Abstract (en)

An apparatus for dispensing viscous fluids comprises a turntable (2) rotatable around an axis of rotation. A plurality of containers (1) containing the fluid to be dispensed are connected to the turntable in positions spaced about the circumference of the turntable. A plurality of pumps (17) are associated with each container for dispensing fluid therefrom and are attached to the turntable. The pumps have connectors (6) for releasably connecting the containers to the pumps. A stationary actuator (38) is positioned at the circumference of the turntable and is movable to and fro a first inoperative position disengaged from the turntable, a first operative position in engagement with one of the connectors, in which the connector is connected to the respective container, and a second operative position, in which the connector is disengaged from the container and the container may be removed and exchanged for another container. <IMAGE>
