FRIEDRICK GITTINGER, OF JERSEY CITY HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY.

EEG-'Tarrina DEVICE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented J une 1 7, 1913.

Application le'd November 11, 1912. Serial No. 730,757.

l To all 'whom t may concern.'

Be it kno-Wn that I, FRIEDRICH GITTINGER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Jersey City Heights, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Keg-'lapping Devices, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to devices for tapping kegs and barrels, and has especial reference to devices for tapping kegs of beer, and has for its object' the provision of an improved construction of tapping devices comprising a bung having an integral web provided with an opening and segment-al slots, rotatable valve members mounted on the two sides of said web and secured together for simultaneous rotation over said segmental slots, and a nozzle member adapted to enter and be locked in engagement with said bung and provided with means for rotating the valve members when moving into locking position.

My'invention will be described in detail hereinafter and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which,

Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of a keg showing my improved tapping device applied thereto and shown in elevation; Fig. 2, a vertical sectionalview of the tap ping device showing the nozzle in position and the tapping tube extended through the valve and bung; Fig. 3, a vertical sectional View of the bung member on a plane 90 removed from the plane of the section in Fig. 2, showing the valve in a closed position; Figs. 4 and 5, plan views of the bung in closed and open positions respectively;

Fig. 6, a plan view showing the top plate of the valve structure removed; Fig. 7, a

view in perspective of the top plate of the valve; and Fig. 8, a bottom plan view of the nozzle.

In the drawings similar reference characters will be used to designate corresponding parts thoughout the several views.

In Fig. 1, 'iy improved tapping device is shown applied to a keg designated A and consists essentially of the two members designated 1 and 2,. being thebung member er1-- gaging the head of the keg A and a nozzle member that is removably secured within the bung member 1. The hung member 1 is substantially cylindrical in contour and provided with the screw threads 1a that engage the` head of the keg. The bung member 1 is also provided wit-h a web 3 intermediate of its top and bottom, Said web 3 having an opening 4 therein eccentric of the bun member 1 and concentric segmental slots 5. The upper edge of the bung has inwardly extending lianges 6 with inclined lower edges 7, said flanges G having their terminals spaced apart as clearly shown in Figs. 4, 5 and 6, to receive lugs on the nozzle member to be hereinafter described.

8 indicates al circular plate rotatably mounted within a recess formed by an inwardly extending annular shoulder 9 on the bung member l and provided with an opening 10 that is adapted to aline at times with the opening 4 in the web 3 and downwardly extending pins 11 that engage the segmental slots 5 in said web. The upper surface of the plate 8 is also provided with sockets 12 for the purpose to be hereinafter described.

13 indicates a plate mounted on the under side of the bung member l and secured to the pins 11, said plate having its edge formed with a reduced/,portion as shown at 13a forming an anii'i/la/n/ shoulder 14 that is slightly smaller in"l diameter than the interior of the bung member 1.

15 indicates a packing gasket inserted between the web 3 and the plate 13 and provided with an opening 15L the opening 13b in said plate 13, said gasket 15 beingy also secured to the pins 11 for simultaneous movement of the gasket with said plate 13 and the plate 8 heretofore described.

16 indicates an annular acking gasket mounted between the lower ec ge of the bung member 1 and the upper surface of the re- ,duced portion 13a.

The nozzle member 2 has a vert-ical opening 17 therein in which is slidably mounted the delivery tube 18, said delivery tube being appreciably smaller in diameter than the opening 17 and having a pipe connect-ion 19 on its upper terminal with a rotary valve 20 controlling the flow of liquid through said pipe 18. The lower terminal of the opening 17 is enlarged as shown at 17a to conform in size to the opening 4 in the web 3, said opening 4 as well as the other openings adapted to aline therewith as heretofore described, being enlarged to permit recep-l tion of a wear ring 21 screwed to the lower terminal of the deliverytube 18.

22 designates a packing nutmounted in a threaded socket 23 in the upper terminal of 25 indicates a lateral air vent nozzle communicating with the vertical opening 17l and adapted to receive an air supply tube 26 asshown in Fig. 1. The, air entering the opening 17 proceeds downwardly around the pipe 18 into the keg A to vent it. The lower terminal. of the nozzle member 2 is formed circular to conform to the interior of the bung member 1 as shown `at 27 and is provided with diametrically disposed projections 28 that register with the spaces be* tween the terminals of the. {ianges 6 here tofor'e described to permit entrance of the nozzle into the bung member f1.

29 indicate pins extending downwardly from the lower surface ofthe nozzle member that are adapted to enter the sockets 12 in the circular plate 8 heretofore described when `the nozzle member is inserted into the bung member and then by rotating t-he nozzle member through an arc of substantially 120, the lower terminal 17a of the opening 17 is brought into alinenient with the open l ing 4 in the web 3 and at the same time, the lugs 28 will be engaged by the inclined shoulders 7 on the flanges 6 to clamp said lugs and the nozzle into engagement with the bung member 1.

30 indicates a packing gasket mounted on the under surface of the nozzle member* 2 and provided with an opening 30,a that coincides with the enlarged lower terminal 17a of the opening 17 and openings 30b through which the pins 29 extend.

In operation, the nozzle member 2 and the pipe 18, with its inner terminal and wear ring 21 moved into the enlarged opening 17 a, is inserted into the bung 1. The pins 29 upon the lower terminal of said nozzle member 2 engage the openings 12 in the valve member 8,l which is secured to the plat-e 13, as hereinbefore described, and upon the rotation of the said nozzle member 2, the openings in the valve members 8 and 13 and packing ring 15, and said web 3, register with each other, and the pipe 28 is inserted through said openings into the receptacle containing the liquid. Air being let'into the interior of the receptacle thro-ugh the nozzle 25 and openings 17 and 17a, the liquid will flow through the pipe 18 to the valve 20, where it can be drawn olf at 9. rllhe inclined shoulder 7 of the bung 1 engages ,the por-- tions 28 of the lower terminal of said nozzle member 2, upon the rotation of said /member 2, and locks it in a position whereby the openings of said web, packing, and valve members are held in registration with each other.

Having thus described my invention what I claim is 1. In a tapping device for kegs and barrels, a bung member adapted to engage the keg or barrel, an integral web in said bung member intermediate of the ends thereof` and provided with a delivery opening and segment-a1 slots, a valve member revolubly.
