IS7-599.2)

2 Y invention will become apparent from" the ensuing description of, an embodiment thereof, in

companying drawings; in which?. l Fig. 1 is an axial cross sectional view of a .combined high-low and` pilot burner valve cons tructed` in accordance with the present invention, the valve being shown in its high position;V Fig. 2 is an end elevational view of .the =valve shown in Fig. 1, but in its off position;y Fig-3 is a fragmentary axial crossfsectional View similar to Fig'. l, illustrating -theyalvelplug in its loW-position;. Fig. 4 is aV vertical' cross sectional view taken alongthe broken line-,4 4 of 3,- illustrating the valve in its oif position; j l VFigs. 5 and 6 are views similar to Fig.. 4, illustrating the valve inr its low vand high positions, respectively;V and- Fig. 7 is a fragmentary developed view ofthe adjoining surfacesof the rotatablevalve plug and theplug receivingA chamber in 'the valve body, illustrating the valve substantially at its high position.v vn V f' Referring now to the drawings and first to Figs. 1 and 2, it may be noted that the valveas a Whole is kindicated by the reference character Ill. It' includes a valve body I2 land amovable control element in the form of a rotatable valve plug i4.. vThe valve plug has an outer tapered surface I6 at one end adapted to be received" in a tapered valve receiving chamberrlv 4formed in thevalvebody.. l

Gas is supplied to the' valvethrough aniinet passageway 20 illustratedas vbeinglo'cated at'the lower side of the valve 'and provided withfex? ternal threads 22 by. means of which it A cannbe readily secured to a gas supply manifold, not shown. A `v Q1 The valve of the present invention, as already indicated, is a combined high-low and pilot. valve especially designed for use with broiler burners'. Gas is suppliedto the broiler burner through an outlet passageway '24 illustrated as being located Vin weerstation,

the course of which reference is had to the` a"c Gas is supplied to the pilot burner associated with the broiler burner through a tting 30, which may contain an orifice determining the rate of flow to the pilot burner and which is threaded into an internally threaded boss 32 in the valve body, the inner end of which communicates with an outlet. chamber 3.4. atlthe inner end of the plug receiving chamber" I8; and, in elect', forming an extension of the latter.

In accordance with one of the features of the, present invention, gas is supplied to the pilot burner through an axial passageway 36 formedV- in the valve plug I4. The arrangement is such, as will be brought out shortly; that gas is supiplied at substantially a constant rate and' f'ull` pressure to the pilot burner in the various operative positions oi the valve and lz'iothib'efore'A and' after gas is supplied to the broiler burner. The arrangement is such, therefore, as to insure safe operation. l .Gas is suppliedito, the axial passageway 36- in the valve plug through a pair of' angularly displaced' inlet passageways` in the valveplug, one o f which may be somewhatv smaller than the other. The larger of the two plug inletpassageways,which is indicated by the reference characteri40`, isin effect a/high inlet and the smaller one,jindicatedl by thereference character 42, is a low inlet; Both of these inlets lead from the outside of thevalve plug tothe axial passageway ,352., Asa result, gasis supplied tothe pilot burner when either of the inletlpassageways is in registration with the gas inlet passageway in the valve body. Furthermore, the angular spacing of` the two isY such that gas isV continuously supplied to the axial passageway'36' asthevalve` plug 'is4 moved from a position substantially aligning one' ofthe inlet passageways in the valve plug with passageway 20 to a position aligning the other therewith.

In the highvposition of the` valve, gas is supplied, also to,A the broiler'burner through a radially' disposed high outletV passageway 44 which is` diametrically opposite the high inlet passageway,` 40, as clearly apparent, particularly, from Figs.,1'and'6. The arrangement isthus suchthat passageways 20; 28, 4D'and'44 can be'drilled in one operation. In the low position of the valve, gas is suppliedto thepilot burner through the axial passageway 36' and the low inlet. passageway 42. At the same time, gas is supplied at alow and` adj ustable rate through van auxiliary rvalve, unit 46, providing avcontrollableeffective,area passageway and locatedbetweenthe axial passageway 36`and allow outlet passageway 48 leading from the auxil'iaryvalve. unit lto thesurf'ace of the valve, plug at" a point where it can be brought into registry withpassageway 2B. The passageway 48 includes an axially inclined portionAA and a generally radial portion 48B which is somewhat smaller thanthe portion 28` ofthe burner outlet passageway but which is` so disposed axially of the valve plugas to register with the passageway 28 in the low position ofA the valve,` as best indicated. in Fig, 3'.

The construction is such, in accordance with anothery feature of the-present invention, that' gas isfsupplied rst to the pilot burner when the-valve is turned from its off toward its on position and that the gas supply to the pilot burner is cut oli lastasthevalve plug is moved in the opposite direction.- 'I-his advantageous result is obtained very simplyin accordance with the present invention by so locating the lowinletpassageway 42 relative to the inlet passageway 20 that they register before the plug outlet passageway 48 registers with the main -burner outlet passageway portion 28.

The extent to which the plug has to be rotated to move it to its full on position is reduced by spacing,v passageway 48B axiallyvfrom passageway 44. This spacing reduces the angular` distance between the high and low positions but does not reduce the plug sealing surface between the two passageways.

The auxiliary valve unit 46, as indicated, is adjustable to regulate the quantity of gas supplied tothe. burner'in'thelow position of the valve. It

1 maytake various forms and that illustrated includes features of` construction disclosed and cl'aimedlinLthe` copending applications of Philip S. Harpenerial No. 576,673, led February 7, 1945, nowV Patent No. 2,590,535, issued March 25, 1952, and of Vincent C. vPeterson, Serial No. 600,795, fll'ed June 2l, 1945, now. Patent'No.v 25590569, issued-March 25, 1952, both of which are assigned to the assignee'ofthis application.

The auxiliary valve unit 46 comprises an adjustable member 50' rotatable to regulate the effective area ofi an oricedelned by the apertures 52 and 54, the former ofwhich'. provides communication between an axial passageway 56 in the rotatable member (which communicates with plug passageway 36) andthe exterior ofthe rotatable member and` the latter of which is adapted to registermoreor less with the former and toprovide communication' therefrom to a peripheral passageway 5S communicating. with the-plug passageway 48` 'lhe'rotatable` member 50 is mounted inl an insert 60 xedly's'ecured within the valve plug in-a passageway 62A communicating with the ax-ialpassageway- 36and witha passageway 64' in the valve stem 66 which may be, as illustrated, a two-part stem including a rst part 68 secured to-andp-referably `an integral part ofA` the valve plug and a second part 'IU movable axially relative to the rstpart for'thepurpose of unlocking the valvefplug. Stem part 'l0 has a flat side 'Il for receiving a valve` handle, not shown.

The rotatable valve member 50 is accessible through the stem for adjustment. Ithas a slot 12 at its outer end so that it can readily be rotated, as by a screw driver insertable into the slot through passageway 64 in valve stem part 68 through the passageways- I4 and 16 in the valve stem part'lll.. v

Leakage of gas through the auxiliary valveis prevented by a seal' comprising a groove'lv in the rotatable. valve member 50 and an annular depressed portion ofr the. insert 60 whichextends into the groove 'I3'.

It should be*y noted, particularly, that in the low position the gas flows to the axial passageway 36- inthe valve plug andthence through the stem adjustment valve 46 and passageway 48 into the burner outlet passageway 28, 24. The ow of gas. in this manner eliminates the necessityy of providing any auxiliary inlets inthe valve body with the result. thatall they passageways in the valve body, except for the pilot burner outlet passageway and portion 28 of the main burner outlet passageway are inthe same radial plane. This construction enables a short plug to be used because the plug length. need be no greater than needed for the main burner outlet passageway 28 and the inlet passageway.

The plug is held in place by a spring. 82, one endfofwhich.abutsxagainst a shoulder 84'- formed at the end of the tapered portion offtheval've plug. 'Ihe other end of the spring vexerts a yforce against an end cap 86 secured tothe valve by a pair ofscrews 81, see Fig. 2p Actually, this other `end of the'spring bears against a locking andindicating washer 88 forming part of aV positioning and indicating means including also a lockingplate 90 and a driving plate 92 secured tothe inner end of valve stem portion 10 and splined to the valve stem portion 68. The valve is locked in its off position but can be unlocked by pushing the outer valve stemportion 10 inwardly to move washer 88. The'particular construction of the valvestem and the positioning stem could be used if locking in off position were not desired.

1` It is believed that the operation of the valve willbe `apparent from the foregoing description, Vbut it will be reviewed briefly. Assuming the rgas valve to be installed upon a gas stove for the purpose of supplying gas to a broiler burner and to` a pilot burner associated therewith, then with the valve in its off position, as indicated in.Figs.f2 and 4, no gas is supplied to either of the burners. To move the valve to an operative position the valve is turned in a counterclockwise direction, as viewed from the stem end and infFigs. 4, 5` and 6. As it is turned, the low inlet passageway 42 first communicates with the inlet passageway 20 with the result that gas is supplied to the pilot burner. Then upon continued rotation in a counterclockwise direction the low outlet passageway 48 registers with the burner outlet passageway 28, as shown in Fig. 5. In this position gas iiows at a low and preadjusted rate throughl the low inlet passageway 42, axial passageway 36, the axial passageway 56 in the auxiliaryvalve unit 46, the more or less aligned radial openings 52 and 54 kin the rotatable and fixed portions of the auxiliary valve` unit, and passageway 48. At the same time gas is con- .tinued to be supplied to the pilot burner at a constant rate. i

To supply a high quantity of gas to the burner the valve plug is rotated further in a counterclockwise direction to align the high inlet pas` vsageway 40 with the inlet passageway 28. During this movement, gas continues to be suppliedto ther pilot burner because the inlet passageway 40 starts to register with the inlet passageway 20 in the valve body before inlet passageway `42 vmoves out of registry therewith. In the high positionthe gas ows to the burner outlet pas-v sageway 28 directly through the inlet and outlet ,passages 40 and 44 in the valve plug, both of which open tothe axial passageway 36. The 4developed view of Fig. 7 illustrates the valve substantiallyat itsY high position. Y s

In the movement of the valve from its high kto its off position, the passageway 40 is moved .out of registry with the passageway 20 but before this occurs the passageway 42 registers with passageway 20 so that, as before, gas continues to bel supplied to the pilot burner in the resulting low position of the valve. From the `low position, v.the valve plug is turned to the off position and, as described earlier, the location of passageways 42and-48 is such that gaszis supplied .tothe 6 axial passageway 86 and thus to the pilotburner after passageway 48 has 'moved out of registry with the burner outlet passageway28.. i From the foregoing detailed description ofthe present invention it maybenoted that it has` a number of-advantages.- All of the ports open in the plane of the main inlet and outlet passageways with the result vthat the plugis'not lengthened by reason of the addition of the stem adjustment means. Furthermore, no slot mill-l ing is required on the exteriorsurface ofthe valve'plug. Also, the location of the portion 48B of the low outlet passageway oiiv center with respect to the main outlet passageway 44 in the valve plug reduces'the extent to which thevalve plug is to be rotated' to move it to its high Vposition. The valve body construction is symmetrie cal and no auxiliarydrilling in it is required. No slot with its reduction of bearing surfacev in the plug is required and parts of existing valve structures can be used to .provide greater standardization. e n
