  • Publication number: 20190301440
    Abstract: A piston compressor includes a housing, a drive shaft, a fixed swash plate, a plurality of pistons, a movable body, and a control valve. The housing includes a cylinder block having a plurality of cylinder bores and a plurality of first communication passages. The movable body has a second communication passage that intermittently communicates with each of the first communication passages by rotation of the drive shaft. A flow rate of refrigerant discharged from a compression chamber into a discharge chamber changes according to a position of the movable body in a direction of an axis of the drive shaft. The control valve is configured to control a control pressure. The first communication passages are connected to the second communication passage by the movable body and disconnected from the second communication passage by the drive shaft.

  • Publication number: 20190301439
    Abstract: A piston compressor includes a housing including a cylinder block having cylinder bores. The housing has a discharge chamber, a swash plate chamber, and an axial hole. The piston compressor includes a drive shaft, a fixed swash plate, a piston, a discharge valve, a rotating body, and a control valve. The rotating body has a second communication passage that communicates with first communication passages intermittently by rotation of the drive shaft. A flow rate of refrigerant gas discharged from the compression chambers into the discharge chamber decreases when a communication angle around the axis becomes large per a rotation of the drive shaft depending on a position of the rotating body in the direction of the axis. The piston compressor includes a suction throttle that decreases the flow rate of refrigerant gas in the compression chamber when the communication angle becomes large based on the control pressure.
