Title (EN) JAR SEALING AND UNSEALING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE FERMETURE HERMÉTIQUE ET D'OUVERTURE DE BOCAL
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for vacuum-sealing a lid onto a jar includes a cap skirt joined to a cap. The cap and cap skirt are formed with internal threads for engaging corresponding external threads on the jar. A lid for the jar placed against the lid press will be drawn against the rim of the jar after air is pumped out of the jar through the cap. An airtight seal is established between the lid and the rim of the jar when air at normal atmospheric pressure enters the vacuum port, the pressure difference between the outside and inside of the jar forcing the lid onto the jar rim and sealing the jar. A prying plate positioned on the top of the cap permits removal of the lid without deforming the lid beyond its elastic limit, enabling lids to be removed and re-sealed against the jar.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil pour appliquer hermétiquement sous vide un couvercle sur un bocal comprenant une jupe de bouchon reliée à un bouchon. Le bouchon et la jupe de bouchon sont formés de sorte qu'ils comportent des filetages intérieurs destinés à venir en prise avec des filetages extérieurs correspondants sur le bocal. Un couvercle pour le bocal placé contre la presse à couvercle est attiré contre le bord du bocal après extraction de l'air du bocal par pompage à travers le bouchon. Un joint étanche à l'air est établi entre le couvercle et le bord du bocal lorsque de l'air à pression atmosphérique normale entre dans l'orifice de mise sous vide, la différence de pression entre l'extérieur et l'intérieur du bocal forçant le couvercle sur le bord du bocal et fermant le bocal hermétiquement. Une plaque d'ouverture positionnée sur la partie supérieure du bouchon permet de retirer le couvercle sans déformer le couvercle au-delà de sa limite élastique, ce qui permet de retirer des couvercles et de les appliquer à nouveau hermétiquement contre le bocal.
