IMPROVEMENT IN BARRELS AND KEGS.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that we, E. JOHNSON, J r., and G. W. ANsLEY, of Cleveland, in the county of Cuyahoga and State of Ohio, have made new I andnseful Improvements in Barrels, Kegs, &c. the same being a new articleof manufacture; and we do hereby declare that the following is a complete description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making'part'of this specification,- in which- Figurel'is a side view. Fig."2isa transverse. section. Fig. 3 is a vertical section, and Fig. 4=is an enlarged section showing the manner of forming and securing the head.
Our invention relates to the formation of barrels and similar vessels of corrugated sheet metal, the corrugations being such that the ban el has the usual form of these vessels, the same being covered in whole or in part-with lags or staves and secured by hoops, to give strength to the several parts.
Our invention also relates to the formation of thehead and-the manner of securing the same to the body of the barrel.
In making this barrel we first cut a sheet of suitable metal (galvanized sheet-iron, for example) into the proper form and size for the body of the barrel.- Now, by the use of a pair of rollers or other means this sheet of metal is corrugated fromend to end, and producing by this operation the'swell or bulge of the barrel. This operation brings the two ends of the sheet together, the concavity ot" the inner surfacebeing'such that it cannot spread out like a flat sheet. The two edges are then united by soldering, or riveting and soldering. Theeorrugations at each end of the body of the barrel to about an inch in length are closed or folded upon each other, as shown at A in Figs. 3 and 4, and firmly hammered together, and then soldered. The'heads are formed each of a disk of sheet metal, the edge of which is formed into a circular groove, a section of which is shown at B in Figs. 3 and 4. One of these heads has a bung or tap hole near one edge, into which a metallic bung or faucet is subsequently introduced- This head is se-.
cured to the body of the barrel by inserting the end of the body into the circular groove .13 of the head, as clearly shown in Fig. 4, and
securing it by soldering upon the inside. By
inside by introducing asoldering-copper with a long handle through the bung-hole in the opposite head.
For the purpose of forming .a chine both for the protection of the head and for convenience of handling, we place upon each end of of the hoop G, to give additional strength/ These end hoops are furthersecured from com ing ofl bystraps of metal E, which run the whole length of the barrel, and are clasped over the hoop, as shown in Fig. 1.
In order to protect the body of the barrel from injury in handling or transportation, we cover the outside, in whole or in part, with .lags, as shown at F, Figs. 1 and 2. These lags are made of wood and fit loosely into the corrugations of the outside of the body of the barrel. They may extend over the middle third of the barrel, as seen'at F in Figs. 1 and 3, and secured by hoops G G; or they may extend the whole length, inflwhich case additional hoo'ps G G are required. In this mode of structure thelfolding down of the corrugations and subsequently solderingthem together for the distance of an inch, or thereabout, from the end, by presenting three thicknesses of metal, gives greatv strength to the structure, while at the same time a plainand even surface is p'resentedfor uniting the body to the heads.
That we claimas our improvement, and
