How to Install Blow Off Valves

How to Install Blow Off Valves A blow off valve is a device that allows recirculating air to exit the intake/exhaust system on a turbocharged vehicle. Without the blow off valve, air would be forced back into the turbocharger's compression wheel when the driver's foot is taken off the accelerator, causing undue stress on the turbo's components. This, in turn, slows turbo spool up time. Over time, this could cause the turbo to fail. Installing a blow off valve gives the air a place to go and relieves pressure from the turbo's compression wheel during gear shifts (when the driver's foot is off the accelerator). Open the hood and disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminal. Disconnect the positive cable from the battery terminal. Locate the factory recirculating valve. Use your shop manual if you need a visual description for the valve specific to your vehicle. This valve recirculates the intake air to the exhaust. This is the device we want to replace. There will be two hoses connected to vacuum lines. The top vacuum line is connected to the throttle body after the intake. This vacuum pressure is what makes the valve operate. Use either a screwdriver or socket wrench (either should work) to remove the screw bolts on the hose clamps. Slide the hose clamps out of the way and use the screwdriver to pry both the vacuum lines off. Install the new blow off valve. Install the hoses the opposite way of removal. Put the batter back in and reconnect the positive cable to the battery first, then the negative cable.

2. Where is the main water shut-off valve in my house?

As stated the main water shutoff is at the meter. It will be an inline valve on the pay side i.e. on the side of the meter with the pipe leading to your home. Typically a rectangle shaped iron knob requiring a special tool or adjustable crescent wrench. If you do not have enough clearance to use the adjustable crescent wrench the special tool can be purchased at almost any type hardware store. The long portion of the rectangle will be pointing in line ( same direction ) as the water pipe. turn on a water facet in your home and have someone watch the water flow. Turn the valve until you are told the water is off. When you repair you leaking facet, install multi turn water vales on both hot & cold facet water lines. When you do not / I do not have multi turn water valves when doing a facet repair I always install them. Eventually you will have shut off valves at every facet. This keeps you from having to shut down water from the whole house when facets need repairing or upgrading. I actually, install multi-turn water valves on every facet in the home the first time I get to do a facet repair. This ends the need of having to turn off the water supply at the meter when servicing facets or toilets

4. What's the Difference Between All These Stop Valves?

Stop Valves are a commonplace item found in many houses directly below the sink or behind the toilet. For being a simple addition to a plumbing system that often blends in with the surrounding dcor, one turn of a stop valve's handle can be the difference between a small mess and a plumbing disaster. Straight Stops are typically found on supply lines coming from the floor and into the fixture directly above it. Angle Stops are designed for supply lines stemming from the wall. In addition to their standard functionality they act as an elbow, directing the flow upwards towards the fixture. Dual Outlets are made for when there is a need for multiple destinations from a single supply line and a single stop valve. An example of this is when hot water is being run to multiple kitchen fixtures. Turn Stop Valves are the most user friendly style. By nature of their handle only needing to turn 90 to activate, these provide a clear visual cue to if the valve is open or closed. Multi Turn Stop Valves do require more effort to operate, but are more reliable in an emergency situation. The additional turns can help work out any hang-ups and seizes that can occur. They also can be repaired if it becomes damaged while the turns have to be replaced entirely. Rough Brass units provide a distinct visual style that blend into certain ascetics while providing a reliable valve. Chrome Plated Brass units also provide a unique visual style for different ascetics than their rough brass counterparts, but they also are more durable. Depending on the harshness of the environment they are being installed into these could be best option, regardless of looks. The inlet connection type necessary varies depending on the job's specific needs. The options available include Compression, Sweat, CPVC, PEX Crimp, Expansion, Sharkbite, and Press. Alternatively the outlet is typically a compression connection designed to attach to a riser or flexible faucet connector. Risers need to use their included nut and ferrule to create a proper connection with the stop valve's outlet.

I'm Switching to French Horn From Trumpet. What Are the Hardest Things About Playing the French Horn
It's heavier and awkward to carry around. I have a backpack style case. Oiling valves takes more time and effort. Lots of slides to use tuning grease on. More difficult to get water out of the instrument as there is usually only one water key. Keep those slides greased because you'll be pulling them frequently to empty water. Learn your double horn (if you're playing one) fingerings right away. Depending on whether you're playing in an orchestra and you don't know how to transpose, get on learning that skill right away. I am switching to French horn from trumpet. What are the hardest things about playing the French horn?1. Can I use a co2 regulator with sf6?It depends on the size of your canister. If a lecture bottle, then any number of valves that are corrosion resistant will work. But if you are referring to a cylinder, with a pressure regulator, then looking in any catalog from a gas supplier will give you the regulator number. That refers to the threads of the cylinder. So if the number matches, then you can. But if the number does not, you can not . You refer to the CGA number. CO2 uses a CGA C10. SF6 uses a CGA 590. So you can not .2. High-Speed Solenoid Valves Control Hydraulic Pump DisplacementMuch of the mobile equipment in use today operates with conventional hydraulic pumps controlled by changing the stroke of pistons with a swashplate mechanism. Because swashplate position is not easily controlled, energy is lost through volumetric and mechanical inefficiencies. A new technology, the Digital Displacement Pump overcomes these limitations by using multiple radial cylinders that are enabled and disabled in real time with ultra-fast mechatronic valves controlled by an embedded computer. Developed by Artemis Intelligent Power Ltd., Loanhead, Scotland, the technology has shown a substantial energy savings by making it practical to replace mechanical gearboxes with hydraulic transmissions. Benefits include lower energy usage, typically less than one-third that of a conventional axial-piston pump, quicker response times, and elimination of high-frequency noise. When applied to an excavator, for example, the technology has demonstrated fuel savings of up to 20%, as well as an increase in productivity of nearly 30%. The Digital Displacement Pump (DDP) is a radial-piston pump with cylinders stroked by a cam ring. Each cylinder can be turned on and off individually, and each has its own control system: solenoid-operated poppet valve, a check valve, and a piston position sensor. When configured as a Digital Displacement Pump Motor (DDPM), each piston has two solenoids, and the unit can be used as a pump or a motor. These solenoids can be activated or deactivated in as little as 30 msec to limit oil flow through each cylinder as the load requires. In essence, it is a multi-step transmission with each step capable of varying its output flow. The decision to activate or deactivate a given cylinder is made continually with each shaft revolution to meet the pressure demand set in the pump controller. The number, orientation, and size of the pistons in use can vary widely. A common configuration uses 12 cylinders arranged in three groups of four, although the manufacturer has built a unit with 68 pistons for a wind turbine application. This graph compares efficiency of the Digital Displacement Pump with a variable-displacement axial-piston pump at two different speeds. The DDP and DDPM are designed to be computer-controlled. To take full advantage of the technology, it is critical to adjust the timing of the solenoids based on signals from the piston position sensors and feedback from the work site. With the shaft rotating, if the load does not require flow, all cylinders are isolated from any line pressure and incur minimal losses. From the idle state, full flow can be achieved within 30 msec, independent of working pressure. In addition, a DDP can be powered with an induction motor and a soft starter, reducing initial cost when compared to using a variable-speed motor used with an axial-piston pump. The simplified circuit diagrams of a six-piston pump show how the technology works. As the cam rotates, the pistons are alternately drawn in and pushed out. A check valve separates the high- and low-pressure areas of the pump, and a solenoid valve opens and closes the path from the low-pressure area. This allows for treating each pump cylinder as an individual source. When no solenoid valves are energized, the low-pressure source remains available to the piston during the complete revolution of the cam. The piston simply cycles fluid out and back in to the low-pressure core. Because it is effectively taken out of the circuit, it requires very little energy. In the event of electrical power failure, the DDP fails to a no-flow, low-pressure condition. When a solenoid valve is energized, the piston draws from the low-pressure core and then exhausts into the high-pressure core. As an example of how the technology works, if each of the six pistons has a displacement of 0.61 in3 (10 cm3), total displacement would be 3.7 in3 (60 cc). At 1,800 rpm, the flow potential would be 28.5 gpm (108 lpm). As each piston is put in service when its control solenoid is energized, the potential flow is increased by 4.8 gpm (18 lpm). If part of a work cycle requires only 14.3 gpm (54 lpm), only three of the solenoids can be energized strategically to produce the required output. Simplified diagram of a six-piston Digital Displacement Pump with solenoids energized in full-flow condition. Energizing the solenoids also can be timed differently so that only a portion of the piston displacement is sent to the high-pressure core. Using the same six-piston pump example, if the flow demand is 16.6 gpm (63 lpm), the displacement of 3 pistons would be required. This could be accomplished by energizing three solenoids to put three pistons in service and one solenoid to close the path to the low-pressure side as the piston reached half stroke. This would cause half of the piston's displacement to enter the pressure stream. Another approach would be to provide an average flow per minute by energizing all the solenoids for 1,044 revolutions and then leaving them de-energized for 756 revolutions. If these approaches cause unwanted power ripples, the same flow could be achieved by timing each of the six solenoids to cause the pistons to displace only 5.8 cc per cycle by turning them on at 58% of the stroke. The DDP can mimic an infinitely variable displacement pump closely without maintaining a constant core pressure. The individual pistons can be at inlet pressure regardless of the pressure at the outlet of the pump. In addition, the output of each piston can be isolated so the pump can provide flow to multiple circuits. In the example, six separate functions could be fed from one single DDP, each with varying flow up to 4.8 gpm (18 lpm).3. Diesel & Petrol - what's the difference? CPS Fuels Information SheetDiesel and unleaded petrol are both hydrocarbon mineral fuels derived from crude oil extracted from the earth by drilling and pumping. Varoius liquid fuels (Diesel, Gas Oil, Heating Oil & Petrol), gasses, plus other useful hydrocardon derivatives, are all refined from crude oil by a process of boiling and condensation known as fractional distillation. At the refinery distillation columns are used to separate the crude oil into different molecules and substances, at different temperatures. Diesel is refined at a higher temperature than petrol and has a certain viscosity according to the different surrounding temperatures (unlike petrol). Diesel also has denser and less explosive' properties, making it more suitable for heating applications, as well as for fuelling the internal combustion engines of vehicles. The fuels in the Diesel range are known as middle distillates, whereas Petrol, is known as coming from the Petroleum spirit range. Each fuel requires a different combustion process in order for the fuel to burn and the engine to operate. They are similar but there are key differences to note. The most obvious difference is that for the pistons to be powered in an engine, they depend upon different ignition systems. The petrol engine needs a spark to ignite the vapour and air mixture produced by the carburettor when it is compressed in the combustion chamber. A series of four piston strokes completes the cycle. Initially, the vaporised fuel and air is drawn into the combustion chamber via an open intake valve; the piston then compresses the mixture as it moves up the chamber and at the correct moment a plug produces a high voltage spark that explodes the gas and forces the piston back down. As the piston moves back up the chamber the intake valve is shut and an exhaust valve opened by way of a connecting cam-shaft operating the valves timing and allowing the spent gasses to be expelled. Finally, the exhaust valve shuts and the intake valve opens again allowing the fuel mixture back into the chamber as the piston moves downward, completing the cycle. There are normally four pistons fitted on a crankshaft so that they complement each other in performing and continuing each of the four functions. The vertical motion of the pistons translate mechanically through a connecting crank and drive shaft to the wheels, propelling the vehicle forwards or backwards depending on gear selection. The diesel engine generally has a similar four stroke/four piston configuration as the petrol engine, except it does not have a sparking ignition system in order to motivate the pistons, but instead relies initially on an electrically heated glow-plug to ignite the fuel injected into the combustion chamber when the engine is cold and first being started. Similarly to the petrol engine, valves connected to a cam-shaft operate in synchronisation with the pistons' four stroke timing. Diesel engines are usually considered more efficient on fuel economy than petrol engines, and more robust. They are more difficult to stall as they operate at lower rpm (the revolutions of the shaft per minute) and have higher torque making them good at towing and suitable as work vehicles, such as tractors. Torque is a little like the mechanical advantage you exert through leverage, however, this does not ordinarily translate into speed. Petrol cars tend to have more power and higher rpm, equating to faster speed, more wear and tear on the engine, and less fuel economy. CPS Fuels can supply bulk diesel locally to your own fuel station, or nationally using the extensive Keyfuels fuel card bunker network to your vehicles on the road.
All About Fire Safety Valves
One of the more recent developments in industrial tools to prevent fire is the introduction of fire safety valves. These valves are designed to prevent a fire from spreading if the fuel valve gets damaged or causes a leakage. A valve is a device that adjusts, directs, or controls the flow of a fluid by opening, closing, or partially blocking various passageways. Valves are technically a type of fitting but are usually discussed separately. In an open valve, fluid flows from higher pressure to lower pressure. The simplest kind of valve is simply a freely hinged flap that drops to obstruct flow one way but is pushed open by fluid flowing the opposite way. This ancient valve is called a check valve, as it stops or "checks" the flow in one direction. Modern valves may regulate pressure or flow downstream and operate on sophisticated automation systems. Valves have industrial applications for controlling processes, residential uses such managing water flow to dish and clothes washers and taps in the home. They are found in almost every industrial process, including mining, water and sewage processing, power generation, food manufacturing, processing of oil, gas and petroleum, chemical and plastic manufacturing, and many other fields. Fire-safe valves are spring-loaded valves that are thermally actuated. In case of fire, they close automatically and stop the fuel flow. The fuel flow from the crankcase of the engine and the reserve oil supply gets hindered, thus minimizing the chances of leakage. Spring-loaded valves help with preventing the flow of fuel such as oil, gas, petrol, and other combustibles, and are useful and effective against any damage. The benefits of using fire-safe valves in a system are the protection of human life, lower insurance rates, and the protection of equipment and the building. It is because of these benefits that the use of these valves is highly recommended and appreciated. These days, many companies offer an extensive range of fire-safety valves to provide protection even in high temperature and high-pressure conditions. A fire safety valve aims to keep ignitable fluids away from a flame. These valves close when exposed to heat, separating a flammable liquid from the heat source. They close in the midst of overheating of the pipeline, brought on by fire or similar events. The obligation to use fire safety valves is subject to any tenets, regulations, and laws concerning the unique methodology, plant, pipeline, or vessel. Fire-safe ball valves use a combination of a floating ball, graphoil seals, and metal-to-metal seating to provide tight shut-off while preventing external stem leakage. In normal working conditions, the ball rests against two seats, ensuring bubble-tight closure. When the valve is exposed to a temperature above the limits the seats can withstand (for example, 450F), the seats become deformed and are subject to extrusion. When the seats have been completely destroyed, the ball in the valve will come to rest firmly against the end cap, producing a metal to metal closing. Stem seals, which have high temperature-resistant properties, further restrict leakage in conjunction with a blow-out proof anti-static stem, so that the flammable fluid stays separate from the heat source that may ignite it. A fire-safe valve may also be made up of four main mechanisms: a spring pack, a trigger assembly, mounting hardware, and a fusible link. The components work in unison to close the valve should a fire be detected within a facility. The fusible link is the key part of the assembly. It keeps the valve open by maintaining tension on a spring pack through the trigger assembly. When a fire breaks out, the fusible link separates once it is heated to a certain high temperature, which releases the spring pack and allows it to close the valve. A fire-safety valve with fusible links has a primary drop-tight seat, usually made of TFE, along with a second seat made of metal for isolation in a fire. The secondary seat also has graphite seals for further protection. This means that the shut-off valves can be paired with any quarter-turn ball valve, butterfly valve, or plug valve.

CAN Bus: Nodes powered by different Potential SourcesYou have two options:Either way, you need a dedicated signal ground CAN_GND, as specified by the ISO standard. This is particularly important in automotive and industrial applications where motors, coils or valves etc are present.Also note that the tolerated absolute maximum potential difference on the CANH/CANL pins varies quite a lot depending on CAN transceiver. In any event, your car ground potential will be nowhere near the household mains or laptop battery grounds, so if you plan to troubleshoot your CAN bus at all - which involves a PC - you need a signal ground for that alone2. Need a higher flow rate kitchen faucet?If everything you say is true and correct, I would say that you have a very unusual problem. Before you bother doing anything else, I would suggest that you go down to a good, local, & reputable plumbing shop in your area. Explain your problem to them and see what they say. FAUCETS them selves are typically not the cause of the problems that you are experiencing. Usually it is the, areators, faucet cartridges, supply lines or valves being the problem due to corrosion and/or grit & debris build-up in them. Anyway, good luck3. How to Know When the Valve Guides Are Worn OutHow to Know When the Valve Guides Are Worn Out Valve guides are integral to the proper operation of engines. The guides help regulate the air intake and compression by keeping valves in place as the engine works. Guides also cool down the valves, with the guide absorbing about one-quarter of the heat generated. By constantly accommodating the valve stems as they thrust in and out with great friction, the guides are susceptible to eventually wearing out. This can cause of bevy of problems. There are several ways to determine if your vehicle's valve guides are worn out. Observe your car when you accelerate and brake. If you see a billow of smoke from the exhaust pipe -- especially any blue smoke, which is caused by burning oil -- it is a sign that the valve guides are worn. Time how long it takes the car to consume a new quart of engine oil. Worn valve guides cause a much faster oil consumption rate. Open the hood, and locate the valve guides, using the owner's manual for guidance. Move the valve into the guide, and try to jiggle it from side to side. Any movement in the guide indicates that the valve guide has corroded. Measure the inside circumference of the valve guide, and the outer circumference of the valve with a gauge set. Compare the data with the optimum measurements listed in the owner's manual to test whether the valve guides are worn. Locate the spark plugs based on information in the owner's manual, and check for signs of gray or brown debris. If the ash appears on only one side of the spark plug, it could be a sign of worn valve guides. Buy a gauge set specifically made to measure valve guides at an auto parts store for the most accurate data. Do not attempt to handle or measure valve guides unless the engine is completely cool.

Do You Know How Your Gas Engine Works
Humans need food to create the energy to hike Camelback Mountain, go to work, and even to get out of bed in the morning. Just as you need the energy to get moving, so does your vehicle's engine. In fact, the main task of the engine is to create energy from fuel to generate the power to move. This process is referred to as internal combustion as it literally creates small, controlled explosions to create movement. There are several components within the engine that assist in this process. Here's what you need to know to understand how your gas engine works:The Basics and How They WorkThere are five basic components housed in the engine block that contribute to internal combustion: crankshaft, cylinders, connecting rods, pistons, and spark plugs. The cylinder head is the cover and holds two to four valves per cylinder, the intake and exhaust, and the spark plug. Pistons are attached to the crankshaft by the connecting rods and placed into the cylinders. The cylinder holds the piston in place and allows it to move up and down smoothly. There is one cylinder for each piston. The more pistons a vehicle contains, the more power the engine can produce, which is why vehicles with six, eight, or ten-cylinder engines are better for towing than a four-cylinder vehicle. The combustion cycle starts with the piston at the top of the cylinder. A four-stroke process, for example, is based on the total number of combined upward and downward motions or strokes, known as RPMs. The sequence of each cycle is as follows:• As the piston moves downward, the intake valve allows the mixture of fuel and air in.• The piston moves up the cylinder, compressing the mixture against the cylinder head.• The spark plugs create a spark that ignites the mixture creating a small, controlled detonation.• The reaction from the spark forces the piston in a downward direction. When the piston begins to move upwards again, the exhaust valve opens, allowing the carbon waste to be removed out through the exhaust system.This cycle will be repeated hundreds of times per minute in order to propel your vehicle down the road. A two-stroke engine works in a similar fashion; however, it completes the cycle with less strokes and utilizes ports to transfer fuel and exhaust as opposed to the valves. Four-stroke engines are preferred over two-stroke engines, as they are more fuel efficient and produce less harmful emissions.As the pistons move downward, the crankshafts that they are attached to, are forced to move in a circular motion. The timing belt (or chain, depending on your engine) is connected to the crankshaft and collectively, rotate the camshaft. The camshaft controls the opening of the intake and exhaust valves, which requires precise timing. Concurrent to moving in their circular motion, the crankshaft also transfers this motion to the transmission, which eventually turns the wheels.Because of the extreme heat the internal combustion engines produce, it is very important that the components are cooled and lubricated properly. to pistons, bearings, and valves. Similarly, the cylinder heads that store the intake and exhaust, commonly experience damage as a result of overheating or lack of maintenance. Regularly performed cooling flushes and oil changes help to keep your engine in a like-new state, ensuring each component is properly cooled or lubricated to operate smoothly. Checking your timing belt for cracks, abrasions, or misalignments and replacing it as needed, will also prevent your vehicle from overheating or unexpected breakdowns.The engine is an essential component in your vehicle and needs to be cared for properly with routine oil changes and other scheduled maintenance. or replacements due to lack of maintenance or minor repairs can get very costly.

If you are referring to the spring/ball combination that holds the shift lever rooster comb in gear like on a RWD Chrysler transmission, they do not use that method on a 41TE. Chrysler uses a spring steel lever with a roller on it to hold the rooster comb in place. I tried looking on line for a picture of the check ball locations, but came up empty.

How Do You Set the Valves in a 1962 Mercury Comet with a 2.4 L 6-cyl Engine?
I have a original shop manual for 60-62 ford Falcon and Jason is right on with his recommendation. know any one who wants to buy my manual let me know1. A New Pulse in Bag Houses | Industry Articles | Dwyer InstrumentsWhile many pulse valves physically do not look different, the internal components have changed. Dwyer pulse valves allow for easier maintenance, as well as improved reliability.Pulse valves have always been used in dust collection bag house systems. The purpose of this valve is to provide a quick short burstof air to release particulate that is collected on the cartridge filters, used in a dust collection system. The valve is typically mounted to a manifold that would provide the needed air pressure. On most collectors you will see one valve per cartridge filter. The picture to the right displays a typical collector, filter, and valves mounted at the top of the system.The pulse valves are typically controlled by a timer control board, such as the Dwyer Series DCT600 or DCT500A , or a programmable logic controller (PLC). The timer board will cycle through each valve once a predetermined pressure drop across the filters is reached, relieving particulate from the filters to maintain a low differential pressure. Through the use of pulse valves and a timer control board, a user can maintain their system at optimum conditions allowing for longer life out of the cartridge filters.To better service dust collectors, Dwyer has released the Series DCS and RDCS Springless Diaphragm Valves. These valves combine a new springless diaphragm technology into our previous valve housing. A springless diaphragm valve combines the spring typically used for controlling the diaphragm and the valve into a single component; Dwyer uses a thermoplastic polyurethane diaphragm. The combination of these two components into a single diaphragm allows for easier field service and replacement. With using an elastomer diaphragm for air pulse control, this allows for a more reliable and consistent pulses versus the previous spring style which can change as the spring ages.To allow for all types of systems, the DCS and RDCS pulse valves are configured with both NPT process connections and coupling connections for a quicker installation. The valves can also be purchase with an integral coil/solenoid or a remote mount unit, where a solenoid valve would need to be mounted in a separate enclosure.2. 1959 Mercedes 220S,1971 Mercedes 220, fuel questions?The biggest difference is that various chemicals are used in place of tetraethyl lead. Contrary to the mythology that lead "lubricates" valves, it does nothing of the sort. What it does do is build up deposits on the valves (especially the exhaust valve), providing some insulation. Without lead, it's like a blacksmith pounding on a red hot horseshoe: the overheated valve seat can recess into the head. This is only really a problem with cast iron heads operating at high RPM, because cast iron is a poor thermal conductior. I believe all of your cars have aluminum heads with steel seats, these should be resistant to the problem. And vintage cars are rarely driven at the limits, so the valve seats wo not get as hot. You should be fine. I have several vintage cars and have never worried about unleaded fuel. However, ethanol can be a problem. If possible, you want to avoid using ethanol enhanced fuels in older cars. The reason is that older hoses and pump diaphagms tend to degrade rapidly in ethanol. If your fuel lines, carbs, and fuel pump have been redone in the last 20 years, the probability is that you are fine. But if your fuel system still has vintage rubber anywhere, beware of ethanol. I almost forgot the 240D. I've always used Mercedes Diesels as daily drivers. Most of them go hundreds of thousands of miles without a fuel related problem (as long as the fuel does not get contaminated with water and you change your filters regularly). Recently, the US went to ultra low sulfur Diesel. In raw form, ULSD has less lubricity than the old stuff, so it has the potential to cause pump failure. But the refiners (at least in the northeast) have been mixing a little biodiesel in with it. This not only increases the lubricity, it raises cetane a couple of points. So far, I've found it works better than the old stuff. We will see if there's any impact on durability.3. Are all blow off valves the same size from the gasket area ?A "Blow Off Valve"?

Washing Machine Shutoff Valve Won't Close
Our original washer valves were 1/2" multi-turn with rubber washer to brass seat and they were sweated onto the 1/2" copper tubing. The sweat joint was exposed in the box so I did not have to open up the drywall below the box. When I redid them I sweated on a fitting going to 1/2" FIP so I could thread in valves.I thought the new quarter turn ball valves I got from HD or Lowe's were themselves 1/2" FIP and I got a "nipple" ( 1/2" MIP x 1/2" MIP) to connect the two 1/2" FIP joints on the supply and the valve, respectively. But looking at the valve it appears that the valves are actually 1/2" MIP. I don't know if this is the best way to do this. I had a lot of trouble with getting the threaded joint to stop seeping. I can see why the professionals prefer to sweat the valve in. But for an amateur using a torch inside a wall risks starting a fire. The suggestion of using a SharkBite is a good one.EDITI said above that I had considerable trouble getting these valves to stop seeping and I think I now realize why--the threaded tubes on these long shank valves are surely straight, parallel and are not tapered! Long shanks cannot tapered. They could be tapered at the ends and straight above that, but that would show .Only short shank valves can be tapered, Short shank valves of course could be straight, but almost certainly (at least in the US) would be tapered. I redid these three times and finally got it to a very slow seep which plugged up over a week or so. But this is not an acceptable installation. These valves were probably intended for sweating 1/2" copper tubing inside the shank. The threads were probably intended for a pair of nuts to clamp it to these now ubiquitous plastic boxes• Related QuestionsHow do you avoid mold in a washing machine?Assuming that you have a front loading washing machine follow these steps in order to remove and prevent mold in your washing machine.Try using less detergent/fabric softener. It is recommended that you use 1 tablespoon on detergent/fabric softener to wash your clothes.Keep the door open (by having the door closed you are trapping moisture and steam inside your unit and that is why the mold is forming)Check the rubber gasket (this is the most common place where mold grows)If you are using mainly cold water to wash your clothes be sure to run a warm/how water soak for your last cycle will help dissolve the bio-film buildupClean the trap or drain pump. Items such as lint, coins, bra wires, screws that may be trapped there might be the underlining issue. It can clog your filter causing the water to drain slowly which will cause an odor or even mold to occur.VinegarTry adding a cup of vinegar directly into the gasket with your clothes and let your washer run on the longest cycle it has. You may even want to consider adding an additional cup during the rinse cycle, and your mildew stench should be gone! WHITE vinegar works best!Baking Soda!Add a cup of regular baking soda to your clothes in the wash cycle. Use the longest and hottest wash cycle you haveAffreshAffresh is specifically designed to penetrate, dissolve, and remove odor-causing residue that can accumulate in washers. Using this cleaner monthly can eliminate mold in your washing machineBleachMix warm water and bleach in a bowl, soak a rag in it and wipe it down, leave it for 15-30 minutes. Next do a wash cycle with bleach and then let the washer air out.All in all the easiest way to avoid mold in your washing machine is to keep the door/lid open as well as the fabric softener dispenser!I hope these help!How do you avoid mold in a washing machine?------Why does my washing machine smell so bad?There are several possible reasons why your washing machine smells. The most common reason is poor maintenance. Yes, this may surprise you, but many washing machine users have no idea how to maintain their machines. Simple maintenance steps should be taken periodically to guarantee the efficiency of the machine. Simply because your machine cleans things does not mean it does not need to be cleaned - or at least looked after. Your washing machine needs as much attention as any other gadget or machine!Another possible reason why your washing machine may be smelling is if some parts of it develop a fault. Like all electrical gadgets, washing machines are prone to damage and faults. A mechanical part of it may develop some random fault which may cause the smell. What you need to do, then, is to employ the services of professionals in the field who will inspect the machine for you and ascertain what the problem is. Although a washing machine does simple things, it is a complex barrage of circuits and wires so do not attempt to 'repair' it yourself if you do not have the necessary skills and knowledge involved.New washing machines have hoses and drains that let out used water in them. When those drains are clogged, some smells may be emanating because of the residue inside the drains. That, naturally, will cause such smell. There are many things that one can do to prevent such smell.Another reason could be the installation of the washing machine. Many washing machines are installed incorrectly. And though they may work in the meantime, such washing machines run high risks of developing faults which can then lead to the foul smell. This is why installing a washing machine on one's own is not entirely advised. Faults may occur as a result of such installation. Some professionals deal with washing machine installation and repair. The services of such professionals should be procured to avoid any disasters.Read More: Washing Machine Smells Like Sewage------What is the best way to move my new washing machine into my basement?Obviously, paying the store to deliver is the smart way to go. That way, you aren't responsible if your expensive new washer gets damaged. Okay, I get it...you're going to do it yourself. There are a couple of options. Renting an appliance dolly makes the most sense, but you can probably make do with your standard dolly (assuming it is rated for the weight). Your washer probably weighs a little less...but within spitting distance of 200 lbs. Depending on the method you choose, the weight may be reduced by friction, but worst case is that each of you will need to lift (or hold back) no more than 100lbs.If you opt to use your regular dolly, you'll want to strap the washer to it (like on an appliance dolly). Then you get one person above, and one person below. Walk it down the stairs, one step at a time and take time to rest mid-way, if needed. Gravity will do the work. You just have to control it for 8 inches at a time. Make a few practice runs with the empty box to be sure you have the hang of going step by step, and that there is enough clearance. The last thing you need is to get stuck halfway!The other method is to slide it. In fact, just last week my wife and I slid a new water heater into the basement. I got a long 2x10 and laid it along the steps as a slide. Then we laid it down at the balance point on the top step and both of us got below it to guide it down. Friction helps reduce the weight, so it's quite manageable. Best if it's still in the box, otherwise it'll get scratched up. Sounds like the box won't fit through the door, but you could at least lay cardboard under it.------Where is the best Whirlpool Washing Machine Service Center in Hyderabad?Hi,The four cycles that every Whirlpool Washing Machine like every washing machine performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin.

It can remove impurities covered on the surface of sand and destroy the water vapor layer that coats the sand at the same time so as to dehydrate and play a part in effectively washing and cleaning the sand. The clay washing plant can also be equipped with coarse and fine powder separator and dust removal equipment if choosing dry production process. Configuration of natural sand is relatively simple, which can be simply equipped with sand washer and belt conveyor to carry out production.Artificial sand production line is composed of jaw crusher, sand making machine, sand washing machine, belt conveyor, vibrating screen and vibrating feeder. Its production process is that the stone is evenly fed by vibrating feeder to jaw crusher for coarse crushing, coarsely crushed materials are sent to sand making machine through belt conveyor to carry out further crushing; the finely crushed materials are conveyed to vibrating screen for screening, and the materials that meet the granularity requirements of finished products are sent to sand washing machine for cleaning, the cleaned materials are called finished products. The materials that do not meet the granularity requirements of finished products will return to sand making machine through vibrating screen for re-processing. Granularity of finished products can be adjusted and classified according to requirements of customers.Highly efficient sand washing equipment is vital equipment in construction and building materials industry. Increase of efficiency of sand washer will be an important link of saving energy and resource. Sand washing machine which works coordinating with other sand making equipment plays a huge role in construction projects. The current efficient sand washing machine has more and more superior features like novel design and structure, large processing capacity, mature production technology and so on.
What Would Cause an Automatic Transmission to Whine ?
depending on what type of transmission it is will depend on what is making the noise and why. like is it a 350 turbo or a 4R100. front wheel drive CD4E or a 440T4. with the various styles of transmissions it could be a list of things. the most common problem almost all transmissions share is front pump failure. this will cause a variety of things from whinning to burn up trans. the pump can fail in a few ways. by excessive wear to a modulating valve hanging up in it. there's also chances of valve body problems like valves hanging up in it. to simple things as low fluid level. some of the newer model transmissions have a full set of electronic solenoids that control pressure and shifts that could be causing a problem as well. outside of hydraulic systems there's bearings that could be bad to a sungear or planetary system in them thats worn out. in this case i would have to start by checking the fluid and work from there. if fluid level is fine then its time to see a transmission specialist, either at a trans shop or dealership.1. Smoke/Gas smell coming from oil cap in 95 civic?Lets separate out a few issues- The gasoline smell in the crank case is because of blow by. This blow by is to some degree normal. But it can be excessive as the rings fail. As rings fail the crank case is subject to more pressure and if the problem is excessive leads to failure of gaskets such places as the oil pan and valve covers. If you are not loosing coolant and the system is sucking coolant back into the engine when it cools- the odds are that the head gasket is fine. Now on the average a car this old would have about 210000 miles on it. This is well over the design life expectancy of the rings, valves and valve seals. While Honda's are known to get 250000 miles out of an engine- it might be wise to start shopping for a replacement engine (if you like the car) or a new car. If you are a gear head- start looking into what engines make nice swaps for power and act accordingly.2. What concepts/rules apply for multi-stage pumping of waterI do not believe that this would be necessary.Most pumps (not constant volume ones) have a relationship between flow rate and pressure jump (often called a pump curve). Since the entrance diameter of the pump does not change, you've got (basically) the same momentum in the pipe at a given flow rate regardless of how it gets that way. Another way of looking at it is that any effect of the momentum is already taken into account experimentally when the manufacturer generates the pump curve.My memory is a bit hazy on this, but I do seem to recall that some kinds of pumps do not respond well to particularly non-uniform and/or turbulent flows entering them. The net result was that you would want to have a decent (ten-ish diameters) section of straight pipe leading up to the pump after any bends,valves etc.3. Did i blow my car engine?If your oil was leaking at a significant rate, it is possible that you were running it for some time with very little to no oil in it. If this is the case, there is a high probability that something in the engine might have warped as oil is the lubricant that reduces the friction on the internal engine components. I can see the situation possibly occurring like this: You hit your oil pan (which is located at the bottom of the car and is essentially your oil reserve) and it burst open, causing the oil leak and possibly the dragging sound. Then as you continued to run the engine, the internal temperature for your cams and valves responsible for combustion timing went too high up and they warped, and after you turned the car off, they no longer operated well enough to even allow the engine to turn over (run through its cycle) properly. That could be hell to fix, but hopefully you have a good mechanic...
Knowledge About L&t Valves Kanchipuram Plant: Political Legacy of L&t Valves Kanchipuram Plant
Political legacy of l&t valves kanchipuram plantAs a legislator in the General Assembly of Maryland, he was known for his 11th-hour strong arming to get votes behind closed doors. He also owned land in every county in the State of Maryland in an effort to show his commitment to the entire state. He practiced law with his wife Hazel (19171996). The statue of Louis L. Goldstein, outside the Louis L. Goldstein Treasury Building in the state capital of Annapolis, was created by Jay Hall Carpenter and unveiled on April 3, 2002.Goldstein Hall at his alma mater Washington College is named for him. The "Goldstein Award" at the college's annual commencement awards the graduate with the greatest potential for success in public service. All of Maryland Route 2/4 in Calvert County is named after Goldstein.The Calvert County Democratic Party's annual dinner banquet is also named after Louis L. Goldstein. Goldstein deputy, Robert L. "Bobby" Swann was appointed Comptroller after Goldstein's death by then-governor Parris Glendening. Former four-term Mayor of Baltimore and two-term Governor William Donald Schaefer later ran for the office of Comptroller in November 1998. Goldstein had already announced he was running for another term before his death and would have almost certainly been re-elected even at age 85. Schaefer, tired of being out of public office, and still popular with a wide support among the electorate, won easily following Goldstein's death.Ironically, Schaefer and Goldstein sat on the Maryland Board of Public Works together when Goldstein was comptroller and Schaefer was governor. The two were not particularly close personally or professionally, although Goldstein was almost always gracious but tough at BPW meetings. Longtime Maryland Senate President Thomas V. (Mike) Miller, Jr., considers Goldstein one of the greatest politicians he has ever known. Goldstein rarely forgot a name or at least a face.His Annapolis office was taken apart piece-by-piece after his death at the guidance of his longtime friend and deputy comptroller, Swann, and was replicated at the Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum located in St. Leonard, Maryland.------In popular culture of l&t valves kanchipuram plantFinnish Big Brother contestant Tero Savikuja mentioned "L'amour toujours" as his favourite song when he attended the TV show, and it was played several times in the Big Brother house during that season. There is also a locally popular Finnish version of the song on YouTube called "Seppo on bi", which translates as "Seppo is a bisexual", mentioning to a popular Finnish drama series Salatut elmt and its protagonist Seppo Taalasmaa. The name probably derives from its rhythmical uniformity with the song's distinctive synthesizer riff.D'Agostino is credited in "Fly With U", a song by Far East Movement from their album Dirty Bass, which contains some elements of "L'amour toujours".The instrumental of this song is heavily sampled on "Dream on the Dancefloor" by Basshunter, featured in his album Calling Time.In September 2015, Tisto released a new edit of "L'amour toujours" performed by Dzeko & Torres, featuring vocals by Delaney Jane.Brazilian singer Clarice Falco released an alternative rock cover of this song in her 2016 album Problema Meu.In 2018 the hookline of the song was used for a remix of "In My Mind" by Lithuanian DJ Dynoro, which became a no.1 hit in Germany.The song is featured throughout the ending credits of the 2019 crime thriller film Uncut Gems.------Biography of l&t valves kanchipuram plantL'Estrange attended St Aloysius' College in Sydney and then studied history at the University of Sydney residing at St John's College, and graduated in 1974.

Packing Fibers and Their Industrial Applications in Pumps and Valves
Understand compression packing materials before the selection process to ensure compatibility with the application.Compression packing, made from different packing fibers, is one of the oldest and most common sealing devices. It prevents product leakage and extend the lives of pumps, valves and other rotating equipment. Constructed of relatively soft materials, packing compresses within the stuffing box between the rotating member and the body of the pump or valve to form a seal.By tightening the gland against the outboard ring, pressure transmits to the packing set, which expands the rings radially, creating the seal. The different packing braid designs include: multi-lok, square braid, braid over core, braid over braid, and twisted.Before selecting compression packing, specifiers must research the different types of fiber materials. This article details eight different types of packing fibers. Each should be chosen according to their compatibility with the application. The eight types are:Flax packing fibers form packing for brine, cold water, and cold oils. This economical solution serves the shipping industry in stern tubes and some power generation applications in hydroelectric turbines. Flax fiber handles shaft speeds of 1,885 feet per minute (fpm), temperatures to 220°F, and a 5 to 9 pH range.Acrylic fiber creates a good, general-service packing. It is commonly referred to as Teflon or graphite by many end users. This material is used for constructing packing used to seal:In addition, optional PTFE coatings protect the fibers from chemical attack and ensure good break-in characteristics. Some acrylic fiber may be braided throughout with PTFE. Saturating and sealing the fibers with the PTFE particles protects them from chemical action. A surface coating of PTFE may be applied after braiding. In addition, a special high-temperature lubricant helps ensure good break-in characteristics.This low-cost packing seals rotary and reciprocating pumps and agitators in the chemical and oil and gas industries. It withstands shaft speeds to 1,885 fpm, temperatures to 500°F, and a pH range of 4 to 10.Novoloid packing fibers are some of the most popular. An excellent, all-around material, it has good thermal conductivity characteristics and withstands higher shaft speeds. Some novoloid packing may have a special lubrication process applied that transforms each individual fiber into a reservoir of lubrication for longer packing life.Because novoloid contains no silicon, sulfur, or wax, it is an excellent alternative to graphite packing. Primarily, it seals applications in the chemical and pulp and paper industries in which graphite cannot be used. This high-performance alternative contains fluids and slurries in rotating and reciprocating pumps, washer journals, liquor pumps, refiners, and digesters.Also, it works well for many general service applications including:• Multiuse in chemical plants and pulp and paper millsNovoloid fibers handle shaft speeds to 1,800 fpm, temperatures to 500°F, and a pH range of 1 to 13 (except in concentrated, hot sulfuric or nitric acid).Aramid performs well in extremely abrasive environments. These fiber strands can be individually treated with a PTFE coating and a light, inert oil to improve resistance to:In abrasive services, it also serves as a bull or anti-extrusion ring-a ring of packing used at one or both ends of a packing set. It tolerates shaft speeds to 1,800 fpm, temperatures to 500°F, and a pH range of 3 to 11.PTFE fibers have a high resistance to chemicals with low levels of friction and adhesion. PTFE fibers perform excellently in corrosive services. However, they have poor thermal conductivity without graphite lubricants.Sometimes, PTFE filament packing is prelubricated to provide a softer, more flexible packing with improved peripheral speed characteristics and exothermic properties. It can be used for any equipment in which braided packing is commonly used.PTFE fibers operate successfully in chemical processing, pumps, and other rotating equipment. They handle shaft speeds to 1,200 fpm (no graphite) and 4,900 fpm (with graphite). They withstand temperatures to 500°F, and a pH range of 0 to 14.This family of PTFE is constructed from an expanded PTFE that encapsulates graphite or a proprietary lubricant. The expansion process produces a microstructure that has a higher strength than PTFE filament fibers.It performs well in color-sensitive environments, such as the food and beverage industry, and may comply with FDA and USDA requirements under Title 21 Food and Drugs, 178.2570, Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact, 177.1550, Perfluorocarbon Resins.Expanded PTFE fiber, treated with special lubricants that contain no sulfur, silicone, or wax, handles shaft speed ranges from 1,200 fpm (no graphite) and unlimited (with graphite). In addition, it withstands temperatures to 550°F, and a pH range of 0 to 14.These proven industry performers excel because of its manufacturing method: the heat treatment process of a synthetic fiber. These fibers experience multiple heat treatments to achieve the desired carbon or graphite content.Carbon and graphite packing can also be treated with PTFE to help prevent color contamination and carbon migration.This fiber performs well in high-pressure, high-temperature and high-shaft-speed applications. It handles shaft speeds to 4,000 fpm, temperatures to 650°F, and a pH range of 0 to 14.Flexible graphite tape is manufactured by exfoliating, expanding and then compressing the graphite flakes into a specific density. It has excellent thermal properties. Also, when mixed with reinforcing fibers, it becomes a yarn. It is used in high-pressure, high-temperature and high-shaft-speed applications.This tape handles shaft speeds greater than 4,000 fpm, temperatures of 850°F in oxidizing services, and a pH range of 0 to 14.For even higher temperatures, some braided packing is made of pure graphite fibers. A fine, submicron powder of inorganic graphite saturates these fibers. This packing is rated for high-temperature applications and is used in the following equipment when minimum leakage is required under severe service conditions:In addition, sealing technology experts recommended it for strong caustics, acids, chemical and high-pressure steam. This style works best in high-temperature and high-shaft-speed applications including those in the nuclear industry and those that require temperatures up to 850°F.To summarize, correctly specifying braided packing requires knowledge of the fiber's chemical and thermal properties. Choose from a family of packing that will cover all the processes in the plant while providing peace-of-mind performance.However, this is Step 1 toward success. Proper installation and maintenance are the other two components of successful operations. Correct technique should be followed when replacing packing as well.how does the submarines work?This question is a bit vague, but I will give you the basics. Submarines are obviously airtight, or if you prefer, waterproof. This means that no unwanted water can get in. They have ballast tanks. These are tanks that have openings to let water in, with valves to control and stop the flow of water. They also have air pumps. When air is pumped into a ballast tank, it forces the water out. When a submarine wants to dive they fill the ballast tanks with water. When they want to suface, they pump air back in, and this makes the submarine buoyant again. Modern subs are nuclear powered. The nuclear generator makes steam which powers all the electrical processes of the sub. They even make their own air, and some are able to stay submerged for months.
Why Is There a Continuous Dripping Sound Coming From My Toilet?
My intuition tells me this is the fill valve, it stopped when the fill line / valve were de-pressured overnightThere is a dripping sound coming from my toilet. It happens about once a minute constantly. I've eliminated every possibility I could think of:I put food coloring into the tank and waited 20 minutes. The water in the bowl did not change color. Furthermore it does not exhibit the other sign of a leaking flapper, the tank occasionally refilling.I observed the refill tube and did not see anything dripping from it.I turned off the water and the sound continued. After leaving the water off overnight, the sound stopped.Unlike How to fix dripping sound coming from toilets? this happens pretty much constantly, not just when material is added to the bowl.Any other ideas? Or problems with my beliefs above?UPDATE:As per a comment on the accepted answer, I replaced the fill valve, and the sound went away. That was only three years ago. Now, the sound is back. Fill valves should last longer than three years, right? The new fill valve wasn't even the same brand or style as the old one.·OTHER ANSWER:There is a dripping sound coming from my toilet.
