  • Patent number: 9010589
    Abstract: A cap assembly having a body, a sealing membrane and a retaining ring. A spout engagement channel is positioned on the bottom surface of the body. An opening extends through the body and includes a recessed circumferential channel and a membrane engaging flange. The sealing membrane covers the opening and includes a body engaging flange and a pierceable surface. The sealing membrane is positioned upon the membrane engaging flange so that the body engaging flange and the membrane engaging flange are in overlying engagement. The retaining ring includes a tab, a sealing membrane engagement surface and an inner wall structure. The retaining ring is positioned in overlying engagement with the sealing membrane. Extension of the tab into the recessed circumferential channel releasably maintains said overlying engagement and biases the retaining ring against the membrane. The inner wall structure of the retaining ring extends radially inward beyond the membrane engaging flange.

  • Publication number: 20150048111
    Abstract: A tap for a flexible package having a dosing dispenser. The tap can be coupled to a spout of a flexible bag (such as the type that is provided for bag in box packaging). The tap permits the application of metered doses from the flexible bag. As the flexible bag is emptied, the flexible bag collapses, as the dosing dispenser generally prohibits the passage of air back into the flexible bag when the flowable material is emptied therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20150028065
    Abstract: A connector for a self sealing fitment that includes a body, a lower flange, and a locking mechanism. The connector is configured to sealingly engage with a cap coupled to a spout of a flexible bag by sealingly engaging with a sealing membrane of the cap. The locking mechanism facilitates the maintaining of the same in the inserted configuration. A lockout collar is provided to preclude inadvertent and undesirable coupling between a connector and a sealing membrane of a cap.

  • Tap
    Patent number: 8870039
    Abstract: A tap for use in association with bag in box containers including a body, a plug member and a drip limiting assembly. The body includes a tap nozzle with a dispensing opening. A nozzle opening is placeable in fluid communication the dispensing opening and with a bag of a bag in box container. The plug member has a second end structurally configured to interface with the dispensing opening and with the plug member. The plug member is selectively actuatable between a closed orientation and an open orientation. In the open orientation, the nozzle opening is in fluid communication with the dispensing opening. In the closed orientation, the nozzle opening is precluded from fluid communication with the dispensing opening. The drip limiting assembly is disposed at the dispensing opening. The drip limiting assembly limits the formation of drips after the plug member is returned to a closed orientation.
