Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented 0011.31, 1916.
Applicationfiled'March 10, 1914. Seria1-N'o.'8 23;753.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, STILEs F. LowE, a citizen of the -United States, residing at Corsicana, in the county of Navarro and State of Texas, have invented new and useful Improvements in Faucets, of which the following is a specification.
The present invention relates to improvements in faucets primarily intended for use in elevated tanks or cisterns or other exposed places, and the principal object of .the invention is the provision of a faucet of this character which is efficient and reliable in operation, and which will not retain water therein so that danger of freezing of the water in the faucet will be effectively overcome.
Other objects and advantages of the device will appear as the nature of the invention is more fully understood, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification and in which there is illustrated a simple and satisfactory reduction of the improvement to practice.
In the said drawings: Figure 1 is a side elevation of a faucet constructed in accordance with the present invention, Fig. 2 is a central vertical longitudinal sectional view of the same, and Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view approximately on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 is a detailed sectional view of certain parts to be hereinafter described.
In the drawing, 1 designates the body or barrel of the faucet, 2 the outlet spout, and
3 the inlet spout. The body, above the outlet spout 2, has exterior threads which coact with interior threads provided upon the flange of a cap 3'. This cap is centrally formed with a threaded bore 4 for the re ception of the threaded operating stem 5, the same being provided with a handle 6. The threaded operating member 5 is provided with an interior threaded bore 7, which receives the threaded upper portion 8 of a valve stem 9. It will be particularly noticed that the threads formed upon the operating stem 5 and the threads formed Fupon the valve stem 9 upon its upper portion 8 are disposed in a right and left handed relation respectively. The advantage of this will be readily appreciated when it is considered that the slightest turn of the handle 6 will quickly seat or unseat the valve to-be now described. Thestem'9has a square or rectangular portion 10 which passes through a guide 11' provided within the'barrel above the inlet portion thereof, the
immediately after the operating stem 5 en-- gages the threaded upper portion 8 of the valve stem 9. The lower portion of the stem is provided with a collar 12, and with a reduced threaded extension 13, the same receiving a valve 14 which is in the form of a disk and which has its upper edge beveled, as at 15, to correspond with the inwardly beveled edge of the inlet spout 3, which is designated by the numeral 16 and which forms the seat for the valve. Interposed between the valve 14; and the collar 12 is a compressible washer 17, and a nut 18 is employed for sustaining the valve and the washer upon the valve stem. By such an arrangement it will be noted that the valve is retained upon the exterior of the faucet body, and by operating the handle 6, the valve may be raised or lowered to close or open the valve, as will be readily understood. The .inlet and outlet spouts are provided with threaded portions 19 and 20, and the barrel 1 above the threads 19 is formed with a non-circular portion which provides a wrench hold 21, while a flange or rim 22 is formed upon the outlet spout 2 interior of its threads 20.
From the above description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, the simplicity of the device as well as the advantages thereof will, it is thought, be perfectly apparent to those skilled in the art to which such invention appertains without further detailed description.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim is:
In a device of the kind described, in combination, a faucet barrel having an inlet and an outlet spout, a nipple on said barrel arranged in line with the inlet, a cap threaded tightly upon said nipple, a threaded hollow operating stem screwed into said cap, a handle on said operating stem, an elongated valve stem consisting of a threaded portion working in the hollow stem and a rectan gular portion adapted to slide, an integral transverse guide formed Within said barrel and having a rectangular opening through which said rectangular portion projects for slid-able movement, the threads on said threaded portion of the valve stem and the threads formed externally on said hollow stem being in the relation of left and right handed threads, said barrel having a valve seat and a valve carried by said rectangular portion adapted to engage and become disengaged from-said seat as said rectangular portion slides, said rectangular portion having a limiting shoulder whereby not to pass said guide.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
