MULTIPLE LIQUID DISPENSING CONTAINER Filed April 1'7. 1950 IN VEN TOR.

ALFEED G.

BY HUENEEGAEDT -A TTORN'E-V- Patented Dec. 8, 1953 UNITED I STATES PATENT OFFICE MULTIPLE LIQUID DISPENSING CONTAINER 1 Alfred G. Huenergardt, Beverly Hills, Calif.

1 Application April 17, 1950, Serial No. 156,330

2 Claims. ('01. 2.22 129) mixture (such as an emulsion of lanolin and other ingredients) is contained in the other compartment.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide,

a multiple liquid dispensing container that may be used to dispense two liquids into the palm of q the hand at closely spaced positions, so that they may be readily rubbed into an intimate mixture. To this end, the invention contemplates a container which embodies an outer shell which may be of cylindrical or other rounded form, and a flat partition disposed substantially diametrically within the said shell, the shell having a reduced neck portion terminating in a pair of nozzles disposed on each side of and close to the plane of said partition, and the partition extendin into the reduced neck portion so as to extend the compartmentation up to the nozzles.

Another object of the invention is to provide such a dispensing container having means for normally sealing the two nozzles so as to close the container and prevent any interchange of the two liquids between the two compartments of the container.

Another object is to provide such a container which is of relatively simple and inexpensive construction.

Other objects will become apparent in the ensuing specifications and appended drawings in which:

Fig. 1 is an axial sectional view of a container embodying" my invention, taken transversely through the partition thereof;

Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view of the same taken on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, looking upwardly; Fig. 3 is a transverse sectional view of the same taken on the line 33 of Fig. 1, looking downwardly;

Fig. 4 is a plan view of the reduced neck portion of thecontainer; and

5 is an enlarged detail sectional View of one of the nozzle members.

As an example of one form in which the invention may be embodied,- I have shown in the drawin a multiple compartment, multiple liquid dispensing container embodying an outer shell which is formed in several sections including a cylindrical body portion ID, a top section I I and a base section l2, and including a flat partition l3 which divides the container into compartments l4 and I5 respectively;

The top section II includes a flange IE to receive the upper end of cylindrical body section It, an inwardly extending top wall l1, and a reduced neck I 8 extending upwardly from wall l1. Neck l8 has an external thread l9 adapted to be threaded into a cap 20. Cap 20, as shown, is constructed from wood with a metal or plastic lining 2! which is provided with an internal thread to cooperate with thread I9 of neck Ill.

Lining 2| has a flat top wall against. which is V seated a gasket disc 22.

Bottom member I2 is in the form of a disc having a pair of upwardly extending flanges 23 and 24 at its rim, the flanges 23 and 24 being radially spaced to define an annular groove which receives the lower extremity of cylindrical body sec-, tion ill. Bottom l2 also has a pair of spaced straight flanges 25 extending from side to side thereof, spaced on either side of a diameter thereof. The flanges 25 define a flat diametric groove which receives the lower end of part1:

tion I 3.

All sections of the container are constructed plastic resins, such as a polyvinyl acetate, is suitable for this purpose. The upper extremity of cylindrical body section II] is secured within flange l 6 by a known bonding process such as by softening the respective walls with a solvent for the plastic and then assembling them and allowing the softened surfaces to harden and adhere to each other. In a similar manner, the lower end of cylindrical body section [0 is secured between flanges 23 and 24 and the lower end of partition [3 is secured between flanges 25. The

side edges of flanges l3 are in a similar manner bonded to the inner wall of cylindrical shellsection 10 and top member I I. The upper extremity of partition I3 is of reduced width to fit snugly between the respective sides of the inner wall of neck l8 and is bonded thereto in a similar manner. The upper extremity of partition [3 is bonded to the under face of the top wall 26 of neck member l8.

Referring now to Figs. 4 and 5, top wall 26 has therein a pair of circular apertures 21 (Fig. 5) in which are mounted a pair of nozzles 28 and 28' of grommet form. Nozzles 28 and 28 have flanges 29 which seat against top wall 26. The nozzles 28 and 28' are sealed in openings 21 by a bonding process similar to that described above. As they may be noted from an inspection of Fig. 1. the outer diameters of nozzles 28 and 28 are the same but the inner diameters thereof are different. The opening in nozzle 28' is calibrated,

for example, to pass the proper quantity of a thin liquid such as alcohol while the opening in the nozzle 28 is calibrated to pass the thicker emulsion of lanolin and other ingredients, so that any shaking motion of the bottle will eject therefrom the proper proportions of the two liquids.

The gasket 22 of cap 26 seats against flanges 29 of the two nozzles 23, 28' so as to seal the space between the gasket and the top wall of neck 88 against any intermingling or leakage of the liquids when the cap is in place. When the cap is removed, the flanges 29, both disposed in a common plane, function to convey the two liquids to the palm of the hand without the liquids escaping and splashing out of the hand. To this end, the customary method of using the dispensing containers is to cup the palm of one hand and, V

holding the dispenser in the other hand, to tap the neck lightly against the cupped palm so as to eject the two liquids therein.

By using the insertable grommet form of nozzles 28, 28', any desired calibration of the two openings may be obtained, while the apertures 21 may be standardized to a single selected diameter. Thus it is possible to develop the identical container into a container for hair tonic or a container for other incompatible liquids, as may be desired, the only change being in the nozzles.

I claim:

1. In a dispensingcontainer for simultaneously dispensing two incompatible ingredients such as a lanolin bearing oil and an aqueous liquid of a cosmetic preparation, said ingredients to be mixed upon application to the skin, said dispensing container being composed of several sections of syn thetic resin plastic material including: an outer shell comprising a bottom section having a marginal flange and an upwardly opening integral channel extending diametrically across the upper side of said bottom, a tubular lateral wall section joined to said bottom flange at its lower end, and a-top section having a marginal flange joined to the upper end of said lateral wall section and embodying an integral neck of reduced diameter relative to its said marginal flange; a partition extending diametrically across said outer shell and dividing it into two compartments, with its lower end secured in said channel and its lateral edges bonded to the inner wall of said tubular lateral wall portion, said partition having a portion of reduced width projecting upwardly into said neck and bonded to the inner lateral wall thereof; said neck having a flat end member provided with dispensing outlets located on opposite sides of said partition and communicating with the respective compartments, one of said outlets having an area materially greater than that of the other outlet, in a proportion such as to effect the ejection of proportional quantities of the respective liquids with the larger outlet accommodating the more viscous liquid and the smaller outlet providing restricted passage for the thinner liquid, said end wall being adapted to be tapped against the palm of one hand to effect said ejection, said outlets being immediately adjacent said partition so as to be closely spaced, and said end wall, around said outlets lying substantially in the plane of the outer extremities of said outlets whereby to engage the palm of the hand with a sealing contact such as to provide a small enclosed and sealed space into which said liquids may be delivered without splashing out of the hand.

2. In a dispensing container for simultaneously dispensing two incompatible ingredients such as a lanolin bearing oil and an aqueous liquid of a cosmetic preparation, said ingredients to be mixed upon application to the skin, said container being composed of a number of sections of synthetic resin plastic material including: an outer shell comprising a bottom section having a marginal flange, a tubular lateral wall section joined to said bottom flange at its lower end, and a top s'etcion having a marginal flange joined to the upper end of said lateral wall section and embodying an integral neck of reduced diameter relative to its said marginal flange; a partition ex tending diametrically across said outer shell and dividing it into two compartments, with its lower end secured to said bottom and its lateral edges bonded to the inner wall of said tubular lateral wall portion, said partition having a portion ofreduced width projecting upwardly into said neckand bonded to the inner lateral wall thereof; said neck having a flat end member provided with a pair of apertures located on opposite sides of said partition and communicating with the respective compartments; and a pair of nozzles each includ ing a cylindrical tubular portion secured in a respective one of said apertures and a thin fiat: radial flange portion seated against the outer wall of said end membeigthe tubular portion of one of said nozzles being relatively thin and that of the other nozzle being relatively thick, whereby said tubular nozzle portions define outlets one of which is of substantially greater area than the other, in a proportion such as to eflect the ejection of proportional quantities of the respective liquids, with the larger outlet accommodating the more viscous liquid and the smaller outlet providing restricted passage for the thinner liquid, said end wall being adapted to be tapped against the palm of one hand to effect said ejection, said outlets being immediately adjacent said partition so as to be closely spaced, and said end wall,-

.7 around said outlets lying substantially in the plane of the outer extremities of said outlets whereby to engage the palm of the hand with a sealing contact such as to provide a small enclosed and sealed space into which said liquids may be delivered without splashing out of the hand,
