HENRY HUSS OF GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT.
- Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Feb. 10, 1914.
Application filed May 5, 1913. Serial No. 765,668.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, HENRY HUss, acitizen of the United States, residing at Greenwich, county of Fairfield, State of Connecticut, have invented an Improvement in Liquid- Dispensing Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention has for its object to provide an inexpensive portable reservoir for containing liquids which shall be provided. with reliable, eflective, and durable means for discharging the liquid without chemical act-ion.
My novel reservoir is adapted for various uses, for example, as an emergency oil suply for turbines should the pum break own, or as a portable fire extinguis er.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification, the view is a longitudinal sectionof a reservoir with a collapsible container therein embodying my novel invention.
1O denotes the reservoir or body, shown as tubular, which is providedat one end with a fixed cap 11 and at the other end with a removable cap 12.
13 denotes a shouldered plug which passes through cap 11' and is provided with a longitudinal hole 14 and with a head 15 within the reservoir. The plug-is shown as threaded exteriorly of the cap and as rigidly secured in place by a nut 16, the joints being of course leaded or acked in order to make them hermetically tight. At the outer end of the plug is a ock 17. Cap 12 is provided with a hole which is closed by plug 18. v V
The vitally important feature of the invention is a collapsible container 19 which islike a bag, closed at one end, the open end being permanently secured tothe head of the plug. This container may be made of light copper or of any metal. alloy or other material that will be durable and fluidtight.
20 denotes an air space betweenfthe collapsible container. and the inner wall of the reservoir. In assembling, the collapsiblea screw I container is secured to the head of the plug,
then the plug is passed through cap 11 and secured by'means of the nut. This may be done either before or after'the cap is secured to the body. After the plug andcontainer.
five or six atmospheres, for example. The
opening is then closed by the screw plu in such a manner as to leave the reservoir er-- metically sealed. e
Theoperation in discharging is simply to open the cock. The instant this is done the pressure of the air in the space 20 between the collapsible container and the inner wall of the reservoir will cause the container to collapse and thereby expel its contents, as for example, afire-extinguishing compound. Having thus described my invention, I claim:
In a structure ofthe character described,
the combination of a collapsible, tubular,
metallic container closed at one end and 'havin pressed air reservoir of greater inner dimen sions thereabout, having an opening at one end to receive the shouldered head, means for securing the head to the reservoir, and means for securing a cock in said head, and provided at the other end with an opening for admitting air under compression to com a shouldered head provided with a centra passage at the other end, with a completely surround the container, and a closure for retaining the compression in said reservo1r.- In testimony whereof I afiix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
