20100038338Closure with perforating feature for container seals - A closure for sealing a container, in particular a container that, prior to first use by a consumer, includes an opening or aperture covered by a seal, wherein the closure is equipped with a perforating member adapted to open or break the seal, thereby enabling the consumer to access the contents of the container.02-18-2010
20090026165CLOSURE - The invention relates to a closure for a container containing a contents, particularly a bottle or the like made of plastic, glass or the like, with a cap, particularly made of plastic, for sealingly connecting to a neck of the container having an edge, with at least one cutter edge, which is placed around a central axis of the cap in the area of the internal width of the neck and which serves to cut through a closure film when the at least one cutter edge is axially displaced through the closure film. The cutter edge is placed on a holding sleeve, which is held in an essentially central manner by the cap by means of a flexible skirt and is to be displaced relative to the cap toward the closure film. The holding sleeve contains a component provided for mixing the contents of the container. A screw cap, which can be screwed onto and back from the cap, is provided with an initial screwed position, in which the closure film has not yet been ruptured, and with a stop screwed position after additional screwing on, in which the closure film is punctured by the at least one cutter edge and the component is exposed. The cap, after the sealing connection, remains permanently on the neck of the container, and the screw cap comprising, like a sport cap, a pouring and/or drinking opening. In the stop screwed position, the container contents are permitted to flow toward the screw cap and its pouring and/or drinking opening. When screwing the screw cap back into its initial position, flow to the screw cap and its pouring opening is interrupted once again.01-29-2009

20090159553Closure system for containers - A closure system for containers used for storing or administering substances in the form of liquids, pastes or powders, which system in one embodiment includes a cap, provided with a through-hole, and a closure element, wherein the cap holds the closure element with a force fit and/or form fit on the container, in the area of the container opening that is to be closed, by means of a catch element present on the container. For this purpose, the end face which surrounds the container opening, and on which the closure element bears, comprises a depression. The closure element is a virus-proof, bacteria-proof and spore-proof film that lies on the end face and, at least in some areas, over the depression. The cap is then fitted in place, an elastomer ring or adhesive ring is arranged between the closure element and the depression and fills the depression. With the present invention, a closure system for containers is provided that allows the container to be securely closed permanently and in a virus-proof, bacteria-proof and spore-proof manner.06-25-2009
20100044336Anti-counterfeiting Bottle Cap - This invention is related to an anti-counterfeiting bottle cap that includes an outer cap made up of an upper outer cap and a lower outer cap connected by a breaking ring and an inner cap. The said inner cap at the end of which a protuberant identifying ring is set and the upper outer cap are fastened with each other. The breaking ring lies above the identifying ring which inserts in the sunk head on top of the lower outer cap.02-25-2010
20110168659Bottle Cap Device - A bottle cap device for a container includes a bottle cap, a subpackage vessel, a guiding structure, and a linkage structure. A retainer groove and a retainer member form a clutch structure, wherein the retainer groove and the retainer member are mated with each other and are disposed between said bottle cap and an outside surface of a top periphery of the subpackage vessel. A circular slotting tool is disposed within a containing cavity, wherein said circular slotting tool has a center hole and a cutting edge protruded on the bottom thereof. The guiding structure is disposed between said slotting tool and said subpackage vessel, wherein when the slotting tool is turned anticlockwise, the guiding structure limits the slotting tool to move downwards. The linkage structure includes a neck-shrinking helical block protruded downwardly from the bottom surface of the cover, and has a helical groove provided in a sidewall of a center hole of the slotting tool for mating with the helical block, wherein when the bottle cap is turned anticlockwise, the helical block pushes said helical groove to force the slotting tool to move under limitation of the guiding structure, and thus a cutting edge of the slotting tool opens a bottom separator of the subpackage vessel.07-14-2011
