Abstract
(EN)
A measuring canister (11) comprising a container (12) and a cover (40) for storing particulate materials, and for dispensing a portion of the particulate material selected by the user. The interior of the container (12) having an open top (14) is divided into a storage compartment (30) and a measuring dispensing compartment (32) by a partition (26) having a notch (28). A generally planar flap (60) is hinged to the cover (40) having a dispensing orifice (46) proximate to the measuring compartment (32), with the cover (40) removably attached to the container (12). The flap (60) is capable of moving between a first position where the dispensing orifice (46) is closed and particulate material present in the storage compartment (30) may pass from the storage compartment (30) into the measuring compartment (32) as the present invention is tilted, and a second position where the dispensing orifice (46) is open and the notch (28) is closed, so that particulate material may be dispensed from the measuring compartment (32) through thedispensing orifice (46).

(FR)
L'invention concerne une boîte doseuse (11) constituée d'un récipient (12) et d'un couvercle (40). Cette boîte est destinée à recevoir un produit particulaire et elle permet de fournir une dose du produit particulaire choisie par l'utilisateur. L'intérieur du récipient (12) ayant un haut ouvert (14) est divisé en un compartiment de réserve (30) et en un compartiment de mesure/dosage (32) par une cloison (26) ayant une encoche (28). Un volet sensiblement plat (60) est fixé par une charnière au couvercle (40) ayant une ouverture de dosage (46) près du compartiment de mesure (32). Le couvercle (40) est fixé au récipient (12) d'une manière amovible. Le volet (60) peut se déplacer entre une première position où l'orifice de dosage (46) est fermé et le produit particulaire présent dans le compartiment de réserve (30) peut passer du compartiment de réserve (30) dans le compartiment de mesure (32) lorsque la boîte est inclinée, et une seconde position où l'orifice de dosage (46) est ouvert et l'encoche (28) est fermée, de sorte que le produit particulaire peut être versé à partir du compartiment de mesure (32) par l'orifice de dosage (46).
