Low Pressure Selector

View page
US Patent:
4045768, Aug 30, 1977
Filed:
Sep 9, 1976
Appl. No.:
5/721818
Inventors:
Boleslaw M. Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Assignee:
The Echlin Manufacturing Company - Branford CT
International Classification:
B60T 1722
US Classification:
340 52C
Abstract:
A low pressure selector for communicating therethrough fluid from the lower pressure source of a pair of pressure sources includes a housing with input ports for connection to the pressure sources and an output port. A piston member is mounted within a cavity, advantageously formed by walls of the housing, for reciprocating movement therein in response to pressure supplied from the pair of pressure sources to the input ports. Sealing members provided on the piston member cooperatively operate with the walls of the housing cavity and the piston member, to effectuate communication of fluid from the lower pressure source to the output port. The low pressure selector is advantageously employed in a vehicle pneumatic brake system to communicate the fluid from the lower pressure source of first and second sources of supply pressure of the system to a low pressure responsive monitor which warns the operator of the vehicle of a drop in supply pressure from either source below a preset minimum.

Brake Apparatus Including Control Valve With Integral Check Valve

View page
US Patent:
4058345, Nov 15, 1977
Filed:
Feb 23, 1976
Appl. No.:
5/660492
Inventors:
Boleslaw M. Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Assignee:
The Echlin Manufacturing Company - Branford CT
International Classification:
B60T 1338
US Classification:
303 6M
Abstract:
A valve for controlling the operation of spring brake chambers in spring brake actuators used in tractor-trailer combinations. The valve is adapted for use with two spring brake actuators and two sources of supply pressure and includes an integral check valve for permitting fluid to flow from either source into the valve but from neither source into the other source. The valve further includes apparatus for alternately providing communication between output port(s) to the spring brake actuators and the check valve or an exhaust port.

Tractor-Trailer Electrical Receptacle

View page
US Patent:
4037907, Jul 26, 1977
Filed:
Feb 23, 1976
Appl. No.:
5/660491
Inventors:
Boleslaw M. Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Victor Mastis - Hinsdale IL
Assignee:
The Echlin Manufacturing Company - Branford CT
International Classification:
H01R 1352
H01R 1360
US Classification:
339126R
Abstract:
A tractor-trailer electrical receptacle is disclosed wherein a housing contains a cavity having a plurality of male contact members mounted therein; the cavity is adapted for receiving a mating electrical plug. A mounting member connected to the housing is adapted for mounting the housing at an angle inclined to the horizontal to promote drainage of any moisture in the cavity away from the contact members. A support member extends forwardly from the housing to provide such support for an electrical plug mated with the receptacle as minimizes the effects of vehicle vibration upon such plug. A cover is connected to said housing and urged by a spring to close the cavity when a plug is not inserted in the receptacle.

Dual Circuit Brake Valve

View page
US Patent:
3934942, Jan 27, 1976
Filed:
Jul 22, 1974
Appl. No.:
5/490893
Inventors:
Boleslaw Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Assignee:
The Berg Manufacturing Company - Des Plaines IL
International Classification:
B60T 1512
US Classification:
303 52
Abstract:
A brake application valve is used to connect supply tanks to the front and rear brakes of a vehicle. The valve has a pair of shuttle members which normally close communication between the inlets and the outlets and open communication between the outlets and exhaust. There are two pistons, movement of which is effective to cause the shuttle members to open communication between the inlets and outlets and close communication to exhaust. One of the pistons (second piston) has inner and outer portions, with the inner portion being provided with a mechanical connection to the first piston such that movement of the first piston can cause movement of the second piston inner portion. The outer portion of the second piston is exposed to pressure at one outlet to cause movement of the second piston in response to air pressure at the first outlet. The opposite side of the second piston, both the inner and outer portions, is exposed to pressure at the second outlet such that the relationship between the exposed areas determines the relationship between the applied pressures at the first and second outlets.

Vehicle Brake System

View page
US Patent:
4147394, Apr 3, 1979
Filed:
Jun 27, 1977
Appl. No.:
5/810116
Inventors:
Boleslaw M. Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Victor Mastis - Hinsdale IL
Assignee:
The Echlin Manufacturing Company - Branford CT
International Classification:
B60T 804
US Classification:
303118
Abstract:
A vehicle pneumatic brake system is disclosed wherein a transfer valve of advantageous design responsive to supply pressure is employed to provide service pressure to an anti-lock, pressure modulating valve for so long as supply pressure is greater than a preset minimum and to provide pressure from a protected reservoir (tank) to the anti-lock, pressure modulating valve when supply pressure is below such minimum value.

Pneumatic Actuator

View page
US Patent:
4221158, Sep 9, 1980
Filed:
Oct 2, 1978
Appl. No.:
5/947583

Boleslaw M. Klimek - Des Plaines IL
Sergio Campanini - Iola KS
Assignee:
Coulter Electronics, Inc. - Hialeah FL
International Classification:
F01B 3100
F15B 13042
US Classification:
91440
Abstract:
A spring brake actuator including an advantgeously formed housing having a longitudinally extending cavity therein for retaining a bolt useful in releasing spring induced brake application, and apparaus for selectively communicating fluid from one side of a spring piston of the actuator to the other side of that piston through the cavity.

Electrical Connector Having Threaded Connection Between Receptacle Parts
