MEANS Fon MAKING BUTTER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N0. 755,256, dated March 22, 1904.
Application filed. October 20, 1902. Serial No. 127,943. (No model.)
Toa/ZZ whom it may concern:
Be it known thatLOHARLEs M. TAYLOR, Jr., a citizen of the United States, residing at the city of Philadelphia, in the countyrof Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented new and useful Means for Making Butter, of which the following is a specification.
The object of the present invention is to provide comparatively inexpensive, convenient, and sanitary means for rapidly and economically producing or making butter.- To these and other ends hereinafter set forth the invention, stated in general terms, comprises the improvements to be presently'described and nally claimed.
The nature, characteristic features, and scope of the invention will be more fully understood from the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings, forming part hereof, and in which- Figure 1 is a central sectional view of means embodying features of the invention, showing the same assembled ready for use; and Fig. 2 is a view showing, principally in perspective, the various parts which when assembled make up the device shown in Fig. 1.
In the drawings, A1 is an open-top receptacle or pan, as of tin or other suitable material. As shown, theside walls of the pan lare arranged at right angles in respect to the bottom thereof.
2is a sheet,'as of sterilized textile material. It is shown as provided with patches or portions 3, of pile or loops, which are separated by bars 4 and marginal parts 5, of plain material. This sheet 2 may be folded at the bars 4, so as to constitute a pad which can be laid in the bottom of the receptacle 1, and this sheet 2 may be spread out and washed or otherwise cleansed, if necessary.
6 is a box adapted to lit the pan 1 and to be supported by the pad. This box is composed of material which possesses the property of separating upon its surface the butter and permitting the fluid or other constituents of the cream to penetrate it. Blotting-paper is an example of such material, and it can be folded up into the required shape and thrown away when rendered unfit for further use.
In practice the parts are assembled as shown in Fig. 1, and, if desired, use may be made of clips, as 7, for securing the sides and ends of the open-top box 6 in proper position in respect to the sides and ends of the pan 1. These f clips 7 do 'this by embracing or holding between their parts both of 'these sides and ends. Cream is placed in the box 6, and by reason of its property above referred to the fluid constituents pass through it and are taken up by the pad, while the butter remains in the box. By taking up the fluid constituents the pad promotes or facilitates the separation. The butter is removed from the box 6, for example, by holding the box in inclined position and causing the butter to turn into a roll which can be readily lifted from the box, or this operation can be accomplished in any preferred manner.
It will be obvious to those skilled in the art to which my invention appertains that modications may be made in detail without departing from the spirit thereof. Hence I do not limit myself to the precise construction and arrangement of parts hereinabove set forth, and illustrated in the accompanying drawings; but,
Having thus described the nature and objects of my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. Means for making butter which comprise a pan, a pad consisting of a folded an absorbent sheet and arranged in the pan, and a box` permeable by the fluid constituents of cream and impermeable by the butter constituents thereof and arranged in the pan above the pad, substantially as described.
2. Means for making butter comprising a pan, a pad consisting of an absorbent sheet provided with pile or looped faces separated by bars adapted to be folded and unfolded, said pad arranged in the pan, and a box' arranged in the pan and on the pad and permeable by the fluid and impermeable by the buttery constituents of cream, substantially as described.
3. Means for making butter comprising the combination of two boxes nested together and whereof the inner one is permeable by the fluid and impermeable by the buttery constituents of cream, and a pad interposed between the bottoms of said boxes, substantially as described.
4. Means for making butter comprising the combination of tWo boxes nested together and whereof the inner one is permeable by the fluid and impermeable by the buttery constituents of cream, a pad interposed between the bottoms of said boxes, and means for securing together the side and end Walls of said boxes, substantially as described.
5. Means for making butter comprising the combination of a pan having its side and end Walls vertical in respect to its bottom, a textile pad consisting of a sheet having pile or looped parts separated by plain bars and adapted to be folded, and an open-top box consisting of folded paper and adapted to iit upon the pad and in the pan, substantially as described.
6. Means for making butter comprising the combination of a pan having its side and end Walls Vertical in respect to its bottom, a textile pad consisting of a sheet having pile or looped parts separated by plain bars and adapted to be folded, an open-top box consisting of folded paper and adapted to flt upon the pad and in the pan, and clips for connecting the side and end walls of the pan and box, substantially as described.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto signed my name.
