Radiator

The idea concerns the connection of a radiator to a supply mains and again to a valve located in the radiator in such a way that the valve can control the heat supply to the radiator, either directly or by means of a thermostatic element. Usually, the radiator will be supplied with hot water (but any other medium or a cooling medium in connection with cooling purposes can be imagined) from the supply mains, and if a valve built into the radiator is concerned, the medium will be led to this valve, from which it is distributed to the radiator.

The enclosed figure shows a pipe radiator. It has been cut exactly in the middle, meaning that a “whole” radiator will have another, exactly corresponding, half. The radiator is made of pipes connected to two square profiles, one at the top and one at the bottom of the radiator. Between these square profiles are located a number of curved pipes (1) on either side and a straight pipe connection (2), which, as mentioned above, has been cut through. On a radiator as shown in the drawing, with an even number of middle pipes (the radiator can of course have a random number of pipes), the two central pipes will be exactly in the middle of the radiator, as shown in the drawing by (3) and (4). When the central pipes (3, 4) are extended as shown in the drawing, a radiator with central connection will be achieved. One pipe (3 in the drawing) will then form the connection to the inlet of the radiator, and the only thing required additi...
