CPC Definition - Subclass B67D

Last Updated Version: 2017.08
DISPENSING, DELIVERING OR TRANSFERRING LIQUIDS, NOT OTHERWISE PROVIDED FOR (cleaning pipes or tubes or systems of pipes or tubes B08B 9/02; emptying or filling of bottles, jars, cans, casks, barrels, or similar containers, not otherwise provided for B67C; water supply E03; pipe systems F17D; domestic hot-water supply systems F24D; measuring volume, volume flow, mass flow or liquid level, metering by volume G01F; coin-freed or like apparatus G07F)
Definition statement

This place covers:

  • Dispensing devices whereby beverages are dispensed from a tap or nozzle.
  • Fuel dispensing devices, wherein the fuel is liquid at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.
  • All liquid dispensing devices which are not classified in a subclass different than B67D.
Relationships with other classification places

Components or details (e.g. pumps, carbonators, cooling or heating arrangements etc...) of the devices are classified in B67D if those details are relevant for their structural association with the apparatus.

Components or details are NOT classified in B67D when for these aspects a (sub)group is provided in a subclass different than B67D (e.g. control taps for draught beverage dispensing are classified in B67D, domestic water taps, for which classification entries are present in the main group E03C 1/00, are not classified in B67D).
