  • Patent number: 10495302
    Abstract: A combustor is provided, including a pipe and a burner tray. The pipe is transverse U-shaped, including a first pipe section and a second pipe section. The first pipe section has an inlet, and the second pipe section has an outlet extending along an axial direction thereof. The second pipe section has at least one reduced section, wherein a smallest sectional area in the reduced section is smaller than sectional areas on both sides of the reduced section. The burner tray is connected to the second pipe section, provided over the outlet, and has a plurality of flame holes which communicate with the outlet. Whereby, with the reduced section, the flow including gas could be evenly delivered to the burner tray.

  • Patent number: 10488078
    Abstract: A method of ensuring the safety of exhaust of a water heater includes the following steps: A. start the blower and detect a rotational speed of a motor thereof; B. determine a first range based on the detected rotational speed; C. start the blower and detect the rotational speed of the motor when the water heater is restarted again; D. keep supplying gas to the burner for combustion when the rotational speed detected in step C is within the first range. During operation, a second range is determined by detecting the rotational speed of the motor after an outlet water temperature reaches a corresponding constant temperature range; the rotational speed is continuously detected, and the gas supply is stopped if the detected rotational speed is out of the second range. Thereby, the result of the method would be more accurate regardless of the actual installed status of the exhaust pipe.

  • Patent number: 10473407
    Abstract: A water heater includes a combustion device, a primary heat exchanger, and a secondary heat exchanger. The combustion device burns gas to generate high-temperature air. The primary and the secondary heat exchangers are provided sequentially above the combustion device. When the high-temperature air passes through the primary heat exchanger, part of thermal energy is absorbed by exchange plates and a water pipe therein. When the high-temperature air continues to pass through the secondary heat exchanger, part of the rest thermal energy is absorbed by a heat tube set therein to preheat water flowing through the heat tube set. The preheated water then flows into the water pipe of the primary heat exchanger. The secondary heat exchanger includes a case and a cover board which detachably seals a bore on the case. Whereby, it is convenient for a user to clean pipes inside the secondary heat exchanger.
