  • Patent number: 6625981
    Abstract: There is disclosed a pneumatic booster having a vacuum chamber connected to an intake pipe of an engine. An air outlet of an ejector is connected to the intake pipe through a vacuum control valve, and an air inlet of the ejector is connected to an air cleaner. A vacuum pick-up port of the ejector is connected to the vacuum chamber of a booster body. The vacuum control valve comprises a control chamber and a control piston, and the negative pressure in the booster is introduced into the control chamber and acts on the control piston. When the negative pressure in the booster is insufficient, the control piston acts to open the control valve and a negative pressure is supplied from the ejector to the vacuum chamber. When the negative pressure in the booster is sufficiently high, the control piston acts to close the control valve and stops the operation of the ejector, thus reducing an effect of the ejector with respect to an air/fuel ratio of the engine.

  • Patent number: 6272858
    Abstract: A master cylinder includes a cylinder, a piston slidably provided in the cylinder, an annular cup seal held on an inner circumferential surface of the cylinder, and a relief port formed in the piston. The piston and the cylinder define a pressure chamber for generating fluid pressure in front of the piston, and the cylinder and an outer circumferential surface of the piston define a fluid supply chamber which communicates with a reservoir. The cup seal is adapted to slide against the outer circumferential surface of the piston to separate the fluid supply chamber from the pressure chamber. The relief port provides communication between the pressure chamber and the fluid supply chamber. A control taper surface is formed on the outer circumferential surface of the piston rearwardly from the relief port. The control taper surface is tapered toward the front of the piston and is capable of abutting against an inner circumferential surface of the cup seal.

  • Patent number: 6269732
    Abstract: A pneumatic booster includes a valve mechanism for introducing atmospheric air into a variable-pressure chamber in accordance with the movement of a plunger, propelling a power piston due to differential pressure generated between the variable-pressure chamber and a constant-pressure chamber and transmitting force by which the power piston is propelled through a valve body to an output shaft. The valve mechanism includes a poppet valve mechanism including a seal surface capable of abutting against an annular atmospheric valve seat formed in the plunger and a seal surface capable of abutting against an annular negative pressure valve seat formed on an inner surface of the valve body. The annular atmospheric valve seat of the plunger is located in a position forward in a direction of propelling of the power piston relative to the negative pressure valve seat and is substantially aligned with the negative pressure valve seat in an axial direction.

  • Patent number: 5887955
    Abstract: A dual function brake fluid control apparatus is presented for performing antiskid operation as well as another control operation involving control of the fluid pressure when the apparatus is not performing an antiskid operation. The apparatus is provided with a pressure relief valve having a valve body and a piston. The relief valve is forced closed by a biasing spring acting on a valve body, and when in the open state relieves the discharge pressure of a pump to the intake side of the pump. The piston closes the relief valve when the fluid pressure from the master cylinder exceeds a specific value. This configuration allows setting the discharge fluid pressure of the pump to apply fluid pressure to the wheel cylinders for non-antiskid control operations higher than that for the antiskid control operation.

  • Patent number: 5884548
    Abstract: A brake booster includes a housing, a partition adapted to divide the interior of the housing into two chambers, and two diaphragms adapted to divide the two chambers into constant and variable pressure chambers. A control valve includes a valve body carried by the diaphragms, and a plunger slidably received in the valve body. The control valve is operatively connected to the variable pressure chambers to develop a pressure differential across the diaphragms to cause the diaphragms to move in response to actuation of an input rod. A reaction disk is disposed between an output rod and the valve body to transmit the reaction of movement of the output rod to the input rod. An adjusting mechanism is disposed between the plunger and the reaction disk and compressible so as to develop a greater degree of pressure differential when a force applied by the input rod exceeds a predetermined level.

  • Patent number: 5743167
    Abstract: A tandem pneumatic booster having a shell body, the inside of which is divided into two, front and rear, chambers by a center shell. Each chamber includes a negative pressure chamber and a working pressure chamber. A valve body is slidably fitted in the shell body and the center shell with seal members therebetween. The valve body is provided with an air passage for communication between the front and rear working pressure chambers. A valve mechanism is actuated in association with an input shaft to introduce atmospheric air into the front and rear working pressure chambers through the air passage so as to apply thrust to front and rear power pistons. The diaphragm of the front power piston has a bead on an inner periphery thereof. The valve body has a groove on an outer periphery thereof. A portion of the air passage which leads to the front working pressure chamber has a main passage portion extending axially in the valve body, and a bypass extending radially outward from the main passage portion.
