The arrangement describedwith reference to
the drawings can be utilised to obtain a homog
eneous mixture of liquid with gas as for example
a mixture of air and petrol or heavy oil for ‘petrol?
driven or Diesel engines and can replace the
usual carburetters for engines of all descriptions.’
The arrangement also notably improves upon the
results obtained with existing mixers especially
with regardto the intimate nature of the mixture
on which depends the thermo-dynamic ei?ciency
of the explosion.
I claim:
1. A centrifugal mixer for fluids comprising a
centrifugal rotor, conduits for supplying the
?uid components to the rotor, valves controlling
the said conduits, means for controlling one of
said valves, said means comprising a slotted link,
means for controlling the other of said valves,
said means comprising a link adjustable in the
slot of the ?rst link, and means for adjusting the
be position of said second link to vary the propor
tional openings of the two valves without effecting
operation of the ?rst link.
2. A centrifugal mixer for ?uids for use for
example in the preparation and supply of an
explosive mixture comprising a centrifugal rotor,
conduits for supplying the ?uid components to
the rotor, valves controlling the said conduits,
means to vary the ratio of the openings of the
valves, and means coupling the valves to a slotted
link, said link having two independent controls
whereby the amount of mixture supplied and the
relative proportioning of the components may
be separately adjusted.
