No. 200,129. Patented Feb. 12, 1878..
WITNESSES:
IN'VENTIORV UNITED STATES PATENT OEEIoE.
JOHN OAWOOD, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
IMPROVEMENT lN REF'RIGERATORS FOR COOLING BEER KEGS AND BOTTLES.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 200,129, dated February 12, 1878; application filed July 10, 1877.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it knoml that I, JOHN OAWooD, of the city and State of New York, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Refrigerators, of which the following is a specification:
The said invention relates to an improvement in refrigerators, which is intended to be applied chiefly to the cooling of beer in barrels and kegs; and it consists of an icebox that rests upon the barrel-rack, and fits over the keg or barrel that contains the beer, to the shape of which the bottom of the box closely conforms. It is made in two parts, that are hinged to the rack so they may be turned back to permit the removal and replacement of the keg.
The drawing represents a perspective View of a barrel covered with a refrigerator or icebox constructed as I have described, and with one side thrown back upon the rack to show the arrangement of the parts.
The sides, backs, and covers of the two halves of the box, a and b, are made double, and the space between is filled with charcoal, sawdust, or any other suitable non-conducting material.
The rack c is adapted to hold bottles, and
7 it may be replaced with shelves, or any other of the appurtenances of an ordinary ice-box or refrigerator.
The front of the two parts of the box may be fitted with slides that cover over the front of the barrel or keg, so that it may be en-' tirely inclosed and the tap alone visible.
The cocks d d serve to draw oil the water resulting from the melting of the ice, and they may be fitted inside with strainers or a filter.
The brackets e are hinged to the rack w, and their upper ends are loosely held by staples on the sides of the half-boxes, so that when the latter are turned back they are supported by the brackets, and when they are turned again to cover the barrel the brackets are also carried up and held close by the staples. The brackets may also be held close against the boxes by springs placed under their lower ends.
I claim as my invention- 1. The ice-box constructed in two parts, a and b, hinged at the bottom, to open away from each other at the top, substantially as described.
2. The brackets e, hinged to the rack andheld by staples to the boxes, for the purpose of supporting the latter, in the manner described.
JOHN CAWOOD.
