FABRIC STEAMING AND BRUSHING DEVICE Filed May 16, 1955 ll` En INVEN TOR. ALBERT G. fn/LE. BY l States A 2,849,736 Patented Sept. 2, 1958 tice FABRIC STEAMENG AND BRUSHING DEVICE Albert G. Kohle, Santa Clara, Calif.

Application May 16, 1955, Serial No. 508,702

Claims. (Cl. 15-133) This invention relates to fabric cleaning and brushing equipment and more particularly to a fabric steaming and brushing device of novel and practical construction.

An object of the invention is to provide a fabric steaming brush of practical and inexpensive construction in which a supply of dry steam is generated and applied to a fabric in a safe and efcient manner.

A further object of the invention is to provide a fabric steaming brush in which steam may be safely generated and continuousfy or intermittently applied to a fabric simultaneously with a brushing operation and under the control of an operator as the need for steam arises when the brush is in use.

Another object of the invention is to provide a steam generating system for fabric steaming devices in which the steam supply may be intermittently replenished in measured quantities as its need requires.

A further object of the invention is to provide a contained fabric steaming device in which steam is ated in a flash manner and without the use of a pressurized retaining boiler and in which the nee/l for safety re lief devices is avoided.

Other objects and advantages of the inventionwlll be in part evident to those skilled in the art and in part pointed out hereinafter in connection with the accompanying drawing wherein there is shown by way of illustration and not of limitation a preferred embodiment thereof.

In the drawing, Figure l is a side view of a preferred embodiment of my fabric steaming brush constructed in accordance with the invention..

Figure 2 is a horizontal sectional view of the two piece housing with other elements, shown in full and located therein, taken along the central plane of Figure l.

Figure 3 is a vertical sectional View taken longitudinally through the device as shown in Figure l.

Figure 4 is a substantially full-size view showing details of the brush and steam generatingunit, and

Figure 5 is a sectional view taken along line V--V of Figure 4, looking in direction of arrows.

For an understanding of what I consider to be my invention, reference is now made to the accompanying drawing wherein like numerals referred to like parts throughout the several views. As shown in Figures l to 3 of the tirant-fing, my improved steam brush in its pre-- ferred form contemplates a moulded plastic housing formed of two substantially symetrical parts that are secured together along a longitudinal center and vertical plane. This housing, designated generally by the numeral 10, has a rearwardly extending hand-grip portion 11 and a forward chamber forming portion 3 2. The chamber 12 as here shown is provided with annular ribs 13 which serve to provide an increased 'heat radiating area at this point and at the outer end of the chamber 12 there is a bristle brush 14. The brush 14 is preferably mounted at an angle with respect to the hand-grip portion 11 of the device. In this particular instance the two halves of the housing 10, designated by the numerals 15 and 16, are secured together by suitable bolts 17, 18, and 19, and extending along the under-side of the hand-grip portion 11, there is a channel into which an electric current conducting lead is disposed. This current conducting lead 2li may be of any suitable length outwardly from the hand-grip portion and at its end it will have a suitable plug-in circuit connector, not shown.

By referring to Figure 3 of the drawing it will be noted that the hand-grip portion 11 is made hollow so as to accommodate a liquid carrying tank 21. This i tank 21 is provided with a removable ller cap 22 that extends outwardly at the heel of the hand-grip portion 11 of the housing 10. At the forward end of the-tank 21 and preferably located therein, Ilshow a piston pump 23 that has a plunger operating member 24, which is exposed at the forward end of the hand-grip portion 11. This operating member 24 serves as a means for operating a plunger or piston 25' against the action of a compression spring 26. As additional parts of the piston pump 23 there is also shown a ball-type check valve 27 which operates to close a suction pipe 28 when the piston 25 is moved downwardly by the operatingmember 24. At the other side of the pump there is a ball check valve 29 which operates in a reverse manner to open when the piston 25 is forced downwardly by the operating member 24 and close when the piston 25 is moved upwardly by the compression spring 26. Extending from the ball-type check valve 29 there is a fluid discharge conduit 30 which vterminates within a steam generating chest or boiler 31, which is to be described in more detail hereinafter. The steam .generating chest 31 is here Shown as mounted in spaced relation with the walls of the chamber 12 by extending bosses 3.2, 33, and 34, land this way `the housing 11i is held to a convenient and comfortable external temperature. At the forward end of the steam generating chest 31, there is a small exhaustport 35 which communicates wtih a ysteam directing nozzle 36 that terminates centrally within the area covered by the. bristle brush 14.

As is more clearly Shown in Figures 4 and 5 of Vthe drawing the steam generating chest 31 is of metal of cup-like configuration. At its open or rearward end the steam chest 3l is closed by a metallic plug-like member 37 which serves as a support for a hot-rod electrical heating unit 38 that is formed with a depending loop so that at its outer end it will be disposed in alignment with the uid discharge conduit leading from the piston pump 23. This heating unit 38 is connected to terminal studs 39 and 40, which extend outwardly from the refractory member 37. Also supported by the refractory member 37 there i3 an encased thermostatic cut-out switch 41. As is more clearly shown in Figure 5 of the drawing, one side of the power line is connected to the switch 41 as by a conductor 42 of the current conducting lead 2t). At its other side the thermostatic cut-out switch 4l is connected to the stud itl by a jumper 43 and the other side of the power line as provided by the current conducting lead 2@ is connected to the stud 39 as by aconductor 44. In this arrangement the setting of the thermostaticcut-out switch 41 will be such that the power circuit will be opened whenever the temperature Within the steam chest 3l reaches a predetermined or dangerous temperature. In operation it will be readily seen that when the hot-rod heater unit 33 is fully energized the projection of a jet of waterthereupon as at the point A in Figure 4, the steam generating unit acting on the flash principle lwill immediately convert each jet of water impinging thereon into steam. Under these conditions the steam pressure and/or the amount of steam within the steam generating chest 31 can be closely controlled 3 as the operator need only repeat the injection of water 1nto the steam generating unit at such a rate as will produce the desired result. With a minimum of water, a dry steam will result and if wet steam is desired a more frequent operation of the pump 23 will be required. At this point it may be noted that in addition to the annular ribs 13, the chamber 12 is also provided with a pluralityl of air circulating ports 45 which further serve to maintain the housing at a comfortable temperature.

While I have, for the sake of clearness and in order to disclose the invention so that the same can be readily understood, described and illustrated a specific form and arrangement, I desire to have it understood that the invention is not limited to the specic form disclosed, but may be embodied in other ways that will -suggest themselves to persons skilled in the art. It is believed that this invention is new and therefore all such changes as come within the scope of the appended claims are to be considered as part of this invention.
