UNITED STATES BURTON P. HALL, OF FANWOOD, JERSEY.
ATOMIZER OR SPBAYER.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented. Nov. 2, 1920.
Application as May 3,1919. Serial No. 294,597.
To allwhom z'tmag conerm. .Be it known that I, BURTON P. HALL, a
citizen of the United States, residing at Fana wood, in the county of Union and State of New Jersey, have invented a new and useful Atomizer or Sprayer, of which the following Second. To avoid the use of any safety valves or similar contrivancesmn the container of the liquid to be sprayed or on the air compressor or any other part of the apparatus.
Third. To avoid any operating valves on the spraying nozzle or air nozzle, and
Fourth. To have the atomizer simple, durable and inexpensive.
ll attain these objects by the device illustrated in the accompanying drawing or by any mechanical equipment or obvious modification of the same. I
The drawing represents a vertical crosssection of the container and operatinghandle of my atomizer or sprayer and showing sundry parts in elevation.
11 designates the container, 12 the cap oi the same, through which passes the rising tube 13, which terminates in the discharge nozzle i l.
15 is a column shown as secured to said cap 12 and supporting one end of the air or gas tube 16, which terminates in the blast nozzle 17 the other end ofsaid tube 16 comthereof with the interior of said member i9, and at the other end with the flexible tube 93, which may be connected to a suitable source of compressed air or gas, such as an air compressor or gas generator.
It is evident that, when air or gas passes through the tube 23 and nipple 22 into the interior of said member 19, it will not enter said tube 16 as long as said opening 20 is uncovered; but, when the operator closes said opening either by means of his thumb or in any other way, the air or gas will pass through said tube 16 and issue from the blast nozzle 17, thereby inducing a current of the liquid from the container 11 through the tube 13 and nozzle 14 and atomizing the same.
This apparently simple expedient of keeping the opening 20 normally open enables the operator to proceed withhis work intermittently, as may be required by the task he may have, and have the entire outfit safe without taking care to stop the gas generator or air compressor and without any safety valves or other contrivances.
Manychanges could be made in the dey tails of my atomizer or sprayer without departing from the main scope of my inventi'on;'1, do not therefore restrict myself to the details as shown in the drawing; but I intend to include also all mechanical equivalents and reasonably obvious modifications of the same.
What I claim'as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is p In 'anatomizer or sprayer the combination of a liquid container,a rising tube for said liquid, a blast tube for atomizing said liquid, a conduit furnishing a continuous supply. of compressed gas, a hollow member communicating with said supply and with said blast tube, said member being adapted to be used as a handle for said sprayer and to permit a continuous flow of said gas therethrough, and said member terminating at its upper end in an opening, which is normally open and adapted to be closed by the hand or the operator holding said handle, -thereby directing the flow of said gas .into said blast tube and thereby enabling said supply ofcompressed gas to be continuous, while the action of said sprayer is inter-.
