In restaurants in which ketchup bottles are used, it is usually the practice that the contents of bottles which are almost empty are transferred to another bottle having more ketchup. In many restaurants, this is done daily at the time of opening so that a supply of full bottles is available. If this task is simply done manually, it is an inconvenient, time consuming and messy operation. Apparatus has previously been suggested for simplifying this operation by supporting the bottles while draining. However, these prior art arrangements are constructed such that it is necessary to provide constant attention to the operation to prevent spillage when the receiving bottle is full.

In accordance with the present invention an improved transfer rack is provided wherein it is only necessary to position initially the bottles in the rack and then the rack can be left unattended because the flow of ketchup or similar viscous material, from the draining bottle is automatically interrupted when the receiving bottle is full. In accomplishing this the draining bottle is supported with its open lower end extending into a funnel in the upper open end of a receiving bottle. The lower open end of the draining bottle extends into the funnel below the upper rim of the funnel so that when the receiving bottle is filled and the ketchup in the funnel gets to the level where the lower end of the draining bottle is covered, air cannot enter the draining bottle and the flow of ketchup is interrupted.

In its preferred form, the rack includes a base having a plurality of sockets for receiving bottles to be filled. A column is centrally supported on the base and a bottle support member is removably mounted on the column. The bottle support member has a pair of arms extending outwardly from opposite sides of the column and each arm includes yoke means for supporting a pair of bottles in draining position at the proper distance above receiving bottles positioned in sockets in the base.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT For a more thorough explanation of the invention refer now to the following detailed description and drawings in which:

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the rack showing it in use;

FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view of a portion of the structure of FIG. 1 showing ketchup being drained from one bottle to another; and

FIG. 3 is an enlarged cross-sectional view of a portion of FIG. 2 showing the situation when the receiving bottle is full.

As can be seen, the rack of the invention includes a rectangular base having a plurality of circular sockets 12, each of which is sized to receive a ketchup bottle, such as that illustrated in one of the sockets at 14. A column 16 is attached to the base near its center between the four centermost sockets. As can be seen from FIGS. 1 and 2, the column has a rectangular cross-section which tapers from a smaller area at its upper end to a larger area at its lower end. A handle 16a is formed on its upper end.

A bottle support member 18 preferably molded as a single plastic unit, is removably mounted on the column 16. More specifically, the support member 18 includes a generally rectangular central collar 18a having an opening the same shape as the cross-section of the column. The size of the opening in the collar 18a is such that the support member can be easily slipped onto the upper end of the column but will interfere with the column at a desired point as indicated in FIGS. 1 and 2. Thus, the support member 18 is supported on the column, but yet is readily removable for cleaning and storage purposes.

The support member 18 has a pair of arms 18b and integral with and extending outwardly from the shorter sides of the central collar 18a. Each arm includes means forming a pair of spaces 19 for receiving a ketchup bottle to be drained. More specifically, each arm includes an inner plate 18d attached directly to the shorter sides of the central collar 18a. The upper edges of the inner plates have a pair of upwardly opening, semi-circular recesses 18e and 18]" which form yokes for receiving the necks of a pair of ketchup bottles to be drained. The supporting arms 18b and 18c further include an outer plate 18g spaced upwardly and outwardly from the inner plate. The upper edge of the outer plate 18g has a pair of upwardly opening, semicircular recesses 1811 and 18i forming yokes sized to re ceive the larger diameter portion of a pair of bottles near the closed end of the bottles. The recesses 18h and 18i are respectively axially aligned with the recesses 18e and 18f. The inner plate 18d and outer plate 18g are interconnected by a central strut l8j and two side struts 18k and 18l which extend at an angle of about 45 with respect to horizontal so that the inner plate 18d is lower than the outer plate 18g.

In use, the bottle 14 to be filled is positioned in one of the sockets 12 in the base 10, and the elongated lower end of a funnel 20 is placed in the open upper end of the receiving bottle 14. A bottle 22 to be drained is simply positioned in a pair of the yokes 18f and 18i of one of the arms 180 of the bottle support member 18 as shown in FIGS. 1 and 2. The bottle is supported at an angle to permit its contents to readily drain. For ketchup an angle of about 45 is preferable. The distance between the base 10 and the support member 18 is such that the open lower end of the draining bottle 22 extends into the mouth of the funnel 20 sufficiently far that the upper rim of the funnel is above the open end of the draining bottle. Note from FIG. 2 that the funnel is offset on one side rather than being circular so that the end of the draining bottle can be more easily received into the funnel.

With this arrangement the ketchup 24 from the draining bottle simply drains into the lower bottle by way of the funnel. When the bottle 14 becomes filled to the point slightly above the lower end of the funnel, the ketchup will essentially stop flowing or else greatly reduce flow out of the lower end of the funnel because of the viscosity of the ketchup and because the funnel restricts the escape of air from the receiving bottle 14. This condition is indicated in FIG. 3. Ketchup will continue to flow into the funnel 20 until ketchup is above the lower end of the draining bottle, also as indicated in FIG. 3. At that point, the flow from the draining bottle will be automatically interrupted since air can no longer enter the draining bottle 22. Consequently, the draining operation need not be attended. When a bottle is filled, the person handling the operation can easily move the draining bottle and the funnel to a position for draining into another partially empty bottle.

When a draining operation is complete, the bottle support member 18 can be easily removed for cleaning or storage, and the base can serve as a storage rack, or carrying rack while distributing the bottles. For this reason, the base 10 is formed with eight sockets even though the supporting member 18 shown can only support four bottles at one time.' Of course, the capacity of the rack can be constructed as desired, but the arrangement illustrated is a convenient size for most restaurant operations.
