Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9708445A1] An EEGR valve (60) has improved concentricity of parts and better resistance to muddy water intrusion at an ambient air space (76) that provides for ambient air to pass through for cooling the valve. A lower stator member (174) has a through-hole (184) to which a bearing member (140) that guides a pintle shaft (114) is concentrically disposed. A frusto-conical surface (182) extends from through-hole (184) to the ambient air space (76).
