BURNER Filed Dec. 5, 1951 Patented July 25, 1933 var-m ATE PATIENT" OFFICE WILLIAM E. GILLIS', OF HUMBLE, TEXAS, ASSIGJVQJR OF ONE-FCURTH TO D. H. GUNN AND ONE-FOURTH TO H. B. GUNN, BOTH HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS BURNER Application filed December a, 1931. Serial No. 578,723.
This invention relates to a burner. An object of the invention is to provide a burner of the character described particularly designed for the purpose of utilizing crude petroleum, and similar products, for
fuel. 7 1 I a Another object is to provide a burner so constructed that the fuel may be heated and wholly or partly vaporized before it is dischz'zrged into the combustion chamber and igni ed.
Another object is to provide a burner which is'of verysimple construction, may be cheaply produced, which will not be liable to get out of order and which is very efficient for the purposes intended.
With the above and other obj ects in view this invention has particular relation to certain novel features of construction, operation and arrangement of parts an example of which is given in this specification and illustrated 1n the accompanying drawing,
wherein M Figure 1 shows a longitudinal sectional view of the burner, and
Figure 2 shows a cross sectional View taken on the line 22 of Figure 1.
Referring now more particularly to the drawing, wherein like numerals of reference designate similar parts in each of the figures the nun'ierals 1 and 2 designate outer and inner tubular jackets concentrically arranged and spaced apart. The chamber 3 between these jackets is closed by'the annu- 35' lar end plates 1, 5 which are welded, or
otherwise secured to the ends of these jackets. V
Spanning said chamber are the length A wise partitions 6, 7, which extend inwardly against said jackets and said end plate and whose inner ends are spaced from the end plate 5.
A fuel supply line 8 enters the outer end of the chamber 3 on one side of the partition 7 and a fuel feed pipe 9 leads out from the outer end of said chamber from the opposite side of the partition 6. I
There is an elongated steam nozzle pipe 150 10' arranged axially within and spaced from from the-end plate 4 and which fit closely the inner jacket 2 and this steam nozzle pipe terminates in a nozzle 11. The outer end of the steam nozzle pipe has a stufling box 12 through which the fuel feed pipe 9 is fitted and this pipe 9 terminates in a fuel nozzle 13 within the nozzle 11.
Entering the outer end of the steam noz-1 i rpass around the lnnerends of said part1- tions and back toward the outer end of the chamber and will pass thence through the nozzle pipe 9. Steam, or air, under 1 pressure will be forced through the line 14 and nozzle pipe 10 out'past the nozzle 13 and through the nozzle 11 and will further vaporize the fuel issuing out through the nozzle 13. Air will flow inwardly through the inner jacket and the vaporized fuel will be mingled therewith and the mixture will be forced, in combustible, vaporous form into the combustion chamber where it is ignited andconsumed.
The chamber 3 is provided with a drain cock 14 through which water that may con- Q 'dense therein may be drained therefrom.
The drawing and description disclose what now considered to .be a preferred form of the invention by way of illustration only while the broad principle of the invention will bev defined by the appended claims What I claim is 2- 1. A burner comprising a tubular body composed of an outer and an inner jacket defining a chamber between them, a nozzle. pipe extending axially through the inner jacket and terminating in a nozzle, a fuel supply pipe entering the outer end of the chamber, a feed pipe leading out from the outer end of the chamber and extending inner jacket defining an air passageway, a"
nozzle pipe extending axially into, and terminating in, said passageway, lengthwise partitions spanning the chamber and extending lengthwise from the outerend thereof and being spaced from the inner end thereof, a fuel supply pipeentering the outer end of the chamber on one side of said partitions,
' a fuel feed pipe leading from the outer end f and terminating in :said nozzle,
acent the inner end thereof.
of" said chamber on the other side of said partitions and extending axially through pipe ad- 8. Arburner comprising a tubularburner body composed of an outer acket and an inner acket spaced from 'the outer acket,
said jackets defining a closedchamber said 1 inner jacket defining an air passageway, a nozzle pipe extending into sa dpassageway and terminating in a nozzle therein, lengthwise partitions spannlng the chamber and extending from the outer end thereof and being spaced from the inner end thereof, a
, fuel supply pipeentering the outer end of the chamber on one side of said partitlons, a fuel: feed pipe leading from the outer. end
of said chamber on the other side of said partitions and extending axially through,
and terminating. in, said nozzle pipe and nozzles on said terminating ends of said nozzle pipe and feed pipe. 7
4; A burner comprising a tubular body having an axial air passageway therethrough and having a closed chamber around said passageway, a fuel supply line entering the'outer end of the chamber, a fuel feed line'leading outfrom said outer end of the chamber, partitions spanning said chamber between, and on opposite sides of, said lines and leading from the outer end of the chamber and spaced from the inner end thereof,'a nozzle pipe projecting into said passageway, said feed line extending into said nozzle pipe and nozzles on the inner ends of said nozzle pipe and feed line respectively." 7 1 1 WILLIAM H.
