MOISTURE rdtsrsrANr PANEL HEATER BACKGROIIND or THE INVENTION l. Fieldof the Invention This invention relates to a panel heater for use in water or in a wet condition, especially in a fish tank for 2. Description of the Prior Art The panel heater for such purposes must meet a number of requirements, among which are;

I. It shouldhave an output suited for the particular size of the water tank, and be free from current leakage.

2.,Its surfacetemperature should not be too high (watt density).

3. It should not be corroded by sea water.

4'. There should be no change in the resistance of the heat-generating element with the passage of time, and the element should generate a constant amount of heat.

5. The outer sheath of the heater should not burn when exposed to air. I

6. The size of the heater should be moderate and easy to withdraw from the tank.

The conventional underwater heater which has a metal surface-has a high watt density and a surface temperature of more than 200C, and its temperature gradient in a water tank is steep.,Therefore, it is unsuitable for fish culture. Furthermore, the metal coating on the surface is especially heavily corroded in a fish tank for sea fish, and can be used only for a short duration of time. I

Commercially available vinyl resin coated wires are sometimes used as a heater for a fish tank. Officially,

with laminated layers of synthetic resin films on both sides suffer from an increase in the resistance of the heating element by the influence of moisture which has permeated through the films as time passes, and a decrease in output cannot be avoided. Furthermore, when the heaters of this type are connected in water to an alternating current source, the worker standing on the ground feels leaked current when putting his hand into the water, although the leakage does not affect the fish in the tank. According to the Law for Regulating Electric Appliances, the leaked current should be less than 1 mA. Experiments show that in order to adjust the leaked current to less lmA, the maximum area of the panel heater should be restricted to 700cm and its output should be adjusted to less than 140 W. With such a panel heater, it is impossible to maintain a water tank having a capacity of 300 to 500 liters at a moderate temperature of to 28C.

SUMMARY. OF THE INVENTION The present invention Provides a panel heater containing a carbon fiber-containing paper as a heating element, which is free from the above-mentioned defects as an underwater heater.

The main object of this invention is to provide an underwater heater for maintaining a fish tank for sea fish culture at a moderate temperature, which is safe and usable for prolonged periods of time, that is, to reduce leakage of current by incorporating aluminum foil in a panel heater, and to prevent a change of the resistance of the heating element with the passage of time.

Still another object is to prevent the leakage of current at the current passing part of a panel heater.

- BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a plan view showing the structure ofa moisture resistant panel heater of this invention;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged sectional view of a part of the panel heater shown in FIG. 1; and

FIG. 3 is a partly sectional plan view showing the current passing part of the panel heater of this invention.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The structure of the panel heater of this invention will be described by reference to the accompanying drawings.

Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, there is shown a panel heater consisting of a heating element 1, layers 2 and 2' of a synthetic resin such as polyethylene, aluminum foils 3 and 3', layers 4 and 4' of the above-mentioned synthetic resin, outer layers 5 and 5 of a synthetic resin such as a polyester, electrodes 6 and 6, and conducting wires 7 and 7' for passing electricity. Specifically. on both surfaces of the heating element 1 consisting of a sheet of carbon fiber-containing paper and electrodes 6 and 6 made, for example, of a copper wire gauze I connected to both ends of the paper sheet are laminated the synthetic resin layers 2 and 2. On both surfaces of the resin layers, the aluminum foils 3 and 3' are then laminated. Furthermore, on both surfaces of the.

aluminum foils, the synthetic resin layers such as polyethylene 4 and 4 and then the synthetic resin sheets such as polyester 5 and 5' are laminated successively. The heating element 1 is adapted to be heated by passing electricity through the electrodes 6 and 6.

For example, when the panel heater is used in water or in a wet condition, it is necessary to take measures for preventing current leakage at terminals leading to the heating element in water or in a wet condition, as shown in FIG. 3. An extension of the electrode 6 of the panel heater is soldered to a core 10 of an exteriorly insulated conductor, and a polyethylene insulating layer ll of the conductor is laminated by hot pressing to the polyethylene layer2 and 2 which is an interlayer of the synthetic resinportion of the above-heating element. Then, a part of a polyvinyl chloride sheath 8 of the conductor is brought into contact with the edge 12 of the above laminated synthetic resin Sand 5, and then, both of them are wrapped in contact with each other in a cloth, such as a felt or flannel I3, impregnated with an epoxy resin, and by curing the epoxy resin the, terminal portions of thepanel heater are completed.

By this construction, the impermeability of the aluminum foils serves to avoid an increase in the resistance of the carbon fiber-containing paper, and hence a decrease inoutput. Furthermore, the presence of the aluminum foils contributes to the reduction of leaked current to about one-third as compared with a panel heater which does not include aluminum foils. Thus, the area of the panel heater can be increased by about three times.

The panel heater of this invention produces output suitable for a given fish culture tank, and is free from current leakage and corrosion by sea water. It also prevents changes in the resistance of the heating element with the passage of time, and also burning of the outer layer during heat generation in air. It is flexible and can be formed into any desired shape, and moreover, a suitable temperature gradient in the fish tank can be provided by its suitable surface temperature. Thus, the panel heater of this invention can be effectively used with safety not only in water but also ina wet environment. v
