Description

  • La présente invention est du domaine du conditionnement, en particulier des conditionnemen's des produits liquides devant être utilisés en quantité dosée. Elle vise plus précisément un récipient de conception originale permettant de réaliser un tel conditionnement.The present invention is in the field of packaging, in particular packaging of liquid products to be used in metered quantities. It more specifically relates to a container of original design allowing such packaging to be carried out.
  • Jusqu'à présent, les produits liquides devant être distribués en quantité dosée étaient conditionnés, soit à l'intérieur d'emballages renfermant également un doseur, soit avec un doseur fixé audit récipient par une languette présentant une ligne de moindre résistance permettant d'arracher ledit doseur au moment de l'utilisation. L'inconvénient majeur de tels conditionnements résidait dans le fait que le dispositif doseur, une fois l'emballage ouvert ou après son arrachage du récipient, risquait d'être facilement perdu, le dosage du produit restant ne pouvant alors s'effectuer que de façon approximative. Par ailleurs, ces doseurs traditionnels devaient être nettoyés après chaque utilisation.Until now, the liquid products to be dispensed in metered quantities have been packaged, either inside packages also containing a metering device, or with a metering device attached to said container by a tab having a line of least resistance making it possible to tear off said dispenser at the time of use. The major drawback of such packaging lay in the fact that the metering device, once the packaging was opened or after it had been torn from the container, risked being easily lost, the dosage of the remaining product then being able to be carried out only so approximate. In addition, these traditional dispensers had to be cleaned after each use.
  • Le brevet français 2 563 250 déposé le 18 avril 1984 et publié le 25 octobre 1985 se rapporte à un procédé perfectionné de lavage et de nettoyage du linge dans une machine à laver du commerce, dans lequel on utilise un agent de détergence à l'état liquide. Selon ce procédé, cet agent est libéré progressivement dans le bain de lavage à partir d'un dispositif placé dans le tambour de la machine avec le linge à laver.French patent 2,563,250 filed April 18, 1984 and published October 25, 1985 relates to an improved method of washing and cleaning laundry in a commercial washing machine, in which a detergency agent is used in the state liquid. According to this method, this agent is gradually released into the washing bath from a device placed in the drum of the machine with the laundry to be washed.
  • Le brevet français 2 570 720 déposé le 24 août 1984 et publié le 28 mars 1986 concerne un dispositif de lavage du linge en machine avec un détergent liquide, pouvant être utilisé par exemple dans le procédé du brevet français précité. Ce dispositif, qui présente une forme caractéristique essentiellement sphérique comporte au moins un orifice de remplissage et des évents pour la libération progressive du liquide au sein du linge en cours de lavage.French patent 2,570,720 filed August 24, 1984 and published March 28, 1986 relates to a machine washing machine with a liquid detergent, which can be used for example in the process of the aforementioned French patent. This device, which has a characteristic essentially spherical shape, comprises at least one filling orifice and vents for the gradual release of the liquid within the laundry during washing.
  • Un objet de l'invention est de permettre la réalisation du procédé décrit dans le brevet 2 563 250, en incorporant, par exemple, le dispositif diffuseur décrit dans le brevet 2 570 720, en tant que doseur, au dispositif obturateur du récipient de conditionnement de l'invention.An object of the invention is to enable the process described in patent 2,563,250 to be carried out, by incorporating, for example, the diffuser device described in patent 2,570,720, as a metering device, into the closure device of the packaging container. of the invention.
  • Un autre objet de l'invention est de fournir un récipient de conditionnement qui obvie à l'inconvénient précité de perte éventuelle du dispositif doseur de liquide, tout en restant de conception simple et originale, et qui ne nécessite pas de nettoyage après chaque utilisation, étant donné qu'il est introduit dans la machine d'où il ressort parfaitement propre et apte à être réutilisé.Another object of the invention is to provide a packaging container which obviates the aforementioned drawback of possible loss of the liquid metering device, while remaining simple and original in design, and which does not require cleaning after each use, since it is introduced into the machine from which it emerges perfectly clean and suitable for re-use.
  • Encore un autre objet de la présente invention est de fournir un récipient de conditionnement pour liquides, dans lequel le dispositif doseur est associé de façon à pouvoir être utilisé et réincorporé au récipient sans risque d'être perdu.Yet another object of the present invention is to provide a packaging container for liquids, in which the metering device is associated so that it can be used and re-incorporated into the container without risk of being lost.
  • Encore un autre objet de l'invention est de fournir un récipient de conditionnement pour liquides, associé à un dispositif doseur présentant également une structure de diffusion, pour être utilisé dans une machine à laver.Yet another object of the invention is to provide a packaging container for liquids, associated with a metering device also having a diffusion structure, for use in a washing machine.
  • La présente invention a donc pour objet un récipient de conditionnement pour détergents liquides, selon la revendication 1.The present invention therefore relates to a packaging container for liquid detergents, according to claim 1.
  • Ce doseur comporte avantageusement une structure de diffusion de liquide choisie par exemple parmi celles décrites dans les brevets français 2 563 250 et 2 570 720 précites.This dispenser advantageously comprises a liquid diffusion structure chosen for example from those described in the French patents 2,563,250 and 2,570,720 mentioned above.
  • Selon une forme de réalisation de l'invention, le doseur est fixé au dispositif d'obturation, et comporte à cet effet, adjacente à sa zone de diffusion, une structure en ceux de forme correspondante à l'obturateur du récipient et présentant des moyens de clipsage permettant de fixer de façon amovible le doseur sur le col du récipient.According to one embodiment of the invention, the metering device is fixed to the closure device, and for this purpose comprises, adjacent to its diffusion zone, a structure in those corresponding to the closure of the container and having means clip allowing the dispenser to be removably attached to the neck of the container.
  • D'autres caractéristiques et avantages de la présente invention apparaîtront à la lecture de la description suivante à la figure unique annexée qui est une vue latérale partielle avec arrachement au niveau du goulot, d'une forme de réalisation de récipient de conditionnement selon l'invention.Other characteristics and advantages of the present invention will appear on reading the following description in the single appended figure which is a partial side view with cutaway at the neck, of an embodiment of packaging container according to the invention.
  • Dans la forme de réalisation représentée, le doseur 33, de forme sensiblement sphérique, présente axialement une cavité 34 de forme correspondante à celle du dispositif d'obturation 39 du récipient 38. Cette cavité 34 est pourvue sur son arète externe d'une structure de clipsage et constituée par des pattes 35 destinées à venir s'insérer entre le bord inférieur du dispositif d'obturation 39 et un épaulement supérieur 36 du col du récipient. Le doseur 33 repose par son organe distributeur 37 sur un épaulement inférieur 40 du col du récipient.In the embodiment shown, the metering device 33, of substantially spherical shape, has axially a cavity 34 of a shape corresponding to that of the closure device 39 of the container 38. This cavity 34 is provided on its outer edge with a structure of clipping and constituted by lugs 35 intended to be inserted between the lower edge of the closure device 39 and an upper shoulder 36 of the container neck. The dispenser 33 rests by its dispensing member 37 on a lower shoulder 40 of the container neck.
  • Le fait que le doseur coopère de façon amovible avec le dispositif d'obturation, permet de résoudre le problème posé par les doseurs non-incorporés aux récipients de conditionnement destinés en particulier aux produits liquides nécessitant d'être utilisés en quantité dosée. Le fait également que le doseur puisse être pourvu d'un dispositif distributeur, et être utilisé tel quel après remplissage dans des machines à laver constitue également une solution apportée aux problèmes de la distribution et de la diffusion de produits liquides dans lesdites machines.The fact that the dispenser cooperates in a removable manner with the closure device, makes it possible to solve the problem posed by the dispensers not incorporated in the packaging containers intended in particular for liquid products requiring to be used in metered quantity. The fact also that the dispenser can be provided with a dispensing device, and be used as it is after filling in washing machines is also a solution to the problems of distribution and distribution of liquid products in said machines.
  • Lorsque le doseur-distributeur est prélevé du récipient de conditionnement de l'invention, on y verse une quantité prédéterminée de l'agent de détergence renfermé dans ce dernier et, comme décrit dans le brevet français 2 563 250, on place le dispositif dans le tambour de la machine à laver, puis on met en route et on laisse se dérouler le cycle de lavage habituel de la machine, le dispositif contenant le produit étant placé de préférence vers le haut de la cuve dans le tambour. Ainsi, comme dans la plupart des machines à laver actuelles, le tambour n'entre en rotation que lorsque le remplissage de la cuve est terminé, le doseur-distributeur ne commencera à se vider qu'en présence d'une quantité suffisante d'eau pour éviter le contact prolongé du linge sec ou juste humide avec le détergent concentré. On notera qu'il est également possible de placer le doseur-distributeur au fond du tambour, notamment dans le cas où celui- entre en rotation dès le début de l'admission de l'eau, ou même au milieu du linge. L'utilisateur choisira la position la mieux adaptée aux circonstances particulières de son lavage. A la fin de l'essorage, le doseur-distributeur est sorti de la machine à laver et est réincorporé au récipient de conditionnement de l'invention, pour une utilisation ultérieure. Il est clair que les meilleurs résultats de lavage seront obtenus en mettant en oeuvre des doseurs-distributeurs présentant les caractéristiques particulières du dispositif distributeur-diffuseur décrit dans le brevet français 2 570 720.When the dispenser-dispenser is taken from the packaging container of the invention, a predetermined quantity of the detergency agent contained therein is poured into it and, as described in French patent 2,563,250, the device is placed in the drum of the washing machine, then the normal washing cycle of the machine is started and allowed to run, the device containing the product being preferably placed towards the top of the tank in the drum. Thus, as in most modern washing machines, the drum does not rotate until the filling of the tank is completed, the doser-distributor will begin to empty only in the presence of a sufficient amount of water to avoid prolonged contact of dry or just damp laundry with the concentrated detergent. It will be noted that it is also possible to place the dispenser-distributor at the bottom of the drum, in particular in the case where it enters in rotation from the start of the admission of water, or even in the middle of the laundry. The user will choose the position best suited to the particular circumstances of his washing. At the end of the spin, the dispenser-dispenser is removed from the washing machine and is reincorporated into the packaging container of the invention, for later use. It is clear that the best washing results will be obtained by using dispenser-dispensers having the particular characteristics of the dispenser-diffuser device described in French patent 2,570,720.
  • Les matériaux constitutifs des différents composants des récipients de conditionnement de l'invention peuvent être en un matériau présentant les caractéristiques de résistance mécanique et aux agents chimiques appropriées, par exemple en matière plastique.The materials constituting the various components of the packaging containers of the invention may be made of a material having the characteristics of mechanical resistance and to the appropriate chemical agents, for example plastic.
