'PAT-ENT OFFICE.
FAUCET.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N o. 737,767, dated September 1, 1903.
Application filed October l5, 1901. Serial No. 78,749. (No model.)
To all whom t nto/.y concern:
Be it known that I, JOSEPH PIERRE PIGRE- NET, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Orleans, in the parish of Orleans and State of Louisiana, have invented a new and useful Faucet, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates generally to faucets, and more particularly to one adapted foruse in connection with demijohns and similar vessels.
The object of the invent-ion is to provide a faucet which shall automatically open an airvent the moment the valve is open; and another object is to provide for automatically closing the faucet the moment pressure is released from the operating handle or lever.
With these objects in view the invention consists in the peculiar construction of the various parts and their novel combination or arrangement, all of which will be fully described hereinafter and pointed out in the claims. i
In the drawings formingapartof this speci- ,fication, Figure l is a perspective View illustrating the practical application of my invention. Fig. 2 is avertical sectional view of the faucet arranged in .the neck of the demijohn. Fig. 3 is a section on the line 3 3 of Fig. 2. Fig. a is a section on the line 4 4 of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective showing the inner end of the plug.
Referring to the drawings, A indicates the deniijohn, in the neck A of which is inserted the inner reduced end B of the tube B of the faucet, a rubber packing-thimble O being interposed between the neck A! andthe shoulder and reduced portion of the tubular portion of the faucet. The head D of the faucet is screwed upon the tubular portion B, said head being bored out to receive the plug E, the outer end of said plug having the operating-handle E integral therewith, while the inner end is reduced and made polygonal in cross-section, as shown at E2. An arm or lever F is fastened upon this reduced end E2, the opposite end of said arm or lever being pivotally connected to a rod Gr, carrying the valve H at its lower end, said valve being adapted to set upon the annular shoulder or valve-seat I, produced adjacent to the lower end of the nozzle K, said nozzle being screwed upon the tubular extension L, depending from the tubular body portion B. A coil' spring M is arrangedbetween the end of the tubular extension L and top of the valve, said spring serving to normally project the valve downwardly and hold it firmly seated upon the shoulder I. An air-pipe N is arranged within the tubular portion of the faucet, extending to and beyond the liquid-receiving ports O, the forward end of the said pipe N being screwed in a bore P, which extends entirely through the head D, the purpose of said bore being to permit the free passage of air to and from the demijohn through the head and air-pipe, and the plug E has a transverse bore E3, which is adapted1 to be brought into alinement with the bore P and pipe N when the plug is so turned as to raise the arm orlever F and open the valve. A convolute spring R surrounds the outer end of the plug, one end being attached to the head, as shown at R', while the opposite end is connected to the handle, as shown at R2, the purpose of said spring being to assist the spring M in returning the valve and plug to their normal or closed positions.
In order to provide forthe operation of the faucet independent of the hand-wheel attached to the plug, I provide a depending bail S, the lower end of which extends a short distance below the end of the nozzle, one end of said bail being firmly attached to the plug E, while the other end is pivotally connected to a boss S' projecting laterally from the head of the faucet. By means of this bail I am enabled to hold the demijohn with one hand and the glass or receptacle in the other hand, and by pressing the said bail rearwardly with the said glass or receptacle the valve is opened and the liquid discharged directly into the glass or receptacle.
It will thus be seen that I provide a simple and efficient construction of faucet, one in which the operation is exceedingly quick, and one which will automatically close the valve and plug the moment pressure is relieved therefrom.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States, is
1. A faucet havinga tubular body portion, a cylindrical head and a depending nozzle at- IOO tached to the said body portion, an air-pipe arranged within the body portion and conlmunicating With a bore produced in the head, a plug having a transverse bore adapted to register with the bore in the head, and the air-pipe and a valve located in the nozzle, a stem connected thereto and a lever connecting the said stem and plug, substantially as shown and described.
2. In a faucet the combination with the tubular body portion, cylindrical head and depending' nozzle provided with a shoulder of the plug having a hand-Wheel integral therewith .and a spring surrounding the said plug, one end connected to the cylindrical head and the other to the hand-Wheel, a valve seated upon the shoulder in the nozzle, a stem connected thereto, a lever connecting the stem and plug and a spring surrounding the valve-stem and adapted to bear upon the valve, substantially as shown and described.
3. In a faucet the combination with the tubular body portion, of the cylindrical head,
the depending nozzle, said nozzle being attached to a dependent projection formed at one side of the tubular body portion, the air-pipe located in the tubular body portion and connected to the head, said pipe communicating with a bore passing through the said head, a plug having a bore therein arranged in the head and having a hand-'wheel at its outer end, a spring attached to the head and bearing upon the hand-Wheel, adepending bail rigidly connected to the plug, a valve arranged in the nozzle and seated upon a shoulder formed adjacent to the lowerend of said nozzle, a stem attached to said valve and a lever connecting the end of stem and the inner end of plug and a spring surrounding the valve-stem and bearing upon the valve, substantially as and for the purposes described.
JOSEPH PIERRE PIGRENET.
