Title: FILLER ADAPTER FOR A MULTI-CHAMBERED CONTAINER
Abstract:
A filler adapter assembly (10) adapted for mounting to and filling or dispensing fluids from individual chambers of a multichambered container (18). Assembly (10) includes a filler adapter (11) and a releasable closure (12). Filler adapter (11) has a tubular member (13) with a conical lumen (17) and a base closure end (16) which matingly engages the finish end (28) of container (18). Base end (19) provides plugs (24a-d) for sealing all chambers except a single selected chamber. A small opening (15) in one of the plugs (24d) provides fluid communication between the selected chamber and a conical lumen (17) within filler adapter (11). Releasable closure (12) includes a gasket (25) which provides a leak proof seal between filler adapter (11) and container (18). Fluid may be introduced or removed from selected chamber through conical lumen (17). A vent channel (51) in filler adapter (11) enables the escape of gas during filling and provides an overflow channel for excess fluid to drain from an overfilled chamber.
