Title (EN) PORTABLE WELDING EQUIPMENT STORAGE RACK
(FR) RATELIER DE RANGEMENT PORTABLE POUR MATERIEL DE SOUDAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A portable rack (1) for storing and transporting welding equipment such as a welding hose (2B), gages, controls (2A) and a torch (2C), is configured so that the portable rack (1) can be easily removably mounted on a standard welding gas tank (3), such as an oxygen tank. The storage rack (1) includes a vertically extending rack body (10) with a hose support member (15) on which the welding hose (2B) can be coiled for storage, a mounting member (20) extending from the top of the rack body (10), and a support yoke (30) extending from the bottom of the rack body (10). The mounting member (20) is preferably a circular ring dimensioned to fit snugly, but removably on the neck (3B) at the top of the welding gas tank (3). The support yoke (30) is preferably an arc-shaped member dimensioned to rest fittingly against the side (3A) of the welding gas tank (3). A hanger bar (40) is provided at the top of the rack body (10) to hang the gages and controls (2A) therefrom, and a hook (50) is provided at the top of the rack body (10) to hang the torch (2C) therefrom. The welding hose (2B) and other accessories may be hung on the rack (1), and then the rack (1) may be easily carried from a storage location to a welding job site, where the rack (1) may then be lifted onto the welding gas tank (3) for neatly, safely, and conveniently managing great lengths of welding hose (2B) and other welding accessories.
(FR) L'invention concerne un râtelier portable (1), destiné au rangement et au transport du matériel de soudage tel que tube de soudage (2B), jauges, commandes externes (2A) et torche (2C), configuré de façon à pouvoir être facilement fixé amovible sur une bouteille de gaz de soudage standard (3), telle qu'une bouteille d'oxygène. Le râtelier (1) comprend un corps vertical (10) comportant un élément support (15) de tube, sur lequel on peut enrouler ce dernier (2B) afin de le ranger, un élément de fixation (20) partant du haut du corps (10) et un étrier support (30) partant de la base du corps (10). L'élément de fixation (20) est de préférence un anneau circulaire, ayant des dimensions qui permettent de l'ajuster serré mais amovible sur le col (3B) de la bouteille de gaz de soudage (3). L'étrier support (30) est de préférence un élément en forme d'arc, ayant des dimensions qui permettent de l'ajuster serré contre le côté (3A) de la bouteille (3). Une tringle (40), disposée en haut du corps (10) de râtelier, permet d'accrocher les jauges et les commandes externes (2A), et un crochet (50), disposé en haut du corps (10), permet d'accrocher la torche. Il est possible d'accrocher le tube de soudage (2B) et les autres accessoires sur le râtelier (1), puis de transporter celui-ci facilement depuis le lieu de rangement jusqu'au site du soudage, au niveau duquel on peut soulever le râtelier (1) et l'accrocher sur la bouteille de gaz (3), ce qui permet de gérer de manière précise, sûre et appropriée de grandes longueurs de tube (2B), ainsi que les autres accessoires de soudure.
