Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented May 7, 1907.
Application filed March 16, 1906. Serial No. 306,339.
To all whom, it Woo/y concern:
Be it known that 1, PETER S. KNOTH, a
. citizen of the United States, and a resident full, clear, and exact description.
of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Shield for Heating-Coils, of which the following is a The invention relates to heating coils such as are used in schools, ofiices, stores and other buildings and places, and the object of the invention is to provide a new and improved shield arranged for convenient and quick attachment to the coil without requiring any addition ora change in the constrpction and arrangement of the heating coi The invention consists of novel features and parts and combinations of the same which willbe more fully described hereinafter and then pointed out in the claims.
A practical embodiment ofthe invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all views.
Figure 1 is a rear elevation of the improvement as applied; Fig. 2 is a transverse section of the same on the line 22 of Fig. 1, and Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the shield-supporting blocks.
The heating coil A, on which the im rovement is applied, consists of horizontal y disposed tubes A connected with each other in the usual manner by elbows A and the said coil is mounted on stands B set on the floor of the room in which the heating coil is used. The adjacent tubes A, preferably thetwo upper tubes and the two lower tubes, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, carry supporting blocks C each provided with-approximately half-round top and, bottom seats C. and C in which the adjacent tubes A are seated, each block being of a thickness slightly less than the distance between the adjacent tubes A to permit of conveniently passing the blocks with the flat sides between the adjacenttubes (see dotted line, Fig. 1, at the middle lower block) and to then give the block a quarter turn to engage the seats C, C with the adjacent tubes A. The bottoms of the seats C, C? of each block C are preferably spaced apart at a distance slightly exceeding the distance between the adjacent tubes A so that the said tubes are slightly sprung apart on turning the block thus caus-' ing the firm seating of the tubes C, C or, in other words, the block C is clamped in place so that no further fastening devices are re quired to hold j each block in position.
From each, of :the blocks C extends forwardly a screw or 'a bolt D, engaging a shield E roper made of sheet metal or other suitcoil A to prevent children or other persons from coming indirect contact with the heating coil, and also to prevent the direct intense radiation of heat from the coil to the children seated next tothe heating coil A. A spacer F may beplaced on each screw or bolt D between the front face of the corresponding block C and the inner face of the shield E to space the shield E adesired distance from the front face of the heating coil A. Braces or brackets G may be attached to a chair-rail H or other part of a wall I and connected with the bolts D at the rear faces of some of the blocks C, preferably the upper outmost blocks, as shown in the drawings, the braces serving to steady the heating coil A and the shield E supported therefrom. By
arranging the shield'supporting blocks C between adjacent tubes A it is evident that the latter can readily expand and contract without affecting the position of the shield E or straining the bolts or screws D.
The device is verysimple and durable in construction, cheap to manufacture, readily order.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent:
1. The combination with a heating coil, of a shield for the same and shield supporting blocks each provided with seats and ada ted to be inserted between adjacent tubes of the heating coil, the said blocks being clamped in position between the adjacent tubes by the spring action of said tubes.
9 The combination with a heating coil, of
i a shield, and shield suplporting blocks each adapted to be inserte( between adjacent tubes of the heating coil, and provided with seats for engagement by said tubes to clamp the blocks .in position by the spring action of said tubes, and bolts held on the said blocks and connected with the shield to hold the same in front of the coil.
3. The combination with a heating coil, of a shield, and a'shield'supporting block having seats adaptedfor engagement by the adapplied, and not liable to get easily outof ab e material, and extending in front of the i jacent tubes of the heating coil, the said block having flat sides and the thickness of the block being slightly less than the distance between ad acent tubes of the coil to permit of conveniently assing the block between adjacent-tubes, the bottoms of the seats in said block being s aced apart a distance slightly exceeding t e distance between adj acent tubes, whereby when the said block is passed between the tubes and turned to enga e the seats with the adjacent tubes, the tubes are slightly sprung apart and the block is clamped in position by the spring action of said tubes.
4 The combination with a heating coil, of ashield for said coil, and a shield supporting block adapted to be inserted between.adjacent tubes of the coil and having seats on the to and bottom for en agementby the said tu es, the bottoms of t e seats in said block being spaced apart a distance slightly exceeding the distance between the tubes,
whereby when the block is seated in position it is clamped between the tubes by their spring action, a bolt connectin said shield with said block, and a spacer eld on said bolt be ween the front face .of the su porting block and the rear face of the shiel 5. The combination with a shield for a heating coil, of a shield su porting block having seats on the top and bottom for engagement by the adjacent tubes of the heat ing coil, a bolt extend ng through the said block and engaging the shield at its front end and a bracket held on the rear end of the bolt and adapted to be connected with the wall of the building.
f 6. The combination with a heating coil, of a shield su porting block having seats for enhaving, horizontally dis osed tubes, of shield supporting blocks, eac having seats at the to and bottom for engagement by adjacent tu es of the heating coil, a shield located at the front of the heating coil, bolts connecting said shield with the said blocks, s acers held on said bolts between the inner ace of the shield and the front faces of said blocks, and brackets adapted to be attached to-a suitable sup ort and connected with the rear ends of sum ry of said bolts.
8. The combinationwith a heating coil, of
shield supporting blocks each ada ted to be inserted etween ad acent tubes 0 the heating coil and provided with half round top and bottom seats ada ted to be forced into engagement with sai tubes, whereby the blocksare held' in position solely by the clam ing engagement of said tubes therewith, and bolts held on the said blocks and connected with the shield to hold the same in front of the coil.
9'. The combination with a shieldvfor a heating coil, of shield'supporting blocks, having seats for engagement by'adjacent tubes of the heating coil at the upper and lower part of said coil, bolts extending through the said blocks and engaging the shield at their front ends, and brackets adapted to be at tached to a support and connected with the bolts atthe rear faces of the upper outmost blocks. f
10. The combination with a heating coil, of a shield for said'coil, a shield supporting block clamped between adjacent tubes of said coil by the spring action of the tubes, and means for connecting said block with saidshield. i
vIn testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
