This invention relates to valve means for measuring and dispensing vfluids. ln some of its more limitedV applications itrelates to the dispensing otgas charged carbonated 5 liquids and in others to the measuring'of liqy uids which are not charged with-a gas.

In the drawings accompanying and Jforming a part of thisV specification. Y z Figure 1 shows oneembodiment vof my in- '10 vention in position Aon one Vform ofreceptacle. Figure 2 is a side elevation view taken on vline 2.-'2 of Figure 1; -f l Figure 3 shows the device of Figures 1 and 2 with clampingylever in"positio'n prelimioperation. Y Figure 4 is a lside elevational viewt'aken substantially onlie 4--4 of Figure 1; e Figure '5 is a central sectional view taken on line 5-5 ofv Figure 1 with the parts shown in their normal-position showing an embodiment 'modilied as tocertain parts; Fi'gurefisl a view corresponding to Figure "5 but showing anotherniodified embodiment of my invention; .y I e Y f Figure 8.'s `a view corresponding to Figure 5 but showingr still another modiied embodi- -ment of my invention. A Referring' first' to Figures 1 designates a shouldered, stopper like,'re 'ceptacle-sealingl Vmember in sealing position with the outletl opening or mouth of a receptacle 2v. This member. 1. i's disposed .in and carried by a cap Sprovided with a clamping lever 4 pivoted thereto and having inturned projections 5 to engage with the underside of vthe shoulder 6 of the receptacle 2.and press the member 1 into position to close the outletopening of the receptacle. The annular shoulder 7 on member 1'eXtends over the top surface of the lshoulder '6 and additionally seals the receptacle. The lever 4 is provided with a notch 8 in its lower end so that it may be used to open a receptacle, for example, to remove a crimpedrcap of the ordinary well knownform. l n A tube 9 closes at one end by a pressed in -f flattened plug 10 and carrying at its other be moved longitudinally through the cap 3V by exerting on the'receptacle; j Figure 6 is-a View similar to Figure 5 but f of 'my invention f ytion of the bore spaced from the ends;

end a pressed on, chambered'head -11 havingl 192s." serial No. 278,470.

a lznurled liange 12 extends slidably androtatably through cap 3 and bore 5() of the member Thehead 11 carries a pressedin tube.. 13 'which communicates through the head 11 witlifthe interior of the tube 9; Near the lower or' inner end of the tubef9 an inlet 'opening 14 is formedv laterally through the 'side wall of the tube, which 'opening is 'normally closed kby the sealing member 1, Vthe V tube 9 -being normally retained in the posi- 60 tion shown in Figure 5 byV reason of' the spring 15 which is compressed between the,y head 11 and cap?) about tube 9.

" It' willbe understood that the tube9 may `pressure on head 11 suiicient to 4compress the spring` 15 as in Fig14 and also vthat it maybe rotated in the cap as indicated in Figures 1 and 3.' The sealingmember lis retained in cap 3 by the tube 9, plug 10 and spring'15. u

`As best Ishown in Fig. 5 the upper end Vo' the bore-50 is'enlarged to provide anannular recess 51. Ag relatively large annular recess 52 is provided in the intermediate porrEhe Vmaterial intermediate the recesses is thus adapted toform an annularlip 53 in con-k f tact with the tube 9 the resilience of which is greater than the remainder of the member 1, and which is adapted to bend slightly in the" direction of Vreciprocation of the memberi9. e I In Vusing the device shown in Figures 1 to 5` the receptacle is lirst opened as by employing the notch 8 on lever 4 to remove the cap orl other sealing means and then the sealing member' 1 is inserted in the outlet opening of the receptacle and the device is pressed down substantially into the position shown in Figure 3 after which the lever 4 is brought down' intotheposition of Figure 1 thereby yiorcing theV sealing membertightly into the rmouth of the receptacle.v lVhen liquids are rvto' be` measuredv the receptacle may be in- 95 y'verted and pressure is l'applied on the head 11y to expose the opening114` to the liquid .which will pass out through'tubesQ 'andl In this manner the liquid may be measured Lio Vbonatedli uids.theli uidvma be discharged cl Cl Y s rom the receptacle under considerable force if, after the device is in the position shown in Figure 5 the receptacleY is shaken and in* verted and then the head 11 is pressed down to expose the opening 14 to the liquid.

As best illustrated'in Fig. '5 Vthe pressure that exists above carbonated beverages, is

adapted to press the end of the plugf 10, t-

getlier with the tension exerted y-bjy the spring 15, against the bottom ofthe member `A1 which beingkresil'lent yis compressed and restricted vby the wall of the containerand is brought intoiiuid tight engagement with the outer wall tube 9 to assist'in'the sealing of theopennig In the modification shown in Figure 6 the cap 3 carries ya pivoted lever-16 the lower part Voirwhich lever is formed asa corkscrew 17.

The sealing member 1.8 which is carried by lcap V3 is provided with an enlarged central recess 19 which is exposed to the contents voff the receptacle. A'tube 20 closed fat? its inner end byplug 24 projects i'oincap, lia's a hea-d 21at its euterend'andfa tube 22 coinmunieating withY tube 210 vthrough the head. The head 21 is extended toward -thecap 3 to form a :partial housing` for 4the spring 23 er which surrounds 4thetube `20. The head has a limited movement which, 'however,=is sufficient to expose the lateral opening'V 24 through the tub-e120 to iiqufid in th'e receptacle.

The embodiment of niyinvention :sho wn in Figure ff' vcomprises -a sealing member 25 in the form of a washer or gasket to fcofver the inouth of receptacle. The'gaslret is Carried bya cap 26 having an integrally formed 1depending flange 27!" shaped to engage under the Ashoulder surrounding the mouth of the receptacle. Thisfflange may extend "for a considerable dis-tance around the receptacle, it' desired. A clamping lever 28 is pivoted to the Cap '26 and yhas Van arin suit-ably disposed to engage under the shoulderof the Areceptlacle and :securely Clamp CapV 26 and gasket' -on the receptacle. A Ytube 30 extendssli dably and-rotatably 'through the :gasketand cap -26 anfd is )provided with' a pressed ron attenedg-plug 31 at yits lower end,

i 'and apressed on hollow-head'jS-Q iat it-s 'upper end `which vhea-d carries `pressed therein Ithe tube33. A rsprin'g'34 serves to maintain the Y 'tube 30 in the position shown in this figure wiheire the inlet openingl off 'thetube 30`is disposed inandelcsed by thegas'lret. The

operation of this is substantially the @aar frameset-aus.'

The inbeleliinelit of my-inveirtins'hwh i'in saine :as been described hereii1"-ab'oi* e fior Figure 8 has a cap 36 provided with a threaded flange 37 to engage with a threaded split-ring 38 by means of which the device is secured to a receptacle. The cap 36 also has a lever arm 39 which may be used in screwing the cap 36 to the ring 38, the latter having-a knurled edge which ,.permits it to be .held against frotation and the arm may be used in opening the receptacle, for which purpose itmay be provided with a notch similar lto notch 8 of Figure 2, or with a corkscrew suoliV as is shown at 17 in Figure 6 or other si'iita'b'le receptacle 'opening means. The tubes 40 `and 417, plug 42 and head 43 and spring 44 are similar to the corresponding par-tsfof Fig. 7. Y Y

It will be understood that hecorksere-W 17 may be substituted orthe corresponding `lever and opener 4of any othe other "figures and vice versa. The `head QEZinay likewise be Vsubstituted for-the various heads ofthe other figures .and vice versa.

The sealingm'eiribersl, 518, 25 anc-136 ma?)y be made `ofrubber or other suitable material an-dtlie lremaininl suitable metal. l
