LOW LEVEL MULTIJET CONDENSER Filed March 21 1923 {Moe dot Pau!A.Ba racd Patented Feb. 10, 1925'.


Low-LEVEL Mowtan'r connsnsnn.

L 'pummn filed 1 mm 21, less. serial no. cameo.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, PAUL A. BANCEL, a citizen of the United States, a resident of Nutley, county of Essex, and State of New Q Jersey, have invented a certain Low-Lave Multijet Condenser,

ing is a specification ings.

T is

m mnlti-jet condenser,

to a condenser having nozzle. I c

The objects of the ihventi'onare to increase the surface area of the jets or streams of water emitted by the nozzles, thus economizing in the use of water and also increasing the efficiency of the com enser.

Further objects of the invention will hereinafter appear and the invention is shown in one of its preferred foriuh in the accompanying drawings, in \Vl1iCl i- Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional elevation of the condenser,

Figure 2 is an enlhrged detail longitudiaccompanied by drawinvention a low level it more particularly h improved form 11:11 sectional view of one of the nozzles, an

Figure 3 v is a transverse sectional view on the line 3-3 of Figure 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.

Referring to the drawings, the condenser comprises a casing having the lower section or body A, the upper section or inlet'hea B, the diffuser G and tail pipe D which is glartially submerged within the tank or sump Water flows over tank to the outlet G. The tail piece 1) is preferably provided with the counter weighted flap valve H. Steam is adinitte to the condenser casing through the steam inlet J and the inlet head is preferably provided with the man hole cover K.

A water head L in the 11 per part of the casing to which'water is admitted through the water inlet 0, is provided with a series oi nozzles P,-emitting orjets of water directed towards the throat Q of the difiuser' at the outlet of the casing.-

d area of the jets,

1 ing a casing the weir F from the ,P

d of the diffuser,

convergent streams A combining-tube B may if desired he providedin the usual manner surrounding the convergent streams ofwater and steam passes through the combining tube 1 between the vanes or guides S to comminglc of which the follow with ,the water.

The nozzles P "are ofi such construction that onolinozzle ior'ms'a hollow stream of water as indicated diagrammatically and 5 2 and 3. Obviously in detail, in Figures f different forms of nozzles may be used forproducing hollow streams of water and I \avc illustrated one suitable form of nozzle in Figures 2 and 3.. Each nozzle referably com rises the nozzle proper indicated by the le ter P and a central core piece or. guide vane T suitably connected to the noz zle, as by means of the webs U, so that the water from the water head passes down between the webs [lot the nozzle around the central guide vane or core piece T, thus forming a hollow jet.

The multiplicity of convergent hollow jets or streams of water increase the surface for the purposeof condens- .in'g thestcum and increase the efficiency of the condenser with greater economy in the use of water.

I claim: I

A low 1 vol multi-iet condenser, comprishdving a diffuser at its lower end and a contracted throat at the entrance of said difiuser, a water head in the upper ortion of the casing and a ring of remov- 3 able nozzles on said head for directing converging streams of water to the said throat each niizzle containing a. central guide-vane and webs connecting said guide vanes to the walls.of the nozzles for 35 forming hollow streams of water from the nozzles.

In testimony whereof I lmv'c signed this specification.
