IGNITIOK FLASH PLUG.

Application filed September 8, 1924. Serial No. 738,528.

is now in common practice and use, thereby igniting the entire contents of the engine cylinder, instead of one point only as 1s the case with the ordinary electric spark.

Another object is to produce an ignition 10 flash plug that can be filled with gas inde pendently of'the engine cylinders, so designed that it will produce an internal explosion within the plug prior to the explosion within the engine cylinder, and pro-- ducing a flame for igniting the gas in the engine cylinders.

.further object is to provide an ignition flash plug that will operate automatically under the action of the engine cylinder vacuum, for filling and discharging the combustion chamber therein.

These several objects are attained by the construction and arrangement of parts more fully hereinafter set forth.

Similar parts on all drawings are marked by similar numerals; i Fig. 1 is a side view of the flash ignition plug assembled, showing the gas intake pipe, and the flash ports.

Fig. 2 is a top view ofthe assembled plug.

Fig. 3 is a sectional view of the plug taken on the line BB of Fig. 2, showlng the general arrangements of parts.

Fig. 4 is a sectionalview AA-- of Fig. 3, through the gas inlet channel and chamber, showing the insulating from the main casing.

Fig. 5 is an alternate terminal cap which may be substituted in place of the insulated cap shown in the assembled drawing, where direct contact is desired for the ignition points.

Fig. 6 shows a modified form of the flash plug having the gas chamber and operating valve installed in the outside of the casing, and inserting the ordinary spark plug within the casing opening for igniting the gas in the combustion chamber. The principle and operating are the same as the former plu I v Fig. 7 is a top view of Fig. 6.

Fig. 8 is a sectional view CC of Fig. 7, showing the generalconstruction and arrangements of the working parts.

Fig. 9 is a modified form of Fig. 6, with the gas chamber and operating valve in a vertical position instead of horizontal.

Fig. 10 is a top view of Fig. 9.

Fig. 11 is a sectional view -DD of Fig. 10, showing the general construction and arrangement of parts.

I will now describe more fully the detailed construction of my flash plug, referring to the drawings and the marks thereon.

The general construction of my device comprises a threaded metallic casing for screwing into the opening in an engine cylinder head, and providedwith an internal combustion chamber therein, which proects through'and beyond the inner surface of the engine cylinder head, and communicates therewith through small ports in the sides of the combustion chamber walls. Adjacent to the combustion chamber is a gas supply chamber, which is closedand regulated by an intervening check valve, said chamber being connected to a gas supply tank by suitable'pipes and valves, and in the ordinary operation on gas engines it may be conveniently. connected to the gas intake manifold ofthe engine, receiving gas from the same supply as the engine cylinders. A light regulating spring is attached to the check valve for keeping it closed on the valve seat, except as opened under the vacuum of the engine cylinder when taking charge of gas. Within the combustion chamber are electric spark points, properly insulated from each other, for ignlting the gas in the combustion chamber, causing a flame to be shot from all port openings, and into the cylinders of the engine, igniting the entire cylinder gas at' the same instant.

The casing 1 is made of metal and similar in shape to a machinenut with an extended hollow cylindrical body 2 projecting from one end thereof, forming an internal combustion chamber 3. The cylindrical projection 2 is closed at the outer end thereof, and'is provided with external threads 4- for engaging threaded opening in the wall of the engine cylinder head, projecting the closed end of the combustion chamber inside the engine cylinder. Small ports --5 pass through the chamber walls providing a passage from the combustion chamber into the engine cylinder. The open end of the casing is provided with a cylindrical opening -6-, having a supporting shoulder 7 turned therein and enlarging the outer end of the casing opening. The enlarged portion of the casing -1-- carrying internal threads 8 for receiving the threaded bushing nut -9therein. Within the cylindrical portion of the casing 1- is inserted an insulating cylinder 1 0, of porcelain, or any suitable material for insulating, and having an external collar 1l-- projecting therefrom for engag.

ing the shoulder 7 of the casing -1, and the bushing nut 9 screwed therein. Washer gaskets 12- are placed between the insulator collar -11 and the casing and bushing'nut 9 for. making an air tight joint therein. Vithin the insulating cylinder -10 is inserted a metallic valve sleeve 13-, having a spring recess -14 in one end thereof and a gas supply chamber 15- in the other end. The valve sleeve being provided with a projecting collar 16 at the chamber end thereof for engaging the end of the insulating cylinder, the other end of the valve sleeve being threaded to receive the lock nut 17--, for clamping and retaining the sleeve within the insulator cylinder 10--. Between the lock nut 17 and the insulator 10 1 s a washer-gasket 18 for making the joint air tight. Inside the valve sleeve -13- is movably mounted the valve stem 19 and valve 20-. The valve -20 being seated over the opening of the gas supply chamber 15, forming an air tight joint and separating the chamber 15 from the combustion chamber -3. At the opposite end of the valve stem -.19 is mounted acoil. compression spring 21- with supporting washer 22, for holding the valve closed against the valve seat. Qpening into the gas supply chamber -15- 1s a gas inlet passage 23- and inlet. pipe 24- leading from a gas supply tank. or other source of gas supply, preferably the intake pipe be attached to the gas intake manifold of the gas engine. From the outer face of the valve 20- is projected a metalhc ignition point 25, same being thoroughly insulated from the casing -1- by the insulating cylinder -10. Projecting from the walls of the casing 1, within the combustion chamber, are several metallic ignition points 26, and; grounded therein, and so arranged as to leave small gaps between the ends thereof and the valve ignition point 25- for passing an electric spark when an electric current is connected to the terminal ignition points, for igniting gas in the combustion chamber 3 when under pressure of the engine cylinders. The combustion and explosion within the combustion chamber -3. causes a flame to shoot from the small ports -5-, for igniting the-gas in the engine cylinder. At the threaded iend of the valve sleeve -13- is mounted a hollow terminal cap 2T-. made of insulating material suitable for that purpose and carries a terminal bolt 28 secured thereto by nuts 29- and -30-. On the outer end of the terminal bolt 28- is an adjustable nut -3lfor making an electrical wire connection there to. The terminal bolt 28 is adjustable endwise within the cap 27, to provide a small gap between the end thereof and the adjacent end of the valve stem -19-, providing a second spark gap in the ignition circuit for increasing the intensity of the spark within the combustion chamber 3. 1t desired, the entire cap 27- may be r e-' placed by the metallic cap-32-, shown in Fig. 5. making a direct connection of the electric circuit with the valve terminal 25.

An alternate, or modified form of my invention is illustrated in Figs. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, showing the same invention, but with the gas chamber and valve at the side, and an ordinary spark plug inserted within the casing for igniting the gas within the combustion chamber. Figs. 6, '7, and 8 show the gas valve and chamber in a horizontal position, and Figs. 9, 10 and 11 show the gas valve and chamber in a. vertical position. Both operating exactlv the same. The casing 33 being similar to the type heretofore described in Fig. 3, also provided with an external thread 34- on the combustion chamber wall for engaging the threaded opening in the engine cylinder head. The opposite end of the casing being provided with an internal thread 35- for receiving and retaining a standard' spark plug 36 of the ordinary type, projecting the ignition points of said spark plug into the opening of the combustion chamber 37--. At one side of the casing '-33- is an intake gaspassage- 38- leading directly into the combustion chamber, and is provided with an intake gas check; valve 39 and a connecting gas supply chamber 40. The check v ve 39 separating and closing the supply chamber 40-- from the passage --3S-. A gas suppl pipe 41- opening into the gas cham r 40-. A coil spring -42- is mounted on and attached to the check valve holding same in a closed position, keeping -the two chambers separated at all times exform, except the valve and gas chamber are arranged at one side to allow the use of a standard spark plug therein.

In operating my device it can be easily seen that when it is' attached to the cylinder head of an engine, as heretofore described, the vacuum caused by the operating engine cylinders will also create a like vacuum within the combustion chamberof the flash plug, opening the check valve and filling the combustion chamber with gas from the gas supply chamber and supply pipe attached thereto, and the compression stroke of the engine cylinder likewise compressing the gas within the combustion chamber of the plug. The compressed gas in the combustion chamber is then ignited by the electric spark points positioned therein, through the action of an electric current passed through the plug circuit, causing aflame to be shot out of each of the port openings, into the cylinder gas within the engine cylinder, thus igniting the gas therein by a hot flame throughout the cylinder, instead of at one point by a small spark asis the case with the ordinary spark plug.

I do not wish to be confined to the exact construction and arrangement of parts herein shown and described, as it is obvious that my invention is subject to various modifications and arrangements of the mechanical details, without departing from the spirit of my invention.
