"The nature of this invention and improvement consists in combining and arranging certain plates, valve seat, valves, and valve box in such a manner as to produce an apparatus to be applied to the steam cylinder of an engine instead of the usual escape pipe by which the main body of the steam may be applied to various useful purposes without producing any reaction or resistance on the piston by the steam which remains in the cylinder after the main body of the steam has been let off and applied to the above mentioned purposes."
