Title:
ADDITIVE TANK FOR VEHICLE HAVING INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2011140959
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide an additive tank which is simple, easy to fill cleanly an additive and without the additive coming into contact with the ambient air, and in which the additive is not subjected to variations in pressure (for example due to altitude, atmospheric pressure, etc.), thus improving the accuracy with which it is metered.

This invention relates to the additive tank for a vehicle having an internal combustion engine. The additive tank (1) includes a flexible bag (2) for containing the additive. The flexible bag (2) is also connected to devices (7 and 8) capable of pressurizing the flexible bag (2) for metering the additive. Thus, the additive tank (1) has a simple structure. In the additive tank (1), the additive is cleanly filled without contacting with the ambient air, and the additive is not subjected to variations in pressure due to altitude, atmospheric pressure, etc. Thus, the metering accuracy of the additive tank (1) is improved.
