Gas manufacture

Abstract

Coal, oil shale and the like are distilled by being charged from a hopper into a trough from which a scoop attached to an inner rotary tube feeds the material through this tube from which it passes through holes into an outer rotary tube to which the inner tube is secured at the end, the material being finally discharged into a hopper. The inner tube is provided with a tumbler having radiating arms and adapted to knock or scrape off any caked material in the tube, a similar tumbler may be provided in the outer tube which is heated by hot gases in flues. The tubes are rotated by gearing and the distillates escape through a pipe. A flexible joint between the tube and chamber comprises a diaphragm carrying a jointing ring held against a collar on the tube by tension springs.
