rmmkn Patented Nov. 18, 1952 v UNITED JUICE CAN PERFORATOR AND SPOUT William D. Taylor, Long Beach, Calif. Application May 27, 1949, Serial No. 95,732

3 Claims.

This invention relates to a perforator and spoutfor cans containing juice or liquid of any type and the prime object of my invention is to provide a perforator and spout of the character stated in which ports in the perforator are controlled by a valve, these valves being manually operable.

Another object of my invention is to provide a novel can perforator and spout in which a pair of tubular valves are mounted on a common lever, this lever being manually depressed to open and close these valves.

Still another feature of my invention is to provide a novel can perforator and spout of the character stated, which will fit on top of the can while it is in use.

Other objects, advantages and features of invention may appear from the accompanying drawing, the subjoined detailed description and the appended claims.

In the drawing:

Figure 1 is a transverse vertical sectional View of my can perforator and spout.

Figure 2 is a view similar to Figure 1, but showing the valves in a closed position.

Figure 3 is a side elevation of my can perforator and spout.

Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral I indicates a body, ring-like in shape, and preferably formed of a metal and integrally cast. A spout 2 is provided on one side of this body. A cover 3 closes the top of the body I and fits tightly onto this body so as to efiectively close the top. The body I fits onto the metal can 4, of usual and well known construction. This metal can may contain milk, fruit juice, and the like.

A transverse wall 5 is integrally formed with the body I and is positioned immediately below the spout 2. A pair of tubular cutters of perforators 61 are cast in the wall 5 at the time the body I is cast. These tubular perforators are formed of steel, preferably, and have a sharp cutting edge so as to perforate or cut the top of the can 4. A hollow sleeve valve 8 is slidably mounted in the perforator 6 and this valve is provided with a pair of spaced air vents 9 and I0. As shown in Figure 1, the vents 9 and I0 permit air to enter the can 4 while in Figure 2 the valve 8 is raised and the port 9 is closed, thus preventing air from entering the can.

A second sleeve valve II is slidably mounted in the perforator I and this valve is open at the bottom and has an outlet hole or port I2 in the side, through which fluid is poured out of the spout 2. In a raised position of the valve II, the port I2 is open, as shown in Figure 1, while in the lowered position of the valve, the port I2 is closed.

A link I3 is pivotally mounted on an ear I I which rises from the wall 5 and this link can rock back and forth to control the valves 8 and II. The valve 8 is pivotally secured to one end of the link I3 while the valve II is pivotally attached to the opposite end of the link. A spring I5 normally holds the link I3 in the position shown in Figure 2, which is the closed or sealed position, so that no air can enter the can nor can fluid be poured therefrom.

A finger button I6 is slidably mounted in the cover 3, and this button bears against the top of the link I3 for the purpose of depressing the link to the position shown in Figure 1, so that liquid can be poured out of the can 4.

Having described my invention, I claim:

A can perforator and spout comprising a ring-like body adapted to fit on top of a can, an integral transverse wall in the body, a cover enclosing the top of the body, a spout on one side of the body, a pair of spaced tubular cutters mounted in said transverse wall, a tubular valve mounted in each of said cutters and slidable therein for vertical movement, each of said valves having a port in the side thereof, a link pivotally mounted on said wall and pivotally attached to each of said valves.

2. A can perforator and spout comprising a ring-like body adapted to fit on top of a can, an integral transverse wall in the body, a cover enclosing the top of the body, a spout on one side of the body, a pair of spaced tubular cutters fixedly mounted in said transverse wall'and projecting downwardly therefrom, a tubular valve reciprocally mounted in each of said cutters, said valves having a vertical reciprocal movement in the cutters, each of said valves having a port in the side thereof, each of said valves being closed at the top, a link pivotally mounted. on the top of said wall, each of said valves being pivotally attached to one end of said link.
