UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
CHARLES GUERITEY, OF PAS SAIC, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOB, TO PASSAIC METAL WARE COMPANY, OF PASSAIC, NEW JERSEY, A CORPORATION OF NEW JERSEY.
DREDGE OR SIFTER-CAN.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Nov. 2, 1920.
Application filed March 26, 1920. Serial No. 368,824.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that 1, CHARLES GUERITEY, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Passaic, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dredges or Sifter-Cans, of which the following is a specification.
The object of this invention relates to improvements in a can or receptacle with an outlet adapted to permit sifting or pouring out of contents thereof, as well as to close the outlet according to the position thereover of a slidable closure cap.
The invention embodies novel details of improvement that will be more fully hereinafter set forth and then pointed out in the claims.
Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, wl1erein- I Figure l is a perspective view of a can embodying the improvements showing the cap in the central closing position;
F igs. 2 and 3 are plan views showing the cap in different positions;
Figs. 4 and 5 are sections on the lines 4, 4 and 5, 5 respectively of Figs. 2 and 3; 4
Fig. 6 is an inverted view of the cap;
Fig. 7 is a cross section on the line 7, 7 in Fig. 2;
Fig. 8 is a detail diagrammatic view of the can neck;
Fig. 9 is an enlarged perspective View illustrating the improvements upon a slip cover on the can, showing the improvements depressed in the cover;
Fig. 10 is a section on the line 10, 10, in Fig. 9; and
Fig. 11 is a sectional detail showing the improvements raised from the cover.
Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the several views.
The numeral 1 indicates a can or recep-' tacle, which may be an ordinary tin can, hav. ing a top or cover 2. The cover 2 may be secured upon the can body by double seaming (Figs. 1 to 5), or by soldering, or in any other usual way, or the cover may be a slip cover having the outer flange or skirt 2 to be removably attached to the can body, as in Figs. 9, 10 and 11. The cover 2 is provided with a neck 3 raised from the plane of the cover, which neck may be drawn from the material of the cover or secured thereto otherwise. The neck 3 is provided with a central outlet opening 4 defined by a flange 5 extending inwardly all around the opening. Two opposite sides of the neck at its outer end are provided with outwardly extending guides 6, (Figs. 7 and 8) which may be formed by suitably bending the metal of the neck. At 7 is a cap or closure mounted to slide to and fro on the neck over the marginal flange 5 to control opening 4. The edges 7 of cap 7, on two opposite sides, are bent under to engage and slide along the guides 6 of the neck to slidably retain said cap on the neck over opening 4. The bent edges 7 form grooves, the material serving to frictionally retain the slidable cap 7 in set position on neck 3. The metal at the op. posite ends or edges of cap 7 is bent 1aterally at 8, 8 to form'stops to engage the corresponding ends of neck 3 to retain the cap thereon and limit the sliding or endwise movement of the cap on the neck. The guiding edges 7 and one of the stops 8 or 8 may be formed on cap 7, the latter then may be slid upon neck 3, and the other stop may be bent toward the cover to confine the cap on the neck. The mid-portion 7 of cap 7 is imperforate to a sufficient extent to entirely cover and close the opening 4 of the neck when the cap is in an intermediate osition thereon, (Figs. 1, 9, 10 and 11). ear one end of cap 7 sifter holes 9 are provided that are between the imperforate part 7 of the cap and one edge stop 8 thereof and in such position that when the cap is shifted from its central closing position the sifter holes will be over the adjacent portion of neck opening 4 to permit sifting contents of the can through said opening and sifter holes. The stop 8 on the cap near the sifter holes limits movement of the cap so that the sifter holes will be over opening 4, as illustrated .in Fig. 5. At 10 is a pouring opening in cap 7 located adjacent to its end opposite sifter holes 9 and in such position regarding the central imperforate portion 7 of the cap as not to register with neck opening 4 when it is in the central closing position over opening 4, (Figs. 1, 9, 10 and 11). When the cap 7 is slid along neck 3 to bring pouring opening 10 over neck opening 4 the adjacent stop 8 will limit the sliding of the neck to position the opening 10 over opening 4, to, permit contents of the can to be poured therefrom through said openings.
The cover or top 2 may be depressed centrally within the top edge of the can so that the neck 3 and cover 7 may be substantially flush with the top edges of the cover to permit convenient packing of the cans, or the cover may have a flat or flush top with the neck and its cap protruding outwardly, as in Fig. 11.
My improvements are simple and cheap to manufacture, readily operable and not liable to get out of order.
Having thus described my invention, What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A receptacle provided with a neck having a centralopening, and a cap slidably supported on said neck, said cap having an imperforate mid-portion and having sifter perforations and a pouring opening respectively on opposite sides of said imperforate portion to register with said neck opening in different positions of said cap on said neck.
2. A receptacle provided with a neck having a central opening, and a cap slidably supported on said neck, said cap having an imperforate mid-portion and having. sifter perforations and a pouring opening respectively on opposite sides of said imperforate portion to register with said neck opening in different positions of said cap on said neck, said cap having stops at opposite ends to engage said neck to position the sifter perforations and the pouring opening respectively over the neck opening.
3. A receptacle provided with a neck having an inwardly extending flange defining a top opening in the neck, guides on opposite sides'of the neck, and a cap having side. edges cooperative with said guides to slidably retain the cap on the neck, said cap having an imperforate midportion to Wholly close said neck opening when the cap is in an intermediate position on the neck, said cap being provided with sifter perforations on one side of said imperforate mid-portion to register with said neck opening when the capis in one position on the neck, said cap also having a pouring opening on another side of said imperforate midportion to register with said neck opening when the cap is in another position on the neck.
4. A receptacle provided with a neck having an inwardly extending flange defining a top opening in the neck, guides on opposite sides of the neck, and a cap having side edges cooperative with said guides to slidably retain the cap on the neck, said cap having an imperforate midportion to wholly close said neck opening when the cap is in an intermediate position on the neck, said cap being provided with sifter perforations on one side of said imperforate mid-portion to register with said neck opening when the cap is in one position on the neck, said cap also having a pouring opening on another side of said imperforate mid-portion to register with said neck opening when the cap is in another position on the neck, said cap having stops at-the edges adjacent to said sifter perforations and said pouring opening to engage said neck to position said perforations and pouring opening over the neck openingin different positions of said cap on the neck.
Signed at Passaic, in the county of Passaic and State of New Jersey this 24th day of March, A. D. 1920.
