  • Patent number: 4537407
    Abstract: A sealing arrangement around an end of a pipe received in a testhead of a hydraulic pipe testing apparatus, which sealing arrangement consists of an elastic sealing ring and an adjacent, rigid support ring of varying diameters. Both rings are mounted in radial recesses in the testhead and encircle the pipe upon its entry into the testhead. The recess for the elastic sealing ring consists of a flat ring located between the sealing ring and the rigid support ring. For a sealing condition, the support ring is contracted to abut the pipe and the sealing ring is caused to be deformed whereby it flows radially outwardly from its recess against the pipe and axially along the pipe towards and away from the pipe's end. In the axial direction away from the end of the pipe, the sealing ring flows around the flat ring to abut the rigid support ring.

  • Patent number: 4505771
    Abstract: An arrangement, apparatus, and method for alternately stacking material, such as copper, glass, etc. to form a stack of uncured laminates in a laminating press line. A material sheet pick-up and depositing head has at least one compartment which receives negative air pressure for a pick-up mode, and positive air pressure for a material sheet depositing mode. A slightly curved convexed surface on the underside of this head may cooperate with the positive pressure in first forcing the center of the sheet downwardly and then outwardly onto the build-up station, whereby air is dispelled from between the sheet and the already uncured stacked laminates, resulting in the sheet being placed smoothly onto the stacked laminates. A conveyor belt system mounted on the head cooperates with the negative air pressure to uncoil a sheet of material from a let-off unit.
