Description

BACKGROUND

This invention relates in general to certain new and useful and required improvements in efficient and aesthetic methods to prevent conditioned air leakage, atmospheric air infiltration, moisture, rodents and insects.

The wall receiver seeks to help and improve current and future methods for improved long term optimal energy efficiencies in residential and commercial buildings and to follow the Residential and Commercial Energy Model Codes and the Residential and Commercial Building Model Codes.

In combination to the abovementioned, building fenestration has become an important energy efficient issue. The stoppage or minimization of outdoor atmospheric air coming into the building as well as the stoppage or minimization of indoor conditioned air leakage exiting the building, is a very important issue, as this negatively affects the controlled indoor building temperature and will make the cooling or heating mechanical systems work harder and longer and leads to more energy consumption.

There are also many associated performance installation challenges when wall penetration is required by refrigerant lines including, sealing, aesthetics, flexibility, isolation, vibration, degradation of the wall membrane and/or the refrigerant piping, or a combination of both. Many times, the multiple amounts of Air Conditioning or Heating Systems and their respective refrigerant piping are ganged up in one central location and make it difficult for the installer to install, seal, and protect from corrosion and/or degradation. Therefore, there is a need for a receiver that can accommodate refrigerant piping in a quick, efficient, aesthetic, single unit method and/or a systemic multiple battery gang method. These types of installations are common in single family dwellings, multi-family apartment type buildings, commercial buildings, office buildings, and where more than one unit system is installed in the same area.

There are many different ways that these installations are taking place, such as the recess boxing method; this is done by the installer having a metal box fabricated and embedded into the exterior wall and having the refrigerant piping going through it and then sealing all around with a urethane foam or other kind of sealant; however, this type of installation destroys any potential energy savings due to improper use of long term sealing, and aesthetically, the recess boxing method looks unsightly with unfinished cavities in the wall, and the hardened urethane foam materials fail and become cracked, which create air leakage gaps and further energy loss.

There are installations that are presently being used that make use of single inlet roof flashing, which get attached and are embedded into the rough membrane of the exterior wall and which are made of sheet metal, plastic or a combination. The flashing is used to contain an area for the refrigerant piping set to go through a single metal area and other flashing contain a neoprene resilient single area for the seal of the piping that stretches to accommodate different diameters.

However, there are several set-backs to these installation methods, which use metal-only flashing; not only does it become a necessity to seal for air leakage in the gap left between the piping and the annular metal area of the flashing, but this also creates is a very difficult hollow area to seal. These installations are presently being sealed with adhesive tape that fail in a very short time due to the constant vibration of these refrigerant pipes, and many times, there are left large voids; also, foam sealers, which are not intended for such use, tend to fail in a short period of time and leave large voids, which allows for vermin, rodents, air or moisture to enter the building. Roof flashing is also limited in that it does not allow the installer an option of attachment as the installation always has to be installed on the rough wall while construction is taking place; this can be a real problem if the installer misses or forgets to install during construction. The other limitation is that the single passageway holds a very thin area that requires a difficult angle to accommodate and lacks enough surface area continuance, which makes an efficient installation impossible; this is due to the combination of the flashings outer surface funnel shape and/or due to the lack of flexibility to receive piping from many times extreme and difficult directional angles to be received or accepted. In addition, whether a metal or plastic roof flashing is used or not used, the non-supported exterior wall flashing material, which gets terminated at the neck area radius of the flashing, creates a difficult and unsupported surface area to apply the seal materials. This all combines to create areas with unfinished material gaps, crevasses, and cracks that cause all of the above mentioned problems. The other limitation of roof flashings is the lack of flexibility that the single opening lacks as refrigerant piping address the wall from many different angles before going into or out of the exterior walls. See U.S. Pat. No. 5,288,267 Rodriguez and U.S. Pat. No. 7,730,681 Gilleran.

In addition, there is a final installation method that uses an exterior rigid plastic wall shield that is not always economically feasible. Most of the linear refrigerant piping is installed in the cavity of the exterior walls. Sealing to prevent air leakage and all the above mentioned issues are not a feature in that system. In addition there is a limitation with rigid shields as flexibility has become a challenge and an important requirement for full enclosure of these “hard to follow” piping patterns.

There is a need for a complete wall mounting receiver in the marketplace. The installer have been having to resort to “make shift” or custom fabrications or improper application type products that leave much room for improvement and are limited on sealing, aesthetics, attachment, vibration, isolation and are time consuming to the installer. Therefore, there is a need for a wall mounted receiver which is easy to install and highly efficient in operation.

OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION

One of the primary objects of the invention to provide a wall mounted receiver that will create a long term energy efficient refrigerant piping installation that will not depend on adhesives, tape, foam fillers, and will incorporate mechanical attachments for improved aesthetics and single and multiple inlets, connections, and sizes and any other combination thereof. It is another further object of the invention to mechanically connect a single insulated line set or a multiple refrigerant piping set or a battery refrigerant piping set to a single wall receiver that has the ability to seal and secure a single portal or multiple portals against air leakage and to accommodate different diameters and to include one or more portals within the same wall receiver.

Other objects of the present invention include: the wall receiver can be installed in an existing connected application without the need for cutting of the refrigerant piping; the wall mounted receiver portals have a high degree of flexibility that allows for sealing at an extreme angle and offer high flexibility to accommodate difficult to seal line set patterns; and the wall mounted receiver allow for an economic installation solution to allow the longest linear possible of the refrigerant piping to be installed without cutting and yet allow for the soft copper piping bending radius required, to exit at the equipment service point without the need for extra pipe, fittings, or joints to solder.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a wall mounted receiver that allows or receives refrigerant piping at the service point where the mechanical equipment is installed either outdoors or indoors. The building or wall receiver can be made out of plastic injected molded and made out of Acrylonitrile Styrene Acrylate (ASA) rigid Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) or Acrylic Butylene Styrene (ABS) or the like, and can either be fabricated or molded and made out of metal. These mentioned plastic materials can resist long term outdoor exposure by the use of additives. The portal or portals that are also mounted on the receiver and that will also be receiving the piping have a radius construction made out of plastic that is resilient flexible materials like Santoprene brand thermoplastic rubber, neoprene (polychloroprene synthetic rubbers), silicone or the like. The importance of this material to be flexible and resilient is that the specific point of connection is best suited with these features to accommodate different piping with different diameter sizes, so the requirement for resilient material is important multiple size fit capabilities. A tight and flexible supported fit can then be utilized to prevent building air leakage or the like from the portal, in addition a secondary holding fastener is also utilized to ensure a continued mechanical connection, security, and long term sealing with the refrigerant piping going through wall penetrations.

Fasteners are also part of the wall mounted receiver for wall attachment, and may come in different lengths depending on the wall membrane thickness requirement. The wall receiver can also include fastener openings or apertures that will allow easy installation directly to the wall. The use of caps can also be used to cover the fastener opening areas as well.

A wall mounted receiver to accommodate insulated pipes or non-insulated pipes of different sized diameters and can accommodate one or more inlets and or portals to accommodate single or multiple pipes conduit or wiring per portal, within the same receiver with a high degree of flexibility and unique mechanical connection security. The mounted wall receiver is arranged to receive the insulated piping or non-insulated piping from any directional angle with a unique flexible inlet capability. The wall receiver serves buildings with any kind of outdoor or indoor service refrigeration equipment piping. The wall receiver can also service air conditioning or refrigeration equipment and their respective service refrigerant lines, including without limitation: insulated pipes, non-insulated pipes, condensation piping, conduit and wiring.

The wall mounted receiver can be mounted to different wall surface materials and without the use of a wall bracket; the wall materials include without limitation: masonry, brick, siding, stucco and concrete. The wall mounted receiver can also be fit into tight space service areas depending on refrigeration equipment requirements. The wall mounted receiver is designed to be installed as an option for new construction applications, to upgrade existing installations without the need to cut the existing piping, to replace existing installations, and for addition to existing installations without the need to cut the existing piping, but all in an aesthetic and efficient way.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

One preferred embodiment of the invention is the wall mounted receiver in FIG. 1A-1D that incorporates at least one or a single portal 400 to receive insulated piping or non-insulated piping or a combination of both, and a method to receive a pipe insulation protector with mechanical connecting option 500 (including without limitation, a clamp). This portal and its base combines a unique over molded plastic injection 300 attachment combined with a mechanical attachment, therefore creating a superior bonding method between the wall mounted receiver 100 and the attached portal 400. FIG. 1A incorporates many detailed and useful solutions for the many challenges associated with the wall penetration piping installations and the many challenges to seal these in a professional, effective, long term, and in an aesthetic manner. A portal is also known as a rounded long flange; a long necked opening; tunnel shaped opening; or a tube extension.

In FIG. 1A, the wall receiver 100 can have a predetermined angle 101 range, making it possible to bending and to accommodate the piping inside a wall cavity towards and through the exterior wall within the range 101 required to install and connect, and yet without kinking said piping. The installations using the least possible soldering joints and fittings are the most desirable, because this is a more economical and efficient way to install. This type of installation has other economic benefits as well, as it is a way of minimizing added friction within the fluids for better efficiency and performance of the equipment with improved energy efficiency long term results. The piping fluids are carried by soft copper piping, this copper piping can be bent by the installer only to a certain degree—this is a standard practice used in the plumbing, heating, and air conditioning industry. The other benefit is that insulated piping will be more protected inside the wall cavity from weather degradation, which maintains long term energy efficiency.

Residential and Commercial Energy Model Codes require improved energy efficiency, including the prevention of heat or cold atmospheric air infiltration from coming into the building and/or combining with conditioned air inside the building from exiting the building, which negatively affects the energy consumption of these buildings. In FIG. 1A, a gasket for sealing 200 helps prevent air leakage and wall surface degradation using dissimilar materials, the gasket is assisted by the use of fasteners as shown in FIG. 1A. The wall receiver in FIG. 1A has apertures 800 for to accommodate fasteners; a peripheral flange or rim 900, which support and allows for any added sealing that may be applied (such as weatherproof silicone or caulking) around the narrow edge perimeter or flange 900 of the receiver; and the use of an entry point or points in the wall receiver. The apertures 800 can have integrated sockets for guiding the threaded screws or bolts though the receiver housing.

The wall receiver shown in FIG. 1A is a preferred embodiment to be installed on its own without the use of any type of wall bracket; as shown in FIG. 1A, the wall receiver has apertures in combination of counter sunk seated areas inside the passageway (as shown in FIG. 2A, 2B) of the aperture guides 1800 to accommodate either the flanged bolts, screws and/or their respective seal washers, and to accommodate a multiple amount of fasteners that are available for the installer's choice and that are capable of going through the receiver and wall area, using self-tapping screws 600, bolts, anchor fasteners, toggle fasteners, or any combination of the like. The wall receiver installation hardware fasteners help deter air leakage with use of washers or washer seals 700 with each fastener.

The wall receiver can have at least one or a one single portal that goes over the wall receiver openings. The portal 400 and the portal base 300 are attached to the wall receiver by the use of elastomeric material over molding or an attached molded sandwich type insert positioned through the use of a channel and a perforated area in the wall receiver. In FIG. 1A, the portal has multiple internal cut score lines 403 and/or designated area guidelines so the installer can cut to the desired fit size on the job.

As shown in FIG. 1A, there can be at least one or multiple raised lines or guides 401 that can combine to designate the area 402 for clamp or ring fasteners; these at least one lines or guides 401 can also be cutting line guides 403 or score lines with integral weakened or exterior or internal thinner material lines for cutting to the required length. The single portal can have a continuous long neck 400 area shown in FIG. 1A and has an inlet passageway continuance that conventional roof flashings lack; it incorporates an internal passageway area for a higher degree of air leakage deterrence. At the same time, the exterior portal 400 neck area allows for piping vibration control, weather resistance, and a tamper-resistant connection with the insulated piping and or its respective protector with the added security of mechanical type clamps or fastener apparatus 500 (FIG. 1A) to secure to the portal 400. The portal neck 400 can be made of a highly resilient and resistant plastic. The portal 400 and its portal base 300 can be attached by plastic over molding, snap on fastening, bolts, threaded attachment, inserted or other co-acting fastening components. The wall receiver, portal 400 and or the portal base 300 can have a threaded connection (either molded, or attached to its construction) to assist in connecting an optional pipe insulated protector with the wall receiver and at the same time serving as a portal inlet passageway. The portal inlets and diameters as shown in FIG. 1A can be sized in multi-diameter portal sizes 400 and with score lines for cutting to the desired diameter that is required to be fitted and or connected to.

In one embodiment, both sides of the portal surface neck 400 area and its internal area, are able to be sized for a single diameter passageway or a multiple diameter passageway of pipe and/or conduit types or wiring with rib type or non-rib type formations 404 of any shape, size or pattern, which increase sealing against air leak and/or piping vibration. In another embodiment, this can also be used by a step-down or tapered diameter downsized constructed portal. In another embodiment, the shape of the portal can also be configured to the shape or shapes of the insulated piping including irregular shapes.
