To deploy an inflatable member, such as an occupant restraint safety bag in a motor vehicle, a buffer zone is pressurized by the firing of inflation initiator to release liquid propellant into the buffer zone through ruptured frangible seals in a stationary separator disk or in a movable piston for controlled ignition. The ignited liquid propellant generates a large volume of gas that is cooled and pressurize buffered prior to inflating introduction into the safety bag.
Occupant restraint apparatus for a motor vehicle, comprising: an inflatable safety bag; a housing having at least one vent in inflating fluid flow communication with the safety bag; a reservoir of liquid propellant positioned in the housing; a buffer zone positioned in the housing; a first frangible seal separating the liquid propellant reservoir from the buffer zone; a second frangible seal blocking fluid flow communication between the buffer zone and the housing vent; and an inflation initiator, operating in response to a high impact vehicular accident...
