20110024655Leak Prevention Method for Gas Lines - The present invention provides failsafe system for cutting gas off gas flow in response to electrical insults that may damage gas tubing. The invention uses an inductive sensor to detect electrical surges along a ground conductor that provides a ground path for gas tubing.

The pulse train from the control circuitry keeps the valve open. In response to an electrical surge detected along the ground conductor (e.g., from lightning), the control circuitry stops the pulse train to the solenoid, which in turn causes the gas valve to close and stop the gas flow through the tubing.02-03-2011

20110309277VALVE WITH A SOLENOID FIXED TO A PLUNGER TUBE BY A YOKE - The invention provides a valve comprising a tube for guiding movement of a plunger, a solenoid which can be arranged about the tube, and a yoke which can be positioned in an operational position relative to the tube and relative to the solenoid so that it provides a magnetic path between the solenoid and portions of the tube. The yoke engages the tube and thereby prevents removal of the solenoid from tube. The invention thereby provides a very simple valve design with a low amount of components. The invention further provides a method of making a valve including fixing a solenoid to a tube by use of a yoke which engages the tube.12-22-2011
20120018656DIE CAST SLEEVE WITH STABILITY ENHANCEMENT FEATURES OCCUPYING A SMALL PACKAGE SPACE - In a preferred embodiment, the present solenoid control valve is provided which has a valve sleeve having upper and lower feedback chambers which are connected to control pressure by an exterior surface longitudinal slot or slots.01-26-2012
20120018655ELECTROMAGNETIC VALVE - A conical portion is provided at the tip of a main valve body. When brake fluid hits the conical portion of the main valve body, the brake fluid is bounced back at substantially the same angle at which it hits the conical surface of the conical portion. However, the movement direction of the bounced brake fluid is not largely inclined from the direction that the brake fluid is to be caused to flow. Therefore, the flow resistance is reduced. Further, generatrices of the conical portion agree with tangent lines to the spherical surface and the boundary area between the spherical surface and the conical surface is continuous without a step. Therefore, the brake fluid is rectified by these surfaces when it flows. It is possible to reduce the amount of fluctuation in pressure differential relative to fluctuation in the flow rate of brake fluid.01-26-2012
20120298898ELECTROMAGNETIC PRESSURE VALVE - The invention refers to an electromagnetic valve, in particular pressure control valve, with a magnetic part of at least an electrically controllable coil, a core and an armature provided in an armature housing and shiftably guided, and with a valve part, having at least a feed, a return and/or a consumer connection, wherein the valve part has between the feed and the return or consumer connection at least one globe valve that can be sealed by a locking part, and the armature interacts with the locking part, between armature and locking part an activation rod arranged in a penetration bore hole of the core being provided for this purpose, wherein a connecting channel, connecting the penetration bore hole with an in particular pressure-free or pressure-reduced relieving area, ends in the penetration bore hole.11-29-2012
20120085953MULTIPLE ELECTROMAGNETIC VALVE - A multiple electromagnetic valve includes a main valve portion in which four or more valve holes are formed parallel to each other inside a valve body, and a spool for switching flow paths is placed in each valve hole, and a pilot operating portion having solenoid-operated pilot valves that drive the spools with pilot fluid. The valve holes are disposed inside the valve body in two upper and lower tiers. A plurality of valve holes belongs in each of the upper tier and lower tier. The valve holes in the upper tier and the valve holes in the lower tier occupy different positions in the width direction of the valve body. The valve holes in the upper tier and the valve holes in the lower tier partially overlap each other in the plan view of the valve body.04-12-2012
