Abstract (en)

A compressor has a housing, which supports a rotary shaft (14), and a crank chamber (12a). A swash plate (18) is accommodated in the crank chamber (12a). The compressor has an oil chamber (29) located in the housing near a front end portion of the rotary shaft. The oil chamber (29) has an inlet (29a) and an outlet (29b). The outlet (29b) connects to the suction pressure zone. Either lubricant oil that is separated from refrigerant gas or refrigerant gas in the suction pressure zone flows into the oil chamber (29) from the inlet (29a) and flows out from the outlet (29b) to the suction pressure zone. A seal mechanism (30) seals the oil chamber (29). A seal (32) seals between the oil chamber (29) and the crank chamber (12a). This permits an inclination angle of the swash plate (18) to control accurately and smoothly while lubricating the seal mechanism (30) optimally. <IMAGE>
