Leonard Seglin: Gasification of ash containing carbonaceous solids. COGAS Development Company, November 23, 1976: US03993583 (10 worldwide citation)

In the process of making synthesis gas in a fluidized bed from carbon and steam, wherein a recirculating stream of carbon from the bed is heated externally of the bed with combustion gases derived by burning carbonaceous solids taken from the bed, using all the fines separated from the synthesis gas ...

Leonard Seglin, Ralph Tracy Eddinger: Synthesis gas manufacture. Cogas Development Company, July 6, 1976: US03968052 (8 worldwide citation)

Synthesis gas is prepared by contacting coal-derived char particles with steam in a fluid-bed gasifier wherein heat for the endothermic reaction is supplied by passing through the gasifier a stream of inert pellets heated externally of the gasifier. The pellets, after leaving the gasifier, are separ ...

Gerald H Slattery, Leonard Seglin: Preparation of peracetic acid by oxidation of acetaldehyde. FMC Corporation, Charles C Fellows, Frank Ianno, January 30, 1979: US04137256 (7 worldwide citation)

This specification discloses a vapor phase process for oxidizing acetaldehyde to peracetic acid, acetic acid being also formed at the same time, in an elongated reaction zone into which oxygen is fed through a plurality of oxygen injection sites spaced along the length of the reaction zone. The reac ...
