CHARLES AMMEN, OF NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA. DISPENSING APPARATUS.

To all whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES AMMEN, 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 Dispensing Apparatus, of which the following is a specification. v

This invention relates to dispensing apparatus, and has for its object to provide an improved apparatus of this character which is constructed for dispensing liquid soap, and is therefore especially adapted for use in public and semipublic toilets.

Further objects of the invention are to facilitate the manipulation of the device to obtain a charge of soap; to cut off the supply and thereby prevent waste of the soap when a charge is being dispensed, to automatically return the feed mechanism to its normal condition after the charge has been ejected, and to provide for conveniently varying the quantity of the charge without taking the apparatus apart.

With these and other objects in view the present invention consists in the combination Yand arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying. drawings, and particularly pointed out in the appended claims, it being understood that changes in the form, proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scopev of the claims without departing from the spirit. or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.

Inthe accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is aside elevation of a dispensing apparatus embodying the features of the present invention with the delivery mechanism in section. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the delivery mechanism in position to deliver a charge. Fig. 3 is a detail perspective view of the adjustable follower for varying the quantity of the charge. y

Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in each and everyv figure of the drawings.

The apparatus of the present invention includes a supply tank or receptacle 1 and a charge-casing 2 in communication therewith. The tank or receptacle 1 has a removable cover 3 to facilitate the filling of the tank with liquid soap or other material, and the bottom of the tank is pierced by a service-pipe 4, to which `is connected the inlet-pipe 5 of the charge- Speccation of Letters Patent.

.ed into the open end of the chamber.

Patented July 25, 1905.

casing 2 by means of a suitable coupling 6. The inlet pipe or passage 5 pierces the substantially cylindrical casing 2 about midway of its ends, and there is. an outlet spout or passage 7 depending from the bottom of the casing 2 in rear of the inlet 5.

Within the casing 2 there is a plunger 8, which has a working lit in the front portion of the casing and is provided at its front end with a stem 9, having an outer terminal nger-piece 10, there being a removable head or cap 11 preferably threaded upon .the front end of the casing and having a central opening 12 for the slidable reception of the stem 9. The plunger 8 is about half as long as the casing 2 and is limited in its outward movement by the cap or closure 11. A stud or pro- .jection 13 rises from the bottom of the casing 2 about midway of the ends of the plunger 8, and the latter is provided with a longitudinal groove or channel 14, in which the projection 13 is received, so as to guide the plunger and prevent rotation thereof. In the inner end of the plunger there is a chamber 15 of predetermined sizewhich intersects the inner extremity of the plunger and is pierced at diametrically opposite points by an inlet-opening 16 and an outlet-opening 17, the inlet-opening being normally in communication with the inlet-pipe 5, while the outlet-opening 17jis normally closed vby the bottom of the casing. The open end of the chamber 15 is normally closed by a closure-plug 18, which is preferably thread- A follower 19 has a Working fit in the chamber 15 and is carried by a stem 20, which has a threaded portion working in a threaded opening 21 in the closure-plug 18, the other end of the stem'having a head 22 working in an open-ended tubular guide 23, carried by a removable head or closure 24, preferably threaded upon the rear end of the casing. A helical spring 25 embraces the stem 2O and bears in opposite directions against the head or closure 24 and the closure-plug 18, which constitutes the inner or rear end wall of the plunger 8, whereby the latter is yieldably held at its outer limit.

In practice the tank 1 is filled with liquid soap or other material to be dispensed, whereby the chamber 15 will be lled with a single charge in readiness to be removed therefrom. By pressing inwardly upon the linger-piece 10 the plunger may be moved to the position shown in Fig. 2, so as to aline the outlet-openl ing 17 of the charge-chamber 15 with the outlet-spout 7, whereupon the charge will be dispensed through the spout 7 and only so much material as is contained in the chamber 15 will run out of the casing 2, for the reason that the supply is cut off from the tank 1 by the solid or imperforate portion of the plunger 8. Upon releasing the linger-piece 10 the spring 25, which has been compressed, will. automatically return the plunger to its normal position and a new charge will be received within the chamber 15, whereupon the apparatus is in readiness for another operation. It will now be understood that while a predetermined quantity of material can be dispensed at any one time a loss of material between operations is elfectually prevented. 1f a greater quantity of material is desired, the plunger may be manipulated a number of times until the required amount has been obtained. By reason of the fact that the follower 19 is normally fixed upon the plunger and the stem 2O moves therewith through the guides' there is no interference in the operation ofthe device by the member 20. rlhe amount of the charge may b e varied by varying the capacity of the chamber 15, and this is accomplished by shifting the follower 19 within the chamber to increase and diminish the length thereof. To facilitate this adjust-- ment of the follower, the stem E20 is accessible through the guide-tube 23, and its.head 22 is provided with a diametric groove or screw-driver seat 26, whereby the stern 2O may be conveniently rotated, so as to shift the threaded part thereof through the threaded opening 21 in the adjacent end 18 of the chamber 15. Y

To prevent leakage through the annular joint between the inner end of the plunger 8 and the casing, the rear end portion of the casing is enlarged so as to form an internal annular shoulder or seat 27 and the inner end of the plunger is enlarged to form an external annular flange 28, which engages the seat 27, the engaging faces of the seat 27 and the iiange 28 being inclined or tapered in order to accommodate themselves to wear, and thereby maintain a tight joint at this point to prevent leakage from the chamber 15 through the outlet 17 and the discharge-nozzle 7 Having fully described the invention, what is claimed is- 1. A dispensing device comprising a casing having an inlet and an outlet offset therefrom and also provided with an annular internal seat located between the inlet and the outlet, and a shiftable charge-chamber workingin the casing for alternate communication with the inlet and the outlet at opposite limits of the movement of the chamber, said chamber being provided with an external annular portion to normally engage the seat and form a tight annular joint between the charge-chamber and the casing.

2. A dispensing device comprising a casing having an internally-enlarged portion which is provided with an outlet, there being an inlet in the other portion of the casing, and a shiftable charge-chamber working in the casing for alternate communication with the inlet and the outlet at opposite limits of the movement of the chamber, said chamber being provided with an external annular flange to engage the annular shoulder between the inlet and outlet portions of the casing to form a tight annular joint at this point.

3. A dispensing device comprising a casing having an inlet and an outlet offset therefrom, a charge-chamber working in the casing for alternate communication with the inlet and outlet, one end of the casing being pierced by a tubular guide, a follower contained within the chamber, and a stem connected to the follower and working in the tubular guide with its outer end accessible in said guide for adjustably shifting the follower.
