Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 15., 1916..
Application filed July 3, 1914. Serial N0..848,868.
To. allwhom it may concern- Be it known that I, LOUIS DUROOI-IER, a citizen of the, United States, residing at lVatervliet, in the county of Albany and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Non-Refillable Botties, of which the following is a specification.
An objectof the invention is to provide a bottle which cannot be conveniently refilled after the original contents have once been withdrawn therefrom.
The invention contemplates, among other features, the provision of a bottle so constructed and arranged that after it has been filled with the original contents certain parts which subsequently form a part of the bottle are secured thereto so that they will permit of pouring the original contents of the bot tle therefrom, but will prevent the filling of the bottle with a different or spurious fluid after the original contents have been extracted, thus also preventingdilution of the original contents. The bottle is particularly designed to accommodate whisky or other liquors, although it will be understood that it can be used for various purposes.
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 taken through the bottle showing the same closed; Fig. 2 is a similar view showing the bottle tilted, with the valve in open position; Fig. 8 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line 3-3 in Fig. 1; and Fig. is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line l-l in Fig. 1.
Referring more particularly to the views, I provide a bottle body 10 terminating in :1 preferably tapered neck 11 which is adapted to receive and support a hood 12 formed at its lower end with a tapered wall 13 and adapted to fit over the tapered neck 11 and to which the hood is secured by a cementitious material or the like. The upper end of the neck is flattened to form a seat 14 and a portion of the seat abuts against the circular shoulder 15 formed in the lower portion of the hood 12, thus insuring the rigid seating of the hood upon the bottle body.
The hood 12 provides a chamber 16 in which is arranged a valve 17 normally reposing upon the seat 14:, the said valve con ingits lower end normally closed by a: cork or other sealing member 20,.saidsealing member being preferably made of a very light material such as cork or the like to insure the proper operation of'the valve within the valve chamber 16.
The hood 12 is provided with a circular bulged portion 21 forming a second chamber 22 communicating with the chamber 16, with the upper end of the valve adapted to be advanced into the chamber 22 when the bottle body is tilted, a ball weight 23 in the nature of a valve being loosely arranged in the chamber 22 as shown, and adapted to normally engage the valve 17 when the same is in position to seal the neck of the bottle body, said ball weight being also adapted to limit the forward movement of the valve when the bottle body is tilted and adapted to ,abut against an upwardly inclined flange 24 formed with the hood to restrict the exit from the chamber 22 when the bottle body is entirely inverted, thus closing the bottle body against the entrance of a fluid which a person may endeavor to force into the bottle body through the exit of the hood. A baiile member 25 is secured in the hood above the flange 24C and is provided with openings 26 through which the fluid is adapted to pass. The usual cork or stopper 27 is adapted to be arranged in the upper end of the hood and abut against the battle 25 when it is desired to ship the bottle from one place to another.
After the bottle body has been filled with the desired fluid the hood with its compoc nent parts is sealed to the neck 11 as mentioned heretofore, with the stopper 27 in place to close the exit of the hood, the bottle can be readily shipped from one place to another. Now when it is desired to extract some of the contents the cork 27 is removed and then by tilting the bottle body it will be apparent that the valve will be unseated and advanced from the hood to permit the contents of the bottle body to flow through the chambers 16 and 22 and the openings 26 to the interior of the hood, the mentioned ball weight 23 being adapted to control the move ment of the valve 18 and also constitute a valve when in engagement with the flange 24; to prevent a refilling of the bottle by any person desiring to fill the same with another or inferior fluid.
From the foregoing description it Will be apparent that the bottle described is of a simple construction and can be cheaply inanufactured, and on account of the few parts involved cannot readily get out of order and will eiiectively accomplish the desired. result.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
In a non-refillable bottle, a body, a tapering neck upstanding therefrom and pro-- vided with an inwardly extending flange a hood engaging said neck and formed with a centrally arranged annular bulged portion, a substantially cylindrical valve slidably mounted in the hood and having one end open and the other end. closed and tapering, a cork stopper inserted in the open end of the valve and adapted to seat onsaid flange and alball cooperating with the Walls of the bulged portion and the tapering end of the valve for limiting the movement of the latter Within said hood.
In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
