  • Patent number: 10400175
    Abstract: Embodiments of apparatuses and methods for controlling heat for rapid thermal processing of carbonaceous material are provided herein. The apparatus comprises a reheater for containing a fluidized bubbling bed comprising an oxygen-containing gas, inorganic heat carrier particles, and char and for burning the char into ash to form heated inorganic particles. An inorganic particle cooler is in fluid communication with the reheater to receive a first portion of the heated inorganic particles. The inorganic particle cooler is configured to receive a cooling medium for indirect heat exchange with the first portion of the heated inorganic particles to form first partially-cooled heated inorganic particles that are fluidly communicated to the reheater and combined with a second portion of the heated inorganic particles to form second partially-cooled heated inorganic particles. A reactor is in fluid communication with the reheater to receive the second partially-cooled heated inorganic particles.

  • Patent number: 6732747
    Abstract: An improved composition and method for cleaning and disinfecting a garbage disposal that does not require aerosol propellants or carbon dioxide gas generating reaction systems. The composition comprises a suds stabilizing surfactant and a disinfecting agent, plus other optional ingredients such as additional detergent surfactant and scouring agents. In the method of cleaning and disinfecting, a flow of water is provided to the garbage disposal and the composition is then added while the garbage disposal is turned on. The mechanical action of the garbage disposal grinder blades rapidly mixes the composition with water to create suds and disperse the suds around the entire interior chamber, thus cleansing and disinfecting the garbage disposal. After the suds are generated, the flow of water is discontinued, with the garbage disposal being turned off within about 1 minute after the flow of water is discontinued.

  • Patent number: 6673762
    Abstract: A contaminated surface polishing-washing detergent composition comprises a polishing media and a dispersion medium wherein at least a part of the polishing media is made of a fine powder of an RB ceramic and/or CRB ceramic. The composition is effective in polishing-washing the surfaces of a precision-worked base material, and after the polishing-washing, the particles of metal oxides and the particles of removed burrs and the cutting metal chips are simply separated from the composition by use of the difference in specific gravity to re-use it by recycling.

  • Patent number: 6653267
    Abstract: The present invention provides an aqueous dispersion for chemical mechanical polishing suitable for polishing of copper, which has a high polishing speed and a low erosion rate with overpolishing. The aqueous dispersion for chemical mechanical polishing of the invention contains a compound having a heterocycle, a surfactant and an oxidizing agent, wherein the compound having a heterocycle and the surfactant are in a weight ratio of 1:10 to 1:0.03. The aqueous dispersion may also contain abrasive particle. The compound having a heterocycle is preferably quinaldic acid, benzotriazole or the like. The surfactant is preferably a sulfonic acid salt such as potassium dodecylbenzenesulfonate or ammonium dodecylbenzenesulfonate, and the oxidizing agent is preferably ammonium persulfate, hydrogen peroxide or the like. The abrasive particle used may be inorganic particle such as colloidal silica, an organic particle such as polymer particle, or an organic/inorganic composite particle comprising a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 6617295
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition which can be utilized to induce foaming of a resin or polymeric material in polymer processing machinery. The composition of the present invention includes a blowing agent which decomposes and evolves gases thereby causing the polymeric material to foam. The compositions of the present invention allow for reductions in part weight, cycle times and injection pressure.
