ALBERT J. insane, or



Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented cease. 1917.

Application filed July 21,1916. Serial No. 110,4i35.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALBERT J. Fismcn, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Pontiac, in the county of Oakland and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Heaters, of which the following a spei zification, reference-being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to heaters, and my invention aims to provide a simple and du 'rahle container or receptacle that may be easily placed upon the exhaust manifold of an internal combustion engine, to utilize the exhaust nmni'l'old and the exhaust therethrough as a heating medium or agent for the contents of the receptacle or container.

My invention further aims to provide a receptacle or container that may he advantagcously used for heating coffee, water or any liquid; the receptacle or container being applicable to tlmcxhaust manifold of various types of automobile explosive engines.

My invention further aims to accomplish the above results by a mechanical construc tion that will be hereinafter described and claimed and reference will now he had to the drawing, wherein- T Figure 1 is a side elevation of a heater as ap lied to the exhaust manifold of an automo ile engine; I

Fig. 2 is a plan of the heater detached;

Fig. 3 is an end View of the same, and

Fig. 4 is a similar view of a modified form of heater.

The heater comprises an oblong receptacle or container having end walls 1, side walls 2 and 3, a bottom wall 4, and a top wall 5, all of these walls being made of light, durable and non-corrodible metal shaped and con nected where necessary to provide nonleakable receptacle.

The top wall 5, intermediate the ends thereof, has a pivoted boil 'or handle 6 and at one end of said wall there is an opening normally closed by a detachable cap 7, which permits of the receptacle being filled. At

the opposite end of the top wall 5 there is :1

connection including elbows 8 and e pipe or conduit 9, said connection cdnstituting "at steam exhaust for the receptacl and also serving functionally as means to; anchoring or retaining me receptacle upon the exhaust The pipe 9 and its el-' the dash board 12, thus permitting of the chauffeur or an occupant of the automobile ascertaining when the contents of the receptaclc have been sufficiently heated or reached a boiling point.

One oi the end walls'l has a conventional form oi faucet or spigot 13 by which the contents of the receptacle may be with: drawn, and in some instances, the opposite end wall of the receptacle may be provided within connection 14 as a substitute for the pipe 1) and the elbows 8.

The bottom Wall l of the receptacle, at the side wall 3, has a longitudinal arched portion 15 "and the end walls 1 are cut away to provide clearance whereby the arched non tion may extend throughout the length of the receptacle and have for one of its walls the side wall 3, as best shown in Fig. 3. With the arched portion .15 contiguous to the wall 3, this form of receptacle can be advantageously used in connection with the exhaust manifoldof the well known type 9? Ford engine. Since the manifold of the engine is in proximity to the cylinders the wall 3 of the receptacle may rest against the cylinders and be heated thereby.

Iii Fig. of the drawings there is shown receptacle 16 having a? central longitudinal arched portion 17 and this type of receptacle may be placed upon vthe manifold which is l'f'cated some distance from the engine cylinders. In this connection, it is to be under?" stood "that the arched portion of the bottom wall of the receptacle may be located at any desired point which will permit of the receptacle iieing fitted down over the exh ust manifoldand held against later-1i displn ment. w lfl hal; ill clai' heater co nrising receptacle side walls antic hottoni wall, said i well proQ-videdwith a longitudinal arche portion at one' of'tae side walls adapted to provide clearance for the exhaust manifold. ceptacle on the ezghaust 'manifold, and a of an automobile eng ne and permlt of said. faucet at the opposite end of said receptacle. 1c
