  • Publication number: 20120056113
    Abstract: A variable displacement compressor control valve is provided, which can reduce a time required until a discharge capacity becomes large at a time of actuation of a compressor without reducing an operation efficiency of the compressor. An in-valve release passage for releasing a crank chamber pressure Pc to a suction chamber of the compressor through a Ps inlet/outlet port is provided, a sub valve element which opens and closes the in-valve release passage is provided, and under a situation in which a valve port is closed by a main valve element, two forces that are a force corresponding to a suction pressure Ps (contraction force of a bellows device) and a force corresponding to a differential pressure of the crank chamber pressure Pc and the suction pressure Ps act on the sub valve element in a direction to open the in-valve release passage.

  • Publication number: 20120020814
    Abstract: There is provided a control valve for a variable displacement compressor capable of directly connecting a plunger to a valve rod in a relatively easy way, and realizing an improvement in assemblability, reduction in costs, and the like. A connecting cylinder for directly connecting the plunger to the valve rod is provided. The valve rod is provided with a mushroom-like or flange-like part. The connecting cylinder is provided with an elastic locking piece which, by pushing the mushroom-like or flange-like part into the elastic locking piece, is pushed and opened outward in a radial direction so as for the mushroom-like or flange-like part to pass through the elastic locking piece, and which, after the passing of the mushroom-like or flange-like part, is restored to an original shape due to elasticity which the elastic locking piece has, and locks the mushroom-like or flange-like part.
