  • Patent number: 9903354
    Abstract: An actuator of a compressor includes a partitioning body, which is rotatable integrally with a drive shaft and loosely fitted to the drive shaft in the swash plate chamber, a movable body, which is coupled to a swash plate and movable relative to the partitioning body along the axis of the drive shaft, and a control pressure chamber, the pressure of which moves the movable body. A control mechanism changes the pressure of the control pressure chamber to move the movable body. A link mechanism shifts a top dead center of a first head of a piston over a longer distance than a top dead center of a second head of the piston when the inclination angle of the swash plate changes. The actuator is located at the same side as the first cylinder bore, which accommodates the first head, as viewed from the swash plate.

  • Patent number: 9903352
    Abstract: A swash plate type variable displacement compressor includes a housing in which a suction chamber, a discharge chamber, a swash plate chamber, and a cylinder bore are formed, a drive shaft, a swash plate, an actuator, and a control mechanism that controls the actuator. A pressure regulation chamber is formed in the housing. The actuator includes a control pressure chamber. The control mechanism includes a control passage that connects together the discharge chamber, the pressure regulation chamber, and the control pressure chamber, and a control valve that, by adjusting the degree of opening of the control passage, changes the pressure in the control pressure chamber to allow the movable body to move. Refrigerant in the discharge chamber flows into the control pressure chamber via the pressure regulation chamber. The pressure regulation chamber functions as a muffler that reduces the pulsation of the refrigerant.

  • Patent number: 9816498
    Abstract: A variable displacement swash plate type compressor includes a rotary shaft, a swash plate, and an actuator, which changes the inclination angle of the swash plate. The actuator includes a partition body and a movable body, which moves in a direction along the rotational axis of the rotary shaft. The movable body includes a guide surface, which changes the inclination angle of the swash plate, and a sliding portion, which slides on the rotary shaft or on the partition body. When viewed from a direction that is perpendicular to the direction in which the rotational axis of the rotary shaft extends and perpendicular to a first direction, the guide surface is configured such that a perpendicular line or a normal line to the guide surface intersects with the rotational axis of the rotary shaft in a zone surrounded by the sliding portion.
