NON-REFILLABLE BOTTLE.
Specification of LettersPatent.
Patented Nov. 3, 1914..
Application filed March 24, 1914. Serial No. 826,995.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HERMAN SMEDs, citizen of the United States of America, residing at Port Richmond in the county of Richmond and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Non-Refillable Bottles, of which the following is a specification.
The general object of this invention is to refine the construction of that form of container known generally as non-refillable bottles.
Another object is to reduce to a minimum the number of component parts in such a device, without impairing the elficiency of the same in any degree. And a still further object is to provide a non-refillable bottle which may be effectually locked against the introduction of liquid through the neck thereof, and also be insured against spurious liquid being introduced thereinto by mechanical means. And to these ends the invention resides in a closure adapted to be locked in the neck of the bottle, and provided with a gravity-actuated valve for controlling the passage of liquid through the neck of the bottle.
Other objects will appear and be better understood from that embodiment of my invention, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming part thereof, in which- Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of a portion of a bottle having my invention positioned therein. Fig. 2, is a horizontal sectional view taken onthe line 2-2 in Fig. 1. Fig. 3, is a detail perspective view of the closure, and Fig. 4, is a detail perspective view of the valve.
The closure 5 may be made of any suitable material such as porcelain or the like, and in structure may be cylindrical or any other cubical shape, whereby to conform to the shape of the bottle-neck wherein it is positioned; but for the purposes of illustrating the present embodiment of the invention, the closure is shown cylindrical so as to be fitted snugly into the neck of the bottle A, as shown. Adjacent to the upper end of the closure or at any other suitable location therein, a lateral bore 6 is provided on the periphery thereof, and is adapted to comcide with a notch 7 provided on the interior of the bottle-neck. A latch 8 is fitted within this bore 6 and is projected normally outwardly by the force of a coil-spring 9 which is harbored within. the bore; and by virtue of this spring-pressed latch 8 engaging within the notch 7, the closure may be securely locked within the neck of the bottle as shown.
The closure is provided at one end thereof, with a cut-away portion 10 and at the diametrically opposite side the closure is further cut away as at 12, which cut-away portions communicate with each other by means of the obliquely disposed bore or duct 11. Thus it will be seen that as the bottle is tilted, the contents will fill the cut-away portion 10 and obviously flow into the recessed or cut-away portion 12, by Way of the bore 11, and to enable the liquid to flow out of the bottle, an opening or bore 13 is provided at the upper end of the closure and at one side thereof as shown.
In order to prevent a subsequent filling of the bottle, after the same has been emptied of its original contents, a valve 14-, is provided, and is located in the valve chamber 15 provided in the closure. The valve-chamber is preferably rectangular in shape and is formed by providing a longitudinal slot through the diameter of the cylinder at the middle thereof, or appreciably so. This chamber 15 divides the bore 11, and it will be seen that the valve is adapted to block the passage of liquid through the bore, when the bottle is in an upright position. The valve may be made of any suitable material and is rectangular in shape so as to conform to the valve chamber, and in order that the valve may be normally positioned in longitudinal relation with the diameter of the cylinder, its length is substantially equal to the diameter of the latter. 1 It will be seen by referring to Fig. 1, that the height of the valve is not greater than half the height of the valve-chamber, thus as the bottle is tilted, the valve is displaced by force of gravity and allows free passage through the bore 11, for the exit or outflow of the liquid; but as the bottle is righted, the valve drops back into its normal position and closes the bore 11, as shown in Fig. 1.
In order to prevent any surreptitious tamporing with the valve by mechanical means, a baffle 16 is provided within the cut-away portion 12 and is spaced between the bores 11, and 13. This baflie is shown in the form of an obliquely disposed tongue which may be formed integral with the closure, and
operates to prevent the introduction of a wire or the like into the bore 11 for the reasons above mentioned.
hat is claimed as new is: v
In combination with a bottle neck having an interiorly located notch portion, a closure adapted to be fitted within the said bottle neck, the closure being provided with oppositely located cut-away portions at the side thereof, the said cut-away portions being inter-communicating, the said closure also having a bore provided at one end thereof and communicating with one of the cutaway portions, a battle obliquely disposed on the closure and formed integral therewith, the said baffle being positioned in HERMAN SMEDS.
