W. J. MATTHEWS. NON-REFILLABLE BOTTLE. APPLICATION-FILED APR. 3. 1914 Patented July 20, 1915.
law/2 FFTQ,
WILLIAM J. MATTHEWS, OF YOAKUM, TEXAS, ASSIGNOR 0F ONE-HALF T0 HARVEY H. SWIFT, 0E YOAKUM, TEXAS.
NON-BEFILLAIBLE BOTTLE.
Specification of Letters Patent. I Patented July 20, 1915.
Application filed April 3, 1914. Serial No. 829,368.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, WILLIAM J. MATTHEWS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Yoakum, in the county of Lavaca and State of Texas, have invented new and useful Improvements in Non-Refillable Bottles, of which the following is a specification.
An object of the invention is to provide a non-refillable bottle which, when the original contents have once been withdrawn therefrom, cannot be commercially filled a second time or refilled with a spurious or inferior fluid.
The invention contemplates, among other features, the provision of a bottle which is so arranged and constructed that after it has been once filled and sealed and the con tents of the bottle are subsequently removed therefrom, the said bottle cannot be con veniently refilled, thus preventing spurious dealers from fraudulently imposing upon the public fluids other than genuine.
In the further disclosure of the invention reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, constituting a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference denote corresponding parts in all the views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view of the bottle showing the same in normal position; Fig. 2 is a similar view of the bottle, showing the same tilted and the valve in forward position; Fig. 3 is a plan view of the bottle; and Fig. 1 is a horizontal sectional View taken on the line f-t in Fig. 1.
Referring more particularly to the views, I disclose a bottle body 10 having a neck 11 provided with a passage 12 communicating with the interior of the bottle body, the said passage being adapted to be normally closed by a stopper 13, provided with a horizontal opening 14; into which is adapted to extend the free end of a spring 15 arranged in a recess 16 formed in an angular flange 17 on the neck 11, it being readily apparent that when the stopper 13 is placed in position to close the passage 12 the free end of the spring, passing into the opening 14 of the stopper, will seal and lock the stopper in the passage, thus closing the passage and preventing removal of the stopper. The passage 12 is preferably termed the filling passage, and this passage is only used when the bottle body 10 is filled with the desired fluid.
An outlet passage 17 is enlarged to form a valve chamber 19 in which is loosely arranged a ball valve 20 normally reposing on the seat 10 to close the outlet passage 17, and the said valve chamber 19 has a plurality of auxiliary passages 21, 22 communicating therewith and at their outer ends uniting in a chamber 23 normally closed by a cork 24.
As mentioned heretofore, the bottle body is filled by pouring the fluid through the passage 12 and the passage 12 is then sealed by means of the stopper 13, as mentioned heretofore. The cork 24 normally closes the passages 21 and 22 and when it is desired to pour some of the contents of the bottle therefrom, the cork is first removed and then upon tilting the bottle body the ball valve 20 will be advanced in the valve chamber 19 and will pass beyond the inner end of the passage 22 so that the fluid, passing through the passage 17, will pass into the valve chamber 19 and thence through the passage 22 to the chamber 23, from which it will be poured into a glass or other receptacle adapted to receive the same, it being readily apparent by referring to the views that during this operation the ball valve 20, advanced to the farther end of the chamber 19, will close and stop up the passage 21. When the bottle is emptied, if a person should try to fraudulently refill the same by forcing fluid into the valve chamber 19, when the bottle body is inverted, it will be apparent that at the moment the fluid enters the chamber 23 and passes into the passage 21 the said fluid passing through the passage 21 strikes the ball valve, thus returning the same to close the outlet passage 17 and prevent any fluid from entering the body of the bottle. It will, therefore, be apparent that the ball valve, when arranged at either end of the valve chamber, will prevent fluid from being forced through the passages 21 and 22 into the valve chamber and thence into the interior of the bottle.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
In a non-refillable bottle, the combination with a bottle body having a neck provided with an inlet passage to the bottle body and a stopper receiving chamber, a closure normally sealing the inlet passage, a valve chamber formed in the neck and communieating with the interior of the bottle body, a no ber having said auxiliary passages terminating therein, whereby said auxiliary passages Will be normally closed by the last mentioned stopper.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature 15 in presence of tWo Witnesses.
