Description

Device for dispensing granular products

The invention relates to a device for dispensing granular products.

5

Dispensers for the successive release of tablet-shaped or pill-shaped products, such as, for example, sweets, sweets, medicines, pastilles, etc. are already known. An example of a known dispenser is described in the international patent application WO2006 / 116370. The dispenser described in this patent specification comprises a housing in which a storage container for tablet-shaped products is accommodated. The storage container comprises a separate, resilient bottom element that connects to the delivery channel for the tablet-shaped products. The dispensing channel is provided with a dispensing opening at an end remote from the storage container. Because the dispensing channel tapers towards the dispensing opening, wherein the dimensioning of the dispensing channel is such that the tablets can only be transported successively through the dispensing channel, it can be achieved that the tablets can be dispensed successively. The tablets are dispensed by pressing an upper wall of the storage container relative to the surrounding housing, whereby the bottom element and thereby the dispensing channel can be deformed such that the dispensing opening is formed and a single tablet can be dispensed. A drawback of the known dispenser is that only similar tablet-shaped products can be dispensed successively. It has been found that unevenly shaped products, such as, for example, coarse sugar granules, in particular hail sugar or candy cubes, are not suitable for orderly transport in the direction of the dispensing opening. In the event that unequal shaped products were arranged in the storage container, then reliable delivery of these products is generally not possible, because the uneven shaped products often interlock with each other, which prevents dosed delivery of the products through the dispenser, or at least considerably impedes them.

The invention has for its object to provide an improved dispenser with the aid of which also uneven granular products can be dispensed in a dosed manner.

30 2

To this end, the invention provides a device of the type mentioned in the preamble, comprising: at least one storage container for granular products, which storage container is provided with a bottom element for supporting the granular products, and at least one dosing compartment adapted to receive at least one granule, wherein the mutual orientation between the bottom element and the dosing compartment can be changed between an active state, wherein the bottom element connects to the dosing compartment such that displacement of at least one granule supported by the bottom element to the dosing compartment is possible, and a non-operative state wherein the bottom element is spaced apart from the dosing compartment such that displacement of one or more grains supported by the bottom element is not possible. By including the dosing compartment and the bottom element mutually displaceable, in particular slidable, in the device according to the invention as described above, a metered delivery of unevenly shaped granular products can be realized and guaranteed. By first positioning a granular product in the operating condition in the dosing compartment, and then moving the bottom element in a direction away from the dosing element, the granular product can be isolated from other products present in the storage container. Obstruction of the dosing compartment which de facto functions as a dispensing channel 20 can be prevented by first isolating the at least one granular product present in the dosing compartment from other granular products carried by the bottom element, as a result of which a product interlocking in bridges product present in the dosing compartment and an adjacent product supported by the bottom element can be prevented, or at least possibly be undone. After isolation of the granular product, the product can then be released from the device. The dosing compartment can be designed in various ways, and can be arranged for multi-sided enclosure of a granular product. However, it is also conceivable that the dosing compartment comprises only one (second) bottom element. The (first) bottom element of the storage container will then substantially connect to the (second) bottom element of the dosing compartment in the operative condition of the device. Depending on the size of the dosing compartment, the dosing compartment can be arranged for (simultaneous) uptake of one granular product or for 3 multiple granular products. The granular products can be coarse-grained. However, it is also conceivable to have fine-grained products and even powdered products delivered with the aid of the device according to the invention. The device according to the invention is suitable for metered dispensing of both substantially similar products and non-uniform products. Examples of substantially similar products are sweets, sweets, (pill-shaped) medicines, pastilles, bath pearls, et cetera. Examples of substantially unevenly shaped products are coarse sugar grains, coarse (sea) salt grains, sweets, etc. It is to be noted that the dimensioning of the granular products should preferably be such that the products are adapted to be dispensed in a dosed manner with the aid of the device according to the invention.

As stated, it is conceivable for the dosing compartment to only comprise a (second) bottom element. In the operative condition of the device, at least one at least one granular product will then be moved from the storage container to the dosing compartment. In case the dosing compartment is not closed off or otherwise limited, the granular product can be taken out directly from the dosing compartment. However, in order to enable a controlled release of products, it is advantageous if the dosing compartment can be selectively closed. In a preferred embodiment, the dosing compartment is provided with a dispensing opening for the granular products, and the device comprises at least one first closing element for closing the dispensing opening, which first closing element is movable between an opened state, in which the dispensing opening is substantially released, and a closed state in which the dispensing opening is substantially blocked. In this way it can be prevented that undesired (instantaneous) multiple products are delivered by the device in the operating condition of the device. In a particularly preferred embodiment the first closing element is coupled to the bottom element, such that the first closing element is oriented in the closed state in case the bottom element is oriented in the operative state. By coupling the closing element to the bottom element, a synchronous movement of both components, and thus the simultaneous reaching of the active state and the closed state (and vice versa), can relatively easily be guaranteed. The first closing element is preferably coupled to the bottom element in such a way that the first closing element is oriented in the opened state 4 in case the bottom element is oriented in the non-operative state, whereby a metered release of at least one product absorbed in the dosing compartment can take place . In a preferred embodiment the device comprises operating means coupled to the first closing element for operating the first closing element between the opened state and the closed state. The operating means can for instance be formed by an upper wall or top element of the storage container. However, it is also conceivable to use different types of operating means. However, it will generally be important that at least a part of the operating means is positioned in an accessible manner, in order to facilitate the operation for a user.

In order to be able to change the orientation of the bottom element and the dosing compartment, the bottom element and the dosing compartment are formed by mutually separate components, the bottom element not being integrally connected to the dosing compartment. A mutual mechanical coupling between the bottom element and the dosing compartment is, however, conceivable. The bottom element and the dosing compartment are preferably mutually displaceable, in particular along a predefined path. The web can be linear or non-linear, such as, for example, curved or angled. The predefined path can be realized by using guide means along which the bottom element and / or the dosing compartment can be moved, in particular slidable.

The dosing compartment is preferably part of a housing which at least partially surrounds the bottom element. In this way a relatively solid device can be obtained, wherein the bottom element is at least partially accommodated in the housing. In a preferred embodiment, a part of the storage container forms part of the housing. It is conceivable in this connection that, for example, side walls forming part of the storage container form an integral part of the housing. In an alternative embodiment, the storage container is a separate component accommodated for displacement in the housing.

The supply container will generally be made of one or more substantially rigid materials, preferably a polymer or metal. Moreover, the distance between (overlying) walls bounding the storage container will generally also be substantially constant, so that the storage container will have a substantially constant volume during normal use.

In order to enable a relatively simple movement of products from the storage container 5 to the dosing compartment, it is advantageous if the bottom element and a horizontal surface enclose an angle with each other, at least in the operative condition of the device. The inclined orientation of the bottom element will generally be permanent and, although conceivable, will generally not depend on the condition of the bottom element. In order to be able to effect a reliable movement of granular products from the storage container to the dosing compartment, the bottom element and a horizontal surface enclose an angle with each other that is greater than or equal to 5 °. At such an angle of inclination, under the influence of gravity, products will tend to slide in the direction of the dosing compartment, which facilitates the metered delivery of products by the device.

In a preferred embodiment the device comprises a second closing element for blocking a passage from the storage container to the dosing compartment in the non-operative condition of the bottom element. By using the second closing element, it can be prevented that an already insulated granular product (or several simultaneously insulated products) can move back to the storage container, or can remove themselves from the dosing compartment in an improper manner other than via the dispensing opening. The second closing element will be arranged so as to be movable in the device in order to allow transport of one or more granular products from the storage container to the dosing compartment in the active condition of the bottom element. To that end, the second closing element is preferably coupled to an upper wall of the storage container. During displacement of the top wall, and thus the bottom wall, which is usually coupled to the top wall, between the active state and the non-active state, the second closing element can be moved accordingly in order to be able to release or block the passage.

The device preferably comprises biasing means for urging the bottom element to a certain starting position. The bottom element can only be moved to a different position when a (greater) bias is imposed on the biasing means. At rest, the bottom element is preferably urged into the operative condition by the biasing means, as a result of which the dosing compartment can be filled with a product initially included in the storage container, whereby the release of the product for a user can be accelerated. However, in another embodiment it is also conceivable for the bottom element to rest at rest in the non-operative condition by the biasing means in order to be able to preserve the products in the storage container for as long as possible during non-use of the device, which from a hygienic point of view can be advantageous from a point of view. The biasing means preferably comprises at least one spring, in particular a compression spring or a resilient lip.

The device will often only comprise a single dosing compartment. However, in an alternative preferred embodiment, the device comprises a plurality of dosing compartments. In this way, simultaneous, successive, and / or selective delivery of products can be facilitated. The dosing compartments can herein for example be oriented according to a carousel configuration around the storage container. In a special preferred embodiment it is also conceivable that the device comprises several storage containers, wherein each storage container is adapted to be connected to an (own) dosing compartment.

The device according to the invention is intended to be handled. It is also conceivable that the device is arranged to be stationed on a table or other surface, so that the device according to the invention can be designed as a hand device or as a table device.

The invention will be elucidated on the basis of non-limitative exemplary embodiments shown in the following figures. Herein: figures la-1a show different perspective views of a first preferred embodiment of a device according to the invention, figures 2a-2h show different perspective views of a second preferred embodiment of a device according to the invention, figures 3a and 3b show different perspective views of a third preferred embodiment of a device according to the invention, and figures 4a and 4b show different views of a fourth preferred embodiment of a device according to the invention.

Figure la shows a perspective view of a first preferred embodiment of a device 1 according to the invention. The device 1 is adapted to metered individual products 2, in particular granular products. To that end, the device 1 comprises a housing 3 and a storage container 4 partially accommodated in the housing 3 for the granular products. The storage container 4 is slidably accommodated in the housing 3, wherein the storage container 4 is in particular movable between a (rest position (see figures 1a and 1b) and an active state (see figures 1c and 1d). for being able to facilitate a user, the housing 3 is provided with recesses 5a, 5b. In the cross-section shown in figure 1b it is visible that the storage container 4 comprises a bottom element 6 and an upper wall 7. The bottom element 6 is adapted to carry the products 2. regular or non-regularly designed products 2. The housing 3 comprises a partition wall 8 bounding the storage container 4, which partition wall 8 serves as a guide for the storage container 4 during the movement of the storage container 4 between the passive state and the active state. is interrupted and is provided at the location of the interruption 20 with a dosing compartment 9, which dosing compartment 9 is in directed for receiving one granular product 2. As shown in figure 1b, the storage container 4 is forced into the upper state (rest state) by the presence of a compression spring 10 which on the one hand engages the housing 3 and on the other engages the bottom element 6. The bottom element 6 has an inclined orientation, as a result of which the products 2 are inclined to move in the direction of the dosing compartment 9. In the shown condition the dosing compartment 9 is closed by a closing element 11, which closing element 11 is connected to at least the bottom element 6. In at least one product 2 will move from the storage container 4 to the dosing compartment 9 by pressing the storage container 4 relative to the housing 3 (see figures 1c, 1d, and le) it will be accommodated in the dosing compartment 9 product are isolated from the other products present in stock holder 4. Because the upper wall 7 of the storage container 4 is provided with a partition 12, it can be prevented that the product isolated in the dosing compartment 9 will move back into the storage container 4. During the displacement of the storage container 4 in downward direction, the closing element 11 will also move in downward direction such that the product contained in the dosing compartment 9 can remove itself from the dosing compartment 9 and can therefore be dispensed by the device 1. In order to prevent this dispensing to be able to facilitate, the dosing compartment 9 also comprises an inclined bottom element 13.

Figures 2a-2h show different perspective views of a second preferred embodiment of a device 14 according to the invention. The device 14 comprises a housing 15 in which granular products 16 are included. The housing comprises a base structure 17 and a top structure 18 cooperating with the base structure 17. The top structure 18 is urged in a direction away from the base structure 17 by a compression spring 19. The base structure 17 is provided with a conically shaped bottom element 20 adapted to support the products 16. The top structure 18 is provided with a plurality of dosing compartments 21 which are substantially evenly distributed over the peripheral side of the top structure 18. By pressing the top structure 18 against the spring tension in the direction of the basic structure 17 (see figures 2c and 2d) the dosing compartments 21 will be filled with at least one product 16. By subsequently (partially) relieving the top structure 18, the top structure 18 will again orient itself in the starting position (see figures 2e and 2f). In this state, the dosing compartments 21 are still filled with products 16. By subsequently rotating the top structure 18 axially (see Figures 2g and 2h), the dosing compartments 21 can be opened, after which delivery of products 16 included in the dosing compartments 21 is possible.

Figures 3a and 3b show different perspective views of a third preferred embodiment of a device 22 according to the invention. The device 22 comprises a basic structure 23 and a top structure 24 pivotally connected to the basic structure 23. The top structure is provided with a storage container 25 for granular products 26. The storage container 25 is provided with a receiving space 27 for a wall part 28 of the basic structure 23. An upper side of this wall part 28 forms a bottom element 29 of a dosing compartment 30 for receiving a product 26. The storage container 25 is provided with a passage opening 31 for products 26. In an upper state of the top structure 24 at least one product will be positioned 9 in the dosing compartment 30. By subsequently pivoting the top structure 24 in downward direction, the product 26 present in the dosing compartment 30 will be isolated from other products 26 still present in the storage container 25. In this isolated state of the product 26, the passage opening 31 of the top structure 24 can be aligned with the dosing compartment 30, after which release of the isolated product 26 can take place (see figure 3b).

Figures 4a and 4b show different views of a fourth preferred embodiment of a device 32 according to the invention. Figure 4a shows a perspective view of the device 32, wherein the device comprises a basic structure 33 and a top structure 34. The top structure 34 is partly incorporated in the basic structure 33. The top structure 34 is displaceable relative to the basic structure 33 along a helical path (see Figure 4c). The cross-section shown in Figure 4b shows that granular products 36 are arranged in a storage space 35 enclosed by the top structure. The products 36 are thereby supported by a bottom element 37 forming part of the basic structure 33. The top structure is provided with a laterally positioned dosing compartment 38 in which at least one product can be fitted. In the shown (lower) state of the top structure 34, at least one product 36 will move into the dosing compartment 38. Dispensing of the product 36 from the device 32 is prevented in this state because the basic structure 33 shields the dosing compartment 38. By subsequently rotating the top structure 34 relative to the basic structure 33 (see figure 4c), the relevant product 36 can be insulated, and the dosing compartment 38 will no longer be screened, whereby the product 36 can be dispensed (see figure 25d).

It will be clear that the invention is not limited to the exemplary embodiments shown and described here, but that within the scope of the appended claims, countless variants are possible which will be obvious to those skilled in the art.
