  • Patent number: 8590861
    Abstract: A gate valve apparatus is disclosed. The gate valve apparatus is provided with a valve casing that includes a first valve seat and a second valve seat, and in which an opening portion is formed; and a closure element that includes a sealing member that contacts the first valve seat to seal the opening portion. In addition, the gate valve apparatus is provided with a shutoff member that contacts the second valve seat to thereby be deformed, so that a space between the opening portion and a sealing member is shut off by the shutoff member when the closure element closes the opening portion. The shutoff member is deformed and continues to contact the second valve seat under normal and high temperature environments when the closure element closes the opening portion.

  • Patent number: 8437084
    Abstract: On the light-entering surface side of a base material 10, a coating layer 11 in which a high-refractive layer and a low-refractive layer are sequentially disposed alternately on one on the other is provided for blocking infrared radiation. One of the high-refractive layers is configured by an ITO film 11a so that the conductivity is increased on the surface of the coating layer. Herein, in view of preventing, to a further extent, the attachment of dirt and dust by providing the conductivity to the surface of the coating layer, it is desirable if the outermost high-refractive layer is made of a transparent conductive material. Moreover, it is desirable if the total layer thickness is 140 nm or smaller for the refractive layers formed outside of the high-refractive layer made of the transparent conductive material.
