SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 245,401, dated August 9, 1881.
' Application filed May23, 1881. N0 model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, JOHN B. RAYNOR, DAVID N. SMITH, and ARBA M. SEYMOUR, citizens of the United States, residing at Mazomanie, in the county of Dane and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Oil-Gan Spouts; and we do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to theaccompanyingdrawin gs, and to the letters or figures of reference marked thereon, which forms a part of this specification.
Our invention relates to can-spouts; and it consists in the construction, adaptation, and application to the spout of a sliding sleeve-valve, whereby the spout-opening, located in a peculiar position in relation to the extreme end of the spout, and the outer end of a vent-tube are opened and closed when the valve is brought in contact with or withdranui from the edge of the supply-aperture of a lamp or other vessel, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
In the drawings, Figure l is a side elevation. Fig. 2 is a vertical longitudinal section; and Fig. 3 is a transverse section of our improved spout, enlarged and cut through line .40 n0 ofFig. 1.
To the body of an oil or other can, A, is attached the spout B, the extreme outer end of which is closed, as at I). The exit out of which the oil or other liquid flows is located a short distance back from the closed end, as at c, and is cut in the lower portion of the spout. Immediately over this exit is located a small opening, d, through which air is supplied to a vent-tube, D. This tube, passing longitudinally through the spout, extends to a point near the upper and opposite side of the can from that in which the spout is located. A sliding sleeve-valve, O, surrounds the spout near its outer end, and is provided with an'annular collar, a, between which and a rigid collar,f, constructed upon the spout, is located a spiral or other spring, E. The resiliency of this spring forces the sleeve-Valve outward, the forward end impinging against a stop-flange, g, located at the extreme outer end of the spout, thus closing the exit-aperture c and the outer opening of the ent-tube D, as shown in Figs.
l and 3.
When supplying oil or other liquid to a lamp or other vessel the outer end of the spout is inserted in the supply-aperture F of such vessel, the shoulder a upon the rear end of the sleeve-valve resting against the edge or neck of this aperture. The sleeve-valve, by means of this contact, is held stationary while the spout is pressed down until the rear end of the sleeve-valve is made to impinge against an annular stop-flange, c, constructed upon the spout, when the exit 0 and opening d are uncovered, thus allowing the air to flow in and the oil or other liquid to flow out of the can, as shown in Fig. 2. Upon withdrawing the spout from the aperture F the spring E, acting upon the sleeve-valve, forces the same outward, thus closing exit 0 and vent-opening (1.
Having thus fully described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. The can-spout B, provided with a closed end, I), and exit 0, in combination with the sliding sleeve-valve 0, provided with annular collar to, and the spring E, substantially as described.
2. The can-spout B, provided with a closed end, I), flanges 0,], and g, and exit 0, in combination with the sliding sleeve-valve O, provided with an annular collar, to, and the spring E, substantially as described.
3. The can-spout B, in combination with the sliding sleeve-valve 0, provided with an an nular collar, a, the spring E, and vent-tube D, having its opening at d, substantially as described.
4. The can-spout B, provided with flanges e, f, andg, in combination with the sliding sleevevalve O, provided with an annular collar, a, the spring E,and vent-tube D, having its opening at (1, substantially as described.
5. The can-spout B, provided with a closed end, I), flanges c, f, and g, and exit 0, in combination with the sliding sleeve-valve 0, provided with an annular collar, to, the spring E, and vent-tube D, having its opening at (Z, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof we affix our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
