  • Patent number: 6793394
    Abstract: A pair of thrust hydrodynamic bearing portions are made to communicate with each other to form fluid circulating passages for equalizing a pressure imbalance between both thrust hydrodynamic bearing portions. Even in a case where a pressure imbalance has occurred in a lubricating fluid inside the thrust hydrodynamic bearing portions due to such a cause as the deformation of a thrust plate, the lubricating fluid is allowed to move between the pair of upper and lower thrust hydrodynamic bearing portions through the fluid circulating passages so as to overcome the pressure imbalance, thereby making it possible to stably obtain the amount of floatation in the thrust hydrodynamic bearing portions.

  • Patent number: 6769445
    Abstract: A gear meshing with a pinion controls the angle of rotation of a valve element which is brought into sliding contact with a valve seat, thereby controlling the opening and closing of a communicating hole of outflow pipe. During welding the valve seat plate and a housing, a hook portion of an upper portion of the gear is retained by a retaining portion to cause the valve element to be spaced apart from the valve seat. After natural cooling, the pinion is remotely operated by an electric motor to rotate the gear, thereby canceling the holding. A resilient arm causes the gear to be disengaged from the retaining portion by its urging force, brings the valve element into pressure contact with the valve seat, and allows the opening/closing operation to function smoothly.
