Abstract
(EN)
A closure (1) for a beverage keg (90) is provided, comprising a valve housing (20) and a valve element (30), which is movable with respect to the valve housing (20) inwardly into an open state and outwardly into a closed state. A locking system comprises a locking element (50) that is movable with respect to the valve housing (20) and is capable of holding the valve element (30) in the open state. The locking element (50) comprises a body portion (51) located inside the valve housing (20) and a leg (56) that extends outwardly from the body portion (51) to the exterior of the valve housing (20). The leg (56) comprises an engagement element (57) that is configured to engage a stop formation fixed with respect to the valve housing (20) in order to limit the maximum extent of movement of the locking element (50) in an upward direction relative to the valve housing (20) after beverage has been dispensed from the keg (90).

(FR)
L'invention concerne une fermeture (1) pour un fût de boisson (90), comprenant un logement de robinet (20) et un élément robinet (30) pouvant se déplacer par rapport audit logement (20) vers l'intérieur dans un état ouvert et vers l'extérieur dans un état fermé. Un système de verrouillage comprend un élément de verrouillage (50) mobile par rapport au logement de robinet (20) et apte à maintenir l'élément robinet (30) dans l'état ouvert. L'élément de verrouillage (50) comprend une partie corps (51) située à l'intérieur du logement de robinet (20) et une patte (56) s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir de la partie corps (51) jusqu'à l'extérieur du logement de robinet (20). La patte (56) comprend un élément de mise en prise (57) conçu pour venir en prise avec une formation d'arrêt fixée par rapport au logement de robinet (20) afin de limiter l'étendue maximale du mouvement de l'élément de verrouillage (50) dans une direction vers le haut par rapport audit logement (20) après que la boisson a été distribuée du fût (90).
