That Makes Use Of the

Double Acting Uniport Valve

(Patent #5,782,215)

The animation to the left shows a compressor that uses a Patented Double Acting Valve or Uniport Valve. The conventional poppet valve colored blue is actuated by the blue cam. The 'Auxiliary Valve', colored pink, is actuated by a pair of cams.  This eliminates the need for a spring for this particular part. However the other two parts are biased by springs. One spring is shown in a cross section rapped around the cylindrical part in red. Not shown is the torsion bar (similar to what was used on the Honda CB450 motorcycle) that would turn the short rocker arm which in turn helps close the conventional poppet valve.

Please contact me if you have any suggestions or questions regarding this double acting valve or this proprosed compressor.
