Description

S. M. CROCE Dec. 11, 1951 m anwb l l N W ATOMIZER Filed Jan. l0, 1951 INVENTOR.

Patented Dec. l1, 1951 L y UNITED STATES A'roMlzER v --Santy M. Croce, Uniondale, N. Y., assigner toY The Wescot Development f Corporation, Brooklyn, N. Y., a corporation of New York v Application January 10, 1951, Serial No. 205,370

This invention relates to perfume atomizers and has for one of its objects to provide a simply constructed, easily manufactured perfume atomizer.

Another object is to provide a perfume atomizer in which the atomizing apparatus may also be used to seal the bottle so that escape of the valuable perfume contained in the :bottle is prevented.

Another object is to provide a perfume atomizer constructed of materials which are impervious to the alcohols and/or oils contained in the perfume.

A still further. object is to provide a perfume atomizer made from polyethylene plastic.

`ther objects and advantages of the atomizer will become apparent in the description.

In the drawings: Y

Fig. 1 illustrates the atomizer and perfume bottle assembly;

Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional view taken on lines 2-2 of Fig. 1 illustrating the atomizer apparatus in operative position;

Fig. 3 is a partial sectional view similar to Fig. 2 showing the atomizer apparatus in inoperative and bottle sealing position;

Fig. 4 is an exploded view illustrating the sealing means; and

Fig. 5 is a plan view of the spring.

The sealing and atomizing unit I comprises a lower stopper-like member 4 which has at its upper end a disc 5 and at its lower end a hollow tube 4a depending therethrough. Member 4 has at its upper end, but below the disc 5, a series of gaskets 'l and 8 which iit into the neck Ii of the bottle I in vapor tight relationship therewith so that the contents of the bottle I cannot leak out around the member 4. Upon the upper surface of disc 5 are two projections I0 and II, which are on either side of the general center line (not shown) of the member 4 and equidistant from said imaginary line. Tube 4a. of member 4 is extended to form a passage in the stopper section of the member and through the knob I0. The second knob I I on the portion 5 of member 4 is solid.

The upper portions of the sealing and atomizing unit I comprises in part an inner stem member I2, the lower portion of which has a disc formation I3 of similar configuration as the disc member 5 of stopper member 4. This member I3 has recesses I4 and I5 on its underside which are on either side of the general center line (not shown) of member I3 and equidistant therefrom. Recesses I4 and I5 are in matching relationship with the knobs I0 and II of the disc 5. Inner stem member I3 has included therein a passage I6 extending from its upper portion down through 4 claims. (o1. a99-ss) recess I4. The other recess I5 of member I3 is solid or blind." The upper end of the'hollow bore I6 is connected to the discharge tube I1 including an opening I'Ia of outer stem member I8. It is obvious, howeventhat the knobs may be on member I3, and the-recesses on member 5.

As may be readily noted, the matching relationship of the knob members IIJ and II with the recess members I4 and I5 provides, in one position (Fig. 2), a continuous passage through which the perfume, or whatever is contained in the bottle I, may be withdrawn upon actuation of the atomizer in the usual manner. In a second position, as i1- lustrated in Fig. 3, the hollow tube 4a of member 4 and the hollow passage I6 of inner stem member l2 no longer are connected through the respective knob and recess members, but are now 180 offset from one another, sealing the contents therein.

Outer stem member I8, containing the discharge opening I'Ia, passage I'I and the deformable actuation member or bulb 24, is provided with a lower flange portion I9 against which the cap member 20 is biased by means of spring 2I ,25 between the cap member and the upper portion of the disc formation I3 of the inner stem member I2. Cap 20 is in threaded relationship with the outer side of the neck 6 of the bottle I. Inner stem member I2 and outer stem member I8 are secured together in any acceptable fashion as by gluing or by interlocking configurations after the parts (member I8. cap 20. spring 2I and member I2) are assembled in the relationship shown in the drawings.

When cap 20 is threaded onto the neck 6 of the bottle, the disc formation I3 of the inner stem member I2 is brought to bear on the disc top 5 of the member 4. The spring 2| at all times forces the disc I3 against the disc 5 so that when the recesses and knobs are in proper relationship, a good match is aiforded.

The operator of the device, after removing the cork from the newly purchased bottle, inserts the stopper member 4. The user then screws the cap 20, and, naturally, the remainder of the parts, onto the neck 6 of the bottle until the upper and lower parts thereof are in resiliently urged relationship to one another.

If the user then wishes to seal the bottle so that the contents cannot evaporate, the user merely turns the outer stem relative to the stopper member so that the parts are in the relationship shown in Fig. 3, preventing egress of the container uid from the bottle.

" In order to be able to use the device as an PATENT OFFICE d atomizer, the operator rotates the outer stem member 180 relative to the stopper so that the parts are in the relationship illustrated in Fig. 2. This action is permitted since the outer stem member I8 and its associated inner stem member I6 may move slightly upwardly against the bias of spring 2| (the cap 20 remaining stationary), while the knobs and recesses are being reversed in matching relationship. The use of polyethylene plastic for all parts of my device (excepting spring 2| and bulb 24), is an important feature of my invention when the same is intended for use as a perfume atomizer, since the oils and alcohols contained in the perfume do not attack this plastic. 'It will be un-` derstood, of course, that the invention is not limited to the use of said polyethylene plastic.

I have described what I believe to be the best embodiment of my invention. I do not wish,"

however, to be confined to the embodiment shown, but what I desire to cover by Letters Patent is set forth in the appended claims. l l

What is claimed is:

1. In an atomizer, the combination of a stopper member having a passage therethrough displaced from the center line of said stopper member, a stem member having a passage therethrough likewise displaced from said. center line so that in one relative position of said. stem member and said stopper member said passages are in alignment with each other, one of said members having a projection through which the passage of one of said members extends and the other of said-members having a recess into which said projection enters when said passages are in communicating relationship with each other, one of said members additionally having' a second recess into which said projection enters when said members are angularly displaced from each other about said axis, said second recess serving to form a seal for the passage terminating in said projection, and resilient means for yieldingly urging one of said members against the other of said members.

2. Inan atomizer, the vcombination as set forth in claim 1, 'said resilient means including a cap Vmember and a spring between said cap member in claim 2, said stopper member having two projections on its upper surface, said stem member having two recesses on its lower surface.

4. In an atomizer, the combination as set forth Ain claim 3, said stopper member, stem member and said cap being formed from polyethylene plastic.`
