with the acidified gypsum produces a soil treatment product for suppressing evaporation of water from treated soil without impairing water infiltration into the same soil.
