H. D. SCHRADER GAS Burnham` Filed nay 31. 1927 Patented @et 9, 1928.-

xrThis invention relates to improvements gas burners.

a gas burner which will have a great heating capacity and a high efficiency and which will be of simple and substantial construct-ion.v

It is a further'object. of thisinvention to produce a gas burner combining two separately operating burners one of `which employs a Venturi tube and in which the air is mixed of the tube andthe other of which discharges the gas near the tip of the former burner and vfor which the air is inspirated by the action of the gas as it leaves the burner.

It is a still further object of lthis invention t'o produce a gas burner of great'iexibility use in connection with small commercial appliances and house heating furnaces and boilers.

come apparent as the description proceeds are attained'by means of an larrangement and -a combination of parts that will now be described in detail and reference for this purpose will now be had to the accompanying drawings in which the preferred embodiment Y of my invention has been shown and in which Fig. 1 is a 'vertical diametrical section through the lower end ofthe furnace, show'- ing my im roved burner in place therein;

Fig. 2 is a section taken on line 2-2, Fig. 1; Fig- 3 is a detail showing the construction of the gas adjusting valve member;

Fig. 4 is a vertical longitudinal section through the burner;

Fig. 5 is a section vtaken on line 5v5, Fig. 4;

Fig.,7 is a section taken on line 7-7, Fig. 4,

My improved gas burner has been illustrated in connection with a furnace whose cylindrical wall has been designated by numeral 1. The lower portion of this furnace has been shown as lined with alayer of fire brick or clay 2. The bottom of the v{irebox' is formed by aA circular slab 3 of 'fire' cla-y lfrom whose center a square or other shaped column '4 extends upwardly. The slab, 3'is rovided with two parallel passages 5 and 6 which communicate respectively with the verV tical'openings 7 and 8 of column 4. The upper end of column 4 has a conical recess 9 which supports the inner ends ofthe radial bars 10 whose outer ends are supported on the Application 'filed Hay i 31,

Itis the object of this invention to produce` with the ygas at or near the intake end e that shall be particularly well adapted for The. above and other objects that may. be-

Gas BURNER- 1927. serial No. 195,285.

upper end of the cylindrical wall 2. 4A c'ollection of" broken tire brick or otherhighly vrefractory material 11 is supported. on the barslO and'when these are heated to inc'an- 60. descence, they Aresemble a bed of live coals f andserve to store and to radiate. heat. The

furnace walll and lining 2 are provided with registering openings 12 for the reception of` the burner assembly which will now be described in detail. The burnerconsists of a Venturi tube 13 whose end -is provided with a transverse wall having a plurality-of openings 14. The outer s'urfaceof the flared end of this tube has a 70 cylindrical portion l5 which is ada ted toreceive one end of the mixing hea 1 6.- The" transverse'wall of the Venturi tube has a hub 17 that projects rearwardly and whose -outer surface is threaded for the reception of the 'air regulating plate or shutter. 18 which will be moved towardsfor away from the transversewallwhen it is rotated and which can be Aclamped 'in adjusted position by means of a' set screw 19. Hub 17 has a 80 cylindrical opening withinwhich is slidably mounted the primaryv burner regulating valve body 20. This body has a.cylindrioal` axial opening 21 which communicates with thetransverse opening that passes through S5 the lateral extensions 22 and 23. A nozzle 24 has a threaded engagement with' the wall of opening 21. This nozzle has an axial opening 25 that terminates in the smaller opening 26. A stem 27 has a threaded portion .9'0 2S hich cooperates with a threaded ope ing 29 in the outer end of the wall body. A lock nut 30 serves to hold this stem in adjusted position. Stem 27 has the Asame outside diameter as the o ening 25 and 1s pro- 95 vided with a tip 31 which is of the same size as the opening 26 and is lutedlike a reamer. The maximum diameter of the tip 31 is less than that of the stem 27 and terminates in a shoulder 32. That portion of the stem adjacentr the shoulder 32v is provided with v tapering grooves v33 which form passages for the gas. When the stem is rotated so as to -move into the nozzle 24, the area through which thev gas may flow is gradually de-- creased until when the grooves 33 are en- 'tirely within the nozzle the flow of gas 'will' be' entirely shut oit. If hole -26 hecomes stopped, it canbe opened by turning the stem 27 until the point 31 extends entirely 11o throughthe opening 26. The position of vstem 27 is adjusted tosuit the conditions under .which the burner operates; The inner en d of the Venturi tube is threaded, as indi- I cated by numeral 34. .A burner head body has Ca central hub portion 35 which has a nected with the cylindrical part 39 and its rear end connected with the front end of the mixing head 16. The burner head body, nthe pipe 41 andthe mixing head 16 are iirst assembled after which theVenturi tube isinserted throughthe open end rof the as sembly `and screwed into the threaded opening 36. A gasket 42 islocatedon thecylindric'al surface v15`between the end ofthe .mixing `head andthe external shoulder Yat the end of surface 15. When the'parts are lar chamber is ormedbetween pipe 41 and tube 13. A burner nozzle 43. has one end Y providedjwith a threaded section that envgages with the threads in opening 37' and has a conical vsurface 44 that is parallel with theparallel surface forming the end o vpart 40. .By means of a washer'45 of sultable thickness the lconical surface on the nozzle andthe cooperating surface on part40 be spaced Many distance desired so as to obtain an annular opening 46 for theescepe of gas, which will lowtherefrom in a conical sheet represented by lines 47 and 48 The assembly that' has just been descrlbed is located within a cylindrical casing .formed A by a cylindrical member 49 which is smaller in -diameter 'than 'and locatedLconcentrically within asimilar cylinder 50. The twO Cylindrical members 49 *and 50 are held 1n spaced relation at their'inner ends by a ring 51 and at the other ends by 1 a.l casting having a cylin -cal section 52 and" a cylindrical iange 53^and an inclined wall 54, that connects `one ndof iiange- 53 with 4.the center -portion oft the-l;cylindrical sec;-

tion 52. A damper 55 is mounted for rotation on the outerv surface 0f the inclinedwall 54.and is provided withopemngs that-correspond in" osition and size to simi lar openings in the inclined wall 54. By nothe ring 55 the eifective areas through air may enter between members49- and 50--c'an be adjusted td any' extent desired.-

.Secured to pipe 41 is affhub v57 a -plu'-,` rality .of radially pro'ecti'g kes or blades 58 tha t resemble fan lades. e' outer ends of these bladesengage the inner-surface of f is nom" g' ,am sans ong '- nited at the 'burner 't'.p`43,l forms a register with the latter. By `rotating plate 64 the elective area. of openings 63 can be.

altered as desired.l Located within the front end of the cylindrical member 49 is a ring 65 of @refractory material. This ring has its Vinner surface curved in the manner. shown in Fig.4 and/the surface marked X. is parf allelf with lines 47 and 4 8;

Gas under the appropriate pressure isconducted to .the device through pipel 66, which is connected with the proper gas supply.

Pipe'66 is connected to the mixing head 16 at 467 and is proridedwith yan electr1callyoper ated valve 68,.that can be controlledfrom a ;dlstance, and with a; pressure controlled valve `assembled as described, an' elongated annu`V 69 which Vis connected'Y withthe boiler` by means of v'pipes-70.l A lever or arm 7l has one end connected with the'va-lve mechanism of valve 69 and the other connected with the 'pla-te 64 and rotates the plate so as Vto close the openings '63 whenever valve 69 closes.

A' ipe 72 has one. end connected .with pipe66.

-stop cock 74 controls theflowof gas through this pipe. Another pipeV 7 5 has oneend con. nectedwith' the mixing head at-76 and the, other connected with member 2 0 at2 2.. This pipe provided with a check valve'77 t-ht permits to flow-from the interior of mixn head to the regulating valve but pre flowing inl the .opposite` direcvente` tion. i

By combining the burners in the manner shown, a eaterflexibility is'obtained Athan if urneriwere used as with the two burners these can be `so adjusted that a quick increase inthe heat can be obtained' `when both are operating and when the .primary biirner is used alone, this can be regulated tain the temperature at the desired value l after 'it has been brought there by the combined aetionof both burners.'
