Title: Filter and method of fabricating

Abstract

A method of making a filter includes the steps of: providing a substrate having a porous surface; applying to the porous surface a coating of dry powder comprising particles to form a filter preform; and heating the filter preform to bind the substrate and the particles together to form a filter.

  • A method of fabricating a nanoporous membrane filter having a uniform array of nanopores etch-formed in a thin film structure (e.g. (100)-oriented single crystal silicon) having a predetermined thickness, by (a) using interferometric lithography to create an etch pattern comprising a plurality array of unit patterns having a predetermined width/diameter, (b) using the etch pattern to etch frustum-shaped cavities or pits in the thin film structure such that the dimension of the frustum floors of the cavities are substantially equal to a desired pore size based on the predetermined thickness of the thin film structure and the predetermined width/diameter ofmore » the unit patterns, and (c) removing the frustum floors at a boundary plane of the thin film structure to expose, open, and thereby create the nanopores substantially having the desired pore size.« less
  • This patent describes a frame adapted to surround and sealably support a generally rectangular filter pack or the like and which comprises four separate side panels which are interconnected in an end to end, rectangular arrangement. In the improvement described here the adjacent end edges of adjacent side panels are effectively sealed along their interface and: each of the separate side panels of the frame includes opposite side edges extending in the lengthwise direction, opposite end edges, inner and outer faces, and at least one pair of channel forming means overlying the outer face of the panel and extending inmore » the lengthwise direction and cooperating with the outer face of the panel to define a lengthwise extending slot between the pair of channel forming means, and with the slot of each side panel communicating in right angles relationship with the slots of the adjacent side panels, and at least one corner plate interconnecting each of the adjacent end edges of adjacent side panels, with each of the corner plates comprising a pair of flanges disposed at right angles to each other in cross section and so as to define a bight at the intersection of the flanges, and a recess formed in such corner plate which extends along substantially the entire length of the bight and continuously along at least the medial portion thereof, with the recess having a sealing material therein, and with the flanges being closely received within respective ones of the slots of the associated side panels to interlock the corners and such that the sealing material serves to seal the adjacent end edges of the adjacent side panels.« less
  • An electrochemically active hydrogen diffusion barrier which comprises an anode layer, a cathode layer, and an intermediate electrolyte layer, which is conductive to protons and substantially impermeable to hydrogen. A catalytic metal present in or adjacent to the anode layer catalyzes an electrochemical reaction that converts any hydrogen that diffuses through the electrolyte layer to protons and electrons. The protons and electrons are transported to the cathode layer and reacted to form hydrogen. The hydrogen diffusion barrier is applied to a polymeric substrate used in a storage tank to store hydrogen under high pressure. A storage tank equipped with themore » electrochemically active hydrogen diffusion barrier, a method of fabricating the storage tank, and a method of preventing hydrogen from diffusing out of a storage tank are also disclosed.« less
