Description

UNTTED sTATEs PATENT OFFICE.
WINFIELD L. DINSMOOR, OF LONGBEACH, CALIFORNIA.
ULLAGE-ROD.
To au whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, VINFLELD L. Dins- `Moon, a citizen of the United States, residing at Longbeach, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have inventedI a new and useful Ullage-Rod, of which the following is a specification.
The objects of the inventionv are, generally, the provision in a mechantable form, of a device of the above mentioned class, which shall be inexpensive to manufacture, facile in operation, and devoid of complicated parts; specifically, the provision of an ullage rod provided with liquid receiving openings of novel and improved construction; other and further objects being made manifest hereinafter as the description of the invention progresses.
The invention consists in the novel coni struction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described, delineated in the accompanying drawings, and particularly pointed out in that portion of this instrument wherein patentable novelty is claimed for certain distinctive and peculiar features of the device, it being understood, that, within the scope of what hereinafter thus is claimed,
divers changes in form, size proportions and minor details of the structure may be made without departing from the spirit or sacrifficing the advantages of the invention. j
Similar numerals of reference are employed to denote corresponding parts throughout the several figures of the drawings.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 shows my invention in front elevation; Fig. 2 is a front elevation of the lower extremity of the device, the same being shown upon an enlarged scale that the details of construction may more clearly appear; and Fig. 3 is a transverse section of the device on the line A-B of Fig. 2, looking in the direction of the arrows.
The rod proper, which, inthe accompanying drawings, is denoted by the numeral 1 is preferably lfashioned from resilient metal and, as shown in Fig. 3, is relatively thin. Adjacent its upper end 3, the rod is provided with an opening 4 whereby it may be suspended from a support. The rod is .pro-
vided with a series of openings 5 and 6, ex-
Specification of Letters Patent. Y Patented Jan, 18, 1910, Application filedMay 6, 1909. Serial No. 494,247.
valined openin s 5 are located relatively near to one edge o the rod, while the openings G `are disposed substantially along the longitudinal center of the instrument. lt is to be understood that these openings and 6 may be made in a variety of ways but, in the present instance, I have located the openings 5 half way between the openings G, the spaces 7 between the openings being equal, since the openings are adapted to serve as graduations upon the rod.' The openings and 6 are provided with laterally extending grooves 8 located in one face of the rod and extending outwardly to the edge thereof, these grooves 8 constituting gradualions along the face of the rod. The diameters of the openings 5 and 6 will be determined by the character of the liquid which is to be measured but it is to be understood, that, in any case, the diameters are-to be sufficiently small to retain the liquid in the oponin gs by capillary attraction.V y
Graduations, denotedby the numeral 10 may be inscribed along the face of the rod and any arbitrary system of numberingniay be employed. When the device is to be used continuously in the same vessel, the rod n'iay be placed inthe vessel and a given quantity of liquid may be introduced thereinto. The height of this liquid upon the rod may then be noted and the openings G and 5, together with the grooves or channels 8, will indicate fractional parts-of the volume which has ben poured into the receptacle to rate the ro VI regard it as of importance, that the openings 5 and 6 extend entirely through the rod. By this construction, after the device has been used to ascertain the amount of liquid in a given receptacle, one end of the device may be graspedin the hand, the other end thereof being struck smartly against any convenient obstacle, whereby the liquid held iu the openings 5 and 6 will be projected from the rod, an inversion or turning of the rod being unnecessary. 'Moreover, since the'rod is fashioned from resilient material, by grasping the extremities of the rod and bending the same slightly, the equilibrium ofthe liquid within the openings 5 and G will' be disturbed to such an extent that it will fall out of the openings in which it has been confined hitherto. 4
The openings 5 and 6 together with the channels or grooves 8 serve to indicate the i upon its edge, the openings 5 and 6l may be quickly and thoroughly drained, through the channels 8, the liquid owin through the channels 8 when t h e rod is thus struck, instead of spattering out of .the-apertures in Which it is confined. Moreover, by grooving the rod transversely as denoted by the numeral 8, the same may be bent more easily, so that as hereinbefore described, the
equilibrium of the liquid Within the apertures 5 and 6 may be disturbed, to drain the rod. Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new and desire'to secure by Letters Patent is downwardly v ings to the edge of the rod.
ataca@ 1. An ullage rod provided wth'openings extending entirely therethrough, and' with superficial channels leading from the open- 2. A' resilient .ullage rod provided with 20 openings extending entirely therethrough, and with superficial channels 'leading from the openings to the edge of the rod.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own, I have hereto aflixed my signature 25 in the presence of two Witnesses.
