SPECIFICATION forming part Of Letters Patent N o. 648,068, dated April 24, 1900.
Application. filed June 23, 189,8. Renewed September 21, 1899. Serial No, 731,279. (No model.)
T0 @ZZ whom it may concern..-
Be it known that I, THOMAS J. CooKsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Joliet, county of l/Vill, State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Steam-Separators, of which the followingis a specification.
My invention belongs to thatvclass of separators in which the steam strikes against a baille-plate and is deflected against a diaphragm. that can be cheaply and easily constructed, can be easily taken apart for cleaning,'can be used with steam passing through it in either direction, and can be adjusted to different tlows of steam.
It consists of a cross-coupling having a plug screwed into the top,which carries the baffleplate, and a pipe screwed into the bottom, in which the diaphragm is placed.
It further consists of details hereinafter more full y described,and particularly pointed out in the claims.
Figure lis a side elevation of my invention. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the same. Fig. 3 is a perspective View of the plug and bailleplate removed. Fig. 4 is a view of the battleplate looking in the direction of the flow of the steam, the cross-coupling being in section. Fig. 5 is a sectional view at right angles to Fig. 2.
A represents the crosscoupling; B, the
.pipe screwed into the bottoni; C,"the plug screwed into the top; D, the baille-plate; E, the diaphragm; F F,the inlet and outlet ports; G, the water-glass; H, the cap screwed onto the pipe B, and I the drain-pipe.
The operation of my separator is as follows: The steam enters through the pipes F F from either direction, strikes upon the bafile-plate D, and is deiiected downward upon the diaphragm E. This baffle-plate is provided with corrugations or ribs d thev more thoroughly to intercept the steamand separate the water, oil, dac., from the steam. It is attached to or forms a part of the plug O,which screws into the top of the cross A and can be set at different angles to the line of entrance of the steam,'as shown in dotted lines in Fig. 5. In this way a different motion may be ini- Its object is to provide a separator l parted to the steam and more orless resistance prevented, as desired. The baffle-plate is curved, as shown, symmetrically on each face to dei-lect the steam downward from whichever side it enters. The steam is deflected upon the diaphragm E, which is set in the pipe B at any desired height, being heldin position by the set-screws c. It is of slightly-less diameter than the pipe, leaving a narrow passageway for the water around its edge. Its upper surface is convex, so that the waterfwill run off at the edge. By setting this diaphragm nearer or farther from the lower edge of the battle-plate D the resistance to the steam may be increased or diminished. The parts are similar and present the same obstruction to the steam from whichever side it enters, thus making the separator reversible.
The watergage G indicates the height of the water in B, and when it rises ltoo high it may be drawn oi through I.
When it is desired to clean the separator, the cap H is removed and the diaphragm taken out or the plug O is unscrewed, giving free access to all parts.
description that I have produced a separator adjustable to different uses and constructed, Vwiththe exception of the baffle-plate and diaphragm, of stock material-that is, piping and couplings usually carried in stock--for all ordinary sizes.
In case it is desired to dispense with the separator or to remove it it will only be necessary to screw'out the plug O and the pipe B and screw in plugs at top and bottom in their places and the steam connection will be complete and unobstructed.
IVhat I claim, and desire to secure by Let-v ters Patent, is
l. The herein-described separator consist ing of the combination of the chamber A, the ports F, F, therein, the adjustable baffle-plate D therein, and the chamber B below said chamber A; all substantially as shown and described. v
2. The herein-described separator, consisting of the combination of the chamber A, the ports F, F, therein, the removable plug C, the baffle-plate D, upon or carried by said It will be understood from the foregoingA IOO plug, and the Chamber B, below said chamber A; all substantially as shown and described.
3. The herein-described separator consisting of the combination of the inlet and outletportsF, F; the chamberA; the baille-plate D therein, adjustable axially; the chamber B and the diaphragm E in said chamber B, all substantially as shown and described.
4. The herein-described separator, consisting of the combination of the inlet and outlet ports F, F, the baffle-plate D, the chainber B, and the adjustable diaphragm E in said chamber B, all substantially as shown and described.
5. The herein-described separator, consisting of the combination of the inlet and outlet ports F, F, the adjustable baffle-plate D, the
