APPARATUS FOR GENERATING ACETYLENE GAS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 582,546, dated May 11, 1897. Application filed December 22, 1896- Serial No. 616,581. (No model.)
My invention relates to an improved appa- 1o ratus for generating and storing acetylene gas, the construction of which is fully described and illustratedin the following specification and the accompanying drawings, the novel features thereof being specified in the claims annexed to the said specification.
'In the accompanying drawings, represent ing my improved acetylene-gasv apparatus, Figure 1-is a front elevation. Fig. 2 is a central vertical section through the water-supply 2o tank, the gas-generating chamber, and the intermediate receiver, showing also the connecting-piping;
In the accompanying drawings, A is the generating chamber or receptacle; B, the water-supply tank; 0, the intermediate waterreceiver; D, the gas-holder or gasometer, and F the cooler. 1
m is a pipe connecting the generator A with the worm 0 of'the cooler F, and G is the delivery or service pipe, through which the gas is conveyed to one or more of a series of suitable burners.
The various parts of the apparatus are arranged in any suitable relation to each other, 5 being connected together, for instance, by the bracket 0, and a suitable support being provided, the generator being placed at such a distance from the floor as to allow of the-con-' venient removal of the outer shell g, Fig. 2, 40 of the generator.
In the practical operation of the apparatus the water from the tank B is fed through the receiver 0 onto the car-bid of calcium Q, in the generator Aby the up-and-down movement 4 5 of the inverted inner tank E of the gas-holder,
by which thevalves h and i are, opened and closed, so as to deliver the water in the proper quantities into. the generator. The valves h and i are concerted with the movable tanlcE 'vided with valve h.
of the gas-holder by the lovers 0 and (7 and the chain or other suitable connection e.-
The water-supply tank 1; is of any suitable dimensions, being preferably made concshaped at its lower end, so that all the water in it may be discharged into the pipe z, pro- I The tank I is provided with a suitable orifice closed with a plug or other suitable device, such as the screw-cap N, by which the tank may be closed after being filled. The intermediate receiver 0 is also preferably made cone-shaped at its lower end, which connects with thc'p'ipe :0, provided with valve 71.
Any suitable valves may be employed between the tank B and the receiver 0 and between the receiver and the generator, but
in practice I have found that ordinary conical plug-valves, as shown, answer satisfactorily. These valves are arranged-so that one is opened and the other closed, or vice versa, by the simultaneous movement of the levers c and d in either direction. Thus when the tank E descends, owing to the consumption of the gas, the lower valve 2' is opened,'s0 as to permit the water to descend into the generator, while when the tank rises the lower valve 1'- is closed and the upper valve h opens, so as to allow the water from the tank B to enter the receiver 0. From the top of the receiver C'-,which is preferably con eshapedorinclined, as shown, the pipe open at both ends, extends upward into the tank B, terminating above the highest water-line therein, so that as water descends through pipe 2 when the valve 71- is open the air may escape from. the receiver to the tank. The pipe 70 forms apa'ssag'e between the top of the generator and the top of the supply-tank, so that the water may be fed freely from the receiver G into the generator. The lower end of the pipe 00 terminates inside the cover f of the generator in a rose-jet or other distributin g device, such, for instance, as the inverted cone 0", Fig. 2, by which the water is spread out over the surface of the carbid. All these parts may soldering or joints.
' gas as it passes through the worm. 3O
2 seams vement wayyasby the catches-or hooks v and pins w, so that it may be readily detached. A water seal is formed between the cover f and the shell g by means of the flange n,
which descends into an annular trough, partially filled with water, formed between the upper part of the shell and the annularlip or flange 0, attached thereto. This flange 0' is located on the inside of the shell, so that in case of any overflow of the water in the trough it will descend into the annular space p, formed between the shell 9 and-the circular wall (1. The earbid Q rests on the partition r, placed at a suitable distance about the bottom 8' of the shell g inside the wall g, which is perforated above the bottom, to allow of the escape of any excess of water into the space 10.
The pipe on is provided with the. valve n, which is used to cut off communication between the generator and the gas-holder when the earbid has to be replenished; The outer casingF is filled with water,in which the worm o is immersed for the purpose of cooling the At the bottom of the cooler-F the worm connects with the partition 2- which forms a drigchamber R, provided with the cock q, through which any condensed products may be discharged.
From the drip-chamber R the pipe 4' runs inside the movable tank E and delivers the gas therein, The pipe 3 carries the gas from the interior of the tank E to the service-pipe 'G, which is provided at its lower end with the drip-chamber t, having the drip-cock u. A weight I may be attached to the chain or connection 6. The pipe a passes through the top ofthe movable tank E and extends downward inside the same for. a suitable distance, being arranged to blow elf any excess of gas from the tank E when it rises to the limit of its upward travel, at which time the lower end of the pipe (1 will be above the level of the water in the outer tank B. The pipe a is attached to a'flexible tube 12, which is arranged to deliver the excess of gas into any suitable locality or into another gasometer.
One mode of operating my invention consists in connecting the tank B with any suitable source of water-s11 pply under a pressure greater than that in the gas-generator, and
in this case the pipes j and k, or one of them, may be dispensed with. Such a connection of the tank 13 with. an ordinary service-pipe is indicated at T, Fig. 2, and in such caseithe dimensions of the tank may be materially re dnced; or the pipetitsolf 'm ayJansWer'as the, tank. The cable,- Fxgnay' be provided with thecover M. I

2. The combination of the gas-generating receptacle, the closed water-supply tank and the intermediate receiver, the connectingpipe between the supply-tank and the receiver with the valve therein, the connectingpipe between the receiver and the generator with the valve therein, the pipes connecting the receiver and the generator with the supply-tank, the movable gas-l1oldcr, suitable mechanism whereby the valves are connected with the gas-holderso as to be operated thereand suitable piping connecting the generator with the gas-holder, substantially as described.
3. The combination with the gas-generator A, consisting of the cover f and detachable vessel 9 connected by a water seal, of the receiver O, the water-supply tank B, the intermediate-valves h and 1', the movable gasholder and suitable mechanical connections whereby the valves are operated from the holder, substantially as described.
4. The combi ation of the gas-generating receptacle, the water-supply tank and the intermediate receiver, the valves between the supply-tank and the intermediate'reeeiver and between the receiver and the generator,
