WATER-WHEEL.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Jan. 30, 1912.
Application filed May 18, 1910. Serial N 0. 561,963.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, GIULIANO VERDE, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Beaumont, in the county of Jefferson and State of Texas, have invented a new and Improved Water-Wheel, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
The invention relates to hydraulic motors of the bucket wheel type, and has for an object to provide a waterwheel adapted for use in driving machinery such as pumps and the like.
For the purpose mentioned, use is made of a series of connected bucket-s mounted to turn on an axle, and means for alternately charging the buckets with water.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference denote corresponding parts in both views, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation, partially in section, and disclosing the construction and operation of my invention and showing the same connected with a pump; and Fig. 2 is a plan view of my water wheel. 2
Referring to the figures, I employ a circular series of connected buckets 1, mounted to mutually support each other and turn on an axle 2. The buckets are preferably angular shape and in two rows, with the openings 3 of each bucket 1 in alinement with the middle or center plane of the adjacent bucket. Thus, referring to Fig. 2, the opening of a bucket will be adjacent the center plane of the adjacent bucket the openings of the two series thus alternating in radial planes.
As before stated, the buckets are preferably of angular form, having radial front and rear walls 20 and 21 respectively whereby when assembled they will mutually support each other and form a cheap and substantial structure easily built up of separate units each a duplicate of the other. The peripheral walls 22 of each bucket joins the front radial wall and is preferably arranged at substantially right angles thereto leaving the entrance opening for the water between the rear edge of the peripheral wall and the front radial wall of the next succeeding bucket. This construction is not only advantageous because of its simpliclty and strength, but as thebuckets turn down below the horizontal the body of water held in each bucket moves radially outward thereby increasing the leverage exerted by the water on the wheel. Each peripheral wall also forms a chute for directing the water into the forward bucket until the wheel rotates enough to bring its own entrance opening beneath the delivery spou A supply pipe 4 is provided and has two similar nozzles 5, adapted to alternately charge the buckets 1 as the openings 3 come into position-to receive the water flowing from the nozzles 5. As will be easily seen, the alternate charging of the buckets makes the water wheel turn, and the power produced can be conveniently used to operate a pump 6, having a piston 7 secured to a walking beam 8, mounted on an upright 9 and connected by a rod 10 to a crank 11 keyed to the axle 2. A catch basin 12 is disposed beneath the water wheel and provided with an outlet pipe 13. As the wheel turns around, the water in the buckets 1 is spilled therefrom into the catch basin 12, from which it is drained by the pipe 13.
From the foregoing description, it will be seen that an efficient and reliable water wheel is disclosed, and it will be understood that although I have shown a particular construction for the purpose of describing my device, the scope of my invention is defined in the appended claims.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent 1. A water wheel adapted to be operated by gravity, embodying a circular series of separate buckets arranged to mutually support each other, each bucket formed by substantially radial front and rear walls and a peripheral wall at substantially right angles to and joining the front radial wall and a central axle on which the wheel is mounted.
2. A water wheel adapted to be operated by gravity, embodying two circular series of buckets, the buckets of one series alternating in radial planes with those of the other series and the buckets of each series being formed by radial walls whereby they mutually support each other in the Wheel, In testimony whereof I have signed my there being a peripheral Wall extending name to this specification in the presence of rearwardly from the front Wall of each two subscribing Witnesses.
