JOSEPI-IUI. BEAUMONT, OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA.
Letters .Patent No. 91,899, dated June 29, 1869.
IMIEROVEMENT IN FUNNELS.
The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.
To all whom 2' t 'may concern Be it known that I, JOSEPH I. BEAUMONT, of St. Paul, in the county ot Ramsey, and State oi' Minnesota, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Air-Escape Funnels; and I do hereby declare that thev following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the saine, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, forming part oi this specification.
rlhe figure is a perspective side view of my improved funnel.
My invention has for its object to improve the constructionof my improved air-escape funnel, patented July 7, 1868, and numbered 79,799, so as to make it simpler and cheaper iu construction, and equally or more convenient in use; and
It consists in providing the outer side oi the neck, and the lower part of the body of thefunnel, with a series of wire rods, as will be hereinafter more fully dei scribed.
along the body A for at least one-third of the distance ii'om the neck B to the upper edge of the said body A. .It desired, the wire rods C may be lreplaced by strips of metal of any suitable form, soldered, brazed, or otherwise securely attached to said funnel, in an upright or spiral position, as may be desired.
The wire rods G should be as nearly equally distant from each other as'may be, and the number of wire rods used must depend upon the size of the funnel.
By extending the wire rods O up the 'sides of the Y body A, of the funnel, the said funnel is adapted for use in vessels having various-sized orifices, for should the orifice or mouth of the vessel, for filling which' the funnel is to be used, be much larger than the neck B of the funnel, the said funnel will rest upon the parts of the wire rods C that extend up along the sides'of the body A, so that the air-passages will still be kept open. v
By this construction the air-passages will notbe liable to become choked or filled, and will allow the air' to escape freely intil the vessel is entirelyfilled.
I am aware that fnnnels have been made with corrugated necks and bodiesbut this I do not claim.
NVhat I do claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The funnel, having the outer surface ofthe neck B, and the lower part of the bod-y A, provided with a series of wires or strips C, arranged as described for the purpose specified.
JOSEPH I. BEAUMONT.
