FREDERICK A. EMERICK, OF OSWEGO, NEV YORK, ASSIGNOR TO THE GREAT BEAR SPRING COMPANY, OF JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY.
DISPENSING DEVICE FOR WATER-COOLERS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 662,168, dated November 20, 1900.
Application filed July 28, 1900. Serial No, 25,068. (No model.)
Be it known that I, FREDERICK AEMERICK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Oswego, in the county of Oswego and State of New York, (with post-office address Oswego, New York,) have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dispensing Devices for Water-Coolers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a dispensing device for water-coolers, and particularly to coolers designed for receiving a bottle or demijohn containing the water.
The object of the invention is to provide means whereby the water may be drawn without opening the cooler or removing the cork of the bottle or demijohn, and therefore Without the necessity of removing the bottle or demijohn until it has been emptied. An attainment of this object avoids the necessity of lifting the bottle from the cooler every time a glass of water is desired, and therefore avoids the inconvenience of wetting ones hands in handling the bottle and also of dripping water from the bottle outside the cooler. I attain the object above specified and avoid said inconvenience by adapting a Siphon of special form and arrangement for drawing the water.
My invention therefore consists in the construction, combination, and arrangement of parts hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, which form a part of Vthis specification, Figure 1 represents in vertical central section a water-cooler for bottles or demijohns with my improvement attached. Fig. 2 is a plan view of said cooler and contents with the cover of the former removed.
3 indicates the cooling jacket or receptacle, which is provided with a cover et. 5 indicates a bottle or demijohn located therein, a perforated cell, as 6, being used to centerthe bottle or demijohn and to keep the ice from falling into the space occupied by the bottle when the same is removed, whereby a new one may be more readily inserted. The siphon consists of a tube, as 7, passed through the cork of the bottle and extended to the bottom thereof, as indicated, and a coil, as S, located in the space between the cell 6 and the wall of the cooler and terminating in a faucet, as 9. nected together by any suitable joint, either a section of rubber tube or a ground joint or union, as that indicated at lO. By means of this union the section 7 of the siphon may be readily separated from the coil 8, which is intended for permanent location within the cooler. After inserting the bottle in the cooler the cork thereof,together with the tube 7, is set in the neck of the bottle loosely until the union 10 is made tight with the coil, then the cork may be firmly seated.
It will be noted that the faucet is below the level of the inner end of the tube 7, as is necessary for siphon action. To start the Siphon in operation, the air may be exhausted therefrom through the faucet or water may be forced from the bottle through the siphon by means of air injected into the upper end of the bottle.
Air may be injected by means of a compres- Vsion-bulb 12, attached to the vent-tube 13, which passes through the cork into the upper end of the bottle. This bulb may be left attached to the vent-tube 13, since its valves will not obstruct the admission of air to the bottle as the water is drawn therefrom. Itis obvious that the compression-bulb might be utilized for placing a pressure upon the surface of the water in the bottle sufficient to force the water from the faucet 9 independently of the Siphon action.
The coil 8 is preferably made of block-tin,
The tubes 7 and 8 may be conthough it may be of any other suitable material, and said coil, instead of being located (against the wall of the cooler,as shown,where by a free space for ice is left between it and the bottle-cell, may be placed against said cell, or, indeed, it may take the place of the cell, its con volutions being placed suficiently close to one another to prevent the ice from falling into the bottle-space when the bottle is removed.
The jacket or receptacle of the cooler may have a different shape, and may be made of wood or other suitable non-conducting material, and may be provided with an elevated portion at the middle of its bottom for raising the bottle above the lower end of the si- IOO ployed within the jacket for elevating the bottle. Water resulting from melting ice used in the cooler may be drawn therefrom by means of a faucet, as 14C, located substantially as shown.
Various changes in the form and in the arrangement of parts may be made without departing from this invention.
I claim- A cooling and dispensing apparatus for liquids contained in bottles or demijohns, consisting in the combination with a coolingjacket having a bottle-support elevated above the bottom thereof,a bottle-cell mounted n pon said support in the center of the jacket, a bottle removably located within the cell, a venttube passing through the cork of the bottle, a compression; bulb attached to the 'venttubea second tube passing through said cork and extending to the bottom of the bottle, a cooling-coil located in the space between the said cell and the wall of the jacket and 6X- tending through said wall at a point below the bottom of the bottle, a faucet upon the protruded end of said coil, and a coupling or union between the inner end of said coil and the second tube whereby the two may be made continuous or uncoupled at will-for the purpose set forth.
Signed at Oswego, in the county of Oswego and State of New York, this 21st day of July, A. D. 1900.
