Description

Closure having a chamber and set of components therefor

The present invention relates to a closure for a first medium bevorratendes container having a chamber for storing a second medium. a second medium forming drug can for example be filled into the chamber, which according to the invention using the

The closure may be delivered in a predetermined amount into the container in which, for example, water is the first medium. The invention further relates to a kit of parts for producing a closure according to the invention.

The DE 88 14 315 Ul shows a mixing device for adding a fluid additive to a color that is located in a closed container. The mixing device includes a closed capsule in which the flowable additive is stored. The additive is added to the container by the internal volume of the chamber is reduced.

WO 2009/031167 Al shows a closure having a chamber for storing a miscible component. The chamber is initially sealed at its underside by a cover. To open the lid of the closure to be rotated, whereby a tubular part of the chamber is shifted downwards, and forces the cover to unfold.

From US 4,982,875, a closure with a chamber for storing a medium other is known. The chamber is closed on its underside by a cover, which is seated on a tubular portion of the chamber. To open the chamber, a cap of the closure is to be rotated, whereby the tubular shaped member is displaced and the lid is forced to unfold.

The US 2008/0223740 Al shows a closure cap having a tubular extension on its inner surface which forms a chamber for storing a medium other. The tubular extension is closed by a attached to the container opening sealing element. If the closure cap is unscrewed from the sealed container, the seal element remains in the container, so that it the tubular

releases approach and stockpiled there medium can escape into the interior of the container.

The DE 85 02 008 Ul shows a closure cap for Zweikompo ¬ nentenpackungen having an inner container for receiving a concentrate. A closure cap bottom of the cap has an extending into a bottle neck collar, which has a collar thread, to which the Innenbehäl ¬ ter can be screwed. The inner wall of the bottle neck includes at least one rotation lock so that upon rotation of the

Cap of the inner vessel abge ¬ screwed from the collar thread is, after which the concentrate can be discharged. A disadvantage of this solution is that the collar thread and the thread on the inner container to a high outlay

require production of the cap.

From WO 92/02434 Al Beverage packages are known which permit the mixing of two components. In

Fig. 7 of WO 92/02434 Al a container is shown, which is closed by a closure cap, to which a tubular chamber is formed for storing a further component. The tubular chamber extends into the interior of the container and is closed by a sealing plug. When removing the cap, the

Closure plug from the tubular chamber, after which the component is located there can emerge. However, it is not shown, can be like the tubular chamber filled and closed when it is in the container. In that regard, the solution shown is not executable. Notwithstanding, there is a disadvantage of this solution is that the tightness of the sealing plug is limited to the tubular chamber. Is to increase the tightness of the

amplified press fit of the sealing plug on the tubular chamber so the chamber can upon removal of the

only open cap with a high effort.

In EP 1582331 Al a closure for a bottle containing a first medium is described. The closure includes an inner tubular portion for receiving a second medium, which is insertable through a top cover with a temporarily sealed raw material inlet. The tubular portion is closed on one side facing the interior of the bottle side by a bottom cover. The lower lid seals the tubular portion via a predetermined tearing line. The cover is at the feeding out of the tube-shaped portion ¬ from the mouth of the bottle by a

open rupture of the predetermined tear line. The serving for closing the tubular portion after opening the cover falls in this range, the bottle, as the intended tear line upon opening of the closure is separated circumferentially.

The object of the present invention is, starting from the prior art is a closure for a first one

To provide medium bevorratendes container having a chamber for processing Bevorra ¬ a second medium, wherein in the first medium may enter bevorratende container no components of the closure after opening the chamber.

The above object is achieved by a closure according to appended claim. 1 The object is further solved by a kit of parts for producing a closure according to the appended independent claim. 8

The closure according to the invention is used for sealing a first medium before rate ligands container. In the container ¬ nis it may, for example, a glass or plastic bottle ¬ act, in which water is stored as the first medium. The water may be for example a first component of a drug solution to be applied or to be mixed a non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverage.

The closure according to the invention comprises a cap for closing a passage opening. The passage opening may be formed directly on the container or in a flange of the closure. In any case, the shutter closes in its entirety an opening of the container.

The passage opening can serve, for example, the output of the stored in the container the first medium or there herzustel ¬ lumbar mixture. The closure according to the invention further comprises a chamber for storing a second medium. In the second medium may be, for example, be a drug in powder form, which is to be dissolved in the first medium. The second medium may also be liquid, for example in the form of a syrup or a spirit drink. The second medium is in the

Stored chamber so that the user can cause a mixing of the first medium and the two ¬ th medium to a chosen by him time through use of the closure according to the invention.

The chamber preferably has a wall which is un- movably in itself, that, moving to each other that they do not

Components such as mutually displaceable tubes has. The chamber is insertable in the passage opening, wherein the chamber is in a sealed condition ready for use in the closure of the passage opening. The chamber is mounted on one of the passage opening is to face side of the closure cap to the closure cap, for example in that it is formed integrally with the closure cap. Furthermore, the chamber side is on its side facing the interior of the container zuzuwen- Denden closed by a cover which is ausgebil ¬ det preferably integral with at least a portion of the chamber. The cover serves to ensure that the chamber can be opened to convey the second medium into the first medium.

According to the invention, the lid closes the chamber via a closed intended tear line, whereby a tight closure of the chamber is ensured by the cover. The lid further comprises an actuating element, with which the lid when leading out of the chamber from the passage opening by a

Tearing the intended tear line is opened. The chamber is especially brought out of the passage opening, when the closure is opened by removing the closure cap. This occurs when the cap is unscrewed or pulled off. In the lead-out of

Chamber from the passage opening, the chamber is partially pulled out of the closure at least where they escape in one direction moves the inside of the container. Here, the forces preferably externally of the chamber arranged actuation element for opening the lid.

The chamber includes a housing fixed to the closure cap and a filling tube lid insert. The lid is formed integrally with the lid insert. The closure cap and the filler tube are preferably formed integrally. The lid insert is mounted on a sealed connection in the fill tube. Here, the lid insert is preferably designed in the form of a stopper for the hollow filling tube. This allows you to

Filling the chamber with the second medium. For this purpose the cap with the attached filling tube is initially screwed onto the flange or an opening of the container. Here, the lid insert is not in the fill tube, so that the filling tube of the chamber may be filled with the second medium. Subsequently, the lid insert is to be mounted in the filler pipe, for example characterized in that the lid insert is pressed into the filling tube. The fastening of the lid insert in the filler pipe, which, for example, a weld,

includes pressing or adhesive bonding, ensures a tight

Compound of the lid insert in the filler pipe, so that the chamber is completely sealed. Since the lid insert is now fixed permanently ¬ way in the fill tube, will open the lid at the predetermined tear line, in use of the closure.

The lid can be pivoted via a hinge with respect to the lid insert. The lid insert, the cover and the

Hinge are integrally formed. A particular advantage of the closure according to the invention is that the chamber is suitable for storing media, which until their use in liquid-tight and preferably shall be hermetically separated from the stockpiled in the containment medium. Nevertheless, by the actuating element on the lid enables easy opening of the lid by tearing of the predetermined tearing line, so that with the inventive closure sealed container

can be opened, for example, with only one hand. The

Intended tear line can be constructed so that it can be torn with a very small force.

The closure according to the invention can fungie- ren as a dispenser, to give for example a powdered drug as two ¬ tes medium in water as a first medium, thereby the waiver is allows to drugs in tablet form.

In a preferred embodiment of the closure according to the invention this also includes a spindle assembly, the operating member is displaced from the chamber through the in rotating the cap with it buildin ¬-saturated chamber to open the lid. The spindle arrangement enables conversion of the rotational movement during opening of the closure cap into a translatory movement which the

whereby the intended tear line is torn up actuator located on the lid against the chamber. With a low torque for opening the closure cap high forces can be generated to open the lid. The invention is not limited to caps, which for

Here, the sealing cap with the second thread to the first thread of the flange can be screwed and unscrewed from these. The first thread and the second thread come while two functions. The first function is to screw the cap onto the flange to seal the closure. The second function is that not only the closure is opened by unscrewing the cap from the flange, but also at the same time the lid of the chamber is opened in order to output the medium from the second chamber into the first medium in the container. The flange can also be an integral

be formed integral part of the container.

The actuating element is preferably formed by a projection by which the cover projects beyond the passage opening in its cross section. In this case, the actuating element is preferably integrally formed with the lid. The projection prevents the lid because it remains transversely to the passage opening in performing the chamber in its orientation through the through-opening in this orientation. The lid is to change its orientation, so that the intended tear line is torn forced by the projection. In the open position of the lid the lid is in an orientation oblique or longitudinal to the passage opening so that the cover with the protrusion may be passed together with the chamber through the passage opening.

The spindle assembly preferably includes a rising

Leading edge which is to face the interior of the container on one side of the passage opening is arranged. The projection upon rotation of the chamber opposite the transit passage opening out on the rising leading edge, so that the rotating movement of the chamber and of the lid into a translational movement of the projection relative to the chamber is converted. The rising leading edge can

The closure is shown in a partially sectioned perspective view. The closure consists of a plastics material and has been ¬ Untitled in an injection molding process gefer.

The closure cap 01 comprises a cylindrical jacket

Apron 03, which is closed on one side by a cover Verschlusskappen- 04th On the inside of the skirt 03 has an internal thread 06 is formed. On the inside of the cap lid 04 is arranged coaxially with the closure cap 01 is a hollow cylindrical chamber 07th The chamber 07 is closed by a lid insert 08th Of the

Lid insert 08 is pressed into the hollow-cylindrical chamber 07 and rigidly connected thereto, so that the chamber 07 there is a tight connection between the lid insert 08 and. In lid insert 08, a lid 09 is formed which is open in the shown state. The lid 09 can be pivoted about a hinge 11 relative to the lid insert 08th The lid insert 08, the cover 09 and the hinge 11 are integrally formed.

The flange 02 includes a nozzle cap 12 and a container neck 13. The flange 02 is a passage opening 14 is formed. The nozzle cap 12 has an outer thread 16 to which the closure cap 01 and screwed with its internal thread 06 this

can be unscrewed. The container neck 13 has a thread 17, with which the flange to be closed on a

Container (not shown) are screwed. Is to face on the side of the container opening 14, a rising leading edge 18 is formed corresponding to a cap 09 formed on the projection 19, which is shown in detail in Fig. 2 and 3. The container stored a first medium, while the chamber

07 is provided for storing a second medium (not shown). In the example shown in Fig. 1 the open state, the second medium is already fallen out of the chamber 07 into the first medium in the container. Consequently, the chamber 07 is already empty in the shown state.

Fig. 2 shows the closure shown in Fig. 1 in a closed state. In this state, the shutter ¬ cap 01 is screwed onto the cap connector 12 of the flange 02. The chamber 07 is through the lid 09

locked. Between the lid 09 and the lid insert a desired tear line is circumferentially 21 (shown in detail in Fig. 8) formed in the form of a material weakening. The verschlos- sene chamber 07 stocked the second medium (not shown). To the skirt 03 of the cap 01, a security ring 22 is arranged that acts as a first opening guarantee. The tamper ring 22 is connected via torn off webs 23 with the skirt 03.
