Title (EN) URINARY CONTROL VALVE
(FR) SOUPAPE DE COMMANDE DE MICTION
Abstract:
(EN) A disc-like valve element (46) in a control valve (10) includes an outer peripheral ring (44) to which leaf elements (50 & 52) are integrally connected having a thickness which increases uniformly from the entire outer peripheral ring (44) to the axial center forming a conical shaped valve element when in a closed condition. The side of the valve element (46) facing the inlet end of the chamber is preferably flat functioning as a funnel to discharge urine when the valve element is moved to an open condition. The increased thickness at the axial center of the valve element (46) is preferably the result of the side of the valve element (46) facing the outlet end (48) of the valve chamber increasing in thickness from the ring (44) laterally inwardly and longitudinally outwardly to maximize flexibility of the leaf elements (50 & 52) adjacent the ring (44) and sealing at the axial center.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un élément discoïde (46) de soupape (10) de commande comportant un anneau périphérique extérieur (44) auquel sont reliés des éléments en feuilles (50 & 52) en faisant partie intégrante dont l'épaisseur qui croît uniformément depuis la totalité de l'anneau périphérique (44) jusqu'au centre axial constitue un élément conique de soupape (46) lorsqu'en position de fermeture. Le côté de l'élément de soupape (46) faisant face à l'extrémité d'entrée de la chambre, de préférence plat, fonctionne comme un entonnoir qui vide l'urine lorsque l'élément de soupape passe en position d'ouverture. L'accroissement d'épaisseur au niveau du centre axial de l'élément de soupape (46) résulte de préférence du fait que le côté de l'élément de soupape (46) faisant face à l'extrémité de sortie de la chambre croît en épaisseur depuis l'anneau latéralement vers l'intérieur et longitudinalement vers l'extérieur ce qui accroît la souplesse des éléments en feuilles (50 & 52) touchant l'anneau (44) et fermant au niveau du centre axial.
