MEASURING DEVICE FOR LIQUID-CONTAINERS.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed May 24, 1916. Serial N 0. 99,660.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHARLES KAISER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Sava ge, in the county of Montana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Measuring Devices for Liquid-Containers, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings. 7
This invention relates to an improved measuring device for liquid containers .and has for its primary object to provide an outlet or discharge faucet provided with means whereby the liquid may be discharged in predetermined uniform quantities.
It is another and more particular object of the invention to provide a device for the above purpose consisting of an outer cylindrical casing provided with inlet and dis charge openings, a longitudinally shiftable measuring cylinder mounted within said casing and having opposed ports, one of which is adapted to register with the inlet port of the outer casing in one position of the cylinder and the other with said discharge port in another position of the cylinder, and manually adjustable means mounted in the cylinder for varying the amount of liquid which may enter the cylinder.
It is a further general object of my invention to provide a measuring device for tanks or receptacles which is exceedingly simple and durable in its construction, hlghly serviceable and convenient for the purposes in view, and which may be manufactured at relatively small cost.
With the above and other objects in view, my invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination'and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described, claimed and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in whic Figure lis a perspective view of a portion of a tank or receptacle having my improved measuring device applied thereto;
Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view;
Fig. 3 is a similar .view showing the inner cylinder in its discharge position;
Fig. 4 1s a casing; and Fig. 5 is a similar view, partly broken away, of the inner cylinder.
Referring in detail to the drawing, 5 des-. ignates the wall of a tank or receptacle in which the outer cylindrical casing 6 is perspective view of the outer Richland and State of.
mounted and secured in any preferred manner at a point substantially midway between its ends. This casin is provided upon one side of its outwardly projecting portion with a dischar e opening indicated at 7, and upon the relatively opposite side of its inwardly projecting portion with an inlet opening 8. The outer end of this casin 6 is open, and within said casing a cylinder generally indicated by the numeral 9 is longitudinally shiftable, said cylinder projecting beyond the outer open end of the casing 6. Adjacent to its inner end, the cylinder 9 is provided with the diametrically opposed, longitudinally extending openin s 10,.and upon the inner closed end of sai outer end wall of said cylinder. It will be readily understood that by simply turning this screw, the head 13 may be moved and positioned with respect to the inner end wall of the cylinder 9. A suitable handle, indi cated at 15, is fixed to the outer endof the cylinder whereby said cylinder may be readily shifted longitudinally within the casing 6.
In the practical operation of the device, it will be understood that after the head 13 has been adjusted to its desired position,
when the cylinder 9 is in the position shown 1n Fig. 2, the liquid will enter from the tank 5 through the inlet opening 8 of the casing 6 and the opening 10 in the wall of the cylinder which coincides therewith. The eX- tension 11 of said cylinder projecting through the slot 12 in the inner end of the cylinder, at one side thereof, a longitudinally extend- Patented July 17, 1917.
casing, will effectually prevent turning movement of the cylinder or disalinement of the openings 10 with the openings 7 and 8. Thus, it will be seen that the liquid will flow into the space between the adjustable head 13 and the inner end wall of the cylinder 9. In order to discharge the liquid,
the cylinder 9 is simply pulled outwardly so as to register the other of the openings 1.0 with the discharge opening 7 of the easing 6. The desired quantity of liquid will then flow from the inner cylinder through the discharge opening into a suitable receptacle disposed beneath the same. In this manner, it will be apparent that the quan- 'tityof liquid dispensed may, be accurately predetermined by .the proper adjustment of 10 the head 13, and in successive operations of the device the liquid will be discharged in uniform quantities. The device being of exceedingly simple construction, it will be apparent that the same can be produced at i small manufacturing cost and readily applied to the ordinary liquid tank or vessel. Asv the outwardly projecting portion of the cylinder.9 is entirely closed, it will be seen that the contents of the tank are protected 20. against the entrance of dust or dirt and the device thus maintained in a thoroughly sanitary condition. The invention may, of course, be produced in various sizes, in aceordanee with the particular purpose for which it isto be used. The several parts -may also be easily and quickly assembled.
or disassembled when desired.
While I have shown and described the preferred form and construction of the vaf rious elements employed, it isto be understood that the same are susceptible of considerablemodification therein, and I, there- I fore, reserve the privilege of adopting all such legitimate changes as may be fairly 5 embodied within the spirit and scope of the invention as claimed.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I desire to claim and secure by Letters Patent is The combination with a liquid container, of a cylindrical casing fixed intermediate of its ends in the wall of the container and provided with an inlet port in its inner end portion and an outlet port on the diametrically opposite side of its outer end portion, a cylinder longitudinally shiftable within said casing and having an inner closed end and opposed openings in spaced relation to said end of the cylinder, said cylinder being provided upon its inner end cylinder and the adjustable head and the other opening of the cylinder registering with the outlet opening of the casing to (11$- 2 charge the liquid in another position of said cylinder. In testimony whereof I hereunto afiix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
