Title
(EN) WATER BOTTLE WITH DRINKING AND SPRAY MODES
(FR) BOUTEILLE D'EAU AVEC MODES BOISSON ET PULVERISATION
Abstract
(EN)
A liquid dispensing fitment for a liquid container (water bottle) having a mouth adapted to receive a fitment, comprising a skirt member (10) adapted for securement to the mouth of the liquid container, the skirt member (10) has first and second coaxial cylindrical members spaced to define a flow passage therebetween. The first of the cylindrical members (13) has a wall and a spaced detent element (25) on the wall to define closed, spray and drink positions. An actuating member has a liquid exit opening and a depending detent member with coating detent elements on the detent member coating with the spaced element at said closed, spray and drink positions. A spray forming device, such as a swirl cavity with openings for introducing water therein from the flow passage, causes a spray to issue to ambient through a single liquid outlet opening (22). For the drink position the spray forming device is disabled so as to allow a continous liquid stream fluid to flow through the single liquid exit opening.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un bouchon de distribution de liquide pour un récipient de liquide (bouteille d'eau) pourvu d'un col sur lequel vient s'insérer un bouchon. Ce bouchon comporte un rebord (10) conçu pour être fixé au col dudit récipient de liquide, ce rebord (10) présentant un premier et un second éléments cylindriques coaxiaux espacés de manière à définir entre eux un passage d'écoulement. Le premier (13) de ces éléments cylindriques comprend une paroi et un élément de cran espacé (25), placé sur la paroi afin de définir une position fermée, une position pulvérisation, et une position boisson. Un élément d'actionnement présente un orifice de sortie de liquide et un élément de cran solidaire, plusieurs éléments de cran étant prévus sur cet élément de cran de manière à fonctionner conjointement avec ce dernier dans les différentes positions susmentionnées. Un jet est ensuite pulvérisé vers l'extérieur par l'intermédiaire d'un seul orifice de sortie de liquide (22) depuis le dispositif dans lequel ce jet s'est formé, par exemple une cavité de turbulence sur laquelle sont ménagés des orifices permettant d'introduire de l'eau à partir desdits passages d'écoulement. Ce dispositif de pulvérisation ne peut fonctionner en position boisson, ce qui permet à un flux continu de liquide de s'écouler par ledit orifice de sortie de liquide.
