|20090102132||External Pressure Gasket - A gasket having an upper surface, a substantially cylindrical inner surface abutting the upper surface, a lower surface abutting the inner surface, and generally opposite the upper surface, and an outer surface abutting the upper surface and the lower surface, and generally opposite the inner surface. The outer surface has a sealing surface between the upper surface and the lower surface, a first depression between the sealing surface and the upper surface, and a second depression between the sealing surface and the lower surface. A distance between the first depression and the second depression may be less than a distance between the upper surface and the lower surface. The outer surface may have a first seal wing between the sealing surface and the upper surface, and a second seal wing between the sealing surface and the lower surface.||04-23-2009|
|20080217569||Low Torque Gate Valve Mechanism - A gate valve apparatus provides a manually operated gate valve with an operation mechanism that reduces the force required to actuate the gate valve and minimizes the number of handwheel turns required. Disclosed is a gate valve apparatus including a valve body, a bonnet, a gate, a ball screw arrangement, a gear reducer arrangement and a handwheel. The ball screw arrangement, gear reducer arrangement, and the handwheel are associated with the valve stem and gate such that rotational force applied to the handwheel is converted by the gear reducer arrangement and the ball screw arrangement into linear force applied to the valve stem and then to the gate.||09-11-2008|
