Figure ’7 is a side elevation of the attachment. 50 Figure 8 is an exploded perspective view of a delivery hose and faucet coupling therefor. vFigure 9 is an enlarged sectional View of ra. modiiied inlet port. 55 l sponding parts throughout the several views in Referring to the drawings in detail, A desig ' The primary object of the invention is the pro~ 5 vision of an attachment of this character, where in liquid, such as beer or other beverages, within 15 (o1. 215-4) Similar reference characters indicate corre ceiving the lug I2 to prevent the turning of this 15 rected bottom flange I1 this lying beneath the bead or rib II on the neck Ill and .affords a seat for a resilient gasket I8 to prevent the ring from damaging the bottle neck `III when wearing such . ring. These parts I6 at their ends carry external ears I9 accommodating adjusting screwsA 29, these being in threaded engagement with the ears on one part and loosely engaged with the ears on the other part of said ring so that in this manner the ring can be made secure about the neck I0 of the bottle A. Swingingly connected with the adjusting screws'Zll> are binding posts 2l having threaded thereon winged nuts 22, the posts being received in seats 23 provided in the periphery of the cover I3 and in thismanner by a tightening of the nuts 22 against the cover I3 it can be firmly sealed upon the mouth end of the bottle, there being provided in this cover I3 a sealing gasket 24 which rests upon the upper edge of the neck Ill of the bottle A and thus a seal can be had between the neck I0 and the cover I3 to 40 avoid any leakage at such point. Secured to the cover I3 is a spigot or faucet like body 25 having a flow passage 26 there through to a discharge nipple 21, this being a part of the body 25 and in this passage 26 is a valve seat 28 engageable by a valve 29 having a feed screw stem 30 so that the valve 29 can be moved to or away from the seat. The stem 30 extends without the body 25 and is fitted ex ternally of the latter with a handle 3| for manual 50 manipulation thereof. The valve 29 controls the ñow of liquid through the passage 26 in the dispensing of such liquid from the bottle A. There is ñtted in the passage 26 a tube 32 which extends downwardly into thebottle A close to its 55 2 2,100,990 bottom for directing the flow of liquid within the corresponds to the nipple 44 serves as an inlet bottle to the passage 26 in the body 25. The nipple 21 carries a separable coupling 33 for a supply hose 34 of ñexible kind. The hose at its outer end has fitted therewith a dual cou nipple containing an inlet port 52 and a com pressor coupling tip 53, the latter being equipped with a return check valve 54 so that air from a compressor (not shown) can be drawn into the pling including the parts 35 and 36, respectively. nipple 5I to place the contents of the bottle A 'I‘his coupling including the parts 35 and 36 is under pressure and in the use of the compressor serviceable for the attachment of the hose to a dispensing faucet (not shown) of a bar fixture the operation of the pump is> entirely dispensed with, this being the oase when the capacity of the equipment is increased. 10 The vacancies as provided by the mutilated or to a container from which the liquid is dis pensed into the bottle A. Mounted upon the cover I3 is an air pumpof the hand operated piston type, its barrel 31 be- ' ing connected with a union 38 which is made se 15 cure in the cover I3 and the piston 39 operates within said barrel 31. The stem 46 of the piston outside of the barrel 31 carries a handhold 4| so that the pump can be manually operated. The barrel 31 of the pump is built with an air 20 feed «nozzle 42 which extends into the union 38 and is equipped with a return check valve 43 so that air from the pump will enter the bottle A through the union 38 and will be checked against return ñow. In this manner the contents of the 25 bottle A can be placed under pressure for the dispensing of such liquid. bead or rib II ances for the I3 to the said The liquid on the bottle neck l0 affords clear post 2| when fastening the cover bottle neck. contained within the bottle A is dispensed therefrom through the spout 55 and the 'flow 0f such liquid is controlled by the valve 29 as herein before described. This spout 55 is applied when the hose 34 is removed. What is claimed is: 20 Means for mounting a pump and faucet pres, sure-tight upon a container, including a cylin drical neck integral with the container, an an nular bead extending circumferentially around the neck about midway between the container ~ The union 38 has and the rim of the neck, said bead having a pair formed therewith a pressure release extension of gaps disposed diametrically opposite each other or nipple 44l having an outlet port 45 whichis controlled by an adjustable needle valve 46 the same being manually regulated and this valve engages a seat 41 provided within the nipple 44. On engagement of the Valve 46 with the seat 41 the outlet port 45 is closed so that pressure can not escape therethrough. The nipple 44 is equipped with a pressure gage 48 of any stand ard type so that the pressure within the bottle A can be readily determined therefrom. The air passing through the nipple 44 will escape through the port 45 to the atmosphere. In the union `38 40 concentrically of the nozzle 42 and formed in the bore of said nipple is a chamber 56 so that air under pressure within the bottle A can make its escape about the nozzle 42 to the atmosphere through the port 45. It is, of course, under 45 stood that the pressure within the bottle A can be relieved on the opening of the port 45 and in doing this the bottle A can be readily filled to the desired level therein. ' ' Vv'hen the pump is operated it places the con 50 tents of the bottle A under pressure. The at tachment is serviceable in the dispensing of beer or other liquid beverages. K therein, a lug on the neck rising from the bead midway between the gaps and extending to the top of the neck, a disc cover for supporting the 30 pump and faucet on the neck having a skirt tele scopioally receiving the neck, there being a notch formed in the skirt receiving the lug'and an choring the cover against rotation, a clamp ring having a pair of half circular sections encircling the neck and having inwardly directed bottom ñanges disposed beneath the bead, a resilient gasket on the flanges engaging underneath rand embracing the bead and preventing the clamp ring from damaging the neck, the clamp ring sections having perforated ears disposed at the gaps in the bead, adjusting screws for drawing the` ears together to tighten the clamp ring, binding posts pivoted at the lower ends on said adjusting screws, the cover having a peripheral flange provided withv seats receiving theupper ends of the binding posts, nuts on the binding posts engaged with the cover to hold the cover tightly down upon the neck, and a gasket be tween the cover and the rim of the neck com pressed by the cover to prevent pressure leakage from the container.
