Application filed March 8, 1920. Serial No. 364,000.
T0 all whom t may concern Be it known that l, PATRICK J. Bor-IAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at San Diego, in the county ofSan Diego and State of alifornia, have' invented a certain new and useful Gas Burner, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a gas burner more particularly adapted for use where a great many heat units are required such as heating boilers and the like and the objects of my 'invention are First, to provide a'burner of this class in which the gas contacts'with a disk shaped baille plate for spreading 'the Haine which bafle plate is adjustable relatively to the outlet of the gas or near the point of ignition; Second to provide a gasV burner of this class in which the baille plate will not overheat and will distribute the flame as desired by adjustment; Third, to provide a burner of this class which consists largely of standard fittings; Fourth, to provide a burner of this class which is very ecient in its Vaction and which will not readily deteriorate or get out of order'and Fifth, to providea burnery of this class which is very simple of construction, durable, easy to operate, and easy to install.
With these and other objects in view as will appear hereinafter7 my invention consists of certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions as will be hereinafter described in detail and particularly set forth in the appended claimsl reference'being had to the accompanying drawings and to the characters of reference thereon which form a part of this application in which:
Figure l is a side elevational view of my burner showing some of the parts and portions broken away and in section to facilitate the illustration: Fig. 2 is a plan view of a fragmentary portion thereof and Fig. 3 is a fragmentary side elevational view in a slightly modilied form from that of Fig. l, showing some of the parts and portions broken away and in section. f
Similar characters of reference refer' to similar parts and portions throughout the several views of the drawings.
The baffle-plate l, baille-plate support 9;, gas distributer 3., T-member 1,' nipple 5, base 6., pipe 7, Y-member 8, reducer plug 2), nozzle 10, gas conducting pipe 11, and
yalso threaded and adapted to screw into a central hole in the spider 3L on the interior ofthe gas distributing member thus providing for theadjustment of the baille-plate 1 relativelyto the upper end of the gas'distributing member 3 by turning the bailleplate. This member 3 is bellr shaped at its upper end to provide for the unretarded flow of the gas between its upperv edge and the baffle-plate 1. rllhis member 8 is threaded on its lower end and'screwed into the T- member ll, the opposite portion of the T- member connects'with the nipple 5 which is supported in a convex disc shaped member 6 forming a support for the burner. EX- tending from the right angle portion of the T-member land communicating therewith is the pipe 7, upon the end of which is secured the Y-member 8. In thev end of the straight portion of which is mounted a reducing plug 9 in the small portion of which is mounted a nozzle 10, which extends in Y through the Y-niember and part way into the pipe 7. ln the larger hole in the plug member 9 is secured thev conductor 11, which. is provided with a valve 12 for regulating and controlling the flow of gas to the burner.
ln operation the gas passes through the conductor l1 through the nozzle 10 into the pipe 7 and air passes through the portion,` c
8 of the Y-member 8 and the two are carried upwardly through the member 8, striking the baille-plate and then outwardly around the outer edge of the baffle-plate.
In the modified form of construction shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings the structure is the same except that connecting with the conductor 11 is a compressed air tank 13, shown fragmentarily in said Fig. 3 and air only passes through this conductor 11 and valve 12 and nozzle 10, which is air under pressure from the tank 13 while the gas passes from the conductor 14, regulated by a valve 15 and is carried with the air to the burner. The structure shown infFig. 3V
Y being usedv Where the gas is not delivered from a gas retort or under pressure. v
Though l haveV shown and described; a
lparticular construction, combination and arrangement of parts and portions and av certain modiication thereof. 'do Vnot vvishv .Y f to be limited to this particular construction, .Y
I combination'and arrangement nor the modiication thereof9 but desire to include --in the purview of my invention the construction, combination f and. arrangement substantially as set forth l'in the appendedclaims.
It is obvious that with this vconstruction there. is provided a burner in which gas is delivered to.l the0 baille-plate under pressure, carrying With it a suitable proportion of air;v that the bafle-plate may be readily ad justed relatively to the outletfoit the gas dis-l tributor 3 to provide the greatest efficiency.
and propery distribution of the blaze.-
Havingthus described my invention, what l claim asneW anddesire to secure by Letters Patent, is: n
l. A gas burner. includingl a'fuel-conducting pipe in L-sihape, a fuel distributing nozzle extending some distance into the inlet end of said fuel conductingpipe .and an I vair inlet communicating with said conducttending` some distance therein, -an air inlet j communicating with the exterior of said distributing nozzle intermediate its ends,k a
spider mountedin the opposite end of sa-id conducting pipe, apin screwed into said spider centrally therein; and a 'flat baili'ehr plate screwed onto the extended end Vof said pin spacedirom the outlet end of said conducting pipe, and-a base for supporting said conducting pipe.
lntestimony whereof, I
