A regenerative monopropellant inflator having improved initiation of the regenerative cycle and improve operating efficiency. The inflator may direct the flow of the monopropellant into a localized volume to create a "hot spot" to increase combustion. This serves to ensure that the regenerative cycle is initiated. Various arrangements are provided to increase the residence time of the combusting monopropellant within the inflator, to ensure complete combustion of the monopropellant, and thus increased efficiency. These arrangements include inducing a hel...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A regenerative monopropellant airbag inflator, comprising:a housing having a longitudinal axis and defining an interior, said interior including at least one exit port extending through said housing;an piston within said interior, said piston dividing said interior into a fuel supply chamber and a combustion chamber, said exit port communicating with said combustion chamber, and said piston being mounted for movement along said longitudinal axis;a quantity of fluid monopropellant housed within said fuel supply chamber;an initi...
