MAA WW V nwnfozf PETER VICE, on NEW YORK, N. Y.
NON-REFILLABLE BOTTLE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed April 2, 1909.
Patented Nov. 1, 1910. Serial No. 487,393.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, PETER VICE, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in N oil-Refillable Bottles; and I do 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 appertains to make and use the same.
My invention relates to improvements in non-refillable bottles.
The object of the invention is the provision of a bottle adapted to be filled but once, and which is rendered useless after the original contents are poured out.
Vith this primary object in view, the improvement includes a peculiar combination and arrangement of gravity-operated valves, the structure being such that it is impossible to withhold the valve elements from closing position by means of suction, or to force liquid into the bottle while the same is held in a horizontal position in order to effect displacement of the valves.
An additional object resides in attaining these several ends by means of a construction possessing great simplicity, general efficiency, and which is,-at once, comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.
lVith these several objects and advantages in view, the invention, in its preferred embodiment, comprises the novel combination and arrangement of parts about to be fully described, and pointed out in the claim hereto appended.
In the drawing, forming a part of this specification, and which is to be read in conjunction therewith, the figure is a vertical section of a bottle embodying my improvements.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, A designates the body, and B the neck thereof. The body and the neck are connectedlay means of a bulged-portion C which forms a pocket D within the bottle, for a purpose presently to be mentioned. Beneath the pocket D, is a valve seat E, formed at the lower part of the bulged-portion'G.
F is a valve, preferably in the form of a ball, adapted to rest in the valve seat E. The ball F may be made of any suitable substance, and may be sufficiently light to permit of liquid forcing it against the seat E, should any attempt be made to refill the bottle while inverted, or held in a horizontal position, and may be included, when the bottle is made.
The upper wall of the bulged-portion C is bent inward and downward to form the sharp, angular abutment G, from which the inner wall of the ball continues upward, being inclined slightly toward the center of the bottle, such inclined part of the neck being designated at H. At the top of the inclined part H, the wall of the bottle curves gradually upward and outward to form a seat I, adapted to hold the valve J which is preferably cup-shaped. The valve J may be of any desired shape, either conical orv with a rounded bottom, but is preferably itself in the form of a cup, with a curved bottom conforming to the lower part of the seat I, thereby enabling the valve to fit snugly into the seat below the top of the seat. The valve J is preferably constructed of a suitable air-penetrable, or porous substance, such as pumice-stone, which willpermit the passage of air, but obstruct the flow of liquid. In this way, I am able to prevent effectually, withdrawing the valve from its seat by means of a suction created at the opening of the neck. Carried by the valve J are wires K, which carry curved hooks at their lower ends, preferably brittle, arranged to engage and be held from displacement by means of the abutment G.
In filling the bottle, the liquid contents are first poured in, and then, preferably, the ball F inserted, the liquid passing down and taking position on the seat E. The valve J is then adjusted into position, the hooks K being sprung into engagement with the abutment G. l/Vhen the bottle is inverted for pouring, the valve J drops away from its seat and likewise the valve F, which is received and held in the pocket D during pouring of the liquid. Owing to the abutment Gr engaging with the hooks K, it is impossible to remove the valve J from the neck of the bottle, after it has once been positioned, and the valve J together with the hooks K, prevent the ball F from passing through the opening. Even if the valve J is held off of its seat by some means, and it is attempted to refill the bottle by means of pressure, or otherwise, the ball F is immediately carried into position on the seat E, and Will positively prevent the entrance of liquid to the body portion of the bottle.
Having thus fully described the nature and construction of my improvement, What I desire to secure by Letters-Patent and claim is:
In a non-refillable bottle, the combination with a neck increasing gradually in thick. ness toward its central portion to form a curved valve-seat, of a cup-shaped valve arranged in said seat and provided With an interiorly beveled upper edge, the inner surface of said valve forming a regular, unbroken curve with the valve-seat, a sharp,
angular abutment below said valveseat, a pocket surrounding the abutment and extending above the same, hooks carried by said valve and arranged to engage the abutment aforesaid, an additional valve-seat below said pocket, and a ball positioned in the last-mentioned valve-seat.
In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in the presence of two subscribing Witnesses.
