Title
(EN) MULTI-CHAMBERED, UNIFORM DISPENSING TUBE
(FR) TUBE DE DISTRIBUTION UNIFORME A CHAMBRES MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN) Disclosed is a multi-chambered tube (10) for containing and dispensing a contents comprised of portions having differing rheology and viscosity characteristics, the tube comprising: (a) a body (20) divided by at least one body divider (22) into at least two body chambers (18,19), each body chamber housing a portion of the contents, the body being sealed at one end by a crimp seal (25) and one end of each body divider being sealed within the crimp seal; (b) a shoulder (30) comprised of a shoulder base (32) and a shoulder nozzle (34), the shoulder base being attached to the body, the shoulder nozzle having a face provided with at least two apertures (16, 17), at least one aperture in communication with each of the body chambers, and the other end of each body divider disposed within the shoulder and being sealed at the face (36) of the shoulder nozzle; (c) a cap (40) comprised of a cap body provided with a dispensing orifice and at least one cap divider (42) that separates the cap body (44) into at least two cap chambers (48, 49), each cap chamber being in communication with one of the body chambers via at least one of the apertures in the face of the shoulder nozzle, and the shoulder nozzle being received within the cap body when the cap and the shoulder are assembled. Further disclosed is a cap and shoulder assembly for use with a multi-chambered tube body.
(FR) L'invention concerne un tube à chambres multiples (10) conçu pour contenir et distribuer un contenu constitué de parties présentant des caractéristiques de rhéologie et de viscosité différentes. Ce tube comprend (a) un corps (20) divisé en au moins deux chambres (18, 19) par au moins un élément de séparation (22). Chacune de ces chambres est destinée à loger une partie du contenu, le corps est fermé à une extrémité par une fermeture étanche formée par pliage et compression (25), et une extrémité de chaque élément de séparation dudit corps est scellée dans ladite fermeture étanche formée par pliage et compression. Le tube comprend également (b) une épaule (30) constituée d'une base (32) et d'une buse (34). La base de cette épaule est fixée au corps du tube, la buse comporte une face pourvue d'au moins deux orifices (16, 17), au moins un de ces orifices communique avec chaque chambre du corps, et l'autre extrémité de l'élément de séparation du corps est disposé dans l'épaule et scellé au niveau de la face (36) de la buse. Le tube comporte en outre (c) un couvercle (40) constitué d'un corps pourvu d'un orifice de distribution et d'au moins un élément de séparation du couvercle (42) conçu pour diviser le corps (44) du couvercle en au moins deux chambres (48, 49). Chaque chambre du couvercle communique avec une des chambres du corps par l'intermédiaire d'au moins un des orifices ménagés dans la face de la buse, et la base de l'épaule est logée à l'intérieur du corps du couvercle lorsque le couvercle et l'épaule sont assemblés. L'invention se rapporte en outre à un ensemble couvercle-épaule destiné à être employé avec un corps de tube à chambres multiples.
