They are designed to be assembled on the container in the order named and disassembled in the reverse order.
The bung screw, best shown in Fig. 4, has at its lower end two terraced threaded portions designated by 13 and 1st. The two different sizes of screw and thread permits the same screw to be inserted in either the bung on the end or on the side of a metal drum or barrel. The number of these threaded terraces may be increased, if desired, to enable the screw to be inserted in bungs of various sizes.
When the assembly is adapted for use with containers having very small bungs it has been found convenient to provide a spider 61, Fig. 2, in order to stably support the assembly. The spider is equipped with an internal thread and screws over the larger threaded portion 13. A series of downwardly extending fingers 62 bear against the surface of the con tainer to stabilize the assembly.
A nut portion 15 of the bung provides space for the application of a wrench in tightening the screw. Above the nut portion is a crosswise slot 16 extending nearly halfway across the bung screw. A vertical slot'17 extends from the crosswise cut to the top end of the screw; A bolt 18 passes through proiections 19 on the bung screw at either side of the slot 17 and is provided at one end with a lever or handle 20. It will be observed that the inside diameter of the bung screw is somewhat larger than the outside diameter of the suction drop pipe. This permits the end of the catch basin support to rest between the two. When the bolt 18 is loosenedthe end of the catch basin support, designated generally by 21, may be partially inserted in the bung screw, taking the position shown partially in section in Fig.4. The lower part or sleeve of the catch bas n end 22 slips down into the bung screw and fits closely so that by a small adjustment of the handle 20 the top of the bung screw may be tightened. around it making a vapor proof connection. The distance which the catch basin support may pass into the bung screw is limited by. the annular flange 23. The catch basin support arm extends outward just above the bung screw in order that it have a maximum stability. Above the arm is a split ring portion 24 arranged in a manner similar to that at the bung having a tightening bolt 25 to draw the top of the catch basin support end closely around the suction drop pipe and form a vapor proof connection. 'This also serves to hold the suction drop pipe at whatever level it may be placed for use,supporting the pumping and dispensing equipment. A dram passage 26 is provided in the catch basin support and extends from the catch basin into the container through the bung screw by way of a small slotted passageway 27 on the inside of the catch basin support sleeve.
The catch basin consists of two parts, namely, a bottom half 28 attached to the support by means of a bolt 38 and having a projecting portion 29 resting within the flanged end 30 of the support, and a top half31 attached to the lower half through the hinge flanges 32 and 33 and the pin 3 1. A flanged opening 35 in the center of the upper half is closed by a. spring closure 36, except when held open by the nozzle of the dispensing hose presently to be described which it is designed to hold in order that any liquid dripping therefrom may be returned to the container. The upper half of the catch basin is adapted to be raised up on thepin 31 to an open position as shown in dotted lines, Fig. 4, to permit cans to be rested upon the ribs 37 when dispensing without the hose 12. When the basin is in the closed position the upper half held to the lower half through the force of gravity alone. The two come in contact at their peripheral rims 39 and 40 which are machined on their contact faces to smoothness whereby a normally vapor proof joint is formed. However, should pressure develop in the container the upper half of the basin will beraised by such excess pressure to permit the escape of vapors. Resting in the opening at the bottom of the lower half of the catch basin is a flame bafllecoinprising two layers of perforated sheet metal held in place by the bolt 38, the perforations in the lower disc being smaller than those in the upper disc. Because of the presence of these discs an exterior fire will not be able to work backward along the drain passage into the container and only such gases as pass through the bafile will burn. In this manner explosions due to vapor mixtures above the liquid in the container will be prevented. The discs also serve as a filter for liquid returning to the container.
The pumping equipment is adapted to be handled as a unit. The suction droppipe is inserted in the sleeve of the catch basin support and lowered to an appropriate depth in the container. Throughthe bolt 25 and the split collar 24 the suction drop pipe is capable of being held at any position in the catch basin support in order that the distance between the check valve 11 and the catch basin may be varied to fit the different sizes of cans and containers to be filled. In order that at all positions the suction drop pipe may reach to the bottom of the container and be capable of removing all of the liquid a collapsible section 39 is added. This is a smaller pipe made to fit closely inside the larger pipe 8 and having a packing gland 10 of the ordinary type to prevent air from being drawn in. However, where the pipe'i-BE) would be of such a small internal diameter as to make operation slow a flexible metal hose 41 may be attached arises-ass V 1 1 directly to thewend ofthe' larger-suotidn drop pipe.

At- I tention isjdirected'to the' ease and rapidity. -with WhlCll'AElIQSQ VHIlOUST a alterations and Operation of the pump will be seen to be particularly easy, safe, and economical. When the catch basin cover is raised the assembly is ready to dispense into cans and small containers. As the pump is operated the liquid is drawn up the suction drop pipe and forced over to the check ball at? where the pressure of the liquid lifts the ball against the pressure of its spring and the liquid flows into the chamber 4:4, down the nozzle 51, and into the can to be filled. hen the can is practically filled the operator stops the pump and immediately the ball i7 is forced down closing the passage and stopping the flow of liquid. The small amount of liquid remaining in the chamber and nozzle rapidly drains out because of the slottedconstruction. The few drops which may come after the can is removed are permitted to fall into the catch basin from which they flow back into the container by way of the drain passage. Should an extraneous tire occur during this rocess, the contents of the container are protected by the flame baffle across the drain passa e which is the only opening to the contalner. When the flexible hose is in use the flow of liquid is stopped in like manner. While the assembly is not being operated the vapors are held completely within the circuit since'both ends are closed from contact with the atmosphere. But while thus closed, any pressure which may develop in the container is automatically relieved through the catch basin cover which rests upon the basin.
Should fire cause the barrel to become heated the escaping vapors will burn upon the bafiie rather than be carried back into the barrel into what may be an explosive mixture.
While I have described a particular embodiment of my invention in use in a specific instance for purposes of illustration, I do not wish to be so limited. The invention contemplates broadly an assembly such as defined in some of the claims. It should be understood that various changes might be made in the construction and arrangement without departing from the spirit and scope of the I invention as expressed in the appended claims.
