Description

Nov. 10, 1925 W. KIGER ELECTRIC WATER HEATER Filed Jan 24, 1925 Wffzjez;
Patented Nov. 10, 1925.
PATENT OFFICE.
WILLIAM KIGER, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI.
ELECTRIC WATER HEATER.
Application filed January To all whom it may concern:
Be 1t known that I, \VILLIAM Krona, a
citizen of the United States, residing at St.
Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Electric ater Heaters, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in water heaters and is more particularly adapted to a device whereby water may be heated by the immersion of a portable electric heater in a receptacle containing the water to be heated.
' Another important object of the invention is to provide an electric water heater of the above mentioned character, which will save considerable time and labor obviating the necessity of having to lift the receptacle filled with water from a heater or stove, such as is now commonly done.
A further object is to provide an electric water heater of the above mentioned character, wherein the same is of such construction as to permit the device to be readily attached to a suitable electric socket or plug, when the device is in use, the heater being further of such construction as to facilitate the removal thereof from the water after the latter has been heated, without any danger of the person scalding her hands.
A still further object is to provide an electric water heater of the above mentioned character, which is simple in construction, inexpensive, strong and durable, and further well adapted for the purposes for which it is designed.
Other objects and advantages of this invention will become apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals designate like parts throughout the same:
The figure represents a view, partly in elevation, and partly in section of the elec tric water heater embodying my invention.
In the drawing, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown the preferred embodiment of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the base, the same being preferab y in the form of a ring. A metallic receptacle 2 is supported centrally above the ring 1, through the medium of the supporting member 3, in the manner as clearly il- 24, 1925. Serial No. 4,458.
lustrated in the drawing. The upper end of the receptacle is open and is externally threaded. Adapted to be arranged within the receptacle 2 is the electric heating unit, designated generally by the numeral 4, and the same may be of any suitable construction well known in the art. Suitable insulation, such as illustrated at 5, is interposed between the electric heating unit a, and the inner wall of the metallic receptacle or cas ing 2. An insulator 6 of any suitable material, such as asbestos, porcelain or the like, is disposed within the insulated sleeve 5 and carries the terminals or bolts 7 and 8, the lower ends of which have secured thereto the electric wires.
A closure 9 is provided for the upper open end of the receptacle or casing 2, the closure being internally threaded for detachable engagement with the external threads provided on the upper portion of the receptacle. An elongated tubular member 10 extends upwardly from the closure 9 and provides a means for housing the wires 11, which are secured to the upper ends of the respeo tive terminals or bolts carried by the insulator 6, suitable insulation being disposed around the wires, which extend upwardly through the tubular member 10. An electric plug or socket, designated generally by the numeral 12 is mounted in the upper portion of the tubular member 10 and is connected to the upper end of the respective wires 11. The provision of the plug, in the upper portion of the tubular member 10 affords a means whereby the device may be connected to a suitable wall socket or plug. A handle designated generally by the numeral 13 is arranged at the upper end of the tubular member 10, for facilitating the handling of the device.
The electric water heater embodying the present invention is of such size as to enable the same to be readily inserted in a receptacle, such as a wash tub, washing machine, bath tub, basin or the like, for heating the water therein, it being only necessary to con nect the plug 12 with a suitable source of supply, whereupon the current will flow through the wiring to the heating unit 4 and by immersion, the water in the receptacle will be heated in a very short time.
The provision of an electric water heater of the above mentioned character will save considerable time and labor, as Well as expense in obviating the necessity of a person having to first heat a quantity of Water n a receptacle placed on a stove, an: then having to lift the receptacle after the Water has been heated from the stove, when it is desired to use the same. Oftentimes, considerable injury Will result due to the handling ofb oiling Water in this manner and by providing an electric Water heater of the character-above described, a person may readily and easily handle the device, Witlk invention and the scope of the appended claim.
Having thus descrlbed my invention, What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
An electric Water heater comprising in combination, a ring like base, a metallic reccptacle, upwardly converging arms secured at their lower ends to said ring and at their upper ends to the upper portion of the receptacle for securing the latter centrally above the ring, an electric heating unit disposed in the receptacle, and insulated therefrom, a cover detach-ably secured on the open upper end of the receptacle, a tubular member estending upwardly therefrom, an electric plug supported on the upper portion of the tubular member and connected to said heating element, and handleassociated With the. upper end of the tubular member.
In testimony whereof I afiiX my signa ture.
WILLIAM KIGER.
