Dea 21 J. M. HOTHERSALL NOZZLE Filed March 10. 1920 Patented Dec. 21, 1926..

' UNITED STATES 1 4 3 PATENT OFFICE.

JOHN M. HOTHERSALL, or BROOKLYN, Nnw roux, A'ssIeNon 'ro AMERICAN CAN COMPANY, or NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION on NEW JERSEY.

NozzLn.

Application filed March 10, 1820. Serial No. 861,821.

This invention relates in general to pouring nozzles for cans and containers of various kinds, and has more particular reference to nozzles rovided for use on cans adapted to contain liquids, as oils and the,

ing against the end of the nozzle, together with means forholding the nozzle end against such packing with sufficient tightness; and contemplates also the provision of a face over which said nozzle end is moved slightly in the closing operation and in'such movement forming the face into a co-operating closing surface with said nozzle.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a nozzle so constructed that upon desired occasion the contents may be readily poured therefrom in minute quantities, as for example, a drop at a time.

Another object of the invention is the provision of a nozzle having these and other advantages, which will be cheap to construct, which will be of easy manipulation without particular instructions, and whichwill be compact and of pleasing appearance.

Numerous other objects and advantages will be apparent as it is better understood from the following description, which taken in connection with the accompanying drawing discloses a preferred embodiment thereof.

On the drawing,-

Figure l is a perspective View of a can provided with a nozzle embodying my invention;

Fig. 2 is a bottom plan view of the cap for said nozzle;

Fig. 3 is a section taken transversely of the nozzle and showing certain details of construction Fig. 4 is a section taken axially of the nozzle and showing the cap in place; and

Fig. 5. is an enlarged side elevation of the nozzle, parts being removed or broken away to disclose the relative positions of certain internal parts.

For the purpose of illustrating my invention I have shown on the drawing a can 11 of an usual or preferred construction and from w ich. a nozzle 19 extends u This erably of s nozzle; .cbmprises a cylindrical bo y, prefeet meta having an inwardly extending head or annular depression 13 near its top terminating in an edge 14 extending out beyond an upper rounded part 15. Just below the bead or depression 13 the materialof the nozzle is pressed outwardly at 16 to form hollow projecting shoulders 17 arranged at intervals about the circumference of the nozzle. A cap, indicated at 18, is provided with an outer cylindrical flange 19- adapted to extend down about th upper end of the nozzle and at the bottom th flange 19 is provided with inwardly extending flange parts 21 in number and arrangement correspondingto the number and ar'-' rangement of the shoulders 17. A disk, of cardboard or other material of appropriate yielding qualities 22 is positioned within the cap and upon this is provided a thinner paraflinecover disk 23. The dimensioning of the parts is preferably such as to permit the flange parts 21 to come into close registration with the underface of the shoulders 17 when the cap is pushed down tightly against the top of the nozzle. The outer surface of the cap is serrated or knurled to permit theimparting to it of a partial turn to bring the flange parts 21 under the shoulders to lock the ca in place. Each flange part 21 is provided with a depression 24 at one end to limit this turning movement when the shoulders are completely engaged with the flange parts 21. In this closing action the relatively thicker and more yielding cardboard disk 22 is compressed and the nozzle end slides easily over the parafline and forms an accurate seat.

Construction of the nozzle end is of peculiarly desirable form since it facilitates the pouring out of the can contents in accurately controllable small amounts. That is to say, the curved or beaded part 13 acts as a dam to hold back the contents when it is desired to pour material out a drop at a time as is not infr uently necessary in the pouring of olive 011 for salad purposes. That is to say, the can may be tilted until pouring is about ready to commence and the bod of the material is held back until it sllg tly It is-thought that the-invention and many of its attendant advantages will be understood from the foregoing description, and it will be apparent that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or sacrificing all of its material advantages, the form hereinbefore described being merely a. preferred embodiment thereof.

I claim:

1. A sheet metal nozzle for containers formed at its mouth with an inward peripheral bend to obstruct the flow of liquid which is desired to be delivered by drops, said inward bend terminating in an outwardly turned marginal lip which, together with the concave outside contour of the .ozzle at said bend, prevents the fluid from (inning down on the outside of the nozzle, said nozzle being formed with outwardly pressed and; projecting horizontal hollow shoulders, a gasket resting on said lip of the nozzle, and a sheet metal cap bearing on said gasket and having a peripheral flange depending below said shoulders, the lower part of said depending flange being bent inwardly at intervals to form horizontal flanges to engage under said shoulders of the nozzle, the said horizontal flanges being formed with upwardly bent parts in line with said shoulders to be arrested thereby when the cover is turned into sealing position.

2. A sheet metal nozzle for containers formed at its mouth with an inward peripheral bend to obstruct the flow of liquid which is desired to be delivered by drops, said inward bend terminating in an outs wardly turned marginal lip which, together with the concave outside contour of the nozzle at said bend, prevents the fluid fromrunning down on the outside of the nozzle, said nozzle being formed with outwardly pressed and projecting hollow shoulders, a gasket resting on said lip of the nozzle, and a sheet metal cap bearing on said asket and having a peripheral flange depen ing below said shou pending flange being bent inwardly at intervals to form flanges to engage under said shoulders of the nozzle, the said flanges being formed with upwardly bent parts in line with said shoulders to be arrested by said shoulders when the cover is turned into sealing position.

3. A sheet metal nozzle for containers formed at its mouth with a marginal lip and formed with outwardly bent and projecting hollow shoulders, a gasket resting on said lip of the nozzle, and a sheet metal cap bearing on said gasket and having a peripheral flange depending below said shoulders, the lower part of said depending flange being bent inwardly at intervals to form flanges to engage under said shoulders of the nozzle, the said flanges being formed with upwardly bent parts to be arrested by said shoulders when the cover is turned into sealing position.

4. A sheet metal nozzle for containers .formed at its mouth with an inward peripheral bend to obstruct the flow of liquid which is desired to be delivered by drops, said inward bend terminating in an upwardly and outwardly turned marginal lip which, together with the concave outside contour of the nozzle at said bend, prevents the fluid from running down on the outside of the nozzle and drains any residue back into the container, a gasket resting on the top of said lip of the nozzle, and a sheet metal cap bearing on said gasket, said nozzle and cap having detachable interlocking means to hold the cap pressed down on said gasket.
