Title (EN) MULTI-COMPARTMENT CONTAINER FOR PROPORTIONAL DISPENSING OF A PLURALITY OF LIQUIDS
(FR) RESERVOIR MULTI-COMPARTIMENTE POUR LA DISTRIBUTION PROPORTIONNELLE DE PLUSIEURS TYPES DE LIQUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a container for successively dispensing substantially uniform volumes of a plurality of liquid ingredients such that the liquids are simultaneously dispensed in a desired proportion to form a mixture. The problem associated with tiltable trap chamber dispensers is their inability to proportionally dispense different liquids without cross contamination. The container has a plurality of separate compartments (12); each compartment (12) being adapted to house a different liquid ingredient. Each compartment has a tubular metering device (10) located therein. The metering device dispenses a previously metered volume and meters a second volume by controlling the venting of air within the compartment each time the container is tilted and uprighted as in a normal dispensing operation. A continuous lip (23) surrounds the dispensing opening of each metering device. The continuous lip (23) prevents a liquid ingredient from entering the dispensing opening of another liquid ingredient compartment (12) and contaminating that compartment.
(FR) L'invention se rapporte à un réservoir de distribution successive de volumes sensiblement uniformes de plusieurs types d'ingrédients liquides, pour que les liquides soient déversés simultanément selon la proportion souhaitée pour former un mélange. Le problème soulevé par les distributeurs compartimentés basculables consiste en leur impossibilité de déverser proportionnellement des liquides différents sans qu'il y ait contact entre eux. Le réservoir possède plusieurs compartiments séparés (12); chaque compartiment (12) étant adapté pour recevoir un ingrédient liquide différent. Chaque compartiment possède un dispositif de dosage tubulaire (10). Le dispositif de dosage distribue un volume préalablement dosé et dose un deuxième volume en régulant l'élimination de l'air à l'intérieur du compartiment chaque fois que le réservoir est incliné et redressé comme en fonctionnement de distribution normal. Un rebord (23) sans interruption entoure l'orifice de distribution de chaque dispositif de dosage. Le rebord (23) sans interruption empêche l'entrée d'un ingrédient liquide dans l'orifice de distribution d'un autre compartiment (12) contenant un ingrédient liquide, ainsi que son contact avec ce compartiment.
