Hollingsh of New Jersey cad Co., a corporation original application Mai-ch zo, 1929,' serial No. 348,445. Divided andthis application March 11, 1930. serial No. 436,614

1 claim. (c1. s z-s) My invention relates to a new and useful method of making soap solution and apparatus therefor, whereby solid soap may be converted into a soap solution without removing the same from its original container in which the' soap is originally packed and shipped.

The present application is a division of my copehding application Serial No. 348,445, led

March 20, 1929, issued as Patent No. 1,751,301 on March 18th, 1930. My invention consists in pouring the soft and warm 'soap from the kettles into suitable steel drums or similar containers having suitable opening at the top and having also suitable side opening at the bottom, and retaining or providing a suitable passageway contiguous with the mass of soap between the top and bottom openings of the drum, while the soap is setting or hardening, and without any cores or the like. After the soap has set or solidiedra suitable valve or lfaucet is secured to the lower opening in the drum and by pouring water into the passageway contiguous with the mass' of soap, a suitable soap solution may be drawn off through the bottom opening in the drum, after the water has been in contact with the soap for a vSuitable length of time. Y

. For the purpose of illustrating my invention I .have shown in the accompanying drawing a form drum, illustrating an embodiment of my inven-v tion; showing the drum filled with soap in a "setting position. Figure 2 represents a similar vertical sectio view; with the drum in position and condition.

ready for use.

Figure 3 represents a top plan view of the same. In carrying out my invention I provide a steel drum 1 having a threaded opening 2 in the side wall thereof near the bottom and a comparatively large central opening 5 in the top wall 3, ttere- The soap, as it comes from the kettle in which it is made, or in the still hot and uidcondition,

is poured into the drum through the large topv opening 5, without entirely filling the drum, but leaving a suitable clearance on top.

The larger upper opening 5 is then' closed by a lid 9 suitably secured by bolt 10, or in any other suitable manner. While the soap is being filled into the drum and also during its-settling and until it is actually used, a plug 13 closes the lower opening 2.

After the lid 9 has. been flxedly securedto the top of the drum, the drum is turned over on its side with the opening -2 and 4 positioned on top, as indicated in Figure 1. In this posi- 7 tion the soap is allowed to set or harden, whereby a clear passageway is provided betweenthe top and bottom openings 4 and 2 of the drum,

adiacent theside wall of the drum.

After the soap has hardened so that it will retain its shape and retain the passageway 7 between the top and bottom openings 4 and 2 respectively, a plug 12 is threaded into the top opening 4.- The bottom of the plug 12 is provided with a threaded cavity, into which is screwthreaded a faucet 11. The faucet 11 is thus carried by the plug 12, while the soap drum is in transit or storage. l

When the soap drum is ready for use, it is set on end as indicated in Figure 2, the plug12 removed therefrom and the faucet inserted into the hole or bottom opening 2 -in place of the plug 13.

Thereafter the passageway 7 is lled with water while the faucet is closed. The water is allowed to remain in contact with the body of soap for a length of time suicient to produce the desired concentration of soap solution. Thereafter the desired soap solution is drawn off through the faucet 11.

I am aware that the invention may be emed -in other specific forms without departing from thespirit or essential attributes thereof, and I therefore .desire the present embodiments to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive, reference beinghad tothe appended claim rather than to the foregoing" description to indicate the scope of the invention.

By this method a ready means is providedtnus my tnvention'what .I 1,10

the container'in a generally horizontal position with the openings thereof disposed on top, thereby causing the uid soap to flow to the side of the container then disposed at the bottom,

and opposite to the side of the container having the openings, allowing the soap to solidify in this condition, so that a passageway is provided intermediate the two openings in the container Without the aid of any auxiliary apparatus.
