The present invention relates to industrial
. ovens adapted to be heated by rich gas and pro
vided with means for pre-heating the air of
combustion by regenerators,‘ in particular‘ under
'fired ovens.
In rich gas-heated ovens in which the air of
combustion is pre-heated by means of regener
ators frequently explosions occur if the place

generator spaces, and is a section on line 1-1

the unburned gas remainder from the shut-off ‘started by the reversing winch (by any suitable
means not shown) at the commencement of the
20 gas distributing pipes of regenerative ovens in
tended for the production of gas and coke, one shutting-off operation of one group of the rich 20
has already 'connected‘the gas distributing pipes 7 gas valves or shortly before. When started, the
after the gas feed has been shut off, that is, while blower b presses waste gases through a check
they communicate in known manner with the valve d and an air box, or pressure equalizing
chamber e into the distributing pipe f. From'
25 . outer air, to the waste heat ?ue fora short period
of time, say one minute, by special connecting the latter the waste gases pass through three
pipes ?tted with valves. In this way the rich >way cocks g, pipes p, and the rich gas valves
h, which likewise are three way cocks, into the
‘gas still existing in the space between the shut
off valve and the burning place is sucked into horizontal rich gas distributing branches m.
The rich gas is supplied through a channel It and
the waste heat ?ue by the pressure below atmos
the ascending pipes 0 through each two rich gas
pheric prevailing in this ?ue.
This mode of operation, however, suffers from
_ the drawback that unburned rich gas arrives in
the waste heat ?ue where, if the waste gases con—
tain air, it may cause explosions. In addition, a
rather large quantityof rich gas gets lost there
The invention has now for its object to obviate
this drawback which object is achieved by inert
40 gases being blown for some time into the rich.
gas feed pipes, after the gas feed has been shut
off. This operation may takelplace immediately
before the commencement of the gas feed. Inert
gases suited for this purpose are for example the
waste gases of the oven or steam. The period of
time required for blowing-in the inert gas is short
when compared with the total duration of the re
valves h either the upper or lower of which is
opened in every regeneration period, into the'hor
'izontal rich gas distributing mains m from which
vertical pipes 12 are branched off. The oven illus
trated is constructed with hair-pin ?ues, so that
the even-numbered pipes n are connected to one
main m and the odd-numbered pipes to the other
The valves h thus communicate with
the ascending pipes o as well as with a main m
and with the pipes 12. The three way cock 9
communicates with the pipes 12 and with the waste
heat distributing pipe I and, have further each
an inlet port q for the degraphitizing air.
Upon reversal of the ?ow the following opera
tions take place: First the blower b is actuated
to establish, and thereafter to maintain, a certain
pressure in the waste heat distributing pipe f.‘

three way cocks g are then turned over so as

the accompanying drawings as applied to an un

into the rich gas branches n connected thereto,

isting in the pipes 112 and n and urging it into the
heating ?ues. Simultaneously also waste heat
gas still present in the gas main m previously
fed with gas.
- passes through the other valve h of the same pair
vof valves into the main m which did not lead gas
What I claim and desire to secure by‘ Letters
Patent is:
during the preceding regeneration, period and
pushes out the'air previously held in the last
supply rich fuel gas and degraphitizing air during
mentioned pipes m and their branches n. The
battery waste heat valves are turned over where
by the direction of ?ow in the heating. ?ues is
changed. Thereuponthe main m till now not
fed with gas is adjusted to’ gas feed by turning‘
over the respective valve h, whereby the next
regeneration period is started. The time elaps
ing between turning over' the two rich gas valves
15 It will in general be sumcient to push away by
the following waste heat the gas still present
in the distributing pipes. Therefore, simultane
ously with the initiation of the new regeneration
period,~the appropriate three way cocks y can be
‘20 turned into the positions in which, their air in
let ports q are open for the passage of degraphi
tizing air into the rich gas mains m'which are not
‘then feeding rich gas. Degraphitizing air may
thus be supplied during the ?rst section thereof,
25 for example for 10 minutes, with a total duration .
of the regeneration period of 30 minutes.
In the modi?cation illustrated in Figures 4
and‘ 5 the three way cook a is ,replaced by a
simple shut-off valve 1' which in general is per
30 manently open and is closed only when the heat
ing wall situated above the respective pipe 17 is
to be put out of operation. In this arrangement
further the pipes p have trumpet-like enlarged
ends 3 which open at va'certain distance apart
1. In the operation of aKregeneratiVe furnace
comprising a connection operable to'alternately
successive regeneration periods, the method
which consists in passing an inert gas-through
said connection during intervals prior to and 10.
following the passage of degraphitizing air
through said connection.
2. In the operation of a regenerative oven fur
nace having two sets of rich fuel gas supply con
nections, each set supplying rich fuel gas during 15
periods alternating with periods in which rich
fuel gas is supplied by the other set, the method
which consists in passing inert gas, degraphitiz
ing air and inert gas successively through said
supply connections during a period in which the 20
connections are notsupplying fuel gas.
3. In the operation of a regenerative coke
' oven battery having a stack ?ue drawing waste 7
gases away from the battery and having two .sets ,
of rich fuel gas supply connections, each connec 25
tion adapted to have its inlet portion opened to
the atmosphere, each set supplying rich fuel gas
during periods alternating with the periods in
which rich fuel gas is supplied by the other set,
the method which consists in opening the inlet 30
portionof each supply connection to the atmos
phere so that atmospheric air may be drawn
through the connection during periods alternat
ing with periods in which rich fuel gas is supplied
through said connection, and compressing waste 35
35 from the air ports of the rich gas valves h. The:
gases withdrawn from the battery and passing a
arrangement of the suction blower b and of the.
portion ‘of said gases through each connection
during a brief period intervening between each
period during which rich fuel gas is supplied
through said connection and the immediately fol
remaining members serving to blow-in the waste
heat may be the same as in the ?rst embodi
ment. The waste gases are pressed into the pipes
40 i also in this embodiment vfrom the beginning of
the reversal or shortly before and up till the re-~
versal is terminated. The trumpet ends s facing
' the air ports t are so- shaped and the pressure
prevailing in the distributing pipe I is so selected,‘
that only waste gas enters the air ports of- the
valves h and pushes away the remainders of rich
lowing and immediately preceding periods during
which the inlet portion of the connection is open
to the atmosphere, whereby waste gases, degraph
itizing air and waste gases are passed successive
ly through each connection during each period in 45
which said connection is not supplying fuel gas.
