No drip suck back units for glue or other liquids either separately installed with or incorporated into no drip suck back liquid applying and control apparatus
US 3895748 A
Resumen
A separate or incorporated no drip suck back unit for use with a liquid applying apparatus, wherein materials moving relative to the apparatus are selectively spotted, beaded or coated with a liquid, such as glue or plastic, through one or more nozzles, and wherein the no drip suck back unit prevents excess liquid from flowing or dripping from the apparatus during periods when no liquid is being applied. The unit consists of a housing with two interior passageways, one for liquid and the other for air, separated by a flexible diaphragm. The liquid being applied flows through the liquid passageway on its way to the nozzle. During application, compressed air is introduced into the air passageway, thus flexing the diaphragm away from its median position and reducing the volume of the liquid passageway. When application is stopped, the air passageway is vented to the atmosphere, thus reducing the pressure therein and permitting a spring to return the diaphragm to its median position. This return motion of the diaphragm increases the volume of the liquid passageway and draws the liquid back away from the nozzle so that no drip occurs.

[57] ABSTRACT A separate or incorporated no drip suck back unit for use with a liquid applying apparatus, wherein materials moving relative to the apparatus are selectively spotted, beaded or coated with a liquid, such as glue or plastic, through one or more nozzles, and wherein the no drip suck back unit prevents excess liquid from flowing or dripping from the apparatus during periods when no liquid is being applied. The unit consists of a housing with two interior passageways, one for liquid and the other for air, separated by a flexible diaphragm. The liquid being applied flows through the liquid passageway on its way to the nozzle. During application, compressed air is introduced into the air passageway, thus flexing the diaphragm away from its median position and reducing the volume of the liquid passageway. When application is stopped, the air passageway is vented to the atmosphere, thus reducing the pressure therein and permitting a spring to return the diaphragm to its median position. This return motion of the diaphragm increases the volume of the liquid passageway and draws the liquid back away from the nozzle so that no drip occurs.

20 Claims, 12 Drawing Figures NO DRIP SUCK BACK UNITS FOR GLUE OR OTHER LIQUIDS EITHER SEPARATELY INSTALLED WITH OR INCORPORATED INTO NO DRIP SUCK BACK LIQUID APPLYING AND CONTROL APPARATUS BACKGROUND OF INVENTION As indicated in prior art US. Pat. Nos. 2,960,060; 2,650,003; 2,912,169; and 2,800,365, the stopping of a liquid flow has been attempted. However, none of the units of the prior equipment is considered satisfactory in respect to the operation of liquid applying and control apparatus, wherein the cut off of a compressed air supply is first undertaken to thereafter stop the flow of a glue or other liquid, such as set forth in US. Pat. No. 3,547,408.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION When thin, medium and thick glues, or other liquids, are being dispensed, especially glues being positioned on relatively moving materials, and the flow of glue must be cut off, unwanted dripping has been a troublesome problem. In contrast, there is no dripping, when this no drip suck back unit is operated in conjunction with liquid applying and controlling apparatus. It may be used as a separate unit of such apparatus or it may be incorporated into it. In either embodiment, there is a housing or a body having a chamber with a centrally positioned diaphragm. During application of a liquid, the diaphragm is defiectively moved to increase the airside chamber volume by directing the control compressed air into this air-side chamber. When the control compressed air is cut off, a compression spring becomes effective to decrease the air side chamber volume and at the same time to increase the liquid or glue side chamber volume. This resulting diaphragm movement, altering these air, liquid volumes, produces the immediately responsive vacuum like sucking back of i the liquid and no dripping occurs on the relatively moving material or anywhere else.

DRAWINGS Two embodiments are illustrated in the figures of the drawings. Some of the figures indicate how a separate no drip glue suck back unit, which draws back or sucks back a sufficient amount of glue or other liquid to eliminate any dripping of glue or other liquid, may be used after the glue supply has been shut down or cut off, with any glue or other liquid supply unit, such as the gluing apparatusset forth in US. Pat. No. 3,547,408. Other figures indicate how a no drip glue suck back unit, which draws back or sucks back a sufficient amount of glue or other liquid to eliminate any dripping of glue or other liquid, after the glue supply has been shut down or cut off, may be initially designed to be directlyincorporated into a modified gluing apparatus, as set forth in US. Pat. No. 3,547,408.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Separate No Drip Suck Back Unit for Glue or Other Liquids Arranged with Liquid Applying and Control Apparatus In FIGS. 1, 2 and 3, the separate no drip suck back unit 20 for glue or other liquids is illustrated. In FIG. I, it is assembled with other components; such as the dual nozzle head 22 having the two nozzles 24, 26, the control unit 28, a compressed air line 30, and a glue or other liquid supply line 32. In FIG. 2, the no drip suck back unit 20 is shown assembled, but before its installation, indicating about its exterior the location of the diaphragm 34, the opening 36 to receive the adjusting screw 38, the liquid or glue opening 40, the top body portion 42, the bottom body portion 44, and the assembly fasteners 46. In FIG. 3, some of the parts illustrated in FIG. 2, are shown in an exploded view, which also includes other parts, not seen after an assembly of the separate no drip suck back unit 20. For example, the diaphragm return compression spring 48, secured to the diaphragm 34 by fastener 50 is shown in this exploded view, and also the air opening 52.

Incorporated No Drip Suck Back Unit for Glue or Other Liquids In FIGS. 4, 5 and 6, the incorporated no drip suck back unit 56 for glue or other liquids is illustrated. In FIG. 4, it is assembled with other components, such as the quadruple nozzle head 57, a compressed air line 94, and a glue or other liquid supply line 32. In FIG. 5, the incorporated no drip suck back unit 56 is shown assembled, but before its installation, indicating about its exterior the location of the diaphragm 34, the opening 36 to receive the adjusting screw 38, the body portions 58, 59, 60 and 62 and assembly fasteners 46. In FIG. 6, some of the parts illustrated in FIG. 5, are shown in an exploded view, which also includes other parts, not seen after an assembly of the incorporated no drip suck back unit 56. For example, the diaphragm return compression spring 48, secured to the diaphragm 34 by fastener 50 is shown in this exploded view.

Overall Liquid Applying and Control Apparatus In FIG. 7, an overall liquid applying and control apparatus is schematically illustrated in conjunction with a separate no drip suck back unit 20. An overall arrangement for an incorporated suck back unit 56 is very similar. In a pressurized glue or other liquid pot 68, a sufficient volume of glue 70, for example, is provided. Pressurization of pot 68 occurs upon the entry of compressed air through line 72 from a compressed air supply line 74 connected to an air compressor or other source, not shown, when the regulator 76, and valve 78 are adjusted for such pressurization flow of compressed air. Such pressurization causes the glue 70 or other liquid to flow through the glue supply line 32 to the control valve 82.

The glue 70 under pressure remains available in control valve 82 awaiting the opening of a glue flow orifice 84 within this valve, as illustrated in FIG. 8, wherein the glue 70 is indicated as having been previously flowing, but the flow has been stopped. To start again, the glue or other liquid flow orifice 84 is opened, upon movement of valve stem 86, which is secured to and moves with control diaphragm 88. When solenoid valve 90 is triggered, by electrical controls indicated by coil symbol 91, compressed air from supply line 74, passing through regulator 92, continues on through solenoid valve 90 and through air line 94, to enter the control valve 82. Immediately, inside the control valve 82 is the compressed air side volume 96 of the control chamber 98. The force created by the compressed air deflects the control diaphragm 88, moving the attached valve stem 86, thereby opening orifice 84. Then glue 70 or other liquid will flow from the glue line 32, into the glue side volume 100 of the control chamber 98 and on through glue line 102 leading to the separate no drip suck back unit 20. When the solenoid valve 90 is closed, return compression spring 104 returns the control diaphragm 88 and its valve stem 86 to their closed positions, closing the glue or other liquid orifice 84. This return is aided, as air under pressure in air line 94 and in portions of the solenoid valve 90 is exhausted through exhaust air line 106, as indicated in FIG. 7. Also. as shown in FIG; 8, the control valve 82 is optionally provided with an alternate glue or other liquid port or orifice 108, which is generally blocked by a threaded plug 110, but upon removal of the plug 110, it is available during inspection, cleaning and bypass operations in conjunction with the control valve 82.

As illustrated in FIGS. 7 and 8, the glue 70 or other liquid released by the control valve 82 and moving in glue line 102, enroute to one or more glue nozzles 24,

passes through a separate no drip suck back unit, 20. When the glue is so flowing to nozzles 24, under pressure which is maintained in the glue pot 70 and also thereby maintained on through the various glue lines, 32, 102, the control valve 82 is open under the force of air pressure. The solenoid valve which also must be open at this time, is directing compressed air, via air line 94, into the branch air line 30, which in turn directs compressed air to the separate no drip suck back unit 20.

When the solenoid valve 90, through electrical controls indicated by symbol 91, is closed the compressed air in branch air line 30 is exhausted, and in the control valve 82 the glue orifice 84 is closed to stop the flow of glue or other liquid. When this occurs, then within the separate no drip suck back unit 20, as illustrated in FIG. 8, the diaphragm 34, under the differential changes in liquid and fluid pressures and under the force of compression spring 48, moves to increase the glue side chamber volume 1 18, while decreasing the air side chamber volume of the interior chamber 122. When its interior chamber 122 is so changed, the separate no drip suck back unit 20, operates to suck back, draw back, or scavenge the glue 70 or other liquid, no longer under pressure, into the created vacuum void 124 of interior chamber 122.

The Specific Operation of the No Drip, Suck Back Unit, Operating Either as a Separate or Incorporated Unit As previously reviewed in describing the overall liquid applying and control apparatus in conjunction with the illustrations of FIGS. 7 and 8, the operation of the no drip, suck back, unit 20 was described. To carry the description further, using schematic FIGS. 9, l0 and 11, the specific operation is set forth of the principal components of a no drip suck back unit, either in its separate embodiment 20 or in its incorporated embodiment 56.

In FIG. 9, the glue 70 or other liquid is being applied through nozzle 24 onto material traveling in relative motion by the nozzle 24, as indicated by the respective motion arrows. At this time, the glue 70 is under pressure in glue lines 32 or 102, coming from the supply of glue under pressure in glue pot 68, as illustrated in FIG. 7. Also there is control compressed air in air branch line 30 which is effective, within the interior chamber 122, in deflecting the diaphragm 34 against both the resisting force of the compression spring 48 and the resisting compression force of the glue 70 or other liquid under pressure. During such compressed air deflection, the compressed air side of the diaphragm 34 defines a comparatively larger compressed air volume 120 and a comparatively smaller glue volume 118, under pressure, yet the flow of the glue 70 is completely unobstructed. The glue 70 flows on reaching the nozzle 24, where it is effectively discharged onto the material 130 during the arrow indicated relative motion. I

In FIG. 10, the commencement of the cut off of the glue 70 or other liquid flow is illustrated. The electric controlled solenoid air valve 90 has just been operated to cut off the compressed air, otherwise available from compressed air line 74, and to commence to exhaust compressed air through air exhaust line 106, as illustrated in FIG. 7. This indirectly starts to reduce the air pressure in the branch air line 30 and air line 94, and also starts to cut off the glue 70 being supplied through glue lines 32 and 102, and on through the nozzle 24 to the material 130, which is moving relatively by the nozzle 24, as the directional arrows indicate.

In FIG. 11, the exhausting of the compressed air has been completed and the diaphragm 34 has passed beyond its mid motion or mid chamber position. It thereby increases the glue side volume 118, as the force of the compression spring 48 has become effective in so moving diaphragm 34 in the interior chamber 122. Such movement of diaphragm 34 creates a vacuum void 124 into which the glue 70 is drawn, thereby sucking back and scavenging the glue 70 partially back up into the interior of the nozzle 24, so no dripping, not even a drop, will occur, on the material 130 or elsewhere, as indicated by the motion arrows.

The Operation of the Incorporated No Drip Suck Back Unit Previously, the operation of the no drip suck back unit as a separate unit was described in conjunction with the overall apparatus illustrated in FIG. 7, with references also being made to FIG. 8. Also previously, the operation of the no drip suck back unit, either as a separate or incorporated unit, 20 or 56, was described in reference to FIGS. 9, 10 and 11. Now the operation is further set forth in reference to the partial schematic diagram of FIG. 12, indicating flow lines or passageways for air and glue or other liquid, in conjunction with the incorporated no drip suck back embodiment 56, including components, some modified, of the gluing apparatus, as originally set forth in US. Pat. No. 3,547,408.

In the first body portions 58 and 59, the flow of the glue 70 is controlled. As illustrated in FIG. 8, the control diaphragm 88 is at its mid position in the interior chamber 98, being retained there by the force of return compressed spring 104, secured by fastener 105 to diaphragm 88. In this position, its attached valve stem 86, with its flared end 87, closes the glue flow orifice 84. The compressed air supplied through line 94 has been cut off and exhausted to atmosphere through exhaust line 106, upon operation of the electrically controlled solenoid air valve 90, as shown in FIG. 7.

When air is again supplied under pressure, as the solenoid air valve 90 is opened, the control diaphragm 88 will be effective in deflecting against the force of return compression spring 104, thereby opening the glue flow orifice 84. Thereafter, glue coming in from line 32 and body portion 59 will go on to enter the body portion 60, and then depart through its nozzle 24. During this glue or other liquid applying time, material 130 is relatively moving by the nozzle 24, and the glue 70 is not obstructed in its flow. Diaphragm 34 is moved against compression spring 48 to enlarge the air side volume 120 ofinterior volume 122. This occurs, as compressed air comes through the interior branch line 132, from the air side volume 96 of glue flow control unit 28, through orifice 134 located in its first body portion 58 and is subsequently discharged through orifice 52 into the air side volume 120 of the last body portion 62. This body portion 62 is in the incorporated suck back unit 56 which may be arranged in an overall incorporated assembly, as illustrated in FIG. 12.

When the gluing is to be stopped, electrical controls, indicated by symbol 9], are effectively used to operate a solenoid air valve 90, whereby the compressed air is cut off and exhausted to atmosphere at or near by this solenoid air valve 90. As a consequence, all the internal moving parts adjust to the positions illustrated in FIG. 12. In the incorporated no drip suck back unit 56, the compression spring 48 moves the diaphragm 34 effectively back beyond its mid position, in the absence of air under pressure, to enlarge the glue side volume 118 of the interior volume 122 and decrease the air side volume 120, as alternately determined by the movable separating sealed diaphragm 34.

Optionally, a threaded opening 36 is provided in the last body portion 62 to receive a threaded plug or stop 38, which is selectably and variably inserted to contact an abutting fastener 50. It, in turn, secures the compression spring 48 to the diaphragm 34. Such adjustment is used to control the amount of suck back or scavenging which occurs during the stopping and cycling of the glue flow as materials are selectively covered with glue in various specified locations, during the relative movement of the material 130 by the nozzles 24, 26, or by other discharge openings. The success of the suck back, which avoids any dripping, is indicated by the volume 136 cleared in the nozzle 24. This variable adjustment of the degree of return of diaphragm 34 may also be optionally used in the separate no drip suck back unit 20 and other embodiments.

SUMMARY OF ADVANTAGES Absolutely no dripping occurs when the no drip suck back unit in any of its embodiments is properly adjusted in respect to the type of glue or other liquid being applied and the related pressures of both the liquids and air. The no drip suck back units are easily manufactured, installed, and maintained. Because they operate to absolutely avoid unwanted dripping, there are no costs otherwise to be incurred in wasted glues or other liquids being applied in wrong places, often being coupled with the unwanted costs of any required clean up activities. Moreover, the no drip suck back unit by proper adjustment is suitable for aiding in the overall control of most liquids such as thin as well as thick glues and plastics.
