UNITED STATES MAJOR E. GATES, OF TERRA GOTTA, ILLINOIS.

FLUID-CONTROLLING DEVICE.

Application filed September 19, 1919.

To all lwhom it may concern.'

Be it known that I, MAJOR E. GATES, a citizen of the United States, residing at Terra Cotta, in the county of McHenry and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Fluid-Controlling Devices, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates more particularly to devices for effecting the flow, in a desired manner, of fluids, it having been devised for use more particularly, but not to the exclusion of other uses, in the manufacture of so-called granites, or in otherv words, bodies formed of terra cotta to which a ceramic mixture in fluid condition is applied to produce a speckled effect on the terra cotta.' In the manufacture of such material the best effects are obtained by applying to the terra cotta foundation or body, the material to produce the speckled effect, by a pulsating discharge of such material against the terra cotta, and this is accomplished by the use of my invention.

One of my objects is to produce the pulsating action referred to, under the control of the operator, and to provide for this action by a novel, simple and economical construction of device. Another object is to provide for such action where the fluid material to be controlled is supplied to the controlling device under pressure, or must be drawn to the controlling device. Another phase of the invention relates to the pumping of fluids, and in this connection the purpose is to rovide a novel, simple, economical and positively operating device for this purpose.

Referring to the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of an apparatus for controlling the flow of fluid, in accordance with the preferred embodiment of my inventioiuithe huid-conducting pipe being broken away. Figure 2 is a plan view of the structure shown in Figure 1. Figure 3 is a section taken at the line 3--3 on Figure 2 and viewed in the direction of the arrows; and Figure 4, a section taken at the line 4-4 -on Figure 2 and viewed in the direction of the arrows.

In accordance with the preferred illustrated embodiment of my invention the device is adapted to either control the flow of fluid through a pipe where the fluid is supplied thereto under pressure, as by being located in a tank above the device shown in the drawings, or forced under pressure to Serial No. 325,041.

the said device, or so conditioned as to require the device to suck vthe fluid intov it, and operate as a pump.` i In the construction illustrated `the base o the device is represented at 5 from which rise, at opposite sides thereof, plates 6 in which a shaft 7 is journalled to extend transversely of the base 5. rIhe pipe through pivot-pin 15 mounted in upwardly-extending ears 16 carried by the basev 5, whereby the devices 9, 10 and 11 may move toward and away from the pipe 8.

In the particular construction shown the devices 9, 10 and 11 cooperate with means for operating themy in succession for the purpose hereinafter stated, these means comprising a disk 17 secured to theshaft 7 which has a crank 18 for operating it, the periphery of the disk 17 being formed with a series of cam surfaces 19 abruptly terminating at the points marked 20. The high points of the cams 19 which are rotated into engagement with the upper ends of the presser-devices 9, 10 and 11, upon .rotating the crank 18, operate to force the presserdevices into such close engagement with the pipe 8 beneath them as to vclose the pipe at this point,'and the low parts of these cams are so formed as to permit the pipe 8 below these presser-devices, when the latter are opposite the low portions of the cams, to expand to normal condition. The arrangement of these cams relative to the presserdevices 9, 10 and 11 is such, as shown, that at all times one of the presser-devices closes the pipe 8, and these presser-devices are op'- -erated 'in succession from the left tothe right inFigure 3. Assuming thev partstof. be in the position illustrated in Figure 3, it

will be noted that the high part of the cam 19 engaging the presser-device 10 is 'about ready to disengage from this' presser-device, the pipe 8 below this presser-device being closed in, the position Shown. As the shaft means for intermittently actuating said presser device.

6. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which the fluid is to pass, a series of relatively movable presser de-vices, the said series extending lengthwise of said pipe and being movable into and out of engagement With the side of said pipe, and means for operati ing said presser devices in succession, for

the purpose set forth.

7. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which the liuid is to pass, a series of relatively movable presser devices in the form of pivoted levers, said series of levers extending lengthwise or" said pipe and being movable into and out of engagement With the side of said pipe, and means for operating said presser devices in succession, for the purpose set forth.

8. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which t-he fluid is to pass, a series of presser devices in the form or" levers pivoted on the device and movable at their presser portions against the pipe in a plane substantially at a right angle to the axis of the pipe, and means pivotally supported non-coincidental Wit-h the pivots of' said leve-rs for intermittently forcing said levers in succession against said pipe.

9. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which the fluid is to pass, a. series of presser devices in the form of levers pivoted on the device and movable at their presser portions against the pipe in plane substantially at a right angle to the axis of the pipe, said levers extending in a plane substantially parallel with said pipe', and means pivotally supported non-coincidental with the pivots of said levers for intermittently forcing said levers in succession kagainst said i e. p IO. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which the fluid is to pass, a series of presser devices mo-vable in a plane substantially at a right angle to the axis of the pipe, and a rotary cam device operating in one direction and operating to intermittently force said presser devices, in succession, against said pipe against the resistance of the latter.-

1l. In a device of the character described, the combination of a fiexible pipe through which the fluid is to pass, a series of presser devices each formed of a pivot member movable in a plane substantially at a right angle to the axis of the pipe, and a rotary cam device operating in one direction and operating to intermittently force said presser devices in succession against said pipe against the resistance of the latter.

12. In a device of the character described, the combination of a flexible pipe through which the fluid is to pass, a series of presser devices in the form of levers pivoted on the device and movable at their presser portions against the pipe in a plane substantially at a right angle to the axis of the pipe, and a rotary cam device operating in one direction and operating to intermittently force said presser devices, in succession, against said pipe against the resistance of the latter.

13. In apparatus of the character set forth, the combination of a source of fluid, under pressure, to be controlled, a flexible pipe in communication with said source of fluid, a presser device operating against the side of said pipe for intermittently contracting said ipe to closed condition to effect a pulsating discharge therefrom, and mechanism for intermittently actuating said presser device.
