Description

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
PETER S. SMOUT, OF DEGORAH, IOWA.
MILK-CAN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 241,888, dated May 24, 1881.
Application filed March 25, 1881.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, PETER S. SMoUT, of Decoral], in the county of Winneshiek and State of Iowa, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Milk-Cans; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and in which- Figure l is a vertical sectional view. Fig. 2 is a similar view, showing the funnel removed and the tube S in position. Fig. 3 is a detail view, in perspective, of the said tube S, and Fig. 4. is a detailview of the funnel with its cap or cover.
Corresponding parts in the several figures are denoted by like letters of reference.
This invention relates to cans or vessels for carrying milk, cream, and other liquids; and it consists in certain improvements in the construction of the same, which will be hereinafter fully described, and particularly pointed out in the claim.
In the drawings hereto annexed, A represents the body of the can, which is preferably cylindrical in shape and provided with handles B B, by which it may be conveniently lifted and carried. The can A is provided with a cover, O,having a rim, D, fitting inside the can, and provided at its top with an opening, E, surrounded by a cylindrical flange, F. The cover is to be provided with loops G G, registering with loops or staples H H on opposite sides of the 'can, in order thatitmay be locked or sealed while in transit.
I is a float, which slides vertically in the can A. Said float consists of a rim, J, and a central vertical tube, K, connected by a top or cover, L, having handles M, by which the float may be lifted out of the can when desired.
Below-the top L, between rim J and tube K, are formed air-tight chambers N N, by which the float is sustained upon the liquid contained in the can. The tubeKis provided at its upper end with a flaring or funnel-shaped mouth, 0.
(No model.)
I? is a funnel having a long spout, which is capable of being passed through the opening E in cover 0 and through the central tube, K, of the float, reaching to within a short distance of the bottom of can A, as shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings. A suitable detachable cover, R,
is provided for the said funnel, to exclude dirt and dust.
S is a cylindrical tube fitting in the perforation E in cover 0, and provided at its upper closed end with an enlargement or cylindrical chamber, T,which is adapted to fit on the flange F surrounding the opening E, and forming a neatly-fitting cover for the same, as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings.
From the foregoing description, taken in connection with the drawings hereto annexed, the operation and advantages of my invention will be readily understood.
By adjusting 'the funnel P as shown in Fig. 1 the can may be conveniently filled without removing the cover or float, and when the can is full the funnel may be removed and the tube S substituted. in its place, thus closiu g the opening in the cover and preventing the contents of the can from splashing up through the central tube of the float.
Having thus described my invention, I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States- The combination of the can A, float composed of the parts I J L, and provided with the central tube, K, cover (3, having flanged opening E, and tube S, provided with the closed chamber or enlargementTat its up er end, substantially as and for the purpose shown and set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereunto affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
PETER S. SMOUT.
Witnesses G. W. HARRIS, E. B. Moms.
