Application January 23, 1956, Serial No. 560,606

3 Claims. (Cl. 174-51) My invention relates generally to connectors for connecting an electrical conduit to a housing wall, and more particularly to an improved connector of the flanged hub type.

In electrical wiring, the practice of using a flanged hub type connector for connecting electrical conduits to housings such as switch boxes, connection boxes, electrical cabinets and the like, is well known. The conduit is threaded into the hub end of the connector and the connector flange is then bolted to the housing wall. Such a connection is easy to perform and inexpensive.

Difiiculties arise, however, when it is desired to make the connection moisture-proof. If, in accordance with usual practice, a gasket approximately the same shape as the flange is placed between the face of the flange and the housing wall, the connection will leak moisture around the bolt holes. If, to prevent this, gaskets are placed around the ends of the bolts, continuity of the electrical I ground circuit between the conduit and the housing is interrupted because the gaskets act as insulators.

Efforts have been made to avoid these difficulties by providing outward extrusions around the openings in the housing wall so that upon tightening of the connector bolts, a seal is formed between the flange face and the extrusions which minimizes moisture leakage and still maintains the electrical ground circuit. This process is costly and not entirely satisfactory.

Accordingly, it is a major object of my invention to provide an improved flanged hub type connector with means for forming a moisture-proof connection and still maintaining continuity of the electrical ground circuit. It is another object of my invention to provide means for forming such a connection which obviate the necessity of providing extrusions around openings in the housing wall.

It is a further object of my invention to provide means for forming such a connection which may be incorporated into a standard flanged hub type connector with a minimum of modifications.

It is still another object of my invention to provide means for making such a connection which are easier to use and less expensive than previous methods.

These and other objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent from the following detailed description thereof, and from an inspection of the accompanying drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a housing with one embodiment of my invention attached to the top thereof;

Figure 2 is a partially sectioned side view of a preferred embodiment of my invention shown connecting an electrical conduit to a housing wall;

Figure 3 is an enlarged, perspective view of the bolt gasket shown in Figure 2; and

Figure 4 is an enlarged, perspective view of the scarfing washer shown in Figure 2.

Referring now to the drawings, and particularly to Figure 2 thereof, the numeral 10 indicates generally a flanged hub type connector having a hub 11 with a threaded bore 12 for receiving an electrical conduit 13. An outwardly extending flange 14'is adjoined to one end of the hub 11 and has bolt holes 15 near its outer circumference for securing the connector to a housing wall 16. The threads in the bore 12 have an inwardly convergent taper to provide a moisture-proof, ground circuit maintaining connection between the hub 11 and the conduit 13. The bolt holes 15 have axes parallel to the axis of the bore 12 and a convergently tapered conical counterbore 17 at the end adjacent the hub.

To secure the connector 10 to the housing wall 16, bolts 18 are provided which fit through the bolt holes 15, and suitable openings in the housing wall 16 and are thereafter engaged by nuts 19. Thread tightening thenuts 19 onto the bolts 18 draws a face 20 of the flange 14 into engagement with the outside of the housing wall 16.

In order to make the connection between the connector 10 and the housing wall 16 moisture-proof, a face gasket 21 approximately the same shape as flange face 20 is provided for positioning between the flange face 20 and housing wall 16. This gasket forms a moistureproof seal around the circumference of the flange 14, but does not prevent leakage of moisture through bolt holes 15. For this purpose, bolt gaskets 22 are provided. These gaskets 22 have an internal bore 23 large enough to snugly receive the shank portion of bolts 18, and a conically tapered outer surface 24 adapted to seat in counterbore 17 in such manner that a small portion 25 of the outer end protrudes from the counterbores. When the gaskets 22 are engaged by the heads of bolts 18 and deformably compressed against the conical seating surface of the counterbore 17, they are entrapped between the bolt shanks and the seating surface thereby forming an effective seal between the bolts and the flange. The protruding portions 25 expand over the outer rim of the counterbore 17 aiding in the seal.

To maintain continuity of the electrical ground circuit, annual washers 26 are provided, which have scarfing teeth 27 attached at their periphery and positioned approximately perpendicular to the body of the washer. Two of these washers are located on the shank of each of the bolts 18, one between the bolt head and the bolt gasket 22, and a second adjacent the nuts 19. The outer circumference of the washers 26 is larger than the maximum outer surface diameter of the gaskets 22 so that on the washers positioned adjacent the bolt heads the scarfing teeth 27, which are directed towards the flange 14, extend over the protruding portion 25 of these gaskets to engage the surface of the flange. The scarfing teeth 27 on the washers adjacent the nuts 19 are directed toward the housing wall 16 to engage its inner surface.

In operation, an electrical conduit 13 is threaded into the bore 12 in such a manner as to give a moistureproof, electrically-grounded connection as previously described. The connector 10 is then secured to the housing wall 16 by fitting bolts 18 through the bolt holes 15 in flange 14 and thereafter passing the bolts through suitable openings in the housing wall for engagement by the nuts 19. When the nuts are tightened onto the bolts, the face gasket 21 is compressed between flange face 20 and housing wall 16 and bolt gaskets 22 are compressed between the heads of bolts 18 and counterbores 17. A moisture-proof connection is thereby established between the electrical conduit 13 and the housing wall 16. Thread tightening the nuts 19 on bolts 13 also forces scarfing teeth 27 on the washers 26 into the surfaces of the flange and housing wall, thereby establishing an effective electrical grounding connection between the electrical conduit 13 and housing wall 16.

While I have shown and described a preferred form of my invention, it is obvious that changes may be made therein. For this reason I do not wish to be limited to the particular form or arrangement of parts herein described and shown, but rather to the scope of the appended claims.

Iclaim:
