Brosh and George J. Brosh, Norway, Iowa Application June 15, 1935, Serial-N0. 26,881 ‘ 1 Claim. 5 10 15 20 (01. 137-68) This invention relates to apparatus for "em balming bodies, and an object of the invention is to provide an apparatus of this character where by embalming ?uid can be injected into the body without occupying the continuous attention of the mortician leaving the latter free to attend to other duties incidental to the preparation of the body. Brie?y, the invention consists of the provision of a reservoir for holding the embalming ?uid, conduit means for delivering the ?uid from the reservoir, which conduit means is adapted to be connected with trocars or needles for injecting the ?uid into the body, and ?oat control means for cutting off the ?ow of ?uid from the reservoir, said latter means being adjustable so that the apparatus will operate to cut off the ?ow after a predetermined amount of the ?uid has passed into the body. The invention together with its objects and ad vantages will be best understood from a study of the following description taken in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein: Figure 1 is a view mostly in elevation of the 25 improved apparatus the reservoir for the em balming ?uid being shown in section. Figure 2 is a top plan view of the apparatus. Figure 3 is a perspective view of a ?oat and associated parts. Referring to the drawings by reference nu merals it will be seen that 5 indicates generally a reservoir for the embalming ?uid. In the bottom of the reservoir 5 is an outlet 6 to which is suitably connected a nipple ‘I that in turn is connected 35 through the medium of a T ?tting 8 with one end of a ?exible hose or conduit 9 and also with one end of a pipe conduit indicated generally by the reference numeral I0. In the ?tting 8 there is 30 provided a suitable manually operable valve l I. Extending down into the reservoir 5 through the top thereof and in alignment with the outlet 6 is a pipe l2. The pipe i2 is connected at its upper end with, the upper end of the piping 10 through the medium of elbows I3, I4, and a pipe 45 section I5. Also, provided at the upper end of 40 the pipe I0 is a valve [6 having a crank arm I’! to which is connected one end of a spring l8 that is anchored at its opposite end by a hook l9 provided on the piping In. Spring I8 normally acts on the lever IT to move the valve I6 to a closed position. 5 For releasably holding the valve l6 in an open position there is provided a latch member 20 piv oted at one end to the elbow l4 and provided with a. lateral hook-like projection 2i that engages a pin on the end of ‘the valve handle I‘! in a man ner clearly shown in Figure 1 for releasably hold ing the valve t6. in open position. Rising from the pipe section I5 is a vshort stand ard 22 to which is pivoted a rocker arm 23. At 5 one end the rocker arm 23 is connected with the latch member 26 through the medium of a link or ?exible element 24. At its free end the rocker arm 23 is provided with an eye 230. through which operates a stem 25. 10 On the lower end of the stem 25 is a ?oat 26. On the upper end of the stem 25 is a vertical series of spaced openings through a selected one of which is passed a cotter or other suitable pin 2'1, which upon downward movement of the float 26 15 is adapted to engage the eye equipped end of the rocker arm 23 for rotating the latter to release the valve arm I‘! in a manner hereinafter made manifest. ' For guiding the ?oat 26 there is provided a pair 20 of guide wires 28 that operate through apertured ears 29 projecting from the ?oat 26. At their respective opposite ends the wires 28 are ?rmly connected with the diverging arms of upper and lower brackets 30, 3|. These brackets, 30, 3| 25 have sleeve-like intermediate portions which em brace the pipe l2 and are secured in contacting position about the plate through suitable fasten ing means 32 (see Figure 3). Also in the pipe line In there is provided a 30 manually operable valve 33 and a sight glass 34. The ?exible conduit or hose 9 is also connected at one end with a bulb 35 and to the opposite side of this bulb is connected one end of a ?exible conduit section 9a that is adapted to be con- 35 nected with a trocar or needle usually provided for injecting ?uid into the body. In actual practice the reservoir 5 is ?lled to the desired level and the pin 2'! is inserted in the selected aperture 25a. provided in the stem 25. 40 The latch 20 is engaged with the handle'l‘i and valve II is closed. When it is desired to cause a ?ow of ?uid from the reservoir to the body valve 33 is opened and the bulb 35 is compressed in amanner to create 45 a suction which will result in a drawing of the ?uid from the reservoir 5 through the pipe l2, the pipe I0, the conduit 9, and bulb 35, the ?uid, ?nally passing through the conduit section Go 50 and the trocar or needle into the body. Obviously as the ?uid level in the reservoir 5 falls, ?oat 26 will move downwardly carrying with it the stem 25 through the eye 230.. This will ?nally result in an engagement of the pin 21 with the eye equipped end of the rocker arm 23 and a 55 2 2,066,925 subsequent rocking of the arm 23 in a counter clockwise direction. Upon a rocking of the arm 23 in the direction stated latch 20 will be moved out of engagement with the arm I‘! of valve l6 whereupon the valve under action of spring 18 will move to a closed position for cutting off the flow of embalming ?uid. Thus with this appara tus the embalmer may set the same so that a predetermined amount of ?uid will ?ow from the reservoir into the body, thus permitting the“ mor tician to attend to his other duties, without‘ main taining a constant watch ovér the injecting of the embalming ?uid. h To drain the reservoir 5 of any remaining ?uid, 15 valve II is opened and the ?uid will then di‘ain' through the outlet 6 and valve II and into a suitable receptacle through the ?exible conduit 9. It will also be apparent that such a device can be readily set for operation and that the same will act e?‘iciently to shut off the ?ow of the ?uid when a predetermined amount of ?uid has been drawn from the reservoir. Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is: In an embalming apparatus of the character described, a reservoir for embalming ?uid, and siphoning means for withdrawing ?uid from the reservoir including a conduit having an end ter minating within the reservoir, a valve arranged in the conduit externally of the reservoir, a latch device mounted on the conduit and engageable with the valve for releasably retaining the same in open position, a ?oat to rest on the ?uid within the reservoir, an operating connection between 10V the ?oat and the latch device for releasing the latch incidental to a lowering of the ?uid level within the reservoir, together with means‘ con‘; nected with the valve normally urging the latter to closed position and means for supporting the 15 conduit relative to the reservoir and comprising a drain pipe leading from the bottom of the reser voir and communicating with said conduit where by said conduit beyond the valve serves as a con tinuation of the drain and a valve in the drain 20 between the conduit and the reservoir.
