  • Patent number: 7857355
    Abstract: A liner assembly including a first ring member, a second ring member, a corrosion barrier ring, a first liner and a second liner. The first ring member has a body member with a first end and a second end. The first end has a first flange and a second flange extending therefrom. The first flange and the second flange define a space therebetween. The second ring member has an extended body member having a first end and a second end. The second end has a first flange and a second flange extending therefrom. The first flange and the second flange define a space therebetween. The corrosion barrier ring is disposed between and cooperates with the first end of the first ring member and the second end of the second ring member. The first liner is configured to be secured in the space formed between the first flange and the second flange of the first ring member. The second liner is configured to be secured in the space formed between the first flange and the second flange of the second ring member.

  • Patent number: 5843532
    Abstract: A method of coating a conduit outlet fitting is disclosed. In the method, a tooling plate is positioned between a cover and a body of the conduit outlet fitting. The tooling plate has a hanger tooling block and a plug tooling block affixed thereto and positioned inside the body when the tooling plate is positioned between the body and the cover. A hanger is passed through a conduit opening and attached to the hanger tooling block. A plug is passed through another conduit opening and attached to the plug tooling block. The hanger and the plug each have a cap disposed thereon for covering an external end of their respective conduit openings. The assembled structure is suspended from the hanger and dipped into a liquid protective coating material to form an external coating thereon. The cover, the body and the tooling plate cooperate to form complementary male and female seals on the cover and the body. The dip coated structure is removed from the coating material and cured.
