Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed March 5, 1909.
. Patented Dec. 14, 1909. Serial No. 481,504.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, TOM A. HAsEK, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Cleveland, in the county of Ouyahoga and State of Ohio, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Faucets or Valve Devices for Washbasins and the Like; and I hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to improvements in faucets or valve devices for wash -basins,
sinks and the like, and it pertains more especially to the type of faucet or valve-device having a piston-valve controlling the pas sage of water through the body of the faucet.
The primary object of this invention is to construct a faucet or valve-device of the character indicated in which the component parts are compactly assembled, and which is exceedingly simple and durable in construction and reliable in its operation and not liable to get out of order.
With this object in view, and to the end of realizing any other advantages hereinafter appearing, this invention consists in certain features of construction, and combinations of parts, hereinafter described, pointed out in the claims, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings.
In the said drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation, mostly in central section, of a faucet or valve-device embodying my invention, and in this figure the piston-valve of the valvedevice is shown in its fully closed position. Fig. 2 is a side elevation, mostly in central section, showing the piston-valve in its fully open position. Figs. 3 and 4 are horizontal sections on line 3-3 and line 44, respectively, Fig. 1, looking downwardly.
Referring to the drawings, A indicates the body of the valvecasing of my improved faucet or valve-device. The body A is arranged in a substantially horizontal plane and provided with a correspondingly an ranged Water-receiving passageway 10 and discharge-spout 12 which are arranged at opposite ends respectively of the body. The passageway 10 is adapted to communicate with a pipe (not shown) for supplying water under pressure, to which pipe my im proved faucet or valve-device is to be attached in any approved manner.
A substantially vertically arranged cylindrical chamber 13 is formed centrally of the body A and has its lower portion formed 0 by and within the said body between the passageway 10 and the spout 12, and the upper portion of the said chamber is formed by a substantially vertically arranged neck a which projects upwardly from and is in- 5 tegral and therefore rigid with the body A.
The chamber 13 is in communication at its lower end and adjacent the spout 12 with the said spout. That is, the body A is provided between the inner end of the spout 7 and the said chamber 13 with a port 15 which forms the water-outlet of the chamber and the inlet of the spout and consequently establishes communication between the spout and the said chamber.
The passageway 10 at its inner end has an end wall 14 which forms a portion of the surrounding wall of the chamber 13 and is provided a suitable distance above the port 15 with vertically spaced slots or ports 16 30 which extend substantially horizontally through the said end-wall and circumferen tially of the chamber and connect the said chamber with the said passageway and form waterinlets of the chamber. 5
By the construction hereinbefore described it will be observed that the chamber 13 at one side and a suitable distance above its lower end has a water-inlet (a port or ports 16) which communicates with the passageway 10, and at its lower end and opposite side but below its water-inlet, has a wateroutlet communicating with the spout.
A reciprocatory piston-valve is arranged within and movable endwise of the chamber 13, which valve comprises a body B which is cylindrical and arranged substantially vertically centrally of the said chamber. The valve-body B is enough smaller diametrically than the chamber 13 to form an annular space 17 around the valvebody. The said pistonvalve also comprises two elastic and compressible circular washers D and E which are composed of compressible and elastic material, such, for instance, as rubber or leather. The washer D rests upon and covers the upper end surface of and is suitably held to the valve-body B. The washer D has a downwardly projecting annular wing (Z which loosely surrounds the upper or contiguous end of the valve-body and internally flares toward the opposite end of the valve-body. The washer E is arranged at and covers the lower end surface of and is suitably held to the valve-body B.
The washer E is provided with an upwardly projecting annular wing e which loosely surrounds the lower or contiguous end of the valve-body B and internally flares toward the opposite end of the valve-body.
The hereinbefore described piston-valve controls communication through the chamber 13 between the water-inlet or inlets and the water-outlet of the chamber, and consequently between the water-receiving passageway 100 and the spout 12, and the relative arrangement of the parts is such that in the lowermost and fully closed position of the piston-valve, as shown in Fig. 1, the ports 16 are all in communication between the wings (Z and e of the washers D and E with the annular space 17 formed around the valve-body B, but during the movement of the valve from its lowermost and fully closed position into its uppermost and fully open position shown in Fig. 2 communication between the ports 16 and the wateroutlet of the chamber is successively established, and all of the ports 16 are in communication below the valve and through the said chamber with the said water'outlet when the valve is in its uppermost and fully open position. It will be observed that upon the passage of water under pressure through the ports 16 into the annular space 17 around the valve-body B when the valve is in its lowermost and fully closed position hydraulic pressure is exerted against the flaring internal surfaces of the wings (Z and e of the elastic and compressible washers D and E and thereby forms a fluid-tight joint between the said washers and the surrounding wall of the chamber 13. It will be observed also that upon the passage of water under pressure to the chamber 13 through the ports 16 in the uppermost and fully open position of the piston-valve water passes to the external surface of the wing e of the lower compressible and elastic washer E and acts to still further loosen the said wing relative to the surrounding wall. of the said chamber so that water under pressure passes into the annular space 17 formed around the valvebody B to the internal flaring surface of the wing (Z of the upper elastic and compressible washer D and results in the exertion of hydraulic pressure against the last-mentioned surface and thereby forms a fluid-tight joint between the last-mentioned washer and the surrounding wall of the chamber. It will be seen therefore that by the construction hereinbefore described the piston-valve has such arrangement relative to the ports 16 or water inlets of the chamber 13 and the port 15 or water-outlet of the said chamber that the ports 16 all discharge between the wings (Z and e of the washers D and E respectively in the lowermost and fully closed position of the valve, that the valve in its said position has its lower washer E arranged wholly above the water outlet of the chamber, and that the valve in its uppermost and fully open position has the last-mentioned washer arranged wholly above the 1 uppermost port 16.
The neck a has its upper or outer endportion externally screw-threaded, and a correspondingly internally screw-threaded cap G is screwed onto the said end-portion of the said neck and hence removaloly attached to the latter. The cap G is provided cen trally with a hole 9 extending vertically there-through to accommodate the location of a tube h which is arranged substantially vertically and centrally relative to the neck (Z and extends through the said hole.
A substantially vertically arranged rod 1 extends centrally and endwise through the valve-body B and through the washers D and E and tube h. The rod I extends a suitable distance above the tube h, as at 20, Fig. 1, and consequently above or beyond the outer end of the neck a, and the upper or outer end of the rod is screw-threaded externally and provided with a head which consists preferably of a knob J having a shank 22 which has a correspondingly threaded bore and is screwed onto and thereby removably attached to the said end of the said rod, which shank at its inner end abuts against the outer end of the tube It and forms a nut which is tightened against the said end of the said tube. A circular metal washer K is interposed between the inner end of the tube It and the upper elastic and compressible washer D.
The rod I extends a suitable distance below the lower elastic and compressible washer E and has its lower or inner end screw-threaded externally, and a correspondingly threaded nut m is mounted on the last-mentioned end of the rod; A circular metal washer Z is interposed between the nut m and the under side of the lower elastic and compressible washer E. The washer Z is enough smaller in external diameter than the diameter of the chamber 13 to form an annular space 18 surrounding the said washer to accommodate the flow of water around the said washer to the lower elastic and compressible washer E when the valve is in its uppermost and fully open position.
The nut m is tightened so that the washers E and Z, the valve-body B, the washers D and K and the tube h are clamped by and between the nuts 22 and m, as shown in Fig. 1, and the nut 22 is large enough in diameter at its lower end to somewhat overlap, as at 23, the top of the cap Gr around the hole 9, and rests upon the said cap in the lowermost and fully open position of the valve.
It will be observed that the cap G forms the upper end Wall of the chamber 13, that a spiral spring .9 is coiled around the tube It and confined within the neck a between the said wall and the washer K and acts to retain the piston-valve in its lowermost and fully closed position, and that the nut m and the rod I and its head J constitute means whereby the valve is actuated upwardly against the action of the spring to move the valve from its fully closed into its fully open position. Obviously the cap G and the cap-overlapping portion of the lower end surface of the knob-shank or nut 22 cooperate to form a stop for limiting the downward or inward movement of the rod I and connected valve.
hat I claim is 1. A faucet or the like comprising a valve casing having a body which has a waterreceiving passageway and a spout which are suitably spaced; a chamber having an end-portion thereof formed by and within the said body between the said passageway and the spout, which chamber has an inlet and an outlet spaced endwise of the chamher and communicating with the said passageway and s'pout respectively; a tubular neck formed on the body of the valve-casing and forming the other end-portion of the said chamber; a cap attached to the outer end of the neck and provided centrally with a hole extending therethrough; a valve-body arranged centrally of the chamber and enough smaller transversely than the chamber to form a space circumferentially of the valve-body; two elastic and compressible washers arranged at opposite end faces respectively of the valvebody and provided each with a wing which loosely surrounds the contiguous end of the valvebody; a rod arranged centrally of and extending endwise through and beyond the ends of the valve-body and through the aforesaid hole in the cap; a nut screwed onto the inner end of the rod; a metal washer interposed between the nut and the adjacent elastic and compressible washer and being enough smaller transversely of the chamber than the latter to form a space circumferentially of the said metal washer; a tube embracing the rod within the aforesaid neck and extending through the hole in the cap and from the cap inwardly toward the adjacent elastic and compressible washer, a metal washer interposed between the last-mentioned elastic and compressible washer and the inner end of the tube, and a nut screwed onto the outer end of the rod and tightly against the outer end of the tube.
2. A faucet or the like comprising a valvecasing having a body which has a water-re ceiving passageway and a spout which are suitably spaced; a cylindrical chamber having an end-portion thereof formed by and within the said body between the said passageway and the spout, which chamber has an inlet and an outlet spaced endwise of the chamber and communicating with the said passageway and spout respectively; a tubular neck formed on the body of the valvecasing and forming the other end-portion of the said chamber; a cap removably attached to the outer end of the neck and provided centrally with a hole extending therethrough; a cylindrical valvebody arranged centrally of the chamber and enough smaller diametrically than the chamber to form an annular space around the valve-body; two elastic and compressible washers arranged at opposite end faces respectively of the valve-body and provided each with an annular wing which loosely surrounds the contiguous end of the "alve-body; a rod arranged centrally of and extending endwise through and beyond the ends of the valvebody and through the aforesaid hole in the cap; a nut screwed onto the inner end of the rod; a metal washer interposed between the nut and the adjacent elastic and compressi ble washer and being enough smaller in diameter than the aforesaid chamber to form an annular space around the said metal washer; a tube embracing the rod within the aforesaid neck and extending through the hole in the cap and from the cap inwardly toward the adjacent elastic and compressible washer; a metal washer interposed between the last-mentioned elastic and compressible washer and the inner end of the tube, and a nut screwed onto the outer end of the rod and tightly against the outer end of the tube.
