WILLIAM BISSET, OF PENARTH, ENGLAND. I

APPLIANCE FO R LOADING SHIPS WITH COAL OI? THE LIKE- Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 25,1907. 1

Application filed August 12, 1905. Serial No. 273,961.

T0 at whmn it may concern.-

Be it known that I, WILLIAM BIssET, a subject of the King of Great Britain and Iredand, and a resident of 5 Herbert Terrace,

Penarth, county of Glamorgan, Great Britain, have invented certain new and useful improvements in appliances for loading ships with coal and other similar substances or merchandise consisting of a distributingbox forming a suspended cone, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to an appliance for loading ships with coal and other similar sub stances or merchandise and which by the addition of extra slides as set forth enables the coal to run down to the bottom of the ships hold, and in order that my said invention may be readily understood reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying sheets of drawings in which Figure 1 represents a half elevation of the apparatus constructed in accordance with my said invention. Fig. 1 a half sectional elevation; and, Fig. 2 a side elevation thereof.

Like letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the said figures.

. In carrying my said invention into effect I form the distributing and loading box a of metal, rectangular in shape (preferably square) and of a depth greater than the width of said box and suspend the same from the crane hook by means of the chains 5 connected to the corners of the flared mouth 0 of said box.

In the sides (1 of the box a I arrange an opening e partially closed by the doors f suspended on hinges 9 so as to open automatically under pressure from Within.

At a suitable height from the top of the box and parallel with the openings thereof I arrange a plate It (see Fig 1 extending across said box and on either side of said plate I attach the chutes 1', arranged at a fixed and suitable angle, for instance 45 passing underneath the doors f thus forming a suspended cone. These chutes I also connect with the box a by means of the plates 9' which serve the purpose of guiding the coal on to the slides Z connected with the chutes '11 by means of the hinges m or equivalent devices. These slides Z I provide at their lower ends with hooks n adapted when required to engage with eyes or slots 0 carried on the upper ends of the additional slides p when running the coal down to the bottom of the ships hold.

To vary the angle of the slides the same are provided with brackets g to which are attached cords, chains or the like 1' fastened at their outer ends to the combings of the ships hatchways, or in any suitable place, the angle of the cords chains or the like being according to circumstances.

It is to be noted that the box or receptacle A, is provided with the reinforces or braces A which terminate above the box and are provided with eyes to allow the chains B to be connected thereto.

It will be observed that there is also an opening below the lower edge of the gate f, for a moderate or light discharge of coal and that the side walls of the chute are so high above the said lower edge of the gate, that in the case of a heavy discharge and the con sequentoutward swing of the gate between the said sides, the lower edge thereof will not be swung above the upper edges of said sides, whereby the gate operates as a guard to prevent coal during a heavy discharge from spilling over the sides of the chute.

Although I have only shown two additional slides yet I wish it to be understood that I do not limit myself to such as I may attach more or less according as circumstances dictate.

In use the charge of coal entering the box a is broken and diverted in both directions by means of the plate h, the coal passing through the openings left by the doors but should there be any tendency to choke the doors f automatically yield under'the pressure within thereby giving increased opening for the passage of the coal to the chute and slides Z and p down which it is guided by the walls 8 thereof.

In some cases I find it advantageous to secure the doors f. This I effect by any suitable arrangement of cross bars as at t (see Fig. 2).

What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is 1. In a device of the character described, a receptacle, braces for the receptacle extending thereabove and terminating in eyes, the sides of the chute but leaving a dissupporting connections secured to the eyes charge space between it and the bottom of and a chute depending from the receptacle. the chute.

2. An appliance for loading ships for coal In testimony whereof I have affixed my 5 or like material comprising an elevated bin signature in presence of two Witnesses.

with upright sides, a chute having an in- WILLIAM BISSET clined bottom and upright sides arranged in connection with the upright sides of the Witnesses:

bin, a gate pivoted to the upper portion of JAMEs JoHNs, 10 the bin side, and projecting down between DAVID JoNEs.
