19 Claims. (Cl. 103-53) This invention relates in general to a pump construction, and in particular to a new and useful fuel piston pump, particularly for oil furnaces, having a reciprocating piston with a piston rod of non-magnetic material and an armature connected thereto which is arranged centrally in respect to a magnetic coil which is electrically excited for actuating the pump.

Oscillating armature pumps are known which can be designed with or without valves and which work on the principle of either lifting magnets or rotary magnets. Valveless pump systems with oscillating armature drives are also known for lower outputs where the piston oscillates in a non-magnetizable guide tube and is driven through this tube. A disadvantage of the known construction is their low efiiciency, particularly because of the great gaps in the magnetic circuit, so that a high exciting energy is required for operation.

The disadvantages of the prior art are eliminated in accordance with the invention by a pump construction which includes the pump piston which carries at one end an armature which pgojects into the pump cover and is arranged centrally in respect to a magnetic actuating coil. The piston rod itself is made of a non-magnetic material at least in the range of the armature. With a construction of this type the armature is arranged free on the piston rod so that an economic small-sized pump design may be effected.

A further feature of the construction is that the armature is arranged within the housing carrying the magnetic coil and is limited in its end positions by elastic and damping stops. This results in a noiseless operation of the piston pump.

Another important feature of the invention is that the return spring for the piston and armature is made of a non-magnetic rubber-like material, and due to such a construction a progressive effect is achieved.

Still another important aspect of the invention is that the armature is always surrounded by fuel or the pumping liquid which further results in a damping action. In order to obtain a compact design, the suction valve is advantageously arranged in the pump piston and the fuel is supplied through the hollow piston rod and the hollow pump piston.

In accordance with still another feature of the invention, there is provided a pump having a resilient element or gasket with annular inlet slot on the suction side instead of a suction valve through which the fuel can enter the cylinder chamber. In such an arrangement, the armature is advantageously employed as a valve body which is pressed in the rest position under the pressure of the return spring of the pump against the gasket having the slot. A fuel magnetic valve is thus formed in a simple manner.

Accordingly, it is an object of this invention to provide an improved pump construction in which a pump piston and armature are arranged centrally in respect to a magnetic coil.

A further object of the invention is to provide a pump construction, particularly for fuels, which includes a piston which reciprocates centrally within an armature coil and is at least partially of non-magnetic material and carries at its outer end an armature for actuation of the piston upon excitation of an adjacent magnetic coil.

A further object of the invention is to provide an electromagnetically actuated pump which includes a pump piston of non-magnetic material which is slidable centrally Within an armature coil and which includes resilient elements arranged at each end thereof to limit the stroke of the movable parts and to dampen the movement thereof in the limit ranges.

A further object of the invention is to provide a pump which includes an electromagnetically actuated reciprocable piston having an armature portion which is adapted to be seated at its end position during operation on a valve seat forming member in the inlet of the pump.

A further object of the invention is to provide a pump which is simple in design, rugged in construction and economical to manufacture.

The various features of novelty which characterize the invention are pointed out with particularity in the claims annexed to and forming a part of this specification. For a better understanding of the invention, its operating advantages and specific objects attained by its use, reference should be had to the accompanying drawings and descriptive matter in which there are illustrated and described preferred embodiments of the invention.

In the drawings:

FIG. 1 is a transverse sectional view of a fuel pump constructed in accordance with the invention;

FIG. 2 is a view similar to FIG. 1 of another embodiment of the invention;

FIG; 3 is a view similar to FIG. 1 of still another embodiment of the invention; and

FIG. 4 is a view similar to FIG. 1 of still another embodiment of the invention.

Referring to the drawings in particular, the invention embodied in FIG. 1 comprises a cylindrical housing generally designated 3 which is opened at one end. A magnetic coil 4 is positioned around a central hollow cylindrical formation 3a of the housing. A hollow cylinder forming a pump piston 5 is slidable within the cylindrical formation 3a and in accordance with the invention either the entire piston 5 or piston rod portion 5a thereof is made of non-magnetic material. In the embodiment illustrated, the piston rod portion 5a is made non-magnetic in the range of an attached armature 7 which is made of magnetic material for oscillation under the influence of the coil 4. The piston rod portion 5a includes a threaded extension Sb over which is threaded a nut 8 for securing the armature 7 in position against a shoulder of the piston rod 5a.

In accordance with a further feature of the invention, a return spring 9 of non-magnetic material such as rub her is arranged around the piston rod 5a and bears at one end on a ledge portion 3b of the housing 3, and at its opposite end against the armature 7. The armature 7 is bevelled at 7a in a complementary manner to a double portion 3c of the housing 3.

The piston 5 and the piston rod 5a are provided with a central bore 5c for the flow of fuel therethrough, and a discharge valve or one way valve gene-rally designated 10 is arranged at the upper end thereof as indicated in FIG. 1. The discharge valve 10 includes -a ball member 10a which is biased against a seat 5d of the piston 5 under the urging of a spring 105. The ball member 10a is movable off its seat against the biasing force, of the spring when the pressure of the fluid being pumped is raised by the reciprocating action of piston 5 to a predetermined amount.

A double pressure socket fitting generally designated 1 is threaded into an internally projecting threaded shoulder 3d of the housing 3, with a gasket 26 interposed therebetween. The gasket 20 has a central discharge opening 200 which is aligned with the bore 1a of the fitting which is closed by a pressure valve 2 under the force of a spring 22. On the pressure stroke of the piston 5, the

J pressure valve 2 is lifted of its seat and fuel is discharged through a bore in of the pressure fitting 1.

The suction end of the pump is closed by a suction fitting generally designated 14 having a flange portion 14a which closes the open end of the housing 3 and is held therein by a gasket element or ring 24. An internal ledge portion 14b thereof carries a gasket 26. A gasket 11 is interposed between the armature coil 4 and the flange portion 14a of the inlet fitting 14. This gasket is necessary to prevent the escape of fuel around the cylinder formation 3a and the flange portion 14a.

The entire construction is very compact and the armature 7 is arranged in respect to the coil 4 such that the magnetic flux conditions will be excellent.

In the embodiment of FIG. 2 similar parts are similarly designated, but with primes added thereto. In this embodiment, the housing 3' is designed as a tubular member which is open at each end and accommodate therewith a hollow cylindrical formation 3a having a flange portion 13a forming a top or end cover for the pump.

In the embodiment of FIG. 3, there is provided a housing 3 which is provided with a lateral threaded bore 28 for receiving a suction fitting generally designated 14". In this embodiment, an inlet valve generally 10" is associated directly with the fitting 14 and includes a valve member 10a" which is seated against a valve seat defined in the inlet fitting 14" under the influence of a spring 1921". An adjusting screw 15 is threaded into an end plate or cover 39 which is threaded over the exterior of the housing 3 and bears against a gasket 26 to fix i-ts location for varying the limit position of movement of the armature 7".

In the embodiment of FIG. 4, the housing 3 is of a construction similar to that of the FIG. 2 embodiment, but the piston rod 511" and the piston are made of solid construction. In this embodiment, the armature includes cylindrical side walls 719' which bear against the gasket 26" to seal an inlet opening 32 in the gasket. Thus, the armature forms a tight seal with the gasket 26" and acts in a surprisingly simple manner as a valve body which is pressed by the force of the return spring 9" and by the gradient pressure of the fuel in the discharge line In against the seat of the gasket when the pump is disconnected.

During the operation of the pump, the direction of the fuel fiow is indicated as through the suction fitting 14" by the arrow a and along the dotted line c for discharge through. the discharge fitting 1, as indicated by the arrow 1). It should be noted that the fuel flow is through the opening 32 and around the armature 7" and upwardly into an annular passage 33 and into the pumping chamber 34. The gasket 11 seals the space defining the flow channel 0 in a simple manner from the housing 3', as indicated in FIG. 4.

While specific embodiments of the invention have been shown and described in detail to illustrate the application of the inventive principles, it will be understood that the invention may be embodied otherwise without departing from such principles.

In each embodiment, current is supplied to the armature 4 through an electrical cable connection 40 at the upper portion of the housing 3.
