` AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF' DISPENSING NOZZLE VALVE Filed March 8, 1950 A INVENTOR. EON/1,90 bf DUE/ m jatented jan. 8, 1952 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE AUTOMATIC,snUToEFpisPENsiNG NozzLE VALVE Leonard n.v Duerr, cincinnati, ohafass-gnorto OPW Corporation, Cincinnati, Ohio, a corporation of Ohio Application March 8, 1950, Serial No'. 148,356

, 1 rIfhis invention relates to' automatically operating now control valves or nozzles of the type exemplified by such patents' as Payne 1,550,738 and. Davis 2,320,033 and wherein approximate filling of a receptacle by way of such nozzle serves toautomatically-elose the valve.

In such. devices, submergence of the discharge end. of theI nozzle in the dispensed liquid causes a* flexible diaphragm to function and cause theY main or'low control valve to close'.

More particularly, this invention relates tor a mechanism comprising a flexible diaphragm adapted to.` react to pressures upon opposite sides thereof for automatically operating a ilow control valve toshut off the flow of liquid through dispensing devices of. the character indicated.

A further object of this invention is to provide a nozzle-valve of this type having a hand lever for manually opening the valve with an automatic trip which automatically resets to operativel position when the valve actuating hand lever is released toV its normal valve closing position, atwhich time the flow control valve is closed or on its seat.

A further object of this invention is to provide a diaphragm-operated trip for a nozzle Valve which is adapted to shut off not only when the ratev of liquidy delivery is high but also when the rate ofliquid delivery, is low.

Another object is to provide a durable dispensngfvalve, the operating parts of which may beV of substantial and sturdy construction, whereby. thevalve is adapted to withstandrough handl'i'ng, and abuse suoli as being dropped upon hard surfaces without impairing. the proper functioningl of the automatic operating parts thereof.

Another object of' the invention is to provide a device thatV is simple in construction and operation. and' the manufacture and assembly of the parts' of which may be accomplished expeditiously andeconomically.

The above and' other objects and features of the inventionwill in part be obvious and will in part be apparent'. from the following detailed description; and the drawing, in which:

Figure 1` is a view in side elevation showing an automatic shuteoi valve constructed' in accordance with" an embodiment' of this invention, the discharge' end1 ofY the valve being' shown in` a liquid container;

Fig. 2l is-a- View in lengthwise section of the valvefillustrated in Eig; 1";

Figi. 3: is al sectional view taken' alongaline III-III in Fig. 2.

In the. following detailed description, and the 7 Claims. (Cl. 22e-:127i

. i 2 drawing', like reference characters indicate like parts.

As shown in Figs, 1 and 2, the shut-oir valve comprises av body 4 having a normally c1osed. main valve 5 therein, a dispensing nozzle 6, a valve handle or lever' 11 provided with a fulcrum'v 3 a pressure responsive diphragm mecha` nism 9. With any quantity of liquid nowng through vthe nozzle, mechanism 9' is arranged to trip or release the fulcrum 3 toa position when malin valve 5 will automatically close when the discharge end of the nozzle is submerged in liquid tol a predetermined depth. The body 4 is pro-1` vided' with an inlet passageway I2V which leads to' a valve seat t3 on which main valve 5 is norfmally pressed or seated by a main spring t6. When the, main valv'e' is open,- inlet passageway l2 communicates with an outlett'passageway H which, in turr'rfis' connected to" the discharge nozzle 5'. The tubular nozzle 6 threaded into' body lf and is secured by a lock nut I9.

The mainvalve 5 is provided with;l a valve stem' 24| which extends downwardly and outwardly of body l through a packingV gland 22V. The lower end of the stern is disposed' to' be engaged by hand lever lfwhen the lever is actuated upwardly,

to lift valve 5V off its seaty against the force of ably disposedr in a'. housing or sleeve' 26 which is integral with the7 valve body 4, andl an externally threadedl sleevev 2l', the latter being threaded into' sleeve 26.` Plunger- 25 is urged. upwardly by a coilspring 28' as? shown, but is restricted ini its' travelrbyf Contactoif fulcrum 8 with' base of body" Il.` It is urged; downwardly by spring f6! as will? be explained later.

Normally, thevplungei" 2-5 i's-held.` in a fixed posi-v tion by a locking. mechanism comprising aplu'- ral-ity of balls 3 l' nested in radial openings 32l (see Fig.- .3) in.l the plunger andv an annular shoulder 33l0n the interior ofsle'eve 2l. The balls are' held on.` shouldery 33;. as shown, by .a pin 3'4' sec "ed to thefundersidefo the diaphragm 9i Thefpin' is' providedV with atapered portion"V 351' ata locationslightly below the. balls. Below tapered portion 35, the pin' includes a dependingstem 35" which" serves asa ball"l retainer. Thus, when the pinL is" ated downwardly, provided hand lever 1 is in its valve opening position. This movementl of the plunger results because of the strong force of spring I6 and the relatively weaker force of spring 28. When the plunger moves downward, fulcrum 8 is released to dotted line position shown in Fig. 2 whereby the valve stem is disengaged from hand lever 1.

The diaphr-agm is actuated upwardly by suction (or reduction in pressure) in the chamber above the diaphragm. The suction results from ow of liquid through the main valve. While the discharge end of the nozzle is not submerged, the pressure in the diaphragm chamber is not reduced suificiently to deflect the diaphragm to the tripping position of the locking mechanism.

As shown in Fig. 2, the marginal edge of the diaphragm 9 is clamped between .a cap 36 and the valve body by suitable screws 3l. The space between the cap and the"- diaphragm is the suction chamber 31. This chamber communicates with a tube 38 the open end of which is at 40 adjacent the outlet of the nozzle. Opening 40 extends through the side wall of the nozzle and is removed from the flow stream through the nozzle. The diaphragm chamber also communicates with the ow passageway Il adjacent and immediately below valve 5, through a passageway 4i. The ow passageway of the valve is designed to provide a Venturi effect on the diaphragm. As shown, a ring 42 is mounted in the passageway below the valve seat. The interior of the ring has a tapered surface which provides a converged or restricted throat 43. Immediately below the throat is an annular groove to which passageway 4I is connected.

In order that the restricted or Venturi passageway may be adjusted in iiow area for various positions of valve 5, other than closed, and thereby insure that sufficient suction will be developed at low rates of flow say 2 or 2.5 G. P. M. as well as at high rates say 12 to l5 G. P. M., including the intermediate values of rates of flow, the upper part of the valve stem is provided lwith an inverted frusto-conic portion 44. The upper por-- tion of section 44 has a frusto-conic section 4'5 of wider angle adjacent the valve seat. These frusto-conic sections so regulate the restricted flow area through the valve for the various open positions of valve 5 that a high degree of suction is developed at the inlet to the diaphragm chamber at the various rates of flow of liquid through the nozzle'which are encountered in practice.

Assuming that the fulcrum is in its locked position and it is desired to ll the container 45 shown in Fig. l, the nozzle is placed as shown. The operator then lifts the valve handle to the dotted line position of Fig. 2. Since the fulcrum 8 is held in xed position, valve stem 2| will be lifted and valve `5 opened. As liquid flows into the container, air will be drawn into opening 40 through the tube 38 into diaphragm chamber 31 and thence from the chamber through passageway 4l to the liquid flowing through the valve. When opening 40 is submerged, air is evacuated from the diaphragm chamber whereby the differential pressure acting thereon causes the diaphragm to move upwardlyagainst the force of spring 29. The diaphragm carries lwith it pin 34 whereby the balls 3| are released as previously described. The fulcrum plunger 25 and its fulcrum 8 are then moved downwardly by spring I6 acting through valve stem 2l whereby the main valve is automatically closed and the ow vto the cointainer is shut off. When the valve handle l is released to closed position the fulcrum plunger is reset by spring 2B to the position where the balls will be deflected outwardly to their locking position, the balls being forced to this position by the conical surface 35 or taper on pin 34 which will have been released to its normal position by diaphragm spring 29 when the main valve is closed.

In practice, spring 29 is so designed that only a slight suction or reduction in pressure in the diaphragm chamber is required to lift the ball release pin to the fulcrum tripping position.

The shut-off valve described above and illustrated in the drawing is subject to structural modication without departing from the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
