V INVENTOR@I‘777 I Patented June 14, 1938 2,120,566 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,120,566 CONTAINER CLOSURE AND’ EJEOT‘OR Gustave 0. Matter, Portland, Oreg. Application February 2,1937, Serial No. 123,636 5 Claims. ing the ejector from the container the contents will be ejected in several amounts, each equal to ejects several successive amounts of the contents ejector is pulled farther out. The‘ ejector may have only one plate 5 and the operation would be the same but the amount of contents ejected from the container I would depend upon the angle of the container and the distance the ejector is pulled 10 out of the container, especially so if the contents of a container by a single operation of the device. A further object is to provide a device which will agitate the contents of a container and thereby 10 accumulate the contents ready for ejection. A considerable variation in form is possible with my new invention and in the accompanying draw ing some of those forms are illustrated. In the accompanying draWing,-— 15 Fig. I is a sectional view of a portion of a con tainer showing the closure and ejector in non— ejecting position. Fig. II is a sectional view taken on line II—II of Fig. I. 20 Fig. III is a side elevation, partly in section, of the container shown in Fig. I, showing the closure removed therefrom and the ejector in operation. Fig. IV is a sectional view of a portion of a con tainer and another form of ejector. 25 Fig. V is a sectional view of a portion of a con tainer showing the closure and ejector in non ejecting position similar to Fig. I but showing an other form of ejector and means for operating same. . Fig. VI is a top plan view of Fig. V. Fig. VII is a sectional View of the container shown in Fig. V showing the closure removed from the outlet and the ejector in operation. Referring to the numerals on the drawing, in 35 Figs. 1, II and III a container is indicated by I, with an outlet 2, a closure 3 for the outlet 2, an ejector comprising bars 4 secured to closure 3, and plates 5 secured to bars 4. In Fig. IV the container 6 has an outlet 1, an 40 outlet closure 8, a bar 9 secured to the closure 8, and a cupped ejector l 0 secured to the bar 9. In Figs. V, VI and VII the container II has an 30 outlet 12, an outlet closure l3 which has an arm l4 terminating in a tab l5. The arm M is piv 45 otally mounted on the container II as shown at It‘, a spring I? normally holds the closure [3 against the outlet l2, a bar i8 is secured to the closure l3 and ejector plates. H] are secured to the bar l8. 50 (Cl. -221—104) My invention is a closure and ejector for a con tainer and is arranged to eject a desired amount of the contents of the container when the closure is removed from the outlet of the container. Another object is to- provide a device which As shown in Figs. I, II and III operation is ac complished by holding the container l in approx imately the position shown in Fig. III and gradu ally pulling out the closure 3. The space between the ejector plates 5 may be equal to or less than 55 the length of the outlet 2 and by gradually pull the amount between the plates 5 and each suc ceeding plate 5 will prevent any more of the con tents from coming out'of the container until the are of an easy ?owing type. As shown in Fig. IV the container 6 may be in a vertical position as shown and the closure 8 pulled up and thereby raising the bar 9 and ejector 15 ID, with a portion of the contents, through the outlet 1, the amount of contents removed from the container 6 will be that which the ejector I0 is capable of retaining. As shown in Figs. V, VI and VII the container 20 H is held in the position shown in Fig. VII and pressure on the tab I 5 removes the closure l3 from the outlet l2, thereby pulling the bar l8 and ejector plates l9 through the outlet l2 with the same e?ect described in connection with Fig. III. 25 The ejector bar l8 and plates l9 tend to agitate the contents of the container ll thereby causing an accumulation toward the outlet l2. Only one of the ejector plates l9 may be used instead of a plurality as shown, with the same effect as de 30 scribed in connection with Fig. III. By releasing pressure on the tab IS the spring I‘! actuates the arm l4 and forces the closure l3 against the out let [2. My invention is susceptible of various other 35 modi?cations which will be apparent to anyone skilled in the art. What I claim is:— 1. An ejector for a container having a discharge opening, said ejector comprising a closure there for, means for moving the closure to and from the opening, members attached to the closure and extending into the container and movable in and out of the container in accordance with the move ment of the closure to and from the discharge 45 opening, and blades in spaced relationship with one another mounted on said members, said blades serving to expel products in the container to and out of the discharge opening. 2. An ejector for a container having a discharge 50 opening, said ejector comprising a closure there for, supporting means attached to the closure and extending into the container and movable in and out of the container in accordance with the move ment of the closure to and from the discharge 55 2 2,120,566 opening, and a blade mounted on said supporting means, said blade serving to propel products in the container to and out of the discharge opening. 3. An ejector for a container having a discharge opening, said ejector comprising a support mem ber, a plurality of measuring members mounted on the support member and moving one after '10 another toward and through the discharge open ing as the support member is moved out of the discharge opening. 4. An ejector for a container having a discharge opening and a closure therefor, a plurality of blades attached to the closure, said blades being spaced from one another and being spaced con secutively from the closure, and being arranged to move toward and through the discharge opening one after another when the closure is removed from the discharge opening, and when passing through the discharge opening having their planes at substantially right angles to the axis of the discharge opening. 5. An ejector for a container having a discharge opening and a closure therefor, a plurality of measuring members attached to the closure and normally residing in the container when the clo sure is in a position closing the discharge opening, said measuring members being spaced in consec 10 utive order from the closure and designed to draw measured amounts of products in such container to and out of the discharge opening, the amounts measured being the quantity of products entering between the respective measuring members. 15 GUSTAVE O.
