Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 9, 1909.

Application filed Idarch 28, 1908. Serial No. 423,869.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Enwnv J. FnAzmn, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Buffalo, in the county of Erie and State of New-York, have invented a new and Imroved Multiple-Fluid Sprayer, of which the ollowing is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to certain improvements in Sprayers or atomizers of that type in which a plurality of containers are emplo ed, whereby any one of a plurality of difl erent fluids ma be sprayed from a single'device and un er the influence of a single air jet.

My invention involves details of construction, whereby the air nozzle may be brought into proximity with any one of the nozzles for the fluid being sprayed, in a very sim le and efficient manner.

ify sprayer is primarily designed for spraying paints or colors where it is desired to frequently change the color employed, but it is evident that it may be used for spraying anlya other kinds of fluids. v eference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corres onding parts in all the figures, and in which- Figure 1 is a side elevation of a device constructed in accordance with my invention; Fig. 2 is a view similar to Fig. 1, but showing certain of the parts in section; Fig. 3 is a top plan View of the device; Fig. 4 is a vertical section on the line 4-4 of Fig. 2; Fig. 5 is a top plan view showing a modified form of construction; and Fig. 6 is a side elevation :of a partof the apparatus shown in Fig. 5.

In my improved sprayer I' employ a plurality of receptacles, each adapted to contain a difierent'material to be s rayed and all mounted in a frame, whereby the liquid may be sprayed from any one of the receptacles. As shown, I provide a plurality of bottles 10, each having the neck thereof screwed into a collar 11 carried by a top plate 12. The plate is provided witha hub 13, adjacent its center, and this hub is connected to a tube 14 rotatably mounted on a central air pi e 15. The lower end of the tube 14, may, 1f desired,have a separate section 16 in threaded engagement there with, whereby upon rotating the section 16,

' the latera the total length of the tube may be varied to adjust the'elevati-on of the plate 12 and the receptacles depending therefrom. The

lower end of the air pipe 15 is connected by a suitable elbow 17 to an air pipe 18, designed for connection with a hose or other suitable means for delivering air under pressure thereto, and between the elbow and the lower end of the sleeve section 16 is a collar 19 servin to support said sleeve. The collar is prefera ly formed integral with an arm 20 carried by the main handle 21 at the lower end of the latter. extends u ward to above the plate 12 and farm 22 at the upper end of the handle connects the same to the upper surface of the plate 12. Above the plate the arm 22 is adapted to receive and retain an air discharge nozzle 23, which latter is operatively connected to the up er end of the central or pivot pipe 15. Tlire'aded to the The handle 21 i upper end of the pipe is a tubular member flange enga es with the upper surface oi the plate to hol the latter against vertical movement in relslpect to the pipe. The inner end of the tub ar member 24 constitutes a valve seat for a valve 27, which latter is connected .by a coil spring 0 a valve stem 28 having sliding enga mi ht through the tubular member and t ugh an o ening in the upper surface of the nozzle. y depressing the valve stem, the spring is compressed and the valve 27 forced firo'm its seat. The nozzle is secured to the arm 22 and held in place 1) a cover section 29, which upon the remova of the securing screws 30 at the. front end thereof, may be moved back upon its pivot 31, as

- indicated-in dotted lines in Fi 1, so as to permit of a removal of the nozz e. on the pivot 31 is also a lever arm 32, one end of which is in engagement with the upper end of the valve stem and the other end of which is'pivoted to the end of an'arm 33 carried by a thumb piece 34. The latter is pivoted at the upper end of the handle 21 and normally held outward by the action of a suitable spring. By forcing the thumb piece inwardly toward the handle, as indicated in dotted lines in Fig. -1, the valve stem is depressed and the valve opened. 4

The plate 12 carries not only the threaded collar 11 into which the bottles are screwed,

Mounted but also carries a plurality of downwardlyextending bosses 35, into which are secured tubes 36 leading to approximately the bottoms of the several bottles. From each boss a passage leads outwardly to the edge of the plate, and on the plate at the end of each of said passages is a nozzle 37, turned up in the form of an elbow and terminating adjacent the tip of the air nozzle 23. The terminal portion 38 of the air nozzle and the terminal portion 39 of the collar nozzle are preferably threaded to the body portions of the nozzles, so that by rotating them, they may be brought into the desired adjustment in respect to each other. By rotating the body of the nozzle 37, the terminal portion thereof may also be adjusted laterally to a slight extent. The plate, as previously stated, is freely rotatable on the air pipe 15, so that 'any one of the nozzles 37 may be brought adjacent the air nozzle 23.

For holding the parts in the desired position during the use of the device, the inner end portion of the arm22 preferably carries a depending sprin -pressed dog 40, as shown in Fig. 4, and this 0g is adapted to enter into any oneof a plurality of apertures 41 in the upper surface of the plate 12. These apertures are so disposed that when the dog enters any one of them, the corresponding liquid-discharge nozzle will be closely adjacent the air-discharge nozzle.

Various modifications may be made in the specific construction of the mechanism an particularly in the details of the discharge nozzle.

In Figs. 5 and 6, I have illustrated one modification in which the air nozzle 23 suports upon the upper surface thereof and adacent the point, a separate li uid nozzle 37. Only one liquid nozzle is use for all of the rece tacles and is carried directly by the air noz e. In using this modified form of construction, the nozzle 23 and its attaching parts are removed from the plate and tube and the device shown in Fig. 6 inserted in .place thereof. Each of the terminals 39 of the liquid nozzles are removed and short hose sections 42 are substituted in place thereof- The end of an one of the several hose may be secured to t e liquid nozzle 37, so that the liquid from any one of the several containers may be sprayed.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new anddesire to secure by Letters Patent:

of said air nozzle being disposed in proximity with any one of the first-mentioned nozzles.

2. In combination, a rotatably mounted y, a separate lscharge nozzle for each container, and an air delivery nozzle above said late and adapted for disposition in proximity with any one of said first-mentioned nozzles.

3. In combination, a. plate, a plurality of containers depending therefrom, a plurality of nozzles carried by said plate and communicating with the several containers, and an air delivery nozzle mounted on said plate, said late being rotatable to bring any one of the irs't-mentioned nozzles into proximity therewith.

4. In combination, a plate, a plurality of containers depending therefrom, a plurality of tubes depending from said plate and within said containers, passages through said plate communicating with said tubes, noz zles at the outer ends of said passages and an air nozzle adapted for use in connection with any one of said first-mentioned nozzles.

5. In combinati'on, an air deliverypipe, 0. plate rotatably mounted thereon, a pluralit of containers carried by said plate, a plura ity of nozzles for said containers, and an air delivery nozzle above said plate and in communication with said air pipe, said firstmentioned nozzles being brought into proxplate, a pluralit of containers carried thereimity with said air delivery nozzle upon the having an air nozzle at one end thereof and j disposed at an angle thereto, a platefrotatably mounted upon said pi e, a plurality-of containers depending there cm, a plurality of nozzles carried by said plate and communicating with the interior of said containers, a valve controlling the passa e of air from said pipe to said nozzle, a han la in engagement with said pipe below said containers and in engagement with said air nozzle, and means carried by said handle for operating said air valve.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
