DISPENSING DEVICE Filed March 15, 1938 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 Inventor E2922] J elzf'j en/ BBQMMIWL Afiorneus Patented Oct. 18, 1938 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Application March 15,
2 Claims.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in dispensing devices for bottles, particularly liquor bottles, and has for its primary object to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, an article of this character embodying a novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts whereby the contents of the bottle may be conveniently dispensed in predetermined, uniform quantities in a sanitary and generally satisfactory manner.
Another very important object of the invention is to provide, in a dispensing device of the type comprising a measuring container adapted to be mounted on a bottle, a novel construction and arrangement of valves for controlling the filling and emptying of said container.
Other objects of the invention are to provide a dispensing device of the character described which will be comparatively simple in construction, strong, durable, highly efficient and reliable in use, compact, attractive in appearance and which may be manufactured at low cost.
All of the foregoing and still further objects and advantages of the invention will become apparent from a study of the following specification, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein like characters of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and wherein:
Figure l is a view in side elevation of an embodiment of the invention, showing same mounted on a bottle.
Figure 2 is a view in vertical section through the device, showing the position of the valves when the measuring container is being filled from the bottle.
Figure 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 but showing the position of the valves when the measuring container is being emptied.
Figure 4 is a view in vertical section through the device with the transparent container omitted.
Figure 5 is a view in horizontal section, taken substantially on the line 5-5 of Fig. 4.
Figure 6 is a view partially in side elevation and partially in vertical section, showing the device adapted for insertion in the unthreaded neck of a bottle.
Referring now to the drawings in detail, it will be seen that the embodiment of the invention which has been illustrated comprises a measuring container which is designated generally by the reference numeral l. The container I includes a body 2 of suitable transparent material, 55 preferably glass, of substantially the shape 1938, Serial No. 196,053
shown to advantage in Fig. 1 of the drawings. Threadedly mounted on the end portions of the transparent body 2 is a top 3 and a bottom 4, said top and bottom being removable. Depending from the bottom 4 is a threaded sleeve 5 which is adapted to be screwed on the neck 6 of a bottle I. An intake opening 8 for the container I is provided in the bottom 4,
Fixed in the top 3 of the measuring container I and extending through said top is a pouring spout 9. Also fixed in the top 3 and depending therefrom is a sleeve l0 having formed therein a longitudinal slot II. A stem I2 is slidably mounted in the sleeve l0 and has mounted on its upper end a head l3. Mounted on the lower end of the stem I2 is a valve l4 which is engageable with the bottom 4 in a manner to close the intake opening 8, said valve l4 having mounted therein a face 15 of suitable material, such as cork.
Projecting from the stem I2 at an intermediate point is an arm 16 having mounted thereon a valve H which is engageable with the inner end of the pouring spout 9 for closing said pouring spout. Mounted in the valve ll is a face l8 of suitable resilient material, preferably cork. A coil spring I9 yieldingly maintains the stem l2 in raised position, in which position the valve I4 is open and the valve i1 is closed. Fixed in the top 3 is a vent tube 20 which extends to a point adjacent the bottom 4 of the container I. It will be observed that the pouring spout 9 and the vent tube 20 are located on opposite side portions of the top 3.
In Fig. 6 of the drawings, the device is shown mounted on a bottle 2| having an unthreaded neck 22. The reference numeral 23 designates generally an adapter in the form of a plug engageable in the bottle neck 22 and comprising a tube 24 having a head 25 on one end screwed into the sleeve 5. A tapered cork sleeve 26 is provided on the tube 24 for engagement in the bottle neck 22.
It is thought that the operation of the device will be readily apparent from a consideration of the foregoing. To dispense the contents of the bottle, said bottle is tipped to the position shown in Figs. 2 and 3 of the drawings for filling the container l, the valve [4 being in open position and the pouring spout 9 being closed by the valve 11. Thestem I2 is then actuated against the tension of the spring IQ for closing the opening 8 and for opening the spout 9 thereby emptying the container 1. The arm l6, travelling in the slot ll of the sleeve l0, maintains the valve H in proper position for engagement with the inner end oi the pouring spout 9. Air enters the container I through the vent 20 to facilitate the discharge of the liquid from said container. When the container I has been thus emptied it may be quickly filled again by simply releasing the stem l 2 and permitting the spring II to function. This operation may be repeated as many times as desired. When the device is not in use the pouring spout 9 is normally closed by the valve II. The bottom I is so formed that all of the liquid in the container I will drain back into the bottle when said bottle is placed in an upright position. The construction and arrangement is such that the parts may be readily disassembled or taken apart when desired, as for cleaning. If desired, the device may be incorporated in the bottle or other container when it is made.
It is believed that the many advantages 01' a dispensing device construction in accordance with the present invention will be readily understood and although preferred embodiments of said device are as illustrated and described, it is to be understood that further modifications and changes in the details of construction may be resorted to which will fall within the scope of the invention as claimed.
What is claimed is:
1. A dispensing device of the class described comprising a measuring container including a top and bottom having outlet and inlet openings, respectively, therein, a sleeve mounted in the top having a longitudinal slot therein, a stem slidably mounted in the sleeve, an arm mounted on said stem and operable in the slot, and valves on said arm and on one end of the stem for alternately closing the openings in the top and the bottom 0! the container.
2. A dispensing device of the class described comprising a measuring container including a transparent body, a removable top on one end of said body, a pouring spout mounted on the top and extending therethrough, a removable bottom on the other end of the body, means on said bottom for removably mounting the container on a bottle, said bottom having an intake opening therein for communication with the bottle, a sleeve fixed in the top and extending therethrough, said sleeve having a longitudinal slot therein, a stem extending slidably through the sleeve, an operating head on one end of the stem, a valve on the other end of said stem for closing the intake opening, an arm on the stem operable in the slot, a valve on said arm engageable with the inner end of the pouring spout for closing same when the first named valve is in open position, a coil spring operatively connected to the stem for opening the first named valve and closing the second named valve, and a vent tube mounted in the top.
