Description

TECHNICAL FIELD OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates to field of heater, in particular relates to a rotary flame heater.

BACKGROUND

About existing glass tube heater on the market, no matter what diameter of the glass tube it is, the flame all burns vertically with a same ornamental effect, as a result the flame does not make a full use of the combustion space in the internal of the glass tube. The flame as a whole is vertically upward and does not contact with the glass tube directly.

Under such circumstances, because the diameter of the flame only occupies part of the diameter of the glass tube, the flame is unable to hit the inner wall of the glass tube directly. As a result, the inner wall of the glass tube cannot be heated adequately, and the glass tube is unable to dissipate heat well, which fails to achieve the purpose of heating. Furthermore, the shape of the flame of the heater is dull and rigid.

Existing solutions such as patent App. No. 201410377119.0 and patent App. No. 201420433026.0 relate to a semicircle shaped glass tube and a supporter. The solution may make a rotation effect theoretically. However, semicircle shaped glass tube has a high breakage ratio during manufacturing process, which is against mass production and production packaging. Furthermore, the design of the supporter will leave some holes and crevices, the flame will go out of the glass tube through the crevices during rotation. This brings potential safety hazard. The solution is also inconvenient for assembling.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The objective of the present invention is to overcome the defect that the flame goes out of the glass tube through the crevices during rotation and provide a rotary flame heater.

The technical solution in the present invention is: a rotary flame heater, comprising a burner, a first wind wheel, a second wind wheel and a glass tube which are set in sequence from bottom to top;

an ignition device is disposed on one side of the burner, both of the first wind wheel and the second wind wheel are annular, a plurality of first air inlet passages are aslant set on a sidewall of the first wind wheel, a plurality of second air inlet passages are aslant set on a sidewall of the second wind wheel, the inclined direction of the plurality of first air inlet passages is the same with that of the second air inlet passages.

Preferably, a height of the ignition device is the same with a height of the plurality of first air inlet passages, an inner diameter of the first wind wheel is less than the size of the burner, a bottom of the first wind wheel is fit with a top surface of the burner. The first wind wheel is configured to mix more air before the mixed gas contacts the air coming from the plurality of second air inlet passages, and provides a rotary path for air when air enters into the first wind wheel at the same time, and thereby provides an initial rotation power. Furthermore, rotary flame has stronger rotate speed than ordinary flame, which may extinguish a long burning fire generated by the ignition device and as a result extinguish the whole burner. As the first air inlet passage is set aslant, the inner wall of the first air inlet passage can be used to block the long burning fire, which avoids extinguishing the long burning fire.

Furthermore, a side wall of the burner is set with an air inlet pipe connected to the burner, the air inlet pipe is set with an air inlet hole. The first air inflow in the air inlet hole mixes with the fuel gas in the air inlet pipe to form a mixed gas. The mixed gas enters the burner through the air inlet pipe.

Furthermore, a size of the air inlet hole is 8 mm*20 mm. The size of existing air inlet hole is 16 mm*12 mm, in order to ensure large amount of air to support the fuel gas and to avoid carbon deposition. In the present invention, a second air inflow is needed through the second air inlet passage to provide enough rotating power, so the size of air inlet hole is decreased. The mixed gas in the burner still needs more air to mix for sufficient burning. The second air inflow in the second air inlet passage can not only make the gas burnt adequately to avoid carbon deposition, but also improve rotating power of the flame.

Specifically, the first wind wheel comprises an upper dead plate, a lower dead plate, and a plurality of first blades set between the upper dead plate and the lower dead plate, an interval between each two adjacent first blades forms a first air inlet passage;

the second wind wheel comprises an upper mounting plate, a lower mounting plate, and a plurality of second blades set between the upper mounting plate and the lower mounting plate, an interval between each two adjacent second blades forms a second air inlet passage.

Preferably, the plurality of first blades and the plurality of second blades are both arc-shaped to ensure a good rotating effect of the first air inflow and the second air inflow.

Furthermore, in order to avoid the influence on the flame by entering too much air into the first air inlet passage and the second air inlet passages, an outward of the upper dead plate is set with a first annular baffle extending to the plurality of first air inlet passages;

a second annular baffle is also set on an outward of the upper mounting plate and extended to the plurality of second air inlet passages.

Preferably, for facilitating the assembling of the glass tube, a top surface of the upper mounting plate is set with an annular limiting plate projecting from the top surface, an outer diameter of the annular limiting plate matches with an inner diameter of the glass tube, an external of the glass tube is set with a protection net. The glass tube is sleeved on an external of the annular limiting plate to fix the glass tube effectively. The protection net set on the external of the glass tube can avoid scald by contacting the glass tube.

Preferably, for facilitating the assembling of the burner, the first wind wheel and the second wind wheel, the rotary flame heater further comprises a mounting cap, the mounting cap is set with a through-hole in the center, the burner and the first wind wheel are mounted within the mounting cap, the second wind wheel is mounted on an upper end of the mounting cap, the first wind wheel, the second wind wheel and the through-hole are set co-axially, the mounting cap is set with a plurality of vents connected with external, a bottom of the mounting cap is set with a mounting cavity for mourning a fuel gas source. The fuel gas source, such as a gas cylinder, is placed within the mounting cavity, which saves much space.

Beneficial effects: this application adds a first wind wheel and a second wind wheel in the upper end of the burner, and retains the glass tube, which can make the flame to generate a rotating effect. The rotary flame can make full use of the combustion space, increase the contacting area with the glass tube and increase the calorific value when burns the same gas, which achieves a better heating effect.
