IMPROVEMENT IN WELL PIPES.
TO ALL WHOMv IT MAY CONCERN:
VBe-it known that I, JAMES BUDQ, of Pittsford. in the county of Monroe, and State ofI New York, have invented a new and useful improvement in the construction of Pipe Wells; and I do hereby declare that the following is a-full and exact description thereo'referenee being had to the accompanying drawings and to the letters of reference marked thereon. t I' i Figure l represents a `flanged point for pi-pe wells with tubing attached.
Figure 2 represents the tubing withdrawn to the proper place, showing strainer and recess .surrounding the strainer; forming a well.
Figure 3 represents a horizontal section of the centre of ilanged point.
The nature of rny invention consists oi' the flanged point a with strainer 2' attached, the whole to be attached to well-tubing, as an improvement on pipe wells. Y.
To enable others skilled in the art to make and use my invention, I will proceed to describe its construction and operation. A l l I construct a anged point, a, shown in tig.' l, of either east or wrought iron, or steel, made .hollow to the line of demarcation, as shown in fig. 2, ,by red lines, for a twofold purpose: First, for receiving. and holdingV strainer z'. This strainer z' is made fast inside of point a by a small .piece of iron driven down inside of strainer z'. Second, the point a, with well-tubing attached, is driven in the ground from the inside and centre of anged point a, by a steel rod, e; the rod e keeps the `point a in a straight course. The Iianges b I), on opposite sides. of point a, figs. l and 2, are made tapering to a. point upwards and'downwards. When the point is driven in the ground these flanges b Z1 will leave a groove on opposite sides ot'tubing, in which water can follow. When it becomes necessary to withdraw the point and tubing, theianges tapering upwards will cut their way through easily. The flanges b are also for the purpose of preventing the point a from turningwhen the Well-tubingf is unscrewed from the point a. The point a and pipe or tube f are fastened together by acoupling-joiut, c. This couplin'gjointc is screwed tight to the pipe or tubef, and loosely to the point a, leaving a space between therend oi' pipefand toptof: point af; the coupling-joint c having two or more holes m around the centre, for the purpose of admitting'wliter tothe inside oth pipe or tubef, and by which it can be ascertained if water is found, as the poi-nt of` steel rod will show whenlwithdrawn. The pipe f is from one to three feet in length,
andis larger in din-meter than the tubing attached above the same, for the purpose of fitting loosely over the strainer z'. The strainer z' is also fromone to three feet in length, and made of suitable metal, and perforated for the purpose of admitting water. To form a Well, the pointu, with tubing attached, is driven into the ground to a depth of fifty feet, or less, it water is reached. When water is reached, the tubing is unsorewed'from the point a, and the point a'is either driven deeper, a few inches less than the length of strainer, or the tubing is withdrawn Within an inch or more of the-top of strainer z', shown in fig. 2, keeping the upper part of strainer inside of the lower end of tubef, and by adapting either of the above modes, a recess, o, is formed around the strainer z', which constitutes the well, and by attaching a pump t'o the end of tubing above'groundthe Water canpbe drawn to the surface above. n is a collar with flanges same as pointa, tapering each way, fitted loosely over the outside of pipe or well-tubing, and is used for the purpose oi" stopping offv quicksand from .following the grooves made by flanges b Zz on point a. This collar can be driven down at the same time with the tubing, or it can be drivenldcirn afterwards, on' the outside of tubing.
What I claim Aas my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
I claim the combination and arrangement of tubesfo, thepanged collar n, and flanged point a, the whole substantially as and for the purpose set forth. p v
