|20120192712||HYDROGEN SEPARATION MEMBRANE AND METHOD FOR SEPARATING HYDROGEN - Provided is a novel hydrogen separation membrane formed of a Nb—W—Mo-based alloy. A method for separating hydrogen using the hydrogen separation membrane and hydrogen separation conditions are selected by a particular procedure. A hydrogen separation membrane formed of the Nb—W—Mo-based alloy membrane. A method for separating hydrogen using the Nb—W—Mo-based alloy membrane and the conditions for separating hydrogen using the Nb —W—Mo-based alloy membrane are set by measuring the hydrogen pressure P of a hydrogen atmosphere for the Nb—W—Mo-based alloy membrane and the dissolved hydrogen content C of the Nb—W—Mo-based alloy membrane at a temperature T; generating a PCT curve associating the temperature T, the hydrogen pressure P, and the dissolved hydrogen content C on the basis of actual measurement data about the three requirements; and setting operating temperature and primary and secondary hydrogen pressure conditions by determining the relationship between the dissolved hydrogen content C and the brittle fracture of the Nb—W—Mo-based alloy membrane on the basis of the PCT curve to evaluate critical dissolved hydrogen content related to hydrogen embrittlement resistance.||08-02-2012|
|20120118586||DEVICE AND METHOD FOR SEQUESTERING A SUBSTANCE - There are provided a carbon dioxide storage apparatus and a carbon dioxide storage method which, through direct injection of carbon dioxide into an underground brine aquifer, can store carbon dioxide efficiently in the brine aquifer. A filter formed of, for example, grindstone is provided at a tip portion of an injection well. A pumping apparatus pumps carbon dioxide stored in a carbon dioxide tank. The pumping apparatus feeds carbon dioxide from the carbon dioxide tank into the injection well by means of a pump. In the pumping apparatus, carbon dioxide is held within a predetermined pressure range and a predetermined temperature range. Carbon dioxide is fed through the injection well, and is injected into a brine aquifer. Carbon dioxide injected into the brine aquifer assumes the form of microbubbles.||05-17-2012|
|20120068454||PIPE JOINT - A pipe joint comprising a pressing nut into which a flexible pipe is inserted, a joint body into which the pressing nut is partially inserted, a resilient means unlocked when pushed by a tip end of the flexible pipe, a sealing member, a retainer engaging the flexible pipe, and an engaging mechanism keeping the pressing nut at a predetermined position in the joint body; the engaging mechanism comprising a stop ring, an annular groove formed on an outer surface of the pressing nut for receiving the stop ring, pluralities of engaging grooves formed on an inner surface of the joint body for receiving the stop ring and communicating with each other; the stop ring engaging both of the annular groove and the first engaging groove before the connection of the flexible pipe is completed; and when the flexible pipe is pulled after completing the connection, the stop ring moving from the first engaging groove to the second engaging groove to draw the pressing nut from the joint body, so that the normal connection of the flexible pipe can be confirmed.||03-22-2012|
|20110223501||HYDROGEN-RECYCLING MCFC POWER-GENERATING SYSTEM - Provided is a hydrogen-recycling MCFC power-generating system that can improve power generation efficiency by effectively utilizing fuel gas having the hydrogen included in anode exhaust as the main component, and that can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide discharged by separating and recovering the carbon dioxide. The system is provided with a molten carbonate fuel cell (||09-15-2011|
