20100319793SUCTION JET PUMP - Suction jet pumps are already known with a driving line which leads via a jet outlet into a suction chamber, where the suction chamber has a suction opening which interacts with a valve element and through which fluid can be sucked into the suction chamber. The valve element together with the suction opening forms a suction valve. The suction jet pump is driven by a driving stream flowing via the driving line. The suction jet pump is arranged in a storage tank and sucks fuel out of a fuel tank into the storage tank. At low levels in the fuel tank, air may sometimes be sucked up and conducted into the storage tank, as a result of which foaming occurs in the storage tank. However, the large volume of the foam causes fuel to be displaced, which may result in partial emptying of the storage tank. This effect is also referred to as dynamic leakage. A characteristic curve of the suction jet pump that represents the suction power as a function of the driving stream has a comparatively steep gradient. Severe foaming occurs only above a critical suction power of the suction jet pump, referred to below as the foam limit. In the case of the suction jet pump according to the invention, foaming is avoided or at least reduced. According to the invention, it is provided that the driving line has a bypass opening which leads into the suction chamber and is arranged in such a manner that the bypass stream thereof acts on the valve element.12-23-2010

20120018019DEVICE FOR DELIVERING FUEL - Devices for delivering fuel are already known, comprising a suction jet pump that is arranged in a storage crucible and has a nozzle and a mixer duct provided downstream of the nozzle and arranged perpendicular to the bottom of the storage crucible, wherein at the outlet of the mixer duct an impingement means is arranged, against which the jet of the nozzle impinges in the substantially unfilled mixer duct, and in doing so is at least partially returned into the mixer duct. It has been found that despite the impingement means the propulsive jet tends to eject the liquid column present in the mixer duct. As soon as the liquid level in the storage crucible has decreased below the outlet of the mixer duct, no more fuel can replenish from above into the mixer duct so that the mixer duct may be unfilled after switching off the suction jet pump. Upon restarting the suction jet pump, an unsatisfying high delay until suction of the suction jet pump occurs, because the volume of the propulsive jet must first fill the mixer duct in order to create a vacuum and suction power. Using the device according to the invention, a pushing out of the liquid column of the mixer duct by the propulsive jet of the suction jet pump is avoided. Thus the lead time of the suction jet pump is approximately equal in all operating states. According to the invention, an additional volume (01-26-2012
