GEORGE D. BLOOHEB, OF MARTINSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA.
IMPROVEMENT IN ADJUSTABLE HVDRANTS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 161,740, dated April 6, 1875; application filed February 13, 1875.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE D. BLOCHER, of Martinsburg, in the county of Berkeley and State of West Virginia, have invented a new and valuable Improvement in Adjustable Hydrant; and I do hereby declare that thefollowing is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings making a part of this specification, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon.
Figure 1 of the drawing is a representation of a longitudinal vertical section of my hydrant. Figs. 2, 3, and 4 are horizontal sectional views of the same; and Figs. 5 and 6 are detail views.
This invention relates to hydrants; and my object is to provide a\vaste- )assage for allowing water to escape from one side of the cock when the flow from the nozzle of the discharge-pipe is out off, thus preventing the formation of ice in said pipe during the winter months.
In the annexed drawings A designates the case of the hydrant, on the base or floor of which the body B of the cock is rigidly secured. This portion B is constructed with a tubular neck, a, to which the service-pipe is suitably secured; and at right angles to this neck a a wastepassage, 1), is made through the body B. O designates the tubular cockplug, having a hole, 0, through one side, which can be made to register with the neck a, or with the passage 12, by turning the plug 0. D designates the discharge pipe, which rises from the plug 0, and passes through the top of the case A, and has a discharge-nozzle, d,
on its upper end. E designates a semicircular bridge, which keeps the plug 0 in its seat, and on which may be printed the words Winter and Summer, for the purpose of showing which way to turn the cock-plug when it is desired to allow water to escape from pipe D through the waste-passage b. Two holes, 0 e, are made through the bridge E, on opposite sides of the center thereof, through one or the other of which a pin, f, is passed, against which the nozzle cl abuts when it is in a position for drawing water, and the hole 0 in plug 0 registers with the neck a, as
shown in Figs. 1 and 4.
During the summer months, when the wastepassage is not brought into play, the checkpinfis inserted in to the hole 6; but when there is danger of water freezing in the dischargepipe D the pin f is adjusted in the hole 6, and the hole 0 in the cock-plug can be made to register with the waste-passage for allowing water to escape from the discharge pipe through said passage.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
In a hydrant having a waste-passage, b. a tubular plug, 0, discharge-pipe D, and nozzle 61, the bridge E, perforated at e e, and removable pin f, all combined in the manner described. 1
In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
GEO. D. BLOOHER.
