SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 471,123, dated March 22, 1892.
Application filed September 18, 1891. Serial No. 406,082. (No model.)
Too/ll whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, FRANKLIN E. JORDAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ohicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Vaporizers; 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.
The invention consists in certain improvements in Vaporizers for oil or other fluids from which vapor-fuel may be produced, as hereinafter described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a side view of a vaporizer constructed according to my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical central section of the retort. Fig. 3 is a sectional plan of the retort. Fig. 4 illustrates the vapor-pipe in section.
A designates the shell of the retort, being a circular closed vessel usually of cast metal and formed with a passage B, extending through the center, as shown. WVithin the retort are two inclosures O and D, formed by the curved walls a and b, the said walls extending from the bottom of the retort nearly to the top. The shell Ais also provided with interior columns or posts 0, extending from the bottom to the top, which serve to strengthen the shell, to transmit heat, and to prevent cracking of retort by expansion, the said posts and also the curved walls being made solid with the shell. An aperture d is made in the bottom of the retort and leads into the inclosure C, said aperture being surrounded by a boss for the attachment of a supply-pipe E. Another aperture c is made in the bottom of the retort and leads into the inclosure D, and a vapor-pipe F is passed through said aperture e and extends upward in the inclosure D, as shown. The said vapor-pipe has an elbow f and extends under the retort, and an aperture g is made in said pipe, said aperture being in position directly under the center of the vertical passage B. A short distance from the aperture g the pipe F is partly closed by a partition 1', formed in said pipe and having a central aperture, as shown.
G indicates a regulating-rod provided with a handle h at its outer end, the inner end of the rod being in connection with the vaporpipe F. The inner end of the rod Gis somewhat tapered or reduced and is bored,for a short distance, as seen at n, and a small aperture o is made in the hollow portion of said rod. The pipeF and rod G are screw-threaded, as seen at m, so that by turning the rod it may be closed against the partition zor withdrawn therefrom as desired, As will be seen, the aperture 0 in the hollow portion of the rod G it smaller than either the aperture gin the pi peF or the aperture in the partition 1' of said pipe, and when the said rod is closed endwise against the partition 2' the passage of vapor from said pipe must be through the small aperture 0 in the rod to the aperture g above; but when the rod is withdrawn from the partition t the vapor has a larger passage from said pipe about the reduced end of the rod to the aperture g.
H indicates a circular pan, beinga shallow vessel a little larger in circumference than the retort. It is located under the retort and maybe connected with and supported by the supply-pipe E.
I indicates a deflecting-plate supported over the retort by a vertical arm k and a leg Z, the latter being made solid with said plate. The plate I is made slightly convex on its lower side and has a loop or eye ron its upper side. The arm it rests in a perforated lug or socket p, formed on the shell A, and by means of an implement inserted in the eye 1' the plate may be turned away laterally or lifted from the retort. Oil or other hydrocarbon, being supplied through the' pipe E, enters the inclosure 0 within the retort, and, filling said inclosure, passes over its wall a into the main chamber of the retort, the inclosure O meantime serving to catch any sand or sediment which may rise with the oil. The retort being filled, oil will pass down the vapor-pipeand from thence there will be a small flow of oil from said pipe through the aperture g into the pan H, and
the oil in the pan being ignited the oil in the retort will become vaporized, and the dis charge from pipe F through the aperture 9 will be in the form of vapor, which will rise through the central passage B in the retort,
porizer, of a vapor-pipe provided with a perforated partition 2' and a lateral dischargeaperture, a regulating-rod constructed to connect with said vapor-pipe, the end of said rod, which enters said pipe, being reduced and made hollow and provided with a lateral discharge-aperture, substantially as set forth and described.
111 testimony whereof I have affixed my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
