A MATCHLESS DEVICE FOR DIRECTIONAL CONTROL OF FLUIDS AND GASES

[Category : - MECHANICAL ENGINEERING]
[Viewed 147 times]

According to first aspect, a flow control valve comprises outer hollow cylinder and an indexing member. The hollow cylinder comprises a pressure port, a tank port, a first port and a second port on the curved surface. The indexing member comprises an inner cylinder, and is fit to the hollow part of the outer cylinder. When the inner cylinder is at a first relative position with the outer cylinder, the pressure port is connected to the first port and tank outlet is connected to the second port. When the inner cylinder is at a second relative position with the outer cylinder, the pressure port is connected to the second port and tank outlet is connected to first port. According to another aspect, a system for controlling a movement of a piston in an actuator may comprise an indexing valve, an actuator and a pump. The actuator comprises piston and piston rod. The indexing valve comprises outer cylinder and indexed inner cylinder. The pump is used to inject pressurized fluid. In one embodiment, piston is moved in one direction by the pressurized fluid when the indexed inner cylinder is at first index. In another embodiment, the piston is moved in other direction by the pressurized fluid when the indexed inner cylinder is at second index position. This invention can be used in hydraulics and pneumatics. It is a device used to control actuators in hydraulic and pneumatic machinery like earth movers, cranes, robotics etc. Only One of this valve has the potential to replace all valves in an earth moving machines which have been using conventional valves since decades. The working of this valve involves least friction and very easy to operate through a simple computer interface.
I have been granted 3 US Patents among which this is a beauty in itself breaking the existing laws which was being followed since at least 5 decades.
As such, my asking price is USD 450000, though it can be negotiable to some extent.


Financial information

I am looking preferably for an outright sale though a license with royalties is a possibility.
This is a device which is necessarily used in all kinds of earth moving machines, cranes etc to control the flow of fluids and gases.
This device is very versatile as the applications are many eg. power steering in automobiles, hydraulic/pneumatic engines and the number of applications increases with thinking.
