lF-atentecl June 14, 1960 :set. forth in the following description ofthe preferred 'r'forms illustratedsinthe drawing accompanying and-forming part of the specification. It is to beunderstood that I'do not limit myself to the showing made by the said drawing and description, but that I may adopt variations of thepreferred forms within the scope of the'invention as defined by the claims.
'Referring to the drawings:
'Figure 1 is a view in side elevation of one form-of apparatus'incorporating the principles of the present .in-
Figure 2 is afront elevation. Figure 3 is a view similar to Fig. 1,. but drawn to-an 'enlarged scale .and with the upper, operative-portion of 15 i of the apparatus of Figures 5 and 6, butwi-th'the reser andin the same plane'as that of Figure 7, showing the detailedconstruction-of the distributingsurface, the aspiration or suction aperture, and the recess in the distribution surface which enhances the evenness of distribution of the concentrated liquid throughoutthe diluent liquid and which also functions to increase the suction or aspirating effort exerted by the sheet of diluent liquid Intermsofbroad inclusion, the present invention cornprises means defining a flat mixing or distribution surface,'preferably having an aperture therein which aperture is connected with a supply of concentrated liquid material such as liquid fertilizer or liquid insecticide. A jet of water or other diluent liquid under pressure is directed against the flat surface at an oblique angle thereby causing the diluent-liquid to spread out-and-le'ave the surface in the form'of a spray. During its passage over the surface it passes overthe aperture. Reduced perssure caused "by the passage of the spread-out jet'of diluent liquid over the aperture, causes the concentrated liquid to be sucked, or aspirated through the -aperture and mixed with the spray. The present invention comprises refinements of detailed construction and improvements which adapt the apparatus for satisfactoryuse' in connection with concentrated liquids which contain solid or semi-solid particles which, in previously developed forms of my liquid mixing and spraying apparatus would seriously interfere with their operation by clogging the with which the concentrate'is mixedwith the diluent by enhancing the evenness with which the former is distributed through the latter prior to the actual spraying operation.
Referring first to that modification of my invention which is illustrated in Figures 1 to 4;inclusiVe, thereis provided a body portionor supporting element, indicated generally at 11, and preferably in'the form of asingle die casting. 'An-extension 12*fo'rmed integrally with thebody'portion 11 at one side thereofi'is of tubular'fo'rm,
having an internally'threaded socket '13 to which the malethreads-of a conventional garden host coupling can be secured and a jet hole, or nozzle, 14 the bore of which devices.
communicates with the socket 13. This nozzle 14 is adapted to direct its jet, preferably in round, pencil-like.
form onto a substantially flat distributing surface 16 at an oblique angle thereto so that after the pencil-like et The distributing surface 16 is provided upon the upper surface of a platform 21 which projects upwards a suit- 'able distance above the main portion 22 of the body 11;
and the main portion 22 is provided in its under surface with a circular recess 23 the circumferential wall of which is interiorally threaded for the reception of a reservoir jar 24 preferably of conventional type, such as that commonly employed in the marketing of mayonnaise and similar products. However, in order to enlarge the range of adaptability of the device, I also prefer to provide a second, smaller socket 26 concentric with the socket 23 but projecting upwards beyond the top wall 27 thereof, as clearly shown in Figure 3. The circumferential wall 28 of this smaller socket 26 is also provided with interior or female threads so that the threaded neck 29 of a bottle 30, also preferably of conventional and cOmmonlyoccurring form, can be attached to the under surface of the body 11, as is also clearly shown in Figure 3. This double socket feature of the body 11 permits either a bottle or a jar to be employed as a reservoir for the concen- .trated liquid which the device is intended to dilute and spray.
The parts are so proportioned and arranged that the :pencil-like jet 15'from the nozzle 14, impinges upon the distributionsurface 16 just before, it reaches an aspiration or suction aperture 31, the upper end of which opens through the distribution surface 16 and which extends downwards therefrom through a tubular projection 32 which preferably is coaxially arranged within the smaller socket 28. A-preferably flexible tube 33, secured at its upper end by being slipped over this projection .32 thus establishes communication between the suction aperture31 and the reservoir attached to the under surface of the body 11, regardless of whether that reservoir be in the form of the jar 24 or the bottle 36. This suction tube 33 preferably extends to a position closely adjacent the bottom of the reservoir jar or bottle, as the case might be, so that substantially the entire contents of the reservoir can be aspirated before the supply of concentrated liquid needs replenishing.
Impingement of the jet 15 against the surface 16 just before it reaches the upper end of the suction aperture 31, causes the fan-shaped sheet 17 to pass, at considerable velocity, over the upper end of the suction aperture 31. This causes a partial vacuum to be developed within the suction aperture 31 so that fluid within the bore of the projection 32 and withinthat of the tube 33, will be drawn upwards through the suction aperture 31 to mix with and consequently to be diluted by the liquid jetted onto the surface 16 from the nozzle 14.
In the type of mixing and spraying apparatus previously produced, it has been necessary to restrict the size of the suction orifice, or else to provide a metering orifice below and relative closely adjacent the aspiration aperture in order to limit the quantity of concentrated liquid and thereby regulate the degree of concentration of the ultimate spray. In fact a No. 60 drill has to be used in forming a suction aperture small enough to function properly in this connection in the previously existing A drill of this extremely small size is necessarily and inevitably relatively delicate with the result that it is a somewhat diflicult machining operation to drill the suction apertures therewith without breakage of the drill. Moreover, the extremely small suction aperture is possessed of the disadvantage that the concentrated liquid to be aspirated therethrough must be substantially free of solid or semi-solid particles of matter of diameter greater than that of the aperture itself. This, it has been found, constitutes an important disadvantage of the previously existing liquid-mixing and spraying devices inasmuch as a large number of commercial liquid fertilizers presently available upon the market contain a relatively high proportion of solids and semi-solid particles, the diameter of which greatly exceeds that of an aperture produced by a 60-gauge drill. When constructed in accordance with the principles of the present invention, the device has incorporated thereinto two refinements and details of construction which have been found to overcome this disadvantage of earlier devices with a high degree of efficiency. The first of these improvements involves the size of the suction aperture 31 itself. Instead of being of only .035 to .045 of an inch in diameter as when constructed with the No. 60 drill, suction aperture 31 of the present apparatus is of substantially /8 of an inch in diameter, i.e., approximately .125 or many times the size of the previously used suction orifices. Seldom, if ever, are solid or semi-solid particles of greater diameter than those that can pass freely through a suction aperture of such increased size encountered in commercial liquid concentrated fertilizers.
However, as an added precaution against possible clogging of the suction aperture 31 by solid or semisolid particles of unusually large size, I have provided means for increasing the suction, or partial vacuum, developed in the suction aperture-3'1 by passage of the fan-shaped sheet 17 over the upper end thereof For this purpose, I have provided a recess 41 of peculiar form and arrangement in the distribution surface '16. In general configuration this recess 41 is in the form of a segment of a circle, and wedge shaped, having an arcuate side 43 and a straight side orchord 42, and so arranged within the distribution surface 16 that the chord thereof which represents its straight side 42 extends perpendicularly with respect to the axis of the jet 15, as is clearly shown in Figure 4. The transverse axis of the segment, corresponding to a diameter passing through the middle of the chord 42 and the middle of the arcuate side 43, lies parallel to the axis of the nozzle 14 and the jet which issues therefrom, and in the same vertical plane. From the straight side 42, the recess 41 extends with its curved or arcuate side 43 rearwards, i.e., towards the nozzle 14, the recess gradually increasing in depth toward the nozzle 14. On either side of the transverse axis of the recess, the'walls forming the arcuate side 43 diverge, at constantly decreasing angles, with reference to said transverse axis, but such angles of divergence are always greater than the angle of divergence of the walls provided by the flanges 67. Consequently, the fan-shaped sheet 17 of diluent liquid first encounters the arcuate side 43 of the recess 41, and,
subsequently thereto, passes over the recess 41 and lastly the nozzle axis intersects the distribution surface 16 substantially at the edge 42. Because of the angle formed by the axis of the jet 15 and the surface 16, the jet 15 .initially contacts the surface 16 a short distance upstream of the aperture 31, so that the stream of Water is flattened and forms a film travelling at high velocity over the leading edge of the arcuate side or wall 43.
islocated entirely within the recess 41 and is disposed tangentially with respect to the arcuate side 43 thereof.
,Moreover, the upper end of the suction aperture 31 is located in that portion of the recess 41 which is first encountered by the sheet 17 of diluent liquid passing over the recess 41. That is to say, the point of tangency between the upper end of'the aperture 31 and the recess 41 is at the outer end of a radius of the arcuate recess 41 which is perpendicular to the straight edge 42 of the latter. The bottom of the recess 41 is disposed. angularly with respect to the plane of the distribution surface 16. The straight edge 42 of the arcuate recess is preferably Within the mentioned plane with the result that at this portion of the recess it is of zero depth; but from the straight edge the recess is of gradually increasing depth in the direction toward the nozzle 14, with the result that the suction aperture 31 is located in the deepest portion of the recess. Extensive experimentation has demonstrated that the exact angulan'ty of the bottom of the recess 41 with respect to the plane of the distribution surface 16 is a matter of considerable importance in so far as the efficiency of the recess 41 in increasing the vacuum developed by the fanshaped sheet 17 .in passage over the aperture 31 and the recess 41 is concerned. If the recess 41 is of uniform depththroughout .its entire area with respect to the plane of the surface 16, it seems to have no effect whatsoever upon the amount of vacuum developed within the suction aperture 311, but'its influence in increasing the vacuum increases as the pitch of the bottom of the recess with respect to the plane of the surface 16 increases to approximately to 6; and then if the pitch is increased beyond that point its efiiciency in increasing the vacuum again decreases. Accordingly, the optimum angularityof the bottom of the recess 41 with respect to the plane ofthe surface 16 seems to be of the orderof 5 or 6 with the deepest portion of the recess at that sidethereof which is proximal to the nozzle 14 and with the opposite, or straight side of the recess actually lying within the plane of the surface 16. I
As has been pointed out hereinabove, the relatively large cross-sectional area of the suction aperture 31, as well as the precise shape and arrangement ofthe recess 41 both operate to increase the vacuum or suction excited by the fan-shaped sheet 17 upon thecolurnn of liquid within the projection 32 and suction tube 33,-and thereby ensure that the flow of concentrate through the suction aperture 31 will be maintained in spite of the presence therein of relatively large particles of solid or semi-solid matter. However, so eflicient is this combination of increased diameter of suction aperture 31 and the described shape and arrangement of the recess 41, that too great a quantity of concentrated liquidwill be aspirated to combine with the diluent liquid formost purposes, unless additional means be provided to restrict the fiow of concentrate through the suction'aperture 31. Here again it has been necessary to conduct a long and extensive series of experiments to find means for so restricting the flow through the suction aperture without decreasing the eifective size thereof; and the flow-restricting means which I have developed and adapted to the present device constitute another of the important details of the present invention. Due to the limitations of drafting, this detailed structure is diflicult to illustrate otherwise than in a highly enlarged view; consequently, in describing this feature reference will be had to Figure 8 of the drawing with the understanding, however, that the same feature is present, not only in the model illustrated in Figures 5 to 8, inclusive, but also in the modification illustrated in Figures 1 to 4, inclusive.
These two modificationsof the device of the present invention are of substantially the same form, the principal difference between the two being that the modification thus far described, i.e., that of Figures 1 to 4, inclusive, is all of one piece, preferably a die-casting, whereas the modification of Figures 5 to 8, inclusive, comprises a preferably die-cast body portion 51 with a separately made head 52 rigidly secured thereto upon the upper surface .of a platform '53upstanding from the mainpartof the body portion 51. .The head'SZ, instead of 'beingma'de of the same die-cast metal as that of which -the-bodySLis formed, is. preferably a suitable 'thermo-setting,,plastic compound. The head 52, after havingbeen suitably ma chined, is attached rigidly and preferablypermanentlyto .the upper surface of the platform 53 as by a plurality of ldowels or lugs 54 integral with .the' head'SZ and projecting downwardly from its under-surfaceto be received within complementary and similarly arrangedusockets or recesses in the body'Sl. 'Some or all-oftliese dowels 54 may extend all'the way through the bodySl so that their lower ends can be upset or riveted in contact withv the under surface of the head, as indicated atf'56. "In addi tion, the body 51 is provided with a central opening51a and the head 52 is. provided with a -mating depending flange 52a.
In this modification of the device, thedistribution surface 16', suction aperture 31 and vacuum-increasing recess 41 are formed in'tne separate head52j but. aside from this, they preferably are ofidcntical shape,.size and arrangement with the correspondingportions-of t-hepreviously described modification. Anadvautage of forming them in or on the separate, plastichea'clisthatthe platsic with the nature of the corner at the intersection .of.the
upper endcf suction aperture 31. (31) witlrthe bottom of the recess 41 (41). THere again,..extensiveexperi mentationhasproven that ifthisan gle is verysharpihe concentrate will be drawn upwardthroughthe suction aperture31 (31) at the maximum rate as determined by .the size of the suctionaperture 31 (?rl") .and.the sizeand arrangement andshape of-the recess 41 (41). However,
if the angle at the top of the suction aperture 31 (31') .is rrounded off, as indicated at 151i, into acurved surface gradually merging at its lower ends-with the wallof .the suctionnaperture 31 (31') Handatits upper end into'the plane of the bottom of the recess 41 (41') the quantity otliquid drawn upwards through the suction aperture will be materially decreased, the rate of suchdecrease being substantially proportional to the length of theiradius about which the curved surface of the corner or'angle 61pxtends. Moreover, in order to attain such control ofthe rate at which concentrate is drawnupwards, this curved or rounded .cornerneed occur only on that side'of-the suction aperture 31 (31) which is remote from theznozzle through which the. diluent liquid is jetted.
A surprising feature of this rounding oftthe corner-as indicated at 61, and one which adapts it pecuriarly to the purposes of the present invention, is that it makes possible the regulation of rate at which concentrate is drawn upward through the suction aperture 31 (31') and consequently upon the degree of concentration of the ultimate, sprayed liquid, without having any effect upon the suction or partial vacuum established within the suction aperture 31 (31'), Consequently, this means of regulating the rate of how of the aspirated concentrate has no detrimental effect upon the capability of the apparatus for use in diluting and spraying liquid concentrates which contain particles of solid or semi-solid matter. Another detail which should be mentioned in connection with the rounded, flow-regulating corner 61, is that it is principally, if not entirely, effective in regulating rate of flow of the concentrate when it occurs on that side of the suction aperture 31 (31) which is remote from the nozzle 14 (14) through which the diluent liquid is jetted. However, another extremely important advantage is gained by extending the rounded corner 61 throughout as much of the entire extent of the upper end of the suction aperture from the nozzle '14 or 14 as the case might be) edge of the suction aperture 31 (31') it contributes to a very substantial and valuable extent to the evenness with which the concenrtate is distributed throughout the enire width of sheet 17 of diluent liquid passing over the suction aperture 31 (31') and recess 41 (41').
In this connection, it should also be pointed out that the size of the recess 41 (41) is another detail which has a distinct bearing upon the evenness with which such distribution is attained. If this recess is relatively large, say, for example, that the diameter of this semi-circular recess is from three to five times the diameter of the suction aperture 31 (31'), it will be much more effective in attaining evenness of distribution than if it is proportionately smaller with respect to the diameter of the suction aperture.
Instead of providing a manually operable valve whereby flow of diluent liquid through the jetting orifice or nozzle 14 (14) can be controlled, I have provided an air inlet orifice 66 (66) leading laterally from one side of the device into communication with the suction orifice 31 (31). This permits the maintenance of atmospheric pressure within the upper end of the suction aperture 31 (31) and consequent breaking of the vacuum therein, when the outer end of the air inlet orifice 66 (66') is open to the atmosphere, Under such conditions, the device can be used as an ordinary garden spray to supply water for the purpose of irrigation when the device is attached to the end of a conventional garden hose. Then, when theoperator wishes to apply fertilizer or insecticide, depending of course upon which 'type of liquid is carried within the reservoir jar or bottle,
all he must do is apply his finger to the outer end of the air inlet orifice 66 (66'). This will break the con nection between the ambient atmosphere and the interior of the suction aperture 31 (31'), permitting the vacuum to develop therein and consequent aspiration of the concentrated liquid upwards into the fan-shaped spray or sheet 17 of the diluent liquid.
Both of the constructions illustrated include side flanges 67 (67') at opposite sides of the distributing surface 16 (16'). These side flanges diverge from a point immediately adjacent the orifice 14. Also the side flanges increase in height as they diverge. The side flanges con-fine the spray to the distributing surface 16 (16'),
It will be observed that the recess 41 (41) occupies a major portion of the width between the side flanges 67 (67'). As a consequence side streams which would be lacking in entrained chemical are deflected into the mainstream. This is important, particularly when a: at spraying plants with chemicals which are intended to remain on the foliage. Otherwise, the chemical free side streams tend to wash the chemical from the'foliage. While particular embodiments of this invention have been shown and described, it is not intended to limit the same to the exact details of the constructions set forth, and it embraces such changes, modifications, and
equivalents of the parts and their formation and arrangement as come within the purview of the appended claims.
