Abstract

A bottle cap capable of containing an ingredient which is subsequently added to the contents of the container to which the cap is applied comprises a cap 1 having an internal groove 10 which receives a flange 20 provided at the upper edge of a store bucket 2. The bucket contains ingredients 22 such as edible essence, colourant, juice, or coffee in powder, solid, or liquid form, and is opened by pulling on a ring 24. The cap has a tamper-evident skirt 3 which has projections 30 which engage beneath a rim B on the container. A closure film 23 may be applied to the bucket 2 before it is inserted into the cap 1. The container may contain alkaline mineral water, milk, fruit juice or an alcoholic beverage.

Description

2362152 BOTTLE CAP FOR MAKING INSTANT BEVERAGE This invention relates

generally to a bottle cap, rnore particularly. it relates to a bottle cap that can store ingredient for making instant beverage.

By "ingredient" is meant a substance or substances which, on contact with a liquid contained in the container will make the instant beverage. The ingredient may take many forms, such as powder or liquid, and could take the form, for example, of edible essence, colourant, flavouring, powdered juice, syrup, or coffee powder.

The liquid contained in the container is typically water, although other liquids such as milk, fruit juice or alcoholic beverages may also be mentioned as possibilities.

it is not long since debut of alkaline mineral water. it becomes a worldwide known sugarless beverage, if it can be assorted as one kind of beverage, and sometimes in somewhere, people even take it as drinking water in daily life..

Maybe, under competition pressure, some makers start recently to 20 mix 9.he alkaline mineral water with essence, colorant, etc, to becorne tasted water for stimulating and enhancing consumer's purchase desire. However, as the tasted water is seasoned at works without exception, and 1Or preservation purpose, the makers usually add sorne anti-septic before the tasted water is filled in a PET bottle, therefore, people cannot help thinking that the added additive will more or less do something harmful to human health, which might be the major reason to have the market depressed.

In view of abovesaid imperfection, after years of constant effort in research, the inventor of this invention has consequently developed, and proposed a novel bottle cap pertaining to the subject matter.

The primary object of this invention is to provide a bottle cap for making instant beverage, wherein a store bucket is embedded in an inner wall of the bottle cap, and a store chamber for storing a ingredient is formed in the store bucket. Before drinking, a user is supposed to pull a pull- pop ring of the store bucket away, then, shake the bottle drastically to sufficiently dissolve the ingredient in the water.

In couple seconds, the inside water will become a tasted beverage without any content of anti-septic.

For more detailed information regarding this invention together with rFurther advantages or features thereof, at least an example of preferred embodiment will be elucidated below with reference to the annexed drawings.

The present invention will now be described by way of example with reference with reference of the annexed drawings, in which:

Fig. 1 is an exploded view of this invention in three dimensions, Fig. 2 is an assembled view of this invention in three dimensions; Fig. 3 is a schematic view showing that this invention is under use; Fig. 4 illustrates drawing a pull ring of this invention; Fig. 5 illustrates pouring a ingredient of this invention into a bottle; Fig. 6 illustrates swaying the bottle of this invention; and Fig. 7 is a schematic view illustrating that pouring of the ingredient is completed.

Referring to the various drawings attached herewith, a detailed description of the structural features of "BOTTLE CAP FOR

2 MAKING INSTANT BEVERAGE' of the present invention is as follow:

As shown in Fig.1 to 5, abottle cap for making instant beverage comprises a bottle cap 1 and a store bucket 2, wherein a reception groove 10 is circularly formed in an inner top end of the bottle cap 1; an insertion flange 20 is circularly disposed on a top end of the store bucket 2. Further, the center portion of the store bucket 2 is a store chamber 21 for filling a ingredient 22 shaped in form of -Powder, solid piece, or liquid, and made from edible essence, colorant, juice powder, 1.0 coffee, etc in diversified tastes without any anti-septic. After the ingredient has been filled in the store chamber 21, the store bucket 2 is sealed in vacuum with a thin film 23. A pull-pop ring 24 is arranged at a bottom end of the store chamber 21, and a protruding piece 30 Is circularly disposed in an inner wall of a safety ring 3, which, the safety ring 3, is coupled with a bottom end of the bottle cap 1.

When assembling, as shown in Fig. 2, the procedure starts to:

put the ingredient 22 in the store bucket 2 and seal it with the thin film 23; then, dispose the store bucket 2 in the bottle cap 1 by buckling the insertion flange 20 in the reception groove 10; connect the safety ring 3 to the bottom end of the bottle cap 1 by highfrequency welding; collar the bottle cap 1 on a bottle mouth A and turn the bottle cap 1 tightly to have the plurality of protruding pieces 30 of the safety ring 3 propped against a retaining lip B on the bottle mouth A (shown in Fig. 3). Now, the bottle is sealed to prevent moisture and air from entering the store chamber 21 to avoid the ingredient 22 being wetted.

Beside, the thin film 23 above the store chamber 21 may be waived, namely. , after filling the ingredient 22 in the store chamber 21. the store bucket 2 is embedded in the bottle cap I directly to achiev-5 same purpose.

A consumer is supposed to turn to detach the bottle cap I from the safety ring 3 for opening the bottle. Now, the consumer has two choices; to drink the alkaline mineral water or a tasted beverage. If he chooses the former, he can drink it as usual. Or, wher, the latter is favored, he has to further pull the pull-pop ring 24 of the store bucketL 2 away (shown in Fig. 4) and pour the ingredient 22 in the store chamber 21 into the inside mineral water (shown in Fig. 5), reset the bottle cap I by screwing it tightly, and shake it drastically to dissolve the ingredient 22 in the water rapidly to set his favorite tasted instant beverage ready for drink.

According to the abovesaid, the merits of this invention may be summarized as follows:

As a separation structure is adopted for this invention, the liquid and the ingredient are filled individually. Therefore, after the ingredient is filled, the store chamber of the store bucket is vacuumed and sealed with the thin film, a bottle of safe, hygienic, and ready for service tasted mineral water is completed.

2. The store bucket may be designed to fit various bottle caps, or produced alone and assembled. in an existing bottle cap for extending its common applicability.

4 3. The thin film and the protruding piece build dual barriers to ensure barring air and moisture for keeping quality of the ingredient.

4. Mineral water or tasted beverage is selectable by buying a single bottle.

5. An instant tasted water or beverage with fresh taste without adding any anti-septic can be ready for drink in couple seconds.

Although, this invention has been described in terrns of preferred.

embodiments, it is apparent that numerous variations and modifications may be made without departing from the true spirit and scope thereof, as set forth in the following claims.

1 claim:
