  • Patent number: 10876639
    Abstract: When a part of a hole rear wall of a mounting hole formed in a valve plate and a part of a rod rear wall of a mounting portion of a valve rod have formed thereat inclined portions, respectively, that produce a wedge effect by abutting upon each other and when the valve plate and the valve rod are fixed in a direction of an axis by a valve-plate fixing screw, a wedge effect when the inclined portions and abut upon each other causes a rod front wall of the mounting portion and a hole front wall of the mounting hole to come into close contact with each other and the valve plate and the valve rod to be precisely and firmly fixed to each other so as not to rotate relative to each other.

  • Publication number: 20200400238
    Abstract: A spacer having a wedge-shaped flat plate portion and an engagement protrusion is interposed between a hole end surface of mounting hole of a valve plate and a rod end surface of mounting portion of a valve rod, which thereby forms a wedge-shaped gap between the spacer and the hole end surface so as to open frontward. A fastening force of a valve-plate fixation screw generates a moment M that deforms the valve plate in a direction of narrowing the gap. At the same time, the engagement protrusion of the spacer is pressed into a wedge-shaped space between the inclined surface portion of the rod end surface and the rear hole-wall surface of the mounting hole, which causes the front hole-wall surface of mounting hole of the valve plate to press the rod front surface of mounting portion of the valve rod.
