  • Patent number: 5606856
    Abstract: To reduce NO.sub.x components in the exhaust gas from a compression-ignition internal combustion engine with the aid of a reducing catalytic converter, a metering device for the supply of reducing agent to be additionally introduced into the exhaust gas, in the form of fuel, is provided to improve the performance of the catalytic converter. For this purpose, use is made of a positive displacement pump designed to meter very small quantities with a helix in the form of a helical groove arranged on a cylindrical body of revolution, the delivery rate being varied by driving the body of revolution at a variable rotational speed.

  • Patent number: 5577473
    Abstract: A valve for the introduction of fuel or a fuel/air mixture in a combustion space of an internal combustion space of an internal combustion engine which works with charge stratification in the combustion space, and with spark ignition of the introduced fuel or fuel/air mixture by a spark plug. To ensure the ignition of the fuel/air mixture contained in the combustion space, there is branched off from an umbrella-like injection jet formed by the fuel or fuel/air mixture an ignition jet which, deviating from the umbrella-like or cone like configuration of the injection jet, comes into the region of the spark plug, in order thus to provide a fuel-rich fuel/air mixture in the region of a flashing over of the ignition spark of the spark plug. This takes place by means of a guide face of the valve, in which the guide face is interrupted by a recess.

  • Patent number: 5343834
    Abstract: A device for adjusting a rotational angle relationship between a camshaft and its drive element, comprising two circular segment shells provided on the drive element together with an interposed part forming two working spaces therebetween. The both shells are connected to one of the camshaft and the drive element, and the interposed part being connected to the other of the cam shaft and the drive element while the circular segment shells being movable relative to the interposed part in a setting action such that during adjustment in the setting direction the circular segment shells are adjusted so that the volume enclosed in a first one of the working spaces increases while the volume enclosed in a second one of the working spaces decreases. Each of said working spaces are connected to a first setting pressure medium source separately via a non-return valve which opens toward a respective one of the working spaces, and the working spaces can be directly connected to one another by means of a control valve.

  • Patent number: 5263441
    Abstract: A hydraulic valve control apparatus in an embodiment for multi-cylinder internal combustion engine having a reservoir chamber, assigned to a pressure chamber of a valve tappet and having a reservoir piston that serves as a valve, with which the reservoir chamber can be separated from the pressure chamber. The reservoir piston is shifted out of its position of repose to a reservoir function by a hydraulic thrust that is conducted in the reservoir chamber under the control of a magnet valve, via a control line in which a check valve is disposed. Displacement of the reservoir piston occurs only whenever a valve actuation takes place via the drive cam and as a result the working pressure adequate for the displacement of the reservoir piston prevails in the pressure chamber.

  • Patent number: 5213084
    Abstract: A fuel injection system, for internal combustion engines in which fuel is brought to high injection pressure and distributed via magnet valves to the various fuel injection locations with the aid of a simple, unregulated high-pressure injection pump; high-pressure injection does not take place until a fuel injection quantity control valve, connected to the distribution of the high-pressure side, has closed a relief line. It thus becomes possible to vary the injection time to the maximum possible extent, without entailing major structural expense.

  • Patent number: 5165369
    Abstract: A hydraulic engine valve control having a reservoir chamber, which is assigned to a pressure chamber of a valve tappet and has a reservoir piston, which at the same time serves as a valve by which the reservoir chamber can be disconnected from the pressure chamber. The reservoir piston is displaceable out of its position of repose into its reservoir function by a hydraulic control device that cooperates with a magnet valve. In this process, it is also attained that a plurality of valve control units of one internal combustion engine can be controlled via a single magnet valve, if their various control times do not overlap.

  • Patent number: 5102053
    Abstract: A device for a combined blowout of fuel and air for fuel injection systems in internal combustion engines having a housing with fuel and air connections and a hollow, elongated housing neck having a blowout opening on an end that communicates with the fuel and air connection. Disposed on an end of the housing neck is an electromagnetically actuated valve element, which is pressed onto a valve seat by a valve closing spring. To make the device more efficient for fuel preparation, the valve seat is disposed on a coaxial inner tube that penetrates the housing neck and which extends into the blowout opening. The outer diameter of the inner tube is smaller than the inside diameter of the housing neck. The interior of the inner tube communicates with the fuel connection and the annular chamber enclosed by the inner tube and the housing neck communicates with the air connection.

  • Patent number: 5056477
    Abstract: An apparatus for adjusting an angular rotational relationship of a camshaft, serving in particular to actuate gas exchange valves of an internal combustion engine, with respect to its drive element, which apparatus has two control motors acting counter to one another, the mutually corresponding movable walls of which are coupled to one another, wherein to reduce an expense for furnishing control fluid and generating pressure in this control fluid the work chambers of the control motors are on the one hand both connected via a respective check valve, to a control fluid pressure source and on the other hand can be made to communicate selectively with one another directly via a control valve or can be disconnected from one another via this valve, so that torque fluctuations of the camshaft are exploited for generating pressure in one of the work chambers at a time and the resultant pressure is exploited purposefully at certain times for adjustment with subsequent relocking of the work chambers.
