Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9838103A1] A closure (1) for a container (31) for fluids comprises a cap (5) rotatably mounted on the neck of a container, the cap having an axial product outlet passage (6) and a valve (7) movable along the passage to open and close the passage. The valve (7) is in a threaded engagement with the passage (6) and is prevented from rotating with the passage by means of a guide sleeve (10) such that rotation of the cap (5) effects relative rotation between the valve (7) and the passage (6).
