SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 425,222, dated April 8, 1890.
' Application filed November 19, 1889. Serial No. 330,912. (No model.)

An annular water-pan 2-1- is arranged in this chamber and surrounds the opening 20.
A chamber 26 is arranged on the outside of the furnace and communicates with the bottom of the pan 24- through a suitable pipe 28. The chamber 213 is provided with a suitable cover 30, and its wall is preferably a little lower than the walls of the 'pan 24. The pan is tilled with water by pouring it into the chamber 26, and before the pan will overflow the water will run over the top of the chamber 26. The vertical pipe 59, hcreinbeforc referred to, is provided at its top with a horizontal extension that passes through the water-pan 2% into the central space thereof, as shown in Fig. 1. The dome is also provided with openings 32, to which suitable hotair pipes may be connected for the purpose of leading the heated air to the rooms or apartments that are to be heated.
Operation: In starting the fire, or when it is desired to obtain a direct draft, the damper 8 may be opened and the slides in one or both of the doors 10 and 17. There will then be a direct draft from the iirepot through the pipe (5 into the smoke-flue. After the fire is well under way the damper S is closed, and the draft will then be through the openings 23, down through the diving-flue, and into the smoke-pipe through the chamber 29. The downward draft from the fuel-do0r 10 through the fuel in the lire-pot to the openings will carry the smoke and products of combustion downward over and through the ignited coal in the lower part of the fire-pot, causing the smoke and unconsumed gases to be consumed. The upward draft through the grate will cause the fuel in the lower part of the fire-pot to remain ignited. By this means I am enabled to obtain a substantially perfect combustion of the fuel. The cold air, which is brought through the line l7 and carried into the space 49, after passing through the chamber -15, goes upward in this space, and a part of it passes into the chamber 51, and after passing through that chamber, where it becomes heated, passes through the pipes 57 and 59 upward, and then into the hot-air chamber :22, being delivered in said chamber inside of the annular waterpan 24c. The remaining air in the space 49 passes upward in said space, and then into the chamber Lt through the opening 16, and after passing through said chamber is delivered through the opening 20 into the center of the chamber 22. All of the heated air that is brought into the chamber 22 must first pass over the top of the pan 2-1, and in doing so it becomes charged with moisture therefrom, and in this condition is ready to pass into the pipes leading to the apartments. It will be seen that this construction will secure avery perfect combustion of the fuel, and that the air will be brought to a high temperature by the time that it reaches the hot-air chamber,
from which it is passed to the apartments to be heated. It will also be seen that this construction may be used in any kind of a stove or heater.

5. The combination, in a heater, with the fire-pot having openings in its wall, of a diving, flue surrounding said lire-pot, with which said openings communicate, the chamber 29, with which said diving-flue communicates, provided with the vertical wall 35, having openings 37, and with the door 4:3, the smokc-flue 4 1, and the pipe 39, connecting said chamber with said smoke -fiue, substantially as dcscribed.
(3. The combination, with the fire-pot and the diving-flue surrounding said fire-pot, of
the casing 2, forming an airspace 49 outside of IIO said diving-flue, and the chamber 14, arranged above said fire-pot and connected with said air-space and having the spiral division-plate 18 therein, substantially as described.
7. The combination, in a heater having a suitable fire-pot and an annular diving-flue surrounding said fire-pot, of a casing arranged outside of said diving-flue, and chambers 14 and 51, arranged, respectively, above and below said fire-pot, and the hot-air dome 22, the said chamber 14 communicating with the space 49 and With said drum, and chamber 51v communicating with the drum through pipe 59, and also with space 49, substantially as described.
8. The combination, with the fire-pot 3 and the chamber 4, arranged above said fire-pot, of the casing 2, surrounding said fire-pot and inclosin g a suitable air-space, the chamber 14, arranged above said chamber 4 and provided with a spiral division-plate and having an opening 20 at its center, and a chamber 22, arranged above said chamber 14 and provided with the annular Water-pan 24, surrounding said opening 20.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set -my hand this 8th day of November, 1889.
