Abstract:

A fuel flow distribution system having a hydraulically actuated flow sensing valve, a hydraulically operated switch assembly and at least one hydraulically operated on-off valve assembly. These elements are operably connected to a metered flow manifold and a plurality of distributor lines. The flow sensing valve supplies fuel to the manifold. Various flow rates of the fuel within the distributor lines causes the flow sensing valve to emit a single. Upon receipt of this signal the switch assembly transmits the signal to the valves making up each valve assembly. The on-off valve assembly assemblies alters the flow restriction at the distributor lines in such a manner as to limit the change of pressure therein. Author
