sum 1 [1F 3 PATENTEDMY 71914 3.809 502 SHEU 3 0F 3 BACKGROUND or THE INVENTION A pressure intensifier may include at least two reciprocable pistons driven by fluid at supply pressure to elevate the pressure of some of the supply fluid to a discharge pressure. To reciprocate the pistons, appropriate valving is provided to control to control the flow of fluid to and from the pistons. The valving is separate from the pistons, but may be mechanically actuated by the pistons as shown for example in [1.3. Pat. No. 2,293,076.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION One improvement provided by the present invention is the incorporation of the valving intothe piston. With this construction, each of the pistons of a pressure intensifier serves as a fluid motor, a pump for increasing fluid pressure, and valve means for controlling fluid flow to and from the piston and hence for controlling piston movement. Incorporating the valve into the piston eliminates the separate valve structure and the control connection therebetween while retaining the valving function. In addition, the size and weight of the total unit is reduced.

The valve is carried by-the piston and is responsive to the position of the associated piston to port fluid to at least one other piston. For example, the valve may take the form of at least one groove and at least one land on the piston, in which event, the piston takes on the characteristics of a valve spool. The valve may be integral with the piston. I

If the pistons are to be powered entirely by fluid pressure and solely by valves integral with the pistons, then the pressure transformer. Each of the the end of each of its strokes.

To facilitate reciprocating'of the pistons, each of the pistons preferably has pressure responsive surface means which includes first and second pressure responsive faces. The valves of a first piston ports fluid at supply pressure to the first pressure responsive face of a second piston and opens the second face of the second pistons dwells at piston to a return port to move the second piston on its return stroke. To move the second piston on it working stroke, the second pressure responsive face is connected to fluid at supply pressure and the first fluid responsive face is open to the output or discharge of the pressure intensifier. The second fluid responsive face has a larger effective area than the first face so that fluid at supply pressure can move the piston on its working stroke to increase the pressure of the fluid acting against the first pressure responsive face. With this arrangement, substantially the same fluid which urged the piston on its return stroke is subsequently increased in pressure by the working stroke of the same piston.

.Another advantage of this invention is that each of the pistons may be identical thereby reducing manufacturing cost.-

The concepts set forth above have been described with reference to a pressure intensifier. However, these concepts are equally applicable to a' pressure reducer.

The invention can best be understood by reference to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying illustrative drawing.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS 7 position.

at least three pistons should be used because two pistons, under these circumstances, may not operate satisfactorily. With the concepts of this invention to provide a constant flow output, the number of pistons employed should be at least three and an odd number or a number which isan even multiple of an odd number greater than one. For example, four pistons will operate satisfactorily except the output will notbe a constant flow.

With the present invention, the pistons are automatically reciprocated in a predetermined sequence. For example, movement of the first piston on the working stroke causes the valve means carried thereby to port fluid to the second piston to cause the second piston to move on its return stroke. Movement of the second piston on its return stroke causes the valve means carried thereby to port fluid to the third piston to move the third piston on its working stroke. Movement of the third piston on its working stroke causes the valve means carried thereby to port fluid to the first piston to cause the first piston to move on its return stroke. This sequence is continuously repeated during operation of FIGS. 2 and 3 are views similar to FIG. 1 with the pistons being in other operative positions.

FIG. 4 is diagram illustrating relative piston position v ducer constructed in accordance with the invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT FIG. 1 shows a pressure transformer in the form of a pressure intensifier'll which includes a body 13 and three identical pistons 15, 15a and 15b. Although the body 13 is shown as an integral unit housing all three of the pistons 15, 15a and 15b, obviously separate housing units could be used for one or more of the pistons, if desired.

The body 13 has an inlet port 17 which is adapted for connection to hydraulic fluid, such as oil, at supply pressure. By way of example, the inlet 17 is illustrated in FIG. 1 as being coupled to a pump 19 capable of providing fluid under pressure, such as 3,000 psi, to the intensifier 11. Of course, other sources of fluid under pressure may be employed. The body 13 has discharge charged through the return port 23, then the sump 25 can be eliminated. t

The body 13 definesa chamber 27 in which the piston 15 is mounted for. reciprocation. The body 13 has annular grooves 29, 31, 33, 35 and 37 all of which open into the chamber 27..The piston 15 cooperates with the chamber 27 to define chamber sections 39 and 41 at sponding portions are designated by corresponding reference numerals followed by the letters a and b, respectively.

The piston 15 has pressure responsive end faces 47 and 49 with the end face 47 having a larger effective area than the end face 49. The piston 15 also includes outer lands 51 and 53 and an intermediate land 55. The

lands 51 and 55 are axially spaced to define an annular and continuously operated to provide a continuous outto define a groove 59..

The pistons 15a and 15b are identical to the piston 15 and corresponding portions are designated by corresponding reference numerals followed by the letters a and b,- respectively.

Passage means provide communication from the ports 17, 21 and 23 to the pistons 15, 15a and 15b. Specifically, a passage 61 provides communication between the chamber section 39 and the annular groove 35b. Similarly, passages 61a and 61b extend between the chamber section 39a and the groove 35 and from the chamber section 39b to the groove 35a, respectively.

A passage 63 provides communication between the chamber section 41 and the groove 31b. Similarly, passages 63a and 63b provide communication between the chamber section 41a and the groove 31 and the chamber section 41b and the groove 31a.

The pistons 15 and 15a are also connected by a discharge passage 21a, an inlet passage 17a, and a return or exhaust passage 23a. Similarly, the pistons 15a and 15b are interconnected by a discharge passage 2112, an inlet passage 17b and a return passage 23b. The body 13 also provides passages 45a and 45b which correspond to the passage 45 discussed above.

The various passages extending between the pistons '15, 15a and 15b may be separate tubes,-or appropriate .grooves, slots, bores, ,etc. in a one-piece body, or may 'be formed in'any other manner known in the art.

I The piston 15 is mounted for reciprocation in the chamber 27. When thepiston 15 is moving to the right as viewed in FIG. 1, it is on its working stroke. During the working stroke, the pressure responsive end face 49 compresses fluid in the chamber section 41 to thedesired discharge pressure. When the piston 15 is moving on its return stroke causes the piston 15b to move on its working stroke. Movement of the pistonlSb past null on its working stroke causes the piston 15 to move put.

More specifically, with the pistons 15, 15a and 15b in the position shown in FIG. 1, fluid at supply pressure from the inlet port 17 passes through the groove 33, the passage 17a, the groove 33a, the passage 17b, the groove 33b, and the groove 59b. As the groove 35b is uncovered by the piston 15b, the fluid at supply pressure also flows through the passage 61 to the chamber section 39 to act on the pressure responsive face 47 of the piston 15. As explained more fully hereinbelow with reference to FIG. 3, ther'e is pressurized fluid in the chamber section 41 acting on the pressure responsive face 49. However, because the effective area of the end face 47 exceeds the effective area of the end face 49, the fluid at supply pressure acting on the face 47 urges the piston 15 to the right on its workingstroke. Thus, the pressure intensifier 11 utilizes fluid at supply pressure fromthe inlet port 17 to drive the piston 15 thereby providing a fluid motor.

A second function of the piston 15 is that as it moves to the right on its working stroke, the fluid in the chamber section 41 is pressurized to discharge pressure. This fluid at discharge pressure is transmitted from the chamber section 41, through the passage 63, the grooves 31b and 29b, the passage 21b, the groove 29a, the passage 21a, and the groove 29 to the discharge port 21. Thus, a second important function of the piston 15 is to provide a pumping action which increases the pressure of the fluid to provide a high pressure fluid output at the discharge port 21.

A third important function of the piston 15 is to provide integral valve means for various purposes including moving the piston 15a on its return stroke. In the position shown in FIG. 1, the piston 15 is at a null or centered position, and the piston 15a is at an extreme right-hand position and is about to begin its return stroke. The piston 15b is at an-extreme lefthand position and is the next piston to move on a working stroke. In the null position of the valve 15, it closes off the chamber sections 39a and 41a from the ports 17, 21 and 23. When the piston 15a moves slightly to the right of the position shown in FIG. 1, the land 55 uncovers the groove 33 to provide communication between the inlet port 17 and the groove 57. This causes fluid at supply pressure to flow through the groove 57, the groove 31 and the passage'63a to the. chamber section 41a where it acts on th pressure responsive end face 49a of the piston 15a. Simultaneously, the land 53 uncovers the groove 37 to open the groove 59 to the return port 23. This in turn provides communication between the chamber section 39a and the return port 23 through the passage 6 1a and the groove 35. As the piston 15 moves to the right of the null position, the land 51 continues to block the chamber section 41a from communication with the discharge port 21a. Thus, fluid at supply pressure acts on the end face 49a, and the end face 47a is open to the return port 23. Accordingly, the piston 15a is moved to the left on its return stroke by this differential fluid pressure notwithstanding the smaller effective area of the end face 49a.

Movement of the piston 15a to the left on its return stroke provides the necessary valving action to cause movement of the piston 15b to the right on its working stroke. In the position shown in FIG.'2, the piston 15 is at the end of its working stroke, the piston 15a is at the end of its return stroke, and the piston b is at a null or centered position during its working stroke. As shown in FIG. 2, movement of the piston 15a on its return stroke provides fluid at supply pressure to the chamber section 3% and opens the chamber section 41b to the return port 23. Specifically, the groove 59a of the piston 15a provides communication between the passage 61b leading from the chamber section 39b and the inlet passage 17a whereby fluid at supply pressure is providedto the chamber section 39b to act on the end face 47b. Similarly, the groove 57a provides communication between the passage 63b leading from-the chamber section 41b and the discharge passage 21a so that the chambersection 41b is connected to the discharge port 21. With this valving operation, the piston 15b is moved to the right on its working stroke in the same manner described hereinabove with reference to the working stroke of the piston 15. Thus, the piston 15b operates as a fluid motor and a pump to deliver hydraulic fluid at discharge pressure to the discharge port 21.

FIG. 3 shows the pressure intensifier 11 with the piston 15 at the end of its return stroke, the piston 150 at a null position during its working stroke, and the piston 15b at the end of its working stroke. The piston 15b similarly operate the pistons 15b and 15, respectively.

FIG. 4 is a diagram showing the sequence of operation of the pistons 15a, 15b and 150. The ordinate repcarries valve means which operate to move the piston 15 on its return stroke during the working stroke of the piston 15b. Specifically, as the piston 15b moves to the right of the null position shown in FIG. 2, the groove 59b provides communication between the return passage 23b and the passage 61 leading to the chamber section 39. Thus, the pressure responsive face 47 is open to the return port 23. Simultaneously, the groove 57b provides communication between the inlet passage 17b and the passage 63 leading to the chamber section 41. Thus, fluid at supply pressure acts on the pressure responsive face 49. This moves the piston 15 on its return stroke. I

As the piston 15 moves on its return stroke, it provides valving action to move the piston 15a on its working stroke. Specifically, the groove 59 allows fluid at supply pressure to flow from the inlet port 17 through the passage 61a to the chamber section 39a. Simultaneously, the groove 57 provides communication between the passage 63a which leads from the chamber section 41a to the discharge port 21.

From the foregoing, it should be apparent that each piston, as it moves on its working stroke, provides the necessary valving action to cause one of the other pistons to move on its return stroke. In addition, as each piston moves on its working stroke, it provides the necessary valving action to close off the piston which has just completed its working stroke from the discharge port 21. Each of the pistons as it moves on its return stroke provides the necessary valving action to cause one of the other pistons to move on its working stroke.

In summary, the valve means carried by the piston 15 selectively provides communication between the ports 17, 21 and 23 and the pressure responsive faces 47a and 49a. Specifically, with the piston 15 to the right of its null position, communication is provided between the ports 17 and 23 and the pressure responsive faces 49a and 47a, respectively. With the piston 15 to the left of its null position, it provides communication between the ports 17 and 21 and the pressure responsive faces 47a, and 49a, respectively. The pistons 15a and 15b resents the-position of the pistons with respect to null and the abscissa represents time.

The lines designated 15, 15a and 15b represent the movement of the pistons 15, 15a and 15b, respectively. The slope of each of these lines represents the direction and rate of movement of the associated piston. Specifi-' cally, a positive slope represents the working stroke and a negative slope represents the return stroke. A zero slope represents dwell.

FIG. 4 also illustrates which of the pistons is providing a work output during each time interval with the designations 15, 15a and 15b along the abscissa. Generally, each of the pistons provides a work output for substantially the full working stroke thereof as shown in FIG. 4.

As each of FIGS. 1-3 represents the relative positions of the pistons at one point in time, each of these points can be located with reference to FIG. 4. Accordingly, the vertical lines designated FIG. 1, FIG. 2, and FIG. 3, respectively, in FIG. 4 correlate FIGS. 1-4.

' FIG. 5 shows a pressure transformer in the form of a pressure reducer 11'. The pressure reducer 11 is identical to the pressure intensifier 11 (FIGS. 1-3) in all respects not specifically shown or describedherein. Portions of the pressure reducer 11 corresponding to portions of the pressure intensifier 11 are designated by corresponding primed reference characters.

Functionally, the pressure reducer 11' differs from the pressure intensifier 1 l in that it reduces, rather than increase, the pressure of the fluid supplied to it. The pistons reduce the pressure of the fluid supplied thereto on the working stroke. Secondly, the pistons 15, 15a

1 and 15b move on their working stroke as they move to sure intensifier 11 are placed in communication with the return port 23 by passages 45,- 45a, and 45b, respectively. With the pressure reducer 11', it is still necessary to provide a fluid flow path between the chamber sections 43', 43a, and 43b and the return port. However, because the discharge and return ports have been reversed, it is necessary to eliminate the passages 45, 45a and 45b and substitute therefor a passage which extends from the chamber section 43' to the chamber section 43a to the chamber section 43b and from there to the groove 29b. The groove 29b is always in communication with the return port 21 Thus, by this simple change, the chamber sections 43, 43a, and 43b are placed in communication with the report port for all positions of the pistons 15', 15a and 15b.

In the position shown in FIG. 5, the piston 15' is at its null position and is moving to the right on its return stroke. The piston 15a is at an extreme righthand position and is about to begin its working stroke, and the piston b is at the extreme lefthand position and is the next piston to move on a return stroke. v The chamber section 39 is in communication via the passage 61' with fluid at supply pressure from the inlet port 17. The chambersection 41' is in communication via the passage 63' with the return port 21'. Accordingly, the greater fluid pressure on the face 47' forces the piston 15' to the right on its return stroke.

As the piston 15' moves to the right of its null position, the land 55 uncovers the groove 33' to port fluid through the passage 63a to the chamber section 41a. Thus, fluid at relatively high supply pressure acts on the pressure responsive face 49a". Simultaneously, the land 53'vuncovers the groove 37 to thereby provide communication between the chamber section 39a and the discharge port 23!. Although the pressure responsive face 47a is of greater effective area than the face 49a, the discharge port 23 is coupled to a load having a pressure less than 'the pressure of the fluid supplied to the reducer 11 through the inlet 17'. Accordingly, by maintaining an appropriate relationship between the relative effective areas of the faces 47a and 49a and piston 15b to move the right which in turn causes the piston 15' to move to the left. Thus, the pistons 15', 15a and 15b move in the same manner as described hereinabove with reference to the pressure intensifier 11.

When the piston 15 is to the left of its null position, fluid at supply pressure is ported from the inlet port 17 to the chamber section 39a, and the chamber section 41a is open to the'return port 21'. Thus, the piston 15a is moved to, or held in, the right-hand position.

Thus, the location of the piston 15' with respect to null controls the direction of movement of the piston 15a.

The operation of the pressure reduceer 11, except to the extent noted above, is identical to the operation of the pressure intensifier l1.

' Although exemplary embodiments of the invention have been shown and described, many changes, modifications and substitutions may be made by one having ordinary skill in the art without necessarily departing from the spirit and scope of this invention.
