Title (EN) EXTERNAL DEVICE INDICATING THAT A TANK IS FILLED UP
(FR) DISPOSITIF EXTERNE DE SIGNALISATION DU PLEIN D'UN RESERVOIR
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention concerns an external device for indicating that a fuel tank (2) is filled up comprising a container (8) linked to said tank and provided at its upper part with a vent hole (10) and in its lower part with a floater (11). Said device is characterised in that the base of said container (8) is arranged above or substantially at the same level as the maximum filling level of the tank (2), the container being linked by its base proximate to the tank (2) upper part by a communicating conduit (4a), while the floater (11) has an electric contact connected to a signal and control box (13) arranged proximate to the opening of the tank filling conduit (3), so as to generate at least a warning signal when said container is partly filled by the communicating conduit (4a) after the tank (2) has been completely filled. The invention is particularly designed to equip a reservoir (2) provided with an air intake conduit such as a boat tank and in that case, the container (8) is inserted between two parts (4a, 4b) of said conduit.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif externe de signalisation du plein d'un r�servoir (2) comportant un r�cipient (8) qui est reliaudit r�servoir et qui est pourvu � sa partie sup�rieure d'un �vent (10) et dans sa partie inf�rieure d'un flotteur (11), dispositif qui est notamment remarquable en ce que le fond dudit r�cipient (8) est dispos� au-dessus ou sensiblement au m�me niveau que le niveau maximum de remplissage du r�servoir (2), le r�cipient �tant reli� par son fond au voisinage de la partie sup�rieure du r�servoir (2) au moyen d'une conduite de communication (4a), tandis que le flotteur (11) pr�sente un contact �lectrique connect� � un bo�tier de signalisation et de commande (13) dispos� au voisinage de l'embouchure d'un conduit de remplissage (3) du r�servoir, afin de g�n�rer au moins un signal avertisseur lorsque ledit r�cipient est en partie rempli par la conduite de communication (4a) apr�s le remplissage complet du r�servoir (2). L'invention est notamment destin�e � �quiper un r�servoir (2) pourvu d'une condude prise d'air tel un r�servoir de bateau et dans ce cas, le r�cipient (8) est ins�r� entre deux parties (4a, 4b) de ladite conduite.
