ROBERT W. LANTON, OF IRONTON, OHIO.
METALLIC KEG.
rApplication led'April 14, 1921. Serial No. 461,177.
To all whom fit may concern:
Be it known that I, ROBERT WEAKLY BLAN'roN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Ironton in the county of Lawrence and lState of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Metallic Kegs, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to kegs, barrels and similar receptacles for the transportation of solids such as nails, bolts and similar heavy articles, and the purpose of my inventionis the provision of a keg constructed wholly of sheet metal and in such an extremely simple manner as to successfully compete with kegs constructed of wood.
It is also a purpose of m invention to provide a metallic keg in which the body is comprised of sections so interlocked as to prevent relative movement of one section with respect to the other and to permit of the interchanging of the sections for the purpose of substituting a new section for a damaged one. Furthermore, my invention provides a kegin which the head sections cooperate with the interlocking means for the body sections in reinforcing the body against collapsing, the interlocking means also serving t-o retain the head sections in reinforcing relation with respect to body sections, and at the same time permitting of the removal of the head sections to gain access to the interior of the keg.
. I will describe one form of keg embodying my invention and will then point out the novel features thereof in claims.
In the accompanying drawings:-
Figure 1 is a View showing in perspective with portions thereof broken away, one form of keg embodying my invention.
Figure 2 is a transverse sectional view taken on the line 2-2 of Figure 1 and looking in the direction of the arrows.
Figure 3 is a'fragmentary detail perspective view showing the inner side of any two adjacent body sections with such sections disengaged from each other and with one of the locking keys in position with respect to one of the sections and in disengaged position with respectl to the bottom head section.
Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view ta `ken on the line 4-4 of Figure 1.
Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary sectional view of one of the joints between. any two of the body section v Similar reference characters refer to similar parts 1n each of the several views.
Referring specifically to the drawings and.
particularly to Figure 1, my invention in lts present embodlment comprises a body formed of a plurality of sections S of identical construction, Wlth each section formed of a rectangular sheet of metal curved transversely in the form of an arc and also longitudinally if it is desired that the body of the kesg be formed with a bilge. Each section is preferably, although not necessarlly, bent inwardly to provide reinforcing ribs 15 and portions thereof along the vertica l edges as indicated at 16. As shown in F igure 3, each section is formed adjacent one vertical edge with rectangular openings or sockets 17 which extend longitudinally of the sections and disposed at regular spaced intervals throughout its length. Adjacent the other vertical ledge of each Section V- shaped heads 18 are formed at intervals throughout the length of the sections which correspond to the sockets 17, and between these heads slots 19 are provided for the purpose of receiving a locking key R. As shown in Figures 3 and 4, each locking key is formed from a single length of sheet metal bent in the form of a triangular with the ends thereof cut to provide shoulders 20 and locking tongues 21.
The keg also includes an upper head section H and a lower head section H', each of which is constructed in the same manner and of sheet metal to provide a disc portion 22 and an annular U-shaped flange 23 on the periphery of the disc 22. The fiange 23 of the upper head section H is arranged in reverse relation with respect to the flange 23 of the lower head section H', it being obvious that these flanges are so arranged so as to accommodate the end edges of the keg body. Adjacent the .flange 23 of each head H or H', slots 24 are formed at regular intervals which correspond to the locking keys R provided in the body, these slots being designed for the purpose of receiving locking tongues 21.
In the assembling of the several sections S to form the body of the keg, any two adjacent sections are arranged 1n the manner shown in Figure 3, with the sockets 17 receiving the heads 18 as indicated by the arrows, so that the heads extend inwardly of the body in the manner shown in igure 2 and between the confronting ends of R is now extended longitudinally through the several heads 18 and in such manner that the heads are securely locked against dis-` placement from the sockets. The other sections comprised in the body are locked in a similar manner, and itis to be particularly noted that because of the triangular contour of the heads 18 and the locking keys R that any two adjacent sections are securely locked against relative lateral movement as well as longitudinal movement. Thus when the several sections are secured in body formation, an integral keg body is produced.
In the application of the bottom and top head sections H and H', the discs 22 are disposed wholly within the keg body, with the flanges 23 receiving the edges of the body sections, and the two thus strongly reinforcing the body against collapsing and maintaining the several sections in extended position. The head sections are so adjusted upon the body that the slots 24 will receive the locking tongues 21 whereupon the latter are bent inwardly in the manner shown in Figure 1 thus securely locking the head sections within the body. ln this position of the head sections it is to be'pa-rticularly noted that the discs 22 engage the shoulders 20 of the locking keys, and when thelock- L,ing tongues are bent to engage the discs, it
will be clear that the inward collapsing of the head sections is positively prevented. This latter feature is important in the use of kegs of this character where the kegs are adapted to be placed one upon the other during shipment or storage and it is necessary that the head sections be securely retained against inward or outward bending.
In the event of one of the body sections becoming unduly distorted as a result of rough usage, it will be manifest that the keg does not have to be discarded but that the damaged section or sections can be readily removed and new ones substituted. This is accomplished by straightening the locking tongues so as to permit of the removal of the head sections, and when the latter have been removed the locking keys can be Withdrawn from the heads 18 so as to permit detaching of the body sections.
Although I have herein shown and described only one form. of keg embodying my invention, it is to be understood that various changes and modiications may be made herein without departing from the spirit of the invention or the spirit and scope of the appended claims. f
What I claim is:
1. ln a metal barrel, a side section having formed adjacent each longitudinal edge a naaaaao plurality of spaced recesses, said recesses extending the entire length of the section and a portion existing between the recesses arranged along one edge being bent upon itself for the purpose described.
2. A metallic keg comprising a body formed of a plurality of sections, tl-shaped heads formed on the sections, sockets formed in the sections for receiving said heads, locking keys of triangular cross section and hollow slidably tted in said heads.
3. A metallic keg comprising a body formed of a plurality of overlapping sections, head and socket connections between the sections, locking keys engaging the heads for locking the latter within the sockets, shoulders and locking tongues on the opposite ends of the locking keys, and head sections itted within the body and engaging said shoulders, said locking tongues extending through the head sections and adapted to engage and lock the latter in contact with said shoulders.
4. A metallic keg comprising a body formed of a plurality of sections, V-shaped heads formed on the sections, sockets formed in the sections and receiving said heads, locking keys of triangular cross section slidably fitted in said heads, shoulders and locking tongues formed on the opposite ends of the locking keys, and heads sections fitted within the body and engaging said shoulders, said head sections being formed with slots to receive said locking tongues for locking the same in engagement with said shoulders.
5. A metallic keg comprising a body formed of a plurality of overlapping sections, head and socket connections between the sections, locking keys slid'ably engaging the heads of said connections, shoulders and bendable locking tongues formed on the opposite ends of the keys, head sections each comprising a. disc reposing on said shoulders and formed with slots to receive said tongues, and an annular flange formed on the periphery of the disc and of U-shaped cross section to receive the ends of said body section.
6. lA` metallic keg comprising a body formed of a plurality of sections having bent portions to provide reinforcing ribs, V-shaped headsv formed at intervals in each of the sections, sockets formed at corresponding intervals and adapted to receive said heads, locking keys of triangular cross section extended through said heads for locking the latter within said sockets, the arrangement of said heads with respect to said ribs being such that the latter serveto protect the heads against distortion by the material adapted to be contained in the keg, shoulders and locking tongues formed on the opposite ends of the locking keys, head sections comprising discs engageable with said shoulders formed with slots to receive said lill@ messes@ eciing fonguesfenid annule-r enges ormed of spaced Rectangular shaped recesses, seid om ehe peripheries of seid disc end'em'emged recesses being e'l'anged the entire length of im Treverse reation to pi'ovide grooves ''or he section im eech instance and the portions lo eeeiving the opposie ends of che body. existing between che 'ecesses adjacent onev 7. in e meea barrel, e sie section arcuate edge being bem ibo orm V-shaped protruc'oss secion and having formed edjeeen sions upon the inner sioe of seid section. eech ongiudine edge thereof e. pumity RBERT W., BLANTON.
