UNITED STATES JOHN HENRY BAUSCHARD, OF ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA.

CATCH BASIN.

Application filed May 16, 1922.

To all whom it mmy concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN H. Bausornino,

a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Erie, in the county of Erie and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Catch Basins, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to improvements in catch basins.

Among the objects of the invention is to provide a catch basin for sewer traps which will efficiently operate to separate solids or floating dbris before entering the sewer trap; which is easy to remove and position in the usual sewer trap or catch basin well,

and which is durable in construction.

Other objects and objects relating to details of construction, combination and arrangement of parts will hereinafter appear in the detailed description to follow.

The invention is illustrated by way of example in the accompanying drawings, in WlllCl'1Z- Figure 1 is a top plan view of a catch basin when installed and showing the associated curved boxing therefor.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view of the same.

Figure 3 is a rear elevation of the curve boxing and catch-basin and showing the associated sewer trap or catch-basin well in vertical section.

Figure 4 is a fragmentary view illustrating the construction of the deflecting pan.

Referring to the drawings more particularly, W indicates generally the catch-basin well which is formed by the side Walls W and the bottom B. The walls W and the bottom B may be made of cement or mortar or the same may be a casting. At P there is shown a fragmentary portion of a sewer pipe, said pipe having the downward extending portion 10 which extends into the catch-basin well in the usual manner and for the usual purpose.

In carrying out the present invention there is provided an annular casting C of the diameter and width shown and having formed upon its inner periphery a rib 11 which is adapted to seat the ring 12, said ring 12 having a flanged rim as at 13 adapted to co-operate with the rib 11 for seating itself. Also the ring 12 is provided with the Serial No. 561,375.

permit the easy passage of solids and other debris carried by the water passing therethrough. The lower edge of the annular casting C is formed upon its outer periphery with a flange 14 which agrees in width substantially to the thickness of the walls W of the sewer trap or well, and between the outer side of the annular casting C and flange 14 may be formed a plurality of supporting web plates 16.

The lower edge of the casting C is also formed upon its inner periphery with a substantially Lshaped flange 17 to provide a seat for the lip or flange 18 formed about the upper peripheral edge of the strainer 19. The strainer 19 otherwise consists in a drum shaped casting tapering toward its lower end and having its wall formed with a plurality of longitudinally extending slots 20. The lower end of the strainer 19 has formed upon its inner periphery a flange 21. Upon the lip 18 of the strainer there is seated a lid 22 which is formed with a funnel shaped outlet or extension 23, said funnel shaped extension occurring centrally of the lid as shown.

The lid is also formed with one or more handles as indicated at 24 by which the same may be manually lifted from its position.

The catch-basin generally indicated by the reference numeral 25 comprises a substantially cylindrical shaped casting having its upper peripheral edge formed with an outwardly curved lip 26 which is adapted to seat upon the flange 21 of the strainer 19 and support said catch-basin. The upper end of catch basin is open, as shown, and its lower end is formed with a bottom 27, and also the lower end of the catch basin is formed preferably with the legs 28. The bottom 27 of the catch basin is further formed with an opening 29 and about this opening is formed a bead or flange 30, upon which there is seated a disk valve member 31. From the lower side of the valve member 31 there projects an operating'lever arm 32 which has its greater portion 33 extending horizontally as shown and fulcrumed as at 34. The portion 33 may be utilized for operating the valve member 31 in an obvious manner.

Upon the outer surface of the catch-basin there is formed a pair of diametrically op posed protrusions 35, each protrusion being provided with a socket opening 36. Also adjacent the upper end of the basin 25 and W-Jithin the upper end of the base 25 there positioned a ballle pan generally indicated ;by the reference numeral 38, said bafilepan consisting in a circular plate portion 39 having extending -fromv its periphery the fingers 4.0 which are equally spaced and which extend upwardly and at an angle with relation to the periphery of the pla e. Between each pair of adjacent fingers it) there occurs a spec ii through which a liquid directed uponthe pan may t will be observed that a liquid this manner will leave. the pan y instead radially, the purpose or which is thought to be apparent. The pan is supported in the catch-basin by the arms said arms having their outerends di Josed in suitable notches as atS formed in the inner side surface of the catch-basin. @ne of the arms is formed with a ring or loop portion adapted to serve as handle for lifting the pan from the basin.

The construction of the CZllLCll-bzSlIi and parts permit a curb box to be easily associat d therewith. In this instance a curb box s enerally indicated by the reference numeral and consists in a top wall 56, an inner wall 57 and an outer side wall 58. The outer side wall is formed with openings 59 and whereby water may enter the interior oi the box and flow through openings 60 formed in the side of the annular casting C.

It is believed from the description heretofore given that the manner of suspending the catch-basin 25 witnin the catch-basin well W may be clearly understood.

It may be here mentions l that the boxing can be so dispenaed with it so desired, and in so doing the holes 50 should be filled with cement. The boxing 55 is freely removable.

lVhile I have shown and described the preferred "form of my invention, I wish it to be und rstod that I am aware of the fact that the construction, combination and arrangement of parts may be changed by those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of the invention as indicated by the appended claims.

1'. In combination, an annular casting adaoted to be positioned over a well, a drum shaped strainer with both ends open adapted to pass through said casting, cooperating flanges between the upper end of the drum and the lower end of the casting whereby to suspend the drum, a catch basin adapted to pass through said casting and said drum, and cooperating flanges between the upper end of the catch basin ano the lower end of drum whereby the catch basin will be suspended and al o permit the catch basin to be lifted from the well.

2. In combination, an annular casting ada ated to be positioned ore'r a well, a drum shaped strainer with both ends open adapted to pass through said casting, cooperating flanges between the upper end of the drum and the lower end of the casting whereby to suspend the drum, a catch basin adapted to pass through said casting and said drum, cooperating flanges between the upper end of the. catch basin and the lower end of drum whereby th catch basin will be suspended and also permit the catch basin tobe lifted from the well, a funnel cover for the casting adaoted to direct a liquid into said basin centrally thereof, and a deflecting pan supported by said basin and immediately beneath said tunnel.

3. In combination, an annular casting adapted to be positioned over a well, a drum shaped strainer with both ends open adapted to pass through said casting, cooperating flanges between the upper end of the drum and the lower end of the casting whereby to suspend the drum, a catch basin adapted to pass through said casting and said drum, cooperating flanges between the upper end of the catch basin and the lower end of drum whereby the catch basin will be suspended and also permit the catch basin to be lifted from the well, a funnel cover for the casting adapted to dire -t a liquid into saie basin centrally thereof, and a removable deflecting pan supported by said basin directly beneath said tunnel.

l. In combination, a ring casting adapted to form a cover for a catch basin or well, an outwardly extending seating flange formed about the lower edge of the casting, a curb boxing adapted to be seated upon said out wardly extending flange of the casting and having its inner side formed with an ope ing adapted to accommodate a portion of said casting, and said casting having its side wall provided with openings whereby to communicate with said curb boxing, and said curb boxing having openings in its inner side wall and above said casting, for the purpose described.
