APPLICATION FILED APR. 29,1913.
1,099,706., Patented June 9, 1914,
INVENTOR fi'azz/f Zz'/1 can 6 7 ATTUHNEY,
PEANUT t LINDEEN, 0F CLENTON, ILLIN 01S.
FUNNEL.
To all whom it may; concern Be it known that I, FRANK Lrnnnnn, acitizen of the United States, residing at Clinton, in'the county of Dewitt and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Funnels, of which the. r'ollowing is a. specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing. a
This invention relates to a funnel and has special reference to a funnel which is provided with a simple and eliicient means for preventing the receptacle which 1s being filled from running over.
Another object of this invention is the production of a.flexible neck which 18 used in combination with the funnel for prevent ing the air escaping from the receptacle which is being filled by passing around this flexible neck, this flexible neck being adapted to easily bend in case the upper portion of the funnel is hit, and in this manner prevent the receptacle from overturning.
With these and other objects in view, this invention consists of certain novel combina tions, constructions and arrangements of parts as will be hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawing: Figure l is a perspective view of the tunnel showing' the same positioned upon the bottle. F1g. 2 is a central vertical section of the device showing the same carried by a portion of the bottle. 7 tion of the tunnel illustrating how the same may give in case it is accidentally hit, and in thismanner prevent the receptacle which is being fillcd from overturning. Fig. 4 is a longitudinal section taken through a rod used in connection with this device. Fi 5 is a section taken on line 5 5 of Fig. 4'. looking in direction of the arrow. Fig. 6 is a section taken through a portion of a slightl modified form of a rod and lifting member.
Referring to the accompanying drawing by numerals it will be seen that the funnel is provided with the usual frusto-conical body 1 havinoa rim 2 adjacent the lower end thereof. This body 1 carries a flexible neck 3 which is made of any suitable material such as rubber, which clamps or its upon the rim 2 thereby holding the neck in position in connect1on with the body. When the funnel is positioned. upon a receptacle to be filled, this flexible neck 3 will fit snugly in the memberwhich is being filled, and in Specification of Letters ltatent.
' I Application filed. April 29, 1913.
Fig. 3 is a central vertical sec- Patented June 9, 1914:. Serial no. 7%,3fl8.
this manner prevent the escaping of. air upon the side portions of the same j'A. bridge el is positioned upon the upper portion of the body 1 so as to extend entirely across the same; the bridge being provided intermediate its ends w1th a largebody 5.
vThis body 5 is provided with an opening 6 through which the flexible hollow rod 7 is adapted to pass as shown in Fig. 3. This flexible hollow rod '7 is provided at its upper end with the threaded portion 8 upon which a lifting ring 9 is positioned, this lifting ring 9 being held firmly in position by means of the nut 10. Y In this manner it will be seen that the ring 9 will normally rest upon the enlarged body 5 and will prevent the hollow rod 7 from falling down to the receptacle which is being filled. This hollow rod 7 carries a conical stopper 11 upon which is positioned a rubber casing or other suitable material 12 which is adapted to fit upon the lower end of the rubber neck 3 for I preventing the passage of liquid there through.
When this device is used, the funnel is positioned upon the receptacle which is to he filled, as illustrated in Figs. .1. and 2 The neck 3 will fit snugly into the receptacle which is to be tilled so as to prevent the passsage of air between the outer ortion of the neck and the inner portion 0" the opening formed. in the receptacle. The liquid may then be poured into the body 1 until the receptacle is filled. In order to allow the filling of the bottle or other receptacle, the Flexible rod 7 is formed hollow, so as to allow the air from the receptacle to pass therethrough, and out through suitable apertures 18. As soon as the receptacle is filled, the liquid will enter the lower portion of the flexible hollow rod 7 whereby the air will be prevented from passing into the rod and in this manner the flow of the liquid into the receptacle will be stopped. A. person may then grasp the ring 9 and lift the funnel from the receptacle. If any liquid happens to be in the body 1 and neck 3 when the same has been lifted from the receptacle,
the member 11 will be drawn up so as to allow the casing 12 to engage the wer po rtion of the neck 3. In this manner it will be seen that the funnel may be carried from place to place with ut spilling: the liquid containedthcreiu- When the funnel is in position upon a receptacle, if the same is hit accidentally, the neck 3 will easily bend lie so as to allow the body 1 to give without danger of upsetting the receptacle.
In the form illustrated in Fig. 6 there is provided a hollow rod 14: which is open at its upper end, as illustrated at 15. This rod 14 is provided with the usual threaded portion 8, nut 10 and lifting ring 9. In this form it will be seen that the air can escape through the portion 15 while the ring 9 will form an efiicient means for preventing any foreign object or dirt from passing or falling into the interior of the rod. It will also be seen that the openings 13 and 13 are so positioned under the ring 9 so as to be shielded from any dirt which might pass into the rod 7 and thereby clog the passage.
From the foregoing description it will be seen that a'simple and efiicient funnel has been produced which will efliciently stop the flow of the liquid into the receptacle which is being filled, so as to allow the liquid to come into engagement with the rod 7 and thereby cutting off the air passage, and is also provided with a simple means for supporting the device upon a receptacle without danger of the same bein overturned.
Having thus described the invention, What is claimed as new, is
A funnel comprising a body portion, a flexible neck extending from the lower end of the body and adapted to engage the neck of a bottle'to permit lateral movement of the body relative to the bottle, a supporting bar extending across the top of the body, a flexible air-conducting tube extending throu h the body and neck and slidable through t e
