"Vintage Machinery" entry for Huber Manufacturing Co.
The invention consists in an exhaust-steam feed-water heater and a mud or sediment extractor so connected and arranged with the boiler proper and the pump that the water is forced in hot at the side of the extractor, and escapes from the top thereof in a still hotter condition, and mostly free of sediment or solid foreign matter.
The invention further consists in dispensing with a considerable number of fire-tubes and substituting a single large tube or flue therefor, and placing in the latter a hollow bridge, through which steam is conducted for superheating it before reaching the steam-chest.
The invention further consists in constructing the smoke-stack in sections, which slide telescopically one within another, and are secured in any adjustment by means of a friction-clamp.
