  • Patent number: 10443738
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a magnetic fluid (MF) seal suitable for a fluid environment may provide a shaft and a magnet that is cylindrical or ring-shaped. A magnetic fluid may be present between the magnet and shaft. Additionally, pole pieces may also be provided, which are also cylindrical or ring-shaped. These pole pieces are positioned on the shaft so the magnet is sandwiched between the pole pieces. The magnet, pole pieces, and shaft, if magnetic, may attract and retain the magnetic fluid in an annular gap or region between the shaft and the magnet and/or the pole pieces. The magnetic fluid in the annular gap serves as a seal or barrier that prevents fluid from passing through when pressure is below a predetermined level.

  • Patent number: 10436328
    Abstract: A mechanical seal system configured to inhibit the emission of process gas from a rotating machine. An annular plunger is axially slidable between a inboard closed position and an outboard open position such that when the plunger is in the closed position, the plunger inhibits the flow of the sealing fluid between the inlet passageway to the seal interface, and when the plunger is in the closed position, the plunger enables the flow of the sealing fluid between the inlet passageway and the seal interface. A biasing mechanism and solenoid provide opening and closing forces to the plunger. Normally-open and normally-closed configurations are provided.

  • Patent number: 10436372
    Abstract: A large-gap-seal (“LGS”) assembly and methods for its assembly and use are described. The LGS assembly has an elastomer core surrounded by adjoining structural segments. Non-adjoining gap segments are located on the sidewall surfaces of the elastomer core, with each gap segment approximately centered beneath the edges of two adjoining structural segments. The gap segments are exposed by the spaces that form between the structural segments when the LGS assembly is activated. Exposing the gap segments rather than the elastomer core protects the elastomer core from damage and preserves the integrity of the seal between the isolation tool and the inner wall of the pipeline.

  • Patent number: 10432544
    Abstract: Presented herein are techniques that enable Ethernet Virtual Private Networks (EVPNs) to support use cases where either the Layer 2 or Layer 3 route associated with a virtual endpoint is different after the virtual endpoint migrates/moves to a different location. In particular, a networking device running an overlay network detects that a virtual endpoint has migrated on the overlay network from a first computing device to a second computing device. The networking device determines a modified Layer 2/Layer 3 route for the virtual endpoint at the second computing device, as well as a sequence number for association with the modified Layer 2/Layer 3 route. The sequence number is determined based on a sequence number associated with a parent Layer 2 route for the modified Layer 2/Layer 3 route.
