Abstract

The present invention relates to a canister mounted on the side of a vehicle fuel tank. In recent years, the canister (10) has a large capacity in accordance with the strengthening of the related laws, and the space for mounting such a large canister (10) in the engine room is small. As shown in FIG. 1, the vehicle was mounted on the rear panel of the vehicle.
However, as shown in the mounting position is located in the crush zone (Crush Zone) to mitigate the impact of each member is crushed when the vehicle body is collided, so that the damage of the canister (10) during rear impact is easy and the risk of vehicle fire There was also a strong reinforcement had to be installed to protect the canister 10.
Accordingly, the present invention solves the above problem by mounting the canister 10 on the side of the fuel tank 14 mounted in the safety zone having superior rigidity as shown in FIGS. 2 and 3 of the exemplary drawings.

The present invention relates to a canister mounted on the side of a vehicle fuel tank. More specifically, the canister is mounted in a safety zone having superior rigidity in a crush zone, an impact energy absorption zone. It relates to a canister mounted on the side of the vehicle fuel tank to change the mounting position to the side lower end of the fuel tank to prevent damage to the canister due to the rear impact of the vehicle and human injury.

In the past, gasoline evaporated gas generated from fuel systems such as fuel tanks was released into the atmosphere, but since this gas is a hydrocarbon, it may pollute the air. In particular, when fuel is injected into a fuel tank, gasoline gas compressed in the fuel tank may leak out. Since there is a risk of fire when there is fire around it, a device is installed to guide the combustion gas to the combustion chamber without releasing the gas into the atmosphere and to send it to the fuel tank. have.

The fuel evaporation gas emission suppression apparatus is classified into a crankcase storage system and a canister system, and FIG. 1 shows a state in which the canister is mounted.

Conventional canisters were cylindrical to be mounted on the carburetor portion of the vehicle engine room, but in recent years, the capacity of the canister has been increased in accordance with the EVAPO strengthening regulations, and thus the space is too small to mount the canister 10 with increased capacity in the engine room. And it is mounted on the rear of the vehicle, in order to facilitate the mounting is manufactured in the form of a box (cylindrical rather than cylindrical).

The canister 10 is mounted on the bottom of the trunk panel 12 on which the spare tire is mounted, as shown, or not shown, but is a cross member or a side member that is a longitudinal member. It is attached to the bottom of the member.

However, the mounting position of the canister 10 is located in the crash zone (Crash ZOne), but does not have a separate reinforcement for protecting the canister 10, it is easy to damage the canister 10 during the rear impact, There is a risk of initialization materials.

The crush zone is a part that crushes when a car collides and absorbs shock energy according to the deformation to alleviate the shock to passengers.It refers to the front buffer, engine room, rear bumper and trunk of the car. The canister 10 is taken in the rear crash zone as shown, so that the members located in the crash zone at the time of the rear impact are not equipped with a separate reinforcement around, so that the canister 10 is damaged and the sparks are generated due to the masonry. Due to the breakage of the canister 10, there is a high possibility of the initial ignition caused by this can lead to a large accident.

In addition, in order to protect the canister 10, a strong reinforcement is required and accordingly the design and the number of parts had to be increased.

Therefore, the present invention has been devised to solve the above problems, by installing the canister in the safety zone to minimize the damage of the canister during the rear impact and to prevent the initial ignition due to the canister, it is possible to promote the safety of the occupants. It is an object of the present invention to provide a canister mounted on the side of a vehicle fuel tank.

In order to achieve the above object, the present invention forms a seating groove at the side lower end of the fuel tank, and closes the canister to the seating groove, and then fastens it with a support plate to mount the canister in the fuel tank located in the safety zone, thereby providing a rear shock without reinforcement of the star. It is to prevent breakage of the canister from the.

Hereinafter, the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

The present invention, in the canister (10) mounted in the crush zone of the vehicle, forms a seating groove (16) formed with a fastening plate (22) at the lower end of one side of the fuel tank (14), and the support plate (18) bent in two steps Through-holes are formed at both ends of the box-shaped canister 10 to be inserted between the seating groove 16 and the support plate 18, and the side of the fuel tank to be coupled with the bolt 24 and the nut 26. It is a hardened canister.

2 and 3 are views showing the mounting state of the canister according to the present invention, the canister 10 is mounted in the fuel tank 14 and the seating groove 16 formed in the side lower end.

Although not shown, the fuel tank 14 is located at the bottom of the lower panel in which the rear seat of the vehicle is located, and the part is equipped with a plurality of reinforcements as a safety zone for protecting the passenger seat.

The fuel tank 14 is located in the safety zone because the fuel leakage due to breakage of the fuel tank 14 is likely to lead to a large accident such as a vehicle fire during an impact such as a collision. It is attached to the safety zone to prevent breakage.

As described above, the canister 10 is mounted on the side of the fuel tank 14 located in the safety zone because there is a risk that a fire may occur when the gasoline gas is introduced or discharged.

Therefore, in the related art, the canister 10 is mounted in the crush zone so that the shock can not be easily handled by the canister 10 during the rear impact, and a separate strong reinforcement is provided to protect the canister 10. According to the present invention, the fuel tank 14 is located between strong reinforcements to prevent the damage, and according to the present invention, the canister 10 is mounted on the side of the fuel tank 14 so that the damage at the rear impact is possible. Can be minimized, and also no need for a separate reinforcement.

As shown in the drawing, in order to mount the canister 10 to the fuel tank 14, a seating groove 16 is formed such that the upper part and one side of the canister 10 are in close contact with the bottom of one side of the fuel tank 14. Side top of the seating groove 16; That is, the through hole 20 is formed in the contact area between the upper plate and the lower plate for assembling the fuel tank 14, and the fastening plate 22 having the through hole 20 is formed at the lower side of the seating groove 16. Formed.

In addition, the support plate 18 is formed by bending the plate upward so that the lower portion and the other side of the canister 10 are in close contact with each other, and through holes 20 'are formed at both ends of the support plate 18, thereby seating the canister 10. The groove 16 and the support plate 18 are brought into close contact with the lower end of the side of the fuel tank 10, and then the respective through holes 20 and 20 ′ coincide with each other and fastened with the bolt 24 and the nut 26. 10) is mounted to the side of the fuel tank (14) located in the safety zone.

Therefore, according to the present invention, by installing the canister 10 on the side of the fuel tank 14, the damage of the canister 10 is minimized to prevent vehicle fires due to the damage of the canister 10, thereby promoting safety of the passenger vehicle. Ultimately, there is an effect of improving the stability and merchandise of the vehicle.
