TIIOMAS J. KIERNAN, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.
wATER-FAU'C EIT.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 612,947, dated October 25, 1898.
Application filed April l0J 1895. Serial No. 545,207. (No model.)
T0 @ZZ whom, it may concern:
Be it known that I, THOMAS J. KIERNAN, of Boston,in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tater-Faucets, of which the followingis a full, clear, and eX- act description.
This invention relates to improvements in water-faucets; and the invention consists, in substance, of a faucet comprising a valve-stem carrying two valves, one above the other, and seats for said valves, one of said seats being made of yielding or elastic material and shaped to lit within the faucet-chamber and retained therein by suitable shoulders, and a spring interposed between the upper valveseat and a shoulder on the stein, said spring normally acting. to force the valve-stem upward, all substantially `as hereinafter fully described, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in which the figure represents in central vertical section a water-faucet constructed in accordance with this invention.` In the drawing, A represents a water-faucet` adapted to be screwed at B into a mouth or other opening of a water-pipe C andhaving a nozzle D.
E is the valve, made of any suitable metal and preferably of conical shape. It is secured to the lower end of a spindle or rod F by a screw-nut G, which rod extends centrally upward through an opening I-I in a flange J and through an opening in a flange K and through opening L in a washer M, and at its upper end it is connected by a Slot N to a lever P, pivoted at Q to the inside of the faucet and extending outside through a vertical slot R in the side, having a handle S for operating the same.
T is the packing, made, preferably, of indiarubber and fitting in the lower end of the faucet, having a conical socket or opening U, corresponding to and forming a seat for the valve E, its upper or inner end extending centrally inwardly, making an inner projection or shoulderV for the end W of the valve to abut against, and its Outer end extending over the lower end of the faucet, as at Y, to form a packing between the end and a shoulder Z in the part to which it is secured.
Secured to the valve-stem F is an inverted cone a, which is adapted to lit a correspondingly-shaped seat b of the flange J when the valve is pushed down.
When the water is on, its pressure upon the lower end 0f the valve serves to keep it up to and close upon its seat, as shown in full lines in the ligure, making then the valve tight.v Y
. To insure the valve closing in case the pressure of the water should be lessened for any reason and not be sucient, a spiral spring cl is provided,which surrounds the spindle F and is arranged to bear between the ange K and a ila-nge e, secured to the spindle F, its tension pressing the valve u p; but as the closing of the valve depends more particularly upon the water-pressure this spring can be light.
To have the water ilow from the nozzle D of the faucet, press down the lever P, which forces down the valve4 E from its seat, as shown in `dotted lines,when the water can freely pass up through the opening between the valve and its seat and out at the outlet. In pressing down or opening the valve the upper cone a is pressed down to its seat ZJ, which closes its opening to the passage of watertherethrough into the chamber f above and out at the slot R. The upper end of the tube is closed by a cap g, arranged to be screwed thereon, as shown.
It is preferable to have the india-rubber forming the seat made somewhat soft to give a good yielding surface for the cone-valve to insure a tight joint thereat when closed.
Having thus described my inventiomwhat I claim is- In a faucet, in combination, a conicalshaped valve, a seat for the valve of indiarubber shaped interiorly to correspondingly fit the sides 'of the valve and exteriorly to fit the chamber of the faucet, a shoulder in the faucet-chamber against which the india-rubber seat rests, another shoulder in the faucetchamber above the first shoulder, a spindle to the valve extending upward in the faucetchamber, a valve on its upper end, a seatfor the valve in the chamber, a shoulder on the spindle, and a spring between and bearing against the shoulder on the spindle and the latter shoulder in the faucet-chamber.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
THOMAS J. KIERNAN. Vitnesses:
EDWIN W. BROWN, LEONA C. ARNO.
