SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 307,847, dated November 11. 188
Application filed July 16, 1883. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, ROBERT E. DIETZ, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Burners for Oil-Stoves, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.
My invention relates especially to burners employed in hydrocarbon-oil-burning stoves, and has for its object the production of a device wherein the wick-tube plate may be firmly secured to its seat upon the oil-pot or readily removed therefrom, and wherein danger from the escape of gas or vapor from the oilpot around the wick-tube plate is overcome.
To attain the desired ends my invention consists, essentially, in a frame the inner portion whereof has an inwardly-turning edge, arranged in such a manner as to form a secure seat or receptacle for a packing-gasket, of asbestus or equivalent material, extending entirely around the frame. Upon this gasket is seated the wick-tube frame or plate, said plate being securely held in place by Wire rods extending across the face of the plate and through perforations in the surrounding frame prepared for their reception.
As heretofore constructed and arranged, the wick-tube plate in burners of the class to which my invention relates has been held in place upon the oil pot or stove by thumb-nuts or similar contrivances, usually at each corner of the plate; but this method is objectionable, for the reason. that when the plate becomes heated it expands, and, being rigidly held at each extremity, rises up in the center, leaving an opening therebeneath, through which gas and vapor escape from the oil-pot, extinguishing the flame or causing more serious difficulties. By my method of securing the plate in place it is free to expand and move slightly in a horizontal position or direction, and will not leave its seat upon the packing. The wire pins or rods are easy to remove, and if lost may be more readily replaced than thumb-nuts.'
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a plan view of my improved burner, and Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional view at line at w of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of a fragment of the frame, packing, and burner-plate, showing the location and arrangement of all the parts. Fig. 4 is a central cross-sectional view at right angles with the line w 00, Fig. 1, of the device attached to an oil-reservoir.
Like letters of reference, wherever they oc cur, indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
A is the outside portion of the metal frame, which is soldered or otherwise secured to the oil-pot.
B is the inner portion of the frame, bent over A at the top, and having an inwardlyinclined edge, 6, upon the interior of the frame, the two portions being soldered together.
If desired, the entire frame might be made of cast metal in a single piece, instead of sheet metal in two pieces, the same general form being observed. p
G is a packing-gasket, of asbestus or equivalent material, held in place upon frame B by the inwardly-inclined edge I), said packing extending entirely around the frame.
D is the wick-tube plate wherein the wicktubes E are secured, and F are the ratchet shafts for manipulating the wicks.
G are wire rods or pins passing through perforations H in the frame A B, holding plate D firmly in place upon the packing.
Having now fully described my invention, what I claim as new therein, and desire to se cure by Letters Patent, 1's- 1. In a burner for oil-stoves, the wick-tube plate held in place by pins or rods passing thereover and through perforations in a surrounding frame attached to the reservoir, substantially as shown and described.
2. The combination, with a frame adapted and arranged to be secured to an oil-pot, of a wick-tube plate, D, and pins G, substantially as and for the uses and purposes shown and described.
3. In a burner of the character herein specified, a frame secured to the oil-pot, and hav- In testimony that I claim the foregoing I I0 have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two witnesses.
ing a packing-gasket, as set forth, in combination with a Wick-tube plate and horizontal pins, substantially as shown and described.
4. In a stove-burner of the character herein specified, frame A B, packing-gasket O, ROBERT E. DIETZ.
wick-tube plate D, wick-tubes E, and pins v or rods G, the whole combined and arranged WVitnesses:
to operate substantially as shown and dei A. M. PIERCE,
