  • Patent number: 4865673
    Abstract: A method of applying a protective coating to the inner surface of a pipeline includes the steps of adhering a porous flexible hose to the pipeline inner surface, an end of the hose of which is turned inside out and attached to the pipeline. The hose is moved inside the pipeline by progressively turning it inside out and pressing it to the inner surface of the pipeline by providing an excess pressure in a cavity formed by the portion of the hose turned inside out, and producing a counter-pressure before the hose as the same travels lengthwise of the pipeline. The magnitude of the counter-pressure is maintained at a predetermined level in the course of the hose travel. A piston having a passage for the hose is placed in the cavity formed by the portion of the hose turned inside out, and a binder is placed between the piston and the portion of the hose turned inside out. The binder soaks through the pores of the hose to facilitate the formation of a bond between the hose and the inner surface of the pipeline.

  • Patent number: 4864171
    Abstract: The end turn portions of the saddle-shaped coils of a superconducting field winding in the rotor of an electric machine are clamped in an axial direction by a wedge device positioned in an annular recess between its wall and the nearest end turn portion. The wedge device comprises two rings mounted coaxially with the recess and having their sides facing each other bevelled so that the distance therebetween increases toward the axis of the rings. These sides are provided with radial depressions. Bolts with heads tapering toward the threaded portions are positioned in the depressions. When the bolts are radially shifted the rings are forced apart thus pressing the end turn portions one to another and to the wall of the recess.
