A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11891218B2) describes a unique dispensing bottle design that includes a container body with discontinuous threads on the neck and a closure cap with a control device. The closure cap features a base with base threads and ratchet projections that engage the container body threads to prevent manual removal of the cap. The control device allows for reclosable movement between a closed position inhibiting fluid egress and an open position permitting controlled dispensing. A disk attached to the base creates a mixing chamber, ensuring stable fluid equilibrium without leakage even when the bottle is inverted. The design enables controlled dispensing through partial annular slots and a central opening in the base, with pressure application activating dispensing and release of pressure stopping it promptly.

The patent also details additional features such as a dome-shaped surface on the base, a flip-top lid for the control device, and the absence of a silicone rubber valve in the closure cap. The design aims to prevent separate dispensing of different fluids, such as serum and ketchup, without the need for a removable liner. The dispensing bottle is constructed with recyclable materials and includes tamper-evident features to ensure product integrity. The innovative design of the dispensing bottle offers a practical and efficient solution for controlled dispensing of fluids while maintaining stability and preventing leakage, making it a valuable addition to the packaging industry.
