Title
(EN) DISPENSER AND REFILL UNIT
(FR) DISTRIBUTEUR ET UNITÉ DE RECHARGE
Abstract
(EN)
A dispenser comprising a base unit (2) with an actuation mechanism for dispensing liquid and a refill unit (1) insertible into the base unit (2) in an inverted configuration with its outlet lowermost for the supply of liquid to the base unit (2), the refill unit (1) comprising an annular wall (30) projecting into the refill unit (1) and defining an outlet from the refill unit (1), the annular wall (30) being closable at its innermost end by a valve element (33) biased onto the annular wall 30), the base unit (2) comprising a hollow spigot (11) and an annular seal (14) surrounding and spaced from the top of the spigot (11) whereby insertion of the refill unit (1) into the base unit (2) causes the spigot (11) to enter the annular wall (30) and to lift the valve element (33) from the annular wall (30) to define a flow path from the refill unit (1), through at least one cut-out portion formed in the top of the spigot (11) and/or the bottom of the valve element (33) and down the hollow spigot (11), and the annular seal (14) to seal between the spigot (11) and the annular wall (30).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un distributeur qui comprend une unité de base (2) munie d'un mécanisme d'actionnement pour distribuer un liquide et une unité de recharge (1) qui peut être insérée dans l'unité de base (2) selon une configuration inversée, sa sortie étant placée tout en bas, pour distribuer un liquide dans l'unité de base (2). L'unité de recharge (1) comprend une paroi annulaire (30) qui est en saillie à l'intérieur et qui définit une sortie de l'unité de recharge (1), la paroi annulaire (30) pouvant être fermée à son extrémité intérieure, par un élément soupape (33) poussé contre la paroi annulaire (30). L'unité de base (2) comprend un bout mâle creux (11) et un joint annulaire (14) qui entoure la partie supérieure du bout mâle (11) et qui est espacé de celle-ci. Selon l'invention, une insertion de l'unité de recharge (1) dans l'unité de base (2) amène le bout mâle (11) à entrer dans la paroi annulaire (30) et à soulever l'élément soupape (33) de ladite paroi (30) pour définir une voie d'écoulement à partir de l'unité de recharge (1), à travers au moins une partie découpée formée dans la partie supérieure du bout mâle (11) et/ou dans la partie inférieure de l'élément soupape (33), et vers le bas à travers le bout mâle creux (11), et le joint annulaire (14) à créer une obturation étanche entre le bout mâle (11) et la paroi annulaire (30).
