Description

  • The invention relates to a liquid applicator with a housing intended for the liquid, to the housing opening of which a resilient valve device is provided, and to a housing front part attached to the housing opening, from which an applicator for the liquid projects, for the opening actuation of the valve device is provided.
  • Such a job device is for example from the DE 20 2006 015 711 U1 known. In this known applicator, the applicator consists of a non-capillary, dense, dimensionally stable material with a protruding from the housing front part application section and a materialeinstückig formed with this, axially aligned pin portion whose inner end face abuts against the valve means. As a result of unavoidable dimensional tolerances of extending through the housing front part through the pin portion of the applicator and / or the front part of the housing in the extreme case, an unwanted falling out of the applicator from the front housing part is not excluded.
  • From the DE 1 823 083 U1 an applicator of the aforementioned type is known in which the applicator consists of a liquid capillary promotional material.
  • An applicator with an applicator of the liquid capillary promoting material is for example also from the DE 33 03 341 A1 known.
  • An applicator of the type mentioned, in which the applicator has two different areas, each extending from the inside end face of the applicator to the applicator end, wherein the one area which, kapillar promotional and the second area dimensionally stable hard and provided for actuating the valve device is, is out of DE 20 2004 020 008 U1 known.
  • All these known applicators have in common that the applicator is simply associated with its inside front end of the valve device, d. H. simply rests against the valve device, so that with appropriate dimensional tolerances of the applicator and / or the front part of the housing falling out of the front housing part can not be reliably avoided, which is a production Committee.
  • From the DE 12 75 926 A an applicator for a liquid with a housing provided for the liquid is known, wherein at the housing opening a resilient valve device is provided. The valve device forms in this known applicator directly and directly a so-called Aufstreichersatz, consisting of a sleeve having a press flange. Over the press flange protrudes a shell, whose upper outer edge is pulled inwards. The lower inner edge of the sleeve is retracted and forms a support for a base ring of a valve central part. From the base ring are helical spring bars away, which connect a valve head with the base ring. At the same time, the valve head itself forms an applicator for the liquid.
  • The DE 10 2008 053 917 A1 discloses an applicator for a liquid, with a housing provided for the liquid, at the housing opening a resilient valve device is provided. The valve device has a first valve part device for an associated first valve opening and a second valve part device, wherein the valve device can be opened by pressing on the wall of the housing.
  • The DE 60 2004 010 142 T2 discloses a liquid applicator having a housing provided for the liquid which is compressible to actuate, ie open, the resilient valve means provided on the housing opening. This known applicator has an applicator projecting from a mounted on the housing opening housing front part. The applicator is formed at its inside end portion with a circumferential collar, the inside end face is simply planar. The inner-side end portion of the applicator is associated with a limiting and control element which has a central flange and two ring sections facing away from each other axially.
  • The invention has for its object to provide an applicator of the type mentioned above, wherein falling out of the applicator from the front housing part - even with appropriate dimensional tolerances - is reliably prevented.
  • This object is achieved by the features of claim 1, d. H. solved in that the valve device is associated with a holding device, by means of which the applicator is arranged in the applicator captive, wherein the applicator at its inner end portion, spaced from the inside end face by an abutment portion, with an undercut and the holding device with a spring in the undercut engaging support portion is formed, wherein the undercut of the applicator has an axial dimension which is greater than the axial dimension of the holding portion of the holding device.
  • In this case, the holding device may be provided on the valve device. Ie. the holding device can be formed integrally with the valve device or - by suitable training z. B. with a clamping ring - be clamped between the valve device and the front housing part.
  • With the help of the valve device associated holding device there is the advantage that even with dimensional tolerances of the applicator and / or the housing front part of the applicator is reliably held captive in the applicator but captive to open the resilient valve means by means of the applicator.
  • The undercut on the inside end portion of the applicator may be formed as a groove surrounding the applicator. Likewise, it is possible, for example, instead of a gutter webs o. The like. Provide.
  • The undercut of the applicator according to the invention has an axial dimension which is greater than the axial dimension of the holding region of the holding device. As a result of this axial dimensional difference between the undercut and the holding region, the applicator can be moved without force along this dimensional difference, for example when replacing a used or damaged applicator by an unused new applicator, so that detachment of a used or damaged applicator from the applicator, ie. H. the extraction of the applicator from the front housing part in case of need is relatively energy-saving possible. According to saving force, it is also possible to use a new applicator through the front housing part in the applicator and attach them captive with the help of the provided on the valve means holding device in the applicator.
  • In order to make the insertion of an applicator in the applicator or the removal of a used or damaged applicator out of the applicator comfortable out, it is useful if the abutment portion of the applicator with a tapered towards the inside end face of the applicator first chamfer surface and with a for undercut tapering second chamfer surface is formed. These chamfer surfaces are preferably provided on the applicator-like the undercut-circumferentially.
  • The first chamfer surface preferably has a chamfer angle which is smaller than the chamfer angle of the second chamfer surface, so that the insertion of an applicator into the applicator assisted by the end-side chamfer surface is optimally possible, and by forming the second chamfer surface with a smaller one Chamfer angle the captive retention of the applicator in the applicator is not affected.
  • In the applicator device according to the invention, the holding device preferably has a retaining collar, wherein the holding region of the retaining device has an inwardly directed retaining collar. The retaining collar is suitably made of a ductile material to resiliently hold the applicator.
  • The applicator of the applicator device according to the invention may consist of a liquid capillary promoting material, such as a Faserdocht o. The like. Likewise, it is possible that the applicator consists of a non-capillary, dense, dimensionally stable material. The dense, dimensionally stable applicator is expediently designed with at least one longitudinal capillary slot in order to transport the liquid to the applicator section projecting from the front part of the housing. The at least one longitudinal capillary slot may be formed on the outer surface of the applicator or in its interior.
  • Further details, features and advantages will become apparent from the following description in conjunction with the accompanying drawings.
  • Show it:
  • 1 partially cut open a portion of a training of the applicator, and
  • 2 on a larger scale, an embodiment of the applicator of the applicator according to 1 in combination with an associated, truncated drawn holding device.
  • 1 shows partially cut sections of an education of the applicator 10 , The applicator 10 has a cut-drawn housing 12 on, in which a liquid 14 located. At the liquid 14 it is, for example, a pigmented writing, painting or drawing fluid to a varnish for cosmetic applications o. The like.
  • At the housing opening 16 of the housing 12 is a resilient valve device 18 intended. The valve device 18 is at the housing opening 16 by means of a housing front part 20 established. For this purpose, the housing 12 , the housing opening 16 assigned, with a male threaded portion 22 and the front housing part 20 with an associated female threaded portion 24 educated.
  • The housing front part 20 is with a central through hole 26 trained by that an applicator 28 of the applicator 10 extends through. The applicator 28 has such a length that it with a job section 30 from the front of the housing 20 protrudes. The applicator 28 is for actuation, ie for opening the resilient valve means provided. If a pressure is exerted on the applicator, which is directed into the applicator device, then the valve device 18 open. In the pressureless state of the applicator 28 is the valve device 18 tightly closed.
  • To prevent accidental leakage of liquid 14 located in front of the valve device 18 is located from the job tool 10 To prevent it out, a liquid leakage protection can be provided 32 be provided. The liquid leakage protection 32 can with the front housing part 20 and / or with the valve device materialeinstückig z. B. with capillary slots o. The like. Be formed. Another possibility is that the liquid leakage protection 32 is formed by an open-pored sponge.
  • The valve device 18 is a holding device 34 assigned, by means of which the applicator 28 in the order device 10 is arranged captive. In this case, the holding device 34 with the valve device 18 material integral or formed between the valve device and the front housing part 20 , associated with the valve device, be clamped.
  • How out 2 clearly seen is the applicator 28 at its inside end portion 36 with an undercut 38 formed, from the inside front end 40 of the applicator 28 through an abutment section 42 is spaced. The abutment section 42 of the applicator 28 is with a first chamfer surface 44 and with a second chamfer surface 46 formed around the abutment section 42 circulate. The first chamfer surface 44 tapers to the inside front end 40 out. The second chamfer surface 46 tapers to the undercut 38 out. The first chamfer surface 44 has a chamfer angle "a1" which is smaller than the chamfer angle "a2" of the second chamfer surface 46 ,
  • The holding device 34 for the applicator 28 is from a retaining collar 48 formed from a ductile material, which in the illustrated training of the applicator 10 from the valve device 18 (please refer 1 ) stands aside. The retaining collar 48 is inside with a retaining collar 50 formed, which has a holding area 52 the holding device 34 forms.
