Abstract (de)

Diese Brennkraftmaschine ist mit einer Entlüftungseinrichtung (21) ausgestattet, die zur Kurbelgehäusentlüftung (22) dient. Die Entlüftungseinrichtung (21) wirkt mit einem Ölabscheider (25) zusammen, ist mit einer Ansaugleitung (10) verbunden und darüber hinaus mit Drosseln versehen. Zur Erweiterung des Anwendungsbereichs und Wirkungsoptimierung der Entlüftungseinrichtung (21) umfaßt letztere die Kurbelgehäuseentlüftung (22) und eine Turboladerentlüftung (23), wobei die Kurbelgehäusentlüftung und die Turboladerentlüftung eine dem Ölabscheider zugeordnete Verteilereinheit angeschlossen sind. Die Verteilereinheit weist eine erste Drossel (28) und eine zweite Drossel (29) auf. Dabei steht die erste Drossel (28) unter Zwischenschaltung des Ölabscheiders (25) mit einer mit der an die Ansaugleitung (10) verbundenen ersten Leitung in Verbindung; die zweite Drossel (29) ist über eine zweite Leitung (32) mit der Ansaugleitung verbunden. Die Entlüftungseinrichtung ist im Saugbetrieb über die zweite Leitung und im Laderbetrieb über die erste Leitung wirksam. <IMAGE>
