Mart, Mission Township, Johnson County, Kans., assignor to The Marley Company, Inc., Kansas City, Kans., a corporation of Kansas Application November 8, 1943, Serial No. 509,384 1 Claim. (Cl. 299-114) 1 This invention relates to the art of water cool ing and particularly spray nozzles or fluid dis tribution members adapted for attachment to conduits through which fluid is passing and from which a portion thereof is Withdrawn by the spray nozzle for conversion into minute par ticles. ‘ One of the important objects of the instant invention is to provide a spray nozzle of the type designed to project laterally from pipes or the like, that comprises a number of separable sec tions held in operative position when the nozzle 2 in the side thereof for the reception of at least one iluid distribution nozzle. The nozzle per se comprises two sections I4 of like character, each of which has a smooth abutting face I6 provided with detents I8 to co operate with a coacting part of the opposite sec tion to preclude accidental lateral relative move ment of sections I4 as the nozzle is' being manip ulated prior to introduction into opening I2. ’llwo of said sections I4 are employed to com plete the nozzle body. The planar abutting faces lie on a plane intersecting the axis of the body and when the sections are together, the body has a polygonal head 20, a screw-threaded section A further aim of this invention is to provide 22 immediately below said head 20, an outlet a multi-part distribution nozzle of the afore oriñce 2.4 formed through the outer end wall mentioned character, comprising a longitudinally on the axis of the body, and a pair of inlet ports split body having at least two sections, each of 26. There is an inlet port 26 formed by each which cooperates to impart circular motion to section I4. Each section is notched as shown in the fluid entering the intake ports, one of which Fig. 5 to form three sides of the inlet port, the 20 is created in each section of the body. fourth side whereof is provided by the other Heretoforc spray nozzles of the lateral type section when the body is assembled. have been formed through the employment of Means for imparting circular motion to the numerous elements, each of which are separately fluid entering inlet ports 26, is in the nature of cast, machined or otherwise manufactured. Such an inwardly curled lip 28 concentric to the axis conventional nozzles are expensive to manufac 25 of the nozzle body and extending the length of ture, may not be put into use immediately after each inlet port 26. These lips 28 are substantially casting or molding occurs, and in many in diametrically opposed as illustrated in Fig. 4, stances, cannot be quickly remo-ved from the and such arrangement of parts together with operative position for cleaning. This invention, 30 the ñaring inner face of the hollow 39 of the therefore, provides a spray or distribution nozzle body, insures that the fluid will be forced up formed of plastic or other suitable moldable sub wardly and out through orifice 24. stance, the parts of which are identical, need not Each section I4 has a lip 28, an inlet port 26, be machined after removal from the mold, and a section of screw-threads 22, and a component are held together when the nozzle in its entirety Cw. CA part of outlet oriiice 24 formed thereby. These is introduced into a threaded` opening of a hole sections are easily molded, no machining is nec formed in a ñuid conduit. essary prior to assembly, and installation, and Minor objects of the invention including the removal of the nozzle body permits quick clean specific form of each section of the nozzle body,r ing and relocating. These advantages as well the manner of assembly for use, and the advan 40 as those emanating from simplicity, low cost of tages arising from a unit embodying the in manufacture, and use of inexpensive material, » assembly is in its normal location. vention, will appear during the course of the will readily indicate that this multi-part distri following specification, referring to the accom panying drawing, wherein: Fig. l is a fragmentary sectional view through bution nozzle is advantageous and while the pre ferred form has been illustrated and described, it is desired to be limited only by the scope of a length of conduit having a distribution nozzle the appended claim. embodying the invention mounted thereon. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the nozzle. Fig. 3 is a side elevational View thereof. Fig. 4 is a transverse cross sectional view taken on line IV-IV of Fig. 3; and Fig. 5 is a longitudinal sectional view through the nozzle taken on the line of separation and looking in the direction oli the arrow. Conduit I6 has a threaded opening I2 provided ' Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new and desired to be secured by Let ters Patent is: A spray nozzle of the character described com prising a pair of cupped sections of substantially the same contour having their edges in abutting relation t0 form a hollow body; a notch formed in the side wall of each section adjacent to one end thereof to provide inlet ports, said notches 2,409,371 3 being diametrically opposed when the sections are together to» create the hollow body; opposed notches formed in the opposite ends of the sec tions to establish an outlet oriñce on the axis of the body; a polygonal head on the edge of the sections having the outlet oriñce therein to 4 tion along that edge thereof forming the first mentioned notches, said lips being eccentric to the axis of the body and directed toward each other to impart a whirling motion to the Water passing through the hollow body, said sections present Wrench flats; screw-threads on the ex having cooperating detents formed on the abut ting edges lto hold the threads of the two sections terior of the sections below the said polygonal head; and an inwardly curled lip on each sec in operative relation.
