The box broken away, of a sorting ap-.

detail edgeview of the arrangea'further modification of the'in- Y supporting members is providedwith partitions 6 movable about pivots 1 and slidable doors (not shown) in the'bottom 8. Upon ledges 91provided' as usual upon the top edges'of the b xar'e slidably mounted transverse I 0 which carry upright mem- 5 bers H of the frame of] thesorting'apparatus. The frame comprises in addition angle pieces l2-' and aluminium plates or linings i3. Betweenthe aluminium lining of the casing are mounted the various members of the sorting apparatus, whilst 10 the various membersof the driving gear, such as driving chains and toothed gears which transmit the motion are mounted between the aluminum plates 13 and outer covering plates l4,'whic h latter areheld in place by screws Hi. The driving -15 gear is therefore located in a space protected from dust whichmight be contained in the rubbish. The drive is connected with the gear box i6 and is transmitted bymembers l1, l8 I9, 20, 2|; the screiv'22 and the worm wheel 23 to a shaft 24,said shaft serving as the fulcrum for a large rear door 25'and for driving an elevator chain26. The elevator chain rests upon pinions 28 on the two shafts 24 and 21-and is provided with buckets-29.

At the bottomof a' passage 30 is arranged a 25 movable charging funnel 3l, provided at themlet with bars32 which prevent articles of anv ex- 'cessive size fromentering the apparatus. About four or fivebucketsare provided one behind the other upon the chain, theremainder of the chain 30 being free from buckets. By this arrangement, rubbish is supplied to the sortingapparatus from the upperportion 33 ofthe. passage 30 at intervals. The rubbish drops upon an endless band 34 which latter passes overa guide roller- 35 and a 35 magnet-roller 36 of known type. The magnet roller 36 may, in orderatoreduceits weight,;be,fitted with aluminium wire, instead of copper as usual.

31. designates extensionsof the magnet which extend under the bandiwhile 38 indicate plates 40 provided with fingers which are magnetised by the extensions 31. The fingers ofv these plates may pass through the wall of thelpassage and between the buckets to 'remove obstructions from them; a The endless band is preferably provided upon its ledges withbrass chains. A bar 39 pivotallymounted at '40 in the casing continuously equalises the thickness of the rubbish layer; underthe action of a springdl {Afchain mounted outside the inner casing transmits rotation 'ofthe' shaft "24 to the shaft of the magnet. and likewise to all the other shafts of the apparatus.

The matter deposited at 33 gradually advances,

smoothed by the bar 39, the fingers 38, attracting the larger pieces of iron. The intense magnetic action ceases as the band passes the end of the lower extension 31 and the iron then drops bands are connected transversely by tubes 46 and form a continuously moving conveyer passing around a guide roller 66 and a head roller 6|. The latter roller is provided between the bands 48, with aluminium with which engage the cross tubes 46. The discs 52 serve for moving the carded conv'eyer band,

and the points of the said carded band are so. high that they discharge the papers, rags, or line parings of vegetables which were picked up while bearing against the bar 46, out or being caught by the teeth fitted onIII, but shorter than those 01 6|. The same applies to theother picking members of the mechanism, while all very flat objects capable of being picked up by the very short cards 46 rise upon the conveyor band, ashes pass through the bands and drop upon a peragitates the sheet.

torated sheet 63 which is mounted in contact with another perforated sheet 64, and then slide down into a.compartment 66. Very tine ashes pass through both the sheets and :drop upon an imperforate fixed sheet 66 and then slide along that sheet into compartment 61. In order to avoid any. obstruction, the sheet 64 is associated with an eccentric shaft 66 which continuously At the exterior of the casing, the shaft 66 receives its movement together with the other parts of the bands .48, by means of chain wheels. Should obstacles, for instance, stones, become lodged in conveyor bands 46, a roller 66 provided with strong teeth removes them instantly; This roller is driven by the cross tubes 46.

At the moment when a fresh series of buckets 2! arrives near the passage 26, a striker 66 of the chain 26' striking against a lever 6| associated with a rod 62, rapidly opens the door 46. Objects such as pieces of broken porcelain, glass, stones, large cinders, bottles, apples, potatoes, carrots, pieces of bread and other objects which the carded bands fail to pick up,'then tall upon another pivoted bar 63. A roller 64 provided with long points arranged at large distances apart. grips the. apples, carrots and like soit objects and discharges them into a compartment 66 whilst leaving broken glass. The plate 56 oscillates in a manner similar to the plate 46 and almost at the same time, broken porcelain and stones drop into the compartment 66 into which large cinders which pass through the endless bands are dehyered. The roller 6| detaches by means of vits teeth 62. paper, rags and fine parings of vegetables. Opposite the roller 6| there is another roller 66 'provided with double hooks 61 arranged at suitabledistances apart and located opposite slots 62a milled on to the tips of teeth 62, so as to engage the matter carried thereby. These double hooks shown in Figs. 3 and 4 carry the matter up to a brush having long bristles 66 pivoted at 66 which retainsthe paper and allows rags which have been detached by the comb III to pass. 'They thus drop, in the direction of the arrow II into a passage 12 in the form of an arch in which moves another carded band which conveys the rags into a compartment I6.

' body should pass discs 52 iormed'with teeth .move upwardly along the free space of the.

' The roller 66 and the comb ID are mounted upon a shaft provided with a return spring IO-4, Fig. 5, so that they can yield backwards in case a. large between SI and 66.

Parings of vegetables are dropped vertically in the direction of the arrow I4 and are picked up by a band 16 mounted upon two driving rollers and provided with long and fine cards. Due

- toith'eir mass, the parings are carried by the bands I6 and are detached by a comb 16 whereupon they drop into a compartment 11. On the other hand, the waste papers the surface of which is hard and is not gripped by the hands, drops into the direction of an arrow I8 and are accumulated in a compartment I9. This action is assisted-by the suction nozzle 80 of a fan 8| (Fig. l) mounted upon the shaft 2 I. The suction nozzle 80 is continuously cleared of paper which might obstruct it, by a grid 62 actuated by the oscillating sheet 54. The discharge end 63 of the fan is utilised for .blowing from the iron pieces dropping from the magnet, any papers that might have been carried along, and causes them to drop in the direction of the arrow I4.

The casingis. provided with doors 64, Fig. 2, pivoted at 65 and adapted to be opened by means of a cable '66, and a pedal 61 associated with a footboard 66 so that operators stepping upon the iootboard can open the doors 64 and use both hands for throwing directly into the compartments any objects which grid 32 has retained.

In order to prevent the operators from attempting to push with their hands or by means of sticks rubbish such as bunches of flowers into the apparatus, the grid 32 is pivoted at 69 and fitted with two rollers 90 which allow the said grid to the drag-line casing, when the charging funnel 6| is closed by means of the gear SI-92. The charging funnel 3| is preferably provided with lateral enlargements as shown in Figs. 6 and'7.

Roller 66 and comb III are mounted on a frame Ill-4 and motion is given to the said roller 66 by means of two spur gears, not shown in the drawings. One of these spurgears is keyed on to the axle of roller 66, the other being keyed on the axle ID-I. The return spring 10-2 controls the distance between double hooks 61 and slots 52a.

Motion from axle 24 is given to the other parts of the apparatusby means of pinion 93, Fig. 5,.

chain 64, and chain wheel 65, the axle of which carrying another chain wheel 96 whereby the chain 61 transmits power to the pinion 96 driving the roller 5|. Two other pinions or chain wheels 66 and I04 are keyed on to the'axle of the said roller '5I. The wheel 9!, drives the chain wheel IIII by means of the chain I 66, and the said chain wheel IIII acts as driving member of the eccentric crank pin 56 which causes the connecting rod I02 to shake the perforated sheet 54, the said sheet 64 being hung on the same axle as roller 5| by the linkage I03.

The second chain wheel I04 drives the endless carded band I5 by means of the chain I05, a set 0! two sister wheels HIS-401, a'chain I08 and a chainwheel I09.

Another chain wheel I I0 gives motion to the roller 64 by use of the chain I II driving the chain wheel .II2. Bearings numbered from Hi! to I3I bear the shafts of the chain wheels hitherto mentioned.
