Abstract

In a preferred embodiment, a drill gas turbine motor in which the housing structure directs pressurized gas both radially inwardly and axially along the longitudinal axis of the elongated housing, against vanes arranged along a circumscribing surface of the revolvable (rotatable) rotor mounted within rotor space within the housing to effect rotation of the rotor, and a drivable shaft extending from an opening at one end of the housing, and a dampening-spring mechanism at an opposite end of the housing and rotor arranged to dampen pressure and movement of the rotor in a direction away from the end of the drivable shaft thereby reducing wear on bearings supporting the rotar at opposite ends thereof, together with brake mechanism for manually exerting braking pressure against the rotor, and key mechanism for locking the rotor in a non-revolvable state during change of chuck on the drivable shaft, and the drivable shaft having formed in a distal end thereof a female receptacle receivable of a male end of a chuck.

  1. 1. A gas turbine motor comprising in combination: a substantially cylindrical stator housing forming therewithin a rotor space and having an open end at at-least one of opposite ends thereof; means for supplying pressurized gas to the housing into said rotor space at substantially one of said opposite ends; a rotor comprising a generally cylindrical member having helically-arranged vanes extending circumscribingly along an outer surface of the cylindrical member along a longitudinal axis thereof and being rotatably disposed inside the housing within the rotor space such that the presurized gas impinges onto the vanes to turn the rotor; gas-directing means for receiving gas supplied and to direct supplied pressurized gas concurrently radially inwardly and axially against said vanes in an axial direction of the longitudinal axis of the cylindrical member; a shaft means extending axially of the rotor along the longitudinal axis thereof, for engagement by a driven load, the shaft means being mounted drivably at one end thereof to be driven by the rotor and extending outwardly through said open end at said one end; bearing means at opposite ends of said cylindrical member arranged to support the shaft means rotatably within opposite ends of the housing; an annular ring loosely-mounted around said shaft means, between said helically-arranged vanes and said bearing means; said vanes being pitched at a predetermined pitch to cooperate with pressurized gas to be impinged thereagainst; dampening-spring means for resiliently resisting within said space, movement of the rotor axially along its longitudinal axis in a direction away from said open end of said one end, positioned between an enlarged portion of said rotor and said bearing means within said rotor space at an opposite end from said opening; a safety plate means of annular shape mounted within said open end of said one end at a point in juxtaposition to said bearing means at that end thereof and closer to the open end than the bearing means; and retaining means for securing said safety plate means within the housing, such that spent-bearings are trapped within the housing if a bearing should fragment during rotation of the rotor.
  2. 2.2. A gas turbine motor comprising in combination: a substantially cylindrical stator housing forming therewithin a rotor space and having an open end at at-least one of opposite ends thereof; means for supplying pressurized gas to the housing into said rotor space at substantially one of said opposite ends; a rotor comprising a generally cylindrical member having helically-arranged vanes extending circumscribingly along an outer surface of the cylindrical member along a longitudinal axis thereof and being rotatably disposed inside the housing within the rotor space such that the pressurized gas impinges onto the vanes to turn the rotor; in which said stator housing includes inner and outer sleeves, the outer sleeve having female inner mating threads, the inner sleeve having outer male threads, an end structure of the inner sleeve having an outer surface thereof extending substantially transversely of said longitudinal axis, said outer surface forming a plurality of fork-wrench holes adapted to facilitate the screw-in insertion of the inner sleeve into the outer sleeve; gas-directing means for receiving gas supplied and to direct supplied pressurized gas concurrently radially inwardly and axially against said vanes in an axial direction of the longitudinal axis of the cylindrical member; a shaft means extending axially of the rotor along the longitudinal axis thereof, for engagement of a driven load, the shaft means being mounted drivably at one end thereof to be driven by the rotor and extending outwardly through said open end at said one end; bearing means at opposite ends of said cylindrical member arranged to support the shaft means rotatably within opposite ends of the housing; an annular ring loosely-mounted around said shaft means, between said helically-arranged vanes and said bearing means; said vanes being pitched at a predetermined pitch to cooperate with pressurized gas to be impinged thereagainst; and dampening-spring means for resiliently resisting within said space, movement of the rotor axially along its longitudinal axis in a direction away from said open end of said open end of said one end, positioned between an enlarged portion of said rotor and said bearing means within said rotor space at an opposite end from said opening.
