Title (EN) SELF-SEALING DISPENSING TAP FOR FLEXIBLE PACKAGES
(FR) CANULE AUTOREFERMABLE POUR RECIPIENTS SOUPLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed is a self-sealing dispensing tap for use on flexible packages. The tap includes a piercing end configured for piercing the wall of a flexible container (100), and a flexible member (40) that rides along the tap as it is inserted into the container and expands once installed so as to prevent its withdrawal from the container. A clamping device (20) is provided on the outside of the container which draws the flexible member against the interior wall of the container so as to provide a barrier preventing product within the container, bacteria, or oxygen from inadvertently passing between the interior and exterior of the container.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une canule autorefermable comportant une pointe de perçage de la paroi d'un récipient souple (100), et un élément flexible (40) qui coulisse le long de la canule pendant son insertion dans le récipient et se dilate une fois en place pour empêcher qu'elle ne se détache de l'emballage. Un dispositif d'accrochage (20) placé à l'extérieur du récipient et qui presse l'élément flexible contre la paroi intérieure du récipient forme une barrière empêchant la fuite du produit contenu dans le récipient, et la pénétration dans le récipient par inadvertance de bactéries ou d'oxygène.
