Title: FLUID SEPARATOR FOR A DISPLACEMENT MACHINE AND A METHOD FOR SEPARATING LUBRICANT AND WORKING FLUID IN A DISPLACEMENT MACHINE
Abstract:
A displacement machine (1) acting on a working fluid and being provided with a lubricant and working fluid separator (10), the fluid separator (10) comprising a separator volume (11) constrained by a shielding member (10a, 10b), a first fluid channel (12) providing fluid communication between a first and second inner volumes (90a, 90b) and the separator volume (11), a second fluid channel (14) providing fluid communication between the separator volume (11) and a working fluid return volume (15), wherein the fluid separator (10), the first fluid channel (12) and the second fluid channel (14) are fully contained within a full volume (9) of the displacement machine (1). A method for separating lubricant and working fluid in a displacement machine (1) is also described.
