Title (EN) SYSTEM, METHOD AND TUBE ASSEMBLY FOR HEATING AUTOMOTIVE FLUIDS
(FR) SYSTEME, PROCEDE ET ENSEMBLE TUYAU POUR CHAUFFER DES FLUIDES D'AUTOMOBILE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A tube heating assembly having a heating tube with proximate and distal end portions, a manifold insert disposed concentrically within the heating tube and likewise having proximate and distal end portions/ and a pair of end caps removably secured to the proximate and distal end portions of the manifold insert and the heating tube respectively. The manifold insert includes a raised spiral thread on its surface. An electrical assembly such as a resistive path applied to the outer surface of the heating tube is used to heat the tube. The tube heating assembly may be embodied in a system and method for delivering an automotive fluid in a vehicle, wherein the tube heating assembly is installed as a heat exchanger in a fluid delivery path through which the fluid is pumped, preferably in pulses to enhance heating of the fluid.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble chauffage de tuyau qui comporte un tuyau chauffant présentant des parties d'extrémité proximale et distale; un élément d'insertion de collecteur placé de façon concentrique dans le tuyau chauffant et qui comporte également des parties d'extrémité proximale et distale; et deux capuchons d'extrémité, fixés amovibles sur les parties d'extrémité proximale et distale de l'élément d'insertion de collecteur et du tuyau chauffant, respectivement. L'élément d'insertion de collecteur comprend sur sa surface un filetage hélicoïdal en relief. Un ensemble électrique tel qu'un circuit résistif, appliqué sur la surface extérieure du tuyau chauffant, est utilisé pour chauffer le tuyau. L'ensemble chauffage de tuyau s'utilise dans un système et un procédé d'apport de fluide d'automobile dans un véhicule, ledit ensemble étant installé comme un échangeur de chaleur dans un circuit d'apport de fluide permettant de pomper le fluide, de préférence par impulsions, afin d'accroître le chauffage de celui-ci.
