N. FEIERS. PMOTO-LTHOGRAPHER WASHINGTON D c UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

zEBULoN HUNT, 0E HUDsoN, NEw YORK.

IMPROVEMENT IN CULINARY SINKS.

Speciiication forming part of Letters Patent No. 576,225, dated July 10, 1866.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ZEBULoN HUNT, of the city of Hudson, in the county of Columbia and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Sink for Culinary Uses, and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making apart of this specification, in which- Figure l is a birds-eye view; Fig. 2, a longitudinal vertical section 5 Fig. 3, atransverse section of the lower or discharge end; Fig. 4, a top or birds-eye view of the strainer.

The nature of my invention consists in placing over the discharge-orifice of the sink a square tunnel or hopper with perforated sides, through which the water is compelled to pass on its way to the orifice, detaining all heavy matter or sediment in a reservoir around and outside of the strainer, allowing only the strained and comparatively clean water to enter the dischargeoriiice.

To enable those skilled in the art to make and use my invention, I will proceed to describe its construction and operation.

I construct my sink of cast-iron, about two and a quarter feet or twenty-seven inches wide by four feet long, or in that proportion. (See Fig. l.) One-quarteror thereabont of the bottom farthest from the discharge is corrugated or ridged slightly for draining utensils or articles deposited there immediately after washin g,preparatory to wiping and removing them.

At the opposite end of the bottom I have a movable or removable piece, B, extending in length quite across the sink and in breadth or width about one-sixth of the whole length of the bottom. In each end of this piece B are three or four slotted apertures, t' i fi, Src., through which the water passes into the reservoir below, from which, as soon as it rises to the height of the partition b b surrounding the bottom of the strainer C, it flows through the perforations in the latter, and thence into the orice D. From the under side ot' this bottom piece, B, and attached to it, is suspended a quadrangular partition or flange, a a, surrounding and inclosin g the strainer C, the bottom or lower edge of which partition extends down below the top of the circular partition or collar b b, thus effectually arresting all stench and eftluvia from the drain D. This arrangement also prevents anything entering which could in any way stop up or choke the pipe or conduit leading to the main drain or sewer, all such refuse matter being compelled to lodge and rest in the reservoir below and around the strainer C. This strainer, Fig. 4, is also selfcleaning. All substances which will iioat, and all that by force of the current are carried against its flaring sides, if too large to pass easily through their perforations, fall back into the reservoir below and around the strainer, thus leaving the perforations all clean and open. They do not clog and fill up, as does the flat strainer commonly employed in the bottom of cast-iron sinks, where the water, Ilth, and all iow upon it, and whatever is not admitted through its perforations lodges on and around the strainer, and soon clogs and stops it up.

- What-I'claim pas my invention, and desire to secure by `Letters Patent of the United States, is-

1. The combination of the corrugated or tinted drainer A and removable slotted piece B with and forming part ofthe bottoni ot' the sink, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

2. The flaring or funnel-shaped strainer C, in combination with the drop partition or curtain a a, substantially in the manner set forth.

Z. HUNT.
