Title
(EN) BEVERAGE CLOSURE WITH OPEN/CLOSE SPOUT
(FR) FERMETURE POUR BOISSON COMPRENANT UN GOULOT OUVERT/FERME ET DES SURFACES D'ETANCHEITE PROTEGEES
Abstract
(EN)
A closure (10) for a beverage container includes: (a) a base (16) adapted to be attached to an opening of a liquid container (12), where the base (16) includes a conduit extending therethrough that is adapted to be in fluid communication with liquid contents of the liquid container (12), where the base (16) further includes a substantially tubular spout guide (42) defining at least a portion of the conduit, and where the base (16) further includes an annular deck (44) extending radially inwardly from an inner circumferential surface of the base defining a central orifice (46) in fluid communication with the conduit; and (b) a substantially annular spout (18) mounted to the tubular spout guide (42) for reciprocation at least between an open position and a closed position, the spout (18) including (1) an annular wall (66) and (2) a plug (48) positioned radially within the annular wall (66); at least a substantial portion of the outer circumferential seal surface of the plug (48) is axially recessed or flush with respect to the annular wall (66) of the spout (18).
(FR)
Une fermeture pour un récipient à boisson comprend: (a) une base prévue pour être fixée à une ouverture d'un récipient à liquide, ladite base comprenant un conduit qui la traverse et qui est prévu pour communiquer par le fluide avec le contenu liquide du récipient à liquide. Ladite base comprend également un guide de goulot sensiblement tubulaire définissant au moins une partie du conduit et un pont annulaire s'étendant radialement à l'intérieur depuis une surface circonférentielle interne de la base définissant un orifice central qui communique par le fluide avec le conduit. La fermeture selon l'invention comprend également (b) un goulot sensiblement annulaire installé sur le guide-goulot tubulaire pour effectuer un mouvement alternatif au moins entre une position ouverte et une position fermée, le goulot comprenant (1) une paroi annulaire et (2) un bouchon positionné radialement à l'intérieur de la paroi annulaire; ledit bouchon comportant une surface d'étanchéité circonférentielle externe annulaire qui se loge à l'intérieur, et bouche l'orifice central du pont lorsque le goulot se trouve en position fermée et qui est enlevée du pont de l'orifice central lorsque le goulot se trouve en position ouverte. Au moins une partie substantielle de la surface d'étanchéité externe circonférentielle du bouchon est évidée axialement ou affleurante par rapport à la paroi annulaire du goulot; ladite surface d'étanchéité externe circonférentielle présente soit une forme cylindrique lisse à diamètre sensiblement constant soit une forme de cône tronqué lisse dont le diamètre s'élargit en fonction de la distance qui le sépare de l'extrémité avant.
