Title
(EN) CLOSURE OR STOPPER FORMS A SURFACE TENSION SEAL
(FR) FERMETURE OU BOUCHON FORMANT UN JOINT SOUS L'EFFET DE LA TENSION SUPERFICIELLE
Abstract
(EN)
A closure or stopper (20) for a container (10) to contain liquid, powder or paste, the container having means to define a first extremely flat annular surface (23), the closure comprising a sealing member (21) defining a second extremely flat surface (22), an annular groove (29) that locates an O-ring (30), and means such as thread (25) to urge the extremely flat surfaces into parallel abutting contact, the extremely flat surfaces adapted to form a surface tension seal when they are urged into parallel abutting contact and means to prevent lateral or shear relative movement. Another form of the closure is the sealing member being a disc (66) that seats on the flat annular sealing surface (67) defined by the top of the neck (12) of a bottle to form a seal, and a metal cap (65) to place the seal under axial load and protects the seal from vibration.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une fermeture ou un bouchon (20) pour un contenant (10) dans lequel se trouve un liquide, une poudre ou un pâte. Ledit contenant présente des moyens servant à définir une première surface annulaire (23) extrêmement plate. Ladite fermeture comprend un élément d'étanchéité (21) définissant une deuxième surface annulaire (22) extrêmement plate, une rainure annulaire (29) qui abrite un joint torique (30), et un moyen, par exemple un filetage (25), pour forcer les surfaces extrêmement plates à venir en contact de manière parallèle, lesdites surfaces extrêmement plates étant conçues pour former un joint sous l'effet de la tension superficielle lorsqu'elles sont forcées à venir en contact de manière parallèle, et un moyen pour empêcher un mouvement relatif latéral ou un mouvement relatif de cisaillement. Dans un autre mode de réalisation, l'élément d'étanchéité est un disque (66) qui prend appui sur la surface d'étanchéité (67) annulaire, plate, définie par la partie supérieure du goulot (12) d'une bouteille, pour former un joint, un capuchon métallique (65) étant utilisé pour exercer une contrainte axiale sur le joint et protéger ce dernier contre des vibrations.
