Title:Container provided with a pressure equalization opening
Abstract: A process for the production of a container (1) comprising an outer container (2), an inner bag (3) disposed therein and a pressure equalisation opening (10) disposed in the outer container (2), and also a container (1) produced according to this process, is described, wherein firstly a pre-moulding, comprising two coaxial tubes, is first produced by co-extrusion with the help of a blow mould and with an outwardly-projecting base seam (5) being formed. The process is to form a pressure equalisation opening (10) in the outer container (2) of the container (1) without endangering the integrity of the container (1), wherein a lower wastage rate and higher productivity are to be achieved. This is attained by a process wherein the base seam (5) is partially cut off and a force which acts in the direction of the seam is introduced into the pre-moulding, which still has a temperature of 40.degree. C. to 70.degree. C., which force breaks open and plastically deforms the base seam (5) so that a pressure equalisation opening (10) is formed in the base area (4).

Filing Date:Apr 05, 2005
Application Number:11/099,196
Claims:1. A container having a container opening, the container comprising: (a) a substantially rigid outer container having a pressure equalization opening located in and/or near a seam in a base area thereof; and (b) an inner bag disposed in the outer container and at least partially fixed axially in the seam of the outer container, wherein the outer container and inner bag respectively comprise different thermoplastic plastics not bonded to each other.

2. The container according to claim 1, wherein the container is configured in the shape of a bottle having a bottle neck with a face side.

3. The container according to claim 2, wherein the bottle neck is configured with a projection on its face side extending outwards in the radial direction.

4. The container according to claim 3, wherein the projection is made only from the thermoplastic of the outer container.

5. The container according to claim 3, wherein the projection is made from both the thermoplastic of the outer container and the thermoplastic of the inner bag.

6. The container according to claim 3, wherein the inner bag is connected with the outer container by means of an upright or horizontal fold in the area of the projection.

7. The container according to claim 2, wherein the inner bag is fixed in the area of the bottle neck in addition to the fixing in the base area.

8. The container according to claim 7, wherein the bottle neck is configured with a projection on its face side extending outwards in the radial direction.

9. The container according to claim 8, wherein the projection is made only from the thermoplastic of the outer container.

10. The container according to claim 8, wherein the projection is made from both the thermoplastic of the outer container and the thermoplastic of the inner bag.

11. The container according to claim 8, wherein the inner bag is connected with the outer container by means of an upright or horizontal fold in the area of the projection.
