Description

  The present invention relates to a nicotine suction pipe containing a nicotine solution and a nicotine holder, and more particularly to a pipe for sucking nicotine vaporized from a nicotine solution together with air and a holder containing the nicotine solution.

Smoking articles such as cigarettes and cigars generate smoke containing nicotine, that is, mainstream smoke, when cigarettes inside the cigarette are burned. Smokers can ingest nicotine in mainstream smoke by sucking mainstream smoke. As an article for ingesting nicotine without causing smoke generation, a chewing gum containing nicotine and a sheet-like adhesive plaster coated with a nicotine-containing material are known. .
However, chewing gum and adhesive plaster eliminate the need for a puffing action associated with cigarette or cigar smoking, and thus cannot provide the consumer with a sense of release or satisfaction generated by the puffing action.
Therefore, there is a demand for a nicotine suction pipe that can ingest nicotine without generating smoke by a puffing operation similar to that of a smoking article such as a cigarette or cigar.
For example, the suction pipe disclosed in JP-A-6-114105 includes a hollow shank that can accommodate a cigarette or a filter cigarette, and this shank has a mouthpiece at one end thereof. A bowl with a cap is connected to the other end of the shank, and the cap has a vent hole. Further, hydratable fibers containing water and an electric heater are accommodated in the bowl.
When air in the suction pipe is sucked through the mouthpiece by the consumer, external air is introduced into the bowl from the cap vent. This introduced air is humidified when passing through the hydratable fiber, and the humidified air is heated by an electric heater. Thereafter, the hot humidified air heats the filter cigarette as it passes through the filter cigarette. Therefore, nicotine, fragrance, and the like are vaporized from the cigarette in the filter cigarette, and the vaporized nicotine, fragrance, and the like are sucked together with the humidified air by the consumer.
According to the above-described suction pipe, the external air passes through the hydratable fiber containing water during suction, and the humidified air generated in the bowl passes through the filter cigarette. For this reason, the suction resistance of the suction pipe is much larger than that of the filter cigarette, and the consumer cannot easily suck nicotine and fragrances.
Moreover, since the suction pipe has a bowl, its external shape is greatly different from that of a bar-like smoking article such as cigarette or cigar. Therefore, the suction pipe is not easy to handle and store as compared to the rod-shaped smoking article.

The object of the present invention is to allow nicotine to be ingested with a puffing action in the same manner as a rod-shaped smoking article such as cigarette or cigar, and to form a rod similar in appearance to a smoking article and to have a low suction resistance. To provide a nicotine suction pipe and a nicotine holder.
In order to achieve the above object, a nicotine suction pipe according to the present invention is a rod-shaped outer tube having both ends open, and a nicotine generator disposed in the outer tube, wherein the nicotine solution is absorbed and is removed from the nicotine solution. A liquid absorbing material that allows vaporization of nicotine, and a nicotine suction path that extends substantially through the nicotine generating body in the axial direction of the outer tube and is clearly separated from the liquid absorbing material, A nicotine generator and a mouthpiece attached to one end of the outer tube.
When the above-described nicotine suction pipe is sucked, the pressure in the outer tube becomes negative, and air is introduced from the outside into the outer tube. The negative pressure in the outer tube promotes the vaporization of nicotine from the nicotine solution in the liquid absorbent, and the vaporized nicotine is sent into the consumer's mouth along with the introduced air.
As described above, since the consumer ingests nicotine with the suction of the suction pipe, that is, with the puffing operation, the same satisfaction as smoking of a filter cigarette or cigar can be obtained.
In addition, the suction pipe has a nicotine suction path clearly separated from the liquid absorbent material, so the suction resistance of the suction pipe is small, and the suction pipe itself has a rod shape. A feeling similar to that of a filter cigarette or cigar is given.
Furthermore, since the suction pipe does not generate smoke, there is no problem caused by smoke, and consumers can ingest nicotine even in non-smoking areas.
The mouthpiece may be removable from the nicotine holder or may be integrally coupled to the nicotine holder.
The nicotine solution is not limited to a solution in which only nicotine is dissolved in a solvent, and can contain additives other than nicotine.
Specifically, the nicotine generator is disposed concentrically in the outer tube, holds the liquid absorbent between the outer tube, and the inner tube forms the Nichicon suction path, and the inner tube. The tube may further include a plurality of small holes that are formed in the tube and vaporize the nicotine from the nicotine solution of the liquid absorbent material into the inner tube. In this case, the vaporized nicotine is sent into the consumer's mouth along with the introduced air flowing through the inner tube.
The liquid absorbent material may have a cylindrical shape that extends through the outer tube and has an outer diameter substantially equal to the inner diameter of the outer tube. In this case, the nicotine suction path extends in the axial direction of the outer tube through the liquid absorbent material. A plurality of axial passages therethrough can be included. The nicotine solution in the liquid absorbent vaporizes nicotine in the axial passage, and the vaporized nicotine is sent into the consumer's mouth along with the introduced air flowing in the axial passage.
The suction pipe may further include an outer axial passage formed between the inner peripheral surface of the outer tube and the outer peripheral surface of the cylindrical liquid absorbent material. The outer axial passage is formed on one of the inner peripheral surface of the outer tube and the outer peripheral surface of the liquid absorbent material, and is secured by a rib or groove extending in the axial direction of the outer tube. In this case, the nicotine vaporized from the outer peripheral surface of the liquid absorbent material is sent to the consumer through the outer axial passage along with the introduced air.
Furthermore, the outer tube of the suction pipe can have end walls with openings at both ends thereof, in which case the liquid absorbent is filled in the outer tube and is a porous granule having a larger diameter than the opening. The nicotine suction path is formed by a gap between the granules and a gap between the inner peripheral surface of the outer tube and the granules.
According to the above-described suction pipe, the porous granular material can be easily filled into the outer tube, and the nicotine suction path can be easily secured in the outer tube.
Silica gel particles are suitable as the porous granular material. Since the silica gel particles can absorb a large amount of nicotine solution, the effective use period of the suction pipe becomes longer.
Further, in this case, if the outer tube is formed of a transparent synthetic resin or a translucent colored synthetic resin, the consumer becomes lighter in the color of the silica gel particles as the vaporization of nicotine proceeds in the nicotine solution. The changing state can be visually recognized through the outer tube, and the remaining amount in the nicotine solution, that is, the use limit of the suction pipe can be easily grasped.
The object of the present invention is also achieved by a nicotine holder applied to a nicotine suction pipe, which nicotine holder is formed from the aforementioned outer tube and nicotine generator.
Before using the nicotine suction pipe or nicotine holder, in order to prevent the natural vaporization of Nichicon, the nicotine suction pipe or nicotine holder is closed at both ends of the outer tube by the seal, or the whole is film-wrapped. .

FIG. 6 is a longitudinal sectional view showing the nicotine suction pipe of the third embodiment,
FIG. 7 is a view showing a nicotine suction pipe of a fourth embodiment.

1 and 2, the nicotine suction pipe of the first embodiment includes a rod-shaped nicotine holder 1 and a mouthpiece 2 that can be attached to the nicotine holder 1. The mouthpiece 2 has a connection end for the nicotine holder 1, which has a cylindrical shape and has an outer diameter substantially equal to that of the nicotine holder 1. Therefore, when the suction pipe is assembled, the outer peripheral surface of the suction pipe continues smoothly from the mouthpiece 2 to the nicotine holder 1.
The nicotine holder 1 has a transparent outer tube 3 and an inner tube 5 disposed concentrically in the outer tube 3, and these tubes 3 and 5 are both made of synthetic resin. A liquid absorbent 4 is filled between the outer tube 3 and the inner tube 5, and a nicotine solution is soaked in the liquid absorbent 4.
For the nicotine solution, a solution obtained by dissolving chemically synthesized nicotine in a solvent such as an aqueous solution or alcohol, or a solution obtained by extracting nicotine of tobacco leaves in a solvent can be used. In order to obtain flavor and flavor, an extraction solution is preferred. In addition, such an extraction solution has an advantage that it is not subject to special legal regulations, unlike a medicine prescribed under the control of a doctor and a pharmacist.
Specifically, the extraction solution is a solution obtained by immersing a tobacco leaf powder material in a solvent and then filtering the powder material from the solvent, a solution obtained by concentrating and reducing the filtered solution, or a tobacco leaf. A solution in which a tar-like substance is extracted by dry distillation and dissolved in a solvent.
The concentration of nicotine in the extraction solution is low. Therefore, in order to obtain a nicotine solution having the same amount of nicotine as that contained in one cigarette, it is considered that 500 to 1500 mg of extraction solution is necessary. Moreover, the nicotine holder 1 is preferably about the same size as a normal cigarette.
Therefore, the liquid absorbent 4 is required to have a high absorption capacity for the extraction solution. Further, the liquid inhalation material 4 is also required to have a property of easily vaporizing the extraction solution. Therefore, the liquid absorbent material 4 is selected so as to satisfy the above-described requirements. Specifically, the liquid absorbent material 4 is formed of a granular material obtained by finely cutting, for example, a nonwoven fabric or a filter for cigarette or absorbent cotton. Such a granular material can be easily filled between the outer tube 3 and the inner tube 5, and the liquid absorbent material 4 can be obtained easily.
The outer tube 3 has an inner diameter of 6 mm to 7 mm and a length of 50 mm to 70 mm, and the inner tube 5 has an outer diameter of 2 mm to 3 mm and a length of 45 mm to 65 mm. Accordingly, the filling volume for the liquid absorbent 4 is secured in the nicotine holder 1 by about 1.00 cc to about 2.50 cc.
The nicotine solution, i.e. the extraction solution, can contain various additives in consideration of consumer preferences. As the additive, tobacco, mint, coffee, orange, tea, wine and the like can be used. If the nicotine holder 1, that is, the outer tube 3 has a color such as blue, brown, orange, green or wine red indicating the type of additive, the taste obtained by sucking the nicotine holder 1 is nicotine. In addition to being grasped from the color of the holder 1, consumers and surrounding people can also enjoy the nicotine holder 1 visually.
As shown in FIG. 1, a large number of small holes 7 are formed in the inner tube 5, and these small holes 7 are distributed throughout the inner tube 5. The small hole 7 partially exposes the liquid absorbent 4 inside the inner tube 5, that is, the internal flow path 6, whereby the nicotine is absorbed from the nicotine solution absorbed in the liquid absorbent 4 through the small hole 7. Can be vaporized, and the vaporized nicotine flows into the internal flow path 6.
In order to prevent undesired vaporization of the nicotine solution, both annular end faces of the liquid absorbent material 4 and both ends of the inner tube 5 are covered with a film-like seal 8 as shown in FIG. Specifically, the seal 8 is made of an aluminum foil that can be easily broken.
Note that a plug (not shown) can be used instead of the seal 8. This plug is removably inserted into the end of the inner tube 5 and has a flange that covers the annular end surface of the liquid absorbent material 4.
As is apparent from FIGS. 1 and 2, both end portions of the outer tube 3 protrude from the inner tube 5, i.e., both ends of the liquid absorbent 4, and recesses 30 are formed at both ends of the nicotine holder 1.
The outer tube 3 may have the same length as the inner tube 5. In this case, each end of the liquid absorbent 4 is positioned flush with the corresponding ends of the outer tube 3 and the inner tube 5, and the seal 8 wraps the end of the outer tube 3 so that the liquid absorbent 4 The annular end face and the open end of the inner tube 5 can be covered.
Both ends of the outer tube 3 have external threads 9 on the outer peripheral surface thereof, and the external threads 9 are used for attaching the above-described mouthpiece 2 to the nicotine holder 1.
More specifically, the mouthpiece 2 includes a body 32. The body 32 is made of a synthetic resin, and is formed of a flat tip portion 11 at one end and a cylindrical portion at the other end. Note that the entire mouthpiece 2 may have a simple cylindrical shape.
The cylindrical portion has an inner diameter that is slightly larger than the outer diameter of the nicotine holder 1 and can slidably receive the end of the nicotine holder 1. A female screw 15 is formed on a part of the inner peripheral surface of the cylindrical portion 32, and a predetermined interval is secured between the female screw 15 and the other end of the body 32.
Therefore, one end portion of the nicotine holder 1 can be inserted into the cylindrical portion of the body 32 by the distance. Thereafter, when the nicotine holder 1 is rotated relative to the body 32 around its axis, the male screw 9 of the outer tube 3 is screwed into the female screw 15, and the mouthpiece 2 is attached to the nicotine holder 1. That is, the other end of the cylindrical portion forms the above-described connection end and also functions as a guide for guiding insertion of the end portion of the nicotine holder 1.
A circular partition wall 13 is fixed substantially in the center of the cylindrical portion 32, and the partition wall 13 is positioned closer to the chip 11 than the female screw 15. A filter 12 is accommodated between the partition wall 13 and the chip 11, and the filter 12 is made of a fiber material. The partition wall 13 functions as a stopper that prevents the filter 12 from being removed from the mouthpiece 2. The filter 12 can be a cigarette filter.
Further, the partition wall 13 has a through hole 17 formed in the center thereof, and the through hole 17 communicates with a hollow push pin 16. The push pin 16 is formed integrally with the partition wall 13 and extends on the axis of the body 32 toward the other end of the body 32. The push pin 16 has an inner diameter slightly smaller than the inner diameter of the inner tube 5 in the Nichicon holder 1 and can be inserted into the inner tube 5.
According to the Nichicon holder 1 and the mouthpiece 2 described above, before the mouthpiece 2 is attached to the nicotine holder 1, the nicotine holder 1, that is, the seal 8 is opened.
More specifically, one end of the nicotine holder 1 is inserted into the mouthpiece 2, and the push pin 16 of the mouthpiece 2 is inserted by pushing the seal 8 at one end of the inner tube 5 along with this insertion. As a result, the inlet 10 is formed at one end (right end) of the inner tube 5 as shown in FIG.
Next, after pulling out the mouthpiece 2 from one end of the nicotine holder 1, the other end of the nicotine holder 1 is inserted into the mouthpiece 2, and the seal 8 at the other end of the inner tube 5 is pushed in the same manner by the push pin 16. At this point, both ends of the nicotine holder 1 are opened.
Thereafter, when the nicotine holder 1 is rotated relative to the mouthpiece 2 around its axis, the outer tube 3 and the mouthpiece 2 are coupled to each other by the engagement of the male screw 9 and the female screw 15 as described above. The nicotine suction pipe shown in FIG. 1 is obtained.
Since the mouthpiece 2 can be used for the opening process of the seal 8 as described above, a separate opening member is not required for opening the seal 8.
Further, as apparent from FIG. 1, when the two suction pipes are assembled from the nicotine holder 1 and the mouthpiece 2, the hollow push pin 16 of the mouthpiece 2 is maintained in a state of being inserted into the inner tube 5, A nicotine suction path from one end of the nicotine holder 1 to the tip 11 of the mouthpiece 2 is formed in the nicotine suction pipe via the push pin 16. That is, the nicotine suction path is formed by the air inlet 10, the internal flow path of the inner tube 5, the internal flow path of the push pin 16, the through hole 17 and the filter 12.
When the suction pipe is sucked by the consumer, the inside of the nicotine holder 1, that is, the inside of the inner tube 5 becomes negative pressure, so that external air is introduced into the inner tube 5 from one end side of the nicotine holder 1. At the same time, vaporization of Nichicon from the nicotine solution in the liquid absorbent material 4 into the inner tube 5 is promoted.
Accordingly, the air introduced into the inner tube 5 takes in the vaporized nicotine, and the vaporized nicotine is sent together with the introduction air into the consumer's mouth through the nicotine suction route and is consumed by the consumer.
Since only the filter 12 exists in the nicotine suction path of the suction pipe, the suction resistance of the suction pipe is very small.
Further, even if the nicotine solution leaks into the inner tube 5, the leaked Nichicon solution is absorbed by the filter 12 in the mouthpiece 2, and the nicotine solution does not flow into the consumer's mouth.
The outer tube 3 of the nicotine holder 1, the inner tube 5 and the body 32 of the mouthpiece 2 are each formed from a synthetic resin. As the synthetic resin, a biodegradable resin such as polylactic acid is preferable.
The nicotine holder 1 of the second embodiment of FIG. 3 does not have the inner tube 5 but has a cylindrical liquid absorbent material 4. In this case, the liquid absorbent material 4 has an outer diameter substantially equal to the inner diameter of the outer tube 3. A plurality of axial passages 18 are formed in the liquid absorbent 4, and the axial passages 18 extend through the liquid absorbent 4. As shown in FIG. 4, a plurality of ribs 19 are formed on the inner peripheral surface of the outer tube 3. These ribs 19 are arranged at intervals in the circumferential direction of the outer tube 3 and extend in the axial direction of the outer tube 3. When the liquid absorbent material 4 is press-fitted into the outer tube 3, the outer peripheral surface of the liquid absorbent material 4 is partially deformed by the ribs 19. Therefore, as viewed in the circumferential direction of the outer tube 3, a gap is secured between the outer tube 3 and the liquid absorbent 4 on both sides of the rib 19. These gaps also form a plurality of axial passages 20 on the outside of the liquid absorbent material 4.
The mouthpiece 2 in FIG. 3 does not have the hollow push pin 16, and in this case, the through hole 17 of the partition wall 13 has a larger diameter than the through hole 17 in FIGS. 1 and 2. Further, the mouthpiece 2 is detachably attached to one end of the nicotine holder 1 by a mere insertion type rather than a screw-in type.
Furthermore, the other end of the nicotine holder 1, that is, the outer tube 3 has an end wall 22, and an inlet 21 is formed at the center of the end wall 22. Since such an end wall 22 increases the adhesion area to the seal 8, the sealing performance on the end wall 22 side is improved.
As shown in FIG. 5, a plurality of protrusions, that is, spacers 23 are formed on the inner peripheral surface of the other end portion of the outer tube 3. These spacers 23 are arranged at intervals in the circumferential direction of the outer tube 3, and prevent the liquid absorbent 4 from moving toward the end wall 22. Therefore, a chamber 24 having a predetermined volume is reliably ensured between the end wall 22 and the liquid absorbent material 4.
The suction pipe of FIG. 3 is assembled by attaching the mouthpiece 2 to one end of the nicotine holder 1 after the seals 8 are removed from both ends of the nicotine holder 1.
When the suction pipe of FIG. 3 is sucked, both the axial passage 18 in the liquid absorbent 4 and the axial passage 20 outside the liquid absorbent 4 become negative pressure, and the nicotine solution in the liquid absorbent 4 The vaporization of nicotine into the axial passages 16, 20 is promoted.
Further, the negative pressure in the axial passages 18 and 20 causes external air to be introduced into the chamber 24 from the inlet 21, and the introduced air passes from the chamber 24 to the axial passages 18 and 20 and one end of the outer tube 3. Flows through the recess 30 and the mouthpiece 2, that is, its filter 12. Therefore, vaporized nicotine is sent into the consumer's mouth along with the introduced air.
The nicotine holder 1 according to the third embodiment shown in FIG. 6 includes a large number of liquid absorbing particles 34 instead of the liquid absorbing material 4 described above. These liquid absorbent particles 34 are filled in the transparent outer tube 3. The gap between the liquid absorbent particles 34 and the gap between the inner peripheral surface of the outer tube 3 and the liquid absorbent particles 34 form nicotine suction paths 27 and 28 in the outer tube 3.
The outer tube 3 has end walls 22 at both ends, and a plurality of openings 36 are formed in the end walls 22. These openings 36 are sufficiently smaller than the diameter of the liquid absorbent 34, and the liquid absorbent 34 is not discharged from the outer tube 3 through the openings 36.
The liquid absorbent particles 34 are porous spheres and have a large number of micropores. These micropores are filled with a nicotine solution. Although the diameter of the liquid absorption particle 34 is not specifically limited, For example, it is preferable that it is 0.5-2 mm. Moreover, all the liquid absorption grains 34 may have the same diameter, or may be a mixture of grains having different diameters.
Specifically, the liquid absorbent particles 34 are made of silica gel (for example, CARiACT (registered trademark) manufactured and sold by Fuji Silysia Chemical Ltd.), activated carbon, zeolite, porous ceramic mainly composed of silica gel, or porous high Formed from molecular polymers. However, in order to form micropores of a desired size in the liquid absorbent particles 34, the liquid absorbent particles 34 are preferably formed from silica gel. In this case, if the liquid absorbent particles 34 have micropores having an average diameter of 0.1 μm or more, in other words, the total opening area of the micropores in the liquid absorbent material 34 per 1 g is about 30 m 2 or more. If so, the liquid absorbent particles 34 can hold a sufficient amount of the nicotine solution, and can sufficiently vaporize the nicotine from the nicotine solution (extraction solution).
Further, the nicotine solution absorbed in the liquid absorbent particles 34 is also colored as described above. In this case, a food additive that can be vaporized is used as the coloring agent in the same manner as nicotine.
The nicotine holder 1 of FIG. 6 also has seals 8 that close the openings 36 at both ends thereof, and these seals 8 are removed before the nicotine holder 1 is used. Thereafter, the mouthpiece 2 is attached to one end of the nicotine holder 1 and the suction pipe is assembled.
When such a suction pipe is sucked, the nicotine suction paths 27 and 28 in the outer tube 3 become negative pressure, and vaporization of nicotine from the nicotine solution in the liquid absorbent particles 34 into the nicotine suction paths 27 and 28 occurs. Promoted. The vaporized nicotine flows along with the air introduced from the opening 36 at the other end of the outer tube 3 through the nicotine suction paths 27 and 28, and is sent into the mouth of the consumer through the filter 12 of the mouthpiece 2.
When the suction pipe is repeatedly sucked and nicotine in the nicotine solution is consumed, the liquid absorbent particles 34 turn white. Since the outer tube 3 is transparent or colored and translucent, the consumer can visually recognize the change in the color of the liquid absorbent particles 34 through the outer tube 3, and the remaining amount of nicotine in the nicotine solution, that is, consumption of the nicotine holder 1 Limits can be easily checked.
Specifically, when suction of the suction pipe is repeated 30 to 50 times, the liquid absorbing particles 34 in the outer tube 3, that is, silica gel particles, are colored from the end side of the outer tube 3 serving as the outside air introduction side. It fades and changes to the original white color of silica gel. That is, since the liquid absorbent particles 34 located on the outside air introduction side are constantly exposed to fresh air, vaporization of nicotine in the nicotine liquid is promoted more than on the mouthpiece 2 side. As a result, the liquid absorbent particles 34, that is, the outer tube 3 are gradually whitened from the outside air introduction end side toward the mouthpiece 2.
The nicotine holder 1 of the fourth embodiment of FIG. 7 is provided with a heat generating sheet 38 which is wound around the outer peripheral surface of the outer tube 3 except for one end of the outer tube 3 inserted into the mouthpiece 2. It is attached. The heat generating sheet 38 generates heat using, for example, an oxidation reaction, and the outer surface of the heat generating sheet 38 is covered with an outside air blocking film 40 when the nicotine holder 1 is not used.
According to the nicotine holder 1 described above, when the outside air blocking film 40 is peeled off from the heat generating sheet 38, the heat generation from the heat generating sheet 38 promotes the vaporization of nicotine in the outer tube 3, and the consumer per unit time. The amount of nicotine consumed can be increased.
The nicotine holder 1 of FIGS. 1 to 7 described above is combined with the mouthpiece 2 to form a nicotine suction pipe when in use. However, the nicotine holder 1 and the mouthpiece 2 may be integrally coupled in advance as a suction pipe. In this case, in order to prevent nicotine from evaporating from the nicotine holder 1, the tip opening of the mouthpiece 2 and the outer end of the nicotine holder 1 are both closed by a seal 8 as shown by a two-dot chain line in FIG. ing.
Further, if the suction pipe or the entire nicotine holder is film-wrapped, the seal 8 is unnecessary.
