FAUCET.
951 ,855. Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed January 28. 1809. Serial No. 474.864.
To It i /m'm. 'it may concern.
Be it known that. l, \VJLLLUL J. Sunmvax, a citizen of the United States, and resulent at Brooklyn. New fork, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful improvements in lZ-iurets, ot \\llltll the following is as. spmritication.
My invention relates to faucets.
It relates particulariy to a newand imprihed liquid faucet in which no S1' )llllg$ are employed, and the usual wear thereon 'and on screw-threads is eliminated. I
The object of my invention is to providea iaucet which shall be. easily and economically constructed, contain a minimum number of parts subject. to wear, breakage 0. dc terioration, which shall be easily taken to pieces should repairs be necessary, and shall. l
contain no parts likely to easily get out of order.
To carry out my invention, I provide a faucet in which the pressure of the water automatically keeps" the cock closed, and which is operated by a gentle downward pressure transmitted to a ball valve.
In the drawing: Figure 1. shows a perspective view of my improved faucet, and Fig. 2, a lon itudinal section of the same.
Re erring to the drawings: -l designates the body of the faucet, 2 the inlet and 3, the outlet openings. Between the inlet 2 and the outlet 3 is fashioned the circular valve seat 4, normally kept closed by the ball valve 5.
6 is a spindle havin a curved lower surface resting upon the all 5, and controlled at its upper e d by the blank washer 7. Against the washer rests the vertically movable rod 8, flanged at its base, and held in position, together with the washer 7, by the screw-threauled adjustable cap 8. The upper portion of the faucet is shown with an integral, thread 9, into which in the figure are shown, screwed, the guide washers 10 and 11 permitting easy vertical movement of the spindle (3. At the base of the faucet is the screw plug 12-, hollowed'at 13 to form a lower seat for the ball 5, and controlling, in, combination with the rod 8, the amount of vertical play of the ball 5, and consetpiently the amount of water passing through the passage t to the outlet 3.
The operation of my device is easily understood from the drawing (Fig. 2). Assume the faucet to be attached to the water main, the pressure of the water forces the ball a up and into its seat 4, in the position shown by the full lines, in Fig. 2.. The ball en- A tirely fills the circular valve-seat. 5, and.no water can pass. If new rod 8 be pressed, it. will act, through washer 7, n onspindle t) andt'orce the ball 5 downfofi its seat 4., the hollow space in the scrcw=plug l2 allowing the ball to descend intothe. position indicated by thedotted lines. \Vater will then pass as long as pressure is kept on the spindle (5. As soon as the pressure on'8 is relieved, the water will force the ball 5 again back into its seat 4, and the outflow.
of water will cease. To take the faucet apart for cleaning or repair, it is only necessary to unscrew the screw-plug 12, when the ball 5 and the spindle 6 will drop down through the opening left by the screw-plug. tcmoving the screw-cap 8 gives access to the washer 7 and the guide- screws 10 and 11. I have shown the spindle 6 as hollow, and that is my preferred form, since it otters a lighter construction, but it is evident that my invention is independent of whether it be hollow or solid, or within practical limits, of its size. Although the pressure of the water upon the ball 5 will cause the spindle (5 to hold the washer 7 in an upwardly curved position, yet I prefer to make the washer of elastic, springy material, so thatit may naturally take the position shown in Fig. 2. i
Fig. 2 shows a faucet of ordinary construction adapted to receive the partsthat characterize my invention. But it is evident that the screw- guides 10 and 11 could be dispensed with, and the upper part of the faucet be made solid with the exception of a hole for the passage of the spindle 6.
Having thus fully described and illustrated my invention, what I claim is: i
In. a faucet, an inlet and an outlet opening, a ball valve located between said openings, held normally closed by the pressure of the water, an adjustable hollow seat below the valve fashioned to' receive the ball Signed at New York, in the county of when the valve-is opened, a s ring wa'sher New York, and State of New York this 10 sialaling theh fgucet cap, a fho low 'ipin'dle' 21st day of January A. D. 1909.
