LEVI BUTTER, OF NEWMAN STOWN, PENNSYLVANIA.
' REFRIGERATOR.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 268,434, dated December 5, 1882.
Application filed May 18, 1882. No model.)
' To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, LEVI BUTTER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Newmanstown, in the county of Lebanon and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Refrigerators; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to refrigerators; and it consists of parts and combination of parts, all as will hereinafter be described.
Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 represents a longitudinal vertical sectional view, Fig. 2 a topplan view,0f theice-box with cover (broken away) thrown back; Fig. 3, a transverse vertical section.
A represents the box; B, the cover; 0, the interior of the box, and D the ice-box.
The box is made with double walls, filled with any suitable non-conducting material, and is provided with a door, A, which opens into chamber O. -This chamber is provided with cleats 0 upon eaehside to support shelves or trays c.
The ice-box is of oblong shape, and is provided with double or hollow walls, lined inside with metal, forming a chamber, which serves as a water-vessel, K.
A cock, D for drawing off the water is attached to the outer side of the casing and to a pipe, which connects with a coil, D
The interior-of the box is provided with a metal tray, D, having a slitted bottom, upon which restsithe coil of water-pipes D One end of this coil is connected to the water-chamber K and the other to the pipe passing under the water-chamber at one side and attached to the cock D To protect the coil of pipes from the ice a frame, E, is inserted between the coils, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3.
To the under side of tray D is attached a number of troughs, I ,closed at one end and inclined from the front to the rear of the box, for the purpose of receiving the water from the ice.
Below thelower and open ends ofthetroughs' is a secondary inclined trough, A, attached to the rear wall of chamber 0, to catch the drip from the inclined troughs I.
To the lower end of trough A is attached a waste-pipe, A which passes down through chamber Cl and the bottom of box A to a suitable vessel placed under the box to receive the water. i
The bottom of the ice-box is provided with grooves 11, which tit over tongues d on the top of box A. Box D is also provided with hooks d, which catch over lugs d on the box A for an obvious purpose. (lover B is hinged to the top of the ice-box, and is held in place, when shut, by a catch, 1). Near the center and below handle B is a vent, B which allows the air to escape from the interior of the device.
I am aware that itis old toforni water-chambers in the walls of a refrigerator, that the bottom of ice boxes have been made of pipes having' connections with the water-chamber, and that inclined troughs have been placed below theice-box to catch the waste-water, which passes from the inclined trough to a transverse trough beneath the ends of the first troughs, and-these I do not claim; but
What I do claim is- An ice-box resting upon and removable from the walls of arefrigerating chamber, and having a water-chamber open at top in its walls, a single cover for the ice and water chambers, a coil of pipes restingupon the slatted bottom of the ice-box, said slatted bottom and a series of inclined troughs attached to the bottom of the box, in combination with a refrigerating-chain:
her having an inclined trough on the ice-box and provided with a waste-pipe, all substantially as set forth.
In testimony whereof I aifix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
LEVI BUTTER.
