This invention relates to a dispensing container, especially designed and adapted for use with alcohol, althou h also capable of advantageous use with o' and other liquids B and substances.
One of the principal objects of the present invention is to provide a container of this character so constructed and organized as to greatly facilitate pouring of the contents of the container therefrom, and this in such manner that the contents will be kept out of contact with the drum. This is especially important with substances such as alcohol which are a solvent for the lacquer with 11 which the cam is coated and labeled.
Another important object of the invention is to provide'a container of this character in which the dispensing means or spout is so arranged and combined with the container as to eliminate the necessit of a vent, the
plane of the opening of the ispensing meansapproaching the vertical at the beginning of pouring to provide for free and unobstructed communication of the space above the level of the liquid with the atmosphere at alltimes.
Another object is to provide a container having dispensing means which is se1f-drain in and which is so constituted that the liqui will not drip on the side of the drum or 80 on the floor when finishing pouring or at any other time.
Among other objects of the invention are to provi e a container which may be sealed and which ma not be opened without break- 85 ing the seal. is object is obtained without rendering the container liable to leak, the sealing bands being riveted to parts of the exterior dis nsing means and not to the head of the rum. The cap of the dispensing means is easily opened.
Other "objects and advantages reside in certain novel features of the construction, arrangement and combination of parts which will be hereinafter more fully described and 46 particularly pointed out in the appended claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawin forming a part of this specification, an in which: 1
Figure 1 is a perspective view showing a container embodying the present invention; 60
Figure 2 is a sectlonal view taken on line 22 of Figure 1; s
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on line 3-3 of Figure 2; and
Flgure 4 is a sectional view similar to Figure 2 but showing a modified form of the invention.
Referring to the drawings, the numeral 1 designates the-body portion of the container which may be of cylindrical form and have a 00 lower head or bottom of an suitable construction. The upper head esignated at 3 1s secured to the upper end of the body portion as at 4 and has a plain flat horizontal portion 5 and an inclined portion 5', the inclined 05 portion extending downwardly and outwardly from the flat portion toward the body portion of the container. A pouring spout 6 is provided and has angle flanges 7 around its lower edge which are inter-crimped or inter 7c seamed with the portion 5 of the head. of the container. It also has part of its upper edge beaded as at 8 and part flanged as at 9 and pressed firmly into engagement with the seam 4. The flanged portion 9 is engaged with an E5 outwardly pressed portion of the upper end of the body portion of the container so that the pouring 11p that the flanged portion of the -spout defines lies outwardly beyond the periphe'ral wall of the container. 1
The outlet openingofthe container is provided with an outletifitting or neck 10 having the form of a short tube or sleeve, the in ner end of which is inter-seamed or intercrimped with the ortion of the head 3 and 86 with the portion of the spout, as will be clear from the drawings. Intermediate its ends the tube 10 has a corrugation 13 and its upper end is rolled over to providea gasket seat 14.
A closure 15 is provided and has a ripheral flange 16 formed with an inturn lower edge 17 The peripheral flange 16 and its inv ter described having the usual body portion turned lower edges are provided with an 5 larly spaced slots so that the portions tween the slots may flex to permit the inturned lower edge to'be snapped into locking engagement with the shoulder 18 presented y a portion of the tube 10 which de- 10 fines the corrugations. A gasket G is pro- 'vided in the closure cap 15. With this construction, bypressing on the center of'the bod '--portion=-15, the body portion will be buc ed by a snap action and the enclosure '15 may be disengaged... This'is the conventional t e of closure cap 'widely used and per se orms no part of t e invention. I
An inverted cup-sha ed guard 19"encloses the ca and outlet fitting and where the re Q eeptac e is sealed coacts with the seal. The seal is only shown diagrammatically, being desi ated at 20,- and-is associated with sealing ands 21, the" ends of which are-riveted ms at22 to. portionsof the spout. 2185.; --shown in: Figu ahead 3. an -'1n'clined portion 6 may be wililipped with a diflerent type of closure. erethe container is-u'sed foroil it may be desirable to emiployi the dispensing struciw ture shown in igure' 4. As illustrated in -.=Fi re.4,-the outlet tube or fitting 10 is omitand is re laced by a difierent type of outletftube' or tting designated generally at 25 and consisting of a cylindrical or tubular 'zitportion 26 having threads formed therein and provided with an attaching portion 28 which isinter-seamed with the portion 5 of the head and withthes'pojut' 6; The closure .in this consists of a plug 30 which is s thr aded into the tube or cylindrical mac- -tur'e -In other respects this form of the invention is like that shown in' Figures 1 to 8 andhereinabo ve described. a
" The outsta' ding advantage of the containf'ersexnbodying the-present invention, is the manner in which pouring is facilitated. The
container need be but'tipped slightly to dis-" :c'har'ge its contents when itis full 'and at this a and atall'other times a well defined and easily controlled stream issues from the con! ,tainer. The contents dispensed are kept out 9f bntact with the drum. There'is no bubor gurglinggandthis without the provi-. 1
