RACK

Filed May 26, 1965 lNVENTOR )V/CK DOM/NOS EV W ATTOR NE Y United States Patent Filed May 26, 1965, Ser. No. 458,917 3 Claims. (Cl. 211-7 4) My invention relates generally to racks, and specifically to racks for holding bottles and similar receptacles while they drain.

It is an object of the invention to avoid waste by providing a rack for draining and collecting viscous materials.

It is another object of the invention to prevent waste of costly or viscous material by collecting them in a single container.

It is yet another object of the invention to provide a drain-rack that needs no attention, thereby saving time and avoiding a tedious attendance during draining.

These objects and advantages as well as other objects and advantages may be attained by the device shown by way of illustration in the drawing in which:

FIGURE 1 is a front elevational view of a drain-rack; and

FIGURE 2 is a perspective view of the base.

The emptying of bottles containing costly or viscous material can be both tedious and time consuming. It has been found that collecting such material can be carried out without tedium and without time-consuming attendance to the operation by the use of a rack.

Referring now to the drawings in detail, the rack 11 consists of a base 10, with a generally central cut-out area 12 defining a seat for a receptacle. The area 12 has attached to it on the bottom, a perforated floor 13 so that spilled material may drain out from the floor, and it can be easily flushed for cleaning. The floor may be attached to the base by screws 14, 14 or by some other suitable means.

At each side of the base 10, a pair of vertical side panels 15, 15 are attached. They may be attached to the base so that they extend slightly below the base 10, in order to maintain the base above the surface upon which the rack rests. At the top of the panels 15, 15, a pair of supports 16, 16 are attached, extending in a downward direction to ward each other, and defining surfaces upon which objects or bottles 17, 17 to be drained may be rested. Attached to the bottom of the supports 16, 16, there are a pair of positioning panels 18, 18 extending upwardly and inwardly toward each other, and attached together at their inner ends 19, 19. These panels 18, 18 are provided with passages dimensioned to receive the necks of bottles 17, 17 which are to be emptied, and their contents collected in another vessel 20, which stands in the area 12. To facilitate the collection of the drained material from the bottles 17, 17, a funnel 21 is inserted in the neck of the vessel 20. The area 12 accurately positions the vessel 20, centering it to place the funnel 21 in the correct position to receive the drainage from the bottles 17, 17. A back 22 is connected to the base 10, and side panels 15, 15, to enclose the rear of the rack. The supports 16, 16 are also attached to the back 22, as are the positioning panels 18, 18, in order that they may rigidly support draining objects such as the bottles 17, 17. The positioning panels 18, 18 and the supports 16, 16 are disposed at approximately to each other.

In use, the bottles 17, 17 to be drained are placed on the supports 16, 16 with their necks inserted through the passages 23, 23. A collector vessel 20 is placed in the area 12, and a funnel 21 is inserted into it. The viscous contents may now drain out without any attendants or supervision.

The foregoing description is intended as merely illustrative of an embodiment of the invention, for many changes may be made in the construction, selection and arrangement of the parts, all within the scope of the appended claims, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

What is claimed:

1. A rack comprising:

(a) a generally flat base;

(b) a pair of generally vertical side-panels attached at opposite sides of the base;

(c) a pair of supports each attached to one of the side panels and extending in an inward and downwar direction;

(d) a pair of positioning panels each attached to one of the supports and extending in an inward and upward direction with their ends in engagement, each panel having a passage therethrough dimensioned to receive the neck of a bottle to be drained;

(e) a cut-out area on the base dimensioned to receive a collector vessel.

2. A rack according to claim 1, and

(a) a back attached to the base, side-panels, supports,

and positioning panels.

3. A rack according to claim 2, and

(a) the supports and their corresponding positioning panels disposed at approximately 90 to each other.

No references cited.
