||PCT/BR2013/000485||PETRÓLEO BRASILEIRO S.A. - PETROBRAS||LOGLI, Marco Antonio|
The present invention relates to a catalyst for steam reforming processes, especially for the low-temperature water gas shift reaction step of steam reforming processes. The catalyst is constituted of copper, zinc and aluminium oxides, and has a sodium content from 200 ppm to 1200 ppm. The use of these catalysts in the LTS step reduces the formation of byproducts, in particular methanol, while retaining high activity and stability of the conversion reaction of carbon monoxide with steam.
WO/2015/070299 PROPULSION ENGINE MOVED BY TERRESTRIAL GRAVITY||WO||21.05.2015|
||PCT/BR2013/000493||RAYMOND GILL, Frederick||RAYMOND GILL, Frederick|
The present description relates to a propulsion engine for generating motive power which is started and continued by a force provided by heavier-than-air bodies falling freely from a certain distance from the Earth's surface, which inevitably fall or slide downwards, creating a vertical downward force called terrestrial gravity. The discharge of the power-increasing element (15) from the outer load module (34), which supports the upper cyclone/store (22) of power-increasing element (15), is controlled by a rotary metering/sizing valve (23), the power-increasing element (15) being discharged by means of a bucket (24) and its injection nozzle (25) into multiple spaced apart and symmetrically aligned bodies/pistons (2), which are attached and hinged to revolving drive chains (9) which tangentially engage idle gear (8) supported by the idle gear shaft (6) and tangentially engage the drive gears (5) supported by the drive shaft (11) which in turn is linked by the motive power transfer/linking belt, in parallel to the control module (35), to the speed controller/reducer (14) which co-operates with the speed accelerator (16), the motive power of which is linked by transfer belts (17) to the electrical generator/alternator (18).

||PCT/BR2014/000410||SíMEROS PROJETOS ELETROMECÂNICOS LTDA||BERTONI, Fabiano|
The present invention proposes a method for producing the configuration of a tensile armour (54, 55) of a flexible pipe (50), the method comprising an offset-producing step in which the end region (551a) of each wire (551) of the outer tensile armour (55) of the flexible pipe (50) is cut out, as well as the end region (541a) of each wire (541) of the inner tensile armour (54) of the flexible pipe (50), producing an offset between the end region (551b) of each wire (551) of the outer tensile armour (55) after the cut and the end region (541b) of each wire (541) of the inner tensile armour (54) after the cut, the offset having a suitable length (L) to allow a shaping step to be carried out, during which the end region (541b) after the cut of at least one wire (541) of the inner tensile armour (54) is shaped, so as to produce a shaped end region (541c) with an anchoring profile. The present invention also proposes a configuration for a tensile armour (54, 55) of a flexible pipe (50) produced by the above method. According to the proposed solution, after the wires (551) of the outer tensile armour (55) are cut with an offset relative to the wires (541) of the inner tensile armour (54), likewise after the latter are cut, the wires (541) of the inner tensile armour (54) are exposed and can be easily accessed in order to shape the end regions (541b) thereof after the cut, without the need to fold back the wires (551) of the outer tensile armour (55).

WO/2015/070302 COMBINED-CYCLE COMBUSTION ENGINE METHOD AND COMBINED-CYCLE COMBUSTION ENGINE||WO||21.05.2015|
||PCT/BR2014/000393||MASSAO, Sakai||MASSAO, Sakai|
The present invention relates to a petrol- or diesel-cycle internal combustion engine assembled along with an energy and water recovery system for the Rankine cycle. In a first innovation, the high-pressure steam, preferably above critical pressure, is injected into the combustion chambers (20) at the end of the compression stroke (C), reducing the combustion temperature and increasing the internal pressure of the cylinder. In a second innovation, the low-pressure steam is used as motive steam in an ejector (7) used for the forced suction and discharge of the exhaust gases. In the third innovation, the low-pressure saturated condensate is injected on completion of the exhaust stroke (E) to assist the discharge of the residual combustion gases and control the temperature in the compression stroke (C). The fourth innovation is the reuse of the heat generated in the catalytic converter in the high- and low-pressure steam generation systems. Finally, in the fifth innovation, before the gases are discharged into the atmosphere, a condensor (15) is used to recover water and to wash the exhaust gases, retaining the particulate matter contained in the combustion gases. The present invention indicates a gain in output power of up to 59%, with an increase in thermal efficiency of up to 54% compared to a conventional petrol engine.
