Title (DE) GAS- UND FLÜSSIGKEITSDICHTER VERSCHLUSS FÜR EINEN BEHÄLTER
(EN) GAS-TIGHT AND LIQUID-TIGHT CLOSURE FOR A CONTAINER
(FR) OBTURATEUR ETANCHE AUX GAZ ET AUX LIQUIDES, DESTINE A UN RECIPIENT
Abstract:
(DE) Um für innendruckbeauf schlagte Behälter einen reversiblen Verschluss bereitzustellen wird erfindungsgemäß eine Verschluss einrichtung (200) mit einem verformbaren, dehnfähigen, sich flächig erstreckenden Deckel (205) vorgeschlagen, welcher in zumindest zwei Betriebsstellungen bringbar ist, wobei der Deckel in einer ersten Betriebsstellung zur Öffnung des Behälters ausgerichtet ist und in einer zweiten Betriebsstellung mit einem umfänglichen Randabschnitt (222) die Öffnung des Behälters vollumfänglich hinterschneidet, so dass der hinterschneidende Bereich (33) am Deckel und der hinterschnittene Bereich am Behälter komplementäre Dichtflächen zum Gas- und Flüssigkeits dichten Verschließen der Öffnung bilden. Die Verschlusseinrich tung weist ferner ein betätigbares Mittel (260) zum Aufbringen einer Kraft auf den Deckel zum derartigen Verformen des De ckels, dass dieser von einer der beiden Betriebsstellungen in die andere Betriebsstellung verformbar ist.
(EN) The aim of the invention is to create a reversible closure for containers that are impinged upon by an internal pressure. Said aim is achieved by a closure mechanism (200) comprising a moldable, expandable, planarly extending cover (205) which can be brought into at least two operating positions. The cover is configured for opening the container in a first operating position while undercutting the entire circumference of the opening of the container by means of a circumferential edge area (222) in a second operating position such that the undercutting zone (33) forms a sealing area on the cover and the undercut zone forms a complementary sealing area on the container in order to close the opening in a gas-tight and liquid-tight manner. The inventive closure mechanism further comprises an actuatable means (260) for applying a force to the cover so as to mold the cover in such a way that the same can be shaped from one of the two operating positions into the other operating position.
(FR) Afin de donner à un récipient soumis à une pression interne, un obturateur réversible, l'invention a pour objet un dispositif de fermeture (200) comprenant un couvercle (205) plan qui peut se déformer et se dilater, et qui peut être mis dans au moins deux positions de fonctionnement, le couvercle étant orienté vers l'ouverture du récipient dans une première position de fonctionnement, et formant avec un rebord périphérique (222) un système de dépouille / contre-dépouille sur toute la périphérie de l'ouverture du récipient, dans une seconde position de fonctionnement, de sorte que la zone de dépouille (33) sur le couvercle et la zone de contre-dépouille sur le récipient, forment des surfaces d'étanchéité complémentaires qui permettent à l'ouverture d'être refermée de façon étanche aux gaz et aux liquides. Le dispositif de fermeture présente en outre un système (260) qui peut être actionné et sert à appliquer une force sur le couvercle afin de le déformer de sorte qu'il peut passer de l'une des positions de fonctionnement à l'autre.
