Title
(EN) SHIELD FOR BOTTLE AND METHOD
(FR) MANCHON DE PROTECTION POUR BOUTEILLE ET PROCEDE
Abstract
(EN)
A disposable sleeve (20) that can be applied to a water bottle (10) before leaving the filling source and heat-shrunk take the configuration of the upper portion of the bottle including the cap and shoulder and anchor the same to the bottle. Optionally, the cover which has a neck, shoulder and body portion can be provided with a removal tab. Important to the invention, however, is the securing of the sleeve to the bottle in an intimate skin-to-skin relationship which thereby shields the upper portion of the bottle from contamination wherever it may be prior to use. In accordance with the method, the sleeve heat-shrunk to the bottle and is removed prior to emptying the bottle. The bottle is then uncapped and secured to the cooler. The sleeve should not be allowed to touch any portion of the bottle or cooler after its removal.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un manchon jetable (20) susceptible d'être appliqué à une bouteille d'eau (10), avant que celle-ci ne quitte la source de remplissage. Il s'agit d'un manchon appliqué par thrermorétrécissement qui prend la configuration de la partie supérieure de la bouteille, y compris le bouchon et l'épaule, maintenant le bouchon fixé sur la bouteille. Eventuellement, ce manchon comporte un col, une épaule et un corps, et il peut être muni d'une patte d'extraction. Néanmoins, l'important est de fixer le manchon sur la bouteille, en contact étroit, ce qui permet de protéger la partie supérieure de la bouteille contre toute contamination avant utilisation. Le procédé consiste à appliquer le manchon par thermorétrécissement, et à l'ôter avant d'utiliser le contenu de la bouteille. La bouteille est ensuite débouchée et fixée au dispositif de réfrigération. Le manchon ne doit toucher aucune partie de la bouteille ou du dispositif de réfrigération après avoir été ôté.
