M. W. PITT FOUNTAIN SPRAY Filed March 11, 1924 ORNEY Patented Nov. 30, 1926.
Huntreu STATES MILLICENT WALDRON PITT, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
Application filed March 11, 1924. Serial No. 698,426.
The device, the subject of this invention, is intended as a spray or syringe and has for its principal object, the construction of a device of this nature, wherein treatments may be administered or had, of added antiseptic value; and another object is to provide means whereby a pressure can be applied to the force of the water or other solution being administered, a pressure greater than that obtained through gravity flow devices.
IVith these and other objects in view, the following is what I consider the best means of carrying but this invention and the accompanying drawing should be referred to for a complete understanding of the speciiication which follows.
In the drawings Fig. 1 is an elevation, partly in section, and shows my complete device.
' Fig. 2 is a plug or stopper, which may be used with the container.
Fig. 3 is an enlarged View, partly in section and shows the pressure pump.
Similar reference numerals indicate like parts in all the figures where they appear.
The container shown at 5 should be of glass and of any desirable size, though I prefer that my container should be'of generally oval shape and should hold about three quarts.
The container may be considered a glass bottle, having fiat sides and a screwthread ed neck or mouth is indicated at 6. Screwthreaded within the mouth 5 is a fitting conor of a. medicating mixture formed in tablet shape and quite readily dissolvable.
I provide another passage as shown at 12 in the member that I have called a fitting and formed integral with the fitting or secured thereto and communicating with the passage 12 is a pumplS. This pump may be anA ordinary air pump and is intended for the purpose of forcing air into the container 5 and upon the liquid therein.
A glass tube 14;, secured in the plug and 55 fitting 7, extends almost to the bottom of the container 5 and'it is through this glass tube that the liquid will pass as it is ejected from the container by the air pressure therein.
The end of the fitting to which I have previously referred terminates in a discharge passage 15 of reduced diameter and to this reduced portion 15, I attach a tube 16 which may be an ordinary rubber tube of any depsirable length. In the tube I may insert, a controlling valve 17 and to the free end of the tube, I may attach an applicator 18 of any desired shape or size. The applicator 18 should be formed of glass as should other applicators used with this device, as such are far more sanitary than applicators of other materials.
When the valve 17 closes, air pressure may be built up within the container 5 by means of the pump 13 and thereafter, when the valve 17 is open, the liquid within the container 5 will pass through the tube 14, into the passage 8 and washing past the disk 11 will dissolve this disk, carrying its medication through the tube 16 and applicator 18. Y
As before stated, the size of parts may be changed, the shape thereof may be varied and other modifications madeA within the scope of the appended claim.
At 19 I show a plug or stopper which may be employed with the container 5 as a substitute for the fitting previously described. This plug or stopper will be employed when it is desired to transport the kcontainer filled from place to place or when it is desired to use the container4 as a hot water bottle.
Having carefully and fully described my invention what I claim and desire to obtain is A fountain spray comprising a container, a tting screw-threaded into. the neck of said container and provided with a liquid plicator, a tube connecting said applicator with said fitting and a valve in said tube for controlling the flow therethrough. 10
