MEASURING-CAN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 700,984, dated May 27, 1902.
Application filed September 30, 1901. Serial No. '76,99Z- (N mod lsigned to be used in delivering milk to customers.
The object of the invention is to facilitate the operation. of delivering the milk in measured quantities from the can containing the milk in bulk. This object I attain by the novel construction of the measuring-can hereinatter described and set forth in the'claims,
and as illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a can embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a vertical transverse section of the same. Fig. 3 is a horizontal transverse section on line X X in Fig. 2, and Figs. 4: and 5 are enlarged vertical sectional views illustrating more clearly the operation of the measuring devices.
C represents the body of the can, which is provided with a removable cover 0.
B denotes the bottom proper of the can, which bottom is a suitable distance above the base of the body 0 to accommodate directly under said bottom the measuring-compartments D D, disposed one above the other and attached to the bottom B, which is formed with an opening aoverthe upper compartmentD and with a rabbet a around said opening to serve as a seat for a removable cover I). The lower compartment D is also provided with a removable cover I), which constitutes the bottom of the upper compartmentD. The cover I) is supported upon a circumferential rim a projecting from the inner side of the shell which forms the walls of the two compartments D D. Suitable gaskets o c are placed on the seats of the covers I) b to prevent leakage thereat. The bottom 0 of the lowermost compartment is inclined to a discharge-opening d, from which is extended a discharge-spout d, protruding through the body 0. Each of the covers 6 b is provided with a disohargeport e in range with the opening (Z. Through these ports passes the valvestem f, which is extended through the top of the body 0 for the purpose hereinafter explained. To the lower end of the stem fis adj ustably attached a valve g, which controls the discharge through the opening at and spout d. Above this valve are two valves g and 9 attached to the stem f and spaced to open both ports e 6 when the valve g is in its closed position in the discharge-opening d, as shown in Fig. 2 ot' the drawings. Each of said valves is adjustably secured to the stem by means of lock nuts applied to the screwthreaded portion of the stem and sustaining the valve between them.- The uppermost valve 9 is a greater distance beneath the port e in the top of the compartment D than the valve g is beneath'the port 6 in the top of the compartment D. Said valves being all moved simultaneously by the valve-stem f causes the valves g and g to be carried in succession to their closed positions by the upward movement of said valve-stem, which at the same time removes the lowermost valve 9 from the discharge-openingd. A suitable spring 7L forces the stem f downward to automatically close the discharge-opening d.
To determine the positions of the aforesaid valves, I provide gages, one consisting of a notch t in the upper end portion of the stem f, engaging a projection 11 on the case 0 when the said stem is drawn up to raise the valve 9 from the discharge-opening d and set the valve g in its closed position in the port 6 in the top of the compartment D. The other gage consists of a shoulder j on the stem f, abutting against the lower endj of a vertical tube j which is attached to the upper part of the can and receives the stem f through it. WVhen the said stem is raised to this last-described position, the uppermost valve 9 closes the port 6 in the top of the compartment D and the lower valves g and 9 open, respectively, the port 6 in the top of the compartment D and the discharge-opening d in the bottom of said compartment, as shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings, and thus cause both of said compartments to be emptied through the spout d, while the inlet of milk to said compartments is closed.
The covers I) and b are retained on their seats by means of a spring-bar Z, resting on the under sides of projections Z on the inner sides of the can and bearing with its central portion on top of the cover I). Between the two covers is interposed a prop t, which may be attached to either the bottom or top of the compartment D and serves to hold the lower cover 1) on its seat.
To facilitate the operation of placing the covers I) and b in proper position on the two compartments, so as to cause the ports e c to be in range with each other, I employ suitable guides, preferably of the form of wires 0 and o, secured vertically in the side of the rabbet a and inner side of the upper compartment D, which wires engage notches in the edges of the covers I) b.
The two compartments D and D are provided with separate ventiducts n and n of different diameters. The larger duct, n, is attached to the cover I) and the smaller duct, n, rises from the cover b and passes telescopically through the duct n, with a space between them.
In usingthe described can in delivering milk to customers the person manipulating said can allows the discharge-opening d to be closed by the valve g while carrying the can to the place of delivery, as shown in Fig.- 2 of -the drawings. This causes both compartments D and D to be filled. WVhen he Wishes to furnish the customer a pint of milk, said manipulator draws up the stem f until the notch t engages the projection t". This causes the valve g .to close the port 6 in the top of the lowermost compartment D and lifts the valve g from the discharge-opening d, and thus allows the contents of the compartment D to be discharged through the spout d, as represented in Fig. 4 of the drawings. In case the customer desires a quart of milk the manipulator of the can draws the stem up until the shoulderj strikes the end j ofthe tube j This causes the valve 9 to close the port e in the top of the upper compartment D and lifts both of the lower valves g and g to allow the milk to pass from both compartments D and D to escape through the discharge-spout d.
It will be observed that the operation of cleaning the interior of the can is materially facilitated by the ability of removing therefrom the covers Z) Z) of the measuring-compartments D D, together with the ventiducts n n, and the valve-stem f, with the valves 9 g g and the spring h.
