    Abstract: An assembly to retro-fit a valve head of a compressor that may include a valve head including an exhaust orifice, a concentric two-way valve carried by the valve head, and a valve clamp having an intake port in a top of the valve clamp; the valve clamp being removably coupled to the valve head. The valve clamp may include an annular first wall that defines an intake chamber in fluid connection with the intake port and an annular second wall outside the first wall. The space between the first and second walls may define an exhaust chamber in fluid connection with the exhaust orifice of the valve head. The valve clamp may also include a plunger housing to engage and displace a spring-loaded plunger. The plunger housing may be supported on the valve clamp with a plurality of support arms.

  • Publication number: 20140271291
    Abstract: An air pump has a main frame, a first pressure cylinder, a second pressure cylinder, an outlet device, a footboard, and a pressure relief device. The outlet device is connected to and communicates with the pressure cylinders. The footboard is pivotally connected to the main frame, is securely connected to the pressure cylinders, and has two side panels and a limiting board. The pressure relief device is mounted on the outlet device near the first pressure cylinder and has a base, a ball, an adjusting rod, and an anti-slip-off element. The base is securely mounted on the side face of the outlet device that faces the limiting board, and has a leaking channel. A length of the adjusting rod that extends into the leaking channel of the base is longer than a distance that is defined between the limiting board and the anti-slip-off element.

  • Publication number: 20130343937
    Abstract: An oil pressure relief valve for use in the oil pump lubrication system of an internal combustion engine is controlled by both oil pump outlet pressure and by pilot pressure from a pilot valve which is selectively applied by a control member, preferably a two-way valve that is operated by the engine control module. The pilot valve selectively supplies one of the oil pump outlet pressure or the engine gallery pressure to the control member which selectively supplies pilot valve pressure to the oil pump pressure relief valve which has a single piston. The pilot valve includes first and second pistons for selectively controlling back pressure from the pressure relief valve and for managing changes in oil pressure due to changes in the engine gallery to maintain a virtually constant pressure even as oil pump speed increases when the control member connects the pilot valve to the pressure relief valve resulting in a fuel economy benefit and improved control of the oil pump pressure.

  • Patent number: 5863185
    Abstract: Apparatus comprising a flow carrier connectable in a liquid flow system including an electric motor-pump unit and a conduit for conveying a pumped liquid to a liquid utilization apparatus. The flow carrier is connectable in the conduit and includes an opening which exposes the liquid flowing through the carrier. A heat sink or cold plate is located on the carrier over the opening, the heat sink covering the opening and having a wet side exposed to the liquid. The heat sink further includes a dry side, and heat generating electrical control components are secured to the dry side. A sensor is also mounted on the heat sink and responds to a characteristic, such as the pressure, of the liquid. A heat insulating layer extends around the control components and the sensor and covers the dry side of the heat sink, the layer preventing condensation. The sensor and the control components are operable to control the motor-pump unit.

  • Patent number: 5844490
    Abstract: A monitoring device for a chemical reagent supply system includes a position voltage generator, mounted to a pump of the supply system, to monitor the expansion state of a bellows. The actual outflow of the chemical reagent is calculated by the position voltage generator. According to a demand signal from equipment needing the chemical reagent, which is processed to consider the viscosity of the chemical reagent, a theoretic demand outflow is calculated by the monitoring device. When the difference between the actual outflow and the theoretic demand outflow exceeds a permissible tolerance, the monitoring device raises an alarm signal to warn an operator and thereby to assure the accuracy of the chemical reagent supply system.

  • Patent number: 4143998
    Abstract: A fluid pump having a chamber, a diaphragm cooperating with the chamber and actuated by a solenoid, and inlet and outlet check valves communicating with the chamber. Another valve communicating with the chamber and interposed in the flow path of fluid through the pump between the check valves prevents the flow of fluid from the chamber to the exterior of the pump when the diaphragm is not operating while permitting fluid to be admitted to the chamber on an intake stroke of the diaphragm and to be displaced from the chamber on a discharge stroke of the diaphragm when the diaphragm is operating. An adjustable stop permits the length of the intake and discharge strokes of the diaphragm to be adjusted so that the volume of fluid displaced from the pump per each cycle of the diaphragm may be varied and adjusted within predetermined limits.
