Title
(DE) FASSVERSCHLUSS MIT INTEGRIERTEM ENTLÜFTUNGSSYSTEM
(EN) KEG CLOSURE WITH INTEGRATED VENTING SYSTEM
(FR) FERMETURE DE TONNELET DOTÉ D'UN SYSTÈME D'AÉRATION INTÉGRÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A closure (1) for a beverage keg (90) is provided, the closure (1) comprising an inlet for admitting a pressurised gas into a headspace of the beverage keg (90) and a valve housing (20) defining at least a portion of the closure (1). The valve housing (20) has a housing wall (21) that defines at least a portion of the valve housing (20). The closure (1) is provided with a barrier (29), separate from the inlet, that is integrally formed with the housing wall (21) and configured to seal the closure (1) such that the closure (1) is able to retain the pressurised gas within the keg (90) in an unvented configuration. The barrier thickness is configured such that the barrier (29) ruptures by internal pressure from within the keg (90) in order to switch the closure (1) into a vented configuration in which fluid communication between the headspace of the keg (90) and an exterior of the closure (1) is possible, through the ruptured barrier (29).

(FR)
L'invention concerne une fermeture (1) pour un tonnelet de boisson (90), la fermeture (1) comprenant une entrée servant à admettre un gaz sous pression dans un vide du tonnelet de boisson (90) et un logement (20) de valve délimitant au moins une partie de la fermeture (1). Le logement (20) de valve présente une paroi (21) de logement qui délimite au moins une partie du logement (20) de valve. La fermeture (1) est pourvue d'une barrière (29), séparée de l'entrée, qui est formée d'un seul tenant avec la paroi (21) de logement et conçue pour rendre étanche la fermeture (1) de telle sorte que la fermeture (1) puisse retenir le gaz sous pression à l'intérieur du tonnelet (90) dans une configuration non aérée. L'épaisseur de barrière est conçue de telle sorte que la barrière (29) se rompe sous l'effet de la pression interne à l'intérieur du tonnelet (90) afin de commuter la fermeture (1) dans une configuration aérée dans laquelle s'établit une communication fluidique entre le vide du tonnelet (90) et un extérieur de la fermeture (1), par la barrière rompue (29).
