|20130276767||SEPARATION DEVICE FOR USE INI A SYSTEM FOR RECIRCULATION OF BLOW-BY GASES OF AN INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE - A separator device for a system for recirculation of blow-by gases of an internal-combustion engine comprises an elongated casing defining a separation chamber with an inlet at one end, for communication with the crankcase, an outlet at the second end, for communication with the intake system of the engine, and an end wall with at least one draining sump for draining the liquid separated in the separation chamber for return of the separated liquid into the crankcase. Associated to said inlet is an open/close element with flexible flap that opens when the crankcase is in overpressure with respect to the separation chamber, whereas associated to each draining sump is a membrane open/close element that, in the aforesaid condition of overpressure, closes, whereas, when the crankcase is in negative pressure, opens, enabling return of the liquid separated and collected inside each draining sump into the crankcase. In order to enable maximum efficiency of separation of the oil contained in the flow of blow-by gases that traverses the separation chamber, said chamber is without diaphragms set transversely with respect to the longitudinal direction of the device, and has one or more inner walls arranged parallel to the longitudinal direction of the device in such a way that the drops of oil contained in the gas flow separate by a phenomenon of adhesion to the aforesaid longitudinal walls. Said walls can, for example, be defined by a single sheet, for example in the form of a mesh folded in bellows fashion.||10-24-2013|
|20130206871||GASEOUS-FUEL-INJECTOR DEVICE FOR INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINES - In a gaseous-fuel-injector device for internal-combustion motor-vehicle engines, the valve body of the injector device has one or more auxiliary openings giving out onto an internal surface of the valve body in which the valve member of the injector device is slidably mounted. Said auxiliary openings are arranged in such a way as to enable the inflow of the gaseous fuel coming from the supply, not only into the inlet opening of the injector device, but also into the internal area of the valve body in which the valve member is slidably mounted, so as to obtain an effect of ventilation and flushing, by means of the flow of gaseous fuel, in an area where there tend to form deposits of the oily substances contained in the gaseous fuel.||08-15-2013|
|20130167507||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR REGENERATING THE PARTICULATE FILTER IN A DIESEL ENGINE - In a diesel engine equipped with a system for automatic regeneration of a particulate filter, an automatic regeneration mode is inhibited in the case where there is recorded a number higher than a pre-set threshold of unfavorable event. When the automatic regeneration mode is inhibited, an on-demand regeneration mode is simultaneously enabled, which can be activated manually by the driver. If an on-demand regeneration is not performed before the vehicle has covered a certain mileage since the automatic regeneration mode was inhibited, the vehicle is set in a condition of limited performance.||07-04-2013|
|20130133458||DEVICE FOR LOCKING A MOTOR-VEHICLE GEAR CHANGE IN A PARKING POSITON - A device for controlling a device for locking a motor-vehicle gear change in a parking condition includes a transmission which connects the gear change lever to a driven member movable between an operative position and an inoperative position, respectively for engagement and disengagement of the locking, device. The transmission is connected to the driven member through a rotatable drum with a cylindrical surface having a cam-track cooperating with, a cam-following element, The cam-track is designed so as to cause engagement of the locking device when the transmission is subjected to a pulling action or to a pushing action, depending upon the requirements.||05-30-2013|

|20120291726||CYLINDER BLOCK FOR A LIQUID-COOLED INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE - A cylinder block for an internal-combustion engine includes a first cavity and a second cavity adapted to contain a cooling liquid extend around respective portions of the cylinder. The first cavity of each cylinder communicates hydraulically with the first cavity of at least one adjacent cylinder to define a first cooling jacket. The second cavity of each cylinder communicates hydraulically with the second cavity of at least one adjacent cylinder to define a second cooling jacket. The first and the second cooling jackets each are in fluid communication with a second supply channel. Each of the supply channels is in fluid communication with a supply source with a direction of flow such that the cooling liquid goes towards the first and second cooling jackets, coming out through the top face.||11-22-2012|
|20120227687||Cylinder Head for an Internal Combustion Engine, with Integrated Exhaust Manifold and Subgroups of Exhaust Conduits Merging into Manifold Portions which are Superimposed and Spaced Apart From Each Other - A cylinder head for an internal combustion engine has a body integrating, in a single cast piece, or exhaust manifold and including a lower cooling jacket and an upper cooling jacket. The lower cooling jacket is longitudinally divided into a plurality of separate transverse chambers associated to various engine cylinders, while the upper cooling jacket has a portion extending longitudinally over the entire development of the head and communicating with separate transverse chambers located on the intake side of the head. The exhaust conduits integrated in the head form separate subgroups of exhaust conduits merging into manifold portions superimposed and spaced apart from each other. The lower cooling jacket has a portion thereof which extends in the area of the body of the head which separates the superimposed portions of the abovementioned subgroups of exhaust conduits.||09-13-2012|
|20120227686||CYLINDER HEAD FOR AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE, WITH INTEGRATED EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND SUBGROUPS OF EXHAUST CONDUITS MERGING INTO MANIFOLD PORTIONS WHICH ARE SUPERIMPOSED AND SPACED APART FROM EACH OTHER - A cylinder head for an internal combustion engine has a body integrating in a single cast piece, the exhaust manifold. The exhaust conduits form separate subgroups merging into manifold portions superimposed and spaced apart from each other. A lower cooling jacket, an upper cooling jacket and an intermediate cooling jacket are formed in the head. The lower cooling jacket is longitudinally divided into a plurality of separate transverse chambers, while the upper cooling jacket has a portion extended longitudinally over the entire development of the head. The lower cooling jacket has a portion extending in the area of the body which separates the superimposed portions of the subgroups of exhaust conduits. The intermediate jacket forms a main outlet at an end of the head. The upper jacket has a first portion at the center of the head and a second portion forming an auxiliary circuit adjacent to said main outlet.||09-13-2012|
|20120073529||TRANSMISSION DEVICE BETWEEN TWO CAMSHAFATS OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE - An internal combustion engine includes a driving shaft, a pair of camshafts for driving engine valves, a transmission connecting the driving shaft to a first of said camshafts and a transmission connecting the first camshaft to the second camshaft. The transmission connecting the two camshafts to each other includes a pair of articulated parallelogram mechanisms each having two crank members rotatable with end portions of the camshafts and connected to each by means of a connecting rod. The crank members are made up of circular discs eccentrically mounted on the camshafts and rotatably received in circular openings formed at the ends of the respective connecting rod. The two crank members rotatable with the same camshaft are spaced from each other by a determined angle.||03-29-2012|
