Abstract: A composite hose is constructed to have an outer peripheral portion and an inner peripheral portion. The outer peripheral portion includes an elastic layer and a reinforcing layer provided on an outer periphery of the elastic layer. The inner peripheral portion includes a corrugated metal tube which is provided with a corrugated portion formed with corrugation hills and corrugation valleys. A distance between the reinforcing layer and tops of the corrugation hills of the corrugated metal tube is designed 0.27 mm or less.

Abstract: In a method for producing a hose with a sealing layer, a hose body having a resin innermost layer is prepared, a rod-like core member is disposed through a center portion of a hollow interior of a connecting portion of the hose body so as to occupy the center portion, and the plasma gas is fed and distributed in an interior of an innermost layer of the connecting portion to modify an inner surface of the innermost layer. Then, the sealing layer is formed on the inner surface by coating an elastic material for the sealing layer on the inner surface of the connecting portion.
Abstract: A connecting portion of a quick connector is provided with a pair of stop arms. Each of the stop arms has an arm body that integrally includes an overhanging stop portion and an engaging pawl on a leading end portion thereof. The connecting portion is inserted in a connecting hole formed in a fluid line component until the engaging pawl engages with an outwardly directed engaging projection of a mounting portion that is provided on an opening portion of the connecting hole. A checker has a main body that is provided integrally with verifying portions. Each of the verifying portions is formed with a receiving recessed portion for accommodating the overhanging stop portion therein when the checker is disposed on an outer circumference of the mounting portion.
Abstract: A piping member is mounted in a mounting hole of one panel by a first holder and in a mounting hole of the other panel by a second holder, respectively. Each of the first and the second holders has a through-hole for receiving the piping member therethrough, and a fit-in projecting portion that is fitted in the mounting hole so as to be positioned. Each of the first and the second holders also has a resilient lug and a collar portion for cooperatively clamping the panel with its inner and outer surfaces therebetween. The first holder holds the piping member relatively movably axially with respect to the first holder therethrough, while the second holder securely fixes the piping member axially with respect to the second holder therethrough.
Abstract: A composite hose comprises a corrugated metal tube as barrier layer against permeation of conveyed fluid and a reinforcing layer which is formed by braiding a reinforcing wire member made of a metal wire. A braid density of the reinforcing layer is 55% or less.
Abstract: An inner peripheral surface of a tube connecting portion of a tubular connector housing is divided into a first receiving portion on one axial side and a second receiving portion on an opposite axial side by an inwardly directed annular parting projection. A first O-ring of one axial side and a second O-ring of an opposite axial side are disposed with intervening a collar therebetween on an opposite axial side in the first receiving portion. The first O-ring is made of FKM and the second O-ring is made of FVMQ. A third O-ring is disposed on one axial side in the second receiving portion. The third O-ring is also made of FVMQ.
Abstract: A hose with corrugated metal tube comprises a corrugated metal tube as innermost layer and outer layer in a radially outer side thereof including elastic layer and reinforced layer. The reinforced layer is braided with reinforcing filament members at a braid or winding angle which is a low angle, 40 degrees or lower.
Abstract: An orifice device is adapted to be disposed within a fluid chambers of a vibration absorption device. The fluid chamber is defined by at least a wall portion made of resilient material. The orifice device includes an orifice casing, a retaining cover and a membrane that is made of resilient material, such as rubber. The membrane is adapted to be clamped between the orifice casing and the retaining cover. A lock mechanism serves to lock the orifice casing and the retaining cover together when the orifice casing and the retaining cover rotate relative to each other about an axis while the orifice casing and the retaining cover are overlapped with each other.

Abstract: A flexible partition member for a hydraulic accumulator, which divides an interior of a shell of the accumulator into two sections that provide a gas chamber and a liquid chamber, respectively. The flexible partition member includes an integrally layered composite portion which includes at least one gas-barrier layer and at least one elastic layer, each gas-barrier layer containing a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl alcohol, and each elastic layer containing as a major component thereof a polyamide resin selected from the group consisting of nylon 6, nylon 66, nylon 6-10 and nylon 6-12. The integrally layered composite portion includes two adjacent layers which include a gas-barrier layer and an elastic layer.
Abstract: A refrigerant transporting hose having a laminar structure including an inner tube consisting of at least one layer, an outer tube disposed radially outwardly of and coaxially with the inner tube, and a reinforcing fiber layer interposed between the inner and outer tubes. The inner tube includes a resin layer formed of a resin composition which consists of a blend of modified polyolefin and polyamide resin, and 1-10% by weight of .epsilon.-caprolactam. A proportion by weight of the modified polyolefin to the polyamide resin is selected within a range between 40/60 and 10/90. The hose may have a sealing layer formed on the inner surface of the inner tube. The sealing layer consists of a chlorinated elastomer containing a dispersion of an acid receptive agent. Alternately, the sealing layer may be provided on the outer surface of a hose connector nipple.
