Title: Slide valve apparatus for internal combustion engine

Abstract

This patent describes an internal combustion engine including a combustion cylinder having an opening at one end thereof, a piston mounted within the cylinder for coaxial reciprocable movement, a driven crankshaft, and a connecting rod connecting the crankshaft to the cylinder for linear reciprocable movement of the piston in response to the rotary movement of the crankshaft, a valve apparatus comprising: (a) a valve chamber extending longitudinally across and in fluid communication with the opening in the cylinder, (b) an intake valve plate having a longitudinal axis mounted within the valve chamber for slidable, reciprocable, longitudinal movement, (c) an exhaust valve plate having a longitudinal axis mounted within the valve chamber alongside the intake valve plate for slidable, reciprocable, longitudinal movement and parallel to the longitudinal axis of the intake valve plate, (d) each of the valve plates having a plurality of longitudinally spaced valve ports therein, the valve ports comprising movable intake valve ports in the intake valve plate and movable exhaust valve ports in the exhaust valve plate, (e) the valve chamber comprising a planar wall on the opposite side of the valve plates from the cylinder opening and having a plurality of fixed valve ports therethrough. Themore » fixed valve ports being equal in number and substantially equal in size and spacing as the movable intake and exhaust valve ports, whereby the movable intake valve ports are adapted to register with their corresponding fixed valve ports when the intake valve plate is in its intake operative position for opening fluid communication between the cylinder and the corresponding fixed valve ports.« less
