[List of Patents for class 217 subclass 104]    104Flexible diaphragm:
 This subclass is indented under subclass 100.  Subject matter in which the valve consists, essentially, of a flexible diaphragm of rubber or other material placed over an opening which communicates with the interior of the barrel. When the pressure within falls below atmospheric pressure, the diaphragm is raised or distended, exposing the opening, through which air is admitted into the barrel, thus restoring the equilibrium and permitting the liquid contents to be freely drawn.

 This subclass is indented under subclass 5.  Boxes made from wall structure comprising mutually conforming inner and outer wall elements entirely spaced from one another to inhibit transfer of a temperature condition there past into the contents space.
(1) Note. The temperature barrier space may be void or may be packed with insulation material or panels. Thus, the requirement for this subclass is met by structure consisting of outer wall elements, an intervening lining, and an innermost wall or lining construction.
(2) Note. The inner wall structure may be removable as a unit, in which case it is distinguishable from mere removable receptacle structure by the requirement that the removal involves an act of disconnecting some element; as opposed to mere lifting from the box, involving nothing more than the possible displacement of a closure.
