IMPROVEMENT IN TUMBLER'WASHERS,
The Schedule referred to in these Letterlcratent and making part of the lame.
To` llfwhom it Imay concern Beit known that .1, ALBERT HALLOWELL, yof' y Lowell, iu the county. o f Middlesex and State of.' j Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in TumblerfWashers, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description,reference 'beinghad to the accompanying drawing making part of this specification, in whichj Figure 1 represents a Vertical vsection through the Y `v `In thisfinvention a jet is closed at its top by a y latter andthe valveupward when there is no water or pressure of water in the pipe.
W'henan inverted tumbler is placed over the jet,
4its weight is intended to press the rod downward and i openthe valve, and a shower or spray of water isthrown upward into the tumbler until it is removed.
In the drawinga denotes la vertical conduit or tube, which is closed at the top, and there provided with a series of branch ,tubes,.e e e e, leading from t, aud curved as shown in the thawing.
Each of these branch tubes terminates in a perforated acorn-shaped cap, k, and inside of each tubee, alittle below this cap, is avalve, q, seating upward, and
when .seated closing all the perforations Aof the eap water-tight.
Pipe? -The weight ofthe valve lis to be so adjusted to the upward pressure of the water beneath it that when undisturbed it will remain constantly closed by the force ofthe water without the aid of the spring j, which is only used to hold the valve against its seat in the absence of water, as before described.
Each inverted tumbler is placed on a suitable stand, or in a cup, n, over the top or cap k of the branchpipe, which projects so far above the tumbler-seating,
surface of the stand or cup, that when the invertedA tumbler is placed over the cap vk, the weight of the tumbler will press upon the knob't', depres's the valverod, and open the valve, causing the-,water to be thrown upward audoutward in-spray against the bottom and sides of the tumbler.
Leading from each branch-tubec there' is au 'auxiliary branch-tube, j', which opens out of the'tube e,
and into and supports atubular jet-ring, g, arranged over the cup. 4'
'The tubular jet-ring, brauch-pipes, and cups are substantially likel those .shown in my patent dated February 13, 1866, reissued to G. D. Dows and O.
Dows and G. S. Cushing, dated March 8, 1870, the" 'principal peculiarity of this-iuventioubeing the valve operating in connection with ,the water-delivery pipe and its perforated top olicap toA arrest the flow of water when the tumbler is removed.
lhe instrument or apparatus is designed to be used in connection with soda-water stands, or other places where many tumbler-s are constantly in use and require frequent washingl or rinsing.
I claim as my invention as follows:
I n connect-ion with the water-delivering pipe, 'provided with a perforated cap or top, substantially as described, the upward-seating valve q, having a projecting rod, m, When arranged and operating in the manner and for the purpose specied.
