an upward path without eddies, and without permitting the vortex to entrain previously separated solids which may be settling down the periphery of the discharge chamber l0. Louvers l6 permit solids which are thrown against the baflle plate by the sudden change of direction of the air in the vortex to pass through the baffle and down toward the removal spout 14. Solid material is aided in passing to spout l4 by the spiraled fin ll leading downwardly, alongthe walls of the dischargechamber 1.0 .50 as to prevent disturbance. The relatively pure air escapes from the rising column at the center of the vortex through the discharge pipe ll. Adjustably and centrally placed near the bottom open end of the air discharge pipe is cone l8, apex inverted, the sides of which are provided with a multiplicity of louvers [9 to act as a skimming device by passing the relatively pure air at the center of the whirling ascending column.
Placed radially in the discharge pipe II are a plurality of radial fins 20, preferably four, so secured that they form a support for the upper end of rod 2|, which in turn acts as support for cone l8 and baille I5, the lower end of rod 2| being supported by bracket 2"). As the whirling column ascends centrally and approaches the air discharge pipe, skimming cone l8 performs the double function of diverting outwardly the fluid containing fine dust and allowing the pure air to escape up the discharge pipe, means for said escape being provided by the multiplicity of radially extending skimming louvers l9 which open against the direction of the vortex. As the whirling column of pure air ascends the discharge pipe II, it encounters baiiie plates 20 which stop all whirling motion. When the whirling central column, as; explained above,
ascends to the skimming cone, the fluid entraining fine dust being heavier, is at the outside and tends to remain in spaced relation to the cone. Encircling the discharge pipe I I an intermediate sleeve 22, secured centrally to the top of cylinder 9, extends downwardly and opens into the cylinder, 9 at a point somewhat below the air discharge cylinder, thus providing an annular column through which the fluid entraining fine dust passes simultaneously with the passing of the pure air up the discharge pipe. A section 24 of the upper wall of sleeve 22 is depressed to form passage 23 through which 'the air re-enters cylinder 9 at a point tangentially located at the inner periphery of the annular separating space opposite the point at which the inlet pipe joins The ascending dust laden fluid passes through this opening and joinsthe incomingrfluid to repeat'the cycle. In this manner the partially cleansed fluid is returned and only the purest component in each cycle is able to escape through the air discharge pipe.
There exists a definite correlation between the maximum emciency of the separator and the axially spaced relation of base 26 of discharge pipe ll to v the lower end 21 of sleeve 22. This relationship is a. variable factor dependent upon the type of material to be separated, and as one efliciency for any material likely to be intro-' duced in the separator, pipe II has axially extending slots 28 through which bolts 29 extend to adjustably fasten pipe II to annular bracket 30,
saidfbracket being secured to the .casing of chamber 9.
