Patented June 12, 1951 ADAPTER FOR FUEL CAN SPOUT FOR AC- COMMODATION F NOZZLES OF DIFFER- ENT DIAMETERS Richard J. Miksis, Chicago, Ill.

Application February 27, 1950, Serial No. 146,606

This invention comprises novel and useful improvements in fuel can dispensing spouts, and more particularly pertains to a dispensing spout which is adapted to be used on various different sized nozzles.

The important object of this invention is to provide a dispensing spout which can be used interchangeably on fluid containers having different sized nozzles; which is ofsimple construction yet durable and highly efficient for the purposes intended.

An important feature of this invention resides in the provision for a stepped socket having outer, intermediate, and-inner portions'of progressively reduced diameters for receiving nozzles of different sizes.

Another feature of this invention resides in the provision for a stepped socket in conformity with the preceding feature and an internally threaded conduit which threadedly engages the externally threaded surface of one of the portions of the stepped socket, which conduit abuts against one of the annular flanges which connects adjacent portions and protects the portion upon which it is threadedly engaged and also all portions of reduced diameter received therein.

These, together with various ancillary objects and features, are attained by this device, a preferred embodiment of which has been illustrated by way of example only in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a fragmentary perspective view of the dispensing spout shown attached to the nozzle of a fuel can;

Figure 2 is a side elevational view of the dispensing spout, parts being broken away and shown in section for convenience of explanation; and

Figure 3 is a tranverse sectional view taken substantially on the plane 3-3 of Figure 2.

Referring now more specifically to the accompanying drawings wherein like numerals designat similar parts throughout the various views, it will be seen that there is provided a dispensing spout indicated generally by the numeral Ill which, as shown in Figure 1, is attached to a nozzle [2 of a fluid container M. In order that the dispensing spout It may be attached to nozzles of different sizes, there is provided a stepped socket indicated generally by the numeral it, which socket consists of an outer sleeve is, an intermediate sleeve 20, and an inner sleeve 22. The outer and intermediate sleeves are joind together, or formed integral with each other as by 2 Claims. (01. 222568) means of the annular flange 24, and similarly the intermediate sleeve 20 and the inner sleeve 22 are joined by a second annular flange 26. Each of these sleeves is internally threaded to receive the corresponding externally threaded nozzle I 2, and at least one and preferably the intermediate sleeve 20 is also externally threaded. Depending upon the material used and the mode of manufacture, the threads may be cut in the material of the stepped sleeve It, or the material may be deformed into corrugations which provide both internal and external screw threads on opposite surfaces of the stepped socket, as more'clearly shown in Figure '2 of'the drawings. i

A conduit 28, which may be of the flexible construction as shown in the drawings, is provided with an internally threaded end portion 30, which end portion threadedly engages the corresponding externally threaded sleeve, such as the intermediate sleeve 20, the end 32 of the conduit 20 abutting against one of the annular flanges, such as 24, to provide an additional sealing surface. Obviously, a suitable resilient material may be attached to the annular flange 24 to insure a positive sealing engagement between the conduit 28 and the stepped socket I 6.

In order to filter the fluid which passes therethrough and also to provide a more even flow of fluid, the conduit 28 is provided at its other end with a screen or filter member 34, which member is secured to the conduit in any desired manner such as by the annular internally threaded cylindrical member 36 which has an inwardly extending, screen-engaging rim 38 thereon. The cylindrical member 36 is screwthreadedly received upon the externally threaded end portion 40 of the conduit 28, the inwardly depending rim 38 of the cylindrical member 36 retaining the screen member 34 in engagement with the edge 42 of the externally threaded end portion 40 of the conduit 28. As is readily apparent from a consideration of Figure 2, the cylindrical member 36 may be formed by deforming the material thereof into corrugations which provide both internal and external screw threads on opposite surfaces thereof, the internal screwthreaded surface being engageable by the threads of the end portion 40, and the external screwthreaded surface of the cylindrical member 36 receiving a correspondingly internally threaded imperforate cap which will sealingly engage under the conduit, such as during the transportation of the container l 4 and the like.

In order to enhance the flow of fluid through the sleeve 22, there may be provided circumferentially spaced bores 44 therein, which bores admit air which is contained in the conduit 28 and which enters the end 42, to the low-pressure area between the inside of the sleeve 22, and the fluid jet which passes therethrough.

From the foregoing, it is thought that the construction and operation of the device will be readily understood, and further discussion is believed to be unnecessary. However, since numerous modifications will readily occur to those skilled in the art after a consideration of the foregoing specification and accompanying drawings, it is not intended to limit the invention to that shown and described, but all suitable modi fications may be resorted to falling within the scope of the appended claims.

Having described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A dispensing spout comprising a stepped socket having outer, intermediate and inner portions and annular flanges joining said portions, each of said portions having screw threads on their inner surface for receiving nozzles of different sizes, screw threads on the external surface of said intermediate sleeve, a conduit having an internally threaded end receiving said externally threaded portion and abutting one of said annular flanges, said conduit protectively shielding said inner portion, said inner sleeve having circumferentially spaced bores therein for increasing the flow of fluid therethrough.

2. A dispensing spout comprising an outer, an intermediate, and an inner sleeve axially aligned with each other, said intermediate and said inner sleeves respectively having progressively reduced diameters, a first annular flange joining the adjacent edges of said outer and intermediate sleeves, a second annular flange joining the adjacent edges of said intermediate and said inner sleeves, each of said sleeves having screw threads on their inner surfaces, each sleeve being adapted to receive a nozzle of a different size, screw threads on the external surface of said intermediate sleeve, a conduit having an internally threaded end engaging said external surface of said intermediate sleeve and abutting said first annular flange.
