UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CHARLES STOLLBERG, OF TOLEDO, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN CAN COMPANY, OFNEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.
SHEET-STEEL KEG FOR WHITE LEAD.
No. 878,576. I
Specification of- Letters Patent. Application filed November 21.1906- Serial No. 344.419;
Patented Feb. 11, 1908.
Ohio, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Sheet-Steel Kegs for White Lead, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in sheet metal or steel kegs or vessels for holding, handling and shipping white lead or other extremely heavy materials in packages or units of 25, 50 or 100 pounds, or the like.
The object of my invention is to provide a sheet metal keg of a si1nple,-efficient, strong and durable construction, capable of being cheaply manufactured and which, when filled with white lead or other heavy material, may be safely handled in the usual manner without danger of leakage or breakage, or of loosening or springing off the cover in case the heavy package should, in falling from a height strike upon its side, edge or corner.
My invention consists in the means I employ to practically accomplish this object or result, as herein shown or described and more particularly specified in the claims.
In the accompanying drawing, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a sheet steel keg for white lead embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a central vertical section. Fig. 3 is a top or plan view. .Fig. 4 is a detail side elevation, showing the bail ear and cover-holding clip, and Fig. 5 is a detail cross section on line 5-5 of Fig. 4:.
In my improved sheet metal keg the body of the vessel is composed of two seamless bilged or barrel-shaped body. sections A and B, drawn or pressed to the required shape, the lower section, A, having an integral bottom a, and the upper section, B, having an inwardly and downwardly turned curved flange b forming an annular friction seat wall for the cover D. And the two body sections A B have at their meeting ends, external or outwardly. projecting annular flanges 0, b folded together into an external lock seam a uniting the two sections at the middle of the body of the barrel-shaped keg or vessel, the folded seam a uniting the two sections also constituting an external annular strengthening rib to strengthen and stiffen the vessel at its median line. To further reinforce, strengthen and stiffen the flat integral botbrace and further support the lower end of the lower section A of the body, it, is provided with a supplemental bracing and supporting disk C, engaged and held in place at its peripheryby an annular bead or enlargement (1 at the lower end of the lower section A. The cover D has a deep countersink D therein, forming an annular inside fitting friction seat wall or flange d, snugly fitting and engaging the annular depending flange b surrounding the central opening B in the upper end of the upper section B. The cover D also has an outer parallel annular flange d surrounding and embracing the upper end of the upper section, and snugly fitting the same.
The inner and outer flanges (1 d being united by a curved flange (Z and together forming an annular channel, U-shaped in cross section, snugly embracing, inside and out, the upper end of the upper section with its inwardly and downwardly curved flange, which flange gives such upper end of the upper section a corresponding inverted U- shape in cross section. The tight wedging fit cover thus serves not only as a closure for the open mouth of the vessel, but also as an internal brace and as an external band or hoop to brace and bind, stiffen and strengthen the upper end of the upper body section. To hold the cover in its snug tight braceacting and stiffening engagement with the upper end of the body section, and to prevent danger of the cover loosening or springing off when the vessel is subjected at any part to a heavy blow, the body is provided with cover holding clips F F secured thereto by rivets f and which are hammered or clenched down over the upwardly projecting annular rim of the cover formed by its inner and outer annular flanges d al The upper section of the body is preferably provided with external circular recesses or shoulders I) to receive the lower ends f of the clips F, and thus afford additional strength and security to the attachment of the clips with the. body. The bail ears G have circular heads or lower ends 9 also partially fitting in these recesses of the body, and these bail ears are also furnished with longitudinally extending recesses g stamped therein to fit and partially receive the lower ends of the cover holding clips F. The rivets f extend through the cover holding clips and the bail ears G, so that tom head a of the vessel,andto internally the same rivet serves to attach both parts to the body. H is the bail, preferably of wire, and having loops or eyes h which are inserted through suitable holes g in the bail ears.
I claim:
1. A sheet steel or metal keg for white lead, comprising two bilged or barrel-shaped seamless sections, having outwardly proj ecting external annular flanges at their meeting ends, folded together into a'seam uniting the two sections, the lower section having an integral bottom, the upper section being furnished at its upper end with an inwardly and downwardly curved flange or roll, a cover having inner and. outer parallel flanges tightly fitting and embracing the flanged upper end of the upper section, a pair of cover holding clips, a pair of bail ears fitting over said clips, rivets extending through the bail ears and clips for securing the same to the upper body section, saidbodyhaving external recesses therein to receive the lower ends of the bail ears and clips, and the bail ears having longitudinal recesses fitting and embracing the lower ends of the clips, substantially as specified.
2. A sheet metal keg having a body provided at its upper or mouth end with an inwardly and downwardly curved flange or roll, a cover having the inner and outer parallel flanges tightly fitting and embracing the flanged upper end of said body, a pair of cover holding chps, a pair of bail ears fitting over said clips and rivets extending through the bail ears and clips for securing the same to the body, said body having external recesses therein to receive the lower ends of the bail ears and clips, and the bail ears havinglongitudinal recesses fitting and embracing the lower ends of the clips, substantially as specified.
