A method of installing an under-mount apron-front sink to a cabinet includes placing an under-mount apron-front sink onto a portion of the cabinet, wherein the under-mount apron-front sink extends through an opening disposed in a front wall of the cabinet and sliding the under-mount apron-front sink in a rearward direction through the opening until a front apron of the sink engages the front wall of the cabinet, wherein the front apron comprises a left end and a right end. A lateral distance between the left end and the right end of the front apron is greater than a lateral width of the opening of the cabinet such that the front apron at least partially overlaps the opening such that the opening is not visible with the sink installed.

A rough-in guide (100) for a valve body (200) includes a first side (7) and a second side (5). The first side includes a valve body retaining jaw (160) and a recessed region (20). The valve body retaining jaw is configured to selectively receive a first portion of the valve body and to secure the valve body to the rough-in guide during transport, the guide thus serving as a packaging. The recessed region is configured to receive a second portion of the valve body. The second side is opposite the first side comprising a valve body retaining clip (120). The valve body retaining clip is configured to selectively secure the valve body to the rough-in guide when installed on the construction site.

A retainer (100) for retaining a check valve to a valve body includes a continuous body (10), a first group of projections (40), and a second group of projections (50). The continuous body is configured to engage a slot of the valve body to secure the continuous body to the valve body. The continuous body is further configured to include an opening (30) configured to receive a portion of the check valve. The first group of projections is configured to extend radially from the continuous body. The first group of projections is further configured to contact the valve body to limit rotation of the retainer relative to the valve body. The second group of projections is configured to extend axially from the continuous body. The second group of projections is further configured to engage at least one of the check valve and the valve body.

An alternator includes an exciter field device generating an exciter magnetic field in a first air gap, an exciter armature device configured to rotate with respect to the exciter magnetic field and impart a first voltage in a first set of coils at the first air gap, a main stator device including a second set of coils, and a rotor field device configured to be energized by the first current in the first set of coils and generate a main magnetic field that imparts a second voltage on the main stator device at a second air gap. The main stator device and the exciter field device lie in on a common plane normal to an axis of rotation, and the exciter armature device is inwardly spaced from the exciter field device, main stator device, and the rotor field device.


Patent

A noise suppression system for an electric generator having a housing including an internal combustion engine and air-cooled alternator. A fan draws ambient cooling air into the housing for cooling the alternator. The system may include an acoustically designed noise suppression shroud forming a cavity which contains a plurality of parallel flow baffles. The baffles define air flow passages there-between which receive cooling air heated by the alternator. In one system, the baffles are configured and arranged to block a straight line of sight between the entrance and exit of each passage. The baffles may each further include sound deadening materials on one or both sides in some configurations. Heated cooling air flows into the shroud and through the passages before being discharged from the housing. The shroud is operable to suppress noise produced by the cooling air discharge flow. Various shroud configurations may include additional sound proofing features.
