WATER-H EATER AND GARBAGE-CREMATORY.
SPEGIFIQATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 763,410,dated June 28, 1904.
Application filed January 12,1904. Serial No. 188,679. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ALBERT LONG, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Water-Heaters and Garbage-Crematories, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in a combined water-heater and garbage-crematory.
The object of my improvement is to provide a water-heater in which garbage may be burned without throwing it directly into the fire by which it is to be consumed.
A further object is to provide a way of disposing of the ashes, &c., left from the consumed garbage without passing it through the fire-box.
Having the foregoing and other objects of novelty and utility in view, I have produced a combined Water-heater and garbage-crematory the preferred construction of which is described in detail in the following specification and in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a view in elevation of the exterior front end of my Water-heater and garbage-Crematory. Fig. 2 is a view inelevation and partly in section, taken on the line 2 2 of Fig. l; and Fig. 3 is a View taken on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1.
Referring to the drawings in detail, 1 represents the inclosing wall, which may be made of brick or other non-combustible material and within the upper portion of which is a chamber 2. In the front portion of the wall are two doors, indicated by the numerals 3 and 4, respectively, the former communicating with the fire-box 2 and the latter with the ash-pit 2 underneath the grate 5. Located in each one of the front corners of the chamber 2 is a water-pipe header 6. The said headers communicate with each other through the pipes 6 and 6 and through the header 6. The pipes 6 extend along the ends and rear of the fire-box, while pipes 6 extend to and along the inside of the rear portion of the wall. The headers 6 and the pipes 6 and 6 are supported by the wall, in which they are partially embedded. Above the fire-box are several pipes 6, which connect the header 6 with aheader 6 to the right-hand end of which is connected the outlet or hot-water pipe 6 .v The inlet or cold-water-supply pipe 6 is connected with the lower pipe 6 'Back of the fire-box is a bridge-wall 7,1nade, preferably, of fire-brick. To the rear of this bridgewall and extending parallel therewith is a sheet-iron partition 8. Resting upon the upper edge of. the bridge-wall and the partition 8 and upon the upper cross-pipe 6 is an iron plate 9, extending across the chamber from wall to wall and from the rear edge of the fire-box to the rear Wall. Locatedin an opening formed in this plateis a trap-door 9, mounted on and operated by a rod 9 which extendsthrough the right-hand portion of the wall, as shown in Fig. 1, and has a handle 9 on its outer end, to which a suitable weight or counterbalance may be secured to hold the trap-door in the position desired. That part of chamber 2which is located directly above the plate is hereinafter called a garbagechamber. Formed on the inside of the rear portion of the wall opposite the rear edge of the plate are two flues 2", which aflord communication between the garbage-chamber and the hot-air chamber 2 below the plate. In the left-handportion of the wall, as shown in Fig. 1, is a smoke-stack 11, which communicates with the hot-air chamber 2 and the garbage-chamber through the openings 11 and 11 respectively. The opening 11 is provided with a damper 11, which has a rod 11, which projects through the front wall and has a handle on its outer end. In the right-hand portion of the wall above the plate is a door 10. After the inlet-pipe and the outlet-pipe have been suitably connected with a cold-water supply and a hot-water tank, respectively, and a fire provided in the fire-box the operation is as follows:
Garbage is passed through the doorway 10 and deposited on the plate, where it is dried and burned by the heat which passes from the fire-box over the garbage, thence down through the flues 2 into the hot-air chamber, heating the plate, and thus burning the garbage from top and bottom simultaneously,
the smoke passing into the chimney through I the opening 11 except when the damper 11 is opened to provide a more direct draft while putting in garbage or building fires. Thus the garbage is consumed without being thrown into or in any way interfering with the fire. If any portion of the garbage remains unconsumed after exposure to the heat, the same may be drawn into the fire, if desired, by means of a rake inserted through the front door 3. Any ashes, tin cans, or the like which remain on the plate may be dropped through the trap-door into the ash-chamber 2 and from thence removed through the door 12 in the right-hand wall. Excess soot or refuse which collects in chamber 2 may be removed through the door 13. The heat from the fire-box and that generated from the burning of the garbage is communicated to the water-pipes and in turn to the water as the latter enters through the inlet or cold water pipe and passes out through the outlet or hot-water pipe.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is V 1. In a combined water-heater and garbagecrematory comprising an inclosing wall having therethrough suitable doorway-openings, a fire-box, water-pipes surrounding the firebox and having an inlet and an outlet extending through the wall, a bridge-wall backof said fire-box, a partition back of said bridgewall and extending parallel therewith, an ashchamber between the bridgewall and said partition, a plate sloping upwardly and rearwardly from the top of the bridge-wall and adapted to support garbage deposited thereon and having therethrough an opening above said ash-chamber, a trap-door adapted to close the opening in the plate, means for operating said trap-door, a garbage-chamber arranged above said plate, a hot-air chamber below the plate, a flue at the rear of the plate and connecting the garbage-chamber and the hot-air chamber, a smoke-stack communicating with the hot-air chamber and with the garbage-chamber, and a damper adapted to closethe communication between the smoke-stack and the garbage-chamber.
2. A combined water-heater and garbageerematory comprising an inclosing wall having therethrough suitable doorway-openings, a fire-box, water-pipes surrounding the firebox and having an inlet and an outlet extending through the wall, a plate sloping upwardly and rearwardly from the back of the fire-box and adapted to support garbage deposited thereon, a garbage-chamber arranged above said plate, a hot-air chamber below the plate, a flue at the rear of the plate and connecting the garbage-chamber with the hot-air chamber, and a smoke-stack communicating with the hot-air chamber and with the garbagechamber.
3. In a device of the character described, an inelosing wall provided with suitable doorway-openings, a fire-box, a plate extending rearwardly from the back of the fire-boxand' adapted to support garbage thereon, a garbage-chamber arranged above said plate, a hot-air chamber below the plate, a flue conneeting the said chambers and a smoke-stack communicating with the hot-air chamber and with the garbage-chamber.
4:. In adevice of the character described, an inclosing wall provided with suitable doorway, a fire-box, a plate extending rearwardly from the back of the fire-box and adapted to support garbage deposited thereon and having therethrough an opening, a trap-door adapted to close said opening, means for operating said trap-door, a garbage-chamber arranged above said plate, a hot-air chamber below the plate, and a smoke-stack communicating with the hotair chamber.
In testimony whereof Iaflix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
ALBERT LONG.
