  • Patent number: 6299406
    Abstract: A semi-open staggered vane impeller for use in an automotive fuel pump. Each vane has a cover-side vane tooth and a body-side vane tooth extending from a central vane groove. Each vane is coupled to the next adjacent vane by a rib that runs substantially parallel to the vane groove. In addition, each vane has a phase difference between its cover-side vane tooth and body-side vane tooth that is a function of the length of the vane groove.

  • Patent number: 6210102
    Abstract: A pump (10) has a housing containing an internal pumping chamber (30). A fluid inlet (32) and a fluid outlet (34) are spaced arcuately apart about an axis (12), and an impeller (20) within the housing rotates about the axis to pump fluid from the inlet to the outlet. The impeller has mutually parallel opposite faces (40, 42) circumferentially bounded by a vaned periphery (38). The impeller has a pattern of through-holes (46) extending between its faces and the one face that confronts a wall surface of the housing to which the inlet is proximate has, in association with each through-hole, a groove (44) that adjoins and tails circumferentially away from the respective through-hole in a sense opposite the sense in which the impeller rotates to pump fluid from the inlet to the outlet. The groove inclines and provides a reaction surface against which fluid exerts a lifting force to aid in force-balancing the impeller.

  • Patent number: 5762036
    Abstract: An intake manifold assembly (10) for use with an internal combustion engine. The manifold assembly (10) includes three main components, a cover (12), base (14) and runner beam (16). The cover (12) and base (14) mate to form cavity (18), encompassing a variable plenum (54) upstream of variable runners (52) formed by runner beam (16) and the variable runners (52). The variable plenum (54) of the exemplary embodiment is selectively split into two sections by a divider wall (34) and middle runner blade (48a). Rotation of the runner beam (16) causes a change in the length and/or cross-sectional area of the variable intake runners (52) as well as changing the variable plenum (54), thus varying the tuning of the intake flow into the engine, to optimize engine operation.
