EDGAR FRIEDMAN, or DOBBS FERRY, NEW YORK.
APPARATUS FOR CONVEYING ROLLING PACKAGES.
- SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 540,970, dated June 11, 1895.
Application filed February 14:, 1895. Serial No. 538,344. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern: I,
Beit known that I, EDGAR FRIEDMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dobbs Ferry, county of Westchester, State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparatus for Conveying Rolling Packages, of which the following is a specification.
My invention has par'ticularlyin View the provision of apparatus which will enable barrels to be conveyed at the same time that they are rolled over in pitching so that the two operations can be carried on at once, and to this end my invention consists in certain apparav tus comprising a track and means for propelling an article along the same in such manner as to permit it to roll while forcing it positively along.
Referring to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, Figure I is a side elevation of my improved conveyer, part being in vertical section. Fig. II is a Figs. III and IV are end views taken, respectively, at the upper and lower ends. Fig. V is asectional detail view of the track and part of the conveyer.
The conveyermay be inclined as shown or horizontal and may be operated in either direction. The frame of the conveyer is made up of iron tubing 1 having at the higher part suitable braces 2 and supporting part way up a track 3 of angle iron and at top the track 4. of T-iron. The web of the T-irou is bolted to the frame of the conveyer and the upper surface acts as a track for the small rollers of the carrying chain. Guard rails 5 are provided formed of square iron or pipe having perfectly rounded upper surfaces. Two'end less chains 6 are carried by sprocket wheels 7 on shafts 8, 9 at opposite ends of the conveyer frame and one of the shafts 8 has suitable means of driving; for example, a hand winch 10. The other shaft is mounted in boxes 11 carried by screws 12 which pass through suitable threaded sockets (not shown) journaled in'the posts of the conveyor frame at the lower end. To obtain sufficient rigidity, these posts may be filled. Adjustment of these screws can be had by turning the screw threaded socket pieces in their supporting collars l4 and the chains may thus be kept taut. This adjustment is not illustrated in detail for the reason that it is quite common and well-known.
At suitable distances apart are arranged cross bars or shafts 15 which are connected to the chains in any preferred manner. The chains may, for example, be connected to the shafts by being rigidly attached to clips 16 which run on bearings 17 on the shafts 15. The spindles 18 of the shafts carry two freely running rollers 19, 20. The latter acts as a support for the shaft and the carrying chain from the tracks 3, 4.
When a barrel is put in position upon the conveyer, its ends rest upon the rails 5 and when the chains are driven by the hand winch 10 or otherwise, the barrel may be propelled barrel has reached the other end of the conveyer.
The lower ends of the tracks 4 are extended slightly, as shown at 22, to guide the barrel to place and at the upper ends the tracks may have suitable holes to receive the hooks of a skid 23.
In returning to the lower end, the shafts and their rollers are carried by the small rollers 2O resting upon the under track rails 3 as shown in Fig. III.
The-track composed of T-iron 4 and guard rail 5 may be used in any position, without the conveying apparatus herein described, where a track or skid is required for sliding packages.
Having thus described my invention, the following is what I claim as new therein and desire'to secure by Letters Patent:
1. An apparatus for conveying rolling packages comprising suitable rails for supporting the rolling package, conveying ch ains sprocket wheels, cross-shafts or bars fixed to said chains a suitable distance apart, rollers loosely journaled upon said cross-shafts, a track upon which said rollers operate for supporting the If pitch or any other material chains and cross-shafts, and abutment rollers also loosely journaled upon said cross-shafts and adapted to serve as rotating abutments for the rolling packages being conveyed by the chains along the supporting rails, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination of the supporting frame 2, the guard rails 5 for supporting the rolling package, the upper track 4, the lower track 3, the sprocket wheels 7 having suitable means of operation, the chains 6 supported on the sprocket wheels, the cross-shafts or bars 15 connected to the chains a suitable distance apart, the supporting rollers 20 loosely mounted on the ends of the shafts 15 and running on the tracks 3 and 4, and the abutment rollers 19 also loosely journaled on the shafts 15 and adapted to-serve as rotating abutments for the rolling packages being conveyed along the supporting rails, substantially as set forth.
3. The combination of the supporting frame, the T-iron rails 4 mounted upon the supporting frame and forming tracks, the guard rails 5 mounted upon the T-iron rails, the angle iron rails mounted below the T-iron rails and forming a lower track, suitable conveyer chains supported upon sprocket wheels, crossshafts secured to the chains, and supporting and abutment rollers 20 and 19 mounted upon the shafts, substantially as set forth.
