United States Patent O PUMP Mich., assignor to Clark Robert Lapsley, Buchanan,

Mich., a corporation Equipment Company, Buchanan, of Michigan My present invention relates generally to pumps, and, more specifically, is directed to pumps in which the volume of uid discharged thereby may be varied.

It is an object of my present invention to provide a pump wherein the volume of the uid discharged thereby may be varied selectively.

It is a further object of my present invention to provide a pump, as described, wherein the volume of iluid to be delivered by the pump may be preselected with-in the capacity of the pump.

It is a further object of my present invention to provide a pump wherein the minimum volume of uid discharged thereby will be sufcient to maintain the pump elements properly lubricated, and prevent any considerable ow from pressure lines connected to the discharge port back to the intake port through the pump elements.

In the accomplishment of the above objects, I contemplate the provision of a pump having a housing in which is slidably mounted a casing. A chamber is `formed in the casing, and disposed therein is a rotor which is adapted to be rotated. Suitable intake and discharge ports are formed in the housing and communicate with the charnber. In addition, uid passageway means are formed in the casing which have communication with the `intake and discharge ports. A slidable valve is mounted in the casing and has passageway means formed therein. The valve and passageway means are so arranged that through movement of the valve the discharge port may be placed in communication with the interior of the housing at one or the other of the ends of the casing while the intake port is placed in communication with the interior of the housing at the opposite end of the casing. As a result, the casing may be shifted relative to the housing and rotor thus permitting the eccentricity of the casing relative to the rotor to be varied. The volume of iluid delivered by the pump is dependent on the degree of eccentricity of the casing and thus by varying the latter, the volume of iluid delivered by the pump may be varied.

It is another object of my present inventionto. counterbalance the eccentricity adjusting means so that changes in volume of iuid pumped can be readily and smoothly accomplished at all times irrespective of the pressure of the uid being delivered by the pump.

It is another object of my present invention ,to provide a pump of the character noted whereina safety valve assembly is embodied for automatically returning the .casing toward zero eccentricity, at which point n considerable volume of uid will be discharged by the pump, when the pressure of the iluid at the discharge port exceeds a predetermined value.

ln the accomplishment of the last noted object, the safety valve assembly is arranged primarily between the discharge and intake ports and the one end of the valve. Now when the pressure of the iluid at the discharge port exceeds the predetermined value, the discharge port and the one end of the valve are placed in communication. The pressure of the fluid at the one end of the valve is Mice ' 2 compressed and a force is exerted on the valve causing the latter to move to a position wherein the eccentricity of the casing and the volume of iluid deliveredby the pump are reduced until the pressure of the lluid decreases to a safe value.

Another object of my present invention-iste provide an articulated valve so as to prevent deection thereof that would cause binding during movement ofthe valve.

Now, in order to acquaint those skilled in the art with the manner of constructingv and using pumps in accordance with the principles of my present invention, I shall describe in connection with the accompanying drawings, a preferredembodiment of my invention. f

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional View of the pum-pof my present invention taken transversely of the drive shaft theerof with the pump elements arranged for :pumping maximum volume;

Figure 2 is a substantially the pump of Figure l taken along the axis of shaft;

Figure 3 is a vertical sectional view of the safety valve ofthe pump of Figure l;

Figure 4 is a partial sectional View of the pump of Figure 1 taken transversely of the drive shaft andshows the pump elements arranged for pumping an intermediate volume of iluid While the adjusting valve is positioned to cause the pump elements to move to decrease thelvolume of iluid delivered; and

Figure 5 is a partial sectional view of the pump of Figure 1 taken transversely of the drive shaft and shows the pump elements arranged for pumping minimum volurne while the adjusting valve is positioned to cause the pump elements to move to increase they volume of lluid delivered.

Referring now to the drawings, there is shown a pump housing 1-0 comprising an intermediate portion. 11 .and end plates 12 and 13 suitably located and secured. thereto by the dowels `79. Disposed within Ythe pump yhousing 10 is a generally rectangular movable vane casing 14 which is guided on one side bythe two guide surfaces 64, which dene a fluid chamber 63, and on the opposide side by the support surface 66. TheV casing 14 is normally biased to the position shown in Figure .1 by springs 9. A cylindrical chamber 15 is formed in the casing 14, and mounted for rotation therein isa rotor 16 having a plurality of circumferentially, spaced radially extendingy grooves 17 in which are slidably mounted vanes 18. The rotor 16. is provided with axially extending tubular portions 19 and 20 which areA journaled, respectively, in rollers or needle bearing assembliesf21 and 22 secured within the end plates 12 and 13 of the pump housing 10. The. rotor 16 is adapted to berotated through the splines 8i) by any suitable prime mover means for effecting rotation of the vanes 18 within the chamber 15. Suitable intake and discharge ports 23 and 24 and vane control ports 56 and 56 are formed in the pump housing 10 at each side of the vrotor 16 and ycommunicate with the chamber 15 at opposite sides thereof as viewed in Figure 1.

A fluid seal 71 is mounted at the outer end of tubular portion 19 of the rotor 16 for preventing lluid from leaking therepast. turned to the intake portv 23 through the fluid passageway 53. A plug 76 is mounted in the outer end of vertical sectional View of the drive a the tubular portion 20 of the rotor 16 for preventing uid from leaking into the drive opening of the rotor-16;

A plug 77 is mounted, by means of a retainer ring 78, in the end plate 13 for preventing iluid' from leaking out of the pump. Theplugs 76 Yand 77 form av llui'd chamber.72.wherefrom1uid leaking from thepump elements Fluid collected at the fluid seal 71 is re-V is returned through fluid passageway 54 to the intake port 23.

A vertically extending opening 25 is formed in the casing 14 at the left side thereof as viewed in Figure l. At the upper end of the casing 14, a uid passageway 26 is formed which communicates at one end with the opening 25 and at the other end with the discharge port 24. At the lower end of the casing 14, a iiuid passageway 2 7 is formed which communicates at one end with the opening 25 and at the other end with the suction port 23. Another iluid passageway 28, which communicates at one end with the opening 25 and at the other end with the lower interior portion of the housing 10, is formed in the casing 14.

, Extending through the opening 25 is a valve member 29 which is mounted for unrestricted sliding movement. The valve 29 has secured to its ends, by means of :flexible joints 59, pistons 58 which lare slidably mounted in the housing 10. The articulated valve construction prevents deflection thereof that would cause binding during movement of the valve 29, and serves to balance the latter against Huid forces during normal pumping but provides for positive endwise connection.

Rectilinear movement of the valve member 29 is adapted to be effected by means of a crank arm 30 mounted on an actuating rod 31 which may be automatically or manually actuated. The valve member 29 is formed with axially spaced enlarged portions 32, 33 and 34. Also formed in the valve member 29 is a longitudinal passageway 35 intersected at its upper end by a port 36, which opens into the upper chamber 67 of the housing 10, and at its lower end by a port 37, which communicates with an annular passageway 65 intermediate of the enlarged valve portions 33 and 34. An annular fluid passageway 62 is defined by the enlarged valve portions 32 .and 33.

Arranged at the upper end of the housing 10 is a safety valve assembly indicated generally by the reference numeral 38. The safety valve assembly 38 is shown in section, in Figure 3, and includes `a horizontal opening 39 formed in the end plate 12. A fluid passageway 40 communicates at one end with the forward end of the opening 39, and at the other end with the intermediate portion of the opening 39. The opening 39 is also placed in communication with the intake and discharge ports 23 and 24 through passageways l41 and 42, respectively. The opening 39 further communicates with the opening 43 at the upper end of the upper piston 58 of the valve member 29 through a passageway 44.

Disposed in the opening 39 are a safety valve member and an actuator piston 57 which has a forward reduced nose portion 46 defining a fluid chamber. The valve member 45 is formed with enlarged portions 47 and 48 which define annular fluid passageways 90 and 91. A longitudinal port 49 is formed in the safety valve member 45 and opens outwardly at the left end thereof as viewed in Figure 3. A port 50 intersects the valve member 45 and communicates with the chamber 91.

A coil spring 51 is disposed in the opening 39 at the left end thereof for normally biasing the safety valve member 45 to the right. The spring 51 is adjusted and maintained in position by means of a nut and screw assembly 52.

As shown in Figure 2, passageways 55 place the intake ports 23 in communication with semi-annular grooves 56 which, in turn, communicate with the grooves 17 in the rotor 16 as they move therepast. Passageways, similar` to 55, place the discharge port 24 in communication with semi-annular grooves 56' which, in turn, communicate with the grooves 17 in the rotor 16 as they move therepast. A horizontal passageway 60, as shown in Figures 1, 4 and 5, places the discharge port 24 in communication with the chamber 63 at one side of the casing 14.

The pressure created by the discharge fluid in chamber 63 forces the casing 14 toward the right and thereby 4 slightly overpowers the pressure of the fluid in the dis charge half of the chamber 15 which urges the casing 14 to the left. This counterbalancing of the sidewise pressures assures free movement of the casing 14 when being adjusted for varying the volume of iluid delivered irrespective of the fluid pressure then existing.

The above described pump of my present invention operates in the following manner: The volume of uid discharged by the pump is controlled through movement of the valve member 29 which controls movement of fthe casing 14 within the housing 10. Now, looking at Figure 5, it will be observed that the casing 14'is in its lowermost position, and that the chamber 15 isJvery nearly concentric with the rotor 16. In this position of the casing 14, no `appreciable volume `of iluid is delivered by the pump. Sufficient volume of fluid does ow, however, to leak past the running clearances of the pump elements to maintain the latter properly lubricated and to prevent any considerable flow from pressure lines connected to the discharge port 24 back to the intake port 23 through the pump elements. With the valve member 29 disposed in the position shown in Figure 5, the chamber 67 above the casing 14 will be placed in communication with the intake port 23 through port 36, passageway 35, port 37 and passageway 27. At the same time, the chamber 68 below the casing 14 will be placed in communication with the discharge port 24 through the passageways 26, 62 and 28. Thus, suction and pressure force the casing l14 to move upward until the openings 26 and 27 are aligned with the enlarged portions 32 and 33 of the valve member 29 whereby communication between the chambers 67 and 68, located above and below the casing 14, and the intake and discharge ports 23 and 24, is interrupted and the fluid in the chambers 67 and 68 is trapped therein. The fluid thus trapped in the chambers 67 and 68 :prevents movement of casing 14 and the eccentricity of the latter will be maintained at such location until the valve 29 is moved to another position. The springs 9 urge the casing 14 upwardly to insure that pumping .action will start.

When it is desired to have the pump deliver uid at maximum capacity, the valve 29 is moved to the position shown in Figure l after which the casing 14 will move upwardly, under the force of uid under pressure in chamber 68 and under suction in chamber 67, to the position shown in Figure l. In this position of the pump elements, fluid is delivered at maximum capacity.

The volume of uid delivered by the pump may be decreased by moving the valve 29 downwardly, for ex'- ample, to the position shown in Figure 4. As the valve 29 is moved downwardly, the chamber 68 at the lower end of the casing 14 will be placed in communication with the intake port 23. Simultaneously, the fluid will be compressed in the chamber 67 above the casing 14. As the aforo-noted fluid is compressed, the casing 14 is forced downwardly thereby until the passageways 26 and 27 are closed by the valve portions 32 and 33. lt is to be understood that the valve 29 may be disposed in any one of an infinite number of positions and that the casing 14 will, in the manner described hereinbefore, assume a corresponding position. As a result, the volume of iluid delivered by the pump may be varied in infinite steps within the capacity of the pump.

When the pressure of the fluid at the discharge port 24 increases beyond a safe limit, the safety valve assembly 38 becomes operative. The elements of the safety valve yassembly 38 are normally in the position shown in Figure 3. In this condition of operation, the upper end chamber 43 of the valve 29 communicates with the intake port 23 through passageway 44, port 49, port 50, and passageways 91 and 41. At the same time the fluid is compressed in the passageway 42, passageway intermediate the valve portions 47 and 48, passageway 4i), and chamber46A at the end of piston 57, The spring 51 is pre-tensionedrso as to.y prevent movement of thefvalve 45 to: the: left; when the pressure of the fluid at the discharge port 24' remains below apredetermined safe value.

Now, should the pressure of the fluid at the discharge port'24 increase beyond a safe value, the valve45 is urged to the left by the uid under pressure acting in chamber 46 against piston 57 to press against the valve 45. Movement of the valve 45 to the left will cause the valve portion 48 to interrupt communicationv between passageway 44 and port 49. At the same time the passageway 44 will be placed in communication with the passageway. 90 around the valve 45. Now, the uid in the passageway 44 will be compressed against the upper end of piston 58 thus forcing the control valve 29 downwardly until the pressure developed at the pump discharge port 24 decreases to a safe value. If' the valve 29 is moved to its lowermost position, the casing 14 will be returned to its lowermost position, as shown in Figure 5, and the pump will deliver no appreciable volume of fluid at the discharge port 24.

For the successful operation of a pump of the nature described, the valve 29 must never be restricted against free movement nor biased for movement by any other force than that exerted by the actuator lever 30 or upon the functioning of the safety valve 38. To assure free movement at all times, the valve 29 is seated at the ends only by means of the pistons 58. The center of the valve 29 is relieved so that exact straightness is not required.

The end pistons 58 are of the same diameter as the enlarged portions 32, 33 and 34 of the valve 29, thus providing for exact balancing of all forces that may be created by the fluid pressure or suction. The outer end ofthe upper piston'58 is in communication with the intake port 23 through the safety valve 38 and the outer end of the lower piston 58 is in communication with the intake port 23 through the passageway 61. This arrangement permits free movement of the valve 29 by action of lever 30 since no fluid can be trapped in the chambers 43 or 69 except upon the functioning of the safety valve 38.

It should be readily appreciated from the foregoing description that I have provided a pump the delivery volume of which may be varied in infinite steps within the capacity of the pump. In addition, I have provided a safety valve mechanism which automatically returns the pump toward zero discharge volume when the pressure of the iiuid at the discharge port exceeds a predetermined value.

Now, while I have shown and described what l believe to be a preferred embodiment of my present invention, it will be understood that various rearrangements and modications may be made therein without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention.
