Abstract

A drop-impact-resistant device for the transport and distribution of a liquid is composed of a liner (2) comprising a double wall (4, 5; 3, 6). The walls are made of a flexible material, for example from polyethylene/polyamide, creating at least one closed outer space (7, 8) surrounding said liner. Said space has means to be filled with a gas. The liner comprises means for filling it with a liquid and for keeping said liquid inside it.

Description

Device resistant to shocks due to a fall, for transporting and dispensing liquid, especially water.

The present invention relates to a device resistant to shocks due to falling to transportation and dispensing of liquid, particularly water.

During natural disasters, such as earthquakes or floods, very often the victims can only be reached by air, including by helicopter or plane. This mode of action, it poses no problem for solids, which can be dropped, poses serious problems regarding liquids, including water. Indeed, when the parachute packaging used poor resistance to shocks. Moreover, in certain circumstances the helicopter can not land, because it would be beset by disaster and could be damaged. The containers or other packaging should be discarded from a certain height, usually six to ten meters.

There are several known shockproof packaging for solids. These packages are constituted by a pouch having a double wall defining an enclosed space surrounding said bag. The object to be protected is disposed within the pouch and the enclosed space is filled with pressurized gas, in particular air, in order to create a damping cushion. The following documents CH 686 246, US 4,874,093, US 7,000,767 disclose such packages.

Also known, including US 5833069, inflatable packaging for fragile items such as bottles or the like, to protect against shocks during transport.

Also known receptacles made of flexible material for containing liquids. This kind of containers can withstand relatively low impact, but usually they are broken during a fall because the liquid they contain is incompressible. Indeed, the liquid during the fall creates or causes a voltage in the envelope causing a tear.

All of these packages or containers are designed for damping shocks of the solids, not to break a fall.

The invention aims to provide a device resistant to shocks due to a fall, for transporting and dispensing liquid, especially water. The device to withstand a drop of at least six to ten meters. Furthermore, the device should be cheap, as it will be used once.

These objects are achieved with a device resistant to shocks due to a fall, for the transport and distribution of liquid according to the invention defined in claim 1.

The owner had the idea to combine a flexible envelope for the liquid with an air cushion to absorb and absorb the impact of a fall.

The invention will be better understood and its features will become more apparent from reading the description of embodiments, given by way of example to the drawings in which:

1 schematically shows a perspective view of a first embodiment,

2 shows an AA sectional view of the device shown in Figure 1,

3 schematically shows a perspective view of a second embodiment of the device according to the invention;

Figure 4 shows a BB sectional view of the second embodiment of the device shown in Figure 3. The device shown in Figures 1 and 2 comprises a pouch 2 having walls 3 and 4, that when the pouch contains no liquid are in contact, but when the bag is filled with a liquid as shown, define a substantially circular cylinder. The walls 3 and 4 define on their outer face to the pocket 2 with the walls 5 and 6 two spaces 7 and 8 filled with a gas, for example air. The spaces 7 and 8 may be made communicating so as to be filled with air by a single valve 15. There is provided a second valve 16 connected to the bag 2 through a conduit passing through the space 7 and 8, so to be able to introduce a liquid into the bag 2

The device is designed, in the embodiment shown in Figure 1, with four plastic films 3, 4, 5 and 6, for example polyethylene / polyamide. We will first thermo longitudinal welds 9 and 10, as well as thermo transverse welds 17 so as to form the pocket 2. It will set in one of the walls 3 and 4 a valve 16 for introducing a liquid into the pocket 2. the details of the valve 16 are not shown since such a valve is known to those skilled in the art, including US patent 5711691. Then we carry out the heat welds 11, 12, 13 and 14 creating a double wall of the bag and defining two spaces 7 and 8 surrounding the pocket 2. the space 7 and 8 communicate with each other by openings, not shown, so as to fill the spaces 7 and 8 by a single valve15 fixed in the wall 5. the spaces 7 and 8, in another embodiment, do not communicate with each other and there are provided two valves, one for each of the gaps 7 and 8.

In another variant, shown in Figures 3 and 4, there is provided a plurality of independent spaces in the form of tubes 41 filled with air, each having a valve 38, to ensure a damping even if one of the spaces 41 bursts.

Each space 41 has four connecting parts, an upper part 42, a bottom 43 and two end portions 35 and 37 surrounding a pocket 40 (see Figure 4). All parts constituting a space 41 have a substantially circular section.

The device of this second embodiment is formed with two sheets 33 and 44 of plastic material, eg polyethylene / polyamide. We will have two sheets one over the other, and we will do the welds 43, which define large pipes. Then we will welds 47, so as not to completely separate the parts 42, 35, 37 and 43, the air introduced into one of the parties will go in the other three portions. Then a valve 38 is placed in each part. It will collapse portions 42 on the part 43 and welding the one done 36 (see Figure 4) so ​​as to form the pocket 40. It will introduce a duct 31 communicating with the bag 40 and having a valve. Finally, it will make a transverse weld providing a transverse tube 39 communicating with every part 41. Said transverse tube 39 having a valve 32 for introducing a gas, for example air in the spaces 42, 35, 37 and 43. it is also possible to realize the device with four plastic sheets.

When using a device according to the invention, first fill the pocket 2 or 40 with a liquid, for example water, and then inflate the spaces 7 and 8 or 42, 35, 37, 43 with air. Preferably, the bag 2 or 40 is provided to receive between 2 and 3 liters of liquid.
