I UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE I JOHN DEASEY, OF FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS, ASSIGNOIQBY DIRECT AND MESNE ASSIGNMENTS TO, HENRY OGDEN, OF SAME PLACE.
BEER-FAUCET.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 374,781, dated December 13, 1887.
Application filed July 29. 1886.
T0 aZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, J OHN DEASEY, of Fall River, county of Bristol, State of Massachusetts,' have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Faucets for Drawing Beer and other Liquors from Kegs or Oasks, of which the following is a specification, taken in connection with the drawings accompanying and forming a part hereof, in which Figure 1 is a lengthwise section'of my improved faucet. Fig. 2 is a side view showing the method of inserting it in the keg. Fig. 3 is a section on dotted line, Fig. 1.
The object of my invention is the construction of asimple and efficient form of faucet which may be inserted in a keg or cask containing beer or other liquor under pressure without danger of losing any portion of the liquor, and with safety.
I will describe my invention, having reference to the drawings. I
The body or barrel A A of the faucet may be of any suitable material or design, and is provided with an opening, X, lengthwise thereof, through which the liquor may flow. The outerend of the faucet is preferably provided with a suitable nozzle, throughwhich there is an outlet opening, X, for the discharge of the liquor.
D is a plug, having conical sides provided with screw-threads, which enable it to be screwed tightly into the hole in the keg when the bung or plug has been driven part way in. The outer end of the plug D is squared, as shown at m, Figs. 1 and 3, to receivea wrench for the purpose of screwing the plug D into the hole in the cask. A hole is made through the plug 1), into which the part A of the barrel of the faucet will fit tightly, and yet allow this part of the barrel to he slid or driven through the plug. The squared portion of the plug at the outer end is bored out to form a socket, n, which is provided with threads and adapted to receive the enlargement B of the barrel, thus forming, with the aid of the washer t, fitting against ashoulder at the rear of the threaded portion of the said enlargement, a tight joint when the part B is screwed into the socket n. The innerend of the barrel of the faucet is provided with perforations, as at p, to admit the liquor from the cask into entering it.
Serial no. 209,405. (No model.)
the interior of the faucet, and a cap, a, preferably of smooth metal and slightly larger in diameter than the end of the faucet-barrel, is secured thereto. This cap closes the end of the barrel and protects it when it comes in contact with the bung or plug of the keg in driving in the',bung. The cap a,being oflarger diameter than the end of the faucet, keeps the plug D from sliding off, and is also useful in preventing the bung or plug of the keg from sticking to the end of the faucet when the, faucet comes in contact with the bung and is driven against it. In forcing the bung into the keg the end of a faucet which is unprotected sinks into the bung, which thus stops up the faucet and prevents the liquor from This difficulty I overcome, as will be obvious, by the use of the smooth cap a and the perforationsp near the inner end of the faucet.
The outer end of the barrel of the faucet I leave free, and make it sufficiently strong to receive the blows of the mallet in sliding the part A of the faucet-barrel through the screwplug D when inserting the faucet in a keg. Near the outer end of the faucet, and prefer ably at right angles to its barrel A A and directly opposite the mouth of the outlet-opening X, I provide a boss, 1', which is bored and threaded to receive the nipple h, which forms a packing for the screw valve-stem b, which is inserted therein. The inner end of this valve-stem. is provided with a washer, d, of leather or other suitable material, secured thereto, which, when the stem 1) is screwed in, is forced down on the seat around the outletopening X, closing the outlet and preventing the flow of liquor from the faucet.
At the upper or outer end of the valve-stem b, I provide a washer, f, encircling the stem, and adapted, when the valve is closed, to seal the opening around the valve-stem Z) and prevent the escape of the. liquor in the faucet. The upper end of the stem is provided with a suitable cross-piece or milled head, V, for .opening or closing the valve with the fingers. The boss r may be strengthened, as shown, so as to resist compression under the blows of the mallet delivered on the end of the faucet, as compression at this point would prevent the working of the valve.
cet, or any suitable implement, until it is nearly clear of the keg, as shown. The faucet,
with the screw-plug D slid to its inner end,
(see Fig. 2,) is then inserted in the hole in the cask, and the plug D is screwed into the hole until it is firmly secured. A blow of the mallet delivered at the outer end of the faucet then drives the plug E clear of the keg and slides the faucet inwardly until the part B is in contact with the socket n. The faucet is then turned until the part B is screwed down into its socket, when the faucet is ready for use.
The part B, which is shown threaded, may be made slightly conical and without screwthreads, and the socket n also made smooth and correspondingly shaped, in which case the part B may be driven home into its socket by the mallet. If thus constructed, the part B should fit the socket n tightly.
The annular grooves a", Fig. 1, are for the purpose of receiving a packing of thread or similar material in case the part A or the hole in the plug D should become worn.
What I claim is- 1. In a faucet, the combination, with the conical threaded plug D, having a squared portion, m, provided with a socket, n, of the faucet body or barrel fitting snugly in said plug, but adapted to slide therein, and having an enlargement fitting the said socket, and also the cap a, of larger diameter than the sliding portion of the faucet-barrel, substantially as set forth. a
2. A. faucet consisting of the conical threaded plug D, having a squared portion, m, provided with a socket, n, and the body or barrel A A, a portion of which is fitted to slide in said plug, the said body or barrel having the shouldered enlargement B, the cap a at its inner end,and at its outer end a right-angular valve consisting of the externally and internally threaded nipple h, and the threaded stem b tapped in said nipple, said stem having the washers d andf and the turning head or handle V, all constructed and arranged substantially as shown and described. 7
