  • Patent number: 11873155
    Abstract: The container is suitable for the separate packaging and storage of at least two contents, which need to be combined in the preparation of a ready-to-use product. Two container bodies each provided with a coupler are assembled by using a separate interface device as intermediate connector. A mixing mechanism is formed when inserting the couplers through opposite annular rings of the connector of the interface device. The interface device includes two openers having a different or opposite orientation, typically arranged inside a same puncturing structure of generally cylindrical shape, for releasing an internal passage initially sealed between two closure members. The closure members respectively close an access opening of the container bodies, hermetically. Relative movement of the closure members toward the openers allows communication between a first compartment and a second compartment.
