I KITCHEN CABINET INCINERATOR Filed May 5, 1947 2 SHEETS- SHEET a l INVENToR. z/m/vLEAgLE ATTORNEY Patented *q eb. 5, 195i?` UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,584,382 KITCHEN CABINET INCiNERA'ro'RA Guyon L. Earle, Forest Hills, N. Y. Application May 5, 1947, Serial No. 746,119
11 Claims. 1
This invention relates to incinerators and more specically to an incinerator which is adapted to form a part of a utility or kitchen unit.
It is an object of this invention to provide an incinerator which forms one of the component parts oi a utility or kitchen unit.
In a copending application of the present inventor, Serial No. 629,680, filed` November 19,
1945, whichy application is now abandoned, there' is disclosed a utility unit. of the set-back or L- shaped type. This unit has a lowerportion including the lower part of a space heater and a clothes washer and a deep freeze unit, an intermediate portion including another part of the space heater and cabinet space, and an upper portion enclosing the upper part of the space heater and its accompanying flue pipes and having, in addition, storage space.` A long table-iop member is located on top of the lower portion and in front of the intermediate portionof the utility unit. The present invention, in one of its primary aspects, relates to the utilization of a portion of the cabinet space in the intermediate and upper portions of the utility unit for incinerating purposes.
In another of its aspects, the invention relates to the utilization of space above and behind other units of the setback type, such as stoves and cabinet units for example, for incinerating purposes.
It is another object of this invention to provide an incinerator occupying the intermediate and upper portions of an L-shaped or set-back utilityuor kitchen unit.
It is still another object of this invention to provide a simple, convenient and cheap incineraor space heater, an incinerator adjacent thereto and a common flue system for the heater and the incinerator.
It is still another objectof this invention to provide a novel combined incinerator and table-top unit.
These and related objects are attained in accordance with the invention by providing, as an illustrative embodiment thereof, a utility unit of the L-'shaped or set-back typev (that is, onein which the front of the intermediate portion there,- of and the front of the upper portion thereof are 'placed to the rear (or set-back from) the front of the lower portion of the unit) having a tabletop member above the lower portion and in front of the intermediate portion and including in the intermediate and upper portions of the unit an incinerator. The incinerator has a ue system which may connect with that of the space heater if the utility unit includes one. The incinerator is provided with threev doors, ay feed door, a combustion chamber door and a clean-out door. The feed door is located in the lower part of the upper portion of the utility unity and is hidden by the upper cabinet door while theI combustion chamber door and the clean-out door are hidden by any access door located in the intermediate portion of the unit immediately above the table-top member which provides a convenient resting place for refuse, garbage, etc., prior to and while it is being placed in. the. incinerator.
The invention will be more readily understood by referring to the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings forming a part thereof, in which:
Fig.. 1 is a, perspective vieu1 of an L-shaped or set-back utility unit in accordance with the invention including an incinerator in the intermediate and upper portions thereof;
Fig- 2 is an enlarged cross-sectional View of the i operating portion of an incinerator unit;
Fig. 3 is a perspective view of an incinerator unit in which the lower portion thereof houses a clothes washing machine;
Fig. 4 is a, perspective View of an incinerator unit. in which the lower portion thereof comprises a stove; and
Fig-5 is a perspective. view of. an incinerator unit in which the lower portion thereof comprises shelved or drawer cabinet space, the access doors to the incinerator being on the sidefrather than the front of the unit.
Referring more specifically to the. drawings, Fig. 1 shows, by way of example andv in perspective, a utility unit IE) in accordance with the invention including an incinerator unit I-lof novelarrangement. The utility unit I0 is of the L- shaped or set-back type, that is one in which the front of the intermediate portion I2 thereofl and the front of the upper portion i3. thereof are placed tothe rear of the front of the lower portionV I4 of the unit. The lower portion i4 com-- prises the lower part I5 of a space heater, a clothes washer I6, and all or the lower portion I1 ci. a deep freeze unit. The intermediate portion IZ of the unit I0. comprises the intermediate portion I8 of the space heater', the intermediate portion I9 of the incinerator unit Il, and a cabinet or the. upper portion 2li oi the deep freeze unit'. The upper portion i3 of. the unit l comprises the upper portion 2l of the space heater, the upper por-- tion 22 of the incinerator unit, and shelved cabinet space 23. A table-top member 24 is placed above the lower portion I4 and in front of the intermediate portion |2 and has openings therein for the soap hole 25 of the clothes washer and access door 26 for the deep freeze unit. The whole unit preferably rests on a recessed base 21. A complete utility unit of the type briey described above, eXcept that a, cabinet replaces the incinerator portions I9 and 22, is 'disclosed in the above-identified Earle application.
Referring now to Figs. 2 to 5 inclusive, in addition to Fig. 1, the incinerator unit includes a lower portion which may be a clothes washer I6 as in Figs. 1 and 3, a stove 28 as in Fig. 4 or shelved or drawer cabinet space 29 as in Fig. 5, and intermediate and upper portions i9 and 22, respectively, which are shown in Fig. 2 regardless of the type of lower portion used.
In the intermediate portion I9 is positioned a combustion chamber 30 above a gas, electric or liquid fuel burner 3| suitable for `oil or gas operation. In the combustion chamber there is placed a wire mesh basket 32 for holding the garbage, paper, etc. being consumed. This refuse is fed into the incinerator by means of the feed door 33 into the insulated feed hopper 34 above the basket 32. The basket 32 rests on supporting members 35 and can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement. The heat and smoke goes up the stack or nue 36 which can, if desired, connect with the flue 31 of the house or space heater, as shown in Fig. 1. The ue 36 passes up through a shelved cabinet member 38 above the hopper 34. Access to the combustion chamber to light the burner 3| or for cleaning purposes is obtained by means of the combustion chamber door 4l. Below this door is a clean-out door 42 through which ashes, dirt, etc. can be removed. This door 42 is conveniently placed just above the table-top member 24 so that in order to clean out the incinerator it is only necessary to spread a piece of newspaper, for example, on the table-top member 24 and scrape the ashes into it. This is a great improvement over the usual wall incinerator where a receptacle must be held up close to the clean-out door and the ashes swept into it or into a dustpan which rests on the oor (requiring stooping to clean out the incinerator) The table-top member 24 also serves as a convenient means of supporting refuse as it is being put into the incinerator through the door 33. I
An outer door 39 covers both doors 4| and 42 and another outer door 40 covers the door 33 and also the shelved cabinet space 38. The outer doors 38 and 4U can be given the same appearance as corresponding doors in the other elements of the utility unit l0 for greater ornamental beauty of the unit l0 as a whole. If desired the door 40 can be omitted (as in Figs. 3, 4 and especially when the shelved cabinet space 38 is not furnished with or associated with the incinerator unit. If desired, both doors 4| and 42 can be omitted and the single door 39 used alone. The double door arrangement is preferred, however, for greater cleanliness, beauty and for insulation purposes. The door 40 in Fig. 2 can be in two parts hinged at the sides and opening and closing at the center; as shown in Fig. 1. When the incinerator forms part of a unit, the outer doors 40 and 39 are given the same curvature as other doors in the same respective portions of the unit, as indicated in Fig. 1.
The incinerator of this invention may be a part of a utility unit (as in Fig. 1), as a part of a kitchen unit, or furnished as a separate unit using any desired appliance or cabinet in the lower unit. The various doors 33, 39, 40, 4| and 42 may be at the front (as shown in Figs. 1 to 4, inclusive), or at the side (as shown in Fig. 5). Moreover, some of these doors may be at the front and some at the side.
Various other modifications can be made in the embodiments described above without departing from the spirit of the invention, the scope of which is indicated in the appended claims.
