LIXIVIATING APPARATUS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Eatented Jan. so, rare. 1

Original application filed August 26, 1897, Serial No. 649,5?5. Renewed 0ctober'1 2, 1907, Serial 160.3%,187. Divided and this application filed Piay 23, 1908. Serial No. 134,555.

T a all whomxit may concern:

Be it known that I, EDWARD N. TRUMP, of

Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga, in the.

State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Lixiviating Apparatus, of which the following a specification.

My invention has for its object the production of a lixiviating apparatus of the type disclosed in my application co-pending with this application, Sr. No. 397,167, renewal of application Sr. No. 649,575, filed Aug. 26, 1897, which application has now matured into Patent No. 889,159, May 28, 1908 and of which this application is a division; and it consists in the combinations and constructions hereinafter set forth and claimed.

In describing this invention, reference is had to the accompanying drawing, which is a longitudinal sectional view, partly in elevation, of my apparatus.

.This lixiviating apparatuscomprises, generally, a main shell for receiving a solvent and the material to be treated, a second shell for receiving the undissolved material from the main shell and including means for sep-. arating the fine undissolved particles fromthe coarser material, and means for receiving said particles from the second shell and returning the same to the main shell to be again subjected to the solvent.

As here illustrated, themain shell .1 is formed cylindrical and arranged in lying down position with its axis inclined out of a horizontal plane, and associated with the shell 1- is an inlet, as a pipe 2, for the solvent, discharging into the high portion of the shell 1, and also an inlet 3 for the material to be treated, discharging into the 'lower end of said shell. 'A. feed pipe 2' communicates with the pipe 2, such feed pipe having one or more branches, as the branch 2 Preferably, the'shell 1 is provided with means, as an internal spiral blade 4 for feeding the material being treated against the curre-ntof solvent toward the high end of the shell 1. The convolutions of the blade 4 divide the shell 1 into compartments, and the solvent feed downwardly from compartment to compartment over the edges of portions of the blade 4 it the hottom of the shell 1 and escapes into a Sta-- t-ionary vessel 5 at'the lower end of said shell. The vessel 5 also supports the inlet 3 for the material to be treated. Said main shell 1 is preferably provided with tires 6 resting on bearings 7, and is revolved by any suitable means, here shown as a. peripheral gear 8 and a driving gear 9 meshing -therew1th and connected to a motor, not

shown. Preferably, the second shell 10-is formed cylindrical, is inclined, and is ar ranged endwise relatively to the high end of the main shell 1, the cylindrical wall of the shell 10 outside of the main shell 1 being perforated for permitting fine undiS- solved particles of, the material being treated to pass through the perforations of said wall and b'ecoxre separated from the coarser material, which is conveyed lengthwise of the shell 10 and discharged from the high end thereof by an internal spiral blade 11 fixed tothe shell 10. Said shell 10 is actuated in any suitable manner, and as here shown, is mounted on, and rotatable by, an axle 12, which is journaled in bearings 13 and lat at opposite ends of the shell lO and is provided at its outer end with a pulley to the main shell 1 preferably consists of a third shell or trough 16 which extends under, and partly surrounds, the perforated'1' shell 10, and is inclined downwardly toward the main'shellil, the lower end of the member 16 extending into the main shell-for facilitating the discharge into such shell of the fine undissolved material feeding into the shell 16. Said lower end of'the shell 16 also serves as a support for the bearing 13 for the axle 12 of the perforated shell 10.- This third shell or trough 16 is supported by suitable supports 17 My apparatus is preferably provided with means for feeding the material from the main shell 1 to the perforated shell 10, the a same comprising a cha ber 18 and a pocket 19, the chamber 18 being fixed relatively to face of the high end ofthc shell 1 thus being movable into and out of the solvent for picking up -the undissolved material therein I Mus is paz-L' perco'im' any SUSIE m wing treated is "I: IIIM) inI b 23 aged;
