HORACE FALK NEUMEYER, OF MACUNGIE, PENNSYLVANIA.
FAUCET.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HORACE F. Nun arriynn, a citizen of the United States, residing at Macungie, in the county of Lehigh and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new-and useful Faucet, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to improvements in faucets.
The object of the present invention is to improve the construction of faucets, and to provide a simple and comparatively inexpensive one, adapted for use as a beer cock, and capable of also being used for 1." water and other high pressures.
The invention also has for its object to provide a sanitary faucet of this character, adapted to be easily taken apart and readily put together without the use of a wrench, and capable also of being readily rewashered and of affording a guide for enabling a washer to be cut the proper size.
With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in the construction and novel combination of parts hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims here to appended; it being understood that various changes in the form, proportion, size and minor details of construction, within the scope of the claims, may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention.
In the drawing :Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a faucet, constructed in accordance with this invention. Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view, the section being taken centrally of the weighted operating handle. Fig. 3 is a plan view of the outer portion of the faucet, the rotary sleeve and the lug for actuating the slidable spout sleeve being in section. Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view on the line %t of Fig. 1. Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view of the inner end of the slidable spout carrying sleeve.
Like numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all the figures of the 7 drawing.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed February 17, 1910.
Patented Mar. 28, 1911.
Serial No. 544,379.
gular enlargement 3, adapted to fit in a square hole a in the part 5 of the bar fixture, or other support to which the faucet is to be applied. The threaded portion 2 of the barrel or body extends through the supporting board or part 5 and receives a clamping nut 6, engaging the inner or rear face of the supporting board or member 5, and adapted to clamp the faucet tightly on the same. The inner terminal of the body or barrel is connected by a cap or spur nut 7 with a small elbow or spur 8 to which the block tin pipe or tubing is secured. The short elbow tube or spur is provided adjacent to the barrel or body of the faucet with a flange 9, which is arranged within the nut 7, but the latter is provided with an engaging flange 10. A washer 11 is interposed between the short elbow tube or spur 8 and the end of the barrel of the faucet to form a liquid tight joint. The body or barrel of the faucet is also provided with an annular enlargement 12, tapered at the front and provided at the back with a pcripheral recess 13, adapted to receive a detachable annular flange 14:, which is dished or tapered, as shown, and which covers the opening in the supporting member 5. The flange 14 is interlocked with the body or barrel of the faucet by the means of a projection 15, consisting of a steel pin set in a bore of the annular enlargement and engaging a recess 16 in the inner periphery of the flange. The interlocking of the flange lat and the body of the faucet prevents relative rotary movement, and the. flange is rigidly secured to the supporting board or member by a screw 17, piercing the flange and embedded in the supporting board or member 5. The fastening of the flange t0 the supporting member will prevent rotary movement of the body of the faucet, should the recess or opening in the supporting member not correspond properly with the polygonal enlargement 3.
The outer portion of the barrel or body of the faucet is equipped with a plurality of annular grooves 18, adapted to receive a suitable packing for preventing the liquid from' leaking or percolating rearwardly through the faucet between the barrel or body and a slidable spout sleeve 19. The end of the body or barrel is also provided with an enlarged groove or recess 20, adapted to receive a packing to render the faucet liquid tight at this point when it is em- (will ploved for high pressures, the terminal packing being unnecessary when the faucet is employed for low pressures. Any suitable packing may be employed for the annular grooves 18 and for the terminal groove or recess 20.
The spout sleeve, which fits snugly on the outer portion of the barrel. or body of the faucet, is provided near its outer end with a depending spout 21, and its outer end has interior screw threads 22 and is adapted to receive a valve plug The valve plug has a head or flange 24:, which fits against the outer end edge 25, the two abutting surfaces being machined to afford a perfect lit and a tight joint. The valve plug is equipped at its inner end with a loose metallic disk 2b and a washer 27 of leather, or other suitable material, interposed between the metallic disk and the outer end of the body or: barrel of the faucet. The washer 27 is pierced by a screw 28,.which passes through a central opening of the metallic disk and engages a threaded bore or socket at the inner end of the valve plug. The head of the alve plug is provided with a groove to receive the blade of a screw driver for enabling the plug to be removed when it is desired to rewasher the faucet. The loose or detachable metallic disk is adapted to form. a guide to enable a washer to be cut the proper size, and by this means a washer may be quickly applied to the faucet by an unskilled person.
The slidable spout sleeve is provided at its inner end with a longitudinal slot 30, and is held against rotary movement by a lug 31, formed integral with the body or barrel of the faucet and engaging with the longitudinal slot. The longitudinal slot and the lug are shown at the bottom of the fancet in the accompanying drawing, but they may be located at any other point, as will be readily understood. By this construction the spout sleeve is permitted to slide inwardly and outwardly on the body or barrel of the faucet, but is held against rotary movement.
The slidable spout sleeve is provided with a diagonally or spirally arranged cam slot 32, which receives an actuating lug 83 of a weighted oscillatory operating handle 34. The handle is mounted on a rotary sleeve fitted on the inner portion of the slidable spout sleeve and provided with a threaded opening 36 and having an integral annular boss surrounding the opening and forming an extension thereof. The inner end 37 of the operating handle is reduced and threaded to engage in the threaded opening and a shoulder 38, forn'led by the reduction of the inner end of the handle, engages the edge of the annular boss or flange of the opening SC. The actuating lug presents its side faces to the walls of the cam groove 32, and when it is moved transversely of the faucetthrough the rotation of the sleeve and the oscillation of the handle,it engages the walls of the cam groove and moves the spout sleeve inwardly or outwardly according to the direction of the movement of the operating handle. \Vhen the operating handle is swung to the left the spout sleeve is moved outward to open the faucet, and a. movement of the operating handle to the right closes the faucet, the weight of the handle and the cam groove of the spout sleeve maintaining the faucet tightly in its closed position. The lug is provided with a stem 39, which is received within a longitudinal bore -10 of the operating handle. The lug is adapted to be introduced into the cam slot through the threaded opening of the rotary sleeve in assembling the parts.
The rotary sleeve is held against longitudinal movement by means of a transverse flange ll, preferably integral with the body or barrel of the faucet and engaging an annular groove The annular groove 42, which is located at the inner end of the rotary sleeve, is formed by inner and outer integral. annular flanges 43 and 4A1, the outer flange being provided with an entrance recess 45 to enable the transverse flange to be readily introduced into the groove when the sleeve 35 is rotated to carry the said recess opposite the transverse flange ll, which is preferably arranged at the top of the faucet. The entrance recess is carried out of line or register with the transverse lug when the sleeve 35 is rotated to bring the threaded opening in position at the top of the faucet.
In practice the barrel or body of the faucet and the spout will be provided with block tin linings it; and 4-7. The parts of the faucet are easily assembled and separated without the assistance of a skilled mechanic, so that the faucet may be maintained in a clean sanitary condition without ditliculty or inconvenience.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
