An arc-resistant electrical terminal includes a mount portion and a wire receiving portion formed of an electrically conductive material. The wire receiving portion is configured to be crimped onto a wire. The mount portion includes a solid tongue having opposing face surfaces. An aperture is formed between the opposing face surfaces for connecting the terminal to a connection point. A layer of insulation material is formed on at least a portion of the tongue for preventing arcing at a connection point. A raised boss is formed to surround the aperture on at least one of the opposing face surfaces of the tongue, the raised boss providing an electrically conductive surface of the terminal free from the layer of insulation material for connection to a connection point.

A system includes a pump. The pump includes a piston configured to axially reciprocate within a body. The axial movement of the piston activates a first chamber valve and a second chamber valve. The system also includes a main valve configured to direct a flow to the pump to facilitate the axial movement which then transfers a fluid from a reservoir to a spray applicator. The system includes a runaway valve system fluidly coupled to the main valve and configured to detect a runaway state of the pump. The runaway valve system is configured to direct the main valve to stop operation of the pump in response to detection of the runaway state.

A novel changeover mechanism for a compressed air driven double diaphragm pump comprises a shaft slidably mounted through aligned apertures in opposing surfaces of the twin diaphragm chambers. At the center of the shaft between the two diaphragm chambers is provided an annular notch in to which is located an arm extending from a U shaped frame. The U shaped frame is pivotally mounted atop a valve plate which includes multiple ports. Positioned against a surface of the valve plate is a valve closure component which is configured to slide across the surface selectively obstructing the multiple ports. The valve closure component is held in place by a metal peg hingedly mounted in slots provided in parallel extension of the U shaped frame. Linear tension springs connect the hinged wire pusher with U shaped frame adjacent the pivot point. The springs bias the position of the valve closure component against the valve plate in an off center position.

An apparatus is provided for the attachment of brushes to the drive system of rotary floor scrubbing machines. In one embodiment, the apparatus provides for a scrubbing plate assembly suitable for attachment to the drive system of a rotary floor scrubbing machine. The scrubbing plate assembly has a scrubbing plate and an adapter plate. When the adapter plate is aligned and in contact with a scrubbing plate, the adapter plate locks to the scrubbing plate by axial movement of said adapter plate relative to said scrubbing plate.
