Abstract: A coupler pin couples an output sleeve of rotary unit to an input member of a rotary sensor with interference fits. The coupler pin has a first part and a second part. A key groove is formed in an inner surface of a coupling bore in the output sleeve. The first part is received by the coupling bore, and the first part has a key member which is received by the key groove. The second part has a key slot formed therein. The input member has a key. The key has a slip fit with a first part of the key slot and has an interference fit with a second part of the key slot. The key projects inwardly from a wall of a coupling bore in the input member. The second part is divided into a plurality of sections by axially extending cross-cuts.

Abstract: A mounting bracket for locating an actuator in a predetermined position relative to a valve at least partially controlled by the actuator. The mounting bracket includes a body element and three or more arms attached to the body element. Each arm extends between an inner end attached to the body element and an outer end distal to the body element, the outer ends of said at least three arms being positioned to define a plane on which the actuator is locatable, to maintain the actuator in the predetermined position.
Abstract: A fluid circuit breaker includes a plurality of petals and a bias system attached to the plurality of petals to maintain the plurality of petals at a closed unobstructed flow condition below a predetermined flow velocity.
