Title
(EN) CAP AND DUST COVER FOR AN ANTISEPTIC SOAP DISPENSER
(FR) COUVERCLE ET CAPUCHON ANTI-POUSSIERE POUR DISTRIBUTEUR DE SAVON ANTISEPTIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A cap (18, 120) and a thrust washer (62, 128) seal a flexible silicone dispensing tube (10, 118) to a neck (20, 114) of a container (12, 116) which holds a fluid to be dispensed. The thrust washer is shaped to inhibit contact between a lip (50, 110) of the dispensing tube and the interior of the cap so that the soft material of the dispensing tube is not damaged when the cap is screwed on to the neck of the container. The thrust washer slides on the cap as the cap is screwed on to limit sliding movement relative to the dispensing tube. A dust cover (24, 138) protects the dispensing tube during shipment and storage. The dust cover is attached to the cap by a frangible portion (66) which is broken prior to dispensing the cleaning fluid. A lower projecting ring (86, 134) on the thrust washer prevents the dust cover from compressing and damaging the lip of the dispensing tube.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un couvercle (18, 120) et une rondelle de butée (62, 128) formant un joint hermétique entre un tube (10, 118) souple distributeur de silicone et le col (20, 114) d'un contenant (12, 116) qui retient un fluide à distribuer. La rondelle de butée est formée de façon à empêcher un contact entre un rebord (50, 110) du tube distributeur et l'intérieur du couvercle, de sorte que la matière souple du tube distributeur ne s'endommage pas lorsqu'on visse le couvercle sur le col du contenant. La rondelle de butée glisse sur le couvercle lorsqu'on le visse de façon à limiter le glissement du couvercle par rapport au tube distributeur. Un capuchon anti-poussière (24, 138) protège le tube distributeur pendant le transport et le stockage. Le capuchon anti-poussière est fixé au couvercle par une partie cassable (66) qui se rompt avant distribution du fluide nettoyant. Un anneau saillant inférieur (86, 134) situé sur la rondelle de butée empêche le capuchon anti-poussière de comprimer et d'endommager le rebord du tube distributeur.
