ACETYLENE GENERATOR Filed Oct. 31, 1931 INVENTORQ Weam moRNEYs Patented Feb. 26, 1935 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE to Oxweld Acetylene Company, a
of West. Virginia Application October 31,
15Claims.
The invention is a carbide/feed for acetylene generators of the carbide-to-water type.
The more important objects of the invention are to provide an acetylene generator with the following features:
A feed that will maintain more uniform pressure within the generator regardless of the rate of gas consumption.
A feed that willoperate only while gas is being drawn from the generator.
A feed that will operate only when the gas pressure in the generator is below that for which the feed is adjusted.
A feed that will operate only when the gas pressure in the generator is below that for which the feed is adjusted and gas is also being drawn from the generator.
A feed that will not operate from a reduction of pressure alone.
A feed. that will vary the carbide feeding rate according to the amount of gas being drawn from the generator.
A feed that will vary the carbide feeding rate according to the gas pressure within the generator.
Other aims, objects, and novel features will appear in the following specification and the accompanying illustration, in which Fig. 1 is a fragmentary horizontal section of an acetylene generator showing my improved feed, and V Fig. 2 is an elevation of a generator partially in section showing my improved feed therein.
The feed comprises means for moving the carbide valve at a rate varying with the amount of gas being drawn from the generator and means for further varying the rate by the amount of gas within the generator.
The means for moving the carbide valve is a motor driven by the gas drawn from the generator, and the means for varying the rate of movement is a diaphragm responsive to the pressure within the generator.
The motor has a shaft that is driven by gas drawn from the generator, and consequently, its rate of movement is proportional to the rate at which gas is drawn from the generator.
The motor shaft is connected with the carbide valve by a variable transmission comprising a lever having an arm of variable length, and the diaphragm is mechanically connected with this transmission to vary the length of this arm inversely to the pressure in the generator. Therefore, the carbide valve is moved only while gas is being drawn from the generator, and the rate of corporation 1931, Serial No. 572,408
movement is varied both by the amount of gas being drawn from the generator and the amount of gas within the generator, and either means for varying the rate of movement may stop it altogether.
One example of my feed comprises a fluid pressure motor 10 firmly secured within a generator casing 11 by suitable means not shown. This motor 10, has a reciprocating motor shaft 12 connected by a motor link 13 to the driven arm of a motor lever 14 of the first order that is carried by a motor lever fulcrum 15 mounted on a motor lever fulcrum support 16 that is carried by motor 10. The driving arm of lever 14 is provided with a drive link adjusting slot 17 in which a drive link adjusting pivot 18 is carried. A drive link 19 connects this drive link adjusting pivot 18 with the outer end of a carbide valve arm 20 carried by a carbide feed valve 21.
A pressure regulator 22 of a type well known in the art is attached to the outside of casing 11 by conduit 23 extending therethrough. A pressure responsive diaphragm 24 within the regulator is connected by a regulator rod 25 with the driven arm of a regulator lever 26 of the first order carrled by a regulator lever fulcrum 27 on a regulator lever fulcrum support 28 rigidly secured to conduit 23 within casing 11. The driving arm of lever 26 is connected by a control link 29 with the central portion of drive link 19.
The carbide feed valve 21 is located in the outlet of a carbide hopper in the upper portion of a generator casing 11. The valve is carried by the upper end of a vertical carbide valve shaft 31 that is journalled in a carbide feed valve support 32 carried by hopper 30, and a carbide valve arm 20 is-rigidly attached to the lower end of shaft 31.
The upper surface of carbide feed valve 21 has the form of a truncated cone and this surface is roughened by suitable means such as flutes 33. This valve 21 is located in outlet 34 of hopper in such a manner that no carbide will feed. past the valve when it is stationary, and hopper 30 is provided with a shield 35 to relieve valve 21 of part of the weight of the carbide in hopper 30.
Pressure regulator 22 is provided with a conventional regulator spring 36 to balance the gas pressure on the diaphragm, and an adjusting handle 3'7 by which the tension of the spring may be varied.
Gas in being drawn from the generator passes through motor 10 to generator outlet 38 and the movement of this gas causes motor shaft 12 to reciprocate. This movement is transmitted by link 13 to lever 14 causing it to rock on its fulcrum 15. The movement of lever 14 is transmitted to carbide valve 21 by drive link 19 and carbide valve arm 20, thereby imparting to the valve a reciprocal rotary motion. The rate or amplitude of this motion or movement will be proportional to the rate or amount of gas being drawn from the generator through motor 10 and obviously when no gas is being drawn from the generator the valve will not be moved.
The rate at which carbide feed valve 21 is moved is further controlled by the position of pivot 18 in drive link adjusting slot 17. This position is controlled by diaphragm 24 of pressure regulator 22 through regulator rod 25, regulator lever 26, and control link 29. Diaphragm 24 is controlled by the pressure within'the generator and this pressure is controlled by the tension of regulator spring 36 which is adjusted by handle 3'1.
When the gas within the generator rises to a pressure for which the regulator 22 is set, diaphragm 24 will have moved outward against the tension of spring 36 and moved adjusting drive link pivot 18 substantially in alinement with motor lever fulcrum 15. In this position although gas may be drawn from the generator, no movement of motor 10 will be transmitted to carbide valve 21; When gas pressure within the generator is reduced, regulator spring 36 will force diaphragm 24 inward and this will move drive link adjusting pivot 18 toward the outer end of drive link adjusting slot 1'/, and then when gas is drawn from the generator the movement of motor 10 will be transmitted to valve 21. The ratio of movement will bevaried by the pressure on diaphragm 24, and consequently by the position of pivot 18 in slot 17. The connection between diaphragm 24 and drive link 19 is arranged so that the lower the pressure in the generator the higher the ratio of movement between motor 10 and valve 21, and conversely, the higher the pressure within the generator, the lower the ratio of movement.
As my improved carbide feed is adapted to vary the rate of movement of the carbide feed valve 21 according to the amount of gas being drawn from the generator and also according to the pressure within the generator, it will maintain a more uniform pressure within the generator than feeds used heretofore.
As carbide outlet 34 of hopper 30 controlled by feed valve 21 is not variable in size all danger of the valve 21 being accidentally held open is obviated. This eliminates all possibility of fortuitous feed and dangerous or wasteful high pressures within the generator.
The preferred form of motor 10 is disclosed in my co-pending application, Serial No. 570,929.
It is understood that the various joints of the mechanism are of conventional design. unless otherwise described. These joints may be of the type having a bolt or pin passing loosely through the connected parts and held in place by one or more nuts or cotter pins. Furthermore, similar and equivalent joint structures may be employed.
Where no specific material for the various ele- .ments has been described it will be understood that the material employed is that used in conventional structures and that the description has been omitted for the sake of simplicity. Also, whether a material has been described or not it is understood that other conventional or equivalent material may be substituted.
While the preferred embodiment of the invention is shown, with preferred means for transmit ting movement from the motor to the carbide valve, and preferred means of varying the rate of this movement, it is understood that other and equivalent means for transmitting the movement may be employed and that the component parts may be arranged in a manner different from that shown.
These and other changes, alterations, and substitutions may be made without departing from the spirit of the invention or the scope of the claims.
