  • Patent number: 9498749
    Abstract: Hydrogen chloride in superheated steam is neutralized by contacting the steam with a solution containing potassium carbonate. A solution of potassium carbonate will remain liquid when contacted by steam superheated by as much as 40° C. and, unlike sodium carbonate, the degree of superheat of a saturated solution of potassium carbonate increases with temperature. Other highly soluble potassium salts or salt inhibitors can be added to prevent precipitation of solid potassium chloride which may occur under certain conditions, or a small amount of additional water can be added to keep the potassium chloride in solution while allowing the steam to remain superheated. Injection of potassium carbonate solution downhole in a dry steam geothermal well to protect the well casing from corrosion is especially beneficial, because only a small amount of carrier water needs to be injected together with the potassium carbonate, whereby the steam remains superheated and the possibility of localized corrosion is avoided.

  • Publication number: 20140053348
    Abstract: Products and methods for ring dyeing a yarn and/or surface dyeing a fabric are provided. The product and method discloses the application of a dye binding composition including a urethane based polymer to a textile yarn, fabric, or garment. The dye binding composition is engineered so that the composition is positioned on or near the surface of the yarn, producing a ring dyed material. The dye binding composition can be colored with selective dyes that bind to the composition but generally do not have affinity for textile substrate. Garments created using this fabric can be abraded to remove surface polymer and color in different locations of the garment, creating an antiqued appearing garment. Dyes of different classifications can be used to produce novel performance and coloration effects in textile materials and garments. This process has been demonstrated on yarn (for a denim-like appearance), knitted and woven fabrics, and garments.

  • Patent number: 7838617
    Abstract: Commercial spandex can be prepared with greater efficiency, improved consistency and at lower costs from a high-solids content polyurethaneurea polymer solution. The polyurethaneurea is prepared using a combination of 4,4?-MDI and 2,4?-MDI, and an amount of chain extenders and chain terminators such that the polymer solution, prior to spinning, is highly soluble and has an appropriate pre-spun IV and primary amine content. Such spandex fibers, and the fabrics and garments comprising them, have good dyeability and colorfastness, as well as other desirable characteristics.

  • Patent number: 7799097
    Abstract: Processes for dyeing fabric are provided. The process can include continuously moving the fabric in a machine direction; removing folds or creases from the fabric; spraying a first surface of the fabric with a dye; and exposing the fabric to atmospheric steam after spraying the dye on the first surface but prior to the dye drying on the first surface so that the dye migrates from the first surface to a second surface of the fabric and reacts with and affixes to a component of the fabric.
