  • Patent number: 9140388
    Abstract: A bi-directional seal assembly for sealing the annulus between an inner tubular member and an outer tubular member comprises an annular seal which in cross section includes a generally U-shaped first portion having a radially inner first leg and a radially outer second leg and a generally U-shaped second portion having a radially inner third leg and a radially outer fourth leg. The second and third legs are joined together such that the first leg engages the inner tubular member and the fourth leg engages the outer tubular member. Pressure below the seal urges the first leg into sealing engagement with the inner tubular member and forces the second and third legs radially outwardly to thereby urge the fourth leg into sealing engagement with the outer tubular member. Also, pressure above the seal urges the fourth leg into sealing engagement with the outer tubular member and forces the second and third legs radially inwardly to thereby urge the first leg into sealing engagement with the inner tubular member.

The fuel inlet box comprises a main body member and a sealing member. The main body member has a box portion, and a storage wall bulging from a side wall of the box portion and having space for storing an arm portion of a lid body. The mounting surface is interposed between a base portion of the storage wall and a flange portion, and faces the flange portion through a gap extending in a planar direction. A seal lip of the sealing member is fixed on the flange portion, extending toward the mounting surface and inclined toward an outer peripheral side of an opening. An outer basing point of a root portion of the seal lip is located in the flange portion.

  • Patent number: 8672330
    Abstract: A sealing arrangement, which is particularly suitable for flat flange connections, has an annular, metallic base body (1). Connected to the metallic base body (1) at both sides are soft material supports (2). The base body (1) has ring teeth (3,4) which run around radially at the inside and/or at the outside. The ring teeth (3,4), in the installed state, permit punctiform metallic contact and also have a spring characteristic. The spring characteristic of the ring teeth (3,4) is selected such that, in a first embodiment, after the removal of the seal from the flanges, the tooth height corresponds substantially to the height before the installation. The region of the base body (1) which is covered by the soft material supports (2) also has angular ring teeth (5). The ring teeth (5) have a spring characteristic, wherein after the removal of the seal, the ring teeth (5) spring back to at least 75% of the original state.

  • Patent number: 8622399
    Abstract: An sealing gasket is shown for use in forming joints of plastic pipe. The gasket is formed as a composite elastomeric body with a leading region formed of a thermoplastic elastomer material and with a trailing region formed of a synthetic plastic material. The gasket body has an outer circumferential region provided with a series of recessed pocket which give it a scallop-like appearance. The relatively harder plastic region of the gasket body deforms the associated pipe socket end during manufacture of the pipe end, whereby the gasket is integrally locked within an internal pipe groove in the pipe socket end upon completion of the pipe belling operation.
