Description:
APPARATUS FOR ENHANCING A DRINK BOTTLE

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present disclosure relates to drink bottles in general, and to drink bottles that include carbonated drinks, in particular.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

A carbonated drink is a drink that bubbles and fizzes with carbon dioxide gas. The process by which the gas dissolves in the drink is known as carbonation. This process can occur naturally, such as in naturally carbonated mineral water that absorbs carbon dioxide from the ground, or by man-made processes, as is the case in most soft drinks and soda waters. This involves pumping carbon dioxide into the drink at high pressure, then sealing the container. Since the solubility of carbon dioxide is less at lower pressure, the dissolved gas escapes as bubbles when the container is opened and the pressure is relieved.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

One exemplary embodiment of the disclosed subject matter is an apparatus for enhancing a carbonated drink bottle.

One problem disclosed by the disclosed subject matter is the gas that is escaped as bubbles when the container is opened causing the decreasing of the taste of the carbonated drink. Such a problem typically occurs when the bottle is opened several times.

One solution is an apparatus for sealing a passage against the escape of gases. The apparatus comprises one or more barriers mounted into the inside of the bottle at a certain height from the bottom of the bottle. Each barrier is extended with a tube, in one embodiment the tube is extended into a portion of the opening of the bottle. That is to say, the tube is ended at a portion of an opening of the bottle. The tube may have a cover. When the tube is covered the gas in the area of the bottle that is limited between the barrier from which the tube is extended and another barrier or between the barrier from which the tube is extended and the bottom of the bottle cannot escape.

In one embodiment the opening of the bottie is partitioned into at least two portions such that at least one portion can be closed for holding the gas in a portion of the bottle while at least one portion can be opened for allowing a person to drink from another portion of the bottie. The number of partitions of the opening is equal to the number of barriers. Thus each tube of each barrier is extended into it's own partition in the opening of the bottie. In one embodiment each partition of the opening has it's own cover such that a person may drink from one partition while the one or more other partitions are closed.

In one other embodiment the tube is extended into a certain height below the cover of the bottie and is covered. When a person finishes drinking from the cover of the bottle he may open the cover of the tube and drink from that area that is trapped between the barrier and the cover.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Fig. 1 shows an exemplary bottie with an apparatus for enhancing the bottle, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the subject matter. The apparatus includes a barrier 102 mounted at a certain height from the bottom 106 of a bottle 100. A tube 103 is extended from the barrier 102 and is ended with a first cover 111. The first cover 111 is mounted on a portion of an opening 108 of the bottle 100 while the other portion of the opening 108 of the bottle 100 is covered with a second cover 112.

When a person opens cover 112 the person can drink the carbonated drink that is tapped in the area of the bottle that is limited between the barrier 102 and the cover 112. The carbonated drink that is trapped in the area limited between the bottom 106 of the bottie 100, the barrier 102 and the tube 103 is not affected by the opening of the cover 112 and the gas from the drink in this area does not escape when opening the cover 112.

Fig. 2 shows an exemplary bottle with liquid inside a closed portion of the bottle, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the disclosed subject matter. The liquid is contained in the area trapped between the bottom 106 of the bottle 100, the barrier 102 and the tube 103. The other portion of the bottle 100 does not contain the liquid since a person has drunk this liquid via opening 112.

Fig. 3 shows an exemplary bottle with two barriers, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the disclosed subject matter.

Bottle 100 includes a first barrier 102 mounded into the inside of the bottie at a certain height from the basis (bottom) 106 of the bottie 100. The first barrier 102 is extended by a first tube 103. The first tube 103 is extended into a portion of the opening 108 of the bottle 100 and is covered with a first cover 104.

A second barrier 106 is mounded into the inside of the bottle 100 at a certain height from the basis (bottom) 106 of the bottle 100. The second barrier 106 is extended with a first tube 107. The first tube 107 is extended into a portion of the opening 108 of the bottle 100 and is covered with a second cover 109. A person may drink from any portion of the opening 108 while keeping the other portions covered until he drinks from the other portions. For example, a person may open the cover 104 and drink the liquid that is trapped between the basis 106 of the bottle 100, the barrier 102 and the tube 103. While the person drinks the gas of the carbonated drink that is trapped in the other portions of the bottle 100 does not escape from the bottle 100. The person may, at another time, open cover 105 and drink the drink that is trapped between the barrier 106 and the cover 105. While the person drinks, the gas of the carbonated drink that is trapped between the first barrier 102, the second barrier 106 and the tube 107 does not escape from the bottle.

Fig. 4 shows exemplary covers of a bottle, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the disclosed subject matter.

Cover 401 is divided into three covers: cover 104, cover 105 and cover 109. Two of the covers (for example cover 104 and cover 109} are each an end of a certain tube that is extended from a certain barrier. The other cover (for example cover 105) covers the space that is trapped between the highest barrier (the barrier that is the closest to the opening of the bottle) and the other cover. Each cover of the three covers can be opened and/or closed separately and indecently from the other covers. Such a cover may be opened by a tab or may be screwed to the open of the bottle (not shown in this figure).

Cover 402 is divided into two covers cover 111 and cover 112. One cover (for example cover 111 ) is an end of a tube that is extended from a certain barrier. The other cover (for example cover 112) covers the space that is trapped between the barrier and the other cover. Each cover can be opened and/or closed separately and independently from the other covers. Such a cover may be opened by a tab or may be screwed to the open of the bottle (not shown in this figure). Cover 111 is curved while cover 112 is concaved.

Cover 403 is divided into two covers cover 111 and cover 112. One cover (for example cover 111 ) is an end of a tube that is extended from a certain barrier. The other cover (for example cover 112) covers the space that is trapped between the barrier and the other cover. Each cover can be opened and/or closed separately and independently from the other covers. Such a cover may be opened by a tab or may be screwed to the open of the bottie (not shown in this figure). Cove 111 r and cover 112 have a shape of a half full moon.

Fig. 5 shows a top view of the opening of a bottie, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the disclosed subject matter. In some embodiments an upper cover (not shown in the figure) covers the bottie. The upper cover may be any kind of a cover that is used for covering a beverage bottle. In some embodiments underneath the upper cover there are two openings 110 and 120 for two inner covers. The two opening are underneath the opening of the bottle. Opening 110 is opened while opening 120 is closed. Opening 120 may be an end of a tube which is extended from a barrier that is mounted inside the bottie. A person may remove the upper cover and may drink from opening 110. The gas that is trapped between the barrier and the covered opening 120 does not escape. When the person finishes drinking the carbonated drink from the opening 110 and whishes to drink more, the person removes the cover from opening 120. The cover may then be placed on the opening 110 and may be used for covering opening 120 between session of drinking from the opening 120.

Fig 6 shows another embodiment of an apparatus for enhancing a bottle, in accordance with some exemplary embodiments of the disclosed subject matter. Bottle 100 includes a barrier 102 that is extended with a tube 103. The tube 103 is extended into a certain height below the cover 108 of the bottle 100. The tube 103 is covered by cover 601. Cover 601 may have a tab. When a person finishes drinking from the cover of the bottie 100 he may open the cover of the tube 601 and drink from that area that is trapped between the barrier 102, the tube 103 and the cover 601.
