A gerotor type of pump or motor is well-known. Existing units have had a resistance to starting when used as a motor. This has resulted from a radial imbalance of forces on the outer gear element when fluid pressure is applied to the motor with the result that the outer gear element tends to bind against the adjacent wall of the case. Additionally, such devices when used as a pump have been noisy in operation and have had torque variations with these conditions resulting from the trapped condition of fluid in the cross-over areas of the device. The foregoing shortcomings of the prior art devices are overcome by the invention disclosed herein.
SUMMARY An object of this invention is to provide a new and improved hydraulic power translating device which overcomes the shortcomings of the prior art in providing for a smoother, quieter operating device and which when used as a motor has improved starting torque characteristics.
Another object of the invention is to provide a hydraulic power translating device wherein the improvements in the starting torque characteristics of the device when used as a motor are provided by means subjecting the peripheral exterior of the outer gear element to fluid pressure by means of a limited fluid flow giving a controlled pressure drop to obtain radial balance thereof upon initial start-up of the motor.
Another object of the invention is to provide a hydraulic power translating device as defined in the preceding paragraphs wherein the improved sound and operating characteristics are provided by accumulator means of limited capacity positioned at the cross-over areas which communicate with opposite sides of both the inner and outer gear elements of the device as well as any space existing therebetween whereby fluid pressure is applied to the opposite sides of said gear elements for axial balance thereof and the accumulator means provide for utilization of the bulk modulus of the fluid to effectively provide variation in the total space confining the fluid in the cross-over areas.
A further object of the invention is to provide a hydraulic translating device as defined in the preceding paragraph of the gerotor type wherein the radial balancing of the outer gear element and the provision of accumulator means are provided by simple machining operations on the case of the device to provide flow passages from the inlet and outlet ports of the device to the space exteriorly of the outer gear element and to provide relatively small cavities formed in the walls of the case at opposite sides of the inner and outer gear elements for the accumulator means.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING FIG. 1 is an elevational view of the hydraulic power translating device with a part thereof being shown as a section taken generally along the: line ll in FIG. 2;
FIG. 2 is a vertical section, taken generally along the line 2-2 in FIG. 1; and
FIG. 3 is a section, taken generally along the line 3-3 in FIG. 2.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The hydraulic power translating device is shown in particular in FIGS. 1 and 2 wherein a multi-part case has outer parts and .11 mounting a case ring 12 therebetween with a fluid seal between the parts being provided by O-rings l4 and 15. The case ring 12 of the case is aligned with outer case part 1 0 by a series of aligning pins and with there being a series of bolts 21 extending between the outer case parts l0, l1 and through the case ring 12 to hold the case in fluid-tight assembled relation. The outer case parts 10 and 11 each have a bearing 25 and 26, respectively, rotatably mounting a shaft which is a drive shaft when the device is operating as a pump and which is an output shaft when the device is operating as a motor.
Disposed between the outer case parts 10 and 11 and surrounded by the case ring 12 are a pair ofgear elements of the gerotor type. These elements include an inner gear element which is keyed to the shaft30 and is concentric with the axis of rotation of the shaft. The second element is an outer gear element 36 which is rotatably mounted within a chamber defined by opposed faces of the outer case parts 10 and 11 and by an internal wall 37 of the case ring 12. This internal wall is cylindrical, but has its center offset eccentrically from the axis of rotation of the shaft 30 and the inner gear element 35. This is conventional in a gerotor-type hydraulic power translating device. With the six teeth 40 on the inner gear element 35 and the seven internal teeth 41 on the outer gear element 36 there is thus established a plurality of fluid chambers in spaces between the gear elements.
The outer case part 11 has a pair of fluid passages having threaded openings 45 and 46 at the outer ends thereof for pipe connections and at their internal ends are shaped to define a pair of kidney-shaped fluid ports in the face of the outer case part 11 adjacent to one side of the gear elements 35 and 36. One of these fluid ports 50 is shown in FIG. I and in broken'line in FIG. 2. With rotation of the gear elements in a clockwise direction as viewed in FIG. 2, the leading end of the fluid port 50 is at 51, while the terminus thereof is at 52. When the device is operating as a pump, this is a suction port connected to a source of fluid. The second fluid port is shown in broken line in FIG. 2 and, with the direction of rotation of the gear elements as set forth above, has a leading end 56 and a terminus 57. In the pump application, this is the [pressure port. The relation of the gear elements provides for two cross-over areas wherein fluid communication between the fluid ports 50 and 55 is blocked as well as communication between fluid chambers which are then in fluid communication with the respective fluid ports.
In FIG. 2, a tooth 41a of the outer gear element 36 is shown in close relation with the mating tooth space of the inner gear element at one cross-over area. The other cross-over area is defined by engagement of a pair of teeth a and 40b of the inner gear element 35 with teeth 41b and 410 of the outer gear element 36. Again with the rotation of the gear elements in a clockwise direction, there is a gradually increasing space between the gear elements in moving from the cross-over area defined by tooth 41a of the outer gear element to the other cross-over area to draw fluid into the pump and with the fluid chambers beyond the latter crossover area gradually decreasing in size to pump fluid from the device until they reach the cross-over area having tooth 41a.
As is well known, the fluid connections to the device can be reversed to have the fluid port 50 connected to a source of fluid under pressure whereby the device will function as a motor to drive the output shaft 30.
The face of the outer case part 10 is provided with kidney-shaped recesses 60 and 61 shaped similarly to the fluid ports 50 and 55 to balance forces acting on the gear elements because of the fluid ports 50 and 55.
When the hydraulic power translating device is operated as a motor with pressure fluid supplied to port 50, there is a hydrostatic condition existing on start-up wherein the forces applied hydraulically to the gear elements resultingly force the outer gear element 36 generally in the direction of the arrow A, shown in FIG. 2. This tends to bind the outer gear element 36 on startup. Improvements in starting torque are obtained by exerting fluid pressure on the exterior periphery of the gear element 36. The pressure is applied on the exterior of the outer gear element by a restricted fluid flow through a conducting passage surrounding the outer gear element and defined therewith by the adjacent faces of the outer case parts 10, 11 and the wall 37 of the case ring 12. The restricted flow provides a controlled pressure drop to obtain radial balance of the outer gear element 36 by the particular location of the entry and exit points of the fluid flow into the path partially surrounding the outer gear element 36. As shown particularly in FIGS. 1 and 2, the fluid port 50 is the pressure port when the device is operating as a motor and a passage 70 connects the inlet opening with a recess 71 formed in the internal wall 37 of the case ring 12. Controlled limited flow then passes about the exterior of the outer gear element 36 until the flow reaches a recess 72 formed on the internal wall 37 of the case ring 12. The recess 72 communicates with the fluid outlet 46 through a passage 73 in the outer case part 11.
The film of fluid rolls with the outer gear element 36 and moves the latter element away from the case ring 12.
The location of recesses 71 and 72 is approximately coincident with the beginning 51 of fluid port and the terminus 57 of fluid port 55. With the entry of pressure at location 71 there is a force acting in opposition to the lockup force represented by arrow A.
The hydraulic power translating device also has improved structure providing for reduced torque variations or torque ripple with quieter, smoother operation. This structure is in the form of accumulator means of limited capacity defined by a series of recesses formed in the faces of outer case parts 10 and 11. These are arranged to axially balance the inner-and outer gear elements. The accumulator means is in the form of three pairs of recesses with one recess of each pair being formed in the outer case part 10 and the other recess of each pair being formed in the outer case part 11. These pairs of recesses are shown in FIG. 3 with a first pair of recesses being identified at and 81, the second pair at 82 and 83, and the third pair at 84 and 85. with the recesses 80, 82 and 84 being in outer case part 10 and recesses 81, 83, and being in outer case part 1 l.
The pair of recesses 80 and 81 are located in the cross-over area having the tooth 41a of the outer gear element 36 and with the center of the circularlydimensioned recess being centered on the root diameter of the inner gear element 35 whereby fluid within the recesses 80 and 81 act equally upon generally equal areas of the sides of both the inner and outer gear elements.
The second and third pair of recesses are at the other cross-over area. The pair of recesses 82 and 83 are centered on the root diameter of the inner gear element 35, while the third pair of recesses 84 and 85 are centered at the root diameter of the outer gear element 36. The pairs of recesses communicate with the fluid chambers at the cross-over areas wherein trapped fluid is subjected to compression as well as cavitation. The pairs of recesses provide additional fluid-holding areas wherein the bulk modulus of fluid held therein can function to provide an accumulator action to compensate for compression, cavitation, and tolerance and natural frequency variations in the mechanical structure. Additionally, the recesses function as balancing ports to provide axial balance for the inner and outer gear elements 35 and 36.
The capacity of the recess pairs 82-85 must be limited to a fluid-holding capacity since, if too large, the action provided thereby would be too slow (in trying to control the rate of compression) and result in a sloppy system.
The recesses must be of sufficient capacity whereby the total effect of the bulk modulus of the fluid will provide the desired results. By test it has been found that satisfactory operation will occur if recesses 82-85 have a total fluid volume in a range generally 3-20 percent of the volume of a fluid chamber of maximum size, with optimum capacity being preferably in the range of 5-l0 percent.
The pairs of recesses 80-85 are out of communication with the fluid ports 50 and 55 at all times. The series of recesses formed in each of the case parts lie along a line which is radial of the shaft 30 and inner gear element 35 and which is also the line along which the gear elements are eccentrically offset.
