Title: TAP WITH AUTOMATIC SHUT-OFF FOR BAG-TYPE CONTAINERS
Abstract:
Tap with a neck (1) attached to a plastic bag (3), the body (7) of the tap being closed off at the lower end (9) thereof and having orifices, positioned laterally, for communicating with the inside of the bag, said tap being operated by moving said body (7) axially with respect to the neck (1). The body (7) includes a lateral spout (14) on the upper outer part thereof, a shut-off member (15) inside the body acting opposite the spout, said member forming a single piece with an elastically deformable membrane (18) secured to the free upper end of the body (7), and having a lateral opening (16) which can be positioned facing the spout (14) or otherwise, depending on whether the tap is open or closed. The result is a tap with automatic shut-off comprising just three components, including the neck, achieving a considerable cost saving while also improving performance in terms of safety and sealing vis-à-vis the entry of oxygen and gases and the loss of flavour.
