SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 410,757, dated September 10, 1889.
Application filed June 1,1888.- Serial No. 275,719. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern: of the material is effected, and, after being Beit known that I, EDWIN CoLvER GRIFFIN, ground or pulverized, is raised and thrown a citizen of the Dominion of Canada, residing against and through the screens, and, sixth, at Brooklyn,in the countyof Kings and State the differences in the construction and ar- 55 of NewYork, have invented certain new and rangement of the cover of the mill, the useful, Improvements in Pulverizingdvlills; screen-frame,andthe casing surrounding the and I do hereby declare the following to be a same, whereby ready access maybe had to the full, clear, and exact description of the inveninterior of the mill for examination and retion, such as will enable others 'skilledin the moval or renewal of the screens or other 6o art to which it appertains to make and use parts.

This casing or pan or its shells may 50 and operation of the revolving casting or be cast integrally with the connectingwebs or driver, whereby a perfect distribution or feed ribs; or they may be made in several parts or sections, so as to secure lightness in handling or convenience in repairing individual parts.
C indicates the top or cover of the mill. It is made in two parts and cast or formed integrally with the main screen-frames C,which support the smaller screen-frames c and to which they are suitably bolted. One half of the combined top or cover and main screenframe is made removable for obtaining access to the interior of the mill,whi1e the other or stationary half is formed with the feedopening 0', and is adapted to support whatever construction of feeding device may be employed. The sheetmetal casing 0 surrounding or arranged outside of the smaller screen-frames c, is also made in two parts and joined by swinging bolts 0", which fit in slotted or open-topped lugs 0*, whereby either or both of said parts may be readily removed for examination or renewal of the screens.
D indicates the steel ring or annular die against which the grinding or pulverizing rollers E operate in treating the material. This die may be a solid ring, as shown in Fig. 3, or sectional, as shown in another application of mine filed simultaneously herewith. In my present mill said die rests upon the upper part of the inner shell Z), and is peripherally secured within the outer shell I) by wedges Z). A ring F is secured by stud-boltsfto the outer shell I) and presses upon and secures said die against vertical movement. Between the die and the touching parts of the inner shell I) and the ring F, and also between the wedges b and the outer shell I), are interposed paekings, of rubber, paper, or other elastic material, for deadening the sound and for lessening the jar caused by the operation of the machine. Through the ring F are formed holes f corresponding in position to the openings 1) between the inner and outer shells.
The moving or revolving parts of my improved mill are the following: G represents the driving-shaft, which is mounted and revolved in the step-bearing g, and supported above in a bearin g secured in the central elevated portion of theinner shell I), as shown by dotted lines g in Fig. 3. To this shaft is secured the drivingpulley g 01', if preferred, it may be revolved by gearing. Along the upper portion of said shaft is secured a casting or driver H, which acts as a feed director and distributor and, also, as a support for the driving-disks h and for the elevating inclines or shoes 71. The lower portion of this revolving casting or driver is formed conically and provided at the base of the cone with a horizontal flange o. The elevating inclines or shoes h pass through inclined slots formed in said flange and are attached to the latter by wedges fitted into lugs having wedgeshaped recesses; or said inclines or shoes maybe bolted or otherwise removably secured to said flange. At the upper part of said casting or driver H is formed a hub 7L2, from which radiate the feeddirecting webs h h, which are provided with the deflecting-flanges h h. At the lower ends of, and. attached to said webs and to the central hub, is a horizontal flange 71 which is provided with pockets or openings in which the grinding or pulverizing rolls work. On this flange are cast bosses 7L, which have open faces merging into the openings or pockets containing the rollers. In these open faces are placed bushings or journalbearings 7L7, which are firmly held in place by clamps or straps h, passed around the bosses 'h" and their open faces. Vithin these hearings revolve the shafts h, to the upper and lower ends of which are secured the roller-driving disks 7L, which bear against :the journals of and revolve the rollers, which are held in contact with said driving-disks by being forced against the annular die by centrifugal force and by said disks being forced against their journals as the driver is revolved. At the upper and lower ends of each bearing, and between the same and the driving-disks, as shown in Fig. 4, is placed a washer it), which is made of suitable antifriction material and backed by an elastic packing-washer h, for effectually reducing wear and keeping out all grit, dust, or water from said bearing; or, in lieu of this construction and arrangement of parts, I may flare and groove the opposite ends of the bearings,correspondingly groove the adjacent faces of the driving-disks, and place within said grooves anti-friction balls, as shown in Fig. 5, and attain the same results.
The grinding or pulverizing rollers E are made with journals c on their ends, which bear against the driving-disks 7L; hence, as the rollers are held between said disks and against the annular die by centrifugal force, said driving-disks act as journal-bearings for the journals of said rollers; also, as the driving-disks are several times greater in diameter than the journals of the rollers,they revolve very much slower than said rollers, and consequently the wear on the journals of the driving-disks is proportionally smaller than when the rollers are supported in bearings surrounding their journals, as in former constructions; also, by making the upper driving-disk a little less in diameter than the lower one and the .upper roller-journal smaller than the lower one, as shown in Fig. 4, theaxes of the grinding-roller will vary somewhat from the perpendicular, and when in operation the roller will have a tendency to rise by centrifugal force and adhesion to the inner surface of the die, and thus counteract the weight or gravity of said roller and allow it to revolve freely and without undue pressure upward or downward against the driving-disks.
The grinding-rollers and their driving-disks may be made of chilled iron or steel, and varied in form from that herein disclosed without departing from the gist of this part-of my invention.
The operation of my improved mill is as follows: The crushed rock or other material to be reduced or pulverized, being introduced into the mill through the feed-opening c, is caught as it falls by the feed-directing webs h? h and their deflecting flanges 7r h, is thrown out thereby against the annular die immediately in front of the advancing grindingrollers, and is acted upon thereby. It then falls downward toward or upon the elevating inclines or shoes h, and by them or by other lifting means is driven upwardly and outwardly against the screens in the screenframes 0. Such portions of the material as have been crushed sufficiently fine pass out through the screen and fall through the openings b between the inner and outer shells b b, and into the receiving-trough a, from which they are discharged by the ribbed conveyer or sweep a which. is attached to'the shaft G through the spout a The material which does not pass through the screens falls back upon and across the face of the die D, and is again acted upon by the rollers until it is reduced to the requisite fineness.
By the perfect distribution of the material, the free and complete working of the grinding-rollers, and the action of the elevating inclines or shoes in repeatedly throwing the material against the screens through which the product is discharged rapidly, I find in practice that my improved mill will do double the amount of work for the same power of any other mill of which I am aware.
For wet grinding it is only necessary to introduce the required amount of water, as the operation otherwise is the same as for dry grinding. As the journals are protected by dust and water-proof packing, it is not possible for the dust or water to interfere with the proper working of the bearings.
Having thus fully described the construc tion, arrangement, and operation of the parts of my invention, what I claim as new is 1.
