communication with t 9 12 1 1 1 Positi n th the spr In carrying out the embodiment of the invent-ion'shown in Figures 1 and 2, I rovlde a container comprisin a tubular body p rt n 7 h ving n 8 an. 9 u he e'- to. A plunger or piston 10 arranged with suitable packing is slidably mounted in the container andse arates the container in two hambe s, the amb r t on id o th piston constituting a liquid carrying chamer, as at 11, while a spring 12 is mounted piston todrive or actuate t e piston to place the. liquid in the chamber 11 under press on.

A casing 13 has screw threaded connection at one end with a bow on the iston, as shown at 14, to pro'ect. into tlie spring carrying chamber of t e container, the opposite end of the casing being closed by a s p 5 o P vi a. hamb r hi may b n the nature of a compression chamber in liq d ryin chamber 11 through ports 16 in the iston and into which casin chamber the liquid is. discharged when tiie liquid in chamber ll'is placed under compression by the iston through the influence of the spring 1g,

T qu i ehe g 0 the exteri of the. container thnough a nozzle 17 in communication with the chamber 13 through a t e 1 s d in nd en tu in a con,- tinuation of the nozzle orifice, said to ing through a perforation in the flanged bushing 19 secured in and extendin through an pening in e o tain en 8 an pack ng 0 carr d y anged m mber a ta h d t the us ing 19 a d tub als t nd ng ro gh a tu ng ox 2 n th end of the casing 13 into the chamber in said casing.

Thespring 12 is confined between the conm n e 8 and an annu ar flanged m m e 23 secured to the casing 13. To place the spring under tension or to contract the same an opening is arranged in the container end 9 having a flanged tubular member or sleeve 24 s cured h re n o e passage f m n such as a r i ngag t pis on med a nismi, Th slee q2t also serves a th i le op ning tor the hqnid a mg h mbe .1 and 15 cl sed by a @1 2 awns th e ded onnec ion w th Po on of the sl eve si tend ng. ey nd he a d 9. To e ur h ename e an abutm n 2 is arrange on t e d scharg n he hamb a h op posits side of th a tube 18 to extend diametrically opposite from the tube, which abut-ment is adapted to pass through opposite slots 26 in the Wall of an opening in the end of a casing 27 mounted axially in the piston or plunger and which abutment is adapted to engage within said casing at opposite sides of the opening therein, as shown in Figure 1.

To prevent leakage and evaporation of the liquid through the outlet tube 18 a spring influenced closure 28 is arranged in the easing 27 to engage the end of the tube, the tube being releasably retained in position with the closure in engagement therewith by lugs 28 extending oppositely from the nozzle, which are adapted to pass through notches in a flanged member 29 of angular shape in cross section arranged at the outer side of the end 8 of the container and to engage below the flange of said member by giving the nozzle a slight rotary movement, which movement of the nozzle is facilitated by portions 30 projecting laterally therefrom to form a hand-grip. This rotary movement of the nozzle also serves to cause the tube abutment 26 to engage at the inner side of the wall of the opening in the casing 27.

In this position of the parts the chamber 11 may be supplied with the liquid to be ejected from the container through the sleeve olpening 24, such liquid also passing through t e piston ort 16 into the chamber of casing 13. A ter the liquid carrying and piston chambers 11 and 13 have been filled with liquid the closure cap 25 is secured in place when the'device is in condition for operation. To use the device the nozzle is .given a partial rotation to free thenozzle lugs 28 from the locking flange 29, this movement positioning the abutment 26 on the discharge tube 18 to permit the same to pass through the opening in the casing 27 by a longitudinal movement of the nozzle freeing the end of the tube from the closure 28. The outward movement of the nozzle is limited by a stop member 31 on the tube engaging the flanged member 21. The opening in the bushing 19 through which the tube passes is of greater diameter than the tube leaving a space between the tube and the wall of the inlet opening, this space being sealed in the normal inoperative position of the parts shownin Figure 1 b a disk of sealing ma terial 32, such as cor seated in the bottom of a recess in the nozzle, and by an annular sealing member 33, which may also be cork, engaging about the wall of said nozzle recess and retained therein by serrating the surface of the side wall of said recess, said annular sealing member being adapted to engage about the bushing 19. The space between thedischarge tube and wall of the bushing opening is connected to the spring carrying chamber of the container t rough perforations in a disk 34 in the packing member 21, said disk having the peripheral wall arranged of concave shape to provide a space between the periphery of said disk and the side wall ofthe flange of the member 21 with which ports 35 in the flange of the member 21 communicate, whereby the spring carrying chamber of the container is open to the atmosphere during the discharge of the liquid from the container to permit of entrance of'air' into such chamber to displace the liquid discharged from the container and prevent the creating of a vacuum which may have a tendency to retard the movement of the piston. By the provision of the casing chamber 13 there will be a supply of liquid at the entrance end of the discharge tube 18 whereby the discharge of the liquid may be effected inwhatever position the container may be held.

A drain plug 80 is provided for removing any liquid which may leak by the piston. This plug also serves to permit air to enter the spring chamber and for this purpose a perforate cap 81 is threaded on the outer end of the plug. The perforation in the cap is closed by valve 82 positioned in the tubular portion of the plug and normally urged by a spring83 to engage a seat arranged about the inner end of the cap perforation.

The structure shown in Figures 3 and 4 is the same as that shown in Figures 1 and 2 with the exception that the piston mechanism has a tubularmember-37 secured at one end to the side of thepiston opposite to the casing 13 and slidably engages in the stutting box 38 secured in an opening in one end of the container, which tubular member is projected from the container as the piston mechanism is actuated by the spring to dis-.

char e the liquid from the container. This mem er 37 also serves as 'a meansto move the piston to position to contract the piston actuating spring 12", and the piston is retained in such position by locking lugs 38' extending laterally from an annular flanged member 39 secured to the outer end of the member 37 assing through notches in a flanged mem er 41 arranged on the end of the container and caused to engage below the flange of said member. The flanged menr ber 39 has a portion 4.0 to engage in the tubular member 37 to position the same relative to such tubular member. By the arrangement of the flanged member 39 as described there is provided an annular recess 42 the member 39 being in the nature of a cap to engage the outer end of the stuffing box with a disk 43 seated in the recess portion of cap to seal the stuffing box. To seal the outlet tube during the inactive condition of the device to prevent leakage and evaporation of theliquid in the container/through said outlet tube a spring influenced valve 45 is carried in a recess of a in 46 fi xed in the tubular member 37 an with which valve the and in communication with the container through a tube 48 passing through the valve plug and communicating with a port49 through the piston. When the piston mechanism is in spring contracting position the air inlet port 44 is sealed by the stufiing box 38, as shown in Figure 3. The tubular member 37 mayalso have a port 50 for the flow of the liquid in the chamber of the casing 13*" through'thepiston port 47. v

To set the device in operation all that is necessary isto give the tubular member 3711 partialrotation which is facilitated by the arranging of a hand-grip 51 at the outer side i of the locking member to: cause the locking lugs 38 to register with the notches in the flanged member .41. The GOIIt-alIIBIwlSRI ranged with a filler opening 52 which is closed by a removable cap 53. i

From the foregoingdescription it will be obvious that in the normalcondition of the device the liquid is not under compression,

the piston mechanismbeing releasably locked in position with the spring contracted and though the spring is exerting a force upon the piston mechanism this is notapplied to the liquid. However, as soon as the piston mechanism is released the tension of the closed by a valve 82 contained within the tubular portion of the plug and normally urged to position to engage a seat arranged about the inner end of the cap perforation by a spring 83. Should a vacuum for any reason be created in the spring chamber of the container this vacuum will unseat the valve 82 and permit the entrance of air in said chamber. To drain liquid from said chamberthe cap is removed.

Having thus described my invention, I claim:
