Patent Number: 6,168,136

Title: Gas valve

Abstract: Gas valve (1) to be arranged in an intake port (2) of a combustion engine. In order to be able to give the valve different flow characteristics in a simple manner, the valve (1) comprises two plates (8, 24) disposed parallel to one another, between which the valve body (9) is arranged with clearance, which valve body (9) can shut off a discharge opening (11). By varying the degree of clearance, the amount of gas passing through the valve (1) can be varied. This variation in the valve lift can be achieved by adapting the height of an adjusting ring (5).
