APPLICATION FILED MAR. 5. 1918 1313,518. Patented Aug. 19, 1919.,



tain new and useful Improvements in Radiators, of which the following isa specification.

This invention has for its object the provision of a simple, inexpensive and efi'i'cient device which may be readily connected to Specification of Letters Iatent.

any radiator and 'by which the heating medium will be distributed equally to all the sections of the radiator.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanyi-ng drawings and will be hereinafter I fully described, and it resides in certain novel features which will be particularly pointed out in the claim following the description.

In the drawings:

Figure 1 is a sectional view' of a portion of a radiator showing my improved device in position therein.

Fig. 2 is an elevation of a portion of the heating nozzle. I

Fig. 3 is a transverse section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.

The radiator is composed of a plurality of sections 1 which may be of, any wellknown structure and are connected in the usual manner. At the supply end of the radiator is a collar or nut 2 through-which is inserted a nozzle 3 consisting of a pipe or other tubular member which is preferably of metal and has one end open, while the opposite end is closed, as shown at 5. The collar 2 receives a coupling member 6 which is engaged by a coacting coupling member 7' threaded onto the pipe which supplies the steam or other heating fluid. At intervals along the nozzle 3 are openings 8,which are so spaced that a group or set of openings will be located at or near the central plane of each radiator section and it will be noted that the openings are formed in sets or groups so that the vapor may escape from the nozzle at all sides of the same and play upon all the walls of the several radiator sections.

The open end of the nozzle may be fitted directly to the inner end of the coupling 6 but I prefer to employ a union 9' engaging a Patented Aug. 19. 1919.

convex annular rib or flange 10 on the nozzle and having threaded engagement with a pressure-increaser member 11 which flares outwardly, as showmand is brazed or otherwise secured to the inner end of the coupling 6 so as to be rigid and fluid tight. The connection shown and described is necessary when the radiator valve is of large diameter and is advantageous in all cases in fitting the attachment to the radiator. There is a tendency of the nozzle to gyrate within the radiator, especially during assembling, and the union connection with the'convex rib accommodates this movement while maintaining a perfect joint.

The operation of the be obvious. usual manner and the coupling 6 is fitted in thecollar 2 which, in turn, is secured in one end section of the radiator, the nozzle being device is thought to thereby extended through the several radiatorsections, as clearly shown in Fig. 1. When the steam or other vapor is turned into the supply pipe, it will flow into the nozzle 3 and will 1 the same instead of passing directly into the radiator sections successively. Consequently, one radiator section will not be heated while the others remain cold nor will the heat remain at one end of any radiator section, but the heating fluid will be admitted to all the radiator sections simultaneously and the radiator will be heated uniformly throughout its extent and, consequently, a more rapid distribution of the heat within the room or com- The radiator is set up in the partment will be 'eflected. The device is ob- Having thus described the invention, What I claim as new is:

The comblnatlon wlth a radlator, of a collar fitted therein, a coupling carried by the collar and having an outwardly flared member at its inner end, a nozzle extending into the radiator and having its outer end abut- 5 ting the inner end of said flared member andprovided with an external annular rib,

and a union secured-upon-the flared member and engaging over said annular rib'on'tho nozzle, the nozzle being provided with esca e openings between its ends. 10
