SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 350,675, dated October 12, 1886. Application filed May 8, 1886. Serial No. 201,530. (No model.

To all whom it may conczrn:

Beit known that I, Tnonas H. IIATHAWAY, of New Bedford, in the county of Bristol and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new and Improved' Filling Apparatus, of which the followingis a full, clear, and exactdescription.

The object of my invention is to provide a new and improved apparatus for filling liq-' uids and other substances into any desired number of bottles or other receptacles in the same time that it would require to fill one bottle or receptacle.

The invention consists of various parts and details and combinations of the same, as hereinafter more fully described, and pointed out in the claim.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of. reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.

Figure 1 is a front elevation of myimprovement, partly in section. Fig. 2 is a sectional plan viewot' the same on the line a: w of Fig. 1.

The receptacle A, of any desired capacity and approved construction, is mounted on the standards or legs B, set on the table 0, supported in any desired manner. To the inside of the bottom of the receptacle A is fastened the plate D, provided with the apertures E, placed in one or more rows on the said plate 1). A plate, F, having apertures G, corresponding with the apertures E of the plate D, is placed on top of the latter, and is provided with a downwardly-cxtending bolt or pin, H, fastened in any desirable manner to the plate F, but preferably in the manner as shown in the drawings, in which the bolt H is provided with a square head, ll, which tits into a corresponding recess in the covering-plate I, secured to the plate F. The plates D and F are ground upon their contacting surfaces, and are held together by a nut, J, screwed on the bolt H and against the under side of the plate D. The lo wer part of the bolt H passes through the table 0, and to its lower end is fastened an arm, K, having a handle, L. The stoppins M, secured to the table 0, limitthemove ment of the arm K. The apertures E in the plate D continue through the bottom of the receptacle A, and each opens into a funnel orspout, N, secured to the bottom of the receptacle A.

in the receptacle from passing through the said apertures E and G. The bottles or other receptacles Q are now placed on the table 0, with their top openings under the funnels or spouts N. The number of bottles or recepta clcs Q corresponds with the number of funnels N. The operator now moves the arm K into the position shown in full lines in Figs. 1 and 2, whereby the apertures E and G come over each other, so that the substance in the receptacle A passes through the apertures E audit and the spouts or funnels N into the bottles or receptacles Q. As the latter are of the same size, they fill up at the same time, so that the operator only watches the filling of one bottle or receptacle Q. and when this is done he moves the arm to the position shown in dotted lines in Fig. 2, so as to turn the plate F, and thereby cuts off the apertures G from the apertures E. All the bottles or receptacles are thus filled at the same time.

The plate D may be made to form the bottom of the receptacle A.

All leakage is prevented, as the adhesion between the ground contact-surfaces of the plates D and F (which adhesion is increased by the weight of the substance in the receptaclc) is sut'licient to prevent the substance from entering between the said plates.

Having thus fully described my in vent-ion, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent In a filling apparatus, the receptacle A, the plate D, having apertures E, and the funnels or spouts N, in combination with the plate F, having apertures G, the bolt H, the nut J, and the arm K, moving between the stoppins M, substantially as shown and described.
