(57) Abstract:

Fuel drainage system is designed for a gas turbine engine. Fuel drainage system gas turbine engine includes a drain tank connected to it via the suction hole line pumping fuel pump and line bypass fuel. Drainage tank with float valve, artery bypass fuel are connected by one end with the outlet of the fuel pump and the other with float valve, made with the placement of the levels of its opening and closing above the level of the intake holes. This embodiment of the system will allow to exclude the ingress of air at the inlet to the fuel pump. 1 Il.

The invention relates to the field of aircraft engine industry.

Known drainage system gas turbine engine containing drain tank connected to the tank and to the fuel system of the engine, the mainline pumping fuel with established therein shutoff valve and ejector, and placed in the tank and connected with shut-off valve, the fuel level sensor [1].

A disadvantage of the known system is its structural complexity and low reliability of electric machines.

Naibolee (CCD), containing drain tank connected to it via the suction hole line pumping fuel pump, highway bypass fuel [2]. After pumping fuel from the drain tank efficiency gear pump is maintained by the circulation of the mixture of fuel with air. However, if the pump is rigidly connected with the rotor of the motor, the duration of pump operation on a mixture of fuel with air can be more than 99% of the resource of the engine, because the pumping of clean fuel does not exceed a few minutes immediately after starting. Long-term work on a mixture of fuel with air leads to premature wear of pump parts and its failure.

The technical problem solved by the invention is to improve the reliability of the fuel drainage system by eliminating the ingress of air at the inlet to the fuel pump.

This problem is solved due to the fact that the fuel drainage system gas turbine engine that includes a drain tank connected to it via the suction hole line pumping fuel pump, highway bypass of fuel, according to the invention, the drainage tank with float valve, artery bypass fuel receiving levels of its opening and closing above the level of the intake holes.

In the inventive design of the drainage tank with float valve, which is made with the placement of the levels of its opening and closing above the level of the intake openings of the drainage tank, and the highway bypass fuel are connected by one end with the outlet of the fuel pump and the other with a float valve that prevents complete pumping fuel from the drain tank by providing a bypass of the fuel within the system and eliminates the ingress of air at the inlet to the fuel pump, thereby reducing wear of the friction surfaces of the parts.

The drawing shows a diagram of the fuel drainage system of the CCD.

The system includes a drainage tank 1 is connected to it through the intake port 2 and the fuel system 3 engine line 4 pumping fuel with established therein fuel gear pump 5, the filter 6 and the check valve 7 and line 8 of the bypass fuel. Highway 8 bypass connected at one end with the outlet of the fuel pump 5, and the second float valve 9. The levels of the opening and closing valve 9 is located above the level of the intake port 2. Drain the tank 1 is connected to the mains drain 10 fuel drained from the cavities of the engine and venting 11. the time.

From drained cavities of motor fuel through line 10 is discharged into the drain tank 1, which leads to the closure of the float valve 9. When the engine is running the fuel through the intake port 2 enters the highway 4 pumping and is pumped by pump 5 through the filter 6 and the opened check valve 7 in the fuel system 3. Since the float valve 9 is closed, the bypass fuel from the output of the pump 5 in the tank 1 is missing.

As pumping of the fuel level in the tank 1 is reduced, and the vacant space is filled with air through line 11 venting. At a certain fuel level float valve 8 opens, starts the bypass fuel line 8 because of the gear pump 5 into the drain tank 1.

This leads to a decrease of pressure between the pump, closing the check valve 7 and the termination of fuel discharge from the fuel system 3.

By continuing the supply of fuel through line 10 into the drain tank 1, the fuel level will rise and float valve 9 closes again. Disabling of bypass fuel will cause an increase of pressure between the pump 5, the opening of the check valve 7 and the allotment received in the tank 1 fuel in the fuel system 3.

If the fuel in Greatski 4 and bypass 8 back into the tank 1.

The filter 6 performs cleaning of the fuel supplied from the fuel system, and a check valve 7 prevents the flow of fuel back out of the fuel system into the drain.

Thus, the proposed fuel drainage system eliminates the ingress of air at the inlet to the fuel pump and thereby reduce wear of the friction surfaces of the parts, improving the working conditions of the pump and increasing the reliability of the system.
