UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE sPoT'rmG BOARD Don 0. Goodwin, St. Louis, Mo. ,l Application July 5, 1940, serial No. 344,085

6 Claims.

My invention relates to a spotting board, and

more particularly to a device for removing stains and spots from clothing in dry cleaning establishments.

Thisapplication is a continuation-impart of my co-pending application, Serial No. 310,320, iiled December 21, 1939, which has since been abandoned. I

In a dry cleaning establishment clothes are subjected to the action of a dry cleaning solvent such as a hydrocarbon known as Stoddards solvent, carbon tetrachloride, and the like. These organic solvents will dissolve most oily or greasy stains, but do not touch Water soluble stains and certain spots which are neither oil soluble or water soluble, such as iodine stains, rust spots, ink spots, etc. i

In the conventional dry cleaning practice, the garment is first dry cleaned and then passed to a spotter who treats the spots which are not removed by the dry cleaning process .with various chemicals'to attempt to remove them. The methods employed frequently damage the fabric or discolor it so that while the iinished result is better than that which exists with the spot present, it still leaves much to be desired.

One object of my invention is to provide a novel apparatus for removing spots from fabrics.

Another object of my invention is to provide a novel apparatus for quickly, conveniently and expeditiously removing spots' from fabrics without injury to the same.

Other and further objects of my inventlon will appear from the following description.

In theaccompanying drawing which forms onds. I have permitted Le Pages glue to dry on fabric to such an extent that if the fabric were bent it would break the fibers. I have removed this dried glue spot within ve seconds by means of my apparatus.

part of the instant specification and which is to be read in conjunction therewith, and in which like reference numerals are used to indicate like parts in the various views:

Fig. 1 is a side elevation partly in section showing a spotting board embodying my invention.

Fig. 2is a sectional view taken on 2--2,l Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional view taken on the line 3-3, Fig. 1.

My invention revolves around apparatus capable of producing a controlled supply of a novel detergent, namely, soap impregnated steam. The action of the soap-charged steam is physical and mechanical, but it enables me to rapidly and expeditiously remove spots heretofore removable only with much labor and some injury to the fabric. I have, for example, been `able to remove an iodine spot within four secthe line Referring now to the drawing, my apparatus comprises essentially a base member I provided with a standard 2, supporting a spotting board 3. The spotting board may be of any suitable construction which will permit the passage of steam and hot air therethrough. I prefer to use a Monel metal Wire cloth 4 to form the Working surface of the spotting board. Integral with the standard 2 is a chamber 5. The lower por- 5 tion of the chamber is iitted with a. baille 6 acting as a stand-pipe, as will be hereinafter more fully pointed out.

A heat exchange coil 'I runs through the chamber 5, as can readily be seen by'reference to Fig. l. elevated pressure is admitted to pipe 8, which comunicates with a reducing valve 9.' The reducing valve is set to a predetermined pressure, preferably in the neighborhood of pounds per square inch. The steam at controlled pressure leaves the reducing valve 9 through pipe i0, which communicates with the lower portion of the chamber 5 through lJort II. gauge I2 communicates with the interior of chamber 5 through pipe I3.

A porous partition, such as a wire screen I4,

is positioned adjacent the upper end of the l chamber 5. The screen I4 supports cotton toweling or other suitable padding, I5. The pad- .i ding I5 is adapted to be impregnated with a soap valve I8, through perforated distribution pipe i9.'

The padding I5 is thus soaked or impregnated with the detergent or soapy material.

A pipe 20 communicates with the chamber 5 above the soap impregnated padding I5. The pipe 20v passes downwardly and communicates with a valve 2|. 'Ihe valve 2| is the self-shutting type adapted to be opened by a lever 22 /acting upon valve stem 23. j

The discharge of the valve 2| communicates with a liexible hose 26 by means of pipe 2t, check valve 2'5 and elbow 21. The ilexible hose 26 terminates in a nozzle 28.v It will be seen that Whenever valve 2| is opened steam will flow from the chamber through the soap impregnated pad.

ding through pipe 2U, valve 2|, pipe 24, check valve 25. elbow 21, hose 26 to the nozzle 28.

The lever 22 is connected by chain 29 to a Steam from any suitable source and at A pressure.

ever valve 34 is opened steam from below the soap impregnated pad l5 will pass through the valve 34, through pipe 35', through T 36'I through check valve 25, through elbow 21, to the flexible conduit 26, to the nozzle ,28. A chain -39 is connected to the lever and to a bell crank lever 39 secured to a shaft 40. The shaft V4|) runs under the base I. A pedal 4| is secured to the shaft 40 so that upon depression of the pedal 4| the shaft 40 will be rotated to rotate thevbell crank lever 39 to open valve 34 through its operating lever 35 and the chain 33.

The coil 1 communicates Witha source of compressed air, preferably at a pressure between 100-150 lbs., through pipe 31. The outlet of the coil 1 is controlled by a valve 42, which is operatedby a lever 43. The lever 43 is connected by a chain 44 to a bell crank lever 45 secured to a shaft 46. The shaft 46 runs under the base l. A pedal 41 is connected to the shaft 46 so that whenever the pedal 41 is operated the shaft 46 will rotate to rotate bell crank lever to open the valve 42 through chain 44 and the operating lever 43. 'I'he outlet port of'valve 42 is connected by pipe 49 toan elbow 56. The elbow 50 communicates through pipe 5| to T 52 which communicates with the elbow21. It will be seen that whenever valve 42 is operated, air under pressure will flow through heat exchange coil l', through valve 42, through pipe 49, through elbow 56, through pipe .5L through T 52, through elbow 21, through due to loss of heat through the chamber walls and through heat exchange with air in coil 1. 'Ihe condensate 53 will collect in the bottom of the chamber 5 and finally overflow at the top of baiile 6 through passage 54 formed by the baule 6 and the Walls of the chamber 5. The bottom of passage 54 communicates with a steam trap 55 through pipe 56, and excess condensate is withdrawn from the steam trap 55 through pipe 51. A pipe 58 communicates with chamber 5 below the top of the baffle 6, as can readily be seen by reference to Figs. l and 3. 'I'he pipe 59 is controlled by valve 59 provided with a handle 66, operated by an extension rod 6|'. provided with a handle 62.

The outlet of valve 59 communicates with pipe 20 by means of pipe 63. The connection is made with pipe 20 just before pipe 20 is attached to the inlet of valve 2|. The arrangement is such that when valve 2| is opened and soap-saturated steam flows down through pipe 20, it will induce a flow of water of condensation into the stream of steam and super-saturate it with water. The wetness of the steam, that is, the amount of entrained water that is drawn into the steam is is closed, no water will flow into the soap-laden steam. The spotter operating my spotting board can control the amount of water by operating valve 59 through the extension rod handle 62.

It will be noted that port I| is below the level of the condensate 53 so that the incoming steam must bubble up through the body of condensate 'thus further aiding wetting the steam which flows through the soap-saturated padding |5.

A drain pan 64 is placed under the Monel metalwire cloth 4 of the spotting board surface, so that the steam flowing through the fabric being treated may condense. This condensate flows through a drain pipe 65 and outwardly through a pipe 66 to a suitable disposal connection. Ihe drain pipe 65 also acts to support a work guard 61, which is adjustably positioned by means of a clamp 68. The handle 69 may be operated to secure the clamp at a desired height on the pipe 65.. The guard 61 supports the remaining portion of the garment and prevents it from becoming soiled by touching the floor of the estab-4 lishment in which my spotting board assembly is situated,

In operation, the chamber i6 is filled with a suitable soap or detergent solution and the valve i9 opened to permit it to flow to the padding I5. High pressure steam is supplied to pipe 8 and the pressure within the chamber 5 is checked by gauge |2. It is assumed that sufficient condensate is present in the chamber 5 from previous use. The garment to be spotted is placed over the spotting board with the spot on the Monel metal screen surface. 'Ihe nozzle is held immediately above the spot and the foot pedal 32 is depressed. This opens valve 2| and permits soap-laden steam to act upon the spot. The amount of moisture in the steam has been previously governed to that desired by adjustment of the valve 59. Changes in the adjustment may be made if it is desired to use a wetter or drier i steam, as .the case may be.

controlled by opening valve 59. When valve 59 75 After the spot has been removed, there will be a slight amount of moisture remaining on the garment. The foot pedal 41 is then depressed and this opens valve 42, permitting the air under pressure and heated by the heat exchange coil 'i to evaporate the moisture. Usually this is sufficient to remove all traces of the spot. In cases where the spot is old or of a particularly resistant nature, it may be necessary to repeat the treatment. Sometimes with certain fabrics a slight amount of dried soap will remain on the garment. When this occurs the foot pedal 4| is depressed, permitting clear steam to flow through the soap deposit, washing it away. This treatment will in turn leave a slight amount of moisture at the spot and this is dried by again pressing foot pedal 41, permitting the hot air to evaporate the moisture which is left.

It will be observed that the soap-laden steam, the clear steam and the hot air all pass out of flexible conduit 26 on nozzle 28. This precludes any water of condensation collecting in the iiexible conduit since the hot air is always used last, evaporating any traces of moisture which remain in the flexible conduit. If separate conduits were used the steam remaining inthe conduit would condense between spotting operations with the result that a slug of water would be ejected which might ruin a garmenty susceptible to water, such as a fine evening dress or the like.

It will be seen that I have accomplished the objects of my invention. I have provided a spotting board enabling spots to be removed in a sim' ple, expeditious and convenient manner, without injury to the finestfabric. The amount of moisture in the soap-laden steam can be readily controlled by thevalve 59, and it is to be understood, p

of course, that in garments susceptible to injury by excessive moisture, the valve 59 may be vclosed completely. The arrangement is such that the passing ofthe steam through the body of condensate and the positioning of the heat exchange coil within the steam chamber is suiilcient to cause the steam to be wet enough to become properly impregnated with the detergent solution inv the padding through which it must iiow. The

reducing valve 9 maintains a predetermined pressure within the chamber 5 at all times.

It will be understood that certain features and sub-combinations are of utility-and may be employed without reference to other features and sub-combinations. This is contemplated by and is within the scope of-my claims. It is further obvious that various changes may be made in details within the scope of my claims without departing from the spirit of my invention. It is, thereforeftobe understood that my invention is not to be limited to the specific details shown and described.
