February 10, 2015Development of Mistmeister, a Solution for Oil Mist in Factories
February 10, 2015 - SHINRYO CORPORATION (“SHINRYO”) has developed Mistmeister, a technology for tackling the problem of oil mist in factories. This technology provides a highly effective analytical approach for diagnosing and addressing the problem of oil mist.
Oil mist is a common problem in the productive processes of factories. In plants where oil is forced through narrow spaces or comes into contact with hot surfaces, oil droplets can become suspended in the factory air, posing a danger to workers’ health and adversely affecting product yield. Current measures against oil mist suffer from a number of problems. In the ventilation approach, outside air is forced into the plant. This approach requires processing of the outside air, increasing energy consumption and swelling running costs. Electric dust collectors can be installed at relatively low running cost, but establishing the right installation position and airflow can be tricky; if these are not incorrect, effectiveness in oil-mist removal can be seriously compromised. Achieving an effective solution against oil mist requires an accurate grasp of how the oil mist is generated. Until now, technologies for this purpose have been lacking, and accurately measuring oil-droplet concentration has proven difficult. SHINRYO developed the Mistmeister to address these issues, delivering a comprehensive solution to the problem of oil mist.
The Mistmeister is an oil-mist solution developed by SHINRYO. It combines a measurement technology, which accurately quantifies the concentration of oil droplets in the air, with an analytical technology called computational fluid dynamics (CFD), which draws on the measured values to build a highly accurate numerical simulation of mist behavior. Based on actual measurements of oil-mist concentration in the factory, the generated volume of oil mist is calculated and entered into the calculation parameters for CFD analysis. The resulting CFD analysis is highly accurate, delivering accurate reproduction of the distribution of oil-mist concentration in the factory air. The Mistmeister thus serves as a diagnostic tool, enabling factory management to pinpoint the source of the oil and causes of its dispersion, leading to the formation of an accurate and effective solution.
The Mistmeister operates by a three-step process as described below.
1.Measurement of oil mist using the latest instruments
The Mistmeister uses the latest measuring instruments, capable of measuring oil-mist concentration for each droplet size. Using this technology, the Mistmeister measures and surveys the sources of mist in the factory and the volumes of mist generated.
2.Forecasting of oil-mist behavior using CFD analysis
The CFD uses the measurement data obtained in 1) above as a forecast of future oil-mist volume. Applying this forecast as a calculation parameter, the CFD calculates the expected distribution of oil-mist concentration in the air with high precision. In this way oil-mist generation and dispersion in the factory, formerly considered extremely difficult to grasp, is faithfully reproduced, pinpointing the causes of damage from oil mist.
3.Test-run simulations of proposed solutions
With the causal factors established, solutions can be proposed. The Mistmeister uses simulations based on CFD analysis to forecast the effectiveness of each proposed solution (Figure 1), ensuring the proposal of accurate and effective solutions. For example, the simulations can identify the minimum amount of outside air necessary to improve the environment, as well as the optimum placement and minimum necessary number of electric dust collectors. Factory management can thus propose an ideal solution, yielding energy savings and reduced running costs.

January 22, 2015Development of a Room Visualization System for data centers
January 22, 2015 - SHINRYO CORPORATION (“SHINRYO”) has developed a Room Visualization System which uses CFD technology to automatically display the temperature and airflow in the server room of data centers.
In order to protect servers, appropriate temperature control is required in the server room of data centers. However, it is difficult to maintain appropriate temperature control when replacing servers, adding servers, or changing the layout.
Furthermore, in order to conduct appropriate temperature control of a server room, it is necessary to install a large number of temperature sensors throughout the entire room. This is not a practical solution because such sensors are a hindrance when conducting maintenance and changing the position or model of servers.
In response, SHINRYO used our unique in-house CFD (Computation Fluid Dynamics) analysis technology to develop a Room Visualization System which automatically provides visual display of the temperature and airflow in the server room. Please refer to “Figure 1: System Overview.”
This system conducts CFD analysis based on the operation status of servers and air conditioning equipment. The system features a “CFD Auto-Execution Function” which automatically calculates the temperature and airflow in the server room at fixed intervals. This system makes it possible to continuously monitor changes in temperature and wind speed without installing numerous temperature sensors throughout the server room. Please refer to “Figure 2: CFD Auto-Execution Function.”
Moreover, the visualized data is automatically accumulated (Auto-Report Function), making it easy to identify problems in the server room. This data can be used to reform the room environment or to perform renewal work for existing servers. Please refer to “Figure 3: Auto-Report Function.”
SHINRYO will conduct proposal-based sales using this system. We will target customers experiencing difficulty in controlling server temperature in data center server rooms, or having difficulty control temperature and airflow when replacing servers, adding servers, or changing the layout.

January 7 2015Financial summary (consolidated) for the fiscal year ended September, 2014
January 7 2015 - SHINRYO CORPORATION announced the Group's consolidated results for the 59th term (October, 2013 - September, 2014) as below.
＜Overlook of the current fiscal year (consolidated)＞
During the 59th term, due to the positive effects of ‘Abenomics’ policies, Japan’s economy showed
a steady performance with rising stock prices, continued yen's depreciation, and improved
corporate earnings. Still, as personal consumption that dropped after the consumption tax
increase continued to be quite sluggish, Japan's economy did not progress further than a slow
In the construction industry, the term under review was characterized by a flourishing demand for construction on the one hand, but, on the other, exposed such issues faced by the industry as a shortage of construction workers, increases in the prices for construction equipment and materials, and increases in the wages of construction workers.
Under these circumstances, on consolidated base, the Group posted Orders Received of 238,600 million yen (of which Orders Received Overseas was 60,500 million yen), up 1.6% year on year (YoY), Net Sales of 209,300 million yen (of which Net Sales Overseas was 53,300 million yen), up 3.1% YoY, and Ordinary Profit of 7,700 million yen, up 13.2% YoY.
Although the economy of Japan will probably not show a forceful performance in the near future,
it is expected that as a result of a number of policies, capital investment as well as exports
will increase leading the country to a gradual recovery. On the other hand, we need to carefully
watch the future trends as there is a risk of a downturn in the economies overseas adversely
affecting Japan's economy.
In the construction industry, capital investment and investments in the public utilities are expected to remain solid. Still, fundamentally, as there are remaining concerns regarding increases in labor costs and material prices, as well as a rapid drop of demand after the Tokyo Olympic Games expected over the medium term, environment of the industry will most probably continue to be just as severe as it is now.
In these circumstances, the Company intends to strengthen its LCM (life-cycle management) service system further and strive to increase the number of orders for renewal work. We shall also make an all-out Group effort to promote globalization and expand our overseas business. One more area we intend to work on is the area of increasing the awareness of our social responsibility, and the Group shall tackle its CSR activities very earnestly.
