Patented Jan. 13, 1948 CONTAINER Edgar Watson, Towson, Md., assignor to The Nelson Company, Baltimore, Md., a corporation of Maryland Application November 14, 1945, Serial No. 628,476
5 Claims.
accidentally. By virtue of my construction, shock stresses imparted to either end of a container are transmitted to the opposite end and also to the side wall of the container, tending to minimize the efiects of such impacts and thereby overcoming the possibility of the containers being broken or seriously damaged.
In accordance with this invention, the container may comprise a tubular side wall adapted to register with an annular groove formed in a chime ring disposed at each of its opposite ends.
The lower chime ring may, if desired, be formed integralwith the bottom wall, while the upper chime ring is adapted to receive a detachable closure for permitting ready access to the interior of the container. A plurality of members, such as metal bands or straps, are secured to the bottom chime ring, extend upwardly along the interior of the side wall, and are secured to the upper chime ring.. These members are preferably stressed in tension, with the result that the side wall is stressed in compression. I find that two pairs of diametrically opposed members may be used advantageously with my containers in most instances. When relatively large containers are used, it is recommended that a greater number of pairs of members be employed.
It is the primary object of this invention to provide a container that is capable of effectively absorbing impacts imparted to either end thereof due to rough handling or the like.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a relatively lightweight container of the character indicated, that is simple in design, sturdy in construction, and reasonable to manufacture.
These, as well as other objects, together with the advantages obtainable by the practice of this invention, will be readily comprehended by persons skilled in the art upon reference to the following detailed description taken in conjunction with the annexed drawing, which respectively describe and illustrate two embodiments of the invention.
In the drawing:
Figure 1 is a. top plan view of a container illustrating one embodiment of the invention, and
showing the top closure partly cut away for better illustration;
Figure 2 is a view in elevation of the container depicted in Figure 1;
Figure 3 is an enlarged vertical cross-sectional view, partly broken away and taken along line 3-3 of Figure 1;
Figure 4 is an enlarged vertical cross-sectional view, partly broken away and taken along line 4-4 of Figure 1 with the top closure omitted;
Figures 5 and 6 correspond to Figures 3 and 4, respectively, and are illustrative of a second embodiment of the invention; and
Figure '7 is a top plan view of Figure 6.
Referring now to the drawing, wherein like reference numerals denote corresponding parts throughout the several views, and more particularly to Figures 1-4, inclusive, thereof, the container includes a tubular side wall 10 that is preferably cylindrical and that may be composed of laminated kraft paper, or the like. A bottom wall II is provided with an integral depending generally U-shaped peripheral flange or chime ring l2 that is flared at its extremity Hi to permit of the ready reception of the lower end portion of side wall III.
A chime ring I4 is formed so as to provide an annular recess l5 and is flared at its outer edge I6 for the ready reception of the upper end portion of side wall l0, Chime ring I4 is also provided with an inner lip or curl I! that is notched or flattened at at least two pairs of diametrically opposed regions l8, as is best shown in Figures 1 and 4. Spaced members l9, preferably in the. nature of metallic bands or straps, are secured,
such as by welding, to chime ring l2, project upwardly along the interior of side wall I0, and are bent over chime ring M to which they are attached in any desired manner, such as by welding. It will be noted from an inspection of Figures 1 and 4, that each member 19 has its upper portion disposed in a corresponding notched region l8. At the time the container is assembled, members I9 are stressed in tension.
A closure or top cover 20 consists of a planar central portion 2| and a marginal portion 22 that is slightly flared upwardly. Closure 2|] is adapted to be inserted into chime ring H in a manner to snugly and frictionally engage the inner face of the ring and seat against the edge of lip 11, which serves as a stop to limit relative movement between the closure and ring M. It will be apparent that closure 20 may be detached from ring I 4 by a simple prying operation.
The embodiment of the invention shown in Figures 5-7 includes a bottom chime ring 25, that is generally U-shaped in cross section to provide an annular recess 26 and that is flared at its outer extremity 21 to facilitate reception or the lower end portion of side wall [0. An upper chime ring 25', that may be identical with lower chime ring 25, is correspondingly generally U-shaped in cross section to provide an annular recess 26' and is flared at its outer extremity 21' to readily receive the upper end portion of side wall Ill. This embodiment of the invention contemplates the provision of a closure at each end of the container. The bottom closure 20 may be the same as top closure 20and is' adapted to be mounted in position in the same manner. This embodiment of the invention also includes at least two pairs of spaced diametrically opposed members or straps 28 that serve the same purpose as members IS in the earlier described embodiment. Upper and lower end portions 29 and 30, respectively, of each member 28 proiect.laterally and inwardly of side wall l0 and function as stops for limiting movement of the corresponding closures with respect to their chime rings. Each member 28 is disposed within side wall I0, is seecured to bottom ring 25 and top ring 25 by welding or in any other desiredmanner, and is stressed in tension,
While the invention has been herein shown and described in simple and practicable forms, it is recognized that certain parts or elements are representative of other parts or elements which may be used in substantially the same manner to accomplish substantially the same results. Therefore, it should be understood that the invention is not to be limited to the exact details described herein, but is to be accorded the full scope and protection of the appended claims.
I claim:
1. In a container of the character described, a side wall consisting of-a single section of cylindrical tubing, bottom closure means having a recess receiving the lower end portion of the side wall, a ring having a recess receiving the upper portion of the side wall, a plurality of spaced members disposed. substantially wholly within the side wall and independent thereof, each member being secured at its opposite ends to said means and the ring, respectively.
2. In a container of the character described, a side wall consisting of a single section of cylindrical tubing, a bottom wall including a generally U-shaped depending peripheral flange receiving the lower end portion of the side wall, a ring having a recess receiving the upper end-portion of the side wall,a plurality of spaced members disposed substantially wholly withinthe side wall and independent thereof, each member having one end portion positioned between the inner surface of the side wall and the peripheral flange, each member being secured at its opposite ends to the peripheral flange and the ring, respectively.
3. In a container of the character described, a side wall consisting of a single section of cylindrical tubing, a bottom wall including a generally U-shaped depending peripheral flange receiving the lower end portion of the side wall, a ring having a recess receiving the upper end portion of the side wall, a closure insertable in the ring from one end thereof, means carried by the ring for limiting movement of the closure with respect to the ring in one direction, a plurality of spaced members disposed substantially wholly within the side wall and independent thereof, each member having one end portion positioned between the inner surface of the side wall and the peripheral flange, each member being secured at its opposite ends to the peripheral flange and the ring, respectively.
4. In' a container of the character described, a side wall consisting of a single section of cylindrical tubing, bottom closure means comprising a first ring having an annular recess receiving the lower end portion of the side wall, a second ring having an annular recess receiving the upper end portion of the side wall, and a plurality of spaced members wholly within the side wall, each member extending upwardly along the interior of the side wall and being secured to each ring.
5. In a container of the character described, a side wall consisting of a single section of cylindrical tubing, a first ring having an annular recess receiving the lower end portion of the side wall, a second ring having an annular recess receiving the upper end portion of the side wall, a plurality of spaced members wholly within the side wall, each member extending upwardly along the interior of the side wall and being secured to each ring, a closure insertable in each ring from the outer end thereof, the end portions of each member projecting laterally and inwardly of the side wall to limit movement of each closure with respect to the corresponding ring in one direction.
