Title (EN) FUEL PICK-UP DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE PRÉLÈVEMENT DE CARBURANT
Abstract:
(EN) A fuel pick-up device (11) for a fuel tank (10) comprises a float (17) arranged for rising and falling with the level of fuel (F) in the tank (10) and a plurality of elongate flexible tubes (16a, 16b) extending helically from the float (17) to a fuel outlet (15) of the device (11), the float (17) being arranged for generally vertical movement within an apertured sleeve (13). The flexible tubes (16a, 16b) are sufficiently thin to allow the float (17) to freely rise and fall with the level of the fuel (F). However, the combined cross-sectional area of the ducts provided by the plurality of flexible tubes (16a, 16b) is sufficient to allow fuel to be drawn from the tank at a high flow rate sufficient for large engines.
(FR) Dispositif de prélèvement de carburant (11) pour un réservoir de carburant (10) comprenant un flotteur (17) agencé pour monter et descendre avec le niveau de carburant (F) dans le réservoir (10) et une pluralité de tubes flexibles allongés (16a, 16b) s'étendant de manière hélicoïdale depuis le flotteur (17) jusqu'à une sortie de carburant (15) du dispositif (11), le flotteur (17) étant agencé pour un mouvement généralement vertical à l'intérieur d'un manchon ajouré (13). Les tubes flexibles (16a, 16b) sont suffisamment fins pour permettre au flotteur (17) de monter et de descendre librement avec le niveau du carburant (F). Cependant, la surface de section transversale combinée des conduits fournis par la pluralité de tubes flexibles (16a, 16b) est suffisante pour permettre au carburant d'être aspiré depuis le réservoir à un débit élevé suffisant pour de grands moteurs.
