AssIGNonsTo THE omo `efi.".E.^isE COMPANY, or LoUDoNvILLE, omo, A coRroEA- GREASE cAN Application led November 20, 1926. Serial lo. 149,679.
The invention relates to cans, .for containving grease and the like, and for use in connection with a machine or press whereby grease may be ejecteddirectly from the can by the cmachine or press without transferring the grease from the can into the press.
The objects of the improvementl are to provide a novel, economical, efficient andl convenient grease can as. aforesaid, and adapted for ejecting all the greasev from the can by the machine or press.
These objects are attained by a construction and arrangement which may be stated in general terms as including a tubular can body having secured thereto one, preferably fiat end and a threaded ojpning therein fitted with' a screw cap, anot er preferablyl flat plunger end arranged to be moved in the can body by a suitable machine or press for ejecting grease in the can through the .threaded opening in the opposite flat end, and means associated with the preferably ilat plunger end for normally preventing withdrawal of the same from the can body and adapted for permitting association of the plunger end with'the machine or press for moving the plunger to eject grease from the can through the threaded opening in the aforesaid flat end.
A preferred embodiment of the invention and several modified forms thereof, are illusv trated in the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, in which:-
Figure 1 is a longitudinal axial cross sectional view of the preferred form of the improved grease can, and having means integral with the plunger end and cooperating with the can body for preventing withdrawal of the plunger;
Fig. 2, a longitudinal axial cross sectional view similar to Fig. 1, illustrating a modified form of the invention, in which the plunger end is normally prevented from withdrawal by a separate slip lid;
Fig. 3, a longitudinal axial cross sectional view of another modified form of the invention, in lwhich the flat lunger end is normally prevented from withdrawal by a separate `friction lid; and
Figi 4, a longitudinal axial cross sectional View of still another modified form of the invention wherein the flat lunger end is normally prevented from wlthdrawal by a` screw 11d.
Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the drawings.
The preferred form of the improved grease can 10, illustrated; in Fig. 1, includes a tubular can body 11 having a smooth inner surface and having secured thereto preferably at the bottom as by soldering or other well-known. fasteningmeans, a. preferably flat end 12 having a plane inner surface and having an opening 13 therein providedwith a removable closure, which `is preferably in the form of a screw cap 14 removably screwed upon a threaded extension 15 of the opening 13.-
Av preferably flat plunger en'd 16, having a preferably upwardly extending peripheral flange 17, is arranged at the top of the can body tobe moved` preferably downwardly in the can body by a suitablemachine or press for ejecting grease, and the like, which may be contained in the can, through the opening 13, the screw cap 14 having been removed. Means are associated with the preferably flat plunger end and the can body for normally preventing withdrawal of the plunger end from the can body after the plunger end has been inserted in place, but at the same timepermitting the preferably downward movement of the plunger in the can body to eject grease and the like from the can as aforesaid.
The preferred means preventing with,- drawal of the plunger end from the can include tongues 18 struck outl from the flange from the threaded extension 13 of the opening and the flat plunger end y16 may be i moved in the can bod by the press to eject means of the plunger end 16 from the can body grease and the like rom the canthrough the opening 13 in the flat end 12.
The stationary end 12 of the can body being flat, and the movable plunger end 16 being preferably flat and parallel to the stationary end 12it is possible to eject all of the grease contained in the can from the same.
Grease packed in the improved cans as aforesaid, may be very economically used since the grease may be removed from the can in any desired quantity Without scoop' ing, and without disturbing the remaining grease contents of the can. The modied form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 2, is made up of parts similar to the referred form, excepting that the frdr normally preventing Withdrawal consists of a separate slip lid 2O for the upper end of the 4can body.
Likewise, the modilied form of the invention illustrated in Fig. 3, is made up of 23 associated with the threaded upper end o of the can body.
parts similar to the preferredform, exceptl ing that themeans for normally preventing Withdrawal of the plunger end 16 from the can body consists of a separatefriction lid 21 associated with a friction fflange 22 secured to the upperA end of the can body.
Andfinally, the modified form of the invention illustrated in Fi 4, is made up of parts similar \to the pre ered form, excepting that-the means for normally preventing Withdrawal of the plunger end 16 from the can body consists of a separate screw lid We claim:k
body-having a smooth inner surface,'an end aving an opening therein and aremovable closure for the opening, a plunger end in the can body adapted for movement therein for ejecting grease and the lkefrom the can through the opening, and tongues on the plunger end cooperating with openings in f the can body for normally preventin 'thgrwal of the plunger end from t e can In testimony that We claim the above, We
have hereunto subscribed our names.
