Re' ‘ newed September 4, 1937. ` In Canada March „19, 193,4 z claims. (ci. ese-_141) The _invention `vrelates to a milk '_cooler and storage cabinet, as described in the present speci fication and illustrated in the vaccompanying drawing which forms a part of the same. 'I_‘he invention consists essentially- of the' novel features of construction pointed out broadly and specifically in the claims -for novelty following a description containing an explanation in 'detail storage compartment I3, separated -from onean-4other by the vertical wallÍ I4. ' The wet storage compartment -I2 contains the '_ milk tank |5~having the corrugated wall I6 and .the feed inlet vI1 and the »feed outlet I8, and ad jacent to the feedv inlet I1 is-the crimped spread- '_ er I9. The milk tank I5 is supported by means of the bracketsAZù or held in anyother suitable man- ‘« of an acceptable form of the invention. The objects of thevinvention are to devise a' ner according to the particular requirements and milk cooler and storage cabinet that will keep- isalso surrounded bythe refrigerant' coil 2| -and the milk at vthe required degree of temperature ’ has at its lower end _adjacent to one wall of the and at the same time provide storage facilities compartment, the-baille plate 22, and this balli".` for other perishable goods and thereby enable ‘plate 22 has adjacent thereto, a circulator 2l which is connected to the shaft 2l having the pul 15 the farmers and others to keep such perishable - goods together with the milk after milking in a Í,ley 25 which is suitably operated. The v'wet storage compartment -iìlled `with common cabinet until ready for devlivery; 'to 10 " furnish a cabinet that may be easily cleaned and in which the. various parts may be removed with the least possible delay so that any repair work '20 which may occur in the course of use will be expedited and thereby save the user considerable brine or other suitable'freezing liquid and this ' liquid may be simply poured into the compart-_ _ment and is provided With-the drain 25. " The wet storage compartment I2 has the lid .21 and. the detachable milk strainer 28 is- connected expense byeliminating unnecessary delays inl to the feed inlet I1 of the milk tank I5. The dry storage compartment Il may-contain _ one or _more shelves-29 for supporting other per ishable goods, or adapted to contain cans con accumulation of bacteria which ordinarily occurs taining the milk after it- has been cooled in the and keep the milk at a high grade;` to erect a ` _wet storage compartment, and it is desired to _be ' >repairs and at the same time so equipped as to A2:5 keep _the temperature of the__milk `down to the desired degree and avoid the possibility of the milk cooler and cabinet in which all available 30 space may be taken -up for storage purposesiand .so use up anyr surplus refrigerant to cool the ad ditional space provided; to enable farmers and others to equip themselves ‘with a milk cooler and storage cabinet at a moderate cost; and generally .35 to provide a cooler and cabinet-that will be dura stored, for a period of time, and it is also espe- ' cially useful for s_uch perishable goods such as _ butter, eggs and similar edibles, and a door 30 is provided at-'one end of' this compartment, and-V it ~-will of 'course 'be seen that the dry storage ' compartment is cooled by the refrigerants in the wet storage compartment, so lthat at all times the 35 ble in _construction and of comparatively simple' ' proper temperature is provided therewithin.' . parts and efhcient for its particular purpose.
