Description

Sept. 7, 1937. F'.'R. LUECK BEER DISPENSER AND COOLER IIIi Filed Feb. 8, 1934 I INVENTOR. f/'42? 05216 a? AITORNEY Patented Sept. 7, 1937 Pres-i" owls 2,092,320 BEER DISPENSER AND COOLER Frank R. Lueck, Milwaukee, Wis., assignor to The Central Brass Mfg. Company, Cleveland, Ohio,
a corporation of Ohio Application February 8,
6 Claims.
' This invention relates to beer dispensers and particularly to coolers therefor.
An object of the present invention is the provision of a simple and inexpensive beer dispensing cooler which may be readily structurally combined with present commercial forms of tapping equipment so as to provide a convenient means for the dispensing of draft beer at palatable temperatures.
The cooler of the present invention is particularly adapted for home, club, picnic, or other uses where bar facilities are not available for the serving of draft beer.
Other more specific objects and advantages will appear, either expressed or implied, from the following description of a beer dispensing cooler constructed in accordance with the present invention. V
The single figure of the accompanying draw-- ing is a vertical sectional View of a dispensing cooler embodying this invention, showing the same applied to a conventional tap rod.
The dispensing cooler shown comprises an ice receptacle ID of appropriate form having a length of beer conducting tubing ll therein. By arranging the tubing in the form of a coil adjacent the side Walls of the receptacle, a maximum length of tubing may be employed without unduly limiting the ice receiving capacity of the receptacle.
The receptacle I0 is shown applied to the projecting end of a conventional tap rod l2, which extends upwardly from the contents of the barrel I3 through a conventional tap M, releasably secured to the barrel in a well known manner.
In this instance the receptacle H] is fixed at its bottom IE to a supporting column or post I5 which extends upwardly therethrough into a cross member ll secured to and spanning the top of the receptacle. The post I5 is hollowed out, as at I8, to telescopically receive the end of the tap rod l2, and is provided with an appropriate packing gland l9, which serves to releasably secure the post l5 to the rod l2 and to provide a fluid tight joint therebetween.
The channel l8 in the post I5 is connected to one end 20 of the tubing ll through a union 2| applied to a nipple 22 on the post, and the other end 23 of the tubing is similarly connected to a separate channel 24- in the upper end of the post, through a union 25 and nipple 26. The channel 24 communicates with an appropriate faucet '21 through which the beer is dispensed, the faucet being mounted preferably upon the upper reduced end 28 of the post.
1934, Serial No. 710,274
It will thus be noted that in the device shown the post I5 constitutes a support for the receptacle II], the tubing H, and the faucet 21; italso provides a simple and convenient mounting means by which those parts may be readily applied, as a unit, to the tap rod l2; and it also serves to conduct the beer from the rod 12 to the tubing H and from the tubing to the faucet 21. In its passage through the tubing H the beer is chilled by the ice in the receptacle and discharges through the faucet at a palatable temperature.
Various changes may be made in the invention hereinabove specifically described without departing from or sacrificing the advantages of the invention as defined in. the appended claims.
I claim:
1. In a dispensing cooler the combination of a tap for application to a barrel, 2, tap rod supported by the tap, a receptacle for receiving a cooling medium, a coil of tubing in said receptacle for conducting a beverage therethrough, means for mounting said receptacle on the tap rod for support thereby, said mounting means including means for establishing communication between the tap rod and one end of said tubing by application of said mounting means to the conduit, and a faucet communicating with the other end of said tubing.
2. A dispensing cooler comprising a tap applied to a beverage supply barrel, a tap rod supported by the tap, a receptacle for receiving a cooling medium, a coil of tubing in the receptacle for conducting the beverage therethrough, a receptacle support having a channel to receive the tap rod, releasable means for effecting a tight connection between the support and the tap rod, means connecting one end of the tubing to the channel, and a faucet connected with the other end of the tubing.
3. In a dispensing cooler for application to an upstanding beverage conduit, the combination of an elongated hollow member for connection with the conduit, conduit-engaging means upon the member securing the member to the conduit to thereby support the member, a receptacle for a refrigerant surrounding the member and supported thereby, a coil of tubing in the receptacle having one end communicating with the hollow member, and a faucet communicating with the other end of the tubing.
4. A dispensing cooler comprising an ice receptacle, a beverage conduit therein, a faucet carried by said receptacle, and an elongated hollow member having two separate longitudinal channels formed therein, one of said channels being connected with one end of said conduit, and the other of said channels being connected With the other end of said conduit and with said faucet.
5. In a dispensing cooler for removable application to a beverage supply conduit, the combination of a receptacle for receiving a cooling medium, an upright post in said receptacle having a channel to receive the conduit, releasable means for efiecting a tight connection between said post and conduit, a faucet, said post having a second channel communicating with said faucet, and a coil of tubing in said receptacle with its opposite ends communicating respectively with said channels.
6. A dispensing cooler for application to an upstanding beverage conduit, comprising a receptacle for a refrigerant, an upstanding elongated member passing through the receptacle and in supporting engagement with the bottom of the receptacle, a brace connecting the top of the receptacle to the member, means for mounting the member upon the conduit to thereby support the receptacle, a channel in the member communicating with the conduit, a coil of tubing within the receptacle communicating at one end with the channel, and a faucet communicating with the other end of the tubing.
