CONTAINER-PIERCING AND TANK-FILLING- MACHINE.

Specification of Letters Patent Patented Apr. 2o, ieeo.

Application filed September 12, 1919. Serial No. 323,444.

full, clear, and exact description of the same.

This invention relates to a device for piercing benzin tins and the like and emptying the contents of such tins into the tanks of motor cars and the like.

According hereto the invention comprises a filling tube, one end of which is inserted into the tank that is to be filled, while the other end projects into a funnel, which other end is provided with a piercing point and with holes by means of which the benzin flows through the filling tube into the tank, or alternately the funnel is rovided with a separate piercing device. cans are pro-. vided for retaining-the filling tube in position in the neck of the tank and such means include projections or clips which may be adjusted to different positions on the tube. The funnel is provided with an extension for supporting the benzin tin while the tank is-being filled, the tin being pushed against the piercing point, either by means of a lever or otherwise, and the lever may be provided with a point whereby a vent hole may be conveniently made. A suitable strainer is also provided in the apparatus. f

The invention will be illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure 1, is a sectional view showlng one 4 form of the device.

Fig. 14, is a View of a suitable form of straining device.

Referring first to Figs. 1, 2 and S of th drawings, the device consists of a metal filling tube 1, let into a funnel 2 which is provided on one side with an extension 3 which is adaptedto hold a benzin tin 4.

One end of the filling tube 1 is provided with a shoulder 5 which may be adjusted to various positions on the tube 1, the said shoulder 5 being adapted to hook underneath the neck 6 of the tank 7. A clip,

fastened by a bolt and nut, as shown in the drawings, forms a convenient construction for such shoulder 5 whereby its position may be altered when desired. A similar adjustable clip 8 is also mounted on the tube nearer the funnel 2, and to such clip 8, a foot 9 may be attached or pivoted, said foot 9 being adapted to rest upon the neck 6 of the tank. The end 10 of the filling tube 1 is cut, at two or more portions, to an apex, as indicated at 11 in Fig. 1, the ends thus formed being brought together to form a piercing point at 11, but leaving openings at 12, as shown in Fig. 2, through which openings the liquid will flow.

The portion of the'tube 1 which is within the funnel is preferably raised slightly aboveit as by the pins 13, and distancepieces 14 as indicated in Fig. 1.

An opening 15 in the tube 1 near the apex of the funnel 2, enables any overflow to drain into the tank.

1 A lever 16 is suitably mounted at the end of theextension piece 3, as for example, by the chain 17 and hook 18 from which it may be made detachable. The curved end 19 of the said lever may be used to force the tin 4 against the piercing point 11, the lever 16 being operated in the direction indicated by the arrow.

In the form of the invention shown in Figs. 8 and 10, the portion of the filling tube 20 which enters the tank 21 may be made perfectly straight, a suitable crosspiece 22 being mountedupon the filling tube 20 in order to retain it in position when the tank 21 is being filled. The said crosspiece 22 may be simply held by a bolt, screw or rivet 23 on the tube whereby the ,said cross-piece 22may be made to turn and thereby be folded or collapsed so as to run in line with the tube 20, or the cross-piece may be fastened in any other suitable way.

Furthermore a-swivel is provided at 24 whereby the filling tube and the funnel may be folded or collapsed similarly to the said cross-piece 22, and the whole device may thus be rendered compact, a suitable washer or the like 25 being inserted to insure a tight joint. In this construction the end 26 of the tube 20 maybe rested underneath the neck 27 of the tank 21, and the cross-piece 22 will rest upon the top of the neck.

Any suitable straining device may be inserted in the filling tube as indicated at 28 in Fig. 7 A suitable form of strainer is shown in Fig. 14, which consists of a-piece of tube 29, in which ismounted a conical piece of gauze 30 which may be supported in the tube 29 by solder at 31, or in any other suitable way.

In Fig. 4, is shown a modified form of piercing device in which the end of the filling tube 1 is formed to a piercing point 32 and in this form the flow of liquid is greatly facilitated.

In Figs. 5 and 6 is shown a piercing device separate from the filling tube. The device which is shown in. perspective in Fig. 6 consists essentially in an angular piece of metal 33 formed with a piercing point 34. Such angular piece of metal is mounted in the funnel 2 in any suitable way, such as by rivets 35, as indicated in the drawings. Preferably it is raised above the bottom of the funnel 2, distance pieces 36 being provided for the purpose. I

In Fig. 9 is indicated a modification of Fig. 8, in which modification the portion 37 of the filling tube nearest the funnel is tapered as shown and provided with projections 38 which take into a slot formed in thecorresponding tapered portion 39*. This joint is used instead of the joint 24 in Fig. 8, the separate parts being readily disconnected when desired. The projections 38 pre vent any tendency to turning.

In Figs. 8 and 10, the cross-piece 22 being made collapsible, is straight, but in Figs. 11 and 12, such cross-piece is shown modified in shape whereby the ends 39 may rest fiat on the neck of the tank.

In Fig. 13 is shown a modification of the chain mounting of the lever 16, a link 40 of additional length being provided to give the curved portion 19 a good clearance when the tin is being levered against the piercing point 11.

In operation, the device is inserted into the neck of the tank, as indicated in Figs. 7 and 8, and the benzin tin 4 which is to be emptied is placedupon the extension 3 as indicated in Fig. 7. In the illustration shown it is to be noted that the tin is placed in the extension diagonally, but this construction is not absolutely essential, although it is preferable to facilitate the draining of the tin.

The lever 16 having been placed in the position shown in Fig. 7, in which the curved end 19 of the said lever is placed upon the heel of the tank, by pulling the lever in the direction indicated by the arrows the tin 4 is forced against the piercing point 11 until the lid of the tin bears against the edge 41 of the funnel. Clearances 42 may be provided which will enable this to be done, or the edge 41 may be simply a straight piece, as indicated in Fig. 8, which bears against the edge of the tin. The tin having been forced against the piercing point 11 of the filling tube, the piercing point 43 of the lever 16 may be used to pierce a vent hole in any desired part of the tin, and the chain 17 may be detached from the hook 18, where necessary, for this purpose. By a correct adjustment of the lever 16 and chain 17 it is possible to efiect the piercing of the vent in practically one contmuous movement, as indicated by the dotted lines in Fig. 7, but a. se arate vent piercer may be used if desired.
