-1'0 claims. (Cl. 62-91)
My invention relates to means for cooling and
dispensing drinking water,- and has for its prin
cipal object, the provision of a relatively simple,
practical and inexpensive structure, including an
olla, and the construction of the cooler such as to
automatically induce a iiow or draught of air over
the entire exterior surface of the olla in order to
bring about the evaporation of the moisture on
the surface of the olla, and thereby producing a
10 marked cooling effect on the body of Water con
tained Within the olla.
Further objects of my invention are to generally
improve upon and simplify the construction of
the existing forms of drinking water coolers, to
provide a cooler having a jacket or cover for the
olla, and the construction of which cover or jacket
is such as to accommodate ollas of different‘size's,
and further, to provide a cooler of the character
referred to that presents a neat and finished ap~
pearance, and which greatly facilitates and ex
pedites the assembly of the cooler and its delivery
and installation for use.
~
With the foregoing and other objects in view,
2 Ul
my invention consists in certain novel features of
construction and arrangements of parts that will
be hereinafter more fully described and claimed
. and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in
which:
,
Fig. l is a front elevational viewA of a water cool
er constructed in accordance with my invention.
Fig. 2 is a vertical section taken on the line
2_2 of Fig. 1.

is a circumferential row of apertures I 6.
These openings formed in the jacket near its
upper and lower ends permit air to enter and
circulate freely in the annular space between the
wall of the jacket and the olla that is positioned
therein.
Adjustably mounted within the jacket I4, a
short distance above the lower series of apertures 10
I5, is a member that provides a base or support
for the olla that occupies the upper portion of
the chamber within `the jacket, and this base
comprises a disc I1, preferably formed of sheet
metal, and said disc being díshed so that it gradu~ 15
ally declines from its outer edge to its center, thus
permitting any water that may accumulate on
said base to iiow by gravity to the center thereof,
and to_discharge through an opening IB that is
formed at the center.
Projecting upwardly and outwardly from the
margin of the base I1 is a curved wall I9, in which
is formed a series of air circulation openings 2li,
and which latter are positioned a short distance
above the air inlet openings I5, in the wall 4of the
jacket.
' Projecting upwardly from the upper end of this
curved wall I9, is a short circular wall 2l that lits
directly against the inner face of the wall of
jacket’lll, and formed through this wall 2! are two 30
or more circumferentially disposed rows of aper
tures 22.
Passing through the Wall of the jacket I?, and
disposed at suitable distances apart, are bolts 23
that pass through certain of the apertures 22 in 35
wall 2l.
Fig. 5 is an elevational View of a plate that func
tions as a closure for the opening in the cover
that accommodates the tap or faucet.

Referring by numerals to the accompanying
drawing which illustrates' a preferred embodi
ment of my invention, I0, I0 designate the legs
of a supporting structure, and secured to the in
termediate portions of said legs, is a horizontally
disposed frame Il that provides a `support for a
jar or other receptacle I2 that receives the drip
or waste water.
cumferential row of apertures I5, and formed
through the wall ofthe jacket near its upper end,
'
Suitably secured to the upper ends ofthe legs
I0, is a ring I3. The jacket that vpractically en
closes the olla comprises a vertically disposed cy
lindrical body I4, preferably formed of sheet met
al, and open at both ends. Formed through the
55 wall of this jacket adjacent its lower end, isa cir
By providing two or more rows of the
apertures 22, the position of base Il may be ad
justed vertically within the jacket, and secured in
the desired adjusted position.
Removably positioned on top of the base il,
and extending across same, are two or more wires
24, the ends of which are extended into certain of
the apertures 2U, and resting on these wires is
the bottom of an olla 25 of conventional shape and
construction.
45
Thus the bottom of the olla is maintained a
short distance- above the inclined surface of the
base I1, so that any water that may drip off the
olla inay readily flow downwardly over the in
clined surface of the base, and pass through open~ 50
ing I8 into the jar I2. In order to firmly support
the olla 25 in centered position on the base, the
lower ends of springs 26 are secured to the bolts
23 that adjustably connect the base Il to the
jacket I 4, and the ends of the bolts 23 that project 55

After >the base I1 has been produced and the
through these springs receive nuts 21. The upper
portions of the springs 26 are curved inwardly to
Ward the center of the jacket, so as to yieldingly
rest upon the intermediate portion of the body of
the olla, thus effectively holding the latter against
apertures formed therein, said base is dipped in a
galvanizing bath, so as to provide a protecting
coating for all of the edges and surfaces of said
base, and thus the development of rust on any
any lateral shifting movement upon the base.
portion of the base is prevented.
The depending flange of the ring cover 28 that
Removably positioned on the upper end of the
jacket I4, is a ring cover 28, the inner edge of
which terminates adjacent the upper end of the
neck of the olla, and resting on the upper end of
the neck of the olla and the adjacent edge of the
cover 28, is a packing ring or gasket 29, prefer
ably of rubber, which serves as a bearing for the
Water bottle B that is supported on top of the cool
er in inverted position. (See Fig. 2.)
Seated in the lower portion of the Wall of the
olla, is a tap or faucet 30 which projects out
wardly through an opening 3| that is formed` in
the wall of jacket I4. 'I‘he positions of these
20 faucets in the ollas vary slightly, some faucets
being slightly higher than the others, and to
accommodate this variation of the position of the
faucets, the aperture 3| in the wall of the jacket
is in the form of a short vertically disposed slot.
In order to cover this slot so as to produce a
neat and finished appearance of the jacket
around the faucet, a plate 32, preferably of sheet
metal and finished to correspond with the finish
of the jacket, is provided in its central portion
is positioned on top of the jacket, is made suffi
ciently long to enable said cover to be raised for
an inch or two While positioned on the jacket,
thereby providing an additional adjustment for
the accommodation of ollas of extra length.
When the cooler is set up for use, and the olla
is filled, or partially filled, from an inverted Wa
ter bottle positioned on top of the cooler, as 15
illustrated in Fig. 2, the water will, in a short
time, permeate the Wall of the olla so that a con
siderable degree of moisture accumulates on the
outer surface of the olla, and as the air circulates
over the moist surface of the olla, evaporation of 20
the moisture takes place which automatically
exerts a cooling effect on the Water contained
within the olla.
The construction of the cooler is such that it
may be readily assembled or taken part, and 25
when properly set up for use, and with the olla
positioned o_n the base and firmly held by the
springs 26, the entire structure may be readily
lifted, handled and .transported as a unit, so as
In the application of plate 32 to the outer face
to greatly facilitate loading and unloading on 30
delivery trucks, and while being delivered or car
ried to the point of use.
Thus it will be seen that I have provided a
drinking water cooler and dispenser that is rela
35 of the jacket with the faucet 30 projecting
tively simple in construction, inexpensive of 35
30 with a short slot or notch 33 for .the accommo
dation of the faucet, and secured to the rear face
of this plate, are the central portions of a pair of
horizontally disposed metal straps 34.
through notch 33, the ends of the straps 34 are
bent toward each other, and after being inserted
through the slot or opening 3|, the ends of said
straps are bent outwardly away from each other,
40 so that they lie immediately against the inner
face of the jacket wall, thus holding the plate»
32 in proper position upon the projecting portion
of the faucet 3IJ. (See Fig. 4).
The length of plate 32 is such as to cover the
slot or opening 3 I, regardless of the vertical posi
tion of the faucet 30 in said slot or opening.
Suitably secured to the lower portion of the
jacket I4, directly below the faucet 30, is a short
trough 35, the outer portion of which serves as a
50 support for a drinking glass, and the inner por
tion of this trough terminates above the jar I2,
so that any Water that is wasted while drawing
water from the faucet will pass through said
trough and discharge into said jar I2.
When my improved water cooler is set up for
use with the olla positioned on the base, there is
a continuous chamber between the wall of the
olla and the Wall of the jacket, and air circulates
through this chamber and through the openings
60 I6, 20 and I5. This circulation of air is effective,
in causing evaporation of the moisture on the
surface of the air, and such evaporation draws
heat from the olla so as to materially lower the
temperature of the water contained therein, so
65 that comparatively cool water is obtained when
drawn from the olla through .the faucet.
By providing two sets of apertures 22 in the
flange 2|, with said sets at different elevations,
the base I'I may be adjusted vertically, so as to
70 accommodate ollas which may differ slightly in
length. The bottom of the base I'I declines in
all directions toward the central opening I8, so
that any drip from the surface of the olla will,
by gravity, drain to the outlet I8, and pass from
75 thence into the jar I2.
manufacture, and very effective in performing
the functions for which it is intended.
The entire structure is very compact, and when
properly finished, presents a neat and attractive
appearance.
