ERNEST ARNOLD, OF PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 652,992, dated July 3, 1900.
Application filed March 22, 1900. Serial No. 9,688. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, ERNEST ARNOLD, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Measuring-Faucets, which improvement is fully set forth in the following specification and accompanying drawings.
My invention consists of a measuring faucet or device formed of a measuring vessel, an inlet-nozzle, a discharge-faucet, and means for connecting the cap and base of said vessel with the body thereof, said nozzle carrying a socket for the engagement of the connectingrod employed, and said nozzle is equipped with a nut for the engagement of an implement whereby the nozzle may be rotated, said nut forming a shoulder by which the nozzle is seated on the cap, so as to have a bearing thereon and limit its descent on the capfand permits the rotation of said rod in assembling and clamping the vessel, cap, base, and nozzle.
Figure 1 represents a vertical section of a measuring-faucet embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a partial top view and partial horizontal section on line a: :20, Fig. 1.
Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.
Referring to the drawings, A designates a measuring vessel, the same consisting of a body A, formed of transparent material, with graduations B thereon, the cap 0, the base D, the connecting-rod E, the supply-nozzle F, the discharge faucet or cock G, and the airvent H. The nozzle enters the body A through the opening J in the cap 0 and has in its upper end the flange K, which by means of the union or coupling L firmly connects the nozzle with the cock M of a barrel, keg, &c., from which the vessel A is supplied, the port of said nozzle communicating with said cock and the interior of the body,it being noticed that the vessel is suspended from said cock. One end of the port in said nozzle is in communication with the cock M, so as to be supplied from the latter, and the other end is in communication with the measuringvessel, so as to supply the latter at top and avoiding a valve of any construction within the vessel A, and said nozzle, which is stationary on the cap, is utilized as the means of attachment of the upper end of the rod E.
On the exterior of the nozzle, above the cap 0, is the shoulder N, which is seated upon said cap around the opening J thereof and forms the base of the nut P, whereby the nozzle may be rotated in order to cause the rod E to tighten the cap and base on the body A, as will be hereinafter more fully eizplained.
Formed on the lower end of the nozzle F is the interiorly-threaded socket Q, and rising from the base D is the interiorly-threaded socket R. Into these two sockets are fitted the threaded ends of the connecting-rod E, it being evident that in assembling the parts the said rod is screwed to the socket Q and the rod and nozzle introduced through the opening J in the cap 0, so that the lower end of said rod may engage with the socket R. Then the nozzle is turned, when the rod fully connects the opposite parts and retains the same on the body A, when a wrench or other implement is applied to the nut P, so as to properly tighten the cap and base on the body, it being noticed that in the rotation of the nozzle its shoulder N rides on the cap, so that it has a proper bearing thereon and cannot lower farther into the cap, it being also seen that the nozzle is utilized for supporting the socket Q,'the latter being, in fact, integral with said nozzle.
The base D has the boss S on the side thereof, the same forming a connection for the faucet G, said boss being in communication with the interior of the body A, so as to direct the fluid to said faucet.
The operation is as follows: The cock M is opened and the faucet G closed, when the fluid from the barrel, &c., flows through the cock and the bore of the nozzle F into the body A, it being noticed that the terminal of the bore of the nozzle is at the side of the latter, so as to fill the body from the top thereof. When a quantity of the fluid is desired, the cock is closed and the faucet opened, when the fluid discharges through said faucet, into a suitable receptacle, the graduations B be ing watched so that the proper quantity of the fluid is withdrawn, when the faucet is roe closed and the cock again opened, whereby the body A is filled from the barrel, &c., as before and so remains charged.
Of course the entire amount of fluid in the body A, the same representing a given quantity, may be withdrawn at one operation, if so desired.
Having thus described niyinvcntion, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. A measuring-body, a cap, a base and a discharge-faucet thereon, a nozzle provided with a port open to the supplying-cock and to the interior of said body, a socket in the under portion of said nozzle, and a clampingrod connected with said socket, and a socket in said base, said nozzle being rotatably mounted in said cap.
2. A measuring-body, a cap, a base thereon,
