3 Claims.
This invention relates to chimes for barrels and has particular reference to a chime employed with a metal beer barrel to protect the same from injury in service.
One object of the invention is to provide a chime having a saddle support disposed against the head of a barrel.
Another object is to provide a chime in which the outer circumferential bead of the chime is substantially solid throughout.
- A further object is to provide a chime formed with a plurality of inwardly curved and straight portions to provide addedsupport for the barrel with the inwardly curved portion, and increased rigidity with the straight portions.
Another object is to provide a saddle support for a barrel with a chime in which the foot of the chime has a width corresponding to the radialextent of the saddle support and is disposed on the same longitudinal plane therewith without the employment of a knuckle radius in the body of the chime.
These and other objects of the invention will appear hereinafter in the description of an embodiment of the invention illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective View of a chime fabricated in accordance with the invention and before assembly with a barrel;
Fig. 2 is a view of part of a barrel assembled with a chime of the intention and with parts broken away and sectioned;
Fig. 3 is a section taken on line 3-3 of Fig. 2;
Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view showing the first forming operation of the chime;
Fig. 5 is a similar View showing the second forming operation on the chime; and
Fig. 6 is a horizontal sectional view showing the final forming of the chime.
Referring to the drawings there is illustrated a barrel having a circular body portion 5, an end head 2, and the chime S which is secured to head 2 and projects outwardly therefrom to protect the barrel from injurious bumps in service.
The chime 3 comprises generally the inner end portion 4, the body section 5, and the foot 6.
The body section 5 of chime a is curved inwardly as at I at circumferentially spaced portions thereof and the indentations l cooperate with the inner end portion i to provide a saddle support for the barrel head 2 which fits within the chime. At the remaining circumferential stantially straight vertical line to give added stiffness and rigidity to the chime.
, The inner end portion 4 of the chime is flared outwardly to conform to the curvature of the head 2 and is secured to the head by a plurality of circumferentially spaced spot welds 9 located on a line slightly removed from the inner end of the chime.
The lower portion I0 of the body section 5 immediately above the foot 6 extends straight and is continuous throughout the circumference of the chime.
The foot 6 has an annular transverse plate H that. extends horizontally. A generally large circumferential bead I2 is integrally provided on the inner edge of plate I I and a relatively smaller circumferential bead I3 is integrally formed on the outer edge of plate II substantially radially opposite the inner bead I2. The outer bead I3- takes the initial bumps to which the chime is subjected in service, and the inner bead I2 operates through the plate II to reinforce the outer bead I3 and provides ready means for handling the barrel.
The inner bead I2 is formed by a reverse bend in the outer end portion of the chime 3. The outer free end I4 of the chime projects straightly from bead I2 toward bead I3 and extends hori zontally beneath the lower portion Ill of body section 5 on top of plate I I within the space formed by the curvature of the outer bead I3. Bead I3, when finally formed, is pressed into engagement with free end I4 of the chime. The construction described provides the foot 6 with three thicknesses of metal, including plate II, the free end I4 of the chime and the upper part of bead I3, constituting a solid ring of metal of substantial cross-section at the area subjected to the severest blows and treatment in service.
When the barrel is in use the initial stress is taken by the thick metal of plate I I, end J4 and the upper part of bead I3 and is then transmitted through the chime to the wall of the barrel. Due to the saddle support of the barrel by the chime a substantial amount of the stress is absorbed by the chime in the same manner as if the barrel were supported by a solid piece of metal of a thickness corresponding substantially to the width of the foot 6. The foot 6 has a width corresponding to the radial extent of the saddle support provided by the indentations I and flared end 4 and is disposed 0n the same longitudinal plane therewith.
The chime 3 is fabricated from sheet metal of areas 8 the body portion 5 extends in a subsuitable gauge.
in fabricating the chime 3 a sheet metal strip, not shown, of suitable thickness and having dimensions to provide the depth in the chime required to receive head 2 of the barrel is rolled into a tube l5 and welded along a longitudinal seam.
The tube is then placed in a press or curling die [6 and the die operates to curl the end of the tube that is to form foot 6 inwardly as shown by the curl H of Fig. 4.
The tube [5 is then placed in another die l8 and final forming of the beads I2 and I3 is accomplished by forcing die I8 against the curl I! until the bead I3 is formed on theoutside and bead I2 is formed on the inside with the end I4 of the chime disposed within bead IS on top of annular plate I l and beneath the upper curvature of outer bead I3 and in engagement therewith.
The chime 3 is next placed on platen I9 and is operated on by punch and mandrel 2!. The
mandrel and punch are complemetary shaped to provide indentations I and the flared upper end portion 4, as illustrated in Fig. 6. The arrows indicate the movement of the punch and mandrel. The chime of the invention provides a saddle support for a beer barrel or the like. struction of the chime provides rigidity therein and enables shocks to be readily absorbed in service before transmission to the barrel with which the chime is employed. In addition the chime is provided with a substantial solid metal ring of considerable cross section at the outer end periphery to take and absorb initial shocks and bumps.
Various embodiments of the invention may be employed Within the scope of the accompanying claims.
We claim:
1. In a circular chime for a barrel or the like, having a body section providing a supporting saddle for said barrel and a foot section provided on the outer end of the chime, said foot section comprising an annular plate having inner and outer circumferential beads disposed in substantially radially opposite positions, and confining a metal edge portion of the chime therebetween, and said metal edge portion of the chime extending beneath the upper curvature of said outer bead and into engagement with substantially the entire inner surface of the outer bead to provide the outer peripheral portion of the chime as a substantially solid metal ring,
The con- 2. A circular chime for a barrel or the like, which comprises a flared inner end portion, a body section having a plurality of inwardly curved portions cooperating with the flared end portion to provide a saddle support for the barrel, a foot section provided on the outer end of the chime in substantially longitudinal alignment with said saddle and comprising an annular plate having inner and outer circumferential beads in substantially radially opposite positions and confining a metal edge portion of the chime therebetween, and said metal edge portion of the chime extending beneath the upper curvature of the outer bead and into engagement with substantially the entire inner surface of the outer bead to provide the outer peripheral portion of the chime as a substantially solid metal ring.
3. A circular chime in combination with a barrel having an end head disposed within the chime, which comprises an inner end portion flared to receive the barrel head and welded thereto to secure the chime and barrel together,
a substantially cylindrical body section extending outwardly from the flared inner end portion and having a plurality of indentations cooperatig with the flared end portion to provide a saddle support for the barrel, and a foot section disposed outwardly of the body section and formed integrally therewith with at least three thicknesses of metal folded tightly over one another at the outer peripheral portion thereof to absorb bumps in service.
