TAP FOR BEER OR OTHER KEGS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 619,978, dated February 21, 1899.
Application filed July 15, 1898. Serial No. 686 027. (N0 model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, HENRY MOOK, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, borough of Manhattan and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Taps for Beer or other Kegs, of which the following is a specification.
This invent-ion relates to a tap which is readily changeable from one beer or other keg to another and which insures a tight joint between the tap and the keg, so that all loss of liquid or gas is prevented and the pressure on the liquor necessary for drawing it is easily sustained.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 represents a side elevation of my improved tap for beer and other kegs, shown inserted into the bushing of the keg. Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse section. Fig. 3 is a top view of Fig. 1; and Fig.4 is a horizontal section on line 4 4, Fig. 2.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.
Referring to the drawings, A represents a tubular tap piece or barrel, which is provided at its upper end with diametrical bosses or enlargements A, which serve to reinforce the upper end and provide additional hammering-surface in driving the tap into the keg or barrel with' the hammer or mallet, thereby protecting the upper end of the tap from damage. The lower end a of the barrel A is made tapering, so as to be easily driven into the wooden closing-plug b of the faucet-hole. The wooden plug b is driven in the usual manner into the bushing B, that is screwed into the faucet-hole in the head of the barrel or keg. On the shank of the barrel-piece above the tapering lower end a is formed an exterior screw-thread d, on which turns a thumb-nut O, the lower surface of which is dished to conform to the convex upper surface of an independent metallic gasket-holder E, which is located below the thumb nut and provided with an inturned rim e, so as to firmly hold an elastic gasket D, the upper part (1 of which is adapted to engage said inturned rim. The upper end of the barrelpiece A is provided with an interior screwthread f, into which the usual discharge-pipe is screwed, that extends through the tap in the keg to near the bottom of the keg and by which connection is made with the pipes leading to the faucet of the bar-fixtures. The barrel-piece is provided with a laterally-extending and interiorly-threaded nipple g, by which connection is made with a source of compressed air or carbonic-acid gas by which the necessary pressure is exerted on the liquid in the keg for raising it to the faucet at the bar.
My improved tap is used in the following manner: The thumb-nut C is screwed upon the exterior screw-thread d of the barrel-piece. The lower tapering end of the tap is then inserted into the closing-plu g of the faucet-hole, soas to rest on the web of the same. A few quick blows are then given with a hammer or mallet on the upper end of the barrel-piece, so that the tapering lower end breaks the web away from the plug and drives it into the barrel or keg. The tapering end is simultaneously forced into the plug, so as to form a tight connection with the same. The thumb-nut is then turned by hand quickly in a downward direction on the exterior screw-thread d, so that the gasket D is firmly pressed against the face of the bushing and plugof the faucet-hole, so as to prevent any escape of gas or leakage in case the side portion of the plug should have been injured or cracked. After the tap is thus driven into the faucet-hole of the keg the discharge-pipe is inserted through the same and connection with the source of compressed air or carbonic-acid gas is made, after which the beer or other fermented liquor in the keg may be drawn off through the barfaucet.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A tap consisting of a tubular barrel having a tapered inner end adapted for insertion in a bushing, said barrel being provided with an exteriorly-screw-threaded shank, a nut applied to said screw-threaded shank, a gasketholder provided with an inturned flange disposed adjacent to said nut and adapted to slide on said barrel, and a recessed gasket disposed on said barrel and adapted to be tightly pressed against the bushing to which it may my invention I have signed m name in presadhere, said gasketbeing held by said inenee of two subscribing witnesses. turned flan e and carried thereby, whereby 7 r 7 its detachm ent from the bushing on the with- HENRX M001" 5 drawal of the tap and its retention on the tap W'itnesses:
for use again, are insured. PAUL GOEPEL,
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as M. HENRY VVURTZEL.
