Application filed April 13, 1921. Serial No. 461,153.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CARL A. KULEN- KAMPFF, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New York, borough of Manhattan, in the county and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Ice-Cream-Storage Apparatus, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This inventionrelates to storage devices for ice cream and has for an object to provide an improved construction "of storage units which will permit the ready circulation of the cooling medium without interfering with the insertion and removal of the filled container of ice cream.

Another object of the invention is to provide a storage apparatus for ice cream and the like in which a double walled container is presented with an arrangement whereby the parts may be readily separated for repair or renewal.

In the accompanying drawing- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a complete storage apparatus disclosing one em bodiment of the invention.

'Figure 2 is a'l'ongitudinal vertical section through Figure 1 approximately on' line Figure 3 is an enlarged fragmentary longitudinal vertical sectional view through one of the double walled receptacles embodyinjury to said receptacles or the inserted ing{ the invention.

I eferring to the accompanying drawlng by numerals, 1 indicates a box or large container adapted to receive a number of receptacles 2 which in turn receive the containers carrying the ice cream or other material. A filling 3 of cork or other suitable material is positioned in the" box 1' and packed carefully around the double walled receptacles 2. As indicated in Figures 1 and 2, a pipe 4 enters the box or container 1 and is intended to supply a cooling medium, as for instance, cool brine to the receptacles 2.

By the arrangement indicated in Figure 2, the brine enters the first receptacle 2 and passes from the bottom thereof to the top and then down the connecting pipe5 to the bottom of the next container. After the brine passes to the second receptacle it moves upwardly to another connecting pipe 5 and down to the third receptacle and so on through all the receptacles used until it is finally discharged out the end pipe 6. Each of the receptacles 2 is constructed as shown in Fi re 3 from which it will be observed that'each receptacle is provided with an out side casing 7 and an inner casing 8 connected at the upper end but spaced apart at all other points. A supporting ring 9 is provided and formed with an annular notch 10 in which the up er edge of the casing 7 is fitted and to whic it is secured in any desired manner, as for instance, by

solder 11. The ring 9 is provided with an inwardly extending flange 12 whereby a gasket 13 may rest on said flange and in fact the entire upper part of the ring 9 so that the ring 14 may be pressed tightly against the gasket. Preferably, a number of clamping screws 15 are used for clamping the ring 14- against the ring 9 and thereby providingv a tight joint which may be readily opened up whenever desired. The ring 9 is formed with a depending flange 16 having an annular notch 17 in which the upper edge of the inner casing 8 is fitted and to which it is secured, preferably by a line of solder 18 whereby a smooth and uninterrupted sur face-is provided from the upper edge of the ring 14 to the bottom'of the inner casing 8. This will prevent any leakage of cooling means arranged in the space 19 while at the same time permitting containers for ice cream or other material to be readily inserted into the various receptacles 2 without containers.

In the manufacture of ice cream and similar articles, the ice cream 18 prepared and frozen in a container by many well known methods now in common use and after freezing 18 placed in the receptacles 2 for storage ,until the same has been sold. The storage of prepared and frozen ice cream is an old and well known method of doing business but much difliculty has been produced from the present storage devices now in use.

By arranging the parts as shown in Figure 3, not only may the cans containing the ice cream be readily inserted and removed without injury to the cans or to the receptacles 2 but the ice cream may be kept properly cooled.

What I claim is-:-

1. In an apparatus for storing ice cream,

a receptacle comprising an outer casing, an inner casing spaced from the outer casing,

a ring having an annular recess positioned so that the upper part of the outer casing Will fit in said annular recess, a second ring having an interior annular recess positioned so that the upper part of the inner casing will fit therein, securing means for securing said rings to the respective casings, said second mentioned ring having a flange projecting Within the first mentioned ring and means for rigidly clamping said rings together.

2. In an 1ce cream storage apparatus, a receptacle comprlslng, an outer caslng, an

inner casing spaced therefrom, a ring secured to said outer casing and having an inwardl extending flange, a second ring fitting atWise agalnst sald flange and provided With an inwardly extending flange projecting within the first mentioned ring, the flange of the second mentioned ring being rigidly secured to said inner casing and clamping screws for clamping said rings rigidly together.
