BOTTLE OF THE NON-REFILLABLE CLASS.
$PECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 691,152, dated January 14, 1902. Application filed September 21, 1901- Serial No, 76,091- (No model.)
To all whom it may concern;
Be it known that I, SAMUEL LOVE, acitizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements in Bottles of the Non-Refillable Class, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in bottles of the nonrefillable class.
The salient feature of the invention is to provide a device which may be readily applied to and secured within the bottle-neck and shall by its presence prevent the bottle being refilled, although the contents of the bottle may at any time be obtained by pouring the same outof the bottle in the ordinary way.
The invention further aims to construct a device which may be readily applied to and secured within the neck of a bottle, which shall be extremely simple in its construction, strong, durable, efficientin its use, and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture; and to this end it consists of the novel combination and arrangementof parts hereinafter more specifically described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed outin theclaims hereunto appended.
In describing the invention in detail reference is bad to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, wherein like numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which- Figure 1 is a vertical sectional View ofa bottle with my improved device secured within the bottle-neck. Fig. 2 is a side elevation of my improved device, showing the same in position to be inserted in the bottle-neck, the latter shown in dotted lines. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of my improved device. Fig. 4: is a bottom plan view of the device with the vent-tube in section. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the weight for seating the valve. Fig. 6 is alike view of the valve. Fig. 7 is a similar View of a slotted sleeve provided with a flange to assist in preventing the entrance of tools to the bottle, as well as causing the unseating of the valve when the bottle is inverted; and Fig. 8 is a top plan view of the closure disk adapted to be secured to the top of the device.
Referring to the drawings by reference numerals, 1 denotes the body portion of the bottle, and 2 the bottleneck. Within the bottle-neck is secured myimproved device for preventing the refilling of the bottle; and the said device consists of an upper sleeve 3, which is closed at its top by means of the disk 4, provided with the perforations 5. The disk is further formed with a central perforation, the function of which will be hereinafter described. The lower end of the sleeve 3 is enlarged, as at 6, to form the inwardlyextending annular ridge 7and the outwardlyextending annular shoulder S. The sleeve 3 is formed of any suitable material and has the enlarged portion 6, formed Withacircular groove, in which is secured the upper end of the lower sleeve 9. This sleeve 9 may be constructed of any preferred material and has formed integral with its inner face, approximately centrally thereof, an inwardly-extending annular flange 10, and is further provided at its bottom with an inwardly-extending annular flange 11, which forms a valveseat. Depending downwardly from the bottom of the lower sleeve 9 is a pair of springactuated fastening-arms 12, each provided with a slot 13 and having its lower end enlarged, as at 14. The enlarged lower ends 14 of the fastening-arms 12 have each the inner face thereof formed with agroove 16 and the outer face with the lug 17.
The reference-numeral 18 denotes a venttube which extends centrally through the bottle-neok and depends into the body portion and carries on its lower end a valve-casing 10, provided with an outlet 20 and a stop 21 and in which operates the globular valve 22. The lower end of the vent-tube 18 communicates with the casing 19. The upper end of the vent-tube extends through and above the disk 4. If desirable, the vent tube may be made of two sections. Mounted upon the vent-tube above the flange 10 is a stop-disk 23, and loosely mounted upon the vent-tube below the disk 23 [is a weight 24 and a valve 25, the latter being normally in engagement with the valve-seat 11 and retained thereon by means of the weight 24. Mounted upon the vent-tube 18, below the valve-seat 11, is a sliding slotted tube 26, provided with an annular flange 27. The downward movement of this tube 26 is arrested by means of a disk 28, carried by the vent-tube.
The reference-numeral 29 denotes an operating-bar for the fasteningarms' 12. This bar is secured to the vent-tube below the sleeve 26 and has its sides formed at an inclination. The bar 29 is adapted to extend into the slots 13 of the fastening-arms before they are extended in their securing position, and the said bar, when the arms are in their securing position, is adapted to be seated in the recess 16, formed in the enlarged portion at the lower end of each of the arms.
The reference-numeral 30denotesaclosuredisk which is mounted upon the disk 4 and is provided with the outlet-openings 31,adapted to communicate withthe openings 5 in the disk 4. The disk 30 is formed with a centrally-arranged opening, in which extends the upper end of the vent-tube 18.
The reference-numeral 32 denotes a removable cap for the top of the bottle when not pouring the contents therefrom.
The reference-numeral 33 denotes a hollow stopper formed of cork or other elastic material,which is mounted around the upper sleeve 3 and has its lower end in engagement with the shoulder 8. This forms a seal between the upper sleeve 3 and the inner face of the bottle-neck and further assists in retaining falling off when the bottle is in an upright position.
The enlarged portion 7 assists in preventing the entrance of any tool or appliance to elevate the valve, so that liquids can be entered into the bottle. The flange 10, as well as the stop 23, also prevents theentrance of any tool or appliance. The same may be said of the valve-seat 11 and stop 27; These also prevent the tool or appliance from engaging with the bar 29 to elevate the same, so that the fastening-arms can be loosened and the device removed from the bottle-neck.
The device is set up in the following manner: Assuming that it is in position as shown in Fig. 2, it will be observed that the venttube 18 extends above the same and that the fastening-arms 12 are in their contracted position. The device, as shown in Fig. 2, is inserted in the bottle-neck. The stopper 33 being formed substantially wedge shaped arrests the downward movementof the device and prevents the same from entering the body portion of the bottle. When the device is inserted within the bottle-neck until the stopper 33 isjust a little below the top edge of the neck,the vent-tube is forced downwardly, carryin g the operating-bar 29 therewith, and the latter, riding in the groove 16 of the enlarged portion 17 of the fastening-arms, will expand the latter until they come into contact with the inner face of the bottle-neck, securly retaining the device within the neck. The upper end of the vent-tube is then secured to the disk 30 by soldering it thereto or otherwise, and the bottle is then in condition for use. It will be evident that the disk 30 is secured to the sleeve 3 in such a manner that it cannot be disengaged therefrom without injury to the various parts of the device. The bar 29 not only is adapted to operate the fastening-arms 12, but, in connection with the centrally-arranged aperture or opening of the disk at, retains the vent-tube centrally of the bottle-neck. The flange l0 and the flange 11,
forming the flange-seat, are of such width as to form suitable outlet-passages for the liquid when it is desired to discharge the same from the bottle through the device. It will be evident that when the device is secured in position as above set forth, and which is shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings, the Valve 25,which is substantially in the form of a truncated cone,'will engage the seat 11 and be retained thereon by means of the weight 24 bearing against the valve, although when the bottle is inverted to discharge the liquid therefrom the sleeve 26 will slide against the valve 25 and with the assistance of the liquid dislodge the valve, so that the contents of the bottle can be discharged therefrom. The disk 23 will arrest the outward movement of the weight 24, which in its turn will arrest the movement of the valve 25. Thelatter in turn will arrest the movement of the sleeve 26. It will be evident that when the bottle is brought to an upright position the weight 24 will cause the valve to engage the seat 11. It will also be evident that when an attempt is made to force liquid into the bottle the valve 25,which is a buoyant one, will be carried with the liquid against the seat and close the outlet formed by the flange 11, and the pressure of the liquid as it enters the bottle will retain the valve in its closed position.
It is thought the many advantages of my improved device, which is readily applied to bottles for preventing the refilling of the same, can be fully understood from the foregoing description, taken in connectionwith the accompanying drawings, and it will also be noted that minor changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of my invention.
