This nursing bed has a fixed member (13A) forming a fixed bed surface of a bed portion (3) on which a care receiver (P) lies, a movable member (13B) which can be moved relative to the fixed member (13A) and forms a movable bed surface of the bed portion (3), and a movable member driving unit (5) for driving the movable member (13B). The fixed member (13A) has a plurality of slender parts each extending in the lateral direction or the longitudinal direction. The movable member (13B) has a mobile body (13B) which can be protruded upward relative to the fixed bed surface and also moved in at least one of the longitudinal direction and the lateral direction via an interval between the plurality of slender parts by the movable member driving unit (5). The posture of the care receiver lying on the bed can be changed into his/her optimal position without difficulty.

A breather device for a combustion engine includes a breather chamber in which oil mist in the combustion engine is introduced, a breather passage that guides the oil mist to the breather chamber from a crank chamber, and a blowby gas passage that guides, to an air intake passage, blowby gas having been subjected to gas-liquid separation in the breather chamber. A separator is accommodated in a blowby drawing pipe forming the blowby gas passage. The oil mist is made into droplets by the separator so that the liquid component is collected in the breather chamber.

First, an annular first layer including a plurality of beads and having a width that is not less than twice a width of the bead is formed by laser metal deposition on a peripheral surface of a base metal, the peripheral surface facing outward or inward in a radial direction. Next, a plurality of annular height raising layers each including a plurality of beads are stacked on the first layer by the laser metal deposition. According to this configuration, an axisymmetric body including a flange portion having a relatively wide width can be manufactured while making a heat affected zone in the base metal extremely small.

A carbon dioxide separation and recovery system includes an adsorption tower, a regeneration tower, and a drying tower. The adsorption tower causes a target gas to contact an adsorbent to adsorb carbon dioxide contained in the target gas to the adsorbent. The regeneration tower causes a normal-pressure wet gas which is a gas mixture of the carbon dioxide and steam to contact the adsorbent having adsorbed the carbon dioxide to desorb the carbon dioxide from the adsorbent. The drying tower dries the adsorbent. In addition, the carbon dioxide separation and recovery system includes a compressor that compresses the carbon dioxide, and an ejector that expands the carbon dioxide discharged from the compressor while suctioning negative-pressure steam, to generate the wet gas.

An exhaust system for the engine includes two exhaust pipes for discharging therethrough exhaust gases from the engine, a muffler for silencing the exhaust gases, an introducing pipe for introducing the exhaust gases into the muffler and a collecting duct for merging the exhaust gases from the two exhaust pipes together and then to introduce them into the introducing pipe. The collecting duct has a single outlet opening within an interior of the introducing pipe, which single outlet opening has a first passage area that is chosen to be smaller than the sum of respective second passage areas of discharge openings of the exhaust pipes and also to be smaller than a third passage area of the introducing pipe.
