Specification of etter's Patent;
applicati@ inea october es, ieee. serial no. 45am.
To all whom it may concern:
Be itlmown that I, TRQN Davis ofthe city, county, and vState of New Yor have invented a new and useful Improvement in Beer-Faucets, `of which thel following is a full, clear, and exact description.. f
My' invention relates to improvements in beer faucets, and the object of my invention is' to produce a simple faucet which can be very quickly taken apart orput together,
and whichL7 therefore is unusually cleanly, and further to produce a faucet of this char'- acter which enables the beer to lbe drawn without much foaming, andin which the faucet is self locking and adapted to con-l trol the beer perfectly.
My invention relates to im rover'nenfts` in .the type of beer faucet in w 'ch acharnbered head carries a ball valve' whicha is raisedby a finger operated by an exterior lever, so that the beer may iow past'the valve, and my invention improves t 'sy type of faucet and provides a simplermeans than has heretofore vbeen employed for guiding the ball, and also provides a very simple` means forremoving the washers and guide from the chambSer in which the ball valve is located.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specication, in which similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts in all the views.
Figure 1 is a broken side elevation of the l faucet embodyingl my invention. Fi 2 is 'delivers into a vertical head 11, having an' enlarged chamber 12 to receive the beer, and this chamber is closed by a' screw cap 13. ln some forms of valves this screw cap is made long and is hollowed out so that it can lentend down into the chamber and form a guide for the valve heretoforedescribed, but
this is one of the objectionable features which l seek to avoid, as it requires a great deal of metal and adds considerable to the expense of the faucet, while the improvement which l show renders the faucet cheaper and also makes it work better. *,'llhev beer4 is discharged from this chamber 12 through the reduced endA 14C of the head 11. The bottom of the chamber 12 forms aseat 1 5' on which is laced a gasket 16, preferably of rubber, an this is eld down and pre- -rae'entea Nev. le, ieee..
vented from sticking to the valve 19 by a metal washer 17, and the latter has a baillike skeleton guide 18 which extends upward and laterally so as to form a guide for vthe valve119. `lWhen the valve19 is lifted b y the inger20, as is usual in faucets of this character, .itffollowsup along the guide 18 and'is theeby prevented from dis lacement, and at the same time there is su cient friction on the ball to prevent it from spinning `to any great extent, as l have found that it is the spinning' of the ball which causes a good deal of the foaming in beer. rllhe rea son for this foaming in beer faucets is the :excessive agitation of the' beer whereby the 'gas isbroken up too fast, just as the agitation of any eervescent liquid will causethe eervescence to be increased, andthe ball valve if allowed to spin rapidly while the beer is being drawn, will cause this agitation, whereas in my .form vof faucet, the guide 18 which frictionally engages the valve while the liquid is running through the fau- -cet, prevents the spinning in a great measure and so the beer is drawn without excessive foaming. Y Thisfbail-like guide i8 enables the washer 17 and gasket '16 to be very easily removed, las lone can stick his finger into the chamber 12 after removing the cap 13, and simply lift the washer from its seat.
'lf desired this bail-like guide 18 may be duplicated` yas shown in Figs. 5 and 6 so as to extend in both directions from the washer 17, and so ide the valve whether it tips forward or ack.
The n er 20 which swin s in the lower portion 'o` the head 1l an lifts the ball valve, hasan enlarged base portion 2l which is fixed to the faceted end 23 of the journal 2e, so that lwhen the -journal is tilted the in yer will be 'also moved. I7lhe journal 2a an base 2l turn in an offset 22 on the head lll, and the journalhas a shoulder 24:EL which abuts with the outer end of said odset as shown best in'Fig. 4:. rlhe outer end of the jburnal is' integral with Lthe operating lever 25,' although obviously the two cancha separate if desired. llhisiftiperatmg lever has a widened ortion with a curved slot 26 theres i in (see igll) which movesover the stud lao ythe shoulder 24 of the 27 on the head 11, and the lever is pivoted as already described by means of the ournal 24. Thejournal and the recessed en 23 are longitudinally bored to receive the fastening, screw 29 which has a recessed end 30, screw threaded and fitting in a corresponding. socket in the head 11. It will be seen that there is no tension on the screw because the journal 24 and base 21 'of the linger 20 bear against a seat on the ,inner end part 21,while journal cap .abuts with a part of the head 11.
The o eration of the device is obvious. By tiltin t e lever 2'5 in one direction, the finger 20 an ball 19 a`re raised so as to permit theA beer to flow by, while by ti pin back the lever, the finger 20 is droppe an the pressure Aof the beer forces the ball valve firmly to its seat.
I am aware that faucets somewhat similar in general appearance to mine have been patented, but m improvement relatesatol details, and especially to the ball guide and accessories and to the mannerin which the operating lever is journaled. l
Having thus full described my invention-, I claim as new an desire `to secure by Let-Y ters Patent 1. A faucet comprisin a barrel havin a in theA s'aid chambered head, mechanism for liftin the valve, anda skeleton guide supporte adjacent to the valve seat and extending u ward so as to properlyy guide and frictional y engage the valve injts up and down movement.

' 2. A faucet having a barrelv portion, la chambered head an intake above the valve and discharge portion, a ball valve in the said chambered head, means for lifting the valve, and a bail-like guide "arranged adjacent to the valveseatand burvin ,upward and outward so as to guide and,v frictionally engage the valve in its up and.' down move#v ment.
4 3. A faucet of a general elbow shape, with a chamberedl vertically arranged head hav. ing a valve-seat in= the lower part thereof and vannu-take abovethe valve, va washerl on..
lifte the seat, a bail-like guidev secured to the washer and extending upward into the head, a ball valve -operatmg in and frictionally engaging the guide, and means for raising the ball valve.
4.' A faucet havin a horizontal barrel, a vertical chambered ead receiving the discharge from thebarrel and havin an outlet at the bottom, a cap to close sai chamber, a ball valve in the chamber below the intake, means for lifting the valve, and a washer supported on the valve-seat and havin an upwardl extending bail-likeguide w ich frictiona y en ages the ball-valve when the latter is lifte. l
5. In a faucet of thekind described, the
combination with the ball valve and its cas-` ing, of the handled journal of relatively large size extending well into the casing below the valve, said journal havinga -reduced inner portion to receive the valve finger, antinger on the reduced end of the 'ournal abutting with a shoulder on the journal and the valve casing and' adapted to swing up againstthe ball valve, and a fastenin screw extending through the journal and t readed to t a corresponding socket in the casing.
'6. In a faucet such as described, the comfbination with the chambered head having a valve-seat therein and an inltake above the, v valve-seat and a free ball-valve 'located on the seat between it and the in-take,'0f means within the chamber for guiding' and frictionally engaging the ball 'while it from lts seat.
7. A faucet having a eneralelbow shape with a chambered head aving a discharge at its lower end and anfin-take near the to a valve seat above the discharge of the hea a free ball-valve on said'seat, and an upwardly extending guide supported on the seat and servin to direct and frictionally enga e'the bal valve when the latter is 'THERON Davis; V Witnesses:
