Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0732270A1] The cylindrical grease polythene cartridge for use in a distributing gun has a tubular body (1) closed at one end by a bottom (2) moulded with cartridge side wall. Its other end is sealed by a removable plug. A connection zone of least resistance (4) is provided between the bottom periphery and the end of the tubular body. This zone is formed by a circular groove whose depth is equal to a fraction of the thickness of the bottom. A gripping ring (5) connected to the bottom enables easy separation of the bottom along the whole of its surface before use in the gun to obtain a smooth passage through which the grease can flow. Inside the connecting zone, in the radial direction, is a second zone (6) of least resistance, concentric with the first, so as to form between them a circular tearable band (7). These external and internal zones are connected by radial connecting zones of least resistance (9), directed towards the bottom centre, forming a tearing band (10'), whose end is connected to the gripping ring.
