HENRY e. SWEENEY, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ASSIGNOR TO FRANK e. KAMMERER, or CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
GLASS--RINSI NG DEVICE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 708,844, dated September 9, 1902. Application filed July is, 1901. are No. 68,138. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, HENRY G. SWEENEY, of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Glass-Rinsing Devices; and I do hereby declare that the following is afull,clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specifica tion.
This invention relates to a noveldevice for washing or rinsing drinkingglasses, and is adapted m ore especially for keepingclean and in proper condition drinking glasses for public fountains and like drinking-places.
The invention consists in thematters hereinafter set forth, and more particularly pointed out in the appended claims. a
In the drawings, Figure 1 is'a view, partially in elevation and partially in v erticalsection, of a device embodying my improvements and showing a drinking-glass in position to be cleaned thereby. Fig.2 is a plan viewof the device with the drinking-glass removed. Fig. 3 is an enlarged central vertical section of the device. Fig. 4 is a central vertical section of a modified form of the device; Fig. 5 is a central vertical section of still another modification.
First describing the construction shown 'in Figs. 1 to 3, inclusive, A designates as a whole an open-topped receptacle provided with an upwardly-opening annular groove or channel A, constructed to receive the lower margin of a drinking-glass, as shown in Fig. 1, and formed between inner and outer shells A A The inner shell is formed on or attached to a horizontal plate B, constituting the upper wall of a casing or shell B, located below and fitting inside the lower open end of the shell A Said casing or shell B is provided below said upper Wall E with a centrally-depressed diaphragm B between which and the wall B is formed a chamberB.
O designates a stand-pipe which passes upwardly through the diaghragm B and plate B and extends at its upperend through and above the central shell A Said pipe is provided in its part above said shell A with a plurality of discharge nozzles or spouts 0,
preferably arranged radially and downwardly inclined. The upper end of the pipe is closed and is provided immediately beneath its closed end with a pluralityof discharge-openings c. Said upper end wall of the standpipe is extended outwardly to form an annular deflecting-shield G which is curved downwardly at its margin to deflect downwardly the water issuing from the openings 0.
D designates a water-supply-pipe fitting which is connected with the stand-pipe by an elbow'D, said elbow being connected at its upper end by a suitable coupling with the lower end of the stand-pipe and at its lower end with a nipple d, which projects laterally from the fitting. Said fitting projects downwardly through a plate or board E, which may constitute the bottom of a tank or sink in which the device is located and which receives the overflow-water from the device. Said supply-pipe fitting is provided with an inwardlydirected annular flange d, constituting a valve-seat which is adapted for engagement by a reciprocating conical valveplug F, attached to a stern F. Said stem is extended upwardly from the valve, passes out of the fitting D, and is attached to or formed integral at its upper end with a stem F the upper end of which extends into the lower part of the glass-receiving groove or channel A. To the upper end of said stem is attached a horizontal disk f. Said stem is contained principally withina sleeve B extending between the diaphragm B and plate B, and which may, as shown, project upwardly into said glass-receiving groove A. Interposed between saiddiskf at the upper end of the stem F and the fitting D and surrounding the said stem is a spiral expansively-acting spring F which acts to hold the disk and stem elevated and the valve F in contact with its seat. Water is supplied to the fitting D below the valve under pressure, so that when the valve is depressed the Water passes upwardly through the stand-pipe and is discharged through thenozzles O and openings 0; The diskfon the stem F 'is so located with respect to the glass-receiving groove that the margin of the drinking-glass when said glass is placed over the upper end of the standpipe and with its margin in said groove comes into contact with the disk, and downward pressure on the glass acts to depress the disk and its stem and to open the valve and admit water to the interior of the glass in the manner shown in Fig. l. Desirably, also, a plurality of yielding supports are provided for the glass, which are disposed in circular order about the bottom of the glass-receiving groove and in the same horizontal plane with the disk f, as shown in Fig. 2. Said yielding supports each consist of a horizontal disk affixed to the upper end of a 1101- low post F, passing downwardly through the plate B, said post having sliding or telescopic engagement at its lower end with a vertical guide-stem F projecting upwardly from the diaphragm B F designates a spiral expansively-acting spring which is interposed between the diaphragm and the disk and acts to normally hold the disk at the upper limit of its movement. Said plunger and spring of each support are inclosed by a sleeve B extending upwardly from the diaphragm B The springs F F are made of sulficient strength to support the weight of the glass without yielding, and when downward pressure is applied to the glass it is forced down uniformly on all sides thereof and maintained in proper vertical position.
The shell A and plate 13 are provided with apertures a 19, through which water falling into the shells A A may pass to the chamber B. When water is admitted to the interior of the glass in the manner shown in Fig. 1, said water fills the chamber L and rises upwardly around the margin of the glass in the groove A. The jets of water issuing from the stand-pipe strike with considerable force against the inner surface of the glass and efiectively wash or rinse the same, while the water rising around the rim of the glass within the groove or channel A acts to rinse the marginal part of the glass.
In the construction shown in Figs. 1 to 3 the water after the rinsing operation returns through and escapes from the fitting D, the stand-pipe 0 being provided at its lower end just above the diaphragm B with openings 0, through which the waste water may pass from the chamber B into the stand-pipe. Said fitting for this purpose is provided with an open branch G, closed bya valve G, said valve engaging a seat formed on an inwardlyextending annular flange g in said branch. The stem G of the valve G is shown as attached to and movable with the stem F of the inlet-valve F, said stem G extending downwardly through the branch G and being apertured at its end to fit over the screwthreaded stem F. The valves F and G are so disposed with respect to each other that when one valve is opened the other valve is closed, and vice versa. In the operation of the device the glass is set into the groove A upon the yielding supports fand f therein. Downward pressure on the glass acts through the plunger F and valve-stem F to open the valve F, and the same movement of the parts actuated closes the valve G. Upon opening the valve F the water rises into the standpipe and issues therefrom in the manner shown in Fig. 1, the flow of the water continuing until the rim of the glass is submerged. Escape of water from the fitting D is prevented by the closing of the valve G. When pressure upon the glass is relieved, the valve F is closed by its spring F The valve G is by the same springopened. The waterin the device is therefore allowed to escape through the branch G. The device shown may afford a support for the drinking-glass when not in use, and when a person desires to use the glass a slight pressure thereon will be all that is required for cleaning the glass. In order to prevent water being forced upwardly through the fitting D around the plunger F at the time the valve F is open, the valve F is interposed between the chamber of said fitting and the opening at the upper end of the fitting through which the plunger passes. Said valve is affixed to the stem F and engages a seat (:1 in said fitting, through which the plunger passes.
In the modification shown in Fig. 4: the branch pipe G and valve-closure G are omitted, and the fittingJis provided with a-valveclosure K, attached to the stem K in the same position as the valve-closure F (shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3) and which acts against a downwardly-facing valve-seatj, while the titting is provided above the seatj with holes j, which constitute the drainage-discharge apertures of the fitting. In this construction the drainage-valve K will be open when the inlet-valve K is closed, and vice versa. The construction shown in Fig. 4 has the advantage of being more simple in construction than that shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3. The extension K of said valve-stem extends into the annular glass-receiving chamber and is provided with a disk and a spring K, corresponding to the spring F of the previouslydescribed construction.
In the construction shown in Fig. 5 the water is drawn off from the chamber B through a horizontal drain-pipe H, independent of the stand-pipe and supply-fitting L. Said drainpipe H is provided at its inner end with an upturned portion which communicates with the chamber B at one side of the stand-pipe M, as clearly shown in said Fig. 5. The outer end of said drain-pipe H, outside the supplyfitting L, is turned laterally to bring the end thereof in line with said fitting, as shown in Fig. 5, and is provided at its outer end and in its upper part with a drainage-opening in which is formed a valve-seat h. I designates a conical valve-plug adapted for engagement with said seat to close said pipe. Said valveplug is provided with an angular stem I, which is attached to the plunger N above the supply-fitting L, and the relation to the valve I is such with respect to the supply-valve N that the drainage-valve I is closed when the supply-valve N is opened, and vice versa. The stem N of the valve N is connected in alinement with the plunger N and is provided with a valve N which prevents the water passing upwardly through the upper end of the fitting when said valve engages its seat 1?, in the fitting and is adapted to be closed when the valve N is opened, and vice versa, these parts being similar to the corre sponding construction shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3. The extension or plunger N is provided at its upper end with a disk n and with an actuating-spring 01 said spring acting against the arms I to normally hold the stem N in its uppermost position and the valve N closed. The casing proper (shown in both Figs. 4L and 5) is like the same parts shown in Figs. lto 3, inclusive, and bears like reference-letters,
It will be obvious that other changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the spirit of my invention, and I do not wish to be limited to such details except as made the subject of specific claims.
