Threadless designs of the flange connectors based on auto seals

The basic design options of the most common flange connectors are presented. The author marks the relevance of the problem of search of the optimum design solutions for the machine-building production of new special, fast-growing products class - stationary shut-off devices. One of the found solutions using the idea of the auto seal, which has been used in several series designs of stationary shut-off devices, is described here. The design of the auto seal, based on the principle of using the internal pressure of the working environment, is considered.

The company "Normdocs" held IX International Seminar on Standardization

Impact of point fixings of insulation on the thermotechnical homogeneity of facade systems

New requirements, taking into account the effect of the point heat-engineering heterogeneity, were introduced to the Russian regulations on thermal protection of buildings. The greatest energy-saving effect is achieved with the use of anchors, which were designed with the complex technology of hermetically closable "heat trap". A table, containing the comparative figures of applications of different types of disc dowels as part of facade insulation systems, is given here.

Anchoring: what does the test say?

Schemes of anchor fixings tests are presented. Comparative tests on different schemes are described. The analysis of test results is given. The author reveals the basic cause of discrepancies in the results - systematic error at the measurement of deformations with integrated sensors, caused by different stiffness of the elements.

The corrosion resistance of steel structures of facade systems with a ventilated gap

The factors of corrosion resistance of hinged facade systems, which should be considered when designing and installing these systems, are pointed. The results of comprehensive studies of the effect of insulation material on the corrosion resistance of stainless steels, aluminum alloys and carbon steels in conditions close to reality.

Application of hot melt adhesives at the repair of elements of the machines cooling system

The possibilities of application of hot melt adhesives at the repair of elements of cooling systems of cars are considered. The properties of hot melt adhesives are described. The chemical composition of hot melt adhesives is specified. The information about the application of adhesives and the operating conditions of glued elements is given.
