Description

Die Erfindung betrifft einen Stapelbehälter aus Kunststoff, insbesondere geeignet für den Transport gefährlicher Flüssigkeiten, der eine kubische Form mit abgerundeten Ecken und Kanten aufweist und im Blasverfahren hergestellt ist, an dessen Oberboden in der vertikalen Formteilebene ein Handgriff und nahe der Vorderwand des Behälters ein Ein- und Ausgießstutzen angeformt sind, um die eine U-förmige aus dem Oberboden herausgewölbte Stapelfläche mit ebener Auflagefläche für einen weiteren gleichartigen Behälter angeordnet ist, die zur Formteilebene parallele Schenkel und eine dem Ein- und Ausgießstutzen gegenüberliegende Stapelschulter aufweist.The invention relates to a stacking container made of plastic, particularly suitable for the transport of dangerous liquids, which has a cubic shape with rounded corners and edges and is produced by the blowing process, on the top surface of which a handle in the vertical plane of the molded part and near the front wall of the container a and pouring spouts are formed, around which a U-shaped stacking surface arched out of the top floor with a flat support surface for another similar container is arranged, which has legs parallel to the molding plane and a stacking shoulder opposite the pouring and pouring spout.

Derartige Behälter müssen den gesetzlichen Bestimmungen für den Transport gefährlicher Flüssigkeiten genügen (Gefahrengutverordnungen Eisenbahn GGVE, -Strasse GGVS und -See GGVSee für Deutschland, die jedoch international gelten). Die dort festgelegten Prüfmethoden stellen sehr hohe Anforderungen an die Festigkeit, insbesondere nach langzeitigem chemischen Angriff durch gefährliche Flüssigkeiten, z.B. Peroxide, für die die Behälter zugelassen werden sollen. In der eingangs gewählten Bezeichnung "Behälter für den Transport gefährlicher Flüssigkeiten" sind daher solche zu verstehen, die diesen Prüfungsbedingungen genügen können.Such containers must comply with the legal provisions for the transport of dangerous liquids (GGVE Railway, Dangerous Goods Regulations GGVS and GGVSee Lakes for Germany, which apply internationally). The test methods specified there place very high demands on the strength, especially after long-term chemical attack by dangerous liquids, e.g. Peroxides for which the containers are to be approved. The term "container for the transport of dangerous liquids" chosen at the outset is therefore to be understood as meaning those which can meet these test conditions.

Desweiteren wird es für die Zukunft ein notwendiges Merkmal solcher Behälter werden, daß sie vollständig entleerbar sind, da bei den Entsorgungsstellen nur mehr Behälter angenommen werden können, bei denen Sicherheit besteht, daß in ihnen keine Reste der Inhaltsflüssigkeiten mehr zurückbleiben.Furthermore, it will become a necessary feature of such containers in the future that they can be completely emptied, since only those containers can be accepted at the disposal points which are certain that no residues of the contents liquids remain in them.

Die Ausbildung abgerundeter Ecken und Kanten, wie sie in EP-A-0 235 384 (Frohn) beschrieben sind, ergeben den Vorteil großer mechanischer Stabilität im Gegensatz zu rechtwinkligen Kanten, wie sie in EP-A-0 266 851 (Wiva) gezeigt sind. Diese begünstigen Korrosionsrisse bei chemischem Angriff durch gefährliche Füllgüter. Beide Behälter haben jedoch den Nachteil, daß für sie Stapelkappen benötigt werden.The formation of rounded corners and edges, as described in EP-A-0 235 384 (Frohn), give the advantage of great mechanical stability in contrast to rectangular edges, as shown in EP-A-0 266 851 (Wiva) . These promote corrosion cracks in the event of chemical attack by dangerous goods. However, both containers have the disadvantage that stacking caps are required for them.

Bei den vorgenannten Behältern und solchen, wie sie in DE-U-8700445 (E + E Plastic GmbH & Co.KG) und in DE-A-3224038 (Mauser Werke GmbH) beschrieben sind, bei denen die Schenkel der U-förmigen Auflagefläche der Behälteroberseite nach dem Bereich des Ausgießstutzens zu verkürzt und bis zu dessen Ansatz heruntergezogen ist, schneidet die vordere, ausgußseitige Behälterwand in einer Geraden die horizontale Schnittebene durch den Behälter in Höhe des Ansatzes des Ausgießstutzens. Auch bei leichtem, praktisch nicht vermeidbarem seitlichem Verkippen ist eine Restflüssigkeit in der tiefer geneigten Behälterschulter nicht mehr entleerbar.In the aforementioned containers and those as described in DE-U-8700445 (E + E Plastic GmbH & Co.KG) and in DE-A-3224038 (Mauser Werke GmbH), in which the legs of the U-shaped contact surface the top of the container is shortened to the area of the pouring spout and is pulled down to its neck, the front, spout-side container wall cuts the horizontal section plane through the container at the level of the neck of the pouring neck. Even with a slight, practically unavoidable tilting to the side, a residual liquid in the lower-inclined container shoulder can no longer be emptied.

Um diese Nachteile zu vermeiden war es Aufgabe der Erfindung, einen Behälter zu entwickeln, der den Prüferfordernissen des Transportes gefährlicher Flüssigkeiten auch unter extremsten Bedingungen genügt und der zudem restlos auch bei dem nicht vermeidbaren seitlichen Verkippen beim Ausgießen mit Sicherheit restlos entleert wird.In order to avoid these disadvantages, it was an object of the invention to develop a container which meets the test requirements for the transport of dangerous liquids even under the most extreme conditions and which is also completely emptied completely, even when the side tilting is unavoidable when pouring.

Diese Aufgabe wird gemäß der Erfindung mit den in den Ansprüchen angegebenen Maßnahmen gelöst.This object is achieved according to the invention with the measures specified in the claims.

Ausführungsbeispiele der Erfindung werden anhand der Zeichnungen im folgenden beschrieben.Embodiments of the invention are described below with reference to the drawings.

Der in Figur A, B und C dargestellte Behälter zeigt bis zur Behältervorderwand a vorgezogene Schenkel b der durchgehend in gleicher Höhe herausgewölbten Stapelfläche c. Beim Ausgießen dieses Behälters bleibt der in dem von den Enden der Schenkel b gebildeten Raum ein Rest der Flüssigkeit, der auch bei seitlichem Verkippen nicht ausfließen kann, wie dies in den Figuren B und C durch Strichelung bei d angedeutet ist.The container shown in FIGS. A, B and C shows, up to the front wall a of the container, legs b of the stack surface c which is arched out continuously at the same height. When this container is poured out, the liquid in the space formed by the ends of the legs b remains, which cannot flow out even when tilted sideways, as is indicated by the dashed lines at d in FIGS.

Der in Figur 1 perspektivisch dargestellte erfindungsgemäße Behälter hat eine kubische Form mit stark abgerundeten Ecken und Kanten, die ihm eine große Stabilität verleihen. Er ist im Blasverfahren in bekannter Weise hergestellt, wobei die durch die gestrichelte Schnittlinie 1 gekennzeichnete senkrechte Formtrennebene den Behälter in Richtung des Handgriffes 2 und durch die Achse des Ein- und Ausgießstutzens 3 schneidet. Die Stapelfläche 4 wird von den beiden Schenkein 5 und 6 und der dem Ein- Ausgießstutzen 3 gegenüberliegeden Stapelschulter 7 gebildet, die aus dem Oberboden 8 des Behälter herausgewölbt sind.The container according to the invention shown in perspective in FIG. 1 has a cubic shape with strongly rounded corners and edges, which give it great stability. It is produced in a known manner in the blowing process, the vertical mold parting line marked by the broken line 1 cutting the container in the direction of the handle 2 and through the axis of the pouring and pouring spout 3. The stacking surface 4 is formed by the two legs 5 and 6 and the stacking shoulder 7 located opposite the pouring spout 3, which are arched out of the top 8 of the container.

Die Schenkel 5 und 6 enden bei etwa 3/4 der Gesamtbreite der Behälterseitenwände 9 und 10 und fallen dann in nach den oberen Ecken 11 und 12 der abgerundeten Seitenkanten 13 und 14 der leicht ausgewölbten Behältervorderwand 15 zu geneigten Flächen 16 und 17 unter die Höhe des Ansatzes 18 des Ein- und Ausgießstutzens 3 ab, um dann zu diesem Ansatz 18 hochgezogen zu sein. Die inneren Kanten 19, 20 dieser Flächen 16 und 17 verlaufen flacher in der Höhe des Oberbodens 8, die äußeren Kanten 21 und 22 erreichen an ihrem untersten Punkten bei den Ecken 11 und 12 eine Tiefe von etwa dem doppelten Abstand zwischen Oberboden 8 und Stapelfläche 4.The legs 5 and 6 end at about 3/4 of the total width of the container side walls 9 and 10 and then fall into the upper corners 11 and 12 of the rounded side edges 13 and 14 of the slightly bulging container front wall 15 to inclined surfaces 16 and 17 below the height of the neck 18 of the pouring and pouring spout 3, in order to then be pulled up to this neck 18. The inner edges 19, 20 of these surfaces 16 and 17 run flatter at the height of the upper floor 8, the outer edges 21 and 22 reach a depth of approximately twice the distance between the upper floor 8 and the stacking surface 4 at the corners 11 and 12 .

Durch diese Ausgestaltung der Flächen 16 und 17 wird erreicht, daß die von ihnen gebildeten Innenräume der Schenkel 5 und 6 beim Ausgießen des Behälters über dem Ansatz 18 des Ein- und Ausgießstutzens 3 liegen und in Ausgußlagenach diesem hin ohne ein die Inhaltsflüssigkeit aufstauendes Hindernis abfallen. Der Behälter ist daher in zuverlässiger Weise restlos entleerbar und zwar auch dann, wenn er seitlich um einen größeren Winkel verkippt wird, womit bei dem üblichen Entleeren gerechnet werden muß.This configuration of the surfaces 16 and 17 ensures that the inner spaces of the legs 5 and 6 formed by them lie when the container is poured out over the neck 18 of the pouring and pouring spout 3 and fall into the pouring position after this without an obstacle to the liquid content. The container can therefore be completely emptied in a reliable manner, even if it is laterally tilted by a larger angle, which must be expected during normal emptying.

Die Flächen 16, 17 können von der Stapelfläche 4 bis zur Höhe des Oberbodens 8 flach verlaufen oder wie dies in Figur 5 und 6 dargestellt ist, in einer der Senkrechten angenäherten Ebene 23, 24. Diese kann, wie Figur 5 dies zeigt, bis zum Ein-und Ausgießstutzen vorgezogen sein oder nach der Behälterseitenwand 9 bzw. 10, so daß die Vorderkanten dieser Ebenen 23, 24 bei 25, 26 liegen.The surfaces 16, 17 can run flat from the stacking surface 4 to the height of the upper floor 8 or, as shown in FIGS. 5 and 6, in a plane 23, 24 approximated to the vertical. This can, as shown in FIG. 5, up to The pouring and pouring spout should be pulled forward or after the container side wall 9 or 10, so that the front edges of these levels 23, 24 are at 25, 26.

Wie Figur 1 dies zeigt, kann der Ein- und Ausgießstutzen unter leichter nach unten verlaufender Ausbuchtung 27 der Vorderwand 15 vorgezogen sein. Dadurch wird der Ansatz 18 des Ein- und Ausgießstutzens 3 in Ausgußlage des Behälters tiefer gelegt und gleichzeitig können die Schenkel 5 und 6 der Stapelfläche 4 entsprechend weiter vorgezogen werden, um eine bessere Auflage des auf ihnen aufgestapelten Behälters zu ergeben.As shown in FIG. 1, the pouring and pouring spout can be advanced over the front wall 15 with a bulge 27 that runs slightly downward. As a result, the neck 18 of the pouring and pouring spout 3 is lowered in the pouring position of the container, and at the same time the legs 5 and 6 of the stacking surface 4 can be further advanced accordingly, in order to provide a better support for the container stacked on them.

Der Behälter kann in bekannter Weise in seiner Stapelfläche 4 Einbuchtungen z.B. in Form von größeren quer zu den Schenkeln verlaufenden Rillen aufweisen, in die entsprechende Ausbuchtungen an der Unterseite eines gleichartigen Behälters bei dessen Aufstapeln eingreifen. Damit wird verhindert, daß der aufruhende Behälter durch Verrutschen in Richtung auf den Ein- und Ausgießstutzen 3 über die Abschrägung der Enden der Schenkel 5, 6 abkippen kann. Um ein solches Abkippen zu vermeiden kann der Ein- und Ausgießstutzen so verlängert werden, daß die Oberfläche seiner Verschlußkappe 28 in verschraubten Zustand in der Ebene der Stapelfläche 4 liegt.The container can have 4 indentations e.g. in the form of larger grooves running transversely to the legs, into which corresponding bulges on the underside of a similar container engage when it is stacked. This prevents the restful container from tipping over by slipping in the direction of the pouring and pouring spout 3 over the bevelled ends of the legs 5, 6. In order to avoid such a tipping, the pouring and pouring spout can be extended so that the surface of its closure cap 28 lies in the screwed state in the plane of the stacking surface 4.
