Description

    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention relates generally to the field of vaporizers for releasing essential active constituents, such as nicotine, by heating plant materials. More specifically, the present invention discloses a portable vaporizer for plant materials.
  • 2. Statement of the Problem
  • Inhalation devices for smoking tobacco or vaporizing various medicaments (e.g., nicotine) from plant materials are known in the art. These devices typically include an electrical heating element for igniting the tobacco or medicament. The resulting smoke and/or vapor is then inhaled by the user.
  • For example, U.S. Pat. No. 7,293,565 (Griffin et al.) discloses an electrically-heated cigarette smoking system with a stand containing a rechargeable power supply. As shown in FIGS. 13-16 of Griffin et al., the stand can also include recharging electronics powered by an adapter that plugs into the cigarette lighter of a vehicle.
  • However, there remains a need for an easy to use, hand-held device that allows for the release of the essential active constituents of a plant substance through vaporization, using sufficient heat and air to release them without burning the substance and without creating the toxic byproducts of combustion. This not only reduces the health risk to the user but also to neighboring non-smokers by alleviating second-hand smoke. In addition, there remains a need for a portable vaporizer that can be plugged directly into a conventional vehicle cigarette lighter.
  • 3. Solution to the Problem
  • The present invention allows for the inhalation of the active constituents of a plant material by vaporization, rather than combustion. It includes a housing configured and sized to fit in the user's hand during use. In addition, it can be plugged into a conventional automobile cigarette lighter to create a heated air stream that is drawn through the plant material to produce a substance vapor that can be inhaled by an individual. The present device is unique in that it can be plugged into a conventional vehicle cigarette lighter and is completely independent of any power source once the electrical heating element has reached temperature.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • This invention provides a portable vaporizer for plant material having an inhalation tube with a distal end for insertion into a cigarette lighter receptacle of a vehicle. An electrical heating element within the inhalation tube is powered by the vehicle's electrical system when inserted into a cigarette lighter receptacle. A plant material chamber on the proximal end of the inhalation tube has openings allowing air from the inhalation tube to be drawn through the inhalation tube, heated by the electrical heating element, and then drawn through the plant material held in the plant material chamber. A housing having a mouthpiece and baffles surrounds the plant material chamber to reduce the temperature of the heated air and vaporized plant material. The user inhales the mixture of heated air and vaporized plant material through the mouthpiece by drawing air through the inhalation tube, plant material chamber and housing.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • FIGS. 1 and 2 are front and rear perspective views of an embodiment of the present invention. This embodiment is shown in further detail in the cross-sectional views of the vaporizer 5 depicted in FIGS. 6 and 7. The major components of the vaporizer 5 include an inhalation tube 10, an electrical heating element 20, a housing 40, and a plant material chamber 30.
  • FIG. 8 is an exploded cross-sectional view of the inhalation tube 10 and plant material chamber 30 assembly. The distal end of the inhalation tube 10 is designed for insertion into the socket of a conventional cigarette lighter socket 50 of a vehicle. An electrical heating element 20 is located at the distal end of the inhalation tube 10. This heating element 20 is initially powered by vehicle's electrical system, and then used to heat air drawn through the inhalation tube 10 after the vaporizer 5 has been withdrawn from the cigarette lighter socket 50. For example, the electrical heating element 20 can be a modified cigarette heating coil. The temperature of a lighter heating element is initially about 800°-1200° C., cooling to a temperature greater than 450° C. within about 10 seconds. The dimensions and thermodynamic properties of the inhalation tube 10 can be selected to result in a selected air temperature entering the plant material chamber 30 to cause vaporization of the desired medicaments from the plant material 35. For example, a temperature of about 125°-150° C. is suitable to vaporize the active constituents of tobacco.
  • The inhalation tube 10 provides a pathway for a heated air stream from the electrical heating element 20 at the distal end of the inhalation tube 10 to the plant material chamber 30 on the proximal end of the inhalation tube 10. Air flows through the inhalation tube 10 into the plant material chamber 30 and is generally insulated by the inhalation tube 10 to maintain the temperature of the air flow entering the plant material chamber 30. The inhalation tube 10 is also the stress point between the housing 40 and the heating element 20 and will absorb the forces produced by engaging the vaporizer with the cigarette lighter receptacle 50. For example, the inhalation tube 10 can be constructed of a heat-resistant material, such as medically-safe ceramic. The embodiment of the inhalation tube 10 shown in the drawings is a straight tube. It should be understood that the inhalation 10 could have any desired shape or cross-section.
  • The assembly at the distal end of the inhalation tube 10 also includes a number of components to enable the vaporizer 5 to interface with a conventional cigarette lighter socket 50, as illustrated for example in FIGS. 4 and 8-12. Returning to FIG. 8, the distal end of the inhalation tube 10 can be secured to a conventional cigarette lighter barrel 24 housing the electrical heating element 20, to minimize manufacturing costs. The barrel 24 is typically constructed as a single extruded tube which will allow air to flow freely through the heating element 20 through the barrel 24 and into the inhalation tube 10, as will be described below. For example, the distal end of the inhalation tube 10 can be coupled to the barrel 24 by a tubular inhalation guard 13, which inserts into the open end of the barrel 24 and is secured by lugs and/or a friction fit. The inhalation guard 13 also fits over the distal end of the inhalation tube 10 and is secured by lugs 14 that are bent inward to engage ribs or threads on the exterior surface of the inhalation tube 10, as shown in FIGS. 9-12.
  • A cylindrical outer housing 15 surrounds the barrel 24 and inhalation 13. The diameter of the outer housing 15 is designed to allow the distal end of the inhalation tube 10, inhalation guard 13 and barrel 24 to freely slide as an assembly within the outer housing 15 along its central axis. A spring 18 surrounds the exterior of the barrel 24 within the outer housing 15. This spring 18 is compressed between a flange at the proximal (upper) end of the inhalation guard 13 and an annular shoulder 16 in the interior surface of the outer housing 15 as the inhalation tube assembly 10, 13 and 24 advances. The corresponding annular shoulder 16 on the exterior surface of the outer housing 15 also acts as a stop to limit the extent to which the vaporizer 5 can be inserted into a conventional cigarette lighter socket 50.
  • The distal (lower) portion of the barrel 24 forms an annular skirt 25 that extends radially outward and surrounds the electrical heating element 20, as shown in FIGS. 8-12. When the vaporizer 5 is fully inserted into a lighter socket 50, bimetallic leaf springs 54 in the socket 50 grip this skirt 25 to hold the vaporizer 5 in place, as shown in FIG. 10, while the electrical heating element heats. The spring 18 is compressed during this period and exerts a biasing force that is held in check by the bimetallic leaf springs 54. However, when the electrical heating coil 20 has heated the adjacent bimetallic leaf springs 54 to a predetermined temperature, the bimetallic leaf springs 54 deform outward sufficiently to release the skirt 25 of the barrel 24. The spring 18 then causes the vaporizer to partially eject from the cigarette lighter socket 50. In other words, the spring causes the lighter to “pop” out a short distance, as illustrated in FIG. 11. This breaks the electrical contact between the rivet 22 and the electrical contact 52 in the base of the socket 50. The vaporizer 5 can then be withdrawn from the cigarette lighter socket 50, as shown in FIG. 12.
  • It should be noted that other types of bimetallic springs or heat-sensitive mechanisms could be substituted for the leaf springs 54. For example, a bimetallic disk behind the electrical heating element 20 could be employed to pop-out the vaporizer 5.
  • A convection plate 12 is mounted above the neck of the barrel 24 to serve as the point of attachment for the heating coil 20 by a metal rivet 22. The convection plate 12 also has a pattern of holes that will allow air to pass from the electrical heating element 20 into the barrel 24 and through the inhalation tube 10. The pattern and size of holes help to determine the amount of air flow and the temperature of the air stream through the inhalation tube 10.
  • The electrical heating element 20 can be constructed as a flat coil of nickel-chrome wire. For example, the electrical heating element 20 can be made of a corrosion-resistant wire made of 80% nickel and 20% chromium with a melting point of about 1400° C. Ni-chrome wire can be wound into a thin coil to a predetermined electrical resistance and when current from the vehicie's electrical system (typically about 15-20 amps) is passed through the heating element 20, it produces heat. The center of the electrical heating element 20 is attached to the metal rivet 22 and the periphery of the heating element 20 is attached to the skirt 25 at the distal end of the barrel. The rivet 22 and barrel 24 serve as the electrical contacts to establish a complete circuit between the vehicle's electrical system (i.e., battery) and the electrical heating element 20. In particular, an electrical contact 52 in the base of the socket 50 makes contact with the rivet 22 when the distal end of the vaporizer 5 is fully inserted into a cigarette lighter socket 50, as shown in FIG. 10. The other electrical contact for powering the heating coil 20 made through the metal barrel 24, which is in contact with the metal wall of the socket 50 that is grounded to the vehicle.
  • An O-ring seal 19 between the convection plate 12 and inhalation tube 10 can be used to form an air-tight seal between the electrical heating coil 20 and the inhalation tube 10. When the inhalation tube 10 is secured in the inhalation guard it is pressed onto the inhalation seal 19 which forms an air seal forcing the air stream to flow through the electrical heating coil 20 and into the inhalation tube 10 without ambient-temperature air leaking into the air stream. The inhalation seal 19 can be made from a heat-resistant, medicinally-safe, yet pliable material, such as silicone.
  • The plant material chamber 30 is attached at the proximal end of the inhalation tube 10 and is typically enclosed within the housing 40. In particular, the proximal end of the inhalation tube 10 is fitted into one side or the bottom of the plant material chamber 30 and sealed with a gasket. This gasket forms a seal between the plant material chamber 30 and the inhalation tube 10 and completes the air tight seal from the heating coil 20 to the plant material chamber 30. The plant material chamber 30 can perforated by elongated vents or openings 34 about its outer surface. These vents 34 provide non-restricted air flow from the inhalation tube 10 through of the plant material chamber 30 into the interior of the housing 40. The plant material chamber 30 can be generally cup-shaped with an opening extending through the wall of the housing 40 to accept a removable, air-permeable material holder 31 containing a quantity of plant material 35 for vaporization, as shown in FIG. 3. During use of the vaporizer 5, the open end of the plant material chamber 30 is sealed by a cover or lid 32 to maintain air flow through the inhalation tube 10 and electrical heating element 20. The heated air stream flows from the heating coil 20 through the inhalation tube 10 and into the plant material chamber 30 where vaporization of the plant material 35 occurs. This vapor stream is drawn through the openings 34 in the plant material chamber 30 into the interior of housing 40, and exits the housing 40 through the mouthpiece 44 at the proximal end of the housing 40 as the user inhales. The inhalation tube 10, plant material chamber 30, seals, lid 32, and baffles 42 can be made of heat-resistant, medicinally-safe materials, such as ceramic, to provide thermal insulation. Charcoal can be placed into the inhalation tube 10 to help alleviate any unwanted taste from the heating element 20. Optionally, the plant material chamber 30 can also include a filter to help contain the plant material 15 and filter the vapor stream.
  • The housing 40 can have an egg-shaped or ovoid cross-section, for example. The interior of the housing 40 can include a number of baffles 42 to create a more circuitous route for air flow from the plant material chamber 30 to the mouthpiece 44 and provide additional cooling and mixing of the vapor stream. The distal end of the housing 40 can be flared radially outward adjacent to the proximal end of the outer lighter housing 15 to provide a tactile device to help prevent the user from sliding fingers over the heating assembly. The housing 40 can either be made of heat-resistant, medicinally-safe materials, such as ceramic, to provide thermal insulation, or it can made of a suitable polymer capable of withstanding the temperatures involved.
  • To use the vaporizer 5, the user initially places a quantity of plant material 35 into the plant material chamber 30 of the vaporizer 5. For example, this can be done by removing the cap 32 covering the external opening to the plant material chamber 30 and then inserting an appropriate amount of the plant material 35 into the material holder 31, which is placed into the plant material chamber 30 as depicted in FIG. 3. The lid 32 is then replaced to close the external opening of the plant material chamber 30 and retain the material holder 31 and plant material 35 within the plant material chamber 30, as shown for example in FIG. 7.
  • Next, the user inserts the distal end of the inhalation tube into the cigarette lighter receptacle 50 of a vehicle to connect the electrical heating element 20 to the electrical system of the vehicle. This is shown in the perspective view provided in FIG. 4. FIG. 9 is a cross-sectional view of the distal end of the vaporizer 5 initially inserted in a cigarette lighter socket 50. FIG. 10 shows the vaporizer fully inserted to heat the electrical heating element 20. FIG. 11 is a cross-sectional view after the electrical heating element 20 has been heated and the bimetallic leaf springs 54 have released the vaporizer 5 to pop out. The user then withdraws the vaporizer 5 from the cigarette light receptacle 50 as shown in FIG. 12.
  • The user inhales through the mouthpiece 44 as shown in FIG. 5, thereby creating negative pressure to draw air through the inhalation tube 10 where it is heated by the heated element 20 and then drawn through the plant material chamber 30 to produce a mixture of heated air and vaporized plant material. This mixture of heated air and vaporized plant material is drawn out of the plant chamber 30 through its openings 34 into the interior of the housing 40. The vapor stream is directed by the baffles 42 within the housing 40 and exits via the mouthpiece 44.
  • FIGS. 13-14 show two orthogonal cross-sectional views of an embodiment of the present invention that includes a heat transfer element 26 to transfer heat from the heating coil 20 to the airstream in the inhalation tube 10. The heat transfer element 26 is in thermal contact with the heating coil 20 and conducts heat axially within the inhalation tube. This configuration can also include a number of air intake openings 11 extending through the wall of the inhalation tube 10 at a distance above the heating coil 20. Air entering through these openings 11 will be heated by the heat transfer element 26 before entering the plant material chamber 30. If desired, air flow through the heating coil 20 can be blocked by a ceramic spacer 27 to provide a more moderate and uniform air temperature entering the plant material chamber 30. This spacer 27 replaces the perforated convection plate 12 shown in the previous embodiment. Blocking air flow through the heating coil 20 might also help to reduce any unpleasant taste or smell associated with the heating coil 20.
  • The heat transfer element 26 can have any desired configuration and be made of any material having suitable thermal conductivity. For example, the heat transfer element 26 can be made of thermal pyrolytic graphite (TPG) available from Momentive Performance Materials, Inc. of Strongsville, Ohio. This material is made by chemical vapor deposition of cracked methane, followed by a combination of pressure and thermal treatment at very high temperatures, to produce a material with an in-plane thermal conductivity of more than 1500 W/m deg. K. In contrast, copper has a thermal conductivity of about 400 W/m deg. K. TPG is somewhat fragile and is usually supplied embedded in an aluminum plate.
  • The above disclosure sets forth a number of embodiments of the present invention described in detail with respect to the accompanying drawings. Those skilled in this art will appreciate that various changes, modifications, other structural arrangements, and other embodiments could be practiced under the teachings of the present invention without departing from the scope of this invention as set forth in the following claims.
