[en] 5050. Gue, A. F., and Bonner, P. J. March 1. Carpets, c l e a n - ing.-Relates to a machine for brushing and beating the carpet when upon the floor. Fig. 2 shows a vertical section through the principal parts of the machine. The casing A fits closely over the carpet, and contains the rotary brush E and the beaters G which are attached to a rocker shaft G and held slightly raised by the flat spring G. The beaters are operated by means of striking wheels or projections attached to a rotating gear-wheel. The dusty air is continually exhausted from the casing A by means of the fan F, which discharges into the water tank C. The escape of dust from the tank C is prevented by a layer of curled hair C spread upon the grating C. Suitable hand-power gearing for driving the fan, the beaters, &c. is described.
