To (4Z5 whom it may concern.
Be it known that 1. Louis STIRLING HAnnnLL, a citizen of the United States, and resident oi? Baton Rouge, in the parish of East Baton Rouge and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful limproven'ients in Oilcrs, of which the following isa s iecification. a
This invention relates to liquiddispensers and more particularly to a means tor dispensing a lubricant in desired quantities.
Briefly stated an important object of this invention is to provide a lubricant dispenser having simple and reliable means whereby the oil cups located at an elevated point on an engine or other piece of machinery may be conveniently lubricated at frequent in tervals from a point below.
A further object is to provide a lubricator of the character specified which is of highly simplified construction, simple to operate and cheap to manufacture.
Other objects and advantages will be apparent during the course of the following description.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same,
Figure 1 is a side elevation of the improved lubricant dispenser in its inoperative position.
Figure 2 is a fragmentary side elevation of the improved lubricator in its operative position.
Figure 3 is a fragmentary rear elevation of the improved lubricator.
In the drawing wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred embodiment of the invention the numeral 5 designates a standard which consists of a plurality of sections joined by coupling members or nipples 6. Of course, any desired number of sections may be employed and consequently the standard or staff 5 may be made of variable length.
Figures 1 and 2 illustrate that the upper portion of the standard 5 is provided with a loop or yoke having an attaching stem 11 secured to the standard by means of the fastening member 12. In carrying out the invention the lubricant container 14 is provided at its upper end with a pair of apertured cars 15 rotatably mounted upon a transversely extending rod or pivot pin 16,-
the ends 0; which are securely connected to the upstanding sides of the yoke .10.
With reference to Figure 1 it will be seen that the lubricant container 1% which rotatably connected to the pivot element 16 is provided with a discharge spout 20 by means of which the lubricant may be discharged into the tunnel 22. The tunnel 22 encloses the major portion of the lubricant container 14 and is provided with an outwardly inclined discharge spout 25 by means of which oil discharged into the funnel may be supplied to oil cups at elevated points.
The oil container 14 may be swung about the axis of the pivot element 16 by a cable 125 connected to the casing at 26 to the lower end of the lubricant container. The cable 125 is also trained about a pulley 28 carried by the depending terminal portion 29 ot a laterally projecting arm 30 of the yoke 10. In carrying out the invention the lower portion of the cable 125 is trained about a pulley or reel secured to any desired portion of the standard 5 by means of a bracket 36.
In use a lubricant is supplied to the container 14: by means of a filler branch 10 and the discharge spout 25 may be positioned at the desired point for discharging the lubricant into the oil cup or the like of the machinery. The reel 35 may now be rotated by means of a handle 4:2 and the oil. container will be tilted for discharging the oil into the funnel 22 whereupon it will flow into the spout 25 and the final lubricant receiver.
With reference to the foregoing description taken in connect-ion with the accompanying drawings it will be seen that the oil cups at elevated points may be conveniently lubricated and that the device is not likely to get out of order.
Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is 2- 1. A lubricant dispenser comprising a standard, a yoke connected to the upper portion of the standard, and having spaced sides, a pivot pin connected to the spaced sides, a lubricant containing receptacle having apertured ears rotatably connected to said pivot pin between the sides of said yoke, and a funnel rigidly connected to said yoke and having a depending spout adapted for discharging theoil into an oil receiver.
2. A lubricant dispenser comprising a pivot rod, said lubricant container being rovided with a dischar e snout a funnel rigidly connected to said yoke and having a dependlng discharge member, and a flexible element connected to the lower end of said lubricant container and having sliding connection with said arm.
3. A lubricant dispenser comprising a standard, a loop-shaped yoke rigidly connected to the upper portion of said standard and having a rearwardly projecting arm, a pivot rod connected at its ends to the sides of said yoke, alubricant container having ears rotatably connected to said pivot rod, said lubricant container being provided with a discharge spout, a tunnel rigidly connected to said yoke and having 5 a depending discharge member, a flexible 1 ,avassa element connected to the lower end of said lubricant container and having sliding concant container having its upper end-provided with ears rotatably connected to said pivot rod, sa d lubricant containerbeing provided with a discharge spout, a funnei connected to said yoke and having adis-V charge member, a flexible element conn cted to the lower end of said lubricant container and hav ng sliding connection wlth said arm, a reel having connection with said standard, the lower portion'o'i said cable being trainedabout said reel whereby the oil container may be tilted by rotating said LOUIS STIRLING HARRELL.
