Patent Number: 6,305,170

Title: Engine waste heat recovering apparatus

Abstract: An exhaust gas released from the exhaust gas heat exchanger 9 is conveyed into the inlet of a bend 32 communicated to a silencer 31. The exhaust gas mixed with the condensed water is upwardly passed as a mixture fluid through a passage 322 and forced into a first expansion chamber 323. The mixture fluid is separated into the exhaust gas and the condensed water in the chamber 323 and conveyed downwardly in a passage 324 provided with a second expansion chamber 325. While the exhaust gas is forced upwardly from the lower end of the silencer 31, the condensed water is discharged downwardly. The condensed water is conveyed in the drain passage of a waster water trap and released to the outside.
