Another object of the invention is to provide a package for a material dispensing device including a container receiving housing and a removable cover member therefor, the housing and cover member each having side wall portions formed with opposed integral outwardly flared wall portions, the side wall portion of .the cover member being adapted to frictionally receive the side wall portion of the housing and the outwardly flared wall portions of the cover member abutting and complementing the shoulders formed by outwardly flared wall portions of the housing and having means engaging the housing shoulders for preventing the relative turning of the housing and cover member.

Still another object of the invention is to provide a package for a material dispensing device which includes a mechanical breakup device in the path of the material being dispensed, the breakup device being locked within the confines of the package so that accidental displacement thereof is prevented.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide a nasal applicator package for a material dispensing device that facilitates the relative movement out the material container and operating member therefor so that the material is dispensed, the nasal applicator package including a mechanical breakup device for the material being dispensed, the breakup device being positioned adjacent and within the app'licating nozzle and secured against accidental displacement therefrom during the dispensing operation.

It is further an object of the invention to provide a package for a device for dispensing materials under pressure, the device including a container for the material having a valve with a relatively movable valve stem projecting therefrom through which the material is dispensed, the package including a housing open at one end and having 'a side wall portion of substantially uniform thickness and a closed end portion, the container being adapted to be removably received in the housing with its valve stem \firictionally retained and held in a recess formed in the closed end portion and opening outwardly of the housing, the recess including a mechanical breakup device locked within the confines of the housing against accidental outward displacement and having a bore therethrough provided with bafiles for receiving the valve stem and providing a passage through which the material is dispensed, the container being en-gageable through the open end of the housing for applying a force thereto for moving the same relative to the valve stem, the side wall portion of the housing being formed with opposed integral outwardly flared wall means, the outwardly flared wall means being of substantially the same thickness as the side wall portion and flaring outwardly from the open end of the housing and ending short of the closed end thereof for providing shoulders at opposite sides of the housing against which cforce might be applied in a direction opposed to the force applied to the container for relatively moving the container and valve stem.

It is still further an object of the invention to provide a package for a material dispensing device which is adapted to be manufactured by quantity production methods, is readily assembled with the device and is of such rugged character it will function over long periods of time with freedom from all. difficulties.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent from the specification and claims, when considered in connection vvith the attached sheet of drawings, illustrating one form of the invention, wherein like characters represent like parts and in which:

FIGURE 1 is an elevational view, in section, of a package according to the invention in combination with a material dispensing device;

FIG. 2 is a view, taken in the direction of the arrows 2- 2 in FIG. 1, of the dispensing package;

FIG. 3 is a bottom view of the cover member of the dispensing package of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is an elevational View of a dispensing package, showing the material dispensing device in dotted lines, being manually operated as contemplated by the invention;

FIG. 5 is a fragmentary elevational view, in section, of the nasal applicator end of the dispensing package of FIG. 1; and

FIG. 6 is an end view of the mechanical breakup device embodied in the end of the dispensing device shown in FIG. 5.

Referring now to the drawings for a more detailed description of the invention, in FIGS. 1 and 4 a material dispensing device 10 is shown in combination with a dispensing package 11, the latter made in accordance with the invention, for protecting the dispensing device and facilitating its operation.

While the packaging concepts of the present invention are applicable to a variety of dispensing devices, which include a container for the material to be dispensed and a dispensing operating member connected thereto, in the herein illustrated form of the invention the device 10 comprises a well known type of aerosol unit including a substantially cylindrical container 12, for holding the material to be dispensed and the propellent means therefor, and a valve means (not shown, but of any well known type) having a reciprocable operating member or valve stem 13 projecting outwardly of the container for operating the valve means on being moved relative thereto, the operating member being formed with an axial passage (also not shown) through which the material is dispensed. As is customary, though not shown, the valve stem or operating-member is resiliently biased to normally project outwardly of the container.

It is common practice in the material dispensing art, and particularly in the field of aerosol devices, to package the dispensing device for decorative or protective reasons. In most instances the packaging of the device presents no problems, other than those normally encountered in providing a casing, since the deviceisoperated by manipulating the operating member which projects from the package. In certain devices, however, such as nasal applicators or the like, the operating member is inaccessible for manipulation and other means must be provided for operating the device.

The dispensing package '11, according to the present invention, in addition to forming the conventional decorative and protective casing for the device 10, provides the means for relatively moving the material container 12 and its dispensing valve stem 13 to operate the device.

As illustrated, the package 11, which may be molded or similarly formed from plastic or like material and is here shown as a nasal applicator for introducing medication or the like into a nasal passage, includes a housing 14, open at one end as at 15, having a cylindrical side wall portion 16 of substantially uniform thickness and a closed end portion 17. The side wall portion and closed end portion define within the housing a cavity 18 that substantially conforms in shape to the outline of material container 12 and is adapted to movably receive the container therein. As clearly shown in FIG. 4, the container is engageable through the open end of the housing for applying a force thereto, as by thumb pressure or the like, for moving the container in the cavity.

The closed end portion 17 of the housing 14 is formed with a recess 17a communicating the cavity 18 outwardly of the housing, the recess being adapted to receive and frictionally retain the operating member 13 of the dispensing device 10 so that the passage therein is communicated outwardly of the housing and the dispensing device is held in position relative to the package. While the closed end portion 17 of the housing and the recess 17a therein may take many forms, depending upon the ultimate use to which the dispensing device is directed, in the herein illustrated form of the invention the closed end portion is formed with a boss 19, providing a nozzle or applicator tip for insertion into a nasal passage, and the recess includes a passage extending through the boss.

While it is within the concepts of the invention for the recess 17a to comprise merely a bore of uniform diameter extending through the closed end portion of the housing for providing the passage for frictionally receiving the operating member of the dispensing device, in the nasal applicator illustrated, where it is desirable to diffuse or break up the body of material being dispensed, the recess includes a plurality of axially aligned communicating bores 20, 21 communicating with a bore 22 in an outer wall of the portion 17, said bores 20, 21 being adapted to receive and frictionally hold a mechanical breakup device 23, the bore 24 of which receives the operating member 13 and provides the passage through which the material is dispensed.

The mechanical breakup device 23, which may take any form well known to the art, but preferably has its passage 24 interrupted by baffles 25 or the like for providing a tortuous path 24a for breaking up the material being dispensed, is locked in the recess 17 1 to prevent its accidental displacement and discharge into the nasal passage during the dispensing operation. As illustrated most clearly in FIG. 5, the mechanical breakup device 23 is locked in the recess by forming the axially aligned bores 20, 21 and 22 of reduced diameter relative to one an- [i other, progressing from the cavity 18 outwardly, thereby providing shoulders 26 and 27 against which shoulders 28 and 29, formed on the breakup device, abut.

In order to dispense the material from the container 12, by relatively moving the container and the housing carrying the dispensing operating member 13, shoulders 34) are provided at opposite sides of the housing against which a force, such as finger pressure, may be applied in a direction opposed to the force moving the container through the open end 15 of the housing. While the shoulders 30 may be provided in any known manner and take any desired form, in the preferred form of the invention illustrated they comprise outwardly flared wall portions 31 formed integral with the side wall portion 16 of the housing and flaring outwardly from the open end thereof and ending short of the closed end portion. It will be noted that the outwardly flared wall portions 31, which have their sides gently tapering into the surface of the housing side wall portion 16, are of substantially the same thickness as the side wall portion to eliminate strains and the like when the dispensing package is manufactured by a molding operation or the like.

In order to complete the dispensing package 11 and protect the nozzle 19 when the applicator is not in use, a removable cover member 32 is provided as shown in FIGS. 1 and 3. The cover member, which may be formed of the same material and in a manner similar to the package housing 14 and defines a chamber 33 for receiving the closed end portion of the housing, has an end wall 34 and a side Wall portion 35, the latter including a depending annular skirt 36 for frictionally receiving a portion of the housing side wall and holding the cover member in place. In a manner similar to that described in connection with the package housing, the cover member 32 is formed with opposed outwardly flared wall portions 37, which are adapted to complement and abut the shoulders 31% of the housing for providing a symmetrical appearance to the overall package and close the pockets formed by the housing shoulders. Depending projections 38, formed integral with the outwardly flared portions 37 of the cover member, engage the shoulders 30 of the housing and extend into the pockets formed thereby for preventing the cover member from turning relative to the housing.

Thus, among others, the various objects and advantages of the invention as aforenoted have been achieved, Obviously numerous changes in construction may be resorted to without departing from the concepts of the invention as defined in the claims.
