Title (EN) IMPROVED RETAINING STRUCTURE FOR A FUEL TANK MOUNTED VALVE BODY
(FR) STRUCTURE DE MAINTIEN AMELIOREE POUR UN CORPS DE SOUPAPE MONTE DANS UN RESERVOIR DE CARBURANT
Abstract:
(EN) In a two piece valve assembly (14) comprising a non-weldable lower body portion inserted into the fuel tank through an opening (12) in the tank wall (10), and an upper valve body portion or cover (20) made from a weldable material and designed to be connected to the lower valve body portion (16) and welded to the upper surface of the fuel tank wall (10), an improved assembly structure comprising a plurality of circumferentially-spaced support/retention tabs (26) are formed on the lower valve body (16). The support/retention tabs (26) allow the lower valve body (16) to rest on the upper surfaces of the fuel tank wall (10), and strengthen the well connection between cover (20), lower valve body (16) and the fuel tank wall (10).
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble soupape (14) en deux parties, comprenant une parie de corps inférieure non soudable, insérée dans le réservoir de carburant à travers un orifice (12) pratiqué dans la paroi (10) du réservoir, et une partie de corps supérieure ou couvercle (20), composée de matériau soudable et conçue pour être connectée à la partie corps (16) de soupape inférieure et soudée sur la surface supérieure de la paroi (10) du réservoir de carburant. Le corps de soupape (16) inférieur comprend une structure de montage améliorée comprenant une pluralité de pattes (26) de support/maintien espacées sur la circonférence.
