UNITED STATES PATENT FFICE.
JOHN A. KENDALL AN JULIUS B. 'KESTER, or CAMERON, MISSOURI.
SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 611,328, dated September 27, 1898. Application filed July 28, 1897. Serial No. 646,217. (No model.) i
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that we, JOHN A. KENDALL and JULIUS B. KESTER, citizens of the United States, residing at Cameron, in the county of Clinton and State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Oil Can and Pump, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to combined oil cans and pumps in which the pump forms a permanent attachment to the can and by means of which the oil or other fluid can be pumped from the can into lamps or other similar containers.
The object of the invention is to provide certain improvements in the construction of devices of this character, as'will be fully described hereinafter, and the novel features of which will be particularly pointed out in the claims. 1 a
In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of an oil can embodying our improvements. Fig. 2 is a vertical section. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section. Fig. 4 is a sectional detail. Fig. 5 isa side elevation of the pump, part of the oil-can being shown in section.
Similar reference-numerals indicate similar parts in the several figures.
1 indicates the oil-can, which may be of any desirable form and size and be made of any preferred kind of sheet metal. A circular depression 2 is formed in the top of the can, and the vertical wall 30f this depression is threaded to receive the threaded end of a cap 4. The bottom 5 of this depression is provided with a filling-aperture, which is closed by a screw-plug 6. p
7 indicates a rotary pump, the piston of which is operated bya shaft 8, which extends up through an opening in the bottom 5 above the top of the can and is provided with a crank-handle 9, by means of which it may be turned.
10 indicates a support for the pump, which is soldered or otherwise firmly secured to the bottom of the oil-can and to which the pump is firmly secured in any suitable manner. This support extends at one end beyond the pump and is provided with an upwardly-extending sleeve 11, for a purpose to be hereinafter referred to.
The inlet-opening of the pump is indicated thereto by solder or otherwise.
by 12 and the discharge-opening by 13, and,
as shown, both of these openings are locate at the top of the pump-casing.
14 is a tube or casing leading from the inlet-opening 12 down to the bottom of the oilcan. This casing is firmly secured to the pump-casing and is provided with notches or other similar openings 15 at its lower end for the admission of oil from the can. The pump-casing is tight, and as the inlet and outlet openings are located at the top of the casing the oil in the pump-casing cannot drain back into the can, even after the oil in the can is below the top of the pump. The pump is therefore constantly primed and in condition to force oil out through the discharge-opening as soon as the rotary piston begins to operate, and consequently no time will be wastedin getting the pump to operate; Another advantage arising from this construction is that practically the entire contents of the can may be pumped out.
16 is a casing with which the dischargeopening 13 communicates, and 17 is a vertical tube, closed at its lower end, which passes through the outer end of the casing and is provided with an opening 18 in its side for the admission of the oil from the pump. This tube is firmly secured to the casing 16, and its lower end fits snugly within the sleeve 11, while its upper end extends through an opening in the bottom 5 of the depressed portion of the top of the oil-can and is firmly secured The tube 17 therefore serves as a brace for the pump and assists it in withstanding the strain which is placed upon it by the pumping operation. The upper end of the tube 17 is flaring, as indicated at 19, and connects with the bottom of the depression 2, and this tube serves as a drain and a discharge.
20 indicates a tube which telescopes within the tube 17. The upper end of this tube is bent in semicircular form, as indicated at 21, in order to bring the discharge end'outside the can when necessary.
22 isa collar fitted over the tube 20 just below the bent portion 21, and the exterior surface of this collar is conical to fit into the flaring end 19 of the tube 17.
of the tube 20 is somewhat less than the in- The diameter terior diameter of the tube 17, and the lower end of the tube 20 is enlarged by any suitable means, as indicated at 23, in order to make a practically close joint with the interior of the tube 17 and the oil therefore Will be forced up through the tube 20 when the pump is in operation. In the event any oil should get past the enlarged lower end of the tube 23 into the annular chamber 24 between the two tubes, such oil will, when the annular chamber is full, be enabled to escape through openings 25 formed in the tube 17 near its upper end, and such oil will in this manner be returned to the oil-can.
After a quantity of oil has been drawn from the can and the tube 20 has been turned so as to bring its bent end or nozzle 21 over the depression 2 any drippings therefrom occasioned by moving the tube 20 downwardwill be received in the said depression 2 and pass therefrom into the upper portion of the tube 17 and into the tank through the openings 25 after the oil has reached the level of said openings. When the tube 20 has been moved downward to the proper point, the conical enlargement or collar 22 will close the flaring end of the tube 17 and prevent the escape of oil therefrom in the event of the cam being tilted.
The shaft 8 is provided with a collar 26 just above the bottom 5 of the depressed portion of the topof the can, andabell-shaped ferrule 27 fits over the shaft and the collar and engages the latter with its upper end. This ferrule is soldered to the bottom 5 and effectually prevents the escape of oil at this point during transportation of the can. The conical collar 22, fitting into the upper end of the tube 17, will also prevent the escape of any oil at this point.
When the tube 20 is in its lowest position, its bent end 21 will bewithin the depression 2 in the top of the can, and the crank-handle 9 will also be within it, and when the cap 4 is screwed into position the said parts will be entirely protected and hidden from view. It will be understood that changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of con struction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of this invention.
Having thus described the invention,what we claim is 1. In combination, a can having a depression in its top, a pump located within the can, a tube having connection at its lower end with the discharge-outlet of the pump and having its upper end flaring and connecting with the bottom portion of the said depression and provided in its sides with openings just below the flaring portion, and a second tube telescopically fitted within the dischargetube and having its upper end bent forming a discharge-nozzle and having an exterior conical enlargement to enter and close the flaring end of the discharge-tube, substantially as described.
2. The combination with an oil-can, of a rotary pump within the oil-can having its inlet and outlet openings at the upper end of its casing, a support interposed between the pump and the bottom of the can and secured to both, said support extending at one end beyond the pump, asleeve projecting up from said extension, a casing leading from the inlet-opening of the-pump to the bottomof the can, a casing extending laterally from the outlet-opening of the pump, a tube passing through the last-named casing and having an opening in its side communicating therewith, said tube being secured to the casing and having its lower end closed and fitted within the said sleeve, and its upper end flaring and secured in the top of the oil-can, a tube telescoping in the first-named tube and having its outer end bent, and a conical collar secured to the last-named tube and adapted to fit into the flaring end of the first-named tube, substantiallyas described.
1 In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our own we have hereto affixed our signatures in the presence of two witnesses.
