Rotary Plug

Stephen Glover (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


A substantially cylindrical rotary plug for enabling
admission of a fluid in a combustion chamber of an
internal-combustion engine, including a least one bent
inner channel through which the fluid flows, with each
channel having an inlet port located on the lateral face
of the plug, an outlet port to he cylindrical surface of
the rotary plug, and a bend for holding back heavier
constituents of the fluid under an effect of a centrifugal force. A thickness of a wall of the rotary plug between
an outer face of the channel and an outside of the rotary plug is relatively thin at the level of the bend. At least
one of the outlet ports of at least one of the channels and
at least one of the bends to the same cross-section of the
rotary plug.
