CHARLES J. WALZ, OF NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, ASSIGNOR TO WEST DISINFECTING COMPANY, A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, CHARLES J. WALZ, a citizen of the United States, residing at New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Disinfectant- Holders, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to an improvement in disinfectant holders, that is, holders for liquid disinfectants adapted to discharge the disinfecting material drop by drop into a water closet, urinal or other receptacle, the object being the production of a simple device by which the contents of the holder will be completely, but slowly discharged and at the desired point; and the invention consists in the construction hereinafter described and particularly recited in the claim.
My invention is illustrated in preferred form in the accompanying drawings, where- 1n Figure 1 is a side elevation; Fig. 2 is a partial sectional view of the top fastening of my casing; Fig. 3 is a front View of the container with the casing in section; Fig. 4C is a plan View from underneath; Fig. 5 1s a sectional view of the lower part of the device; Fig. 6 is a sectional view on the line ab of Fig. 5; and Fig. 7 is a side view of the wick-container tube detached.
In carrying out my invention I employ a backing 2 of wood or other suitable material formed at its upper end with a notch 3 and a plate t secured to the face of the plate with an opening 5 into the notch 3. This notch 3 provides means for interlocking the lip 6 formed in the top 7 of the casing 8, to the backing 2, the casing being provided with a number of perforations. Secured to the bottom of the backing is a bracket 9 having a shelf 10 and an outwardly and downwardly projecting flange 11, the casing 8 being adapted to rest upon this flange l1, and the casing is provided with a corresponding flange 12 which may be coupled with the flange 11 by a padlock 13 or other suitable means. In the bottom of the casing near the front is a discharge opening 14, and in the inner edge of the bottom are discharge notches 15 and 16 for the purpose as will hereinafter appear.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Application filed September 30, 1908.
Patented May 10, 1910. Serial No. 455,529.
Resting upon the shaft 10 and secured thereto by a bolt 17 is a cup 18 from the bottom of which extends a discharge nipple 19. The shelf 10 is provided at its outer edge with a notch 20 through which the nipple 19 extends, and so as to be in line with the discharge hole 14. The shelf is also provided with holes 21 and 22 in line with the notches 15 and 16, and so that the cup may be turned to cause the discharge nipple 19 to pass through either the holes 21 or 22 so as to discharge the contents through the notches 15 and 16, this being the case when a lead pipe is employed to conduct the disinfecting material from the holder to any desired point. \Vithin the cup 18 is a discharge chamber formed by an upwardly extending wall 23 and at the bottom of the wall and opening into the cup 18 are discharge openings 24 more or less in number. Surrounding the outer face of the wall and covering the discharge openings 24L is a fabric band 25.
The disinfectant receptacle preferably consists of a glass jar 26 the mouth of which is closed by cup 27 the center of which is threaded to receive a nipple 28 in which is mounted a discharge tube 29 which extends into the jar and is formed with a return branch 30. In this tube 29 and branch 30 is a wick 31 which extends through the nipple upward through the tube 29 and downward through the branch 30, and is exposed in the jar near the cap. For convenience a plug 32 may be arranged to provide admission to the tube 29 and branch 30. The jar is inverted and rests upon the wall 23 of the discharge chamber. The contents of the jar will feed through the wick 81 and enter the discharge chamber from which it passes through the openings 24 and through the band 25 into the cup 18 from which it drops through the nipple 19, and from that through one of the discharge openings in the bottom of the casing according as the cup is turned.
I claim A device of the class described comprising in combination a bracket having a shelf and an outwardly projecting flange below it, said shelf having a plurality of discharge openings, a discharge cup revolubly secured upon said shelf and having a nipple adapted to In testimony whereof, I have signed this register with either of said discharge openspecification in the presence of tWo subscribings at Will by appropriate revolution of ing Witnesses. said cup, a container supported above said cup, and means for slowly discharging said Vitnesses:
