(01.62%90) v This invention aims to provide novel means for cooling a cream can or a milk can by evaporation. Another object of the invention is to improve the absorbent cover of the can and to g provide novel means for discharging the liquid which is to be evaporated, upon the'cover of the can.

It is within the province of the disclosure to improve generally and to enhance the utilityof f devices of that type to which the present invention appertains.

With the above and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the'combination and arlt rangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and. claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed, may be made within the scope of what is claimed,

xtivithout departing from the spirit of the inven Ion.

In the accompanying drawings:

Fig. 1 shows, in side elevation, a device constructed in accordance with the invention, parts 25 being broken away; I

Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal section;

Fig. 3 is'a top plan;

Fig. 4 is a cross section on. the line 4--4 of Fig. 1;

30 Fig; 5 iS Fig. 1;

Fig. 6 is a perspective view of the cover;

Fig. 7 is a top plan showing the neck of the can.

35 The numeral l marks a milk or cream can, including a tubular body 2 having a double walled top 3 defining a circumscribing water compartment 4, the outer wall of which has perforations 5. The top 3 of the can is connected to a re- 40 duced neck 6 provided with an outwardly flared rim 1 having a raised radialrib 8 supplied with a hole 9.

I A cup-shaped lid It fits in the can neck 6 and is supplied with an outwardly flared rim ll, con- 45 forming to the rim l of the can, the rim il having a raised radial portion [2, receiving the corresponding part 3 on the rim l of the can i. A siphon tube I4 is secured in the raised rib E2 of the lid, the inner leg of the siphon extending 50 vdownwardly into the cup-shaped lid ID, the outer leg of the siphon extending down removably through the hole 9 in the rib B of the flange l of the neck 6, through the outer wall of the can op 3, into the water compartment 4, the outer 55 leg of the siphon extending downwardly through a cross section on the line 5-5 of a trough-shaped'guardl5 secured to the outside of the neck 6 of the and to the rim 1 thereof. The top 3 of thecan lis provided with oppositely disposed handles ll. I l

The cover or casing for the can i is marked as a whole by the numeral I8 and conforms to the shape of the can,'from the lower end of the can up'to'the lower end of the neck 6 of the can, the casing including a body 23 and a top 24.

The casing l8 comprises an inner layer i9 and an 10 outer layer ;eaoh made of burlap or other absorbent material. A flexible ring 2|, preferably cf felt, secured between the layers l9 and 2e, at-the lower end of the casing, and the casing is reenforcedat its -lower'end by a flexible exter- 1 5 nal band 22.

spirally disposed spacing strips 25, preferably made of felt, are secured- 'between the layers I9 and 20, in the top 24 of the casing, and extend downwardly to the place where the top 24 of the casing joins'the body 230i the casing, the spacing strips beingsepara't'ed transversely, as Fig. 1 will show; spirally disposed spacing strips 26, preferably made of felt, are secured between the layers l9 and 20, in the body 23 of the casing, and extend downwardly to the lower end of the casing, from the place where the top 24 of the casing joins the body 23 of the casing. The strips 26 have notches 21 in their upper edges. The

strips 25 extend spirally in one direction, and

the strips 26 extend spirally in an opposite direction, as Fig. 1 will show.

As shown in Fig. 6, the casing It has an opening extending from the top to the bottom. Wings 30 and 3| are secured to the inner layer as of the casing. The outer layer 28 of the casing I8 is extended beyond the wings 3i! and 3! to form flaps 32, adapted to overlie each other as shown at 42 in Fig. 4. Where the body 23 of the casing joins the top 24 thereof are located straps 33, one of the straps being adapted to be engaged with a buckle 34 on the other strap. Guides 35 are attached to the wing 30. Guides 36 are attached to the wing 3|. A flexible element 3'! is provided. The upper end of a flexible element 31 is made fast to the uppermost guide 35. The flexible element 3! slides in the other guides 35. Connectors 38 are mounted to slide on a flexible element 31, between the guides 35. The connectors 38 may be hooks, adapted to be engaged with the guides 36 on the wing 3|. On the lower end of the flexible element 31 there is an anchor 39, such as a snap.

The casing i8 is placed around the can I, one of the straps 33 is engaged with the buckle 3t,

the connectors 38 are engaged with the guides 36 on the wing 3|, the flexible element is pulled upon, to tighten the casing l8 on the can I, and finally the anchor or snap 39 is engaged with the lowermost one of the guides 35 on the wing 30. In this way, the casing I8 is tightened about the can I. The flaps 32 may be folded to cover the flexible element 31 and associated parts.

The top 24 of the casing has openings 40, adapted to receive thehandles I! on the can. The upper edge of the top 24 of the casing I8 has a notch 4| adapted to receive the lower end of the guard l5 on the can.

Around the casing l8 extends a V-shaped trough 43, the upper portion of the outer wall of which is flared outwardly. The trough serves to catch water which may find its way down along the top 24 of the casing.

In practical operation, the casing I8 is secured about the can I. Water is placed in the cup shaped lid l until the siphon tube 14 begins to operate. The siphon tube I 4 delivers water into the water compartment 4 and the water passes out of the perforations into the casing and saturates the casing. As the water moves downwardly in the top 24 of the casing, the water is evenly distributed by the strips or ribs 25, and as the water moves downwardly in the lower part of the body 23 of the casing, the water is distributed by the spiral strips or ribs 26, the notches 21 tending to check the downward fiow of water. The general construction is such that the inner layer l9 and the outer layer 20 of the casing will be saturated with water, and when evaporation occurs, the can will be kept cool.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed is:

1. In a device of the class described, a can having a water compartment, a cup-shaped lid for the can, a siphon carried by the lid, one leg of the siphon extending downwardly into the lid, and the other leg of the siphon extending re movably downwardly into the water compartment, and an absorbent casing about the can, the water compartment having perforations discharging upon the casing.

2. In a device of the class described, a can having a water compartment, a cup-shaped lid for the can, a siphon carried by the lid, one leg of the siphon extending downwardly into the lid, and the other leg of the siphon extending removably down into the water compartment, and an absorbent casing about the can, the water compartment having perforations discharging upon the casing, the casing comprising spaced walls, and spirally disposed deflecting ribs be tween the walls.

3. In a device of the class described, a can having a water compartment, a cup-shaped lid for the can, a siphon carried by the lid, one leg of the siphon extending downwardly into the lid and and the other leg of the siphon extending removably down into the water compartment, and an absorbent casing about the can, the Water compartment having perforations discharging upon the casing, the casing comprising inner and outer walls, and upper and lower ribs between the walls, the ribs extending spirally of the can, the upper ribs being inclined in one direction, spirally of the casing, and the lower ribs being eX- tended in an opposite direction spirally of the casing.

4. In a device of the class described, a can having a water compartment, a cup-shaped lid for the can, a siphon carried by the lid, one leg of the siphon extending downwardly into the lid, and the other leg of the siphon extending removably down into the water compartment, and an absorbent casing about the can, the water compartment having perforations discharging upon the casing, the casing being longitudinally divided from top to bottom to form an opening, and means associated with the casing for drawing the casing together to close the opening.
