4 Claims.

This invention relates in general to an improved device for dispensing liquids and more particularly to expeditiously dispensing a unit charge of lubricating oil from a sealed container. The principal object of the invention is to provide the combination of a readily frangible oil container cooperating with a simple, inexpensive, funnel spout adapted to fit and be telescoped over the frangible container and to make tight 1o sealing contact with the container, so that a unit charge of oil may be readily dispensed from the container through the funnel spout and directly into the filling opening of an automobile crank case or other ultimate place of deposit.

15f An important object of the invention is the provision of a novel method of dispensing branded or labeled motor oils in sealed, tamperproof containers in an expeditious and economical manner, which method is designed to sub- 20 stantially prevent substitution and adulteration of the oils and to protect the ultimate consumer against adulterated and inferior quality.

Another important object of the invention is the provision of a combination pouring spout and 25 funnel, shaped'and dimensioned so as to conduct and transfer liquids, such as lubricating oils, from a substantially widely opened container to a. more or less restricted opening in the ultimate place of deposit, such as the filling holes of auto- 30 mobile crank cases, which differ in size and accessibility according to different makes and sizes of cars, and to make such transfer speedily and with a minimum waste of oil and motion and with a minimum soiling of the devices involved.

.35 Still another important object is the provision of such a combination pouring spout and delivery funnel of simple and inexpensive construc-- tion, provided with a sealing gasket and cooperating with a readily frangible container of metal :40 or fibre or partly metal and partly fibre,.for dispensing a unit charge of oil from such containters, the while sealingly embracing said container and without resort to the expensive equipment now in use at filling stations and elsewhere.

45 Numerous other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent as it is better understood from the following description, which, taken in connection with the accompanying drawing, discloses a preferred embodiment there- Referring to the drawing:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a suitable oil container with scored top end and illustrates the removal of the scored end;

55 Fig. 2 is a pe ctive view of the container and funnel spout, with parts broken away, in assembled relationship; and

Fig. 3 is a partly sectional, partly elevational view, showing the assembled container and funnel spout in dispensing positio 5 The preferred embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawing, comprises generally a sheet metal container II and a funnel shaped spout l2, also made of sheet metal and of somewhat heavier gauge than the metal of the container.

Preferably, the container l I is of the tall and comparatively small diameter kind, and of dimensions to hold, for example, a quart of lubricating oil. It comprises a cylindrical body l3, having a bottom end secured to it by means of a double seam It, or in any suitable liquid tight manner. A top end is secured to the opposite end of the body it by a like seam I5 which forms an outward projection at the top of the container, and has a counter sunk flat panel it provided with an annular score line H located just within the upwardly projecting seam lb. The contain er is opened by breaking through the score line ll with a sharp instrument such as a pocket knife or screw driver l 3.

The funnel spout l2, preferably .made from seamless brass or copper tubing, and gradually reduced by spinning from its largest diameter to its smallest diameter, is substantially frusto-conical or bottle shaped and comprises a body ill of comparatively large diameter, terminating at its lower end into a recessed container engaging collar 2 l integrally connected with the body l9 by an intermediate bend or outer groove 22, which provides a second, inner groove or annular recess 23. The body l9 gradually tapers towards its upper end into a comparatively small diameter tubular neck 24, which, at its upper extremity, defines a restricted circular pouring opening 25. 4%

The cylindrical collar 2i is of larger internal diameter than the outer diameter of the cylindrical container body I 3, and in order to provide for a liquid tight engagement between the collar and the container body, the collar is provided with an annular gasket 26 of a thickness equal to or slightly in excess of the difference in these d1- ameters.

The annular gasket 26 is preferably of rubber or other suitable material and frusto-pyramidal in cross section, the wide base of the gasket engaging the metal of the collar 2!, and the narrower inner face of the gasket being adapted to make liquid tight sealing engagement with the cylindrical wall of the body l3. The gasket 26 is secured in place within the collar 2| by having the upper corner of the gasket base squeezed or crimped into the groove 23, and by having the bottom marginal edge of the collar turned inward and upward, thereby crimping the lower corner of the gasket base in place.

It will be readily seen that instead of spinning the funnel spout I2 from seamless tubing it may well be formed from a. fiat blank of any suitable sheet metal, in which case the edges of the blank would be joined in a side seam.

Also the collar 2| may be joined to the body I9 as a separate piece instead of being integral as is shown in the preferred illustration.

In order to assure the ultimate consumer that he gets the brand of lubricating 011 he asks and pays for, the tamper-proof oil container body l3 may be marked with the brand of oil it contains by lithographing or labeling or in any other suitable manner. Fig. 1 shows an example of such marking.

The funnel spout I2 may be made in a number of different sizes and diameters to telescopingly fit corresponding sizes and diameters of containers. It has been found by experience with the trade that quart, half gallon, gallon and five quart ,size containers are in greatest demand. However, containers of other sizes may be manufactured and used and the funnel spout I2 may be made to fit any size container.

In actual practice, the oil container and funnel spout dispenser may be manipulated as follows:

When a unit charge of oil is to be dispensed into the crank case of an automobile at a filling station, the attendant takes a filled, sealed and labeled oil container I I of quart, half gallon, gallon or five quart size, as the case may be, and opens it by prying up the panel I6 along the score line H, either partly, as shown in Fig. 1, or entirely, by means of any handy sharp instnmient or tool, such as a screw driver or knife.

He then selects the proper size funnel spout dispenser and telescopes the wide, open end of the funnel spout l2 over the top of the opened container, past the seam I5, so that the collar 2| assumes a position just below the seam, with the gasket 26 elastically and tightly embracing the cylindrical wall of the container body I3, so that no oil can escape between the gasket and the container body and so that the funnel forms a pouring unit with the container.

The container and funnel are then tilted to pouring position, as illustrated in Fig. 3, where reference numeral 21 indicates the filling neck of an automobile crank case, and the oil is thus readily transferred from the container I I, through the funnel l2, and into the filling opening of the crank case filling neck 21.

Instead of merely resting the part 24 upon the part 21, the funnel neck 24 may be projected into the filling opening of the neck 21 a sufiicient dis-.

tance to hold the funnel l2 and container I I in pouring position without, other support. The attendant may then leave the device in this position while he goes for another container and funnel. In order to pemiit the rapid draining of the oil container, an air vent hole 28 is provided in the body I9 of the funnel spout I2.

The funnel neck 24 is of such diameter and taper that it will fit the filling hole of any standard motor car from the smallest to the largest.

It is thought that the invention and many of its attendant advantages will be understood from the foregoing description, and it will be apparent that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit and scope oi. the invention or sacrificing all of its material advantages, the form hereinbefore described being merely a preferred embodiment thereof.

I claim:

1. The combination in an oil dispensing device, of a sealed, non-refillable container having a scored end which may be readily broken to open the container and dispense the oil and having an outward projection at its top, and a tubular pouring spout adapted to sealingly engage the container about said opened end and to deliver the oil to a place of deposit, said spout having yielding means to pass over said outward projection and to tightly embrace the container so as to form a pouring unit therewith.

2. An oil delivery device, comprising a funnel shaped body adapted to telescopingly receive the opened end of an oil container, said body being provided with a sealing element which projects inside of the funnel wall and which is pushed back to allow insertion of said container, said sealing element thereupon tightly embracing the inserted container in liquid tight sealing engagement to form therewith a pouring unit.

3. In a device for dispensing liquid and the like from cans, the combination of a body having a can-embracing part. and a dispensing part provided with a pouring opening, said embracing part being provided with a sealing gasket adapted to make a liquid-tight contact around the cylindrical part of a can, said gasket being adapted to yield so as to pass over a projecting endseam to thereafter make said liquid-tight contact below said seam.

' 4. In a device for dispensing liquid and the like from cans, the combination of a body provided with a dispensing spout and an open bottom end adapted to embrace a can, said open end being provided at its inner side with a seat for a gasket, and a yieldable gasket held in said seat and projecting inward beyond the inner surface of said body, said gasket being adapted to yieldingly slip over an end closure of a liquid holding can and form a liquid-tight joint with said can.
