Abstract : The patent concerns an anticarbon device for a scroll-type carburetor consisting of a frustro-conical plug mounted on the upstream wall of the spin chamber at a location along the axis of the core outlet and the primary vortex. A plurality of passageways formed therethrough permit air to be introduced into the scroll and directed against those wall locations where carbon deposits usually form because of the reverse high temperature gas flow. The plug also retains the high air/fuel velocities through the swirl vanes for flashback prevention.
