INDUCTION-COILHEAT-DISSIPATING STRUCTURE.

27p itmag concern:

QBQ it l cnow n that I, ARTHUR ATWATER a,citizen of the United States, residing d- Ardmore, county of Montgomery, and, 1 of Pennsylvania, have invented ne w andnseful improvements in Indnetionecoil-Heat-Dissipating Structures,

eigai duetia (if whichtthej following is a specification. ;:,My,inventi on relates to means for carryinggpif heat from a winding of electrical appgigatus, and particularly from a winding 0' yyapdingsof an induction coil, especially 3w, ,enprgforming part of an ignition system for igniting sparks to an internal com 1stion;,engine a winding or windings l, particularly when employed in a closed circuit system, often having generated therein excessive heat, es pecially when the engine stops in such position,thaQ-the,interrupter contacts leave the p i ary manial e .HMN; JlYeti ni e d n, a heat dissipat 1ng,st17uctur comprising means preferably oigoodheat conductivity disposed adjacent on more r less;embracing the winding or windings toabsorb heat therefrom and con duct it awa ;.from the winding or windings and delivering-it to another medium, for example, asolid or liquid medium surround- 111% or immersing the structure.

be bentto right for left 'tdany H When heat is developedin the adjacent sand or the like, in which the induction coil structure-is immersedcr embedded, as described, for example, in the ,co-pendjng application of William A.- Evans, ,Ser. No. 348,603.

By recourse to the heat conducting strucother, as upon a dwell, and the resistance of the circuit should be relatively low, considerabie heat will be liberated in the coils, raising; ales tem erature-be a rise in tem} perature to undesired or dangerous point is revented by conducting away heat y the abotfe uesetibea structure.

WhiIe Ihave describedthe structure as odiipeiatiiig' 'pai'ti'cilljarly with 'the primary winaieg i will be unseed d that it may us similarlyboopera'te with the secondary winding, di xw ith any other winding oi electripalapp'i atusbf other or diiierenttype In 'Figs."4 to 6 inclusive is illustrated a modified structure wherein the member 6 is right and left over ofifadjiicent to 'bbth primary and secondary windings, orf into any other suitable osition or iela itih. Furthermore, the merrier 6 may ,be provided with the inner flange-Z 11, termed a corlifiaiige', surrounding the s "061 land disposed between it and the s'urio'undin primary winding, whereby fun theifheat'fiis i'bi g surface is enews presented to eat may be In'tis instance again the member 6 is slotted bompletely throngh, asby slot 10, which also 'eyers 'the cylindrical flange 11, 'whichaccbrdingly also is c'i'rcumfere'ntially intiomp'lete'f,"

Iii lieu o rodi'l'cin'g fins, by slittingc'the heat eonducti dg member, the same may be formed as indicated in Figs. 7 and 8, wherein the r riernber 6 terminates in a laterally extending tlan'g 1Q, the structure being com 'pletely cut slot 10 to preiient formation of a closed circuit.

In Figs; 9 and 1 0is a structuresimilar to that shown in Figshifl and 8, except that thcieis provided'in addition a core flange 11, which with thejijemai nder of the struclure is completely cut through by a slot 10.
