Title: REDUCTANT DOSING UNIT COMPACT SIDE FEED INLET PORT
Abstract:
A side feed inlet port for an injector, which makes use of stamped parts to form a compact, high strength three-piece inlet port at a significantly reduced cost. By using an inner sleeve and an outer sleeve, injector sealing is accomplished using the interior sleeve, creating a sealing point, while allowing for inlet conduit attachment to the outer sleeve at, above, or below the sealing point of the DEF injector. The construction of the inlet port is such that there is proper sealing between the inner sleeve and one or more seals, while allowing for the connection between the inlet conduit and the outer sleeve to reduce the overall height of the inlet port, and therefore, the injector. The position of the inlet conduit may be altered without affecting the sealing connection between the inner sleeve and the seal(s), such that the desirable overall height may be achieved.
