BEVERAGE BOTTLE CAP Filed Oct. 24, 195.4

INVENTOR Luke J. Sirauss.

ATTORN EYS Patented June 4, 1935 UNITED STATES PATEN 6 Claims.

This invention relates to liquid dispensing devices and it has particular relation to, the type of dispensing device whichis detachable and applicable to containers which are adapted to be filled with liquid-and sealedunder gaseous pressure.

One object of the invention is to provide an improved device manually applicable and manually operable to break the seal of sealed liquid containers and to provide a controlled dispensing of the liquid contents'of the container.

Another object of the invention is to provide an attachment suitable for use in connection with the dispensing of liquid contents from a container and in which a minimum number of parts are required, including deformable material which is yieldable in one direction to permit a puncturing element to puncture a cap of a sealed container, while it is yieldablein another direction to open a valve, whereby the liquid contents can be dispensed under controlled conditions.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is an elevation of a fluid container and a dispensing device incorporated therewith;

Fig. 2 is a vertical section, on a larger scale, showing in detail the structure of the dispensing device as incorporated upon a fluid container;

Fig. 3 is a vertical section similar to Fig.2, and illustrating another form of device; and

Fig. 4 is a vertical section similar to Fig. 2, and illustrating still another form of device.

In practicing the invention a dispensing attachment I0 is shown mounted upon the upper portion of a fluid container l2, and includes a casing 13 having depending inwardly crimped flange sections I 5. One or more of these sections is provided with an extension 16 to facilitate prying of the casing from the container. Shoulders 11 formed by crimping the flange sections ,are adapted to snap below the lower flange edge I8 01 a container cap 19, that is employed to seal the mouth 20 of the container.

A resilient annular washer 22 is disposed in the casing against its uper end wall 23 which is slightly spaced from the top of the cap IS. The spacing between the cap and end wall 23 is such that the washer is compressed when the flange shoulders 11 are snapped into position upon the lower edges of the cap I9. I

A cup shaped portion 25 is pressed outwardly in the upper wall portion of the casing I 0 and is provided with a central opening 26 through which a metallic sleeve 21 extends slidably and with so much play as to permit tilting or universal move-- ment of the sleeve in the opening. The upper end of the sleeve 21 has an ou T OFFICE,

twardly and downwardly turned annular flange 28 which engages the upper end of a yieldable outer sleeve 30 composed of resilient material, such as compressible rubber. The lower rests upon the upper surface of the cup shaped portion 25 and compression in such the sleeve 30 is thus held under manner that it constantly tends to force the inner sleeve 21 outwardly from the casing. In order mentor the sleeve 21, integrally upon the vides, together with the to prevent outward displacea valve member 32 is formed lower sleeve end and prowasher 33, a fluid tight closure for the casing opening 26. A series of lateral openings 35 are adjacent the junction of valve member 32, and provides of fluid through the sleeve when her is opened. The lower formed in the sleeve 21 the sleeve proper and its for the passage the valve memend of the valve member has a downwardly pointed projection 36 located substantially at the center of the Upon mounting the 0 cap 19. asing 10 upon the container cap IS, the sleeve 21 can be manually eby compressing the re rcing the projection 36 m an opening 31 therein.

is designed for applicacontainers in which the fluid is pressure, the fluid is immediately the casing cap. As soon as the cap nder compression in the free to pass into a chamber 38 casing, but the fluid is prevented from leaking by means of the washers 22 and 33.

By manually holding the container, as indicated in Fig. 1, and tilting the sleeve 30 from its vertical position, the container,

or away from axial alignment with the valve member 32 is unseated, or

partially unseated; whereupon the fluid in the container is free to pass through the openings 35 and through the sleeve 21.

It is of course to be understood that in drawing fluid from the container,

the mouth of the sleeve (1 the user turns it to direct ownwardly. That is, the

container is turned after the manner of pouring fluid therefrom. 'Ihe can be directed into a under the influence of which was stored in the 0 contents of the container drinking glass, or the like,

the gas under pressure ontainer when the latter was fllled; As soon as the sleeve 21 is released from its tilted position with respect to the container, the resilient sleeve member 32 against further discharge of the fluidj- 30 closes the valve I portion on the rubber sleeve 30 5 In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 3, I

the sleeve 21 and casing 13, are substantially the the lower end of the resilient sleeve 30 is formedwith a lower flange 4!! and adjacent groove 42 that receives the casing edge forming the opening 26.

When the sleeves 21 and 30 are tilted in the manner described above, the valve member 32 is unseated from one side of the flange 40 to permit the passage of fluid from the casing through the openings 35 and through the sleeve 21.

In this arrangement it is not necessary that the lower flange of the casing be crimped entirely about its circumference, but spaced sections 43 having shoulders 45 substantially the same as the sections'l5 are provided to operate in substantially the same manner.

In Fig. 4, a portion of the device which corresponds to the casing I3 is composed entirely of rubber, or other suitable resilient material, somewhatin the form of a nipple and is provided with an inner annular shoulder 52 which is resilient and can be stretched over the cap l5 until it is anchored upon the lower edges i8 thereof. A second annular shoulder 53 rests upon the marginal portion of the cap l9 and a cylindrical wall 55 joining these shoulders is slightly stretched and remains under tension while the shoulder 53 provides a seal about the cap.

The upper portion 56 of the resilient device 50, which is shaped like the rubber sleeve 30, is provided with an inner sleeve 51 formed of relatively rigid material and having at its upper end outwardly and downwardly turned flanges 58 engaging the upper end of the sleeve portion 56. A valve member 59 is screw-threaded in fluid-tight relation into the lower end of the sleeve 51 and is provided with a series of lateral openings 60 to serve the same purpose as the openings 35. The valve member is normally pressed into fluid-tight relation against an annular shoulder 62 of the inner wall of the cap 50 and is provided with a lower pointed projection 63 which serves the same purpose as the projection 36 in puncturing the cap 19. In utilizing this construction the sleeve 51 is tilted in the same manner as that described above to unseat the valve member 59v from the shoulder 52, thereby providing free outlet of fluid from the interior of the casing through the sleeve 51.

From the foregoing description it will be apparent that the invention is adapted to be applied to any type of bottle, and although it is particularly adapted to be used in conjunction with a bottle having a sealing cap l9, it is apparent that the cap might be removed and the device used upon an ordinary unsealed bottle.

Although several forms of the invention have been shown and described in detail, it will be apparent to those skilled in the art that the invention is not so limited but that various changes may be madetherein without departing from the spirit of the invention or from the scope ofthe appended claims.
