A body made up of substantially continuous high strength multicellular support having porous cell walls, and pores in the cell walls having an average pore diameter of which have active material embedded therein, and an outer surface. The body is made of material which can be ceramics, glass, glass-ceramic, cermet, metal, oxides, and combinations of these. The active material can be molecular sieve, activated carbon, and combinations these. A method for producing a pore-impregnated body which involves providing the substrate having a wall porosity greater than about 45% by volume, and an average pore diameter of about 15 to 30 micrometers, providing a slurry of active material dispersed in a medium, contacting the support with the slurry at subatmospheric pressure to substantially fill the open pores of the substrate with the active material, removing excess slurry from the outer surface and the non-pore surfaces of the cell walls, followed by drying.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
