MUFFLER Filed May 20, 1945 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 ail- S M I VENTOR. BY arms Iadcher ATTOR N EY Patented Oct. 3, 1944 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 11 Claims.

This invention relates to mufflers or silencers for use in connection with the elimination of the noise caused by the sudden flow of gases, for example, from the exhaust manifold of an internal combustion engine.

It is an object of this invention to produce a mufiler with a resonance device inside the main chamber, which device takes part of the gas entering the muiiler and then sends this part back again to flow through the bafile with the rest of the gas. In some fprms the resonance device has a fixed period as determined by its length, in other forms the length is continuously adjustable and in still another form the length can be varied in definite amounts. The resonance device acts to reduce the effect of the periodicity of the impulses received from the gases emitted as a result of the successive explosions in the engines cylinders.

Another object of the invention is the method of production of the spiral member. This memher is a troublesome and expensive one to make ordinarily but with my method it can be economically produced. It requires nothing more than a plurality of split washers which are joined end to end at the split after first having been bent longitudinally to separate the edges at the split. The method lends itself particularly to the production of a spiral in which the distance between the successive turns is varied as this is simply accomplished by separating the split edges mor and less for the successive washers. In the preferred form the distance between successive turns increases toward the outlet end of the muffler, in which case the split edges of successive washers are successively increased in ofiset.

Other objects and advantages will become apparent upon further study of the description and drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a sectional plan of the mufiler with a fixed length resonance chamber, the spiral member being shown in elevation.

Fig. 2 is an elevation of a portion of a spiral member formed of joined split Washers.

Fig. 3 is a section taken along the line 33 of Fig. 2.

Fig. 4 is a section taken along the line 44 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 5 is a sectional plan of a muffler with a continuously adjustable resonance chamber, the spiral being shown only where cut.

Fig. 6 is a partial sectional plan of a mufller with a resonance chamber adjustable to predetermined lengths, the spiral being shown only where cut.

Fig. 7 is a section of Fig. 5 taken along the line 1l, and

Fig. 8 is a partial sectional plan of a mufiler wherein the housing is grooved to receive the outer periphery of the spiral member.

The muffler of Figs. 1 and 4 is provided with a casing or housing 9 formed of two halves crimped together at flanges l0. Extending centrally through housing 9 and end pieces II and I 2 is a resonance tube I3. End pieces H and [2 are spot welded at their inner edges to tube I 4 and at their outer edges to casing 9. Supported between tube I 3 and housing 9 is a spiral member [4. Member I4 is welded in several places at each turn to tube l 3. The pitch of the spiral is reversed at points [5 and I6 and increases toward end piece I2. Increasing the pitch of the spiral allows the gas to expand more rapidly thereby reducing its velocity. In a broad sense it can be said that the spiral has a variable pitch which does not necessarily increase toward the outlet, although this is the preferred form. For example, the increase could be toward the inlet end of the chamber.

Tube [3 is provided with openings ll near the inlet end of chamber l9 and with openings 18 near the outlet end of said chamber. Inside of tube 13 is a diaphragm 20. 1

In operation, gas from the successive explo sions of the engine is forced into tube l3 at the inlet end. Part of the gas leaves the tube through openings l1 and continues through spiral member 14 entering tube 13 again at openings [8 and finally being discharged from the open end of the tube. The other part of the gas received at the inlet end of tube l3 continues along the tube until it strikes diaphragm 20. It is reflected back therefrom and then leaves the tube at openings I! from whence it goes along with the rest of the gas about spiral member [4. The second part of the gas is thus out of phase with the first part of the gas tending to break up any resonance that might develop in the mufller due to the periodicity of the successive quantities of gas received at the successive explosions in the cylinders of the engine. It is well known in the wave theory of propagation that out or phase waves tend to neutralize each other. In making the muflier, the length in the resonance tube I3 between its inlet and diaphragm 20 is determined for the particular engine type with which it is to be used. As will be seen later on, this invention includes types of resonance tubes in which said distance is not fixed as with the form described above, but is adjustable.

In one method of manufacturing the spiral member, a series of split washers are used. In Figs. 3 and 4, for example, each turn 2! of the spiral member is a split washer, the part of a turn extended over by a washer being substantially 360 degrees less the amount of overlap 22. Each washer is bent longitudinally or axially, so that the edges at the split are separated longitudinally or axially. One edge at the split of the previous washer is then set to overlap the opposite edge of the next succeeding washer as shown at 22. The overlapped edges are then welded by spot welding or otherwise fastened together. In this manner, the complete spiral member is formed. To increase the space between turns as the outlet end of the mufller is approached, the split edges of the washers are pulled more widely apart. This is an economical method of producing the spiral, and further the overlapped edges increase the friction of the flow of the gas through the mufller.

The mufiler of Fig. 5 is similar to that of Fig. 1 except that the length of the gas column in the resonance tube 23 can be continuously varied. As before the housing or casing 9 contains a spiral member [4 wrapped around a central cylindrical member to which it is welded, in this case said member being resonance tube 23. The outer edge of spiral member l4 contacts the inside of housing 9. Openings I! are provided in tube 23 near the inlet end of chamber 19 and other openings 68 near the outlet end of said chamber. Tube 23 extends through end piece H at the inlet end and through end piece 12 at the outlet end. Near the outlet end of said tube is fastened by spot welding a spider 24 extending transversely across the tube. Spider 24 provides a bearing 25 for screw rod 26. Collars 33 fixed to rod 26 prevent axial movement thereof. Threadedly mounted on screw rod 26 is a diaphragm or obstruction 2'! which is slidably mounted in tube 23. Obstruction 2? prevents the flow of gas by it in tube 23. The lower end of screw rod 25 is provided with a head 28 which is outside of the muffler. In the use of the muiiler of 5, resonance with the impulses received from the engine can be avoided by adjusting the location of obstruction 27 in tube 23. This changes the natural period of vibration of the gas in the mufiier. Obstruction 21 can be set in a continuously varied position in tube 23. In this respect the muflier of Fig. 5 is different from the mufller of Fig. 6. In the latter mufiier, obstruction 29 can be set only at predetermined locations in tube 30. For most conditions this is a sufficiently flexible adjustment to overcome resonance. Tube 3!) i provided with sets of screw holes 3| in spaced positions along its length. Obstruction 29 has threaded holes which can be set in register with screw holes 3|, and when so set, screws 32 can be inserted to hold the obstruction in place in tube 3%. The clot and dash lines show how obstruction 29 could be set in another position. Gas escapes through unocculpied screw holes 3i increasing turbulence thereby in spiral member M.

The :casing 35 of Fig. 8 is formed with a spiral groove 34 into which the outer edge of spiral member i l fits. This gives said member especial rigidity.
