MORLEY PUNSHON BEYNO DS, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO W. S. TYLER COMPANY, OF CLEVELAND, OHIO, A CORPORATION OIEOHIO.-
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 30, 1913.
To all whom it ma concern:
Be it known t at I, MORLEY PUNBHON Rsruoms, a resident of Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Collectors and I do hereby declare the followin to be a full, clear, and exact description t iereof.
My invention relates to collectors and has special reference to such devices for use in collecting material from gases etc.
In the collecting of material, such as zinc oxid, and such as is practical at the resent time by the most approved method, t e zinc oxid as it comes from the smelter is assed into canvas bags, located in what is own asthe ba house, and such be are of about 22" m diameter and forms in three sections by two hoops within the same at suitable intervals so that each of said bags is about thirteen feet long and suspended vertically in the regular manner. As the gas is projected into such bags the zinc end in such gas is can ht on the interior of the bag and retained t ere, while the gas passes out through the meshes in the bag, and about four times a day the gas is shut'ofi from each bag so that the operator can shake such bag by grasping the same to allow the zinc end on the inner sides of the same to drog therefrom through a funnel at the lower on of the bag and into an ordinary bag for handling, etc. In such method the be when the gas is first put into the same wi allow some of the zinc oxid to pass through the meshes of the same as waste by-reason of none or only a small amount of the zinc oxid being on such ba as gradually collected, so that the oxi in such waste gas is lost or wasted, which in the parlance of this art is--the bag smokes, as such waste oxid is somewhat gray in color, and such bags frequently at holes or rents within the same, which wil also allow the zinc oxid, to be wasted thereby and cause such smoking of the bag. The shakin of the bag is also very long, hard and la orious to procure the dropping of all the oxid collected on the same on account of the operatives being com elled to start such shaking at the top section of the bag by the use of their hands and then continue such shaking of the be down to its lowerend.
Ehe object of'my invention is to overcome these objections and difficulties and to pro-. vide a cheaE, simple and efiicient collector which can e operated automatically, an
one in which there will be no waste of the zinc'oxid or other material to be collected, so that all the material can be collected by such collector.
To these ends my. invention consists, generally stated, in the novel arrangement, construction and combination of parts as hereinafter more specifically set forth and described and particularly pointed out in the claim.
To enable others skilled in the art to which my invention a pertains to construct and use my improve collector, I will describe the same more fully referring to the accompanying drawin s, in which Figure 1 is a vertica central section of my improved collector. Fig. 2 is a cross section of the same on the line 3-3 Fi 1. Fig. 3 is a like section on the line 22 Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is an enlarged side view, partly in section of the lower end of the collector.
. Like symbols of reference herein indicate like parts in each of the figures of the drawmgs.
As illustrated in the drawin A represents my improved collector whic comprises an inner receptacle or ba 1 andan outer receptacle or bag 2, both 0 which are preferab y circularm form with the outer bag 2 surrounding the inner bag 1, and forming a space 3 between the same. These bags 1 and 2 aresuspended vertically in any suitable manner, such as from the beam a above the same, while a shaft 4 is journaled in said beam, which shaft passes centrally through said bags and is journaled at its lower end in one of the steadying bars 5 below said bags. The bags 1 and 2 are formed from wire cloth or fabric of the desired mesh, such as is shown at 1' and 2, and such fabric is supported and strengthened by T-bars 7 exterlorly of the same and connected thereto. The upper end of the bag 1 has a sheet metal cover 8 extending over the same and connected thereto by a ring 9 of angle shape which is connected to the fabric 1 of said bag and interiorly of the same, and a like cover 8 and ring 9' is connected to the upper end of the fabric 2' of the bag 2 and against a plate 10 of sheet metal between said ring and fabric for extending collector may be resorted to without departing "fro the spirit of the inventionor sacrificing any o'fits adyantages I I It-f will thus be seen that irii 'iniprore d collector "can be used for collecting material other than zinc oXid; as described, and there will be sufficient coatingflof the material left on the bags after 'cl'eaningto' hold and readily take another coatingfw'hile ,at' the sametime therewill befa greatsaving in the smoking of the bags so "that there will be no loss of material froi'nthe Waste gases. The device will havea greaterca'pacity than the canvas bags by holding a greater amount of material as a coating, while the device Wlll also be quicker and more convenient to operate than the use of canvas bags, and will be more labor' sax-'inga'nd' cheaper to handle, either in operatingor being "kept in repair. 1
