Specicaton of Letters Patent.
Patented Mar. il, 119115.
Application led February 27, 1914. Serial No. 821,363.
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, CHARLES Molnnvnn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Jersey City, in the county of Hudson and State of New Jersey, have invented an lmprovement in Bottle-Stoppers, of which the following is a specification.
My present invention relates to a bottle stopper, and particularly to that class of bottle Stoppers in which a valve is emiployed to close the outlet or discharge port of the stopper when the bottle is in pre-determined positions, in order to prevent the flow of a liquid into the bottle.
In carrying out my present invention, I simplify the construction by eliminating the weight of ball member ordinarily employed for returning and maintaining the shutoff valve against its seat when the bottle is be ing returned to its upright position, and to accomplish this object, 1 prefer to employ a conical valve and a guide upon which the same slides so as to return to its seated position at or just prior to such a time as the bottle, in being returned to its upright position, reaches a position in which the body of the bottle is horizontal, as will be hereinafter more particularly described.
1n the drawing, Figure 1 is a central longitudinal cross section illustrating my present invention. Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the parts in position, which is assumed when the contents of the bottle are being poured therefrom. Fig. 3 is also a similar view showing a modified form of the invention, and Fig. 4 is a perspective view of the member employed to co-act with the valve.
Referring to the drawing, and particularly to Figs. 1 and 2, 10 indicates the upper portion of the body of a bottle having a neck 11 adapted to be fitted with the stopper 12, in which there is a central port or aperture 13. The mouth of the bottle may be fitted with a cap 14 of the Crown Seal type, or otherwise. lnteriorly, the neck of the bottle is provided with a flange l5, the upper surface of which comprises or provides for the valve seat 16, which rests against the upper or outer surface of the flange 15, suitably secured, in position and centrally provided with a discharge port 22. Between the valve seat and the inner end of the stopper, I prefer to employ an annular plate 17 provided in spaced positions with arms 18, adapted to be forced into or otherwise connected to the stopper, in order to support the annular plate 17 and parts associated therewith in position. Associated with the annular plate 17 is a ring 19. rlhis may be connected to the annular plate by arms 20, or otherwise. lVthin the chamber provided between the inner end of the stopper and the upper ends of the valve seat in the neck of the bottle, l employ a conical valve 21. rlhe base of the conical valve is of sulficient area or extent to completely cover the port 22 in the valve seat member 16, in any position in the chamber in the neck of the bottle which the said valve may assume when thebottle is in an upright position or any position between the same and a horizontal position. ln pouring the contents from the bottle, the conical valve, as will be readily understood, falls from its seated position and a greater portion of the same lies within the ring 19 and bears against the sides of the saine. One of the positions which this valve may assume in the emptying of the bottle is illustrated in Fig. 2. In returning the bottle to its upright position, as will be apparent, when the same reaches the horizontal position the surface of the conical valve will slide against the edge of the ring, and, due to its own weight, or by the action of gravity, the valve will return to its seated position by or before the time the bottle reaches a horizontal position.
Referring to Fig. 3, it will be seen that in carrying out my invention, I may employ a pair of Stoppers 27 and 28, to the inner side of each of which tubes 29 and 32 are suitably connected. As illustrated, the tube 29 is provided with a flange 30, bearing against the under surface of the stopper 27, and also with suitable discharge ports 31, while similarly the tube 32 is provided with a flange 33 bearing against the under surface of the stopper 2.8 and is also provided with suitable ports 34s. The conical valve 35 is employed in the chamber between the Stoppers 27 and 28, and co-acts with the tube 29 to close the port in the stopper 28, while the valve 36 cooperates with the tube 32 to close the discharge port in the valve seat member 16. In this construction, as will be observed, it will be unnecessary to employ the annular plate member 17, or its equivalent, inasmuch as the valve 35 will prevent tampering with the inner valve 36..
As will be seen by reference to the drawing, I prefer to employ a cork or other stopper, indicated at 37, in the opening or port in the annular plate 17, so that in the event of attempts being made to hold the conical valve aivay from its port, in re-illing the bottle, or otherwise tampering With the stopper, this cork 37 Will be forced inwardly against the upper or outer end of the conical valve, forcing it against its seat and thus forcing the parts of the stopper to that po'- sition in which the bottle would neither be emptied or re-filled. For a like purpose, I may also employ a cork 38 Within the tube 29, as is shown in Fig. 3.
l claim as my invention:
1. In a non-reiillable bottle, a stopper comprising a conical valve, a valve seat for the same, in Which there is a discharge port, a ring co-acting with the inclined surface of the valve for returning the same to its seated position in righting the bottle, and a movable member normally seated adjacent the said ring and movable into the same to force and permanently maintain the said valve against its seat in attempts to tamper vvith the stopper.
2. In a .non-refillable bottle, a stopper comprising a conical valve, a valve seat for the Gopiel o! this patent may be obtained for same provided With a discharge port, a ring co-acting with the inclined surface o the valve for returning the same to its seated position in righting the bottle, an annular plate means for securing the said ring and annular plate together and in position in the stopper, and a movable member normally lying Within the opening in the said annular plate and movable to a position Within the said ring to force and maintain the said valve against its seat.
3. In a non-reiillable bottle, a conical valve, a valve seat for the same, having a discharge port therein, a stopper, a ring coacting with the said conical valve and upon which the same slides upon returning to its seated position, an annular plate to Which the said ring is connected, a device Jfor normally closing and opening the said annular plate, and means for connecting the said annular plate and ring to the said stopper.
