Charles F; Goede, New Philadelphia, Ohio, as

signor to Joy-Manufacturing Gompany; acorporation of Pennsylvania Application October. 24, 1947,, Serial No. venous 13'Cl'aims. 1.

My. invention relates, to. adjustable. blade fans; and. more particularly to adjustable bladev fans or" the vane axialtype.v

It is customary in thedesigning of adjustable blade fans to choose a size of. motor adequate for the drive .at the maximum pitch anglewhich it is intended they shallhave. It ,hasbeen, found in practice, however, that. the users of these fans are not. always satisfied to employ them for the moving. of the volume of. air. for which they were designed, andv will readjust. the. fan. blades. to such angles that the motor. may be seriously overloaded. It would. therefore be,v highly ad's vantageous if suitable meanscouldbe provided; which: would prevent. adjustment. of. the, fan blades to positions which would, require, more power than, their associated; motors. were designed toprovide espeoially if suchadjustment limiting meanscouldbe made such. as to be inaccessible to. any tampering without. substan-. tial trouble being involved; and. especially also if such means could be of'such a nature that it might be incorporated in whole series of blades and by more variation in finishingsteps. take care of differential capacities.

It. is an object of my inventionto provide an. improved adjustable blade fan. It is another object of. my invention to provide. animproved adjustable blade fan of.v the vane axial type. It isa further object of my invention to provide an adjustable blade fan having improved. blade supporting androtating means. It, is still another object of jmy invention to provide an.improved adjustable blade fan having incorporated therein means. for precluding improvident adjustmentoi the pitch angle of the blades in such a manner as to result in an overloading of the fan driving motor. It is yet a further object of my invention to provide an improved adjustable blade fan having incorporated therein improved, means for controlling the maximum pitch'angle ofthe blades'and adapted'to permita: single blade blank to be employed in the production of fans-of'substantially diiferent output, merely by variation in the finishingoperations: It-is still another object of my invention to'provide an improved blade angleadjustment limiting means-which whilewholly eifective'shall be. out of harms way, and not subject toalteration Without deliberate disassembly of parts so'that such. adjustment limiting-meanscan be reached,

Other objects and'advant'agesof the invention will, however, hereinafter. more fully appear.

ReferringtoLthe drawings and first to Figs. 1'

and-2; it will be observed. that a fan and motor casing C'is'made up of a deflector ring I, desirably in the form of? an aluminum spinning, a.

ring 2 forming a fan housing, and a ring or outer. casing. 3having stationary vanes. 4 permanently:secured*thereto-and connectedat their inner edges'with. an inner ring member 5'. to

which the vanes are also. secured'andwhiohin turn is fixedly secured to and supports amotor positioning-plate 6;"having'an opening 7. therethrough. Armotor 8tofahorsepower suited to the designed? air displacement of the fan, is provided with a' motor shaft .iandjis securedas by studs l6 and nuts "I l-tothe-supporting plate 6, being -positioned with respect'to' said"- plate; transversely; bymeanspofa, surface of rotation l2:on the motor casingcooperating with an internal surface of rotation loformedonthe-platefi; and; longitudi nally; by means of aplanetransverse surface 3* cooperating-with an opposite" plane surface 11 on the motor positioning plate 6. The motor shaft 9 carries a blade carrying rotor l6, desirably of light metal such as aluminum, having the huh I! thereof provided with a steel bushing or insert i8 secured by appropriate holding means IE to the shaft 9. The rotor includes a web portion to which a rim portion 2| is integrally secured. The rim portion is provided with a peripheral surface 22, which corresponds to a portion of a spherical surface. The rim portion 2| has at various equally-spaced positions about it thickened portions 23 in which sockets for the reception of the hub and shaft portions of the fan blades are formed. Associated with the rotor H3 at each of the portions 23 is a fan blade 25 consisting of an appropriately formed lade portion 28, desirably made of aluminum or other light material, a tapering hub portion 21, and a pivot element 28, said tapering hub portion being in the form of a solid of revolution of which the axis lies in the same line with the axis of the pivot element 28 and said pivot element comprising a pair of collar or shoulder portions 29 and 39 connected by a reduced portion 3 i said collar portions appropriately peripherally formed, as by knurling, so that when cast in position in the fan blade 25 they will resist tendencies to loosen their connection with the blade, the spool-like construction preventing the blade from pulling axially away from the pivot element 28 and the knurling, or the like, preventing relative rotation between element and blade. The pivot element 28 has a cylindrical portion 33 which is adapted to be rotatably received within a tubular insert or sleeve 34, desirably made of steel and connected securely to the rotor rim as by the casting of the metal of the rotor around it, one such bearing sleeve in each of the thickened portions 23. These sleeve portions may be knurled on end collar portions 35 so as to hold them non-rotatively relative to the rotor. The inner ends of the blades are formed with surfaces 31 which are struck on arcs of radii only slightly exceeding the radius of the spherical surface 22. The hub portions 2! have peripheral surfaces which are, in the main, surfaces of revolution, and the portions 23 have sockets which correspond closely to the peripheral contour of the hub portions 21. Since each hub portion and associated pivot element has a maximum diametric dimension in each plane to which their axes are perpendicular at least as great as in any parallel planes nearer the inner end of said pivot element, the blades are positionable in fully assembled relation with the rotor by movement axially of the tapering sockets in the rotor. With the portions of the hub portions 27 within which the pivot elements 23 are fixed inside the sockets 40 there is not only a very compact construction, but one in which the possibility of breaking of the blades loose from the pivots is much reduced. Blade angle fixing screws 4| extend through threaded openings 42 formed in the material of the rotor surrounding the socket member 34 and through the wall of this socket member. The wall of the socket 43 is provided with an arcuate recess 43, and, as originally cast or molded, the hub portions 2'! have projecting portions 44 which may be of such arcuate dimension as to occupy any desired portion of the arcuate dimension of the recesses 43 and as originally cast will usually have such angular extent as, if inserted in said arcuate recesses, to limit the potential turn of the blades to not more than the minimum useful amount. By appropriately milling away the material of the projections 44, these projections may be caused to limit the angular adjustment of the fan blades about the axes of the pivots 33 to any desired extent. For example, if a small angle of adjustment is desired, the width arcuately of the portions 44 may be a relatively large portion of the arcuate extent of the recesses 43. If a relatively large range of angular adjustment of the blade is desired, the width arcuately of the portions 44 may be substantially reduced, and the difference in the arcuate extent of these portions and of the recesses in which they are received will definitely determine the range of angular adjustment of the blades.

The projections will be so located with respect to the blades, or the recesses 43 will be so located with respect to the sockets-or there may be such location both of the projecting portions with respect to the blade and of the recesses with respect to the socket-as to determine the desired angular relation of the parts in both minimum and maximum pitch angle position.

The outer surface of the hub 21 alongside the blade may be marked with graduations to cooperate with an index line on the peripheral surface of the rotor to indicate the actual angular relation of the blades to the rotor. For example, Fig. 8 shows a fan blade positioned in minimum pitch angle position; Fig. '7 the maximum angular position possible between the parts with the construction shown; and Fig. 4 shows an intermediate position of adjustment.

It will be noted that the rotor is fitted with a nose 45 which may be of spun aluminum, and

suitably rounded or domed to direct or guide the air flow and this nose may be held in position by flexible spring latch elements 46 secured at radially extending portions 41 thereof to the web 20 of the fan rotor.

It will be noted moreover that sole reliance is not placed on the angle fixing screws 4| to hold the fan blades in adjusted position, and that lock washers 43 and lock nuts 49 are arranged on the threaded extremities 50 of the elements 28 and, acting against the end 5| of the sleeve 34, draw the collar 30 tightly against the upper end of the sleeve 34.

Suitable fixtures may be used for setting the fan blades and when one blade is set at the desired angle, and the screw 4! and the nut 49 are tightened, a ring having studs spaced equally with the blade spacing may be fixed coaxially with the fan rotor with one of its studs in contact with the fixed (set) blade. The other blades may then be moved to like contact with other studs (their respective ones) and fixed by the screw and by the nut, associated with them, and thus like settings for all the blades will be effected.

From the foregoing description it will be obvious that I have provided an improved, simple and effective blade angle control and a cor respondingly improved fan rotor construction. The lugs may all be made the same size on original blade castings of a given size, and machined (milled) to proper angular dimension. Then with the recess cast in the socket wall in the rotor-so that it constitutes an enlargement of the bore or socket at one side of the latter, a very simple method of producing these recesses is provided, recesses with end walls extending radially from the axis of the socket. reason of the housed in location of the limit means an improved result in security against accidental destruction of these means is provided. The

sameblade; blanks, so;- to speak; can: besmadeiupi for. use; in. fans, of different; volume; and, pressure: characteristics; and; each, fan. which the; lug; width, or; more; strictly the, angular relation; of, the lug edges to the associated. blade, isthe same for. all blades will; be adapted not. only for like normal settings; but: for-like extreme settings. Obviously by forming. the. taper. of the hub 21 with an arcuategeneratrix, the selection.ofiamillingcutter of corresponding-radius willlmakevery, easy the cutting of: the projection 41k to :anysdesiredv width. The resultant form of the principal surface of the hub willbe asurface of-revolution having its generatrix. arcuate and with itsicon-i cavity facingv away from the axisrof the surface. And: it may be noted: that the lug projecting from the surface of the hubportionhasthesurefaces at its opposite sides in planesintersecting along the axis of. the hub. (see Fig; 4):. It will. further be notedthat the radial sockets inthe rim portion it have circular mouths opening through the outer periphery iofiithe rim and have sidewalls principally in the form of ausurface of revolution which tapers in the direction ofthe-- center of the rotor'element. The fanlblad'esvalso have hub portions providcd witha tapering; sidewall principally: in the form of a SuDfaC8Of l eV-Or lution mating with the firstmentioned-i surfaceof revolution, The means for limiting: turning of the hub portions in: the sockets includes, foreach blade and sock-ct a reoessin the tapering socket wall and a projection fromathemating wall, said recesses having a radiallyouterwall nearer the axis of said surfaces-- of revolution than the length of the radius ofsaidcircularmouths and: said projections each having.- an outer wall adjacent, when said bla'des are-assembled on said rotor element, the-rad'ial outer wall of the recess and said walls having the elements thereof mutually parallel and. parallel. to the axis of said surface ofrevo-lution. Were-it de-- sired to recess the peripheralwall. f'thehubportion 2'! and extend. into the recessua projection. of predetermined angular width,. tome-verse the, relative positions, of, the limit, means; i this, would. be within the broadest aspect of; my; invention. Also, if. desired, in lieu of the; Single stop lug, spaced lugs in, separate recesses orxin. anv B1011." gated recess. may be. employed. fllhe stop, 150,; may be, formed, on, other portions of he; pivot structure for the blades such as between, the pivot element and itscbearing,

While there, is in this application specifically described one form which the. invention "may assume in. practice, it will be understoodthat this form of the same is shown for purposes of ill'ustration and that the invention maybe modified and embodied in various other forms without d'e parting from its spirit or the scope of' the appended claims.
