RANSOM M. \VILLIAMS, OF AIKEN, SOUTH CAROLINA.

STEAMING VESSEL.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 619,455, dated February 14:, 1899.

Application filed November 4, 1898. Serial No. 695,487. (No model.) 7

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, RANsoM M. WILLIAMS, a citizen of the United States, residing at. Aiken, in the county of Aiken, State of South Carolina, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Steaming Vessels, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention-relates to steaming vessels, and particularly to one in which the steam will be projected against the contents of the vessel in jets under pressure.

The invention has for its object to provide an improved construction of parts for the purpose of generating steam and projecting the same under pressure. The construction also permits an intermittent projection of the steam and a similar feed of water to the steamgenerating coil.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will hereinafter appear in the following description, and the novel features thereof will be particularly pointed out in the appended claims.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of my invention with parts broken away to show the interior construction, and Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal section.

Like letters of reference indicate like parts throughout both figures of the drawings.

The letter A designates a vessel or receptacle of any desired configuration, which may be provided with any preferred form of cover A. Within this vessel a partition or false bottom B, of slightly less cross-sectional area than the vessel, is supported at a distance above the bottom A of the vessel Aby means of legs or supports 13 and thus permits passage of Water around the edge of the partition to the lower part of the vessel. This partition is provided with a central aperture B adapted to permit the passage therethrough of the vertical extension 0 of the steam-generating coil 0, which extension is provided with any desired form of delivery-pipe-for instance, the perforated pipe 0 which delivers the steam in a series of jets upon the contents of the vessel. The partition 13 supports the contents of the vessel above the valve and prevents the pressure of water and steam upon the same.

The coil 0 is provided with an upwardlyextending feed connection G which terminates at the bottom A of the vessel, and above which a valve D is located. This valve may be of any desired construction to permit the downward passage of Water from the lower portion of the vessel A and to prevent the back pressure of steam through the valve. One construction to accomplish this object is illustrated in Fig. 2, wherein a casing D is provided with a pivoted flap D which will seat beneath the aperture in the top of the casing D and prevent the entrance of water into the coil when the pressure therein is greater than that upon the water in the botsom of the vessel.

In operation the water will pass downward through the valve D until it finds its proper level within the coil O, and the heat upon this coil will quickly convert the Water into steam. The pressure of this steam at once closes the valve D and confines theexit for the steam to the jet-orifices. The impact of the steamjets under pressure agitates the contents of the vessel, so that all surfaces of the same will be equally presented to the cooking or steaming action and a much more even and thorough degree of steam heat is obtained than when no such agitation occurs. This has been found particularly desirable in preserving and also in the washing of clothes. In the first instance it prevents the packing of the fruit and properly agitates the same, so as to reduce the necessity of frequently stirring to prevent burning and to allow even the cooking of the same. As soon as the steam generated Within the coil 0 has escaped the water again enters the same through the valve D and the operation is repeated at a shortly subsequent interval.

The partition B forms a water-space beneath the contents of the receptacle and also performs the improved function of preventing the pressure'of the steam in the upper portion of the vessel acting upon the surface of the water beneath the partition. It will also be observed that the perforated pipe 0 is removable from the extension 0, which permits the further removal of the partition for the purpose of cleansing the vessel and the-parts connected with the steam-generating coil.

It will be obvious that changes may be made in the details of construction and configuration of the several pants without departing from the spirit of the invention as defined by the appended claims.

hat I claim is- 1. A steaming vessel comprising a generating-coil provided at one end with a deliveryorifice,a downwardly-openin g valve at the 0pposite end of said coil and connecting with the water-space Within the vessel, and a plate of less area than the vessel above said valve to form a chamber and support the contents of the vessel; substantially as specified.

2. A steaming vessel comprising a generating-coil provided at one end with a delivery- 0rifice,a downwardly-opening valve at the opposite end of said coil and connecting with the watenspace within the vessel, and a partition-plate of slightly less area than the vessel between said valve and delivery-orifices; substantially as specified.

3. In a steaming vessel, a generating-coil provided with a delivery-pipe having a perforated lateral extension, a valve-casing carried by the lower portion of said vessel and provided with a downwardly-opening valve communicating with the opposite end of said coil, and a partition-plate of slightly less area than the vessel supported above said valve to form a water-space in the lower portion of said vessel; substantially as specified.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

RANSOM M. XVILLIAMS.
