HOT-Al R FUR'NACE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 308,614, dated December 2, I884.
Application filed November 8, 1883.
T 0 all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, GEORGE KAMP, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ut-ica, in the county of Oneida and State of New York, haveinvented certain new and useful Improvements in Hot-Air Furnaces, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.
Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a hot-air furnace to which my improved dome has been applied. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section taken through the dome in order to clearly show its interior arrangement.
My invention relates to the heating or radiating space of a hot-air furnace.
The improvement consists in constructing the dome of a furnace, or the heat-radiating space arranged in the top of the furnace, of a series of domes united together, so as to pre sent practically but one dome, whereby a greatly-increased heat-radiating surface is obtained in this style of dome, and perfect facility is at the same time offered for the cleansing of the interior of the domes.
To enable others skilled in the art to use and make my invention, I will now proceed to describe it in detail, omitting a particular description of such parts of a hot-air furnace as are not included in my invention nor necessary to an intelligent knowledge of its construction.
Referring to the drawings, A represents a hot-air furnace of any approved construction. It is surmounted by a heat-radiating chamber, B, comprising a series of domes, G G, of the usual oval shape. A central conical-shaped radiating-space, D, rises centrally from the furnace and forms, in part, the chamber B.
' A suitable circular casting, E, forms the base (No model.)
and supports the different compartments of the chamber B, the radiating-surface D being formed integrally therewith. Shouldered bosses F form the connection between the domes C G and the casting E, The casting E is made of any configuration or diameter in order to adapt itself for use in connection with any style of hot-air furnace.
G shows the connection between the different domes O C. These pipe-connections are made large and ample, as also is the pipe H, connecting with the draft-flue. In fact, the pipe H is of sufficient diameter to enable the domes to be cleaned, when desired, by the insertion of the proper tools through that opening, the draft-flue being first uncoupled. This obviates the necessity of removing the domes from the furnace, a job which involves time and labor, in order to clean the former.
Having described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent,
composed of a series of oval-shaped domes disposed radially around a common center, a series of intercommunicating pipes, G, and a pipe, H, communicating withthe pipes G and with the domes, the pipes G and H being of such size and relation to the domes that access may be had through them to the interior of the radiator, for the purpose of cleaning, repair, &c., substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I affix mysignature in presence of twowitnesses.
