Abstract

Disclosed is a foam head (1) for a propellant container (2) with an inner and an outer crimped edge (3, 4) of a valve disk (5). Said foam head (1) comprises an actuating button (6) and a foam discharge port (7) and is embodied so as to sit directly on a valve stem (8). A bottom section (9) of the foam head (1) has an outer diameter (10) that is approximately identical to an inner diameter (11) of the inner crimped edge (3). An outer rib (13) which faces the actuating button (6) is disposed in a lower area (12) of the bottom section (9) so as to engage underneath a bottom side (14) of the inner crimped edge (3). A lower edge (15) of the bottom section (9) is provided with at least one recess (16) in order to form an annular spring (17).

Description

Foam head and foam head with a propellant tank

The invention relates to a foam head according to the preamble of the preamble of claim 1 and a foam head with a propellant gas container according to the preamble of the preamble of claim 2.

A genus forming foam plastic head as a mass-produced article is known for example from EP0792821A1, which is connected to be fixed with an outer Crimprand a propellant gas container.

In contrast, the present invention is the first object of creating a foam head that achieved by simple measures a substantial material usage reduction. The invention has the second sibling object of creating a foam head with a propellant gas container achieved by simple measures a substantial use of material saving and the LPG container can be used by simple measures for other purposes.

These objects are achieved according to the features of the characterizing portion of claim 1 and of claim 2. Other objects, advantages / features of the invention will become apparent from the dependent claims.

The invention is described in more detail using two embodiments.

It shows:

Figure 1 in an axial section a first embodiment of an unconfirmed foam head, which is connected with a propellant gas container.

Fig. 2 is a detail view of X in FIG. 1;

Fig. 3 is an axial sectional view as in FIG 1 but in an actuated state. Figure 4 is a detailed view Y of Fig. 3.

Figure 5 is an exempt foam head of FIG. 1.

Fig. 6 is a side view of the foam head of FIG. 5;

Fig. 7 is a bottom view of the foam head of FIG. 6; Fig. 8 & 9 in different perspective views of the foam head of FIG. 6; Figure 10 is an axial sectional view in a propellant gas container without foam head. Figure 1 1 in an axial section of a second embodiment of an unconfirmed foam head, which is connected with a propellant gas container. which is connected to a sleeve on the outer Crimprand, and Fig. 12 is a detailed view Z of Fig. 1 1.

Fig. 1 shows as a first embodiment of a foam head 1 for a propellant gas container 2 with an inner and an outer Crimprand 3.4 a valve disk 5, wherein the actuating button 6, and a foam dispensing opening 7 having foam head 1 formed directly sitzbar on a valve stem 8 , A lower portion 9 of the foam head 1 has approximately such an outside diameter 10 as an inner diameter of 1 1 of the inner Crimprands 3, wherein the lower portion 9 of the foam head 1 can be tilted still of FIG. 3 within the inner Crimprands 3. In a bottom portion 12 of the lower portion 9 of the actuating button 6 is arranged opposite to an outer rib 13 for engaging under a lower side 14 of the inner Crimprands. 3 To form a ring spring 17 a lower edge 15 of the lower portion 9 is provided with at least one recess sixteenth This ensures that can be actuated, the foam head 1 and is connected to the propellant gas container 2 and can not fall. The restoring force after the operation of the operation button 6 for applying a foam subset is given by the resilient valve stem. 8

The foam head 1 can be provided against unintentional operation with a indicated by dashed lines protective cap 25 which is releasably connected to the outer Crimprand 4 again.

Fig. 2 shows a detailed view X of FIG. 1.

Fig. 3 shows an axial sectional view as in FIG. 1 but in an actuated with the actuating button 6 state. Hence a tilting of the outer rib 13 on the lower side 14 of the inner Crimprands 3 is clear.

Fig. 4 shows a detailed view Y of FIG. 3.

Fig. 5 shows an exempt foam head 1 of FIG. 1, which has a receptacle 23 for the valve stem. 8

Fig. 6 shows a side view of the foam head 1 according to the Fig. 5.

Fig. 7 shows a bottom view of the foam head 1 according to Fig. 6.

Fig. 8 & 9 show to further view in different perspective views of the foam head 1 according to Fig. 6.

Fig. 10 shows in an axial section a propellant gas container 2 without foam head 1.

Fig. 11 shows, as a second embodiment of a foam head 1 with a propellant gas container 2 with an inner and an outer Crimprand 3.4 a valve disk 5, wherein the actuating button 6, and a foam dispensing opening 7 having foam head 1 directly formed sitzbar on a valve stem 8 is wherein a lower portion 9 of the foam head 1 about such an outer diameter 10 has such an inner diameter of 1 1 of the inner Crimprands 3. In a lower portion 12 of the lower portion 9 of the actuating button 6 is opposite an outer rib 13 for engaging under a lower side 14 of the inner Crimprands 3 is arranged. To form a ring spring 17 a lower edge 15 of the lower portion 9 is provided with at least one recess sixteenth This ensures that can be actuated, the foam head 1 and is connected to the propellant gas container 2 and can not fall. The restoring force after the operation of the operation button 6 for applying a foam subset is given by the spring-loaded valve stem. 8 This second embodiment differs from the first embodiment according to the Fig. 1 essentially in that the outer Crimprand 4 is provided as a connection seat 18 of the at least upper portion 19 of the propellant tank 2 sheathing sleeve 20, said sleeve 20 by a snap ring 26 4 is connected to the outer Crimprand the sleeve 20 is formed as a handle portion 21, whereby handling is facilitated during application, in particular, when the handle part 21 is formed non-slip. Optionally, the sleeve 20 can be configured as a decoration part 22, for example by a special coloring and / or imprint, for example, for more information on the foam product. As a foam product, a hair care product, for example, be provided.

The foam head 1 against unintentional operation with a indicated by dashed lines protective cap 25 (FIG. 11) are provided, which is detachably connected to a clamping collar 27 above the sleeve 20 back, wherein the outer diameter of the clamping collar 27 corresponds to the outer diameter of the Crimprand 4, thereby commercial caps 25 can be used.

Fig. 12 shows a detailed view Z from FIG. 11.

A secure tilt seat of the foam head 1 is ensured by a combination of the annular spring 17 due to the spring effect of the

Outside diameter 10 and the recess 16 with the one-sided outer rib 13 which hooks under the inner, lower Crimprand fourteenth A manual pressure by a finger to the operation button 6 of the foam head 1 causes a tilting of the foam head 1 and activating the Ventilstems 8. It is also a two-finger actuation possible (by two diametrically oppositely disposed actuating surfaces) at correspondingly changed construction then the annular spring 17 has, however, only a holding function and does not support the tilting action.

The foam discharge port 7 at the foam head 1 is here for an inverted application (foam head 1 below) are provided, but it can also - as well as the first embodiment according to the Fig. 1 - a horizontal application or with upwardly directed foam head 1 are provided, in which case with the lower part of a corresponding Ventilstems (elastic) riser 24 (indicated by dashed lines) is connected to 8, to the floor (not shown) of the propellant container 2 leads. The foam head 1 can be provided against unintentional operation with a protection cap indicated by dashed lines 25 (Fig. 1) which is releasably connected to the outer Crimprand 4 again.

An assembly of the foam head 1 to the valve stem 8 is via high-speed systems (sliding seat on the valve stem 8 and face seal upon actuation).

Due to the invention, a savings in material / cost reduction of about 50% compared with a position securing on the valve outer diameter 10 of the prior art is possible.
