Title
(EN) A METERING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE DOSAGE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a container (10) with a metering device (20) for granular products, especially for granular detergents. This metering device allows to vary the dose dispensed from said container just prior the use of said container. Said metering device comprises a collecting chamber (34) under a dispensing channel (40). By adjusting the height of the bottom end of said dispensing channel from the bottom of said collecting chamber, the quantity of product in said collecting chamber which is able to flow from said collecting chamber through said dispensing channel to the exterior of said container is varied. The collecting chamber is refilled through an adjacent metering chamber (32).
(FR)
Cette invention se rapporte à un récipient (10) pourvu d'un dispositif de dosage (20) pour produits granulaires, en particulier pour détergents granulaires. Ce dispositif de dosage permet de faire varier la dose distribuée du récipient juste avant l'utilisation dudit récipient. Ce dispositif de dosage comprend une chambre collectrice (34) située sous un conduit de distribution (40). En réglant la hauteur du fond de ce conduit de distribution par rapport au fond de la chambre collectrice, on peut faire varier la quantité de produit contenu dans cette chambre collectrice qui peut s'écouler de ladite chambre à travers le conduit de distribution jusqu'à l'extérieur du récipient. On réapprovisionne la chambre collectrice par une chambre de dosage adjacente (32).
