Patented Mar. 6, 1951 HOLDER FOR SEALED LIQUID CONTAINER, WITH PUNCTURING -YAND DISPENSING MEANS FOR SAID CONTAINER George C. Schmitltons, Detroit, Mich.

Application March 26, 1948, Serial No. 17,271

This invention relates to a device for dispensing various materials the object of the invention being to provide a means for dispensing the material from an ordinary container and comprises a body in which the container is positioned and a cap for the said body having a pair of conduits by means of which the end of the container may be pierced and from one of which the contents of the container may be dispensed and the'other of which provides for flow of air into the container whereby the contents in the container is under atmospheric pressure as air will flow into the container as the contents are discharged therefrom.

These and other features and objects of the invention are hereinafter more fully described and claimed and a material dispensing apparatus embodying my invention is shown in the acco1i1 panying, drawing in which- I Fig. 1 is a longitudinal section of the device showing the cap positioned thereon.

Fig. 2 is a section taken on line 22 of Fig. 1. g Fig. 3 is a section taken on line 33 of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a plan view of the cap on a smaller scale.

6 Claims. (Cl. 222-86) through the conduit 1.

Fig. 5 is an enlarged view in section of the outlet conduit.

Fig. 6 is a side elevation of Fig. 5. o

The device is particularly useful with tin cans containing a fluid such as condensed milk, fruit juices or other liquid, granular or powdered material and its preferredform comprises a container l for the can la having a handle 2 on one side of the bod and a cover 3 for closing the 'open end of the container.

The body at its open end/is provided with a series of flanges 4 which are in peripherally spaced relation and the cover has a series of flanges 5 similarly spaced so that, when the cover .3 is in the position shown in Fig. 1, the flanges 5 jof.,the cap, by rotation thereof, engage beneath the flanges 4 of the body, as shown in Fig. 2,

thereby holding the cap tightly in position on the The cover 3 has an angularly disposed conduit Z 6: positioned thereon on one side and a similar conduit 1 on the opposite side.

The conduit- 6, ugh which air flows in discharging liquid,

'.'gra r iular or powdered material from the can, is -29? .ca

diameter to providefree flow of air into the 8 that may pierce a container by pressureon the cap; by the users hand. The conduit 6 is positioned to one side of a diametrical line passin 2 .1 By this arrangement the can top is first punctured by means of the cap. The cap is then removed and turned 180 degrees and again forced onto the can whereby the air inlet 6 is enlarged to insure free flow of contents fromthe can when the material is discharged directlyfrom the container.

Furthermore the portion of the conduits entering the container are cone shaped thereby insuring a tight fit in the container and prevents leakage of contents thereabout when being discharged from the container.

In use the can la is first introduced into the container l and the cap 3 is placed on the open end of the body. In so doing the tapered ends of the conduits 6 and 1 cut through the upper end of the container 8 and, due to the taper of the inner end of the said conduits, theopenings in the container are in-tight peripheral contact withthe conduits and thus prevent an escape offluid into the cap member. The upper surface of the bottom 'wall of the container is provided with a central lug I0 to maintain the bot- "tom of the can from surface contact with the inner face of the bottom wall. Otherwise the bottom of the can might stick to the bottom of the container.

Preferably the discharge end of the conduit 1 is cut at an angle less than aright angle as shown to provide free flow of material from the container and eliminates dripping.

. Furthermore the conical end of each of the conduits have the outer sidethereof formed with I and preferably the conduit 6 is larger in diam- .50 U r The conduits 6 and l at the inner end are j. jcut at an angle as'sh'own to provide a sharp edge eter than, the conduit 1 to provide free flow of air into the container as material is discharged through the conduit 1. p

It is believed obvious from the foregoing description that the various objects and features of the invention arev attained by the structural character and relationship ofparts as hereinbefore described and shown in the drawing and that in pouring the contents from the container no ma- "terial may flow into the cap member and thence into the container 1.

Having thus briefly described my invention, its utility and mode of operation, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is-- 1. A device for the dispensing of material from a container formed of a puncturable material comprising a body having an open end and a handle on one side thereof, the open end of the body having a series of peripherally spaced flanges, a cover therefor having a similar series of flanges so arranged that, in placing the cap on the body, the flanges of the cap pass between the flanges of the body to a position beneath the body flanges whereby, in relative rotation oi the cap and body, the cap is held in tight contact with the end of the body, the cap having a pair of conduits each open at one end to atmosphere,

the opposite end of each conduit being so shapfid.

that, in forcing the cap onto the body, the said conduits puncture the end of the container and close the apertures formed therein, the conduit adjacent the handle being at one side of 3. diametrical line passing through the other conduit the arrangement providing that, when the container is tilted to pouring position, air ma flow into the con'ainer through one of the conduits as the contents are discharged through the other conduit.

2. A device for dispensing of material from a .container formed of a puncturable material comprising a body having an open end, the open end of the body having a series of peripherally spaced inwardly or outwardly extending flanges, a cover therefor having a simi ar series f flanges so arran e t a i pl cing the can on he body. the anges of th can ass b we n henanges of th body to a pos ti n en ath the flan es where y, in ive ota ion of the can and body, the can s h ld in tigh -contact with the e d oi the bod the cap having a pair oi c ndu ts e c o en at one end'to atmosphe e, the op s e end 4:0

3. A device for the dispensing of liquids from a container formed of a puncturable material comprising a body having an open end and a handle on one side thereof, the open end of the body having a series of peripherally spaced inwardly or outwardly extending flanges, a cover therefor having an opposite series of flanges so arranged that, in placing the cap on the body, the flanges of the cap pass between the flanges of the body .to a position beneath the flanges whereby, 'in

whereby, in forcing the cap onto the body, the

said conduits puncture the end of the container and closes the pertures formed therein, the cond it ad acent he h ndle being a o e si e-of d -me rica linenassing through the oth r eondui t e a rangement pro ding that, when he s tilted. t pouring position; a r may flow into the can through one of the conduits as the contents discharge through the other conduit.

4. A device for the dispensing of liquid, powdered or granular material from a container formed of a puncturable material comprising a body having an open end and a handle on one side, the open end of the cover and the body respectively having a means whereby rotation of one of the members relative to the other in one direction holds the cap in tight contact with the body, and rotation of the cap in the opposite direction permits the cap to be removed, the cap having a pair of conduits each opening through the cap, the conduit on the handle side being at one side of a diametrical line passing through the other conduit the conduit on the opposite side to maintain atmospheric pressure on the material in the container during a pouring operation.

5. A device for the dispensing of material from a container formed of a puncturable material comprising a body having an open end and a handle on one side, the open end of the cover and the body respectively having a means whereby rotation of one of the members relaive to the other in one direction holds the cap in tight contact with the body, and rotation of the cap in the opposite direction permits the cap to be removed, the cap having a pair of conduits each open through the respective opposite sides of the cap, the conduit on the handle side being at one side of a diametrical line passing through the conduit on the opposite side to maintain atmospheric pressure in the container during a pouring operation, and means for supporting the container from longitudinal displacement in the body.
