1s claims. (cl. 12s-201) This invention relates to` a smoking. device and more particularlyV to a device for smoking requiring no combustion.

There are many places where smoking is not permitted because of the re hazard present as around explosives or because conditions forbid the showing of a light as at night in time of lwar.

It is an object of this invention to provide a smoking device simulating a cigarette and which will furnish smoke Without employingcombustion.

`It is `another object to provide a capsulehaving captively held therein the aroma and flavor volatiles of tobacco.

Theseyand other objects of this invention. will become `apparent upon reading the following specification in connection. with the accompanying drawing in which;

Referring to the drawing, there is shown a tubular Patented Nov. 18, 195,8

mouth piece 10 having a cylindrical portion 10X, made of metal, plastic or other suitable material and provided with a tubular extension 11 of lesser cylindrical diameter, which is integral with said cylindrical portion of said mouth piece 10.

A front tubular cylindrical element 12 of metal, plastic or' other suitable material is provided with suitable bore and with a lip 15 adapted to malte with. and frictionally seize theV tubular extension 1p14 of the mouth piece. The bore of the tubular extension 11 and of the cylindrical portion of mouth piece 1 0 is also `of suitable size and equal to the bore of elementlZ.

A cylindrical capsule 14 of metal or plastic and having a diameter to` t snugly into the bore of elements 12, 11" and 10X, is provided with opposedends having dished in thin wall sections 14X.`

The capsule may be prepared from two co-acting plastic over-lapped half-sections, one of. which has. alip similar torelement 13 and. the other hal`fsection being provided with a projection similar to element 11, the over-lapped portions being sealed to provide a hermetically sealed capsule.

Alternatively the capsule 14. may be provided with opposed heat` sealed orV crimped ends` to provide a her- Inetically sealed tube. Where crimped end capsules are use'cltheymay be prepared fromcontinuous tubing, plastic or metal such as aluminum.

As shown in Fig. 7 the front end,` of` the front tubular element 12 is provided with a flanged front pierceipin lhaving a tubular flange 16;and a tubular pin 17'integral therewith. The pin.1,7.is provided with a beveledpoint 1.8.having a piercing edge 1l9. The element 12 is provided with. an inner integral circular ridge 20 against which flange 16 rests and beyond which pin 15l extends.

The pierce pin. l5 is. made of` suitable metal and immoveably secured to` element 12 in a suitable channel 12X providedrtherefor.`

The bore .in the cylindrical portion 16Xl of the mouthpiece 10 is provided with atirst inwardly disposed circular ridge 21 forming alirst set-back bore of smaller dimension and with a second inwardly disposed circular ridge 22 forming a second setback bore leading to the mouth piece bite end23 (Figs. 1 to 4). l

A rear pierce pin 24 having a tubular llange 25 of suitable diameter is immoveably secured in thesecond bore against ridge 22 (Fig. 8). Pierce pin 24 is made of suitable metal and is provided with a tubular cutting pint2`6 integral with the ilange 25 and having a beveled or sl-oped front 27 with a cutting edgev 28. Pin 24 protrudes or eX- tends beyond ridge 21 of mouth piece 10.

The rear opening of the tubular bore of rear pierce pin 24may be provided with a check valve formed preferably by a flap 29 of suitable materialsuch as plastic sheeting (Fig. 8 and 9). The check valve is an optional element.

The flap 29 is xedly secured to the flange 25 over the bore therein by conventional means such as adhesive or heat sealing adhesive. This tlap functions as a checkvalve permitting flow` of gas through the bore of` pierce pin 24 in but one direction, that is toward the bite-end l231 of the mouth piece 1t).

As shownin Figs. 4 and 8 the mouthpiece l0 may be provided with a vent hole 30, placed behind the rear pin 24 `or by a vent hole 31 (Fig. 1l) placed in front of the rear pin 24. The use of `a vent hole 30 or 31 is optional since the smoking device will function well without any supplemental'admixture of air (Fig. 14).

The capsule 14 is provided with cigarette smoke in a concentrated state or it may be provided with filler material such as cotton or mineral matter in which thellavor` and taste components of tobacco 'are absorbed.` Thus the =cotton may be saturated with nicotine, cigarette tar, etc. as desired.

Turning to-Figs. to 13, there is shown a device having'a modified front pierce pin 32 and a modified rear pierce pin 33.

vThe modified front pierce pin 32 is provided with a flange skirt having at least one aperture or a plurality of apertures 34, preferably three and wherein the pierce pin thereof is fluted, having preferably fo-ur flutes 35 (Fig. 12).

The rear modified pierce pin 33 is provided with 3 outlet ports 36 (Fig. 13) over which the flap 29 extends thereby functioning as a check valve for all outlet ports 36. A single outlet port may be used in lieu of the three outlet ports 36 if desired. The rear modified pierce pin 33 is also provided with a fluted pierce pin having preferably four fluted grooves.

Also as shown in Fig. 1l, the lip 13X may be provided with screw threads and the co-acting mating tubular exv tension 11X may be provided with co-acting screw threads.

There may be occasions when the smoker may wishto smoke a lighted cigarette as when not in a no smoking area. In such event, the smoking device of this invention is modified as shown in Figs. 15 and 16. In this modification the front cylindrical element 12 is provided with a suitable tubular extension 37 having a bore adapted to receive a cigarette. In this modification the flange 16 of pin 17 (Fig. 15) or the flange of pierce pin 32 (Fig. 16) is provided with a diameter equal to that of a cigarette.

Fig. 17 shows a modification of Fig. 11 wherein the vent 31 is replaced by an interior V-shaped groove 38 located in both the front element 12 and the mouth piece 10 in the inner surface of the respective bores therein and below the capsule 14. This groove 38 extends beyond the capsule 14 secured within elements 10 and 12, at both ends and beneath the front and the rear pierce pins, hence it functions as a vent and permits a suitable amount of the air sucked in through the front pierce pin 32, to by-pass the capsule before passing through the rear pierce pin 33.

The purpose of this invention is to provide a fireless, lightless smoke. Other equivalent modifications will occur to those .skilled in the art after reading this disclosure but all these equivalent modifications are intended to be covered by the scope of the claims herein.
