H. C. GESSLER SUGAR DISPENSER Filed Feb. 11, 1952 l/ll Patented den. 3, 1933 PATENT OFFICE HARRY C. GESSLER, 0F BROOKLYN, NEW YORK SUGAR DISPENSER Application filed February 11, 1932.

This invention relates to dispensing devices such as sugar spills.

One object of this invention is to provlde a device of the character described having a screen in improved association with a container and a closure such as a conical cover, whereby a large screening area is afforded and the screened material guided to a flow controlling orifice of the cover.

Another object of the invention is the pro vision of improved means for interengaging a container cover and a screen, and also to provide an improved screen for handling caked or even wet granulated or pulverulent materials.

Another object is to furnish a device in cluding a container having an improved base structure to avoid excessive impact to the container, or to protect the surface on which the device is placed, or both; and still another object is to afford a device such as a sugar spill having a container provided with a cover and a screen so detach'ably mounted therein as to be removable, as for cleaning, by a strong impact on the cover, in improved association with a resilient base for the container to avoid such impact in normal use of the device.

A further object of the invention is to provide a device of the nature set forth having relatively few and simple parts, and. which is inexpensive to manufacture, easy to take apart and reassemble, durable, reliable, and

efficient to a high degree in use.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent as the specification proceeds.

With the aforesaid objects in view, the invention consists in the novel combinations and arrangements of parts hereinafter described in their preferred embodiments, pointed out in the subjoined claims, and illustrated on the annexed drawing, wherein like parts are designated by the same reference characters throughout the several views.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a vertical cross sectional view on the line 11 of Fig. 2, showing the device embodying the invention.

Serial No. 592,296.

Fig. 2 is a bottom view thereof.

Fig. 3 is a plan view showing a modified screening means.

The advantages of the invention as here outlined are best realized when all of its features and instrumentalities are combined in one and the same structure, but, useful devices may be produced embodying less than the whole.

It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains, that the same may be incorporated in several different constructions. The accompanying drawing, therefore, is submitted merely as showing the preferred exemplification of the invention. 65

Referring in detail to the drawing, denotes a dispensing device such as a sugar spill having a container 11 that may be of any suitable shape or construction and made of any desired material, for instance, glass. This container may have a relatively heavy bottom portion 12, and a laterally projecting integral head 13. At its upper end, the contai er may have a fastening such as a threaded portion, and a bead 15 adjacent thereto.

To afford'a convenient and rapid movement of a finely divided" material into or out of the container 11, the latter may have a large outlet 16. Normally closing said outlet is a device such as a cover 17, which may be of conical. form and provided with a central outlet 18. The lower or base portion of this cover may have an annular shoulder 19 for resting on the rim of the container 11, and a threaded portion 20 depending therefrom for removable engagement with the threaded portion 14. A bead 21 on the end of the cover may abut the bead 15, supplementing the engagement at 19 to afford a rigid, tight conq nection.

Disposed at some convenient point within the device 10 at or preferably within the base portion of the cover is a screening means 22. T he same is removably mounted to facilitate cleaning of the device. For example, the screening means may be detachably connected to a base portion of the cover, this having the advantage that the cover and screening means are removable as a unit for filling the container with material, and also that the area of the screen may be made substantially equal to the area of the container outlet 16 so as to obtain the full benefit thereof.

One manner for detachably mounting the screening means in the cover may include the provision of resilient means adapted to interen'gage by a spring or snap action, and to be removable either manually or preferably by causing a strong impact on the cover when the same is detached from the container. For instance, the cover may have an annular portion 23 just above the shoulder 19, said annular portion being so formed as to have a continuous internal groove of a slight depth, and the conical wall 24 of the cover may merge into and form a wall of the recess at an acute angle, if desired.

, While the screening means can be variously constructed as a foraminous body having preferably large perforations, I prefer to employ a wire screen 25 of any conventional construction. I may provide this screen with a marginal rim 26 that may serve as a reenforcement therefor, or to eliminate projecting ends of the Wire of the screen, or to facilitate the detachable mounting of the screen. The rim may, for. example, consist of thin sheet materialand be folded around the edges of the screen as by pressing, stamping, or the like. If desired, the inner edges 27 of the rim may be slightly raised away from the screen to afford a finger nail hold for removing the screening means from the cover. In any case, the rim may be uniform on both sides so that the screening device may be attached in the cover from either side thereof, and by making the rim narrow, it can possess a degree of resilience to facilitate attachment and detachment thereof in the recess of the cover.

It will be understood that the nature of the attachment of the rim 26 in the recessed portion 23 is such that, when the cover is removed from the container, the screening device can be knocked out by causing an impact on the cover, as by bringing the cover down hard on a table or the like with the bead 21 striking fiat on the table. For this purpose, the recess at 23 is comparatively slight and may be of a depth of one or two to five thousandths of an inch, according to materials and constructions used, but suflicient to normally adequately retain the screening device in the cover in normal use thereof.

It will be perceived that by this arrangement, the rim 26 may form a continuous seal with the adjacent wall of the cover and may seat upon a portion of the conical .wall thereof.

The cover and related parts thereof may I be made of any suitable materials, such as metal or composition materials, the former being particularly adapted for stamping or spinnlng operations.

Since the outlet 18 is centrally related with respect to the screen, it is particularly adapt ed to uniformly receive materials passing therethrough, and because said outlet is spaced from the screen, the space 28 between the screen and outlet constitutes a reservoir for causing a uniform and rapid feed of the material to said outlet. The side Wall 24 of the cover forms substantially an acute angle .it is considered that the device 10 is tilted through an angle of 90 degrees or more for causing a discharge of material. In fact, the action of the screen in breaking the fall of material when the device 10 is tilted is of particular advantage as a flow regulating device. I

While the screen can be made of very thin Wires or plates, it preferably consists of wire of say one sixty fourth to one thirty second of an inch or more in thickness, and the wires may be suitably soldered together at the points where they cross each other, thus affording the retarding action mentioned. The screen may vary between one eighth to one quarter inch in mesh, but it may also be of less or greater mesh.

Associated with the screening means is a base 29 for the container, so arranged as to avoid excessive impact or jar thereon which might cause release of the screening means from its cover. More specifically, the base is of yielding or resilient nature, so that in the ordinary use of the device,and every time that the same is placed upon a table, sometimes with excessive force, the impacts are absorbed. Une form of construction is to provide a surfacing or housing element such as a ring 30 which may include a bottom flange 31 and a side flange 32 that can be secured or spun.

over the bead 13. This ring may have a plurality of downward projecting rests or tits 33 formed therein. By making the ring of a,

sheet material such as metal, the ring can be easily worked and formed as a stamping, the construction of the rests 33 resulting in upward opening recesses. If the ring consists of a soft or resilient material, the members 33 afford an even or three point cushioning support and one which will not mar or scratch a table. The cushioning action may be enhanced by the interposition of a resilient element between the ring and the bottom of the container. Preferably rubber is used, and the action thereof concentrated at the rests 33. be utilized to save material, and these may be disposed at the rests 33. The elements 34 Circular rubber elements 34 may spective recesses formed by the downward pressed portions. 1 11. A sugar spillincluding a container, a base secured to the container at the bottom 5 thereof, said base consisting of a thin sheet material and having downwardly p supporting portions, said supportin portions formin recesses on the upper side 0 the base, and resilient elements connected to the base 10 in said recesses and bearing upward on the bottom of the container.

12. A sugar s ill including a glass container, a cover t erefor having an outlet, a screen resiliently detachably secured in said cover so as to be removable therefrom by a strong impact on the sugar spill, a metal ring secured around a bottom edge of the container and having a flange spaced below the bottom thereof, and resilient means in said space act- 20 ing between said flange and the container bot- In testimony whereof I afii'x my signature.
