WILLIAM A. BABGOCK, 0F 'sourncovnntrnv, CONNECTICUT, .eissrenon' TO Bisnor & BABGOCK, OF OLEVELAND,OHIO.
YF u c ET,
' srnorrxcn'rron forming part of Letters Patent Nd. eetga'z, dated October 23, 1883.
Application filed April 19, 1883. (No model.)
To an whom it mag concern: Be it known that I, WILLIAM A. BABCOCK is a specification.
My invent on applies more especially to} faucets for the dispensing of beer or'other beverages kept on draft in bars or similar; places; and thechief object of my improve} ment is to keep the liquid in the faucet free from any inetallic taint or flavor, andalso to preserve it in a cool condition, ready to be dis charged into the next glass in a perfectly palatable state. i
. To "these ends the chief features of my inl vention lie in constructing the faucet with a tin-lined fluid-passage, and with an insulatcet.
, line y 1:
ing-chambcr around said passage, provided with a non-conducting packing; also, in a partition or septum in the discharge-nozzle of the faucet, to prevent a foaming emission of the liquor, and cause it to discharge in a nearly solid or pellucid stream, as hereinafter fully set forth.
In the drawings annexed, Figure 1 presents a longitudinal elevationof my improved fau Fig. 2-is a longitudinal section thereof on a larger scale. line a m of Fig. 2, and Fig. 4 a cross-section on As shown in Fig. 1, the faucet presents, eX- teriorly, the appearance of an ordinary beerfz'iucet that is, the shell or body cc of the faucet is of the usual long cylindrical shape,
with a base-flauge, Z1, at about the middle thereof.
The shell in frontof the-base-flange is formed with the usual tapering socket, '0, in
I whichthe rotary conical valve-plug d isfitted,
and this end of the shell terminates with the usual downwardly turned discharge-nozzle, c. The she lin the rear of the flange b isthreaded,
forming along screw-neck, a, on which the clampingnut f turns, by which the faucet may be held in place on the wall of the beer-fountain or other support in the usual manner, as will beunderstood, while the end of the screwneckis adapted to be coupled by the usual screw-coupling and tin pipewith the beer-- Fig. 3 is a cross-section on P EN F E- kegs or other reservoirs of the liquid which it f is intended to dispense.
, Referring to Fig. 2, I prefer to form theshell ofthe faucet of brass, cast in about the usual thickness; but it, will be noted that the diameter of the shell in rear of the'plug-socket c is toform a large internal cavity or chamber.
Now, through the center'of this cavity is inserted a tin tube, '9, whose length is equal to the length of the cavity, and whose internal-diaineter is about equal to the liquid passage or cavity of the ordinary faucet, and the fore end of this tube is slightly flattened and inserted in the oval opening h in the wall of the plugsocket c, which registers. with the usual oval opening through the valve-plug d, as seen in a water-tight joint at the opening It, aswill be The annular cavity around the] tube g, between the same and the shell to a of understood.
the faucet, (see Figs. 2 and 4,) is then filled Figs. 1 and 3, and is there soldered, forming up with some non-conductor of heat--for instance, asbestus, charcoal, or other equivalent,
material as indicated at k, and the rear end of this annular cavity is then closed by solder ing a tin ring or washer, a, between or over the end of the tin tube g and the end of the said chamber it, It will therefore be seen, that by this construction the liquid-passage of the faucet has a tin lining, so that the li quid which remains in the faucet after the valveplug is closed is kept out of contact with the brass shell of the faucet, and is hence preserved from any 'deleterious action, so that this beer may be drawn from the faucet into the next glasswithout possessing any metallic taint or flavor:
9 In addition to this it will-be noted J that'the non-conducting packing around the fiuid passage keeps the quantity of beer in the faueet'in a cool state, so that this beer maybe drawn intothe next glass in a pleasant condi tionfor drinking without appcariug' stale or a warm to the taste, as would otherwise happen.
, I In some cases the non-conducting cavity and 55 much-greater than in the common faucet, so as packing might be dispensed with, and the tin lining arranged in direct contact with the brass shell; but the combined use of the two feav but the latter is considered best.
tures described is greatly preferred.
In some cases the valve-plug d may be made hollow, so as to form the discharge-nozzle, opening at the lower end of the plug in the well-known manner, as will be understood; but in the faucet illustrated the discharge-noz zle is on the end of the shell, as shown best in Fig. 2. In either case I prefer to provide the discharge-nozzle with a septum or partition, m, which is preferably a thin plate of tin extending, by preference, diametrically across the nozzle and projecting up into the nozzlesome slight distance, as illustrated, and there soldered. llhis septum may, however, be cast in the nozzle, and it may extend from one side only of the nozzle, partly across its bore, toward the other side,instead of extending fully across from side to side, and two'or more septums may be used at different radial positions, instead of the single diametrical one shown; This septum serves to arrest the surging action of the stream of beer in rushing from the port in the Valve-plug through the nozzle, and causes the stream to pass from the nozzle into the glass in a steady pellucid flow, thus preventing undue foaming, and enabling the glass or other receptacle to be filled properly and quickly with a correct amount of clear liquid.
For purposes where it is desired to keep the liquid in the faucet cool,but not to preserve it from any metallic flavor, the'pipe 9 may be constructed of any desired metal or other material. In some cases the pipe g might be made of hard rubber, celluloid, or porcelain.
In some cases the asbestus or other packing in the chamber k might be dispensed with,
leaving the air in said chamber to act as the non-eonducting envelope to the tube 9.
\Vhat I claim is 1. The combinatiomwith the shell of a brass faucet, of the internal tube, g, of tin soldered or tightly joined to the brass shell at the Valveport h, and extending through said shell to the rear or coupling end thereof, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
2. In a faucet, the combination, with the external shell, of the internal tube, 9, making a tight joint with said shell at the points h and i with the non-conducting chamber is between" saidshell and tube, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.
3. In a faucet, the combination, with the external shell, of the internal tube, 9, and the insulating-packing k surrounding the same, substantially as and for the purposeset forth. 4. The combination, in a faucet adapted for effervescent liquids, with a rotary slotted valve-plug and a discharge-nozzle leading from the slot of the plug, of a septum or partition, on, placed across the bore of the nozzle between its mouth and the slot of the plug, substantially as and for the purpose set forth XVILLIAM A. BABOOOK.
