FAUCET.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 6,1916.
Application filed September 14, 1915.y Serial No. 50,626.
To all whom 'it may concern.
Be it known that I, WILLIAM STinGLrrz, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York, borough of Brooklyn, county` of Kings, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Faucets, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
This invention relates more particularly to water faucets or similar fixtures.
One of the principal objects of the invention is to provide a simple and efficient faucet in which a tapering valve seat is provided which is adapted to fit into a similarly shaped recess in a rotary valve, cock, or plug so that any wear may be automatically or readily taken care of and all leakage avoided, thus overcoming many objections incident to devices of this kind as ordinarily constructed.
A further object of the invention is to provide simple and efficient means whereby all leakage about the valve stem is effectually avoided.
With these and other objects in view, the invention will be hereinafter more particularly described, with reference to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and will then be pointed out in the claims at the end of the description.
In the drawings, VFigure 1 is a vertical section, partly in elevation, Vof one form of device embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a sectional plan taken on the line. II-II of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a sectional plan taken on" the line III- III of Fig. 1; and Fig. 4 .is a detail section, partly in elevation, showing how the parts are constructed to prevent leakage.
The body or casing 10 of the faucet or device is provided with the usual flange 11 and a threaded portion 12 by which the said faucet may be secured to a source of water or other supply. The casing has an inlet opening or passage 13 and a spout portion 14 providing an outlet passage 15. The body or casing 10 may be of any desired shape and may be constructed in the usual or in any preferred way.
A bridge or web 16 extends across the casing or body 10 so as to form a division between the inlet passage 13 and the outlet passage 15. A part of the bridge 16 is horizontally arranged when the faucet assumes the position shown in Fig. 1 and extending upwardly from the part 17 is an integral tapering seat portion 18, said bridge being integral with the casing 10. This tapering portion 18 is tubular for the greater part of its length so as to provide a chamber 19 for the water to pass upwardly from the inlet passage 13.` The upper part or end of the portion 18 is closed and intermediate the ends thereof are lateral openings or passages 21. The openings 21 are adapted to communicate with similarly shaped lateral openings or passages 22 in cock, plug or valve 23. The valve 23 is recessed at its lower end and said recessed portion is tapering so as to fit over the tapering seat portion 18 and form a tight joint therewith, the said joint being formed lby grinding the valve to its seat in the usual or in any preferred way. The valve 23 as well as the portion 18 are elongated and are located within a chamber 24V formed in an extension 25 of the casing or body 10 and held to or formed as a part ofthe valve 23 is a stein 26 on the outer end of which is. a handle 27. rlhe plug or valve 23 has two pins 28 and 28 either one of which is adapted to engage a stop or pin 29 projecting inwardly within the chamber k24 from the extension 25.
If the handle 27 is rotated it will be evident that the valve or cock 23 will also be rotated until either one of the pins 28 or 28a engages the .stop 29, one of said stops, as 28 for example, serving to indicate when the water or other fluid is turned on and the other stop as 28a being to position the valve or cock 23 when the water or other fluid is turned off. It will be evident that when the valve is in the position shown in Fig. 1 the water or other fluid may pass into the casing 10 into the chamber 19 out through the openings 21 and 23 into the chamber 24 and through the outlet 15, and by 'giving the handle a quarter turn the valve 23 will be Arotated so as to shift the position of the openings 21 and 23 relatively to each other and thereby place a solid part of the valve over the openings21 thusshutting off the water orvother fluid.
To prevent leakage about the valve stem 26 a flange 30 is formed at the outer part of the tapering plug or valve 23 and arranged to be seated against the outer surface of the/ flange 30 is a metal washer 31. The metal washer 31 is loose upon the stem 26 and on the outer portion of the washer is a leather or other gasket 32. The gasket 32 is adapted to seat against the outer end of the extension of the faucet casing or body and adapted to hold the gasket and washer 31 in position is a packing nut 33. The nut 33 is adapted to fit about the stem 26 and has a threaded portion adapted to engage the outer threaded end of the eX- tension 25. The nut 33 has a recess and adapted to be seated in this recess is a packing ring or washer 34, said washer being adapted to rest against the gasket or washer 32. The nut 33 is adapted to force the washers 34, 32 and 31 into close contact and serves also to force the tapering plug or valve 23 to its seat on the tapering valve seat portion 18.
It will be evident from the construction herein shown that effective means is provided whereby in case of wear between the valve and seat such wear may be automatically or readily taken care of, and that effective means is provided whereby leakage is preventedv along the stem without the use of the ordinary packing gland.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and Vdesire to secure by Letters Patent 1. A device of the character described, comprising a casing having inlet and outlet passages, a bridge forming a division between said passages, a long tapering valve seat portion extending from said bridge and providing an inner chamber forming a communication with the inlet passage, said valve seatA portion having lateral openings adapted to communicate with said chamber and with the outlet passage, a tapering valve having its inner end recessed to fit over and providing a long seat connection with the valveseat portion and having lateral openp ings adapted to communicate with the lateral openings oi said valve seat portion to adapt the fluid passing through the inlet and outlet passages to be turned olf or turned on, spaced pins on said valve and a vlug or stop on the interior ofthe casing with which ,said pins are adapted to Contact 'for determining the position of the valve relatively to its seat, a valve stem, a flange on said stem, a metal washer, a. gasket, and a packing nut movable about the stem and hav ing a threaded portion adapted to engage a threaded portion of the casing and force the packing into close contact with the stem to prevent leakage thereby and force the valve to its seat.
2. A device of the character described, comprising a casing having inlet and outlet passages, a bridge forming a division between said passages, a long tapering valve seat portion extending from said bridge and providing an inner chamber forming a communication with the inlet passage, said valve seat portion having lateral openings adapted to communicatewith said chamber and with the outlet passage, a tapering valve having its inner end recessed'to fit over and providing a long seat connection with the valve seat portion and having lateral openings adapted to communicate with the lateral openings of said valve seat portion to adapt the fluid passing through the inlet and outlet passages to be turned off or turned on, spaced pins on said valve vand a lug or stop on the interior of the casing with which said pinsJ are adapted'to contact for determining the position of the valve relatively to its seat, a valve stem, a ange on said stem, packing about the valve stem' and means whereby the stem may be manually rotated.
