Title (EN) METALLIC PRESSURE CONTAINER
(FR) RECIPIENT METALLIQUE CONTENANT UN LIQUIDE SOUS PRESSION
Abstract:
(EN) A container (10) for holding fluid under pressure, particularly suitable as a non-returnable beer keg having a capacity between 20 and 80 litres approximately, comprising a sheet metal cylindrical body (12) and two curved sheet metal ends (18, 21), at least one end including a filling and dispensing opening (23), each end comprising a curved circular central portion, a knuckle radius (19) adjoining the outer periphery of the central portion and a generally cylindrical portion (20) adjoining the knuckle radius. Each end is connected to the body to form the container by a bond (22) formed solely by an organic adhesive interposed between at least the cylindrical portion of each end and a fully circumferentially extending portion of the inside surface of the body. In addition there may be inwardly formed circumferential beads (13, 14) in the body wall to locate and abut the ends. The preferred adhesive is a toughened epoxy type applied in paste or gel form to the joint regions.
(FR) Récipient (10) contenant un liquide sous pression, utilisable notamment comme tonneau de bière jetable ayant une capacité comprise entre environ 20 et 80 litres, et comprenant un coprs cylindrique en tôle (12) et deux extrémités en tôle recourbées (18, 21), l'une au moins des extrémités comportant une ouverture pour le remplissage et l'évacuation (23) du liquide, chacune des extrémités comprenant une partie centrale circulaire en arc, un rayon de carre (19) contigu à la périphérie externe de la partie centrale et une partie généralement cylindrique (20) contiguë audit rayon de carre. Chaque extrémité est reliée au corps, pour former un récipient, par un joint (22) formé exclusivement par un agent d'adhésion organique placé au moins entre la partie cylindrique de chaque extrémité et une partie s'étendant sur toute la circonférence de la surface interne du corps. La paroi du corps peut en outre comprendre des nervures concentriques se prolongeant vers l'intérieur (13, 14) servant à emboîter et caler les extrémités. L'agent d'adhésion préférentiel est un type d'époxy durçi appliqué enpâte ou en gel sur les zones de jointure.
