A. A. PINDSTOFTE. APPARATUS FOR RINSING BOTTI TS APPLICATION FILED SMI'` I1, 1912 f, II III' i Patented Mar. 4. 1913.

APPARATUS FOR RINSING BOTTLES.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Mar. 4, 1913.

Application filed September 11, 1912. Serial No. 719,862.

Be it known that l, A\Nm:as NmutsuN Plxns'rorun, director, a subject ot' the Kingdom of Denmark, residing at No. 62 Frederiksberg Alle, Copenhagen, Denmark, have invented certain new and useful lmprovements in Apparatus for ltinsing of Bottles; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description ot' the invention, such as will enable others skillet] in the art t0 which it appertains to make and use the same.

The invention relates to apparatus 'tor 'rinsing of bottles previously treated in a bottle cleaning machine. t

The apparatus, which is of the kind by which the bottles are inserted upon upward directed rinsing pipes leading from a rotatory water reservoir connected to a source of water under pressure, is characterized by loose bottle supports inserted upon the rinsing pipes and movable along said pipes, and which bottle supports are guided along said pipes by means et a stationary guide in such a manner, that at the place where the hottles are inserted or withdrawn said bottle supports are raised beyond the ends ot the rinsing pipes, so that neither said pipes nor the bottles can be damaged during the insertion 0r the withdrawal otl the bottles, while during the time between the insertion and the Withdriwal, said bottle supports are successively carried down. alongthe rinsingr pipes and again upward, thereby causing the bottles during this period to he automatically carried down over the rinsing pipes and again raised beyond the same. The arrangement is further such, that the bottle s1n1ports turn around the rinsing pipes duri 1g the rotation ot the apparatus. so that the bottles are rotated during the rinsing. wl ich of course. will be very ett'ectively donc A constractioual t'orm o't the invention is illustratel on the drawing.

Figure l is a side view ot' the apparatus partially ir, vertical section. ltig. 2 is a plan of par ot the apparatusl partially in horizontal stetion.

u is the w: ter reservoir mounted lo rotate on the shat't 1: and provided with a numher ot' upa-ard lireeted rinsingr pipes l1 and through the lipe n connected to a source ot 'ater under pressure, trom which the reservol is adapted to be constantly supplied with water under pressure. Upon the pipes l; bottle supports are mounted, which can be. moved along` said pipes. Said bottle supports consist ot' a guide piece d and a tunnel-shaped support f. The lower conical part n ot' the guide piece (l travels during` the rotation of the reservoir a along a stationary guide g, which is ot' such a shape, that the supportsf at the place when the bottles are inserted and withdrawn (see the right hand side of Fig. l) are raised beyond the ends of the rinsing pipes, so that neither said pipes nor the bottles h can be damaged during the insertion or withdrawal of the bottles, while during the period hetween the insertion and the withdawal of the bottles said supports f 'are successively larried down alongthe rinsing pipes (see the left hand side of Fig. 1) and again upward, so that the bottles during this period are automatically carried down over the rinsing pipes and again raised beyond the same.

The construction is adapted to be provided with means whereby the water will he caused to flow through the several distributing pipes I; when said pipes enter their respective bottles, 1'.. e., when the bottle supports are at. the lowermost positions on the track-way y; and means may also be provided for automatically closing ott the water flow through said pipes when their respective bottles are at the u )permost position ou the track-way g. i casing z' is scoured to rotate with the reservoir a, and has the wall thereof constructed to provide lobes, or recesses 7u, adapted to receive and support the bottles (hiring the washing 0peration. Said automatic regulating means t'or causing the stoppage and permitting of the flow ot the washing liquid through the several pipes b consists of an arcuate plate Y', which is stationary and lies against the inner surface .ot' the reservoir a, and in which position it covers and uncovers the `openings ot' the pipes b as said pipes are rotated. l

'Ihe conical part n ot' the bottle support` is only in contact with the conical guide tace ot' the guide r/ along a line (see the left hand side. of Fig. l) so that during its travel along the guide it will get a rolling moveuuut, Consequently the bottle supports and thc bottles supported by the same will be rotated around the rinsing pipes,

and ef course the rinsing of the bottles, which furthermore are held in a slight in clined position, will be very leffectively done.

The details described and illustrated mayl be Varied without departing from the prineiple of the invention.

Claims.

1. In an apparatus for rinsing bottles, the combination of a rotary water reservoir, means for supplying water under pressure to said reservoir, a plurality oi rinsing pipes leading from said reservoir, rotatable bottle supports loosely mounted on said rinsingr pipes, and a guide formed as a raising and lowering cam, and having frietioual ontact with said bottle supports, whereby fluring the rotation of the 'ater reservoir` the bottle supports are Caused to move up and down along the rinsing pipes, substantially as described.

2. In an apparatus for rinsing bottles, the combination ol` a rotary water reservoir, means for supplying `water under pressure to said reservoir, a plurality of rinsing pipes leading from said reservoir, rotatable bottle supports mounted on said rinsing l pipes and each provided with va conical part, and a guide formed as a raising and lowering cam, and having friet-ional Contact with said bottle supports, whereby during the rotation ol the water reservoir, the bottle sup- )orts are caused to move u 'and down alon 1V the ri using pi pes, substantially as described. 3. In an apparatus for rinsing bottles, the combination of a rotary water reservoir, means for supplying water under pressure to said reservoir, a plurality of rinsing pipes leading from said reservoir, rotatable bottle supports mounted on said rinsing pipes, a guide Yformed as a raising and lowering element cooperable with said rotatable bottle supports tor raising and lowering the bottles, and a lobed casing secured to rotate with said reservoir and providing rests for the bottles carried by said supports, substantially as deseribed.

In testimony whereof, I affix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
