Fluid dispenser

The following statement is a full description of this invention including the best method of performing it known to us:- 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 2

Fluid Dispenser

Field

This disclosure relates, generally, to the dispensing of fluids and, more particularly, to a fluid dispenser for dispensing fluids. While the dispenser is intended particularly for use in dispensing fluent foodstuffs such as sauces, dairy products, or the 5 like, it will be appreciated that the dispenser could be used in other applications as well.

Background

The applicant is aware of a sauce dispenser for dispensing condiments, such as tomato sauce, mustard, mayonnaise, or the like, which has two compartments arranged 10 side by side in a flexible package, the two compartments being covered by an aluminium foil covering. A weakened region is defined centrally in the aluminium foil and, by bending the package about a central axis, the two compartments are brought into floor-to-floor abutment. Continued squeezing of the compartments ruptures the weakened region in the foil and allows the sauce in the compartments to be discharged 15 from the dispenser.

There are numerous problems associated with such dispensers. Firstly, if pressure is inadvertently brought to bear on the compartments, without bending the compartments, this could cause rupturing of the weakened region in the aluminium foil resulting in unintended discharge of the contents of the dispenser. This could damage 20 clothing, soil food packaging and result in premature application of the sauce to the food prior to consumption of the food, spoiling the food. A further problem with this type of dispenser is that, when the foil is ruptured at the region of weakness, it can result in sauce spurting out of the dispenser at an unintended angle. This, once again, could have adverse consequences for a person's 25 clothing, etc. Still further, with sauce dispensers, one often desires to get the sauce into the interior of food being consumed rather than on to the food. This cannot be achieved with present dispensers without the use of other equipment. Yet another problem with such dispensers is that one cannot accurately meter the quantity of sauce or other fluid dispensed. 30 For milk dispensers which are in the form of single compartments covered by an aluminium foil cover, if the aluminium foil cover is removed at a lower pressure than the pressure within the container, this can result in milk spurting out of the container, once again, with undesirable consequences. 1215179 1.doc 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 3

Summary

In a aspect, there is provided a fluid dispenser which includes a cylindrical, tubular body having a first end and an opposed, second end, the body being of a substantially rigid material which is able to be deformed plastically 5 along a longitudinal axis of the body; a dispensing member arranged at the first end of the body; and an actuator arranged at, and closing off, the second end of the body.

In this specification, unless the context clearly indicates otherwise, the term "substantially rigid" means that the body retains its cylindrical, tubular form in the 10 absence of the application of an external force applied to the body. Also, the term "deformed plastically" means that the body is able to be crumpled along the longitudinal axis of the body to reduce the volume of an interior of the body by the application of an external force to the actuator along the longitudinal axis of the body. When the external force is removed, the body remains substantially in its deformed 15 state.

The dispensing member may comprise a nozzle arranged at the first end of the body. The actuator may be a plunger mounted at the second end of the body, the plunger having a projection extending into an interior of the body and the projection having a shape complementary to the nozzle. The nozzle may be substantially funnel 20 shaped and may define an internal concavity at the first end of the body and the projection may have an external concavity complementary to that of the internal concavity of the nozzle. Thus, once the body has been deformed, the projection of the plunger is received within the nozzle to reduce the quantity of fluid remaining in the dispenser. 25 The nozzle may define an outlet opening, the opening, prior to use, being closed off by a closure member.

In one embodiment, the closure member may be formed integrally with the nozzle as a one-piece unit, the closure member being able to be separated from the nozzle along a zone of weakness. The closure member may be shaped to be able to re-30 close the opening of the nozzle after separation of the closure member from the nozzle. The closure member may have a distal plug member which, upon reversing the closure member, is received in the opening of the nozzle. Thus, the dispenser can be used to dispense less than its entire contents and can then be re-closed for later use.

In another embodiment, the closure member may comprise a frangible 35 membrane arranged in the nozzle inwardly of the outlet opening, the closure member further comprising a displaceable component which protrudes from the outlet opening 1215179 1.doc 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 4 and which is displaceable to rupture the membrane to allow ejection of fluid from the outlet opening.

The dispenser may include gripping formations spaced from the actuator, the gripping formations being gripped by a user to enable the actuator to be displaced 5 towards the dispensing member. The gripping formations may comprise a pair of opposed, radially outwardly extending tabs to provide purchase for the user's index and middle fingers while the user presses the actuator with his or her thumb.

The body may be of a transparent plastics material to render the fluid contained in the body visible. 10 In a second aspect, there is provided a fluid dispenser which includes a cylindrical, tubular body having a first end and an opposed, second end, the body being of a substantially rigid material which is able to be deformed along a longitudinal axis of the body; a dispensing member arranged at the first end of the body; and 15 an actuator arranged at, and closing off, the second end of the body, the actuator having a projection extending into an interior of the body and the projection having a shape complementary to the dispensing member.

Detailed Description of Exemplary Embodiments 5 In the drawings, reference numeral 10 generally designates a first embodiment of a fluid dispenser. The fluid dispenser 10 can be used for dispensing any suitable fluids such as fluent foodstuffs. For ease of explanation, the dispenser 10 will be described with reference to its application in the dispensing of reasonably viscous fluids such as tomato sauce, or the like. Those skilled in the art will, however, 10 appreciate that the dispenser 10 could be used in dispensing any suitable fluid.

The dispenser 10 comprises a cylindrical, tubular body 12 having a first end 12.1 and an opposed, second end 12.2. The body 12 is of a substantially rigid material which is able to be deformed plastically along a longitudinal axis of the body 12. More particularly, the body 12 is of a transparent, synthetic plastics material to enable the 15 contents of the body 12 to be visible externally of the body 12. A dispensing member in the form of a nozzle 14 is arranged at the first end 12.1 of the body 12. An actuator in the form of a plunger 16 is arranged at, and closes off, the second end 12.2 of the body 12.

As shown most clearly in Figs. 5 and 6 of the drawings, the nozzle 14 has an 20 annular groove 14.1 formed in a surface facing away from an outlet opening 22 of the nozzle 14. The first end 12.1 of the body 12 is received in the annular groove 14.1 and is secured, for example, by an adhesive, by heat welding, or the like. It will be appreciated that, if desired, the body 12 and the nozzle can be moulded, eg. by injection moulding or blow moulding, as a one-piece unit with the nozzle 14 being thicker and 25 more rigid than the body 12 to allow crumpling of the body 12. A radially outwardly extending flange 18 is defined at the second end 12.2 of the body 12. This flange 18 mates with a corresponding flange 20 of the plunger 16 and the flanges 16 and 20 are secured together by heat welding, by adhesive, by vibration, by crimping under pressure, or the like. The nozzle 14 and the plunger 16 30 are also of a synthetic plastics material so that the entire dispenser 10, after use, can be recycled.

The nozzle 14 is generally funnel shaped and defines an internal concavity 21 (Figs. 5 and 6). The nozzle 14 further defines the outlet opening 22 which is closed off by a closure member 24. 35 The plunger 16 is a moulding having an external concavity 26 which complements the internal concavity 21 of the nozzle 14. This also results in the 1215179 1.doc 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 6 plunger 16 having a dished external surface 28 into which a user can insert his or her thumb, and, more particularly, the first joint of the thumb, to dispense the fluid contained within the dispenser 10, as will be described in greater detail below.

The closure member 24 is moulded integrally with the nozzle 14 as a one-piece 5 unit. The closure member 24 is demarcated from the remainder of the nozzle 14 via a zone of weakness 30. The zone of weakness 30 is a circumferential region of reduced thickness.

When it is desired to dispense fluid from the interior of the body 12 of the dispenser 10, the closure member 24 is snapped off at the zone of weakness 30 to 10 expose the outlet opening 22. A plug member 32 is arranged on the closure member 24. As illustrated in Fig 6 of the drawings, once the closure member 24 has been removed from the nozzle 14 at the zone of weakness 30, the closure member 24 can be reversed and the plug member 32 inserted into the outlet opening 22 to plug the nozzle 14. Thus, if not all the fluid 15 has been dispensed from the dispenser 10 and it is desired to keep the remainder of the fluid for later use, this can be accommodated by plugging the outlet opening 22 of the nozzle with the plug member 32 of the closure member 24 as illustrated in Fig. 6 of the drawings.

The dispenser 10 further has gripping formations in the form of a pair of 20 opposed, radially outwardly extending tabs 34. These tabs 34 are formed on the nozzle 14 and are arranged at the end 12.1 of the body 12, in use. The tabs 34 provide purchase for a user's index finger and middle finger.

In the embodiment of the fluid dispenser 10 illustrated in Figs. 8 and 9, like reference numerals refer to like parts unless otherwise specified. 25 In this embodiment, the closure member 24 is a stopper 38 moulded integrally with the nozzle 14 as a one-piece unit. The stopper 38 has a frangible membrane 40 arranged across the nozzle 14 inwardly of the outlet opening 22 to seal the outlet opening 22 prior to use. The stopper 38 further includes a displaceable component 42 which bears against the membrane 40 and protrudes out of the opening 22 prior to use. 30 The displaceable component 42 has an annular member 44 connected to the membrane 40 via flights 46 arranged cruciform-fashion to define passages 48 through which fluid can pass after the displaceable component 42 has been displaced into the opening 22 to rupture the membrane 40.

The flights 46 have radially outwardly extending tabs 50 which bear against the 35 rim of the opening 22 prior to displacement of the stopper 38 to inhibit accidental displacement of the stopper 38 into the nozzle 14. 1215179_1.doc 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 7

As shown in Figs. 9a-9c, prior to use, the stopper 38 protrudes from the opening 22 and the tabs 50 bear against the rim of the opening 22. This ensures that the stopper 38 is not accidentally displaced by a small application of force. The membrane 40 is intact. To dispense fluid from the dispenser, a force is applied to the annular member 5 44 of the displaceable component 42 in the direction of arrow 52 to displace the displaceable component 42 into the opening 22 to rupture the membrane 40. The application of the force forces the tabs 50 into the opening 22 and the displaceable component 42 is urged into the nozzle 14 until the annular member 44 abuts the rim of the opening 22. Fluid can then be urged through the passages 48 out of holes 54 10 defined by the flights 46 and the annular member 42 of the displaceable component 42. Friction between the tabs 50 and an interior surface of the nozzle 14 serves to retain the displaceable component 42 in its displaced position as shown in Fig. 9c of the drawings.

In use, when it is desired to dispense a fluid, such as tomato sauce, from the 15 dispenser 10, the closure member 24 is either removed by snapping it off at the zone of weakness 30 to expose the outlet opening 22 of the nozzle 14 or the displaceable component 42 of the closure member 24 is displaced to rupture the membrane 40, as the case may be. The user places his or her index finger and middle finger on the tabs 34 of the nozzle 14 and the first joint of the thumb is received in the dished region 28 of 20 the plunger 16. Pressure is exerted on the plunger 16 in the direction of arrow 36 (Fig. 5). This causes the body member 12 to deform by crumpling along the longitudinal axis of the body 12 as the plunger 16 is urged in the direction of the arrow 36 towards the nozzle 14.

When the desired amount of tomato sauce has been dispensed, the pressure on 25 the plunger 16 is removed by removal of the user's thumb. Surface tension is sufficient to hold the remaining sauce within the dispenser 10. In the case of the first embodiment, the outlet opening 22 of the nozzle 14 is plugged by reversing the closure member 24 and inserting the plug member 32 into the outlet opening 22 of the nozzle 14. 30 If all the sauce has been dispensed, the concavity 26 of the plunger 16 is received in close proximity to the concavity 21 of the nozzle 14 so that wastage of sauce by retention of sauce in the body 12 is minimised.

It is also to be noted that the nozzle 14 is elongate and tapered so that the nozzle 14 can be inserted into the interior of foodstuffs being, or about to be, consumed such 35 as, for example, a meat pie, a pastie, a sausage roll, a hot dog, or the like. This allows 1215179 1.doc 2010206557 04 Aug 2010 8 the tomato sauce to be dispensed into the interior of the meat pie rather than on to the meat pie as is the case with prior art dispensers of which the Applicant is aware.

Hence, it is an advantage of the described embodiments that a dispenser 10 is provided which can be used for dispensing sauce or other condiments into the interior 5 of foodstuffs to be consumed. In addition, due to the construction of the body member 12, an accurate amount of food stuffs can be dispensed. In embodiments, the provision of the closure member 24 which is reversible allows the dispenser 10 to be closed for re-use at a later stage with the likelihood of leakage of sauce from the dispenser 10 being minimised. In the case of the second embodiment, it is an advantage that the 10 dispenser can be opened in a one-handed operation. Thus, a user can exert pressure on the stopper 38 using the index finger while holding the body member 12 in the hand. This is of benefit when the person's other hand is, for example, holding the item of foodstuff on to which the sauce is to be dispensed. A further major advantage of the described embodiments is that the entire 15 dispenser 10 is made of a synthetic plastics material which renders the dispenser 10 suitable for recycling after residue of fluids contained in the dispenser 10 have been rinsed out of the used dispenser 10.

It will be appreciated by persons skilled in the art that numerous variations and/or modifications may be made to the described embodiments without departing 20 from the scope of the disclosure as broadly described. The present embodiments are, therefore, to be considered in all respects as illustrative and not restrictive. 1215179 1.doc
