To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, EDWARD A. .FRIE-SE, a .CIUZGH- of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the.county of Jackson and State of Missouri, have invented new and useful-Improvements in Dispensing Appapatus, of -which the following is a specificaion. 1 This invention relates to improvements in mdispensinn apparatus for liquids of any form, and'more particularly to a dispensing apparatus for s'oda fountains. It is the object of this invention to provide a casing to be adj u'st edbeneath the dis- .pensing slab of the soda fountain, which will contain the ice cream receptacle, jars for preserved fruit, jars for syrups of different flavors with theirrespective dispensing apparatus, a draftstand for the carbonated mineral or city waters, a refrigerator compartment for the cooling of the fruit andsyrup jars, a separate refrigerating compartment for the carbonated water and other articles, together with a sink for the washing of glasses, in which the ice cream receptacles are so'constructed and arranged that the ice and brine surrounding them will furnish the refrigerant for the'refrigerator compartments. -The refrigerating compart- 80 ment which surrounds the fruit and syrup .jars is so constructed that the refrigerant circulates freely about all ofv the jars and therefore preserves a uniform temperature. The refrigerant then passes into the lower refrigeratlng compartment.- and circulates .therethrough before being discharged. As there is no insulation between the two compartment-s, the cold from the upper compartment is transmitted and. assistsin chill- 40 ing the lower compartment. The temperature of this lower refrigerating compartment is controlled by the circulating brine,
so that the temperature of this compartment which contains receptacles for the carbonated water will be the same as the upper refrigeratin compartment, and therefore the carbonate water and syrup will be of the same temperature andt-he drink produced bv the mixing of the two will be uniform.
the carbonated and other water are placed directly beneath the ice cream receptacles and each end of the casing is provided with a means operated by the carbonated water passing therethrough when the draft tubes are operated to cause a circulation of air-about the carbonated and other water tanks and thereby prevents excessive cold being transmitted from the. bot

tom of the ice cream receptacles. The syrup jars are provided with a particular form of dispensing apparatus adapted to be received under a part of the slab. The discharge nozzle projecting from the side is stationary and arranged at one side of the operating. lever, thereby preventing any liquid or foreign substance which may be carried by the hand of the operator from dripping into the receiving receptacle vas the syrup is being dispeused,as well as preventing the accidental breaking of the receptacle as often occurs with the movable nozzle. The register actuated by the operating lever will indicate the number of times the device has been operated. The preferred manner of arranging the syrup jars and dispensing apparatus therefor in relation to the dispensing counter and casing is such that the parts are very easily removed.
\Vhile the preferred forms of this invention are illustratedupon the accompanying sheets of drawing, yet it is to be understood that minor detail changes may be made without departing from the scope thereof.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the entire apparatus looking from the back of the dispensing counter. Fig. 2 is a complete longitudinal sectional view taken through the casing containing the apparatus. The parts are symmetrically arranged on each side of the transverse central line, and the left hand side of .Fig. 2 represents a' sec- 'tion taken on the line AA on Fig. 3, and
the right hand part of Fig. 2 represents a section taken on the line B-B of Fig. 3. Fig. 3 is a view in transverse section taken on the line C-C of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is an enlarged detail view in longitudinal section through one of the syrup jars and d1spen sing' apparatus therefor. Fig 5 is a view in front elevation of Fig. 5 with parts broken away. 1
Thedispensing counter 1 and dispensing slab 2 are of the usual form. The casing containing the dispensing apparatus is mounted upon adjustable legs 4 whereby it may acconmodate itself to dispensing counters of different heights. Thecasing central supports adraft stand 5 for the dispensing of the carbonated and other water. A compartment 6 is formed at each end of the-casing for containing the ice cream receptacles, which extend downward from "Lula-inn" i w; ave-MW.
glasscleaner 13' having an inlet at the bottom of the sink and a drain 4: near the top v tition and rear of the casing, and extend tanks 17 are supported upon brackets ex- -,ent-ire width of the casing, the front wall? the ice cream compartments on the under compartments.
'tions between the ice Jars for preserved fruit and syrups of difthe top of the casing, but are terminated in uprightor slanting position. The ice cream receptacle compartments 6 extend the of the casing extends continuously between side of the dispensing slab, while the rear wall 8 of the casing continuously extends between the ice cream compartments, but is of considerably lessheight. A crntinuous compartment 9 is formed adjacent the front of the casing between the two L9 cream compartments by a vertical partition 10-substantially on the longitudinal center line of the casing, and a horizontal partition 11 extending somewhat below the upper surface of the front wall of the casing. A sink 12 for washing glasses is centrally located between the vertical partition and'the rear wall of thecasing which is provided with a Inclined drain boards 15 are tracks on the vertical par;
of the sink. mounted upon on each side of the sink to the ice cream A. towel rail 16 is secured to the rear wall 8. The inner walls of the casing are lined with heat insulating mate-- rial, and the horizontal and vertical particream compartments divide the remainder of the easing into upper and lower refrigerating compartments.
ferent flavors are supported within the .up-
per refrigerating compartment 9. I J
Beneath the ice cream compartments 6 at each end, a plurality of. carbonated water tending from the bottom of these compartments and are held thereby above the bot-- tom of the casing or may rest on the bottom in the brine. Pads 19 of perforated insulating material may be inserted between thebottom of the ice cream compartment and the top of the tanks. It is preferable i thatthe carbonated water be contained in a series of connected tanks with one end of the series in communication with the draft stand and the other end of the series in communication with the carbonating apparatus or source of carbonated water.
A rotating fan 20 operated by a water motor 21 is placed upon each end of the casing between the casing and the adjacent ends of the carbonated water tanks. The water .motor of each fan is placed in the liquid circuit between the source and the inlet to the series of tanks, so that each time the dispensing apparatus of the draft. stand is operated. the motor on the respective side of Q the casing will be operated and thereby cause i bonated'water tanksfand force it toward the center of the lower refrigerating compartment. i
The side walls of each ice cream compartment are lined with heat insulating mate rial, and .a perforated metallic member 22 for receiving the ice'cream can iscentrally located therein allowing a sutlicient space between the walls'of the member and the casing for the packing of ice and brine. Near the top of the upper refrigerating compart ment :1 means of communication 23 is prorided with theintcrior of eachvice cream receptacle oiimpartment, so that as the ice melts the brine in the ice cream receptacle compartment will rise and overflow into the upper refrigerating compartment 9. height of the-brine in the upper refrigerating compartment-is controlled by an overflow pipe 24 leading to the lower refrigerating compartment 25. The bottom of the lower refrigerating compartment is divided by a series of staggered partitions 26, so that the brine will be caused to circulate between these partitions on the bottom'of/ the casing before reaching the 0utlet 2/T leading to the drain 28. A plurality frigerating compartment extending above the staggered partitions upon which bottles containing dtfi'erent substances may he placed and thereby be prevented from com- The .racks 29 may be provided in the lower re ing into direct contact with the brine. Ac-
cess 15 had to the lower refrigerating compartment by slitting one'or the other of the sink. The syrup jars and dispensing ratus therefor are arranged in banks on each side of the draft stand.
A metallic cover 30 is arranged to normally cover the top. of the'dis-pcnsingap paratus upon the syrup jars, but inay b e slid forward under the dispensing, l
cover the top of the dispensmg apparatus 'when it is desired to refill any of thevsyru'p drain boards-15 upon its tracks me; the ppaloo ab 1th" unjars. The coyer 30 is shown in its normal positiongpon the right hand of Fig. 1. and
in its retarded osition ,upon the left hand of Fig.) ,and uponpFig. 3.
The construction of the syrup jars'and dispensing apparatus therefor are shown in detail in Figs. .5 and 6. The syrup jar 31 rests upon the bottom ll of the upper refrigerating compartment,- and extends upward until level 'withthe top of the side partition 10 thereof. The dispensing apparatus is supported by a casing 32 adapted to hermetically seal the top of the jar. which casing extends outward over the side partition and is provided w h :1 depending face plate 33 engaging the. outer side of the partition. From the bottom of the casing is supported a measuring chamber 34 which is received in a slightly larger contracted pornon 1D the bottom of the jar. A rod 35 operating a piston 36 within the measuring crating lever 37 also passes through an openmg in the top of a plate 39 arranged to slide in tracks 40 on each side of the slot, and
' thereby close the opening when the operating rod is in its uppermost position, but which will allow of the reciprocation of the rod. The plunger rod guide comprises a tubular. member 41 supported upon the under side of the top' of the casing and passing through the bottom thereof is provided with an internal screw threaded portron at the lower end adapted to engage a centrally perforated capAtZ surrounding the plunger rod. A conical coil spring 43 is attached to the upper end of the plunger rod and rests upon the inner side of the cap,
and thereby allows an adjustment thereof.
cessed and is provided with a The measuring chamber is a "cup-shaped member having a discharge-tube communicating centrally with the interior of the chamber and leading through the bottom thereof to one side and then upward in a vertical line through the bottom of the casing and thence out through the front plate thereof at one side of the operating lever. The discharge nozzle l5 of the discharge tube is provided. with a pivoted cap 46 which will automatically close at the end of each discharge. The piston 36 is slightly recessed on the upper surface and. is provided with a plurality of inclined ports 47 leading therethrough. The under side of the piston is 'conically recessed and is pro; vided with a correspondingly shaped,-centrally supported flap valve 48. The under surface of thc dispensing chamber is relurality of radial grooves 49 extending t rough the flange formed thereby. The bottom of the chamber is provided with a pluralityof inclined ports0 about the center thereof with a centrally perforated flap valve 51 on the inner side of the chamber adapted to close the ports and communicate with the dis charge tube 44.
Upon the outer side of the partition a regulating and recording device may he socured. The regulating device comprises a rack bar 52 extending above the casing of the device in line'with the operating lever 37, which will limit the downward movement of the lever and thereby regulate the amount of syrup; discharged from the measuring chamber. This rack bar may l e e3- tended v5 withdrawnby means of a. pinion contain and in engagcment therewith carried upon a shaft 53 extending through the outer face of the casing and provided with a knurled head. In order to prevent tampering with the regulating device, an ordinary lock 54 may be provided with thebolt inv position to engage the side of the-pinion opposite the rack bar. A pointer 55 may besecured to the rack bar which extends through a vertical slot in the casing adapted to pass over a scale 56 thereon to indicate the amount of syrup dispensed with each operation; The registering device may consist of any form of odometer 57 operated by a spring member 58 secured upon the lower end of the reciprocating closure plate 39 carried upon. the operating lever. This will allow, on the downward stroke, of the operation of the odometer, but will allow the operating memher to slip over the operating mechanism on its upward stroke.' V v The draft stand may be placed upon the dispensing slab and the center space utilized for a shaved ice receptacle which will enter into the upper refrigerating compartment and rechill the brine before it enters the overflow into the lower compartment.
