y. 1 Claim. (01. 221-9s)
This invention relates to dispensing devices,
and more particularly to such as are for the dis
pensing of granular materials, especially soap
The objects of the vinvention are to provide
a non-clogging dispensing device of the char
acter indicated; to exclude moisture'from the
10 container; to provide for ready ?lling; to confine
the mechanical moving parts to attachment upon
or with respect to a metallic cap; to thus provide
for a removable part for ?lling which screws
into the metallic cap; to mount the device for
15 oscillatory inversion by means of said metallic
cap; to provide for limiting oscillation by stops on
said metallic cap; to provide an operating lip on
said cap; to discharge a limited quantity of the
granular material while measuring the next
20 quantity to be discharged; to secure simplicity
of construction and operation; and to obtain
other advantages and results as may be brought
out in the following description.
having an edge collar or rim l1 encircling said
neck. At diametrically opposite positions next
the- lower edge of this rim H are radially pro
jecting pintles l8, l8 which enter the aforesaid
alined pivotal supports of the yoke arms H. 5
Above these pintles are horizontally and radially
disposed ears l9, [9 which serve both as shields
to the pivotal mounting and as stops to limit the
oscillation in both directions- Preferably, the
pintles and ears are integralparts of the metallic l0
At the mid part of the cap is provided a thread
ed opening 20 of a size appropriate as a ?lling
opening for the container. This opening, while
the device is in dispensing assembly, is normally 15
closed by a plug 2| having external threads to ?t
those of the opening and having a shouldered
spout at the exterior top side of the‘cap It.
Within the‘ container, axially disposed with re
spect to the plug, is a measuring cup 22 the 20
upper edge of which is soldered, brazed, welded or
otherwise secured in the lower end of the plug.
This cup is shown cylindrical with a closed lower
end 23 integral with the cylindrical side walls.
The inside center of the lower end 23 is shown 25
with a depression 24. Near the upper end of the
cylindrical wall of this measuring cup 22 are pro
vided a plurality of holes 25 therethrough around

lar material into the cup in operation.
Within the cup, coaxial therewith but of less

In the speci?c embodiment of the invention side diameter of the cup and spaced from the
illustrated in said drawing, the reference numeral I bottom or lower end 23 of the cup about the 40
l0 designates a base or mounting member here same distance as the peripheral separation of
indicated as of the nature of a wall bracket with the funnel head from the cylindrical cup wall.
In use, the receptacle is tilted, as by a lip- 28

projecting forwardly from the lower front edge
portions of which constitute alined pivotal sup
ports for an oscillatable receptacle l2. It is from of the cap, and preferably an integral part there- 45
this receptacle l2 and by virtue of its oscillation with. The oscillation will substantially invert
that the granular material, such as soap powder, the receptacle through nearly 180° displacement
Figure 1 is an elevation ‘of a dispensing device,
in its normal position, embodying my invention;
is dispensed.
Receptacle l2 preferably comprises a globular,
glass or other container 13 having a neck I 4 at
one‘ part which for convenience will be termed
the top- of said container. This neck ll! of the
container is cemented or otherwise secured, pref
erably permanently, within a downwardly di
55 rected hollow or dome l5 of a metallic cap 16
until ear l9 strikes the yoke arm. Such inver
sion of the receptacle causes the granular con
tents of the container to move toward and rest 50
upon the inside of the inverted cap. The ma
terial accordingly has been actuated toward the
holes 25 in the cup 22 and both because of the
force developed and because the material then
surrounds the cup, material enters the cup 55
through said holes. When the receptacle is al
lowed to swing back to its normal position, the
material thus received in the cup falls to the
bottom thereof and enters, in considerable pro
portion, under the ?are of the funnel head. The
next inversion of the receptacle causes the mate
rial opposed to the funnel head to ?ow out
through funnel tube 26 and central passage 21
of the plug to discharge for use. The same in
version which thus discharges a supply of mate
rial also obtains introduction of a measured or
limited reserve into the cup ready for the next
inversion and discharge.
I wish to emphasize that the receptacle com
15 prises a preferably glass container with only the
one engagement with the metal parts, namely
around the neck of the container. The cap pro
vides the means for p-ivotally mounting upon‘ the
yoke, for e?ecting the limitation of oscillation,
for receiving the plug made removable for re?ll
ing purposes, and for providing the protruding
lip by which the user imparts the oscillatory
movement. The construction is simple and
rugged and provides a trap construction at'the
25 bottom of the cup by which moisture is pre
vented from entering into the container. Fur
ther, since the granular materials resting in the
bottom of the cup will absorb some moisture
entering the tube, it is preferable to prevent any
30 of this material returning into the container.
This result is secured by spacing the holes 25 ;a
short distance from the upper end of the cup, so
that, when the cup is inverted the material there
in not passing out of the funnel tube but remain
ing in the cup will fall to the end of the cup to
ward the plug and not be opposite the holes.
I claim:
A dispensing device comprising an invertible
receptacle having a container for material to be
dispensed, a. cap at the top of the container hav
ing pivotal supporting means thereon whereby 10
the receptacle may be oscillated, said cap having
a central opening provided with internal screw
threads, a discharge plug having external screw
threads adapted to be ?tted within the central
opening of said capv and having a central passage 15
longitudinally thereof within said cap and con
tainer, said plug having a downwardly depend
ing and vertically disposed cup with a closed
bottom and openings towards the top thereof for
receiving the material therein, a discharge funnel
?xedly secured within the bottom of the plug
and in alignment with the central passage and
extending downwardly and parallelly within the
said cup and adjacent the bottom thereof, and
said funnel having a flared end at the bottom 25
whereby when oscillating the receptacle the ma
terial received through the openings in the cup
will be discharged outwardly through the funnel
and central passage of the plug.
