Abstract

A valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator includes a valve body adapted to be disposed in the fuel pressure regulator and a passageway extending axially through the valve body. The passageway is tapered through the valve body to reduce fluid flow cavitation by limiting expansion of the fuel.

Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD
  • The present invention relates generally to fuel pressure regulators for vehicles and, more particularly, to a valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator of a vehicle. [0001]
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • It is known to provide a fuel tank in a vehicle to hold fuel to be used by an engine of the vehicle. It is also known to provide a fuel pump inside the fuel tank to pump fuel to the engine and a fuel pressure regulator fluidly connected to the fuel pump to regulate the pressure of the fuel to the engine. In a “mechanical demand” fuel system, the fuel pressure regulator is located in the fuel tank and is part of a fuel pump module. Typically, the fuel pressure regulator includes a valve seat and a valve cooperating with the valve seat to allow fuel to exit the fuel pressure regulator. Recently, it was discovered that fluid flow cavitation in the regulator valve seat creates a fluid noise. This fluid noise, caused by the bypass of engine return fuel through the fuel pressure regulator, had previously been unnoticeable because it was masked by the engine. With the pressure regulator located in the fuel tank, this fluid noise may be audible dependent on fuel system architecture and is therefore a potential source of objectionable noise. [0002]
  • One attempt to overcome or lower the objectionable noise is to use a damper after the fuel pressure regulator to mask the fluid noise. However, the damper adds more weight and cost to the vehicle, both of which are undesired. [0003]
  • Therefore, it is desirable to provide a low noise valve seat in a fuel pressure regulator for a fuel tank in a vehicle. It is also desirable to provide a valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator that reduces fluid flow cavitation. It is further desirable to provide a valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator that reduces audible noise at a relatively low cost. [0004]
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is, therefore, one object of the present invention to provide a valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator of a vehicle. [0005]
  • It is another object of the present invention to provide a valve seat for a fuel pressure regulator that [0006]

  • Referring to FIGS. 1 through 3, the valve seat [0025] 10, according to the present invention, is disposed in the cavity 23 of the base 14. The valve seat 10 includes a valve body 95. The valve body 95 is generally cylindrical in shape with a generally circular cross-sectional shape. The valve body 95 has a base portion 96 extending radially and circumferentially and a side portion 98 extending axially and circumferentially from the base portion 96. The valve seat 10 has an aperture 100 extending axially through the valve body 95. The aperture 100 has a base diameter 102 greater than a side diameter 104. The aperture 100 is tapered through the axial length of the valve body 95 a predetermined angle such as seven degrees from a longitudinal axis of the valve seat 10. The valve seat 10 also has a chamfer 106 on a leading edge of the valve body 95. The chamfer 106 extends axially and radially outward from the base diameter 102 a predetermined angle such as forty-five degrees from the longitudinal axis of the valve seat 10. The chamfer 106 smoothes the transition of the fluid flow as the fluid is bypassed by the fuel pressure regulator 12. The valve seat 10 also has a chamfer 108 on a trailing edge of the valve body 95. The chamfer 108 extends axially and radially outward from the side diameter 104 a predetermined angle such as forty-five degrees from the longitudinal axis of the valve seat 10. The valve seat 10 is made of a rigid material such as metal. It should be appreciated that the taper creates a constantly reducing seat inner diameter. It should also be appreciated that the reducing diameter effectively reduces fluid flow cavitation by limiting the expansion of the fuel.
  • In operation, the fuel pressure regulator [0026] 12 is illustrated in an assembled state in which the valve seat 10 is disposed in the cavity 23 of the base 14. The valve 34 engages the valve seat 10 in the closed position as illustrated in FIG. 1. The valve 34 is contained on the valve seat 10 by the regulator spring 76.
  • Fuel enters the base [0027] 14 of the fuel pressure regulator 12 and flows through apertures (not shown) in the base wall 16 of the base 14 to a cavity 111 in the fuel pressure regulator 12. In the fuel pressure regulator 12, fuel flow into the cavity 111 causes the valve 34 to move away from the base portion 96 of the valve seat 10, allowing fuel to flow through the aperture 100 and out through the passageway 25 of the base 14 and out to the engine.
  • In the open position as illustrated in FIG. 2, fuel in through the fuel pressure regulator [0028] 12, as indicated by the arrows, flows past the chamfer 106 and through the aperture 100 and past the chamfer 108 and out through the passageway 25 of the base 14. It should be appreciated that, in the open or retained position, geometry of the valve seat 10 reduces flow cavitation by limiting expansion of the fuel.
  • Referring to FIG. 4, another embodiment, according to the present invention, of the valve seat [0029] 10 is shown. Like parts of the valve seat 10 have like reference numerals increased by one hundred (100). In this embodiment, the valve seat 110 has the valve body 195 with the base portion 196, side portion 198, aperture 200, base diameter 202, side diameter 204, and chamfer 208 at the trailing edge. The valve seat 110 eliminates the chamfer on the leading edge and has a radius 209 on the leading edge of the valve body 195. The radius 209 is curved axially and radially outward from the base diameter 202 a predetermined amount such as 0.70 inches from a radii thereof. The radius 209 smoothes the transition of the fluid flow as the fluid is bypassed by the fuel pressure regulator 12. The operation of the valve seat 110 is similar to the valve seat 10.
  • The present invention has been described in an illustrative manner. It is to be understood that the terminology, which has been used, is intended to be in the nature of words of description rather than of limitation. [0030]
  • Many modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings. Therefore, within the scope of the appended claims, the present invention may be practiced other than as specifically described. [0031]
