ASH REMOVER
Sebastian Steinmitz, Scranton, Pa.
Application December 4, 1937, Serial No. 178,179
4 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and useful
improvements in ash removers particularly for
stoker equipped furnaces, although it will be un
derstood that the apparatus may be used with
any furnace for which it may be found adapted
and desirable.
'I‘he primary object of the invention is to pro
vide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, means
for supporting a receptacle beneath a furnace for
10 receiving ashes therefrom, together with a mech
anism of novel construction and arrangement
for conveying said receptacle from beneath the
furnace and elevating same for convenient re

pair of pulleys 6 the purpose of which will be
presently set forth.
Mounted in the pit I is a track which is desig
nated generally by the reference numeral 'I. The
track 'I comprises a pair of outer rails 8 and an
inner or intermediate rail 9. The rails 8 and 9
are mounted on suitable supports I0 and it will
be observed that the outer end portions of said
rails are elevated, as at II. It will also be noted
that the inner rail 9 includes a comparatively
abruptly raised portion or “hump” I2.
Mounted to travel on the track 'I is a truck
which is designated generally by the reference
moval and emptying.

on the rails 8. The other end of the truck I3 is
15
an ash remover of the character set forth which
will be comparatively simple in construction,
strong, durable, highly efficient and reliable in
use, compact and which may be manufactured
25 and installed at low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects
and advantages of the invention will become ap
parent from a study of the following specification,
taken in connection with the accompanying draw
30 ings wherein like characters of reference desig
nate corresponding parts throughout the sev
eral views, and wherein:
Figure 1 is a view in side elevation, showing
the receptacle in position for receiving ashes
35
from the furnace.
Figure 2 is a side elevational view, showing
the ash receptacle in elevated position for re
moval.
Figure 3 is an elevational view, looking at the
40
lower end of the apparatus.
Figure 4 is a top plan View of the truck or
carriage.
Figure 5 is an elevational view of the upper
45 portion of the outer end of the pit.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will
be seen that the embodiment of the invention
which has been illustrated comprises a pit struc
ture I which extends beneath the furnace (not
50 shown). The inner end portion of the pit I is
open at its top, as at 2, for the passage of ashes
from the furnace. The pit structure I includes
a top or cover plate 3 on which a closure 4 is
hingedly mounted, as at 5. Mounted on the outer
end of the pit I, adjacent the top thereof, is a
supported by a single wheel I8 which travels on
the rail 9. The reference numeral I9 designates
a chain which is secured, at an intermediate
point, to the truck I3. The chain I9 is trained
around the pulleys 6 and secured at its ends to
the free end portion of the closure 4.
It is thought that the operation of the appa
ratus will be readily apparent from a considera
tion of the foregoing. When the hinged closure
4 is swung upwardly to open position, the truck
I3, through the medium of the chain I9 running
on the pulleys 6 and connected to said closure,
is pulled from the position shown in Fig. 1 of
the drawings to the elevated end portion of the
track -I where the receptacle I5 may be conven
iently removed and emptied, as shown in Fig. 2
of the drawings. As the truck i3 approaches the
outer end of the track 1 said truck is brought
to an almost horizontal position by the hump
I2 in the inner or intermediate rail 9.
0
After
the ashes have been emptied the receptacle I5
is replaced on the truck I3 and said truck is
started back down the inclined track 'I to the
position shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings. This
return of the truck I3 by gravity to its position
beneath the furnace may be controlled through
the medium of the closure 4.
It is believed that the many advantages of an
ash remover constructed in accordance with the
present invention will be readily understood and
although a preferred embodiment of the appa
ratus is as illustrated and described, it is to be
understood that changes in the details of con
struction and in the combination and arrange
