Title (EN) INFLATOR HAVING A RUPTURABLE IGNITER TUBE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE GONFLAGE AYANT UN TUBE D'AMORÇAGE CASSABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An inflator (10) for an inflatable vehicle occupant restraint system includes a housing (12) having at least two spaced walls (20 and 22) that are connected by a structural member (30) that normally maintains the spaced relationship. The structural member (30) serves as an igniter tube for supporting an igniter (18) therein, and is rupturable upon the occurrence of relatively high gas pressures internally of the housing to permit expansion of the housing (12) to increase its volume and reduce the gas pressure therein.
(FR)Un dispositif de gonflage (10) pour un système gonflable pour immobiliser l'occupant d'un véhicule comporte un logement (12) ayant au moins deux parois espacées (20 et 22) reliées par un élément structural (30) qui les maintient normalement espacées. L'élément structural (30) sert de tube d'amorçage pour supporter le dispositif d'amorçage (18) et il se rompt lorsqu'il apparaît une pression relativement élevée de gaz à l'intérieur du logement (12) pour permettre une expansion du logement (12) avec augmentation de son volume et une diminution de la pression interne du gaz.
