VENT-BUNG AND FAUCET-PLUG.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 334,520, dated January 19, 1886.
Application filed June 26, 1885, Serial No. 169,804. (No model.)
To all whom, it may concern:
Beitknown that I, CHRISTOPHER G. DODGE, J r., of the city of Baltimore, in the county of Baltimore and State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in VentBungs and Faucet-Plugs, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improvedventbung and faucet-plug for beer and other kegs; and the invention consists of a vent-bung and faucet-plug composed of a threaded bushing having an inwardly-projecting beveled shoul der,a web resting on said shoulder,and a packing-ring that is driven into the bushing, so as to tightly retain the web on the shoulder of the bushing.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a vertical longitudinal section of a keg with my improved .Ventbung and faucetplug. Fig. 2 represents a vertical central section of the faucet-plug. Figs. 3 and 4 are a vertical central section and a top view of the vent-bung, and Fig. 5 shows a detail top view and a vertical central section of the web used in my vent-plugs.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
Referring to the drawings, A represents a bushing of cast metal, which is provided with an exterior shoulder, a, and an exterior screwthread, a, so as to be screwed into the bung or faucet hole of the keg. The bushing A is provided at its lower end with an inwardlyprojecting and beveled shoulder, b, on which rests a web,"B, of sheet metal, rubber, parchment, or other suitable water-proof material. The web B is preferably provided with two concentric creases,b, the inner crease being of a diameter equal to the vents in general use, while the diameter of the outer crease is equal to the diameter of the faucets in general use. The web B is retained in position on the shoulder a of the bushing A by a packing ring, 0, of wood, paper, or other suitable material, which packing-ring G is driven into the bushing until it rests on the web and holds the same rigidly in position, so as to tightly close the bung-hole or faucet-hole of the keg.
When it is desired to tap the keg, the
faucet is first inserted into the packing-ring G of the faucet plug and driven forcibly through the web, so that the circular portion of the same is cut through and driven inwardly by the force of the blow on the faucet. The vent is next driven into the vent-bung and the web of the same perforated in the same manner as the faucet. When closing the keg, after the same has been filled, the webs are first placedin position on the shoulders of the bushings of the vent-bung and;5o
faucet-holes, after which the packing-rings are firmly driven down on the web. The same device can be used for plugging the faucet as well as the bung-hole, the only difference being that the faucet-bushing requires a larger packing-ring than the bushing of the bung-hole, as shown, respectively, in Figs. 2 and 3.
By my improved vent-bungand faucet-plug the barrel can be quickly and conveniently tapped without forcing any part of the bung or plug into the keg, which is objectionable in cleaning the same. The portions of the webs which are forced out by the faucet or vent are not dropped into the keg, but retained at one side of the web, as shown in Fig. 1, so as to be removed from the keg with the webs when the faucet or vent is removed. Another advantage is, that the wooden plugs used as bungs and faucet-plugs are changed by the absorption, so as to frequently admit air, which cannot occur with my water-proof web, provided the packing is properly driven in.
The vent-bung and faucet-plug can be furnished at as low a price as the vent-bungs and faucet-plugs heretoforein use, and are more convenient and reliable for use, as any danger of splitting the vent-bung or faucet-plug when the vent or faucet is driven in is avoided.
Having thus described myinvention, Iclaim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent-- 1. The combination of an exteriorly-threaded bushing having an inwardly-projecting and beveled shoulder, a web resting on said shoulder, and a packing-ring driven into the bushing, so as to retain the web on said shoulder, substantially as set forth.
2. The combination of an cXteriorly-thread- In testimony that I claim the foregoing as ed bushing having an inwardly-projecting and my invention I have signed my name in presbeveled shoulder, a web resting on said shoulence of two subscribing witnesses.
