Application filed July 5, 1911. Serial No. 636,946.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN Gr. Blaming, a citizen of the United States, and residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Im provement in Valves, of which the following is a complete specification.
The main objects of this invention are to provide an improved valve adapted to control the passage of two or more fluids; to
provide a valve of cheap and simple con` munication through one of the lower ports.
Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the valve casing. Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the valve. Fig. 4 is a side elevation of the valve closure.
In the construction shown, the valve casing 1, which may be formed of any suitable material, tapers from its top downwardly7 and is provided in its sides with four ports 2, 3, 4 and 5, arranged approximately 90 de grecs apart, and in the same plane transversely of the closure, and with ports 6 and. 7 which open from opposite sides of the casing beneath the ports 2 and 4 in a plane parallel with the former plane.
The inner surface of the casing is ground and a rotative tapered closure is ground to titclosely in said casing and does not extend quite to the bottom of the casing, as shown more clearly in Fig. 1. Projecting downwardly from the lower end of the closure, axially thereof, is a threaded stud 9, and an apertured bottom plate 10 for the casing lits over said stud and bears against the bot* tom of the casing. A nut 11 has threaded connection on the stud and holds said plate tightly against the casing.
Extending upwardly from the top of the closure, and axially thereof, is the stem 12 which has an angular portion 13 adjacent to the closure, above which is a threaded portion 14, while the remaining portion of the stem is corrugated to afford attachment for a rubber hose.
The closure and stem are provided with an axial bore 15 which extends from the upper end of the stem to near the bottom of the closure and then extends laterally as at 16 and opens through the side of the closure. Passages 17 and 18 extend transversely through the closure parallel with the part 16 of the bore 15, and situated one on either side of said bore. The portion 16 of the bore 15 is so positioned as to be broughtinto register with the lower ports 6 and 7 separately, and the passages 17 and 18 are so positioned as to be brought into register with the ports 2, 3, 4 and 5, and connect said ports in pairs. A locking ring 19 is rigidly but adjustably secured on the top of the casing 1 by means of pins or screws 20, and is pro` vided with locking apertures 21 spaced suitable distances apart circumferentially thereof. An operating lever 22 has a head 23 with an angular aperture therethrough adapted to receive the angular portion 13 of the stem 12, and is secured thereon by means of a nut 24 on the threaded portion 14 of the stem. A locking lever 25 is pivoted in lugs 26, and on the inner end o-f the locking lever is pivoted a locking pin 27 which extends downwardly through a suitable aperture inthe lever 22 and is adapted to engage in the apertures 21 and hold the closure in adjusted position. A spring 28 is secured at one end to the lever 22 outwardly from the lugs 26 and bears at its other end beneath 'the outer end ofthe lever 25.
The operation of the construction shown is as followsyWhen the closure is in the position shown in Figs. 1 and 3, the bore 15-16 communicates with the port 7, and when the closure is turned 180 degrees from that position said bore will communicate with the port 6. In both of these positions of the closure the passages 17 and 18 are out of communication with the ports 2, 3, 4, and 5. If the closure 8 be turned clockwise approximately 45 degrees from its position shown in Fig. 3, the bore 16 is turned out of communication with the port7, and the passages 17 and 18 are respectively brought into communication with the ports 2-5 and 3-4. If the closure be turned ap* proximately 90 degrees farther the passage 17 is brought into communication with the ports 2-3 and the passage 18 is brought into communication with the ports 4-5 In any of those positions the locking pin 27 will lock the closure firmly in place. Should the valve be so positioned that it is impossible to turn the closure the desired distance the locking ring may be adjusted to a position on the Casing Which Will permit the desired movement.
While but one specific embodiment of the invention has been herein yshown and described it will be understood that many details of the construction shown may be varied or omitted Without departing from the scope of the claims.
1. A valve, comprising a casing having a plurality of upper and lovver ports therein, a closure rotatively mounted in the easing and having a transverse passage adapted to communicate With .any adjacent tWo of the upper ports, and having a longitudinal bore adapted to communicate with any of the lovver ports when the transverse passage is out of register with the upper ports, and means for operating said closure.
2. A valve, comprising a easing having tivo sets of Ciroumferentially alined ports, those of one set being in vertical alinement With'a portion of those ofthe other, a elosure rotatively mounted in said casing having transverse passages adapted to connect the ports of one set in pairs, and having an axial bore opening at its inner end through one side thereof adapted to individually connect With the ports of the other set When the transverse passages are out of operative position, and means for operating said closure.
of one set, and having a plurality of transversepassages adapted to register With the ports of the other set and connect vthem in pairs, and means for operating said closure.
4;. A valve, comprising a easing havingtWo sets of ports opening in different transverse planes, a Closure rotatively mounted in said casing having an axial bore opening at its inner end through one side of the Closure and adapted to register With the ports of one set, andhaving a plurality of transverse passages adapted to register With the ports of the other set and connect them in pairs vvhen the bore is out of register with its ports, an operating lever for the Closure, and interlocking means on the lever and easing adapted to hold the closure in adjusted position.
A valve, comprising a easing having tvvo sets of ports opening in diierent transverse planes, a closure rotatively mounted in said casing having an axial bore opening at its inner end through one side of the Closure and adapted to register with the ports of one set, and having a plurality of transverse passages so arranged as to register With the ports of the other set and Conneet them in pairs, When the bore is out of operative position, an operating lever on the closure, a looking lever pivoted on the operating lever, and a locking pin on the looking lever adapted to engage the easing and hold the closure in adjusted position.
6. A valve, Comprising a easing having tivo sets of ports therein in diierent transverse planes, a closure rotatively mounted in said easing having a stem at its outer end adapted to be connected With a hose, and having a threaded stud on its inner end projecting from the bottom of the easing, a
bottom plate on the casing, a nut on the stud adapted to hold the plate in place, there being an axial bore in said stem and closure opening at its inner end through the side of the Closure in position to register With one set of ports, and there being transverse passages in the closure adapted to Connect the ports of the other set in pairs when the bore is out of operative position, an operating lever on said stem, a locking lever pivoted on the operating lever, and a looking pin on the looking lever adapted to engage the casing and hold the Closure in adjusted position.
In Witness whereof I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
