Description

A N 7, WM, A. W. ARNOLD DISPENSING CONTAINER Filed June 27, 1955 All! Patented Apr. 7, 1936 DISPENSING CONTAINER.
Albert W. Arnold, Miami, Fla.
Application June 27, 1935, Serial No. 28,731
3 Claims.
My invention relates to an improvement in dispensing containers, of the general character set forth in my application on Lubricating apparatus, Ser. No. 641,065, filed November 3, 1932,
5 and Ser. No. 687,711, filed August 31, 1933.
In discharging heavy grease from a container, it is necessary that some means be employed for applying pressure to the top surface of the grease, in order to force the grease through an outlet in the lower portion of the container.
When air pressure is used, the extruding grease will follow a line of least resistance, so there is a tendency to form an inverted cone in the upper area of the grease in the container which eventually will reach the base where the grease is issuing therefrom, with the result that the air will pass out instead of forcing out the grease. This is objectionable because it may result in grease not reaching the part to be lubricated although the service man may be unconscious of this condition.
It is the purpose of my invention to obviate all this and to provide an equalized distribution of the grease during the entire period of discharge from the container, insuring uniform fiow therefrom. Thus thick, heavy grease may be used with my apparatus in containers of this design, although hitherto this was impractical, if not impossible.
This invention consists in a container having a discharge somewhere near its lower end, above which is placed a disk having outlets of graduated size, the smallest of which are nearest the outlet, whether that be in the side of the container, or in the bottom thereof.
In the accompanying drawing,
Fig. 1 is a vertical section;
Fig. 2 is a horizontal section on the line 22, of Fig. 1;
Fig. 3 is a vertical section of a slightly modified construction; and
Fig. 4 is a horizontal section on the line 44, of Fig. 3.
The numeral I represents a tank or container having a top or cover 2, screwed to the upper end, 45 and 3 is a pipe leading into the tank for the discharge of air to create pressure within the tank. An outlet pipe 4, leads from the side of the tank or container for the discharge of the grease G, contained in the tank or container.
A horizontal partition 5 extends across the tank at or near the lower end and this partition is provided with orifices 6 for the discharge of the contents of the tank or container.
These orifices 6, are graduated in size, the smallest orifices, as shown, being near or adjacent to the discharge pipe 4, where naturally the grease would commence to issue.
The purpose of the orifices of graduated size is to resist this tendency for the grease to leave the tank or container at a given point, thereby forming a cone which it is the purpose of my invention to avoid, and which I effectively avoid by some form of graduated outlet, as illustrated in this form of the invention.
In Figs. 3 and 4, the elements I, 2, 3, 4 and 5, are the same except that the outlet pipe 4 is located at a central point in thebottom of the tank or container.
Consequently there is a rearrangement of the orifices 6, which in this form, are graduated in size as they approach the center of the tank, the smallest being adjacent to the discharge pipe 4, just as in the form illustrated in Figs. 1 and 2, the only difference being that in the form illustrated in Figs. 3 and 4, the smallest orifices 8, are at the center due to the centrally located discharge, whereas in Figs. 1 and 2, the smallest orifices are at one side of the tank, due to the discharge pipe 4 being at that point.
By this arrangement of orifices, the formation of the cone in the grease, and the discharge of air in consequence is absolutely precluded in this very simple way and by this very simple mechanism.
A tank of this description can be charged andv made portable for convenient use wherever found desirable.
I claim:
1. A tank or container having an outlet at the lower end and provided with a partition above said outlet, the partition having discharge orifices gradually decreasing in size as they approach the discharge outlet.
3. A tank or container having a partition at a point near the lower end and an outlet in the bottom thereof, said partition having a plurality of discharge orifices of gradually diminishing size as they approach a point nearest to the discharge outlet.
ALBERT W. ARNOLD.
