SIPHON Filed Feb. 12, 1929 Patented May 5, 1931 UNITED STATES MARTIN IB. PALIOH, F HOUSTON, TEXAS, ASSIG'NOR OF ONE-FOURTH TO B. W. BRENNEMAN, OF DALLAS COUNTY, TEXAS SIPHON Application filed February 12, 1929. Serial No. 339,441.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in a siphon.
One object of the invention is to provide a device of the character described particularly designed for use in transferring liquid from a higher to a lower level and embodies means whereby the flow of fluid through the siphon from a higher level may be started.
Another object of the invention is to provide a device of the character described which is also capable of use for pumping liquid.
With the above and other objects in View the invention has particular relation to certain novel features of construction, opera- L) tion and arrangement of parts an example of which is given in this specification and illustrated in the accompanying drawing where- The figure shows a longitudinal sectional View of the device.
In the drawing the numeral 1 designates a barrel, one end of which is closed preferably by means of removable screw cap 2 which is formed fiat to provide a supporting base and the other end of which is slightly tapered or contracted and is provided with a bearing 3.
lllithin the barrel there is a plunger 4, formed with the conventional cup ring, and which is attached to the inner end of the plunger rod 5 which works through said bearing 3 and whose outer end has a grip 6 attached thereto leading out from one end of the barrel there is a pipe 7, preferably a flexible hose and leading out from a point near the other end of the.
barrel is a pipe also preferably a flexible hose.
In use as a siphon the hose 7 is inserted in to the liquid to be transferred and the free end of the hose 8 depends beneath the liquid to be transferred. The plunger is then pulled backwardly past the hose 8 and seats tightly in the tapered end of the barrel and as it is moved backwardly it will direct the liquid in the barrel 1 and the liquid will continue to flow out through the hose 8. The plunger being seated tightly in the tapered portion of the barrel will prevent the inlet of air that might otherwise enter through the bearing 3.
When the device is to be used for a pump as for the purpose of inflating pneumatic 59 tires the free end of the hose 7 will be equipped with the usual connection for attaching the same to the filling tube of the tire and the plunger may be operated in the usual way to pump up the tire upon back stroke of the plunger 4 when it clears the pipe 8 the barrel 1 will be filled with air and upon for ward stroke of the plunger 4, the air will be forced through the hose 7 into the tire.
lVhile I have shown only one form of the invention and described certain methods of use it is obvious that mechanical changes may be made therein and equivalents substituted for the parts shown within the principle of the invention.
What I claim is:
1. A device of the character described including a barrel one end of which has a flat supporting base, a reciprocable plunger therein, means for reciprocating the plunger and a tube leading out from the barrel near each end thereof, the other end of said barrel beyond the corresponding tube being tapered to fit tightly about the plunger when the plunger is moved into said tapered portion.
2. A siphon including a barrel having a flat supporting base at one end and whose other end is gradually contracted and terminates in a bearing integral with said contracted end, a tube leading out from the side of the barrel adjacent said base end and another tube leading out from the side of the barrel between the contracted end and the base end, said tubes being spaced apart along the barrel, a reciprocable plunger fitted closely within the barrel, a plunger rod attached to said plunger and working through said bearing, said plunger being shaped to fit closely within said contracted portion and when in said contracted portion, preventing leakage 90 through said bearing.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification.
