Patented Jan. 24, 1933 I EMILV BECK, or CHICAGO, rumors NT oFFIcE SPRAY Application filed July 10,
In'barber shops, shampooing parlors and similar establishments, spraying devices have been used in the form of a hose connection having an applicator or water spraying 5 head engaged on one end thereof. The applicators heretofore in use have been provided either with an apertured plate at one end thereof or with an apertured plate recessed into or set back within a rimor flange 0 having a straight peripheral edge. With this type of applicator, it has been found difficult to manipulate or move the same over a persons head or section of a body which is to be sprayed, due to the fact that the Water entering the applicator head through the hose attachment is retained within the applicator under pressure and is not permitted toescape' unless the applicator is removed. It has also been found that, when the applicator is removed from apersons head or other section of a persons body which requires spraying, the water within the applicator head, being under pressure, splashes out in all directions.
The use of water sprays of this type for shampooing and rinsing purposes is, therefore, not very desirable on account of the diiiicultyencountered in moving the applicators over a persons head and on account of thefact that the soapy or dirty water is not allowed to escape except when the appli cator is released, in which case the water is splashed with force in all directions, producing a messy and undesirable condition,
This invention relates to an improved type of spraying crevice applicator. in which the passaged or apertured spraying disc or plate a is recessed or set back into the applicator to afford a needle spray chamber, the margin or edge of whose wall is scalloped, thereby affording an arrangement permitting the applicator to be easily and conveniently moved over a pel'sons head and also affording an arrangement whereby the soapy or dirty water is permitted to be conveniently and continuously discharged through the scalloped openings of the applicator rim, thereby obviating splashing, as Well as facilitating movement of the applicator.
It is anobject of this invention to provide a spray applicator with a scalloped rim to 1930'. Serial 1m. 467,0 0 9,
applicator having an-irregular rim .project- Q ing beyond the apertured spray plate of the applicator to obviate the formation ofra suctionaction takingplace inthe applicator and furthermore obviating splashing and per mittin'g a continuous discharge of rinsing water rom the applicatorover the part to be washed and rinsed. It is animportant object of this invention to provide an improved spraying or rinsing device having an lmprovedapplicator pro-V vided with. a set-back apertured spraying plate and havingia scalloped rim to obviate splashing and permitting a continuousstream of clean water to be brought into contact With parts to be rinsed and allowing the continuous escape of the water "from the applicator as it is moved around. v Y Other and further important objects of this invention willbe apparent from the disclosures in the specification and the accompanying drawing. 7 s V The invention (in a preferred form) is illustrated in the drawing and hereinafter more fully described.

Figure 5 is an enlarged fragmentary detail section of the modified form of applicator taken on lineVV ofFigure 4.
As shown on the drawing:
The improved spraying device comprises afiexible hose or-pipe 1 havinga faucet attachment 2 secured or connected in one end thereof to permitthe device to be connected intake neck, collar or stem 3. The neckpiece or coupling sleeve3 is integrally formed centrally upon the top of an applicator body section or hood 4: having integrally formed transversely therein a disc, plateor partition =5 having a plurality of apertures or passages 6 formed therein. The middle apertures or passages 6 are substantially straight, while:
.1118 scalloped mouthpiece of the device to hold the surrounding passages are directed at an angle, as clearly illustrated in Figure 2, to
permit the needle sprays formed by the apertured disc or plate to be concentrated toward the center of the outletchamberj'l' provided in the bodysection ofthe applicator by the partition plate or disc 5.- j The partition plate or "disc 5 also provides a water distributing in'the' form of needle sprays; The rim or" flange 9, which in the present showing, is integral with the'body section 4 of the applicator, has the edge or margin thereof 'scalor intake chamber '8, into which water from thehose 1. is adapted to be'delivered before beingdischarged through the apertured plate loped or waved to provide a plurality of rounded teeth or fingers 10, affording outlet notches or recesses'll therebetween to facili tate discharge of the rinsing water continuouslyduring the use of the spraying device whenthe same has the applicator thereof movably applied over a section which isto be rinsed.
Figures 4 and 5 illustrate'a modified form tr spraying device applicator 'constructe'dof a plurality of assembled sections. Thermodified form of applicator comprises a hood or body section 12 having a passaged neck or collar .13 integrally formed on the upper converging end thereof. The applicator body section 12 and the neck or collar "13 thereof are adapted to be constructed of metalor any other suitable material. Themargin or rimof the body section 12 is bent inwardly and then upwardly to afford a channel crosssectioned rim or inwardly directed bead 141.
"Mounted within the body section 12 is a spray disc'or plate 15 having a plurality of passages or apertures "16 provided therein to permit water under pressure. which is admitted into th'e' body section 12 to be discharged in the formof needle spraysinto an outlet chamber provided within a continuous rimor flange section 17 adapted to be formed from hard rubber, bakelite' or any other suitable mate- V rial. Integrally formed on the spray plate or disc 15 is an outwardly directed peripheral flange 18 which contacts against the inner peripheral surfaceof'the body section-12 and seats in the inwardly directed bead or channel cross-sectioned rim 1 L of the body section. The mouthpiece or flange section 1'? 'of the applicator has the'outer edge or margin thereof scalloped to provide a; plurality of teeth or fingers 19 which are rounded and v channel-shaped, inwardly directed rim of the 7-5 7 body section .12 of the applicatoris adapted to lockingly spring into engagement with tion, as'illustrated in Figure l; V
a ttention is called to the fact that the improved applicator illustrated in Figures 1 to 3, inclusive,"1nay be of one-piece construction the various parts in proper assembled relaformed of hard rubber, bakelite orbthersuit able material, or,=if preferred, the applicator maybe'constructed of a plurality-of assembled parts as covered inthe showing of the-device illustrated in Figures 4 and Theoperation and use of the improved applicator appears to-be self-evident.- Atten-' tion is, however, called to the fact that the improved scalloped rim or mouthpieceof the applicator affords angimportant improvement in the art in that the mouthpiece is adapted to be ap'pliedand moved over a sure.
face or a material to be rinsed. The easy slid ing operation of the scalloped mouthpiece of the applicator over a surface is permitted due tothe scalloped construction of the edge of the applicator mouthpiece, allowing the water passing through the applicator'andis'suing in the form of needle sprays through the apertures or passages of the separator spray plate to flow continuously from the applicator through the outlet recesses or openings afforded between the teeth or fingers of the scalloped rim. Dueto the scalloped construction of the mouthpiece rim, no suction action is permitted to develop in the outlet or distributing chamber of the applicator and,-
since the scallopedarrangement permits the rinsing water to be'continuously discharged through the scallop openings during theuse 'f of the applicator, splashing is entirely obviated and a clean supply of water is permitted to be continuously applied to the parts to be rinsed, allowingthe soap and other foreign matter which has been washed from material or from the said parts tobe'cone' 'tinuously carried off.
It will, of course, be understood that various details of construction may be varied through a wide range without departing from the principles of this invention, and it is, therefore, not purposed to limit the patent granted hereon "otherwise than necessitated by the scope of theappended claim.
