  • Patent number: 7234349
    Abstract: A measurement body is provided with a sub-outlet arranged between a U-turn portion of a bypass passage and a main outlet. The sub-outlet includes a first sub-outlet positioned on a path of air, which flows on the inside of the bypass passage, and a second sub-outlet positioned on a path of air, which flows on the outside of the bypass passage. The respective sub-outlets open in a sidewall surface of the measurement body along the thickness-wise direction. However, the first sub-outlet and the second sub-outlet are arranged in different positions with respect to the flow direction of measurement air. With this structure, a substantial length of the bypass passage can be adjusted in accordance with positions of the first sub-outlet and the second sub-outlet, so that compensation of intake pulsation is enhanced in accuracy. Thereby, measurement error caused by influences of intake pulsation can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 7228734
    Abstract: A sensing unit is constructed of a heater element and a temperature sensing element. The sensing unit is arranged in a region, in which measurement air, which flows into the inflow passage through the bypass inlet, bends at the substantially right-angle and contracts in flow. Alternatively, the sensing unit is arranged in a region immediately after an area, in which the measurement air flowing through the bypass inlet bends at the substantially right-angle. The lengthwise directions of the heater element and the temperature sensing element are respectively arranged to be in parallel with both thickness-wise side faces of the measurement body. Thereby, even when a flow rate of measurement air changes, an influence due to the change can be restricted from being exerted. Therefore, the maximum flow rate can be measured within the lengthwise range of the heater element from a low flow rate to a high flow rate.

  • Patent number: 7230636
    Abstract: A gas is generated from a printing plate by exposure of the printing plate. A gas diffusing suction unit jets air from air jet ports to diffuse the gas generated from the printing plate by irradiation of laser light. The gas diffused by the air is sucked along with the air from a gas suction opening of the gas diffusing suction unit. At this time, a gas suction velocity is set to 1.2 or more times an air jet velocity to suck the gas/air efficiently. The gas/air may be sucked efficiently by setting a volume of suction to 30 or more times a volume of air jet.

  • Patent number: 7043978
    Abstract: An airflow meter has a bypass passage disposed in an air passage and a sensing portion disposed in the bypass passage to detect an airflow amount. The bypass passage is provided with a restriction portion to gradually decrease a passage width of the bypass passage in an airflow direction in the bypass passage. The restriction portion includes a first restriction portion and the second restriction portion disposed at an immediately downstream side of a narrowest portion of the first restriction portion. The first restriction portion gradually decreases the passage width in the airflow direction. The second restriction portion increases the passage width than the passage width at the narrowest portion in a stepped manner. The sensing portion is located in a bound in which the restriction portion is disposed.
