Description

La présente invention concerne un biberon à membrane antiaérophagique. The present invention relates to a bottle antiaérophagique membrane.

On connaít un tel biberon, décrit dans le document WO 89/11546, comportant une membrane antiaérophagique montée sur un support périphérique. Discloses such a bottle, disclosed in WO 89/11546, comprising a antiaérophagique membrane mounted on a device carrier.

Ce support est ensuite fixé sur l'ouverture du fond du biberon au moyen d'une bague vissée sur le corps du biberon, la membrane antiaérophagique étant maintenue entre l'extrémité du corps du biberon et la bague. This support is then attached to the bottom opening of the bottle by means of a threaded ring on the body of the bottle, antiaérophagique membrane being held between the end of the bottle body and the ring.

Cependant un tel dispositif comporte plusieurs pièces qu'il est nécessaire de parfaitement ajuster lors du montage, afin d'éviter toute fuite de liquide. However, such a device comprises several parts it is necessary to perfectly fit during assembly, to prevent fluid leakage.

En outre, ces différentes pièces amovibles ne facilitent pas le nettoyage et le remontage du biberon. In addition, these moving parts do not facilitate cleaning and reassembly of the bottle.

La présente invention a pour but de résoudre les inconvénients précités et de proposer un biberon à membrane antiaérophagique de montage et démontage simplifiés. The present invention aims to solve the aforementioned drawbacks and to propose a bottle to antiaérophagique membrane of simplified assembly and disassembly.

Le biberon visé par l'invention est constitué par un récipient comportant un fond amovible et une membrane microporeuse ayant une fonction antiaérophagique et s'étendant dans une ouverture ménagée dans le fond amovible. The bottle to which the invention is constituted by a container having a removable base and a microporous membrane having a function antiaérophagique and extending into an opening in the removable bottom.

Selon l'invention, la membrane microporeuse est solidaire du fond amovible. According to the invention, the microporous membrane is integral with the removable bottom.

Une telle réalisation permet de faciliter le nettoyage du corps du biberon et du fond amovible. Such an embodiment allows easy cleaning of the bottle body and the removable bottom.

En outre, la membrane microporeuse est montée sur le biberon directement lors de la fixation du fond amovible sur le corps du biberon, et ne requiert pas une grande précision lors du montage. In addition, the microporous membrane is directly mounted on the bottle when attaching the removable bottom of the body of the bottle, and does not require high precision during assembly.

De préférence, la membrane microporeuse s'étend dans plusieurs ouvertures ménagées dans le fond amovible. Preferably, the microporous membrane extends in several apertures in the removable base.

Cette disposition permet, pour une même surface globale de membrane microporeuse, de renforcer la structure du fond amovible, les différentes portions de membrane de dimensions réduites étant moins sujettes au percement qu'une unique membrane microporeuse de plus grande dimension. This arrangement allows, for the same overall surface of microporous membrane, to enhance the removable bottom of the structure, reduced dimensions different membrane portions being less prone to puncture a single microporous membrane of larger size.

De préférence, la membrane microporeuse est fixée par surmoulage sur le fond amovible. Preferably, the microporous membrane is fixed by overmoulding on the removable bottom.

D'autres particularités et avantages de l'invention apparaítront encore dans la description ci-après. Other features and advantages of the invention will become apparent in the description below.

Aux dessins annexés, donnés à titre d'exemples non limitatifs : In the accompanying drawings given as non-limiting examples:

  • la figure 1 est une vue en coupe longitudinale d'un biberon conforme à l'invention : FIG 1 is a longitudinal sectional view of a bottle according to the invention:
  • la figure 2 est une vue en coupe, selon la ligne II-II à la figure 3 du fond amovible d'un biberon conforme à l'invention : et Figure 2 is a sectional view along line II-II in Figure 3 of the removable bottom of a bottle according to the invention: and
  • la figure 3 est une vue de dessus du fond amovible de la figure 2. Figure 3 is a top view of the removable bottom of Figure 2.

En référence à la figure 1, un biberon est constitué d'un répicient 1 sensiblement cylindrique, par exemple en matière plastique transparente, telle que du polycarbonate. Referring to Figure 1, a bottle comprises a répicient one substantially cylindrical, for example of transparent plastic, such as polycarbonate.

Ce récipient comporte un fond amovible 2 et une membrane microporeuse 7 ayant une fonction antiaérophagique et s'étendant dans une ouverture 8 ménagée dans le fond amovible 2. This container has a removable bottom 2 and a microporous membrane 7 having a function antiaérophagique and extending into an opening 8 provided in the removable base 2.

Cette membrane est imperméable au lait mais perméable à l'air et permet ainsi l'équilibre des pressions entre l'intérieur et l'extérieur du biberon. This membrane is impermeable to the milk but air permeable and thus allows the balance of pressures between the inside and the outside of the bottle.

Tel qu'illustré à la figure 3, la membrane microporeuse 7 s'étend de préférence dans plusieurs ouvertures 8 ménagées dans le fond amovible 2 du biberon. As shown in Figure 3, the microporous membrane 7 preferably extends in a plurality of apertures 8 formed in the removable base 2 of the bottle.

Les ouvertures 8 sont réalisées dans un support 6, ici sous forme de disque qui vient se fixer au fond amovible 2. Openings 8 are made in a support 6, here in disc form which is fixed to the removable bottom 2.

Les ouvertures 8 sont de préférence réparties symétriquement autour du centre du fond. The apertures 8 are preferably symmetrically distributed about the bottom center.

La membrane microporeuse 7 est fixée par surmoulage au support 6, par chaque ouverture 8. The microporous membrane 7 is attached by overmoulding to the support 6, by each opening 8.

Le support 6 lui-même peut être fixé par surmoulage dans le fond amovible 2. The support 6 itself may be fixed by overmoulding in the removable base 2.

Dans cet exemple, le support 6 est fixé au centre de la partie de fond 5 du fond amovible 2. In this example, the support 6 is fixed to the center of the bottom part 5 of the removable base 2.

Des pieds 4, au nombre de 3 par exemple, peuvent équiper la partie de fond 5 du fond amovible 2 pour assurer une bonne stabilité du biberon. 4 feet, 3 in number for example, can be fitted to the bottom portion 5 of the removable base 2 to ensure a good stability of the bottle.

De manière connue, un joint en élastomère peut en outre être disposé entre le fond amovible 2 et le corps 1 du biberon pour assurer l'étanchéité. In known manner, an elastomer seal can also be disposed between the removable base 2 and the body 1 of the bottle to seal.

Bien entendu, l'invention n'est pas limitée à l'exemple décrit ci-dessus et de nombreuses modifications pourraient être apportées à celui-ci sans sortir du cadre de l'invention. Of course, the invention is not limited to the example described above and many modifications could be made to it without departing from the scope of the invention.

Ainsi, le support 6 pourrait être équipé d'une seule ouverture obstruée par la membrane microporeuse. Thus, the support 6 may be equipped with a single opening obstructed by the microporous membrane.
