FA'UC ET.
PECIFCATIGN forming part of Letters Patent No. 542,795, dated July. 16, V1895.
I Application filed March 8,1894. Serial 170.502.796. (o mo'lel.) y
To @ZZ whom, t may coi/werft:
Be it known that I, NATHANIEL S. CARY, of
Maple'ville, in the county of Providence and State of Rhode Island, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Faucets; and I hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification.
This invention has reference to improvements infaucets, and particularly relates to the spigotejoints thereof.
The object of the invention is to produce a simple and efcient faucet by means of which a barrel may be readily tapped without allowing the contents thereof to escape.
The object of the invention is also to produce a faucet in which the spigot-joint is furnished with a peculiar valve and a removable strainer located before the valve.
Another object is to so construct the spigot joints of faucets, particularly adapted for use in barrels and having valves, that the valve may be readily removed, leaving an unob-V structed passage, through which the interior ot' the barrel may be examined.
Theinvention consists in the peculiar bungsleeve, adaptedv to. be secured through a hole in the barrel, and the automatic valve contained within said sleeve.
The 'invention also consists in the novel spigot portion ofthe faucet, having the open end and the transverse perforations near the same to form a straining device.
The invention also consists in such other novel features ofconstruction, as will hereinafter be more fully described, and pointed out in the claim. v v
Figure 1 represents a view of the improved faucet. Fig. 2 represents a bottom view of the same, the valved bung-sleeve being in horizontal cross-section. Fig. 3 represents a vertical section of the spigot and valved bungsleeve. Fig. 4 is a similar view of the bungsleeve from which the spigot has been with- Fig. 5 represents an end view of the same. Y
Similar numbers of reference designate corresponding parts throughout the views.
In the drawings the bung-sleeve 6 is furnished with an outer screw-thread 7 and a ta.- pering-bore. 8, extending to the shoulder or valve-seat 9 at the inner end and having the sockets 10 10 at the outer'end. Extending Yfrom the bung-sleeve 6 is the valve-chamber 11, of a considerably-greater internal diameter than the inner end of the bore 8 and having an inwardly-curving end 12, the opening driven through the opening 13; but the forward movement of the ball is obstructed by the square shoulder 9. In practice it is found that the ball-valve may more readily be inserted in place by first wetting the ball.
The spigot 15 is furnished at the outer end with a head 16, having transverse arms 17 17. From the lower portion near the head extends the tubular member 18, which maybe secured to a pipe in any usual manner. The bore of this member joins the bore 19 of the main portion of the spigot, which, in turn, connects with the rear end thereof, the outer surface of this portion being tapered, as at 20, to cor-- respond with the taper of the bore 8 of the bung-sleeve. About midway of this tapering portion an annular recess 21 is formed in the wall of the spigot, in which the elastic packhole is firstl bored through the barrel-head of a diameter to allow the screwing in of the bungsleeve, this vbeing done by atool fitting into the recesses 10 10 to turn the sleeve, the ball-valve being inserted either before or after this operation. The barrel now being filled with-liquid, whether under pressure or not, the ball-valve will be carried by the liquid into contact with the valve-seat formed by the shoulder 9, effectually closing the outlet; but, if desired, a stopper may be inserted in the open end of the bung-sleeve, and in this condition the barrel is shipped.
When the barrel is to be tapped the stop- IOO per is removed from the end of the bungsleeve, if one has been used, and the tapering end of the spigot is inserted in the bore of the bung-sleeve, being driven home by a slight blow. The bail-valve 14 when struck by the open end of the spigot will be moved backward from the shoulder 9, but resting against the open end of the spigot, the liquid then being free to pass through the perforations 23 and out through the bore of the spigot, its fiow being governed by a faucet in the pipe connected with lthe member 18.
On the return of the empty barrel it often becomes necessary to examine its interior. 'lo secure a View thereof through the bungsieeve a rod or tool is inserted through the bore of the bung-sieeve and the bail pushed through the opening 13, leaving an unobstructed opening into the barrel. When the barrel is Washed out the bali-valve may be rolled out of the bung-hole in one of the barrel-Steves and reinserted in the chamber 11, as above described.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The combination with the screw-threaded sleeve 6 having the tapering-bore 8, the vaiveseat 9, and thevaIVe-Chamber 11 furnished with the contracted opening 13, and the ballvaive 14 contained within the chamber, of the spigot 15 having the bore 19, the tubulairnember 18 connecting therewith, the tapering portion 20 extending beyond the valve seat 9 and furnished with the packing 22 and per forations 23, as described.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.
NATHANEL S. CARY.
