(01. 158-91) This invention relates to oil burning. heaters for orchards and vegetable gardens. . In. the raising of fruit and vegeta vles where frost occurs, it is frequently necessary at certain 5 seasons, to provide heat for the prevention of damage to such crops by freezing.‘ Various devices have been tried for that purpose, but they ' cheaply constructed tubing. The lower end. is preferably slit to provide a plurality of legs vii for use in maintaining the tube in perpendicular position, and in event the use is on soft or culti vated soil, the legs should be adapted to be 45 forced deeply into the earth for rigidity. En trances l2 for air are provided between the legs have not been satisfactory, or adaptable for pro- and in event of the use of stove pipe or other ducing both smoke, and clean warm vapor.

Said cup is preferably provided with a ?ange It is therefore among the objects of this in15 vention to provide asimple and inexpensive device, and one which can be constructed princi- pally from. parts readily obtained in ordinary commercial stores, for burning low grade oils.

Near the lower part of the cup a series 'of relatively small holes ll are disposed through the Walls thereof and spaced above the bottom of the cup to leave a 20 cavity ill’ for receiving and burning fuel oils A further object is to provide an adjustable heater, for supplying heat to various elevations, and for directing the currents of heat and smoke therein. An oil supply chamber I8 is suitably positioned adjacent the outside of the tube and is connected 25 in predetermined directions. ‘ with the cup-by a feed pipe i9, passed through 25 A still further object is to provide a heater for - the tube wall, and is preferably provided with a the formation and dispensing of either heavy valve 20 for regulating the ?ow. of oil from the smoke and smudges as coverings and/or clean chamber into the cup. warm vapors, for radiation of warmth over vege30 table growths. . small holes to provide for slow combustion of the 30 With these and other objects that will hereinafter appear, I have illustratively exempli?ed my invention by the accompanying drawing, of which: 35 Figure 1 represents a perspective view of the assembled burner with parts broken away, ‘ Su?icient air flows into the cup through the oil and to thereby produce a heavy smoke or smudge, which is frequently preferred for appli cation on orchard trees, and requires very little oil.

These are spaced above the small er holes, and are relatively larger in diameter, and so,provide a greater supply of air, for com bustion of the oil and for the combustion oi?v the smoke or carbon, in order to produce a clean heated vapor. This is particularly desired for vegetable gardens, where a sedimentary or sooty deposit on vegetables discolors the same and is objectionable. v 38 valong one side of the slot provide supports for the bolt at such various elevations, for maintain ing the door in desired positions for regulating the doorway passage. I have described generally the functionsof the upper end larger holes in the‘ cup, and the ac— companying vanes and lobes, as if for. creating clean heated vapor, but they are not solely for such purposes. They are. also used, and impor tant, for regulating proportions of combined smoke and heat, in varying degrees, for a variety of purposes, according to the temperature of the weather, the velocity of the wind, and the kind of trees, shrubs, and vegetables to be protected The directions of the ?ow of air through the larger holes is regulated by baiiie vanes 3| , which thereby.’ are attached to, or integral with an annular cap ci?c drawing, and this speci?cation, for explain » While I have illustrated my invention by spe 15 32, rotatably mounted over the rim of the cup. , ing the general operation, yet I do not desire to The vanes slope obliquely downward from the limit my invention thereby, but desire to fully cap. and have ?attened faces on planes at right cover the invention within the scope of my claims. angles with the inner walls of the cup, for direct Having described my invention I claim as new, 20 - 'ing the ?ow of air inward and over the ?ames 1.
