Title (EN) ULTRASONIC FUEL INJECTOR
(FR) INJECTEUR DE CARBURANT À ULTRA-SONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fuel injector for delivering fuel to an engine in which a housing of the injector has an internal fuel chamber and at least one exhaust port in fluid communication with the fuel chamber. A valve member is moveable relative to the housing between a closed position in which fuel within the fuel chamber is inhibited against exhaustion from the housing, and an open position in which fuel is exhaustable from the housing. An ultrasonic waveguide separate from the housing and valve member is disposed at least in part within the fuel chamber to ultrasonically excite fuel within the fuel chamber prior to the fuel exiting through the at least one exhaust port in the open position of the valve member. An excitation device is operable in the open position of the valve member to ultrasonically excite the ultrasonic waveguide.
(FR)L'invention concerne un injecteur de carburant pour alimenter un moteur en carburant, le corps de l'injecteur comportant une chambre à carburant interne et au moins un orifice d'échappement en communication fluide avec la chambre à carburant. Un élément de soupape est mobile par rapport au corps entre une position fermée, dans laquelle le carburant à l'intérieur de la chambre à carburant est empêché de s'échapper du corps, et une position ouverte, dans laquelle le carburant peut s'échapper du corps. Un guide d'ondes ultrasoniques séparé du corps et de l'élément de soupape est disposé au moins en partie à l'intérieur de la chambre à carburant pour exciter par ultra-sons le carburant à l'intérieur de la chambre à carburant avant que le carburant ne sorte par ledit orifice d'échappement quand l'élément de soupape est en position ouverte. Un dispositif d'excitation peut fonctionner quand l'élément de soupape est en position ouverte pour exciter par ultra-sons le guide d'ondes ultrasoniques.
