  • Patent number: 10058025
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to an in-line soluble media delivery system. In at least one embodiment, the system may comprise a housing including an inlet port and an outlet port. The inlet port may accept a liquid flow (e.g., water). A soluble media (e.g., fertilizer, herbicide, pesticide, etc.) in the delivery system may be exposed to the liquid flow, and may dissolve in the liquid over time. At least one filter may allow the liquid flow, now comprising at least some of the gradually dissolving media, to exit the system without allowing the bulk of the soluble media to exit. In at least one embodiment the system may comprise two filters with different porosity.

  • Patent number: 9956723
    Abstract: Provided is a joint treatment method that enables smooth joint treatment without damaging the ultraviolet radiation curable resin formed on the interior sheet surface. The joint treatment method is for joining a butt joint portion of interior sheets, the protective layer being formed as a surface layer of each of the interior sheets. The method includes: (1) a step of injecting a joint treatment agent, which has no dissolving ability with respect to at least the protective layer, into the butt joint portion; and (2) a step of attaching, before the injected joint treatment agent is cured, an adhesive tape so as to straddle the butt joint portion such that the tape is in contact with the protective layer and the joint treatment agent present in the butt joint portion.

  • Patent number: 9737851
    Abstract: In a process for manufacturing a catalytic converter component, a ceramic unit is used that has been prepared by extruding green ceramic product through a die to form an extrusion having a honeycomb substrate structure in which tubular passages extend along the extrusion, the passages bounded by walls dividing adjacent passages from one another. The unit is obtained by cutting off a length of the extrusion and curing and firing it. The process further comprises flowing insulation material from one end of the unit into selected ones of the elongate passages, vaporizing a moisture content of the insulation material to form pores and curing the insulation material by using microwave irradiation to solidify the pores. The passages are selected so that the cured insulation material forms an internal thermal insulating barrier between a core zone of the unit and a radially outer zone of the unit.
