SPECIFICATIN forming partof Letters Patent No. 260,030, dated June 27, 1852.
Application filed September 1, 1881. (Nomodel.)
To ally whom it may concern Be it known that- I, J OHN H. JOHNSON, residing at Chicago, in the count-yv of Cook and State of Illinois, and a citizen of the United States, haveinvented a new and useful Improvement in Faucets, of which the following is afull description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure l is a vertical longitudinal section showing the valve open. Fig. 2 is a similar section showing the valve closed. Fig. 3 is a section at line of Fig. 1. Fig. 4 is a detail, being a side view ofthe ball-holder. Fig. 5 is a section at line y of Fig. 4. Figs. 6, 7, 8, and 9 represent a modication.
My improvement is primarily designed to be used in water-faucets; and it relates to that class ot' faucets which use a ball-valve.
The construction of faucets having a ballvalve has heretofore been such that when the water is flowing through the faucetthe action of the current upon the ball-valve causes it to move about rapidly, striking with considerable force upon the inner walls of its chamber, producing considerable noise, which is objectionable. The leading object ofmy invention is to overcome this difficulty.
My invention consists essentially in a tubular or hollow plunger or ball-valve support arranged within a faucet-casing, and having a seat to receive a ball or similar valve, whereby the valve will be held away from the walls or sides of the valve-chamber when the said plunger or valve support is so adjusted as to open the valve for permitting the flow of liquid through the faucet.
In the drawings, A represents the faucetpipe, the general construction of which has no As shown, this pipe is made of two parts, c and b, connected together by a screw-thread at o.
B is a ball-valve located in a chamber, d, in the part b, which is provided with a cross-bar, e, to limit the movement of the ball in one direction.
C is a movable hollow tube or plunger, tita ting into the contracted end of the part a of the faucet, as shown in Figs. l and 2. The end of this part G which is toward the valvecha-mber is a continuous ring, m, and is adapted to receive a portion of the ball.
fare openings in the sides of this part C,
through which the water ows when t-he valve is open. y
lg is the valve-seat. D is a stem, having'an eccentric, 7l, upon its lower end for the purpose of opening the valvc.
ing the valve and permitting the water to liow through the openings j', thence through the tube C, to be discharged at the end ofthe faucet. In this position the action of the water upon the ballB will bring a portion of the ball into the end of the rest or ball-holder C, as shown in Fig. 1,and the pressure ofthe water upon the ball will hold itv in this position, and the ball will be prevented from moving about from side to sidein its chamber. When the stem D is turned back to the position shown in Fig. 2 the pressure of the water upon the ball will force the part O into the position shown in Fig. 2, bringing the ball again to its seat and closing the passage.
As shown in Figs. l and 2, the ball is not held permanentlyin the end of the rest C, but is only held there by the pressure of the water.
It desired, the ball-valve might be made substantially as shown in Fig. 8, in which the ball is provided with a neck, and the part 7c can be inserted into the end'of the ball-holder or-rest C and be there held permanently. In this case the end of the ball-holder or rest U is to have a continuous ring, m, as before, and the part kof the ball may be forced into such ring, or the ring may have two or more prongs, n, to catch over the neck ofthe ball.
There is no advantage in the modification described; indeed I prefer to use a ball-valve loose, as shown in Figs. 1 and 2, though the object of my invention would be accomplished bythe modification described and'in substantially the same manner as before.
There are some incidental advantages following from the described construction, am ong IOC) whichIwill mention thc following: The handle and stem can be turned around entirely without producing any strain or friction on the valve, because the valve-rest is not in any way connected with the stem D. When the water is shut olf in the ground it will not be necessary to turn the stem D in order to have air enter the faucet for the purpose of forcing the water out from the pipe, because when the wa ter is turned olf the pressure upon the ballvalve will be removed and the ball will be lifted away from its seat. I do not limit myself to the exact construction of the valve rest or holder shown in the drawings.
The water-passa ge forward of the openings f may he varied somewhat in form, especially for basin-faucets, retaining, however, the ring m.
The end of the stem D which is within the faucet serves the purpose of a stop to limit the movement of the part E when the valve is closed. In addition to this, the stop 'i maybe used as before stated. Y
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. In a faucet, the combination of the adjustable tubular plunger or valve-support and a ball-valve adapted to a seat inthe end of said plunger or support, substantially as described, whereby the ball-valve will be held away from the walls of the casing when liquid is flowing through the faucet, as and for the purposes set forth.
2. In a faucet, the combination of a sliding tubular plunger or valvesupport provided with lateral apertures for the passage of liquid, and a valve-seat in advance of said lateral apertures, with a ball-valve adapted to said valve-seat, substantially as described, whereby the valve will be held from the walls of the valve-chamber when liquid is flowing through the faucet, as and for the purposes set forth.
3. In a faucet, a movable rest or holder forI 'a ball-valve, provided with a continuous ring, m, forming a seat to receive the ball when the faucet is openand with openings f in the sides for the passage of water, substantially as and for the purposes specified. E JOHN H. JOHNSON. j
