Abstract

This device permits liquids to be rapidly discharged from a container. The device comprises interior tube 20 mounted in surrounding cylinder 22. Tube 20 is long enough to reach the bottom of container 24. The outer end of tube 20 is threaded to permit the coupling to a hose or like. Cylinder 22 is also threaded to engage a receptacle included in the top surface of container 24. Cylinder 22 also includes fitting 23 for connection to a gas or other pressure source. Container 24 includes flame arrestor or relief member 26. When a gas, e.g., air, nitrogen or the like, is supplied to fitting 23, the liquid is pushed up tube 20 and the container 24 is emptied through the hose. The device eliminates the need for a pumping source, and its accompanying safety hazards, in emptying it.
