Application filed October 5, 1922. Serial No. 592,646.

The body has a cylindrical wall 10,

Figure 2 is a similar view showing the After the material to be preserved or profinal part of the method for practicing my tected has been placed in the receptacle of invention. Figure 3 is a cross section taken th conta er and the closurehas been apno plied thereto as above described, the air is withdrawn from the interior of the container whereby the oxygen present in the sameis reduced to a minimum and the contents of the container are protected against unduly rapid oxidation which otherwise oc ours and impairs the usefulness of the same to a marked degree, particularly in the case of tablets which are used for-medicine.

Withdrawal ofthe air for this purpose is effected by pushing a hollow needle 17 inwardly through the head and plug of the closure so that the inner open end of the same communicates with the storage space within the container, as shown in Fig. 1, and

connecting the-outer end of this needle with a suitable suction device whereby the air is drawn outwardly from the container through said needle and a vacuum or rarification of air in the container is produced, thereby eliminating a large percentage of oxy en which would attack the medical tablets in the container and produce an undesirable reaction thereon. In practice it has been found satisfactory to use a hypodermic needle and a vacuum pum attached to the rear end of the same, as t e means for extracting the air from the vial or container.

Upon withdrawing the needle from the closure, the parts of the latter immediately around the puncture 18 formed by the needle will come tightly together automatically and seal the puncture so as to prevent the entrance of air therethrough into the container. This automatic sealing of this puncture progresses in the same measure as the needle is withdrawn, this being illustrated in Fig. 2 in which the needle has been withdrawn so that its point is only located in the outer part of the puncture while the inner partof the closure has already contracted and sealed the respective part of the puncture within the same.

When the needle has been wholly withdrawn from the closure the puncture therein is'closed throughout its entire length, as shown in Fig. 4, thereby effectively sealing the closure and preventing the entrance of air into the'container so that the contents of the same are maintained in vacuo.

Upon withdrawing the air from the container by means of the needle, the inward pressure of the atmosphere against the elastic closure is increased so that the closure is pressed more tightly around the needle and guards more effectively against the entrance of air, and when the needle has been withdrawn from the closure this increased externalpressure against the closure causes the parts of the latter around its puncture to be pressed together with increased pressure proportionate to the vacuum produced in the container and the cork or plug of the closure to be sucked into the bottle with increased pressure, so that if there is the least leakage as the rubber stopper resumes its normal position the tendency to close the leak opening is all the stronger, and seals the container so much ti hter, thereby effectively preventing brea ring of the vacuum in the container and ensurin its contents against deleterious action 0 the atmosphere.

It is therefore possible by the use of my invention to pack medical tablets or other materials liable to unfavorable influences in the presence of air to be effectively protected or preserved against contamination, weakening or deterioration, so that when the are to be used, they will be fresh and m full strength and operate most efiiciently for the purposes for which they were intended.

I claim as my invention:

The hereindescribed method of preserving articles susceptible of deterioration when exposed to air which consists in placing such articles in a receptacle having a rigid wall and an inlet, then mounting a closure of elastic material on said receptacle so that the same extends across and closes the inlet thereof, then passing a hollow needle inwardly through said closure so that the needle communicates with the interior of said receptacle, then applying an exhausting effeet on the outer end of the needle so as to withdraw the air from said needle through said needle, and then withdrawing the needle from said closure and permitting those parts of the closure which have been separated by the needle during the perfecting operation to again come together due to the resilience of the closure and operate to seal the puncture.

RALPH B, WAITE.
