UNITED sTATEs PATENT oEEio GUSTAF L. REENSTIERNA, 0F CONGERS, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO EDITH IB. GLEASON, 0F JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY.
VALVE.
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, GUSTAF L. REENSTI- ERNA, a citizen of the United States, residing at Congers, in the county of Rockland and State of New York, have invented cer-A tain new and useful Improvements in Valves, of which the following is a specilication.
This invention is directed to the provision ofan improved form of valve such as may be employed in closing the outlet from a tub, sink, bottle or other device of a similar nature. v
The invention resides in the provision of an improved device of this character which is of marked simplicity of construction, which consists of but few parts that can be readily made and assembled, which may be manufactured at low cost and which may be conveniently operated. As used in connection with a tub the valve takes the place of a stopper ordinarily used in devices of this character and renders unnecessary the use of a chain which is frequently in the way and often becomes broken. As used in connection with a bottle, my improved valve takes the place of the stopper or cork ordinarily employed and which is frequently mislaid so that it cannot be readily found when required. Then so used, my improved valve is permanently affixed to the bottle and may be operated as desired to open or effect a closure of the opening in the bottle.
I have illustrated the preferred embodiment of my invention in the accompanying drawings in which- Figure 1 is a central section of the valve, certain portions thereof being in elevation, Fig. 2 is a section on a plane at a right angle to the plane of the section of Fig. 1, showing the stopper in elevation and raised to the position for opening the valve, Fig. 3 is a section on line 3-3 of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 is an elevation of a slightly modified form in which the invention may be employed.
Referring to these drawings, 5 indicates a suitable tubular member to which the valve is to be applied. In Figs. 1 and 2 this member 5 is shown as a tube having a flange 6 at its upper end and provided with threads 7 When so constructed the valve may be readily inserted in position and secured by means ofthe threads 7. Thus, the
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application led February 1,1913.
Vrectly opposite each other and Patented Aug. 26,1913. Serial No. 745,606.
valve may be inserted in apipe connection leading from a tub or sink with the flange 6 overlying the bottom of the tub or sink and the threads 7 engaging corresponding threads on a tubular part depending from the bottom of the tub or sink. This tubular member 5 is provided with cross-piece 8 formed integral with the tube 5. This piece 8 is shown in cross-section in Fig. 1 and in elevation in Fig. 2. The upper end of the member 5 is coned to provide a seat 9 upon which the member, which is adapted to close the valve, may be seated.
The member for closing the valve is shown at l0 and consists of a body, one portion of which is of frusto-conical shape so as to provide a conical surface adapted to rest upon the seat 9 to close the valve.
The body 10 is provided with any suitable operating means such, for instance, as the ring 11 illustrated in the drawings, which is formed integral with the body 10. On the under side of the body 10 are two ldepending wings 12 in the form of sections of an annulus. These wings are shown in vertical section in Fig. l, in elevation in Fig. 2 and in cross-section in Fig. They are curved concentric with the body 10, are diare separated by spaces which are approximately as wide as the wings themselves.
The cross-piece 8 has a central opening therethrough adapted to receive a rod 13 which passes through the cross piece and has its threaded end screwed into a threaded opening in the body 10. A spring 14 is coiled about the rod 13 and one end thereof bears upon the cross-piece 8 while the other end bears upon the head of the rod 13.
Fig. 1 shows the valve in the closed position. It will be noted that the conical surface of the member 10 is in engagement with the valve-seat 9 and is drawn down into hard engagement with the valve-seat by the spring 14 which acts through the rod 13. When in this position, the two wings 12 lie on opposite sides of the cross-piece 8, the latter extending through the spaces between the wings 12. When it is desired to open the valve the movable member is manipulated by means of the ring or handle 11. The movable valve-member 10 is raised and then turned through approximately ninety degrees. The raising of the member 10 is effected by compressing the spring la, the
rod 13 sliding through the opening in crosspiece 8. rThe member 10 is moved in this way until the ends of the wings 12 are above the cross-piece S and member 10 is then turned until the wings 12 are carried over the cross-piece. The valve member is then in the position illustrated in Fig. 2. In this position, the ends of the wings 12 rest upon the cross-piece S and the spring 14 holds the member 10 down upon the crosspiece. lVith the parts thus positioned, the valve is open for not only are the wings 12 spaced slightly from the interior wall of the member 5 but also the spaces between the wings 12 permit free flow of a fluid to or from the interior of tube 5. To close the valve again it is merely necessary to turn member 1G through ninety degrees by means of the ring 11, whereupon the spring 14 will draw the valve-member to the Fig. 1 position.
The construction shown in Fig. 4 differs from that illustrated in Fig. 1 in that the threads 7 are omitted. The valve above described may be applied to an ordinary7 bottle and such a construction is illustrated in Fig. 4. l/Vhen a bottle is to be opened for a short period of time at frequent intervals, it often happens that the cork is mislaid, while the bottle is open, and can not be found when needed. lVhen my improved valve is applied to a bottle, it is possible to open and close the bottle without detaching any of the parts employed, so that these are always at hand when needed.
Fig. 4 shows such a construction, this diftering from the Fig. 1 construction only with respect to the construction of the member 5.
Having described my invention, what I claim as new therein and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:
A valve comprising the combination of a tubular member provided with a conical seat and an integral cross-piece extending across the opening in the tubular member, a valve-member provided with a conical surface adapted to engage said seat, a handle on the valve-member, a rod secured at its upper end to the valve-member and extending through an opening in the cross-piece and having a head at its lower end, a spring coiled about said rod between the cross-pieceand the head on the lower end of the rod and two curved wings integral with and depending from the movable valve-member, lying diametrically opposite each other and spaced apart, said wings being adapted to lie one on either side of the cross-piece when the valve-member is in engagement with the valveseat and to have their ends engage the crosspiece to hold the valve-member in the open position, substantially as set forth.
This specification signed and witnessed this 9th day of January, 1913.
