COMPRESSIBLE-FLUID WASHI R.

,To all 'whom z't may concern.'

Be it known that I, AnoLPH 1V. LissAUEn, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the -county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Compressible-Fluid Washer, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention relates to a washer for elastic fluids. An object thereof is to provide a. simple, inexpensive and convenient device for eliminating extraneous particles that may be carried by an elastic fluid and through which a maximum of elastic fluid pass With a minimum of friction.

further object of the invention is to provide a separator within the washer which will offer a maximum surface to the elastic fluid circulating therebetween with minimum resistance to the flow of the Huid therebetween.

Another object of the invention is to provide a washer having means for accumulating the extraneous matter and preventing the clrculation thereof with the inelastic liq- V uid used for washing the elastic liquid.

With the above and other objects in view, the nature of which will more fully appear as the description proceeds, the inventiQn consists in the novel construction, combnation and arrangement of parts as herein fully described, illustrated and claimed.

In. the' accompanying drawings, forming part ofthe ap lication, similar characters of reference in icate corresponding parts in all the views.

Figure 1 is a horizontal section on line "1f-1, Fig. 2 showing a washer embodying `my invention;

Fig. 2 is a vertical section on line 2-2,

Fi 1;-and

ig. 3 is an enlarged fragmentary plan view of the eliminators.

lReferring to the drawings, 4 is the chamber'of the washer, which is of angular struc- Vture having alining conduits 5 and 6 disosed on the opposite walls of the cham- Eer and preferably extending through the entire Width thereof, the conduit 5 serving as an inlet for an elastic Huid, while the conduit 6 forms the outlet therefor from the chamber. A separator 7 is located within the chamber 4 adjacent the' outlet con-` duit 6. The separator, which extends across i Specification ofiLettersllratent.

Patented Apr. 17, 1917.

the entire w dth of the chamber, consists,

of aplurality of eliminator-s or baies 8 disposed in parallel spaced relation. Each of the eliminators is preferably formed of sheet metal bent or shaped to present in cross section an irregular zigzag. The eliminators are secured so as to be in an upright position within the chamber-offering a sinuous passage there )etween to the outlet conduit 6.

The irreguar zigzag-shaped baffle plates in cross sectinn may be said to be formed of a pluralitjr of irregular Ls 9 (see Fig. 3) of which :he longer limb 10 is inclined to overhang the base 11 of the L, so that the upper erd of each longer limb is in alinement wih the end of .the base. The base 11 has a. portion 12 thereof at the longer limb raised toward the limb. This prevents an acute angle between the limb l0 and the base 11. It also forms a gradual enlargement from the passa es 13 to the chambers 14., all oi which are ormed by the zigzag shape of the adjacent baiile plates. It will be noted that the passages 13 are disposed at an :ingle to the longitudinal axis of the chamler, and the lates are so set that the facing convex e ges of adjacent plates prevent straight How of the elastic Huid between said plates.

A transver: :e partition 15 rises from the 'bottom of the chamber 4 in front of the erably a sloping bottom which terminates at its lower j )oint with a valve-controlled conduit 22 thfough which thesediment accumulated inV compartment 16 may be removed. The partition 15 prevents the sediment in the (ompartment 16l from passing into the compartment 17. It also permits the lowering c f the water level therein when cleaning the c impartment of sediment without interfering with the Water-supply conltrol of compal tment 17. This partition also prevents a sudden lowering of the temperature of the water when the compartment 1G is cleaned of sediment. u

A plurality of nozzles 23 are located within the chamber 4 above the compartment 17 through which the 'liquid of the compartment 17 is circulated through the medium of a pump 24, the nozzles breaking up the liquid into a mist within the pathof thel elastic fluid which ilows from the conduit 5 to the conduit 6, The 'entering air, therefore, strikes the mist formed in the chamber -l above the compartment 17. The moist air enters the separator, and due to the alternate contraction andV expansion of the passages formed between the baffle plates of the separator, the speed of the moisture is retarded considerably more than that of the air, due to the difference in-their densities. In consequence a separation takes place between the two. The zigzag shape of the passages also causes themoist air to strike against the surfaces of the baffles and deposit thereupon the excess of moisture which carries the extraneous matter that was in the air when it entered the chamber 4.' The moisture retained in the separator on the surfaces of the baille plates drops into the compartment 16 where the impurities acculnulate at the bottom, while the clean liquid passes over the weir into the chamber 17 to be circulated through the nozzles 23.

I claim: Y

, 1. In a compressible-iluid washer, a separator having a plurality of continuous unobstructed vertical passages enlarged at fintervals to form chambers for varying the speed of flow through the separator.

2. In a compressible-iluid washer, a separator having a plurality of unobstructed vert-ical continuous passages, 4each passage having a plurality of-spaced enlargements forming chambers, each of which presents a wall to the facing portion of thepassage.

3. In a compressible-luid washer, a separator having a plurality of unobstructed continuous passages', each passage having a' plurality of spaced enlargements forming chambers, each of which chambers presents an angularly-shaped wall to the portionof the passage forming an inlet to the chamber.

-l. In a compressible-luid washer, a separator comprising a pluralit of shapedV ular L of which the longer limb is inclined to overhang the base of the L so that the upper ends of the longer limb are in alinement with the ends of the bases, said plates being maintained in parallel, spaced relation to form passages having enlargements therein at suitable intervals.

7. A compressible-uid washer comprising a chamber having an air inlet and an air outlet, a separator in the chamber adjacent the air outlet, a lpartition rising from the bottom of the chamber in front of the separator to form two independent compartments, one below the separator and another in front thereof, means for supplying liquid to the compartment in front of the separator, means for maintaining an overflow from said compartment, an overflow in the partition lwhereby a higher liquid level may be;

maintained in the compartment below the separator, means for forming a liquid mist in the chamber above the ront compartment, and means for circulating liquid from said front compartment through the' means for making the mist. Y

8. A compressible-luid washer comprising a chamber having an air inlet and an air outlet, a partition rlsing from the bottom of the chamber to form two independent liquid compartments below the path of travel of air' in the chamber, said partition having an opening forming an overow from the compartment next to the outlet into that next to the inlet, an overflow for the compartment next to the inlet to maintain the liquid level therein below that of the compartment next to the outlet, andF means for removing sediment from the compartment next to the outlet. l t

9. In a compressible-iiuid washer, a chamber having alining conduits forming an inlet and an outlet for the compressible Huid, a partition in the chamber disposed transversely ofthe alinin'g conduits and formingK at' the bottom of the chamber two independent compartments for non-compressible fluids, an overow from .the compartment next to theinlet conduit for maintaimng a predetermined level therein, an' overow in the partition whereby a higher level is maintained in the other com artment next tothe inlet, means-for sprinkling the liquid ofthe loro said compartment in the path of compressi- 13.0

ble fluid passing through the chamber from the inlet to the separator, and means for discharging l sediment from the other compartment.

chamber having an inlet and an outlet for compressible Huid, a separator in the chamber in the path of the uid 110W from the inlet to the outlet, said chamber having afV 10. In a.V compressible-fluid washer, aA
