The present invention relates to a metering device for the application of a flavoring or a cleaning and / or disinfecting agent on the mouth edge of a cover article such as in particular a teapot, a cup, a soup plate or a piece of cutlery.
Schankgefäße such as in particular those for beer, wine or cocktails and the like are known in many forms. It is less well known that the vessel shape accompanies the taste of the contents on the human tongue. This is simply because the shape of the vessel significantly determines how a human must shape his mouth and tongue in order to drink from it. Depending on the shape of the vessel, the content is passed over different areas of the tongue, thus determining human perception. In the case of teapots, for example, which tapers upwards, humans usually have to make a "sharp mouth" in order to be able to drink from it. This allows the content to run across the different taste regions of the human tongue. This is well known to be divided into different regions: so be front rather sweet, laterally acidic and further perceived the bitter substances.
To combine different flavors is common to mix two or more drinks together as a "cocktail". The typical character of a beverage in pure culture is lost but usually as well as non-dominant flavor or flavor. The mix of good, interesting-tasting "cocktails" is therefore often referred to as a separate "science".
In order to cross a beverage in pure culture with a different flavor is also known to submerge the mouth edge strongly cooled teapots unfilled in a flavor carrier, which temporarily adheres or freezes due to the temperature difference at the mouth edge and allows a successive interaction of two taste experiences in pure culture. In practice, this method is usually designed for only one flavor or taste direction and also requires appropriate preparations, which are also rarely available, especially in the private sector.
Proceeding from this, the present invention has the first object to provide a metering device for the application of a flavoring on the mouth edge of a cover article such as in particular a teapot, which is particularly suitable as a mobile pen.
Dirty water and poor hygiene are the main cause of a large proportion of all infectious diseases. However, this problem is not limited to developing or emerging countries only. Even in western latitudes could be observed for example in the mobile festival and beer tent gastronomy or in well-frequented restaurants due to the regularly limited available number of available tableware an increased flow of particular for commercial serving of drinks for a fee certain vessels such as drinking glasses, the excludes in many cases, each such dispensing containers to undergo a cleaning and disinfection in a dishwasher or the like.
Impurities e.g. in gastronomy on teapot containers consist mainly of residues of drinks and signs of wear (especially saliva, blood spatter, lipstick, etc. ...), which may have come on or in the teapot during use. Also to a non-deterministic re-designation of Schankgefäßen example. As an ashtray or to deposit waste is to think. Therefore, the careful cleaning and disinfection of teapots in the catering not only under aesthetic, but also under hygienic conditions of great importance.
The importance of dealing with hygiene is illustrated by recent case studies of the rapid spread of the bacterium enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) in the population. The transmission of the pathogens takes place in a variety of ways mainly by direct or indirect oral intake, with less than 100 bacteria can already meet an infection.
As with all other items to be cleaned, dispensers must also be put in a hygienically perfect condition by cleaning, disinfecting, rinsing and drying.
By cleaning is meant the complete removal of impurities on the items to be washed. The necessary cleaning agents consist of one or a mixture of several basic chemicals, which in certain concentrations allow proper cleaning without causing damage to the health of personnel or materials.
Disinfection means the killing of harmful pathogens, whereby their load is reduced to such an extent that it meets the requirements of hygiene. For disinfectants, the same requirements apply as for cleaning agents.
Pathogens - also known as pathogens in medicine - are substances or organisms that cause harmful processes in other organisms. Pathogens can be algae, bacteria, parasites, fungi, prions, protists, viruses or viroids. They are assigned the property of pathogenicity in medicine. In the narrower sense, pathogenicity refers to the ability of a pathogen to damage a particular host through its resource acquisition.
The transmission of pathogens (pathogens) can occur on different routes of infection, which depend on the type of pathogen and its preferred site of infection. The transmission medium influences the contagiousness of a disease and thus the speed of its dissemination.
Under the infection path or short infection, colloquially also "infection", one understands the active or passive penetration, remain and subsequent propagation of pathogenic organisms (such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi and parasites) or pathogenic molecules (such as viruses, viroids, transposons and Prions) in an organism, mostly more specific from pathogens to a host. Diseases caused by pathogens are called infectious diseases.
Cleaned and disinfected surfaces or volumes of items to be washed must be completely wetted with cold water when rinsing. Only in this way is it possible to remove dead pathogens and chemical residues.
The final step in drying is that only dry items prevent the growth of pathogens between usage intervals.

is a drinking vessel cleaner known. From the GB 666 031 A
For example, improvements in or relating to means for washing of drinking utensils and the like are known. In contrast, the disclosed WO 97/19615 A1

a cleaning device for vessels such as drinking glasses and / or cups of the catering industry known; and finally also reveals the DE 37 28 290 A1
a device for cleaning of drinking glasses, especially in restaurants.
To clean Schankgefäßen is common to install a cleaning device in a sink, with the aid of the dispensing containers can be mechanically cleaned. In the simplest case, a brush with a suction cup is attached to the bottom of the sink for this purpose. The cleaning of the inner surface of the dispensing vessel then takes place in that the bartender preferably moves the dispensing vessel back and forth several times over the brushes and thus mechanically ensures that any adhering dirt is removed. In this case, it is used that in the case of such dispensing vessels, as a rule, only liquid residues are to be removed, that is to say that no mechanically more strongly adhering soils have to be removed by using external forces. There are also brushes for the outer sides of the teapots, which clean the outer sides during the up and down movement of the teapots. Instead of the stationary brushes and brushes with drives can be used, which achieve an improved cleaning of the teapot vessels even with insufficient cleaning movement by the Schankkellner. However, such cleaning is often not, as prescribed, under running water. Rather, one uses a more or less stationary sink filling, which sooner or later enriched with beverage residues. Since the rinse water is usually tempered, it forms an ideal breeding ground for pathogens.
To reduce the risk of it is known to replace the brushes with flushing nozzles or direct the water or other rinsing liquid under pressure against the inner and outer surfaces of the teapots, whereby not only a mechanical cleaning is achieved, but at the same time the beverage residues with the Rinsing fluid are conveyed away. This cleaning is often still under water, d. H. the sink is at least partially filled with water or rinsing liquid, so that the problem of pathogen loading does not disappear to the desired extent here.
Since the teapots after rinsing are usually not dried with a towel, but just drain before the next filling, there is a risk that accumulate in particular at the edge of the mouth of the teapots next aesthetically unsightly impurities such as dirty water stains and corresponding pathogen loadings or in the Forming there excess moisture again, which may be potentially infectious for the consumer if he takes these while drinking as soon as he nestles the mouth edge of the teapot to his lips.
The same applies in a similar way for coffee or tea rooms in which Coffee cups or tea glasses must be repeated and cleaned as quickly as possible. It is therefore to be understood that the problems described above on the basis of teapot vessels can also be regularly adjusted to the mouth edges of other tableware items such as, in particular, cups, soup plates or cutlery items such as knives, forks or spoons.
Proceeding from this, the present invention as a second object is to provide a metering device for the application of a cleaning and / or disinfectant on the mouth edge of a cover article such as in particular a teapot, a cup, a soup plate or a piece of cutlery, which in particular as a mobile pen suitable.
The aforementioned objects are achieved by a metering device having the features of patent claim 1.

By way of example, reference should be made to the Applicant's so-called "Glasello" liquid, a biocidal product registered under BfR article number N-59904. As an example of an antiseptic is exemplary referenced octenisept ® German Schülke & Mayr GmbH.
3 such as 10a to 10d Finally, show how a dosing device 10 according to the invention as a mobile pen, in particular for on-demand aromatization or for on-demand cleaning and / or disinfection of the mouth edge 2 a cover article 1 such as in particular a teapot 1a (please refer 3 respectively. 10a ), a cup 1b (not shown), a soup plate 1c (not shown) or a piece of cutlery 1d (please refer 10b ) or even a beverage can 1e (please refer 10c ) or beverage bottle 1f (please refer 10d ) and in its function is very easy to use:
Thus distributed (as example in the first embodiment according to 2 shown) by pressing on the arranged on a front side push button 31 the cleaning and / or disinfecting liquid 99 from the, for example made of aluminum or plastic, container 20 along the thighs 61 of the distributor attachment 60 ,
Alternatively (as in the second exemplary embodiment according to FIG 4 ff. shown) by pressing on a front or longitudinal side of the operating device 30 arranged with the container 20 interacting, compressed bellows 33 the aromatizing or the cleaning and / or disinfecting liquid 99 over the syringe insert 52 with its, preferably capillary-acting, outlet opening 53 from the, for example, as a blow body made of plastic, container 20 along the 61a or the thigh 61 respectively. 61a and 61b of the distributor attachment 60 to distribute.
Finally, (as in the third exemplary embodiment according to FIG 7 ff. and represented by a total or partial in a recording room 34 an operating device 30 recorded container 20 cooperating operating device 30 shown) flavoring or cleaning and / or disinfecting liquid acting 99 by, preferably only two manual, shaking movements through the, preferably capillary acting formed, outlet opening 53 from the, for example, as a blow body made of plastic, container 20 press and move along the 61a or the thigh 61 respectively. 61a and 61b of the distributor attachment 60 to distribute. A capillary-acting outlet opening 53 In this case, it is advantageously dimensioned in the case of a device which is largely in a position of rest 10 no liquid 99 on the opening 53 exit. At the same time is the capillary-acting outlet opening 53 continue to be sized so that when embracing the operating device 30 and then preferably only two shaking the device 10 per application a consistent dosage of, for example 2 Drops of liquid 99 the container 20 leave and - as described below - in the distribution tower 60 to distribute. The container 20 is advantageously sized so that no change in the dosing behavior is noticeable, even if the Liquide 99 through the applications of the device 10 gradually empties and the container 20 filled with air, but advantageous only in a not liquid 99 unfavorable mix ratio. In this regard, it has been recognized that large containers 20 as in 2 and 4 shown in a "shaking operation" as shown 7 ff. described, due to the increasing proportion of air in the container over time 20 more and more uncontrolled amounts of liquid 99 let go what is through the in 2 and 4 described operating devices 30 Although it can be compensated, but nevertheless represent an additional investment, what at the in 7 ff described embodiment, namely a sufficiently small-sized container 20 , is advantageously avoided. In the light of the above, in particular a container 20 proven, which is dimensioned such that this by an operating device 30 with one the container 20 completely or partially comprehensive recording room 34 can be included, wherein preferably the receiving space 34 opposite the container 20 characterized by a twice as large volume (esp. With substantially complete absorption) and / or a twice as large cross-section (esp. With partial recording). Such, the container 20 surrounding control device 30 , protects this advantageous 20 against unintended pressurization and the associated unintentional leakage of liquid 99 , The the container 20 preferably completely or possibly partially receiving control device 30 also serves the ergonomic tangibility of the device 10 and thus the easy-to-use overall handling of the shaking motions and subsequent applications of aromatization or cleaning and / or disinfecting a mouth rim 2 a cover article 1 , The above dimensions of the outlet 53 and / or operating device 30 and containers 20 advantageously avoid all types of overdoses (increased amounts of liquid 99 in open-celled material 62 ) Including those due to air bubbles, as they were observed especially in container sizes, which those in 2 and 4 same described. Overdoses would be the liquid 99 from the edge of the mouth, so to speak 2 starting at the teapot 1a Run down what the customer is not very excited, as he would then again "old-fashioned" cleaning work to do, he wants a contact of his hands with overdosed liquid 99 avoid.
The "shaking" handling of a dosing device 10 for the application of a liquid flavoring or liquid cleaning and / or disinfecting agent on the edge of the mouth 2 a cover article 1 in particular a teapot 1a is also illustrated by the process described below:
- - As far as the device 10 preferably by a closure cap 25 is secured, this is 25 first remove, in particular unscrew by turning.
- - Then the device 10 , preferably only two times, in particular from the wrist to shake with preferably a distributor attachment 60 down holding orientation.
- - The Liquid 99 in the container 20 now moves well dosed through the outlet 53 in the distribution tower 60 and the preferred there, in particular open-pore, material 62 and soak this.
- - The device 10 over her distribution tower 60 now at the edge of the mouth 2 put on (short leg 61b inside, long thigh 61a on the outer edge of the glass 1a ).
- - The device 10 now 360 times around the entire edge of the mouth 2 of the teapot 1a rotate.
- - The distributor attachment 60 the device 10 is designed to take the lead around the edge of the mouth 2 of the teapot 1a independently takes over. The teapot 1a itself remains advantageous, and is held as a precaution, if necessary with the other hand.
Last, so the distribution of liquid 99 on both thighs 61 respectively. 61a and 61b is exemplary in both the first and in the second embodiment according to 2 respectively. 4 and 5 shown. The former, ie the distribution of liquid 99 on the open-cell material of only one leg 61a is in the third embodiment according to 7 and 8th shown. It can be seen as the outlet opening 53 and the open-cell (sponge) material are arranged to each other such that after removal of the closure cap 25 and release of the outlet opening 53 through the lock pin 26 Liquid 99 directly and exclusively into the open-cell (sponge) material of the longer thigh 61a can be metered while the shorter leg 62a does not wear any sponge material or the like, as in the third embodiment this only a positioning and / or guiding function for the longer leg 61a due.
In all three training examples described above limit the respective legs 61 respectively. 61a and 61b doing a free space 71 with an insertion opening 71 for the introduction of the section 5 an intended for aromatization or for cleaning and / or disinfection mouth rim 2 a cover article 1 ,
The introduction can by simple essay of the distributor attachment 60 the device 10 on the edge of the mouth 2 of the cover article 1 especially if this - as in 3 respectively. 10a shown - a teapot 1a is. Once put on the device 10 sliding around the edge of the mouth 2 led and so section by section 5 flavored or purified and / or disinfected. The distribution of aromatization or cleaning and / or support functions can (as in exemplary in the first embodiment according to 2 shown) evenly or (as exemplified in the second and third embodiments according to 4 ff. 7 ff.) with different measurements on the thighs 61a and 61b be distributed. The slide itself around the edge of the mouth 2 is facilitated when the manifold attachment 60 360 ° endlessly rotatable directly on the cylindrical housing of the container 20 is stored. In particular, such an aromatization or a cleaning and / or disinfection is allowed, in which the dispensing vessel 1a yourself can remain unmoved. Even with attached device is at any time if necessary by simply pressing the push button 31 or pressure bellows 33 another output of one or more droplets or puffs of the liquid 99 for aromatization or for cleaning and / or disinfection.
The open space 70 is preferably for different thickness Mundränder 2 designed. In particular, this can 70 a rounded reason 72 , conical walls and / or flexibly mounted and / or different lengths of leg 61 . 61a and or 61b exhibit. For a lining of the internal walls 62 the thigh 61 With an open-cell material such as foam, for example, structured surfaces and / or may be the whole or partial coating with a natural or artificial leather or comparable skin and / or fiber material 66 also increase the cleaning effect.
The present invention is particularly suitable as a mobile pen. The pen is in his conception of anyone, everywhere and only dependent on its filling but otherwise independent of possible other aromatization or cleaning methods immediately and efficiently used without the other aids such as cooling on the one hand or cleaning equipment, solutions or liquids (Liquid), etc. on the other needed. Rather, they are either expendable or all integral to the present invention.
In her first, the aromatization of a mouth rim 2 pursuing embodiment finally comes a device according to the invention 10 just a pure aroma transfer to the edge of the mouth 2 esp. a teapot 2a without cleaning or disinfection function too. The added value or idea and concept is to offer a completely new taste experience to each person through two different flavor carriers, which a user immediately after the first sip from a teapot 1a reached:
- - The first taste experience comes to the validity and perception by the previously applied "aroma liquid" 99 on the edge of the mouth 2 , The second taste experience is the drink in the teapot 1a itself, which follows afterwards and thereby causes a mixing of the taste experience only in the oral cavity.
- - There are hardly any limits to combinations, considering that it is solely from the aroma liquid 99 which is available in various variants such as lime, orange, strawberry, apple, pepper, anise, etc. as an aroma carrier.
- - This results in innumerable possibilities of personal taste, even those that you did not know or could not try together until today. So far, there is only the possibility to mix two or more drinks together as a "cocktail".
- - Short-term so-called "taste shots" can now be mixed individually and allow completely new creative ideas for the perception of the taste buds.
- - The possibilities are available in principle for all anti-alcoholic, as well as alcoholic flavors.
