Jenks and Hart Injector, Patent Model

This model was submitted to the U.S. Patent Office with the application for the patent issued to James Jenks and Thomas J. Hart, Detroit, Michigan.
The principal feature of this injector is the method provided for varying the area of the water passage that surrounds the steam-forcing jet. A conical nut screwed onto threads on the outside of the steam tube forms one wall of the water space. The position of the nut on the tube and the area of the water space are changed by turning the nut. The nut is turned by a handwheel, worm, and worm wheel.
