Filed Nov. 2, 1967, Ser. No. 680,140 Int. Cl. F02b 15/00, 49/00 US. Cl. 123-139 6 Claims ABSTRACT OF THE DISCLOSURE A valve system for the delivery stage of a fuel injection pump for internal combustion engines provided with spring-loaded delivery and check valves, an; opening through which fuel passes to the check valve for effecting opening thereof and a throttle opening in the delivery valve in the fuel flow path from a delivery fuel line to a pump with the check valve being open. The cross section of the throttle opening is smaller than that of the opening through which fuel passes to the check valve.

The present invention relates to internal combustion engines, and more particularly to valve systems for the delivery stage of fuel injection pumps.

Known in the art are valve systems for the delivery stage of fuel injection pumps which incorporate a springloaded pressure valve and a spring-loaded check valve arranged in succession along the path of the fuel to be delivered.

The main disadvantages of the hitherto known valve systems of such type are as follows:

The highly strenuous working conditions of the check valve which takes up the entire back pressure impact of the fuel, whereby dependability and stability of operation of the valve systems become impaired; the relief of the fuel line and the stability .of damping wave oscillations therein depend entirely on the accuracy of making the component parts or devices responsible for the operation of the check valve (such as the spring opening in the valve seat and the like), so that it is difiicult to ensure the identical operation of several valve systems and, hence, uniform delivery of the fuel to the cylinders.

An object of the present invention is to eliminate the above disadvantages and provide a valve system for the delivery stage of a fuel injection pump which is relatively simple in design and which ensures a stable and uniform delivery of the fuel.

According to the present invention, the above object is attained since the delivery value or the seat thereof, in the path of the fuel from the delivery fuel line to the pump, with the check valve being open, is provided with a throttle opening having a cross section smaller than that of an opening through which the fuel passes to the check valve for the latter valve to be opened.

In the preferred embodiment of the present valve system of the delivery stage, it is advisable for the throttle opening to be provided in the delivery valve, and with the opening passing the fuel to the check valve being in the seat thereof. The latter opening should be located ahead of the throttle opening along the path of the fuel flow from the delivery fuel line to the pump.

It is also possible for the throttle opening and the opening passing the fuel to the check valve to be provided sequentially in the delivery valve so that such openings are in communication with the check valve being urged against the delivery valve which functions as its seat.

3,479,999 Patented Nov. 25, 1969 A test model of the present valve system in the delivery stage of a fuel injection pump proved capable of providing dependable operation of the pump under cyclic feed conditions (up to 250 cu. mm. per cycle); high pump capacity with the values of the valve opening being as small as up to 1.5 mm.; complete interchangeability of component parts of the same type; and stable and uniform (within 3 percent) feed of the fuel to the cylinders.

Additional objects and advantages of the invention will become more readily apparent to persons skilled in the art from the following detailed specification and annexed drawings and in which drawings:

FIG. 1 is a view in longitudinal section of an embodiment of the valve system of the delivery stage with openings provided in the delivery valve and in the seat of the check valve;

FIG. 2 is a view in longitudinal section of an embodiment of the valve system of the delivery stage with openings provided in the delivery valve and in the check valve;

FIG. 3 is a view in longitudinal section of an embodiment of the valve system of the delivery stage with openings made sequentially; and

FIG. 4 is a view taken along the line IVIV of FIG. 3 the view looking in the direction of the arrows.

The valve system of the delivery stage, according to the invention, comprises a seat 1 (FIG. 1) for a delivery valve 2 arranged in a bore 3 of a head or body 4 of a pump above an opening 5 serving to pass the fuel delivered by the high-pressure stage to a fuel-injection nozzle (the high-pressure stage and the fuel injection nozzle being not shown in the drawing). The bore 1 is pressed to the bottom of the seat 3 through a gasket 6 by a high-pressure fuel pipe union 7.

An axial passage 8 formed in the seat 1 is a continuation .of the opening 5 in the head and upper end face 9 of the seat 1 is engaged by the delivery valve 2 due to the action of a spring 10 biased between a shoulder in the union 7 and the valve 2 at the moment when the fuel delivery to the fuel-injection nozzle is discontinued. Hence, free transfer of fuel in the opposite direction is prevented.

Bearing against the delivery valve 2 is one end of a cylinder 11 of a check valve 12, and by virtue of a spring 13 located within the cylinder, the valve 12 closes an opening 14 provided in end 15 of the cylinder. The opening 14 serves to transfer the fuel from the delivery fuel line (not shown in the drawing) to the pump after the delivery process effected by the delivery section has been discontinued. The cross-section of the opening 14 determines the moment when the check valve 12 starts to open. In the delivery valve 2 in the path of the reverse flow of the fuel (from the fuel-injection nozzle to the pump), there is provided a throttle opening 16 having a cross-section smaller than that of the opening 41.

The opening 16 serves to reduce the velocity of the reverse flow of the fuel, thus diminishing the pressure impact affecting the check valve 12 and stabilizing the relief of the fuel line (complementing the efiect produced by the check valve 12). At the moment when the feed is started, the fuel passing through opening 5 (FIG. 1) and passage and contacts 8 the delivery valve 2 and, having overcome the resistance of the spring 10, forces the delivery va-lve 2 slightly in an upward direction. Then the fuel fills the space above the valve 2 in the union 7 and passes into a high-pressure fuel line connected to the fuel-injection nozzle.

At the moment when the fuel supply is arrested, the delivery valve 2, under the action of the spring 10, is rapidly forced onto the seat 1, opening check valve 12, and the fuel entering through the opening 14 starts to pass through the throttle opening 16 into the space above the plunger of the pump (not shown in the drawing), until a pre-determined pressure is developed in the space above the valve. The throttle opening 16 damps the stream of fuel, thus contributing to the damping action of the check valve 12 with respect to wave oscillations arising in the fuel line and increasing stability and dependability of its operation.

It will be noted that in the embodiments illustrated in FIGS. 2 and 3 corresponding components bear the same reference numbers as in FIG. 1.

In certain situations it is expedient that a check valve 12a (FIG. 2) provided with a spring 13a be arranged in a passage 8a provided in the seat 1 of the delivery valve 2 which, in turn, serves as a seat for the check valve 12a closing the throttle opening 16.

In some situations it may be advisable for the throttle opening 16 (FIG. 3) and the opening 14, which determines the moment at which the check valve 12a comt 1 mences to open, be formed sequentiallyin the delivery valve 2 and be in communication with each other. The check valve 12a is provided'with a cylindrical portion 18 which serves as a guide for-.the spring 1311 and the upper guideportion of a non-return valve 17 having grooves 19 (FIG. 4) for passing the fuel.
