This invention relate s to carbonated beverage dispensers and has for'the primary object the provision of a' deviceof this character which may be easily and quickly adapted to a bottle or like container in which-the carbonated beverage is sold and which will open the bottle by the appli cation thereto and provides aneflicient seal to prevent deterioration of the beverage'and is so constructed that the beverage may bev dispensed asdesired. A a
With these and other objects in view,-this invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and For a complete understanding of my invention,
and accompanying draw n in which v Figure 1 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view illustrating'a dispenser adapted to a bottle reference is to be had to the following description and constructed in accordancewith my invention.
Figure 2 is a toptplan view dispenser.
Figure ,3 is a sectional view taken on the line illustrating the Iii-3 of Figure 1. I
Figure 4 is a fragmentary side elevation illustrating the means'of'securing the dispenser to the bottle. 1
Figure 5 is a view similar to. Figure 4 showing the connection between an adjusting'sleeve-and an anchoring clamp.- g Figure 6 is azplarr view illustrating a specially constructed cap to be used on the bottle.
Figure 7 is a sectional view illustrating the cap. Figure 8 is a side elevation illustrating a punci- ,turing element employed, for I standard or caps now in use onbottles.
Referring in detail to the drawing, the nu meral I indicates a valve housingon which is formed a nozzle 2. The valve housing I has a which extends through the valve housing and is equipped; with a finger piece 6. A coil spring] surrounds the stein between the valve housing and the finger piece for urgingthe' valve in engagement with the seat 3. The stems is guided in its sliding movement by a spider 8 mounted in the valve housing. Formed on the valve'housing below the valve seat is an internally and externally screw threaded sleeve 9. Threaded into thesleeve 9 is-a tube In adapted to pass-downwardly in a bottle II and has integral therewith a cap engaging disc Ill; The lower end of the tube I0 is internally screw threaded to receive the adjusting sleeve 18. ,The bushing I1 .is' provided ,-formed on the sleeve l8."Located in the bushtube Ill and are interposed'between the bushing l'Land thecap'engagingdisc, Ill and with the clamp applied toithe neck of the bottleand the ment 'of' the bushing l1 relative to thesleeve l8 closed position will prevent the contents of th 'penetratethe material thereof. When employing a standard type of cap commonly known as the crown cap the puncturing element I3 is employed and consists; of a cone-shaped body 29, the pointed screw threaded end of-"either of 1 elements" or is.
When employing invention on a bottle J the latter may beiequipped with a standard or a ordinarytype of crown cap'(not. shown) or the, 5 bottle may be equipped with a 'cap l4 secured to the neck of the 'bottle in the'same manner as the ordinary type of crown cap. The cap It is offset, as shown at I5. The cap about the ofiset I5 is weakened so thatwhen the puncturing element I2 is brought into engagement therewith with minimum force the; material of the offset will be broken away allowing the tube It to pass downwardly in the bottle. 7 A gasket i6 is arrangedinthecaplfi;
A bushing I1 is threaded .to the sleev'eB and is of a diameter greater than the diameter of the l neck of the bottle and has threaded therein an with a packing I 9 to-engage*the.-tube Jill and sleeveS. V I
A' sectional clamp isplaced about the neck of the bottle below the usual shoulder Men the bottle; The sectional clamp is hinged'together,
as shown at 22,'and is equipped witha fastener '25 23 whereby the clamp mayfbereadilyapplied and removed from the neck of' the bottle; Pivoted g to the clamp '20 are yokes 24 adapted to be'tbrought in engagement with projections or keepers 525 ing I! is a plurality of *washers '26. One of the washers is preferably constructed of metal and is indicated by 'the character- 21 while the oth er washers may be constructed'of anysuitable composition material: The washers surround the yokes in engagement with the keepers an adjustwill draw the washers in tight engagement with thebushing arid-the cap engaging disc 10' thereby providing air effective seal between'myinvention'and theibottles Thevalve being held in 8.
bottlefrom evaporating orideteriorating.
Thepuncturing' element I2 is ,provided with several prongs 28 which when brought in engagement with the offset 15 of the capwill readily .end' of which will readily pass through the .cap when placed in engagement with said cap'with sumcient force. The puncturing elements l2 and 83 each have a bore passing therethrough.
After the application of my invention to a bottle, as shown in Figure 1, and if said bottle contains charged beverage it is only necessary to unseat the valve 6 by pressing on the finger piece 6 so that the charged beverage may pass out of the bottle by way of the tube ill and nozzle 2. As soon as the finger piece t is released the spring '7 acts to close the valve, consequently sealing the beverage against atmospheric conditions and which will prevent deterioration of the beverage. If the beverage is not charged, the valve is opened and the bottle is tilted so that the beverage may flow from the bottle by way of the tube and the nozzle.
The tubes IQ may heof difierent lengths so that this device may be adapted to bottles of pint,
quart and other sizes.
Having described the invention, I claim:
The combination of a bottle having a closure and a dispenser including a valve of the self-seating type, a finger piece for opening said valve, a nozzle formed on the housing for said valve, a tube detachably secured to the housing for said valve, a penetrating element detachably secured to said tube, a bushing detachably secured to the valve housing and having the tube extending therethrough, an adjusting sleeve threaded to said bushing, packing between the bushing and the closure of the bottle, a clamp detachably mounted on the neck of the bottle, yokes pivoted to said clamp, and projections formed on the adjusting sleeve to be engaged by the yokes.
