  • Patent number: 10393140
    Abstract: The fluid pump according to the present invention has water storage means that is formed so as to communicate with a shaft hole in a pump case and stores fluid leaking from a mechanical seal. An electromagnetic clutch establishes or blocks the transmission of power to a drive shaft by switching between supply and non-supply of electricity to an excitation coil. The water storage means has a weep chamber that communicates with the shaft hole between the mechanical seal and a bearing and is opened to an end portion in the axial direction. An attachment member for attaching a core of the electromagnetic clutch to the pump case seals the opening of the weep chamber.

  • Patent number: 8830025
    Abstract: A circuit breaker can minimize a change in a structure of a case when a material forming a stud is changed. A stud includes a base portion provided in the case and a protruding portion protruding from the case. A cross-sectional area of the protruding portion is more than that of the base portion; thereby a thermal conductivity of the protruding portion increases and the thermal conductivity from the protruding portion to an external conductor connected to the stud increases. In addition, since a surface area of the protruding portion increases, an amount of heat dissipated from the protruding portion increases. In the invention, since dimensions of the base portion inserted into a stud insertion hole of the case are not changed, it is not necessary to change the dimensions of the insertion hole of the case.

  • Publication number: 20120152705
    Abstract: Provided is a circuit breaker capable of minimizing a change in the structure of, for example, a case even when a material (thermal conductivity) forming a stud is changed. A stud (20) includes a base portion (21) that is provided in a case (2) and a protruding portion (22) that protrudes from the case (2). The cross-sectional area of the protruding portion (22) is more than that of the base portion (21). When the cross-sectional area of the protruding portion (22) is more than that of the base portion (21) in the stud (20), the thermal conductivity of the protruding portion (22) increases and it is possible to increase the thermal conductivity from the protruding portion (22) to an external conductor connected to the stud. In addition, since the surface area of the protruding portion (22) increases, the amount of heat dissipated from the protruding portion (22) increases.
