F24H
FLUID HEATERS, e.g. WATER OR AIR HEATERS, HAVING HEAT GENERATING MEANS, IN GENERAL (heat-transfer, heat-exchange or heat-storage materials C09K 5/00; tube furnaces for thermal non-catalytic cracking C10G 9/20; devices, e.g. valves, for venting and aerating enclosures F16K 24/00; steam traps or like apparatus F16T; steam generation F22; combustion apparatus F23; domestic stoves or ranges F24B, F24C; domestic- or space-heating systems F24D; furnaces, kilns, ovens, retorts F27; heat-exchangers F28; electric heating elements or arrangements H05B) [2013-01]
NOTES

  • The distinguishing feature of the air heaters covered by this subclass is that the heat is predominantly released to the air by convection, mostly by forced circulation of the air. The domestic stoves or ranges covered by subclasses F24B, F24C may also be fired or electric air heaters but they release their heat to a considerable extent by radiation and only to some extent by natural convection.
  • In this subclass the following terms are used with the meanings indicated:
    • "Water" includes other liquids;
    • "air" includes other gases or gas mixtures;
    • "water" and "air" always mean, respectively, the liquid and gas to be heated;
    • "Furnace tubes" means tubes inside the heater wherein combustion is performed;
    • "Fire tubes" means tubes inside the heater through which flue-gases flow from a combustion chamber located outside the tubes;
    • "Heater" means apparatus including both heat generating means and means for transferring the generated heat to water or air.
  • All storage heaters are classified in group F24H 7/00.
