  • Patent number: 7322382
    Abstract: A segment for a rehabilitating pipe is coupled to another segment in the circumferential and longitudinal directions of a rehabilitating pipe to rehabilitate an existing pipe. The segment has on one coupling surface a protruding part and a recessed part continuous with the protruding part and on another coupling surface a recessed part and a protruding part whose shapes respectively conform to the protruding part and the recessed part of one coupling surface. The protruding part and the recessed part of one coupling surface of one segment is brought into tight surface contact with the recessed part and protruding part of another coupling surface of another segment and interfitted thereto when one and another segments are mutually coupled in the circumferential and longitudinal directions of the rehabilitating pipe.

  • Patent number: 5915412
    Abstract: An insulative cover assembly for insulating a P-trap drain piping assembly comprises a unitary first cover piece having a generally elongated body terminating in an approximately 180.degree. bend at the end of the body. The elongated body is longitudinally slit along its length for being positioned over the straight and J-shaped pipe sections of the P-trapped pipe assembly and is configured and dimensioned for continuously and simultaneously covering the joint straight and J-shaped pipe sections and the juncture therebetween. A second cover piece has a generally elongated body terminating in an approximately 90.degree. bend at one end of the second cover piece. The second cover piece is longitudinally slit along its length to be positioned over the L-shaped pipe section of the P-trap assembly with a portion of the second cover piece body proximate the 90.degree.

  • Patent number: 5472768
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a tubular section which may be constructed from a sheet having a pair of opposed edges. The opposed edges are releasably connectable such that the section may be stored in a relatively flat configuration. The screw fasteners used to connect the edges together may be restrained from rotation using for example a stringer element appropriately stabilised relative to the fasteners.

  • Patent number: 5402830
    Abstract: A thermal guard for pipes to protect personnel from hot or cold pipes in refineries, chemical plants and other places processing hot or cold fluids. The guard is made from metal and contains no insulation so that the pipes are readily visible for observing leaks and can be readily repaired. The guard is fabricated from a few easily fabricated and assembled parts which can be attached to pipes of various sizes.

  • Patent number: 5303744
    Abstract: A piping assembly has spacers which are positioned on a pipe and spaced apart one from another along a length of the pipe. Each of the spacers extends from a perimeter of the pipe to a spacer perimeter surface which is interrupted by at least one gap defined by two spacer edges which extend towards the pipe perimeter from the spacer perimeter surface in a direction transverse to the spacer perimeter surface. A sleeve having apertures therethrough which form a mesh is positioned on and circumscribes the perimeter surfaces of at least two spacers and has edge portions bent at positions to extend to the spacer edges so that the sleeve is held in position on the spacers.

  • Patent number: 5028740
    Abstract: A hollow housing case of an electriclly conducting plate which has one insulating surface includes a connecting part to connect together electrically both ends of the plate. The connecting part is a bent portion which is formed by bending at least one end of the plate and enabling the non-insulating surfaces at both ends to face and contact with each other surely. Further, the hollow housing case comprises a fastening member for finally fastening together both ends of the plate. By the fastening member, a hollow housing case of any size can be fabricated easily, without the process of pressing.

  • Patent number: 4712286
    Abstract: A merchandising display system and the method of making its posts and struts, using pre-decorated strip material having surfaces such as polished metal or wood-grained vinyl that are covered by removable protective strips. A plurality of elongated sections of the strip material are bent longitudinally to form side portions of the desired cross-sectional shape, including overlapping portions defining longitudinal grooves, and are secured together by rivets in the grooves. The overlapping portions are formed with aligned slots and aligned countersunk rivet holes which serve as aligning abutments in the assembly process. The protective strips are slit in the grooves for quick and neat removal. The grooves in the posts have slots for receiving tabs of tightening mechanisms in the ends of the struts, each including a base plate that is movable longitudinally of the strut by a screw mechanism. Different embodiments are shown for the base plates and the guiding of the base plates for sliding on the struts.

  • Patent number: 4349220
    Abstract: A gangable wireway assembly including a plurality of generally U-shaped troughs and trough covers utilized as either tandem sections or as fittings which connect the tandem sections in an elbow, tee or cross configuration. Trough covers have upstanding lips at opposite ends and drip hood flanges running along longitudinal margins which overlap flanges on the U-shaped trough. The tandem section covers include a reverse bend on one drip hood flange to interlock one margin of the cover with the trough. Adjacent trough ends are nestingly received by a connector and adjacent trough covers are overlapped by a connector cover at the juncture of adjacent cover sections. The connector cover includes a recess receiving the lips of adjacent covers and includes flanges in overlapping relationship with the drip hood flanges. One flange on the connector cover also includes a reverse bend to interlock with the associated drip hood flanges.

  • Patent number: 4328981
    Abstract: A sheet metal duct section component including at least one pair of adjacent longitudinally extending integral panel portions relatively angulated about a longitudinal zone connecting adjacent longitudinal marginal portions of said panel portions. At least one pair of corresponding ends of the panel portions include individually bendable flanges extending endwise outwardly therefrom. The flanges are bent relative to and toward corresponding sides of the panel portions into generally coplanar relation and include outer end extremities bent backwardly over the flanges to define double thickness flanges. A filler plate of a thickness at least generally equal to the double thickness flanges and including an outside corner defined by adjacent relatively angulated marginal edges of the filler plate is provided and substantially conforms to the inside corner defined by the adjacent marginal portions of the double thickness flanges.
