This invention relates to furnaces, and it is an ures 1 to 3 my improved furnace comprises an
object of the invention to provide a furnace hav

ing two vertically spaced heating chambers both
horizontally disposed and in desired ‘communica
cal member 2 of desired dimensions and in paral- ‘
stituting the primary heating chamber and the
lower chamber constituting the secondary heat
lel relation. The upper member I provides a
primary heating chamber A and the lower mem
ber 2 provides a secondary heating chamber B.
The front end of the upper member I is closed

It is also an object of the invention to provide
10 a furnace of this kind comprising an upper pri
mary heating chamber and a lower secondary
heating chamber one in communication with, the
other, the upper or primary chamber having
means therein to eifect a spreading of the flame

The invention also has for an object to provide
a furnace of this kind which can be readily. em
ployed for heating air or water or other fluid, to
20 gether with means whereby the heating chambers
comprised in the furnace are eii'ectively main
and extending through the head 3 and lining 4 is
an oil nozzle 5 leading from a suitable source of
oil supply. This nozzle 5 extends inwardly of the
upper or primary heating chamber A and between
two baiile plates 6 and ‘I. The plates I and 1 are
vertically spaced and, extend entirely across the
chamber A with the upper plate 6 terminating a 15
distance inwardly from the rear end of the lower ‘
plate '1. These plates 6 and 1 are preferably of
cast iron and are held in assembled position in
any manner preferred. '

Intel-posed between the side marginal portions 20
of the plates 6 and 1 are the series of longitudi~
naliy spaced ?re bricks 8 there being one of such
tained in desired assembled relation. '
The invention consists in the details of con
struction and in the combination and arrange
25 mentoi’ the several parts of my improved furnace
series at each side. These ?re bricks, as herein
disclosed, are rectangular in form and are dis
posed transversely on an angle of approximately

thirty degrees although I do not wish to limit my

pensive and otherwise more convenient and ad
vantageous for

vance of the nozzle 5 and at a point'beyond the
longitudinal centers of the plates 6 and ‘I is ar

adjacent portions of the members I and 2. Each
pair of standards S are held in clamping en

terposed stay bolts l8.
In Figures 1, 2 and 3 I illustrate the members
I and 2 as arranged within an enclosing casing

provided in their lower portions with air inlet
openings I9 while the upper portion of this cas

the desired carrying off of the air heated within
From the foregoing description it is thought to
be obvious that a furnace constructed in accord
ance with my invention is particularly well adapt
ed for use by reason of the convenience and fa
cility with which it may be assembled and oper
15
ated, and itwill also be obvious that my invention
is susceptible of some change and modi?cation
without departing from the principles and spirit
thereof and for this reason I do not wish to be
understood as limiting myself to the precise ar
rangement and formation of the several parts
herein shown in carrying out my invention in 25
practice except as hereinafter claimed.
I claim:—

I
A heating unit comprising two vertically spaced
heating chambers in communication with each
other, a'discharge ?ue connected to the lower 30
portion of the bottom chambena pair of hori
zontally disposed vertically spaced apart plates
in the upper chamber extending across the width
trated in Figures 4 and 5 is substantially the
of said chamber, said plates having their front
ends abutting against the front wall of the upper 35
chamber and their rear or inner ends spaced in
same as that hereinbefore set forth with respect
wardly from the rear wall of the upper chamber,
to the ?rst form of my. invention except that the
a plurality of vertically disposed ba?le members
positioned adjacent the side edges of said plates
and extending inwardly thereof in parallel planes

' The embodiment of the invention as in
-
upper member I' at its forward portionand to
one side of ‘its vertical center has in communica
tion therewith, as at 2|, an end portion of aleg
23 of a substantially U-shaped conduit 24. This
conduit 24 is horizontally disposed and is of de
sired dimensions and has its second side leg 25
in communication, as at 26, with the lower mem
ber 2' through the forward upper portion thereof
and to the side of the vertical center opposite
to the point of communication 20 of the leg 23
with the upper member I’. This conduit 24 pro
and at an oblique angle to the flow of gases
through the upper chamber, a fuel nozzle ex
tending through the front wall of the upper
chamber, a substantially centrally disposed baffle
in the upper chamber confronting said nozzle and
a second series of vertical baffles extending for
wardly of said latter ballle and disposed inwardly
of said ?rst named vertical bailles.
