|20120098254||ADAPTERS AND CONNECTOR ASSEMBLIES FOR FLOW MANAGING APPARATUSES - A connector for a flow managing device in fluid communication with an outlet conduit is disclosed. The connector can comprise a receiving member, an engaging member, and an adapter. The receiving member can be secured to the adapter, which can be secured to a side wall of a basin near an outlet coupled to the outlet conduit. The adapter can comprise a curvature plate having a curvature that complements a curvature of the side wall. The adapter can further comprise an adapter bore through the curvature plate and an adapter conduit extending from the curvature plate and at least partially overlapping the adapter bore. The flow managing apparatus can be secured to the engaging member, which can be engaged with the receiving member. Fluid from the basin can flow through the flow managing device, the engaging member, the receiving member, and the adapter and into the outlet conduit.||04-26-2012|
|20120013118||CONNECTOR ASSEMBLIES FOR FLOW RESTRICTING APPARATUSES - A connector assembly for a flow restricting apparatus is disclosed. The flow restricting apparatus comprises an outlet configured to be in fluid communication with an outlet conduit. The connector assembly comprises a first member configured to be engaged with the flow restricting apparatus at least partially about the outlet. The first member comprises a first face, a second face, and a bore defined through the first member. The connector assembly comprises a second member comprising a first side, a second side, a bore defined through the second member, at least one projection extending outwardly from the first side of the second member, and sealing means for sealing positioned intermediate the first member and the second member. The at least one projection forms a receiving portion configured to receive a portion of the first member.||01-19-2012|
|20110061760||CONDUITS AND COUPLING SYSTEMS FOR TRENCHLESS APPLICATIONS - A conduit for trenchless applications is provided. The conduit comprises a first coupler region on one end of the conduit and a second coupler region on the other end of the conduit. The first coupler region is configured to be attached to a second coupler region of another conduit, while the second coupler region is configured to be attached to a first coupler region of another conduit. The first and second coupler regions can engage a sealing member and, optionally, a locking member.||03-17-2011|
|20110042937||PIPE FITTING WITH A SOLVENT CEMENT BARRIER - Various embodiments of a fitting or other fluid conduit for a piping system are provided. In at least one embodiment, a fitting comprises a body including a first portion and a second portion, and a barrier positioned between the first and second portions. In various embodiments, the first portion includes a first inner surface that defines a first opening that is sized and configured to receive a first piping system component. The first piping system component may be secured to the first portion by a securing liquid, such as a solvent cement. Further, in various embodiments, the second portion includes a second inner surface defining a second opening that is sized and configured to receive a second piping system component. In various embodiments, the barrier, such as a lip, for example, may be positioned between the first inner surface and the second inner surface, and the barrier may at least partially define a reservoir with an open side facing the first portion. Additionally, in these embodiments, the second inner surface may include threads. The fitting, in these embodiments, may be at least partially made of a plastic, such as PVC, CPVC, and/or ABS, for example. Thus, in such embodiments, when the securing liquid, such as solvent cement, is added to the first inner surface, the barrier and/or reservoir resists the liquid from reaching the second inner surface, thereby reducing the likelihood that the second inner surface and/or the surface's threads will become damaged or otherwise compromised by chemically reacting with the securing liquid.||02-24-2011|
