Title
(EN) CROSSHEAD SYSTEM FOR STIRLING ENGINE
(FR) SYSTEME DE CROSSES DE PISTON D'UN MOTEUR STIRLING
Abstract
(EN)
A crosshead system (220) for a swashplate engine (10) such as a Stirling cycle type. A plurality of crossheads (222) are constrained to move in a reciprocating fashion by travelling along a pair of parallel guide rods (26). The crosshead system further includes a mechanism for adjusting a clearance between the crosshead elements and the opposed parallel face surfaces of the rotating swashplate. The adjustment mechanism includes a threaded adjuster cup (240) which is maintained in a lock position through a fastener which drives a conical cone (274) into the conical inside surface (276) of the adjuster sleeve thus fixing its rotated and hence linear position.
(FR)
L'invention se rapporte à un système de crosses de piston (220) d'un moteur à plateau oscillant (10) tel qu'un type de cycle de Sterling. Une pluralité de crosses de piston (222) sont contraintes d'effectuer un mouvement à va-et vient-en se déplaçant le long d'une paire de tiges de guidage parallèles (26). Ce système de crosses de piston comprend également un mécanisme de réglage du jeu entre les éléments de la tête de piston et les surfaces opposées parallèles du plateau oscillant rotatif. Le mécanisme de réglage comprend une coupelle filetée (240) maintenue dans une position de blocage par un élément de fixation qui commande un cône (274) se trouvant dans la surface interne conique (276) du manchon de réglage, fixant ainsi sa position rotative et donc linéaire.
